Hooked on Games

Andrews University has invited Andrew Doan, a neuroscientist, to talk with undergraduate students about the effects of video games on the brain. His main presentation will be at Pioneer Memorial Church on Thursday, March 5, at 11:30 a.m. for Thursday Series.

Doan is a recognized expert in technology and video game addiction. With a doctoral degree in neuroscience, his background in molecular neuroscience adds in-depth knowledge of the areas of internet addiction, video game addiction, and technology addiction. He spends 80 percent of his time in medical research as head of addictions & resilience research for the U.S. Navy in the Department of Mental Health. Doan is also the author of "Hooked on Games."

Pirating the Caribbean Mind: Theoretical Piracy on High Seas of Colonization

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Tuesday February 24, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenters:  Dr. Larry Burton, Professor of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum; Editor of the Journal                                      of Research on Christian Education
                       Dr. Anneris Coria-Navia, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Learning & Curriculum

Pirating the Caribbean Mind: Theoretical Piracy on High Seas of Colonization

In this presentation we will reflect on the impact of colonial and postcolonial experiences in the 20th-century epistemologies, and hegemonies which underlie imperialist actions and postcolonial thought. We will then highlight educational and social practices and institutions shaped by colonial and postcolonial realities. These include schooling, access to services, social values and norms, and culture. These introductory sections will enable us to explore how colonial and postcolonial actions have “pirated the mind” of Caribbean citizens. Included in this section will be a presentation of the appropriation of uniquely Caribbean theoretical constructs by other cultures in the name of “globality.” We will conclude the presentation with implications for North American educators.

Presenter:  Anna Piskozub, Graduate Service Coordinator, School or Education, Andrews University

 Exercise Motivators and Exercise Causality among Andrews University Students: A Correlational Study 

The purpose of this study was to identify the most important exercise motives that influence Andrews University undergraduate students’ choices and behaviors toward acquiring a more physically active lifestyle. A second purpose was to investigate whether Andrews University students were autonomous, controlled, or impersonal in the regulation of their behavior toward exercise. Data collected from 316 undergraduate students were statistically analyzed by using descriptive statistics, bivariate, and correlational analysis. Findings revealed significant exercise motivation predictor variables for three exercise causality orientation profiles: autonomous, control, and impersonal. In addition, it exposed significant differences in the exercise motives and exercise causality orientation between the students from the School of Health Professions and other schools.

WSC Call for 2015-16 Scholarship Applications

WSC Call for 2015-16 Scholarship Applications

The 2015-2016 Women's Scholarship Committee scholarship applications for graduate women students are available in paper form at the Administrative Assistant's desk in the English Department in Nethery Hall or through e-mail attachment by writing Dr. Stella Greig at  greigs@andrews.edu. Please put "WSC Scholarships" in the subject line. Completed applications are due at noon, Friday, March 20.

There are two kinds of application forms.  One form is for the Steele Scholarship, which is for women who have served as cross-cultural missionaries for at least 4 years and who are working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools.  The other form is a general application for women working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools.

General application forms will be considered for several different named scholarships (which have their own criteria--e.g., must be:  a Seminary student, a School of Education in educational or counseling psychology student, or a student working on a music degree, etc.), as well as the more general WSC Advisory Scholarship and Honored Women Scholarship.  To give applicants the best chance to receive an award, the committee will determine for which scholarship an application fits best.  Along with the application form, students will need to request letters of recommendation from two different individuals (either from two professors or a professor and a work supervisor).  The letters of recommendation should include the professor/supervisor's assessment of the worthiness of the applicant in terms of scholarship, work habits and the likelihood that the student will meet her goals.  Scholarship funds awarded are to be applied towards tuition for the 2015-16 school year.  Questions may be sent to greigs@andrews.edu.

Campus Signage Policy

As part of the planning for the University entrance, the Arboretum Council and the Facilities Management Committee voted temporary signage would be prohibited at the University entrance and along J.N. Andrews Boulevard. This policy was deemed reasonable because of the increased visibility of the official entrance to the University and the new way-finding signs installed throughout campus.

Signs placed there will be removed and can be picked up at the Integrated Marketing & Communication building. Signage left at IMC for 30 days will be disposed of.

Banners may be placed at the terminus of J.N. Andrews Boulevard on the poles provided.

Reservations/arrangements to install and store banners can be made with Plant Services. When providing guests with directions to campus, weather-resistant boxes to place flyers about your event have been installed for your convenience near the large campus map at the Welcome Globe.

AICER Presents Dr. Nadia Nosworthy

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Monday, January 26, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter:  Dr. Nadia Nosworthy, Graduate Psychology & Counseling Assistant Professor, Andrews University

Assessment of Early Numeracy Skills
There is growing evidence to suggest math skills are just as important as reading skills when predicting a child’s academic success and overall well-being. Children’s ability to compare symbolic (e.g., Arabic numerals) and non-symbolic (e.g., dot arrays) numerical magnitudes has been found to correlate with their math achievement. Consequently my colleagues and I designed a two-minute paper-and-pencil assessment to measure kindergarten children’s ability to compare symbolic and non-symbolic numerical magnitudes and assessed the degree to which performance on this measure explains individual differences in achievement. Research results revealed that symbolic and non-symbolic number comparison accuracy scores correlated with individual differences in arithmetic achievement and participants’ scores on the paper-and-pencil test in kindergarten were a significant predictor of math performance in grade one. The findings suggest the important role of symbolic and non-symbolic processing in children’s higher-level math abilities and also highlight the potential of this tool for assessment of early foundational numerical abilities.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 015
