AICER Presents Dr. Isadore Newman

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) presents: 

Dr. Isadore Newman,  Visiting Scholar, College of Education, Florida International University Adjunct Professor, and Professor Emeritus, The  Akron University, on Wednesday July 30, at 11:30 am.

Topic:  Considering the Purpose of Research When Identifying Quantitative and Qualitative Commonalities

A review of the methodological literature describing mixed-methods, quantitative and qualitative research paradigms suggest that though many have rejected the so-called paradigm wars there remains much focus on what is different about each research tradition. This presentation offers a conceptual discussion of a series of qualitative and quantitative research endeavors that share common underpinnings and purpose.  Dr. Newman will demonstrate several commonalities between approaches with the hope of encouraging readers to allow research questions to guide methodological choices and avoid overemphasizing division between research paradigms.  

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall, Room 013. 

Online participants to login as "Guest" at  https://andrews.adobeconnect.com/_a877709416/research/   or  http://www.andrews.edu/sed/aicer/researchwebinars/  whether or not they are registered  at Andrews University

IE Browser Vulnerability Resolved

Microsoft has released a patch for the Internet Explorer vulnerability that resulted in the recommendations to the university to restrict its use on April 30, 2014.  This patch has been installed on most of the university owned Microsoft systems so that it is safe to resume use of Internet Explorer if desired.  However, if you work in a department that provides its own personal computer support, you should check with that person to make sure that the patch has been installed on your computer before using IE. 

For any personally owned computer systems, make sure that Windows updates have been applied so that the patch is installed.  If you have any questions, please contact the Helpdesk at 471-6016 or by email at helpdesk@andrews.edu

Bring Your Heart to Work: Invitation to Presentation

Faculty, staff and students are invited to a presentation being held as part of Lakeland HealthCare Hospital Week. The senior leadership team at Lakeland is presenting inspirational speaker Allison Massari, named one of the “Top 10 Best Speakers in North America for ‘Motivation’” by Meetings & Conventions magazine.

Thursday, May 15, 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Andrews University Howard Performing Arts Center
Berrien Springs

Allison will re-energize, invigorate and motivate our associates. She will talk to us about compassion and illustrate why bringing our hearts to work makes a difference.

Allison Massari knows that you have the power to transform lives. She has been a medical patient and educator, and she understands health care intimately. Allison has experienced firsthand the essential value of what personalized health care delivered by committed providers means when facing the horror of life-threatening conditions. As a burn survivor and traumatic brain injury patient she draws on her personal experiences with empathic devoted healthcare workers. It's a passionate story of finding the internal strength and commitment for hope to flourish - and to inspire the collaboration of teams of medical personnel to profoundly demonstrate the power of authentic patient-provider relationships. Her desire is for you to feel reinvigorated for why you went into healthcare in the first place.

Those interested in attending the event at Andrews should RSVP to Peggy Juhl at pjuhl@lakelandregional.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Beyond Beliefs Study

Have you ever wondered what young adults (age 18-32) really think of the 28 Fundamentals of Adventism? 

The Andrews University Religion Department, in collaboration with the North American Division and ClergyEd.com, undertook a comprehensive and data rich study over the past three semesters where close to 700 young adults from all over the world expressed their attitudes towards every single one of the 28 beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  It also explored a range of sociocultural, spiritual, and life experiential issues with this participant group.

The findings of the first stage of the study are now available in hardcopy and Kindle versions at your local ABC – Christian Book Center in Berrien Springs or online globally from Amazon.com.

This is a book that no church leader, parent, minister, teacher, youth worker, or even young adults themselves should be without. 

For more information about this groundbreaking study, see www.beyond-beliefs.com.

 

About the Study:  We set out to discover what Millennial young adults really think of every single one of the 28 Fundamentals of Adventism, what they liked and disliked, and what aspects resonated most with them.  We also identified areas where the church is succeeding with regard to the 28 Fundamentals and areas where there is room for improvement.   The study placed a strong emphasis on giving a real voice to Millennial young adults aged 18-32.  The inference and suggestions from this research were often the direct responses of the Millennial young adults themselves.  Some findings include:

  • Young adults did not really know the 28 Beliefs of Adventism, even though the majority of those in the study were baptized.
  • Young adults generally liked the beliefs, especially those that provided them some personal benefit.  For example, the Sabbath was the most popular belief as it provided a guilt free day off from work, study, and chores.  Jesus was also the most popular member of the Trinity because young adults stated he was the one who actually saves humans from their sins and provides a real world example for how to live.
  • Preaching or lecturing to young adults when they are a passive audience, even in specialist youth meetings by youth “experts” has little efficacy in teaching them the 28 Beliefs.  However, when young adults are provided the opportunity to actively articulate and internalize the belief for themselves and express their views about it in discussions, their retention and appreciation of the beliefs is substantially higher.
  • Early baptism was something that many young adults felt pushed into and 2/3 of those who were baptized before age 14 stated that if they could do it again, they would have waited until they were older to be baptized.


See www.beyond-beliefs.com for more information or to sign up for email updates regarding the study.
