Student Teaching, Meet Google Meet

Presenter Names: Maggie Baltz and Marissa King

In this presentation, we will discuss our experiences student teaching in a virtual environment at a local elementary school. Marissa will be talking about her time in the first grade, while Maggie will be discussing her time in the fourth grade. We will share our daily schedule including materials and resources that were often used as well as how we approached the pacing guide. Next, we will compare and contrast our experiences being placed in a primary grade and an intermediate grade in this remote setting. Finally, we will share what we will take away from this experience and bring into our own classrooms.


Learning to Deliver Educational Programming Outside the Classroom

The final project involves each student proposing their own project idea where they will apply what they have learned in the course as they explore topics in more depth and create materials that can be useful for them when working with culturally and linguistic diverse individuals and families as future professionals. With faculty input students research and complete their projects: a Cultural Curriculum Project for education majors and a Cultural Project for non education majors. These projects are individual endeavors that engage students in completing meaningful projects that they can then draw from when working as professionals in their fields of study.

Global Citizenship and K-pop

Presenter Names: Krista Coates, Danielle Gibson, Elsa Rotramel, Rachel Ryan, Julia Seaman, Barrett Van

Students will present their research papers they developed in IN 350-05 Global Citizenship and K-pop in January 2021. The course was designed to offer an opportunity to explore the concepts of global citizenship from the theoretical, cultural, and political perspectives and to challenge students to think critically about what global citizenship can and should mean. While developing research papers, students demonstrated their understanding of the ethical problem through a well-positioned argument, made an ethical judgment about some aspects of a global issue, and engaged in constructing and reconstructing their identity as global citizens.


The Fundamental Characteristics of Healthcare Providers with Effective Communication Skills 

Presenter Name: Shae Giovanni 

The qualities that a healthcare provider exhibits during a provider-patient interaction may reflect upon the ability of a provider to effectively communicate. Characteristics such as clear and concise language, confidence, empathy, and active listening are all important in having effective communication. Reflecting on which characteristics are most important to the general population may encourage providers to focus on exhibiting certain characteristics that encourage effective communication with their patients. A healthcare provider’s ability to communicate directly affects the success or failure of a patient’s outcome. What characteristics make an individual great at communicating in a healthcare setting? This research aims to identify the essential characteristics of a healthcare provider with excellent communication and how these communication characteristics affect the provider-patient experience.


Cupping versus Scraping: A Literature Review 

Presenter Name: Zach Kingston 

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage (IASTM) is a large component within the rehabilitation domain.  Many different types of massages are included in IASTM, including pressure point release, effleurage, cupping and scraping. Which form of IASTM is more beneficial to the student-athlete/patient? This research will focus on whether cupping or scraping is superior in the field of IASTM. 


What Prevents Student-Athletes From Seeking Treatment?

Presenter Name: Noah Jahangir 

Student-athletes are vulnerable to injuries by nature of their active status. The Athletic Training Room is used to provide services that prevent, evaluate, and rehabilitate athletic injuries. This study seeks to examine the reasons behind why athletes do and do not seek treatment in the Athletic Training Room for injuries.


Psychosocial Effects Following Athletic Injury

Presenter Name: Jennifer Miller

It is easy to get caught up in someone's outstanding athletic ability, but there is more hidden behind the talent seen during competition. It is essential to remember mental health is just as important as physical health. Psychosocial disorders are often overlooked, especially when involving a student-athlete. This study focuses on the challenges, sensitivity, fear, and loss of self-worth that student-athletes may experience following an athletic injury.


Re-evaluating the Accuracy of the Standard for Body Temperature 

Presenter Name: Nick Laramee 

When it comes to examining a patient, vital sign measurements are important factors that reflect the health of the patient.  Body temperature is one of these measurements. Because of its importance, it deserves a second look at how accurate these readings are and how these readings impact interventions. This research aims to determine if the standard for body temperature that is used is still accurate or if it needs to be updated.
