International Conference in the Ukraine
Ohio University Delegation to Travel to International Conference in the Ukraine
This September, four professors from Ohio University will travel to the Carpathians/Appalachians International Conference 2013 at the Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University (PNU) in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. The journey to the Carpathians will take place from Sept. 21-28 and include a stay at a conference center in the little mountain village of Mykulychyn.
The conference will explore similarities between the Appalachian and Carpathian cultures, economies, and histories. For the Ohio University delegation, Dr. Geoff Buckley (Georgraphy) will first give a presentation on the environmental and social impact of mountaintop removal mining. Dr. Bernhard Debatin (Journalism) will then talk about the public debate on hydraulic fracturing, highlighting the difference between optimistic industry projections and the "hidden costs" of fracking for residents, the environment, and the tax payer. In her presentation, Dr. Michele Morrone (Social and Public Health) will explore effects of fracking on human health and the scientific uncertainty surrounding this issue. A cultural-linguistic comparison of the Appalachian and Carpathian Highlands is the focus of Dr. Michelle O'Malley (Linguistics) paper, with a particular emphasis on the separateness of these cultures from contemporary mainstream culture.
Stacy Leeman will have two works on display at the 77th annual Midyear exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art. The exhibition opens on June 30 and runs through Aug. 18.
Stacy Leeman will have 3 paintings in the 34th Annual Mini-Works on Paper exhibition at Jacksonville State University.

Do we need more “Doing” activities or “Thinking” activities in the field practicum?
How do MSW students learn new professional skills in field practicum? Does students' reflection affect the use of other learning activities during the field practicum? Students in field practica participate in activities that involve observation, doing (participatory), and conceptual linkage. In this study of MSW students, conceptual linkage activities represent students' overall reflective capacity to integrate classroom theory and field practice. The results indicate that conceptual linkage activities are more strongly related to learning outcomes than observation or participatory activities. There is also a significant interaction effect between participatory activities and conceptual linkage activities when students' satisfaction is considered. Discussion includes suggestions for increasing students' reflection to integrate classroom and field.

Patterns of Field Learning Activities and their Relation to Learning Outcomes
Field practicum is an active learning process. This study identified the different learning stages or processes that student experience during their field practicum.
First-year MSW students in field practica were asked how much they had engaged in educational learning activities such as observation, working independently, process recordings, and conceptual linkage activities for their practice. Forty eight students completed a questionnaire three times over the first-year field practicum. The results showed that observation and process recording decreased over the time points. However, most of participatory activities and conceptual linkage activities increased. Conceptual linkage activities were more strongly related to learning outcomes than observational or participatory activities. The discussion includes suggestions for enhancing student learning over the course of field practicum.

Top Down, Bottom Up, Implementation Guidelines, or Chaos and Confusion! Education Policy Implementation in Jamaica
Winsome Chunnu-Brayda journal article published in Journal of Eastern Caribbean Studies
This study was conducted in two Jamaican parishes: Kingston and St. Thomas. Designed as a case study, the research planned to explore top-down and bottom-up implementation approaches, as well as political model theory. What efforts make programs succeed, and what problems make them fail?
This study is part of a larger study. This is a first-hand account of implementers’ challenges with implementing. Interviews and document analysis were the main techniques of data collection. The study concludes by highlighting five major findings and suggestions for policy implementation.
