Using learning maps to foster sense of belonging in elementary students

Tom Wilkinson
Teachers have always known about the importance of positive adult and peer relationships in the classroom. However, time and curriculum pressures can lead some teachers to avoid developing an interconnected learning environment that enhances students' sense of belonging. The purpose of this study was to explore how to foster an elementary classroom learning environment that develops a rich sense of student belonging. The researcher was also examining their teaching experience in this process, especially related...

The effects of emotional labour on teacher identity

Marsie L. Fisk
This purpose of this study was to share the experience of mid-career teachers as they continued to develop and understand their personal and professional identities, and to identify how emotional labor impacts identity. Through an online survey inclusive of closed and open-ended questions, participants provided responses that addressed participant demographics, personal and professional identity, and emotional labour in teaching. These findings provided insight into possible structures that support teachers as they navigate and manage the...

How I use personal stories to build connections in a middle school

Corrie L. Goessman
What has become my most magnificent skill is my ability to cultivate and create connections between learners within their school community by using their personal stories. I have learned that when a child is free to share his or her own stories they become part of a classroom community, connected to their learning, validated as a person and confident in the classroom. These attributes are necessary for students to succeed at school. As a teacher,...

Rethinking learning spaces: how Reggio Emilia environments promote critical thinking

Jessica L. Koop
The study explores the historical influences and pedagogical practices of the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, and how particular aspects of its environment work as a third teacher to influence and promote critical thinking. This thesis draws connections between constructivist theory, social constructivism, critical thinking, and the key values and principles of the Reggio Emilia approach. In particular, exploration of the atelier, space, colour, lighting, materials, provocations, and documentation reveals a powerful link...

The objectives of this study were to describe and evaluate potential drivers of genetic structure in Canadian breeding populations of the Ovenbird, Seiurus aurocapilla. We performed genetic analyses on feather samples of individuals from six study sites using nuclear microsatellites. We also assessed species identity and population genetic structure of quill mites (Acariformes, Syringophilidae). For male Ovenbirds breeding in three study sites, we collected light-level geolocator data to document migratory paths and identify the wintering...

Constitutive communication in the (re)creation of community

Johanna Michelle Henderson
Given physical intervention’s lack of success in transforming neighbourhoods into communities, communication presents a compelling opportunity for study, with potential to identify tools to organize neighbourhoods into effective, self-conscious and integrated communities. To that end, this qualitative study examines how communication constitutes community within the neighbourhood of Strathcona. The neighbourhood is viewed through the lens of constitutive organization theory (Communicative Constitution of Organizations, or CCO), considering place as a function of materialized communication. This research...

Drought disaster planning and adaptation in rural British Columbia

Evan Lloyd
Drought is one of the more devastating climate-driven hazards across the world. Its impacts have long term impacts and can lead to degradation of access to sufficient water, food and other necessities for human life. British Columbia experiences drought on a regular basis and given the increasing impacts of global climate change on the province, it is crucial to understand how small municipalities are prepared for this hazard in the present, as well as how...

Patient confidential : nurses’ social media use in the 21st Century

Johanna Margaret Ward
The rise of social media has corresponded with an explosion in use by healthcare professionals: from online forums and clinical discussions groups to health-care conference ‘tweetups’, social media is being embraced by nurses and naturopaths, dentists and doctors. This hyper-connectedness has a downside, however, as the mixing of public and private lives begins blurring traditional boundaries, leading to violations of patient confidentiality on social media. This thesis examines this problem using Goffman’s theory of the...

Kenzie Ann Burniston Woodbridge
Over 700 million people worldwide are socializing and spending time, sometimes significant amounts, in online multiplayer games, and these social spaces can be important sites of community. Unfortunately, levels of civility, aggression, and mutual helping can vary significantly between game spaces. Given their ubiquity and importance in so many people’s lives, it is critical to understand how a prosocial community can be created and maintained over time in these spaces for those who want them....
