New volume of Micronesian Educator focuses on student success and engagement in higher education
The School of Education this month released the 28th volume of its annual research journal, Micronesian Educator, featuring five research papers, four critical essays, and three book reviews that address student success, academic performance, and student engagement in higher education.
The journal serves as a forum to share empirical findings, literature reviews, theoretical perspectives, and practical applications.
This volume’s works are authored by University of Guam faculty members. It also includes one piece by a UOG student as well.
“We hope to publish more students in the future,” said Professor Christopher Schreiner, editor of the publication along with Professor Yukiko Inoue-Smith.
The research papers cover topics of developing culturally specific sexual misconduct policies for campuses in Micronesia, implementing math research experiences for undergraduate UOG students, and redefining success among university students in the knowledge age.
The critical essays explore philosophies on human responsibility with the environment, bioregionalism, and the disinterest in originality among creative writers today.
“By chance, we published three different writing pertaining to ecology and sustainability issues,” Schreiner said, which is a highlight for this volume and is a topic on which the journal could potentially publish a special issue in the future.
Micronesian Educator is one of several journals produced by the University of Guam. It is available digitally on the School of Education webpage and below.
