Theory of Planned Behaviour
The Theory of Planned Behaviour is built out of a number of constructs. The first construct is the attitude towards the act or behaviour. That is, an individual’s belief of whether a certain behaviour or act makes a positive or negative contribution to that person’s life. A second construct is called subjective norm. This construct focuses on everything around the individual. In other words his or her social network, cultural norms, group beliefs and so on. A third construct is called perceived behavioural control. This construct refers to a person’s belief of how easy or hard it is to display a certain behaviour or act in a certain way. We can use the theory to predict that if a person has a positive attitude towards an act or behaviour, and they are surrounded by favourable social norms and they have a high level of perceived behavioural control, these are the best predictors for forming a behavioural intention and in turn, they will lead to the person actually displaying the behaviour or act.

Top 10 Proven Classroom Management Tips for Teachers
Tweet this Video: http://clicktotweet.com/UfFee http://www.ampli.com/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AmplivoxPortableSoundSystemsandLecterns Classroom management Definition: "A term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students." Listed below are several techniques, ideas, resources, and tips for teachers to hone the right skills to conquer their classroom: 1. Start the year tough. Many teachers make the mistake of starting the school year with a poor discipline plan or without any classroom management plan at all. It is so much easier to start tough and then lighten up, then to start light and discipline more. At the beginning of the year, students quickly assess the situation and realize what they will be allowed to get away with. Starting the year tough will give you control and flexibility. 2. Be fair to all students. 3. Be prepared for disruptions---and don't let them phase you. Students often amplify their teacher's reaction to disruptions—be ready for them and be ready to calmly and quickly pick up where you left off. Having a joke or interesting comment ready to bring attention back to you will allow you to transition back to the material. 4. Instill high expectations 5. Incentivize good behavior. Motivating students though rewards like no homework, watching a video, ice cream, or free-activity time can help students by giving them a goal. This can also help students hold each other accountable to class goals and stigmatize negative behavior even more. 6. Overplan. 7. Have a clearly expressed disciplinary plan...with consequences! Make sure students know the disciplinary ladder well. Any hint of ambiguity can leave a loophole for excuses (and students are great at making excuses!). Warn students when they are close to breaking a rule so there will be no ambiguity when that line is crossed. If you constantly raise your voice to get the attention of the class, consider investing in a classroom amplification system which can save your voice by projecting it. The iPod Portable PA system is a great system for classrooms because it features an iPod dock that simultaneously plays and charges your iPod and also has outputs for a projector. 8. Focus on relationships. A teacher than can connect positively with their students will make students behave and easier to manage because students will regard the teacher much like a friend. Using positive reinforcement to build a positive reputation for the child gives the student confidence that their teacher believes in them and will make it harder to disappoint the teacher with bad behavior or work ethic. 9. Be careful about confrontation 10. Be patient and keep practicing. Don't worry if things don't go well right away...controlling your classroom is learn-able but will always be a challenge with some students. Whether you are teach a kindergarten class, at an elementary school, middle school, or high school, it is best to "Expect the Unexpected" and be ready for adversity!

The secret to self control | Jonathan Bricker | TEDxRainier
Jonathan Bricker's work has uncoved a scientifically sound approach to behavior change that is twice as effective as most currently practiced methods. His new methods are driving new norms and new apps for how people quit smoking and decrease obesity, saving many people from an early death. Jonathan Bricker is an internationally recognized scientific leader in a bold approach called acceptance and commitment therapy. A Stanford researcher called his use of the approach “a breakthrough in behavioral research [that] has major public health implications for the major causes of preventable death.” Bricker and his team, having received $10 million in total federal research grants to study this topic, are rigorously testing this intervention on multiple platforms, including smartphone apps, websites, and telephone coaching. His SmartQuit app for quitting smoking was recently launched and is now in distribution worldwide. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

This section here represents the first 14 minutes of an initial therapy session, but in order to try and outline the vicious cycle, it moves faster than an average session might. The video features an actor playing the character of Lucy, but the dialogue is not scripted, and as such represents a natural therapeutic exchange. I myself am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, but would definitely not suggest that this is a perfect example of therapy!

How to Advocate for Your Child | Child Psychology
Watch more How to Understand Child Psychology videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507763-How-to-Advocate-for-Your-Child-Child-Psychology No one is a better advocate for their child's needs than a parent so it's important to follow a few simple steps. First you want to define the problem and write it down. Any concerns you have be it learning issues or behavioural challenges, it is important to write down the key concerns you have. The next thing to do is develop some action plans what you would like to see to happen to help with the situation be it learning or behavioural. After you have developed an action plan it is important to meet your child's teachers or other members of the school faculty. Within this meeting, approach it with a positive attitude because this is the collaboration of how we are going to solve problems to benefit your child. Within the meeting always keeps your documentation and don't leave the meeting without writing down the next steps. Perhaps you even need a date or a timeline of when some of the resolutions will occur. After the meeting it is also important to follow up with your documentation; sometimes follow up phone calls are needed but you have to remember to follow up the chain of command. Don't skip steps; you don't want to create a contentious relationship between you and the administration at your child's school. Remember this is the collaborative effort. And these are just a few of the tips of how to advocate for your child.

Leadership Fellow Teal McAteer on Teaching Transformative Leadership Course
FEATURE: Dr.Teal McAteer Leadership in Teaching and Learning Fellowship & Research MacPherson Institute, McMaster University Part of MacPherson Institute’s core business is to engage faculty in scholarly exploration, innovation, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of teaching and learning practices. One concrete way to achieve this goal is through MacPherson Institute’s new 2-year Fellowship program – Leadership in Teaching & Learning. The Fellowship program is grounded in the evidence-based philosophy that faculty involvement is key to leading change that enhances students’ learning experiences in higher education. Leading change in teaching and learning, a contextual and complex process at its core is fostered through collegial efforts and implementation of new ideas and innovations within courses and programs. Dr. Teal McAteer is an Associate Professor in Human Resources and Management at the DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada. Dr. McAteer specializes in the areas of Leadership Development; Change and Stress Management; and Strategic Career Development. Over the past five years, Dr. McAteer has integrated transformative learning experiences into three of her courses, two at the graduate level and one at the undergraduate level. Dr. McAteer maintains her own leadership coaching practice offering change, stress, and career management services to organizations and on an individual basis. At the core of her coaching is Transformative Learning. Her primary emphasis continues to be in helping people articulate their goals for change in their personal and professional lives, establish specific action steps with time lines, anticipate barriers to change, initiate measures to ensure accountability for actions, and embed progress measures to reach change success. To find out more about Dr. McAteer’s coaching sessions, you can contact her at mcateer@mcmaster.ca. 'Scaffolding, Learning Portfolios and Transformative Leadership: What do they all have in a common?' The project has three research components: 1) investigating a proposed “scaffolding plan” (with experiential learning through continuous Learning Portfolio presentation, additions and submissions over time at its foundation) developed to enhance the student experience by allowing them to develop a kitbag of skills over their four year experience at McMaster; 2) uncovering themes within student learning portfolios of 200 student LPs collected from a mandatory first year Organizational Behavior course within McMaster’s Undergraduate Commerce program describing their development and reflection on core competency building in the areas of stress management, time management and change management; and 3) studying the impact of an innovative instruction technique (a Transformative Learning Experience or TLE) used in the Masters in Business Administration Leadership course. It is important to note here that Leadership training while often focuses on learning how to lead others, this course is first and foremost, about learning how to lead self. As well, the definition of leader in this course is not that of a formal leadership role, rather the assumption that we are all leaders in all parts of our lives. Thus, the importance of starting with knowing and improving, “the leader within”. https://mi.mcmaster.ca/ http://www.mcmaster.ca/ http://www.degroote.mcmaster.ca/profiles/teal-mcateer/

A Game-based Experiential Approach to Teaching Professional Ethics
Unlike the traditional approach to ethics education that involves reading, writing, and discussing moral reasoning in the abstract, our new pedagogy uses experiential games to position students in situations that require first-hand ethical decision-making. The games allow students to personally explore what factors prevent them from living up to their moral ideals, and what strategies are effective for coordinating groups to address collective-action problems, where personal incentives are at odds with the group’s best interests. Each game consists of complete and independent modules that can be combined to form undergraduate & graduate level courses in sustainability ethics. Furthermore, both the modules and the course are deliverable in a synchronous (or semi-synchronous) fashion at multiple Universities, wherein students at multiple campuses interact on-line through game play. The games can also be played entirely in-class, in blended learning environments (online and in-class), or completely online. This novel multi-campus form of instruction allows students to be mentored by multiple instructors from different disciplines. Also, when played internationally, students are exposed to the inequality of globalization since they engage directly with peers from distant places and experience first-hand whether they are willing to treat them with as much respect as their own classmates, or whether distance discourages moral behavior. To date, three full courses have been delivered at Rochester Institute of Technology and Arizona State University, while modules have been adopted in engineering, environmental science, and business courses at Mesa Community College, Michigan State University, University of Colorado -Boulder, Purdue University, Northeastern University, University of Arizona, University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez, Dartmouth College, Mountains of the Moon University (Uganda), the Management Development Institute (India) and Desert Vista High School (Phoenix AZ). The project has trained nearly two dozen faculty and a dozen graduate and undergrad students to deliver the modules in two workshops. Moreover, the grant allowed for both student training and professional development, as it funded a four-year PhD dissertation in Sustainability as well as an undergraduate research experience. Dissemination of results is taking place both through traditional modes (several academic conferences, multiple public lectures, workshops, & journal articles) and through digital media, including on-line articles in Slate, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and other web-based media. Experience in several instructional contexts reinforce the hypothesis that the game-based pedagogies move students from passive to active, apathetic to emotionally invested, predictable to surprising, and from narratively closed to experimentally open. We’ve also been surprised at the ability of some groups to behave cooperatively, despite the inherent incentives to act otherwise. We attribute this success to the moral suasion of ethical leaders in our classrooms, and we argue that the importance of our findings extends beyond the classroom by offering potential models of cooperation for addressing real-world resource management challenges. Furthermore, an invention disclosure has been created for the Tragedy of the Commons Game (a.k.a the Pisces Game, which is our most successful and widely used game) that will be the first product of a spin-out company called 'Experiential Sustainability Ethics Training Games, LLC' (XSET Games). The Pisces Game simulates dilemmas where decisions must be made about depletion or preservation of resources held in the public commons, such as the problem of overfishing occurring in Lake Victoria -- the second largest freshwater lake in the world. In the game, players fish from a shared lake and make decisions related to conservation, consumption, capital investment, trading, or other transfers. XSET Games is unveiling a smartphone interface of the game on November 18th, 2013 at the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Annual Conference in Nashville. Participants are expected to obtain a greater understanding of the human dimensions of sustainability problems, such as diverse values and worldviews, social media skills related to leadership, teamwork, negotiation, and empathy, and (if the classroom experience is any indication) may discover relevant insights into their own or others’ moral character.

Can Big Data Analysis Swing a Political Election? [IT: The Big Idea Edition]
As nearly everything in our lives transitions from the real to the digital world, the more those things can -- and are -- being tracked. Every like, tweet, search and swipe ours is a piece of that digital data mosaic that makes up our online life. But with that massive amount of information, companies, advertisers and now political campaigns are gaining a big advantage. Andrew Brust is the senior director of market, strategy, and intelligence at Datameer, a big data analytics platform that helps clients analyze and interpret large volumes of information. He said the platform can look for patterns and correlations among what people like, do, and buy. For years, broad information like age, gender, race, and income would form the basis of how individuals were profiled -- demographic data. But now thanks to the wealth of online information companies and political campaigns are able to use a new method: psychographics All that public online data -- the things you search for, the singers you like on Facebook, the church you attend -- contributes to where we stand on what's known as the OCEAN framework. OCEAN stands for openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. And based on those dimensions, the big five, companies can form a remarkably accurate profile of what drives an individual's behavior. "Clearly, demographics and geographics and economics will influence your world view. But equally important or more important are psychographics. That is an understanding of your personality. Cause it's personality that drives behavior. And behavior that obviously influences how you vote," Alexander Nix, the CEO of a company called Cambridge Analytica, said during a lecture at the 2016 Concordia Summit. Cambridge Analytica is a London-based data analytics firm used by Donald Trump in the 2016 election. The firm is co-owned by GOP mega-donor Rebecca Mercer. Steve Bannon, the president's chief strategist, sits on the company's board. "By having hundreds and hundreds of thousands of Americans undertake this survey, we were able to form a model to predict the personality of every single adult in the United States of America," Nix said in the lecture. He said Cambridge possesses 4,000 to 5,000 data points on every single adult in America. Cambridge said that from that trove of data it was able to identify the most persuadable voters and send them targeted messages at key times in order to move them to action. But this type of targeting, while effective, can raise red flags if left unchecked. "There are ways that this can be very creepy and very personalized," said Justin Cappos, a professor at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. "If a campaign is going and gathering specific people and let's say it finds out that you have had a child who was in the military and killed in action and they custom target an ad to you to try to really tug at your heart strings and use that as a mechanism to say 'Oh this other candidate is a bad person' or 'our candidate wouldn't allow this to happen or something' I think most people would find that very creepy." While Cambridge's website touts having provided the Trump campaign the "expertise and intelligence that helped win the White House," a recent investigation by BuzzFeed News cited interviews with 13 former employees said Cambridge's claim of propelling Trump to victory is "snake oil." Cambridge Analytica declined to be interviewed on camera. But in a statement on the BuzzFeed News article, it told Fox 5: "Cambridge Analytica has always stated on the record that it did not have the opportunity to dive deeply into their psychographic offering because there was not enough time." But with more personal information constantly entering the public domain and companies that are better and smarter about tracking it, in the next election the candidates might know a lot more about you than you do about them. --JOE TOOHEY

Introduction by: Paul Reville, Keppel Professor of Practice of Educational Policy and Administration, and director, Education Redesign Lab, HGSE Moderator: Jorrit de Jong, Lecturer in Public Policy and Management, and faculty director, Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, Harvard Kennedy School Mayors: • Joseph Curtatone, Somerville, MA • Jorge Elorza, Providence, RI • Greg Fischer, Mayor, Louisville, KY • Libby Schaaf, Oakland, CA In an era of widespread disagreement on education reform, increased confidence in local control of education, and the absence of a dominant theory on where reform goes from here, visionary mayors are emerging as leaders of thought and action in defining a new role for municipalities to play in developing and educating young people, with particular attention to children living in poverty. Several mayors who are participating in both HGSE's By All Means Initiative and HKS’s Bloomberg City Leadership Initiative are mapping out cradle-to-career pathways to success for children in their communities. They will discuss their ambitious plans with the head of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, Jorrit de Jong. This forum is held in conjunction with the By All Means initiative.

Edward "Ted" Miguel "Understanding Ethnic Cooperation: Evidence From Experiments in East Africa"
11/20/13 at Institute for the Study of Societal Issues Lecture by Edward Miguel, Oxfam Professor in Environmental and Resource Economics and Faculty Director of the Center for Effective Global Action, UC Berkeley We employ lab experiment data from Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to document the extent of ethnic divisions, and to test whether - and how - ethnic divisions can be rendered less salient. The study employs both standard and novel lab measures, develops new ways to prime both ethnic and national identity, uses implicit association tests to clarify the mechanisms underlying behavior, and employs a pre-analysis plan that specifies hypotheses to generate more credible estimates.

Susan Dieterlen: "Disruption and Design Thinking"
Architecture Spring 2016 Lecture Series - March 8, 2016 at Slocum Hall. Susan Dieterlen holds joint appointments as a Research Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture at Syracuse University, and as a Faculty Research Fellow at the Syracuse Center of Excellence. Her research investigates human behavior and environments, with a focus on urban neighborhoods during economic transformations. She is the author of several publications, including those within Environment and Behavior and the Journal of Urbanism, as well as a book-length scholarly monograph. She also blogs at City Wild on www.susandieterlen.com. Her work identifies opportunities during economic change to create more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous places for people. Such transformations can provide increased equality and understanding across demographic divisions, as communities pull together toward common goals. The publication of her book, Immigrant Pastoral: Midwestern Landscapes and Mexican-American Neighborhoods (Routledge, 2015) caps a decade of work focusing on immigration’s transformation of small postindustrial cities and rural meatpacking towns. A related line of work explores social and behavioral impacts of increasing urban nature and neglect. This includes studies of crime and social capital in areas of tree canopy and understory vegetation, especially unmaintained spontaneous vegetation. This work incorporates an approach of trade-offs between costs and benefits, including the increasing need to mitigate climate change impacts in cash-strapped municipalities. Dr. Dieterlen is currently conducting studies in this area and lecturing on it nationally. Additional work includes projects with the Syracuse Center of Excellence involving the transformation to a post-carbon age through the incorporation of clean and distributed energy generation and use. Current studies include the use of community microgrids to promote economic revitalization of disadvantaged neighborhoods in postindustrial cities. Her work also engages the dismantling/vacating of fossil-fuel infrastructure and its profound impacts on the physical environment and public acceptance. Prior to joining Syracuse University, Dr. Dieterlen taught as a faculty member in the SUNY-ESF Landscape Architecture program. She has taught a wide range of design studios as well as courses on environment and behavior research, applied research methods, and postindustrial cities. Her teaching emphasizes critical thinking and connecting interdisciplinary research to built design work, and involves a unique combination of scholarly rigor and real-world business expertise. In addition to an undergraduate professional degree in landscape architecture from Purdue University, Dr. Dieterlen holds a Master of Landscape Architecture and a doctorate in Landscape Architecture from the University of Michigan. She is also a registered landscape architect with several years of full-time professional practice experience, including the founding of Prologue, a small design practice.
Annenberg Research Seminar - Nicole Ardoin
Nov. 9, 2009: Annenberg Research Seminar: Nicole Ardoin Join students and faculty for a presentation by Nicole Ardoin, assistant professor at the school of education and center fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. Her topic: "Sense of place and environmental behavior: Communicating and educating for environmental change." From Dr. Ardoin: "As we face increasingly pressing large-scale environmental issues, questions abound around how best to move people to action. Many researchers and conservation practitioners believe that deep, rooted place connections motivate place-protective behaviors, yet little empirical research has critically examined this assumption. In this talk, I will share results from recent research into the relationship between: sense of place; the scale at which place connections occur; and how place relationships impact environmental behavior. Based on what the findings suggest about how place connections may--or may not--impact environmental behavior at a range of geographic scales, I will discuss the implications for educating and communicating for social and behavioral change."
