Scrum-based learning environment: fostering self-regulated learning

Academics teaching software development courses are experimenting with teaching methods aiming to improve students’ learning experience and learning outcomes. Since Agile software development is gaining popularity in industry due to positive effects on managing projects, academics implement similar Agile approaches in student-centered learning environments. In this paper, we discuss teaching introductory programming based on Scrum. Our learning environment, supported by the Doubtfire learning management system, fosters perceived autonomy and perceived competence by providing tools and opportunities for self-regulated learners to adjust their learning strategies. Evaluation of the learning environment revealed that students want to be in control of their learning.

Differentiating young offenders with a history of maltreatment: Symptom profiles and causality?

Many young people involved with the youth justice system have a history of contact with child protection services. In addition, there is robust evidence that children with a history of maltreatment are at increased risk of involvement with the criminal justice system. However, there are few studies that examine potential causal mechanisms underlying this association. This paper will present data from 217 young offenders in custody, 50% with a substantiated history with child protection services. The group with a history of maltreatment is compared to the group without a known history of maltreatment to explore the prevalence of symptoms that are potential mediators and moderators of the association between maltreatment and offending. Variables considered include, substance abuse, cognitive functioning, emotional recognition, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, and social isolation. The limitations of these data and directions for future research in this area will be discussed.

A meta-analysis of the efficacy of psychological interventions with violent offenders in custodial, community, and forensic mental health settings

This systematic review and meta-analysis provides a narrative and quantitative synthesis of existing literature examining the efficacy of psychological interventions for adult violent offenders. It takes a broad approach, synthesizing studies across prison populations, community corrections, and forensic mental health settings. The primary review questions are: (a) Are psychological interventions with adult violent offenders in custodial, community, and forensic mental health settings effective in reducing further violent and criminal behavior? (b) What factors modify treatment effects? The paper also explores what individual-level variables might change within treatment, and offers clinical practice recommendations for addressing the needs of this complex population.

Desert drawing: from pigment to (Apple) pencil

The ability to digitally draw is ingrained within contemporary visual design practices. Drawing is a way of recording, representing and communicating that reveals the identity and voice of the creator as they design for a communication purpose. This paper presents a case of how a group of young Indigenous students re-interpret traditional culture through the act of drawing, as they move from analogue to digital technologies. Through a series of design workshops, the drawing styles of participants from remote Central Australia were recorded and analyzed. Workshops were based within Youth Participatory Action Research methodologies and embedded within Indigenous pedagogies. Results show the ancestral essence of country, connectedness and story remain ingrained within these new digital forms. Initial findings reveal three core themes; drawing as research practice, drawing as cultural practice and drawing through technology. The ability to draw in a new, digital way can create numerous benefits to developing the …

Australian communication design history: an Indigenous retelling

The legacy of colonialism in Australia has resulted in the devaluing and exploitation of Indigenous visual culture, design and representation. Through reinterrogating, revealing and documenting previously unacknowledged or omitted Indigenous contributions to communication design history in Australia, this article seeks to reposition examples of Indigenous visual culture as powerful sites of iconographic symbols, graphic forms and political posters. In this article, communication design as ‘visual communication’ is utilized as a framework to re-evaluate Indigenous contributions to Australian design history. This article presents a number of case studies of Indigenous contributions to communication design within a historical timeline, from prehistoric visual communication to twentieth-century examples—mirroring the development of the communication design industry. Parallel to the historical timeline, I note the emergence of recurring themes that are critical to the incorporation of Indigenous contributions into…

Application of Agent-based Modeling in Studying Leadership Effects on Group Task Satisfaction

While servant leadership and transformational leadership have existed for the past few decades, there is little empirical research that compares the influence of these similar styles on job satisfaction, and none that documents their influence on group task satisfaction. This paper demonstrates the application of an agent-based dynamic model simulation in studying the influence of servant and transformational leadership on group task satisfaction, the group-level counterpart to individual satisfaction. Specifically, we have simulated the complex interplays of variables (servant and transformational leadership, work characteristics, internal environment, and external environment) to examine their effects on group task satisfaction. We designed experimental scenarios involving varying the group profiles and task interdependence levels for each of the leadership styles. The group task satisfaction developmental paths arising from the influence of both servant and transformational leadership were compared and we …
