Mindfulness at SchoolsPresentation Year: 2020
- Eva YorkSocial WorkGraduate Student
For my Master’s Project I am currently implementing Mindfulness and Social Emotional Learning support (SEL) in a K - 8th grade school. By providing these services we can assist in bringing positive outcomes in early intervention programs for all students, but particularly impacted students who have high Adverse Childhood Experiences ( ACEs) score. Introducing a strength-based perspective and an understanding of wellness and sustainability to students, teachers and school staff can improve long term outcomes such as quality of life, employment and health.

Tailoring the Learning Environment: Generation ZPresentation Year: 2020
- Kai CooperInternational StudiesUndergraduate Student
By addressing the needs of Generation Z students in the classroom, we are able to tailor the learning environment to the generation. The ineffectiveness of the traditional teaching pedagogy shows the need to adapt the classroom. As a classroom assistant in a service-learning class, I was able to see how communication in the classroom plus reflection creates community, and awareness of community. By proposing a dynamic learning environment such as one with service-learning, one is able to shape the way the classroom interacts and engages with its students to address their changing learning style. We need to ask the question of how can we engage students in an adapting and changing world.

This study outlines the results of a survey undertaken at Humboldt State University to examine factors that are associated with an undergraduate accounting student obtaining a job offer and passing the CPA exam. Undertaking relevant part-time work, academic performance and social (extra-curricular) activities are significant factors leading to job offers prior to graduation, as well as success on the CPA exam. Participation in part-time professional work was not found to negatively affect students’ academic performance.
