Phoebe Constantinou, associate professor in the Department of Health Promotion and Physical Education, published an article entitled “The Impact of International Student Teaching Experience on Teacher Identity and Cultural Competency” in the peer-reviewed journal, The International Journal of Diversity in Education, Volume 15, Issue 3, pp.17-32.

This study examined the impact an international teaching experience had on pre-service teachers’ identity and cultural competency. A convenient sample of 17 (N=17) college students was used for this study. Data were gathered through participants’ pre- and post-self-reflective papers and two weekly reflective journals completed while abroad.

Phoebe Constantinou, associate professor in the Department of Health Promotion and Physical Education, recently presented a paper titled “Instructional Assessment Methods” at the 22nd International Conference on Learning in Madrid, Spain.

As teachers adjust their instruction to diverse students’ learning styles, assessment methods must also be aligned to similar principles if the students’ learning is to be truly measured. Assessment is an integral part of the instructional process. It can provide valuable information to both students and the teachers. Assessments can be a vector to quality corrective instruction, a second chance for struggling students to demonstrate success, and a means to provide a more complex challenge for advance students. Assessments enable teachers to determine what students need along their journey to learning and achievement in school. 

Constantinou's paper discusses the step-by-step process of applying various formative assessment tools for individual, partner, small group and whole class assessments.

The following is being shared on behalf of Dr. Timothy Carey, Associate Vice President, Facilities. 

Congratulations and a Fond Farewell to Lisa Belokur! 

It is with a great sense of pride that I share with the campus community that Lisa Belokur, Director of Facilities Services, has been provided with and has accepted a significantly elevated employment opportunity at Cornell University.    This move, although somewhat difficult for those of us at IC who have relied upon Lisa’s stellar contributions during her 12 year tenure at the College, represents a wonderful opportunity for her career and her family.

The Center for Counseling, Health, and Wellness, to include the Hammond Health Center, will be closed after 12:00 noon on Thursday, August 20th, 2015 so that our staff can attend a departmental retreat and training. No services will be available during this time.  We will reopen at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 21st.

As always, if you have a medical emergency, call 911.

The first day of fall semester classes at Ithaca College is Wednesday, August 26. However, students and faculty members should follow their Monday class schedules for that first day of classes only. All other instructional days follow the ordinary schedules.

The College must follow the Monday class schedules on that first day to compensate for observing the Labor Day holiday later in the semester and meet the minimum requirements for class hours established by the New York State Education Department.

Best wishes for a smooth and productive semester.

Brian D. Scholten
