A team building activity in the workplace is often met with an eye roll, but a team of organizational researchers is taking a hard look at such exercises in order to determine their best use—or if a given intervention is needed at all. The researchers’ published article in the Academy of Management Annals defines what […]
Dave Barrett, alumni distinguished professor in Clemson’s department of education and human development, was a featured speaker at the 2018 Workshop for Contributors to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive. The workshop was held in Greenville, South Carolina on May 31 and June 1, 2018. The workshop focused on risk assessment for juveniles, information system […]
New research from forensic anthropologists suggests that the structure of the human skull can help identify a person who has died attempting to cross into the United States from Mexico. After examining what little is often left of these individuals, researchers say medical examiners can use a skull’s symmetry to define their likely origin and increase the odds that they will be identified.
John Gautsch boarded a plane to Thailand, but it was “Big Boy” who returned to Clemson. Gautsch, a senior recreational therapy major at Clemson, is a large man even in his home country, but he suspects the nickname may have also referred to his personality. He hopes, anyway. Physical strength and a warm personality are […]
The athlete within Diamond Brown refuses to take a step back, but that always-competitive drive has helped her find her perfect career as a student-athlete adviser. Graduating Clemson with a Master of Education in Counselor Education, Brown now has a set of tools to student athletes get to where they need to be.
Word is that the University of South Carolina is getting a “Carolina Command Center” up and running, which sounds a great deal like something in our own Daniel Hall. They’ve even made plans and crafted a video message to potential supporters to surpass Clemson’s own social media listening center. Joseph Mazer, associate professor of communication and […]
A study compiled by a group of researchers has found the recent killing of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida was not an isolated occurrence, but part of a deadly epidemic. The study, published in Springer’s Journal of Child and Family Studies, reviews the history of mass school shootings in the U.S., […]
Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department has appointed Lori Dickes as its associate chair. Dickes, who has served as assistant professor in the department and program director of Clemson’s master of public administration program, will work to further establish the growing department’s strategic direction and aid it in achieving its research ambitions. Dickes will […]
New research exploring media coverage of a Russian doping scandal reveals how extensive reporting might have motivated cyberattacks aimed at affecting the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The research, published in Communication and Sport, examines journalistic and political fallout resulting from coverage of a scandal that tarnished Russia’s reputation in international sport.
A team of Clemson researchers is using a $398,263 award from the National Science Foundation’s Broadening Participation in Engineering program to examine factors that both encourage and discourage Black students from pursuing education in engineering fields. Researchers will also examine how different academic pathways in engineering vary by gender and institution type for Black students.
As the need for more creative, technological solutions to health issues increases, companies meet constant design challenges when they offer up telemedicine technology or medication management apps designed with older adults in mind. Faculty from Clemson University and North Carolina State University examine this design challenge from a psychological perspective with a new book, “Aging, Technology and Health.”
Improved brain injury diagnoses and approaches to knee surgery are among the sports research projects that have received a boost thanks to seed grants from the Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute at Clemson University.
Clemson University Ph.D. student Abby Baker has developed workshops to deliver concepts related to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) to elementary school students. The workshops are part of a Clemson Creative Inquiry project that sees Clemson students translate college-level STEAM projects for a fifth-grade audience. The lessons are a valuable extension in the education of Clemson students and the fifth graders they teach, but Baker is thinking even bigger. She is testing a model that she hopes will be copied across a state with a growing need for students interested in science and math.
Beth Leavitt didn’t travel the traditional road to education. In fact, it took 14 years after graduating from Clemson in 1984 before she stepped into her classroom at Wade Hampton High School, where she teaches AP physics. She worked as a chemist for an environmental company before she turned to education, but Leavitt doesn’t see […]
Clemson University, Coastal Carolina University, Winthrop University and The Citadel have joined forces to provide a seamless transition from each institution’s Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree programs to Clemson’s Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) program in Education Systems Improvement Studies.
