Training of Writing Tutors: Lacks and Needs
Saydam, Deniz (null; 2017-11-08)
Writing centers have been a part of the higher education landscape since the 1930s (Murphy & Law, 1995). They are for all writers since even the best writers need preliminary readers, and careful responses and questions which such readers provide. Basically, tutors are those readers. Writing center literature suggests that tutors need to be equipped with particular features to achieve the goals of writing centers. With the aim of training effective tutors and to better cater for the needs of writers, many w...
Training Methodology for a Multiplication Free Implementable Operator Based Neural Networks
Yıldız, Ozan; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Technological advances opened new possibilities for computing environments including smart phones, smart appliances, and drones. Engineers try to make these devices smart, self-sustaining through usage of machine learning techniques. However, most of the mobile environments have limited resources like memory, computing power and battery, and consequently traditional machine learning algorithms which require relatively high resources might not be suitable for them. Therefore, efficient versions of traditiona...
Training the next generation of designers for a sustainable future: action research on the circular design internship
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta; De Eyto, Adam (null; 2018-06-25)

The research focuses on training novice designers for challenges and real-life complexities in addressing issues of sustainability through design. The internship aims to create the environment for interns to self-learn and experience tools and techniques for Circular D...
Training mathematics teachers for realistic math problems: a case of modeling-based teacher education courses
Sevinç, Şerife (2018-04-01)
One important goal of teacher education has been to improve pre-service teachers' understanding of the connection between real-life events and mathematics. Toward this goal, we designed two mathematics teacher education courses based on the Models-and-Modeling Perspective. This study presents a three-tier modeling investigation of (a) pre-service teachers' views about characteristics of realistic mathematics problems, and (b) teacher-level skills required to write such problems. A team of researchers analyz...
Training early childhood teachers for sustainability: towards a "learning experience of a different kind'
Feriver, Sebnem; Teksoz, Gaye (Tuncer); Olgan, Refika; Reid, Alan (Informa UK Limited, 2016-07-01)
In this study, we discuss findings from a small-scale project evaluating an in-service teacher training programme focused on perspective transformation' in early childhood education and education for sustainability (EfS). A bespoke professional development programme was developed for Turkish early childhood teachers, based on a variety of Mezirowian-inspired adult education activities. Data were gathered using a mixed method research design, from 24 early childhood educators, through learning diaries, a Lea...
