Exploring Learning Organizations through the High Reliability Organization Framework

Jared D. Padgett, University of Phoenix and Michael Armanious, MA Technology, US.

The modern pace of business has changed the way organizations need to function to maintain viability in the rapidly changing marketplace. Healthcare organizations face similar changes in the way they operate, partly because of the recent national healthcare changes and the emergence of electronic health and medical records. Healthcare organizations are also challenged to avoid preventable medical errors, which cost $38 billion annually and negatively affect patients and staff. Organizational knowledge is critical to identify and implement the rapid changes required in these systems. Traditional corporate training is quickly made obsolete, raising training costs to $400 billion. The purpose of this qualitative exploratory multi-case study was to explore characteristics of learning organizat

Education for Equity: Implications for Teacher Education Programs in the United States

Mary M. Chittooran, Saint Louis University, US

The increase in diverse populations across the United States has resulted in concomitant pressure on teacher education programs in higher education institutions. The work of preparing teachers is particularly challenging when there is a cultural mismatch between teachers and their PreK-12 students across race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, and language. Educating for equity in teacher education programs involves having students a) study variations in individual and group access to educational resources and opportunities, b) investigate power, privilege, marginalization, and oppression in school and community settings, c) examine their own privileged status and its attendant benefits, d) analyze their potential role as change agents for their PreK-12 students, and e) develop stra

The Different Facets of Ukrainian for Immigrant Parents and their Children in Canada

Nataliya Kharchenko, University of Manitoba, Canada

The global interplay of political, economic, personal, and societal factors is causing growing numbers of people to search for better and safer places to raise their families, with the result that established values and linguistic beliefs in host countries will undergo inevitable revision and reconsideration. It has been well established that the priority for newcomers should be linguistic repertoire expansion by acquiring an additional language rather than the replacement of their native languages by the language of the mainstream society. With this in mind, the objectives of this project were to document and analyze participants’ experiences regarding home language use and parenting in Canada and to discover successful strategies for the encouragement and maintenance of Ukrainian.

A Qualitative Enquiry Concerning Transcendental and Religious Identities - Bringing Them Together and Setting Them Apart

The purpose of this study was to assess whether there are any differences between transcendental and religious identities. This research focused on identity formation and identity maturity across three religions: Jainism, Krishna Consciousness, and Sikhism. The aim was to distinguish the specific relationship between identity and identity maturity, with the hypothesized expectation that both transcendental and religious identities are reached through a similar adoption and informational process.
Three in-depth interviews were conducted with self-identified prominent members of major religious bodies of the three religious strands. They delved into the specific facets of identity formation: dress, values and beliefs, association, self-awareness, and self-management. The findings elucidate

The Performance Aesthetics of Igbo Satire

Christine N. Ohale, Chicago State University, US

The objective of this paper is to describe and analyze Igbo satirical performances in order to bring out their aesthetics and meaning. Satire is a prevalent activity, and almost every aspect of human endeavor can lend itself to satirical expression. In Igbo society, occasions such as traditional festivals, moonlit-night plays, and other social events typically invite satires and their performances. In these performances, artistic talents are put into visible and audible form through songs and dramatic sketches, which are performed to entertain and ridicule and expose deviant behavior in the community. Since a clearly defined code of morals exists, infringements of the laws may lead to severe penalties for victims. Satire is a common weapon with which to punish all categories of offenders.
