Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: SCI031000

The ongoing Progress in Education series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. Schools are institutions that sail in the tempest of educational issues, reforms, strategies, data and tools, as well as reflect changes in society. Embedded in all of these are technology, diversity, and innovation – their inevitability has been demonstrated in our schools and communities. The first chapter of this volume discusses the phenomenon of joy and peace in teaching. Chapter Two provides the reader with an understanding of the challenges that medical education in the workplace can present, along with the benefits of education within this setting to benefit the learning journey of a doctor. Chapter Three presents the main aspects of the analysis of the online training courses offered by the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada (Reno, UNR) after carrying out a longitudinal study based on the students’ evaluation. Chapter Four describes a collaborative STEM education project aimed at enhancing primary school teachers‟ and students‟ experiences of STEM. Chapter Five examines differences in postsecondary enrollment status of Texas high school graduates from schools based on their enrollment of students who were at-risk. Chapter Six studies the extent to which differences were present in mathematics skills of Grade 6, 7, and 8 Black boys in Texas as a function of their economic status. Chapter Seven addresses the extent to which differences were present in graduation and persistence rates as a function of developmental education enrollment in Texas community colleges.
