Oxford students hire private tutors

first_imgOxford University students have been hiring private tutors in increasing numbers, with those studying sciences, overseas students and women most likely to seek external assistance.Dr. Vincent McKee, Director of the Independent Institute of College and University Tutors (ICUT) confirmed that his organisation has been contacted by an increasing number of Oxford students over the past two years. Although there have only been twenty-five who explicitly describe themselves as Oxford students, he believes ICUT tutors many Oxonians who are too embarrassed to divulge the name of their institution.    Blue Tutors company has also stated that around fifty Oxford university students have asked for assistance within the last three years. Peter Edwards, spokesperson for the organisation said that there have also been “about 50 students…who were in the Oxford area, but didn’t state their university.” He thought that students are reluctant to disclose this information as “this may reflect badly on that university.” When asked how the University could improve the teaching system, Edwards suggested that colleges could offer extra tutorials between terms and in the run-up to exams, but pointed out that students are often unwilling to ask for help. He added, “Oxford and Cambridge are understandably proud of their standards, but I think that this occasionally spills over into arrogance, and I don’t believe that an Oxbridge tutorial is necessarily of the high standard that everyone assumes it is.“I regularly meet and assess the teaching ability of many people who currently teach for the university, and I am fairly shocked at times by what I see.” He also suggested that “students are too slow to question the standard of teaching that they receive in tutorials.”A spokesperson for the University has defended Oxford’s tutorial system. “Oxford students benefit from much more teaching time and more intensive teaching than almost any other university in the world,” she said pointing out that “The National Student Survey shows that 92 percent of students are satisfied with their courses at Oxford University – higher than the national average.”Dr McKee has also argued that the number of students seeking outside help suggests that the “tutorial system clearly doesn’t identify all of the problems.”He particularly expressed dissatisfaction at the problems experienced by foreign students at British Universities. With 70 to 80 percent of ICUT’s clients foreigners, McKee claimed that “overseas students are abandoned by their institutions”.He added that the students who contact ICUT in the summer months are disproportionately female, an estimated 8 in 10 between July and August. The subjects with the most demand for private tutoring from ICUT include finance, economics, business and management, maths and engineering.  One student, who wished to remain anonymous, admitted that “given the experience of the previous year, in hindsight, I realise I should have either hired a private tutor or requested to change tutors, as I received very little support from my main tutor and found the tuition to be less than satisfactory for several topics.”He also thought that tutors may well be more interested in their own research than supporting their students.last_img read more

Accepted SMC students to attend STEM Preview Weekend

first_imgOn Saturday, accepted first year students will come to Saint Mary’s to attend the third annual science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) weekend.In an email, assistant director of admissions Bekah Stanton described the event as one designed for incoming Belles interested in the sciences.“STEM Preview Weekend is an exclusive event for students admitted to the Class of 2024 who have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and / or math,” she said.Students will participate in a variety of activities led by student hosts and STEM faculty members.“During this overnight event, admitted students stay in the residence halls with current Saint Mary’s students, engage in hands-on activities giving them a taste of the academic disciplines and meet faculty from each department,” Stanton said. “It’s a great opportunity to get questions answered as students are making their final college decisions.”Chemistry professor and chair of the chemistry and physics department Dr. Christopher Dunlap said the science and math departments wanted to improve the recruitment process of STEM students.“The admissions does a great job trying to do recruitment. But in some ways, STEM students might be looking for something a little bit different when they are looking at colleges,” Dunlap said. “What we wanted to do was give them the opportunity to experience what it was like to be in the Science Hall.”Dunlap said the preview weekend is not unique to the College.“This is not necessarily a completely original idea. One of my colleagues, their child had experienced something like this at another institution, but it was just a single department,” Dunlap said. “We thought … we have this great organization, this great cooperation between all the STEM fields. And we thought we could do this.”The STEM departments purposefully planned the weekend to align with Presidents’ Day so students can stay on campus for a longer period of time.“It turns out that the best weekend was right before Presidents’ Day because so many of them are already coming. We said, ‘All right, we’ll do it Saturday afternoon into Sunday, and then those students that want to stay for the Senior Preview Day on Monday, they could just stay all the way through,’” Dunlap said.The activities include a welcome dinner Saturday followed by a STEM social and Trivia Night. On Sunday, the students will be able to participate in the planned STEM activities.“Sunday is sort of the meat and potatoes of the weekend,” Dunlap said. “There are two sessions where [the students] will get the opportunity to be in the laboratory or in doing other activities relatively related to STEM. We have a biology session; we have a chemistry session. Math and physics are combined this year, and we have an engineering session.”Dunlap sees many benefits to students who come to the event wanting to learn more about Saint Mary’s STEM offerings.“The cool thing about it is that they will get to see all the stuff that we do, maybe not at the same level as they’ll get when they get here,” he said. “But they’ll see the building, they’ll get to meet with students [and] they’ll get to talk with faculty in a variety of settings.”Dunlap said many of the students who attend the program will enter into STEM majors at the College. Those who do will have a bond with each other before the school year begins.“We have like an 80% conversion rate, so basically 80 to 90% of the students who come to this matriculate at the College the next year,” he said. “A somewhat unintended effect, but a great effect, is that the students who come to this have already sort of formed a community before they even come to College.”Students enjoy the weekend’s programming every year, Dunlap said. He hopes the STEM departments can continue to motivate students to major in STEM.“Our surveys that we give at the end have very often said that this is one of the reasons that they chose to come to Saint Mary’s,” he said. “I would say it’s a highly successful program in many ways, and we hope to be able to continue in the future.”Tags: saint mary’s, science, STEM Weekendlast_img read more

China Adopts New Anti-Terrorism Legislation

first_img China passed new anti-terrorism legislation in October 2011 that will amend current criminal laws by providing a definition of “acts of terror.” The new law defines terrorists as those who “organize, plot and conduct terrorist acts as well as those who are members of terrorist groups.” On the other hand, it defines terrorist acts as activities “intended to induce public fear or to coerce state organs or international organizations by means of violence, sabotage, threats or other tactics.” The new legislation is expected to help law enforcement officials prosecute terrorists differently from other criminals and to promote international cooperation on terrorism, said Li Shouwei, a criminal law expert for the legislature. It will also freeze the assets of groups and individual terrorists. “China is faced with the real threat of terrorist activities, and the struggle with terrorism is long-term, complicated and acute,” said Chinese vice minister of public security, Yang Huanning.

Weekly Update: Outlining Budget Priorities, Fighting to Protect Health Care, Advocating for Libre’s Law

first_imgWeekly Update: Outlining Budget Priorities, Fighting to Protect Health Care, Advocating for Libre’s Law Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter June 23, 2017 By: The Office of Governor Tom Wolf The Blog,  Weekly Update With the budget deadline approaching, Governor Wolf kicked off this week by outlining his budget priorities. A major priority for Governor Wolf’s budget is the merging of four departments to create the Department of Health and Human Services. A broad coalition of health and human services advocates voiced their support of the proposed merger, which would allow government to work more efficiently, deliver better services and generate long term savings. The governor also received a message from 350 organizations and child care providers sharing their support for Governor Wolf’s proposed budget investment in child care.Governor Wolf continues to speak out against the GOP’s American Health Care Act and the devastating effects the bill would have on Pennsylvanians’ healthcare if passed. On Tuesday, the governor released a statement on the potential impact the AHCA’s Medicaid cuts would have on Pennsylvanians seeking treatment for substance use disorder. Governor Wolf also sent a letter to Senator Pat Toomey asking him to consider the bipartisan concern over AHCA and the impact of drastic cuts to Medicaid. On Thursday, Senate Republicans unveiled their version of the health care bill and Governor Wolf responded by reiterating that the proposed deep cuts to Medicaid would be detrimental to Pennsylvania’s seniors, children, individuals with disabilities, working families, and rural hospitals.Governor Wolf also urged the Pennsylvania Senate to pass HB 1238, also known as Libre’s Law. This legislation is an overhaul of Pennsylvania’s animal abuse laws and passed unanimously in the Senate. Governor Wolf plans to sign the bill into law next week.Governor Wolf’s Week, June 18, 2017 – June 24, 2017Monday, 6/19/17Major Senior, Health Advocates Endorse Governor Wolf’s Unified Department of Health and Human ServicesGovernor Wolf Outlines Budget PrioritiesTuesday, 6/20/17Governor Wolf Urges Final Passage of Animal Protection Overhaul Including Libre’s LawWolf Administration Hosts Local Food Alliance EventMore Than 350 Organizations Support Governor’s Child Care BudgetGO-TIME; Electronic Bidding Lowers Cost of DEP Construction ContractsGovernor Wolf Statement on Opioids and Health Care CutsWednesday, 6/21/17Governor Wolf Asks Senator Toomey to Consider Bipartisan Concern Over Medicaid CutsGovernor Wolf Signs HB 202 Into LawThursday, 6/22/17Governor Wolf Celebrates Bell & Evans’ Organic Hatchery Opening as Part of ‘Jobs that Pay’ TourGovernor Wolf: Senate Plan “Crueler” than House’s for Seniors, Working Families on MedicaidHighlights from The BlogMajor Advocates Agree that the Unification of Health and Human Service Agencies is a Change for the GoodHighlights from Twitter#LibreLaw has passed, and I will sign it.
