TeacherCertificationDegrees.com, a popular education-focused website that provides in-depth information on teacher preparation programs and certification requirements in the US, has released its ranking of the top online master’s degrees in education. To be considered for the list, schools with a hybrid online master’s program designed to lead to first-time certification for new teachers were evaluated for not-for-profit status and accreditation from one of the six regional accreditation agencies in the US recognized by the US Department of Education. The online master’s programs from the schools included are also equivalent to degrees granted to traditional, on-campus students. The rankings were based on factors measuring academic excellence, student experience and support, and graduate success. The ranking uses a unique methodology that considers such factors as the average tuition cost per online credit hour; program accreditation by CAEP (or legacy accreditation from TEAC or NCATE); graduation rate; the average tuition cost per online credit hour; and school rankings according to US News & World Report in the regional, national, and online categories. According to Rob Voce, founder of TeacherCertificationDegrees.com, “A growing number of education schools are hosting online teacher preparation programs at the master’s level to respond to teacher shortages in high-demand subjects and in select regions of the US. Our list differentiates itself from others by honing in on master’s programs designed for initial certification, also known as career-changer programs.” Overall, 34 hybrid and online master’s in education programs met the screening benchmarks and ranked on this year’s list. As well as providing data for the ranking factors of included programs, the 2017 Top-Ranked Online Master’s in Education Programs list includes in-depth information on schools’ admissions statistics and requirements; tuition comparisons for in-state, out-of-state, and online students; and the services and support available to online students.

In flipped classrooms, lectures, which are normally delivered in-class, are assigned as homework in the form of videos, and assignments that were traditionally assigned as homework, are done as learning activities in class. It was hypothesized that the effectiveness of the flipped model hinges on a student’s desire and ability to adopt a self-directed learning style. The purpose of this study was twofold; it aimed at examining the relationship between two variables—students’ perceptions of the flipped model and their self-regulated learning (SRL) behaviors—and the impact that these variables have on achievement in a flipped class. For the study, 76 participants from a flipped introductory biology course were asked about their SRL strategy use and perceptions of the flipped model. SRL strategy use was measured using a modified version of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ; Wolters et al. 2005), while the flipped perceptions survey was newly derived. Student letter grades were collected as a measure of achievement. Through regression analysis, it was found that students’ perceptions of the flipped model positively predict students’ use of several types of SRL strategies. However, the data did not indicate a relationship between student perceptions and achievement, neither directly nor indirectly, through SRL strategy use. Results suggest that flipped classrooms demonstrate their successes in the active learning sessions through constructivist teaching methods. Video lectures hold an important role in flipped classes, however, students may need to practice SRL skills to become more self-directed and effectively learn from them. © 2017 Springer Science+Business Media New York

Chemico-Biological Interactions | Year: 2011
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) catalyzes oxidation of toxic aldehydes to carboxylic acids. Physiologic levels of Mg2+ ions influence ALDH2 activity in part by increasing NADH binding affinity. Traditional fluorescence measurements monitor the blue shift of the NADH fluorescence spectrum to study ALDH2-NADH interactions. By using time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, we have resolved the fluorescent lifetimes (τ) of free NADH (τ = 0.4 ns) and bound NADH (τ = 6.0 ns). We used this technique to investigate the effects of Mg2+ on the ALDH2-NADH binding characteristics and enzyme catalysis. From the resolved free and bound NADH fluorescence signatures, the KD for NADH with ALDH2 ranged from 468 μM to 12 μM for Mg 2+ ion concentrations of 20 to 6000 μM, respectively. The rate constant for dissociation of the enzyme-NADH complex ranged from 0.4 s -1 (6000 μM Mg2+) to 8.3 s-1 (0 μM Mg2+) as determined by addition of excess NAD+ to prevent re-association of NADH and resolving the real-time NADH fluorescence signal. The apparent NADH association/re-association rate constants were approximately 0.04 μM-1 s-1 over the entire Mg2+ ion concentration range and demonstrate that Mg2+ ions slow the release of NADH from the enzyme rather than promoting its re-association. We applied NADH fluorescence lifetime analysis to the study of NADH binding during enzyme catalysis. Our fluorescence lifetime analysis confirmed complex behavior of the enzyme activity as a function of Mg2+ concentration. Importantly, we observed no pre-steady state burst of NADH formation. Furthermore, we observed distinct fluorescence signatures from multiple ALDH2-NADH complexes corresponding to free NADH, enzyme-bound NADH, and, potentially, an abortive NADH-enzyme-propanal complex (τ = 11.2 ns). © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 (ALDH1A1) catalyzes the oxidation of toxic aldehydes to carboxylic acids. Physiologic levels of Mg2+ ions decrease ALDH1 activity in part by increasing NADH binding affinity to the enzyme. By using time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, we have resolved the fluorescent lifetimes (τ) of free NADH in solution (τ = 0.4 ns) and two enzyme-bound NADH states (τ = 2.0 ns and τ = 7.7 ns). We used this technique to investigate the effects of Mg2+ ions on the ALDH1A1-NADH binding characteristics and enzyme catalysis. From the resolved free and bound NADH fluorescence signatures, the KD values for both NADH conformations in ALDH1A1 ranged from about 24 μM to 1 μM for Mg 2+ ion concentrations of 0-6000 μM, respectively. The rate constants for dissociation of the enzyme-NADH complex ranged from 0.03 s -1 (6000 μM Mg2+) to 0.30 s-1 (0 μM Mg2+) as determined by addition of excess NAD+ to prevent re-association of NADH and resolving the real-time NADH fluorescence signal. During the initial reaction of enzyme with NAD+ and butyraldehyde, there was an immediate rise in the NADH fluorescence, due to the formation of bound NADH complexes, with a constant steady-state rate of production of free NADH. As the Mg2+ ion concentration was increased, there was a consistent decrease of the enzyme catalytic turnover from 0.31 s-1 (0 μM Mg2+) to 0.050 s-1 (6000 μM Mg2+) and a distinct shift in steady-state conformational population from one that favors the ALDH1-NADH complex with the shorter fluorescence lifetime (33% excess) in the absence of magnesium ion to one that favors the ALDH1-NADH complex with the longer fluorescence lifetime (13% excess) at 6000 μM Mg2+. This shift in conformational population at higher Mg2+ ion concentrations and to lower enzyme activity may be due to longer residence time of the NADH in the ALDH1 pocket. The results from monitoring enzyme catalysis in the absence of magnesium suggests that the ALDH1-NADH complex with the shorter fluorescence lifetime is the form initially produced, and the complex with the longer fluorescence lifetime is produced through isomerization. © 2013 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases | Year: 2013
To understand local transmission of vector-borne diseases, it is important to identify potential vectors, characterize their host feeding patterns, and determine if vector-borne pathogens are circulating within the region. This study simultaneously investigated these aspects of disease transmission by collecting engorged mosquitoes within two rural study sites in the central Red River Valley of North Dakota. Mosquitoes were identified, midguts were excised, and the blood was expelled from the midguts. DNA was extracted from blood meals and subjected to PCR and direct sequencing to identify the vertebrate origin of the blood. Using different primer sets, PCR was used to screen for two types of vector-borne pathogens, filarioid nematodes and hemosporidian parasites. White-tailed deer were the primary source of blood meals for the eight aedine mosquito species collected. None of the 288 deer-derived blood meals contained filarioid or hemosporidian DNA. In contrast, 18 of 32 Culex tarsalis and three of three Cx. pipiens blood meals contained avian blood, representing eight different species of birds. Of 24 avian-derived blood meals examined, 12 contained Plasmodium DNA, three of which also contained Leucocytozoon DNA (i.e., dual infection). Potential confounding effects resulting from parasite acquisition and development from previous blood meals (e.g., oocysts) were eliminated because host blood had been removed from the midguts prior to DNA extraction. Thus, specific parasite lineages/species could be unequivocally linked to specific vertebrate species. By combining mosquito identification with molecular techniques for identifying blood meal source and pathogens, a relatively small sample of engorged mosquitoes yielded important new information about mosquito feeding patterns and hemosporidia infections in birds. Thorough analyses of wild-caught engorged mosquitoes and other arthropods represent a powerful tool in understanding the local transmission of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases. © 2013 Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

The Kōfu Basin in Yamanashi Prefecture is at the center of table grape and wine production in Japan. This article traces the historical geographies of the growing and fermentation of Delaware grapes in this region. Data were gathered from over 145 interviews with stakeholders across the table grape and wine industries, extensive archival research and participant observation as a grape farmer in the Kōfu Basin for over one and a half years. Emphasis is placed on intertwining that history to overarching developments in local viticulture and winemaking. This includes tracing the arrival of the cultivar from the USA to Japan at the start of the Meiji Restoration in 1868, early fermentation and later rapid diffusion linked to its popularity as the first commercially available seedless cultivar. Delaware reached the pinnacle of its popularity as a grape for the table and wine in the 1960s and 1970s, before changes in consumer demands to higher value table grapes and away from sweet wines led to its fairly rapid decline. Although significantly less Delaware is grown or fermented today, this introduced grape was and surprisingly continues to be highly influential on the developmental trajectories of Japanese grape growing and winemaking. © 2013 Taylor & Francis.
