Undergraduate Public Health Education: Alternative Choices within the BSPH Degree
Karen Perrin,Laura Merrell
Frontiers in Public Health , 2014, DOI: 10.3389/fpubh.2014.00127
Abstract: The University of South Florida’s College of Public Health has been in existence since 1984. After many years of only offering a public health minor, a Bachelors of Science in Public Health was offered. This article explores the creation, development, scheduling, and lessons learned of this degree.
Using Blended Learning to Ensure Consistency and Quality in Multiple Course Sections
Karen Perrin,Laura Rusnak,Shenghua Zha,David Lewis
Journal of the Research Center for Educational Technology , 2009,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide stakeholders (academic administrators, instructional designers, instructors, and students) with one university’s experience with managing multiple sections of the same course, by using a series of instructional techniques that ensures consistent, high-quality, blended courses. Many universities are tasked with teaching multiple sections of foundational courses to large numbers of students. How do administrators and instructors ensure that each stakeholder’s needs and requirements are being met satisfactorily? This paper addresses the issues that arise when trying to satisfying the needs of all stakeholders, the role that blended learning plays, and the strengths and challenges of utilizing blended learning and future considerations. It develops a model that uses five strategies for ensuring course consistency, including personnel structure, communication, course design and consistency, assessment and evaluation, and technological and professional development support. Finally, this paper includes a just-in-time tool (Appendix A) that can be used by administrators to address the challenges of incorporating blended learning.
Atomic four-wave mixing via condensate collisions
Aurélien Perrin,Craig M. Savage,D. Boiron,V. Krachmalnicoff,C. I. Westbrook,Karen Kheruntsyan
Physics , 2007, DOI: 10.1088/1367-2630/10/4/045021
Abstract: We perform a theoretical analysis of atomic four-wave mixing via a collision of two Bose-Einstein condensates of metastable helium atoms, and compare the results to a recent experiment. We calculate atom-atom pair correlations within the scattering halo produced spontaneously during the collision. We also examine the expected relative number squeezing of atoms on the sphere. The analysis includes first-principles quantum simulations using the positive P-representation method. We develop a unified description of the experimental and simulation results.
Factors contributing to intervention fidelity in a multi-site chronic disease self-management program
Karen M Perrin, Somer Burke, Danielle O'Connor, Gary Walby, Claire Shippey, Seraphine Pitt, Robert J McDermott, Melinda S Forthofer
Implementation Science , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1748-5908-1-26
Abstract: The Florida Health Literacy Study (FHLS) was conducted to investigate the implementation impact of the Pfizer, Inc. Diabetes Mellitus and Hypertension Disease Self-Management Program based on health literacy principles in 14 community health centers in Florida. The intervention components discussed include health educator recruitment and training, patient recruitment, class sessions, utilization of program materials, translation of program manuals, patient retention and follow-up, and technical assistance.This report describes challenges associated with achieving a balance between adaptation for cultural relevance and fidelity when implementing the health education program across clinic sites. This balance was necessary to achieve effectiveness of the disease self-management program. The FHLS program was implemented with a high degree of fidelity to the original design and used original program materials. Adaptations identified as advantageous to program participation are discussed, such as implementing alternate methods for recruiting patients and developing staff incentives for participation.Effective program implementation depends on the talent, skill and willing participation of clinic staff. Program adaptations that conserve staff time and resources and recognize their contribution can increase program effectiveness without jeopardizing its fidelity.Self-management education programs can have a positive effect on patients' ability to control Type 2 diabetes and hypertension [1]. Given the current prevalence of these chronic diseases and associated health disparities, there is a need for community-based programs that improve health behaviors and health status. In attempts to expand such programs, health care providers often replicate successful self-management education interventions with populations that are different from those in the pilot study. In this context, program fidelity becomes an important consideration for replicating chronic disease management pr

L’action ou la contemplation. Note sur la relation de la fille de Thrace au Docteur angélique
Christophe Perrin
Meta : Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology and Practical Philosophy , 2011,
Abstract: If the opposition between “action and contemplation” seems characteristic of the history of philosophy, it also sums up Hannah Arendt’s personal history and philosophy – the diagnosis of the theoretician of the political practice on her contemporaries being eloquent. But the author of the Human condition invites us to reverse the conjunction. Arendt breaks up deliberately with philosophical tradition and particularly with Thomas Aquinas by making these terms exclusive and choosing to think either action (without contemplation) or contemplation (without action). We would like thus to reflect on the relationship between these two thinkers by examining potential echoes of Summa Theologiae within Arendt’s 1958 essay.
Le creuset et l'orfèvre : le parcours d'Ahmad Am n (1886-1954)
Emmanuelle Perrin
Revue des Mondes Musulmans et de la Méditerranée , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/remmm.238
Abstract: Grande figure de l'Egypte de la première moitié du XXe siècle, Ahmad Am n (1886-1954) appartient à la génération de penseurs et d'écrivains qui dominèrent la vie intellectuelle et littéraire de la période de l'entre-deux-guerres. Son parcours et son uvre, tels qu'il en rend compte dans son autobiographie Hayat , offrent une illustration de l'expérience, des projets et des questionnements que partagèrent ces intellectuels qui se situaient dans le prolongement du courant réformiste (islah) et du mouvement de renaissance culturelle de la Nahda. Dans ses nombreux écrits, se dessine la figure de l'intellectuel dans son r le de médiateur, alliant l'autorité du savoir au talent de la communication et insistant sur la diffusion de l'instruction comme instrument de progrès social. Ahmad Am n concevait le r le des réformateurs comme le travail d'un orfèvre qui compose un alliage : pour réduire les différences entre les mentalités, il fallait les fondre et les mêler dans un creuset unique. An important figure in Egypt during the first half of the 20th century, Ahmad Am n (1886-1956) belongs to the generation of thinkers and writers who dominated the intellectual and literary life of the period between the Two World Wars. As he refers to in his autobiography, Hayat , his itinerary and literary output offers an illustration of the experience, the projects and the questions encountered by intellectuals who lived at the end of the reformist movement (islah) and the cultural revival of the Nahda. The figure of the intellectual as a mediator, who embodies the authority of knowledge and the talent of communication, insisting upon the expansion of instruction as an instrument of social progress, is present throughout his numerous works. Ahmad Am n envisioned the role of the reformers similar to the work of a goldsmith who composes an alloyage : in order to reduce differences between mentalities, one must melt them and then mix them in a single recipient.

Discours : Revue de Linguistique, Psycholinguistique et Informatique , 2009,
Abstract: Homo narrans est une étude de grande ampleur, très savante et consistante, consacrée à l’expression des perceptions et opinions dans le langage et par le langage. Il s’agit d’une réflexion approfondie et élargie, au carrefour de la linguistique, de l’analyse du discours et de la narratologie (qui n’hésite pas en outre à s’aventurer du c té de la sociologie, de l’anthropologie, des sciences cognitives, de la philosophie du langage), visant à saisir comment le sujet s’inscrit dans le langage, c...
Migrant Smuggling: Canada’s Response to a Global Criminal Enterprise
Benjamin Perrin
International Journal of Social Science Studies , 2013, DOI: 10.11114/ijsss.v1i2.162
Abstract: Migrant smuggling is a dangerous, sometimes deadly, criminal activity. Failing to respond effectively to migrant smuggling and deter it will risk emboldening those who engage in this illicit enterprise, which generates proceeds for organized crime and criminal networks, funds terrorism and facilitates clandestine terrorist travel, endangers the lives and safety of smuggled migrants, undermines border security, and undermines the integrity and fairness of immigration systems. Introduced in the Canadian House of Commons in June 2011, the Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada’s Immigration System Act (Bill C-4) includes proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act that would enhance the existing offence of migrant smuggling, modify the general detention provisions for foreign nationals on arrival in Canada on grounds of serious criminality, criminality, or organized criminality, and require mandatory detention for groups of smuggled migrants. This article analyzes Bill C-4 and proposes amendments to it that would provide a more balanced response to migrant smuggling. The article concludes by arguing that a comprehensive approach to addressing migrant smuggling ultimately requires three primary strategies be pursued together at the national and international levels: (1) national jurisdictions must take greater action to discourage illegal migration and disrupt migrant smuggling operations and through international cooperation; (2) national jurisdictions must establish more efficient refugee-determination processes and expedient procedures to remove failed claimants; and, (3) as part of the solution, the international community should continue to develop a proactive response to the global refugee situation.
Husserl e Wittgenstein leitores de James: a quest o do tempo
Denis Perrin
DoisPontos , 2004,
Abstract: This article is based on the fact that James analysis of the consciousness of time (The Principles of Psychology, XV-XVI ) was a fundamental source common both to Husserl′s and Wittgenstein′s meditations on time, the specious present generating both Husserl′s ursprüngliche Zeitfeld and Wittgenstein′s Fliehende Gegenwart of 1929. It then examines the possibility of understanding the relation between Husserl′s and Wittgenstein′s concepts of time at the level of their respective appropriations of James′ analysis. I initially sustain that these appropriations meet in the critique of James′ presentism ( Only the present is real ) and in the idea according to which memory is a present copy-image. I also argue that anti- psychologism gives way, nevertheless, to very different developments in Husserl and Wittgenstein. Indeed, the aim of the former is to purify the phenomenological nucleus of James analysis of its psychological residues to reveal what he teaches us about the essential temporal ways of appearing. In a completely different way, Wittgenstein will question the image of the flow of present consciousness itself, by describing the genealogy of this image using errors in ordinary language. The result of this article is twofold: on one hand, if James′ analysis is really a common source of Husserl′s and Wittgenstein′s reflexions on time, in the end it results in almost opposing conclusions. On the other, the James-Husserl-Wittgenstein debate allows the confrontation between the psychological, phenomenological and grammatical approaches of time and, in this way, specifies this last in particular.
