Research Leadership Learning Podcast

Welcome to the Research Leadership Learning Podcast from Dowling College's Research Leadership Learning Center.

On this podcast we explore many fields of knowledge related to leadership in social agencies, bringing you conversations with teachers, principals, superintendents and others working in and around the Long Island region, including Dowling faculty and Dowling doctoral candidates. By sharing research and knowledge from the field, we hope to develop a profound human awareness among leaders of social agencies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and beyond.

Today Dr. Albert Inserra talks with Dr. Jill Karp on the subject of trust and its effects in the elementary classroom. Dr. Karp is a recent graduate of Dowling's Doctoral program. In her dissertation, Teacher Expectations and the Mediation Effects of Trust on Eighth Grade Adolescent Academic Self-Efficacy and Achievement, she surveyed eighth graders from two middle schools on Long Island. She discusses her findings on the role of the trust factor in student self-efficacy and possible implications for the curriculum and classroom teaching.
