DamNation film screening

DamNation film screening April 23

Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life allowing salmon and other wild fish to return to primeval spawning grounds after decades without access. DamNation takes viewers through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, as well as through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature. Learn more and watch the trailer.

Devin Trainor
MS Natural Science Education/ Environment and Natural ResourcesProject title: Basic Psychological Need Fulfillment Through Adventure Education
Public defense:  Tuesday, April 15, 10 am in the Kendall House conference room
Abstract: This literature review explores adventure education programming through the lens of basic human need fulfillment.  The psychological needs theory of Self-Determination Theory (SDT) identifies fulfillment of the needs for competence, relatedness, and autonomy as necessary conditions for well-being and mental health in ones life.  Literature involving adventure education is assessed for evidence of SDT need fulfillment in the course setting.  Findings indicate that there is potential for SDT need fulfillment on adventure education courses.  Recommendations for increasing SDT need fulfillment are outlined for each need, along with recommendations for instructors, course structures and transference.  This literature review has implications that are relevant to course instructors, both adventure and experiential education organizations, and the broader role of educational institutions as a whole.

MS Agricultural and Applied Economics/Environment and Natural Resources
Project title: “Stacking Subsidies in Factor Markets: Evidence from Market Experiments.”
Public defense : Thursday, May 9, time and location TBD
Abstract: Government policies employ different programs such as subsidies to increase efficiency in markets and enhance societal welfare. In this study we use laboratory market experiments to analyze the distribution of subsidy benefits in factor markets when both buyers and sellers receive subsidies in a market with few buyers relative to sellers. Results from the experiments show that when subsidizing both sides of the market framing effects matter, and when markets are buyer concentrated, related subsidy distributions generally tend to favor buyers.
