Learning Styles And Entrance Requirements For Online Master’S Programs, Stan Lightner, Mark Doggett, Vesta Whisler 2009 Western Kentucky University

Learning Styles And Entrance Requirements For Online Master’S Programs, Stan Lightner, Mark Doggett, Vesta Whisler

Mark Doggett

As more online graduate programs are created and traditional programs shift to an online format, the need to identify and understand skill sets necessary for students’ success becomes more apparent. Typically, graduate programs rely on entrance requirements such as the GRE, undergraduate GPA, and a writing sample to evaluate an applicant’s potential success. Is it reasonable to expect that other entrance requirements might be needed for student success in online graduate degree programs?

Research comparing learning and personality styles of online learners exists; however, application of this information as part of the admissions process for online graduate programs is ...

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber

Saurabh Gupta

End-User Training (EUT) has enjoyed a rich tradition of research in Information Systems. However, with the growing pace of change in technology and the dynamic nature of business, organizations are spending an increasing amount of money on end-user training. Training methods are also changing with little research to support new approaches. Thus, extensive research is required in the future. To be credible, end-user training research should preserve and build upon the significant literature that exists, both in IS and Education. This paper provides a review of EUT literature focusing on training methods. It summarizes research findings, while pointing out key ...

Leadership Development In The United Arab Emirates: The Transformational Learning Experiences Of Women, Susan Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

To consider designing future efforts toward developing leadership programs for women in the United Arab Emirates, it is important to understand how these women learn and develop. Transformational learning theory provided a valuable theoretical lens to guide this study. In-depth, qualitative interviews were conducted with women Emirati college students to investigate how their experiences have changed these women through important influences (e.g., individuals, support systems, activities, teaching methods), struggles and challenges (e.g., new environment, learning English), and internal processes (e.g., reflection, discovery of new roles and relationships). Implications for developing leadership programs are also outlined.

Before Microfinance: The Social Value Of Microsavings In Vincentian Poverty Reduction, Marco Tavanti 2009 DePaul University

Before Microfinance: The Social Value Of Microsavings In Vincentian Poverty Reduction, Marco Tavanti

Marco Tavanti

The purpose of this article is to present and discuss the values and limits of microfinance within the context of poverty reduction, international development and community empowerment. The main thesis is that microfinance requires a more complex strategy than simply the provision of credits. The development of financial capital depends on the increase in human capacity and social capital. Microfinance is revisited under the ethical lenses of global responsibility for alleviating poverty and developing community sustainability. Through a critical review of the literature and case studies from the Philippines, the author suggests a value-based Vincentian approach to integrate microfinance into ...

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson 2009 Griffith University

The Relationship Service-Profit Chain: Conceptual Framework And Propositions., Carmel Herington, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

This conceptual paper proposes an expanded relationship service-profit chain as a business success model based on blending human resource management and marketing within the relationship marketing framework. The major contribution of the paper is the extension of thought and usage of the service-profit chain through the super-imposition of a relationship building approach to the provision of service. The proposed model draws on the original service-profit chain, which is further enhanced through the addition of a relationship marketing orientation guiding business culture and combining internal marketing and human resource management activities to best implement an updated service-profit chain. The enhanced relationship ...

Chances Are? Course Selection At Hbs And At Kellogg, Hanna Halaburda, Aldo Sesia 2009 Bank of Canada

Chances Are? Course Selection At Hbs And At Kellogg, Hanna Halaburda, Aldo Sesia

Hanna Halaburda

The case describes two alternative elective course assignment procedures: Harvard Business School's lottery-based system and Kellogg Graduate School of Management's bidding-based system. The case has been designed to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each system and their desirability (or lack thereof) depending on the context (the broader business system) within which they are implemented. The case also describes the draft used by the NBA to assign new players to teams. This allows for a discussion of whether a similar system may be preferable to lottery-based or bidding-based procedures to assign students to courses in business schools.


Totals Markets As Evidence Against Widespread Point Shaving, Rodney Paul, Richard Borghesi, Andrew Weinbach 2009 Syracuse University

Totals Markets As Evidence Against Widespread Point Shaving, Rodney Paul, Richard Borghesi, Andrew Weinbach

Rodney J. Paul

Wolfers (2006) suggests that NCAA basketball is marred by widespread gambling corruption. We examine totals wagers in a variety of sports betting markets to determine whether observed outcomes are symmetric around closing lines, an important assumption Wolfers makes in his analysis. Our results show that totals wagers result in just under outcomes more frequently than they result in just over outcomes. This occurs because gamblers strongly prefer to take the over in totals betting, and profit-seeking bookmakers capitalize by shading totals lines upwards. Likewise, prior work shows that gamblers in point spread markets strongly prefer to bet on favorites, so ...

Acteal: An Open Wound On Indigenous Human Rights, Marco Tavanti

Marco Tavanti

The December 22, 1997 massacre of indigenous Maya people in town of Acteal in the Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico is an unsolved justice and indigenous rights case. Although some paramilitary associated people were imprisoned and liberated by a decision of the Mexican Supreme Court, the sense of justice and proper reparation is nothing but a frustrated reality for various indigenous groups, especially for the family members of the victims, members of Las Abejas (The Bees) civil society organization.


Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute Research Library

Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Claudia J. Dold

The connection between weather-related disasters and mental health is bound up in treatment, both acute and long-term, of suddenly vulnerable populations, whether they are in-place survivors, displaced persons, or refugees. The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) Research Library/ University of South Florida Library System has undertaken a collection focus on disaster mental health. We have re-examined the traditional models of collection development and chosen instead to frame our collection development initiative around an ‘all hazards’ model, that allows us to proceed within both a national and international framework. Our model, conceptualized in a matrix of domains ...
