L’Effet De La Personnalité Sur La Performance Des Étudiants Universitaires En Sciences De L’Administration À L’Examen Écrit, Au Test À Choix Multiple Et Aux Travaux Pratiques, Sawsen Lakhal, Éric Frenette, Serge Sevigny 2017 Université de Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke (Quebec)

L’Effet De La Personnalité Sur La Performance Des Étudiants Universitaires En Sciences De L’Administration À L’Examen Écrit, Au Test À Choix Multiple Et Aux Travaux Pratiques, Sawsen Lakhal, Éric Frenette, Serge Sevigny

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Plusieurs programmes universitaires en sciences de l’administration au Canada ont implanté des réformes majeures, suite aux demandes des organismes d’agrément tels que l’Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Conséquemment, de plus en plus de méthodes d’évaluation des apprentissages sont utilisées. Toutefois, l’introduction de ces méthodes dans les programmes d’études pourrait engendrer des biais aux résultats de l’évaluation des apprentissages. L’étude des facteurs pouvant avoir un effet sur la performance des étudiants aux différentes méthodes d’évaluation devient pertinente dans ce contexte. Ainsi, l’objectif de cette étude consiste à vérifier ...


An Analytical Autoethnographical Account Of Using Inquiry-Based Learning In A Graduate Research Methods Course, Jules Woolf 2017 Adelphi University

An Analytical Autoethnographical Account Of Using Inquiry-Based Learning In A Graduate Research Methods Course, Jules Woolf

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Increased emphasis is being placed on integrating research and teaching in higher education because of the numerous benefits accrued by students. In accordance, research methods courses are ubiquitously contained in curricula, ostensibly to promote research training and the research-teaching nexus. Students may not appreciate the inclusion, however, of such courses or emphasis on research training when their career ambitions are outside academia. In this analytical autoethnographic study, I examined my experience of teaching research methods to twenty graduate students using an inquiry-based learning strategy. To assist my analysis, I incorporated the students’ reflective journals of their experience of the course ...


Words Matter: The Impact Of “Catchy” Vs Conventional Course Titles On Student Interest, Joan Flaherty, Bruce G. McAdams, Joshua E. LeBlanc 2017 University of Guelph

Words Matter: The Impact Of “Catchy” Vs Conventional Course Titles On Student Interest, Joan Flaherty, Bruce G. Mcadams, Joshua E. Leblanc

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Anecdotal evidence suggests that post-secondary institutions in Canada and beyond are experimenting with the practice of substituting conventional, discipline-centred course titles with more creatively phrased, learner-centred titles. However, we could find no scholarly research to affirm, challenge or guide this practice. This study represents a preliminary foray into that research. We surveyed 368 business undergraduate and graduate students at a mid-sized Canadian university to address, and explore the implications of, this question: "Does a catchy course title elicit more student interest than its conventional counterpart?" Our findings provide some, but not unqualified, support for the practice of using catchy course ...

Factors Affecting The Governance Of Innovation Commercialization: A Theoretical Model, Datta Avimanyu, Richard Reed, Len Jessup 2017 Cleveland State University

Factors Affecting The Governance Of Innovation Commercialization: A Theoretical Model, Datta Avimanyu, Richard Reed, Len Jessup

Richard Reed

The ability to commercialize innovations is central to firm survival and success and despite research on parts of the process, there is no overarching framework. Successful commercialization can include retaining ownership of the innovation and bringing it to market, sharing it by licensing or developing it with partners, or by selling it. A firm-level model is constructed that goes from innovation sourcing, through assessment of viability, to selection of the optimum form of governance. External networks and absorptive capacity at the meso level, plus micro- and macro-level factors, as moderators affecting the strength of the relationship between viability and governance ...


Corporate Reputation And The Commercialization Of Innovation: Does Reputation Match Reality, And Does Innovation Matter?, Avimanyu Datta, Len Jessup, Richard Reed 2017 Illinois State University

Corporate Reputation And The Commercialization Of Innovation: Does Reputation Match Reality, And Does Innovation Matter?, Avimanyu Datta, Len Jessup, Richard Reed

Richard Reed

We seek to understand which firms excel at innovation and commercialization. In doing so, we first ranked companies that performed well on four measures: spending on R&D Spending (2006), Patenting (cumulative 2006 and 2007) and Commercialization of Innovations (Cumulative for 2007 and 2008). We then compared our rankings with that of Business Week/Boston Consulting Group’s annual ranking of the most innovative companies, which primarily is based on reputation measured as perceptions among sitting CEO’s. Somewhat surprisingly, there is not complete overlap between our more quantitative ranking and the one done by Business Week/BCG, and we ...

Commercialization Of Innovations: An Overarching Framework And Research Agenda, Avimanyu Datta, Richard Reed, Len Jessup

Richard Reed

Purpose – The commercialization of innovation, which is key to entrepreneurial success, is a combination of several entrepreneurial activities. Building on research from fields of management, strategy, entrepreneurship, economics, and marketing, the paper summarized the extant literature to develop a framework of commercialization and an agenda for future research. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach – Extensive review of literature, which was comprised of 194 articles across 62 journals in the fields of management, strategy, entrepreneurship, economics, and marketing. Findings – The literature was categorized into six broad themes of entrepreneurial activities: sources of innovations, types of innovation, market ...


P14. Estimating The Effects Of File-Sharing On Movie Box-Office, Zhuang Liu 2017 Western University

P14. Estimating The Effects Of File-Sharing On Movie Box-Office, Zhuang Liu

Western Research Forum

Background:

File-sharing and on-line piracy have caught great public attention. There is a public debate on whether or not we should close torrenting sites like Piratedbay.com. Copyright holders argue yes and claim substantial loss due to filesharing while Pirates claim that file-sharing is welfare-improving and the effects on sale are negligible. Right now no consensus has been reached on how file-sharing affects industry revenue in economics literature.

Methods:

Using a novel dataset of downloads from Bit-Torrent network, this paper quantifies the effects of file-sharing on movie box-office revenue. I estimate a random coefficient demand model of movies to quantify ...

An Implementation Of A Dynamic Partitioning Scheme For Web Pages, Timothy Arndt, Ben Blake, Brian Krupp, Janche Sang 2017 Cleveland State University

An Implementation Of A Dynamic Partitioning Scheme For Web Pages, Timothy Arndt, Ben Blake, Brian Krupp, Janche Sang

Ben Blake

In this paper, we introduce a method for the dynamic partitioning of web pages. The algorithm is first illustrated by manually partitioning a web page, then the implementation of the algorithm using PHP is described. The method results in a partitioned web page consisting of small pieces or fragments which can be retrieved concurrently using AJAX or similar technology. The goal of this research is to increase performance of web page delivery by decreasing the latency of web page retrieval.


A Language Designed For Programming I, Ben A. Blake 2017 Cleveland State University

A Language Designed For Programming I, Ben A. Blake

Ben Blake

The process of comprehending a problem, strategically developing a solution and translating the solution into an algorithm is arguably the single most important series of skills acquired during the education of an undergraduate computer science or information technology major. With this in mind, much care should be taken when choosing a programming language to deploy in the first University programming course. BLAKE, Beginners Language for Acquiring Key programming Essentials, is designed specifically for use in a Programming I class. BLAKE aids in enforcing fundamental object-oriented practices while simultaneously facilitating the transition to subsequent programming languages. BLAKE’s major features include ...

Do Property Characteristics Or Cash Flow Drive Hotel Real Estate Value? The Answer Is Yes, Crocker H. Liu, John B. Corgel 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Do Property Characteristics Or Cash Flow Drive Hotel Real Estate Value? The Answer Is Yes, Crocker H. Liu, John B. Corgel

Center for Hospitality Research Publications

Analysts typically use two types of methods to value hotels: comparable sales and the present value of income (sometimes calculated as discounted cash flow). This report explores whether one model is superior to the other, and whether combining both models results in more precise hotel valuations. This evaluation addresses the issue of which property characteristics and income calculations are the most effective in explaining variation in the prices of hotels, how the descending influence of hotel property characteristics and income present value components determine the prices of hotels, and whether hedonic and income-based models produce similar estimates of hotel values ...


The Us Cap And Trade Initiative: Current Status And Potential Impact On Business, Bruce W. McClain, Heidi H. Meier 2017 Cleveland State University

The Us Cap And Trade Initiative: Current Status And Potential Impact On Business, Bruce W. Mcclain, Heidi H. Meier

Bruce McClain

PURPOSE: Even during these tough economic times the current administration has proposed to revive the US “Cap and Trade” initiative and to see it through to passage. Many in the public are not aware that the idea of cap and trade is not new as similar programs have been successfully used in the US and other countries to “wind down” environmentally damaging emissions. The aim of this paper is to explain cap and trade and to project what form current proposals could take. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: This paper explains cap and trade and goes on to project what form current ...

How Have Retail Sales Patterns Changed Across Rural America? A Case Study Of Nebraska, Anil Giri, Bruce Johnson 2017 University of Central Missouri

How Have Retail Sales Patterns Changed Across Rural America? A Case Study Of Nebraska, Anil Giri, Bruce Johnson

Online Journal of Rural Research & Policy

Retailing is an important sector of any economy at all geographic levels. Majority of the times, metropolitan areas serve as retail centers for larger geographic areas as the volume of retail activity generated is certainly an important metric to those places. In this paper, using Nebraska as a case study, we analyze the retailing patterns across the state at different geographical scales. For the analysis, we use Pull Factor (PF) as the primary unit of measurement of retail strength. PF measures the relative market share of retailing by a specific geographic area over a specific time period. Results show that ...


Governance By Contract: The Implications For Corporate Bylaws, Jill E. Fisch 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Governance By Contract: The Implications For Corporate Bylaws, Jill E. Fisch

Faculty Scholarship

Boards and shareholders are increasing using charter and bylaw provisions to customize their corporate governance. Recent examples include forum selection bylaws, majority voting bylaws and advance notice bylaws. Relying on the contractual conception of the corporation, Delaware courts have accorded substantial deference to board-adopted bylaw provisions, even those that limit shareholder rights.

This Article challenges the rationale for deference under the contractual approach. With respect to corporate bylaws, the Article demonstrates that shareholder power to adopt and amend the bylaws is, under Delaware law, more limited than the board’s power to do so. As a result, shareholders cannot effectively ...
