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 ...

Sport Management Faculty Publications

In May 2014, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) launched its Pride campaign and became the first professional sport league in the US to explicitly reach out to gay fans. As the public opinion toward homosexuality has been changing, sport marketers need to understand how to reach and respond to heterosexual and gay fans without alienating one or the other. The purpose of this study was to investigate heterosexual and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) fans’ attitudes toward the Pride campaign, and the impact of fandom, attitude toward the Pride campaign and sexual orientation on consumption intentions. One-way ...

This case study describes a fictitious student’s interaction with an industry professional who is an expert on Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and marketing analytics in the sport industry, and the student’s desire to be an intern in the ...

Internship Preparedness: A Look Into The Internship Experience At St. John Fisher College, Mcquade T. Milligan

Sport Management Undergraduate

In the field of sport management, internships have been shown to be an important factor in the initial placement in the sport industry.

Through survey data it was uncovered that participants who indicated a higher satisfaction with their final internship were more likely to end up in a career similar that of their ...

Sport Management Undergraduate

Business success continues to be influenced by employee job satisfaction because satisfied employees are more likely to produce quality work, stay motivated, and continue with the organization for a longer period of time. The research into job satisfaction has only gone as far as the business industry but has not yet reached the sport industry. Using the sport of baseball, interviews with ten Triple-A, International League ticket office employees uncovered there are many commonalities between the sport and business industries in terms of factors that influence job satisfaction. Therefore, sport organizations can likely utilize existing research in this area to ...

Additionally, other factors of sport such as gender, coaching styles, effective student leaders, the wins and goals met as a team, and how athletes interact off the field were also taken into consideration and compared to the amount of cohesion ...


What Factors Help Decide To Report A Concussion Or Not, Anthony Finger 2016 St. John Fisher College

What Factors Help Decide To Report A Concussion Or Not, Anthony Finger

Sport Management Undergraduate

Athletes have the common issue on whether they should report a concussion or to continue to play through it. The athletes often suspect symptoms of concussions but then do not connect them to the injury concussion itself. Personal and external factors play a role in their decision making. This study looked at the St. John Fisher athletes and their decision making process on whether they report or not. The study included six football athletes and two non-football athletes, including a basketball and soccer athlete. The researcher found that athletes chose to play through their injuries and that the biggest factor ...

A Comprehensive Study Of Leadership Styles And Various Factors Contributing To The Success Of Athletic Teams, Christopher P. Intoppa

Selected Honors Theses

This paper involved a study of leadership styles in the realm of athletics. Using literature that had been written on the subject and examinations of particularly successful coaches over time, an accurate determination of leadership styles, qualities, and characteristics that contribute to success was able to be achieved. It was concluded that transformational leadership styles are explicitly profitable when dealing with athletes at any level of athletic competition. However, it was also discovered through research that these qualities are even more valuable if paired with an authoritative style of delivering instruction, mutual respect between coaches and players, and discipline by ...

Assessing The Influence Of Sport Security Operations On The Guest Experience: Using The Delphi Method To Understand Practitioner Perspectives, Kiernan O. Gordon, William Andrew Czekanski, James A. Demeo

Journal of Sport Safety and Security

Increases in sport security measures may have an influence on guests’ decisions to attend sporting events or stay longer at them if they are already present. There is currently a dearth of literature on the consequences of security measures and related technologies on the guest experience and its resultant impact on revenue generation. The current project, however, aims to be an important, initial attempt to fill this gap.

The current project involved a panel of subject matter experts currently working for a sport venue whose anchor tenant is in one of the United States’ four, major, professional sport leagues to ...


Sport, Twitter Hashtags And The Public Sphere, Brendan O'Hallarn 2016 Old Dominion University

Sport, Twitter Hashtags And The Public Sphere, Brendan O'Hallarn

Human Movement Sciences Theses & Dissertations

Sport and social media researchers have been challenged to go beyond simply analyzing the content of public social media posts, and to incorporate different critical frameworks to seek more meaningful findings about these relatively new online phenomena. This three-paper format dissertation attempts to frame interactions through sport-themed Twitter hashtags sociologically by incorporating a critical theory rarely deployed in the study of sport—the public sphere. In paper one, the study introduces a theoretical model which suggests sport consumption patterns and the unique architecture of Twitter can promote public sphere-like discourse in hashtags connected to sport. The model suggests amplifiers and ...

Northwestern University, The University Of Missouri And The "Student-Athlete": Mobilization Efforts And The Future, Adam Epstein, Kathryn Kisska-Schulze 2016 Central Michigan University

Northwestern University, The University Of Missouri And The "Student-Athlete": Mobilization Efforts And The Future, Adam Epstein, Kathryn Kisska-Schulze

Adam Epstein

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate student-athletes in the U.S. have a powerful voice in issues that matter to them. This was most recently demonstrated in two ways, including the 2014 Northwestern University football team’s unsuccessful-yet valiant-attempt to organize as a union, and the 2015 University of Missouri’s successful demonstration, both in-person and via social media, ultimately resulting in the resignation of the president of the University. The paper explores the history of student-athlete mobilizations and demonstrate that it should come as no surprise to see increasingly public attempts in the future as student-athletes become ...

Administrative Perspectives Of Stadium Alcohol Policy: Alcohol-Related Public Safety Measures In College Football Stadia, Brian E. Menaker, Beth H. Chaney, Richard Dale Sheptak Jr.

Journal of Sport Safety and Security

Excessive alcohol consumption remains an issue at spectator sporting events worldwide. Sound security policies are integral in dampening the impact that sporting events have on host communities, the stadium environment, and patrons of the events. This study explores the phenomenon of differing alcohol policy development and implementation at sports venues. Interviews were conducted on alcohol consumption policy enforcement and implementation at college football stadia to determine the emerging themes and resonating perceptions of facility and operations administrators at the seven National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools in the Southeastern United States. Many themes emerged ...


Evaluating Minor League Baseball Social Identity, Social Image, And Brand Equity., Christan David Hanna 2016 University of Louisville

Evaluating Minor League Baseball Social Identity, Social Image, And Brand Equity., Christan David Hanna

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

An understanding of brand equity, the value a brand adds to a product (Keller, 1993), can provide valuable information to sport managers. This is due to the fact price elasticity, competitive strength, and brand loyalty are consequences of brand equity (Keller, 2001). The degree to which fans identify with teams has been found to predict brand equity in major professional sport (Boyle & Magnusson, 2007) and major college sport (Watkins, 2014) contexts. One purpose of this study is to assess whether fan identification is predictive of brand equity in a MiLB context. Further, Lassar, Mittal, and Sharma (1995) found social image ...
