Στην εκπαίδευση του 19ουαιώνα επικρατεί η «μάθηση γνωρίζοντας», που πραγματοποιείται με διαλέξεις, βιβλία, φίλμς (βίντεο-εικόνες). Στον 21ο αιώνα η εκπαίδευση και η διδασκαλία απαιτεί ευθυκρισία και απόκτηση δεξιοτήτων άρα «μάθηση κάνοντας» (Sandler στον Aldrich 2009, p.xxi) η οποία πρέπει να περιλαμβάνει νέα, εξελιγμένα, πιο αποτελεσματικά μέσα μεταφοράς της πληροφορίας, με στοιχεία που προσομοιάζουν την εργασιακή πραγματικότητα. Πλέον μεγάλοι σημαντικοί οργανισμοί όπως οι ένοπλες δυνάμεις, τα σώματα ασφαλείας, η αεροναυπηγική κ.ά., σε δυτικές χώρες περιλαμβάνουν τα παίγνια και τις προσομοιώσεις ως απαραίτητο μέσο στην εκπαίδευση των στελεχών τους, ιδιαίτερα σε καταστάσεις με επικινδυνότητα (Κιάφφας & Αυθίνος, 2013), αλλά και πολλά ...

The Lived Experience Of The Collegiate Female Student-Athlete, Kelsie Ann Patricia Saxe 2015 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Lived Experience Of The Collegiate Female Student-Athlete, Kelsie Ann Patricia Saxe

Masters Theses

This study explores the lived experience of the collegiate female student-athlete. This population makes up approximately half of the 463,000 student-athletes competing in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) (Irick, 2013). Previous research has explored the benefits and drawbacks of women’s participation in sport and specific experiences within the female student-athlete experience. While research heavily encourages the adolescent girl’s participation in sports, there is conflicting research regarding the impact sport has on the experiences of female student-athletes at an elite level. LaFountaine (2007) found that female student-athletes are not thriving in relation to various aspects of holistic ...

Rugged & Exciting: Examining The Personality Of A Mixed Martial Arts Brand, Jason D. Reese

Bright Ideas Conference

The purpose of this study was two-­‐fold: (a) to iden4fy the brand personality associated with a mixed mar4al arts (MMA) brand, and (b) compare perceived brand personality dimensions among different consumer groups. There is a paucity of literature that assesses brand personality and MMA. This study was the first to apply the five dimensions of brand personality presented by Aaker (1997) to the Ul4mate Figh4ng Championships brand. In order to compare brand personali4es based on involvement, there must be an understanding of involvement and its concepts as well as the history of the sport.

What Does It Take? Deciphering Performance Indicators Of Nfl Running Backs Through The Examination Of Collegiate Performance And Nfl Combine Results, Colin W. Weaver, Kevin L. Hindenach, Zach A. Vos, Antonio De Moss Jr.

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

This research uses a linear regression model to investigate the relationship between prospective NFL running backs’ NCAA FBS football statistics, NFL Combine measureables, and realized performance in the NFL as evaluated by Pro Football Focus. We observe 435 player-seasons from 2007-2014. The model suggests that collegiate conference affiliation, collegiate touchdowns, and NFL team passing strength are positively associated with NFL running back performance at statistically significant levels. Conference affiliation has the most substantial effect. NFL talent evaluators must appreciate that context is king when evaluating potential, and that pure stats are only a small piece of the puzzle.

Law Vs. Science: Should Law As A Core Subject Be Eliminated At The U.S. Armed Services Academies In Favor Of More Relevant Stem Courses?, Gregory M. Huckabee

gregory m huckabee

Law vs. Science: Should law as a core subject be eliminated at the U.S. Armed Services Academies in favor of more relevant STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) courses? As recent cyberterror events have unfolded, more STEM knowledge is needed in the armed forces. STEM courses are on the march for inclusion in greater numbers in academy core curriculums. In order for new STEM courses to join the academic heart of academy learning, predecessor courses must be reviewed for relevancy, significance, and materiality. One core course in common at all three military academies is law. Yet few core curriculums can ...

A Compensating Differential Approach To Valuing The Social Benefit Of Minor League Baseball, Nola Agha, Dennis Coates 2015 University of San Francisco

A Compensating Differential Approach To Valuing The Social Benefit Of Minor League Baseball, Nola Agha, Dennis Coates

Sport Management

This research utilizes a compensating differential framework to measure the social benefits of minor league baseball teams. Consistent with findings at the major league level, individual housing observations from 138 metropolitan areas between 1993 and 2005 show that affiliated teams are associated with a significant 5.7% increase in rents in mid-sized markets ranging from 0.4 to 1.4 million people. On the other hand, independent teams and stadiums are associated with insignificant effects on rents. The positive effect of affiliated minor league teams suggests they are a valuable urban amenity that can contribute to local quality of life.

The South Has Not Risen In Nhl Attendance Numbers Compared To The North, Kyle Stich

Sport Management Undergraduate

This research looked at attendance capacity for traditional and non-traditional hockey markets. The aim was to attempt to determine the extent the attendance capacities differed between the two markets. Previously, there had not been any quantitative analyses done comparing traditional and non-traditional hockey markets so this study aimed to add new knowledge to that area. The National Hockey League (NHL) grapples with the validity of some of the current markets, with many observers calling for some teams to relocate to new markets. This research aimed to attempt to determine how justified those criticisms were.

Kim, Trail, & Magnusen (2013) have previously ...

However, it was also known that fans’ team identification affected resistance to change (Wu, 2012) and sense of home had a positive impact on stadium satisfaction (Lee, 2012). The sample for this study consisted ...
