Combining Forces: The Joint Defense Agreement In Civil Litigation, Stephen Messer 2010 University of Florida

Combining Forces: The Joint Defense Agreement In Civil Litigation, Stephen Messer

Stephen Messer

From day one of law school aspiring lawyers are taught that information shared in confidence between a lawyer and his client is confidential. Although all lawyers are well aware of this, surprisingly few know that conversations with a client and someone else's lawyer can also be privileged. This is what happens when a joint defense agreement is created; Joint defense agreements extend the attorney client privilege throughout the entire defense camp in cases where multiple defendants and their counsel have common interests in the litigation. This often overlooked, yet highly effective legal strategy may serve as a valuable tool ...


Consulting Ethics, William Feighery 2010 Selected Works

Consulting Ethics, William Feighery

William Feighery

An important, if much neglected, arena within the field of tourism studies is the role of tourism scholars as consultants in the development process. For individuals within this field of ‘expert knowledge’ participation in consultancy projects often places them at the heart of complex and competing interests at local, national and international level. Such complexity necessitates ethically informed decisions. In this paper I first explore the evolution of tourism related research and consultancy, before considering the rise of ethics in arenas of professional practice. Further, I consider the Foucauldian construct of ‘technologies of the self’ as potentially offering an ethical ...

Using Reflection Surveys To Improve Teaching And Learning, Jackie Dobrovolny, Patrick R. Lowenthal 2010 University of Colorado Denver

Using Reflection Surveys To Improve Teaching And Learning, Jackie Dobrovolny, Patrick R. Lowenthal

Patrick R. Lowenthal

Faculty are being held accountable these days for quality teaching, student learning, and student satisfaction like never before (Lowenthal, 2008). While research and publishing are in many ways still the sine qua non for faculty success and promotion as well as institutional prestige (Boyer, 1990), more emphasis is being placed on quality teaching these days (Lowenthal, 2008). At the University of Colorado Denver, like many other institutions, end-of-course student evaluations (called FCQ's) assess how well individual faculty are teaching. And while research suggests that these evaluations can be useful and even improve aspects of teaching if used in certain ...


Getting To Know You: The First Week Of Class And Beyond, Joanna C. Dunlap, Patrick R. Lowenthal 2010 University of Colorado Denver

Getting To Know You: The First Week Of Class And Beyond, Joanna C. Dunlap, Patrick R. Lowenthal

Patrick R. Lowenthal

The first week of class...whether on-campus or online, we always plan a few orientation and get-to-know-you activities in an attempt to get our courses off on the right foot. One thing we have learned about these types of activities is that they cannot—and should not—take place only during the first week of a class. To really support students and help build a productive online learning community, these types of activities need to occur throughout the semester. Below are a few activities we have used to help students get oriented to and familiar with the course structure and ...


Supplementing A Librarian's Information Literacy Toolkit With Textbooks: A Scan Of Basic Communication Course Texts, Melissa Kozel-Gain, Rick A. Stoddart 2010 Boise State University

Supplementing A Librarian's Information Literacy Toolkit With Textbooks: A Scan Of Basic Communication Course Texts, Melissa Kozel-Gain, Rick A. Stoddart

Rick A Stoddart

This inquiry subjectively examines selected basic communication textbooks for information literacy concepts from the communication discipline point of view. Librarians can build on these concepts in library skills instruction sessions for first-year communication students. This analysis reveals that communication textbook authors are addressing information literacy concepts and standards with content, exercises, examples, and, most importantly, context; and the authors are often utilizing their own discipline-specific terminology to do so. Because finding, using, and evaluating information is a cornerstone of communication education and because the most successful information literacy efforts result from learning its tenets in a variety of contexts, librarians ...

Outcomes Of A Spiritually Focused Wilderness Orientation Program, Andrew Bobilya, Lynn Akey, Donald Mitchell Jr. 2010 Montreat College

Outcomes Of A Spiritually Focused Wilderness Orientation Program, Andrew Bobilya, Lynn Akey, Donald Mitchell Jr.

Donald Mitchell Jr., Ph.D.

Higher education often supports new student transition through various orientation programs. Recently a greater focus on student spiritual growth has emerged as an important aspect. The wilderness orientation program in this study is unique because of its length (12–14 days) and its focus on students’ spiritual development. The purpose of this study was to understand the students’ perceptions of a spiritually focused wilderness orientation program and the influence of their participation in the program during their transition to the college. Data were collected through a post-course essay, the Student Adaptations to College Questionnaire, and a focus group interview. The ...


Competing Perspectives: Communicating The Value Of School Librarians And Ict Skills To School Principals/Administrators, Rick A. Stoddart 2010 Boise State University

Competing Perspectives: Communicating The Value Of School Librarians And Ict Skills To School Principals/Administrators, Rick A. Stoddart

Rick A Stoddart

This paper will examine how LIS schools prepare pre-service librarians to communicate with school principal/administrators the importance and implementation of Information & Communication-Technology (ICT) standards. A recent state-wide study has shown that many school principals/ administrators derive their understanding as to the role of school libraries/ librarians from three main sources: personal experience (84.7%), on-the-job experience (81.3%), and informal communication with school librarians (80.7%).1 Obviously, school librarian interaction with principals/administrators has large impact on an administrator’s viewpoint on school libraries’/librarians’ educational efficacy. Unfortunately, those principals/administrators who relied on on-the-job experience as a knowledge base tended to assess their school or district’s teaching of ICT standards lower than those who had more formal training such as undergraduate/graduate coursework or professional development.2 Couple this finding with principals/administrators strongly seeing the desired roles of school librarians as instructional support (94.9%) and as a reading motivator (93.2%)3; and this results in a disjointed perception as to the responsibilities of the school librarian toward ICT skills within a school or district. Based on the results of the Idaho School Impact Study 2009, as well as drawing from the professional literature, this paper will outline how school librarians face competing perceptions from school administrators/principals as to their role and impact within a school/district. The paper will also seek to answer these questions: ● In facing these ...
