Testing The Effectiveness Of A Quality Assurance System: The Example Of Hong Kong, David Lim 2016 Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong, Vocational Training Council

Testing The Effectiveness Of A Quality Assurance System: The Example Of Hong Kong, David Lim

Prof. David Lim

Operating a quality assurance system in tertiary education is the rule rather than the exception, because of the belief that it will improve quality. However, proving this is not easy. This study examines three ways of providing the evidence: the a priori method, the stepwise backtracking method, and the external evaluation method. The quality assurance system of the Vocational Training Council of Hong Kong is used as a case‐study, but the findings on the advantages and disadvantages of using these methods have relevance for testing the effectiveness of quality assurance systems for other education institutions.

Food Nation 美食天堂, 2016 Vocational Training Council

Food Nation 美食天堂

AMBROSIA 客道 : The Magazine of The International Culinary Institute

Hong Kong derives its name from a Cantonese expression 香港, which means "fragrant harbour". Scholars attribute the name to incense factories that stored merchandise in Aberdeen warehouses in the 19th century, but these days it's the scent of cooking that fills the air with sweet aromas as a wave of new restaurants open their doors. As Daniel Jeffreys reports, the city's vibrant culinary scene has made its appetite for skilled labour almost insatiable.

英文"Hong Kong"得自於「香港」的粵語諧音,「香港」意指「芳香之港」。根據學者研究,在19世紀之時,石排灣港口﹝今香港仔一帶﹞因運銷香樹製品馳名遠近,享有「香港」之美譽,其後整座島嶼亦因此得名。時至今日,隨著眾多新餐廳的次第開張,令香港飄香四溢、享譽全球的已不再是香料,而是各種美味佳餚。而這座城市蓬勃發展的飲食業,亦對訓練有素的專業人員求才若渴。

Mathematics Proficiency Of Fashion Marketing And Fashion Merchandising Students, Christina Gordon Miles

STEMPS Theses & Dissertations

Fashion Marketing and Fashion Merchandising (FMM) students should be prepared with a sound mathematics background as they graduate from programs and enter today’s workforce.

The Mathematics for Industry Test (MIT), a 40-item, timed, paper-and-pencil assessment was administered to 94 entering and 111 completing students enrolled ...


Vocational Implications Of Cult Involvement, Melissa Dawn Jones Wilkins 2016 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Vocational Implications Of Cult Involvement, Melissa Dawn Jones Wilkins

Theses and Dissertations

Currently, the majority of studies published on cult membership have been quantitative and have focused primarily on theories and trends about cult membership. These studies have been insufficient in shedding light on the individual’s experience. Qualitative studies are necessary to explore the individual’s accounts of their experiences with past cult involvement and the impact these experiences have on employment. Because of the potential vocational impacts of cult involvement, it is valuable to explore the psychosocial aspects of work. A qualitative methodology informed by phenomenology was utilized to investigate the unique experience of individuals obtaining employment after leaving a ...

In the 15th book in the series Writing Lives, Ethnographic Narratives, edited by Arthur P. Bochner and Carolyn Ellis, Kristine L. Muñoz challenges us to look to the silent moments of our ethnographic transcriptions for additional meaning.
