Regulating Casino Gaming: A Checklist For States Considering It, Leonard E. Goodall Jan 1988

Regulating Casino Gaming: A Checklist For States Considering It, Leonard E. Goodall

Hospitality Review

In his essay - Regulating Casino Gaming: A Checklist for States Considering It – by Leonard E. Goodall, Professor of Management and Public Administration, College of Business and Econornics, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Professor Goodall initially states: “Since various states are likely to continue to debate the issue of the establishment of legal casinos, and since states considering legal casinos must also decide how best to regulate them, the author discusses the similarities and contrasts in the regulatory systems already in operation.”

Certainly not all states have solicited casino gaming, or what people generally refer to as gambling, but many have ...

Part Ii Fostering Student Inquiry Jan 1988

Part Ii Fostering Student Inquiry

To Improve the Academy

The world has no shortage of reform advocates exhorting teachers to promote "active student involvement in learning." Most teachers would love to have active, involved students. But student reticence in class is notorious and figuring out how to overcome it (or bypass it altogether) is a nontrivial task. The two articles in this section suggest very different approaches to the task.

Notes On A Classroom Research Program, Bette Lasere Erickson, Glenn R. Erickson

To Improve the Academy

Sometimes, when you least expect it, a good idea stands up, introduces itself, and asks to be recognized. So it happened two years ago at the AAHE meetings. Pat Cross was urging us all to take teaching seriously -- not a particularly novel idea for POD folks -- but we sat up and took notice when she proposed.

Alternatives For Evaluating The Death Education Student, J. Eugene Knott Jan 1988

Alternatives For Evaluating The Death Education Student, J. Eugene Knott

To Improve the Academy

Although grading in postsecondary education, according to Eison and Pollio (1987), dates back about 200 years, the formal pursuit of learning focused on human mortality per se has been a part of higher education for only about thirty years. In that brief period, however, has come a rapidly growing concern with issues of evaluating and grading, paired with concern about motivation for enrollment in such courses in the first place. I've been very interested for some years in self-assessment as it bears on evaluation for grading, especially in courses where the content and approach encourage a great deal of ...


Student Styles And Learning In Two College Of Business Courses, Blair Lord Jan 1988

Student Styles And Learning In Two College Of Business Courses, Blair Lord

To Improve the Academy

In teaching junior and senior finance and insurance courses, courses which must be applied in their emphasis, I think it important to concentrate on developing problem solving skills. Sometimes this means solving straight-forward, technical problems. At other times I focus on more open-ended managerial or public policy problems. While not wanting to foster a "technical school" mentality, the career orientation of business disciplines makes it appropriate to focus on developing the students' ability to apply course material. An ancillary benefit from this orientation is that it nurtures problem solving and analytical skills generally.


Weekly Quizzes And Examination Performance In Intermediate Accounting, Joseph Matoney Jan 1988

Weekly Quizzes And Examination Performance In Intermediate Accounting, Joseph Matoney

To Improve the Academy

For years I have noticed how hard my students work on my course during examination weeks and have toyed with the idea of giving weekly quizzes as a means of motivating them to work that hard more consistently. The material which Intermediate Accounting covers is extensive and technical. Students can ill-afford to fall behind. When they do, they're likely to find it much more difficult to catch up than they expect. Perhaps as important, class meetings can be woefully lackluster and nonproductive when significant numbers of students don't know what's going on.


Part I Classroom Research Jan 1988

Part I Classroom Research

To Improve the Academy

At the 1987 POD meeting, Pat Cross challenged us to discover what could be learned by encouraging faculty to become researchers in their own classrooms, answering their own questions empirically, whether through formal or informal investigations. Classroom research is not new to POD members as previous editions of this volume attest. In characteristic POD fashion, several of our members stepped up their efforts in response to Cross's challenge. The results of their inquiries are presented here.

Part Iii Academic Life: Realities And Possibilities

To Improve the Academy

The first two articles in this section report results of intensive interview studies with dozens of faculty. Hageseth and Atkins note connections between the institutional context and the quality of faculty life. Sorcinelli documents the joys and frustrations of new faculty, and describes programs at her institution to support faculty during their first few years on campus.
