Moral Development Of Undergraduate Business Students: Online Vs. Residential Programs, Kevin L. Rawls Jul 2015

Moral Development Of Undergraduate Business Students: Online Vs. Residential Programs, Kevin L. Rawls

Kevin L. Rawls

Research related to moral reasoning and development has been increasing over the past decade as a result of the business-related scandals of the early 2000’s. Education has been shown to have a strong correlation to the moral development of individuals. Additionally, the rise in online learning has brought a new dynamic to the cognitive moral development of future business leaders. The problem addressed in this study is how an online program impacts the moral reasoning development of undergraduate business students. This study issued the DIT survey to senior-level undergraduate students declared as business majors from a face-to-face and online ...

A Grounded Theory Study Explaining How Female Doctoral Candidates Negotiate Their Identities As Mothers And Scholars And Persist Unto Degree Completion, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Lucinda S. Spaulding Feb 2015

A Grounded Theory Study Explaining How Female Doctoral Candidates Negotiate Their Identities As Mothers And Scholars And Persist Unto Degree Completion, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Lucinda S. Spaulding

Lucinda S. Spaulding

The purpose of this grounded theory study was to generate a model that explains how female doctoral candidates manage and negotiate the tensions relating to their roles and identities as females, mothers, and academics within the social structure of academia. Data was collected via a questionnaire, life map, and semi-structured interview from 11 doctoral candidates enrolled in a nationally accredited Doctor of Education (EdD) program in the southeastern United States. The theoretical model produced from this study depicts the development and relationship among EdD students’ identities as females, professionals, and academics and how the roles and responsibilities related to these ...


A Conversation On The Need For Women To Successfully Manage Their Multiple Identity Dimensions In Order To Persist In The Doctoral Process, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Maria T. Spaulding Feb 2015

A Conversation On The Need For Women To Successfully Manage Their Multiple Identity Dimensions In Order To Persist In The Doctoral Process, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Maria T. Spaulding

Lucinda S. Spaulding

This conversation focuses on challenges specific to female doctoral students given their multiple dimensions of identity (e.g., wife, mother, daughter, professional, emerging scholar) and the tensions they experience as they intersect these dimensions across the varied stages of the doctoral journey. This discussion is prompted by research indicating many women fail to successfully negotiate these tensions and consequently choose not to begin or cease to persist in a doctoral program. In this session we discuss (a) tensions women face in the doctoral process, (b) a theoretical foundation for female identity, and (c) strategies for successfully intersecting multiple identity dimensions ...


On The Front Lines: The Role Of Teachers In The Prevention Of Child Trafficking Through Education And Awareness Of Online Recruitment Tactics, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Timothy R. Spaulding Sep 2014

On The Front Lines: The Role Of Teachers In The Prevention Of Child Trafficking Through Education And Awareness Of Online Recruitment Tactics, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Timothy R. Spaulding

Lucinda S. Spaulding

Generating an estimated 32 billion US dollars annually (International Labor Organization [ILO] 2009), sex trafficking is one of the fastest-growing industries internationally and domestically. Further, children constitute approximately 25% of trafficked individuals (ILO, 2012). The Trafficking Victim’s Protection Act (TVPA; 2000) states that an individual under the age of 18 involved in any form of commercial sexual exploitation meets the criteria for sex trafficking of a minor, and the National Strategy focuses on 4 types of exploitation: (a) child pornography, (b) online enticement of children for sexual purposes, (c) commercial sexual exploitation of children, and (d) child sex tourism ...

The Effect Of Cacrep Accreditation On Credentialing Exam Scores, Richard Justin Silvey Aug 2013

The Effect Of Cacrep Accreditation On Credentialing Exam Scores, Richard Justin Silvey

Richard Justin Silvey

The age of accountability, evolving from outcome- and standards-based practices, is prevalent in the education, healthcare, and counseling fields. In regards to standards, counselor education is framed by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) for best practices in terms of content knowledge; however the assessment of competence of that knowledge is not easily defined. Furthermore, school counselors are held to the standards of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) to practice within a certain scope of competence; however, the determination of that level is also not easily or clearly defined. This research sought to investigate ...

Animation Overrides, Prims And Student Teaching: Managing And Collaborating With Undergraduate Teacher Candidates In Multi-User Virtual Environments, Randall S. Dunn Jan 2012

Animation Overrides, Prims And Student Teaching: Managing And Collaborating With Undergraduate Teacher Candidates In Multi-User Virtual Environments, Randall S. Dunn

Dr. Randall S. Dunn

The mid-two thousands hinged the future of education on the use of multi-user virtual environments. The frenzy over this clumsy but multimedia rich environment ran viral. Assumptions about the nature of the “traditional” college student (late teens to earl twenties) fed into the thought that we merely had to virtually build it for the students to come (and be engaged, motivated, and potentially learn). Now, we see the rise of mobile technologies, augmented reality and collaborative online social networks as replacements for this “old technology.” Where does that leave these virtual playgrounds for the socialites and potentially the learners?


Gifted Dropouts: Phenomenological Case Studies Of Rural Gifted Students, Fred Milacci, James Zabloski Jan 2012

Gifted Dropouts: Phenomenological Case Studies Of Rural Gifted Students, Fred Milacci, James Zabloski

Fred Milacci

In this qualitative phenomenological study, we sought to explore the life experiences of 7 rural gifted individuals who dropped out of school. In addition, we investigated whether participants shared commonalities that might have led to the phenomenon of dropping out. The problem was that a paucity of research exists about gifted dropouts; subsequently, no one had asked our participants to share their stories prior to the present study. By searching for meaning in their individual and combined stories, we uncovered two overarching themes related to their decisions to drop out: the Influence of Relationships (with the subthemes, relational traumas, and ...

Examining The Need For Customized Satisfaction Survey Instruments Measuring Brand Loyalty For Higher Educational Institutions, Kendrick W. Brunson Jan 2010

Examining The Need For Customized Satisfaction Survey Instruments Measuring Brand Loyalty For Higher Educational Institutions, Kendrick W. Brunson

Kendrick W. Brunson

The success or failure of service-based organizations is determined in large part by consumers’ perceived value of those services. Value can be measured in terms of consumers’ perceived performance quality in comparison with the cost to consumers of purchasing the service. The ideal goal of service marketing organizations is to obtain and maintain a loyal base of delighted customers. Loyalty can be measured in terms of customer satisfaction, retention levels, and perception of service quality. In the higher education industry, private institutions compete for student enrollment with state-funded institutions on factors other than cost value. Standard quality and satisfaction survey ...

Who Believes What? Clearing Up Confusion Over Intelligent Design And Young-Earth Creationism, Marcus R. Ross Jan 2005

Who Believes What? Clearing Up Confusion Over Intelligent Design And Young-Earth Creationism, Marcus R. Ross

Marcus R. Ross

The question of what differentiates young-Earth creationism (YEC) from Intelligent Design (ID) has resulted in inaccurate and confusing terminology, and hinders both understanding and dialogue. Though both YEC and ID groups have drawn distinctions between themselves, previous attempts to classify design-based positions on origins have been unable to adequately resolve their relationships. The Nested Hierarchy of Design, a multiple-character classification system, categorizes teleological positions according to the strength of claims regarding the reality, detectability, source, method, and timing of design, and results in an accurate and robust classification of numerous positions. This method avoids the philosophical and theological pitfalls of ...
