Addendum A: Wisherd And Emeriti Funds: Definition Of Terms And Explanation Of Allowable Use Of These Funds, Jason D. Kennedy

Minutes of Board Meetings of the UNL Emeriti Association

Book value is the historical cost basis of the endowment (or investment) whereas market value is what the endowment is worth right now. Basically, book value is what went into the endowment and market value is what you would get if you sold it now. Because this is a permanent endowment, only the income can be spent.

It is the endowment thatis earning income and the earnings are ...

Addendum B: Emeritus Status For Retired Faculty Academic /Administrative Employees

Minutes of Board Meetings of the UNL Emeriti Association

Emeritus status is the rank awarded by the Board of Regents to an employee at the time of retirement in recognition of substantial service rendered to the University in teaching, research, extension, or administration in a professional field. It may also be awarded to a retired administrator whose work impinges directly on the educational program.

For faculty the recommendation is initiated by a vote of the departmental faculty with the endorsement of the chair and dean. In the case of A-line administrators, the recommendation is made by that individual's immediate supervisor. Consistent with Regents policy, eligibility for emeritus status ...

Stop “Going Over” Exams!: The Multiple Benefits Of Team Exams, Gary Stark Dec 2006

Stop “Going Over” Exams!: The Multiple Benefits Of Team Exams, Gary Stark

Journal Articles

This article describes the use of team exams as a means of postexam feedback and explains the benefits of their use. Team exams are a simple procedure for those who use exams in their classrooms. Team exams can be a valuable experiential exercise in management classes but offer educational benefits in any class. Among the benefits of team exams are accurate feedback and active engagement of students in postexam review. Team exams can also serve to check the validity of exam questions and reduce the angst often associated with “going over” exams.


The Motion Picture Industry: Critical Issues In Practice, Current Research, And New Research Directions, Jehoshua Eliashberg, Anita Elberse Nov 2006

The Motion Picture Industry: Critical Issues In Practice, Current Research, And New Research Directions, Jehoshua Eliashberg, Anita Elberse

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

The motion picture industry has provided a fruitful research domain for scholars in marketing and other disciplines. The industry has high economic importance and is appealing to researchers because it offers both rich data that cover the entire product lifecycle for many new products and because it provides many unsolved “puzzles.” Although the amount of scholarly research in this area is rapidly growing, its impact on practice has not been as significant as in other industries (e.g., consumer packaged goods). In this article, we discuss critical practical issues for the motion picture industry, review existing knowledge on those issues ...

In this article, the author gives a brief overview of selected databases which represent a small portion of the Chinese electronic resources and hopes it will serve as a reference to Chinese scholars world-wide.

New Metaphors For Teaching And Learning In A University Context, Maria T. Northcote, Tony Fetherston Jul 2006

New Metaphors For Teaching And Learning In A University Context, Maria T. Northcote, Tony Fetherston

Education Conference Papers

University teachers and university students often explain their beliefs about teaching and learning by using metaphors and, in a research sense, these metaphors have often been interpreted as indicators of individuals’ educational beliefs. Critical reflection of these metaphors, provides insight into beliefs behind the practices of university teachers and students. This recent University study has uncovered some different metaphors from those commonly reported, which has provided the impetus for this paper. This paper aims to augment and extend existing research about the use of metaphor with investigative insights into individuals’ beliefs and conceptions of teaching and learning. Two groups of ...

Achieving Breakthrough Service Delivery Through Dynamic Asset Deployment Strategies, Morris. A. Cohen, Narendra Agrawal, Vipul Agrawal Jun 2006

Achieving Breakthrough Service Delivery Through Dynamic Asset Deployment Strategies, Morris. A. Cohen, Narendra Agrawal, Vipul Agrawal

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

Many firms have shifted their focus from their products to their customers and the value derived from owning and using the products. They see after-sales service as an important source of revenue and profit, customer acquisition and retention, and competitive differentiation. However, they also find it challenging to manage their service-supply chain. Service organizations must position and manage service-supply-chain resources optimally to support the delivery of after-sales service. They must also develop capabilities to respond rapidly to the demand for service in a cost-effective manner. To succeed in implementing a service-centric strategy, firms must determine what items in their products ...


Tips For Communicating Agricultural Safety To Children, Charles V. Schwab, Laura L. Miller, Lynn M. Graham Jun 2006

Tips For Communicating Agricultural Safety To Children, Charles V. Schwab, Laura L. Miller, Lynn M. Graham

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Publications

Effectively communicating agricultural safety messages to children requires an understanding of this audience's unique characteristics, which are dependent upon their developmental stages. This article identifies important characteristics for the 4-7 and 8-12 age groups that were used in developing educational resources for children who participate in farm safety day camps and in-school programs. Each age group has specific characteristics that can inhibit communication when they are not considered in designing content and approach of educational materials. In addition, there are three comprehensive communication issues that affect the effectiveness of transferring safety messages to children.
