Engineering Technology Management Graduate Student Online Learning Preferences, Mark Doggett Jun 2013

Engineering Technology Management Graduate Student Online Learning Preferences, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

As online graduate programs continue to grow, so does the availability of learning media and delivery tools. Faculty and students are increasingly using web-based means of communication such as blogs, wikis, discussion boards, and collaborative tools in addition to assigning traditional readings, lecture notes, homework, writing exercises, and examinations. There have always been multiple choices available to instructors for the delivery of content and the assessment of learning, but now there are more varieties of instructional technologies from which to choose. Given the choice, are there certain online approaches that engineering technology management graduate students prefer? Qualitative and quantitative data ...


Perceptions And Rankings Of Technology Management Competencies, Mark Doggett, Pam Mcgee, Sophia Scott Nov 2012

Perceptions And Rankings Of Technology Management Competencies, Mark Doggett, Pam Mcgee, Sophia Scott

Mark Doggett

2012 Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) Conference Proceedings In 2010, the ATMAE Management Division set out to define an applicable technology management body of knowledge using a collection of core competencies. The research incorporated existing models, industry opinions, and educator experts. ATMAE members at both the 2010 and 2011 conferences reviewed initial versions of the competency model. In addition, the model was benchmarked against existing literature and research. The researchers found consistency within the initial versions of the competency model. Interested scholars may find the initial model and supporting rationale in the 2011 ATMAE conference proceedings. This ...


Creating A State-Wide Transfer Program For Engineering Technology And Technology Management Students, Greg K. Arbuckle, Mark Doggett Dec 2011

Creating A State-Wide Transfer Program For Engineering Technology And Technology Management Students, Greg K. Arbuckle, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

The primary purpose of the Western Kentucky Pipeline for 2+2+2 Engineering Technology and Technology Management (ET/TM) students program is to significantly increase degree production and workforce preparation in central and western Kentucky through the construction of a long-term sustainable, reproducible model bridging program of cooperation between Western Kentucky University (WKU), Murray State University (MSU) and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). The program will significantly increase industrial and technology education opportunities, technology enrollment and two and four-year degree completion. Additionally, this project supports the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education’s (CPE) goal to double the ...

Online Graduate Degree Recruiting: Is It Different?, Mark Doggett, Stan Lightner Sep 2010

Online Graduate Degree Recruiting: Is It Different?, Mark Doggett, Stan Lightner

Mark Doggett

A survey of the faculty via the Engineering Technology List Serve and an online technical graduate program was conducted to gather recruiting strategy data. The questions assessed if and how recruiting for online graduate programs is different from face-to-face programs. Qualitative and quantitative data was gathered from current students and alumni of the online Technology Management Master of Science program at Western Kentucky University to ascertain any commonalities in their decision to enroll in an online program.


Learning Styles And Entrance Requirements For Online Master’S Programs, Stan Lightner, Mark Doggett, Vesta Whisler Dec 2009

Learning Styles And Entrance Requirements For Online Master’S Programs, Stan Lightner, Mark Doggett, Vesta Whisler

Mark Doggett

As more online graduate programs are created and traditional programs shift to an online format, the need to identify and understand skill sets necessary for students’ success becomes more apparent. Typically, graduate programs rely on entrance requirements such as the GRE, undergraduate GPA, and a writing sample to evaluate an applicant’s potential success. Is it reasonable to expect that other entrance requirements might be needed for student success in online graduate degree programs?

Research comparing learning and personality styles of online learners exists; however, application of this information as part of the admissions process for online graduate programs is ...

The Videoconferencing Classroom: What Do Students Think?, Mark Doggett Dec 2007

The Videoconferencing Classroom: What Do Students Think?, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

The advantages of video conferencing in educational institutions are well documented. Scholarly literature has indicated that videoconferencing technology reduces time and costs between remote locations, fill gaps in teaching services, increases training productivity, enables meetings that would not be possible due to prohibitive travel costs, and improves access to learning (Martin, 2005; Rose, Furner, Hall, Montgomery, Katsavras, & Clarke, 2000; Townes-Young & Ewing, 2005; West, 1999). However, there are few studies that analyze the effectiveness of videoconferencing from the student’s perspective. Videoconferencing technology is often touted as a method to connect with previously inaccessible student populations, but does it adequately serve the needs of the ...


Medical Technology: Contexts And Content In Science And Technology, Michael Demiranda, Mark Doggett, Jane Evans Dec 2004

Medical Technology: Contexts And Content In Science And Technology, Michael Demiranda, Mark Doggett, Jane Evans

Mark Doggett

Medical Technology: Contexts and Content in Science and Technology is one of a series of documents envisioned to assist educators in improving and strengthening students’ knowledge in a specific area of science and technology. Its purpose is to build a basic understanding of medical technology using historical perspective, conceptual framework, and educational vignettes. It was designed for use by educators who have an interest in introducing medical technology as part of a science, technology, mathematics, or applied engineering curriculum. The Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) published by the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) described twenty content standards in technology for ...


Root Cause Analysis: A Framework For Tool Selection, Mark Doggett Dec 2004

Root Cause Analysis: A Framework For Tool Selection, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

This article provides a framework for analyzing the performance of three popular root cause analysis tools: the cause-and-effect diagram, the interrelationship diagram, and the current reality tree. The literature confirmed that these tools have the capacity to find root causes with varying degrees of accuracy and quality. The literature, however, lacks a means for selecting the appropriate root cause analysis tool based upon objective performance criteria. Some of the important performance characteristics of root cause analysis tools include the ability to find root causes, causal interdependencies, factor relationships, and cause categories. Root cause analysis tools must also promote focus, stimulate ...


A Statistical Comparison Of Three Root Cause Analysis Tools, Mark Doggett Dec 2003

A Statistical Comparison Of Three Root Cause Analysis Tools, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

To solve a problem, one must first recognize and understand what is causing the problem. According to Wilson et al. (1993), a root cause is the most basic reason for an undesirable condition or problem. If the real cause of the problem is not identified, then one is merely addressing the symptoms and the problem will continue to exist. For this reason, identifying and eliminating root causes of problems is of utmost importance (Dew, 1991; Sproull, 2001). Root cause analysis is the process of identifying causal factors using a structured approach with techniques designed to provide a focus for identifying ...


Selected Collaborative Problem-Solving Methods For Industry, Mark Doggett Dec 2003

Selected Collaborative Problem-Solving Methods For Industry, Mark Doggett

Mark Doggett

In problem solving, the root cause of the problem produces an undesirable effect. Any pursuit that does not seek the root cause leads only to the symptom of the problem and, by definition, solving a symptom will not solve a problem. Problem solvers identify root causes of problems to be able to predict future cause and effect relationships. The purposeful application of an analysis method can address complex problems using a structured approach rather than emotion or intuition.
