When Boyer’s model was released in 1990, the first element was the “scholarship of discovery” which is simple terms refers to the academic version of “research” (Boyer, 1990). In essence, the scholarship of discovery takes into account “publications and research as the yardstick in the merit, promotion and tenure system” of higher education in the US (Hofmeyer, Newton & Scott, 2007). Also, the scholarship of discovery is understood as original research that expands or challenges current knowledge in a discipline (Hofmeyer, Newton & Scott, 2007). According to Boyer (1990), scholarship is held at the highest regard in higher education because it resembles the commitment to “knowledge for its own sake, to freedom of inquiry and to following, in a disciplined fashion, an investigation wherever it may lead” (Boyer, 1990). Scholarship is one of the three pillars of the role of faculty, and the academic leader’s role is to support
Interdisciplinary research has become increasingly important in tackling today’s wicked and complex issues (Rice, 2013). However in order to collaborate and share ideas on the myriad methods, concepts and theories offered by different disciplines, effective communication is necessary to create common ground and understanding within an interdisciplinary team. A number of communication obstacles can be faced when dealing with different disciplinary language, ideas and when dealing with individuals at a personal level. This is not only a challenge that pervades all stages of research but also a process that takes a significant amount of time and money to overcome (Strang, 2009). For newcomers who underestimate the challenges involved in interdisciplinary

This report focuses on the fact that there has been no agreement or consensus on a Democratic Party’s appropriate and most suitable party structure especially the composition. The layout and groups of the party is being debated. A democratic party is aware that it is a form of a coalition party. The changing of the groups which makes up a democratic party has occurred over time, especially after the reforms of 1968.

Growth development in groups do not occur after one session because it takes some time for group members to warm up to each other, learn about group goals and develop group roles. The five-stage model of group development by Tuckman suggests that there must be five stages that groups go through as they change over time. The first stage is known as forming where members experience tentative interactions, tension, and concern over ambiguity, growing interdependence and attempts to identify the nature of the situation (Forsyth 2014). Reflecting back to the very first group session that took place in January, there were only three members present at the time and so during this stage, members interacted with one and another but there were no roles

It is when I am reviewing these deliverables that I feel that I lack the proper knowledge to make appropriate decisions, leaving me to doubt my overall ability to lead the project. Not having this self-confidence can negatively affect my team as they are looking to me for guidance and inspiration (DuBois, et al.,
Back in 1984, Beer et al developed the Harvard model of the HRM. Beer et al believe that the human resource is passes many of pressures nowadays, therefore, eliminating the pressures is required. These pressures could be eliminating by having a long-term perspective in terms of controlling people and potential assets rather than just variable costs.
