The strategy of cooperative learning to work with others and see different point of views rank 2nd with a weighted mean of 4.24. In every institution, academicians are trying to increase the effectiveness of learning through a variety of teaching approaches. Over the last three decades, one of the pedagogical practices that has attracted much attention to the world of education is cooperative approach. Cooperative learning has become quite an internationally known area among social researches (Slavin, 2011). It is considered to be far more effective compared to lecture-based teaching ( Tran & Lewis, 2012a; Tran & Lewis 2012b; Slavin, 2011, Johnson & Johnson, 2009).
Structural Integrity of Bethel University: College of Professional Studies Throughout this essay, I will be presenting detailed information regarding my position on Bethel University: College of Professional Studies’ organizational structure and the function it has within the higher education industry. Additionally, I will provide historical background information, as well as, compare Bethel University’s current organizational structure to modern management theory and applicable frameworks. With the assistance of Bolman and Deal’s (2017) “Reframing Organizations: Artistry, Choice, and Leadership (6th ed. ), I will have the opportunity to present and identify current structural strengths and weaknesses, in comparison to Bethel University’s overall mission and productivity. Moreover, with the additional support of Gareth Morgan’s (2006) “Images of Organization,” I will be able to utilize metaphorical terminology to increase my overall perspective on organizational life and the need for multi-dimensional management mentalities.
Accountability and obligation, responsibility to someone else for something—these are the dual dimensions of objective administrative responsibility” (Terry, 2012, p. 84). Principal-agent theory is used in this case “to determine the objective responsibility in terms of relationships between those with the primary right to exercise authority (principals) and those charged with carrying out their wishes (agents)” (Terry, 2012, p. 84). Sappington (1991) identifies the central concern of this perspective as “how the principal can best motivate the agent to perform as the principal would prefer, taking into account the difficulties in monitoring the agent's activities” (Terry, 2012, p.
International institutions do more than just manage relations among pre-existing states with exogenously determined preferences; they help to define the identity of member states, thereby also helping to define their perceptions of self-interest (Porter and Webb, 2007). The OECD can be seen as an example of an identity-defining international organization. Its primary impact comes through efforts to develop and promote international norms for social and economic policy (Wolfe, 1993). It defines standards of appropriate behavior for states, which seek to identify themselves as modern, liberal, market-friendly, and efficient (March and Olsen, 1998: 961). This involves distinguishing member states from non-members, and defining the former as superior.
Objectivism and constructivism are popular ontological position towards social reality (Assali, 2014:72). The ontological position which will be adopted in this study is objectivism. Objectivism Objectivism is an ontological position that asserts that social phenomenon and their meanings have existence that is independent of social factors (Bryman, 2012:32; Bryman, Bell, Hirschsohn, Dos Sontos, Du Toit, Masenge, Van Aardt & Wagner, 2014:17). Researchers with this position will attempt to establish causes, effects, and explanations of LMS of academic staff. For the purposes of this study, an objective ontological positioning recognises the fact that academic staffs’ beliefs, values, and knowledge are socially constructed, and that they exist independent of the
