Analyzing Factors Of Rural Business Success by Thea Hempel
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The purpose of this study is to investigate factors relevant to business success in a small, rural Northwestern Wisconsin community and determine what influences are behind their ability to succeed. The study looks to provide a basis for a Project Based Learning format that could be used at the high school or technical college level, allowing students to investigate their own community and explore career options. In addition, as a young person researches and understands their own community, the impetus would be a greater appreciation for their immediate surroundings along with the entrepreneurial energy needed to sustain a successful business lacking urban resources. The success of such businesses is imperative to the survival of such municipalities and supports the wellbeing of its residents. The study goes further to provide general feedback to the Chambers of Commerce that participate in such a study about the specific and unique aspects that create success in a defined geographical area through simple survey techniques.

Rating
0.0 stars

In this problem-based learning/role playing case, students apply their knowledge of the biology of HIV/AIDS and antiretroviral therapy to developing foreign aid policy for the HIV/AIDS crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. The case was created for a non-majors course in human biology taken mostly by juniors or seniors. It has also been used in a microbiology course for pre-nursing students and in an upper-level microbiology course for biology majors.

A great article from University of Stevens Point on how library instruction aides graduation rates for students. This is being placed in the Wiselearn resources as Community Partnerships as I partner with this librarian for instructional purposes for all our University bound seniors. The study found that students who had direct instruction on how to use the library, stayed in school longer at the post-secondary level, and had a higher graduation rate than their peers who did not enroll in the Library instructional class.

Since the late 1980s through the early 2000s social media and texting have started booming and becoming well known communication avenues around the world. Every year since these platforms have continued to gain popularity and is one of the most common ways to communicate today. This has played a role in the rise of unprofessional communication within the business world. This article examines the past and new data on if social media and texting are to blame for the gap of unprofessional communication in the workplace, focusing mainly on written communication. In addition, a project-based learning project is summarized to help high school students, who are taking business courses for college credit, understand the importance of having professional communication within a business setting, while creating a professional email and sharing their findings on why professional communication is important with their classmates throughout the school.

A Family in Need: In-Class Case Study on Cancer Genetics
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

“A Family in Need” was designed as an in-class problem-based learning activity for students to learn about several innovative medical applications of molecular biology. Students assume the role of a second-year medical student assigned to work with a pediatric oncologist who has just biopsied a tumor-like growth in the adrenal gland of her 17-year-old patient, Lee F. After taking Lee’s family history and performing a pedigree analysis, students review clinical and genetic characteristics of several syndromes associated with adrenal cancer. Students then explore various diagnostic and biomedical research techniques such as PCR, DNA sequencing, and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. The case concludes with a consideration of how to treat Lee’s condition with the help of gene cloning and the potential of gene therapy. Although originally written for an upper-level college genetics course, the case could also be adapted for an introductory molecular/cellular biology course, a non-majors biology course, or a professional school medical genetics course.

Using problem-based learning and role-playing, students analyze the geological origins of the Galapagos Islands, their colonization, species formation, and threats to their biodiversity in this story of a graduate student caught between local fishermen and government officials fighting for control of the islands' natural resources. The case was designed for an introductory biology course where the focus is on evolution. It would also be appropriate for courses in ecology, conservation biology, and natural resources management.

A Green Light for CFLs?
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this problem-based learning case, three housemates in an environmentally-themed college house debate the pros and cons of compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) over incandescent lamps. The students raise issues of the cost difference between the lamps (both in the short and long term), energy use and greenhouse gas production in the manufacture and use of the lamps, and the mercury content in CFLs and the risks that poses to people and the environment. Students are asked to identify the information needed to evaluate the choice between the two lamp types, and then use a published life-cycle analysis to find and evaluate that information. To conclude, they make a decision and argue for it using quantitative evidence and reasoning. The case was developed for an intermediate-level course designed to help environmental studies students understand the role of scientific information and scientific thinking in resolving complex environmental problems.
