- Reframing Tourism Distribution - Activity Theory and Actor-Network Theory.M. T. Jorgensen - 2017 - Tourism Management 62.Tourism distribution has commonly been understood within a managerial framework, appearing as a static, linear and isolated process, happening in distribution channels. Through ontological, epistemological and methodological argumentation, this paper reveals that such an approach represents one specific enactment of tourism distribution that, on its own, does not sufficiently reflect the complex processes involved. A conceptual basis and framework for a new approach to analysis of tourism distribution is presented. This approach applies existing knowledge on tourism distribution to a framework (...)No categories
- Connections Between Media Technology and Leisure : Insights From Aristotle and Heidegger.Y. Choi & J. Dattilo - unknownPhilosophical inquiry that delves into the intriguing connections between media technology and leisure may assist us in understanding how we might consider the goodness of using media technology for leisure. Specifically, philosophical discourses of Aristotle and Heidegger can be used to help identify and clarify the roles of media technology and leisure. Therefore, in this paper, we provide a philosophical examination of connections between media technology and leisure by exploring perspectives and linkages of writings by Aristotle [2004. The Nicomachean ethics. (...)No categories
- Problem-Based Learning : Ancient Chinese Educational Philosophy Reflected in a Modern Educational Methodology.W. M. Lee, F. K. Y. Wong & E. S. B. Mok - unknownProblem-based learning has been widely adopted as a strategy by nurse educators all over the world. Many studies have been carried out to examine its process and outcomes. There are few studies discussing the relevance of PBL to students with different cultural background. This study reports the experiences of Chinese students in Hong Kong using PBL and explores if their experiences were compatible with the educational philosophy documented in traditional Chinese literature. The phenomenological approach was used in the treatment of (...)No categories
- What is the Evidence on Evidence-Based Nursing? An Epistemological Concern.P. French - unknownAim. This paper adopts an epistemological perspective in order to support the assertion that there is very little evidence to support the existence of evidence-based nursing as a distinct construct or process. Rationale. This analysis of concept meaning is based on the theory of symbolic interactionism. By adopting this theory the commonalities and inconsistencies in the use of evidence-based symbolism by nurses and other health care professionals can be used to evaluate the perceived meaning of the term. Methods. A frequency (...)No categories
- Marketing Modeling Reality and the Realities of Marketing Modeling.A. T. Coughlan, S. C. Choi, W. Chu, C. A. Ingene, S. Moorthy, V. Padmanabhan, J. S. Raju, R. da SobermanStaelin & Z. J. Zhang - unknownThis paper shows how analytic modeling research in the Marketing field is focused on answering questions of "How?" and "Why?" It describes the disciplines involved in analytic modeling; examines how the key criteria of parsimony and robustness help to define a good model; and discusses other goodness criteria, including appropriate use of analytic techniques, applicability of the model to institutionally rich, real-world problems, non-obvious results, generalizability, and ability to provide insight where other research techniques do not work. The paper defines (...)No categories
- Understanding Scientific Study Via Process Modeling.Luk Rwp - unknownThis paper argues that scientific studies distinguish themselves from other studies by a combination of their processes, their elements and the roles of these elements. This is supported by constructing a process model. An illustrative example based on Newtonian mechanics shows how scientific knowledge is structured according to the process model. To distinguish scientific studies from research and scientific research, two additional process models are built for such processes. We apply these process models: to argue that scientific progress should emphasize (...)No categories
