Kolb's (1985) Learning Style Inventory and theories of learning preferences have stimulated much research and theory construction. A number of researchers have argued that, as students move through their college careers, their learning styles are likely to change significantly. This paper reports on the completion of a three-year study to assess the actual(More)
The Agile project management methodology has been widely used in recent years as a means to counter the dangers of traditional, front-end planning methods that often lead to downstream development pathologies. Although numerous authors have pointed to the advantages of Agile, with its emphasis on individuals and interactions over processes, customer(More)
In recent years, there has been a steady rise in the acceptance and use of GIS by a variety of organizations in accomplishing their tasks. From a technical perspective, data in electronic form are now far easier to exchange. GIS technology enables data integration across organizations (Campbell and Masser, 1991) and information sharing can stimulate(More)
Introduction Previous research provides only partial evidence about the trends in interorganizational development and sharing of geographic information systems (GIS) and databases, the obstacles and facilitators of interorganizational activities, and the benefits derived from the joint activities. Anecdotal evidence is provided primarily through conference(More)
The recent dramatic increase in direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs has important implications for the pharmaceutical industry, physicians, and patients. One goal of direct advertising is to increase patient awareness of specific brands of medications while hoping to promote a greater frequency in office visits, presumably to specifically(More)
15 Introduction In the United States, the Federal National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) initiative calls for the development of an " information highway " to connect the variety of spatial data producers and users, including government, private sector, and academic institutions (FGDC 1994). Initiatives on data-sharing mechanisms, infrastructure,(More)
Chapter One Introduction In late 1990 and early 199 1, a methodological framework was developed for testing technology transfer hypotheses within GIS operational environments. The paper reporting this work was titled "Case Study Research Methods for Geographic Information Systems" (Onsrud, Pinto, and Azad 1992) and drew upon concepts developed by Alan Lee(More)
A great deal of research has examined students' preferred learning styles as measured by Kolb's 1985 Learning Style Inventory, but little effort has been made to test the covariate effects of other individual psychological facets, such as creativity, on preferred learning style. For a sample of 84 college undergraduates, the relationship between learning(More)
This note is a reply to Ruble and Stout's 1992 critique of our 1991 study of changes in learning style over time. While some of their comments have merit, the remaining conclusions are that the dimension scores on the Learning Styles Inventory exhibit considerable stability over time and should be analyzed when assessing changes in learning style.
