College of Professional Studies Students Shine at Posters in the Rotunda

Six UW-Green Bay undergraduates joined about 100 of their peers from across the UW System Wednesday, participating in the 10th annual “Posters in the Rotunda” undergraduate research event at the state Capitol in Madison.

This daylong event allows students and their faculty advisers to share their research findings on a variety of important and interesting topics with state legislators, leaders, UW alumni and other supporters.

The following UW-Green Bay students from the College of Professional studies made the trip. Here’s a bit more about them, their research and support:

Zhuxin “Zona” Fang, Jiaxing, Zhejiang, China, Secondary Mathematics Education major, will present “An International Approach to Examining the International Baccalaureate (IB) Mathematics Studies in the United States: Comparing a Topic in Statistics between IB and Chinese High School Mathematics Textbooks.” This research explores how IB programs may help U.S. students compete academically with students from other countries. Her faculty adviser is Assistant Prof. Susan Cooper.

Mai Chee Vang, Green Bay, Business Administration major, will present “Role of Cultural Congruence and Trust in Online Charitable Giving,” a study that compares two newly created website homepages that put images in a different order to manipulate the cultural congruence. Her faculty adviser is Assistant Prof. Gaurav Bansal.

Congratulations to our students and faculty advisors!

Accounting’s Associate Professor Doering – Lead Article in April’s Taxes-The Tax Magazine

Cofrin School of Business Associate Professor of Accounting and Business Law, James Doering, recently had his  research, “The Creditability of the U.K. Windfall Tax: Substance vs. Form”, published as the lead article in the April 2013 issue of Taxes-The Tax Magazine. Professor Doering’s article examines whether the United Kingdom’s Windfall Tas qualifies as a creditabel foreign tax under Code Sec. 901.   His research was supported in part from the UW-Green Bay Research Council’s Grants in Aid of Research.   Articles selected for publication in this monthly journal furnish pragmatic guidance for navigating a strategic course through the intricate landscape of tax rules and regulations. Articles written by top tax experts provide thorough, accurate analysis of current tax issues, trends and legislative developments.  Congratulations Professor Doering.

Bansal’s Business Statistics course awarded “Quality Matters” certification

Three popular UWGB courses have been awarded “Quality Matters” certification for the high quality of their course design. They are:

• Popular Music Since 1955, Prof. Michelle McQuade Dewhirst, Music
Business Statistics, Prof. Gaurav Bansal, Business Administration
• Perspectives on Values: The Contemporary World, Prof. Cristina Ortiz, HUS

McQuade Dewhirst, Bansal and Ortiz were participants in the Advanced Online Teaching Fellows, a program offered to experienced online faculty seeking to elevate their online teaching and course design. Facilitated by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) the program will be offered again in Summer 2013 with the aim of gaining QM recognition for an additional ten online courses.

The Quality Matters Program is a national, faculty-driven, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online courses. The QM rubric provides a set of standards for the design of online courses at the college level and looks for classes with quality objectives, materials and assessments that support and engage students with accessible technology.

Prof. Aeron Haynie, director of CATL, said of the recognition, “We are very pleased with this recognition of our faculty’s strong work providing high quality online teaching. Congratulations to Michelle, Gaurav and Cristina! Expect many more announcements as our faculty complete the review process.”

Expanding the team of Quality Matters reviewers
Additionally, the campus has begun to expand our team of QM trained reviewers. These include three new Master Reviewers – Heather Pokorsky, Dan Schrickel, and Pat Theyerl – and two Peer Reviewers — Profs. Angela Bauer and Gaurav Bansal. Becoming a reviewer requires a solid understanding of online course design and 20-30 hours of training. For more information on the Online Teaching Fellows program, visit the CATL website.
