Robert Lion (Business) published "A study of performance support in higher education" in Performance Improvement Quarterly. The abstract reads as follows: "During a time when higher
education institutions are facing increasing budget cuts, the ability to recruit
and retain students is extremely important. For some institutions, web-based
courses have been viewed as a way to attract new students, as well as to provide
more convenient education options for students currently enrolled. While the
occurrence of e-learning has continued to increase, concerns with the quality
and availability of faculty support to design and deliver such programs still
exist. This study surveyed chief academic affairs officers to gather information
about institutional priorities and practices that relate to web-based learning
with the goal of identifying opportunities to further improve instructional
performance. The findings include evidence that institutions are currently
offering a variety of means of instructional supports; however, there are
specific areas where institutions are consistently delinquent."

of Appraisal and Classification of Archival Records" in The American Archivist. The article reviews the reconfiguration of archival appraisal and
classification at NMU and argues in favor of
Institutional Functional Analysis as the most efficient and effective way to
conduct appraisal and classification.
