Business & Law Education Research @ Deakin

BLER@D supports and promotes a scholarly approach to improve student learning outcomes in business and law education by: 

  • Building the capacity of BLER@D scholars to conduct evidence-based impactful Business & Law education research.
  • Disseminating research outcomes that evidence impact to academic stakeholders.
  • Disseminating teaching and learning tools that ‘make a difference’ to student learning, and to internal and external teaching staff.
  • Recognising and rewarding evidence-based, impactful business  & law education research outputs.
  • Establishing productive research partnerships both domestically and internationally, with a focus on AACSB and EQUIS accredited Business School partners and reputed Law School partners.
  • Promoting academic exchanges between partners to design and develop innovative curriculum and to develop scholarly research outputs.

*A scholarly approach is evidence-based, cognisant of existing literature, and makes a substantial contribution to that body of (peer-reviewed) literature.

Meetings

The first BER@D meeting was held in July 2016, with a follow-up in September 2016 and February 2017. BLER@D writing retreat will be held at Waurn Ponds from 19-21 November, 2018.

GCHE Mentors

BLER@D members are available to mentor FBL staff members undertaking the GCHE. We can assist with identifying Business Education research projects that can be completed as part of your course.

Ms Marina Kirstein - Exploring the emotional intelligence of a diverse cohort of South African

Ms Marina Kirstein, Senior Lecturer, University of Pretoria (a key DBS partner university)

Thursday 29 June 2017

Abstract

This presentation was based on a study which explored differences in EQ between accounting students of differing race, language and gender in a heterogeneous undergraduate professional education program. Understanding the differences in EQ between these demographic groups may assist instructors in differentiating their social emotional learning interventions to reach students from the different demographic groupings. Data was collected through the use of the Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale (WLEIS) and analysed by means of the Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests. Various statistically significant differences were identified in each of the four dimensions of EQ between students from different racial, language and gender groups. In addition, this study suggests that instructors may need to delve deeper than race, language or gender in identifying appropriate groups to target for specific SEL interventions. Instructors may need to consider within group differences such as specific race-gender or race-language groups in targeting their interventions.
