Emergence of Research Networks: WPI Case

ELSI Symposium, 8 - 11 January 2019


Emergence of research and innovation activities in the chemical industry at the beginning of the twentieth century: the case of IG Farben and Du Pont
Doğan, Muhsin; Akçomak, İbrahim Semih; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2018)
In the 19th Century, after constant investments by governments and private sector to Chemical industry, Germany and the USA rised in terms of technological leadership, technological infrastructure and human capital for a long period. In these countries, there had been their own unique National Systems of Innovation. Thanks to this process, two giant chemical firms – IG Farben in Germany and DuPont in the US have come to existence. Each of these firms had successful innovation paths throughout their history....
Emergence of communication in RObots through Sensorimotor and Social Interaction (ROSSI)
Şahin, Erol(2011-10-31)
Starting from the assumption that cognition is embodied, the ROSSI project addresses the question how the possibility of communication between agents (e.g. humans and robots) is effected by differences in sensorimotor capacities.This is an important issue, given that robots are expected to become more common in non-structured environments, such as homes or hospitals. While there is a trend towards humanoid robots, it is clear that for the foreseeable future there will still be substantial differences in phy...
Adoption of online multimedia resources in a general chemistry laboratory course context: A case study
Tisoglu, Secil; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Kursun, Engin (2020-01-01)
Pre-laboratory practices and online pre-laboratory resources have been implemented in laboratory courses through various instructional approaches. This study seeks to elicit information about how online multimedia resources are embraced and used in the course system and which factors might affect the adoption of the resources in this context. This research was designed as a case study in order to explore the enablers and barriers of online multimedia resource adoption and associated problems in the system t...
Implementation of constructivist Life Sciences curriculum: a case study
Taneri, Pervin Oya; Engin Demir, Cennet; Department of Educational Sciences (2010)
The purpose of this qualitative case study is threefold: (1) to examine the implementation of current Life Sciences curriculum in a selected primary school from the perspectives of teachers, students and administrators; (2) to investigate the degree to which teachers’, students’ and administrators’ perceptions were embedded in the classroom practices; and (3) to identify whether the implementation of the curriculum was conducive to principles of constructivist pedagogy. An elementary school was chosen as a ...
Development of a mobile health acceptance model: an empirical investigation on physicians
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2016)
The study aims to investigate physicians’ intentions towards using mobile health (mHealth) applications. In order to understand and to reveal the influencing factors, a systematic method was followed. At the first phase, a literature research was conducted to identify studies in eHealth and mHealth domains. Literature research helped to reach to the studies about adoption and acceptance of health information systems by healthcare providers, employing behavioral acceptance theories. Following that, the conce...
