dialogue in select online courses. Journal of Management Education, 33, 196-218.
Dialogue is arguably one of the most significant elements of learning in higher education.
The premise of this article is that online instructors can creatively facilitate dialogue
for effectively teaching online management courses. In this article, the authors present
a dialogue-focused framework for addressing significant behavioral, structural, and
technological elements that involve the development and delivery of knowledge and
application use (KAU) online management course content. Specifically, the proposed
framework and propositions suggest how various antecedents and moderators influence
the use of dialogue resources, technology, and student engagement in KAU-type management
courses. Available hereContact: Jackie.Gilbert@mtsu.eduBoraiko, C., & Brinthaupt, T. M. (2010). Teaching a safety class with a hybrid format:
A case study. Journal of Safety Health and Environmental Research, 6(3).
In this paper, the authors collected evaluative data from a newly developed hybrid
course to demonstrate that it was an effective way to teach this content. Available hereContact: Carol.Boraiko@mtsu.edu Smith, C. F. (2010). Corrections in the classroom: A recruiting tool. Corrections Today, 72(5), 36-39.
In this paper, the author presents results from a student survey to the readers of
a journal for Corrections professionals. The focus of the article was on strategies
for teaching the topic of Corrections. Topics included student perceptions of the
field of Corrections as a profession. Available hereContact: Carter.Smith@mtsu.eduBrinthaupt, T. M. (2010). Development and implementation of an online careers seminar
in psychology. Teaching of Psychology, 37, 58-62.
In this article, the author described the development, implementation, and assessment
of the online course for psychology career advising. Advising courses have become
increasingly popular in psychology, and this paper was the first to describe how such
courses can be taught online. Available hereContact

health coaching. Academic Exchange Quarterly, 14(2), 66-71.
In this paper, the authors describe the use of a service-learning project to teach
health coaching during a medical nutrition therapy course. Students (N=16) served
as coaches for a 4-month program called Discovering Healthy Families (DHF). Evaluation
of the project indicated benefits for both students and DHF participants. The students'
knowledge of coaching was higher at the end of the program and DHF participants were
very satisfied with their coaches. Available here Contact: Lisa.Sheehan-Smith@mtsu.edu
