Prof. Crawford’s Significant Institutional Contribution to:

University of Wolverhampton Business School, and

University of Greenwich Business School

 

Significant Institutional Contribution:

University of Wolverhampton Business School:

 

His roles within the University of Wolverhampton Business School incorporated:

Doctoral Research Supervisor.

Head of Human Resource Management;

Head of Organisational Behaviour;

Module Leader;

Postgraduate Research Supervisor;

Undergraduate Research Supervisor;

In his capacity as Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) of Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, he made the following Significant Contributions:

Enhanced the People Management Course, editing the Inhouse Course Book, published by the Courseware Development Unit. It became the required text, that all students studying the module were required to purchase. People Management grew in popularity and was a Core Module, in most Schools within the University, including:

Wolverhampton Business School,

Wolverhampton School of Art

School of Humanities

School of Sciences

University of Wolverhampton Law School

Conducted a series of Empirical Research, from which he produced several articles. In one academic year, He presented thirteen (13) different Papers at thirteen (13) International Conferences, leading to Published Conference Proceedings and Refereed Journal Articles. His Empirical Research Dissemination contributed greatly to the University’s International Popularity, improving its HFCE Rating and Times Higher Education Rank.

He boosted Student Recruitment, by:

The Creation of Videos about the University and the Business School, Individual Programmes and Modules, packed with interviews with, and comments, from, lecturers, current and past students;

Reorganising Open Days, to facilitate the use of the pre-recorded videos with comments from lecturers and students, regarding modules and courses;

Staging of Road Shows, in different counties and countries, utilising the video-resources that he previously created, along with pre-printed booklets;

Visiting schools and colleges, to provide prospective students with taster sessions of the courses that they were likely to study at our university;

Positioning a panel of lecturers and students who addressed questions from prospective students, in real-time, regarding their chosen courses and programmes.

He enhanced his colleagues’ teaching and research capability by:

Providing them and external colleges with PowerPoint Presentations, for their lectures;

Developing Lecture Guide for all areas;

Developing Seminar Activities, for each topic in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management;

Holding Standardisation Meetings, prior to their marking of essays and examinations;

Moderate Assignment and Examination Marks;

Helping them to construct Multiple-Choice Questions;

Designing several Banks of Multiple-Choice Examinations;

Helping them to develop and utilise Detailed Objective Marking Schemes, for use with assignments, examinations and dissertations;

Supporting them in their Research-Specific Professional Development. His input was particularly important for them because the Dean had established an ultimatum for all pre-existing staff, with undergraduate qualifications and below, to gain a Postgraduate Degree. Several of them, who made efforts to comply with the Dean’s stipulation, had problems with their dissertation. While his  Research Methods Classes were open to them, they were intimidated to attend them, with the students whom they also taught. In their support, he wrote a series of articles on Research Methods, that he shared with them, as well as with his students. He also gave them some relevant coaching. They succeeded in completing and submitting their dissertations, some receiving their Awards just before the expiration of the deadline that the Dean had established.

Helping some to develop proposals for their Doctoral Research;

Provided them with needed guidance in the students’ Dissertation Supervision. This measure incorporated the use of annotations and the provision of guidance and written comments to students;

Contributing to Research Seminars, for the benefit of those with limited research exposure.

 

Significant Institutional Contribution:

University of Greenwich Business School

 

In the University of Greenwich Business School, he was a Programme Leader, Personal Tutor, Head of Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, as well as Undergraduate and Postgraduate Research Supervisor. He was also expected to deliver Conference Papers and submit Journal Articles. Most of his colleagues, who were not research-active had a heavy teaching load and script-marking schedule. Marking had to be done within a narrow window, to facilitate external marking and Examination Boards.

 

At the end of each Semester, most lecturers were locked away in a Hall, where they marked and moderated scripts, from within the University and its Affiliate Colleges. He resolved their most pressing problems, those of preparing and delivering lectures, conducting seminars, and marking examination scripts, by:

Providing his colleagues and external colleges with PowerPoint Presentations, for their lectures, accompanied by Lecturer Guide and Seminar Activities, for Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management;

Teaching them to develop ‘Objective marking Schemes’;

Helping them to construct Multiple-Choice Questions;

Designing Banks of Multiple-Choice Examinations;

Designing a Computerised Answer Sheet;

Working with his Information and Communication Technologies’ Colleagues to develop a program that was capable of perfecting the following:

Read the Computerised Answer-Sheets;

Record correct responses;

Calculate the marks;

Enter the marks on individual student’s profile.

His colleagues, who observed that ‘life at the Business School had never been more pleasant, greatly appreciated his effort. They were highly motivated, translating in their improved lecture quality, greater student-interaction and enhanced overall results. As are exemplified, below, his Institutional Contribution, also included students.

 

When he assumed the Combined Honours’ Programme Leadership, at the University of Greenwich, there was a high failure rate among first-year Combined Honours Students, consequent to their choice of inappropriate courses. The problem was not uncovered until Semester 2, when it was normally too late to change courses. This issue is exemplified by those who studied a half programme in Computing, with Information Systems, but who had little Mathematical Aptitude. Because the problem was detected only towards the end of the Second Semester (Year 1), they faced failure and resit, which, in most cases, also resulted in failure.

 

In an effort to reduce the frustration among students and improve our retention, and eventual pass rate, in that year, he worked with other Programme Leaders and Personal Tutors to change their problematic half programmes. Lecturers agreed to provide additional support for them to sit some modules during that Semester, while he championed their cause, at the subsequent Examination Board, to enable them to carry over any failure to Year 2. We arranged their Years 1 and 2 Timetables, avoiding clashes. They all succeeded, in both years, progressing to Year 3, several achieving 1st Class and 2.1 Award, on Graduation.

 

Following our unfortunate experience, detailed above, he worked with his colleagues, to provide clear guidance to all students, particularly those of Combined Honours, regarding the changing expectations of their courses. We also instituted a Report System, wherein Module Leaders provided frequent feedback to Programme Leaders and Personal Tutors, on the progress of their students, prior to their End of Semester Examinations. This measure facilitated their provision of the necessary support, to students, where necessary, thereby drastically increasing their success rate.

 

Because he developed his colleagues to be more self-reliant, they, eventually, demanded less of his time, thereby allowing me to devote much of his effort to Research, Research Training, Conference Attendance and Journal Publications. His overall support for his colleagues and students greatly enhanced the University’s HEFCE Rating, and ‘Times Higher Education (THE) Rank’.
