    Student Management And Human Intelligence Skills Enhanced Through Community Service
    (Clute Institute, 2012-09-20) Wilson, Stefanie D.
    Based on years of human intelligence research conducted by Howard Gardner and results from a quantitative research study supporting Gardners research collected from a sample of 205 faculty within the United States, the researcher examined students that are actively engaged in community service experiences and their approaches to reframing their intelligences and enhancing their unique learning, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. Students who reach beyond the class or virtual rooms of academia and become actively involved in community service organizations gain organizational experiences that sharpen their management and human intelligence skills to equip them with operating in a competitive world of constant organizational change.

    Leading Edge Online Classroom Practices: Influenced by the Global COVID Pandemic
    (Book Publisher International, 2020-09) Wilson, Stefanie D.
    During the first quarter of 2020, Corona Virus (also known as COVID-19), a virus that spread rapidly throughout the globe, began to migrate from country to country. The impact of COVID-19 required swift changes implemented by individuals and organizations such as state and federal government entities, small businesses to large conglomerates, and educational systems at all levels from elementary schools to universities to survive and combat the virus.

    Thus, the new normal for many educators at universities around the globe required revamping their course curriculum and delivery as migrating from in-class courses to online courses has become necessary, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on research studies of human intelligence also known as multiple intelligences by cognitive scientist Howard Gardner, and secondary sources focused on functions of management, the art and science of using technology and multiple intelligence practices to deliver leading edge online classroom education during the COVID-19 pandemic is examined.

    Furthermore, this empirical study through a lens of instructing and observing as a teacher and administrator, over 80 online courses comprised of learners seeking undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees during 18 years at public and private universities, explores a myriad of implications resulting from using technologies to deliver stellar online classroom education to include: (a) human psychology, (b) medium, (c) information, and (d) instructional design.

    The article concludes with a perspective on the challenges and opportunities of using technologies to deliver leading edge online classroom education. The content can be used to assist current and future educators with developing or strengthening the online classroom using technologies and incorporating multiple intelligence practices for a more fulfilling classroom experience.

    Intelligence And Diversity: A Western And Eastern View From A Global Paradigm
    (Clute Institute, 2008-06) Wilson, Stefanie D. ; Mujtaba, Bahaudin G.
    Intelligence, whether hereditary or acquired, has been the subject of discussion since the beginning of time. Multiple intelligences have been in existence for thousands of years and the use of these various capabilities can greatly impact a persons thinking, feelings, and habits. Based upon previous studies and experiences on multiple intelligences, this paper attempts to shed light on the topic from a global perspective to clarify the stereotypes regarding intelligence which are attached to people of different countries, cultures, and genders. Research has identified a relationship between the domains of multiple intelligences such as interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic intelligences, leadership, and demographic characteristics such as, age, gender and ethnicity among various populations and professions. Using literature and secondary sources, the authors provide a view of multiple intelligences from a global perspective along with a theoretical framework. Studies seem to indicate that despite the existing stereotypes people of all backgrounds and cultures have similar levels of intelligences. The paper concludes by offering a discussion on the skills of social intelligence as well as suggestions on respecting and understanding each others differences. The literature and content can be useful for clarifying stereotypes, management selection, as well as training and development in todays global corporations that are competing in a highly complex world.

    A Study Of Multiple Intelligences And Higher Education Faculty In The United States
    (Clute Institute, 2007-07-01) Wilson, Stefanie D.
    This quantitative research study discovered and identified the degree of relationships between the domains of multiple intelligences: (a) interpersonal, (b) intrapersonal, and (c) linguistic intelligences, and (d) leadership and demographic characteristics such as, (a) age, (b) gender and (c) ethnicity among higher education faculty. Using a survey instrument, primary data was collected from a sample of 205 faculty members within the United States. Furthermore, the researcher examined and analyzed certain aspects of the field of leadership, and the impact Gardner’s multiple intelligences may or may not have on leadership selection, training and development based on the results obtained. This paper provides a summary of the study and its results along with possible implications and recommendations for administrators, managers and leaders in academia.

    The Relationship Between Multiple Intelligences, Culture And Diversity
    ( 2007-08-01) Wilson, Stefanie D. ; Mujtaba, Bahaudin G.
    The topic of intelligence, whether hereditary or acquired, has been the subject of discussion since the beginning of time and will probably keep researchers and authors talking for many years to come. However, one statement needs to be clarified that studies seem to indicate that people of all backgrounds and cultures have similar capacities of intelligences. Despite this fact, there seems to be widespread discrimination and stereotypes in today's workplace. Effective management and leadership require that our workplaces are free of biases so everyone can work synergistically. The paper provides some reflections on multiple intelligences, culture and diversity management and concludes by offering a discussion of social and emotional intelligences for diversity management as well as suggestions for tolerating, respecting and understanding each other's differences.
