Team Roles at Work

The book also includes a Foreword to capture the impact of Meredith’s work in the field of management and team working. Further information accompanies the book on the Belbin website, www.belbin.com, including a summary of the nine Team Roles with their icons, descriptions, strengths, and allowable weaknesses.

Minding Ben

release date: Apr 12, 2011
Minding Ben
At sixteen, Grace Caton boards her first airplane, leaving behind the tropical papaya and guava trees of her small village in Trinidad for another island, this one with tall buildings, graceful parks, and all the books she can read. At least that's what Grace imagines. But from the moment she touches down, nothing goes as planned. The aunt who had promised to watch over her disappears, and Grace finds herself on her own. Grace stumbles into the colorful world of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, having been taken in hand, sort of, by a fellow islander, Sylvia. Here, she's surrounded by other immigrants also finding their way in America. From her Orthodox Jewish landlord, Jacob, to her wannabe Jamaican friend, Kathy, who feels that every outfit can be improved with a Bedazzler and a low-cut top, there's much to learn about her new city. Most challenging of all is figuring out her new employers, the Bruckners, an upper-middle-class family in Manhattan. The job is strange--Grace's duties range from taking daily nude photos of her pregnant boss (a shock to her, since she's never even seen her own mother naked) to dressing in a traditional maid's costume to serve Passover seder. But Grace loves four-year-old Ben, and she's intrigued by the alternately friendly and scheming nannies who spend their days in Union Square Park, and by their constant gossip about who's hired, who's fired, and who, scandalously, married her boss. As the seasons change, Grace discovers that the Bruckners have surprising secrets of their own, and her life becomes increasingly complicated and confusing. But opportunities appear in the most unexpected places, and Grace realizes that she's living in a city--and a world--where anything is possible.

Grace in the City

release date: Sep 18, 2012
Grace in the City
Grace Caton can't wait to leave behind her tiny village in Trinidad for New York City. With the right amount of wit, pluck, and determination--all of which Grace has in spades--she knows she'll conquer her new world. But from the moment she touches down, nothing goes as planned. For starters, the aunt who promised to watch over her never shows up at the airport, leaving Grace completely on her own. Fortunately, she stumbles into a vibrant immigrant community in Crown Heights and meets eccentric new friends, like her Orthodox Jewish landlord and fellow West Indian native Kathy, who feels any outfit can be improved with a Bedazzler. Next up is getting a job: working as a nanny for the Bruckners, an upper-middle-class family in Manhattan, proves to be her best--really, her only--option. Grace adores her four-year-old charge, Ben, but the Bruckner household is a minefield loaded with outrageous hours and jaw-dropping tasks. On top of that, she has to navigate the nanny hierarchy at Union Square Park, where secrets and gossip are traded faster than wet wipes. When Grace discovers that the Bruckners have some surprising secrets, her life becomes increasingly complicated and confusing. But friends and opportunities appear in the most unexpected places, and Grace realizes that she's living in a city--and a world--where anything is possible. "Revealing New York's melting pot at its most complicated, this interesting first novel is told from the perspective of someone who has been there and done that. Brown drew from her personal experience as a young immigrant nanny, and her story is fascinating, tender, and heartbreaking." --Library Journal "Brown is a new voice with much to offer." --Kirkus "[A] touching novel." --Publishers Weekly

Changing Demographics of Online Courses
Professors of online courses often consider the type of learning styles the students may have when designing online learning opportunities. This study explored different issues that may impact the learning styles of learners who self-select online courses. The "Grasha-Riechmann student learning style scales" was used to determine the learning styles of students in both online and on-campus courses. The preliminary results indicate little variance in the learning styles of students taking classes either in online or face-to-face classes. Convenience is an important consideration in selection of both types of classes. (Contains 3 tables.).
