Faculty Colloquium: Naskar Shankar

April 17, 2024
4:00 pm
Dogwood Room, Slemp Student Center
Horizontal pay dispersion as social context for predicting employee performance outcomes associated with diagnostic-versus criterion-referenced performance feedback. Despite its recognized centrality as an organizational tool, there are decades of mixed findings relating to the employee performance benefits associated with different forms of performance feedback. The ambiguity present in the literature has been attributed to multiple factors, including feedback purpose and the context within which feedback occurs. Integrating these broad themes, a model is developed, expanding the breadth of relevant social context variables to include horizontal pay dispersion. Building from tournament theory, in a field experiment of 267 employees across 22 units, the results find improved performance from diagnostic feedback delivered under increasing pay dispersion; however, substantively different patterns emerge for criterion-referenced feedback. The current findings have implications for both performance feedback research and tournament theory.

Faculty Colloquium: Jan Fiala

April 25, 2024
4:00 pm
Dogwood Room, Slemp Student Center
Projectile Motion: More Geometry, More Physics Projectile motion is the first topic in an introductory physics course that can boggle the minds of students. It is important to start with basic observations and discussion much earlier in math, geology, or other science classes. In physics we work with units and in math we usually don't use any units. I would like to explore the idea of units and scale. In recent years, I have been trying to find more examples that might motivate the proper integration of physics into mathematical projects and vice versa.
