Abstract

This paper discusses an evaluation study of WISDeM, an interactive Distance Learning Tool. It covers the evaluation rational, details of usability evaluation, designing the evaluation, the objectives and respondents, the study, the raison d’être for the questions asked and basic assumptions, what needed to be evaluated, the execution of the evaluation, its results and conclusions. The evaluation results indicated that Communication Preference and Learning Styles matching between a computer interface and the student user is likely to enhance his/her ability for memory rehearsal, learning and knowledge recall more effectively than without it.

Abstract

Purpose

The object of this research is the reconstruction of the existing legal response by European Union states to the phenomenon of immigration. It seeks to analyse the process of conferral of protection.

Design/methodology/approach

One main dimension is selected and discussed: the case law of the national courts. The study focuses on the legal status of immigrants resulting from the intervention of these national courts.

Findings

The research shows that although the courts have conferred an increasing protection on immigrants, this has not challenged the fundamental principle of the sovereignty of the states to decide, according to their discretionary prerogatives, which immigrants are allowed to enter and stay in their territories. Notwithstanding the differences in the general constitutional and legal structures, the research also shows that the courts of the three countries considered – France, Germany and Spain – have progressively moved towards converging solutions in protecting immigrants.

Originality/value

The research contributes to a better understanding of the different legal orders analysed.

Abstract

L'accord du 30 janvier 1948 et sa portée Dans l'article «A Tourist Currency?», paru ici même (cf. n° 1, 1948, pages 4 ss.), les accords touristiques passés le 30 janvier de cette année entre la Grande‐Bretagne et la Suisse ont été montrés comme un exemple de réglementation bilatérale du tourisme dans des conditions de paiement défavorables. De fait, il y a dans la conclusion de ces accords une valeur de principe. Quelle était la situation auparavant? Par suite de l'aggravation de son marché de devises, la Grande‐Bretagne avait été obligée, le 1er octobre 1947, de cesser d'accorder de l'argent pour des voyages d'agrément en Suisse. Cet état de choses ne pouvait durer pour aucune des deux parties. Il fallait trouver une solution. D'emblée, il apparaissait impossible de songer à une compensation du trafic touristique de Grande‐Bretagne en Suisse par un mouvement inverse de personnes. La Suisse n'avait que peu de touristes pour l'Angleterre. En revanche, en tant que pays du tourisme par excellence, il lui fallait avoir des hôtes britanniques. Par ailleurs, il n'était pas question pour la Grande‐Bretagne, étant donné sa situation financière difficile, de mettre à la disposition du tourisme vers la Suisse une quantité illimitée de devises, voire de l'or. Comment allait‐on surmonter ces difficultés?

Abstract

This most complicated of all periodicals was first published as the Bulletin scientifique [A], ten volumes of which were issued from 1836 to 1842. It was then divided into two parts, the Bulletin de la classe historico‐philologique [B] and the Bulletin de la classe physico‐mathématique [C]; both were published from 1842 to 1859, the former in sixteen volumes, the latter in seventeen. The two sections were then re‐united as the Bulletin [D], thirty‐six volumes of which appeared in 1859–94(?). The journal was then given a Russian title, . . . [E] and called the fifth series; twenty‐five volumes appeared in this form in 1894 to 1906. A sixth series [F], under the same title with several secondary variations, in twenty‐one volumes, was issued in 1907 to 1927. The seventh series was again divided into two parts, humanistic [G] and scientific [H]; the former appeared from 1928 to 1930, in three unnumbered volumes, the latter from 1928 to 1935 in eight unnumbered volumes. The humanistic series then ceased, but the scientific one was subdivided into four parts, devoted to biology [I], geology [J], chemistry [K], and physics [L]; these began publication in 1936 and are in progress, except the part devoted to chemistry, which was merged in another journal published by the Academy. In the following year (1937) other sub‐sections were added, devoted to mathematics [M] and to geography and geophysics [N]. In the meanwhile a new main class devoted to social sciences [O] had been added in 1931 to the humanistic and the scientific. Later further new classes were created, a chemical one [P] in 1940, a literary and linguistic one [Q] in 1940, and a technological one [R] in 1937; these are all in progress.

Abstract

La Revue de Tourisme a déjà consacré tout un numéro à ce sujet (n° 3/1950). Si nous y revenons, c'est surtout pour les motifs suivants: D'abord, le sujet en soi est à peu près inépuisable. Ensuite, il s'agit d'en donner maintenant une vue d'ensemble et d'en examiner d'autres aspects. Enfin, l'occasion nous en est directement fournie par la publication récente de l'ouvrage cité ci‐après de M. J. G. Ramaker (Tourisme et transports) et par l'exposé que, sous le même titre, l'auteur de ces lignes a fait le 11 février 1955 dans un cours d'instruction organisé par la Swissair à Zurich pour son personnel, avec le concours de l'Ecole suisse des hautes études économiques et administratives de Saint‐Gall.

Abstract

It is a well established fact that the entry of women into higher‐level professional occupations has not resulted in their equal distribution within these occupations. Indeed, the emergence and persistence of horizontal and vertical gender segregation within the professions has been at the heart of the development of a range of alternative theoretical perspectives on both the “feminisation process” and the future of the “professions”more generally. Through an in‐depth comparative analysis of the recent changes in the organisation and administration of the medical profession in Britain and France, this paper draws upon statistical data and biographical interviews with male and female general practitioners (GPs) in both countries in order to discuss and review a variety of approaches that have been adopted to explain and analyse the “eminisation” process of higher‐level professions. Our conclusions review the theoretical debates in the light of the evidence we have presented. It is argued that, despite important elements of continuity in respect of gendered occupational structuring in both countries, national variations in both professional and domestic gendered architectures lead to different outcomes as far as the extent and patterns of internal occupational segregation are concerned. Both female and male doctors are currently seeking – with some effect – to resist thepressures of medicine on family life.

Abstract

In attempting an examination of the contractual and normative concepts of the collective agreement, some ideas are tentatively put forward in the pages which follow hoping that they will stimulate the reader's mind and open areas for further discussion.
