Faculty Members Publish Journal Articles and Poetry

Our distinguished faculty members are scholar-practitioners with years of industry experience and research acclaim. Nearly 90% of our professors hold PhDs or the highest degree in their discipline. They stay active in their fields and are passionate about bringing their expertise to the classroom. St. Edward’s University faculty members garner recognition near and far. Their latest journal articles and poetry accomplishments from the 2010-2011 academic year include:

Kelley Coblentz Bautch, associate professor of Religious Studies was asked to write an article on “internationalizing” one’s teaching through the use of videoconferencing. The article appears on the Society of Biblical Literature’s website and in its spring newsletter with the title “How Videoconferencing with International Scholars Can Enliven Your Classroom.” The article describes how Bautch has used videoconferencing in her teaching at St. Edward’s, inviting biblical scholars from the Philippines, South Africa and Columbia to speak to her students via Skype. The article also mentions the university’s mission in providing and deepening our students’ global perspectives.

Matt Clements, assistant professor of Economics, published the article “Low Quality as a Signal of High Quality" in Economics E-journal in March 2011. If a product has two dimensions of quality, one observable and one not, a firm can use observable quality as a signal of unobservable quality. The correlation between consumers’ valuation of high quality in each dimension is a key determinant of the feasibility of such signaling. A firm may use price alone as a signal, or price and quality together. Both signals tend to be used when the market is very uninformed, whereas price signaling alone tends to be used when the market is moderately informed. If high observable quality is inexpensive to provide, then it cannot signal high unobservable quality, and low observable quality is always an indication that unobservable quality is high.
