Nina Vrbanec, 2010, final seminar paper

Abstract: Revija Journal of consumer Research je ena najstarejših revij, ki združuje psihologijo in vedenje uporabnikov na trgu. Članki v reviji so namenjeni proučevanju odjemalcev ter kako oni dojemajo, sprejemajo in se vedejo na trgu. Prva revija je izšla leta 1974, v kateri je objavil svoj članek tudi eden prvih strokovnjakov na področju psihologije v marketingu, George Katona. V diplomski nalogi smo se pri analizi revije omejili na zadnjih pet let. Revija je izšla od junija 2004 do marca 2007 štirikrat na leto, in od 2007 leta do 2009 šestkrat, kar pomeni, da smo analizirali 24 revij. Bibliometrija je raziskovanje kvantitativnih vidikov produkcije in diseminacije uporabe zapisanih informacij. Z bibliometrijo pridobimo podatke o avtorjih na področju, ki ga raziskujemo. Prav tako pa dobimo vpogled o razvoju tem na tem področju, kar pomeni tudi razvoj določene znanosti. Članke smo analizirali glede števila člankov v eni izdaji, dolžine člankov, števila člankov z grafi. Prav tako smo naredili analizo avtorjev po spolu, ter na koncu analizirali prvi objavljen članek v prvem izvodu revije Journal of Consumer Research.

Sustainability engineering education
Peter Glavič, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: University sustainability education programmes in several European countries and the US have been compared to find common characteristics of the curricula in environmental science and engineering programmes. In particular, chemical engineering and applied chemistry departments have been focused here. Small, innovative European countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland) have been in fore front. In bigger countries (France, Great Britain, Spain, and the US) programmes from some of the top 100 universities in Europe and the Americas have been considered, three from each country and seven from the US. The frequency of the courses in various groups and typical course titles are shown within each group. Evolution from pollution prevention courses to sustainability subjects is observed. The most employed textbooks are also provided.

The sustainable university as a system: The case of the University of Maribor
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper deals with the university as an institution that responds to global problems, using creative, real-world problem solving, based on "learningby doing". Sustainability-oriented problem solving at the university require new approaches, based on interconnection and collaboration within a system (university) and with other systems (municipality, enterprises). The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to explore management changes and curricula improvements, based on the principles of communitarianism and improved ways of communication within the university.

What are the key elements of a sustainable university?
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: Nowadays, the principles of sustainable development are becoming increasingly important and universities are acting as agents in promoting these principles within society. In the future, universities will inevitably play crucial role in propagating these principles. This paper highlights important documents and discusses definitions of the term education for sustainable development. Elements, based on continuous feedback loop (Deming spiral) are discussed, in order to incorporate sustainability principles into university activities. The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to test the effectiveness of the proposed integration of sustainable development principles.

Another step towards a virtual university in construction IT
Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Nine universities started a project in autumn 2001 with the aim to develop an interuniversity postgraduate program in Construction Information Technology. The program is intended to be offered to students on most of the partner universities. On some of them it should start already in the academic year 2003/2004. The students will attend the subjects in different ways: face-to-face at home universities, face-to-face at partner universities, as well as by means of open and distant learning. The program has been developed with the purpose that students will not only get the best subjects the partneruniversities can offer in this specific area, but will also get the very important experience of other universities, countries and cultures, as well as of using IT in the learning and working process. Some partner universities, like University of Salford, already offer programmes in open distant learning mode. To extend the experiences and to try more, mostly videoconferencing technologies, TU Dresden and University of Maribor joint twoclasses of students in the early 2003 and run a 30 hour seminar on "Mobile Computing in Construction." Valuable observations have been taken, which were then used to conceptualize an ideal distant learning environment. The paper describes the background, the teaching experiment itself, the observations made, and the specification of an integral distant learning environment, as a framework of a future Virtual University in Construction IT.

Interuniversity postgraduate program in construction IT
Fátima Farinha, Ricardo Gonçalves, Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2003, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper reports on an interuniversity collaboration, funded by Erasmus Program, which develops a European Master course in Construction Information Technology (ITC) to complement the existing portfolio of postgraduate programsand to meet the growing demand for such skills in the construction industry all over the world. The curriculum is defined in a way that courses will be offered from different universities in Europe, as face-to-face education as well as long distance learning courses, which will give students the possibility not just to study in other countries, but also to tailor the program to their own needs and wishes. Students will not only get the best subjects but will also get the very important experience of different universities and cultures as well as of using information technology (IT) in the learning process. The paper concludes presenting and discussing ITC@EDU network, which main purpose is to support and link together teachers in the area of IT in construction. Therefore, the significance of the work done exceeds the postgraduate program, as it has become the linking point for the further development of ITC education globally.

Educational institution's image
Miha Marič, Jasmina Žnidaršič, Marko Ferjan, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: This article presents our findings about the factors influencing educational institution's image. Based on the literature review we composed a web questionnaire which was send to all current students at University of Maribor's Faculty of Organizational Studies. Based on our research results we found out that eight factors influence educational institution's image which have various amounts of influence on the educational institutions image. The factor with the most influence is the quality of professors and of their lectures and the second most important factor is the learning content. These two factors come before all of the others in the matter of influencing the educational institutions image. Our basic recommendation is to build on these factors starting with the most important ones first.

Extended technology acceptance model for SPSS acceptance among Slovenian students of social sciences
Alenka Brezavšček, Petra Šparl, Anja Žnidaršič, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: Background and Purpose - IBM SPSS Statistics is among the most widely used programs for statistical analysis in social sciences. Due to many practical values it is frequently used as a tool for teaching statistical concepts in many social science university programs. In our opinion, motivation to learn and to use SPSS during the studying process plays a significant role in building a positive attitude towards SPSS which influences its usage at the professional level after finishing study. Design/Methodology/Approach - The aim of this paper is the development of the model for analysing the acceptance of the SPSS among university students of social sciences. The model is based on the widely known Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). In addition to the traditional components of the TAM, six external variables were included. The model is tested using the web survey on the university students of social sciences from seven faculties at three Slovenian universities. Results - The evaluation of the questionnaire was performed. Descriptive statistics were calculated. The dependencies among the model components were studied and the significant dependencies were pointed out. Conclusion - The results of the empirical study prove that all external variables considered in the model are relevant, and directly influence both key components of the traditional TAM, ≫Perceived Usefulness≪ and ≫Perceived Ease of Use≪. Therefore, our model is useful to study the adoption and continuous utilization of SPSS among the students of social sciences. The obtained results are useful for educators, and can help them to improve the learning process.

Alcohol drinking among the students of the University of Maribor, Slovenia
Marko Kolšek, Zalika Klemenc-Ketiš, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: Background: Hazardous and harmful alcohol drinking is an important health, social and economic issue in Slovenia amongst all age groups. While drinking in Slovenia has been well researched amongst elementary and high school students, there is a lack of research on drinking amongst university students. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study among first- and fourth-year students of the University of Maribor, Slovenia, attending the mandatory preventive health check between October 2009 and May 2010. During this health check, they filled in a non-anonymous lifestyle questionnaire. AUDIT-C questionnaire on alcohol use and questions on smoking and illicit drug use were also included. Results: 3.130 students were included in the analysis, 1219 (38.9%) were males. There were 871 (27.8%) students that were screened as risky drinkers. The highest percentage of risky drinkers attended the Faculty for Wood Technology and the lowest the Faculty for Health Sciences. Students, recognized as healthier by the physicians, reported risky drinking significantly less often (p=0.015). Students with higher BMI reported risky drinking significantly more often (p=0.012). Variables, proved to be independently associated with the risky drinking in the multivariate analysis, were: bad health status (p=0.044), male sex (p<0.001), daily consumption of fried food (p=0.017), smoking (p<0.001), illicit drugs (p<0.001), attending the Faculty for Civil Engineering (p=0.006), not attending the Faculty for Health Sciences (p=0.002) Conclusions: While the prevalence of risky drinking among students in this study is high, a structured preventive programme should be implemented for students,which will include also illicit drug use and smoking.
