1. Ghosh, Kamalika. Personality Traits, Prosocial Knowledge, Charismatic Leadership Behavior, and Clinical Performance of Indian Medical Students.

Degree: MA, Social Sciences, 2016, Rice University

Abstract This study replicates and extends findings reported by Ghosh, Motowidlo, and Nath (2015) that Indian medical students’ prosocial knowledge is positively correlated with their clinical performance. It examines the antecedents of medical students’ charismatic leadership behavior and its contribution to their clinical performance. This study also investigates whether the strongest personality determinant of prosocial knowledge and charismatic leadership behavior is different in a high power distance culture (conscientiousness) than in a low power distance culture (agreeableness). In a sample of 343 Indian medical students, students’ prosocial knowledge positively correlated (.21, p <.01) with their clinical performance. Although Indian medical students’ (N = 96 – 109) charismatic leadership behavior failed to show significant association with their clinical performance (.07, NS) and prosocial knowledge (.18, NS), it positively correlates with agreeableness (.43, p <.01), and conscientiousness (.40, p <.01). Contrary to expectations, conscientiousness failed to show stronger association with knowledge and leadership constructs, than agreeableness in India’s high power distance culture which demonstrates agreeableness’ role as a global predictor of prosocial knowledge. Practical and theoretical contributions of this study are discussed with recommendations for future research. Advisors/Committee Members: Motowidlo, Stephan J.

2. Yuarata, Delma Ausan. Cultural influences on the oral communication strategies used by pre-service teachers and teacher educators: an investigation of English medium classrooms in Central Mindanao, the Philippines.

Degree: PhD, 2016, University of Newcastle

Research Doctorate - Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

This study investigates the oral communication strategies used by pre-service teachers and the oral instructional strategies used by teacher educators in English medium classrooms within the Philippines, a country characterised by a high-context and high power distance socio-cultural milieu. The government of the Philippines wants its citizens to develop communicative competence in English, considered essential in an era of Asian globalisation and modernisation. There have been few studies that have examined the way in which a high-context/high power distance culture affects the development of students’ oral communication in English. As such, this study is an innovative exploration of the communicative interactions between pre-service teachers and teacher educators in the Philippines. Data were gathered from pre-service teachers and teacher educators in three teacher education institutions located in Central Mindanao. The investigation used a mixed method approach that included surveys, focus group interviews, and classroom observations. The study investigated the following areas in particular: the oral communication strategies used by pre-service teachers; the oral instructional strategies used by teacher educators; the strategies considered helpful by pre-service teachers and teacher educators; the level of agreement between pre-service teachers and teacher educators on helpfulness of strategies; and links between communication strategies and the high- context/high power distance culture that characterizes the Philippines. Findings from the three sources of data show general agreement between pre-service teachers and teacher educators in terms of the types of communication strategies each use and in terms of the strategies they find useful. These strategies can be located within the framework of a high-context/high power distance culture. It is argued that many of these strategies do not facilitate oral communication, and that current approaches to classroom communication could be improved by adjusting the strategies used by both pre-service teachers and teacher educators. Consequently, a set of recommendations to enhance oral communication in English medium classes in teacher education institutions is put forward.

3. van Rensburg, Karel Jensen. Analysis of arcing faults on distribution lines for protection and monitoring.

Degree: 2003, Queensland University of Technology

This thesis describes an investigation into the influences of arcing and conductor deflection due to magnetic forces on the accuracy of fault locator algorithms in electrical distribution networks. The work also explores the possibilities of using the properties of an arc to identify two specific types of faults that may occur on an overhead distribution line. A new technique using the convolution operator is introduced for deriving differential equation algorithms. The first algorithm was derived by estimating the voltage as an array of impulse functions while the second algorithm was derived using a piecewise linear voltage signal. These algorithms were tested on a simulated single-phase circuit using a PI-model line. It was shown that the second algorithm gave identical results as the existing dynamic integration operator type algorithm. The first algorithm used a transformation to a three-phase circuit that did not require any matrix calculations as an equivalent sequence component circuit is utilised for a single-phase to ground fault. A simulated arc was used to test the influence of the non-linearity of an arc on the accuracy of this algorithm. The simulations showed that the variation in the resistance due to arcing causes large oscillations of the algorithm output and a 40th order mean filter was used to increase the accuracy and stability of the algorithm. The same tests were performed on a previously developed fault locator algorithm that includes a square-wave power frequency proximation of the fault arc. This algorithm gave more accurate and stable results even with large arc length variations. During phase-to-phase fault conditions, two opposing magnetic fields force the conductors outwards away from each other and this movement causes a change in the total inductance of the line. A three dimensional finite element line model based on standard wave equations but incorporating magnetic forces was used to evaluate this phenomenon. The results show that appreciable errors in the distance estimations can be expected especially on poorly tensioned di stribution lines.New techniques were also explored that are based on identification of the fault arc. Two methods were successfully tested on simulated networks to identify a breakingconductor. The methods are based on the rate of increase in arc length during the breaking of the conductor. The first method uses arc voltage increase as the basis of the detection while the second method make use of the increase in the non-linearity of the network resistance to identify a breaking conductor. An unsuccessful attempt was made to identifying conductor clashing caused by high winds: it was found that too many parameters influence the separation speed of the two conductors. No unique characteristic could be found to identify the conductor clashing using the speed of conductor separation. The existing algorithm was also used to estimate the voltage in a distribution network during a fault for power quality monitoring purposes.
