  • Effectiveness of Online Dance Teaching in College Dance Majors: Case of
           Jinjiang College of Sichuan University

    • Authors: Peili Yin, Chai Ching Tan
      Pages: 1883 - 1907
      Abstract: Online is a popular media or pedagogical approach in schools these days, and dancing courses are no exception. Empirical research about the perceptions of students towards online dancing classes is rare. As a result, the goal of this study was to develop a model that explains students’ continuing support for online dance classes: based on the three stages of learning (pre-class preparation, in-class learning, and post-class revision) as a predictive base for student satisfaction, following the theory of planned behavior model. The comparative and parallel plots demonstrate considerable changes in perceptions between online and traditional dance learning phases, which have significant consequences. Furthermore, to confirm the suggested model guided by the theory of planned behavior, this work used structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis. Specifically, this study discovered that the quality of online dancing learning is the weakest link during the learning stage, after-class revisions and feedback have received favorable comparative responses compared to traditional online dancing learning, which has less revision demand; and the traditional dancing learning mode demonstrates the weakest link in the after-class stage, relating to revision materials provision. Similarly, the traditional learning approach has demonstrated some laxity in terms of pre-class preparation compared to online, which provides more extensive preparation by its very nature. The most significant contributions are twofold, first, satisfaction has been shown to be an important driver in influencing the attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control of the students towards the online dance teaching mode, and thus, secondly, this study contributes to the theory of planned behavior from the role of satisfaction. For this study, the theory of planned behavior culminates in students showing continuing support for online dance teaching, which infers and reflects the effectiveness of the pedagogical interventions.

  • Sustainability Key Performance Indicators for Thailand’s Upstream
           Oil and Gas Industry

    • Authors: Chatrudee Atsavakovith, Kamonchanok Suthiwartnarueput, Pongsa Pornchaiwiseskul
      Pages: 1964 - 1989
      Abstract: This article aimed to study and propose key performance indicators and sustainability models for Thailand's upstream oil and gas industry. This propose is based on a literature review and a survey of academicians and industry experts to achieve sustainable operations. The analytical hierarchy process adopted prioritizes indicators based on triple bottom line aspects. The oil and gas exploration and production industry is one of the most important for driving a nation’s economy. Additional income is generated through royalty payments, special remuneration benefits, petroleum income tax, and revenues from joint development. However, the business carries high risk, including the uncertainty of unproven geological reserves; high cost of production; high intervention and maintenance costs; dependency of production capability on the weather; price fluctuations; and cost of treatment of waste and spills. Therefore, the industry makes efforts to be more sustainable by causing less harm to the environment and society while making profits, building relationships with partners and investors, and enhancing its competitive advantage for long-term benefits to the bottom line. Even in times of low energy demand, the momentum and intensity to measure sustainability in the upstream oil and gas industry are maintained. As we move towards a more sustainable future, the upstream oil and gas sector should be considered a sustainable indicator to verify overall performance and measurable. Moreover, the oil and gas industries in Thailand's upstream sector are increasingly challenged to maintain business integrity. To ensure national energy security, the proposed sustainability KPIs and sustainability model could be used as guidance.

           Evidence from Companies Listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand

    • Authors: Supattra Apichaimongkol, Sannudee Selaratana, Poomthan Rangkakulnuwat
      Pages: 1990 - 2008
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to explore the influences of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility disclosure, and intellectual capital disclosure on firm value of companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand with 896 observations during the years 2018 and 2019. Tobin’s Q ratio was used for the measurement of firm value variables. The corporate governance variables consisted of corporate governance score, major shareholder ratio, number of meetings of the board of directors, and directors’ remuneration. Disclosure variables were measured using content analysis with 5 score levels (minimum 0=no disclosure, maximum 4=disclosure of text; monetary and non-monetary). The corporate social responsibility disclosure variable consisted of 43 indicators covering 4 areas, which were: environment, community, workplace, and marketplace. The intellectual capital disclosure variable consisted of 32 indicators covering 6 areas, which were: employees, information technology, processes, research and development, customers, and strategy. Control variables include firm size, firm age, financial leverage, dividend policy, investment opportunity, productivity of the firm and industry sector. In terms of hypothesis testing, multiple linear regression was applied. The findings revealed that corporate governance and intellectual capital disclosure significantly and positively impacted firm value. In addition, control variables that significantly impacted firm value consisted of investment opportunity, productivity of the firm, firm age, and financial leverage. A suggestion for future research is to extend the period of study because the measurement of efficiency and effectiveness of corporate social responsibility disclosure might take a long period of time.

  • Transferring the Social Missions to Local Government Organization:
           Conditions, Obstacles, and Future Trends

    • Authors: Wanwipha Tailangka, Panawan Premsri, Watinee Wongsaros, Phasakorn Dokchan
      Pages: 2009 - 2023
      Abstract: The purpose of this article was to study general information on the transfer of social missions. Track progress and obstacles caused by the process of transferring and presenting guidelines for social missions in the future. It was found that social missions transferred to local government organizations have 11 government departments in 6 ministries and 15 missions. The reason why social missions have slowed down is because it is a sensitive mission that directly impacts on people's livelihoods. While using the operating principle of availability of volunteers, local government organizations have to pass assessment conditions with a large number of indicators. Therefore, I propose: 1) The central administration has changed its role to be a supporter and reducing the constraints on budget allocation for social missions. 2) In current local management, the executives can't perform independently, so they should reduce mission duplication between provincial administration and local administration. 3) Once the locals get authorities, they must have its own action plans to transfer each individual mission. In order to visualize the operation before the acceptance of mission transfer. 4) True fiscal independence will result in effective and timely management. And 5) To generate participation from the citizens, the business sector and civil society will help to promote sustainability in local development

  • Investigating the Relationship Between Corporate Social Responsibility and
           Innovation

    • Authors: Kanokkarn Tevapitak Cooke
      Pages: 2041 - 2059
      Abstract: This article aimed to investigate the relationship between corporate social responsibility practices and innovation performance by reviewing the literature on these topics. This article reviewed thirty-five papers and analyzed them according to the research stream. The research streams were classified into: (1) conceptual papers, (2) literature reviews of papers, and (3) research papers. This article also grouped them into four main groups according to the nature of the relationship between CSR and innovation: (1) a direct relationship between CSR and innovation; (2) an indirect relationship between CSR and innovation; (3) no relationship between CSR and innovation; and (4) diverse relationships between CSR and innovation. The indirect relationship presents both CSR and innovation as (1) a representative of other variables, (2) a moderator or mediator between CSR/innovation and other independent variables, such as growth, performance, and sustainability, and (3) a controlled variable. The classification of research articles provides a clear picture of the relationship between CSR and innovation, which is more complicated than how the linear positive relationship of CSR influences innovation.
