    The Complex Interactions between Cities and Nature2016In: Quality Innovation Prosperity, ISSN 1335-1745, E-ISSN 1338-984XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Purpose: Proximity to nature is highly valued by urbanites. They demonstrate higher willingness to pay for housing at locations near open and green spaces. But, nature in cities can generate negative externalities as well. The aim of this paper is to present the complex relationship between nature and cities and the possible negative influence of urban nature on property prices.

    Methodology/Approach: The data presented in this paper include open spaces, the presence of wild animals and residential property values in Haifa, Israel. These data were analyzed to uncover spatial regularities and basic statistical relationships.

    Findings: The results reveal the expected presence of dominant positive externalities related to proximity to open and green areas. However, in certain areas and under certain circumstances, the nuisances generated by the presence of wild animals in close proximity to housing are correlated with lower property prices.

    Research Limitation/implication: We demonstrate in this paper that that there is a complex relationship between nature and cities, albeit focusing our analysis on large mammals in cities only. Disentangling positive and negative externalities of urban nature is a challenging task. The paper presents an example of the potential difficulties that need to be dealt with in such analysis.

    Originality/Value of paper: Through the case study, we show that there are good reasons to believe that there are both positive and negative externalities of nature in cities. To our best knowledge, attempts to disentangle both types of effects using property values do not exist in the literature.

    Processes of Value Co-Creation at a Tourist Accommodation2018In: Quality Innovation Prosperity, ISSN 1335-1745, E-ISSN 1338-984X, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 36-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper aims to study how a pair of hosts for one bed and breakfast establishment and their guests create value for the visit by communicating and interacting with each other on the island of Gotland.

    Methodology/Approach: A case study was conducted on one single Bed and Breakfast (BnB) accommodation. An interview and a Questionnaire study were performed.

    Findings: The study shows that there are several processes involved in the co- creation of values between visitors and hosts. Co-creation processes begin already when visitors are planning their visits to the island. Their expectations are created while choosing their accommodation type, often done online on different websites. Pre-information about the chosen BnB accommodation contributes to visitors’ expectations and image of the object, which can be seen as a part of their identities. In the physical meeting with the accommodation and the hosts and other guests, the co-creation process is strengthened. There are processes of participation, communication, creation of meaning for the stay, processes of trust and responsibilities which all together create a common culture which in turn contributes to co-creation of values for both parties. These processes also take place between guests. The processes are furthermore dependent on meaning-making and sensemaking processes. This all together generate knowledge about the destination and the values that enhance the positive experience of the visits. It also creates knowledge for the hosts about how they can develop their service to achieve increased customer satisfaction. Finally, these skills can be valuable for the continued planning and development of the tourism industry.

    To Lead Change - To Work and Study with Creativity and Structure: A Course Design for Deeper Learning Outcomes within a Course in Quality Technology2019In: Quality Innovation Prosperity, ISSN 1335-1745, E-ISSN 1338-984X, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 25-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: In this paper a new course design as a case study is presented. The course was given at bachelor level at Uppsala university, campus Gotland, within the division of quality technology. The purpose of the case is to give students an opportunity to practice acquired theoretical knowledge by offering them the opportunity to create an organization of their dreams, working in small groups.

    Methodology/Approach: This paper builds upon a case study approach, combining a literature review, document studies over the performed course and evaluations over the course.

    Findings: The case study shows that course design can be an important inspiration and a bridge between theory and practice for the students. Course design seems to support students’ learning processes according to evaluations of the course. Course design offers benefits of the collective learning, especially for distance students. It increases independence, understanding of one’s mission and accountability for it. Students are given the opportunity to practice the theoretical knowledge in their education in a creative and inspiring way. Still, there are further demands and challenges left of improvement in the course design.

    Research Limitation/implication: The research limitation is that this study consists of only one course in Quality Technology.

    Originality/Value of paper: This study contributes to the discussion about learning at university level through a case study.
