Dr. Joni Adkins, assistant professor of computer science and information systems at Northwest Missouri State University, was recognized with a meritorious paper award during the Information Systems Educators Conference Nov. 9 in San Antonio, Texas.

Adkins received the award for her paper, titled “Relevance of Student Resources in a Flipped MIS Classroom.” The paper reported about a study to determine the role that recorded lectures, lecture notes and reading text plays in student quiz scores.

The conference, known as ISECON, is the largest continuously running conference for information systems educators. Peer-reviewed accepted papers are published in the conference proceedings and award-winning papers are published in the Information Systems Education Journal. The top 15 percent of papers submitted receive outstanding paper recognition.

During the same weekend, Adkins attended the Delta Mu Delta Centennial Conference in San Antonio and was elected secretary of the business administration honor society’s national board. Adkins has served on the board for the last five years as the Region 5 representative. She also advises Northwest’s chapter of Delta Mu Delta.

Adkins joined the Northwest faculty in 1998 and teaches courses including Information Technology Management, Advanced Decision Support Systems, E-commerce and Data Management, Management Information Systems, and Systems Analysis and Design.
