Reality is also the major concept that is focused in this philosophy (Flyvbjerg et al., 2012). Based on the research philosophies’ implications and the hypothesis of the research, an interpretivism philosophy will be used. The reason is that this will be comparing the observations and results of new data with previous trends independently. Furthermore, exploration of social authenticity might be achieved by using interpretivism research philosophy, as the topic is subjective. On the other hand, alternative philosophies are remarkably quantifiable and literature extensive, which makes a study general.
The method of gaming was implemented into the project because evidence-based- practice literature supports it as a dynamic learning process to improve students learning and enhance test scores. According to Robinson (2014), stipulates using gaming in the classroom rather than question and answer is productive for students. Furthermore, gaming enhances students test score and engagement. Students will be evaluated by providing five gaming questions on catheter insertion, removal, and care. Students worked in small groups collaborate to answer questions related to catheter insertion, extraction, and maintenance.
1. Introduction This paper examines the role of grounded theory in social sciences in relations to case studies for a qualitative research study specifically, on ways how grounded theory is created and used in case studies to build a theory. Using Strauss and Corbin’s 1998 basics of qualitative research called Basics of Qualitative Research - techniques and procedures for developing grounded theory and Yin’s 2014 fifth edition also called case study research as the main references for this essay. Both of these books are crucial and uniquely guide novice researchers in their process to conduct research in social sciences. Research Design and Methods The use of these books is not necessarily to summarize them but rather to stress the points
Hypotheses stated by earlier researcher may be studied again and their worthiness will be evaluated as a basis for further research. The people who have ideas are carefully selected as respondent and they are interviewed by the investigators or researchers. • Experience Survey: In Experience survey, the people who have practical experience with the problem to be studied are surveyed. The main purpose of such experience survey is to explore the relationships between variables and new ideas relating to the research
COMPARISONS BETWEEN A CLASS WHERE POWER POINT PRESENTAION IS USED TO PRESENT THIS LESSON AND WHERE IT IS NOT The implications of interposing a PowerPoint presentation between an instructor and students and one taught without PowerPoint or led a case discussion without PowerPoint or acted Socratic-like without PowerPoint, our relationship with students was unmediated and more human, more direct, less pre-meditated and less structured. The pedagogy involved depended on the particular situation, the process of interchange, the verbal and nonverbal communication, the repartee, the facial expressions, and the multitude of things that unfold during unmediated human relationships and dialogue. These were all “immediacy behaviors” which include such
Dry bulk density, water content and soil porosity will be measured using pycnometer method as described by Heiskanen (1992). 3.3.4 Soil penetration resistance Soil penetration resistance was measured using the methods described by Kouwenhoven et al. (2002). A digital Eijkelkamp penetrologger was used for 20 measurements per each subplot in a systematic order at a depth of 60cm. The total measurements were conducted in March, 2016 during spring season with a total of 360 measurements for all three plots (NIT, ECO and CON).
The research process starts with asking at least one question about a specific phenomenon of interest, the research question will help a researcher to direct attention, thoughts, efforts, in deciding on the most suitable approach to answer the question and then make sense of the phenomenon of interest (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, 2009). To ensure that others appreciate the results of the research, a researcher needs to explain the philosophical approach that has been used in answering the research question that in essence helps to validate the research outcome (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill,
The sample for this study consists of students from the faculty of mass communication at king Abdul-Aziz university for the academic year 2015, summer term. The sample consisted of 84 students. Of those students, 32 were female students and 52 were male students. 3.7. Ethical issues It is important to ensure the study ethics especially when the respondents are humans.
For example, a classification approach is used (Minaei Bidgoli et al., 2003) to classify students to predict their final year performance based on different parameters derived from the data in an educational web-based system. A clustering algorithm is used (Tsai, Tseng, & Lin, 2009) to categorize students with similar behavioral characteristics. Association rule mining techniques have frequently been used to solve educational problems and carry out critical analysis in an academic environment for improving the learning process of student. These efforts are carried out in order to raise the standards and administration of educational processes by investigating the learning systems, learning resources arrangements, and students’ results, curriculum restructuring, and institutional websites (Damasevicius, 2009; Talavera, & Gaudioso, 2004; Erdogan, & Timor, 2005). A very comprehensive review of data mining in education from 1995 to 2005 is published in 2007 by Romero and Ventura.
