CASE STUDY Study of a certain real situation or scenario featured Documented, used as a training tool in business schools and companies. Students or trainees are required to analyze the prescribed cases and present their interpretations or solutions employed supported by the line of reasoning and assumptions. Case studies can be made by following a formal research method. These case studies are likely to appear in formal research institutions, such as magazines and conferences, rather than popular works. The resulting body of "case study research" has a prominent place in many disciplines and professions had, of psychology, anthropology, sociology and political science to education, clinical science, social work and management science for a long time.
The case study method is the preferred choice of methodology given that it allows the researcher to explore additional avenues of information that may arise in the case study of the participating higher education institution (HEI). This study used a descriptive case study methodology. A descriptive case study was most fitting for an analysis that was dedicated to answering “how” and “why” questions about a given phenomenon (Yin, 2009). The purpose of the current study was to learn how and why internationalization has developed at the different HEIs. Case studies allow for selective sampling strategies, employ multiple methods of data collection, and provide a richer understanding of the topic which will focus on the particulars and the complexity, the uniqueness and
Research case studies based on company analysis are usually focus on identifying some issues related to specified objectives through empirical enquiries. This method of the case study is useful for trying to test theoretical models by using them in real world situations. The case study based research method is different from the statistical method that its results cannot be extrapolated to fit an entire question of the study. But it is argued that a case study provides more realistic responses than a purely statistical survey. By including both quantitative and qualitative data, case study method helps to explain both the process and outcome of an issue or a phenomenon through complete observation, reconstruction and analysis of the company
There are at least three situations that create a desire to employ a case study method of research. The first reason to employ a case study method of research is determined by the question itself that the study is trying to address. Case studies are relevant when one is attempting to addresses either a descriptive question “what is happening or what has happened?” and an explanatory question such as how or why did something happen the way it happened. Secondly, by give emphasis to the study of a phenomenon within its real-world context, the case study method of research favors the collection of data in natural settings, compared with relying on already derived data. Thirdly, case studies as methods of research are now commonly used in conducting
Data collecting method being used in this research is a qualitative research approach based on interviews. The interviews were done with a total of 10 foreigner students studying in Tianjin, China. In order for the interviewee to be comfortable, some of the interview was done in a quite environment. Aside from that due to their busy schedule, some of it was done through voice notes in WeChat (微信). Furthermore transcriptions of the interviews were made in order to get an easier analyzes for the discussion
CONSTRUCTION AND VALIDATION OF THE RESEARCH INSTRUMENT The researchers conducted an in-depth interview as the research instrument in gathering data. It includes small number of respondents, exploring their perspectives about the topic by asking questions. Researches themselves made the 15-item open-ended questionnaire, having an objective to identify circumstances affecting job satisfaction of senior high school educators. The researchers consulted a grammarian, a proof reader and a Filipino translator as the validators of this questionnaire and the entire study output. Researchers chose senior high school teachers and educators in the Polytechnic University of the Philippines as the study's validators as the topic is related to them.
The reach out and bring in found to be one of the unique feature of Chinese strategy of internationalization with various purposes. It includes exchange students and attracting inbound international students as well as promoting Chinese culture and language through opening Confucius institute around the world. As a result, China changed its position from the world’s major origin of international students to one of the top major destination of international student in less than two decades. In case two there are few fragmented activities of internationalization, frequent introduction of new change tools-the adoption of Bologna process and its elements to improve quality standard of teaching and learning in the universities. There is no national strategy for attracting international student, as a result Ethiopia remain in 2000s where the two important higher education proclamations
With this idea in mind, I plan to conduct individual interviews to highlight student opinions and experiences with academic advising. The information collected will help me determine if the Center for Academic, Career, and Student Success is effective in supporting student success during their four years of college. I also hope to identify different resources provided by the program that students find helpful and informative. All in all, the second major learning outcome requires students to identify the difference between qualitative and quantitative methods and create research questions that can be answered using a qualitative and quantitative analysis. By providing these two deliverables, I demonstrate and fulfill the second major learning outcome of the social and behavioral science major.
2.2 Data The research was done by using quantitative method which the data were collected from giving questionnaire to thirty-three Binus students as the data collection. The data was analyzed by calculating the percentage of participants’ opinions about the factors that influence them to choose a language in a certain situation and interprate the result. 2.3 Result and Interpretation From the questionnaire collected, the writer got the data as below : Figure 2.1 Figure 2.1 shows that 6.1% of the respondents are monolingual, 57.6% are bilingual, 24.2% speak 3 languages (trilingual), and 12.1% speak more that 3 languages (polygot). Figure 2.2 Figure 2.2 shows that the participants speak local language as their first language 21.2%, Bahasa
Study abroad is one of the best ways for a student to acquire marketable international qualifications and cross-cultural competency, two of the most decisive aptitudes for individuals today for their future career, prior to graduation.
