Logic of Scientific Inquiry: Integrating Research Design in Education logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
This book builds the framework for scientific research with in-depth analyses of major scientific theories. It carries paradigm unification from conceptualization in the first two chapters to realism in the in depth analysis. Data for each study include: the researchers method of analysis, and selection of paradigm(s), comparisons, contrasts, and a summary that follows with perspectives of normal science and naturalistic inquiry. It provides a structure for in-depth comparisons and contrasts of major paradigms—positivism, post-positivism, critical theory, and constructivism.

Designing Social Inquiry: Scientific Inference in Qualitative Research logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
While heated arguments between practitioners of qualitative and quantitative research have begun to test the very integrity of the social sciences, Gary King, Robert Keohane, and Sidney Verba have produced a farsighted and timely book that promises to sharpen and strengthen a wide range of research performed in this field. These leading scholars, each representing diverse academic traditions, have developed a unified approach to valid descriptive and causal inference in qualitative research, where numerical measurement is either impossible or undesirable. Their book demonstrates that the same logic of inference underlies both good quantitative and good qualitative research designs, and their approach applies equally to each.Providing precepts intended to stimulate and discipline thought, the authors explore issues related to framing research questions, measuring the accuracy of data and uncertainty of empirical inferences, discovering causal effects, and generally improving qualitative research. Among the specific topics they address are interpretation and inference, comparative case studies, constructing causal theories, dependent and explanatory variables, the limits of random selection, selection bias, and errors in measurement. Mathematical notation is occasionally used to clarify concepts, but no prior knowledge of mathematics or statistics is assumed. The unified logic of inference that this book explicates will be enormously useful to qualitative researchers of all traditions and substantive fields.

Conceptions of scientific inquiry relative to instructional practices logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
This book is based on an exploratory, descriptive and interpretive study which investigated interactions among learners’ and teachers’ conceptions of the nature of scientific inquiry (NOSI) and teacher instructional practices when teaching investigations in Physical Science. Learners’ and teachers’ conceptions on six NOSI tenets were investigated. These tenets are: difference between laws and theories; difference between observation and interpretation; there is no one method in science; accurate record keeping, peer review and replicability in science; socially and culturally embeddedness nature of scientific knowledge; and the role of human creativity and imagination in the development of scientific knowledge. Learners’ NOSI conceptions were found to be inconsistent, fragmented and fluid. Teachers were found to hold mixed NOSI conceptions ranging from static, empiricist-aligned to dynamic, constructivist-oriented. Teacher instructional practices were found to be a repertoire of contrasting methodological approaches lying along a continuum ranging from close-ended to open-ended inquiry. Recommendations and implications for the practice of science education are raised and discussed.

Action research: Distance learning and clinical education logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
This action research project reflects an individual's teaching and research journey. The evolution of practice as a University Lecturer in the development and delivery of a distance learning module in a post graduate diploma in clinical education is clear. Improvement of practice as both a practitioner of distance learning and as a practitioner involved in an educational inquiry is evaluated and authentic throughout. There is a balance of theoretical and practical discussion that would assist anyone interested in becoming involved in distance learning, clinical education, practitioner inquiry or action research.

The Melting Pot in Israel: The Commission of Inquiry Concerning Education in the Immigrant Camps During the Early Years of the State logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
This volume combines a translation of substantial portions of one of the most important documents in the early history of Israel-the Government commission of inquiry concerning education in the immigrant camps, appointed in 1950-with analysis of the ensuing public debates and repercussions, and their meaning for Israeli society today. Using extensive historical research, Zameret traces the development of political and social processes in the early years of Israel's existence and points to their far-reaching and decisive implications for contemporary Israeli society, including the rise of Shas, the political party created by ultra-Orthodox Oriental Jews.

Integrating Visual Culture with DBAE in Curricula logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
The study of visual culture in art education is a student-centered approach to art education that standard the learners’ benefits and awareness of the media images they see daily and reverence their wish to contribute in the making of such media. Visual Culture advocates student engagement, alone or in groups, with the meanings of images they see, manipulation and recycling of digital imagery as a way of knowing, and analytical reflection before, during, and after the process of making art. Moreover study and inquiry from the last 20 years has strongly supported for the addition of the four art dominants as curriculum elements: art history and culture, art criticism, art production and aesthetics. The exploration of these components is also related with improvement of discipline-based art education (DBAE) and they stay to conductor curriculum content decision-making in standards-based programs nowadays. The goal of this study was introduce a new method of teaching painting using Discipline-Based Art Education and Visual Culture Art Education model.

Integrating Customer Preferences, Organization Strategy and Resources logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
This research develops and tests the Effective Service Design model which integrates Customer Preferences, Organization Strategy and Resources of the organisation. The research extends the past research in the area of optimal service design by incorporating the strategy and resources along with customer preferences. This research is the first attempt to link strategy and resources with customer preferences. The study uses number of techniques and enables managers to make better decisions regarding resource allocation for effective service design considering organization strategy and customer preferences. Major theoretical contributions of the research are first in the area of services management and second in the area of resource allocation literature. The current research provides an effective service design model to services management area which integrates customer preferences, strategy and resources. This study contributes to resource allocation literature by considering customer preferences and organisation strategy for resource allocation. The managerial implication of this research is that it provides several scenarios for resource allocation in organisation.

Feasibility of Inquiry Based Teaching in Science logic of scientific inquiry integrating research design in education
Science is mostly taught by lecture method and teacher centered method, where students' role is confined to listener. Consequently students memorize scientific concept but don't follow the scientific approach in their daily life. In order to develop scientific approach and attitude among students,It is necessary that science should be taught by employing modern experiment oriented or student centered method. There are many experiment oriented and student centered teaching approaches. Inquiry Based Teaching (IBT) is one of them. This approach discourage rote learning and cramming and ensure students' involvement in learning. Teacher only plays the role of facilitator.
