Efficacy of Student-Centered Conceptual Teaching Approach (SCCTA) on the Learning Skills of Nursing Students  [PDF]
Rambe C. Ramel Jr., Khandy Lorraine G. Apsay
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2017.711095
Abstract:

Background: The BS-Nursing in the Philippines has an intensive curriculum at par with international standards to cater the learning needs of the students to make them globally competitive suitable for the demands of health care jobs abroad. Objective: This study is intended to highlight an innovative student-centered teaching strategy termed as Student-Centered Conceptual Teaching Approach (SCCTA) believed to enhance the retention and critical thinking skills of nursing students compared to traditional teaching approach. Method: A Quantitative Methodology specifically Comparison Group Pre-test/ Post-test design was employed and both quantitative and qualitative data were gathered. These were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and t test. Third year BS-Nursing students served as the participants of the study. Results: Findings show that the pretest score profile of the participants in the control and experimental group obtained a p value of less than 0.001 α = 0.05; thus, indicating that their learning skills are below average. Furthermore, the posttest score profile of the participants in the control group obtained a p value of less than 0.001 at α = 0.05 indicating that their skills are still below average. The post-test score profile of the participants in the experimental, conversely, obtained p values of less than 0.001, and 0.11935, respectively at α = 0.05, suggesting that the participants made significant improvements in their learning skills. Whereas, the mean gains of both groups obtained p values of less than 0.001 at α = 0.05. This means that the participants had considerable learning in the above mentioned skills. However, there is a significant difference in the mean gains between the two groups due to the fact that the p values in all aforementioned skills are less than 0.001 at α = 0.05. Conclusion: The significantly different responses between the groups show clearly that the participants of the experimental group learned better with the use SCCTA.

Graphical and Kinematical Approach to Cosmological Horizons  [PDF]

Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.66.064009
Abstract: We study the apparition of event horizons in accelerated expanding cosmologies. We give a graphical and analytical representation of the horizons using proper distances to coordinate the events. Our analysis is mainly kinematical. We show that, independently of the dynamical equations, all the event horizons tend in the future infinity to a given expression depending on the scale factor that we call asymptotic horizon. We also encounter a subclass of accelerating models without horizon. When the ingoing null geodesics do not change concavity in its cosmic evolution we recover the de Sitter and quintessence-Friedmann-Robertson-Walker models.
No new skills without existing skills, but these skills are both practical and conceptual  [PDF]
Pierre Mounoud
Revista de Psicología y Educación , 2012,
Abstract: The title of my presentation reformulates the central postulate of Piaget’s theory: that a new structure can only be built on the basis of an existing structure related to the same kind of problem. I will first explain how Piaget used this postulate as the foundation for his work on the birth of intelligence. Then I will illustrate this process by means of the development of prehension behavior. I will examine several oppositions between practical intelligence and conceptual intelligence, and reconsider the use of the terms “practical” and “conceptual” to differentiate between systems of knowledge at different levels of development. My research on the construction of simple tools by children aged 4 to 9 years old will illustrate in more detail the process of developing new skills on the basis of pre-existing skills (that are simultaneously practical and conceptual). I will conclude my presentation by discussing some problems in the history of scientific and technical knowledge that are comparable to those discussed in relation to practical and conceptual skills in child development.
Management Skills of Pakistanis: a Comparison of Technical, Human and Conceptual Differences  [PDF]
Bahaudin G. Mujtaba,Muzhar Javed,Lam D. Nguyen
Advances in Management and Applied Economics , 2013,
Abstract: This study focuses on the management skills of respondents from Sahiwal, Pakistan, to see if gender and education can be significant factors in their technical, human and conceptual competencies. The results of 470 Pakistani adults show that there are significant differences in their management skills. No significant gender differences were found. In terms of the education variable, this study demonstrated that having a master’s degree does not necessarily increase a person’s human, technical or conceptual skills. Implications for educators, managers, and human resource professionals are presented.
The Impact of Information Infrastructure Capabilities on Knowledge Manipulation Skills: A Conceptual Framework  [cached]

Communications of the IBIMA , 2008,
Abstract: The globalisation of business, the growing use of information and communications technology (ICT) and, the shift from production-based to knowledge-based economy have given knowledge management (KM) a critical position across firms. However, there is limited empirical link between KM and information infrastructure capabilities. A key objective of this paper, therefore, is to determine the impact of information infrastructure capabilities on knowledge manipulation skills. This study will also examine specific applications that enable KM activities in firms. We will collect data from a sample of about 600 firms in MSC using questionnaires. Multiple analytical tools will be used in this study to determine the significant levels of associations and interactions between the variables. This research would provide useful information that could help MSC companies determine types of information infrastructures for effective KM implementation. To academics, the empirical insights from this study would be useful for theory building in the subject area.
