PROBLEMS OF PART-TIME STUDENTS IN GHANA: Implications For Distance Education
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2009,
Abstract: Learning for self development and professional development has almost become a necessity in the face of rapid technological advancement, knowledge explosion and socio-economic change among others; and for most adults combining work with study may be the only way out for them to further their education. Part-time study is thus becoming trendy worldwide including Ghana. But it also comes with its challenges. This paper sought to find out what these problems are in Ghana. The survey design was used with the questionnaire being the principal instrument and data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. There were 160 students who were sampled from four institutions offering part-time study in Accra. Three of them were offering professional courses with City Campus of University of Ghana offering academic courses. The findings revealed that part-time students have problems relating to family responsibilities, work, institutional commitments and finance among others. The findings indicated that course deliveries at the distance need to be flexible in terms of structure and time. Distance education provision must consider fee payments in instalments in order to retain the students in the learning activities.

E-Learning Strategies in Technical Part-Time Studies at Campus Pinkafeld – A Moderate Constructivist Approach to Learning and Teaching
Andrea Kelz
International Journal of Advanced Corporate Learning (iJAC) , 2009, DOI: 10.3991/ijac.v2i1.800
Abstract: The introduction of part-time studies contributed decisively to a wider acceptance of technical degree programmes at Campus Pinkafeld as their particular organisational design allows students to study alongside work and family commitments. As far as higher technical education is concerned, they provide constructivist-oriented pedagogic approaches to best prepare students for the workplace. In contrast to traditional behaviourist notions, constructivist frameworks allow for blended-learning settings which help implement learning scenarios based on open, technology-aided, learner-centred, self-directed and collaborative learning environments. Exploring some of these more progressive, process-oriented approaches to learning and teaching and the theory behind it are the primary aims of this paper.
Organizational commitment, job satisfaction and intention to leave: A comparative analysis between part-time and full-time faculties Compromiso organizativo, satisfacción con el trabajo e intención de abandonar la organización: Análisis comparativo entre el profesorado universitario a tiempo parcial y a tiempo completo.

Education Policy Analysis Archives , 2008,
Abstract: The importance of part-time work has been growing in recent years, due to its significant increase in today's societies, and higher education institutions have not been alien to this trend. The present research tries to study the relationship between organizational commitment and job satisfaction with the intention to leave the institution, comparing part-time and full-time faculty. An empirical research, grounded in the model proposed by Currivan (1999), has been undertaken, with a sample of faculty of ETSEIAT, a college of the Technical University of Catalonia. Results show the existence of the relationships with organizational commitment, job satisfaction and intention to leave predicted in the literature, and significant differences in job satisfaction and organizational commitment between part-time and full-time faculty. The paper ends with some proposals of further research. El trabajo a tiempo parcial ha ido adquiriendo importancia debido a su significativo aumento en las sociedades actuales, y las universidades no han sido ajenas a esta tendencia. La presente investigación estudia las relaciones entre el compromiso organizativo y la satisfacción con el trabajo con la intención de abandonar la universidad, comparando al profesorado universitario a tiempo completo con el profesorado a tiempo parcial. El estudio empírico consiste en un análisis de los predictores de la satisfacción con el trabajo y el compromiso organizativo basado en el modelo propuesto por Currivan (1999), con una muestra procedente de la escuela ETSEIAT (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). Los resultados muestran que las relaciones entre compromiso, satisfacción e intención de abandonar son las previstas en la literatura, así como diferencias significativas entre profesorado a tiempo completo y tiempo parcial. El estudio acaba con algunas propuestas de investigaciones futuras.
Modalities and learning in computer science
Raymond Flood,Bob Lockhart,Pete Thomas
ITALICS , 2004,
Abstract: In this paper we describe a part-time diploma course in computing delivered in two modes (face-to-face class teaching and electronically via the internet). We present results comparing the two modes in terms of student performance and their own perception of their educational experience. This project makes use of a number of data sets involving performance data, student perceptions, demographics and attrition rates. In general, we found that students performed comparably in the two modes. Various issues are identified for further investigation particularly: the development of key skills, the importance of assessment in student motivation, and attrition in the Internet mode.
An Assessment of the Academic Achievement of Students in Two Modes of Part-time Programme in Nigeria
Kola Adeyemi,Austin Osunde
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning , 2005,
Abstract: This study analyses the academic achievement of students enrolled in part-times studies at on-campus and outreach centres at three dual-mode Nigerian universities, during the 1996/97 to 1998/ 99 academic years. Research subjects in this study were examination and record officers employed by on-campus and outreach institutions. A checklist was prepared to collect students’ grades; these checklists were then transcribed into grade points (GPAs) for data collection purposes. Simple percentage mean (x) and t-test statistic were used for data analysis. Interviews were also conducted with key stakeholders to add qualitative context to the quantitative data collected. This study shows that there was significant difference in the academic performance of students enrolled in the on-campus versus outreach-based, part-time programmes in selected disciplines. Also the average mean (x) performance of students enrolled in the on-campus programme was higher than those students enrolled in the outreach centres. Based on the findings of this study, it is recommended that the government provide adequate funding to increase access individuals seeking higher education in Nigeria. The establishment of functional Open University system is also recommended to provide students with distant learning opportunities and likewise increase access. Several quality improvements are likewise recommended: the use of modern information technology for instructional delivery, recruitment of skilled teachers, improved teaching/ learning facilities, and strict adherence to standardized student admission requirements as specified by the National Universities Commission (NUC). We wrap up with practical suggestions, such as providing orientation sessions for outreach students to learn practical skills such as how to access library materials.
Teaching HR Professionals: The Classroom as a Community of Practice
Kate Rowlands,Alex Avramenko
Education Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/educsci3020147
Abstract: This paper introduces an innovative course design incorporating both communities of practice and reflective practice as a learning strategy for part-time learners in higher education. The new design has been applied to teaching HR practitioners in a UK-based business school. Findings indicate that the suggested way of organizing teaching and learning for part-time professionals is very informative and facilitates a richer engagement with theory whilst addressing issues of practice.
Part-time undergraduate study in civil engineering – students from the workplace
John Davies
Engineering Education , 2008,
Abstract: This is an investigation of part-time undergraduate degree study in civil engineering based at Coventry University. It aimed to answer the following four questions:How do the experiences of part-time students of civil engineering compare with those for other subject areas reported in the literature?What is the difference in performance of part-time and full-time students?What are the reasons for the differences?What should we learn from this?The study incorporated three elements: scrutiny of data on student numbers, age and performance; a questionnaire to allow comparison of factual information on the circumstances of part-time and full-time students; and interviews with 21 part-time students (in groups of four or five) and three part-time graduates (individually).The interviews gave insights into the experiences of part-time students of civil engineering and allowed comparison with those in other subject areas. A study of performance by part-time and full-time students for four academic years between 2002 and 2006 revealed that part-time students outperformed full-time students in terms of grade of honours and marks in modules (6.4 percentage marks on average in every module). The reasons for the better performance of part-time students were considered and it was concluded that the greatest advantage comes from the skills, attitudes, and motivation that part-time students have developed in the workplace. Recommendations are made in terms of better support for part-time students and ways of benefiting from the potential contributions they can make.
