On Optimal Study Time Planning. Almost anyone studying for CCIE Lab has limited time resources.

On Optimal Study Time Planning

Practically everyone thinks about optimum study time management. For example, take IEWB-RS VOL1, which has a tremendous amount of material to work on. The workbook is structured in sections of different sizes. Let’s assume that you need to spend T1, T2, T3 … TN (N – number of sections) hours on section 1, 2, 3 … N but you only have T hours available for study, so that T1+T2+T3 +… +Tn > T. Of course, if T > T1+T2+…+TN, you’re a lucky person and don’t have to bother with optimizations!. Your Body's Best Time for Everything.

My weekly schedule, an exercise. Time management. Question Wording. Perhaps the most important part of the survey process is the creation of questions that accurately measure the opinions, experiences and behaviors of the public.

Question Wording

Accurate random sampling and high response rates will be wasted if the information gathered is built on a shaky foundation of ambiguous or biased questions. Creating good measures involves both writing good questions and organizing them to form the questionnaire. Questionnaire design is a multistage process that requires attention to many details at once. Designing the questionnaire is complicated because surveys can ask about topics in varying degrees of detail, questions can be asked in different ways, and questions asked earlier in a survey may influence how people respond to later questions.

How to Enhance Your Writing Productivity with a Pomodoro Timer. It is definitely not the beginning of the semester anymore. The Pomodoro Technique: An Overview. ProfHacker has covered many different time management techniques, and today I’m going to introduce you to another one.

The Pomodoro Technique: An Overview

The Pomodoro technique was created by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s and is a time management solution similar to other timeboxing techniques that many programming and collaboration teams have adopted. “Pomodoro” is Italian for tomato, and the technique is named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that can be used to track your work sessions. What sets the Pomodoro technique apart from other time management techniques is the 5 simple steps and the use of a timer (either a physical timer, like a kitchen timer, or a software timer on your computer or smartphone).

This technique uses 5 basic steps: After 4 consecutive Pomodoros (4 25-minute sessions, or almost 2 hours), you will take a longer break, say 15-30 minutes. Not only is the simple 5-step process easy to follow, but it’s also easy to remember. Six Steps to Writing a Literature Review. In their book, Destination Dissertation: A Traveler's Guide to a Done Dissertation , Sonja Foss and William Walters have a chapter that describes a highly efficient way of writing a literature review.

I think it provides an excellent guide for getting through the massive amounts of literature in any field. Step One : Define the area you will be studying. Before you begin to search for articles or books, decide beforehand what areas you are going to research. Pedagogy is just common sense? Using NVivo to support your research process.

There is analysis software, which can be used in the data analysis. However, these programs are developed mostly for grounded theory and can never do the real work for you. This is how I was presented for analysis software the first time I made a course in qualitative research methods, and I have heard similar statements in other situations as well. I have used NVivo from the beginning of my project, and I am convinced that NVivo (and similar tools of course) can be a great support for the entire research process (not only analysis), independent of your methodology. It will of course not make the analysis for you, but I cannot understand how I could possibly organize my data better manually than I can do with an analysis software.

With background from software development and as research scientist from natural science, I am aware that I probably have a more than average “digital mind”. 104: The psychology and stress of a PhD. Why use NVivo for your literature review? SIT - Systematic Inventive Thinking® Basic principles of systems thinking as applied to management and leadership.
