Tecnicas de Estudio

Como se mencionó antes, la estrategia para construir nuestro marco de referencia depende de lo que nos revele la revisión de la literatura. Veamos qué se puede hacer en cada caso. Existencia de una teoría completamente desarrollada Cuando nos encontramos con que hay una teoría capaz de describir, explicar y prede­cir el fenómeno de manera lógica y consistente, y que reúne los demás criterios de eva­luación de una teoría que acaban de mencionarse, la mejor estrategia para construir el marco teórico es tomar dicha teoría como la estructura misma del marco teórico. Ahora bien, si descubrimos una teoría que explica muy bien el problema de investigación que nos interesa, debemos tener cuidado de no investigar algo que ya ha sido estudiado muy a fondo. Nuestro marco teórico se basaría en esta teoría, incorporando algunas otras referencias de interés. Chapter 6-THEORETICAL & CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK. Theoretical Frameworks. Contents Why use a Theoretical Framework?

Theoretical Frameworks

An effective history paper should do more than simply report what happened in the past. An effective history paper should also provide some analysis. Using a theoretical framework for your paper can help open up your analysis of past events by providing a particular set of questions to ask, and a particular perspective to use when examining your topic. top of page What is a Theoretical Framework? Theoretical frameworks provide a particular perspective, or lens, through which to examine a topic. Theoretical frameworks, however, are even more specific than these broad subject approaches.

Theoretical frameworks are obviously critical in deductive, theory-testing sorts of studies (see Kinds of Research for more information). In those kinds of studies, the theoretical framework must be very specific and well-thought out. Surprisingly, theoretical frameworks are also important in exploratory studies, where you really don't know much about what is going on, and are trying to learn more. Cases and Variables Cases are objects whose behavior or characteristics we study. Variables are characteristics of cases. In any particular study, variables can play different roles. (yes, I know.

Teaching to the World From Central New Jersey - Commentary.

The noncredit Princeton offering came about through a collaboration between Coursera, a new venture in online learning, and 16 universities, including my own. When my class was announced last spring, I was both excited and nervous. Unlike computer science and other subjects in which the answers are pretty much the same around the globe, sociology can be very different depending on the country that you come from.

As letters and e-mail messages began arriving in anticipation of my course, I wondered how I, an American professor, could relate my subject to people I didn't know from so many different societies.
