Tags: Presentations, peer feedback, summary posts
Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying the second presentation week! Thank you again to all the presenters and thank you to everyone for providing excellent peer review feedback. I’d like to take a minute to share with you the story of the first time I provide a presentation on a research study and received peer review feedback on it. I had spent several weeks working on a qualitative research study with rural high school students about their perceptions on schooling. I transcribed the interviews, I analyze the data and I presented my findings to my classmates and my professor in my doctoral program. After I did my presentation, my professor said (and my professor is Lois Weis) “Well Andrea that was very interesting, but it certainly wasn’t qualitative research.” My peers then followed up with many very critical questions about my work and I realize I had a lot to learn. It is very important to go through the peer reviewed process when you’re learning how to translate what you have learned about qualitative and quantitative research in reading and in discussion, into a real world project. I promise you it never goes as smoothly as you might imagine, and I certainly did not expect for anyone to present a perfect research project here in 689. I hope you can see the value of doing our presentations and receiving peer review feedback. I know it can be difficult to hear about some of the challenges or difficulties with your work, and I really appreciate you being open-minded to the process. Every researcher that does a valid research project goes through an approval process which involves some level of critique. Even researchers such as a Lois Weis still have to have their work approved by funding agencies, institutional review boards and other interested partners in the research. And that process always, without question, involves some level of critique. So what we are doing in our class these last few weeks is very similar to the real life process of getting a research project approved. I hope you are enjoying it and I hope you are find the process not to painful, and I hope we can all learn a lot form the work that we are sharing with each other. I will post a summary post on each discussion board after each presentation has ended this week, which means tomorrow. On Thursday I will make summary post. I posted them last week on Friday because the discussion ended on Thursday. Please be sure to take some time to read those posts. They’re very short, but they point out what are the most important critiques of the research projects that were presented. I want to make sure you get my take on what the most important parts of our peer reviewed discussions have been. For those of you who are presenters, I do post presentation scores the day after the presentation discussion board is closed. So, be sure to check the Blackboard grade book for your score and comments on your presentations. I have not yet scored the final Literature Review. I’ve been spending time scoring the presentations and I want to make sure I return all of the literature reviews back to you at about the same time. I would like to ask for your patience and I would like to score the final literature reviews next week during the Thanksgiving holiday. Next week, as you know, you don’t have any discussion boards or readings or assignments for this course. I hope you all enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family! During that time, I will have a few days where I can work on scoring your final reviews. I hope to have all those scores given back to you by the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for your patience. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week’s presentation discussions and I look forward to our continuing work in this course. Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!

I believe everyone needs a second chance there are many reasons why people needs and received second chances why does full work ups and down why it happened. You maybe someone who had to make some choices and decisions might have had some good outcome and maybe some outcomes that we're not so favorable then those decisions have to do with my friendship and form of religion or politics whatever happened I think I just want to immediately re think or maybe not sometimes it causes the person to ask what could I've done differently as we move through life we often think how we could change the outcome of a least some some people deserve a second chance when they have asked for forgiveness this means the person has thought about the wrong dealing quite a perception there's things of part

Hi this is Jennifer Sherwood. I'm recording on my book analysis that I did. I chose a book summary on the book titled not without my sister. It's a true story of three sisters that re account their lives being brought up in a cult setting. They were born and raised in a cult called children of the God. I think this book really depicts how abusive all abuses violence against women sexual mental and physical harm and damage not to mention the lack of socializing with the outside world really affects their perception and how they lived their lives in general. I think the book really shows what we learned in class and how we can incorporate it into the use of our everyday lives as far as personal _and__ careers. The book offers horrific detailed accounts of what these three sisters went through their struggle for survival in the cult and

I believe we are influenced by each-other(?) beyond our perception. We're always looking for ways of measuring ourselves. So we can feel good about ourselves throughout our lives we maintain a mental image of ourselves. We measure it in different ways and we try(?) this way and that way to put ourselves in a good life because(?) I get older. My mental image has been changing in ways that I don't like I am fatter. I don't eat right I'm(?) slower and more recently. It's not that(?) easy to pick up things off the floor. The issues(?) in my medical image of myself and(?) then last(?) night(?) deal(?) on Super Bowl weekend. I decided I had(?) had enough. I've got to get back some of the negative parts of myself and I decided to lose more than 20 pounds by May 27 which is mine and my wife's 24th anniversary and our(?) son's graduation from high school. I told my family as well as my science students that(?) I was(?) starting to diet and fitness.
