THE SIG­NIF­I­CANCE OF A STUDY

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! - JOWELL Y. REYES

Is aca­demic re­search re­ally im­por­tant? Who will ben­e­fit from the stud­ies made?

Why some teach­ers avoid get­ting in­volve in re­search or mak­ing stud­ies? The pur­pose of re­search is to give in­for­ma­tion, find­ing so­lu­tion, re­solv­ing con­flicts, mak­ing anal­y­sis and com­par­i­son. In the field of stud­ies, a re­search is a tool for build­ing knowl­edge and for fa­cil­i­tat­ing learn­ing, it goes be­yond cer­tain stud­ies that could re­solve prob­lems and thus be­come use­ful in de­vel­op­ing strate­gies in the field of ed­u­ca­tion.

Mak­ing re­search is chal­leng­ing, yet it is at­tain­able and can be a great help in find­ing so­lu­tions to some ex­tent prob­lems that are bear­able in the teach­ing process.

Both teach­ers and stu­dents will ben­e­fit from aca­demic re­search, it will clar­ify con­fu­sion on cer­tain prob­lems, ap­pro­pri­ate un­der­stand­ing of a sub­ject and be­come more knowl­edge­able on the sub­ject.

Teach­ers are be­ing en­cour­aged to do a re­search to com­bat prob­lems or to ad­dress is­sues that will im­prove aca­demic per­for­mance or be­hav­ioral is­sues.
