Expansion of Weight-room and Fitness Center.

For this assignment is going to be expansion of the Weight-room/fitness center. This week, the goal is for you to think about different levels of problems. The first is “annoyance-in-the-workplace” problems. These are the lowest level of problems. Imagine, to begin with, you had coworkers who called in sick too frequently and caused you to have more work to do. You might consider their chronic absenteeism a problem due to its impact on your work/life balance, but it would not be suitable as a problem to discuss in this course. The reason is that you could only discuss this problem’s applicability to your own life or to the lives of a small circle of your peers at your school. It would not be a problem that would be beneficial for your peers at other schools to learn about if you went to a workshop or conference. It would also likely be based on personal opinion and biased thinking instead of on research from reputable sources like journal articles, government websites or trade publications. So, let’s put the “annoyance-in-the-workplace” problem aside. Now consider the highest level of problem, namely the “research-worthy” problem that has some elements of what you need to do but is also not quite a perfect fit because it is beyond the scope of a MEd degree. If you were in a doctoral program at NCU, you would be choosing a research-worthy problem in education. You would prove that there was a need to research this problem, that it was of interest to other scholars as evidenced by the presence of enough peer-reviewed research on the topic, and you would be expected to add something to the scholarly conversation by filling in a gap in knowledge or adopting a problem that someone else had studied so that it was like the situation you were experiencing in your workplace.) This is too rigorous for a MEd Capstone because you only have eight weeks to complete the course, you have not had CITI ethics training, and you have not received institutional review board (IRB) approval to conduct research on human subjects. Despite those drawbacks, some of the guiding questions you will see in the assignment itself will look more similar to the higher level “research-worthy” problem than to the lower level “annoyance-in-the-workplace” problem We share the various levels of problems with you because we want you to consider the possibility of doctoral studies at NCU after your MEd or MEd-EdL and to see that the doctorate is something that is connected to what you are already doing and an attainable goal. Complete the following Spotlight on Skills if you need assistance with the tools used to complete your assignments. Spotlight on Skills: If you are having difficulty coming up with an idea for your educational problem, think of a few topics of interest and try them in the NCU Library’s Credo Reference database located at https://search-credoreference-com.proxy1.ncu.edu/. This is a really interesting way to start a search and to obtain background information on topics in several ways.
