The three constructs adapted for this thesis are prior conditions, characteristics of the decision-making process and perceived characteristics of innovation (Rogers, 1995).Rogers (1995) describes the four constructs in Figure 1 as having multiple facets that have distinct characteristics that contribute to its effectiveness as a research method.(Rogers, 1995) .Distance learning system allows communication to happen between the instructor and student asynchronously (at their preferred time) or synchronously (in real time) with the help of technology (Smith, 1999) Smith mentioned that the courses in the distance learning system that requires the presence of the student during examinations or other requirem...

The next step is “Persuasion” where the diffusion process takes place mostly within the mind of the adopter.The individual makes the final decision of whether to adopt or reject.The Diffusion of Innovation Theory The Diffusion of Innovation Theory by Rogers E. M. states that an innovation diffuses or spreads through our society in a predictable pattern.This is where the students analyze the advantages and the disadvantages of the new process of enrollment in PUP compared to the traditional.Based upon these evaluations and discussions with others, the individual begins to learn toward either adoption or rejection of the innovation.

Yelling: Yelling is an emotion which generally arises from frustration at not being able to manage or deal with students or events (Lewis, 1997; B. Rogers, 1997).Smith, C. J., & Laslett, R. (1993).Children may disrupt a class because they may be bored, some people like being class clown, or just because they are mischievous (B. Rogers, 1997).Discipline is essential if students are going to learn unhampered by hostile disruptions (Osborn & Osborn, 1989; B. Rogers, 1997; W. A. Rogers, 1991; Smith & Laslett, 1993).Whilst not ignoring the value of cognitive and metacognitive strategies for effective learning, recent research has stated that discipline and classroom management is probably the most taxing aspect of a teacher’s role...

enhances this atmosphere however, and although the goal may be difficult to achieve, unconditional positive regard eventually, according to Rogers, encourages even the “`unbehaved” to conform or even transform (Corey, 2004; Smith, 1999, 2004; Rogers, 1980).Many of those who use this approach however, do not usually strictly use the pattern that Rogers indicated in his model.Smith, M. K. (1997, 2004) ‘Carl Rogers and informal education’, .Carl Rogers (Smith, 1999, 2004; Rogers, 1980) initiated the model with the idea that within each individual is the capacity to ultimately surpass any personal and external barrier with the assistance and support of critical people.Rogers probably in his long years of exposure to different clients o...

Hemispheric lateralization, as discovered by Roger W.

Sperry’s split-brain studies demonstrated the ability of the cerebral hemispheres to function independently despite absence of communication between them after severing the co...

For convenience in understanding diffusion research results, the continuous variable of innovativeness is often divided into adopter categories, such as innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards (Rogers, 1983).According to Rogers, innovators were willing to experience new ideas.Diffusion is the process by which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system (Rogers, 2003).Rogers’ diffusion of innovations theory is the most appropriate for investigating the adoption of technology in higher education and educational environments (Medlin, 2001; Parisot, 1995).Critical Framework: In this study I followed the “Diffusion of Innovation Model” provided by commun...

To help ease this moral distress an evidence based end-of -life educational training program for NICU nurses has been successfully implemented in several neonatal intensive care units (NICU’s) to increase the nurses comfort level of caring for neonates and their families at the end of life (Bagbi, Rogers, Gomez, & McMahon, 2008).Conditions that impact vicarious experience include amount of exposure or experience to the behavior (least experience causes greater impact) and amount of instruction given (influence of others is greater with unclear guidelines) (Resnick & Galik, 2006).Assessing the substantive foundation of a middle range theory is based on four criteria (Smith, 2003).Visualizing the concepts in the conceptual mode...

Having already had an interest in psychological and psychiatric work whist at Union Theological Seminary Rogers then enrolled at Teachers’ College, Columbia University where he moved from Theology to Psychology, specialising in child guidance work and where he ‘began to think of myself as a clinical psychologist’ (Rogers, 1961:9).Although Maslow influenced Rogers, Rogers did not believe in such a rigid hierarchy.It is important to note that Maslow uses the term self-actualisation differently from the way Rogers uses it.Both Maslow and Rogers had theories of actualisation, defined by Tudor and Merry (2002:2) as ‘the assumed tendency of human beings to strive (though not necessarily consciously) towards fulfilment of their potential’.He be...
