A Tracer Study Prosoasa

...BACKGROUND Introduction A nation’s economy runs on the knowledge and skills of its people. The requirements for skills evolve with external investment, technological advances and globalization. To keep pace with changes, people need to acquire skills to be productive and earn a living and all of these can be achieved through education. Education is the most important mechanism for the empowerment of people for their socio-economic, political, and technological development. The learning environment of higher education institutions must take cognizance of this in structuring their course programs. For the purpose of quality assurance of course programs, higher education institutions can contribute meaningfully by applying the principles of tracer study to create sustainable learning empowerment environment for the continuous professional development of past students. While many higher education institutions provide training to a variety of clients, most forget them as soon as they graduate and leave the institution’s environment with no means to contact them. Employability upon graduation an over the long term is, understandably, the major priority for the vast majority of our University students. Over the past decades or so the University has increasingly offered a wide spectrum of higher education courses that provide students with the necessary tools enabling them to develop their employability skills, to heighten their awareness of these skills and to improve......

Techniques for Studying the Brain

...diseases, or infection. This test can be done by an MRI technologist, yet the pictures are usually interpreted by a radiologist. Some of the pros of having an MRI done are: 3D images with high resolution, excellent soft tissue contrast, and it’s safe and painless for patients. Some of the cons are: scanning takes a long time, some patients might get claustrophobic, and patients with metallic devices cannot be tested. Positron emission tomography, or PET is a test that uses a special type of camera and tracer. The tracer is a special substance, such as glucose, that collects in cells that are using a lot of energy. While a patient is in a test, the tracer liquid is put into a vein in your arm. Then, the tracer flows throughout your body and is collected in specific organs and tissues, so can tracers give off tiny positive charged particles (positrons.) Then a camera records the positrons and turns the recording into pictures on the computer. Some reasons why PET scans are done are to study the brains blood flow, metabolic activity, changes in the brain due to epilepsy, evaluate cancers, and to find damaged heart tissues. One big benefit of having a PET scan done is that PET imaging is unique and it shows chemical functioning of organs and tissues, while other imaging techniques, such as X-ray, CT, MRI show structure. Some cons of having a PET scan are that its expensive, uncommon, poor resolution, and the scans use ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation includes cosmic,......

The graduates were the primary sources of this information in all these studies apart from the Ndungutse study (2005) which used Deans of Faculties and academic staff as key informants. While the issues above were also studied in the current study, the primary sources of data were expanded to include employers, thus the current study had two components of the graduate tracer and employers' expectations studies. Studies under review used different approaches in drawing up graduate lists. For example, the Mayanja et al studies (1997, 1999) used a combination of methods to come up with "where are they now lists", these included placing of ads in the print media, records in the convocation book in addition to snowballing. On the other hand, Ndungutse (2005) used snowballing and records at professional bodies and hospitals. In terms of sampling the three studies mentioned above used the non random sampling technique where snowballing was highly relied upon. All the ...

...appointed the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments. The President created the Committee to investigate reports of possibly unethical experiments funded by the government decades ago. Member of committee: The members of the Advisory Committee were 14 private citizens from around the country: a representative of the general public and 13 experts in bioethics, radiation oncology and biology, nuclear medicine, epidemiology and biostatistics, public health, history of science and medicine, and law. The finding: The majority of human radiation experiments identified by the Advisory Committee involved radioactive tracers administered in amounts that are likely to be similar to those used in research today. Most of these tracer studies involved adult subjects and are unlikely to have caused physical harm.
