  1. It is my belief that research in the classroom as well as the workplace is of utmost importance. The aim of research is to broaden one’s knowledge about specific topics as well as the discovery of new knowledge. It is through research that we are able to find credible information to pass on to students and other individuals. We research to find the solutions to problems and if this is practiced in the classroom and workplace then there is only room for improvement. They say knowledge is power but research is greater power with the right evidence to prove a variety of points. Research is a means of lightening one’s darkness and opening one’s minds to different and new knowledge.In a nutshell research is an active process that teachers and other professionals should practice in order to get positive results.

Research plays an integral role in the life of those who have a zest for knowledge and are eager to find out about the “nitty gritty” of obscure strategies, concepts, ideas, hypothesis just to name a few. In light of this, conducting research in the classroom as well as the work place will help to identify the common held flaws/ challenges within that environment. After these challenges are been identified, then workable solutions can be tabled to minimize the weaknesses identified

  7. I believe that as teachers or any other professionals; we do not always know everything and we will never know everything. One way to keep ourselves informed and up-to-date so that we may further enhance the lives of our students and customers is by conducting researches. Taflinger (1996) stated that the two main purposes of doing a research are to learn something, or gather information to prove something. Whatever the reason(s) of the research, it can benefit us as teachers or other professionals tremendously in the classrooms and workplaces, as by conducting research in our area of studies we are gaining new knowledge and understanding about how to improve practices. Therefore I believe that when teachers and other professionals conduct research in the classrooms and other workplaces it will positively contribute to them, the practitioners, and to their students and customers/patients etc.

Every occupation has its own research problems and methods. As researchers, one seeks answers to questions of great interest to themselves.
