This thesis examines biases in judgments made in the context of criminal investigation, drawing theoretically on frameworks developed in social and cognitive psychology.
X X The study started with an hour-long telephone interview with participating students. The students were then asked to keep a study diary for two weeks, including a video component to record how they were feeling.
This was followed at the end of the period by an additional interview. The survey also covered studying as a material practice i. Technology, and its embedding in life routines, is not transparent and neutral; rather, it regulates and mediates the experience of learning.
The ability to fit studying with their current lifestyle was the biggest factor in choosing distance learning, followed by their ability to attain a qualification and, following that, price competitiveness. As learners had to juggle studying with work and family, an engagement model that addresses only study encounters, in other words ignoring the wider ecosystem of life and work, fails to account for the way in which students allocate time and effort, in the context of daily decision-making: Study is not perhaps an antecedent choice; learning is instead a set of contextually prioritised choices.
The participants had many demands on their time and therefore wanted to study without compromising their other responsibilities and work commitments. The concerns that distance learners had when applying for their course were primarily rooted in uncertainty: In effect, these might constitute — in service marketing terms — the specification of what they were going to experience.
Initially, they were less concerned about socialising and engaging with fellow classmates; for them, the tutor—student relationship, or imagined relationship, was critical.
As this was a qualitative survey, we wanted to focus on individual students, rather than accumulating generalities about the entire cohort. Whatever statistical regularities may be drawn from the data, each item is derived from a personally experienced history, from a group of very diverse individuals.
This allowed us at least to imagine the learning process in the life of the student, who is recognised as an individual agent and decision maker. Figure 1 Participant infographic: Competing identities The survey generated a number of reflections.
Secondly, whilst employing customer survey techniques, the research was humanistic and person-centred, embedding the learning experience within the context of the life of the student.
We could therefore test what might work for each individual student. The student may or may not be engaged to a greater or lesser degree than his or her digital avatar collected from management information.
If, as Bliuc et al. It should perhaps not be surprising that students prioritised family first, work second and study third. The study habits of those with families as the dominant contextual factor were characterised by lack of structure owing to childcare and extra-curricular activities, while those whose main contextual influencer was work were able to be more structured in their study.
The research showed that distance learners with families tended not to study much over the weekends, unless they did not get time to study during the week.
