The following post has two assignments namely;
1. History of Scientific Data
The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science says, We believe that scientists have a responsibility to share the meaning and implications of their work, and that an engaged public encourages
sound public decision-making.” Persuade me either that publicizing the “implications of their work” and getting involved, in essence, in the political process will cause problems for public trust
in science (and why) or that this is what scientists should do (why? And how far should it go?). Alternatively, argue for what level of “sharing” scientists ought to do (i.e., using our historical
materials and evidence, argue for a middle ground and what that middle ground should be and why).
2.How to manage cultural differences in this new organisation
Read the case: “How to manage cultural differences in this new organisation”. Identify the focal problem, develop research question and hypothesis, discuss and propose alternative quantitative and
qualitative approaches to investigating the underlying causes of this problem. Extend your discussion by focusing on techniques for moving beyond interpersonal conflicts to identifying and testing
underlying management practices or approaches that cause problems for the organization’s functioning. integrate and discuss Biblical implications found in Deuteronomy 25:13-15 regarding the
importance of having accurate and honest weights and measures.
