Perception of usefulness of GI
Q1. What features of the GI did you find most useful?
S. No. Theme An instance of response from participants artefacts
A Interactive video ‘….interactive video sessions…conceptual information in the video’
B Question prompts ‘... Questions that were between the videos….’
C Drag and drop activity ‘….the way it taught each and every detail about the experiment...’
D Domain of genetics ‘….solving problem of mendelian inheritance…Mendel experiments…..’
Perception of usability of GI
Q2. After interacting with GI, I learned something which I consider to be valuable. GI is valuable for ….
Q3. How do you plan to use the knowledge you obtained from this online workshop in other topic/subjects or anywhere else? Please explain briefly
S. No. Theme (learning of …) An instance of response from participants artefacts
A Complex cognitive processes ‘… i will use this in other fields of biology and if possible then in science…topics which can be covered are an example..circulation, respiration, etc.….’
B Genetics concepts ‘….I would like to research more on the genetic crossing, alleles, Mendel’s theory of crossing and would like to implement the same in other fields…’
C Statistical concepts ‘…would use in the biostatistics….’ ‘by doing sums online and in chi-square test’
D In advance studies ‘…..learners who are graduates or even under-graduation…for further education….’
Q4. What features of the GI did you find challenging/frustrating?
Q5: What challenges did you face during the whole duration of this online workshop?
S. No. Theme (difficulty in...) An instance of response from participants artefacts
A Predicting the result of an experiment ‘making ratio’ ‘toggling between options’ ‘punnet square’
B Calculating the chi-square value ‘calculation of sum’ ‘chi-square statistics’
C Understanding parts of the hypothesis ‘solving the hypothesis questions’ ‘understanding hypothesis’ ‘I was unable to understand the question’
