I have finished keying data on two batches of students. One was a group of postgraduate students taking Management Policies and a group of undergraduates taking principles and practices of management. The summary of the data is
- 586 students have done the assignment and completed a report
- 79% said that they feel happier after doing this assignment
- 9.5% did the assignment but did not provide a conclusion
- 9% said there was no difference or they were not sure of the benefits of the assignment
- 2.5% were "others"
Several themes were repeated:
1. Students did not like the assignment at the beginning but after the 2nd, 3rd or 4th video, most say they started to get interested.
2. Many students have questions about Islam. This assignment was an opportunity to find the answers.
3. Almost everybody reported enjoying the tafsir of the Qur'an most
I am teaching management and organizational behaviour at the International Islamic University Malaysia. Since 2010, I have been researching anything related to Happiness in Islam. This blog documents my reading, my hypotheses,s and the data I collected.
This blog documents the perception of Dr Fontaine's students related to developing happiness in Islam. Students need to complete two assignments in which they improve their knowledge of Islam. This increased knowledge seems to lead to greater happiness.
