Question by (=~*Amy*~=): What should I write my research paper on relating to health and yoga or zumba?
My actual product/project would be to take classes in either yoga or zumba (whichever I fully decide to do) and eventually teach a class on my own.

I’m not a very fit and healthy person and I feel that taking yoga classes could help my body a little. I really want to do this project because I want to do a project on self improvement. Since I’m not the healthiest and most fit person around I’d like that to change.

My point with this, is that maybe a topic question about health thats related to (or leads into, or involves) yoga can help?

Like a question having to do with the different alternatives to becoming healthy. My only problem is figuring out a good topic that could cover all that.

So yeah, please help!! It would mean a lot!

We all know about male bashing on television. Sadly, there is a similar bias in mental health research. This video give a quick glimpse into three studies which show this anti-male bias. We have all grown to trust “research” and when we hear that a study shows that “X is correct” we tend to automatically believe that “X” is correct. Research has taken on an almost divine ethos that carries the seal of approval of correctness. If science says it, it must be so. The problem of course is that science, especially social science, is less than concrete and is much more slippery than measuring a distance or the tensile strength of a bar of steel. Mental health research is much more vulnerable to values and ideologies of the researchers. If a scientist believes a certain thing it usually has little impact on his measurements of the tensile strength of the bar of steel. No matter what he believes the measurement will likely be the same. But what about issues in social sciences where researchers come to the table with a large amount of preconceived ideas, allegiances to ideologies that espouse strong opinions about those being studied or have traumatic life histories that bias them against certain groups? Can those sorts of things influence the “findings” of a social science study? You bet they can. Gone is the impartial judge weighing the evidence and sifting through the data to find the truth. In today’s world of social science research the opposite is happening: researchers are

Question by Grattan C: Main Research Question:How can Design Education enable a design thinker to operate in the contemporary world?
Main Research Question:
How can Design Education enable a design thinker to operate in the contemporary world, and not so much on any particular discipline? The practical application of design.

Sub Problems:
1.The human brain. How do we think? How do we learn? What exactly is education? How does information play a role in my knowledge? How do I construct a mental model? How does consilence play a role in learning?
2.Ideas. Where do they come from? Is design a matter of problem solving or is it more than this?
3.How does the environment in which we learn play a role in education? How does mental and physical space play a role in both education and everyday life? In what context do we learn, and in what context does design take place, are these different?
4.Why is creativity so important in learning? How can other aspects of design play a role in the teaching thereof? How can education maintain inspiration?
5.Sustainability. What does this mean on an educational level?
6.Past models of education versus current models. What are these? What processes are involved in the fuzzy front end of design, and why is it just that…the “fuzzy” front end?
7.What exactly is technology and how does it play a role in education? What is intellectual technology? What is the difference? Where does all this fit into education?
8.Synthesis, integration, multi-disciplinary. Why are these key words in design education? The jump between education and the real world? How can the system help students deal with this?
