Authors: PROTOGENE HAKIZIMANA, ABIAS MANIRAGABA, FRANCOIS XAVIER NSHIMIYIMANA

Abstracts: Spiny amaranths “Amaranthus spinosus” is a common leafy vegetable and is locally called dodo. It is grown both in wet and dry seasons and harvested between 30-40 days after planting. Because of its nutritional importance and demand but also less expensive it is widely cultivated especially in Kigali, Rwanda. The level of heavy metals in soil and leaf samples of Amaranthus spinosus grown in seven sites were performed by using Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission. The objective of study was to assess the level of heavy metals in soil and in leaves of amaranthus spinosus. The heavy metals that were assessed are: Manganese (Mn); Zinc (Zn); Copper (Cu); Cadmium (Cd); Iron (Fe); Nickel (Ni) and Lead (Pb). The results obtained revealed that their concentrations in soil ranged between : Mn ( 45.3-243.5); Zn (37.8-56.7) ; Cu (5.3-44.6); Cd (0.09-0.21); Fe (1789-2896); Ni (9.6-23.8) and in the leaves the concentration of some heavy metals are ranged between: Mn (0.22-0.56); Zn (0.89-1.52); Cu (0.12-0.34); Fe (66.67-92,7); Ni (0.04-3.12) in mg/kg from all sites. The Lead (Pb) was not detected in soil and in leaves samples, and cadmium “Cd” is not detected in leaves samples. The values of all heavy metals analyzed from in whole samples in present sites were under the threshold values established by European organization and World Health Organization (WHO for food and vegetables). The results are an indication that the spiny amaranths leaves had the potential to be used as source of nutrients in alleviating macro- and micro- nutrient deficiencies. The study will bring awareness to consumers of these items about what they are taking and the health implication as well as assist them and the farmers in taking necessary precautions towards proper care of their fruits and vegetables before consumption. This will indeed be a good way of reducing substantial quantity of contaminants from getting to the human body thereby avoiding health problems, with its attendant positive economic implications.

BUILDING CAPACITY FOR QUALITY IN GLOBAL HIGHER EDUCATION

Authors: MICHAEL D. RICHARDSON, CHRISTOPHER J. GARRETSON, ROBERT E. WALLER, PAMELA A. LEMOINE

Abstracts: International society has assumed a globalized emphasis, supported and sustained by rapidly advancing technology. In this swiftly changing environment higher education institutions are expected to offer the highest quality education to a widely diverse audience. Technology will often increase costs without easily measurable or discernible benefits, yet without adequate technology higher education will have limited resources to constantly assess the educational processes used to increase quality and innovation. Quality is an often arbitrary concept viewed as a primary driver in global higher education leading to the development of new organizational structures and systems that will provide quality learning. But building the capacity to apply change efficiently and effectively is one of the most critical factors facing global higher education.

MICRO-LECTURES ENHANCE STUDENT ENGAGEMENT IN LEARNING

Authors: BING LI

Abstracts: The traditional, hour-long teaching mode that is so well-known to on-the-ground students has a little spot in a web-based learning condition. Nonetheless, a shorter and more firmly engaged micro-lecture can help to draw in students and add a media punch to a course. Psychological science demonstrates that students have a restricted limit concerning learning, as far as the time and preparing various stations of data, making it essential that course substance is conveyed as compactly as could be allowed (Clark and Mayer, 2008). This research paper explores the influence of micro-lecture on the learners in the context of China, as shown by these following objectives. Students are encouraged to learn a vast ocean of knowledge via micro-lecture. Students are expected to arouse learning interest and improve students’ engagement in classroom activities. Students are expected to expand their learning content and cultivate self-learning habits during the class session. It brings significant benefits to students, lecturers, and education quality management to keep pace with times in educational reform.

DESIGN OF REAL-TIME ELECTRICAL POWER CONSUMPTION MONITORING SYSTEM IN OFFICE BUILDINGS USING SCADA BASED RS485

Authors: DETA BRIAN PARYOGI, AZMI SALEH

Abstracts: Various automation systems are used to facilitate a human task nowadays. One of them is SCAD (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). SCAD is a system that has three basic functions such as telemetering, telecontrol, and telescope. Thus, it has the advantage of being able to supervise plants located far apart. The SCADA system consists of three main parts namely the Master MTU (Master Terminal Unit), Slave RTU (Remote Terminal Unit, and communication media. The master is used as a communication controller while the Slave is used as executing commands from the Master. Meanwhile, the communication from the Master and Slave uses the Modbus protocol which in SCADA media can use ethernet or serial cable. In this study, a SCADA-based monitoring system design was made by implementing the real-time monitoring function (telecontrol) of the use of electrical power in the office building. In this design, a combination of two sensors and a microcontroller as slave RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) and Master MTU (Master Terminal Unit) were used to supervise the RTU. The communication between slaves and master used RS485, the communication protocol used Modbus with cable line communication. Meanwhile, USB RS485 was used for interface communication between the master and PC (Personal Computer) The results of this study showed that the design can be analyzed and utilized to analyze and monitor the availability of a power outage in an office building in real-time and quickly. Thus, maintenance became more efficient.

Authors: PHIRI KAYOLA MOSES, JACK GEORGE JUMBE

Abstracts: This study was a small attempt that was made towards bridging the gap between the skills that employers are looking for in Zambian Secondary School Graduates and the skills that are being developed in Physics Education at Chiwala Technical school in Masaiti district on the Copperbelt province. The study established that the existing skills gap could be bridged by promoting student engagement in soft skills practices with SNM in physics education. Two adapted lesson plans with similar pedagogical experiences based on electromagnetic waves were used. One lesson plan integrated science in the news on health risks associated with non-ionising radiations and was administered in three grade 12 classes with a total of 69 students at Chiwala Technical in Masaiti district. The other lesson plan lacked SNM and was administered in three different classes with a total of 66 students at the same school. The study employed a case study method and purposeful sampling technique with a mixed-method data collection approach and an analysis approach that was largely qualitative with some quantitative descriptive statistics. The study utilized a student open-ended questionnaire, a classroom observation protocol, and assessment rubrics to collect data. A pilot study was conducted in one grade 12 class in order to ascertain the reliability of both the lesson plans and research instruments for this study. The study established that student engagement levels in soft skills practices were higher in classes where SNM was integrated during the physics lessons than those in which it wasn’t. It also established that SNM increased students’ awareness and interest to participate in soft skills practices during physics education. Finally, it established that student engagement levels in soft skills practices were generally higher during debate and simulation than during lectures irrespective of the classes.

Authors: TIMOTHY ONG'INO OLUCHIRI

Abstracts: The performance of Masonry blocks with partial replacement of sand by sawdust blended with crushed and grounded fish scales is evaluated. The parameters used in this study comprised of analyzing the physical properties and compressive strength of the specimens. Both sawdust and fish scales are by-products of industrial processes and are considered to be waste organic materials. The blocks are manufactured by replacing sand by sawdust and crushed fish scales combined in specified ratios at 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% by weight. Both sawdust and crushed fish scales were subjected to a pre-treatment process that involved washing and sun drying them for 24hrs to remove all impurities and moisture content in them. In the case of fish scales grinding had to be done. Then they were mixed with lime to allow for compatibility with the cement matrix at 5% proportion. The analysis of the mixture was undertaken for a compressive strength for the masonry blocks on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th days. The compressive strength of the blended masonry blocks was found to be 5.7N/mm2 which conforms to the acceptable standards of lightweight blocks. The production of masonry with a replacement of upto 5% fine aggregates for the sawdust blend is found to be viable. This research study aims to assist the construction industry to achieve low cost housing for low income earners.

Authors: KEBBY SIMOONGWE, PATRICK AZERE PHIRI

Abstracts: First year students enter university with low levels of mathematical competencies. There is insurmountable evidence indicating that some mathematics syllabi are not adequate. This shows seriously rippling effects for students wishing to pursue studies involving problem solving. This study aimed at investigating the sufficiency of Mathematics Syllabus D (4024) in preparing learners intending to major in mathematics related courses. The study further aimed at providing explanations for the rampant drop out of mathematics students. It also tried to find ways and means of finding solutions to the scourge. The study followed a primary data analysis and adopted an integral qualitative-quantitative approach. The research question was sub divided into two specific questions and two research hypotheses. The research targeted all the universities offering mathematics in Zambia. However, only two public universities in Kitwe district of Copperbelt province of Zambia were considered. A survey questionnaire was used for data collection. During data collection: students indicated their final grades in Syllabus D and their results from the first year sessional examinations; a 5-Point Likert Scale was completed, and an open ended question on the relevance and adequacy of the syllabus was answered. Data collected was analysed descriptively and inferentially. Chi Square methods were used to analyse quantitative data at 0.05, level of significance. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software was also used. The Qualitative Data Analysis software (QDA miner Lite) was also used. The main finding was that a student’s performance at university in Mathematics differs significantly from his/her performance in Ordinary Level Mathematics. It was also established that a student’s performance in First Year University Mathematics is independent of his/her performance in Syllabus D. Furthermore, results indicated that the syllabus enhanced critical thinking and conceptual understanding. However, participants indicated that the syllabus was inadequate and needed more topics.

Authors: SHYAMLI SINGH, AKANKSHA SINGHAL

Abstracts: Globally, the temperature with its devastating impacts is increasing day by day. This rising temperature for prolonged periods leads to heat wave formation, which is exacerbating due to the increasing climate change. The change in frequency, duration and magnitude of temperature and relative humidity are the manifestations of climate change. Heat wave refers to the degree to which the increased temperature with relative humidity varies and increases vulnerabilities of communities towards climate change. Heat waves affects specifically human health besides other development activities. This study focuses on the heat wave trend analysis associated with the variability in temperature and relative humidity in Delhi for the time period of 61 years (1955-2015). The data is analyzed for the months April, May and June using liner square method. The significance of the trend is analyzed with the help of t-test. The heat wave shows an increasing trend for all three months for the selected period. Through the analysis, it is projected that there may be an increase in heat wave, which might further influence and augment the vulnerability of the communities towards climate change and other development activities.
