TEACHING WITH HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES is very important whether it’s qualitative or quantitative research. It allows students to apply the new concepts immediately. By the time the class is over, students should be done with their research. Don’t teach for just memorization sake; teach for application. Make sure students take one step at a time and they receive timely constructive feedback as they go. By the way, many is the books on this site have hands-on activities.
