A field study was conducted at the Teaching and Research Farm, University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Nigeria in 2008 and 2009 cropping seasons. The objectives were to identify important determiners of yield characters and to determine the correlations between growth characters viz: number of leaves per plant, length of internodes per plant, number of internodes per plant, leaf area index, net assimilation rate, absolute growth rate, plant height; and yield characters namely: panicles per plant, capsules per plant, capsules per panicle, seeds per plant, dry weight of harvestable material, total dry weight per plant, harvest index, seed yield, 100 seed weight and oil yield at 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 and 28 weeks after sowing(WAS).
Teaching and learning activities are challenging area for students and teachers as well. Therefore the aim of this study was to explore the preferences of physiotherapy students in Sri Lanka about various aspects of lecture courses. A structured survey consisting of ten closed-ended questions was developed, and thirty six first year physiotherapy students in the department of physiotherapy, Faculty of Allied health Sciences, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka were approached in this study.
The purpose of this study was to assess third year physiotherapy students’ perception and views about initial experience of PBL in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy soon after the clinical placement. The self-administered questionnaire measured perception of PBL on a 5-point Likert type rating scale and focus group discussion used to evaluate the PBL among third year physiotherapy students of the Department of Physiotherapy, University of Peradeniya. Eighteen females and six males responded (comprising 75% of the total sample). Most students were positive that PBL contributed to improve communication skills, critical thinking and makes fun. However female students expressed that they enjoyed group work and it was effective in fulfilling learning objectives. These same views were expressed during focus discussion, female students made reference to enjoying the group work of PBL.
Adults have different learning styles. Thus the aim of this study was to determine the preferred learning style and specific teaching-learning methods of physiotherapy students. A cross sectional study was conducted on 36 first year physiotherapy students at the department of physiotherapy, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. The students were asked to rank lectures, tutorials, practical and self-study from the most preferred to the least preferred one. The most preferred teaching-learning method among all the students was lectures (61%), followed by practical (27%), self-study (6%) and tutorials (6%). there was no significant difference among male and female students on the preferred VARK mode. In conclusion, the results of this study showed that the educators’ awareness of the various learning styles may create effective learning environment for students.
The demand to the physiotherapy continues to increase, due to the increasing of aging population. The University Grant Commission (UGC) has started degree program in physiotherapy to address this demand in 2007, by providing high school level science students to enter this program based on the grade achieved from the advanced level exam. The aim of this study was to assess the level of awareness about physiotherapy among advanced level science students in the Kandy educational zone and to assess the sources form which they could obtain information regarding physiotherapy.
Allelopathy refers to the chemical inhibition of growth of one species by another. With the objectives of understanding allelopathic effects of sixty seven traditional rice cultivars, a field experiment and laboratory experiments were carried out in 2011 Yala season at Faculty of Agriculture, University of Ruhuna, Mapalana, Sri Lanka. Rice cultivars were transplanted according to the completely randomized block design with four replicates. Each replicate consisted of three rows of rice plants and data were collected from the middle row. After three months of transplanting, plant height (cm) and number of tillers/plant, were evaluated in traditional rice cultivars and total dry matter weight of weeds in 0.093 m 2 (1ft2) area encircled by the rice plant were evaluated in three replicates. According to the statistical analysis there were significant differences in plant height and tiller number/plant in traditional rice cultivars.
