In the first experimental study, the learning results were measured by a formative assessment such as in-class activities, quizzes, case studies, etc. Data was collected and measured using a questionnaire that was randomly distributed to the electrical engineering students. It was found that the acquisition of knowledge can be supported by eliciting the use of 2D, 3D images, drawings or illustrations, etc. It was also noted that learners with low levels of prior topic knowledge profited from the computer-based visualization techniques. In the second study, results were analyzed from the summative assessments such as final exams, final practical tasks, and final projects where positive impacts were observed on students’ learning. Overall, the findings underline the “direct” relevance of the quality of knowledge attainment by learning from computer-based visualization techniques.</p> Muhammad Nauman Bashir, Sameera Iqbal, Kamaludin Mohamad Yusof Copyright (c) 2021 iKSP Journal of Innovative Writings https://iksp.org/journals/index.php/ijiw/article/view/167 Thu, 30 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Impact of Effective Teamwork on Employee Performance: The case of the Telecommunication Companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain https://iksp.org/journals/index.php/ijiw/article/view/71 <p>Every company sets specific goals and objectives to realize.
