A journey towards professional integration – experiences of immigrant Ph. D. students in breaking down barriers to enter Canadian academiaDownload
This dissertation investigates the internal and external barriers and successes in career preparation of a small group of immigrant doctoral students. Through three cycles of a four-year action research investigation that integrates interviews, surveys, participant reflections and...
This study illustrates a model for the implementation of a “Business-To-Consumer Electronic Commerce Transaction (B2C ECT)” system in a university course following the ISO 10008:2013 standard. Furthermore, this model includes four subsystems based on ISO 10001:2007 for a code of conduct, ISO...
Acts of living with: Being, doing, and coming to understand Indigenous perspectives alongside science curriculaDownload
This inquiry engages with the complexity of bringing Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, being, and doing together; both in K-12 science curricula and research. It responds to Canadian provincial/territorial policies and programs, adopted since the turn of the century, that mandate...
The purpose of this research was to study the applicability of management system standards (MSSs) in a research and development (R&D)-oriented nanotechnology setting. Since multiple quality and R&D-specific standards were found to be relevant in such environments, a methodology for the...
The lack of literature reporting on the use of customer-satisfaction-augmenting Management System Standards (MSS) in health care provided an opportunity to explore the use of one such augmenting (AUG) MSS, namely ISO 10002, for managing feedback in a Canadian provincial health care organization...
Introduction: Integration has been advanced as a strategy for the delivery of a number of human services that have traditionally been delivered by autonomous agencies with independent processes and funding sources. However, measurement of the dimensions of integration has been hampered by...
South Asians in Canada are increasingly using the Family Class immigration category to sponsor spouses from their home countries. This qualitative study examined the steps family-sponsored spouses and their sponsors or family members have taken to facilitate their linguistic, economic, social,...
Development and Integration of Tactors onto a Prosthetic Socket for Tactile Sensory Feedback in Upper Limb AmputeesDownload
Myoelectric prostheses have recently undergone extensive developments in their complexity and movement patterns, yet controlling these devices can be difficult as they lack the sensory feedback provided by traditional body powered prostheses. With targeted sensory reinnervation surgery, sensory...
Interest in microfluidic platforms has surged as an alternative for sample preparation in the past two decades, with the potential for miniaturization, portability, automation, integration and parallelism driving this research. However, it is still very challenging to develop an integrated...
This study develops the water requirement factors for different thermo-chemical and biochemical biomass conversion pathways for production of biofuels and biopower. Twelve biomass conversion pathways based on six biomass feedstocks are assessed. For all these pathways integrated water and...
