  • Cross-National Comparison between U.K. and U.S. Higher Education Students
           in Test Anxiety

    • Abstract: A cross-national comparison was conducted between U.K. and U.S. higher education students on the Test Anxiety Measure for College Students (TAM-C). The TAM-C was administer to 1,776 U.K. and U.S. higher education students online. The results of tests of measurement invariance found the TAM-C invariant across country and gender. In addition, results of a MANOVA and follow-up ANOVAs indicated U.K. higher education students were more test anxious than U.S. higher education students and females were more test anxious than males. Implications of the findings for mental health professionals who work with higher education students in the United Kingdom and the United States are discussed.

  • Sportsmanship Orientations of University Students Receiving Education in
           Sports

    • Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the sportsmanship orientations possessed by university students who were receiving training in the field of sports education with regard to certain variables. The study was designed in the survey model. The “Sportsmanship Orientation Scale” was applied to a total of 566 students, selected with the random sampling method, studying at Balıkesir University.The research findings revealed that the mean sportsmanship orientation level of the participants was 3.45±0.63. A significant difference in favour of female participants was observed for the scale as a whole and in the subdimensions. With regard to the variable of department attended, it was determined that students studying in the sport management department had higher levels of sportsmanship. According to the class level variable, it was determined that students in the third grade had the lowest levels of sportsmanship orientations. In the “respect for opponents” subdimension, it was determined that participants who played team sports had higher levels of sportsmanship orientations. In conclusion, with the aim of increasing sportsmanship orientation levels of university students receiving training in the field of sports sciences, it is recommended that more attention should be given to the subjects of sports ethics and values education in course curricula.

  • The Implementation of the Lesson Study in Basic Teacher Education: A
           Research Review

    • Abstract: The lesson study is a teaching practice that was first applied to the educational system of Japan. It is a form of classroom research in which teachers cooperatively plan, teach, observe and share the results in a class lesson. The purpose of this study is to review the effectiveness of the implementation of the lesson study in basic teacher education through the review of 29 empirical researches conducted both in Greece and the world over the past decade (2008-2018). In particular, a. the contribution of the lesson study in mobilizing and improving the performance of preservice teachers and b. the attitudes and beliefs of preservice teachers and their educators on the use of this particular teaching approach. The results of the research revealed that lesson study contributes to mobilizing preservice teachers, improving their performance, and developing positive attitudes and beliefs of learners and trainers regarding its use in higher education. There is also a need for further research on the implementation of the lesson study in higher education, mainly in Greece, compared to the international field.

  • Revisiting the Tinto's Theoretical Dropout Model

    • Abstract: In the context of university higher education at undergraduate level, the model of student-institution integration, proposed by Tinto & Cullen and later refined in some of its parts, has often been used to explain the process of dropout/persevere, and even to anticipate such events. This paper approaches the evolution of the Tinto's model since its proposal and reports an analysis of versions of the model found in the literature. The conducted analysis was directed with focus on how to make the model operational, in a way that it could be implemented by universities as an academic computational support system for predicting dropouts. Aiming at its future computational implementation, the analysis approaches the model in relation to its lack of precise definitions of some concepts employed, the loose specification of both, variables and processes involved and questions the extreme importance given to the social integration aspect experienced by students, for explaining dropout.

  • A Case Study of Chinese Students’ and IEP Faculty Perceptions of a
           Creativity and Critical Thinking Course

    • Abstract: The attention to fostering learners’ critical thinking and creativity skills in secondary school and college students is growing in Western and non-Western countries. This study investigated the integration of a creativity and critical thinking course in an Intensive English Programs (IEP) to determine how the same course may contribute to international students’ linguistic skills and analytic abilities in preparation for college. Perry’s (1970) conceptual framework was adopted to analyze Chinese students’ views of problems presented in a creativity and critical thinking course, and how the same knowledge related to the Chinese students’ prior educational experiences as well as connect to their future studies. IEP faculty and administrator’s perceptions provided an additional perspective into the purpose and learning outcomes of the same course. Findings from this research address a gap in the literature that seeks effective strategies and models for IEPs to foster international students’ analytic skills in preparation for college studies.

  • Beliefs of Life Cycle in the Cultural Life of Ethnic Minorities in
           Northwestern Vietnam in Current Context

    • Abstract: Beliefs of Life cycle (or life cycle - related beliefs) of ethnic minorities in the Northwestern region of Vietnam are the beliefs related to the lives of people in this region from birth to death which carried out through basic rituals such as: the rituals in childbirth, marriage, funeral and rituals of treatment, etc. The beliefs of life cycle plays an important role in the cultural life of ethnic minorities: helping people have psychological balance before the steps of birth – old age – sickness – death in the human life; a place that aspires for a peaceful, happy life and maintains the emotional attachment between generations and with the community; a place that preserves many cultural values with humanity, morality, ethic values and unique artistic values, contributing to the cultural nuances of ethnic groups in the Northwestern region. In the current context, the life cycle beliefs of ethnic minorities in the Northwestern region are having a strong recovery, creating conditions for good cultural values of this kind of beliefs to promote the role in cultural life of ethnic minorities. However, the tendency of recovery both prolix and expensive rituals and miscellaneous cultural features, unsound customs as well as outdated habits are posing many challenges, requiring effective solutions to preserve and promote the good cultural values in this kind of beliefs of ethnic minorities in the Northwestern mountainous region of Vietnam in the current context.

  • Student Evaluation of Lecturers – What do Faculty Members Think about
           the Damage Caused by Teaching Surveys'

    • Abstract: Many studies have been conducted on teaching evaluations and student surveys. The current study is unique for examining, by means of direct questions, the meaning of teaching surveys as perceived by academic faculty in Israel. Senior faculty members at academic institutions completed questionnaires, with a total of 182 questionnaires collected. We employed mixed research methods, beginning with qualitative analysis followed by Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), with the goal of developing a model that reflects faculty members’ beliefs on teaching surveys. The research findings show that the lecturers find that student evaluations are detrimental to their relationship with their students, and adversely affect their teaching practice and interpersonal interactions with their students. In view of the importance attributed to students' voices and their opinions of teaching, the question is how should these evaluations be addressed, Do teaching surveys constitute a reliable managerial tool and a foundation for improving teaching – or should other tools be developed to improve teaching practices, independent of students' opinions'
