  • The Contributions of Temperament Characteristics to Attachment in
           6-Year-Old Children

    • Authors: İsa Kaya
      Abstract: The aim of the current study is to investigate whether 6-year-old children’s temperament predict their level of attachment. The study has a descriptive design. During the Spring term of the academic year 2017-2018, 59 children (60-72-month old) and their mothers in City of Tekirdağ (Süleymanpaşa District) volunteered to participate in the study. Demographics Form, Incomplete Stories with Doll Family and Short Temperament Scale for Children were used for the data collection. Descriptive statistics were performed to summarize the ISDF and STSC scores in the first step of the data analysis. A multiple linear regression was carried out and attachment scores and temperament sub-dimension scores were assigned as the dependent and independent variables, respectively. Multiple linear regression analyses revealed that the independent variables in the model predicted 16% of the dependent variable (R2 = .157), which meant that the children’s temperament predicted 16% of their attachment levels. Reactivity, sociability, rhythmicity and the linear combination of children’s reactivity, persistence, sociability and rhythmicity did not predict children’s attachment, but persistence did.

  • Creative Economy Teaching and Learning–A Collaborative Online
           International Learning Case

    • Authors: Aparna Katre
      Abstract: Culture plays a central role in the creative economy, not only in terms of developing creative products and services but also in terms of shaping the processes by which products are crafted. Among various pedagogical approaches for the development of creative products, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) emerges as a promising vehicle. Educators can leverage audio, visual, and written communications technologies to connect learners from geographically distant cultures and place culture at the center of the creative product development processes. The University of Minnesota Duluth’s introductory class on cultural entrepreneurship, CUE 1001, hosted a semester-long COIL project with Ocean University of China’s Cultural Industries Management program to facilitate such innovation in cross-cultural teams. An ex-post evaluation of the project suggests that learners can appreciate the overall significance of culture when conceptualizing creative services and products. They develop an intercultural mindset and acquire the tools to work effectively in cross-cultural settings. Institutions of higher education can leverage COIL in a variety of domains, while studies comparing traditional and COIL-based approaches can further add to the body of knowledge regarding intercultural awareness and the internationalization of learning in higher education.

  • Discovering the Relationships Between Perceived Emotional Value, City and
           Friend Attachment, School ID, WOM and Educational Satisfaction: A
           Structural Research for University Students

    • Authors: Hüseyin Köse
      Abstract: Rapid transformations in higher education in recent years have made deeper researches about student-university relationship mandatory. Regarding the subject, Anderson, Sullivan, and Swidler (1993) stated that students who are the consumers of universities will have very important benefits for higher education institutions in determining the factors related to education satisfaction. So, the aim of this research is designed to determine the relationships between university students’ satisfaction with education, the emotional value they perceive, school identity, city attachment and positive WOM behavior. For the relevant purpose, 366 university students were reached online. The empirical data obtained were analyzed with a two-step approach (measurement and structural) in line with the basic methodological principles of SEM. Acceptance of all hypotheses created within the scope of the structural model proved empirical relationships between the related structures. The research has provided new perspectives to the ongoing discussions in the related literature by proving the direct or indirect effects of structures such as city attachment, emotional value, and school identity on university satisfaction. The results provided tips for professionals in the field to create educational satisfaction.

  • Teaching Educational Psychology in an International Setting: Exploring the
           Finnish Education System

    • Authors: Tim Pressley
      Abstract: The emphasis of this paper is on the importance of teaching teacher preparation courses, specifically educational psychology, through a study abroad trip to Finland. This experience allowed American preservice teachers to see theories applied in an international setting while also allowing preservice teachers to compare the United States education system to the Finnish educational system. The current study includes sixteen female, preservice teachers’ perceptions of the trip. Development of the activities abroad occurred with a Finnish university and included multiple school visits, panel discussions, and guest lectures. These experiences allowed for full immersion in the Finnish education system. The data include observations, student papers, and student survey responses, which present changes in students’ views of education, views of the Finnish education system, and the application of theories in a real-world setting. This experience not only provided preservice teachers with an opportunity to see one of the best educational systems in the world but also pushed the preservice teachers to rethink how teaching and learning can look in a classroom.

  • Graduate Students Academic Persistence: Academic and Social Integration
           Intertwined with Self-Directed Learning

    • Authors: Moi Mooi Lew
      Abstract: This study aimed to explore influential personal factors that could affect graduate students’ academic persistence. Data were collected with an online questionnaire and one-on-one interviews. The findings indicated that graduate students had integrated into the academic environment and established a positive relationship with advisors and program coordinators. Participants have limited social interactions with classmates. This factor decreased the importance of social integration on persistence. Data indicated that participants’ self-directed learning readiness was moderately high. This study suggests that these three personal factors are intertwined in influencing graduate students’ decision to persist in the academic programs.
