  • Examining the Scientific Argumentation Implemented Through a Social
           Constructivism-Based Curriculum Designed for Primary Science Education in
           a Confucian Heritage Culture: A Case Study in Vietnam

    • Abstract: This study describes the improvement of a science curriculum based on a social constructivist approach in order to support primary students in a Confucian heritage culture in practicing scientific argumentation. The former design is adjusted by the application of an adapted model of the learning placemat for argumentation and by the formulation of concrete teaching-learning activities which are articulated with the application of the adapted learning placemat. The practice of a designed curriculum unit reveals that the designed curriculum can support the primary students in practicing scientific argumentation and in attaining consensually agreed knowledge. Nevertheless, the study also shows that primary teachers and students in a Confucian heritage culture do not pay much attention to the activities of qualifying and rebutting in scientific argumentation. The study recommends that further developmental research needs to deal with the refined problem of how to improve qualifying and rebutting in scientific argumentation in the practice of science lessons in a Confucian heritage culture.

  • Local Wisdom as a Planning Strategy and Sustainable Settlement Development
           in ToKaili Traditional Settlement, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

    • Abstract: Indonesia is home to many tribes spread across many islands. It is home to local wisdom that thrives and is preserved in the community. The Kaili tribe (ToKaili) is one of the tribes that live on the island of Sulawesi which is located in the province of Central Sulawesi. This has unique local wisdom because ToKaili is one of the tribes in Indonesia that was formed due to evolutionary development starting from moving to a sedentary lifestyle, to settling which is worthy of study by many researchers in the field of architecture. An interesting part of local wisdom is their customs and traditions in organizing and designing their settlements since ancient times. The ToKaili settlement planning and design process mainly depends on how customary law regulates the phenomena of community life and shapes sustainable planning strategies. The purpose of this study is to reveal the phenomenon of local wisdom To Kaili in planning and designing harmonious sustainable settlements. This study uses phenomenology as a method for analyzing ToKaili local wisdom and finding planning strategies and designing harmonious solutions. It was found that variations or patterns are ranging from micro-scale settlements to large scale settlements that are interrelated and metamorphosed from micro-scale settlements to large scale settlements (From Sou to Ngata bete) Formed by customary rules.

  • The University as an Educational Institution With Values in the Knowledge
           Society

    • Abstract: In this paper, we present a study which analyzes the relation between educational institution with the values of their students, all related with the knowledge society. The specific profile, young university students, help us to determine their prospects in the actual framework and beyond. The research is also focused on a specific country, Spain, although cross-cultural studies are being developed. The surveys were recruited through an online survey, the best way for our target to participate. We conduct a survey in which we elicited the importance of university like an educational institution regarding the knowledge society frame, as well as the values of their students depending on the election of the educational institution. This allows us to determine if the election of the educational institution is related with the values of their students, and if these values determine the election of the university. We try to establish by means of a quantitative study the profile of these students. For this reason, the study reveals knowledge of a new relations in specific variables, determined by the experience lived, which is an area of research that has received little attention to date. The variables to investigate are Knowledge society, educational institution and values (of their students) and its relation.

  • Quality Education Accreditation of the United States and Vietnam's
           Management Model

    • Abstract: Accreditation is a solution for improving the quality of education in higher education institutions. Quality accreditation plays a dominant role that supports quality assurance management in the higher education system. The accreditation frameworks and external quality assurance are different between countries. The United States started quality accreditation very early, so it has a robust educational quality accreditation system, excellent support for the development of higher education institutions. Vietnam has only begun to conduct quality accreditation in recent years. At present, there are still some differences between Vietnam and the United States in quality management activities, but education quality accreditation of Vietnam is approximately similar the United States and carried out in three models: the model of central control of quality assurance of state; model of quality assurance combining between state control with the market competition; and model in which the state primarily leave responsibility for quality assurance to self-accrediting universities.

  • Online Education as a Solution to Managing and Sustaining Foreign Aid:
           Comparison Between the European Cases and Others

    • Abstract: Inbound education official development assistance (ODA) has been known to be spread across regions regardless of geographic proximity. This not only negatively impacts effectiveness to manage aid, but also to sustain aid long-term. This study examines aid disbursement pattern of the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and South Korea, which are all members of OECD’s Development Assistance Committee that allocates inbound education ODA. With the empirical results confirming Korea’s lack of concentration in education ODA, this study recommends establishing satellite campuses as a more viable, operative solution than the previously suggested solution of establishing a specialized agency focusing on scholarship programs. As validated by Nagoya University’s Asian Satellite Campuses Institute (ASCI), transferring much of work to the online platform reduces time and financial costs. Furthermore, satellite campuses are expected to facilitate various means of partnerships among aid donor countries that are implementing similar programs. International collaborative efforts could help improve the quality of inbound education and play an important role in attracting bright prospective students. Thus, donor countries could utilize online education platform to overcome severe geographic obstacles in distance education and increase effectiveness of its inbound education ODA.

           Anti-Corruption Policies in Palestine

    • Abstract: As a result for the official and unofficial interactions between many effective sides on both local and central levels, and as a result for the well of the policies network within its different parts such as the legislative council, civil society organizations, financial and administrative audit office, authors, parities and citizens as well as foreign parts such as the international bank and some donating countries, the polices networks started to develop itself and started to work in cooperation with other parties. The networks accomplished all stages in the absence of the legislative council from 2008 till 2019. However, the result of its accomplishments started with short term plans from 1998-2010, in the last year the corruption law as announced, the anti-corruption commission was established. Therefore, the three pillars of anti-corruption were completed including prosecution and anti - corruption court as a type of judicial independence. The Anti-Corruption Law and Strategy has become a systematic policy in all Palestinian public sector institutions. In mid-2019, the PAA obtained a license from the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education to open the Anti-Corruption Academy for Higher Education, which follows the vision and objective of the Anti-Corruption Commission, which is administratively independent, which will grant a Master's degree and a higher diploma to its members. Thus, we can note the integrated role of the Anti-Corruption Policy Network from implementation to evaluation.
