  • The Differences between Undergraduate Education in Civil Engineering in
           China and America

    • Authors: Furong Liu; Raj V. Siddharthan
      Pages: 711 - 719
      Abstract: The paper analyzes the differences between undergraduate education in civil engineering in China and America. The purpose of this article is to improve the quality of undergraduate education through referring to each others’ advantages based on the findings of the comparison of the teaching plan and the course teaching. The comparison of teaching plan is conducted between four Chinese universities and four American universities. It was found that the rate of general education courses at the American universities was significantly higher than Chinese universities, and their contact hours of lab teaching for the same course are also longer than Chinese universities. The comparison on teaching are conducted between the Wuhan University and the University of Nevada, Reno in the United States by considering the instruction of the “Foundation Engineering” course. It was found that American university pays attention to discussions and learning process, and the American students often ask questions in class. The Chinese university pays attention to the explain of the textbook contents, classroom discipline and test scores. According to the comparison findings, this article suggests that Chinese university should increase the rate of generation education courses and introduce student-centered learning mode, discussion sessions, and heuristic teaching methods during classroom teaching.

  • Supervisors’ Experience and Area of Specialization as Determinats of
           the Quality of Students’ Project Report Writing Skills in Tertiary
           Institutions

    • Authors: Mukail A. Olalekan Sotayo
      Pages: 720 - 724
      Abstract: Project report writing is important and compulsory for every final year student in tertiary institutions, however adequate attention has not been given to the supervision of project report writing. Some teething problems always accompany project report writing. This expo-facto study therefore seeks to investigate the effects of supervisors’ experience and area of specialization on the quality of students’ project report writing skills. The population for the study comprised all the 60 supervisors in the school of science, out of which 42 were sampled. One research question and three hypotheses were formulated for this study. The main hypotheses raised were: the quality of students’ project report is not significantly affected by Supervisors Experience and the quality of students’ project report is not significantly affected by Supervisors Area of specialization. The results show that there was significant main effect of supervisors’ experience on the quality of students’ project report and also there was significant main effect of supervisors’ area of specialization on the quality of students’ project report. As a result of these findings, it was recommended that there should be a format for project writing, research report requirements/ guidelines should be part of students’ handbook and mentoring should be encouraged in project supervision.

  • The Role of Bibliotherapy in Reduction of Violence in Arab Schools in
           Israel

    • Authors: Jamal Abu-Hussain
      Pages: 725 - 730
      Abstract: For many societies violence has become a major problem to be immediately dealt with and overcome. Schools, for reasons ranging from their framework, structure, client population and lack of appropriate educational tools suffer from manifestations of this phenomenon no less than other societal institutions and much more than some. This state of affairs leaves teachers, in general, and Arab teachers in Israel in particular, utterly frustrated and in many cases extremely helpless and bewildered. The situation calls for fast intervention in order to find suitable educational solutions for the reality of Arab teachers and Arab schools that function as a minority with its own set of values, standards and distinguishing features within general Israeli society. The objective of this study is to examine the effect of group bibliotherapy on violence among Arab elementary school children in Israeli society. The study hypothesis is that group bibliotherapy diminishes violence among aggressive children. The study sample included 60 pupils from grades one to six in one Arab elementary school in Israel. The results show a decline in the level of violence among aggressive children that went through bibliotherapy, in comparison with aggressive children that did not receive bibliotherapy. Results suggest that school violence can be mitigated significantly by use of appropriate teacher training programs. Lack of such training and the experience it furnishes may encourage a violent and dangerous environment for the pupils. The program furnished teachers with a tool for successful handling of the violence.

    • Pages: 731 - 735
      Abstract: This study focuses on environmental education in school, based on a work project with a laboratorial component. Thus, it is intended to disclose part of a wider research on the evaluation of an intervention project in the local environment, developed by students of a secondary school in the north of Portugal. The research is qualitative in nature, and it is focused on the discursive textual analysis of the report made by the coordinator of a school project and in the reports of students. The results show more awareness by young people, despite some difficulties in scientific writing and dissemination of results. Overall, there is a positive assessment of the project, the deepening of students´ scientific literacy and their commitment to a sustainable development of the local environment.

    • Authors: Seyed Mostafa Seyed Askari; Amrolah Rozbehi, Bahareh Bahmanbijari, Jamileh Mahdavinia, Amin Beigzadeh, Habibolah Rezaei
      Pages: 736 - 740
      Abstract: Introduction: Training needs assessment is the first step in implementation and development of educational programs. The aim of this study was to determine the educational needs of education experts in Kerman University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Kerman University of Medical Sciences in 2015. The study sample included all education experts (N=45). A valid and reliable questionnaire was used to collect data. In order to analyze data, descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (Pearson and ANOVA) were applied. SPSS version 21 was used for data analysis. Results: Findings showed that regarding technical, conceptual and human skills, the educational needs of experts were over the average level. There was not a significant difference between years of experience and age. Conversely, we could observe a significant difference between type of employment and educational needs (F=3.43, p=0.43). Conclusion: Education experts need to participate in training courses regarding technical, perceptual and human skills. This is more prominent about human skills. In order to enhance knowledge and skills of education experts, we suggest holding educational courses for education experts.

  • The Construction of Knowledge and Teachers' Professional Identities in the
           Context of Globalization

    • Authors: Fernando Manuel Ferreira Rodrigues Silva
      Pages: 741 - 748
      Abstract: This article aims to analyze new ways of building teachers' identities, marked by the globalization process and its impact on education, considering the place occupied by ‘knowledges’, due to the occurrence of some uneasiness regarding current educational policies. In the collection of data, in a geographical area named 'Oporto', a methodological approach of mixed character was used by applying a questionnaire to secondary school teachers of Economics and Accounting as well as semi-directive interviews to key informants of the professional and educational field. The analysis of the questionnaire data shows that the identity configurations vary by sex, basic training, length of service (age) and type of professional insertion. The analysis of the interviews, in turn, reveals that the personal training of teachers is a key issue for education and for the educational system, and the participants identified ways of building new identity configurations.

           Engagement

    • Authors: Muhammad Tanveer Afzal; Nazia Fardous
      Pages: 749 - 751
      Abstract: Use of technology has revolutionized our society. Social media is the form of technology which is greatly influencing our social life. Education is a social process and social media can effectively be used in teaching learning process. The aim of this study was to find out the students preference of technology (Skype, Face book, Twitter, Whatsapp and mobile SMS) usage for their learning engagement (teachers notes, quizzes and feedback). All the undergraduate students of public colleges of district Sialkot were selected as the population of this study while 67 students were randomly selected as the sample of this study. The researchers employed the mixed method to explore the learners preferences regarding engagement in which questionnaire as a quantitative tool and interview a qualitative tool to triangulate the data were used. The results of this study indicated that students were well aware of the use of social media in teaching and learning process. Skype was most preferred media of students learning engagement. Facebook was the second preferred media for students learning engagement while whatasapp, mobile sms and twitter were the least preferred media for students learning engagement. Therefore, the researchers recommend that before the integration of the technological applications in the learning process a careful analysis of the social media may be performed. On the basis of this data the preferred media is Skype usage. Now it’s up to the technical experts to consider the different applications of Skype in learning process.
