  • Knowledge Management Creativity Elements Expected of Academics in Nigerian
           Universities

    • Authors: MODEBELU. M. N; DUVIE. A. N
      Pages: 263 - 267
      Abstract: Knowledge management is one of the strategies designed to tackle various challenges which modern tertiary institutions are facing. Tertiary institutions are no longer expected to live and operate in isolation. This paper examined knowledge management and creativity elements expected of lecturers in Nigerian universities. A total of 200 lecturers from two government owned universities randomly drawn, participated in the study. Three research questions guided the study to reveal knowledge management creativity competencies of university lecturers in Anambra State of Nigeria. A four-point Likert type scale questionnaire of 34- items was used for data collection. Frequency distribution table and mean were used for analysis of the research questions. The instrument was validated by two experts in Education Management, while split-half reliability coefficient values of 0.85, 0.80 and 0.90 were determined. Findings revealed 13- knowledge management creativity elements expected of lecturers for successful performance of their duties; low level application of these knowledge management creativity elements and 13 strategies for effective possession and applications of the enumerated competencies. Recommendations included: Knowledge and Learning Managers should be made available to universities and lecturers by university stakeholders. This will provide tools for creativity competencies development, delivery, reporting and management of training/learning materials. Knowledge management creativity competence related workshops should be organized regularly for these lecturers to enable them develop these skills so as to inculcate same in their students (future organization managers).

  • Investigating the Science Process Skills in Cycle 3 National Science
           Textbooks in Lebanon

    • Authors: Samar Zeitoun; Zeina Hajo
      Pages: 268 - 275
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the level of inclusion of basic and integrated science process skills in Lebanese national science text books for cycle 3 and to compare the basic and integrated process skills across subjects (physics, chemistry and biology) and within the same subject across the 3 years(grades 7, 8 & 9). This was to investigate the compliance between the content of the textbooks and the new evaluation system set by the Lebanese government. For instance, the study focused on the SPS that have been neglected in some textbooks as well as the maximum percentage of each skill. To that end, the researchers used the analytical descriptive method, and content analysis. The study revealed that the percentage of basic skills in the textbooks analyzed for all grades was higher than that of the integrated skills. The study revealed also that there is emphasis on some skills at the expense of the others and there is no consistency in the total number of skills across skills or subjects. Furthermore the study revealed that within the same subject, some skills disappear from one grade to another. The study ends by recommendations regarding reviewing textbooks regarding the inclusion of science process skills in a way to ensure coherence between the content of the textbooks and the new evaluation system.

  • Female Teachers Holding the Position of Principal (Case Study of Females
           in Pursuing Career in School)

    • Authors: Widyatmike Gede Mulawarman
      Pages: 282 - 287
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to reveal the condition of female teachers in the highest position in school as the principal by applying the qualitative approach of case study model. The technique of data gathering used is purposive sampling by snowball method. By this technique, the researcher is expected to obtain adequate key informants. To secure the data validity, triangulation of data sources is applied. The data analyzing technique uses interactive models of analysis having three components, namely data reduction, data presentation and conclusion drawing and Analysis of Model Gender Sara H. Longwee. The result of study shows that there are two factors inhibiting teacher career development, namely (1) Internal factors: Female teachers’ low aspiration and motivation so that they tend to be complacent with the condition achieved so far. Other possibility is that female teachers are worried that the higher position would increase the load and responsibility; (2) External factors: The culture plays a significant role and influences people’s mindset, i.e. the position of head is only held by male. Even if the regulations related to structural positions do not hamper female, due to competition with male teachers and the limited number of positions available if compared to the number of teachers meeting the requirements, the number of females holding the position of principal is still low.

    • Authors: Manal Zeinhom Ahmed; Hasan Touama, Ahmad Rayan
      Pages: 288 - 291
      Abstract: Evaluation is becoming a necessary part of nursing education. Educators rely on evaluation in order to measure the quality of their teaching and to identify areas where improvement is needed in nursing education. The current study aims at determining nursing students' perspectives regarding their course content and teaching methodology. In addition, some suggestions for improvement of nursing curricula were obtained from the students. Mixed methods using concurrent triangulation design were used. Eleven theoretical nursing courses in the first semester of the academic year 2013/2014 were subjected to evaluation by students in which they were enrolled. The instrument used in the study was designed by the researchers; its validity and reliability were assured. Results indicated that content of courses and teaching methods were clear, comprehensive and well organized. Online materials and well prepared and organized instructors who use class time effectively were emphasized. On the contrary, a noisy environment was the most frequent aspect which negatively affected students' learning process.
