  • The perceptions of commoditisation and internationalisation of higher
           education in Australia: an interview study of Chinese international
           students and their lecturers
    • Authors: Mark McCrohon; Berenice Nyland
      Abstract: Abstract This paper examined domestic educator and Chinese international student (CIS) perspectives on their experience of the commoditisation of international higher education in Australia. Data consisted of semi-structured interviews with academic and student participants. A Trans-disciplinary Framework derived from grounded theory and the Auditable Systematised Qualitative Analysis tool, provided structure and a method to systematise interview data. An interpretation of positioning theory gave insights into the perceived reality of research participants. Findings indicated that a number of academics struggled in their role as teachers of CIS. Concerns varied from disquiet about high fees to a perception that the quality of the teaching and learning program was lower because of the university’s emphasis on international students as a source of income. Conversely, some international students paid a high price for a Western education and considered success a fait accompli.

  • Workplace harassment among staff in higher education: a systematic review
    • Authors: Marcus A. Henning; Chen Zhou; Peter Adams; Fiona Moir; Jennifer Hobson; Charlene Hallett; Craig S. Webster
      Pages: 521 - 539
      Abstract: Abstract Workplace harassment in higher education adversely impacts workforce productivity and has deleterious health effects on victims. The aim of this study was to review the literature pertaining to workplace harassment in higher education. This systematic literature search was conducted in December 2013 and completed in January 2014. Refereed journal publications from 1994 to 2013 inclusive were identified. The strategy was conducted on seven major databases. A total of 3278 articles were initially screened, and after review 51 refereed journal articles were included in the final analysis. A thematic analysis identified six themes: causation, types, employee roles, measurement, consequences and interventions. The published evidence, mainly from North America, suggests that workplace harassment is prevalent in higher education, such as gender harassment, workplace bullying, and mobbing. This review highlighted issues associated with: (1) confirming direct causation of harassment due to the high prevalence of correlational research in this area; (2) establishing and standardising measures of harassment that would have cross-cultural applicability and validity; (3) the demand for more comparative research to cater for the globally mobile workforce; (4) the requirement for greater monitoring and evaluation of the efficacy of policies and programmes purporting to be effective in dealing with harassment in the higher education workplace; and (5) the need for more contextually laden research to examine the unique nuances operating in countries, such as those in the Asia Pacific region, not well represented in the literature.

  • A comparative study of academic dishonesty among university students in
           Mainland China and Taiwan
    • Authors: Shu Ching Yang; Feng Kuang Chiang; Chiao Ling Huang
      Pages: 385 - 399
      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study was to compare the academic dishonesty (AD) experience of students from Mainland China and Taiwan. Specifically, we investigated students’ current self-reported personal AD, their perception of peers’ AD, the climate of academic integrity and their awareness of AD’s seriousness. Furthermore, we sought to explore the relationship between AD behavior and several variables. In total, 605 students from Mainland China (n = 368) and Taiwan (n = 237) were recruited to participate in the study. All the participants perceived that they were less involved in AD than their peers, and students from both areas ranked the gravity of AD offenses similarly. However, Chinese students generally reported higher rates of improper credit attribution, fraudulence, and falsification than their Taiwanese counterparts. Finally, two regression models revealed gender, perception of peer AD, and awareness of AD’s seriousness were significant variables in terms of predicting self-reported personal AD, and there existed interactions between the students’ perception of peer AD and gender. Witnessing peers’ misconduct influenced males more than females in terms of engaging in AD for both Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese students.

  • A multilevel analysis of teacher and school academic optimism in Taiwan
           elementary schools
    • Authors: Jason Hsinchieh Wu; Chunn-Ying Lin
      Abstract: Abstract Research on teacher and school academic optimism has abounded ever since these two constructs were confirmed and shown to have positive effects on student achievement. However, one overlooked research question is the nested association between teacher and school academic optimism. This study intends to fill this gap by using hierarchical linear modeling to empirically test the relationship between individual teacher academic optimism and collective school academic optimism. By using the data from 1073 teachers in 102 schools in Taiwan, the results show that around 10% of variance in teacher academic optimism came from school level, and that school academic optimism explained nearly all of the between-school variance as it overpowered a number of school contextual variables, such as percentage of minority students and student achievement, in predicting variation in teacher academic optimism. The implications of these findings for future research are discussed.

  • Training preparation and the professional development of principals in
           Henan Province, China: formal and informal learning
    • Authors: Na Jiang; Bambang Sumintono; Corinne J. Perera; Alma Harris; Michelle S. Jones
      Abstract: Abstract Principal preparation and training is generally viewed as an important contributor to school and system improvement. While the international evidence based on leadership and leadership development is extensive, contemporary accounts of principal preparation in a number of Asian countries are not widespread. This article outlines the findings from a small-scale, exploratory investigation of principal preparation and training in one province in China. Open-ended questionnaire and interview data were collected from a sample of secondary school principals in Henan Province in China, as part of a larger comparative study. The findings show that while principals in this province appreciate their formal training, they also seek out other sources of informal preparation to assist them in their fulfilling their many obligations and responsibilities. The data also highlight that many principals in China are finding the demands of their formal leadership role very challenging, particularly in delivering, contemporary reforms such as the new curriculum. The article concludes by proposing that for principals in China, there are some contradictions and tensions associated with the current demands of this leadership role.

  • Development of pre-service teachers’ teaching self-efficacy beliefs
           through an online community of practice
    • Authors: Didem Inel Ekici
      Abstract: Abstract This explanatory research uses a mixed method design to investigate the effect of using an online community of practice within teaching practices on science and math pre-service teachers’ teaching self-efficacy beliefs. 102 science and math pre-service teachers participated in the research. “Teaching Self-Efficacy Belief Scale” and “The Questionnaire on Opinions about Using Online Communities of Practice within Teaching Practices” were the data collection tools of the study. Results showed that online communities of practice affected pre-service teachers’ teaching self-efficacy beliefs significantly and positively. Qualitative data of the research also supported this positive change. Science and math pre-service teachers mentioned several benefits of online communities of practice, such as sharing, recognizing common problems, freely expressing themselves, making comparison, realizing their shortcomings, and benefiting from the experiences of others. However, research findings also showed that online communities of practice have some limitations such as the lack of expressions of sincerity, the need for internet access, the need for additional time, and anxiety when it comes to criticism.

  • Barriers to inclusive higher education in Thailand: voices of blind
           students
    • Authors: Theeraphong Bualar
      Abstract: Abstract Higher education for disabled people is an important factor that can improve their living standards in the long run but, in Thailand, little is known about the interplay between inclusive higher education practices and disabled students. This article, therefore, sets forth a qualitative method for investigating barriers that affect the inclusive higher education participation of blind students. Findings drawn from face-to-face interviews with 12 blind students clearly indicate that unfriendly physical environments on campus, lecturers’ inaccurate understanding of inclusive education, and inclusive higher education policy inconsistencies limit their active learning opportunities. The author recommends that senior university administrators introduce sharply tailored interventions to adopt universal design concepts, appropriate academic adjustments, and campus-wide inclusive practices that contribute to supporting the educational achievement of blind students.

  • Assessing the performance of classical test theory item discrimination
           estimators in Monte Carlo simulations
    • Authors: Diego A. Luna Bazaldua; Young-Sun Lee; Bryan Keller; Lauren Fellers
      Abstract: Abstract The performance of various classical test theory (CTT) item discrimination estimators has been compared in the literature using both empirical and simulated data, resulting in mixed results regarding the preference of some discrimination estimators over others. This study analyzes the performance of various item discrimination estimators in CTT: point-biserial correlation, point-biserial correlation with item excluded from the test total score, biserial correlation, phi coefficient splitting total score using the median, and discrimination index. For this study, data were generated from unidimensional logistic item response theory (IRT) models with one and two parameters. The factors considered in the study were test length, intervals for item difficulty and item discrimination parameters, as well as the composition of one or two groups of the examinees with specific ability distribution parameters. Results indicate that the biserial coefficient was most highly correlated with the IRT discrimination parameter across different simulation conditions. The degree of comparability among estimators and estimator invariance varied across conditions.

  • An investigation of twenty-first century learners’ competencies in
           China
    • Authors: Huiying Cai; Xiaoqing Gu; Lung-Hsiang Wong
      Abstract: Abstract This paper reports a study on developing an assessment inventory of Chinese learners’ competencies as needed for the twenty-first century. In creating the instrument, three relevant twenty-first century competency frameworks were referenced: from the OECD, the European Council, and the USA. The preliminary version of this instrument, which consists of 55 items, was administered to 732 Shanghai students from three types of K-12 schools. To investigate the factors and the structure of the competencies that young Chinese learners’ in the twenty-first century should possess, exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modeling were employed. This resulted in a selection of 42 items in seven categories. These were conceptions of learning, competencies in ICT, problem solving, communication, critical thinking, cross-cultural communication, and advanced-level literacy. Based on these findings, the status of students’ twenty-first century competencies in Shanghai, were investigated in relation to gender, region, and grade. The implications of the findings were discussed, such as balancing the learning resource and teacher deployment in differently developed regions, as well as guiding the implementation of a competency-based curriculum in China.

    • Authors: Yunsoo Lee; Heh Youn Shin; Jiwon Park; Woocheol Kim; Daeyeon Cho
      Abstract: Abstract Numerous studies on employee engagement in the HRD (human resource development) field have contributed to the promotion of employee engagement in organizations, yet issues and challenges remain. The purpose of this study is to investigate how employee engagement has been discussed in four representative HRD journals: Human Resource Development Review (HRDR), Human Resource Development International (HRDI), Human Resource Development Quarterly (HRDQ), and Advances in Developing Human Resources (ADHR). We conduct a literature review based on Torraco’s (Hum Resour Dev Rev 4(3):356–367, 2005) framework, resulting in the selection of 24 articles for further review: 10 empirical articles and 14 conceptual articles. These articles are then classified, summarized, and synthesized by year of publication, research type and aim, and analysis of findings. Based on the results of the literature review, we analyze and identify the current state of employee engagement research in the HRD field and suggest implications for HRD scholars and practitioners.

  • A comparative study of the liberal arts tradition and Confucian tradition
           in education
    • Authors: Baoyan Cheng
      Abstract: Abstract In contrast to the continued decline and bleak future of liberal arts education and liberal arts colleges in Europe and America, there has been a revival of the liberal arts model in Asian countries in recent years. This paper compares the liberal arts tradition of education in the West and Confucian tradition of education in the East, in the aspects of educational goal, curriculum, and pedagogy, as well as the way both traditions are institutionalized. It makes connections between these humanistic approaches to demonstrate the common ground for the education of mankind: human beings need to develop meaning for life and to be able to relate to others in order to have a fulfilling life, and highlights the importance of such humanistic approaches as liberal arts education and the Confucian tradition in an increasingly utilitarian and vocation-oriented world.

           Malaysian academic context
    • Authors: Majid Ghasemy; Sufean Bin Hussin; Megat Ahmad Kamaluddin Bin Megat Daud; Ahmad Zabidi Bin Abdul Razak; Mohd Jamil Bin Maah
      Abstract: Abstract This study was undertaken to determine the extent to which leadership capabilities and managerial competencies explain leadership performance in Malaysian Higher Education context. Data were collected from academic leaders in 25 public and private universities and colleges using a few previously developed scales in Malaysian context. Next, the collected data through 368 surveys were screened thoroughly prior to the main analysis. A variance-based structural equation modeling approach was adopted and SmartPLS 3 was used to analyze the data, followed by running finite mixture segmentation and importance-performance map analysis. The results did disclose unobserved heterogeneity within the data. Through the study, two models namely low-current-tenure leaders and high-current-tenure leaders models were developed. Moreover, role-specific competency and change-oriented capability were identified as the major areas of improvement to be addressed by managerial activities based on low-current-tenure leaders and high-current-tenure leaders models, respectively.

  • Perceived teaching practice and its prediction of student engagement in
           Singapore
    • Authors: Wenshu Luo
      Abstract: Abstract This study examined teaching practice in Singapore mathematics classrooms and its prediction of student engagement. A large sample of Singapore Secondary 2 students first reported perceived teaching practice in their mathematics classrooms in Term 1 and their engagement in mathematics study in Term 2. Based on Rasch analysis of teaching practice, it was found that in general students perceived their mathematics teachers to be more learning-focused supportive than performance-focused controlling. Boys and low-achieving students from the normal stream perceived their teachers to be more performance-focused controlling. Hierarchical linear modeling found that at student level, students who perceived their teachers to be more performance-focused controlling reported higher classroom disruption, disorganization, and metacognitive self-regulation, and students who perceived their teachers to be more learning-focused supportive reported higher classroom attention and metacognitive self-regulation. At class level, perceived performance-focused teacher control positively predicted students’ disorganization. In addition, this study also found some cross-level interactions on classroom disruption. Theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.

  • Talk, silence and anxiety during one-to-one tutorials: A cross-cultural
           comparative study of Japan and UK undergraduates’ tolerance of silence
    • Authors: Jim King; Atsuko Aono
      Abstract: Abstract This paper discusses the issue of tolerance of silence within university tutorials from a cross-cultural, comparative perspective. A mixed methods, quasi-experimental approach was employed to measure the length of silence which individual students from samples in Japan and the UK tolerated during a one-to-one staged encounter with their instructor. The comparison groups consisted of two first-year intact classes, one in Japan (n = 20) and one in the UK (n = 15), both of whom were studying for a Bachelor degree in English. During the tutorial encounter, the instructor refrained from speech from a set point in the meeting. Participants’ reactions to the period of silence which ensued were examined in detail using non-verbal coding and their length of silence tolerance was measured precisely. Contrary to the popular notion of the silent ‘East’ versus the garrulous ‘West’, the study’s quantitative findings revealed there was no significant difference in the length of silence students from both groups could tolerate during tutorials. Furthermore, self-reported feelings of discomfort during the silence were relatively high for both Japanese and UK participants, but length of silence was not found to be correlated with degree of discomfort. Qualitative data were collected from retrospective interviews examining what participants were thinking and feeling whilst the silent encounter was in progress. Testimony illustrating acute feelings of anxiety on the part of both UK and Japanese students was the primary theme to emerge in this phase of data collection. We propose the construct situational silence anxiety to describe such feelings of apprehension during situated encounters in which talk is expected but does not occur.

  • A review of research on teacher efficacy beliefs in the learner-centred
           pedagogy context: Themes, trends and issues
    • Authors: Wei Ching Lee; Victor Der-Thanq Chen; Li-Yi Wang
      Abstract: Abstract Accompanying the trend of schools moving from teacher-centred to learner-centred pedagogy (LCP) practices, researchers have argued that teachers switching from the one to the other may as a result make changes in their personal judgement of their own teaching competency. This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of recent studies of teacher efficacy beliefs (TEB) in relation to the LCP context. We have adopted a grounded approach to review 34 published papers between January 2009 and April 2016. Six themes were identified from our analysis of the findings of these studies to delineate how TEB has been studied in the LCP context. By a comparison with other two influential reviews on TEB research, we have also identified three trends and five issues in TEB research in LCP context. Future research directions are proposed with the intent to engage researchers sharing the same interest in this field.

  • Research on the relation the characteristics of the faculty and the
           commitment to continuous improvement of motivations and student study
           processes
    • Authors: Kun-Dang Chen; Ping-Kuo Chen
      Abstract: Abstract This study focused on China’s higher education system and explored if personality traits were a mediator of the relationship between motivational mechanisms and continuous improvement, and further explored if leadership change was a moderator of the relationship between personality traits and continuous improvement of the motivations and student study processes. In this paper, partial least squares (PLS) was the primary methodology used to test mediation and moderation. This study analysed 350 samples even though a large sample may cause an evaluative error in the mediation effect when using PLS. For this reason, we further adopted the Sobel test to verify this effect. According to the test results, in addition to motivational mechanisms having a positive effect on continuous improvement of the motivations and student study processes, personality traits are a mediator that influences the effect of motivational mechanisms on the continuous improvement of the motivations and student study processes. Furthermore, we proved that leadership change is a moderator between personality traits and continuous improvement of the motivations and student study processes. In addition, we discussed the relationship between mediation and moderation effects of different personality traits and leadership change.

  • The role of social capital at home and in school in academic achievement:
           The case of South Korea
    • Authors: Hyunwoo Yang
      Abstract: Abstract Using data from the Korean Educational Longitudinal Study of 2005–2007, the current study investigated the role of family and school social capital in students’ academic achievement in South Korea. Results showed that while some forms of family and school social capital were associated with increased math achievement, the effect of family social capital was greater than that of school social capital. Results also suggested that similar to parents who play a key role in shaping social capital at home, teachers may play an important role in building ecological school social capital such as collective school norms, which was found to affect students’ academic achievement. In addition, results found some interaction effects between family social capital and school social capital. Specifically, collective school norms were found to compensate the deficiency of parental involvement in school, while student–teacher relationships and academic emphasis had boosting effects with parental educational expectation on students’ academic achievement. Features of Korean education related to the distinctive role of family and school social capital in students’ academic achievement and policy implications were discussed.

  • Environment matters: exploring the relationships between the classroom
           environment and college students’ affect in mathematics learning in
           China
    • Authors: Wenlan Wang; Hongbiao Yin; Genshu Lu; Qiaoping Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract This study explored the relationships between Chinese college students’ perceptions of the classroom environment and some affective aspects in the study of mathematics. A total of 2529 students responded to three measures that were specifically designed to assess college students’ perceptions of the mathematics classroom environment, their emotional experiences and values of studying mathematics. Comparatively, the students had a higher score on the value of mathematics but lower scores on their emotional experiences of mathematics learning, and the characteristics of the classroom environment had some significant effects on the students’ emotional experiences and values of studying mathematics. The eight classroom environmental factors were categorised into three groups according to the nature and extent of their effects on students’ affect in mathematics learning. Although most classroom environmental factors had a positive impact on college students’ emotional experiences and values in the study of mathematics, the effects of two environmental factors, the difficulty of studying mathematics and teacher support, were of particular interest. Given these results, instructors are encouraged to leave more room for student autonomy, to adopt some innovative learning approaches to promote student collaboration and to pay close attention to the difficulty of the mathematics curricula and competition among students.
