  • Naturalism in the Script of an Eastern and a Western Philosopher
    • Abstract: Abstract Many educators look to naturalism as a tool to create a new learning environment because they believe that it can produce an innovative and revolutionary method in the educational world. In this paper, I examine an Eastern, Ibn Tufail, and Western, Jean Jacque Rousseau, romantic naturalist philosophy. I find a remarkable similarity between their fictional characters. Both Tufail’s Hayy Bin Yaqzan and Rousseau’s Emile aim to answer social, moral, metaphysical and educational questions. In this paper, I investigate these romantic naturalist philosophies to determine how these two philosophers use nature to develop learning theory, create an attractive environment, satisfy spiritual needs, and solve moral issues. Consequently, I closely examine their work to understand their romantic naturalist philosophy, which can be used to improve our own educational methods.

  • The Making and Unmaking of a Bullying Victim
    • Abstract: Abstract This study focuses on a video-recorded meeting in which a 13-year old female student, in front of her teacher and parents, discloses that she is being bullied. Through a combination of a conversation analytic approach and a victimological perspective, the analyses center on how the student frames her own victimhood narrative as well as on how the other participants, mainly the teacher, respond. While the student in observable ways strives to portray herself as a genuine bullying victim, she nevertheless, after encountering a series of discursive practices, ends up as a rejected victim. This could potentially lead to a form of secondary victimization, in which the original suffering of the victim is exacerbated through inadequate responses by third parties. Three implications for teachers in similar positions are highlighted: (1) Thoroughly scrutinize your own discursive environment, (2) take every victimhood narrative seriously, and (3) solve the problem without delay.

  • Managerial Decisions to Enhance Student/Customer Retention: The Case of
           Ontario’s Academic Institutions
    • Abstract: Abstract Academic institutions invest significant sums of money to serve their students and to influence their decisions to stay. This study sheds light on the challenge for academic institutions to allocate their investments to keep students and enhance their retention rates. This study aims to investigate whether or not providing academic services has affected the retention rate in Ontario’s higher education market. The variable of academic services is measured through an examination of the effect of providing student services, technology and library acquisition, and scholarships and bursaries. The retention rate variable reflects students returning to an institution for the second year. The results of this study were reported based on examining the responsiveness; first, for all universities together (the whole market), and then for each university in Ontario’s higher education market.

  • Rationale for Moral Education: A Reading in Plato’s Republic
    • Abstract: Abstract While the reality of human existence may appear to be an unfair and unreasonable arena, we humans are nevertheless called on to live fairly, justly, and morally. If a just and moral action and life includes elements of self-restraint, of waiving of what would seem to be in one’s interests, a question may very reasonably be asked regarding the motivation (not in terms of the general social realm, i.e. fear of social punishment or interest in gaining a social advantage) for acting and living justly and morally in such an unfair and unreasonable reality. From a moral education point of view, it may seem that, as teachers and parents, we have every reason, and even a duty and responsibility, to advise our students and children (face-to-face and behind closed doors—far from the general social realm) that, if they have an option to increase their relative advantage without risk to themselves or of being caught (let alone risking themselves for a big moral idea), they should do so without hesitation. Would you advise your children, students or yourself otherwise' If so, why' What is the rationale for moral education in our prima facie unfair and unreasonable world' After showing the limitations of another recently proposed answer to the question, one based on Meillassoux’s ethic of immortality, I suggest an alternative based on a reading of Plato’s Republic. In my reading I focus on Plato’s idea of the soul and suggest an interpretation of the allegory of the cave.

  • Immunology of Language Learners: A Social Psychological Perspective
    • Abstract: Abstract The present study was motivated to introduce a new concept named “language learner immunity”. In doing so, we defined the concept of immunity in the language learning context by paralleling the biological tendency of humans to be immune to the immune system of language learners. The psychological aspects of this study relied heavily on the theory of psychological immunity introduced by Oláh (Anxiety, coping and flow: empirical studies in interactional perspective. Trefort Press, Budapest, 2005). Then, we proposed that the language learner immunity (LLI) was shaped by language learners to maintain their equilibrium in face of educational and social psychological forces in their language learning process. The LLI model was later represented and its working procedure was explained through three main processes, namely threat recognition, response generation, and self-regulation. We also discussed the problems that might arise due to the deficiencies in foreign/second language learners’ immune system. We furthered the study by making the differentiation between immune and non-immune language learners. In the end, the educational implications of this concept were presented.

  • The Effect of Changing Capital-Labour Relations on the Universities: Some
           Interpretations of the 2008 Financial Crisis
    • Abstract: Abstract Neoliberal capitalism has faced severe criticism both in principle and in practice since the Lehman Shock in 2008. The purpose of the paper is to identify and explain how the current mode of neoliberal capitalism redefines and reshapes the societal roles of the university sector in neoliberal capitalist societies, notably the UK and the US in the post-credit crunch period. The paper examines capital-labour relations in relation to the concept of capitalism, which is then interpreted in the context of the socio-economic roles of the universities. This paper argues that the 2008 financial crisis per se has not removed government expectation of the economic role of the universities, which has been shaped in government neoliberal policy and practice over three decades and lately developed in relation to the discourse of the knowledge economy. The effect of 2008 was rather the rise of ontological insecurity, the loss of credibility in degrees and awareness on problematic graduates’ transition from university to work in a secure, managerial or professional occupation, as new dominant political discourses such as ‘lost generation’, ‘youth unemployment’ and ‘living wage’ suggest. This paper clarifies the differences between higher education access and graduate employment opportunities.

  • Exploring Opportunities and Challenges in Parent–School Partnerships in
           Special Needs Schools in the Gauteng Province, South Africa
    • Abstract: Abstract In this study, opportunities and challenges in parent–school partnerships in special needs schools were explored as the researchers’ noted that parents were usually reluctant to participate in curricular planning, learning support provisioning and the development of Individual Education Support Plans. Three focus group interviews were conducted with parents and data were analysed for recurrent themes within an interpretive framework. The challenges identified were related to family emotional stability, socio-economic constraints and the stigma of attending a special educational needs (SEN) school. Since parents’ experience trauma when placing their children in a SEN school, they turn towards the school for emotional support and guidance. However, parents felt disconnected from the school by inadequate teacher knowledge of family circumstances, insufficient opportunities for interaction amongst families and limited school communication to parents. These challenges led to misconceptions by parents and subsequent marginalizing of many families from the school, which further exacerbated their child’s learning problems. These challenges provided opportunities for SEN schools to develop guidelines for improving parent school partnerships.

  • Medical Assistance in Dying: Implications for Canadian Classrooms and the
           Academy
    • Abstract: Abstract The recent passing of legislation decriminalizing medically assisted suicide was a landmark in Canadian history. Since the law’s passage, an average of four Canadians per day have chosen to die using medical assistance. With Canadians embracing this option of death, we argue that there will be moments in Canadian schools when this topic will be brought into the classrooms. In this paper, we outline how children view death both emotionally and conceptually, as well as how teachers can discuss death in their classrooms. The purpose is to provide a brief explanation of the law, an expiation of how children view death, and a framework for how teachers may be prepared to broach the topic when raised in their classrooms.

  • Cultivating Spiritual Intelligence: Honoring Heart Wisdom and First
           Nations Indigenous Ways of Knowing
    • Abstract: Abstract The author of this paper has First Nations Indigenous Ojibwa roots and was taught to honour heart wisdom and spiritual ways of knowing throughout her lifelong learning. The spiritual dimension of people’s lives, which reflects heart wisdom, is an important source of learning and is commonly awakened by ceremonies, rituals, art forms, music, drama or storytelling. When acknowledging heart wisdom, educators are honoring First Nations Indigenous ways of knowing. In sacred scripture, spiritual masters introduced narratives to reveal sacred truths that can awaken people’s hearts. Vanier (Becoming human, House of Anansi Press, Toronto, ON, 1998) gives his perspective about heart wisdom: To speak of the heart is not to speak of vaguely defined emotions but to speak of the very core of our being. At the core we know we can be strengthened and rendered more truthful and more alive. Our hearts can become hard like stone or tender like flesh. (p. 87). Pearsall (The heart’s code, Broadway Books, New York, NY, 1998) further states that “one of oldest forms of medicine has focussed on the heart as the centre of the spiritual energy that expresses our soul “(p. 29). This paper will present an argument that supports cultivating spiritual intelligence and acknowledging heart wisdom within educational systems.

  • Revisioning Philosophy of Education Instruction in Competency-Based B. Ed.
           Programs
    • Abstract: Abstract This article concerns the relationship between classroom assessments that are aligned with “competencies-based” teaching in Teacher Education programs on the one hand, and on the other hand, the challenge of offering authentic “philosophy of education,” “education theory,” or “education foundations” courses for student–teachers who are enrolled in a professional degree and on the way towards certification. Briefly, administrative and accreditation concerns with developing and demonstrating core “competencies” when teaching is considered strictly as a “profession” do not align with more ancient understandings of teaching as a “way of life”—especially when that life is led in some relation to philosophy, or “the pursuit of wisdom.” This article examines the disjunction between these two conceptualizations of teaching; it encourages readers to think about how this disjunction problematizes their pedagogy as “philosophers of education.”

  • Formative Assessment as Critical Pedagogy: A Case of Business Studies
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper reports on a study that was conducted to examine formative assessment as a form of assessment that promotes critical pedagogy in teaching and learning. Using Freire’s notion of critical pedagogy as an analytic framework, the argument is that formative assessment should transcend grading, selection and accountability for learning and elevate each student’s learning threshold. Critical pedagogy is concerned with reconstructing the traditional student/teacher relationship and developing spaces and practices that nurture dialogue and possibilities. The study adopted a case-study research design. Discussions with educators and an examination of students’ workbooks provided insights about how the educators understood formative assessment and how it can be used to promote socially just education. The findings indicate that even though the teachers viewed themselves as competent in using this assessment, this was not evident in their practices as well as the views they expressed about it. They appreciated the importance of the assessment for promoting socially just education but still had some misconceptions regarding its implementation, for example, the teaching of Business Studies. The teachers’ professional understanding of formative assessment as a concept and a practice highlighted the need for teacher development. If teachers are encouraged to examine their practices, this will permit them to embrace formative assessment, and to stimulate students’ interest, and performance in Business Studies.

  • Medium Preferences of Children and Adolescents for Content Distributed by
           the Media
    • Abstract: Abstract Children and adolescents are exposed to a huge variety of communication channels. In this study, we examined the relationship between medium preference and content consumed, and the factors of preference by Israeli children and adolescents, with reference to socio-demographic characteristics. This is a quantitative, mixed-method study with a qualitative element. A total of 345 participants from Israel completed questionnaires, of whom 90 were also interviewed. The findings indicate that the key factors in choosing a medium are availability, interactivity, diversity, and the ability to surf while performing other functions (Internet), and convenience (TV). The leading content are music and video clips, followed by reality shows, entertainment programs, satire and comedy, movies, and drama series. Participants use the Internet most often, but when they can choose to watch certain content on the Internet or on TV, TV is the favorite medium for most content. Some content is preferred by boys, other by girls, some by young children, other by adolescents. Viewing by children and adolescents is not random or casual, but rather an informed choice driven by familiarity with the characteristics of each medium, and by the selection of content that meets their needs.

  • Despite Our Best Intention: Students Relate How Social Promotion Hurt Them
           and What Changes They Believe will Help Them
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper researches the practice of social promotion, where students who fail due to a lack of comprehension of grade level material are promoted along with their classmates who passed. Student and parent interviews, student surveys, and data from students’ graduation records are used to determine that social promotion does not improve the students’ education, instead students who are socially promoted are more likely to dropout of high school, less likely to graduate high school on time or at all, and the alternative practices are needed if students are to be successful and graduate high school.

  • The Polyphonic Embodied Self and Educational Organization: A Case of
           Theory Transplantation
    • Abstract: Abstract Building on Bakhtin’s theories of polyphony and carnival, the article develops the concept of the polyphonic embodied self and uses it to suggest ways of rethinking educational organizations. The article examines a special relation of individual to the collective body, inspired by the grotesque body as a natural part of carnival time in the Middle ages, also allowing for resistance. Carnival creates parallel utopian human communities—and the basis for dreams. The unofficial world was marked by anti-power, by breaking taboos, and the ambivalent laughter culture was essential in the chaotic, but united multi-voiced body of carnival. According to Bakhtin’s dialogic approach, organizations can be viewed as systems of relations among individuals and with the world. The authors treat this as a case of transplanting a theory into a non-native context and reflect on what could be the rules for such an application.

  • Sustainable Transdisciplinary Future for English Majors in Iran by
           Implementing a New Paradigm
    • Abstract: Abstract In order for English majors in Iran to be sustainable for the future world of emerging dynamic changes, moving towards the paradigm of complexity (CP) seems to be a promising option for academic settings. However, any renewal should be carefully studied before it is ready to be implemented. The present analytical paper, therefore, elaborates on some key characteristics of CP, suggests a type of instruction that may be best compatible with the goals of CP: creativity and sustainability, and considers some positive and negative aspects of putting CP into effect. In addition, CP is shown to be a future-focused, transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary, open, dynamic system in which anti-monopolistic ideas, and cross-cultural tolerance and peace are highlighted. On the other hand, it is capable of raising some arguable sociocultural and psychological concerns such as national identity issues and information overload that need to be carefully addressed. Finally, it is proposed that CP is a novel research niche that invites future researchers, material developers, and language policy makers to explore it from different perspectives.

  • Self-Plagiarism Research Literature in the Social Sciences: A Scoping
           Review
    • Abstract: Abstract Self-plagiarism is a contentious issue in higher education, research and scholarly publishing contexts. The practice is problematic because it disrupts scientific publishing by over-emphasizing results, increasing journal publication costs, and artificially inflating journal impact, among other consequences. We hypothesized that there was a dearth of empirical studies on the topic of self-plagiarism, with an over-abundance of editorial and commentary articles based on anecdotal evidence. The research question was: What typologies of evidence characterize the literature on self-plagiarism in scholarly and research journals' We conducted a scoping review, using the search terms “self-plagiarism” and “self-plagiarism” (hyphenated), consulting five social sciences research databases, supplemented by a manual search for articles, resulting in over 5900 results. After removing duplicates and excluding non-scholarly sources, we arrived at a data set of 133 sources, with publication dates ranging from 1968 to 2017. With an interrater reliability of over 93% between two researchers, our typological analysis revealed 47 sources (34.3%) were editorials; 41 (29.9%) were conceptual research (including teaching cases); 16 (11.7%) were editorial responses; 12 (8.6%) were secondary research; and only 8 sources (5.8%) were primary research. There is little guidance in the available literature to graduate students or their professors about how to disentangle the complexities of self-plagiarism. With primary and secondary research combined accounting for 14.4% of overall contributions to the data set, and primary research constituting only 6% of overall contributions, we conclude with a call for more empirical evidence on the topic to support contributions to the scholarly dialogue.

  • Are Gene–Environment Interactions Underpinning the Development of
           Creative Polymathy'
    • Authors: Fares Zeidán-Chuliá; Isadora Argou-Cardozo
      Abstract: Abstract The term “polymath” refers to a person whose expertise approaches different subject areas, to rely on complex packages of knowledge for solving problems. Famous polymaths from history include Galileo Galilei, Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, and Albert Einstein; individuals that have impacted science, arts, humanities, and our society for centuries. However, from a neuropsychological point of view and social perspective, it is unclear whether these gifted subjects developed their abilities because of inherited neurobiological or anatomical differences when compared to average people, or their skills and functional advantages were a result of specific environmental factors or stimulus inducing brain plasticity changes that reflect in cognitive improvements. In this discussion report, we present literature evidence from basic health sciences supporting the hypothesis that polymaths may be “born” based on their individual genetic characteristics but also “trained” by surrounding environmental factors or stimulus. At the functional level, polymaths may have a number advantages regarding creativity, resilience, and versatility. Since educational strategies are nowadays more focused on specialization rather than developing multidisciplinary professionals for the future, one could speculate whether these conventional approaches should be updated to stimulate polymathy in future generations.

  • Positioning Whitehead as a Means to Enhance Social Justice in Education
    • Authors: David R. Cole; Mehri Mirzaei Rafe
      Abstract: This paper attends to a theoretical overview in process philosophy and empirical data, with the intent of providing a way forward for social justice in education. The introduction of Whitehead into the role of an educationalist questions what social justice means and how to enact it through pedagogy. The focus of thought about social justice in education is removed from a human-only activity and repositioned as a global concern that builds upon the work of the new materialisms and post humanism. In times of environmental crisis, the use of Whitehead is a means to enhance the personal, social and global aspects of educational provision, whilst retaining a focus and call to action with respect to nature and everything non-human. Whitehead was resolute that he could avoid human-nature bifurcation, and his construction of ‘process metaphysics’ was to resolve the issues created by knowledge potentially becoming abstracted and devoid of nature, process and/or context. This piece puts Whitehead to work for social justice issues, such as those caused by the injustices of and in contemporary capitalism, whilst recognizing this work must simultaneously attend to environmental and planetary concerns.
