  • The Assessment of Leadership Competencies in First-Year Undergraduate
           Medical Students

    • Authors: Grant Hayden Cabell; Isabel Prado, Meghan Price, Meghan Sullivan, Cecily K. Peterson, Anthony T. Fuller, Joseph P. Doty, Dean C. Taylor
      Abstract: This study aimed to assess the views and leadership competencies of incoming medical students and determine whether leadership traits predicted patient-centeredness in these students. Incoming medical students at one institution from 2017-2020 (N=428) completed a Leadership Needs Assessment assessing self-reported ability and the importance of competency in teamwork, selfless service, integrity, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence. Participants in the entering class of 2020 (n=92) also completed the Johns Hopkins University Patient-Centeredness Assessment to evaluate patient-centered attitudes. This cohort repeated both surveys at the completion of the first year to assess for changes in the perceived importance of leadership qualities, self-reported competencies, and patient-centeredness. Participants self-reported the highest competency (mean, SD) in integrity (7.92, 1.19) and the lowest in critical thinking (6.59, 1.12). Leadership Development Opportunity (difference between leadership expectation and self-reported ability) was largest in teamwork (2.31, 1.11) and smallest in integrity (0.97, 1.18). Post-first-year assessments were compared in the 2020 cohort, and statistically significant increases (mean, p-value) were found in critical thinking (0.31, p<0.01), emotional intelligence (0.18, p<0.03), and patient-centeredness (0.92, p<0.05). Patient-centeredness was positively predicted by integrity and negatively predicted by critical thinking. Incoming medical students highly value leadership and enter medical school with a robust self-reported ability level. Our data suggest that integrity may increase patient-centeredness and that incoming medical students perceive teamwork as the greatest area for leadership competency development. Further research is needed to determine the best curricula to develop leadership competencies and increase patient-centeredness.

  • Perceptions on Hearing Aid Use and Its Influence on Self-Esteem of
           Learners With Hearing Impairment in Integrated Settings in Nairobi City
           County, Kenya

    • Authors: Elizabeth M. Thiga; Beatrice Bunyasi Awori, Tom Abuom
      Abstract: Hearing impairment has been linked to low self-esteem in children. Many teachers have noted that a growing number of students are unwilling to wear hearing aids, even though non-governmental groups such as the Starkey Ear Foundation provide them free of charge. The study aimed to discover how learners with hearing impairment in integrated units in Nairobi City County, Kenya, felt about hearing aid use and how it affected their self-esteem. Peter Burke's Identity Control Theory directed the research. The study was conducted using a descriptive survey design. Headteachers, teachers in charge of learners with hearing impairment, parents, and learners with and without hearing impairment were the target population. A total of 90 participants were surveyed, including 8 headteachers, 15 parents, 8 teachers, 51 learners with hearing impairment who used hearing aids, and 8 learners who did not have hearing problems. Data was gathered by the distribution of questionnaires to learners, parents, and instructors, as well as a complementing interview with the headteachers. Pilot research was undertaken in a Nairobi primary school. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the quantitative data. The computer programme SPSS version 22.0 was used to do inferential statistics. Thematic analysis was done on qualitative data. The study discovered that learners with hearing loss had generally positive attitudes concerning hearing aid use. Hearing aid use had a weak positive influence on the self-esteem of learners with hearing impairment as per the study's overall findings. The study recommends that the government provide schools with speech therapists/audiologists to follow up on language intervention of learners with hearing impairment who are wearing hearing aids, as well as encourage collaboration of a multi-disciplinary team that includes teachers, parents, headteachers, audiologists/speech therapists to ensure that they benefit from hearing aid use and improve their self-esteem.

  • Preparing Preservice Teachers by Building Content and Pedagogical
           Knowledge of Integrating Technologies

    • Authors: Patrice Morgan
      Abstract: After the declaration of Covid-19 outbreak in March 2020, the system of education changed from traditional field experiences to virtual environment of online learning. As per the need of time, this paper discusses the methods of online learning that learners and educators use to keep up with the flow of education. With the complete incorporation of technology in the educating system, the challenges and training support provided to preservice and in-service teachers is the vital essence to deliver beneficial impacts. However, delivering education with proper expertise in specialized software such as Google Classrooms, Zoom, TV school, online portals, Microsoft teams, and different social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, also requires learning materials to excel in terms of quality and accessibility. Hence, preservice teachers are being assisted by online forums, webinars, courses, and even degree programs to learn and develop their careers in a virtual context to prepare for their futures.  Current research was conducted with over forty preservice teacher respondents which was consistent with a previous study of over one hundred pre service teacher participants. This article aims to highlight the current pandemic scenario and its impacts on the educational sector in the preservice teacher education programs and to discuss methods and measures currently in use to promote the technological way of learning and how the trainers are affected by it.

  • The Interrelationships Between the Sustainable Development Goals and
           Higher Education Institutions: A Systematic Literature Review

    • Authors: Ana Pacheco; Paula Costa, Jorge Simões, Rúben Loureiro
      Abstract: The objective of this systematic literature review (SLR) is to analyse the interrelationships between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) based on the search for papers in the Web of Science (WoS) and SCOPUS databases. It was found that these interrelationships exist and are significant. The education and skills offered by the HEIs are essential for the development and understanding of the issues that arise and that urgently need to be resolved, namely compliance with the SDGs. On the other hand, HEIs must integrate the SDGs in their internal processes and in the course syllabuses, raising awareness and training students on issues related to the SDGs. Thus, those responsible must adopt educational policy at Higher Education (HE) that raise awareness of faculty and students all over the world to contribute with their knowledge, creativity and skills to the pursuit of the SDGs.

  • Do International Business Students Who Are Studying in Australia Have
           Similar Academic Outcomes' A Comparison of Undergraduate and
           Postgraduate Students

    • Authors: Luz Centeno Stenberg
      Abstract: The paper explores the characteristics of business students studying in Australia. A total of 1907 students (1033 undergraduate and 874 postgraduate students) are included in the study between 2012 and 2016. These students are either from a higher education (tertiary) private provider of undergraduate business courses or from one of the Australian universities studying at the postgraduate level. The paper attempts to examine if there are similarities in undergraduate and postgraduate business student outcomes that could be attributed to country of origin and gender. The paper argues that the human capital pursuit among international business students studying in Australia is similar due to the linkages between immigration, labor market and education policies. These linkages might have facilitated the perceived risk-return relationship of studying in Australia and as a result led to attracting similar (international) students studying at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Ordinary least squares (OLS) models’ results suggest that gender and country of origin are important in predicting success. In particular, being female is positively related to academic success and certain student groups dominate the international students’ landscape in Australia.

  • Effects of Reading-Writing and Think-Pair-Share Strategies on Secondary
           School Students’ Performance in Essay Writing in Nigeria

    • Authors: Funmilayo Mabel Oguntade; Timothy Kolade Akinwamide, Timothy Kolade Akinwamide
      Abstract: This study investigated the effects of Reading-Writing (RW), Think-Pair-Share (TPS), and combination (RW & TPS) strategies on students’ performance in essay writing in senior secondary schools in Ondo State. The study adopted a quasi-experimental pre-test post-test four-group design as well as a descriptive survey type design. The population for the study comprised all the 25 297 public Senior Secondary School (SSS) II students of the 2019/2020 Session in Ondo State. The sample for this study was 308 SSS II students that were selected from public senior secondary schools, using a multi-stage sampling procedure. The instrument used for this study is the Essay Writing Performance Test (EWPT) which was a standardised WAEC question. The reliability of the instrument was established through the test re-test method and a reliability coefficient of 0.70 was obtained. The data collected were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. All hypotheses were tested at a 0.05 level of significance. The performance of students in both experimental and Control Groups in the pre-test was low and did not differ statistically this established the homogeneity of the four groups before the experiment. The result also revealed that it was only in the RW and the combination Groups that there was a significant difference in the pre-test and post-test scores of the test subjects at a 0.05 level of significance. The result also established there was a significant difference in the effects of the strategies of teaching investigated on the performance of the students in essay writing.

  • “Like Walking Them to the Bus Stop, and Then They Still Miss the

    • Authors: Muhammad Sharif Uddin
      Abstract: This qualitative descriptive study explored elementary teachers’ virtual teaching experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data were collected from four participants through semi-structured interviews and focus groups. An inductive content analysis approach was used to analyze the data. The findings of this study showed that the interactions between teachers and students in the virtual environment were limited. The learning outcomes of virtual teaching in the elementary classroom fell short due to the students’ copy-and-paste culture, too much help from their parents, and an unconducive learning environment at home. This study suggests that elementary teachers need professional development in pedagogical and technological knowledge to effectively teach in a virtual setting. Further, parental orientation is essential to make the parents cooperative and aware of their children’s virtual learning.
