  • The Role of Technology Integration in the Development of 21st Century
           Skills and Competencies in Life Sciences Teaching and Learning

    • Authors: Sam Ramaila, Anwar Junior Molwele
      First page: 9
      Abstract: Development of 21st century skills and competencies in teaching and learning remains a key strategic imperative. Coherent development of skills and competencies requires adoption of innovative pedagogical strategies. Technology integration can be harnessed to foster effective teaching and learning. The study examined the role of technology integration in the development of 21st century skills and competencies in Life Sciences teaching and learning. The empirical investigation adopted an explanatory sequential mixed method design and involved 15 purposively selected teachers from five South African suburban schools. The study is underpinned by social constructivism as the underlying theoretical framework. Quantitative data was collected through the administration of a survey questionnaire with the participants while qualitative data was collected through semi-structured interviews. Technology integration was perceived to promote the acquisition of 21st century skills and competencies in Life Sciences teaching and learning. In particular, the teachers indicated that technology integration facilitates the development of skills such as communication, critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving and computational thinking. In addition, technology integration was largely perceived to create exciting teaching and learning environment which fosters the enhancement of academic achievement and motivation of learners. Theoretical implications for technology-enhanced teaching and learning are discussed.

  • The Impact of the Pandemic on Teachers' Attitudes toward Online

    • Authors: Irina Rotnitsky, Roman Yavich, Nitza Davidovich
      First page: 18
      Abstract: The pandemic affected the most on the student population in the shortest time. The number of students whose studies were discontinued in March 2020 was about 300 million. The number reached to 1.6 billion on April 2020. To provide basic education for the students during the pandemic, many countries transferred to a mandate of distance learning for the education system. Use of different platforms for distance learning has helped reduce learning gaps. The Corona virus has forced educational systems to enter in a mode of digital transformation and to leave physical classrooms. The impact of this situation was felt at every level of the education system, from kindergartens to universities. This situation creates not only challenges, but many opportunities. Learning in the global open space creates new learning environments and the use of new learning materials.A case study was conducted in Israel. Self-prepared questionnaires were given to 123 educators who teach in elementary schools, middle schools and high schools Teachers who participated in case study teach exact sciences (mathematics, physics, science, and technology), multi-text subjects (language, literature and history) and foreign languages (Arabic and English). The purpose of the case study is to examine the habits of using tools for distance learning, to examine whether there is a difference in the habits of using technological tools between teachers at different age groups, to examine teachers' attitudes to distance learning assessment tools and to examine teachers' recommendations for different subjects and different age groups.The findings indicate that middle school and high school teachers prefer close help and support during online learning. High school and middle school teachers would prefer to continue distance learning even when face-to-face teaching is possible, unlike teachers who teach in elementary schools who prefer face-to-face teaching. The recommendations of high school teachers also indicated that it is necessary to increase the support system during online learning. When we examined the differences between the different subjects, we saw that teachers of science and mathematics subjects feel that most students do not take an active part during the lesson. Despite this, teachers that teach humanities subjects report that they feel that students are actively participating in online learning processes. Teachers report that changes must be done in assessment's methods. Teachers also report that during distance learning it is more difficult to follow students' progress.

  • To Tidy or not When Teaching R Skills in Biology Classes

    • Authors: Andrew Martin
      First page: 39
      Abstract: An essential skill for STEM undergraduates is the ability to understand the world by manipulating, visualizing, and analyzing data to make or evaluate claims. Current online debate, without peer-reviewed literature, explores which of two common R syntax environments (base R or tidyverse) is best for teaching novice R users. In an in-person undergraduate course on evolutionary biology, we implemented two coding curricula: one using base R (n = 49 students) and the other using tidyverse (n = 58 students). We compared these two curricula using several dimensions of student success: interpretation of syntax, creation of appropriate data visualizations and analyses,      and an absence of sex bias in performance. A linear model revealed prior experience had the largest estimated effect, followed by syntax environment; sex had the smallest effect. Pedagogical approaches that ensure students have repeated opportunities for practice and that implement techniques to overcome student frustration and anxiety are likely more important than syntax environment when learning coding in biology classes. Furthermore, the small effect of sex combined with the high proportion of females in the biological sciences suggests introducing computer programming in biology may allow females to discover interest and ability that they may not have had if computer programming was the sole propriety of computer science departments.

  • What Should the Future of Learning Look Like' Looking Back, Looking

    • Authors: Donald Ipperciel
      First page: 51
      Abstract: This paper explores a possible and desirable future of technology-enhanced teaching and learning in higher education. It takes a normative lens that defines what ‘ought to be,’ based on considerations grounded in the philosophy of education. In other words, its aim is more prescriptive than predictive. It will suggest we embrace technology only to the extent that it brings us closer to realizing the pedagogical ideals of educability, personalization, and active, experiential learning. This paper examines how these principles prove helpful in prioritizing the technologies worthy of being adopted and how technology can contribute in a meaningful way on all three fronts. In addition to the principles of pedagogical innovation, practical considerations for realizing the future state will be identified. In this context, it is argued that the envisioned future of technology-enhanced teaching and learning in higher education can come to fruition only when education becomes collaborative and course creation builds incrementally on previous educational iterations, made possible through institutional support and collaborative design.

  • Changing Bimodal Grade Distributions – A Missed Opportunity'

    • Authors: Karamjeet K. Singh, Tara Allohverdi, Steffen Graether
      First page: 70
      Abstract: Bimodal grade distributions indicate a gap in learning, where the highest quartile of students is skilful in the subject matter, but the lowest quartile is not retaining course material that demonstrates a good level of understanding. Students in the lower quartile do not necessarily have the same challenges as remedial students (i.e., those that do not meet the minimum course requirement) and should therefore be directed differently. We suggest that it is important to consider which elements of the course can be modified to reduce or eliminate bimodality. We provide here an approach to detect bimodality, explore the causes, and provide potential solutions that could be applied to any course. Our case study is on a third-year biochemistry course where several semesters showed a bimodal grade distribution. While student composition and timing of the course may have contributed to this result, underlying causes that can be controlled by the instructor include the lack of student engagement and academic motivation. Increasing the opportunities to earn marks and receive feedback, adding online components using social media, implementing seminars, and training teaching assistants to lead seminars can help reduce this problem.

  • Impact of a Cohort Model on the American Veteran Transition to College

    • Authors: Cynthia S. Villalobos, Nichole R. Walsh
      First page: 76
      Abstract: Veteran student populations are on the rise across the U.S. due to benefits from the revised Post 9/11 Government Issue (G.I.) Bill that guarantees financial assistance for housing and education for exiting service members. Institutions seeking integration practices for this student population may fail to acknowledge the multiple identities that veterans bring to the campus community and, thus, do not provide proper social support for this unique student population. The purpose of this case study was to examine how one veteran student cohort program provides support for veterans transitioning to their new student identity, and with retention and degree completion at one large California State University. This instrumental case study was conducted utilizing one-on-one in-depth interviews and archived document review to examine how effective the Veteran Education Program assists veteran students at Fresno State. The findings of this research show how students that partake in a veteran cohort program transition better into the broader campus community. As veterans begin transition into a new college student identity, pre-existing identities compete in the reprioritizing process.

  • Effect of Optional Assessments on Student Engagement, Learning Approach,
           Stress, and Perceptions of Online Learning during COVID-19

    • Authors: David M Beauchamp, Jennifer M Monk
      First page: 87
      Abstract: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, courses were forced into an online format as universities paused in-person learning and consequently, students were required to adjust to online learning. The objective of the current study was to determine the effect of optional assessments designed to promote engagement in a fourth-year asynchronous online nutritional science course. Seven optional engagement assessments were assigned and students’ stress levels, learning approach, and perceptions of online learning were assessed via surveys at the start and end of the semester. A total of 79.8% (n=210) students completed all seven optional engagement assessments. Further, 56.6% (n=149) reported that the assessments helped them feel more engaged with course content. Perceived stress levels did not change during the semester. Surface learning approach scores increased from the beginning to end of the semester, whereas deep learning approach scores remained unchanged. Surface learning scores were positively correlated with experiencing more stress from organizing and maintaining a schedule, more stress associated with time management, and finding time management more challenging. Deep learning approaches were positively correlated with students feeling engaged in the course, comprehending the course content, and stimulating new ideas/perspectives. Collectively, this data demonstrates that optional engagement assessments can improve student perceptions of online learning, however, these outcomes are related to students’ use of surface versus deep learning approaches.

  • International University Ranking Systems and Their Relevance for the
           Medical and Health Sciences - A Scoping Review

    • Authors: Adeline Dugerdil, Lara Sponagel, Awa Babington-Ashaye, Antoine Flahault
      First page: 102
      Abstract: Medical and health sciences are disciplines of paramount importance in academia. Universities face a crucial challenge in training qualified health experts for teaching and research in these disciplines. With the globalization of the higher education system, international university ranking systems are an increasingly used tool to assess the excellence of universities and help students and researchers to choose an institution. We conduct a scoping review using Web of Science and Google Scholar to search for scientific literature written in English, published between January 2019 and March 2022. We aim to understand to what extent international university ranking systems are adapted to the disciplines of medical and health sciences. We select any scientific article addressing international university ranking systems and their indicators or proposing a new international university ranking system or new indicators. We include a total of 55 articles. Among them, 10 articles propose a new university ranking system, nine propose a new method to analyze or improve existing international university ranking systems, three propose new indicator(s), and two propose a new database. Almost all articles include an analysis of existing rankings. We find no article that specifically addresses the ranking of schools of medical or health sciences. This scoping review highlights the absence of a specific international university ranking system designed for the disciplines of medical and health sciences. Future researchers could investigate how to develop discipline-specific indicators and promote a university ranking system dedicated to these disciplines.

  • Internationalization of Curriculum in Omani Higher Education: Perceptions
           of Academic Staff in UTAS

    • Authors: Ali Hubais, Muhammad Muftahu
      First page: 134
      Abstract: The internationalization of the curriculum (IoC) has been a significant trend in higher education across the globe. However, there is a dearth of literature on this area of research in the Arab countries, including the Omani higher education context. As the key definition and conceptual frameworks of IoC have not been adopted in Omani higher education institutions (HEI), this qualitative study examined lecturers’ understanding of IoC in the Omani higher education context. This was carried out through the employment of the typology of IoC which was proposed by Edwards et al. (2003). To collect data, eight lecturers in an Omani university were interviewed and the thematic analysis of the data revealed that academic staff perceived IoC as important to the institution. Further, the study reported that there are fragmented IoC practices that are primarily based on the ad hoc practices of academic staff. Initiatives should be taken to develop a shared understanding of IoC at the institutional level and in all degree programs in the Omani higher education context. Some suggestions are brought forward for stakeholders to support IoC and help to ensure the quality of degree programs offered.

    • Authors: Rocio Tonos, Quynh Dang, Shelby Melfi
      First page: 145
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present the Knights of Distinction, a co-curricular program that encourages undergraduate students to plan, connect, and reflect in the pursuit of their academic and professional goals. Knights of Distinction is a program within the Office of Experiential Learning at the University of Central Florida. Its purpose is to help students make connections between theory and practice and that they possess valuable skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, time-management, and communication that employers and graduate schools prize. This program is intended to help students connect with resources through high-impact practices that support student learning and academic success. The program encourages metacognition, reflection, and integrative learning through the creation of an e-Portfolio which showcases their skills and goals as well as their relevant academic and extracurricular experiences. Most current data show that students positively articulate the benefits of the program as they advance in their professional careers.

  • Communication of Family Health History among College Students and Their

    • Authors: Ernest Kaninjing, Sabrina Dickey, Christina Ouma
      First page: 153
      Abstract: It is essential that college students are knowledgeable about their family health history to make informed decisions about health behaviors and cancer screening. In the transitional phase from adolescence to adulthood, engaging in healthy behaviors and communication between family members can be challenging for college students. In this study, the Communication Privacy Management theory provided a framework to examine health and cancer communication among college students and their families. Methods: A cross-sectional online survey was conducted among college students aged 18 years and over (n = 106). Results: Knowledge of participants’ family health history was significantly associated with family health and cancer communication, religious beliefs, and higher annual household income (> $75,000). Being young (< 22 years) and female was significantly associated with knowledge of family health history and family health and cancer communication. Conclusion: Demographic, socioeconomic, and sociocultural factors may influence college students’ level of knowledge about their family health history and communication within their family about general health and cancer risk.

  • Guidance as A Key Factor for Quality Outcomes in Experiential Learning and
           Its Influence on Undergraduate Management Students throughout the Covid-19

    • Authors: Anat Shteigman, Michal Levi-Bliech, Arie Reshef
      First page: 169
      Abstract: This paper presents a study that explores how “field experience” programs generate a meaningful bridge between the “theoretical” academic world and the “real” labor market. We examine this model in a population of undergraduate management students who participated in experiential learning programs via internship-integrating courses. The results unravel the significance of the experience-based educational program during Covid-19, formulating new correlations unique to this period. The study's contribution focuses on three main areas. First, the findings shed light on the academic supervisor's importance in establishing the quality of the program and consequently improving students’ perception of its contribution to their integration in the employment market. Moreover, we found that the contribution of the guidance provided by the organizational mentor diminished during the Covid-19 period compared to that shown in former studies. Additionally, an innovative mediating effect of the guidance provided by the organizational mentor was found, one that generated an association between the quality of the program and its contribution to integration in the employment market. These results receive further validation during the period of the study, when academic institutions were required to show flexibility and adaptation, leading to the utilization of previously uncustomary distance learning methods.

      First page: 189
      Abstract: Situational simulation teaching method (SST mentioned below) is a mature teaching method that has been applied. It has been widely used in foreign language, law, management, clinical and other fields, and has been proved to have good teaching effect. The quality of teachers is the key to improve the international competitiveness of China's education system. With the growth of China's population and the reform and development of education, the training of pre-service teachers has become a public concern. According to the existing research, most of the pre-service teachers have good academic and moral qualities, but there are still deficiencies in teaching ability, management ability and communication ability. .In view of this phenomenon, this paper puts forward a scheme of training chemistry pre-service teachers by using SST method through the way of organic chemistry teaching reform.

      Abstract: This study explored the experiences of peer tutors of a Korean language peer tutoring program at a U.S. university. Using qualitative methodology and gathering data from pre- and post-tutorial program individual interviews, monthly in-program group interviews, and reflective papers, this study aimed to investigate experiences of eight Korean language peer tutors. The findings revealed reasons for being peer tutors, how peer tutors addressed learners’ needs, the importance of empathy in peer tutoring, and benefits of peer tutoring. This study’s results can serve as valuable data for creating, growing, and improving Korean language tutoring programs at universities. Peer tutoring can be a useful tool for enhancing the effectiveness of Korean language education at universities, especially as Korean language learners increase.

      Abstract: University success is impacted largely by the successful transition of students in their first year. This study’s objective is to identify the motives, expectations and preparedness of first-year accounting students enrolled for an accounting degree at the University Of the Western Cape (UWC) for higher education. Students’ motives, expectations and preparedness for higher education have been found to impact their success in their tertiary studies. A quantitative approach was used for this study. A questionnaire was administered to first-year accounting students at UWC during the first lecture of their first accounting module. Descriptive statistics was used in order to analyse the data obtained from the questionnaire.  The findings include that students’ time commitments were aligned to that proposed by the university, that they were motivated by a mixture of internal and external factors and that they expected to grow intellectually as a result of studying B.Com (Accounting) at UWC but did not expect to develop better social skills. Educators should acknowledge the importance of and incorporate initiatives to develop the interpersonal skills in the training of accounting graduates. The study contributes to understanding the first-year experience of students studying at a historically disadvantaged institution in South Africa.
