  • Multilevel latent profile analysis of Korean middle school student
           perceptions of teaching methods

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study explored the heterogeneous nature of student perceptions of teaching methods and investigated the predictors at the student and school level using data from the Analysis on the Qualitative Level and Actual Condition of School Education: Middle School in Korea. Additionally, the study compared the means of creative competencies according to every profile of teaching methods. Five distinct profiles were identified via the application of multilevel latent profile analysis to capture the structure of nested data: the high integrated profile, high teacher-centered and high discovery learning profile, lecture-centered and low collaborative profile, average profile, and low questioning and low discussion profile. Profile membership was found to be closely related to student characteristics (academic achievement, class understanding, academic self-concept, and class attitudes) and school-level factors (degree of performance assessment use and teacher efficacy). The study’s findings revealed that the high integrated profile demonstrated significantly higher levels of creative competencies vis-à-vis other profile groups. This study offers suggestions for the improvement of current classroom instruction practices.

  • The changing intellectual structures of HRD in South Korea: author
           profiling analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Text mining techniques have become popular in many disciplines in the era of big data. Author profiling analysis, a method of text mining, is useful for identifying the intellectual structures of research fields and the latest research topics that did not appear from author co-citation analysis. This study analyzed the changing intellectual structure of the Human Resources Development (HRD) field in Korea by investigating researcher groups, research areas, and relationships between researchers based on research topics through author profiling analysis. Using selected authors’ articles published during periods 2010–2014 and 2015–2019, an index was extracted from titles, abstracts, and keywords of a total 1961 articles. 2670 indexes were derived through the index cleaning process structured by expert verification and expert cross-validation. The cosine similarity matrix between authors was calculated by applying weights to the index, followed by a clustering and network analysis using PNNC algorithm through WNET program. The results of this study advance discussion surrounding the existing HRD paradigm, definitions of HRD, areas of HRD, theoretical foundations of HRD, and previous studies that analyzed research trends by providing additional layers of granularity and an expanded framework of thought across each topic. The findings also suggested implications for academic and practical aspects and further research.

  • Relationships between adolescent smartphone usage patterns, achievement
           goals, and academic achievement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As smartphones are emerging as a common device for adolescent, prior studies have provided theoretical and empirical evidence for the factors affecting adolescent smartphone use. However, mainstream research has tended to focus on the negative effects of smartphone. Even though smartphone use can have adverse outcomes, it may also allow students to engage in flexible mobile learning, gain access to important information about their possible future careers and achieve their personal goals. To fill this gap in adolescent smartphone usage, this study explored the smartphone usage patterns of adolescent subpopulations and the associations with their self-control, achievement goals, and academic achievements. Data were collected from 2341 s-year high school students as part of a larger longitudinal panel study. Three distinct smartphone usage profiles were identified in the latent profile analysis: learning, recreational use, and minimal use. Respondents with high perseverance were assigned to the learning group, and respondents with lower compliance and perseverance were assigned to the recreational group. The achievement goal score was found to be the highest in the learning group and lowest in the recreational group. Academic achievement was found to be higher in both the learning and minimal use groups than the recreational use group. Based on these findings, the implications of this study for research and practice are discussed.

  • Research vs. non-research universities: knowledge sharing and research
           engagement among academicians

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigated the differences in knowledge sharing (KS) behavior among academicians from research universities (RUs) and non-research universities (Non-RUs) and the impact of their differences on research engagement in Malaysia. From the lens of the theory of planned behavior, research engagement is integrated into the original theory as the consequence of KS behavior. Applying a multi-group analysis through partial least square structural equation modeling, 458 academic staff from twenty public universities in Malaysia participated in the study. The study findings revealed that in the RU sample, commitment and subjective norm have no significant impact on attitude and intention, respectively. However, a significant impact of commitment and subjective norm on attitude and intention, respectively, was found in the non-RU sample. This study contributes to the knowledge management perspective among academicians and compares RU and non-RU academicians in Malaysia. A relevant mitigation plan must be taken to ensure that academicians in both RUs and non-RUs share their knowledge willingly and sincerely to elevate the status of higher education in the country to a greater height as a top world-class university. Moreover, an analysis of the implication of higher education in the country as well as institutionalization of education excellence could be achieved through better KS behavior in the South East Asian region.

  • Acceptance of and satisfaction with online educational classes through the
           technology acceptance model (TAM): the COVID-19 situation in Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the current state of acceptance of online classes using the technology acceptance model. The background of the study is the turning point in Korean education in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and speculation about changes in the post-COVID educational environment. To measure the acceptance rate of online classes, a survey was conducted on a total of 313 university students taking online classes. The data were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results of the study are as follows: First, the perceived ease of use of online classes showed a positive effect on perceived usefulness. Second, both the perceived ease of use and usefulness of online classes showed a positive effect on educational satisfaction. Third, both the perceived usefulness and satisfaction showed a positive effect on the acceptance intention of online education. However, the perceived ease of use did not have a positive effect on acceptance intention. These results suggest that satisfaction with online education can be further improved by developing online classes that are easy to use, focusing on the features that are frequently used by university students. In addition, universities should continuously provide training and advice to increase students’ perceived usefulness of online classes.

  • The impact of OECD research on the education system of Kazakhstan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In education, reform and renewal are constant. Policies are continually changing to meet the needs of the times and the society. Political advisors, such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, play an important role among private consultants as policy actors. According to Gunter’s (in: Howlett and Mukerjee (eds), Handbook of policy formulation, Edward Elgar Publishers, 2017) classification of policy actors, the OECD can be classified as a supra-national organization. This paper examines the impact of OECD research on the education system of Kazakhstan. Based on the literature, the authors address two key issues—what role the OECD is performing in education policy reforms in Kazakhstan and whether this facilitates or undermines the provision of public education. The authors focus on the influence of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) as a global phenomenon, how Kazakhstan has embraced this international test, and how, even though PISA has made little or no difference to student outcomes, it is still credited for educational achievements.

  • The role of education in regional repositioning: experiences of Hainan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The intersection between education and regional development has long been a key discourse in educational research. This study used Hainan, the second largest island in China, as a case to explore the role of education in regional repositioning, taking both the economic and cultural domains into account through the lens of history and space. Policymakers from three selected administrative areas of Hainan were interviewed. The findings suggest that regional economic structure and cultural traditions in both the past and the present together shape the provision of education in Hainan, local people’s participation in education, and their education aspirations for their offspring. The people on the island view education choice through a lens of accumulated and contemporary, intergenerational economic, and cultural experiences. This study also confirms the mutual interaction of education and regional economy and culture. Education serves the region via manpower fostering and cultural mobilization. Many policies and initiatives developed to improve regional education are strategic and realistic, but local inhabitants’ voices deserve to be heard and respected for better acceptance and effectiveness of policies. For education to fully play its mediating role in regional repositioning, it is necessary to locate any policies and initiatives within an analysis and full understanding of the region’s complexities and specificities.

           concept maps embedded in argumentation based inquiry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This mixed-method study aimed to compare the academic achievements of students to their use of argument maps and concept maps in learning environments designed for argument-based instruction (ABI). The study was conducted during the spring term of the academic year 2018–2019 with the students of three sections of grade six instructed by the same teacher at a secondary school in the province of Kastamonu. Before the study began, one of the participating sections was randomly designated as the control group, while the other two were assigned as the experimental group. The control group students undertook research interrogation-based activities during lessons and individually reported activities appropriate for the ABI student template for each activity. The experimental group students handled ABI applications. In addition, one section of the experimental group prepared concept maps, while the other section made argument maps. The 5-week study was accomplished during the instruction of the “sound and its properties” unit of the curriculum. The data were acquired via a pre- and post-administration of the unit-based success test to measure academic success. Further, semi-structured interviews were conducted to ascertain the opinions of students vis-à-vis the pedagogy. The obtained quantitative data were analyzed using the ANCOVA analysis via the SPSS software. The qualitative data collected through semi-structured interviews were examined by the creation of themes, codes, and frequencies. The experimental group using argument maps or concept maps in addition to ABI applications revealed significant outcomes in terms of academic achievements. Further, students expressed the belief that argument and concept maps helped them learn and remember the topic.

  • The effects of adolescent prosocial behavior interventions: a
           meta-analytic review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This meta-analytic review examined the effectiveness of the interventions for promoting adolescents’ prosocial behavior, and aimed to explain variability in the effectiveness. Thirty-three studies that used interventions for prosociality targeting adolescents and compared with a control group or had a pre-post comparison were included in the analyses. Across all the studies, the prosocial behavior interventions for adolescents had a small, beneficial effect on promoting prosocial behavior (g = 0.442; 95% CI [0.240, 0.644]). The results of moderator analyses showed that the interventions designed to increase social competence had a larger effect than those seeking to prevent problem behavior, and that the interventions that used reports by others had a larger effect than those using self-reports. These findings indicated that the prosocial behavior interventions promoted adolescents’ prosocial behavior, but with a small effect, and that the effectiveness varied depending on the objectives of intervention and the measurement types. However, this result seemed to be slightly influenced by publication bias, thus the interpretations of the results should be careful. Directions for future research and implications for educators implementing prosocial behavior interventions during adolescence are discussed.

  • Building education groups as school collaboration for education
           improvement: a case study of stakeholder interactions in District A of
           Chengdu

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract School collaboration has become a popular approach for education improvement in global education reform. This study examined the dynamics of stakeholder school collaboration in China to improve public education using a case study focused on an Education Group government initiative in Chengdu, China. Frist an introduction to a global reform for education improvement through school collaboration is given, followed by a review of global reform for school collaboration and Hargreaves and Shirley’s discussion on design and innovation for school networks and collaboration to visualize the framework for the interpretation of the stakeholders’ school collaborative interactions. Then, the school collaboration for education improvement in China is examined in detail based on 20 interviews with stakeholders from educational authorities, the lead and member schools involved in the establishment of the Education Groups in Chengdu, China. The interviews were designed based on a review of policy documents about construction of the Education Groups in Chengdu. The findings revealed that the establishment of the Education Groups in Chengdu was driven by both top-down initiatives and bottom-up innovations, and while there had been some success in improving education quality in the lower performing schools, the stakeholder interactions had been hindered by the lack of policy coordination within and beyond the education reforms. It was concluded that a collective institutional context was needed to foster the shared values and trust needed between all stakeholders and promote the sustainable reform of the Education Groups to ensure education equity and quality.

  • Design, measurement, and characteristic analysis of uncertainty indices
           for education fiscal policies: a case study of China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since the release of “4%” objective of fiscal educational expenditure to GDP in 2012, the Chinese governments at all levels have frequently formulated or changed education finance policy in light of the complex situation of China’s economic development. The policy changes have ensured the steady growth of education financial investment, but also brought a series of unknown or uncertain factors to the allocation of educational resources. According to the text context from the selected mainstream Chinese media in the past two decades, this study creates a newspaper-based policy uncertainty indices of China’s education fiscal policy under the framework of Baker (JAMA 131(4):1593–1636, 2016)'s study. We also apply the EGARCH model to test the robustness of the results. Our findings reveal that the uncertainty indices are highly consistent with the fluctuation of education fiscal policy in various stages in China. It suggests that the government sectors should define the reasonable boundaries of the "tangible hand" and harden the budget in the process of allocating education resources, to eliminate the negative impact brought by the uncertainty of education fiscal policy. Moreover, this study puts forward the research prospect of the application of policy uncertainty in the field of education.

           impact of COVID-19: a social presence theory perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled universities and higher education institutions to largely adopt online teaching to avoid face-to-face interactions. Instructors and students teach and learn through computers, laptops, and mobile phones with Internet connections. This qualitative study conducted in-depth interviews with 17 university students and 7 instructors. It found that student-to-instructor and student-to-student interactions cannot fully establish cognitive social presence and affective social presence.

  • Motivations and outcomes in dual-degree programs: insights from graduate
           scholarships for Indonesian civil servants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The present study investigates the motivations and outcomes of Indonesian civil servants and prospective civil servants who received Indonesian, Australian, and Japanese government scholarships to study for graduate dual-degrees domestically in Indonesia and internationally in either Australia or Japan. A survey was administered to 162 current and former dual-degree students, followed by ten semi-structured interviews. Survey data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, two factor analyses, and a multivariate analysis of variance, while interview data were analyzed utilizing two cycles of coding. The survey and interview findings both showed that participants were highly motivated by the opportunity to study abroad and experience personal growth more so than by career benefits. Further, interview findings indicated that some participants were motivated by the prestige of an overseas education and the opportunity to enhance one’s social status. Regarding outcomes, survey and interview data showed that participants perceived development in their professional knowledge and soft skills through their dual-degree programs. Moreover, the interviews highlighted potential organizational benefits via networking and knowledge sharing as well as the impact of organizational context and career field on participants’ career advancement opportunities. Lastly, utilizing a multivariate analysis of variance, the survey findings showed that there was a relationship between study abroad location and student motivations and outcomes; participants might have been biased and perceived that studying in Australia provided greater personal and career benefits compared to studying in Japan. Together, these findings have implications for dual-degree program managers as well as Indonesian government organizations employing dual-degree graduates.

  • Reflexive language attitudes and language practices among school-aged
           Chinese Australian immigrant bilinguals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the reflexivity of immigrant children in forming their language attitudes (LAs). Considering the special cultural environment of the Chinese community in Australia, which refers to the community’s well-matched cultural powers with Australia, this research explored Chinese Australian children’s conflicting but reflexive LAs and language practices. By drawing on in-depth qualitative interviews and longitudinal participant observations conducted in multiple schools, this study classified Chinese Australian children into four types according to their perceptions and behaviors toward language learning and use and examined each age group’s characteristics. The study further analyzed the mutually influential relation between cultural environment, family, immigrant children, and their LAs. These findings shed light on immigrant children’s agency in forming and reconfiguring their LAs. This is an important addition to the existing knowledge about bilingual children’s language choices, language development, and language education.

  • Influence of differential leadership on teachers' professional ethics: an
           empirical study from Chinese universities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In Chinese society, the teachers' professional ethics have been considered important since ancient times and have been widely discussed. This paper aims to explore the mechanism of the influence of differential leadership with local cultural adaptability on college teachers' professional ethics. A total of 403 valid responses were collected from a questionnaire survey of university teachers in many regions of China, and the data were statistically analysed by SPSS17.0 and AMOS22.0. The results showed that differential leadership positively influences college teachers' professional ethics, and college teachers' professional identity plays a mediating role between differential leadership and teachers' professional ethics. The effect of differential leadership on college teachers' professional identity and professional ethics is negatively moderated by the tendency towards collectivism, and it seems to be contrary to the national culture of Chinese, which is high in collectivism, but consistent with the strong will of college teachers and the current workplace characteristics embodied in the sample investigated. It is expected that the research results of this paper can provide theoretical guidance for the construction of teachers' professional ethics in relevant governments and colleges.

  • A bibliometric review on latent topics and trends of the empirical MOOC
           literature (2008–2019)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have become a popular learning mode in recent years, especially since the outbreak of COVID-19 in late 2019, which had resulted in a significant increase in associated research. This paper presents a bibliometric review of 1078 peer-reviewed MOOC studies between 2008 and 2019. These papers are extracted from three influential databases, the Web of Science (WOS), Scopus, and the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC). The MOOC literature analysis with a bibliometric approach identified the research trends, journals, countries/regions, and institutions with high H-index, scientific collaborations, research topics, topic distributions of the prolific countries/regions and institutions, and annual topic distributions, after which the representative research and research implications were discussed. This review gives researchers a deep and comprehensive understanding of current MOOC research and identifies potential research topics and collaborative partners, which supports MOOC-related future research.

  • Evolution and trends in intelligent tutoring systems research: a
           multidisciplinary and scientometric view

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) are a promising integrated educational tool for customizing formal education using intelligent instruction or feedback. In recent decades, ITSs have transformed teaching and learning and associated research. This study examined the evolution and future trends of ITS research with scientometric methods. First, a dataset comprising 1173 relevant publications was compiled from the Web of Science Core Collection databases (including the Science Citation Index Expanded and the Social Science Citation Index). Then, the publication distributions by time, author, institution, country/region, and knowledge sources were analyzed to reveal the multidisciplinary integration paths. Dataset co-occurrence and co-citation analyses were conducted to identify the most popular research issues, the research chronology, and the emerging trends. It was found that: (a) ITS research has been growing in recent years. According to the Price literature exponential growth curve, this field is still in its initial stage while has high potential; (b) computer science, education, psychology, and engineering were the main ITS research knowledge sources, with ITS social science publications since 2007 being higher than ITS natural sciences publications; (c) interactive learning environments, student modeling, teaching/learning strategies, and machine learning have been the most popular research foci; and (d) the Coh-Metrix, problem-centered instruction, and STEM are the current research trends.

  • The relationship between stress and life satisfaction of Korean University
           students: mediational effects of positive affect and self-compassion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The present study aimed to examine the mediational effects of self-compassion and positive affect in the relationship between stress and life satisfaction of South Korean university students. Questionnaires regarding stress, self-compassion, positive affect, and life satisfaction were distributed to 1,087 university students. Structural equation modeling was conducted to confirm the direct and indirect paths between each variable as regards life satisfaction and gender differences. The main results of this study can be summarized as follows. First, the results showed that the partial mediational model best fit the data, and that positive affect and self-compassion had significant partial mediational effects. Second, positive affect and self-compassion both mediated the relationship between university students’ stress and life satisfaction. Third, the partial mediational model fit the data well for both male and female students, although gender differences were found in certain paths. The present study is significant in that it provides empirical evidence for the importance of self-compassion and positive affect in interventions for highly stressed university students. The implications and limitations of the present study were also discussed.

  • Carving out a hybrid space: a self-study of contextualizing teaching for
           social justice in South Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Throughout the world, issues of justice, equity, and diversity have been extensively discussed and are now ubiquitous in educational research circles under the overarching term, teaching for social justice. The expansion and worldwide popularity of teaching for social justice is promising, but it opens up new challenges with contextualization: situating the global-scale discourse within local and national contexts. With careful attention to the context of South Korea, this self-study illuminates one teacher educator’s struggle to integrate social justice teaching with the nation’s culture and education system. Guided by hybridity theory, the findings provide a detailed description of the course improvement, focusing on how the teacher educator interpreted and responded to context-specific tensions encountered in each academic year. The discussion highlights tensions and dilemmas that might be encountered by teacher educators who practice social justice teaching in countries where there are curricular standards at the national level; teachers serve as government officials; and, in spite of increasing diversity, student demographics are still homogeneous. Based on the findings, instructional strategies for carving out third space in the practice of social justice teaching are provided.
