  • The radical inclusive curriculum: contributions toward a theory of
           complete education

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper contributes to curriculum theory from the perspective of a fundamental critique of education. Its objective is two-fold: to analyze both traditional and critical approaches to the curriculum and the types of education that flow from them and to propose changes that could result in significant improvements to the curricula through the radical and inclusive approach. The principles of pedagogy are redefined from the standpoint of this approach, aiming to enhance the educational potential of the curricula. The method of the paper is hermeneutic and dialectical, critically disputing the utility of curriculum theory and of the international policies that drive current educational practice. The essay’s arguments are developed throughout in the dialogical space between the critique and the proposed changes. These arguments are oriented toward complementarity and aim to redefine education and the curriculum in terms of complexity and a higher level of consciousness. The conclusions suggest that the radical and inclusive approach can produce significant, thoroughgoing change in curricula, education, and pedagogy.

  • How intercultural experience affects university students’ gender views:
           potential for transforming higher education in Japan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Reducing gender disparities in Japan is an urgent issue that requires the attention of multilevel stakeholders, including higher education institutions. Under Sustainable Development Goal 4, target 4.7 calls for educational institutions, including universities, to explore innovative approaches to tackle issues such as gender inequality. The transition from student life to adulthood is a crucial time for university students as they face and become aware of gender inequalities in society. This study examines various opportunities in higher education, such as short study-abroad programs and globalization-related coursework, that positively influence university students’ understanding of others and potentially broaden their gender perspectives. Historically, the impacts of studying abroad and intercultural experiences have only been subjectively assessed based on participants’ self-evaluation. However, by using the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory, quantified data can be used to evaluate the nature and form of depth-based growth and compare three cases for potential changes before, after, or during educational programs. The study’s findings shed light on opportunities and barriers to transforming students’ views especially on gender issues. The study reveals (1) signs of improvement in students’ gender perspectives after participating in a short study-abroad program, (2) that international students with diverse experiences tend to demonstrate lower gender traditionalism, and (3) that freshmen and sophomores have relatively moderate views on gender norms, indicating that further intervention could improve their gender perspectives. The results showcase the possibility of developing meaningful study-abroad programs and other coursework to drive the positive change in students’ perspectives, especially regarding gender.

  • Changes in English education during the pre- and post-Kim Jong Un Eras in
           North Korea: A comparative textbook analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study explores how English education developed in North Korea by analyzing the characteristics of secondary English textbooks published in the pre– and post–Kim Jong Un eras. We performed comparative analyses of textbooks for six secondary schools—three each for the junior middle and senior middle schools—published before and after Kim Jong Un’s rule. The comparative analyses adopted Cunningsworth’s textbook evaluation framework to examine the textbooks’ composition and content: (1) aims and approaches, (2) design and organization, and (3) topic variety. The results showed significant changes in listening materials and activities, among others, as well as concurrent developments in teaching methods. Additionally, each unit significantly reduced the number of topics associated with the idolization of the Kim family and the deliberate vilification of capitalist countries and instead increased the integration of other subjects such as mathematics, science, and technology. This study showed that despite various changes, the aim of English education in North Korea continues to be the maintenance and further development of the socialist system through the improvement of students’ English proficiency. This study also discusses the coexistence of different perspectives such as liberal ideas in English textbooks while emphasizing ideology education and its possible ramifications on the future of English education in North Korea.

  • Transforming learning for sufficiency economy philosophy and sustainable
           development through the triangle of living learning lab

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With recognition to the importance of the royal initiative Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) as the guiding principle of national development and its role as a main driver to accomplish the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), Siam University decided to repositioning our institution, education program, and learning ecosystem accordingly. It was agreed that our students needed to learn more about how to apply SEP in practice and that they need to be nurtured and educated more about sustainable development. A research team was then appointed with 2 missions (1) to investigate students’ key competencies for sustainability in the 21st Century as needed by students and instructors and (2) to design and propose a model to transform general education program and learning for SEP and sustainable development (SD). A mixed methods approach, using document research, questionnaire, and focus group discussion, was employed. Five domains and 30 characteristics were identified as key competencies for sustainability in the 21st Century. Needs assessment questionnaire was distributed to 440 students and 160 instructors and analyzed by Modified Priority Needs Index (PNI Modified). It was found that both students and instructors ranked “appreciation, understanding, and commitment to apply the principle of sustainable development (SD) and Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) in daily life and global/social issues” as first priority (PNI Modified = 0.17, 0.36), “appreciation and preservation of Thai identity and Thai culture” as second (PNI Modified = 0.15, 0.34), and “concern, awareness and understanding global/social issues, and their impacts” as third (PNI Modified = 0.14, 0.28). Results of the study were then used as a basis in designing our general education program. The Triangle of Living Learning Lab model was then proposed as a model to transform GE program and learning for SEP and SD.

  • Task-based Autoethnographic Pedagogical Approach: a phenomenological
           inquiry into online learning of Critical Food Studies courses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The disengaging experiences reported in the online mode of learning have resulted in considerable deliberations highlighting the need for pedagogical innovations. Therefore, it is crucial to rethink these ideas and develop pedagogical approaches that accommodate a dynamic understanding of learning spaces and meet the demands of the teaching–learning environment of the contemporary period. This study discusses the various steps through which the task-based autoethnographic pedagogical approach (TAPA) was implemented in an undergraduate-level Critical Food Studies course and proposes it as an effective approach to administering certain courses by enabling active learning in the online mode. The study captures learners’ perceptions of meaningful online learning experiences by using an interpretative phenomenological approach, mapping the aspects that contribute to a sense of rekindled interest and involvement in the course. Some of the dominant patterns that emerge from this phenomenological study are (1) appreciation towards praxis-based online learning, (2) recognition of lived space as a ripe site for inquiry and learning, (3) a heightened sense of engagement with lived contexts, and identity discourses, (4) learners’ negotiations with TAPA, and (5) learner as an active agent and curator of knowledge. Thus, while situating TAPA as an effective pedagogical approach for online learning and Critical Food Studies curriculum, it is also posited as an approach that initiates negotiation with the epistemic hierarchies within academia.

  • Distributed leadership and teacher work engagement: the mediating role of
           teacher efficacy and the moderating role of interpersonal trust

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Teacher work engagement is essential for schools to achieve their educational objectives and student learning outcomes. Among all the influencing factors, supportive workplace resources from diverse sources such as distributed leadership, trust, and self-efficacy have been cited as important factors affecting teachers’ engagement in their work. Conservation of resources theory proposes a theoretical mechanism of how supportive resources can facilitate employee engagement; this study aims to further examine and investigate the ways in which teacher work engagement is enhanced by distributed leadership and the role of teacher efficacy and trust in this relationship. The findings of a survey involving 577 Chinese primary school teachers reveal that teacher efficacy completely mediates the positive relationship between distributed leadership and teacher work engagement. Distributed leadership also leads to increased teacher efficacy owing to higher levels of trust. These results suggest that distributed leadership is a highly effective approach that school administrators can adopt and that a workplace climate with a high level of interpersonal trust should be considered to further improve the effectiveness of school leadership and management.

  • High-impact educational practices: participation of Chinese and American
           undergraduates during the COVID-19 pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has led to challenges in high-impact extra-curricular educational practice. Using cross-national, large-scale survey data, this study discusses the current state of participation of high-impact educational practices (HIPs) among Chinese and American undergraduates, changes in this participation over time, and the differences between undergraduates in the two countries in this regard, from 2018 to 2021. We find that participation in social practices was significantly greater than research-related and extended learning activities in both China and the U.S. The involvement of first-year undergraduates in the three typical HIP activities was lower than that of seniors, especially in doing research with faculty. American seniors participated more in service learning and study abroad than Chinese seniors. The proportion of senior students who had studied abroad was lower than the proportion of first-year students who planned to study overseas, particularly in China. COVID-19 led to a significant drop in participation in service learning and study abroad in China, and it also amplified the impact of institutional support on the participation of undergraduates in HIPs.

  • Is government funding critical to the operating performance of technology
           universities' A case study of Taiwan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study utilizes the Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI) to evaluate the operating performance of technology universities in Taiwan. The bootstrap method is employed to analyze MPI sensitivity to verify the index’s stability. Our results suggest that the universities demonstrate an adequate level of performance with little improvement required. Technology universities with a greater proportion of total income from government subsidies did not evidence better operating performance. We argue that how universities obtain their funding is critical. Our findings will help universities (and their relevant departments) improve performance and better allocate resources.

  • Measures to motivate teachers in Afghanistan: a proposal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study focused on job satisfaction and motivation factors of schoolteachers from the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. Primary survey data from 378 teachers in Kabul were used in a randomized conjoint experiment to measure the causal effects of the proposed motivation policy’s relevant attributes on teachers’ satisfaction. The suggested hypothetical motivation policy comprised salary, number of classes per day, number of students per class, work desk, teacher training, and residential plot. We found that a higher than the current salary, a residential plot, and having fewer than 20 students per class and only three classes per day contributed to teachers’ job satisfaction. The proposed teacher motivation policy was widely endorsed by the sample.

  • Unfolding the typology and quality of the learner agency practices in the
           teachers’ implementation of the 2013  curriculum in Indonesia: the
           normalisation process theory perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Learner agency, or the ability to take control of one’s own learning and the learning of others, is a substantial goal of the curricular reform across the world. This can be seen in the implementation of the 2013 curriculum (K13) in Indonesia. However, there has been little evidence regarding the ways that Indonesian teachers have engaged with prescribed innovations. This interpretivist study examined the extent to which curricular innovations have been embedded in classrooms and how far they reveal the quality of their enactments, with particular interest in the identification of pedagogic practices that are associated with the promotion of learner agency. Using rich data from 15 individual semi-structured interviews and filmed classroom observations of three teachers, the study observed learner agency practices, including those associated with promoting peer and self-assessment, learning autonomy, and sharing learning objectives and assessment criteria. However, the implementation of these strategies varied in intensity and was rather artificial, without a strong conceptual underpinning. Drawing on normalization process theory (NPT), this paper argues that the observed teachers’ engagement in the promotion of learner agency lacked coherence, cognitive participation, collective action, and evaluation. Reform planners and teachers should understand the nature of successful implementation and consider adopting a framework to analyze and guide their evaluation of how reform should be organized, implemented, and evaluated to ensure effective embedding.

  • Can after-school tutoring improve the academic performance of students
           from low-income families' Trial evidence from economically backward
           areas in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study comprised a randomized controlled trial focusing on after-school English tutoring for all Grade 1 junior middle school students from low-income families (LIFs) in an economically backward county in China. In total, 120 randomly selected students from LIFs participated in four months of online after-school English tutoring. The results show that after-school English tutoring can significantly improve the English examination results of students from LIFs by 11 points (based on OLS regression estimation), which is equivalent to 0.3 standard deviations. In terms of result heterogeneity, we found boys may benefit more than girls, and both students with better (the top 40%) and relatively poor learning ability (the other students) can benefit from the extra instruction, but the latter benefits more. The spillover effect of the after-school English tutoring on Chinese scores only existed among students from urban LIFs. An extended analysis showed that the effects are sustained even after the program ends and that there is no spillover effect among students.

           study of Tsinghua University

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Making the university and its teachers and students alike as sustainable entrepreneurs are central endeavours in this age of sustainable development today. This paper presents an in-depth case study to examine the development of sustainable entrepreneurship of Tsinghua University of China at institutional and curricular levels. The paper first proposes an analytical model of the sustainable university as the alignment of six elements based on three interrelated propositions. The paper then applies the model to study Tsinghua’s culture of sustainability and entrepreneurship and its strategies from green university to sustainable university. Next the paper discusses five cases courses in sustainability education from diverse disciplines with shared goal to foster sustainability competence as global competence and shared pedagogies for experiential learning. The paper concludes with theoretical discussions of institutional-level sustainable entrepreneurship and also practical discussions of shared characteristics and challenges of curricular-level sustainable entrepreneurship with special references of pedagogical and digital opportunities and challenges. The paper presents findings from a self-reflective practitioner-as-researcher action research jointly conducted by the instructors of case courses. The paper used a mixed-method approach with participatory observation, interview, focus-group, survey, and curricular development experiments.

  • “A very small cog in the wheel”: principals’ perceptions of change
           and continuity in the wake of ESSA reforms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law, replacing No Child Left Behind as the statutory education policy of the federal government of the United States (US). Building on prior shifts in accountability policy at the state level, ESSA focused attention and resources on building school leadership capacities. Five years on, how has the implementation of ESSA changed principals’ perceptions of accountability' We compare state policy documents and principal interviews to elucidate the impacts of ESSA on school accountability and leadership in two states—Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Despite major differences in state support for principal’s capacity building found in ESSA plans, interview data suggest that most principals have little knowledge of ESSA policy and do not perceive the influence of ESSA on changes in their day-to-day work. We discuss the implications of this discrepancy between the ESSA policy and practice for researchers and school leaders.

  • Humility and its cultivation in Chinese schools: an exploratory study into
           teachers’ perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Humility as a concept has recently received increasing scholarly attention in international scholarship. It has also been regarded as important for education traditionally in Chinese culture. However, no empirical research so far has examined Chinese people’s conceptualisations of humility in education and its cultivation in schools. Based on semi-structured interviews, this exploratory study examined urban teachers’ conceptions of humility and their experiences of cultivating humility in mainland Chinese schools. Our findings highlight the multiplicity and complexity of conceptualisations of humility and the challenges faced by the teachers in cultivating humility. The study also raises questions about the politics of practicing humility and the complex entanglements between moral values and social norms and relations, inviting more research to examine the complex implications of moral virtues that are promoted in schools and wider societies around the world. Despite their recognition of the potentially negative consequences of humility such as avoidance from competition and entailing emotional constraints, the teachers regarded humility as a predominantly positive moral concept important for learning, teaching, and teacher–student relationship. Meanwhile, they associated it with disciplinary dispositions such as being quiet, subtle, cautious, or dutiful. The teachers’ attempts to cultivate it among their students were highly contingent, however, due to various challenges, including a lack of teacher training and limited textbook contents on humility, the exam-orientedness of the Chinese education system, and the perceived individualistic dispositions of Chinese students.

  • The connectivity between Chinese and Turkish science systems: an agential
           perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Global science is not an equal ground. Certain national science systems are more centrally positioned in global science than others. However, recent trends indicate a move towards a more plural global science. For example, traditionally non- ‘core’ science systems exercise their agency in expanding collaboration among themselves, thus leading to increasing global scientific connectivity. The traditionally core national science systems gradually lose their strong gatekeeping roles. However, the dominant theoretical lenses, including world-systems theory, seem to fail to acknowledge and explain these recent trends. Against this backdrop, this study highlights an agential perspective in examining the global connectivity among science systems. Chinese and Turkish science systems were selected for an early exploration of the identified phenomenon. The study reveals that the connectivity between Chinese–Turkish science systems is multilateral, involving diverse science systems around the globe. Although Euro-American systems, as traditionally core systems, remain crucial, they do not dominate the connectivity. China is the strongest system in this connectivity, but collaboration benefits both countries, as well as global science.

  • Analysis of the home-based online teaching and learning policy during the
           COVID-19 second wave in Brunei: a joint parent/teacher perception

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the traditional face-to-face forms of educational instruction and has led to increased involvement in online learning. Consequently, online learning has gained popularity and has become the norm worldwide today, because it offers a safe learning environment as well as convenience and flexibility. During the pandemic, school campuses in Brunei were closed, classes were conducted online, and parents/guardians were expected to cooperate and assist their children with home-based online learning. However, online teaching posed a different set of challenges for teachers and students, which warrant research and policy attention at the national level. This study provided a review of the literature on the policies and best practices for online teaching and learning and formulated three key objectives. The first was to identify the policy initiatives and guidelines introduced by the government of Brunei to facilitate and ensure the effectiveness of online teaching and e-learning. The second referred to obtaining the perceptions of teachers and parents on three specific dimensions, namely, the implementation of blended learning, the use of online pedagogy, and enhancement of the e-learning experiences of students. The last objective was to identify the challenges associated with these dimensions and to propose actions and policy recommendations for improvement. This study employed document analysis, interview, and data collected from public social media. The implementation of online teaching and e-learning in Brunei was met with many challenges due to the poor network infrastructure and weak knowledge and content development of ICT. Thus, this study serves as a basis for improving innovation and governance in education, which focuses not only on the enhancement of academic performance but also on the digital divide. The paper was first presented at the 21st International Conference on Education Research (ICER) at the Seoul National University, Republic of Korea on October 21, 2021, by the first author. This research is part of the research project entitled: Pandemic Policies and Governance in Small States in the Southeast Asian Region.

  • The way to sustainability: education for sustainable development in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study explores what China’s central government has done in relation to education for sustainable development (ESD) and what Chinese higher education institutions (HEIs) have achieved in terms of ESD in response to SDG4. This is a qualitative case study focusing on China’s central government and Beijing Normal University (BNU). The main form of data analyzed was documents. In total, we collected 48 policy documents, six speech transcripts and work statements, and 167 news releases. The results show that ESD has not been implemented holistically in China. Educational sectors promoted ESD because sustainable development has been emphasized in the national political strategy. However, the specific meaning of sustainable development in the educational sector is unclear, and the implementation has not been systematic. Overall, more attention has been paid to the natural dimension of ESD than to the social dimension. At BNU, ESD activities are conducted through three mechanisms: a coercive mechanism, a professional mechanism, and a cultural mechanism. Health, culture, and environmental protection have received more attention than social equity.

  • Translanguaging as a social justice strategy: the case of teaching Chinese
           to ethnic minority students in Hong Kong

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract For the past two decades, a significant number of ethnic minority students from diverse racial, cultural, linguistic, and religious backgrounds have entered Chinese language classrooms in Hong Kong for the first time. Simultaneously, Chinese language teachers have come under criticism for their lack of understanding of diversity and their failure to integrate ethnic minority students academically and socially. However, there is little research on how these teachers can transform their educational beliefs, teaching techniques, and attitudes toward diversity and inclusion to respond effectively to the drastic changes taking place in their professional work. This study examines how a group of Chinese language teachers employed translanguaging as a social justice strategy to address the challenges of teaching minority students in a monolingual and assimilative educational setting in Hong Kong. Classroom observations show that teachers enacted a translanguaging stance, using students’ familiar semiotic resources to make their teaching more inclusive and equitable for ethnic minority students from low socioeconomic and religious backgrounds. Teachers reported becoming more aware of diversity in the classroom as well as of the social inequalities and racial discrimination outside of school. The study shows that criticism has been unfairly levied on Chinese language teachers in Hong Kong, who should not be held responsible for the social problems hindering ethnic minorities’ social mobility. Research should include a decolonial perspective to legitimize translanguaging as a social justice strategy for more transformative praxis in the education sector in postcolonial Hong Kong.

  • Effects of changing from on-site to online distance classes on graduate
           students’ help-seeking: lessons for sustainable teaching and learning
           from the COVID-19 pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Over the past decade, the Japanese government and Japanese universities have increased student mobility, both inbound and outbound, to accelerate the internationalization of higher education. However, student mobility was halted in early 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and international students who had planned to engage in a traditional study abroad program could not enter Japan. The current study examined whether the unexpected implementation of online distance classes because of the pandemic affected the learning strategies of graduate students, including international students. In addition, we investigated whether the online courses functioned as an alternative to face-to-face classes. An analysis using structural equation modeling revealed that the period of enrollment, self-regulation, and country of residence were factors that influenced help-seeking behavior. Graduate students who had enrolled before the pandemic and already experienced face-to-face classes were more likely to actively seek help from instructors and classmates in online classes. Furthermore, graduate students who were unable to enter the country but were taking classes online also tended to actively engage in help-seeking from their instructors and classmates. Students’ experiences of the sudden change to distance learning suggest that, to ensure a sustainable teaching and learning environment in various contexts, instructors should use class designs that consider distance learning, particularly designs that enhance students’ help-seeking, even under normal circumstances. In addition, ensuring sufficient online/virtual spaces for communication among teachers and students is important.

  • An interpretive analysis of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals in Hong
           Kong public universities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study in the research domain of higher education sustainability addresses issues of policy and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in and through Hong Kong public universities. The purpose of the study was to critically analyze the problématique of achieving the SDGs by the Hong Kong higher education sector. The study used a post-empiricist qualitative design with Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis and an embedded case study methodology in order to explore the issues of the SDGs policy and implementation in eight public Hong Kong universities. The concept of sustainability ensoulment and the Higher Education Institution Sustainability Model served as a theoretical grounding for the interpretative analysis. The interpretive results showed a broad range of university responses and governmental support for SDGs despite small number of universities, and a score of authentic SDGs-related efforts, which were fully embedded into the educational mission of the universities. The essence from the interpretive analysis of the data suggests that the universities’ authentic attainment of the SDGs requires a ‘salutary detachment’ from putting excessive priorities on superficial sustainability standards and considering universities’ global ranking league tables as their principal goal. The study provides a structured discussion within five thematic areas: (1) regional-dominant sustainability challenges; (2) financing structure and independence; (3) institutional organization; (4) extent of democratic processes; and (5) communication and interaction with society. The research argues that a genuine SDGs attainment originates from what universities know best and regard as their threefold mission—research, teaching and knowledge transfer—to effectively generate global citizens with full ensoulment of the SDGs spirit and values, and thus, turning universities into authentically sustainable institutions.
