The Purpose Of Education: What Should An American 21st Century Education Value?, Krista Shilvock 2018 South Dakota State University

The Purpose Of Education: What Should An American 21st Century Education Value?, Krista Shilvock

Empowering Research for Educators

A survey taken by 511 respondents dealt with such issues as past and current educational practice preparation, educational purposes in America, core class subjects, and soft skill teachings. Its results revealed a public opinion believing the primary goal of education as teaching students to adapt to any situation they find themselves in. Other results include a lack of preparation in current practices for life beyond education, although workforce preparation is adequate. Also, soft skills ought to see a curriculum of their own and taught explicitly to students in education instead of implicitly enforced, hoping parents alone taught these skills previously ...

“If Our English Isn’T A Language, What Is It?” Indonesian Efl Student Teachers’ Challenges Speaking English, Mukhlash Abrar, Amirul Mukminin, Akhmad Habibi, Fadhil Asyrafi, Makmur Makmur, Lenny Marzulina 2018 Jambi University

“If Our English Isn’T A Language, What Is It?” Indonesian Efl Student Teachers’ Challenges Speaking English, Mukhlash Abrar, Amirul Mukminin, Akhmad Habibi, Fadhil Asyrafi, Makmur Makmur, Lenny Marzulina

The Qualitative Report

Research on students’ skill speaking English in a non-English speaking country such as Indonesia is limited. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to document Indonesian EFL student teachers’ experiences in speaking English at one public university in Jambi, Indonesia. Data came from demographic questionnaires and semi-structured interviews obtained from eight participants. We organized our analysis and discussion around Indonesian EFL student teachers’ perspectives and the contexts in which experiences they encountered emerge. Our analysis of the text revealed overarching themes and sub-themes including (1) language barriers (vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and fluency); (2) psychological factors (anxiety, attitude, and lack of ...


A Stitch In Time Saves Caribbeanization: Meta-Steering And Strategic Coordination In An Era Of Caribbean Trans-Regionalism, Tavis D. Jules 2018 Loyola University Chicago

A Stitch In Time Saves Caribbeanization: Meta-Steering And Strategic Coordination In An Era Of Caribbean Trans-Regionalism, Tavis D. Jules

Tavis D. Jules

This article sets out to theoretically explain the Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) integrative stalemate. It argues that this needs to be studied in light of a changing regional, geographic, and geostrategic climate. A shift is occurring from ‘endogenous regionalism,’ which concentrates on the Caribbean’s historical past, to ‘exogenous regionalism,’ which focuses on creating a borderless Caribbean space and promotes Caribbeanization through the Caribbean Single Market (CSM), which came into force in 2006, and the stalemated Caribbean Single Economy (CSE). I argue that new trans-hemispheric relations are emerging and Caribbean regionalism is now both multi-centric—arising from actions in numerous ...


International Students In Their Own Country: Motivation Of Vietnamese Graduate Students To Attend A Collaborative Transnational University, Christina W. Yao, Crystal E. Garcia 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

International Students In Their Own Country: Motivation Of Vietnamese Graduate Students To Attend A Collaborative Transnational University, Christina W. Yao, Crystal E. Garcia

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

Higher education institutions in Vietnam have embraced opportunities to collaborate internationally to address specific educational needs that have emerged as a result of an accelerated economic and political society. The shift to a global market-driven economy has resulted in the need to produce better prepared graduates, advance in technology, and a shift in teaching and learning practices. In this study, we examine the motivations of 22 Vietnamese graduate students to attend Vietnamese-German University (VGU). The site is of particular importance because VGU is a true collaboration between two different governments, resulting in a collaborative transnational university. The findings from this ...


Factors Associated With Academic Performance Among Second-Year Undergraduate Occupational Therapy Students, Tore Bonsaksen, Brian J. Ellingham, Tove Carstensen 2018 Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Oslo; and VID Specialized University, Sandnes

Factors Associated With Academic Performance Among Second-Year Undergraduate Occupational Therapy Students, Tore Bonsaksen, Brian J. Ellingham, Tove Carstensen

The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy

Background: Research into occupational therapy education and its outcomes for students is growing. More research is needed to determine the factors of importance for occupational therapy students’ academic outcomes. This study aimed to investigate factors associated with academic performance among second-year undergraduate occupational therapy students in Norway.

Methods: Occupational therapy students (n = 111) from two education programs completed questionnaires asking for sociodemographic, work-related, and education-related information. Hierarchical linear regression analysis was used to examine factors independently associated with the students’ academic performance.

Results: A higher age was associated with better average academic performance among the students, whereas having higher education ...


Exploring Chinese International Students’ Sense Of Belonging In North American Postsecondary Institutions, Jia Chen 2018 University of Windsor

Exploring Chinese International Students’ Sense Of Belonging In North American Postsecondary Institutions, Jia Chen

Major Papers

Since 2000, an increasing number of Chinese international students have been entering North American universities, and many have experienced issues with a sense of belonging, which can in turn impact their academic, social performance, and psychological wellbeing. However, there is limited research on this topic that is exclusively focused on Chinese international students. Therefore, in order to establish the direction that future research should take, a thorough literature review has been conducted with the aim of establishing the factors that shape this phenomenon, the impact it has on students and institutions, and strategies that help to overcome this issue. Based ...


My Experience At The University Of Dayton, Amal Alrasheed 2018 University of Dayton

My Experience At The University Of Dayton, Amal Alrasheed

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

“I am Amal. What is your name?” This “easy” phrase is what I used to say when I wanted to integrate within a new community back in Saudi Arabia. However, this phrase was the toughest phrase I could say out loud when I was a freshman at the University of Dayton. I faced a lot of challenges when I first came to UD. I was not prepared to handle the differences between my culture and the American culture. I wanted to be part of the UD community; however, people seemed uncomfortable whenever I opened a conversation. I had a tough ...

Storytelling And Cross-Cultural Communication, Jia Yang 2018 University of Dayton

Storytelling And Cross-Cultural Communication, Jia Yang

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Misunderstanding happens when a person is trying to apply a story of his/her native culture to people from another culture, and do not realize that the story might be interpreted differently by the audience. The same story may not deliver the same results as you predict in your native culture.


Why Globalization Matters, J W. Terry 2018 Wright-Patterson Air Force Base

Why Globalization Matters, J W. Terry

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Globalization is a choice; inclusivity is also a choice. When you have privilege or power, you can choose what you like and what you don’t like. People tend to associate with what they value. That is fine; however, the problem exists in the question of “why do we value what we value?” I would argue that your values have been shaped by the media, false or incomplete historical narratives, and of course your upbringing. Therefore, your values have been skewed by factors like racism, white supremacy, simple stereotypes.


Institutional Relevance, Timothy Kao 2018 University of Dayton

Institutional Relevance, Timothy Kao

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

To better defend U.S. interests and more effectively address global unrest, we must foster greater mutual understanding. Educating international students is one of the most effective ways to do that. Rather than allow shifts in the global education marketplace to determine who studies here, the United States must proactively seek to educate a more globally and economically diverse population.


Global Connections And The Marianists, Una M. Cadegan 2018 University of Dayton

Global Connections And The Marianists, Una M. Cadegan

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

For the past ten or fifteen years, I have been waging a one-person stealth campaign—I guess I am going to uncloak it today. That campaign is to change the university’s motto from Pro Deo et Patria (For God and Country) to Pro Deo et Mundo (For God and the World). “For God and Country,” adopted in 1920, reflected the sense among many American Catholics right after the First World War that they were, in a new way, fully American. “For God and the World” reflects our deepening sense today that our commitments and our awareness need to extend ...


Thinking Critically About “Community”, Christpher Agnew 2018 University of Dayton

Thinking Critically About “Community”, Christpher Agnew

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Why hold this symposium now? In the past year, we have seen in this country a contest over definitions of community, over the basic rights of immigrants in this country, over the role of the U.S. in the wider world. Tensions are high, demagogues are out in force, and the results have been frightening to those targeted by the state, and frightening to those who see in these developments something too reminiscent of the worst parts of the twentieth century. It is appropriate in moments like this to appreciate the successes and recognize the problems, both realized and potential ...


Introduction Of The Keynote Speaker: Imbolo Mbue, Amy E. Anderson 2018 University of Dayton

Introduction Of The Keynote Speaker: Imbolo Mbue, Amy E. Anderson

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Imbolo Mbue is the author of Behold The Dreamers, a 2017 Oprah’s Book Club pick and winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award.

Mbue’s book is informed by her experience of being an immigrant and the experiences of the many immigrants that she knows. The journeys of our students and Ms. Mbue connect in Limbe: each summer a group of UD students travels to Cameroon for a cultural-immersion/study-abroad program.

Mbue’s work is particularly relevant as we have a national conversation about immigration. Behold the Dreamers explores the complexity and interrelationship of these journeys and their connection to ...


Provost Remarks: Global Voices Symposium, Paul H. Benson 2018 University of Dayton

Provost Remarks: Global Voices Symposium, Paul H. Benson

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Our studies of and engagements with global matters—people and practices, languages and histories, values and geographies—should not be regarded merely as a kind of overlay upon or supplement to whatever we might be inclined to think of as “our own,” as local, as domestic, as home. Our home is the world, the entire world—past, present, and future—in all of its dazzling multiplicity and variety. Whatever risks might attach to a naïve cosmopolitanism that undervalues the significance of our particular, localized practices, meanings, and relationships, it is essential for us to acknowledge, to explore, and embrace all ...


Introductory Remarks: Global Voices On Campus, Julius A. Amin 2018 University of Dayton

Introductory Remarks: Global Voices On Campus, Julius A. Amin

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus Symposium emerged in an atmosphere of optimism. During the last decade, UD’s profile as an international campus increased in several ways. With roughly 10 percent of its students identifying as international, the University restructured its curriculum to include more programming and course offerings that are global in nature and scholarly scope. There was an uptick in study abroad and cultural immersion programs. Simultaneously, UD’s efforts to recruit more domestic minority students, especially African American, Hispanic, and Native American students, is on the right trajectory. It is moving upwards. Last year ...
