Questions related to Educational Administration
This is a very specific query about implementing Design Thinking in the education sector especially with reference to innovation in higher education. Views, comments, opinions, analysis, case studies are welcome.
is there a historical map of academic disciplines? what is the trend of academic disciplines changes(number, nature and label of disciplines)?
i will be thanks full if someone introduce any article, book, handbook or report about historical map of disciplines and history of academic disciplines.
I am interested in getting updated on multidisciplinary approaches (Law, Ethics, Psychology, Education, Administration, and so forth) about power harassment in academia, especially (but not exclusively) concerning Brazilian public universities. I would like to know about theoretical works on the subject as well as to read some case studies (recent or not).
If anyone has a project or a text that can share or suggest, I will be really glad.
Thank you very much.
Yes, this is a very important issue. The issue of communication with the use of new online media is very important in the context of an efficiently run education process.
We are currently communicating widely across various online media, including via email. Some of the email mailboxes we use have anti-spam restrictions, which makes communication difficult. The development of communication through various online media, also through social media portals is an important issue in education. New media should be effectively used in the education process, but not always their technical specification is fully suitable for the needs of communication development in the context of the ongoing education process. However, as far as possible, new online media should be used in education, because young people use them widely and can be an excellent additional tool in the field of teaching instruments, eg for the purpose of efficiently searching for the necessary, current information.
In view of the above, I would like to ask you: Should new internet media be used in educational processes?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
Starting summer school for international students at the university level is an exciting and challenging task. I would like to discuss how one can market the Summer School for international students by managing online and offline marketing strategies. Which other strategies would be helpful for the successful marketing of summer school?
Online: Website, SEO, GoogleAds, Social Media
Offline: University collaborations
Please see the latest project I just posted for a bit more information. I am interested in tracing a history of the current standards movement in education through the movement towards objectives and outcomes. I hypothesize that this history is situated within "scientism," which sought to improve education by developing a "science of education" that did not exist prior to the movement towards educational objectives (which, so far, I have traced to a 1918 work by Franklin Bobbit, Professor of Educational Administration at the University of Chicago.
In Iraq, the admission procedure at universities is controlled by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research that uses mainly the “Baccalauréat” examination score (final exam in secondary school) to distribute students on colleges and study fields.
The students are allowed to give their preferences (50 choices for the name of colleges and academic institutions they want to study arranged from more desired to less desired), but at the end their “Baccalauréat” examination score will determine the college and they usually end up getting enrolled in a less desired college.
On the other hand this college, that the student got accepted in, will apply the same procedure to distribute the students on departments within that college! For example, if a student got accepted at the college of engineering at one of the Iraqi universities but his “Baccalauréat” examination score is not enough to allow him/her to study Computer Engineering (the study field that he/she may prefere more), the college will take his less desired choice that could be mechanical or chemical Engineering to be the his/her field of study for the next four years of his/her life.
What do you think about such a procedure to enrol students at universities?
Dear RG Colleagues,
As a teacher, I want to know what are the consequences (The general academic policies on cheating) for a student caught in flagrancy cheating on exams (in your institution or university).
Pupils and students use social media portals to exchange information useful for education. In addition, Facebook and students create group profiles where they put together teaching materials. In addition, they create questionnaire forms for the purposes of surveys, the results of which are used for written diploma and final papers.
Therefore, I am asking you with the following query: How do social media portals help pupils and students in education?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion
Thank you very much
I would like to know how the laboratories are organized? How they are working? And educational programmes for lab specialits?
I am just beginning research for my EDD at So. CT State University. I am interested in investigating a first year program at a mid sized private college in relation to Astin's Theory of Involvement and determining if there are relationships between the course, student retention, and graduation rates. In addition to looking at archival data for between-group comparisons, I am most interested in conducting a survey of current students to see if the course is promoting developmental competencies that coincide with Astin's 5 elements of involvement. Do you have any recommendations for articles or researchers I should review? Additionally, do you have any recommendations for some survey instruments that might be beneficial to examine as well? Ideally, I will find an existing survey that might work for what I am interested in pursuing.
Many thanks for your time and consideration
I am interested in practices and ways in which statistical data on pupils' ethnicity are collected for reporting purposes (e.g., by the state authority). For instance, in the Czech Republic, the share of Roma pupils in schools is reported to the Ministry by the school principal and is based on his/her judgment (which has advantages as well as limitations).
I am interested in other possible ways this information is being obtained in other countries (in case it is being collected for statistical purposes) and I will be glad for any information, suggestions or links to relevant resources.
I working on a new research in the area of implementing quality in EU higher education.? and I need a way to select the sample?
I don't want to have a bias in the sampling and at the same time, I don't want to take the sample base on the geographic location. I am seeking for something more relevant to the quality of higher education
There are many nursing schools in the Philippines which are closing. Some are due to lack of enrollees in spite of their high quality education and accreditation. And some are closing due to poor performance in the licensure examination for three consecutive years. I am now presently preparing my study proposal on Spiritual Quotient, Leadership Behavior of Administrators and Success of private Nursing Schools in Metro Manila, Please help me in providing variables/parameters to measure success of a private nursing school. Thank you
Dear All, I am dealing my research in Education and educational gender in DRC, I wish,I got some information about it.
I am working on a study of linking educational policy on individuals for international university students. Studies and literatures discussed mainly on how teachers/lecturers/admin staff process and interpret the policy, however, could someone advise studies or readings on how policy direct influence individuals?
Currently, funding available to elementary and high school students vary depending on what state they live in, and their socioeconomic status. If all schools were to receive the same amount of money per student regardless of socioeconomic status would students perform better and have less variation among test scores and academic results? I would like some reference materials or help on this topic.my focus is on k-12, but I am open to all ideas currently.
Is there a set of threshold concepts the two disciplines must bridge to communicate or learn effectively from or with each other? Can these be easily or measured?
What is the load distribution perfect percentages for academic staff?
Example 40% teaching, 40% research, 20% others (community service, admin, consultation, etc)? What is the best percentages?
I am looking for a validated scale (in English or Turkish) to measure school principals' social justice leadership.
I would like to investigate the group/work faultlines among teachers in schools. But I don't know how I can measure that. Could you recommend to me, how I can designed the study?
I plan a project. The project's aim is to determine inequality behaviours against students in schools. So I am looking for paper, book etc. about this topic.
1. What are the issues of inequality against the students within or outside the classroom?
Kets de Vries, Lipman-Bluman, Padilla, Kellerman Tourish and others have written extensively on the subject of destructive/toxic leadership. Educational administration literature is rather silent on the topic. Eugenie Samer in her works, "Trust and Betrayal in Educational Administration" and "Secrecy and Tradecraft in Educational Administration' has broken ground on the subject, but it's pretty rare to find further works on the topic. Specifically, I'm looking at how the environment--governance qualifications, organizational performance measures or the lack thereof (BTW not referring to student achievement here) contribute to senior leader moral disengagement, toxic leadership and organizational 'tribalism' to the detriment of organizational goals. This problem has a very real face in school districts, but has not been covered in the literature outside of school-based leadership challenges, or examinations of senior leadership behaviour in institutes of higher learning.
I am working on a project of determinants of quality education in higher institutions. Which things can be included in this. Is there any literature review available on the topic.
In my research, I am measuring employees' perceptions of how their managers create conditions that support professional growth and how the employees perceive their growth motivation and commitment to the organization. For this purpose, I found Growth Oriented Atmosphere Questionnaire (GOAQ) developed by Ruohotie. However, I would like to know if there are other similar questionnaires or instruments designed for this purpose. Can you please guide me to find these alternatives.

I'm conducting a research on knowledge management and organisational performance under the mediating impact of innovation: the case of public universities in Vietnam. Those who are interested in the same topic pls share your insight over the topic. Your sharig is highly appreciated.
The demand for higher education is such that numbers of students enrolled in higher education is high and still growing over time. A good education should be availed to everyone who is interested in learning anywhere, anytime and be empowered without too many conditions. The costs must be cut lest we damage access and equity. Quality needs to be maintained despite the challenges this cannot be compromised no matter what? How then are are educators administrators and students coping with this state of affairs?
I am currently a Master student who studying at Universiti Putra Malaysia,Malaysia pursuing Masters of Educational Administration. I would like to use your Organizational culture survey as part of my research Project Paper.Hope to get a reply from you granting permission to use the instrument. Thank you for your co-operation.
I need literature international standards regarding Average space per student in general classrooms, Average space per student in special classrooms such as libraries, computer laboratories, science laboratories, etc.
Dear Colleagues, I am preparing a paper about the long term Socio-political effects due to political interventions in our Public Education System. I wish to find out if there are any similar researches from other countries especially western based democracies. (as so to enable better comparison) This could be based on intervention in curriculum, text books, funding, teacher training and posting.
I am at the beginning of working out an expertise, how schools in challenging contexts (socio-economically disadvantaged areas) can be supported.
Aside at aspects, what teachers, school leaders and parents can do, I am especially interested in instruments, which education policy, education administration and regional politics can supply supporting those schools.
In more details I mean: evidence-based improvement with support of experts for interpreting test data (what sort of social and learning outcome data are most important), additional ressources on the basis of a social index (like additional teachers and other supporting stuff, smaller classes, more teacher time for developing strategies and reflecting the actual situation, money for additional media, …), better organized school catchment areas with better social-mixed school population (bussing?), networks of schools in the region with similar problems,
It would be helpful for me participating in your experiences and knowledge of relevant literature.
What are the most relevant problems of authentic leadership in the context of education, which could be suggested for investigation?
What scientific literature could be recommend regarding to expression of authentic leadership in school principal‘s activity?
One of John Hattie's suggestions is to decide how much a year's learning is for each student and then you can judge that student's success against that amount. While this seems like a good idea in theory, it leaves me none the wiser. How much exactly is one year's worth of learning. How can it be measured? What would the metric be? Content is the easiest to measure because it could conceivably be defined by an amount or quantity, but what about conceptual understanding? What would a metric be for that?
I am looking for a measure of compensation in the education sector with indicators (basic pay, allowances, bonuses). Please do share. Thanks
I am looking for information about selection and training school administrators in not only China, but Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Finland, Estonia, Liechtenstein, Canada, Poland, Netherland, Switzerland and Vietnam. I want to compare selection and training of school administrators of these countries and propose a model for Turkey. Thanks in advance for your interest.
In Jamaica it is accepted as a given that nothing ever gets started on time and that people will always be late. This view seems to have taken root in the school and needs to be permanently eradicated.
Problem: More and more countries are getting involved in the globalized world, partly by strengthening such transnational communities as the European Union and the AEC (ASEAN Economic Comunity). The free movement of the workforce and of students is a fact in this regard. Besides the need for comparable transcripts there is also the need for the secure exchange of such data between national authorities.
What are current activities in setting up data international exchange standards (such as EDIFACT (Electronic Data Interchange For Administration, Commerce and Transport, United Nations) for educational institutions?
What I am really trying to find out is how easy is it for instructors at for-profit institutions to get through any ARB or IRB processes that institution may have, or if their institution even has one.
The Austrian educational system is somewhat broken: kids from socially weaker families have little chance for an academic career, there is a big discrepancy between school notes and results of the independent exams etc.
Since I disagree with the reasoning of the Austrian education experts, I wrote a simple model which reproduces the observed anomalies fairly well (qualitatively, the model is not calibrated in any way and probably too simple to deliver quantitatively correct data anyway).
The model assumes that the girls/boys and rich/poor kids have the same potential for school success and and that the observed anomalies are mainly an artifact caused by the way a school system (early segregation of children) works and by the teachers aptitudes (teachers dislike defiant children).
Since this is just a hobby for me, I would be interested to hear what experts on this topic think of the model and how the model should be improved.
We are giving educational, cultural fairs, handing out educational pamphlets at community centers, giving seminars, etc., and want to measure a change in whether knowledge was gained in the population over time. Thank you.
Now a days universities looking for quality assurance to improve and maintain the quality.
Why universities aren't going to apply for international accreditation bodies?
I was reading an archived article today in the Guardian about the consequences of higher education. The writer's premise was that if graduates could not be guaranteed entry to the job market, higher education was meaningless.
Almost all universities promoting their faculty members recur to their bylaws and the policy requirements for promotion from one level to another. However, there are many independent faculty members (especially adjunct instructors/professors) who desire to be evaluated in their ranks but are not accepted for promotion in their current institutions for being part-timers. Is this external promotion possible? Does any of you have any experience or heard about such a system?
In some Jamaican Schools some students are dis-respectful to staff and as a result some teachers only teach their lessons to these students while the 'Culture of Care' that is a necessary aspect of students' achievement is missing.
The Department of Education's statistical data show African American students are performing at a lower rate in standardized testing and achievement scores than Caucasian and Hispanic students. Howbeit, many African American students are capable of averaging or passing the grade level expectancy as any other population of students.
I've done some googling but I don't know what are the seminal works in this area. High quality papers or literature reviews would be great time savers if anyone knows good sources. Secondary and post-secondary contexts are of interest.
What kind of information technology infrastructure would be required to unify, centralize and control a university's management and administration, academic instruction, student services, research activities, human resources and financial services and provide effective Business Intelligence.
