Questions related to Student Counseling
I would like to join or initiate a network with this goal in mind. I cannot fathom why, especially in view of the documented psychological impact of COVID-19, hardly any secondary or tertiary institutions, in the US and abroad, are requiring these subjects to be taught. Some universities and high schools in the US, UK and Australia are offering courses on psychogical wellbeing AKA "happiness" as electives, but the content is often scientifically shallow and not integrated with student services.
I am building an Intelligent Career Counseling chatbot. Which will provide guidance to college graduates in choosing their career path based on their background, Interest Inventories, values Inventories, and aptitude assessment.
Will be happy to work with a volunteer.
During your studies, have you been directed to the department or specialty you wish to pursue?
Please specify a time for which you have not been directed to the desired specialization.
خلال مختلف المراحل الدراسية التي مررتم بها من تعليم ثانوي إلى تعليم جامعي ثم إلى عالم التوظيف والشغل، هل تم احترام رغبتكم الدراسية في التعليم الثانوي أو الجامعي أو حتى بالنسبة إلى عالمكم المهني هل تم احترام رغبتكم المهنية في هذا التخصص أو ذاك؟
I need to look at the relationship between the number of counselling self-referrals among students from an institution and the total number of students in the same institution, for each year between 2000 and 2015. I have the number of self-referrals per year and the number of total students in that institution per year. What tests do I use to analyse the relationship between the two? Perhaps linear regression?
I'd be really grateful for your answers!
I'm thinking that a Chi-Square test might also be appropriate, given that I have information on both number of referrals and total number of students per year across all 15 years, according to gender, instrument and programme (undergraduate or postgraduate). Am I wrong in considering a Chi-Square test?
Please share different methods employed by academicians globally to make the students have a keen interest towards research at incipient years of their study at a dental school / medical school.
Thanks in advance
We are trying to define hypothesis for students' career preferences in terms of Hofstede model of cultural differences. We are doing research in Germany and Croatia and seem to run into contradictions with defining power distance and masculinity/femininity. Power distance is higher in Croatia and masculinity in Germany. Can anyone help?

It appears most private Universities in Ghana do not offer effective counseling service to their students. It seems to me that for this service to be effective, some basic provisions should be available at the University. What has contributed to the effectiveness of students’ counseling in your institution?
Hello, I will be conducting a quantitative study in my school district. I have narrowed the research to those students that have behavior concerns that are impeding their academic progress. The study is in the elementary grades 3rd-5th. The student overall population is approximately 100 students per grade. Would 25 students in each grade level be sufficient? and how do I justify the population of 75 students for the study?
Counselling/psychotherapy are not very familiar terms in Pakistan. Many people are not aware of these, and those who are mostly believe that these are meant for severely disturbed psychiatric patients. Students are especially reluctant to seek these services as they would not like to be receiving "psychological support".
Please suggest practical ways and/or recent articles for reducing this stigma among university students. At this point they are being offered orientation sessions and skill-building workshops (recently initiated).
some philosophers gave many answers what teacher/student relationship is, but I don´t think we can just understand their relationship only like 'subject-object''subject-subject '`intersubject ` way, I think there would be some more `between `them . What do you think ? How can we research on it in the future?
I am working on a piece of research into the use of technology in providing counselling services in UK Higher Education Institutions and would be interested to know if this study has been undertaken in other countries and the outcomes of the research. Thanks
Students have to write reports on the experiments they do which include a methods and a evaluation part. This is reasonable, I think.
Some of the assistants and/or lecturers also ask for an huge theory part. They argue that this way students are forced to deal with the theory of the experiment if they have to write an short essay on it.
This results in students just hand-copying textes from scripts, or books, or mates and rephrase them.
So, first, I counter-argue that rephrasing statements which are correct leads to statements which are at best(!) still correct. But most of the time it will lead to statements which just became wrong. So this does not help at all.
To counter that ,actually, they just have to put quotating-marks around an untouched text and make a reference to the source - which would be correct IMHO. Amusingly, this is (often) not allowed, though.
Secondly, I think that the responsibility for briefing yourself with the theory is kind of your own buisness. Of course, this is arguable.
Thirdly, I think hand-copying large textes (and even rephrasing them) is a lower brain function, i.e. that you can do that without dealing with the content of the text. It is just "stupid work".
And that's what my question is about: From my own experience, I can confirm that. But are there any references on this topic or am I the only one who experienced that?
This issue of Open Praxis focuses on innovative and effective student support services in open, distance and flexible education. We accept contributions that address aspects such as the following:
- Distance learning students' needs and justification of support services in open and distance education.
- Innovative services to promote students' retention, performance and occupational guidance.
- Role of technologies for student support services. Possibilities and limits.
- Successful and relevant experiences of student support services in distance learning higher education institutions.
Research articles (5000 words approx.) may focus on theoretical foundations, concepts, analysis and results of studies regarding student support services in open and distance education, referring to aspects such as students' needs in distance education; need for student support services; overview or comparative analysis of services with a focus on innovative and effective ones; evaluation of student support services; support services for entry and first year students; services for after completion of distance learning programs; use of technologies for students' support; etc.
Innovative practice articles (3000 words approx.) may provide a description and analysis of concrete innovative and effective experiences of student support services in open and distance education: information services; guidance and counselling; library services; retention programs; student support services based on technologies; e-mentoring; peer to peer support services; etc.
Papers must comprise a section devoted to analysis and evaluation of difficulties, opportunities, outcomes, limits, benefits, etc. of experiences and research projects related to student support services in open, distance and flexible education.
In addition to the articles for the special theme, contributions are also invited on other topics which fall within the sphere of interest of the journal, i.e. research and innovation in open, distance and flexible education.
