This article offers a proposal for using film as supplements for future therapists’ education in respect of the social construction of their relations with patients. A film pedagogy proves indispensable in a pandemic situation, when empirical therapeutic practice becomes impossible. The analysis refers to the concepts of pedagogy of cinema and mediated experience and points to a proposal of an exemplification of their functioning in the form of a selected cinematic picture (“Three Christs”, 2017), based on an actual psychotherapeutical experiment undertaken by Milton Rokeach at the Ypsilanti clinic.
The aim of this paper is to analyse the influence of Stanisław Lem’s works, an outstanding representative of Polish science fiction, philosopher and futurologist, on the shape of reality in which we currently function. Undoubtedly, Lem’s writings are a collection of predictions that describe, with unprecedented accuracy, the technologies of virtual reality, nanotechnology, biotechnology or robotics long before they were created. Are we living in a world that was described by one man many years ago? The research method used in this study is the content analysis of the selected novels by Stanisław Lem and the analysis of available secondary data. Let us therefore examine, on the one hand, the predictions of the Polish writer related to the development of the latest technologies, the advent of which he forecasted many years before they were created, and, on the other hand, let us consider what social consequences resulting from such a rapid progress in the field of technology the Polish futurologist warns us about.
The coronavirus pandemic has turned out to be the biggest challenge the modern educational systems across the world have ever faced. Many teachers observed as their well-being plummeted as they started to overwhelmingly worry about the health of their families, as they were facing confusing instructions, unclear expectations or technical difficulties. The purpose of this qualitative study is to diagnose the role of educational coaching in stimulating the well-being of teachers during the pandemic of COVID-19. The results indicate that educational coaching can help teachers improve their well-being during the pandemic when teachers need to change their role - from classroom to remote - and succeed under a new set of circumstances.
This article presents the findings of an experimental study, the goal of which was to compare the average evaluation scores of university teachers given by students on the basis of the manner of delivering lectures and organising the teaching process at the university. This empirical field was problematised using three ethics hidden in the organisation of the teaching activities: the ethic of justice (Kohlberg), the ethic of one-sided care (Gilligan), and the ethic of care and responsibility (Gilligan). The study encompassed three groups of students who attended an entire teaching series (lectures), after completion of which the experimenter was evaluated by the students. The only difference was belonging to a given group (i.e., the style of working with the students). The remaining aspects of the teaching activities were very uniform. The experimenter was given the lowest evaluation scores when being fair and balancing care with responsibility, and the highest scores when one-sidedly caring for the students’ well-being.
The rapid inventions of social media in current era have changed the wellbeing of human lives. The current study aimed to explore the correlation between social media usage and undergraduate students’ psychological wellbeing in Mirpur, Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Two research instruments were used in this study Social Media Addiction Scale-Student Form (SMAS-SF) and Flourishing Scale (FS). The first scale measures the usage capacity of social media and the second measures the psychological wellbeing of undergraduate students. The correlation between the scores obtained from the scales was determined by applying Pearson correlation formula. The positive correlation between social media usage and psychological wellbeing of undergraduate students has been found in this study. The other finding related to most preferred social media concluded that WhatsApp was most preferable social media among undergraduate students. 61% undergraduate students used the WhatsApp to engage their daily life in using social media.
A growing number of arts therapists around the world work in schools, but information on their practices is limited. The aim of this work is to examine the theoretical influences and therapeutic trends prevalent in Czech educational institutions. Data obtained from 142 respondents were collected using the “Practice of Arts Therapies” questionnaire. Based on a statistical analysis of the responses, the results show that therapists prefer predominantly humanistic trends with a wide range of other therapeutic influences based on assimilative integration tendencies. Contrary to the initial assumptions, it was found that there is little difference in the preferences for trends in different work environments. The results can be used for international comparisons of arts therapies in the educational environment, as they seem to be an important area of interdisciplinary practice associated with education.
The given article highlights an experimental study and pilot stereotype-oriented teaching aimed at an effective perspective of Korean and Ukrainian intercultural communication. Fifty-four Korean students of the faculty of Ukrainian studies at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies took part in this project. The aim of the research consisted in determining and explaining the contents of ethnic stereotypes concerning Ukraine and the Ukrainians, which are common among Korean students. In addition, the study meant not only to develop effective means to overcome stereotypes, but also to offer ways how to manage them through stereotype-oriented teaching. The procedure of the analysis went through several stages: (a) revealing stereotypes through anonymous surveys among students; (b) quantitative and qualitative analysis of the data obtained; (c) stereotype-oriented / destereotyped teaching and feedback from the students. The experimental study has disproven certain fears of some researchers that stereotypes cannot be taught and spread within the learning process.
The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of place of living on psychological well-being of students studying in senior secondary schools and to test for interaction effects of place of living and academic achievement on psychological well-being. The analyzed data set contained information on 519 boys and girls in the 11t grade from the Kashmir valley of Jammu and Kashmir India. The study has a survey type design. Psychological well-being scale developed by Dr. Devendra Singh Sisodia and Ms. Pooja Choudhary (2012) has been used. The marks obtained in science by students served as the indicator of academic achievement. The statistical analysis was 2 ×3 (ANOVA) factorial designs. Results reveal a significant effect of the place of living on psychological well-being and show no significant interaction effect between the academic achievement levels (groups) in science and the place of living in terms of the psychological well-being of senior secondary students.
