Makale Başlığı: The Role of Student Engagement in Student Outcomes in Higher Education: Implications from a Developing Country

Makale Öz/ Abstract: This study aims to develop an engagement scale in higher education in a developing country context experiencing a rapid massification in its higher education system and includes an administration of this newly developed engagement scale to examine the association between student engagement and outcomes. Accordingly, the engagement scale was developed and administrated in a four-year state university in Turkey. Findings showed that the model established with engagement dimensions significantly explains the GPA, odds of being satisfied with the university experience, and the odds of pursuing postgraduate studies. Moreover, learning strategies played a mediating role between hours devoted to academic studies and GPA. Similarly, interaction with faculty mediates between several student characteristics and the odds of planning to pursue postgraduate studies.

Makale Başlığı: Geographies of Participation in Learning Abroad Mobility Among European Youth: A Comparison of Student and Non-Student Groups in the EU Member States

Makale Öz/ Abstract: In recent decades, learning abroad mobility has become a popular movement and has often been considered among students in higher education. However, in the European Union (EU) context, opportunities to learn abroad are also provided for non-student groups of youth. Accordingly, this study aims to examine the role of certain socioeconomic factors concerning participation in learning abroad mobility and to compare their contribution between students and non-student groups of youth in six country groups in the EU. In so doing, a quantitative method was followed by using the data of Flash Eurobarometer 478. Findings of the multinomial logistic regression analyses show that although there is no significant difference between the EU15 and NMS (new member states) regarding young people’s participation in learning abroad mobility, such difference occurs within the NMS. Students are more likely than nonstudents to participate in general. The age of students, being female and living in rural areas among non-students can also hinder participation.

Makale Adı: Makerspace: Innovation in mechanical engineering education

Makale Öz/ Abstract: The complexity of industrial developments requires engineering students to have hands on experience as well as theoretical engineering knowledge. There is a need for a change of classical engineering curriculums. Makerspaces can be a crucial part of this change. They are introduced as physical locations where engineering student’s curiosity is fed and solutions to problems are found through teamwork. Their use in higher education can also provide an opportunity for students to engage in experiential learning. They can develop a large range of soft skills that traditional undergraduate curriculum is unable to provide, such as planning, teamwork, critical thinking and communication. There are still limited studies about the full effect and impact of these spaces in teaching and learning, from the pedagogical perspective. The aim of this study is to determine students’ experiences with such spaces and examine how makerspaces are contributing to their learning. Descriptive research method (one-on-one interviews and normative survey) were used to evaluate students, graduate assistants and a faculty members’ perception of the space and depict the situation. The results of this study showed that students want more than theoretical knowledge from their engineering education. They want to be able to gain hands on experience while they are learning theory. While designing a makerspace for that purpose, the sustainability and the functioning of these spaces should be taken into consideration. The findings of this study can provide guidance for the institutions that are planning to build a makerspace in their campuses.

Makale Adı: Gender roles during COVID‐19 pandemic: The experiences of Turkish female academics

Makale Öz/ Abstract : This study aims to explore the COVID‐19 experiences of Turkish female academics in terms of gender roles by focusing on how these women have dealt with domestic and academic responsibilities. The study group consisted of 21 female academics working from home, along with their spouses. Interpretative phenomenological analysis was used to analyze the data collected through semistructured telephone interviews. The findings were clustered under five main themes: the early days of the pandemic, work life after the pandemic, domestic responsibilities after the pandemic, family relationships after the pandemic, and the perception of gender roles. The results indicate that the pandemic has deepened gender inequalities, and the academic life of female academics has changed in terms of academic productivity. Therefore, we recommend that more research examining the quarantine process and involving women in other occupations and of different socioeconomic statuses should be done to develop more effective social policies.

Makale adı: Türkiye’de Yükseköğretim Kurumlarının Bilimsel Üretkenliğinin İzlenmesi: Mevcut Durum Analizi ve Öneriler

Makale Öz: Uluslararası platformlarda benimsenmiş pek çok üniversite sıralama sistemi bulunmaktadır ve bu sıralama sistemlerinin ortak noktası, bilimsel üretkenlikle ilgili ölçütlere verdikleri önceliklerdir. Bu noktada, kurumlarını daha üst basamaklara çıkarmak isteyen devlet ve kurum yetkilileri, ilgili performans göstergelerini yakından ve etkin bir şekilde izlemeye ihtiyaç duymaktadır. Bu çalışma, kurumların bilimsel üretkenlik düzeylerini nasıl izlediklerini ve gelişmiş kurumlarda yer alan uygulama bileşenlerini ve politikaları ne kadar benimsediklerini ortaya koymaktadır. Form eşliğinde temsili bir örneklem grubuyla yapılan birebir görüşmelerden ve kurumların çevrim içi duyuru kanallarından elde edilen veriler özetlenerek sunulmaktadır. Elde edilen veriler ışığında, sorunların ortaya çıkmasına neden olan tüm durumlar daha görünür hâle getirilmekte ve çözüm önerileri geliştirilmektedir. Genel bulgular, performans izleme süreçlerinin birbirinden farklılık gösterse de, her kurumda var olduğunu, ancak bazı önemli performans boyutlarının tüm kurumlar tarafından etkin biçimde izlenemediğini göstermektedir. Örneğin, belirli akademik performans göstergelerinin dikkate alınmasına rağmen, gösterge değerlerinin iyileştirilmesine yönelik hedef ve politikaların stratejik planlarda net olarak ifade edilmesinde ve alan bazlı takip edilmesinde eksiklikler olduğu görülmektedir.

Makale Abstract: In the rapidly developing and changing world, higher education institutions have taken their places among the institutions struggling in global competition conditions. With the educational processes, the opportunities they provide to their students, employees, researchers and society, and the values they create with these stakeholders, these institutions are in an effort to progress in the ranking steps. There are many university ranking systems adopted on international platforms, and the common point of these ranking systems is the priorities they give to the criteria for scientific productivity. At this point, authorities who want to move their institutions to upper levels need to closely and effectively monitor the relevant performance indicators. This study reveals how institutions monitor their scientific productivity levels and how much they adopt implementation components and policies in well-developed institutions. Data obtained from one-to-one interviews with a representative sample group accompanied by a form and from online announcement channels of institutions are summarized and presented. In the light of the data, all situations that cause problems to occur are made more visible and solutions are suggested. General findings show that although performance monitoring processes differ from each other, they exist in every institution, but some important performance dimensions cannot be monitored by all institutions in an efficient way. For example, although particular academic performance indicators are taken into account, it is observed that there are deficiencies in clearly expressing the goals and policies towards the improvement of the indicator values in the strategic plans and following them on a field basis.

Makale Adı: The Lived Experiences of Faculty Members with Disabilities in Turkish Universities: Implications for Higher Education Leadership and Management

Makale Öz/ Abstract : One of the most neglected forms of diversity, disability, often results in discrimination in a community. Nevertheless, more higher education institutions are working toward creating more inclusive settings, even though this work predominantly regards students with disabilities, not much of faculty members. The study examined the faculty members’ lived experiences with disabilities in their work-life in higher education institutions in Turkey. Faculty work and disability are the two main issues of this study. While the social model of disability mainly guides the research to examine the concept of disability, faculty work theory helps to contextualize the concept in a higher education setting. This study is phenomenological research carried out with semi-structured interviews with 15 participants. Overall results showed that the faculty members mostly experience exclusion shaped by colleagues, administrators, and institutions. Both encouraging and inhibiting faculty members’ experiences depend on their colleagues, university, type of institution, type of disability, and mainly the administrative attitude. To promote faculty members’ full participation in academic life, higher education leaders are expected to restrain the exclusion of the faculty members with disabilities and be committed to offering complete accessibility on campuses.
