Designer Competency of the Fashion Design Undergraduate Students in Thailand: A Need Assessment Perspective

Abstract

This study used a mixed approach research design. The objectives were to study employers’ and college instructors’ needs regarding the designer competencies of undergraduate fashion-design students in Thailand, and to propose a guideline for the development of designer competencies of undergraduate fashion-design students in Thailand. For the quantitative approach, the research samples included 250 business owners/designers and 163 college instructors from fashion design faculties in Thai universities. A questionnaire was used as the research instrument. Data were collected by email. A “need-assessment analysis” technique was implemented in the data analysis. Regarding the qualitative approach, 15 key informants were interviewed via the interview script. A “content analysis” technique was used to analyse the qualitative data in this research. The results revealed that the employers’ need for improved components of knowledge competencies was consistent with the need of college instructors: both placed a priority on the development of language knowledge, followed by product-management knowledge, innovative knowledge and design knowledge. The employers’ need for improved components of skill competencies was consistent with the need of college instructors: both placed a priority on the development of language skills, followed by product-management skills, innovative and technology skills, and design skills. The employers’ need for improvement of qualification competencies was consistent with the need of college instructors: both placed a priority on the social role, followed by inner drive and self-conceptualisation, respectively. However, the findings indicated a difference between their needs: employers found that none of the qualification competencies needed rapid development, whereas college instructors indicated that one component needed rapid improvement – the social role.

Equality Plans and Gender Perception in University Students

Abstract

Despite the growing interest in the subject, the gender perceptions in the context of university studies have not been sufficiently studied so far. In this contribution, what is being proposed is a practical approach in the Spanish university system assessing the progress regarding the perception of equality among students receiving training on gender perspective in the framework of an Equality Plan. For this purpose, a case study was designed by assessing the progress as regards equality perceptions in the student body of the Universidad de Valencia Estudio General (UVEG). 338 students in grades filled out questionnaires on gender both before (225) and after (113) receiving a course in gender training. Results show Equality Plans with gender training significantly improves gender perception in university students. Academic institutions can play an essential role in ensuring developing Equality Plans with initiatives in education concerning gender equality.

Expected Learning Outcomes: A Confirmatory Factor Analysis of Higher Education in Interior Architecture and Interior Design for the Thailand Development

Abstract

Nowadays, the standard of professional education, interior architecture and interior design at higher education in Thailand must meet the certification criteria from the Professional Council. However, the expected learning outcomes results in the past studies has not studied the components of expected learning outcomes that are explicit and consistent with the 20-Year National Strategy. The researchers therefore aim to study such components to lead to the development of a standard measurement model to further expected learning outcomes. The researchers synthesized the initial components through the document to create and develop a questionnaire to evaluate the level of performance by estimating 5 levels and collect data with the senior students in the curriculum that has been approved by the Professional Council. Divided into 362 samples in the analysis of survey elements and 364 samples in Confirmatory Factor Analysis by Cluster Random Sampling from state and private universities. The survey component analysis resulted in 6 components along with confirmatory factor analysis of empirical component. The results of the sequence analysis of weight components from descending order as follows: Cognitive for profession skill (CP)=.96 Interpersonal relationship and responsibility skill (IR)=.89 In numerical communication and information technology skill(NC)=.87 Profession future of Thailand skill (PF)=.85 Knowledge for Professional practice skill (KPP)=.73 Moral and ethical skill (ME) =.67.

Gender Role Attitudes among Higher Education Students in Jordan

Abstract

Youth are the change agents of any society, therefore, it is critical to identify their attitudes toward gender roles. The study utilizes a social survey approach, where a stratified random sample is selected from the study population, which consists of Jordanian youth who are enrolled at the University of Jordan in Amman, Jordan. The size of the sample is 848 youth, with 33.5% (N=284) males and 66.5% females (N=564). A survey, based on two scales, is developed to measure youth’s attitudes toward gender roles: the gender professions scale and the gender skills scale. The study also examines the effect of the following variables: age, type of college, place of residence, monthly income, and educational level of the mother. The analysis uses statistical methods to recognize differences in attitudes, to understand the relationship between the independent and dependent variables, and to determine statistical significance (set at p ≤ 0.05). The results show that the attitudes of female youth toward gender roles are nontraditional in comparison to those of their male counterparts. Moreover, attitudes toward gender roles tend to be gender-balanced among older youth who live in urban areas, study in humanitarian colleges, and whose mother’s educational level is high. The study highlights the importance of institutionalizing the concept of gender in higher educational institutions.

Implementation of Inclusive Education in Schools Under Local Government Jurisdiction: A Study of South Kalimantan Province in Indonesia

Abstract

This paper examines the practice of inclusive education in schools under the jurisdiction of South Kalimantan Province, Indonesia. According to law, the education system must be inclusive; therefore, schools are required to acknowledge all groups of kids, incorporating those with special educational needs (SEN). This study highlights the state of inclusive education in schools, which includes the implementation of its policies by school administrators, proper management by teachers, and the community’s perception. Primary data were obtained from surveys and interviews with 100 school administrators, 500 teachers, 45 parents of SEN students, and numerous stakeholders. The study shows that local government policies have resulted in the development of inclusive education in schools located in South Kalimantan. It also indicates that, most school leaders and parents of non-SEN students support its utilization in classrooms, and are willing to work with SEN students. In practice, the implementation of inclusive education varies from one school to another depending on the perceptions of administrators and the will of teachers.

Knowledge, Input-Output Complexity and the Notion of Sustainability

Abstract

The paper attempts to synthesize the analytical nucleus of classical political economy and modern ecological economics. In essence this means making a connection between social issues of income distribution, accumulation of capital and economic growth with biophysical limits to economic development. We first model a simple growing system of production and explore its potential to maintain sustainability when using a single natural resource. Taking into consideration the laws of thermodynamics we show that the long-term sustainability of such a simple system is unlikely. When the model is extended to incorporate a wider range of inputs used and commodities produced, such complexity accompanied by knowledge-based structural changes provides necessary conditions for the long-run sustainability of a growing economic system. Since input-output complexity results from the division of labour on the one hand and from intentional R&D policies on the other, this conclusion also brings forward some policy implications regarding income distribution in the society.
