    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to explore academic motivation variables (growth mindset, task value, academic self-efficacy, and outcome expectation) that predict academic achievement of cyber university students. Then this study aimed to determine whether there is a difference in academic motivation variables between groups according to the type of changes in their academic achievement. To achieve this purpose, academic motivation variables were measured for 263 adult learners at A Cyber ​University, and their mid-term and final exam scores were collected. First, a hierarchical multiple regression analysis was performed to check whether the academic motivation variable predicts the mid-term and final exam scores significantly. Next, in order to check whether there is a difference in the academic motivation variables according to the type of changes in achievement from the mid-term to the final exam, the deviation scores of the mid-term and the final exam were divided into three groups based on the 30% percentile, and One-way ANOVA analysis was performed to confirm the difference. As a result of the analysis, first, the task difficulty preference and task value positively predicted both the mid-term and final exams, and the extrinsic outcome expectation negatively predicted. Also, the growth mindset negatively predicted the final exam. Second, there was a significant difference in the self-regulation efficacy of academic self-efficacy among the groups by type of change in academic achievement from the mid-term to the final exam.

    Abstract PDF
    This qualitative research was conducted to deeply understand the process of student teaching in adult literacy education with the recognition of in-service teachers who participated as coaches. Three teachers in the adult literacy educational institution in G city were selected as research participants. Data was collected through in-depth interviews and analyzed using the constant comparison method. The analysis derived three meaningful findings: (1) teachers recognized that student teachers needed to respect and understand the nature of adult literacy education; (2) they had opportunities to introspect their careers through the coaching experiences; and (3) they recognized that it is necessary to reform the student teaching policy to improve the effectiveness in adult literacy education.

    From ‘Role of Parents’ to ‘Becoming Parents’: Feminist Perspective for the New Paradigm of Parent Education

    jung minseung | 2022, 18(3) | pp.55~76 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In the sense that education promotes the continuous progress of human beings, it aims for an identity as a lifelong learner, which is basically linked with the educational philosophy of parents. However, although everyone agrees that parents have a great influence on their children, little attention has been paid to how parenting is being formed in our society at the educational level. Recognizing significance of the social and cultural norms of parenting, this study explores the norms of parenting in the field of lifelong education and construe new principles of parent education through feminist perspective. After the literature review of parenting, this study find three hypothesis of parent education. First, the existing parent education combines the gender imbalance of father/mother (in Korean, the word ‘parent’ is divided into father and mother). Second, reflection and confession on the original parents internalized in parents is the key process of new parenting. And the last, the search for heterogeneous parent communities that the existing parent education misses is the basis of new practice of parenting. This has a meaning as a transitional attempt to re-examine the existing parent education from the perspective of ‘becoming a new parent’ beyond the perspective of role-oriented parent education within the framework of the family.

    Rethinking the Concept of Competency in the Context of Lifelong Learning

    Euna Yang | 2022, 18(3) | pp.77~115 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study raises the awareness that the fundamental aspects of human ability have been concealed and covered in attempts to define human ability within the cycle of competence, performance, and capital so far. Therefore, in this study, the philosophical foundation of competency and its meaning were derived in the context of lifelong learning, centering on Spinoza’s philosophy, which is defined as the ‘philosophy of competence’ or ‘ontology of competence’. To this end, the core issues and problems were derived by critically examining the various definitions and uses of the concept of ‘competence’ in the context of lifelong learning, as well as the underlying assumptions and discussions. Second, the basic perspective and foundation of Spinoza’s philosophical system, which this study takes as the theoretical basis for the exploration of competence, was checked. It was then examined how the concept and characteristics of competence were identified. Third, the relationship and meaning of lifelong education of Spinoza’s concept of potentia and nature were explored on the basis of this study’s problem setting. Fourth, by presenting the perspective and dimension of competencies that should be considered differentially in the horizon of lifelong learning, the corresponding implications were consequently discussed. The study drew main themes such as ① the ecological characteristics of competency and reinforcement of the relational ability, ② the increase in transforming competence, ③ the competence to create desire as the creation of existence, and ④ the performance ability of the embodied sense of practice. Finally, based on the argument of the ecology, anti-purposefulness, and diversity of Spinoza’s potentia, the ‘selective limitations’ of existing studies were revealed, and the need for diversification of perspectives to understand human competence was discussed.

    Abstract PDF
    Lots of instructors extend their career field to YouTube and then they supplied their learning contents through YouTube. Based on these observations, the purpose of this study was to investigate lifelong learning instructor’ characteristics as partial free labor and concerns as educator in YouTube. For the purpose, the framework was developed based on the reviews on the perspectives of partial free labor. The qualitative data were collected from 16 interviewees who were lifelong learning instructors in high ranks on hits and the number of searches. The results were followings: First, the labor of lifelong learning instructors showed the characteristics of partial free labor. Second, the instructors faced the limits of free labor in experiencing overwork and no-benefit. Third, some instructors transit free labor to wage labor through the contracts with MCN. But the instructors with wage labor still experienced the separation, non-freedom and the oppressed situations. Based on these results, some implications were discussed.
