Moreover, “psychological” crisis, connected with the&nbsp;general “mental illness” of&nbsp;the&nbsp;society is&nbsp;becoming global. “Bringing mind to&nbsp;emotions” is&nbsp;the&nbsp;leading idea of&nbsp;the&nbsp;theory of&nbsp;emotional intelligence of&nbsp;American scientists, who see it&nbsp;as a&nbsp;panacea in&nbsp;the&nbsp;contemporary society. The&nbsp;theory of&nbsp;emotional intelligence, which is&nbsp;widely recognized in&nbsp;the&nbsp;world, is&nbsp;attracting the&nbsp;attention of&nbsp;Ukrainian scientists, in&nbsp;particular, in&nbsp;higher education. Ukrainian scientists interpret the&nbsp;emotional intelligence of&nbsp;the&nbsp;teacher as&nbsp;a&nbsp;personal and&nbsp;professional quality that provides professional acmeological growth, productive, professional, humanistic oriented activity, effective interpersonal communication, stress-protective function. <br>It&nbsp;is&nbsp;concluded, that these criteria should guide the&nbsp;professional training and&nbsp;education of&nbsp;new generation teachers.</p> Ludmila Rakityanska Copyright (c) 2020 The Modern Higher Education Review Thu, 05 Mar 2020 20:04:22 +0000 TEACHING HOW TO WRITE A RESEARCH PAPER <p>The article aims at&nbsp;offering help to&nbsp;lecturers that want to&nbsp;teach their students how to&nbsp;write an&nbsp;acceptable research paper. As&nbsp;grammar and/or syntax can contribute to&nbsp;writing correct sentences but cannot aid students in&nbsp;developing a&nbsp;well-written research paper, lecturers should teach their students how to&nbsp;acquire important skills that will help them to&nbsp;compose a&nbsp;correct research paper. Such skills involve the&nbsp;acquisition of&nbsp;the&nbsp;ability to&nbsp;develop paragraphs, a&nbsp;series of&nbsp;sentences developing one topic, and&nbsp;the&nbsp;composition of&nbsp;a&nbsp;paper through a&nbsp;series of&nbsp;paragraphs that develop several related topics. Paragraphs need to&nbsp;include unity, coherence, transition, reasons – to&nbsp;accept the&nbsp;arguments in&nbsp;the&nbsp;research paper – and&nbsp;some examples in&nbsp;order to&nbsp;give the&nbsp;reasons in&nbsp;the&nbsp;research paper more validity. While long paragraphs can make the&nbsp;reader tired, many short paragraphs can become monotonous and&nbsp;boring. In&nbsp;other words, the&nbsp;length of&nbsp;paragraphs in&nbsp;a&nbsp;research paper is&nbsp;important. So is&nbsp;a&nbsp;closing, a&nbsp;summary sentence for&nbsp;the&nbsp;end of&nbsp;the&nbsp;development of&nbsp;the&nbsp;topic sentence, signalling that the&nbsp;writer is&nbsp;ready to&nbsp;move on&nbsp;to another idea and&nbsp;lists of&nbsp;details, like illustrations, examples, contrast, comparison, cause and&nbsp;effect and&nbsp;a&nbsp;combination of&nbsp;methods. The&nbsp;purpose of&nbsp;the&nbsp;research paper is&nbsp;considered to&nbsp;be&nbsp;of&nbsp;utmost importance and&nbsp;corresponds to&nbsp;one of&nbsp;the&nbsp;four main types of&nbsp;writing, including explanation, argument or&nbsp;mixtures, depending on&nbsp;the&nbsp;title and&nbsp;the&nbsp;central idea. Limiting the&nbsp;subject by&nbsp;providing an&nbsp;outline is&nbsp;helpful in&nbsp;organizing the&nbsp;student’s thoughts and&nbsp;avoiding overlapping. The&nbsp;inclusion of&nbsp;citations and&nbsp;a&nbsp;bibliography are obligatory for&nbsp;diligence in&nbsp;fulfilling the&nbsp;requirements of&nbsp;the&nbsp;university or&nbsp;college.</p> Elizabeth Hatziolou, Stamatia Sofiou Copyright (c) 2020 The Modern Higher Education Review Thu, 05 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0000 SOCIAL WORKERS TRAINING IN CONTINUING EDUCATION SYSTEM <p>The development of&nbsp;a&nbsp;continuing education system is&nbsp;a&nbsp;strategic task of&nbsp;reforming all education systems that consistently define their national-specific characteristics, while at&nbsp;the&nbsp;same time focusing on&nbsp;basic educational principles.<br>The rapid changes in&nbsp;current development of&nbsp;society, related to&nbsp;the&nbsp;humanization of&nbsp;education, the&nbsp;high demands on&nbsp;each member of&nbsp;society, both individual and&nbsp;professional, and&nbsp;make the&nbsp;relevance of&nbsp;adult education as&nbsp;an&nbsp;integral part of&nbsp;continuing education and&nbsp;expanding research in&nbsp;this field.

It was formerly considered as an ambition through which quality education can be achieved, however it has of recent times changed and became the means through which this mantra of quality education and professional mobility can be effectively attained. The knowledge acquisition and transformation, resource mobilization, talent mobilization especially global research as well as curriculum enactment with the international content are considered to be the primary benefits of internationalization of higher education. As much as internationalization hold countless constructive and positive meanings to the performance of higher education and eventually competent human resource development, there are significant challenges that are associated with this multifaceted and growing phenomenon, which among them includes commercial profit, academic colonization and difficulty in ensuring quality education. The reviews show that through higher education internationalization, significant progress can be achieved since the international exposure can influence policies in higher education, which can bring about considerable changes in the entire education system and education institutions across the world. This paper used Chinese higher education to examine the challenges and the potential of benefits of internationalization of higher education. It implies reviews of articles with respect to internationalization of higher education in the context of china as the papers methodology. Based on this review the paper ascertained several benefits of higher education internationalization in China which include quality human resources, skills development and exposure, professional mobility and research development, it also highlighted potential challenges which included academic colonization, low quality education standards and brain drain hence the paper recommends that, there should a proper system for evaluating students who go to study abroad and proper structure of tuition payment.</p> Pontian Kabeera Copyright (c) 2020 The Modern Higher Education Review Sun, 08 Mar 2020 10:19:27 +0000 READING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GREEK DYSLEXIC AND NON-DYSLEXIC UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN GREECE <p>Until recently the vast majority of dyslexia research focused on English-speaking and children population, who tend to read significantly slower but mainly inaccurately, due to the inconsistency of the English language. This led to the wrong assumption that the main feature of dyslexia is inaccurate reading. However, results of research in phonologically consistent languages, such as Greek, Italian, German, Finnish, showed that reading speed is the main deficit of dyslexic readers in either children or adult population. The aim of this research was to investigate the differences in reading performance (reading speed, accuracy and comprehension) between Greek dyslexic university students and age-matched normal controls. A group of 26 Greek dyslexic university students was compared to a group of 28 non-dyslexics matched for age, sex and socio-educational level.<br>All participants in the dyslexic group had a formal diagnosis of dyslexia. Results showed that dyslexics attained statistically significantly slower reading speed and made more reading errors compared to controls in all testing procedures (p&lt;.001). However, dyslexics read at almost the same speed in both the aloud and silent reading conditions (p&gt;.05) in contrast to non-dyslexics who read significantly faster in the silent condition (p&lt;.05). Greek dyslexic university students were accurately differentiated from non-dyslexics based on the reading speed only (accuracy level 98.1%).</p> Sofia Rapti, George Pavlidis Copyright (c) 2020 The Modern Higher Education Review Sun, 08 Mar 2020 11:44:41 +0000
