Student Satisfaction and Diversity
The study is devised to grasp the relationship between student satisfaction in the diverse cultural and faculty patterns. The ultimate goal of all the contemporary societies of the world is to maintain and promote gender equality. Human race has always suffered dramatically whenever it has tried to stigmatize either of the two genders. But yet many under developed and third world countries are still not able to understand the importance of gender equality and the synergy this process yields. Cultivating, raising, and promoting gender equality is a global agenda, and gender mainstreaming is one out of many techniques that have been devised to promote gender equality at all levels. Education as a matter of subtle reality is the core competency that defines the knowledge, skill and abilities of an individual are therefore reported to have a lifelong impact on the life of an individual. Therefore satisfaction or dissatisfaction has a key role to play on all the societies of the world. The following paper tends to decode the correlation behavior explained in terms of quantitative approach to understand the relationship between the faculty diversity awareness and diverse student satisfaction with teachers. The real sample of students with diverse backgrounds and faculty members was dram, the nature of this sample is an inconvenience sample, and the results drawn from the study are tested against the hypotheses at a confidence interval of 95% and the 5% level of significance.
Satisfaction is a broad term that encompasses many attributes possessed and reflected in the personality of an individual. Moreover the administration and faculty of the colleges and universities are paying keener attention of the important factors associated with the student satisfaction. Considering the attitudes pertaining to the general approach of satisfaction, it has been observed that satisfied students and more apt to sustain the pressures and enjoy the privileges of the studies at their educational institutes (Hill & Epps, 2010).
Among diverse methods of teaching, lectures can be an effective way, at least time-wise, and still prevails from elementary schools up to colleges and universities, and to work places. It may be assumed that quietly listening students are actively learning, yet there has been little work on what is involved in learning from lectures. It has been repeatedly reported once that a lecture given at a right time, that is., after having students engage in active groping of data to raise their intellectual motivation, yielded better understanding than both lecture alone or groping alone. This is an informative research, but does not tell us much about how to construct a lecture itself, or how to scaffold students, who have needs to cope with lectures without much time allowed to raise their motivation and/or groping with data.
It has long been observed that the process of learning of satisfied students as compared to dissatisfied creed of diverse students. They both require students to engage in an active set of knowledge integration. The process involves following activities.
Decomposition of the elementary components,
Identification of the roles of each component,
Select components relevant to the topic and to the receiver's concerns,
Connect and integrate selected components into a coherent comprehension, and
Take care of remaining comments and questions. (Smith & Roehrs, 2009)
Though most of the steps should be obvious, the second step might need some explanation. The roles of components can be identified by answering questions why the components are sequenced as they are in the text/lecture and then connecting them. This step helps reveal the structure of the text/lecture. As texts are externalized, tangible objects, readers can mark their components and leave memos of their roles, for future reflection and reconstruction. Because lectures do not share these characteristics, it is no surprise that learning from lectures is harder than learning from texts (Gallagher & McCormick, 1999)
1.1: Purpose of Study
The study is devised to grasp the relationship between the student satisfaction in the diverse cultural and faculty patterns. The ultimate goal of all the contemporary societies of the world is to maintain and promote gender equality. Human race has always suffered dramatically whenever it has tried to stigmatize either of the two genders. But yet many under developed and third world countries are still not able to understand the importance of gender equality and the synergy this process yields. Cultivating, raising, and promoting gender equality is a global agenda, and gender mainstreaming is one out of many techniques that have been devised to promote gender equality at all levels (Feng Liu, Lin & Chang, 2010).
Gender mainstreaming is an extensive process of evaluating the proposition of either gender in a way that the responsibilities and tasks are divided on the basis of merit rather that gender at all the levels in a society. It implies to the strategic analysis that creates a sense of goodwill among either of the gender. Hence the basic goal that runs behind the phenomena is the essential utilization of the skills and experience of men and women in all the spheres of economic and political life. The major concern of the effort is the eradication of injustice and inequality (House, 1999, p. 423).The basic reason why the gender mainstreaming has become a global concern is mainly because of the concept of gender neutrality. The programs, activities and policy formation that seek to form a vague impression of task allocation may regard themselves as gender neutral but the scenario may be vice-a-versa, the organizations are thereby instructed to form and give a clear ratio of task allocation men and women. But yet the point must be kept in mind that gender mainstreaming does not only intends to advocate the involvement of women in all the functional aspects of a society but it gives expressed and implied indications of task allocation on equality basis (Roszkowski, 2003). Gender mainstreaming calls for specified activities for specific gender and the declaration of justified equality among the two major halves of the global population- the male and the female. The process is a clear depiction of upbringing the skills, familiarity, acquaintance and cumulative concentration of men and women to stand over the agenda development (Arbaugh, 2001).
1.2: Significance of Study
Gender mainstreaming and effective development are the two interknitted terms. As one is the outcome of other so the fact is worth admitting that men and women both contribute to make the social, political, and economic development of a society possible. There are many fields where the services of the women can bring about dramatic results for example flight hosting, medical sector, education and agriculture and similarly men efficient participation in the fields of military is a remarkable benefit to the society and largely humanity (Sorey, 2008).
It would rather be more authentic if one acknowledges that men and women are the two major pillars of the economic stability, growth and well being (Carr, Davies & Lavin, 2010). It is hereby regarded that gender mainstreaming is not the process that focus on prompting the rights and workplace share of women only but it is rather an act of promoting the equality of opportunities for either gender depending on the credibility and merit. Together the two genders can set and chase the agenda of economic and societal well being of a region (Parayitam, Desai & Phelps, 2007)
The hypotheses that will be serving as the mainstream of the research work are
There is a direct relationship between the method of reaching and the ethnic belonging of the teachers
The satisfaction of the students is different depending on the gender
There is a direct relationship between the diversity of faculty and students dissatisfaction
The faculty is not impacted by the nature of the diverse student group that they have to entertain in the class
1.4: Literature Review
Society is collective term that explains the cumulative impact of cultural, political, and economic factors on the lives of the people sharing common values. A civil society is rather a more complex term that besides establishing the relationships between the societal organizations. One of the basic forces that have a lasting impact on the society at large is the political institutions. They are powerful in a way that they generate potent effects and in turn are responsible for modeling the society as per their prescribed patterns and models. But the fact is almost inevitable that the modern and contemporary can ever be non-diverse. With the societies becoming more and more diverse the fact needs utter acceptance that diversity is the wanted or even in some case the unwanted by product of process of globalization and the immigration of human capital (Fountain & Alfred, 2009).
