Developing Pedagogical Culture of Parents in Kharkiv

Journal of Advocacy, Research and Education, 2018, 5(3): 97-102.

This article explored the essence and components of parents’ pedagogical culture development using a mixed-methods approach. One hundred and eighty-two parents whose children study at secondary schools of Kharkiv were sampled randomly for this study. At the initial stage of the pedagogical experiment, parents were interviewed and subsequently made to fill questionnaires. At this stage, participants had low scores for all indicators. Subsequently, participants were subdivided into experimental and control subgroups. In the experimental subgroup, a methodology for parents’ pedagogical culture development was administered while traditional knowledge on parenting was discussed among the control subgroup. Post-test results following this phase indicated that the experimental subgroup performed better than the control. This study has implications for policy, research and social interventions for parents.

Notes on Ergon and Ponos in Plato

Journal of Advocacy, Research and Education, 2018, 5(3): 115-119.

Do the words ‘labour’ and ‘work’ carry the same or different meanings? Can they be used interchangeably, and under what contexts? While we find that in the English language and other European languages, such “etymologically unrelated words” are considered as reflecting the same activity, they could mean different or similar things depending on their contexts. In this brief paper, I show how this is the case in Plato’s use of ergon (work) and ponos (labour).

Employing Psychologist Assistants in Ghana: A Needful Cry

Journal of Advocacy, Research and Education, 2018, 5(3): 120-121.

Psychologist assistants in Ghana are graduates with bachelor’s degrees in psychology who have been registered by the Ghana Psychological Council. They work under professional psychologists to deliver psychological services and are effective in providing basic psychological first aid in many work settings. Though a common practice in countries like the United Kingdom and United States of America to recruit psychologist assistants, not much has been done in Ghana. By recruiting psychologist assistants, it will provide them the opportunity support licensed psychologists in fields such as education, health, business, security and sports. Thereby, providing a source of employment. In addition, this effort will serve as a means to gain relevant work experience for postgraduate training in psychology. This will decrease the unemployment rate of graduates with psychology and advance the discipline of psychology in Ghana.
