    Senior female academics’ experiences of mentoring aspirant colleagues’ career progression : the accelerated academic mentoring programme

    Abstract : There has been worldwide concern about the under-representation of women in senior leadership positions in most industries. Globally, higher education has been historically for the privileged societies and a world dominated by men. The need to advance more women leaders in higher education and throughout the workforce is thus important. In a bid to promote and accelerate career progression of fellow aspirant female colleagues and in order to bridge the gap that exists between men and women in senior leadership positions, the University of Johannesburg has been implementing the Accelerated Academic Mentoring Programme (AAMP). This study focused on senior female academics’ experiences of mentoring aspirant female colleagues’ career progression within the University of Johannesburg’s AAMP. The aim of the study was to explore how senior female academics mentor aspirant female colleagues’ career progression at UJ, to understand their experiences and explore the value of senior female academics mentoring aspirant female colleagues’ career progression. The theoretical framework that underpinned the study was transformative educational leadership. This study adopted a transformative research paradigm. A qualitative research approach located in a phenomenological design was used for data collection and interpretation, centred on one-on-one semi-structured interviews. Seven senior female academics within the AAMP from the University of Johannesburg were purposefully selected for the study. Qualitative content analysis techniques were used for analysing the data. Research quality was achieved by providing an audit trail, keeping a reflexive journal and writing thick descriptions. The study revealed that the benefits of mentorship within the AAMP were facilitation of career progression, empowerment of mentees and provision of formal support. Qualities of a good mentor were found to be vast institutional knowledge about the organisational system, exhibition of social skills, exhibition of professional skills, exhibition of leadership skills and the ability to give advice. Inadequate training, a heavy sense of responsibility, iii mentor-mentee mismatch, male dominance and mentoring structure came up as the challenges of female mentors within the AAMP. Furthermore, factors such as hope, time management, planning, maturity, race, acceptance, the willingness to learn and competency were found to be capable of affecting the mentoring process. Insights gained from the study led to the following recommendations: (1) Continuation of the AAMP at the University of Johannesburg; (2) inclusion of additional mentor qualities to be part of the AAMP policy guidelines; (3) critical reorganising of training provided for mentors; (4) caution to be taken against mentor-mentee imposition; and (5) motivating and rewarding the good work of the mentors...M.Ed.

    Aboriginal education officers working at the cultural interface: Nguli yoo boy ngoo Yulling Ngunya

    Get PDF
    The role of an Aboriginal Education Officer is complex and is undertaken by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the school context. Most of the research in this area has occurred from the perspective of teachers and researchers who are non-Indigenous. There is limited research that focuses on Aboriginal Education Officers (AEOs) and what they understand their role is in the school context, from their own perspective. Yet, according to educational policies and initiatives (both past and present), this role is to contribute contextual understanding and culturally appropriate support to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students’ learning. Thus, not only is the role a necessity in addressing Aboriginal students’ learning in a Western-dominated world, it is also significant for these students’ success. The purpose of this research is to explore what AEOs understand their role to be in the school context. In particular, it focuses on the challenges AEOs encounter in their role and their identity as educators in the school context. By studying these phenomena, it is conjectured that this study will impact positively on the way AEOs are utilised in schools

    Od bájných romancí k prohnilé skutečnosti: estetická tradice, proměny a odkaz Keatsova medievalismu

    "Od bájných romancí k prohnilé skutečnosti: estetická tradice, proměny a odkaz Keatsova medievalismu" Cílem mé práce je estetické čtení Keatsových středověkých básní a jejich vizuálního odkazu. Vybrané básně ilustrují vývoj Keatsovy estetiky. Práce postupně rozebírá "Calidore, A Fragment" a "Specimen of an Induction to a Poem" z Keatsovy debutové sbírky z roku 1817, Básně, a následně známější básnické skladby "Isabella, or A Pot of Basil", "La Belle Dame sans Merci" a "The Eve of St. Agnes". Zvolené básně ukazují směřování Keatsova medievalismu a proměny jeho pojetí příběhů "rytířství" ("Specimen", 1) a "staré romance" ("Isabella", 387), do nichž se postupně promítá vliv "prohnilé skutečnosti" ("Isabella", 385). Tato pozdější díla jsou interpretována Prerafaelity, díky nimž Keatsova poezie získává oblibu a proslulost. Práce si klade dvě výzkumné otázky: 1. Jak se vyvíjí Keatsův estetický medievalismus? a 2. Jak je Keatsův pozdější medievalismus pojímán ve výtvarném umění Prerafaelitů a odpovídají tyto interpretace věrně svým zdrojům? Analytická část práce je členěna do pěti kapitol. První z nich načrtne základní rysy romantického obnoveného zájmu o středověk, pojedná o Keatsově raném medievalismu a stavu soudobého poznání středověku. Druhá kapitola je zaměřena esteticky, podává životopisný přehled..."From Tales of Old Romance to Wormy Circumstance: Aesthetic Tradition, Metamorphosis and Legacy of Keats's Medievalism" My thesis aims to provide an aesthetic reading of Keats's medieval poems and their visual legacy. The selected poems illustrate Keats's developing aesthetics, discussing first on "Calidore, A Fragment" and "Specimen of an Induction to a Poem" from his 1817 debut collection Poems and then the more widely known "Isabella, or A Pot of Basil", "La Belle Dame sans Merci" and "The Eve of St. Agnes". This selection shows the direction of Keats's medievalism that reconsiders tales of "chivalry" ("Specimen", 1) and "Old Romance" ("Isabella", 387) as they become affected by "wormy circumstance" ("Isabella", 385). These later works are interpreted by the Pre-Raphaelites who contribute to the popularisation and eternalisation of Keats's poetry. The two research questions this thesis develops are 1. What is the aesthetic evolution of Keats's medievalism? and 2. How is Keats's later medievalism adapted in Pre- Raphaelite visual art, and to what extent these visual interpretations are loyal to their sources? The discussion is divided into five chapters. In the first I will outline the basic features of the Romantic medieval revival, Keats's early medievalism and the critical state of the art in this...Ústav anglofonních literatur a kulturDepartment of Anglophone Literatures and CulturesFilozofická fakultaFaculty of Art
