ItemAn application of video recording technology to enhance the key leader engagement performance at SWCS(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2021) Burgess, Timothy GuyIn this study, video recording technology was introduced into a classroom of military students to enhance Key Leader Engagement (KLE) performance. The main objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of using video recording technology in improving the students' level of performance in the Special Forces Warrant Officer Technical and Tactical Certification at the U.S. Army Special Warfare Center and School. All students were required to participate in several practical exercises that were designed to give each student practice at participating in a KLE. For all students, each iteration of the KLE practical exercises was video recorded and scored. A quasi-experimental study using the video recording technology was used to collect data on each student's Key Leader Engagement performance. This research also incorporated a qualitative survey to determine the students' perspectives concerning the use and effectiveness of the video recording technology during KLE training. Data from the quasi- experiment was analyzed using a paired t-test. Results revealed that the use of the video recording technology made a positively significant difference from one performance of the KLE to the next, demonstrating that video recording technology employment in improving students' level of performance between iterations of KLEs was effective. The survey results show that majority of the participants think that the use of the SPOTLITE video recording technology during the After Action Review (AAR)/Counseling session helped them to become aware of their actions during each Key Leader Engagement (KLE), that the use of the SPOTLITE video recording technology during the After Action Review (AAR)/Counseling session helped them to improve their skills during a Key Leader Engagement (KLE), and that the SPOTLITE video recording technology was used correctly/effectively.
ItemA comparative study of students' perceptions towards uniform policy at an international college in BangkokThe purpose of this study was to use a framework of andragogy to identify the perceptions of international college students towards their school’s uniform policy, and to compare the students’ perceptions based on their age group, nationality, and level of conformity. This study focused on 178 undergraduate students studying at the international college of a Thai university in Bangkok during the fall semester of the 2019-2020 academic year. All data was obtained through a questionnaire which was completed by the students. A quantitative comparative method was used to analyze the data. The research findings indicate that overall, students perceive the uniform policy to be partially andragogical, and that some aspects of the policy were perceived to be less andragogical than others. The findings also showed that there is a significant difference in the students’ perceptions according to nationality and conformity levels, but no significant difference according to age group. Based on the results of this study, the recommendation for administrators is to identify the variables which influence the perceptions of their students and consider them before modifying, implementing, or enforcing uniform policies at their institutions. This will help administrators ensure that students perceive the policy as one which is suitable for their learning context.
