Work Stress And Job Satisfaction Among Efl Teachers Working In Kuwait Public Schools (Published)

The focus of the study is to measure the stress and job satisfaction among EFL Teachers working in public schools in Kuwait. Several research questions were introduced to examine the relationships of the research variables. These questions and the hypotheses were as follow: (a) What is the average level of job satisfaction expressed by EFL teachers working in public schools in Kuwait? (b) Is there a gender difference in the average satisfaction among expressed EFL teachers working in public schools in Kuwait? and (c) What are the most predictable factors to job satisfaction among expressed EFL teachers working in public schools in Kuwait? Teachers were administered the modified Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ). This study indicates that Kuwait EFL teachers were either dissatisfied with their job due to their work stress environment or exposure to their job and supervision requirements. Areas such as leadership and peers, school infrastructure, the school’s relationship with its local community, workload, staff supervision, class size, school communication networks, and ability utilization were the most satisfying areas reported. Meanwhile, compensation, school policies, and supervision-human relations were least satisfied in this study. A replication study involving a larger sample of males would be useful to add to our empirical database in this area.

Discovering Consumer Intentions toward the Adoption of Cloud Computing In Higher Education Institutions in Kuwait (Published)

Cloud computing has grown immensely over the past few years in the Information Technology field. Optimism for supplier of cloud service and the possible risks associated with privacy and security of users is essential factors for implementation of successful and suitable cloud. Therefore, the main challenge of cloud computing is it’s perceptual and approaches. This research focuses on Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), which mixes Anxiety, Optimism and Risk, to study student’s attitude and behavior toward the implementation of cloud service. The planned model was studied using the Structure Equation Model (SEM) to examine data collected by a survey of both IT experts and users. The analysis showed that three variables of Optimism, Innovativeness and perceived risk can be positively combined within the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Innovativeness were suggested to have significant positive influence on the Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU) and Perceived Usefulness (PU). On the other hand, Optimism has positive impact on the PEOU, but had no influence on PU. Moreover, Behavioral Intention is predictable by Optimism, attitude and PU. Students behavior and intentions is explainable through PR, Optimism, and Innovativeness in the projected model in Kuwait.

Recently, there is a considerable gap between what is learned in the classroom and the real life context of vocational and technical students’ present and future workplace. This problem mostly occur in developing countries where lecturers in vocational and technical education have limited knowledge and experience of the real practice of industry and thus their experience is limited within the bounders on their institutions. This paper examine whether lecturers take into consideration those skills mostly needed by industry in their classes. In other words, do lecturers know the skills needed for today’s workplace? The study also examines the degree of industrialist’s involvement with vocational and technical lecturers in determining the types of knowledge, skills and attitudes that need to be stressed in the classroom. The study would consists of: a review of the related literature; a questionnaire that would be distributed to a sample of lecturers at the College of Technological Studies; Personal interviews with the head of the department; dean of industrial liaison offices; and the department trainee’s direct supervisors in local industry. This paper would conclude that lecturers must emphasis and develop the mostly needed knowledge, skills and attitudes by industries in their classes, otherwise industries would heavily depend on expatriates for years to come
