Journal of Education and Social Science


Social science in education and curricular development receive wide attention by many researchers and educational institutions. Each social science has its own knowledge, information, skills, perspectives and methods of investigation. Selecting, organizing and presenting social science in textbooks is a major challenge for curriculum developers, for example. The objective of this journal is to bring together research contributions on the guidelines, design, specification, and implementation of rules, architectures, protocol for current and future technological innovation for education and social science.

    Lecture assessments in higher education settings are widely practiced to measure teaching quality and to improve professors’ instructional skills. Though the majority of universities in South Korea currently performs the assessments, they do not tend to thoroughly assess lecture types other than theory-based ones. The aim of the study is to provide a series of questioning items for each of various lecture types conducted in college settings, including flipped learning, discussion-based lectures, and problem-based learning, etc. Extracting data from 11 legitimate journal publishers and four university-based websites on teaching methods and higher education, the study investigated 34 articles published since 2013 in relation to lecture assessments. Results suggested different lecture assessment items that well match distinct features each lecture type entails; college instructors are encouraged to apply the findings to their specific lecture types accordingly. Further implications are made based on the lecture assessment items that the study suggests.
