Abstract: Various factors are influencing doctoral students’ well-being and their doctoral education experience. This study offers one of the first to examine Chinese doctoral students’ use of Weibo for in-group communication, through a content analysis of 930 anonymous posts in a Weibo super-hashtag page. The results elucidate the emotional states in the posts, nine topics of contents of the posts and the prevalence of supportive communication among doctoral students online.

Abstract: Research has shown that medical students like to watch medical dramas, but there is some concern about how this might eventually affect their professional behavior. The aim of the current study is to provide insight into the moral evaluations of medical dramas by medical students and physicians in order to formulate if and how medical dramas might be used as a tool in ethics education, thereby bringing clarity to the discussion over the proposed merit it could have in such a curriculum. A qualitative study was conducted that included in-depth interviews (N = 40) among a divers sample of medical students and physicians. The results show that the moral evaluations of a medical drama changed over time due to more (theoretical and practical) knowledge and experience and therefore a more nuanced view of the profession and professional ethics.

Abstract: Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of a blended doctoral cohort higher educational administration preparation program at Midwest University as perceived by international doctoral cohort students. Indeed, higher education reform movements, market forces demands and the growing population of adult students in education call for new direction in training and education. Currently adult learners constitute over 50% of all students in education administration programs and group learning as found in cohorts is their preferred way of learning. These programs have been around for over two decades and only scanty systematic studies have been conducted to evaluate them. Using cooperative learning theory as conceptual framework, this study was able to identify cohesiveness, group support, trusting relationships and networking as some of the important elements for cohort program success. Flexibility in courses per semester and close look on program entry requirements were some of the suggested elements that are needed for improvements

Research Design: Participants, data collections and methods
This study employed semi structured interviews. This mode of interviewing is less structured in the sense that the order and form of questions vary during the session. Open ended questions are preferred in semi structured interviews. The use of less structured questions assumes that individual respondents define the world in unique ways. Usually the researcher looks for specific information from all interviewees and so there is a need of some structure but does not require exact wording and order (Merriam, 2009). Interviews were conducted on the phone and one was face to face. Data was recorded on a digital recording machine and transcribed within a week of collection. Coding was then applied to the transcribed text and categories were established. From these categories emerged themes from all four participants’ interviews. Following are the themes that were created: Requirements for success based on international students background, cohort benefits/advantages, cohort negative elements or weaknesses, and suggestions for improvements or new direction. All the above themes lead to the impact of the program.

A word about limitation of the Study: This study limited only to one Midwestern University. Also, there was limited associated type of method. qualitative vs quantitative. In addition, sample was small compared to other large cohorts. Thus, there is an issue of generalization to other settings

Some Findings and Results
The cohorts’ common curriculum with the same group for an extended period of time was considered one of the essential elements for international doctoral cohort benefits. Group support, encouragement, trust to share and receive constructive criticisms and networking were some of the positive elements mentioned by every study participant in the interviews. The international participants mentioned support that range from social events to academic assignments. All of them used the phrase, “we are like a small family”. They noted different levels of participation from cohort group members. Some participate more actively and contributed more than others. Brooks (1998) explained that the success of group learning relies upon the degree to which members of a particular education cohort experience interdependence and cohesiveness. He reported that cohorts can be a positive setting for students because they provide them with a greater feeling of inclusiveness, promote collaboration and enhance performance. On the other hand Lawrence (1997) demonstrated how educational cohorts help to build learning communities and not only social support groups. This study was validated by Alden in his 2001 study about factors that lead to successful learning.


On the hand, study participants identified time management as a great challenge in this doctoral cohort programs. One of the program requirements for this cohort is three years’ experience in higher education administration. Two of the international participants had not worked in higher education administration before they were recruited to the program. James was from computer science and expressed a big disconnection from his field of study and his current cohort program. Although he said now he has bridged the gap to a high degree he still thinks being from higher education background is very helpful in being able to follow the flow of the program courses such leadership and governance theories of higher education Another international student (Ketty) expressed her disconnection between summer internship program and her future plan to work in education administration in her country Other international students expressed lack of freedom from choosing when to do which course or how many courses to take per semester as a problem. In addition, they noted program has only one course about international education.
