The basic goals of special Issue; Holistic approach in education research; Qualitative and quantitative paradigms is point out new perspectives of education research. Even today there is a kind of "conflict" between quantitative and qualitative approaches (paradigms) in research in the field of social sciences. Both approaches have their legitimacy, their philosophical approaches, conceptual assumptions that are bipolar. Although Sekulic-Majurec (2007) concludes that the end of the war paradigm (qualitative and quantitative), however conflicting exclusivity are still present. Exclusivity conditio sine qua non for creating redundant and unnecessary attitude that one approach superior to the other, although both approaches in relation synergy best describe the phenomena studied in the field of social sciences. But "quant-phrenia" and "quant-phobia" the ultimate limits of the opposition), which unnecessarily reduce the value of the results of research in the social sciences. Moreover, the social sciences because of the low nomotetic expressed incoherence, scientific nondetermination, low plausibility, predicting ... a great challenge and unnecessary "conflict" between qualitative or quantitative approach further reduces the dignity of the scientific habit of Social Sciences.

Competition is a natural human instinct; we strive to push our limits and challenge the unknown. Science and technology contests (STC) create the motivation for individuals to explore, learn, and enhance knowledge application. These are the fundamental elements of science education. With competition, students can expand their knowledge and broaden the imagination. In this regard, more and more STCs have been organized and conducted around the world.
Students’ learning behaviors and outcomes can be affected by different external factors, such as parenting style. Helicopter-parenting describes parents who monitor their children to an extreme degree and attempt to handle all their problems. This, in turn, can stifle a child’s independency and their problem solving capability. Through STC, science education provides many opportunities to effectively enable students to learn and develop skills to recognizing problems, but also the techniques to solve them.
In order to perform their fullest potential, students must first be placed in STC that would encourage active learning. This active learning model integrates a diverse range of activities (e.g., tasks, exercise, and projects) and allows students to engage in topics by increasing participation in creative problem solving and the science learning process.
In addition, STC reinforces communication and social skills among peers; it inspires students to identify co-variation issues and optionally solve the problem; it stimulates hands-on practice in material process and assembly which incorporates logical concepts and scientific knowledge. In essence, STC is the tool for our next generation to acquire infinite knowledge in the universe.

lifelong education can be defined as a process of both deliberate and unintentional opportunities influencing learning throughout one’s life span,In recent time scholars and planners put the education in a broader view by promoting the concept of lifelong education. Advocates of lifelong education view that education is a process that continues in one form or another throughout life.Lifelong education is a blend of pedagogy and andragogy. It can be provided through various modes like distance learning, e-learning, continuing education or correspondence courses. The concept of lifelong education has been under the process of continuous change because of increased duration of formal education and insufficiency of skills attained in schooling for future career and success.

The implementation of professional skills is built on the interconnections between knowledge and skills and its application in a specific employment context. This is realized through various language activities by social player. After clarifying from an epistemological point of view the concept of skill, because as pointed out by Guy Le BOTERF, (2007) "to have the skill" and "to be skilled", as the concept of "competence required" and that "real competence" does not operate on the same target, then the notion of “skill required” and “the real skill” for the individual in a work situation, does not operate according to the same target, it is necessary to ask the question: how does skill develop in a work context? The methodology will be based on quantitative data and qualitative data. From a corpus of data collected from social players in spaces and work situations, it is to observe, question and analyze this notion of competence through various working contexts, language practices resulting performances, acting and verbalization of it through the sayings and discourses of these social players at work. Ultimately, this exploratory phase aims to discover the form and language of participation share in the emerging practice or under control of the work environment in the subject and come to collect an additional knowledge in the use of language in relation with skills used in professional activities.

In a period of profound social, economic and cultural transformations, and the ever-increasing development of information and communication technologies (ICTs), education institutions face the need to redefine themselves to keep up with the technological challenges of the post-modern world.
The academic success of students, in the various components of their technical, professional, personal and social training, requires the reformulation of new learning spaces, in the web or face to face, open to the learners diversity and needs, in addition to the updating of knowledge (factual, procedural and contextual).
We need to re-conceptualize, re-design and rethink the use of these stimulating new learning spaces. They should encourage collaboration and embrace informal and no formal learning.
In this special issue we want to emphasize the importance of the integration of different technological resources, different pedagogical approaches in different learning spaces.
Let’s make every space an open learning space!

Over the years higher education is becoming globalized with students moving around the world to study different courses. The institutions of higher education are deliberately attracting overseas students as they are a source for money as well as cultural exchange. So now we have to keep in mind, our local students as well as theses foreign candidates while designing our curriculum. We need an evidence base to ensure that teaching, learning and assessment methods are suitable for this global audience. In particular, this issue recognizes the problems teachers as well as students have in coping with the developments in educational methods. We shall highlight the different aspects when the curriculum is changed to fulfill the global needs but preparedness on part of faculty and students is neglected. The problems in implementation of educational reforms range from time, parental expectations, unavailability of required instructional materials, faculty development and the initial mismatch between the students past educational training and principles underlying the curriculum innovation.
This issue includes original articles, editorial, letter to editor and short communications exploring new developments and perspectives in the field of medical education from premedical to postgraduate and continuing medical education. It provides a forum for discussion specific to the challenges faced by medical education practitioners all over the world. Only manuscripts that have not been published in, or submitted to, other journals will be considered. All research using human subjects must have been approved by an Ethical Review Board and any potential conflict of interest must be reported. The target audience includes medical and medical education researchers, practitioners and professionals, universities and their students.

The main aim of this issue is to represent and emphsize the importance of female contributions to Science in different subfields. Multidisciplinary approach, involving searching the places for demargalisation of female authorships and marking those places offers gender equal perspective in Sciences. Questioning weather malestream scientific approaches actualy satisfy legal and scientifical bases of knoweledge in different subdiscipline. How to establish gender equal education, and adopt the gender equal approach in creating the curriculum of scientific subjects? Do the positive example exsist? In tehnical, sociological and natural sciences the marginalisation of female contributions to science is still present, how to deconstruct this position to democratisation of education in all fields. Is it possible to find model to be used in all disciplines, and does this question unite all the disciplines in the same goal, which is transcending the boundaries of traditional education towards the more egalitaranian formula that can be used in all disciplines.

Discourses on educational leadership in the Middle East and North Africa are virtually missing from professional and peer-reviewed literature. This Special Issue seeks to address this gap. Globalization and the emergence of electronic journals have accelerated the rapid sharing and exchange of research, case studies, and policy positions on educational leadership. A casual search of the major journals on educational leadership reveals discourses dominated by core geographical areas of innovation, from Australia and New Zealand to Singapore and Shanghai, from the Netherlands and England to Canada and the United States. While the absence of the Middle East and North Africa in the literature would seem to put this diverse region on the discursive periphery of educational leadership, the truth is far from it. On the contrary, policymakers and senior management from ministries of education from the region have for decades traveled internationally to engage policymakers and experts from the “core” to learn about, borrow, and adapt innovative models and approaches in educational leadership. This special Issue aims, therefore, to explore current issues and trends in educational leadership in the Middle East and North Africa. What modalities of leadership are currently having the biggest impact on school effectiveness and student learning outcomes? What strategies and approaches are principals using to strike a balance in their dual roles as administrator and instructional leader? How successfully are principals transitioning from a hierarchal model of centralized authority and power to a non-hierarchal model of shared leadership and empowerment? What methods and techniques are having the most success in supporting, assessing, evaluating, and developing teacher quality? What alternative models of educational leadership are schools practicing with the aim of improving teaching and learning for a global knowledge economy driven by communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity?

The objective of this paper is to construe a writing which pinpoints one of the most prevailing but overlooked psychological condition i.e. Writer’s block. The condition is associated with a shrinkage or failure of the ability to assemble, to instigate or to conclude one’s own writing. Along with the elucidation of main argument a correlation in between the psychological and the physiological inducement of the condition is discussed to reveal the effect one is bound to induce on the other.
Among the tabulation of psychological incitement of the condition the most dominant appears to be the uncertainty, self perfectionism, hypersensitivity or insensitivity to one’s surroundings and innumerable influence of ideas or dearth of any ideological influence are the most frequently observed which on analysis are subjected to be the aftermath of extreme behavior entirely and follows the most inhibitory behavior to writing that is found to be stress. The interconnection among the psychological and physiological aspects is expected to be the term “stress” which is the most dominant facilitator of the stress hormone “Cortisol.” The high levels of Cortisol consequently produce the two mentally disastrous effects i.e. depression and sometimes psychotic behavior while on physiological side extreme fatigue is produced. These effects commingle to block the mental ability of a person to bring about initiative ideas. Along with the endocrine system aspect the nervous system is also affected by the anxiety attacks as the increased panic levels in the brain is found to switch the control to limbic system and eventually hinders the cerebral cortex activity which is the focal point of one’s creative activity. (Flaherty, 2004). This interrelationship between the psychological and physiological factors ultimately results in block condition of writing.
By the end of the paper specific strategies in order to exercise the mind as well as to maintain the physiological level of hormones are also discussed so that one may find the condition of this mental blockage competently treatable.

Teacher education is an integral part of education. It is the spotlight of the 21st century. The teacher occupies a pivotal position in the system of education. Teacher plays an important role as friend, philosopher, guide and helper of the student. The teacher is the backbone of the educational system, maker of the mankind and architect of the society. Thus the role of the teachers is very important in making the nation. The success of education depends on quality of teacher which creates excellence in all walks of life. The qualitative aspects of education depend entirely on the character and personality of the teachers. The American Commission on Teacher Education rightly observes, “The quality of its citizens depends not exclusively, but in critical measure upon the quality of their education. The quality of their education depends more than upon any single factor upon the quality of their teacher”. The National Policy on Education in India (1986) has rightly said, “The status of the teacher reflects the socio-cultural ethos of a society; it is said that no people can rise above the level of its teachers”. Teacher education is that knowledge, skill and ability which as relevant to the life of a teacher. If we throw the light on the Teacher Education Programme in all over the world we would see that a remarkable growth occurred in the field of Teacher Education. At the same time Teacher Education is losing its identity in so many countries. Teacher Education in various countries has been struggling to strengthen its identity. Struggle does not mean degeneration of values and degeneration of institutions. It is true that after persistent struggle there is evident improvement, but, still there is no end to perfection. There are many issues and challenges pertaining to Teacher Education Programme like Policy dilemma, Professional development, Quality Research, Academic Staff Development, E-learning and Teacher Education, ICT and Teacher education, Quality Management in Teacher education, Teacher education in 21st Century, Teacher education Global perspective etc. Teacher Education should be so powerful and graceful that nobody should dare to dictate. It is high time to revive and strengthen the Teacher Education Programme in all over the world.
This special Issue aims, therefore,
• To explore the current Issues and Challenges in the field of Teacher Education in various countries’ in the world. • To share innovative ideas for the qualitative development of teacher education.• To analyze the changing context of teacher education in the global scenario. • To know the development of teacher education during various periods and examine its relevance today.• To find out the curricula and courses for teacher education in different countries of the world.• To ascertain the special features of the Teacher Education system in various countries.• To know the agencies involved in the continuing professional teacher development (CPTD).• To know the structure of Teacher Education Programme at various levels of education in different countries.• To know the issues and problems of teacher education.• To analyze the incentives given to teachers to work towards their professional development.• To know the quality indicators for teacher education.• To know the significance of E-learning in Teacher Education.• To know the significance of ICT in Teacher Education

Research on second language acquisition (SLA) has expanded enormously over the last decades of the 20th and the first decade of the 21st century. The number of studies in the field of SLA has increased not only in its quantity but also in the range of topics and issues addressed. However, there are still significant questions regarding the understanding of the process of SLA which have remained unanswered. Among the issues that represent a challenge for SLA practitioners are: the trajectory and rate of L2 acquisition and/or learning, the cognitive processes that support L2 acquisition, the strategies employed by L2 learners, the parallels between L1 and L2 acquisition, the way that language and cognition interact in language processing and the implications of those issues for the second language classroom. The purpose of this special issue, therefore, is to bring together theoretically grounded research reports and empirical emergent or breaking work that represent a contribution to the central issues of second language teaching and learning as identified above.

The issue of quality of training in higher education establishments has been and remains the cornerstone for the effective functioning of industries, businesses and banks, the development of science, culture, education and society in general. Graduate student should be competitive in the job market. This means that they should not only get a good education, but also be willing and able to further self-improvement. To solve this problem it is important to discuss the comprehensive and diverse scientific basis of ensuring the quality of higher education, to review the results of scientific studies and the experience of higher education in various countries. The unanswered questions are: the definition of the concept of "quality of higher education", criteria and indicators of quality education, diagnostic tools, methods of monitoring the quality of education, ways and means of improving the educational process in Universities , the correlation of the quality education with higher education management and so on. In a special issue of the journal, we plan to deal with both - theoretical studies and practical achievements of scientific and educational community.

In the full XXIst century, the initial formation of the teachers must be tackled from different points of view and ambiences of study and investigation given the heteregeneus competences that these teachers will have to transmit to his futures learners. In this sense, our intention is to offer a set of scientific studies that offer different routes to rethink the roll of the teacher at present whose formation must be tackled, undoubtedly, from the interdisciplinarity and the transdisciplinarity of contents and ways of learning that they help these teachers to answer with guarantees of success to the challenges that nowadays our society demands. This way, an initial formation is necessary from methodologies of education and learning as Learning Service, the work collaborative between equal, the hybrid spaces in which there have capacity both the University and the proper School and the Society, learning across the art.. .. Finally, we want to offer a new point of view for the initial formation of teachers who demand to the scientific community new methodologies of learning that must converge on the same direction: how must the teacher of the XXIst century be and how must be to confront his formation to give in a nearby future valid responses to the requirements of our current society.
