Stakeholders' Perceptions of Quality and Potential Improvements in the Learning Resources Centers at Omani Basic Education Schools
Al Musawi, Ali; Amer, Talal
International Education Studies, v10 n9 p124-140 2017
This study attempts to investigate the stakeholders' perceptions of quality and prospective improvements in the learning resources centres (LRC) at Omani basic education schools. It focuses on different aspects of the LRCs: organisation, human resources, technological, and educational aspects along with the difficulties faced by these LRCs and ways to improve their quality and evaluation. Five questionnaires for all types of stakeholders were designed, validated and implemented. Findings show that the services have yet to be improved and reach better levels of quality standards since they are not "always" implemented with quality. Evidence shows that the need for retaining LRC specialists was insurmountable. A training model for the Omani schools was recommended in light of the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) criteria and competencies.
