Pontillas [email protected] <p>COVID-19 has brought so many changes in the world. It is a test of faith and hope to everyone. Many scholars have used different lenses in fields of research in this topic. In language studies, many have zoomed in on this topic in corpus-based linguistics. In discourse analysis, few studies have dealt with this, especially narrative analysis. Using the frameworks of Bamberg (1997) and Barkhuizen (2009), three levels of positioning analysis were unpacked by a COVID-19 survivor’s life story. The first level of positioning answers how the characters positioned themselves concerning the events that happened. On the other hand, the second level of positioning seeks to answer how the characters positioned themselves to the audience. Lastly, the third level of positioning aims to position narrators to themselves. The participant was a student of the researcher who agreed to share his story in this paper. The main character almost lost his life due to COVID-19 and was hospitalized for nearly two weeks. The researcher discovered linguistic elements present during the interview, such as linguistic politeness, transitional devices, metaphors, and discourse particles, that helped the researcher analyze and unpack the three levels of positioning analysis. The actual occurrences that happened to the participant served as a turning point in his experience–from non-believer to believer of COVID-19. The paper further explored how COVID-19 became a test of faith, love, and hope to the participant.</p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Education, Management and Development Studies The Use of E-Recruitment Process with the Comparison of Traditional Recruitment Process in Bangladesh: A Case Study on BRAC Bank Ltd. 2023-09-12T19:20:14+08:00 Md. Arifuzzaman [email protected] Md. Shoriful Islam [email protected] Md. Yeamin Masum [email protected] Jannatul Shams Anonna [email protected] <p>This paper compares e-recruitment and traditional recruitment processes and its merits and demerits. The figure of this process is arranged so that in the static equilibrium, the e-recruitment process takes the horizontal position, while the traditional recruitment process takes the vertical position. Here are presented the characteristics of both e-recruitment and traditional recruitment processes used in Bangladesh for attracting and selecting qualified candidates through the analysis of a case of BRAC Bank Ltd. Obtained results proved to be by the motion of the actual physical system. E-Recruitment has provided some remarkable benefits in terms of cost and efficiency. Due to the rapid advancement of technology and evolving digital tools, the e-recruitment process is the future of recruiting in the corporate world, while traditional recruitment processes are diminishing daily.</p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Education, Management and Development Studies Exploring the multifaceted impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Teachers’ teaching practices 2023-10-05T20:02:13+08:00 Irene E. Eguico [email protected] Maria Nancy Quinco-Cadosales [email protected] Daryl F. Quinco [email protected] Sharika F. Magcanta [email protected] Rosalia E. Celestiano [email protected] Rachell-Ann B. Buljatin [email protected] <p>The devotion and commitment of the teachers allowed for the continuation of instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. Switching from traditional classroom instruction to an online learning environment was challenging. Learning institutions implemented several teachers’ upskilling and skill-building programs to prepare for emergencies. However, teachers were not exempted from the impact of the COVID–19 pandemic. Two hundred eighty-nine (289) teachers from 19 non-sectarian private schools around the Philippines were profiled in the study using quantitative and qualitative research techniques. Roman Catholics and women composed most of the teachers. They employ a range of online technologies and instructional methods. When transitioning to the virtual classroom, teachers faced several difficulties, with intermittent internet connection as the main problem. The teachers agreed that online teaching was advantageous at the onset of the pandemic using varied online tools. They asserted that training initiatives in student motivation and engagement, skill development, and mental health programs are significant to maintaining high-quality teaching and learning.</p> 2023-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Education, Management and Development Studies
