    This paper aims to analyse obstacles to international student mobility in Poland at the level of university education. We provide selected results of our empirical study among non-mobile Polish students. According to our study subjects, the following reasons for the decision not to study abroad were the most important: insufficient financial support, fear of separation from one?s partner or family, lack of motivation, insufficient information about mobility opportunities, fear of losing one?s job, and an obligation to take care of one?s child or parent. We review the literature of the subject concerning outward student mobility barriers.  Full article

    The study presented here aimed to grasp, interpret and understand the processes of construction of knowledge developed by the Specialization Course in Education Program (PPGE) at UFAM (Universidade Federal do Amazonas ? Amazonas Federal University). The dip in their doings, in the society and culture in which it is located, has enabled us to grasp the immense plot and the network of meanings woven by the energy that emerges from the life of Amazonian subjects and their world which transcend, by far, the pure beams of logical relationships where humans are treated as clones, doomed to an eternal repetition. The analysis have articulated the researchers? perceptions, the theoretical conceptions and the data collected and revealed the richness and fertility of those cultures and the meaning of that Program, which has its support in local knowledge with insertion in the universal context.  Full article

    Visualizations of algorithms contribute to improving computer science education. The process of teaching and learning of algorithms is often complex and hard to understand problem. Visualization is a useful technique for learning in any computer science course. In this paper an e-learning tool for shortest paths algorithms visualization is described. The developed e-learning tool allows creating, editing and saving graph structure and visualizes the algorithm steps execution. It is intended to be used as a supplement to face-to-face instruction or as a stand-alone application. The conceptual applicability of the described e-learning tool is illustrated by implementation of Dijkstra algorithm. The preliminary test results provide evidence of the usability of the e-learning tool and its potential to support students? development of efficient mental models regarding shortest paths algorithms. This e- learning tool is intended to integrate different algorithms for shortest path determination.  Full article

    Although, internationalization of Polish higher education is a new phenomenon, Poland is gradually becoming a popular study destination among international students. However, the country still lacks extensive research works on their circumstances. This paper aims to present non-EU students? major ongoing challenges in the City of Poznan. The findings are taken from author?s own experience and others? research findings at Migrant Info Point ? a Poznan based immigrant advisory center. It is found that non-EU students often face difficulties while legalizing their stay and looking for accommodation. Beside these, their employment prospectus is also challenged because of linguistic barriers. Furthermore, immigration rules do not favor the graduates. To some extent, European students also face many of these challenges. Respective authorities need to acknowledge and resolve these obstacles immediately in order to retain and gain popularity.  Full article

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of further morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetes patients. This study aimed to find the serum lipid profile, serum uric acid levels, other CVD risk factors, and how these factors are affected by diabetes duration in adults with type 2 diabetes. The cross- sectional study, involving 100 subjects, was carried out at the Diabetes Centre, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kumasi, Ghana. Adult type 2 diabetes patients, 20 years or older, were recruited for the study. The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Adult Panel III and American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines were used to find the metabolic status of the patients. Of the 100 patients, 74% and 62% had high systolic blood pressure and abdominal obesity, respectively. Also, high LDL-cholesterol and hypercholesterolaemia were found in 47% and 46% of the patients, respectively. Forty-six percent (46%) of the patients were hyperuricaemic. Cardiovascular disease risk increased with age from 20 to 79 years. The female diabetics had more adverse CVD risk profile than the male diabetics (high LDL, 55% vs. 23.1%; high total cholesterol, 54.1% vs. 23.1%; high triglycerides, 32.4% vs. 30.8%; low HDL, 25.7% vs. 3.8%). Fifty percent (50%) of females compared to 34.6% of males were hyperuricaemic. However, hypertension was more prevalent among males (systolic blood pressure, 76.9%; diastolic blood pressure, 38.5%) than among females (systolic blood pressure, 73%; diastolic blood pressure, 37.8%). In conclusion, the prevalence of hyperuricaemia and other cardiometabolic risks was high among type 2 diabetes patients.  Full article
