      Professional excellence in teacher education significantly enhances the quality of teacher education systems and produces competent teachers who contribute to the improvement of the national education system. Hence, this study aims to explore the components of the professional excellence curriculum in teacher educators in Finland and the United States, as two developed countries, based on a theoretical research plan using a documentary-analytical strategy. The data collection method involved studying written sources including books, articles, and documents on the curriculum for professional excellence in teacher education in Finland and the United States from 2000 to 2023. Based on the analysis of data, three principal categories were extracted: vision, content, and implementation methods of the curriculum. Each of these three principal categories of the professional excellence curriculum includes several components. Future study, as a dominant component in the vision of the countries' curricula, has been an influential factor in shaping the content and implementation methods of curricula. The content of the curriculum has been flexible and inclusive. The link between theory and practice is emphasized. In terms of implementation, educational strategies and justice-based and anti-colonial strategies have acted as two complementary strategies. In the whole curriculum, respect for professional independence and the development of a sense of agency have been emphasized as effective components in the professional excellence of educators.

      Efficient human resource is a major indicator of the superiority of an organization over other organization. One of the indicators of retention, empowerment and development of employees in organizations is to pay attention to the replacement of people for the future positions of the organization. This is of special significance in educational organizations considering their goals, hence the aim of the current research was to identify the indicators and components of the replacement of managers in schools and educational centers. The approach of the current research was qualitative and the method was synthetic. The research corpus included all the articles published in the last decade (2006-2023), of which 24 articles were selected as samples based on thematic content monitoring. The research data were collected by qualitative analysis of the studied documents. By analyzing the data, key factors in 4 dimensions, 11 factors and 54 categories including the dimension of succession management (components such as competence-oriented, knowledge management, transformational and creative leadership, strategic planning); cultural organizational dimension (components such as strengthening the culture of cooperation and teamwork, delegating authority, maintaining talented human resources), approaches and strategies of parenting dimension (components such as approaches based on self-development and approaches based on cooperative learning), and monitoring and evaluation dimension (components such as program monitoring and evaluation of individual competencies) were classified. The results showed that in order to design succession planning patterns, in addition to the personal components of the succession, organizational culture, attention to effective approaches in education, proper management in succession planning, and appropriate evaluation should be considered.

      The purpose of this research was to examine the role of blended learning on human resource development in Payam Noor University (PNU). This study used a descriptive survey design. The population consisted of 3700 PNU faculty members in 2017-2018. Using stratified sampling and based on Krejcie and Morgan’s table, 302 faculty members were selected as the sample. The data were collected using two questionnaires: the Blended Learning Questionnaire with five subscales (i.e., pedagogy, methodology, technology, learning styles, and organizational strategy), 40 items, and a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.903; the Human Resource Development Questionnaire with five subscales (i.e., knowledge, attitude, skill, critical thinking, and job satisfaction), 39 items, and a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.893. The hierarchical regression analysis and structural equation modeling were used by SPSS 21 to analyze the data. The results showed that blended learning has a significant effect on all the dimensions of human resource development at the 0.05 significance level: knowledge (0.573), attitude (0.510), job satisfaction (0.362), critical thinking (0.351), and skill (0.241). Several fitness indicators suggested that the model fit the data well (𝜒2/𝑑𝑓 = 1.05; GFI = 0.97; AGFI = 0.93; RMSEA = 0.0029; critical value = 0.38321). Thus, there was a causal relationship between blended learning and human resource development. Manuscript profile
