AbstractIntroduction. Today, the crisis of modern higher school and processes of its modernisation are followed by the crisis of institutional, inter-community and interpersonal trust, which has remained a fundamental basis of a high school system of vocational education for a very long time. The need to preserve trust as a fundamental basis and source of development of Russian higher education requires the study of its structural characteristics and understanding of the resource potential of trust by representatives of educational communities.The aim of the research was the sociological substantiation of actualisation in higher education of the old resource properties of trust and the emergence of new ones associated with the prospects of transition to a non-linear model of higher education.Methodology and research methods. The publication presents the results of theoretical and empirical sociological research, implemented with the use of theoretical positions and methodological principles of community and resource approaches, the theory of non-linear development of society. The empirical study was conducted using a mix strategy based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, expert interviews, semi-formalised interview, focus-groups, content analysis and the method of secondary analysis of sociological data.Results and scientific novelty. The authors’ interpretation of the phenomenon of “old” and “new” trust in Russian higher education is presented. The novelty of the authors’ approach was to consider the problem of higher education not only within the framework of “educational” problems, but also in the broad context of social and socio-cultural changes, meaning the transition to a “liquid” postmodern society. The mobilisation possibilities for the constructive resolution of contradictions existing at the levels of institutional and inter-community relations and interactions in universities are shown. Practical significance. The research results have a positive significance not only for enrichment of the theory of higher education and social knowledge of non-material resources of its development. They are important to design various academic practical experience oriented on the use of resource properties of trust with a view to developing the social and human capital of high school communities as well as to elaborate new social technologies for managing the processes of trust formation in the university.

Trust Management: Key Factor of the Sustainable Organizations Embedded in NetworkJab?o?ski, Adam; Ko?uch, Barbara (MDPI - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)Nowadays, trust is an important determinant in the development of modern organizations. Not only is it becoming an increasingly important element of relationships between entities, but, above all, it positively influences the building of an organization's intellectual capital. This capital can be defined in different ways, but its definition always references elements that determine the potential of sustainable organizations, often in human, social, relational, organizational, and innovation dimensions. Trust is increasingly becoming the key determinant of this capital (Ko?uch, Lenart-Gansiniec, 2017). Trust also has a number of different definitions. However, the basis of many of these definitions is the building of relationships focused on developing some kind of individual or inter-organizational link. Organizational trust is a complicated concept, and it is the basis of all organized activities performed by people in the organization, largely because trust is needed to develop relationships with integrity and commitment. Thus, it is interesting to study the relationship between trust and the building of the intellectual capital of sustainable organizations. Indeed, intellectual capital plays a special role here. It is a guide and a platform for achieving not only a competitive advantage for the sustainable organization, but also a source of value creation in the short and long term. Thus, this strategic hybrid, composed of a business model, strategy, and business processes, is favorable to the development of intellectual capital (Jab?o?ski 2017). Trust is an element that ties this capital to relationships in business. Moreover, it has an integrated character (R.C. Mayer, J. H. Davis, F. D. Schoorman 1995). Assuming that, nowadays, the network paradigm is becoming increasingly important, it is worth asking how the mechanism of building trust-based intellectual capital in a sustainable organization functions as its key asset in the network environment.
Trust and school life: the role of trust for learning, teaching, leading, and bridgingVan Maele, Dimitri; Forsyth, Patrick B.; Van Houtte, Mieke (Springer Science+Business Media, 2014)This book represents emerging research from a new generation as well as seasoned trust scholars. It offers a unique and current update of trust research in education, and presents a variety of directions for future research. The book samples recent and emerging trust research in education including an array of conceptual approaches, measurement innovations, and explored determinants and outcomes of trust. The collection of pathways explores the phenomenon of trust and establishes the significance of trust relationships in school life. It emboldens the claim that trust merits continued attention of both scholars and practitioners because of the role it plays in the production of equity and excellence. Divided into four parts, the book explores trust under the rubrics of learning, teaching, leading and bridging. The book proposes a variety of directions for future research. These include the simultaneous investigation of trust from the prospectives of various trusters, and at both the individual and group levels, longitudinal research designs, and an elaboration of methods.
The role of the lecturer in cultivating a relationship of trust with the student teacher with special reference to teaching practice in the former Transkei regionWoodbridge, Noel Beaumont; Msengana, Enid Ntombizolundi (2015-01-23)This study deals with the problem relating to the prevalence of a lack of
trust amongst members of today's society generally, and in particular
between college lecturers and student teachers.
The aim of the dissertation is to investigate the role of the lecturer in
cultivating a relationship of trust with the student teacher, especially
during teaching practice. The study reveals that the trust relationship
manifests itself in various moments. Some characteristics of an effective
supervising lecturer are also reflected upon.
The major research consists of an empirical investigation into which
characteristics of an effective supervising lecturer contribute most towards
cultivating a relationship of trust with student teachers during teaching
practice. A survey of colleges of education and schools in the former
Transkei region participating in the empirical investigation is also
The findings of the research indicate that the following categories need
