  • Purpose: The fourth industrial revolution and prolonged COVID-19, which will bring about technological advances, are calling for changes in our universities. Therefore, it is necessary to look back on the essential meaning of education and the direction of education to examine the current status of university education. So, this study would like to look at how the social environment of the classroom affects the satisfaction of life through the student’s grit. Method: This study conducted on online survey of university students majoring in aviation services in consideration of the COVID-19 situation. 230 people responded, and 216 were used for the final analysis. The collected data was analyzed using the SPSS 21.0 Statistics Program. Multiple regression analysis was conducted to verify the hypothesis, and three-step mediated regression was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the grit between the social environment of the classroom and life satisfaction of students. Results: First, the social environment of the classroom(emotional support between students, facilitating mutual respect and teacher’s emotional support) had a significant effect on student’s grit(passion). On the other hand, the social environment of the classroom had no significant impact on the student’s grit(perseverance). Second, the social environment of the classroom had a significant effect on students’ life satisfaction. Third, the passion among grit had a significant effect on the student's life satisfaction, but the perseverance among grit did not significantly affect students’ life satisfaction. Fourth, only passion among grit showed a mediating effect between the social environment of the classroom and life satisfaction. Conclusion: The higher the ‘emotional support between students’, ‘facilitating mutual respect’, and ‘emotional support of teachers’ among the social environment of the classroom, the higher the students’ grit(passion). The impact of emotional support on students’ passion for achieving long-term goals in the social environment of the classroom is a wake-up call for the role of teachers in the university setting. In addition, fulfilling the original role of university education is a way to increase the life satisfaction of university students majoring in aviation services. Due to the current COVID-19, it is difficult to conduct face-to-face classes in the department of aviation services, which includes a lot of practical subjects in the curriculum. However, it is necessary for universities to provide various non-face-to-face programs related to their majors so that students can continue their perseverance and passion through steady success experiences. If the professor provides steady emotional support in the process, students will be able to maintain high life satisfaction.

  • Purpose: In this study, a number of industrial accidents occur, and occupational accidents caused by post-traumatic stress disorder. As a result of this occupational accident, many workers are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Numerous industrial accidents occur every year, and the approval of occupational accidents caused by post-traumatic stress disorder is increasing. In particular, in the case of industrial accident trauma, workers are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder that is more severe than other trauma patients in that workers are continuously re-exposed to the accident scene and re-experienced the accident. Method: Therefore, exposure treatment techniques for patients suffering industrial acci-dent trauma using VR(virtual reality) and measurement systems introduction was necessary. Using the disaster and disaster contents developed through this research and development, measure user reaction and secure data on the degree and timing of user reaction according to each accident event, so that it is possible to obtain reference data for appropriate exposure setting according to the level of trauma became. As a methodology, a population composition for setting the exposure level and a hypothesis design for verification and a scenario design for hypothesis testing were established. In addition, the user reaction data for each accident event in the virtual experience was regarded as heart rate data, and a sensor and related system design that can measure data through the experiment were made, and the experiment was analyzed according to the scenario. Results: So, by measuring the heart rate of the experimenter using VR(virtual reality) to experience a traumatic disaster, Measuring heart rate variability(HRV) by disaster and environmental factors and observing stress changes. It is expected that it will be possible to obtain data on the extent to which the user reacts in a specific disaster by securing a measurement value of how and at what point in time the user reacts. Conclusion: This made it possible to analyze the post-traumatic disability later. In particular, through the results of this experiment, it was possible to present the need for an indicator that can objectively evaluate the effectiveness of VR content for education and objective data of the indicator. In addition, a lot of data such as stability, movement, reaction, etc. were secured as basic indicators for the development of the “Crane VR Education Content” evaluation system.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to verify the effectiveness of mindfulness in the stress management of military leaders. In the long-term situation in the COVID-19, the military leaders are increasingly anxious and also they are often exposed to extreme stress environments. Considering this situation, the contents of mindfulness were combined in leadership coaching program, and the military leaders were able to confirm the psychological well-being and stress relief after the mindfulness program before the lecture. Method: For this purpose, the program was designed based on the results of previous studies and needs surveys, and the problems revealed through expert verification and preliminary program implementation were revised and supplemented. The effects of coaching lectures on subjective well-being and psychological well-being were verified by arranging 8 military leaders participants in the experimental group, the comparative group(the psychological well-being program) and the control group, respectively, with the students participating in the main executive course. Results: As a result, the experimental group showed significant differences in both subjective well-being and psychological well-being of the comparative group and the control group. To measure the cognitive factors of subjective well-being, the Satisfaction With Life Scale(SWLS) developed by Diener et al.(1985) and adapted by Ryu Yeon-ji(1996) was used. This scale consists of five questions in total, and consists of seven-point scales. The emotional factors were used the Index of General Effect, which was translated by Lee Soo Il(1997). This scale is a tool to measure positive-negative emotional aspects, with a total of 9 questions, each of which is paired with two adjectives and a seven-point scale. In this study, Cronbach's value was .83 and Cronbach's value of emotional well-being was .86. Conclusion: In the analysis of participants' experience reports and the observations of the hosts, it was confirmed that the experimental group who participated in the psychological well-being promotion program for the stress management of the military leaders had a positive change in the psychological well-being improvement. However, this study has a limitation in generalizing the results of the study to all military leaders because it causes sampling errors by recruiting applicants, which is a non-probable sampling method, in the recruitment of research subjects. In addition, since only 8 people were assigned to each group, it is necessary to conduct a study that has sufficient number of people considering external validity.
