Handbook of Critical Race Theory in Education (Hardcover, 2nd New edition): Marvin Lynn, Adrienne D Dixson Handbook of Critical Race Theory in Education (Hardcover, 2nd New edition)
Marvin Lynn, Adrienne D Dixson
R6,678 Discovery Miles 66 780 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This handbook illustrates how education scholars employ Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a framework to bring attention to issues of race and racism in education. It is the first authoritative reference work to provide a truly comprehensive description and analysis of the topic, from the defining conceptual principles of CRT in Law that gave shape to its radical underpinnings to the political and social implications of the field today. It is divided into six sections, covering innovations in educational research, policy and practice in both schools and in higher education, and the increasing interdisciplinary nature of critical race research. New chapters broaden the scope of theoretical lenses to include LatCrit, AsianCrit and Critical Race Feminism, as well as coverage of Discrit Studies, Research Methods, and other recent updates to the field. This handbook remains the definitive statement on the state of critical race theory in education and on its possibilities for the future.

Rot, Riot and Rebellion - Mr. Jefferson's Struggle to Save the University That Changed America (Paperback): Rex Bowman,... Rot, Riot and Rebellion - Mr. Jefferson's Struggle to Save the University That Changed America (Paperback)
Rex Bowman, Carlos Santos
R329 R276 Discovery Miles 2 760 Save R53 (16%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Thomas Jefferson had a radical dream for higher education. Designed to become the first modern public university, the University of Virginia was envisioned as a liberal campus with no religious affiliation, with elective courses and student self-government. Nearly two centuries after the university's creation, its success now seems preordained-its founder, after all, was a great American genius. Yet what many don't know is that Jefferson's university almost failed. In Rot, Riot, and Rebellion, award-winning journalists Rex Bowman and Carlos Santos offer a dramatic re-creation of the university's early struggles. Political enemies, powerful religious leaders, and fundamentalist Christians fought Jefferson and worked to thwart his dream. Rich students, many from southern plantations, held a sense of honor and entitlement that compelled them to resist even minor rules and regulations. They fought professors, townsfolk, and each other with guns, knives, and fists. In response, professors armed themselves-often with good reason: one was horsewhipped, others were attacked in their classrooms, and one was twice the target of a bomb. The university was often broke, and Jefferson's enemies, crouched and ready to pounce, looked constantly for reasons to close its doors. Yet from its tumultuous, early days, Jefferson's university-a cauldron of unrest and educational daring-blossomed into the first real American university. Here, Bowman and Santos bring us into the life of the University of Virginia at its founding to reveal how this once shaky institution grew into a novel, American-style university on which myriad other U.S. universities were modeled.

English Tertiary Education in Vietnam (Hardcover): James Albright English Tertiary Education in Vietnam (Hardcover)
James Albright
R3,008 Discovery Miles 30 080 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

As part of a long series of Vietnam's policy objectives, English education has been identified as key to improving the quality of its rapidly expanding tertiary institutions and is crucial to the larger aim of modernising and internationalising its economy. Bringing together a wide range of Vietnamese and foreign English education scholars, and tertiary educational practitioners, this book documents the significant progress and challenges in the realisation of Vietnam's English language policies as they are enacted in the higher education sector. Changes to Vietnam's higher education system remain unstable, unsystematic, and insubstantial. This book provides insights into how recent Vietnamese government policy is providing for a substantial and comprehensive renewal of Vietnam's tertiary education as part of their 2020 plan. Academics and students of English education, language policy, and nation building within the context of increased globalisation and marketisation in developing nations and Vietnam, in particular, should find this book valuable.

Leadership Matters - Confronting the Hard Choices Facing Higher Education (Hardcover): W. Joseph King, Brian C. Mitchell Leadership Matters - Confronting the Hard Choices Facing Higher Education (Hardcover)
W. Joseph King, Brian C. Mitchell
R691 R627 Discovery Miles 6 270 Save R64 (9%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Leadership matters more than ever in this turbulent moment in American higher education. During these unprecedented times, glaring internal inefficiencies, communication breakdowns, and an overriding sense of cultural inertia on many campuses are too often set against a backdrop of changing consumer preferences, high sticker prices, declining demand, massive tuition discounting, aging infrastructure, technological and pedagogical alternatives, and political pressure. Strategic leadership in such a complex environment needs to be exercised in nuanced ways that differ from those embraced by corporate cultures. In Leadership Matters, W. Joseph King and Brian C. Mitchell argue that the success of higher education institutions depends on strategic leaders who can utilize the strengths of their institutions and leaders to balance internal pressures, shifting demographics, global education needs, and workforce preparation demands beyond the college gates. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors guide senior administration, trustees, and presidents on how to lead during immense financial, demographic, and social challenges. King and Mitchell believe that, to survive, colleges must be well run-flexible, effective, and forward thinking. The authors begin with a fundamental premise-that colleges and universities must evolve and adapt by modernizing their practices, monetizing their assets, focusing on core educational strategies, and linking explicitly to the modern world. Discussing a broad range of leadership positions, including presidents, provosts, and board chairs, Leadership Matters touches on strategic planning, management and operations, stakeholder relations, campus and community, accreditation and athletic conferences, and much more. The authors offer an optimistic assessment based upon frank and stark conclusions about what colleges must do-and must not do-to remain relevant in the coming decades.

R642 Discovery Miles 6 420 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

- The book explores important relationships between social media and young people's cultural experiences and expressions and presents theoretical and conceptual grounding on a timely topic that maps directly to their everyday lives. - Eminently qualified and award-winning authors who are experienced in ethnographies (see author information) and documenting this age group. - The authors problematize pathologizing accounts that have been common in other studies into social media use (see, in particular, psychology) and instead focus on the social and emotional intersections and experiences of youth and young adults engaged with and through social media. - The theoretical and conceptual grounding applied enriches the book's malleability and extends its shelf life; that is, its methods and framework may be applied to newer and more emergent social media channels. - Adds socio-cultural dimensions to a topic that students, and the book's primary readers, will have immense familiarity with.

Internationalising Programmes in Higher Education - An Educational Development Perspective (Paperback): Jeanine... Internationalising Programmes in Higher Education - An Educational Development Perspective (Paperback)
Jeanine Gregersen-Hermans, Karen M Lauridsen
R928 Discovery Miles 9 280 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

This book addresses challenges that higher education institutions face when bridging the gap between internationalisation as a key university strategy and their delivery of interculturally competent and responsible graduates. Combining international case studies and research outcomes, it provides an in-depth understanding of the role educational developers can play in the internationalisation of higher education and in the provision of an internationalised learning experience for all students. The book situates international education in global and local contexts and contributes to the design and delivery of internationalised curricula in very concrete terms. In doing so, it suggests how academic staff may enhance the quality of their programmes by leveraging the opportunities of international classrooms where students have diverse academic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. The content of the book is therefore also foundational for continuing professional development (CPD) programmes that enhance staff competences for designing and teaching inclusive internationalised programmes and include topics such as: An international competence profile for educational developers Intercultural competence as a graduate attribute Internationalised curriculum design and delivery Intercultural group dynamics The role of languages in internationalised higher education classrooms Reflective processes for teaching and learning in the international classroom This book is essential reading and a go-to resource for any academic looking to internationalise their education programmes. It will also be of interest to those directly involved in curriculum development, learning, and teaching as well as those who have more strategic responsibilities within and beyond HEIs, or who are involved in higher education research.

STEM Education in the Junior Secondary - The State of Play (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018): Robyn Jorgensen, Kevin Larkin STEM Education in the Junior Secondary - The State of Play (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018)
Robyn Jorgensen, Kevin Larkin
R4,123 Discovery Miles 41 230 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book brings together a collection of internationally renowned authors in the STEM field to share innovations in the teaching of STEM. It focuses on the junior secondary years of education (students aged 11-15), since this is the age range in which students choose whether or not to formally opt out of STEM education. It is here that the book makes a significant contribution to the field by integrating the STEM area and focusing on the junior years of schooling. While developing this book, the editors drew on two main premises: Firstly, STEM is seen as the integrated study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a coherent learning paradigm that is based on real-world applications. Secondly, it is important to integrate digital technologies into STEM education beyond the superficial use of ICTs seen in many schools. The book also addresses the challenges within STEM education - many of which are long-standing. To this end, it includes chapters o n marginalised and diverse communities, ensuring that a broad range of perspectives on STEM education is included.

Bobby L Lovett
R595 R505 Discovery Miles 5 050 Save R90 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This narrative provides a comprehensive history of America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The book concludes that race, the Civil Rights movements, and black and white philanthropy had much affect on the development of these minority institutions. Northern white philanthropy had much to do with the start and maintenance of the nation's HBCUs from 1837 into the 1940s. Even from 1950 to 1970, HBCUs depended upon financial support of philanthropic groups, benevolent societies, and federal and state government agencies, but the survival of HBCUs became dependent mostly on their own creative responses to the changing environment of higher education and have helped to shape our culture and society.

Emigration, Employability and Higher Education in the Philippines (Hardcover): Yasmin  Y. Ortiga Emigration, Employability and Higher Education in the Philippines (Hardcover)
Yasmin Y. Ortiga
R3,123 Discovery Miles 31 230 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book investigates the dilemma of educating students for future work in the context of the Philippines, one of the top sources of migrant labor in the world. Here, colleges and universities are expected to not only educate students for jobs within the country, but for potential employers beyond national borders. It demonstrates how human capital ideology reinforces such export-oriented education, creating an assumed relationship among academic credentials, overseas opportunity, and future migrant remittances. Findings indicate that attempts to produce migrant workers undermine the job security of college instructors, skew local curriculum towards foreign requirements, and challenge efforts to develop academic programs in line with local needs. As more developing nations turn to migration as a development strategy, colleges and universities face increasing pressures to produce future migrant workers who will have an advantage over other nationalities. This book emphasises the importance of understanding how this global phenomenon affects colleges and universities, as well as the teachers and students within these institutions. This book raises important questions on the role of universities in today's global economy and the effects of contemporary migration flows on developing countries.

R604 R515 Discovery Miles 5 150 Save R89 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Collaborative Futures places graduate education at the center of ongoing efforts to legitimize publicly engaged scholarship within the academic profession. It is indispensable reading not only for graduate students seeking inspiration, resources, and usable frameworks for their engaged scholarship, but for the faculty who are called upon to mentor them and for university administrators seeking encouraging answers to questions about the future of graduate education. Given the erosion of the tenure system and the casualization of teaching labor, graduate programs and professional organizations in many fields now recognize the imperative to prepare doctoral students for careers wholly or partially outside academe. This book powerfully indicates both the need and the means to change institutional cultures and forge a publicly active path for graduate education.

Ahmet Atay, Diana Trebing
R3,012 Discovery Miles 30 120 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The term "special population" occupies a particular purpose and has a particular role in the discourse of higher education. This book uses the term as an umbrella term for any student who tends to be underrepresented on college campuses and has a very specific set of unique needs: among others, individuals with physical and learning disabilities, international students, ethnic minorities, LGBTQ students, single parents, and first generation and other non-traditional student groups. Sometimes these "special" student groups are visible to educators; however, quite often they are hidden in plain sight, which makes it difficult for educators to work effectively and meaningfully with these student groups. This book uses the framework of critical intercultural communication pedagogy to generate a discussion about pedagogical issues surrounding students who are categorized as "special populations", focusing on culturally sensitive pedagogical methods to educate all students.

Meredith Davis
R529 R499 Discovery Miles 4 990 Save R30 (6%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

An Expertly Written Guidebook to Teaching Design at All Levels Teaching Design provides a practical foundation for teaching about and through design. The exploding interest in design and design thinking calls for qualified faculty members who are well prepared for a variety of institutional settings and content areas. While designers know their disciplines, they frequently lack experience in constructing responsive curricula and pedagogies for rapidly evolving professions. And while K-12 educators are trained for the classroom, their ability to transform teaching and learning through design is limited by a shortfall in professional literature. Davis's extensive experience in education offers a detailed path for the development of curricula. The book addresses writing objectives and learning outcomes that succeed in the counting-and-measuring culture of institutions but also meet the demands of a twenty-first-century education. An inventory of pedagogical strategies suggests approaches to learning that serve both college professors and K-12 teachers who want to actively engage students in critical and creative thinking. Sections on assessment make the case for performance-based activities that provide credible evidence of student learning. Davis also discusses the nature of contemporary problems and teaching strategies that are well matched to growing complexity, rapid technological change, and increased demand for interdisciplinary engagement. Examples in Teaching Design span the design disciplines and draw on Davis's experience in teaching seminars for college faculty, graduate courses for design students seeking academic careers, and workshops for K-12 teachers converting their classrooms into centers for innovation.
