Anticipating Education - Concepts for Imagining Pedagogy with Psychoanalysis (Paperback): Deborah Britzman Anticipating Education - Concepts for Imagining Pedagogy with Psychoanalysis (Paperback)
Deborah Britzman
R958 Discovery Miles 9 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Anticipating Education is an interdisciplinary collection of Britzman's previously published and unpublished papers that examines the dilemmas created by anticipating education, provoked when teachers, students, and professors encounter the unknown while trying to know emotional situations affecting their waiting, wanting, and wishing for teaching and learning. Anticipation has a particular flavor in scenes of education and not only since schooling presents again the mise-en-scene of childhood; anticipation also signifies the estranged temporality of anxiety, phantasies, and defense that compose and decompose hopes for transforming knowledge, sociality, and subjectivity in group life. This book is composed of Britzman's well regarded and highly cited conceptual contributions to thinking broadly on topics of intersubjectivity and pedagogy at the university and schools; the reception of difficult knowledge as unresolved social conflicts in pedagogical thought; and the significance of psychoanalysis with pedagogy. Four themes address the anxieties of teaching and learning: phantasies of education; difficult knowledge; transforming subjects; and, psychoanalysis with education. Anticipating Education is required reading for every newly-minted faculty member. The wisdom provided in this volume will prove to be invaluable to your future career.

R3,183 Discovery Miles 31 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Co-published with the Gardner Institute At last there is a handbook that everyone in higher education can use to help increase transfer student success. This comprehensive resource has been brought together to meet the need for a truly holistic approach to the transfer experience. The book brings together research, theory, practical applications, programmatic illustrations, case studies, encouragement, and inspiration, and is supplemented by an online compendium for continual updates of resources, case studies, and new developments in the world of transfer. Based on a totally different way of thinking about, understanding, and acting to increase transfer student success, The Transfer Experience goes far beyond the traditional, limited view of transfer as a technical process simply about articulating credits, a stage of student development, or a novel enrollment management strategy. Rather, the book introduces a stimulating array of new perspectives, resources, options, models, and recommendations for addressing the many needs of this huge cohort - making the academic, civic, and social justice cases for improving transfer at both transfer-sending and transfer-receiving institutions.

Fred A Bonner II, Rosa M. Banda, Stella L. Smith, Aretha F Marbley
R948 Discovery Miles 9 480 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Developing alternative student development frameworks and models, this groundbreaking book provides student affairs practitioners, as well as faculty, with illuminating perspectives and viable approaches for understanding the development of today's diverse student populations, and for building the foundation for their academic success and self-authorship. With the increasing number of adult working students, minoritized, multiracial, LGTBQ, and first-generation students, this book offers readers vital insights into, and ways to interrogate, existing practice, and develop relevant responses to the needs of these populations. Building on and critiquing the past frameworks, and integrating the insights of contemporary scholarship on student development, the contributors collectively put forward a robust theoretical and methodological foundation for this work, using Critical Race Theory as their central frame. CRT allows chapter authors to situate race related encounters at the center of their proposed alternative framework or model, and deconstruct and challenge commonly held assumptions about diverse college student development. In the tradition of CRT, each author offers an alternative model or framework that can be applied to the diverse population upon which the chapter is framed, prompting readers to address such questions as: Who are our college students? What set of experiences do our students bring to the higher education context? What role have their environments/contexts (i.e. home, p-12, community, family, peer groups, mentors) played in our student's lives? What impact have intervening variables (i.e. race, oppression, power) had on their experiences? What strategies do they use to overcome developmental obstacles? How do they define success, and how they know they have achieved it? By laying bare the experiences of these diverse college students that inform this volume's "alternative" frameworks this book contests that notion that they constitute square pegs that must fit into the round holes of traditional frameworks.

Pursuing Quality, Access, and Affordability - A Field Guide to Improving Higher Education (Hardcover): Stephen C. Ehrmann Pursuing Quality, Access, and Affordability - A Field Guide to Improving Higher Education (Hardcover)
Stephen C. Ehrmann
R3,183 Discovery Miles 31 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Whether they recognize it or not, virtually all colleges and universities face three Grand Challenges: Improve the learning outcomes of a higher education: A large majority of college graduates are weak in capabilities that faculty and employers both see as crucial Extend more equitable access to degrees: Too often, students from underserved groups and poor households either don't enter college or else drop out without a degree. The latter group may be worse off economically than if they'd never attempted college. Make academic programs more affordable (in money and time) for students and other important stakeholder groups: Many potential students believe they lack the money or time needed for academic success. Many faculty believe they don't have time to make their courses and degree programs more effective. Many institutions believe they can't afford to improve outcomes. These challenges are global. But, in a higher education system such as that in the United States, the primary response must be institutional. This book analyzes how, over the years, six pioneering colleges and universities have begun to make visible, cumulative progress on all three fronts.

The Architecture of LSU (Hardcover): J Michael Desmond The Architecture of LSU (Hardcover)
J Michael Desmond
R1,456 Discovery Miles 14 560 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The core of the LSU campus is an example of what we can do when we set our sights high. It stands out today as one of the most successful and inspiring examples in the state, one meant by its architect to become an intuitive course in architecture for the students, spreading the influence of its ideals and inspirations across the highlands and lowlands of Louisiana. from The Architecture of LSU When viewed from the technical vantage point of an architect, the discerning eye of an artist, or sociocultural perspective of a historian, the remarkable buildings of Louisiana State University reveal not only a legacy that goes back to the Renaissance, but also a primer of architectural principles that guided the creation of one of the most distinctive academic environments in the United States. Author, professor, and architect J. Michael Desmond traces the university s development from its origins in Pineville, Louisiana, before the Civil War, through its two downtown Baton Rouge locations, to its move to the Williams Gartness Plantation south of the city in the 1920s. The layout of the present campus began with the picturesque vision of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. The German-born architect Theodore Link developed and reinterpreted the Olmsted campus plan, producing designs for fourteen of the nineteen core campus buildings. After his untimely death in 1923, the New Orleans firm of Wogan & Bernard completed the buildings in Link s masterplan, which in their formal symmetry and fine classical details reflect the influence of sixteenth-century architect Andrea Palladio. Explosive growth during the 1930s and the impact of the automobile demanded an expansion beyond the campus core. The firm of Weiss, Dreyfous & Seiferth took over as campus architects in 1932, and Baton Rouge landscaper Steele Burden oversaw the live oak plantings for which the LSU campus is now renowned. The essential structure of the campus and its landscape was in place by the time the United States entered World War II. The Architecture of LSU includes a wealth of photographs, plans, drawings, and maps that underscore the contributions of key historical figures and the genealogies of the campus s architecture and planning. By meticulously tracing the origins and evolution of LSU s architectural core and exploring the wider scope of American college campus design, Desmond shows the far-reaching rewards of public environments that integrate natural and constructed elements to meet both practical and aesthetic goals.

R1,141 Discovery Miles 11 410 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Cultural Impact on Conflict Management in Higher Education shares information regarding conflict management and resolution in higher education from a global perspective. In this book, we introduced many conflict resolution methods from different regions in the world. You can borrow some successful strategies and examine the differences and similarities between contexts. The book shares a conflict resolution model which may direct the reader to start thinking about addressing and managing conflicts from different levels of organizations. This book is a collective work of authors coming from all over the world. We chose higher education as the context because it is a place where diverse thoughts, perspectives, and people come together. Because of the potential richness of diversity on a college campus, the opportunity for conflicts occurs. Managing conflict does not work when there is a "one-way only approach/model" for addressing conflict. Some conflict resolution encompasses multiple dimensions: (a) one's personal beliefs or beliefs about an issue; (b) an individual's personal history in terms of how the conflict was perceived as something to be discussed or not; (c) work culture of the conflict where if `one has a conflict,' the person or unit is messing up or there is a problem person; (d) the unconscious strategies of `face saving' (trying to maintain one's image) present; (e) social hierarchies or relationships; and (f) the diversity dimensions and issues that may be present.

College and university faculty in the arts (visual, studio, language, music, design, and others) regularly grade and assess undergraduate student work but often with little guidance or support. As a result, many arts faculty, especially new faculty, adjunct faculty, and graduate student instructors, feel bewildered and must "reinvent the wheel" when grappling with the challenges and responsibilities of grading and assessing student work. Meaningful Grading: A Guide for Faculty in the Arts enables faculty to create and implement effective assessment methodologies-research based and field tested-in traditional and online classrooms. In doing so, the book reveals how the daunting challenges of grading in the arts can be turned into opportunities for deeper student learning, increased student engagement, and an enlivened pedagogy.

Race and the University - A Memoir (Paperback): George Henderson Race and the University - A Memoir (Paperback)
George Henderson; Foreword by David W Levy
R490 Discovery Miles 4 900 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In 1967, George Henderson, the son of uneducated Alabama sharecroppers, accepted a full-time professorship at the University of Oklahoma, despite his mentor's warning to avoid the "redneck school in a backward state." Henderson became the university's third African American professor, a hire that seemed to suggest the dissolving of racial divides. However, when real estate agents in the university town of Norman denied the Henderson family their first three choices of homes, the sociologist and educator realized he still faced some formidable challenges.

In this stirring memoir, Henderson recounts his formative years at the University of Oklahoma, during the late 1960s and early 1970s. He describes in graphic detail the obstacles that he and other African Americans faced within the university community, a place of "white privilege, black separatism, and campus-wide indifference to bigotry." As an adviser and mentor to young black students who wanted to do something about these conditions, Henderson found himself at the forefront of collective efforts to improve race relations at the university. Henderson is quick to acknowledge that he and his fellow activists did not abolish all vestiges of racial oppression. But they set in motion a host of institutional changes that continue to this day. In Henderson's words, "we were ordinary people who sometimes did extraordinary things."

Capturing what was perhaps the most tumultuous era in the history of American higher education, "Race and the University "includes valuable recollections of former student activists who helped transform the University of Oklahoma into one of the nation's most diverse college campuses.
