Sayed Hadi Sadeghi
R2,860 Discovery Miles 28 600 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book discusses the concept of the smart campus and e-learning practice in tertiary education, showing the relevance of the smart campus to the current learning environment. It provides a pedagogical framework for good practice in smart university campuses. The book outlines the interdisciplinary concept of the smart campus and draws on technology, education, and learning sciences to show how the smart campus can best work. It examines e-practice assessment in three different contexts, namely the United States, Australia, and Iran, from the perspective of administrators, faculty members, and students. Using this international comparative analysis, the book determines the existing advantages and disadvantages of existing e-learning systems. It offers a framework for researchers and developers to accelerate and assess the readiness of current campuses to optimize teaching, learning, and research at the university. This highly topical book will be essential reading for researchers, scholars, and post-graduate students in the fields of educational technology, digital education, higher education, and e-learning. It will also be useful for higher education instructors and university administrators to understand how smart campus knowledge can be integrated with other learning and teaching experiences.

Brian L Foster, Steven W Graham, Joe F. Donaldson
R2,071 Discovery Miles 20 710 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Applied Anthropology provides a new perspective on today's higher education environment. Volatile and unpredictable forces affect research and instruction across many sectors and levels, and global dynamics are among the strongest drivers of change. Further, within American higher education, daunting complexity and multiple layers of activity weave a rich tapestry of environment, structure, and culture. This book provides three complementary anthropological perspectives as a framework for analyzing the ground-shifting changes underway in higher education - the higher education mindset, political and policy perspectives, and instruction and learning. These domains intersect with many operational dimensions of higher education - research, health care, athletics, economic development, fiscal management, planning, and faculty roles/challenges - another way of framing the complexity of the situation we are addressing. Book chapters also provide a set of implications for higher education policy. The book concludes with a vision of next steps in research and practice to further anthropology's contribution to higher education policy and practice. The intended audience includes both academic and professionals-e.g., faculty and students in departments of higher education, anthropology, and education policy. Higher education leaders, administrators, governing board members, and many others will find the book helpful in providing insight into today's challenges. The book will also be of use to professionals outside higher education who work on policy issues, on meeting the needs of employers, and on preparing students for careers in public service.

At Fault - Joyce and the Crisis of the Modern University (Hardcover): Sebastian D.G. Knowles At Fault - Joyce and the Crisis of the Modern University (Hardcover)
Sebastian D.G. Knowles
R1,894 R1,795 Discovery Miles 17 950 Save R99 (5%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

At Fault is an exhilarating celebration of risk-taking in the work of James Joyce. Esteemed Joyce scholar and teacher Sebastian Knowles takes on the American university system, arguing that the modernist writer offers the antidote to the risk-averse attitudes that are increasingly constraining institutions of higher education today. Knowles shows how Joyce's work connects with research, teaching, and service, the three primary functions of the academic enterprise. He demonstrates that Joyce's texts continually push beyond themselves, resisting the end, defying delimitation. The characters in these texts also move outward-in a centrifugal pattern-looking for escape. Knowles further highlights the expansiveness of Joyce's world by undertaking topics as diverse as the symbol of Jumbo the elephant, the meaning of the gramophone, live music performance in the "Sirens" episode of Ulysses, the neurology of humor, and inventive ways of teaching Finnegans Wake. Contending that error is the central theme in all of Joyce's work, Knowles argues that the freedom to challenge boundaries and make mistakes is essential to the university environment. Energetic and delightfully erudite, Knowles inspires readers with the infinite possibilities of human thought exemplified by Joyce's writing.

Geoff Whitty, Tony Edwards, Sharon Gewirtz
R2,158 Discovery Miles 21 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1993, Specialisation and Choice in Urban Education explores how city technology colleges (CTC) have managed the task of selecting intakes representatives of their catchment areas and explore their impact on local schools. From their announcements in 1986, CTC have been presented both as a new choice of school for the inner city and as pointing the way to a more diversified education system. This account of their development uses interviews with key architects of the initiative to identify more clearly the objectives CTCs were designed to serve. It then draws on interviews and observation in CTCs themselves to discover how far these schools are becoming centres of innovation in school management, curriculum and approaches to teaching and learning. Throughout, the CTC policy is considered in the context of Government's broader political project to challenge 'welfarism' and to encourage entrepreneurship, competition, and choice. This book is an essential read for scholars and researchers of education policy, sociology of education, and education in general.

The Teaching of Science - Education, Science and Society (Hardcover): F.R. Jevons The Teaching of Science - Education, Science and Society (Hardcover)
F.R. Jevons
R2,157 Discovery Miles 21 570 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1969, The Teaching of Science primarily deals with science teaching in secondary schools and universities but its searching discussion of criteria concerns all who have to do with education. The concise but well-documented treatments of the nature of the scientific process and of the social implications of science will be of interest to many scientists and especially useful for teachers of general studies. Professor Jevons looks first at why we should teach science and thereby sheds light on the more immediately practical problems of how it should be done. He thus does more than merely add to the already large volume of exhortation to make it more attractive and intellectually stimulating.

Toward Quality Assurance and Excellence in Higher Education (Hardcover): Ahmed O. Al Jaber, Haifaa O. Elayyan Toward Quality Assurance and Excellence in Higher Education (Hardcover)
Ahmed O. Al Jaber, Haifaa O. Elayyan
R2,094 Discovery Miles 20 940 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Quality Assurance is not a new concept in the education sector in general, and higher education in particular, though it is becoming increasingly more relevant and important. Higher education helps to improve an individual's quality of life by enabling them to inflate their knowledge and expertise, to grasp abstract concepts and theories, and to raise their awareness of the world and their community, and as such the assurance of quality is becoming more pivotal in the whole education process. There is no simple definition of the concept of quality in education, though numerous models and theories have been devised. Toward Quality Assurance and Excellence of Higher Education is a new episode of the Quality Assurance perception in higher education, which identifies the quality culture and orientation from the beginning, integrating crucial factors to build a "pyramid" of higher education excellence. The book compares concepts from the main theories of Quality Assurance, management and control when they are applied to educational systems in higher education. The book also presents a new model of excellence in higher education. Excellence is an architecture of building blocks that includes process performance, effectiveness, harmony and collaboration, and these bocks should be incorporated in a quality-oriented concept for sustainable excellence of higher education. The model integrates four main facets: the Educational System, Quality Assurance Managing and Control, Strategic Planning and Globalization. Also presented are international "best-practices" in quality assurance in higher education, from Japan and Finland.

Women and Gender in Higher Education - Looking Forward, Looking Back (Paperback): Ann Wendle Women and Gender in Higher Education - Looking Forward, Looking Back (Paperback)
Ann Wendle
R1,178 Discovery Miles 11 780 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Since the founding of the nation, higher education has helped female faculty and students to assert themselves to establish equality between men and women across the country (Morris, 1984). During the nineteenth century, women had limited access to many sectors of American society because of their inferior status to men. Such differences were visible in both political and academic arenas. This discrimination reflected general societal norms of the time, relegating women to the roles of mothers and homemakers. Theoretically, there are several models that address the development of women in higher education. Women and Gender in Higher Education provides a comprehensive review of the various concepts that illustrate how women understand the world around them, make meaning for themselves and their environment, and acknowledge the intersectionality of their identity. In addition, it breaks new ground in the conversation about the roles of women and gender in higher education.

The Hidden Curriculum - First Generation Students at Legacy Universities (Hardcover): Rachel Gable The Hidden Curriculum - First Generation Students at Legacy Universities (Hardcover)
Rachel Gable
R472 Discovery Miles 4 720 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A revealing look at the experiences of first generation students on elite campuses and the hidden curriculum they must master in order to succeed College has long been viewed as an opportunity for advancement and mobility for talented students regardless of background. Yet for first generation students, elite universities can often seem like bastions of privilege, with unspoken academic norms and social rules. The Hidden Curriculum draws on more than one hundred in-depth interviews with students at Harvard and Georgetown to offer vital lessons about the challenges of being the first in the family to go to college, while also providing invaluable insights into the hurdles that all undergraduates face. As Rachel Gable follows two cohorts of first generation students and their continuing generation peers, she discovers surprising similarities as well as striking differences in their college experiences. She reveals how the hidden curriculum at legacy universities often catches first generation students off guard, and poignantly describes the disorienting encounters on campus that confound them and threaten to derail their success. Gable shows how first-gens are as varied as any other demographic group, and urges universities to make the most of the diverse perspectives and insights these talented students have to offer. The Hidden Curriculum gives essential guidance on the critical questions that university leaders need to consider as they strive to support first generation students on campus, and demonstrates how universities can balance historical legacies and elite status with practices and policies that are equitable and inclusive for all students.

Achieving Equity in Higher Education Using Empathy as a Guiding Principle (Paperback): Catherine Ward Achieving Equity in Higher Education Using Empathy as a Guiding Principle (Paperback)
Catherine Ward
R3,280 Discovery Miles 32 800 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The assertion that empathy is an essential characteristic of equity work in higher education demands educators operate from a place of justice, fairness, and inclusive practice. Empathy is a personal quality that allows educators to consider another's perspective to inform the decision-making process about policy, procedures, program and service design, and teaching pedagogy. Thus, engaging empathy in everyday practice supports the potential to create more equitable and inclusive environments as well as standards for serving a diverse student population. Achieving Equity in Higher Education Using Empathy as a Guiding Principle explores what empathy is, how empathy can be developed, and how empathy can be applied in an educator's practice to achieve equity-mindedness and mitigate inequitable student outcomes in and out of the classroom. The book also argues that self-examination and engaging empathy is a way to thoughtfully examine differences and uphold the values of humanity. Covering topics such as intercultural listening and program development, this reference work is ideal for administrators, practitioners, academicians, scholars, researchers, instructors, and students.

The assertion that empathy is an essential characteristic of equity work in higher education puts forth that for educators to operate from a place of justice, fairness, and inclusive practice, understanding one's capacity for empathy is key. Empathy is a personal quality that allows educators to take another's perspective to inform the decision-making process about policy, procedures, program and service design, and teaching pedagogy. Engaging empathy in our everyday practice supports our potential to create more equitable and inclusive environments and standards for serving a diverse student population. This publication explores what empathy is, how empathy can be developed, and how empathy can be applied in an educator's practice to achieve equity-mindedness and mitigate inequitable student outcomes in and out of the classroom. This publication answers questions about how to serve a diverse study body effectively, supporting personal growth and the ability to understand individual and collective experiences through a more empathic and equitable lens. Educators often go unexamined in their efforts; this publication argues that self-examination and engaging empathy is a way to move toward thoughtfully working across differences and upholding the values of humanity. This book is ideal for higher education administrators, staff, and faculty in student affairs and academic affairs.

Most Americans no longer question whether and which students should be prepared for college. Rather, it is now widely accepted that ALL students should be prepared for postsecondary education in some form (e.g., certificate, 2- or 4-year degree), as these credentials are not only required for many jobs but are also the surest path to upward mobility (Carnevale, Rose, Cheah, 2011). There is also greater recognition that in addition to a more traditional approach to preparation for postsecondary education (e.g., taking college preparatory classes), students should also graduate high school with technical knowledge and employability skills to secure, retain, and advance their employment when they leave school, at whatever level that may be. Simply put, today's high school graduates need a broad-based education that combines an array of knowledge, skills, and experiences to prepare them for life after high school. And indeed, state's definitions of college and career readiness have broadened in recent years to include a variety of skills and dispositions, such as critical thinking skills, social emotional skills such as collaboration, and interpersonal skills such as resilience and perseverance (English, Rasmussen, Cushing, & Therriault, 2016). The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, the key federal K-12 legislation, explicitly supports the notion of a "well-rounded" student, emphasizing readiness in areas beyond its predecessor's (the No Child Left Behind Act, or NCLB) focus on core academic content. ESSA mandates that states ensure thatstudents are provided an enriched, accelerated curriculum beyond courses and content areas in which state assessments are given (e.g., mathematics, reading) and that is aligned with the postsecondary experiences students are likely to encounter. ESSA also supports an expansion of readiness goals through provisions for the improvement of conditions for student learning that support social-emotional learning, intrapersonal skills, and other employability skills. And ESSA includes provisions in states' accountability systems that support emphasis on broader definitions of readiness. Additionally, ESSA's accountability framework includes important principles for supporting a broader definition of what students need to know and be able to do once they graduate high school. Accountability systems under ESSA may include multiple measures of college and career readiness. Indeed, several states had already added a career-focused indicator prior to ESSA passing (such as pathway completion or technical assessment achievement) to their accountability systems, and the number of states publicly reporting such indicators continues to increase (Achieve & AdvanceCTE, 2016). As definitions and measures of college and career readiness continue to evolve, we know one thing for sure: we need to better prepare ALL students for success after high school. This book explores the ways in which some education researchers are approaching this task.
