Applying Anthropology to General Education - Reshaping Colleges and Universities for the 21st Century (Hardcover): Jennifer R... Applying Anthropology to General Education - Reshaping Colleges and Universities for the 21st Century (Hardcover)
Jennifer R Wies, Hillary J Haldane
R2,858 Discovery Miles 28 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The current higher education policy and practice landscape is simultane-ously marked by uncertainty and hope, and nowhere are these tensions more present than in discussions and actions around general education. This volume uses an anthropological approach to contemplate ways of re-imagining general education for the 21st century and how faculty, teach-ers, administrators, and others can transform the educational endeavor to be holistic, comprehensive, and aligned with the needs of people and the planet in the decades to come. Included are analyses of general education concepts such as "diversity," case studies of general education and con-necting curricula, opportunities for faculty development, unique general education student populations, assessment strategies, and philosophical/ pedagogical challenges. Contributors make the case that far from receding from a central role in higher education, there is a need to strengthen general education curricula as key to the educational needs of students, for the skills and competencies they require in the workplace and for civic engagement.

The End of the Modernist Era in Arts and Academia (Hardcover): Bruce Fleming The End of the Modernist Era in Arts and Academia (Hardcover)
Bruce Fleming
R2,852 Discovery Miles 28 520 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book identifies the-now moribund-Modernist spirit of the twentieth century, with its "make it new" attitude in the arts, and its tendency towards abstraction and the scientific process, as the impetus behind the academic structures of universities and museums, together with the development of discrete scholarly disciplines such as literary theory, sociology, and art history based on quasi-scientific principles. Arguing that the Modernist project is approaching exhaustion and that the insights that it has left to yield are approaching triviality, it explores the Modernist links between the arts and academic pursuits of the West-and their relationship with street protests-in the long twentieth century, considering what might follow this Modernist era. An examination of the broad cultural and intellectual-and now political-trends of our age, and their decline, The End of the Modernist Era in Arts and Academia will appeal to scholars and students of social theory, philosophy, literary studies, and cultural studies.

First published in 1983, Understanding Student Learning provides an in-depth analysis of students' learning methods in higher education, at the time. It examines the extent to which these learning methods reflected the teaching, assessment and individual personalities of the students involved. The book contains interviews with students, experiments and statistical analyses of survey data in order to identify successes and difficulties in student learning and the culmination of these techniques is a clearer insight into the process of student learning.

Demystifying Outcomes Assessment for International Educators - A Practical Approach (Paperback): Darla K. Deardorff Demystifying Outcomes Assessment for International Educators - A Practical Approach (Paperback)
Darla K. Deardorff; Foreword by Trudy W Banta, Hans de Wit
R837 Discovery Miles 8 370 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

For many in international education, assessment can seem daunting and overwhelming, especially given that such efforts need to involve much more than a pre/post survey. This book is a practical guide to learning-outcomes assessment in international education for practitioners who are starting to engage with the process, as well as for those who want to improve the quality and effectiveness of their assessment efforts. Assuming no prior knowledge, the book offers an accessible and clear road map to the application of assessment. Recognizing that a one size fits all approach cannot capture the diversity of goals and settings of international education, or the rich variety of programs and organizations involved in delivering it, author Darla Deardorff provides the reader with foundational principles and knowledge to develop appropriate assessment approaches for evaluating and improving student learning outcomes, which are the drivers of higher education internationalizationShe provides the background for assessment, highlights how the characteristics of international education pose unique challenges for assessment, considers the contexts to which assessment may be applied whether in cross-border or at home institutional experiences, such as in curricular, co-curricular or extracurricular settings and distills a seemingly convoluted process into a manageable approach. From the basics of getting started in assessment to highlighting pitfalls to avoid, this book offers a holistic and practical approach to assessment that moves beyond seeing assessment as a discrete activity to on-going process that is integrated into student learning. There is also a unique chapter for education leaders on assessment essentials from a leadership-perspective. The appendices include worksheets for implementing assessment, creating an assessment team, and getting buy-in from stakeholders. Other appendices include a list of standards adapted to international education outcomes assessment, guidance on assessing intercultural competence, and resources. This book reflects the author s experience of over a decade of work with international education programs and higher education institutions around the world, and synthesizes what she has learned into an easy-to-use resource for anyone who wants to understand and utilize effective assessment in the field of international education.

"What do women academics classify as challenging, inequitable, or hostile work environments and experiences? How do these vary by women s race/ethnicity, rank, sexual orientation, or other social locations?""How do academic cultures and organizational structures work independently and in tandem to foster or challenge such work climates?" "What actions can institutions and individuals independently and collectively take toward equity in the academy?"Despite tremendous progress toward gender equality and equity in institutions of higher education, deep patterns of discrimination against women in the academy persist. From the chilly climate to the old boys club, women academics must navigate structures and cultures that continue to marginalize, penalize, and undermine their success.This book is a tool kit for advancing greater gender equality and equity in higher education. It presents the latest research on issues of concern to women academics, and to anyone interested in a more equitable academy. It documents the challenging, sometimes hostile experiences of women academics through feminist analysis of qualitative and quantitative data, including narratives from women academics of different races and ethnicities across disciplines, ranks, and university types. The contributors research draws upon the experiences of women academics including those with under-examined identities such as lesbian, feminist, married or unmarried, and contingent faculty. And, it offers new perspectives on persistent issues such as family policies, pay and promotion inequalities, and disproportionate service burdens. The editors provide case studies of women academics who have encountered antagonistic workplaces, and offer action steps, best practices, and more than 100 online resources for individuals navigating similar situations. Beyond women in academe, this book is for their allies and for administrators interested in changing the climates, cultures, and policies that allow gender inequality to exist on their campuses, and to researchers/scholars investigating these phenomena. It aims to disrupt complacency amongst those who claim that things are better or good enough and to provide readers with strategies and resources to counter barriers created by culture, climate, or institutional structures."

R2,848 Discovery Miles 28 480 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.

Specifications Grading - Restoring Rigor, Motivating Students, and Saving Faculty Time (Hardcover): Linda B. Nilson Specifications Grading - Restoring Rigor, Motivating Students, and Saving Faculty Time (Hardcover)
Linda B. Nilson; Foreword by Claudia J Stanny
R3,172 Discovery Miles 31 720 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In her latest book Linda Nilson puts forward an innovative but practical and tested approach to grading that can demonstrably raise academic standards, motivate students, tie their achievement of learning outcomes to their course grades, save faculty time and stress, and provide the reliable gauge of student learning that the public and employers are looking for. She argues that the grading system most commonly in use now is unwieldy, imprecise and unnecessarily complex, involving too many rating levels for too many individual assignments and tests, and based on a hairsplitting point structure that obscures the underlying criteria and encourages students to challenge their grades. This new specifications grading paradigm restructures assessments to streamline the grading process and greatly reduce grading time, empower students to choose the level of attainment they want to achieve, reduce antagonism between the evaluator and the evaluated, and increase student receptivity to meaningful feedback, thus facilitating the learning process - all while upholding rigor. In addition, specs grading increases students' motivation to do well by making expectations clear, lowering their stress and giving them agency in determining their course goals. Among the unique characteristics of the schema, all of which simplify faculty decision making, are the elimination of partial credit, the reliance on a one-level grading rubric and the "bundling" of assignments and tests around learning outcomes. Successfully completing more challenging bundles (or modules) earns a student a higher course grade. Specs grading works equally well in small and large class settings and encourages "authentic assessment." Used consistently over time, it can restore credibility to grades by demonstrating and making transparent to all stakeholders the learning outcomes that students achieve. This book features many examples of courses that faculty have adapted to spec grading and lays out the surprisingly simple transition process. It is intended for all members of higher education who teach, whatever the discipline and regardless of rank, as well as those who oversee, train, and advise those who teach. Specification grading promotes the following values and outcomes. It: 1. Upholds High Academic Standards 2. Reflects Student Attainment of Skills and Knowledge 3. Motivates Students to Learn and to Excel 4. Fosters Higher-Order Cognitive Development and Creativity 5. Discourages Cheating 6. Reduces Student Stress 7. Makes Students Feel Responsible for Their Grades 8. Minimizes Conflict Between Faculty and Students 9. Saves Faculty Time and Is Simple to Administer 10. Makes Expectations Clear and Simplifies Feedback for Improvement 11. Assesses Authentically 12. Achieves High Inter-Rater Agreement

R704 R597 Discovery Miles 5 970 Save R107 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Shaping College Football is the story of the intercollegiate gridiron sport in the years immediately after World War I when the game underwent monumental changes that transformed it into one of America's fundamental sporting attractions and a commercial entity that would be recognizable to any twenty-first century fan. Raymond Schmidt examines the many factors that were a part of college football's reshaping in the 1920s as universities became dependent upon the revenue being generated by football, and the sport increasingly became identified as a commercialized, big business activity. Offering the most detailed examination ever undertaken of college football's ""Golden Era,"" Schmidt covers issues ranging from the shift of power away from the game's pioneering schools, through the real evolution of forward passing, to stadium building and the decade-long struggle over the game's growing overemphasis that culminated in the legendary Carnegie Report of 1929.

Michele Tracy Berger, Cheryl L Radeloff
R3,553 Discovery Miles 35 530 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Transforming Scholarship is a user-friendly work of practical guidance and inspiration for supporting a student's interest in a Women's Studies degree. Berger and Radeloff use empirical evidence to help students with the major barriers they face when exploring Women's Studies: the negative response a student often faces when announcing to the world that he or she is interested in Women s Studies; and the perceived lack of employment and career options that supposedly comes with graduating with a Women's Studies degree. This book will support students to think critically about what they know, how to demonstrate what they know, and how to prepare for life both personally and professionally after the degree. Transforming Scholarship is a practical guide for students interested in women s and gender studies that targets advanced undergraduates who have a firm connection to the discipline. This book is ideal for women s and gender capstone courses, and for those who have finished their degree and need a resource to assist in conceptualizing the answers to the question "What s next?"

This second edition of Transforming Scholarship focuses on areas that undergraduates might want integrate into their women s and gender studies education: study abroad, civic engagement projects, internships, independent studies, and honors theses. It includes exercises to help flesh out talents, passions, and skills, and how to link them to employment, information about the diversity of employment opportunities (and further professional training) available, and a plan to help prepare for graduation. It also delves into how to live a feminist life after graduation, including activism after college, building and sustaining feminist communities, and feminist parenting. The authors have also added new "Point of View" boxes throughout the book, where scholars focus on contemporary issues and deepen a student s understanding of the organizations and individuals fighting to end sexist oppression."

Experiential Learning - Assessment and Accreditation (Hardcover): Norman Evans Experiential Learning - Assessment and Accreditation (Hardcover)
Norman Evans
R2,156 Discovery Miles 21 560 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1992, Experiential Learning was written to explore in detail the ways in which the assessment and accreditation of prior and current experiential learning (APEL) was being practised in higher education, further education, community and voluntary provision, training organisations and employment, in provision for the unemployed, youth training schemes, and for updating and retraining. The book argues that individuals can be encouraged and motivated to learn if they are enabled to develop a due sense of their own capacity to learn. It looks at the background of APEL in Britain, and explores its progression into a day-to-day concern for policy-makers and providers of formal courses and training and development programmes in many sectors. It also considers how APEL can be used alongside other economic and social developments to improve the organisation and the provision of opportunities for learning at the post-secondary stage. Experiential Learning will appeal to those with an interest in the history and theory of the assessment and accreditation of experiential learning.

Classic Writings for a Phenomenology of Practice (Paperback): Michael van Manen, Max Van Manen Classic Writings for a Phenomenology of Practice (Paperback)
Michael van Manen, Max Van Manen
R924 Discovery Miles 9 240 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Classic Writings for a Phenomenology of Practice features examples of newly translated classic phenomenological texts that have been largely forgotten or misunderstood. The writings are unique in that they speak to the practice of doing phenomenological research for the purpose of gaining insights and better understandings regarding aspects of professional practice and ordinary life phenomena and events. Phenomenology does not have to be impenetrable philosophy, dealing with tedious technical issues. Instead, phenomenology may offer relevance, value, and enduring allure to readers and researchers who are engaged with the quotidian life experiences and events of students, patients, clients, friends, and other individuals. This phenomenological approach aims to stay as close as possible to the ordinary events of everyday life: seeing the first smile of a child, feeling compulsive, being humorous, having a conversation, experiencing childhood secrecy, encountering new things-topics that span a manifold of life experiences. In this collection of classic phenomenological writings, each author is thoughtfully introduced, and each text is followed by a conversational descant: a reflection on the phenomenological reflection. The presentation of these classic writings and their reflections aims to show us what it means to do phenomenology directly on the phenomena that we live-thus asking us to be attentive to the fascinating varieties and subtleties of primal lived experiences and consciousness in all its remarkable complexities. This book is relevant for scholars and students who are interested in human science research and the origins and practices of the phenomenological method.

Donald E. Heller, Madeleine B. d'Ambrosio
R2,159 Discovery Miles 21 590 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This volume, part of the TIAA-CREF Institute Series on Higher Education, is based on a national conference convened by the Institute in November 2007. The generational issues that were the focus of the conference raise both risks and opportunities with the potential to profoundly affect our cultural environment, both inside and outside academe. Baby Boomers, in their roles as students, parents, professors and administrators, transformed the American higher education system. As Boomers near retirement, Generation X and the Millennials are building on those contributions and making their own impacts. This volume sheds light on a current front-burner issue in higher education: managing the melding of generations, each with its unique needs and approaches to teaching and learning. The result of discussions among presidents, provosts, and other senior-level leaders from the higher education community, as well as the scholarship of leading academics, this lucid and engaging volume addresses intergenerational shifts and their wide-ranging implications for higher education including relevant risks and opportunities for consideration by campus leaders. The type of institution represented in these discussions ranges from small teaching-focused institutions to community colleges and large comprehensive research institutions. The authors offer senior leadership a deeper understanding of these generational challenges and opportunities and provide them with new and actionable information to enhance decision-making and inform strategic planning. They offer scholars new research questions to examine and provide insights to enhance effective reporting on higher education issues. Higher education presidents, chancellors, provosts, CFOs, faculty, researchers and policymakers will find this volume to be of significant value.

R2,428 Discovery Miles 24 280 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The global education revolution of the 20th century resulted in massive developments in education worldwide, but the higher education sector throughout Africa remains surprisingly underdeveloped. Although impressive expansion and reform of higher education in Africa have occurred since 1990, the higher education sector across Africa has been particularly challenged to keep pace with the development of higher education worldwide. This is reflected in comparatively limited research output by African university scholars and researchers and the limited representation of African universities on world institutional rankings. Given both the perceived and real gap in research productivity and scholarly reputation between African higher education and higher education systems in other parts of the world, the question persists whether or not the African higher education sector can produce "world-class" universities.

Since the inception of the United Nations Global Compact sponsored initiative Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in 2007, there has been increased debate over how to adapt management education to best meet the demands of the 21st-century business environment. While consensus has been reached by the majority of globally focused management education institutions that sustainability 1] must be incorporated into management education curricula, the relevant question is no longer why management education should change, but how?
