A Filtered Life - Social Media on a College Campus (Hardcover): Nicole Taylor, Mimi Nichter A Filtered Life - Social Media on a College Campus (Hardcover)
Nicole Taylor, Mimi Nichter
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.

Richard Grimes, Vera Honuskova, Ulrich Stege
R2,853 Discovery Miles 28 530 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This highly topical book demonstrates the theoretical and practical importance of the study of migration law. It outlines approaches that may be taken in the design, delivery and monitoring of this study in law schools and universities to ensure an optimum level of learning. Drawing on examples of best practice from around the world, this book uses a theoretical framework and examples from real clients to simulations to help promote the learning and teaching of the law affecting migrants. It showcases contributions from over 30 academics and practitioners experienced in asylum and immigration law and helps to unpick how to teach the complex international laws and procedures relating to migration between different countries and regions. The various sections of the book explore educational best practice, what content can be covered, models for teaching and learning, strategies to deal with challenges and ways forward. The book will appeal to scholars, researchers and practitioners of migration and asylum law, those teaching migration law electives and involved in curriculum design, as well as students of international, common and civil law.

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

Shaping College Football - The Transformation of an American Sport, 1919-1930 (Hardcover, New): Raymond Schmidt Shaping College Football - The Transformation of an American Sport, 1919-1930 (Hardcover, New)
Raymond Schmidt
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."

Teaching Sexuality and Religion in Higher Education - Embodied Learning, Trauma Sensitive Pedagogy, and Perspective... Teaching Sexuality and Religion in Higher Education - Embodied Learning, Trauma Sensitive Pedagogy, and Perspective Transformation (Paperback)
Darryl W. Stephens, Kate Ott
R941 Discovery Miles 9 410 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This volume combines insights from secular sexuality education, trauma studies, and embodiment to explore effective strategies for teaching sexuality and religion in colleges, universities, and seminaries. Contributors to this volume address a variety of sexuality-related issues including reproductive rights, military prostitution, gender, fidelity, queerness, sexual trauma, and veiling from the perspective of multiple religious faiths. Christian, Jewish, and Muslim scholars present pedagogy and classroom strategies appropriate for secular and religious institutional contexts. By foregrounding a combination of "perspective transformation" and "embodied learning" as a means of increasing students' appreciation for the varied social, psychological, theological and cultural contexts in which attitudes to sexuality develop, the volume posits sexuality as a critical element of teaching about religion in higher education. This book will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, academics, and libraries in the fields of Religious Studies, Religious Education, Gender & Sexuality, Religion & Education, and Sociology of Religion.

Enhancing Learning through Formative Assessment and Feedback (Hardcover, 2nd edition): Alastair Irons, Sam Elkington Enhancing Learning through Formative Assessment and Feedback (Hardcover, 2nd edition)
Alastair Irons, Sam Elkington
R2,861 Discovery Miles 28 610 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Assessment is a critical aspect of higher education because it has a range of powerful impacts on what staff and students do and how universities operate. Underpinned by relevant theory and practical advice this fully updated new edition takes into account the changing expectation of students in the context of an increasingly complex and shifting higher education environment to promote the role of formative assessment and formative feedback and its impact on shaping the student learning experience. Presented through the lens of contemporary perspectives, empirical evidence, and case studies across a broad range of subject disciplines, this new edition aims to encourage teaching and support staff to focus on the promotion of student learning through designing and embedding high-impact formative assessment processes and activities. Key content covers: the theoretical and philosophical aspects of formative assessment and formative feedback; the learning environment in which students undertake their learning activities, helping teachers develop appropriate formative assessment and provide effective formative feedback; the impact of formative assessment and formative feedback activities have on learning, teaching, and assessment design, as well as on the academic workload of tutors; the contemporary issues and challenges currently driving research into formative assessment; the use of technology in formative assessment and how different tools and technologies allow for the provision of effective and efficient formative feedback; the benefits of understanding how students respond to formative assessment and formative feedback as an opportunity to review the effectiveness of the teaching and learning methods and techniques; the integral role of formative assessment and formative feedback plays in postgraduate research settings; and how innovations in formative assessment and feedback inform key developments in large-scale assessment change. Aimed at both experienced and early career practitioners in higher education, this text is ideal reading for educators who wish to see a movement away from a higher education system driven by summative assessment to one where a more holistic approach to education positions learning standards rather than measurement and grades as central to effective assessment and, crucially, to return to a focus on student learners.

Leonard M. Cantor, I.F. Roberts
R2,511 Discovery Miles 25 110 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1972, this second edition of Further Education in England and Wales was written to provide a comprehensive account of the character and extent of further education in England and Wales. The book critically analyses the major features of further education at the time of publication, and suggests ways in which it might profitably develop in the years ahead. It provides an important account of the post-war historical background to further education, and examines in detail topics such as the role of polytechnics and the work of the Council for National Academic Awards; the educational implications of the Industrial Training Act; developments in education for business and management; and, the changing pattern of education for art and design. The book also considers the training of teachers for further education, and further education in Wales.

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.

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.

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?

Development of Higher Education in Africa - Prospects and Challenges (Hardcover, New): Alexander W. Wiseman, C.C. Wolhuter Development of Higher Education in Africa - Prospects and Challenges (Hardcover, New)
Alexander W. Wiseman, C.C. Wolhuter
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.

Theory and Method in Higher Education Research contains contemporary contributions to international debates regarding the application and development of theory and methodology in researching higher education. Higher education research is a developing field internationally, which is attracting more and more researchers from a great variety of disciplinary backgrounds within and beyond higher education institutions. As such, it is an arena within which a wide range of theories, methods and methodologies is being applied. As an expanding multidisciplinary area of interest, we may also expect increased development of theory and method. This volume aims to offer a channel for discussion, critique and innovation. It should become essential reading for the growing numbers of researchers engaging with higher education across the globe

The Handbook of Critical Theoretical Research Methods in Education (Paperback): Cheryl E Matias The Handbook of Critical Theoretical Research Methods in Education (Paperback)
Cheryl E Matias
R1,705 Discovery Miles 17 050 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Handbook of Critical Theoretical Research Methods in Education approaches theory as a method for doing research, rather than as a background framework. Educational research often reduces theory to a framework used only to analyze empirically collected data. In this view theories are not considered methods, and studies that apply them as such are not given credence. This misunderstanding is primarily due to an empiricist stance of educational research, one that lacks understanding of how theories operate methodologically and presumes positivism is the only valid form of research. This limited perspective has serious consequences on essential academic activities: publication, tenure and promotion, grants, and academic awards. Expanding what constitutes methods in critical theoretical educational research, this edited book details 21 educationally just theories and demonstrates how theories are applied as method to various subfields in education. From critical race hermeneutics to Bakhtin's dialogism, each chapter explicates the ideological roots of said theory while teaching us how to apply the theory as method. This edited book is the first of its kind in educational research. To date, no other book details educationally just theories and clearly explicates how those theories can be applied as methods. With contributions from scholars in the fields of education and qualitative research worldwide, the book will appeal to researchers and graduate students.

R2,880 Discovery Miles 28 800 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) provide flexibility in education and have become widely used for the promotion of multimedia learning. This use coincides with mobile devices becoming prevalent, VR devices becoming more affordable, and the creation of user-friendly software that allows the development of AR/VR applications by non-experts. However, because the integration of AR and VR into education is a fairly new practice that is only in its initial stage, these processes and outcomes need to be improved. Designing, Deploying, and Evaluating Virtual and Augmented Reality in Education is an essential research book that presents current practices and procedures from different technology-implementation stages (design, deployment, and evaluation) to help educators use AR/VR applications in their own teaching practices. The book provides comprehensive information on AR and VR applications in different educational settings from various perspectives including but not limited to mobile learning, formal/informal learning, and integration strategies with practical and/or theoretical implications. Barriers and challenges to their implementation that are currently faced by educators are also addressed. This book is ideal for academicians, instructors, curriculum designers, policymakers, instructional designers, researchers, education professionals, practitioners, and students.

R1,072 Discovery Miles 10 720 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Winner of the Association of Fundraising Professionals 2014 Skystone Partners Research Prize in Philanthropy and Fundraising Traditionally, institutions have relied on wealthy White men to reach their fundraising goals. But as state investment in public higher education lessens and institutions look to philanthropy to move from excellence to eminence, advancement officers continually need to engage all populations, including many that have historically been excluded from fundraising strategies. Based on theory, research, and past practice, Expanding the Donor Base in Higher Education explores how colleges and universities can build culturally sensitive fundraising and engagement strategies. This edited book presents emerging research on different communities that have not traditionally been approached for fundraising-including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) alumni, African Americans, Latinos, graduate students, young alumni, women, and faculty donors. Chapters discuss and analyze successful programs and provide practical suggestions and strategies to create and implement fundraising programs that engage these new donor populations. Expanding the Donor Base in Higher Education is an essential resource for any institution looking to expand their pool of donors and cultivate a more philanthropic mindset among alumni and students.

Hacking the Academy - New Approaches to Scholarship and Teaching (Paperback, New): Dan Cohen, Joseph Thomas Scheinfeldt Hacking the Academy - New Approaches to Scholarship and Teaching (Paperback, New)
Dan Cohen, Joseph Thomas Scheinfeldt
R719 Discovery Miles 7 190 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

On May 21, 2010, Daniel J. Cohen and Tom Scheinfeldt posted the following provocative questions online:

"Can an algorithm edit a journal? Can a library exist without books? Can students build and manage their own learning management platforms? Can a conference be held without a program? Can Twitter replace a scholarly society?"

As recently as the mid-2000s, questions like these would have been unthinkable. But today serious scholars are asking whether the institutions of the academy as they have existed for decades, even centuries, aren't becoming obsolete. Every aspect of scholarly infrastructure is being questioned, and even more importantly, being hacked. Sympathetic scholars of traditionally disparate disciplines are canceling their association memberships and building their own networks on Facebook and Twitter. Journals are being compiled automatically from self-published blog posts. Newly minted PhDs are forgoing the tenure track for alternative academic careers that blur the lines between research, teaching, and service. Graduate students are looking beyond the categories of the traditional CV and building expansive professional identities and popular followings through social media. Educational technologists are "punking" established technology vendors by rolling out their own open source infrastructure.

Here, in "Hacking the Academy," Daniel J. Cohen and Tom Scheinfeldt have gathered a sampling of the answers to their initial questions from scores of engaged academics who care deeply about higher education. These are the responses from a wide array of scholars, presenting their thoughts and approaches with a vibrant intensity, as they explore and contribute to ongoing efforts to rebuild scholarly infrastructure for a new millennium.
