Susan Hrach
R656 R615 Discovery Miles 6 150 Save R41 (6%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

What happens to teaching when you consider the whole body (and not just "brains on sticks")? Starting from new research on the body--aptly summarized as "sitting is the new smoking"--Minding Bodies aims to help instructors improve their students' knowledge and skills through physical movement, attention to the spatial environment, and sensitivity to humans as more than "brains on sticks." It shifts the focus of adult learning from an exclusively mental effort toward an embodied, sensory-rich experience, offering new strategies to maximize the effectiveness of time spent learning together on campus as well as remotely. Minding Bodies draws from a wide range of body/mind research in cognitive psychology, kinesiology, and phenomenology to bring a holistic perspective to teaching and learning. The embodied learning approaches described by Susan Hrach are inclusive, low-tech, low-cost strategies that deepen the development of disciplinary knowledge and skills. Campus change-makers will also find recommendations for supporting a transformational mission through an attention to students' embodied learning experiences.

At which Oxford college does a trumpeter summon you to dinner? What does the appearance of a rose bowl signify? How would you use a grace cup as distinct from a sconce cup? The custom of dining in formal hall at Oxford and Cambridge dates back to the earliest days of college life. Before each dinner, according to ancient statutes, grace must be spoken in Latin, and although the text and nature of the grace for each college may have changed over the years, it is a tradition which remains current to this day. Following a historical introduction, the full Latin texts of the graces of the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge are given in this book, accompanied by a facing English translation. Special graces reserved for feast days are also included, along with an explanation of some of the traditions which accompany dining in college halls. From an exploration of the twelfth-century monastic origins of the texts to the creation of two-word graces in the nineteenth century and new texts for the modern age, this meticulous collection reveals how the tradition of the Latin grace has survived and evolved over the centuries and offers a rare glimpse inside the private halls of Oxbridge.

The Gender-Sensitive University - A Contradiction in Terms? (Paperback): Eileen Drew, Siobhan Canavan The Gender-Sensitive University - A Contradiction in Terms? (Paperback)
Eileen Drew, Siobhan Canavan
R924 Discovery Miles 9 240 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

The Gender-Sensitive University explores the prevailing forces that pose obstacles to driving a gender-sensitive university, which include the emergence of far-right movements that seek to subvert advances towards gender equality and managerialism that promotes creeping corporatism. This book demonstrates that awareness of gender equality and gender sensitivity are essential for pulling contemporary academia back from the brink. New forms of leadership are fundamental to reforming our institutions. The concept of a gender-sensitive university requires re-envisioning academia to meet these challenges, as does a different engagement of men and a shift towards fluidity in how gender is formulated and performed. Academia can only be truly gender sensitive if, learning from the past, it can avoid repeating the same mistakes and addressing existing and new biases. The book chapters analyse these challenges and advocate the possibilities to 'fix it forward' in all areas. Representing ten EU countries and multiple disciplines, contributors to this volume highlight the evidence of persistent gender inequalities in academia, while advocating a blueprint for addressing them. The book will be of interest to a global readership of students, academics, researchers, practitioners, academic and political leaders and policymakers who share an interest in what it takes to establish gender-sensitive universities.

Uncovering aspects of university culture which are often hidden or misunderstood, this book brings together international perspectives, showing the matches and mismatches between experience and expectation, as both staff and student face new academic cultures. Drawing on the stories of students and members of staff in the higher education sector as starting points for analysis, this book considers aspects such as the dynamics and pragmatics of university settings, from tutorial to lecture; the assignment and multiple text types from reflective logs to essays; different interpretations of grades, grading and feedback. Topics are explored with examples from critical incidents and narratives in international contexts - both where staff or students cross cultures and borders, and where they are functioning within the university culture with which they are most familiar. Ideal both for those new to learning and teaching in higher education, and those seeking to refresh their practice, this must-read book uses case studies and narratives to illustrate key challenges academics and students face. With consideration given to learning across cultures, the narratives and topics lead to enquiries which the reader can ask and research for themselves to find helpful answers to explain their own university experiences.

R938 Discovery Miles 9 380 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

International Student Mobility presents an autoethnographic study, which follows a group of non-English speaking international students from Taiwan during a period of study in Australia. The study examines the ways in which the students' sense of identity shifts over time, and why this happens. Hsieh engages Pierre Bourdieu's notions of capital, habitus and field to develop an understanding of complexity of identity movements and asks to what extent the students see themselves as culturally and linguistically 'international', both during their time abroad and upon their return home. Perfect for researchers and advanced students interested in international higher education, International Student Mobility is also an insightful read for those investigating the experiences of Chinese-speaking international students.
