According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, young people aged 18 to 25 are at a significant risk for acquiring and transmitting HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and other STIs (sexually transmitted infections). Primary developmental processes that place college students particularly at risk include the experience of intimacy, sexual desires and the centrality of the peer group. During these routine developmental processes, college students experiment with unprotected sex, multiple sex partners and alcohol and illicit drugs, all of which are contributing risk factors for HIV/STI infections.

Early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of HIV and other STIs is germane to promoting the sexual health of college students and reducing high HIV/STI infection rates among young people. This edited volume will provide innovative and cutting-edge approaches to prevention for college students and will have a major impact on advancing the interdisciplinary fields of higher education and public health. It will explore core ideas such as hooking up culture, sexual violence, LGBT and students of color, as well as HIV and STI prevention in community colleges, rural colleges and minority serving institutions."

Universities across the world strive to be engaged institutions whose purpose is to foster positive social change through teaching, research and community engagement. The integration of these roles may sometimes hinder authentic engagement. Community engagement research in South Africa: histories, methods, theories and practice proposes a transformative model for engagement, in which societal involvement is the driving force behind all activities of the university. This overarching focus serves to blur the divisions between the core higher education and training activities as research becomes more community-based and teaching prepares students to be agents to be informed by research through teaching and learning, and to be agents for positive social change in all spheres of life. This idea is explored throughout the book, with chapters written by renowned community engagement practitioners and scholars of various disciplines. Contributions map community engagement interventions in the intersections of fields such as education, the social sciences, psychology, health, planning, engineering and architecture. They share best practices and draw from theoretical scholarship and practical experience, innovative ways of conceptualising, establishing and "community experiencing" projects. Based on original research, contributors encourage thought of modelling the practical implementation of community engagement at universities.

Most people working within the higher education sector understand the importance of making e-learning accessible to students with disabilities, yet it is not always clear exactly how this should be accomplished. E-Learning and Disability in Higher Education evaluates current accessibility practice and critiques the extent to which 'best' practices can be confidently identified and disseminated. This second edition has been fully updated and includes a focus on research that seeks to give 'voice' to disabled students in a way that provides an indispensible insight into their relationship with technologies and the institutions in which they study. Examining the social, educational, and political background behind making online learning accessible in higher and further education, E-Learning and Disability in Higher Education considers the roles and perspectives of the key stake-holders involved in e-learning: lecturers, professors, instructional designers, learning technologists, student support services, staff developers, and senior managers and administrators.

"Adventures of a Dean: A Primer on Business School Management" examines the interpersonal, professional, and financial aspects of being a dean, and illustrates how politics continually impacts a dean's goals and strategies.
"Adventures of a Dean" is both autobiography and textbook, chronicling author Howard Frank's eleven years as dean of the Smith School, during which time he doubled its facilities, quadrupled its revenues, added over one hundred faculty members, and led the school to the top ten in the world in research.
Beginning with the university's search for a dean, the book moves on to detail all aspects of the actual work done by the dean. This starts with forming a plan to increase enrollment, and encompasses such critical tasks as dealing with accreditation, creating a financial model, improving teaching quality, and maintaining successful relationships with all parts of a campus. Readers will learn about major challenges facing a top-level university administrator, such as developing international programs, and minor ones, such as dealing with a campus catering monopoly. This inside view is both engaging and informative.
"Adventures of a Dean" is a candid discussion of the opportunities and the risks facing deans, as well as a lesson in business school financial planning and strategy

Clinical legal education (CLE) is a springboard for entry into legal practice, preparing students for the professional challenges they will face after completing their studies and embarking on their legal careers. In her eight years of conducting research on CLE in South African universities, the author has found that the most urgent needs are in the area of student assessment. Designing a curriculum with assessable content is therefore essential for clinicians who, in certifying students' capabilities, are the gatekeepers to practice. This book identifies curriculum requirements across a number of jurisdictions, and proposes a menu of assessment methods, which may enhance the choices of assessment methodologies available to South African university law clinics. It also covers the setting of parameters for assessment, grading, grade descriptors and moderation systems, and discusses different forms of tests, assignments, essay- and oral-examinations, as well as self- and peer-evaluation, peer editing, case portfolios, and trial advocacy skills. The book addresses challenges such as clinicians' heavy workloads and differing levels of experience in supervision and assessment. It discusses challenges students face and presents solutions enabling clinicians to help them depending on their individual experience and needs. Also discussed are the potential conflicts between the needs of students and those of the local community being served by the law clinic. Although the aim of this book is to find appropriate assessment methods for CLE, the effectiveness of an assessment programme can only be determined when measured against a curriculum. The proposed curriculum is therefore measured against the identified assessment criteria.

So, You Are Going to College?! (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): San Bolkan So, You Are Going to College?! (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
San Bolkan
R428 Discovery Miles 4 280 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

During his time as a professor, the author has learned that although most university students are smart and capable, many of them go about their educations in a fashion that does not lead to success. This is because knowing what it takes to do well in college is never learned in high school, and really, it is never explicitly taught in college either. There are simple formulas for doing well in school and this book was written to give readers some of the keys to academic excellence.
""So, You Are Going to College? " " (Second Edition) is a fun read, as the author's own research points to the notion that the more you like a class the more you: learn, are motivated to learn, are satisfied with your communication with your teacher, and participate in class. By reading this book, you will learn some of the expectations professors have of their students and you will learn some of the behaviors you need to perform if you want to do well in college.
This enjoyable, yet brief and to the point, book includes:
- A look at some of the myths students have about professors and about college in general.
- Discussion on the number one rule for success in life, being an adult.
- Some of the expectations professors have for their communication with students.
- How to listen effectively in class, a guide to help students learn more and daydream less.
- The formulas for doing well on exams and helping students become aware of their goals in college.

This collection of essays provides a timely analysis of the current state and potential future of higher education and its subsequent impact on society. The multinational and multidisciplinary contributors analyze the variety of professional, intellectual, social and political factors that govern our individual and collective behavior, and how these forces undermine society's traditional goals for higher education: critical and intellectual development, and civic engagement. These historical democratic-social values are coming to be replaced with those of production and consumption in service to the global economy. The competing and contradictory demands placed upon higher education are often at odds with the traditional notions of liberal education that persist as performative facade, an idealization of the academy existing primarily in the lore, rituals, and mission statements of most colleges and universities, but not always in the outcomes faculty are expected to produce.

This book brings a diverse group of scholars together to discuss how composition studies should evolve in the context of ongoing changes related to higher education. These changes include new shifts in student demographics, increasing demands for accountability in educational outcomes, continuing expectations that a university educational will lead to a good job, questions about the utility of composition, and more. Such commonly cited changes have been occurring for quite some time, creating the necessity for compositionists to continually re-evaluate their approaches to writing instruction. The editors believe that composition studies has entered an exciting period of change with opportunities to consider new places and purposes for writing instruction.

Crossing Boundaries and Building Learning Communities (Paperback): Crossing Boundaries and Building Learning Communities (Paperback)
R595 Discovery Miles 5 950 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book addresses the boundaries between teacher education scholarship and preparation for practice in a multicultural society. Teachers' voices as scholarly practitioners, capable of critiquing their profession, are brought to the forefront as key actors in the process of democratizing education. The author proposes connecting two research paradigms, critical ethnography and narrative inquiry, as tools for translating critical pedagogy into teacher education and K-12 practice.Chapter 1 examines the state of critical education and critical ethnography as a backdrop for understanding the void and need of critical ethnographies as leadership praxis in the field of education. It introduces the main thesis that narrative inquiry needs to be theoretically and practically built in the struggle for more democratic social relations both in schools as well as in teacher education. Chapter 2 presents a comprehensive literature review of critical theory in education and chapter 3 presents a history of critical ethnography and narrative inquiry in educational research. Chapter 4 serves as a transitional or border-crossing chapter between theory and practice. The remaining chapters focus on critical narrative ethnographic studies as examples of a kind of participatory action research. The final chapter continues to develop the concept of preservice teacher research development as integral to the process of becoming social agents of change.

Fostering Creativity - A Diagnostic Approach for Higher Education and Organizations (Paperback): A.J. Cropley, David Cropley Fostering Creativity - A Diagnostic Approach for Higher Education and Organizations (Paperback)

R786 Discovery Miles 7 860 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Innovation is universally recognized as key components of first world economies that is vital for continued prosperity. Innovation is driven by the generation of effective novelty - in other words, creativity. However, both in higher education and also in business and industry, insufficient effort is being made to encourage and develop creativity, with negative consequences for innovation. This is partly due to inadequate understanding of what creativity is and how it can be fostered. This book draws on complementary views of creativity and innovation - as a business process and as a social-psychological model - to create a more detailed and more highly differentiated model which is capable of serving as a practical foundation for diagnosing, analyzing, optimizing and fostering creativity and innovation in a variety of organizational settings. It is built around a large number of case studies and down-to-earth examples, and offers many concrete suggestions for fostering what the authors call 'functional' creativity.
