The chapters of this volume reflect ongoing research in the field of adult education and learning in and with communities. At the same time the work of the authors presented here offers a very vital reflection of the work of the ESREA research network Between Local and Global—Adult Learning and Communities. The chapters showcase the broad range of professional practice, the variety in both methodology and theoretical background, as well as the impressive scope of field research experience the authors bring to bear in their papers.

Abstract

Sinds de Middeleeuwen heeft de universiteit vele veranderingen succesvol doorstaan. Maar het hele landschap van het hoger onderwijs is de afgelopen decennia zo snel en ingrijpend in beweging gekomen – onder andere met de opkomst van online learning, MOOC’s en rankings – dat de uitgangspunten van de universiteit nu opnieuw doordacht moeten worden.

Als rector magnificus van de Universiteit Utrecht heeft Bert van der Zwaan met tal van collega’s in Azië, Europa en Noord-Amerika gesproken over de ontwikkelingen binnen de stelsels van hoger onderwijs in hun land. Op basis van die gesprekken exploreert hij de toekomst van het hoger onderwijs, met als kernvraag: haalt de universiteit 2040?

Abstract

*THIS BOOK WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE AS OPEN ACCESS BOOK* This book is a valuable resource for policymakers and practitioners as it brings insights mainly from developing countries where relatively less research activity takes place. It is also a valuable resource for courses in mathematics education in the teacher education colleges, and departments of education in the sub-Saharan Africa region. In the increasingly global and technological world mathematics is seen as a significant gatekeeper of opportunities for social and economic advancement and mobility. Hence, countries and development agencies in the broader sub-Saharan Africa region are looking towards increasing access to relevant and high-quality secondary education as a lever towards economic development. Policy makers and other key decision makers in education look towards improvement in mathematics teaching and learning as a key focus in education reform. In the East Africa region also a number of initiatives have been taken at the national level in the respective countries to improve the quality of mathematics education. This book provides an in-depth comparative analysis of the developments and issues in mathematics education in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda, and advances our understanding of the state of secondary mathematics education in East Africa.

Abstract

Cultivating Racial and Linguistic Diversity in Literacy Teacher Education examines how English and literacy teacher education—a space dominated by White, English-monolingual, middle class perspectives—shapes the experiences of preservice teachers of color and their construction of a teacher identity. Significant and timely, this book focuses attention on the unique needs and perspectives of racially and linguistically diverse preservice teachers in the field of literacy and English education and offers ways to improve teacher training to better meet the needs of preservice teachers from all racial, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds. These changes have the potential to diversify the teacher force and cultivate teachers who bring rich racial, cultural, and linguistic histories to the field of teaching.

Abstract

This cross section study shows that school-intern further teacher training does not contribute to the achievement of objectives in the area of school development in Swiss vocational schools as it is intended by educational politics. Furthermore, it reveals that the questioned teachers do not think that school-intern further teacher training and school development influence their occupational situation in terms of lessons, occupational abilities and workday at all. Also most of them do not want any support service to implement such contents in their lessons. In consideration of these facts the lastingness and efficiency of both concepts are higly doubtful. The reasons for this outcome are diverse as this study shows. At first most examined vocational schools do not have a systematical concept of school-intern further teacher training and do not arrange their school development activities according to their superior programme. Therefore a connection between the field of school-intern further teacher training and school developement is not seen by the teachers and most of the experts. Above that both fields are in the area of responsibility of the school administration and do not involve the teaching staff. The objectives and superior programme of school development as well as measures of completed school development projects are not passed on to the teaching staff. In sum one can say that the desired development projects do not reach the teaching staff. Which is why they do not achieve the necessary reliability in order to develop the lessons of the teachers in a continuous improvement process any further.

Abstract

Educational systems worldwide are facing an enormous shift as a result of sociocultural, political, economic, and technological changes. The technologies and practices that have developed over the last decade have been heralded as opportunities to transform both online and traditional education systems. While proponents of these new ideas often postulate that they have the potential to address the educational problems facing both students and institutions and that they could provide an opportunity to rethink the ways that education is organized and enacted, there is little evidence of emerging technologies and practices in use in online education. Because researchers and practitioners interested in these possibilities often reside in various disciplines and academic departments the sharing and dissemination of their work across often rigid boundaries is a formidable task.Contributors to Emergence and Innovation in Digital Learning include individuals who are shaping the future of online learning with their innovative applications and investigations on the impact of issues such as openness, analytics, MOOCs, and social media. Building on work first published in Emerging Technologies in Distance Education, the contributors to this collection harness the dispersed knowledge in online education to provide a one-stop locale for work on emergent approaches in the field. Their conclusions will influence the adoption and success of these approaches to education and will enable researchers and practitioners to conceptualize, critique, and enhance their understanding of the foundations and applications of new technologies.
