Abstract

Teaching in Blended Learning Environments provides a coherent framework in which to explore the transformative concept of blended learningÑthe organic integration of complementary face-to-face and online approaches and technologies. Built upon the theoretical framework of the Community of InquiryÑthe premise that higher education is both a collaborative and individually constructivist learning experienceÑthe authors present seven principles for harnessing the opportunities for teaching and learning available through technology. Focusing on teaching practices related to the design, facilitation, direction, and assessment of blended learning experiences, this text addresses the growing demand for improved teaching in higher education.

Abstract

The authors offer discourse-critical analyses on the gender-related theme of migration in public discourse. They present methodological considerations for researching educational processes in the migration society and open up possibilities for action against discrimination and for self-determination. This is based on the following questions: How can gender reflecters contribute to the development of educational concepts that are directed against national-cultural unambiguities and come closer to the realities of globalised societies with their manifold affiliations? And how do the structural conditions of migration affect gender relations and educational opportunities?

Abstract

Engineering design is a fundamental problem-solving model used by the discipline. Effective problem-solving requires the ability to find and incorporate quality information sources. To teach courses in this area effectively, educators need to understand the information needs of engineers and engineering students and their information gathering habits. This book provides essential guidance for engineering faculty and librarians wishing to better integrate information competencies into their curricular offerings. The treatment of the subject matter is pragmatic, accessible, and engaging. Rather than focusing on specific resources or interfaces, the book adopts a process-driven approach that outlasts changing information technologies. After several chapters introducing the conceptual underpinnings of the book, a sequence of contributions go into detail about specific steps in the design process and the information needs for those steps.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage constitue la première histoire d'ensemble de l'enseignement secondaire au XIXe siècle. Il s’agit d’un magnifique outil de travail qui s’est attaché à retrouver la réalité des établissements en exploitant les rapports envoyés au ministère et les statistiques exceptionnellement riches du XIXe siècle. Ils permettent d’apprécier les effectifs d’élèves dans leur diversité de classe et de statut comme le fonctionnement pédagogique des « maisons ». L’histoire retracée s’articule autour d...

Abstract

The Graduate Program in Sustainability Science under the Department of Urban Engineering of The University of Tokyo has been running an environmental leadership education program at the graduate student level since 2007 called the Asian Program for Incubation of Environmental Leaders (APIEL). This book describes the University’s experiences in establishing and organizing that program and provides some lessons learned for those who are considering starting environmental leadership education programs. APIEL’s curriculum includes the classroom topic “Environmental Challenges and Leadership in Asia.” As well, the APIEL program has field units to provide experience in problem solving, decision making, and participation, taking into consideration ecological, political, economic, social, aesthetic, and ethical aspects. Another characteristic feature of the program is that it promotes changes in attitudes and behavior that will help to solve existing environmental problems and to avoid a generation of new ones. Over the four years of study, efforts have been made to bond leadership with field-oriented exercises such as: 1) The Intensive Program on Sustainability; 2) an integral approach focused on sustainable integrated watershed management of arid regions; 3) sustainable development of programs in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand for qualifying students with problem-solving processes to combat issues such as flooding, lack of proper urban environmental infrastructure, and health risks; and 4) the Greater Pearl River Delta program with multicultural diversity to bring about sustainable urban development for a green city. All of those are described in the book. Last but not least, APIEL’s resonance throughout international networks and alumni are introduced.

Abstract

Prominente Beispiele des "Aufbegehrens" gegenüber politischen Entscheidungen, wie etwa jüngst "Stuttgart 21", haben die Frage politischer Partizipation verstärkt in die öffentliche Diskussion gerückt. Seitens der Politiker wird eine stärkere Beteiligung der Bevölkerung meist mit der Begründung mangelnder politischer Kompetenz abgelehnt. Jana Trumann geht dieser Unterstellung nach, indem sie politische Lern-Handlungspraxen am Beispiel von Bürgerinitiativen aufgreift und aus subjektwissenschaftlicher Perspektive lerntheoretisch analysiert. Das Buch stellt einen vielschichtigen politischen Lern-Handlungsraum vor, der wichtige Aspekte für die bildungs- und politikwissenschaftliche Diskussion liefert.

Abstract

Knowledge, democracy and action is based on a three-year international comparative study undertaken by the Global Alliance on Community Based Research and supported by the UNESCO Chair in Community Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education. It provides evidence from twenty case studies around the world on the power and potential of community and higher education based scholars and activists working together in the co-creation of transformative knowledge. The book draws on the experience and insights of thirty-seven scholars and practitioners from the Global South and North. Opening with a theoretical overview of knowledge, democracy and action, the book is followed by analytical chapters providing lessons learned and capacity building in the north and the south, on the theory and practice of community university research partnerships, models of evaluation, approaches to measuring the impact and an agenda for future research and policy recommendations.

Abstract

Whose History? aims to illustrate how historical novels and their related genres may be used as an engaging teacher/learning strategy for student teachers in pre-service teacher education courses. It does not argue all teaching of History curriculum in pre-service units should be based on the use of historical novels as a stimulus, nor does it argue for a particular percentage of the use of historical novels in such courses. It simply seeks to argue the case for this particular approach, leaving the extent of the use of historical novels used in History curriculum units to the professional expertise of the lecturers responsible for the units.

Abstract

Inequality in Latin America is very large and there is a great desire for greater social justice, inclusion and equal opportunities. In order to contribute to the understanding of such developments, this volume addresses the problem of economic inequality in Paraguay, Honduras and Chile. The studies show from different angles how an adverse family background has permanent negative effects on employment, wages and labour mobility, particularly in the presence of structural economic changes. In general, this book is a contribution to understand why inequality is highly persistent in Latin America, a place where low levels of income, poverty and vulnerability are likely to be passed on to the next generation.

Abstract

An approach to performance-based assessments that embeds assessments in digital games in order to measure how students are progressing toward targeted goals.To succeed in today's interconnected and complex world, workers need to be able to think systemically, creatively, and critically. Equipping K-16 students with these twenty-first-century competencies requires new thinking not only about what should be taught in school but also about how to develop valid assessments to measure and support these competencies. In Stealth Assessment, Valerie Shute and Matthew Ventura investigate an approach that embeds performance-based assessments in digital games. They argue that using well-designed games as vehicles to assess and support learning will help combat students' growing disengagement from school, provide dynamic and ongoing measures of learning processes and outcomes, and offer students opportunities to apply such complex competencies as creativity, problem solving, persistence, and collaboration. Embedding assessments within games provides a way to monitor players' progress toward targeted competencies and to use that information to support learning.Shute and Ventura discuss problems with such traditional assessment methods as multiple-choice questions, review evidence relating to digital games and learning, and illustrate the stealth-assessment approach with a set of assessments they are developing and embedding in the digital game Newton's Playground. These stealth assessments are intended to measure levels of creativity, persistence, and conceptual understanding of Newtonian physics during game play. Finally, they consider future research directions related to stealth assessment in education.
