Abstract

Racism as a historically grown power relation varies in its complex configurations, depending on social-political as well as local-historical contexts. This study examines how students deal with racism, with a particular focus on the contexts and institutions of academia. Due to the adaptive potential of current forms of racism, paradox spheres (of negotiation) open up to those affected by it: On the one hand, as academics, they are included, however, in a limited way, while on the other hand they remain excluded due to their ongoing experiences of being othered. The analyses show that the social and institutional handling of racism and experiences of racism are mostly tabooed or de-thematized. These structural circumstances fundamentally affect the students’ handling of racism.

Abstract

Serious illness prevents many students from attending school on a regular basis and can lead to long-term absence from the classroom. The consequent isolation impedes socialization and educational exchange between homebound students and their schoolmates, as well as interaction with their teachers. Moreover, these students face serious difficulties when they eventually manage to return to school. All these factors slow down homebound students’ learning progress and weaken their sense of belonging to their peer group. In response to these issues, Italy’s Ministry of Education (MIUR), National Research Council (CNR), and the TIM Foundation set up a project in 2013 named TRIS (Networked Technologies and Socio-educational Inclusion). The main aim of the project is to develop a flexible and scalable intervention model for integrating homebound leaners. This is based on active and engaging learning approaches and is designed for application to a wide variety of long–term absence situations. The main pillar of the project is the so-called “Inclusive Hybrid Classroom”, a special blending of physical and digital learning spaces. By facilitating direct engagement in class activities, irrespective of the students’ actual location, this kind of classroom heightens the sense for everyone that the homebound student is actively present in the classroom.&#xD;

Abstract

Con la Restauración Borbónica quedaba consolidado el sistema político que iba a marcar las siguientes décadas de la historia española. Lo conocemos como el Estado liberal, y abarcaba todas las esferas de la sociedad, entre ellas la educación superior. Se completaba la creación de una universidad liberal acorde al nuevo modelo, en la que habitaba un nuevo tipo estudiantil, un estudiante liberal. Queremos saber quién integraba este grupo, cuál era su origen y composición y cómo evolucionó. Nos interesa ver cómo afrontaba sus años académicos, en los que se relacionaba con los espacios físicos, la legislación o el profesorado de esta nueva universidad. Aspiramos a entender cómo vivía el día a día de su condición estudiantil, así dentro de las facultades como en la ciudad que les acogía, y a acercarnos a su mentalidad a través de las manifestaciones que como corporación realizaba. Nos centramos para ello en una universidad intermedia, la de Valencia, lo bastante reducida como para ser abarcable, pero suficientemente importante como para ser en gran medida representativa de la generalidad. En suma, se trata de dibujar el nuevo tipo estudiantil, con sus cambios y sus permanencias, conectado con el sistema liberal del que era a la vez resultado y miembro, entre los años que separaron los golpes de Estado de 1875 y de 1936.

Abstract

The main objective of this Research Topic is to determine the conditions that place students at risk of school failure, identifying student and context variables.In spite of the fact that there is currently little doubt about how one learns and how to teach, in some countries of the “developed world,” there is still there is a high rate of school failure. Although the term “school failure” is a very complex construct, insofar as its causes, consequences, and development, from the field of educational psychology, the construct “student engagement” has recently gained special interest in an attempt to deal with the serious problem of school failure. School engagement builds on the anatomy of the students’ involvement in school and describes their feelings, behaviors, and thoughts about their school experiences. So, engagement is an important component of students’ school experience, with a close relationship to achievement and school failure. Children who self-set academic goals, attend school regularly and on time, behave well in class, complete their homework, and study at home are likely to interact adequately with the school social and physical environments and perform well in school. In contrast, children who miss school are more likely to display disruptive behaviors in class, miss homework frequently, exhibit violent behaviors on the playground, fail subjects, be retained and, if the behaviors persist, quit school. Moreover, engagement should also be considered as an important school outcome, eliciting more or less supportive reactions from educators. For example, children who display school-engaged behaviors are likely to receive motivational and instructional support from their teachers. The opposite may also be true. But what makes student engage more or less? The relevant literature indicates that personal variables (e.g., sensory, motor, neurodevelopmental, cognitive, motivational, emotional, behavior problems, learning difficulties, addictions), social and/or cultural variables (e.g., negative family conditions, child abuse, cultural deprivation, ethnic conditions, immigration), or school variables (e.g., coexistence at school, bullying, cyberbullying) may concurrently hinder engagement, preventing the student from acquiring the learnings in the same conditions as the rest of the classmates.

Abstract

With the "opening of universities" to "non-traditional students", education policy demands for far-reaching reforms are addressed to German universities. How do universities meet these demands and what curricular-didactical considerations result from them? The authors take up this question as a productive moment in development-oriented action based on didactics of higher education and explore the potential - both for changes and for stabilisations in the area of higher education teaching - in an exemplary manner. Against the background of the framework conditions of a university of applied sciences, they discuss the possibilities of a target group-specific, curricular-didactic further development of part-time, social-scientifically oriented study programmes and present further reflections.

Abstract

"Micro-progettazione" ("micro-planning") are the processes carried out by the teacher to prepare the day after work session. Three models are analyzed and compared in the book: Propit, EAS and Flipped Classroom.
