Abstract

This&nbsp;book offers a lived defense of liberal&nbsp;education. How does a college professor, on a daily basis, help students&nbsp;feel the value of liberal education and get the most from that education? We answer&nbsp;this question, as professors, each day in the classroom.&nbsp;John William Miller, a philosophy professor at Williams College from 1924-1960 and someone noted for his exceptional teaching, developed one form that this lived defense can take. Though Miller published very&nbsp;little while he was alive, the archives at Williams College hold unpublished notes and essays of this master teacher. In this book, Jeff Frank offers an extended commentary on one of these unpublished essays where Miller&nbsp;develops his thinking on liberal education. Frank&nbsp;develops the idea that&nbsp;presence&nbsp;is central to liberal education and offers&nbsp;suggestions for how professors can become an educative presence for students.&nbsp;The&nbsp;goal of this book is an invitation to other professors who value&nbsp;liberal education to think with Miller about how to develop their own lived defense of&nbsp;liberal education, each day, in their own classrooms. The tone of the book is meant to&nbsp;be invitational, at times even conversational, and the book concludes with some&nbsp;direct suggestions for how professors can live their own defense of liberal education.

Abstract

En este trabajo se presentan los resultados de una investigación desarrollada en la Universidad Católica Luis Amigó, con el propósito de diseñar un modelo de consultorio virtual de matemáticas como estrategia de apoyo en el aprendizaje autónomo de los estudiantes del Departamento de Ciencias Básicas de esta Institución. El modelo se plantea como una reflexión en torno a los aspectos que deben ser considerados para mediar la relación entre el docente, el estudiante y el conocimiento, de modo que el aprendizaje del alumno no se circunscriba únicamente al aula de clase y la presencia física del profesor, sino que trascienda a otros espacios de formación mediados por las TIC. Este modelo surge como una propuesta de mediación tecnológica que permitirá apoyar y fortalecer los procesos de docencia que se llevan a cabo en el Departamento de Ciencias Básicas, y que deben estar orientados hacia el logro del objetivo misional de la Universidad de formar integralmente a la comunidad universitaria para el ejercicio de la autonomía intelectual, moral y social.

The impact of social media is evaluated critically, with an eye both to the benefits and the problems of using these new forms of digital communication.This is the first volume to give such detailed attention to this area of high interest. Its innovative approach extends to its creation, with contributors found via their presence on Twitter. The short and impactful chapters are accessible while retaining an academic focus through their application of relevant learning theory and educational context.Social Media and Higher Education is essential reading for any professional working in higher education, including lecturers teaching education courses.

Abstract

"All the tips, ideas and advice given to, and requested by, MA students in Media and Communications, are brought together in an easy-to-use accessible guide to help students study most effectively. Based upon many years of teaching study skills and hundreds of lecture slides and handouts this introduction covers a range of general and generic skills that the author relates specifically towards media and communications studies. As well as the mechanics of writing and presentations, the book also shows how students can work on and engage with the critical and contemplative elements of their degrees whilst retaining motivation and refining timekeeping skills. Of course the nuts and bolts of reading, writing, listening, seminars and the dreaded dissertation and essays are covered too. In addition advice on referencing, citation and academic style is offered for those with concerns over English grammar and expression. Aimed primarily at postgraduate students, there is significant crossover with undergraduate work, so this book will also prove of use to upper level undergraduate readers whether using English as a first or second language."

Abstract

"The book discusses various challenges and solutions related to the coordination of health and welfare services. Coordination is central to creating integrated services for users with complex needs. In order to understand the challenges and opportunities associated with creating such services, one needs knowledge related to organizations and the organizational context. The book's chapters takes on an organizational perspective where patterns and explanations are sought in formal and informal structures, processes and culture. The users’ need for services often cross established boundaries, both organizational and professional. The authors highlight the possibilities and limitations of some selected solutions that will help to cut across or break down such boundaries. Examples of such solutions are user involvement, interdisciplinary collaboration, team organizations, coordinators, standardization and patient pathways, digitization and decision-making tools for employees who work in the services. One chapter summarizes three different theoretical research approaches for analyzing coordination and collaboration. The target group is researchers, university and college employees and students of the health and welfare sector. The book also will be of interest for user organizations as well as administrative and professional decision-makers in public and private businesses."

Abstract

"Many educators can recite the faults of their schools or universities, but far fewer can recognize and develop existing strengths to benefit a wider audience. Sukhwant Jhaj has crafted a refreshing new look at how imaginative leadership and a shift in perspective can propel institutions to reach at-risk or underrepresented members of their communities. Delivering on the Promise of Democracy pulls back the curtain on seven high-performing universities to reveal which daily decisions, including listening to the community, embracing conflict, and implementing effective strategies through routine, guide administrators in achieving exceptional results. Through in-depth interviews that offer a close look at these seven universities, Jhaj traces a new trajectory for higher education: a call to question a university's effectiveness through its accessibility to the community it serves.Jhaj's book will inspire anybody interested in widening access to education with its call to renew their institution's mission through powerful and effective leadership.

Abstract

Knowledge of word meanings is critical to success in reading. A reader cannot fully understand a text in which the meaning to a significant number of words is unknown. Vocabulary knowledge has long been correlated with proficiency in reading. Yet, national surveys of student vocabulary knowledge have demonstrated that student growth in vocabulary has been stagnant at best. This volume offers new insights into vocabulary knowledge and vocabulary teaching. Articles range from a presentation of theories of vocabulary that guide instruction to innovative methods and approaches for teaching vocabulary. Special emphasis is placed on teaching academic and disciplinary vocabulary that is critical to success in content area learning. Our hope for this volume is that it may spark a renewed interest in research into vocabulary and vocabulary instruction and move toward making vocabulary instruction an even more integral part of all literacy and disciplinary instruction.

Abstract

The focus of this Special Issue is aimed at enhancing the discussion of Engineering Education, particularly related to technological and professional learning. In the 21st century, students face a challenging demand: they are expected to have the best scientific expertise, but also highly developed social skills and qualities like teamwork, creativity, communication, or leadership. Even though students and teachers are becoming more aware of this necessity, there is still a gap between academic life and the professional world. In this Special Edition Book, the reader can find works tackling interesting topics such as educational resources addressing students’ development of competencies, the importance of final year projects linked to professional environments, and multicultural or interdisciplinary challenges.
