Teacher education in higher education has been of great interest as a research area in recent years. The discussion focuses on topics such as tertiary pedagogies, professional development, instructional innovative practices as well as technology and instruction.

Following these topics, the contributors of this collected volume deal with English as a medium of instruction (EMI) and Content and Language Integrated Language (CLIL). They examine the professional development of lecturers and discuss further topics such as English for academic purposes (EAP), English for special purposes (ESP) and English for vocational purposes (EOP). Finally, they explore the use of technology as an instructional tool. This book is designed as a resource that enriches the knowledge of the teachers and aims to empower them to maintain, develop and increase students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills so that teachers can provide better classroom experiences for their students.

Community College Leadership and Management

Reframing Institutional Practices for Student Success


Carlos Nevarez and J. Luke Wood

Community College Leadership and Management places emphasis on reframing college practices in order to advance student success. This calls for leaders to be well versed on promising strategies which have illustrated evidence in advancing academic success. Such practices include intrusive academic advising, exit interviews with dropouts and graduates, and the use of technology to supplement face-to-face academic counselor advising. These leaders are aware of and welcome the challenges and opportunities a changing student population presents to community colleges. The authors critically analyze and call for a deconstruction of conventional practices and the construction of new approaches to understand how student success is envisioned. For example, a redefinition of what constitutes student success is advanced. A redefinition of student success—as the attainment of an academic, vocational, career, or personal goal—is put forth. This broader perception, definition, and meaning of student success is not limited to or constrained by an accountability paradigm. It is driven by the need to capture a more complete picture of the trajectory of contemporary and traditional enrollees from increasingly diverse backgrounds: students whose goals do not fit solely and neatly into two traditionally dominant outcomes like graduation and transfer. It is the role of community college leaders to affirm, inculcate, and communicate this more nuanced definition, allowing it to guide the vision and mission, programs, policies, and practices of the institution. Carlos Nevarez and Luke J. Wood support their arguments through various models, frameworks, research findings, case studies, and presentation of self-reflective questions aimed at advancing reflective community college scholar-practitioners.

The Resistance, Persistence and Resilience of Black Families Raising Children with Autism presents nuanced perspectives in the form of counternarratives of what Black families who have children with autism experience at the intersection of race, class, disability and gender. It intentionally centers the expertise of Black parents, challenging what is considered knowledge, whose knowledge counts, and how knowledge can be co-generated for learning, sharing and advocacy. The book speaks directly to Black parents on the autism journey. To right systemic racial inequities and to cultivate culturally responsive practices, it is critical for practitioners and professionals to understand what is known about Black families’ experiences with autism in general and how these experiences differ because of our intersecting identities. University faculty and students in programs involving medicine, speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, nursing, political science, school psychology, teaching, special education and leadership can benefit from the wisdom offered by these parents. This text is perfect for several courses, including those in departments of anthropology, women and gender studies, health sciences, psychology, special education, teacher education and administrative leadership. In addition, given the uniquely Black perspective presented in the text, this text is relevant to other fields, including ethnic studies, cultural studies, urban studies and African American studies. It is relevant to individuals who wish to better understand how issues of race and intra-racial differences shape lived experiences with disability in American society.

Das Artefakt als materialisiertes Netzwerk Neuer Lernkulturen

Ein ikonographisch-ikonologisch-netzwerktheoretischer Zugang zu stillgestellten Praktiken Neuer Leistungskulturen im Portfolio

Andrea Bossen

Neue Lernkulturen bringen nicht nur neue Instrumente der Leistungsbeurteilung in den Unterricht, sondern auch spezifische Materialität(en). Dabei wird eine Revalorisierung der Artefakte in erziehungswissenschaftlicher Forschung immer noch eher randständig diskutiert. Die Autorin dieses Buches unternimmt einerseits eine methodologisch-methodische Suchbewegung, die das Potenzial und die Anschlussfähigkeit von Bruno Latours Akteur*in-Netzwerk-Theorie in Bezug auf (materielle) Artefakte in der Ethnographie auslotet. Andererseits geht sie der Frage nach, welche Neue Leistungskultur sich am Beispiel der Portfolioarbeit in Neuen Lernkulturen entfaltet – insbesondere dann, wenn die Beurteilungsgruppe heterogene Akteur*innen und Aktanten versammelt.

Erfolgsfaktor Quereinstieg

Auf dem Weg zur multiprofessionellen Schule

Edited by Christina Hansen and Walter Gusterer

Das Buch befasst sich mit dem Konzept der „professional learning communities". Damit ist die Vorstellung von „Lehrern als Lernern" verbunden, die in einer Schulgemeinschaft miteinander und voneinander lernen und ist besonders effektiv für schulische Personalentwicklung und das Lernen der Schüler*innen zugleich. Am Beispiel von Teach For Austria wird dabei ebenso theoretisch fundiert wie konkret aufgezeigt, was professionelle Zusammenarbeit bedeutet und wie sie konkret gestaltet werden kann. Damit wird durch die Arbeit von TFA ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Bildungsqualität in Österreich geleistet. Das Werk richtet sich an interessierte Pädagog*innen, Schulleiter*innen, Studierende, Expert*innen aus schulischen und außerschulischen Handlungsfeldern , Psycholog*innen und Therapeut*innen in Aus- und Weiterbildung, die neben vielen guten Beispielen pädagogisch- systematischer Zusammenarbeit auch eine professionstheoretische Fundierung des Ansatzes nicht scheuen.
