Re-Reading Education Policy and Practice in Small States

Issues of Size and Scale in the Emerging «Intelligent Society and Economy»

Series:

Tavis D. Jules and Patrick Ressler

The volume is concerned with educational developments in small and microstates, a topic that has only relatively recently started to attract the attention it deserves. It is guided by the questions (i) if and how small and microstates deal with policy challenges to their education systems that are particularly important for their future development and (ii) whether there is something like typical «small / microstate behavior.» The volume seeks to contribute to a genuinely comparative approach to education in small and microstates. Moreover, widening conventional definitions of smallness, it aims to advance research in the field not only in a thematic but also in a theoretical perspective. Overall, the volume seeks to expand our understanding of small and microstates – and by implication of big states as well –, especially regarding what is general and what is particular about their behavior.

Le présent ouvrage fait le bilan de l’usage de la littérature dans l’enseignement-apprentissage de l’allemand au Burkina Faso. Il répond à la question fondamentale de recherche : A-t-on besoin de la littérature pour apprendre une langue étrangère ? Des investigations empiriques auprès des acteurs de l’enseignement de l’allemand au Burkina Faso sont suivies d'une réflexion théorique focalisée sur une revue critique de la littérature y relative. A partir de ces résultats empiriques et théoriques, l’auteur développe six thèses principales pour justifier la didactique de la littérature en cours d’allemand langue étrangère au Burkina Faso. Par ailleurs, l’auteur propose des démarches didactiques pour l’enseignement-apprentissage de deux morceaux de textes littéraires en classe de terminale A4 au Burkina Faso.

Teaching Students with Learning Disabilities at Beacon College is a collection of essays written by professors and learning specialists (educational support personnel) at Beacon College, an accredited four-year institution for students with learning disabilities, ADHD, and other learning differences. The purpose of this book is to help fill the massive gap in the literature on teaching students with learning disabilities at the college level. The attrition rate of students with learning disabilities at traditional colleges and universities is very high. With a 70% four-year graduation rate, Beacon College is well-positioned to be an instructional model for other institutions. The essays discuss institutional practices, alternative teaching strategies, and personal instructor experiences.

L’Éducation nouvelle entre science et militance

Débats et combats à travers la revue «Pour l’Ère Nouvelle» (1920–1940)

Series:

Béatrice Haenggeli-Jenni

Cet ouvrage étudie l’Éducation nouvelle dans ses dimensions scientifiques et militantes. Porté par des praticiens convaincus qu’une réforme de l’école pourra transformer le monde, le mouvement attire aussi des scientifiques persuadés que la science a un rôle à jouer dans la quête d’une harmonie entre les hommes. Tous se rejoignent dans la volonté de construire une éducation basée sur une connaissance scientifique de l’enfant : selon eux, la pédagogie ne doit plus être un art mais une science.

Ce livre s’intéresse à la relation qu’entretiennent ici la science et la militance : quelle est la part de l’une et l’autre dans les revendications de l’Éducation nouvelle ? Comment le discours scientifique se mêle-t-il au discours militant ? Qui sont les acteurs engagés dans le mouvement et comment concilient-ils ces deux facettes dans leur activité ?

Dans une démarche d’histoire sociale, cet ouvrage puise ses apports dans la lecture fine d’une revue emblématique du mouvement, organe de la Ligue internationale pour l’Éducation nouvelle. Il étudie les questions en débat telles que les méthodes d’enseignement, le rôle du maître, la place des savoirs scolaires ou la liberté en éducation. Ce livre attache une importance particulière aux acteurs engagés pour cette cause et s’intéresse à leurs profils, réseaux et activités aux niveaux local et international.

Christianity and the Secular Border Patrol

The Loss of Judeo-Christian Knowledge

Series:

Barry Kanpol and Mary Poplin

Christianity and the Secular Border Patrol: The Loss of Judeo-Christian Knowledge centrally looks at how secular universities have dominated academic knowledge on the one hand and have also been a part of bias against Christian academics on the other. Authors generally ask for borders of understanding and collegial dialogue to bridge gaps of knowledge that exist because of this bias. Theoretical analysis and narratives from the field describe how overcoming extreme theoretical positions may allow for productive knowledge construction and a more harmonious relationship within the culture wars of our times, especially in higher education.

Ignatius von Loyola und die Pädagogik der Jesuiten

Ein Modell für Schule und Persönlichkeitsbildung

Series:

Rüdiger Funiok and Harald Schöndorf SJ

Ignatius (ursprünglich Íñigo) de Loyola wurde 1491 im Baskenland geboren. Nach einem Bekehrungserlebnis 1521 studierte er in Paris Theologie und gründete 1540 mit sechs Gefährten die «Gesellschaft Jesu». Ignatius von Loyola entfaltet in seinen «Geistlichen Übungen» (Exerzitien) eine Vorgehensweise, die das Menschenbild und die Lehrmethoden der (Hoch-)Schulen des Jesuitenordens prägt. Bis zu seinem Tod 1556 wurden über 30 Jesuitenschulen gegründet, bis 1750 gab es bereits 670 Jesuiten-Kollegien. Die Artikel dieses Bandes schildern diese Entwicklung und informieren über Literatur, Medien und Adressen von Jesuitenschulen und -hochschulen.

E. San Juan, Jr.

Carlos Bulosan—Revolutionary Filipino Writer in the United States: A Critical Appraisal is an in-depth, critical evaluation of Bulosan's major works in the context of the sociopolitical changes that configured his sensibility during the Depression, the united-front mobilization prior to World War II, and the Cold War witch-hunting of the fifties. Unprecedented for its thorough historical-materialist analysis of the symbolic dynamics of the texts, this book uses original research into the Sanora Babb papers that have never before been linked to Bulosan. Sophisticated dialectical analysis of the complex contradictions in Bulosan’s life is combined with a politico-ethical reading of U.S.-Philippines relations. San Juan takes the unorthodox view that Bulosan’s career was not an immigrant success story but instead a subversive project of an organic intellectual of a colonized nation-in-the-making. Today, Bulosan is hailed as a revolutionary Filipino writer, unparalleled in the racialized, conflicted history of the Philippines as a colony/dependency of the United States. This book follows San Juan’s pioneering 1972 study Carlos Bulosan and the Imagination of the Class Struggle.

The PEERS program proposes international exchanges adapted to the context of teacher training institutions wishing to take advantage of internationalization in order to link training, research, and practice. PEERS is based on the completion of Research and Innovation (R&I) projects during the academic year, during which international groups of professors and students from teacher training partner institutions collaborate remotely as well as during two placements of one week. For the students, the PEERS program aims to develop competencies in distance collaboration with the help of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the management of intercultural groups, and the continuous improvement of their activities through reflective thinking and the spirit of research. For the professors the PEERS program aims to better link research and training, to reinforce their skills in the management of international research projects and to foster opportunities for international publications.

The aim of this collective book is to give an overview of the Issues, case studies and perspectives of the PEERS program. The first section entitled "Issues, Opportunities, and Challenges for the Internationalization of Teacher Training in a Globalized, Multicultural, and Connected World", focuses on the foundations and general features of PEERS projects, as well as the context of globalization in the intercultural and connected world in which it is situated.

The second section, "Case Studies and Lessons Learned from the PEERS Project in Southern Countries" constitutes a series of chapters presenting case studies on PEERS projects focused on innovation and cooperation in the developing world. The third section, "Results of Research-Oriented PEERS Projects," considers the results from PEERS projects that have enabled the implementation of theoretical and practical educational research, generally taking the form of small-case research studies or innovations in the design of teaching units. Finally, in the conclusion we propose to present the key points of the three sections that make up this book "Linking Research and Training in Internationalization of Teacher Education with the PEERS Program: Issues, Case Studies and Perspectives".
