This book traces the historical background of liberal arts education from west to east, expounds its implication and fundamental goal of universities, and introduces its application in Western and Chinese universities, particularly its experimentation at University of Nottingham Ningbo China. It takes the University of Nottingham Ningbo China as an example to introduce readers to the achievements and shortcomings of British education in the process of implementing liberal arts education. The author summarises the five elements of liberal arts education: "Bo": integration of arts and sciences, cross-discipline, seeking in-depth knowledge on the basis of extensive learning, understanding the new and gaining a wide knowledge of the old; "Ya":  Human beings first, professionals second; being committed to student-centred idea, prioritizing education among all work; encouraging questioning; and a very abundant organized extra-curriculum classes. This book will appeal to anyone who is interested in liberal arts education and the comparison between Western and Chinese education. It advocates that in order to meet the needs of all aspects of society, the structure of China’s education must be diversified for the realization of the China dream. This book will appeal to teachers and students, educators, and readers interested in education.

Die Didaktik der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik steht historisch, berufswissenschaftlich und ordnungspolitisch in einem Spannungsverhältnis. Eine auch nur in Ansätzen geschlossene Theoriebildung zu einer Didaktik der Informationstechnik liegt nicht vor. Ausgehend von diesem Desiderat soll mit dieser Veröffentlichung eine erste Lücke geschlossen werden. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, Gegenstandsbereiche vorzustellen, die für eine Theoriebildung einer Didaktik der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik von Bedeutung sind. Dazu sind Beiträge eingeholt worden, die eine theoretische Einordnung auf verschiedenen Analyseebenen ermöglichen. Band 1 „Theoriebildung" schafft somit ein erstes Fundament, das im Weiteren ausgebaut werden wird. Ziel ist es, der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik und deren Didaktik ein eigenständiges Profil zu geben, damit sie sich gegenüber dem Status quo emanzipieren kann.

La educación infantil de calidad se erige en la base de la sociedad del siglo XXI, cuyo signo de identidad más evidente es el cambio incesante. El lugar que ocupan las lenguas y la cultura en cualquier paradigma educativo es, sin duda, prevalente, y la ciencia concluye que el constructo lingüístico constituye el núcleo de la esencia humana. La lengua nos ofrece la identidad que nos diferencia del resto de las especies del planeta y la cultura va inextricablemente unida a ella, dotándola de complejos significados y posibilitando la transmisión de valores, creencias, actitudes y conductas de una comunidad.

El lector encontrará en este volumen un nuevo enfoque en educación bilingüe para la infancia, que aúna un sólido bagaje teórico (alojado en el Bloque I de esta obra). El enfoque PETaL (Play, Education, Toys and Languages) se caracteriza por su flexibilidad para adaptarse a distintos entornos culturales, porque solo así cobra sentido. Su objetivo es educar al niño de este siglo para que sea capaz de desarrollarse en (y promover) una sociedad diversa, plural y cambiante.

Pädagogik angesichts von Vulnerabilität und Exklusion

Bummeln durch die Landschaft der Randständigkeit

Series:

Edited by Louis Henri Seukwa and Uta Wagner

Die Ränder der Gesellschaft sind diffus und bewohnt. Randständigkeit umschreibt dabei den Zustand des oft vulnerablen und exkludierten Lebens, abseits bürgerlicher Milieus, losgelöst von monetärer Sicherheit und weitgehend entkoppelt von gesellschaftlichen Institutionen. Die verschiedenen Areale der Ränder sind gekennzeichnet durch Deprivationen, gesellschaftliche Stigmatisierung, Diskriminierung und Ausgrenzung, die alle die Pädagogik herausfordern. Die in diesem Buch versammelten Beiträge explorieren und analysieren die Vielfalt der Lebenslagen der Bewohner*innen und der verschiedenen Areale. Sie behandeln Fragen zur Konstitution dieser Areale, zur Annäherung an diese und unterbreiten eine Vielzahl an Vorschlägen unterschiedlichen Ausmaßes, wie die Pädagogik damit umgehen kann.

Las tecnologías educativas y, concretamente, el uso de las Tecnologías para el Aprendizaje y el Conocimiento (TAC) son aliadas magníficas para la educación bilingüe. Sin embargo, hasta la fecha son limitados los estudios que realmente estudien el potencial de las TAC de manera específica para contextos de educación bilingüe.

Este volumen, partiendo de estos conceptos, aborda aspectos clave como el diseño y la creación de materiales didácticos digitales o la importancia de las metodologías activas que tienen al alumnado como motor de los procesos de enseñanza-aprendizaje (incluyendo flipped learning o visual thinking, entre otras). El libro se cierra estudiando de manera específica la accesibilidad y la atención a la diversidad en educación bilingüe mediante el uso de la tecnología.

In banking education where the focus of curriculum is producing legitimate knowledge to maintain the sociocultural arrangements, the subjectivity of students and teachers is simply taken for granted. Once credentialized, students can find the source of unease within as public education—centered on conformity and competition—has overlooked their individuality. To contribute to their self-understanding and self-love, self-education starts from reconstructing student and teacher educational experiences. Once students and teachers reflect on their educational experience using autobiographical writing, they can reconstruct their understanding of their self and their education. Using emancipatory and transformative writing to liberate self through autobiographical method of Currere, this book takes a psychoanalytical and hermeneutic journey into student and teacher inner world. Once false self gets shattered following the synthetic phase of the method, students and teachers can reconnect to their true self disguised by non-ego—curriculum. As the source of aesthetic creation and inspiration, true self will connect students and teachers to their deeper layers of self-understanding and self-value using which they can recreate their lifeworlds and reconstruct their social and political spheres. Using hermeneutic dialogue following their rebirth, students and teachers will transfer their transformative and liberating understanding of lifeworld to their circumstances to reconstruct education.

The Expanding Universe of Writing Studies

Higher Education Writing Research

Series:

Edited by Kelly Blewett, Tiane Donahue and Cynthia Monroe

This edited collection arrives at a crucial moment in the evolution of Writing Studies research. It brings together well-known and emerging scholars in the field of Writing Studies, broadly defined, to explore the range of research methods and methodologies, the types of research questions asked, and the types of data in play in research about higher education writing in the 21st century. Its contribution is unique in the current landscape—a collection of carefully detailed descriptions of the research methods that constitute the field today, after fifty years of development—as marked by the 50th anniversary of the 1966 Dartmouth Seminar. The chapters focus on writing and writers in higher education, foregrounding research questions, methods, and data, while defining the areas of research that constitute this interdisciplinary field and offering examples of studies that employ the methods in these areas. Initial chapters address broad questions: the state of the field today, with a special focus on the field’s methods and their (inter)disciplinary history. Contributions then cover domains such as sociological ethnography, cultural-historical activity theory, linguistics, decolonial translation, cognitive science, corpus linguistics in the study of writing in university first year and upper-level contexts, recurring features in writing across academic contexts, work from psychologists studying college writers’ neuroplasticity, and many other domains of writing research. The final chapter argues for the value of lifespan writing research as an emerging domain, while the conclusion presents a synthesis of the major themes of the collection from leading scholars in the field.

Changing people’s practice is difficult, shifting the culture of an organization even more so. This book is a description of how one education preparation program did both. This is the story of how they transformed their student teaching program, creating tools and structures that resulted in mentors and student teachers working together in new ways. At the heart of their model is an assessment tool—STAT, for short—used to track the growth and development of student teachers and guide conversations between the college supervisor, cooperating teacher and student teacher. Although this book describes Hope College’s new student teaching model it is really about change. This story takes the reader through the complex change process of one institution, examining the loosely coupled dynamic between leaders and individuals. It describes the natural tension between support and autonomy as program leaders walk alongside individuals as they enact a new practice. This book is intended for teacher educators interested in a developmental model of mentor support, but also for those faced with the daunting task of making changes in their own program. There are lessons learned, however, that go beyond teacher preparation and may serve as a catalyst for others as they engage in their own change process.
