Student Feedback: The Cornerstone to an Effective Quality Assurance System in Higher Education
In recent years, student feedback has appeared at the forefront of higher education quality. In particular, the issues of effectiveness and the use of student feedback to affect improvement in higher education teaching and learning, and also other areas of student tertiary experience. Despite this, there has been a relative lack of academic literature, especially in book format, focusing on the experiences of academics, higher education leaders and managers with expertise in this area. This comprehensive book addresses this gap. With contributions by experts in the area of higher education quality (academics, higher education leaders and managers) from a range of countries the book is concerned with the practices and theory of evaluation in higher education quality, in particular the issue of student feedback.

Academic Freedom in a Democratic South Africa: Essays and Interviews on Higher Education and the Humanities
How do we understand academic freedom today? Does it still have relevance in a global reconfiguring of higher education in the interests of the economy, rather than the public good? And locally, is academic freedom no more than an inconvenient ideal, paid lip service to South Africa's Constitution as an individual right, but neglected in institutional practice? This book argues that the core content of academic freedom-the principle of supporting and extending open intellectual enquiry-is essential to realizing the full public value of higher education. John Higgins emphasizes the central role that the humanities, and the particular forms of argument and analysis they embody, bring to this task. Each chapter embodies the particular force of a critical literacy in action, one which brings into play the combined force of historical inquiry, theoretical analysis, and precise attention to the textual dynamics of all statement so as to challenge and confront the received ideas of the day. These provocative analyses are complemented by probing interviews with three key figures from the Critical Humanities: Terry Eagleton, who discusses the deforming effects of managerialism in British universities; Edward W. Said, who argues for increased recognition of the democratizing force of the humanities; and Jakes Gerwel, who presents some of the most recent challenges for the realization of a humanist politics in South Africa.

The Creative Community College: Leading Change Through Innovation
Turning adversity into opportunity, overcoming obstacles, building alliances, systems, and programs that lead to success-each chapter of this popular publication tells a unique story about the distinct challenges community colleges face. It also details the unique responses of community college leaders with the vision to overcome the challenges and the resistance. Take this opportunity to explore how creative and transformational leadership can turn adversity into success. Community college leaders share their real-world experiences including the successes, failures, and risks that led to strengthened institutions, more successful alliances, and the creation of new systems. But this book is really about leadership: creative and transformational leadership. Each of the chapters tells a story of unique challenges and equally unique responses by community college leaders who built alliances, systems, and programs, often facing significant obstacles and even active resistance. In The Creative Community College, these leaders share their success, their failures, and the risks they took to strengthen their institutions, to build alliances with school systems, and to create new systems. George R. Boggs, former CEO and President, American Association of Community Colleges
