Technology and Engagement: Making Technology Work for First Generation College Students
Technology and Engagement is based on a four-year study of how first generation college students use social media, aimed at improving their transition to and engagement with their university. Through web technology, including social media sites, students were better able to maintain close ties with family and friends from home, as well as engage more with social and academic programs at their university. This `ecology of transition' was important in keeping the students focused on why they were in college, and helped them become more integrated into the university setting. By showing the gains in campus capital these first-generation college students obtained through social media, the authors offer concrete suggestions for how other universities and college-retention programs can utilize the findings to increase their own retention of first-generation college students.

The Challenge of Independent Colleges: Moving Research into Practice
This book began as a collaboration among top higher education researchers, the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE) scholars, and the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC). Documenting the challenges and opportunities facing independent colleges in several integral areas, including public purposes and student engagement, The Challenge of Independent Colleges is informed by the reactions of independent campus presidents and provosts who work every day to act on the opportunities presented by private colleges and universities. Each of the nine chapters is written by a leading higher education scholar and frames highly relevant issues for administrators at independent colleges and universities. Topics range from Access and Affordability and Assessment to Ensuring Student Success and Institutional Strategy. Each chapter is followed by a short, critical reaction written by a provost or president at a CIC member institution. These reactions demonstrate how the information contained in the chapter might be used by institutional leaders to make decisions and what other information on the chapter's topic might be useful for leaders at independent colleges and universities. An important resource for higher education scholars and campus leaders, this text will also be a useful addition to courses on education. Contributors: John M. Braxton, Erin B.

Leadership Dialogues: Leadership in Times of Change: No. 2
Following on from the bestselling Leadership Dialogues (ISBN 978-184590906-2), Leadership Dialogues II examines eight more themes crucial to the effective education of our young people in schools. This is not a book containing all the answers, rather it is a book containing many of the questions that will help school leaders work with their colleagues to find the answers, both for their own schools and for the communities in which they work. We are living in times when people are looking for simple answers, for detailed instructions which will ensure they progress to their goals. In times of rapid change, such as we are in now and are likely to be for at least the next 30 years, there is no step-by-step guide, no instruction manual - only some powerful tools that can help you on your journey. The problems faced by schools across the globe will have similar themes, but the precise issues are very specific to each school. It follows that the best people to interrogate the problems experienced by an individual school and to find the solutions to them are those working there every day. Each of the eight themes in this book has five sections: each of which has an outline showing why the topic is important, some key quotes to engage thinking, a ten-minute read to provoke debate (available in PDF form on the accompanying CD-ROM for circulation to the rest of the leadership team), some questions for the team to consider and at least two resources for each section. The resources are often in table form, enabling you to use the materials with little extra preparation. All you need to do is think, discuss and then act. The eight themes in this book are:* Securing equity and engagement * Clarifying the purpose of education * Middle leadership - the engine room of the school* Managing resources * Learning and technology * Global education * Alternative staffing models

Learning Time: In Pursuit of Educational Equity
This important book explores how education time can be expanded, reimagined, and reorganized in an effort to enhance the educational opportunities and outcomes of disadvantaged students. The editors and contributors address questions of educational equity and opportunity by considering how best to extend learning time in high-poverty schools. Learning Time examines how the nature, quality, and quantity of education time varies dramatically for affluent and poor children. The book's contributors provide a comprehensive view of strategies for tackling this issue within the context of the inequities disadvantaged students face. They also explore the positive outcomes associated with expanded learning time and examine the cultural and political underpinnings of our current inequitable system-and describe fundamental, lasting ways to overturn those underlying conditions. This book promises to be a valuable overview of a vital, understudied field and a practical, useful resource for policy makers and practitioners who are determined to implement reforms for underserved youth.

What if we have lost the ability to think straight? And what if this is why the shocking injustices of contemporary life go unchallenged in spite of being widely acknowledged? And what if the university, the institution that is supposed to help us to think, is in on the act? In this polemical account of how universities are failing both their students and society, Sinead Murphy shows how the Zombie University of the twenty-first century is keeping us down rather than raising us up, and asks whether, in spite of everything, it could be brought back to life, and whether we could dare to think again.

Working-Class Boys and Educational Success: Teenage Identities, Masculinities and Urban Schooling
This book examines the complex relationship between working-class masculinities and educational success. Drawing on a small sample of young men attending either a selective grammar or a secondary school in the same urban area of Belfast, the author demonstrates that contrary to popular belief, some working-class boys are engaged with education, are motivated to succeed and have high aspirations. However, the structures of schooling in a society where working class-ness is seen as feckless, tasteless and cultureless make the processes of becoming successful more challenging than they need to be. This volume reveals the unique processes of reconciling success and identities for individual working-class boys, and the important role schools have to play in this negotiation. Highly relevant to those engaged in teacher training in socially unequal societies, this book will also appeal to practitioners, sociologists of education, scholars of social justice and Bourdieusian theorists.

Leadership for Tomorrow: Beyond the School Improvement Horizon
Aimed at school leaders, those preparing for leadership and those with an interest in leadership development and policy.Leadership for Tomorrow considers what needs to change if schools are to really equip children and young people to thrive in a changing world. Instead of continually adding improvements to existing models of schooling, we need a more radical reconceptualisation of the function and purpose of schools. Such a change involves inhabiting the worlds of today and tomorrow simultaneously. Leadership for Tomorrow explores, in both practical and theoretical terms, the nature of the change leadership which can make this happen. Schools of Tomorrow (SoTo) was formed in 2011 by a group of school leaders who wondered how they could work together to shape a better future for their schools. Their experience and practice has directly informed the development of this book. Leadership for Tomorrow draws on unpublished doctoral research by Dr Malcolm Groves, a founding member of the SoTo group, which examines the interconnectedness of trust, stakeholder engagement, leadership and educational outcomes in English secondary schools and research carried out by Andrew Hobbs, also a SoTo founder, which investigated how pupils and staff in five English secondary schools viewed themselves as learners. Rooted in the direct experience of innovative and successful school leaders, Leadership for Tomorrow offers strategies to enable leaders to take their approach to school improvement to the next level. Leadership is not confined simply to responding to the short-term demands of today. It has to combine this with a clear vision of tomorrow's needs and a determination to find practical and effective ways to plan to meet these needs within today's constraints. Some leaders are already successfully using this tension to fashion better futures for the children and young people in their care. By sharing their experiences, Groves, Hobbs and West-Burnham hope to encourage leaders to go further in building their own and their school's capacity to live and grow successfully. Suitable for all school leaders.

Universities and Colleges: A Very Short Introduction
What is a university? What is the University? How have universities evolved over the centuries? How might they change over the coming decades as the physical and organisational entity most identified with 'higher education' being delivered to over 250 million students? What will be the impact of digital- and distance-learning, of commercial for-profit new entrants to the higher education market, of government austerity, of globalization, of student consumerism? Exploring the origins and the concept, the idea and the ideal, of the university, this Very Short Introduction discusses one of the world's oldest, most resilient, and most adaptable institutions. David Palfreyman and Paul Temple consider the links between universities and the economy, and the role of universities within society. Highlighting some of the key questions surrounding the position of universities, they ask how the university can be politically accountable for its taxpayer funding, if it needs to be autonomous to function effectively as a public good. Are professors professional enough in their teaching practices at a time that increasing tuition fees transform students more and more into consumers? And just what does 'academic freedom' for university faculties really entail? ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Cheating in College: Why Students Do It and What Educators Can Do about It
Today's students are tomorrow's leaders, and the college years are a critical period for their development of ethical standards. Cheating in College explores how and why students cheat and what policies, practices, and participation may be useful in promoting academic integrity and reducing cheating. The authors investigate trends over time, including internet-based cheating. They consider personal and situational explanations, such as the culture of groups in which dishonesty is more common (such as business majors) and social settings that support cheating (such as fraternities and sororities). They also focus on how faculty and administrators are increasing their efforts to promote academic honesty among students. Orientation and training sessions, information on college and university websites, student handbooks that describe codes of conduct, honor codes, and course syllabi all define cheating and establish the consequences. Based on the authors' multiyear, multisite surveys, Cheating in College quantifies and analyzes student cheating to demonstrate why academic integrity is important and to describe the cultural efforts that are effective in restoring it.

We Need to Talk About Re: Manifestos for the Future of Religious Education
Although Religious Education (RE) is a legal requirement in UK schools, it is an oft-neglected and misunderstood subject. It is important to seriously re-think this key subject at this time of low religious literacy and rising extremism, to protect communities from the consequences of hatred and misunderstanding. This book promotes a public discussion of what exactly is needed from a new model of RE within our education system to benefit wider society. In this edited collection, the chapters are diverse and future-facing, informed by theory and practice and written by a variety of key leading practitioners and emerging national leaders in RE. It covers the most pressing and urgent issues for RE such as hate speech, educational reform, and the weakening of moderate religious institutions. Linking the chapters together with recurring themes and joining passages, the editors create a flowing and coherent discussion about the state of RE and offer choices and routes for readers to consider in terms of its future course.

Building the Intentional University: Minerva and the Future of Higher Education
How to rebuild higher education from the ground up for the twenty-first century. Higher education is in crisis. It is too expensive, ineffective, and impractical for many of the world's students. But how would you reinvent it for the twenty-first century-how would you build it from the ground up? Many have speculated about changing higher education, but Minerva has actually created a new kind of university program. Its founders raised the funding, assembled the team, devised the curriculum and pedagogy, recruited the students, hired the faculty, and implemented a bold vision of a new and improved higher education. This book explains that vision and how it is being realized. The Minerva curriculum focuses on practical knowledge (knowledge students can use to adapt to a changing world); its pedagogy is based on scientific research on learning; it uses a novel technology platform to deliver small seminars in real time; and it offers a hybrid residential model where students live together, rotating through seven cities around the world. Minerva equips students with the cognitive tools they need to succeed in the world after graduation, building the core competencies of critical thinking, creative thinking, effective communication, and effective interaction. The book offers readers both the story of this grand and sweeping idea and a blueprint for transforming higher education.

College Athletes' Rights and Well-Being: Critical Perspectives on Policy and Practice
College athletes are at the very center of emerging campus debates over their legal, financial, and academic role. Amid ongoing litigation and pressure from internal and external stakeholders, many policy makers and university leaders are scrambling to determine the nature of this role. This timely and comprehensive volume identifies and discusses bylaws and legal decisions that have impacted the college athlete's ability to pursue higher education. It also explains and critiques the formal policies of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and member institutions while examining critical issues relevant to the growing fields of sport management, athletic administration, and sports law. Aimed at anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of the intercollegiate athletics landscape, College Athletes' Rights and Well-Being is divided into four sections. The first lays out the historical foundations that have shaped the intercollegiate athletic experience. Subsequent sections describe the principles, structures, and conditions that influence how athletes experience campus life, as well as the increasingly commercialized business enterprise of college sports. Told from the perspective of athletes and written by leading scholars and researchers, the book's sixteen chapters are enhanced with useful lists of key terms and conversation-provoking discussion questions. Touching on everything from concussion protocols and collective bargaining to amateurism, Title IX's gender-separate allowance, and conference realignment, this important book is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, educators, practitioners, policy makers, athletic administrators, and advocates of college athletes.

It is cross-cultural, comparative and inclusive, with each chapter featuring case studies from a minimum of three countries across different continents.

Drawing from an international authorship and having global appeal, this book scrutinizes, suggests and aggravates the relationships, boundaries and connections between arts, research and education in various contexts. Building upon existing publications in the field of arts-based educational research, it deliberately connects and disconnects the terms in order to expose and broaden the scope of this field thereby encouraging fresh perspectives. This book portrays both contemporary theoretical prospects as well as contemporary examples of practice. It also presents work of emerging scholars, thereby 'growing the field'. The book includes academic text-based chapters, as well as poetry, narrative fiction, visual essays, and combinations of text-image-sound/video that demonstrate performance of music, theatre, exhibition and dance. This book provides and provokes critical dialogue about the forms, representations, dissemination and intersections of the arts, research and education. This is a focused collection and resource for scholars and students with an international authorship, perspective and audience.
