Assessment Practice in Student Affairs: An Applications Manual
A must read for anyone interested in understanding and developing assessments that can demonstrate the efficacy of their programs and services. A perfect sequel to 'Assessment in Student Affairs.' - Charles C. Schroeder, vice chancellor for student affairs, University of Missouri Columbia Upcraft and Schuh tell us when, where, how, and why we should conduct assessments differently within a wide variety of student service departments. Read and apply! - Gary R. Hanson, professor, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Arizona State University. When Assessment in Student Affairs first appeared in 1996, readers found a practical context for viewing the power of assessment across the domain of student services. Since then, John H. Schuh and M. Lee Upcraft have received numerous requests for more specific guidance to assessing and communicating the value of student affairs. This manual continues the work begun in their earlier book and provides a full range of tools for conducting effective assessments. The authors begin with an overview of the assessment process and then detail a range of methodologies, approaches, and issues - explaining how to use them and when to recruit expertise from other campus sources. Drawing from the latest practice and a wealth of case studies, they discuss: qualitative assessment, including how to conduct focus groups; quantitative assessment, including how to select and design instruments; data collection and analysis, including mailed questionnaires, telephone surveys, and Web-based surveys; assessing diverse needs, satisfaction, outcomes, environments, cost effectiveness, and accreditation; specialized assessment studies, including how to review dropouts, graduates, academic success, and group educational programs; select programs in student services, including first-year programs, recreation programs, financial aid, admissions, residence halls, college unions, health services, career services, counseling services, judicial affairs, and Greek life; and organizational and ethical approaches to assessment.

University Leadership: The Role of the Chief Executive
There is a myth that university leaders have been reborn as chief executives. The authors of University Leadership argue that the reality is both more complex and more ambiguous. Although the managerial and political pressures on university leaders have increased (as have expectations of the institutional leadership they can provide) there is substantial evidence of significant continuity - not simply in who vice chancellors are and what they do - but also in how they conceive their roles; and the donnish monopoly of the top jobs in universities remains virtually unchallenged despite the development of mass higher education. This is a balanced empirical and theoretical study of the present state of institutional leadership in higher education. It draws upon the authors' own research and other international studies, contextualizes the roles of university leaders, and is studded with fascinating data and vignettes about their backgrounds, ideas and day-to-day practices. It is essential reading for university leaders and managers, senior academics, policy-makers, and scholars of the policy and practice of higher education.

Bullying Hurts: Teaching Kindness Through Read Alouds and Guided Conversations
"We believe focused read aloud experiences with carefully selected children's literature followed by guided conversations is one way you can create a climate in your classroom, school, or district where bullying is not an accepted or rewarded behavior. A climate where an individual's humanity and human dignity trump any difference(s) and kindness is the order of the day." -Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth Bullying Hurts is not your same-old anti-bullying guide. Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth show how the read aloud, a familiar and proven instructional technique, can be used as a powerful way to neutralize bullying behaviors, create community in the classroom, and help you meet the Common Core State Standards at the same time. Recent research shows that punishing students who bully is not enough, that we must begin every child's education by establishing relationship skills and building empathy among students. Lester and Reba recommend a series of read aloud books that focus on our shared humanity and can be used on day one of Kindergarten and throughout the elementary years. They help you support the development of children's insight and compassion. Bullying Hurts guides students toward increased understandings about bullying behavior with a framework of five recommended read-alouds and accompanying lessons that help you: define and discuss the important lessons about bullying embedded in each book develop literacy skills and strategies, conversation, critical thinking, character analysis, and reflection connect read aloud experiences to the anchor standards for reading in the Common Core. Bullying Hurts does more than help children gain the insights and language needed to confront and neutralize the behaviors of bullies. It convinces us that by working together, we really can prevent bullying.

The previous edition of this book was notable for explaining how the values and beliefs of educators have a critical impact on school functioning. In this long-awaited new edition, authors focus on new and inspiring case examples from schools across the country to show how culture-based practices are being used to bring purpose, passion, and meaning to the educational experience. They also show how leaders play important symbolic roles in schools and how culture-based strategies can help educators manage everyday challenges and even serve to heal and transform toxic school environments.

New Directions in Professional Higher Education
This book exemplifies the growing involvement of universities in professional education at its highest level. It also demonstrates the increasing importance of education for the professions in the work of universities. It contains a wealth of practical examples and ideas about how universities can respond to the changing needs of students' initial professional training, continuing professional development and lifelong learning. At the heart of the book is a series of analytical case studies of developing practices that respond to the challenges to higher education at the start of the new millennium. These chapters address important themes in developing professional HE: partnership, independent learning, reflective practice, new technologies, intranets, world wide web, distance learning, the international dimension, work readiness, assessment and standards. Many of the case studies test out ideas in action. The result is a valuable handbook for practitioners of professional education in HE and an important resource for staff and educational developers and higher education managers.

Comparative and Global Pedagogies: Equity, Access and Democracy in Education
A major aim of Comparative and Global Pedagogies: Equity, Access and Democracy in Education which is the second volume in the 12-volume book series Globalisation, Comparative Education and Policy Research, edited by Joseph Zajda and his team, is to present a global overview of recent trends in equity and access in education globally. By examining some of the major education policy issues, particularly in the light of recent shifts in education and policy research dealing with equity and access, the editors aim to provide a comprehensive picture of the intersecting and diverse discourses of globalization, education and policy-driven reforms. The impact of globalization on education policy and reforms is a strategically important issue for us all. More than ever before, there is a need to understand and analyse both the intended and the unintended effects of globalization on edu- tional systems, the state, and relevant policy changes - especially in terms of equity and access, as they affect individuals, educational bodies (such as universities), policy-makers across the globe. Current education policy research dealing with equity and social inequality reflects a rapidly changing world where citizens and consumers are experiencing a growing sense of uncertainty, exclusion and loss of flexibility. Yet globalization exposes us also to opportunities generated by a fast changing world economy.

Adequacy, Accountability, and the Future of Public Education Funding
This book is about public education reform and the future of pubHc education funding. Given the many articles, books, and conferences that have focused on the issue of public education reform, it is reasonable to ask whether the world needs still another volume on this subject. In my defense, I would argue that, although there is a large literature on public education reform, there is precious little that tries to sketch the big picture. Too often, both in research and in practice, it is easy to lose sight of the forest, for all the focus on the individual trees. While such detailed analysis is of critical value, that value derives both from its specificity and from its ability to fit into a larger, coherent whole. Unfortunately, our understanding of the public education process is still incomplete and disconnected, particularly with regard to the connections between research, policy, and practice. This book is an attempt to step back for a moment to get one's bearings before jumping headlong back into the forest. It is my hope that this book will be of value to a wide variety of reader- researchers in departments of economics and schools of education, policy makers at all levels, and, of course, the practitioners slogging away in the trenches.

Whatever Happened to Progressivism?: The Demise of Child-centred Education in Modern Britain
In this professorial lecture Roy Lowe highlights important research on the debate on teaching in Britain in the post-Second World War era. He begins by reflecting on recent trends in the study of history of education and goes on to argue the need for research which is socially aware and sensitive to the political and social trends that underlie classroom practice. He also suggests that historians of education have something to say about the wider issues confronting the global community at this time. This lecture shows how stereotypes have developed around ways we perceive developments in teaching since 1944 and then suggests the need for a new look at the debate on the school curriculum. Important new research evidence is used to provide fresh insights into the debate on how children should be taught and what they should be taught in the years following the Second World War.

The many public debates launched by governments on education, such as Tony Blair's emphasis on education, education, education have nonetheless failed to consider the place of the good society in educational endeavour. The traditional account of education is that it not only teaches pupils the skills to earn a living, but also teaches a concern for the welfare of others, a love of the many cultures of learning and a commitment to the best values of society. Education and the Good Society seeks to examine these considerations and to restore them to the centre of the educational debate.

School Social Work: An Evidence-Informed Framework for Practice
School Social Work: An Evidence-Informed Framework for Practice offers school social work students and veteran practitioners a new framework for choosing their interventions based on the best available evidence. It is the first work that synthesizes the evidence-based practice (EBP) process with recent conceptual frameworks of school social work clinical practice offered by leading scholars and policymakers. Many other books on EBP try to fit empirically-validated treatments into practice contexts without considering the multiple barriers to implementing evidence-based practices in places as complicated and multi-faceted as schools. Additionally, there are vital questions in the literature about what the best levels for intervention (micro- or macro-) are in school social work. This volume will acknowledge the complexity of applying EBP in schools, and offer a conceptual framework that addresses the real-world concerns of practitioners as they struggle to provide the best services to their school clients. School Social Work: An Evidence-Informed Framework for Practice synthesizes these important and exciting ideas in school social work practice. Written by four school social work scholars with over four decades of theoretical, research, and practice experience, this volume will be relevant to both research faculty studying school social work interventions and students learning about school social work practice.

Knowledge, Higher Education, and the New Managerialism: The Changing Management of UK Universities
The nature of Higher Education in the UK has changed over the last three decades. Academics can no longer be said to carry out their work in 'ivory towers', as increasing government intervention and a growing 'target culture' has changed the way they work. Increasingly universities have transformed from 'communities of scholars' to 'workplaces'. The organization and administration of universities has seen a corresponding prevalence of ideas and strategies drawn from the 'New Public Management' ideology in response, promoting a more 'business-focussed' approach in the management of public services. This book examines the issues that academics now face as a result of these changes, both as the 'knowledge-workers' managed, and the 'manager-academic'. It draws on a detailed study of academics holding management roles ranging from Head of Department to Vice Chancellor in sixteen UK universities, exploring their career histories and trajectories, and providing extensive accounts of their values, practices, relationships with others, and their training and development as managers. Drawing on debates around 'New Public Management', knowledge management, and knowledge workers, the wider implications of these themes for policy innovation and strategy in HE and the public sector more generally are considered, developing a critical response to recent approaches to managing public services, and practical suggestions for improvements which could be made to the training and support of senior and middle managers in universities. The book will be of interest to all teaching, researching, or managing in Higher Education, Education policy-makers, and academics and researchers concerned with Public Management, Knowledge Management, or Higher Education.
