Join the dialogue on the future of qualitative inquiry for equity in higher education. Beginning with the premise that equity is of paramount concern in the study of higher education, this text explores the promise and pitfalls of qualitative inquiry with respect to addressing issues of in/equity and fostering social change at micro, meso, and macro levels. Building upon contemporary qualitative higher education scholarship, the authors advance a critique of the reductive and generic conceptions of qualitative research that dominate the field and call upon scholars to examine the transformative potential embedded within critical qualitative inquiry. In addition to exploring the opportunities and tensions associated with engaging in critical qualitative inquiry, this monograph issues a call to action through intervention, describing strategies for challenging and resisting oppressive research norms that undermine the equity aims of higher education research. This is Volume 37 Issue 6 of the Jossey-Bass publication ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph in the series is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education problem, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

A volume in the series: Research in Science Education. Series Editor(s): Dennis W. Sunal, University of Alabama and Emmett L. Wright, Kansas State UniversityThe goal of this volume of Research in Science Education is to examine the relationship between science education policy and practice and the special role that science education researchers play in influencing policy. It has been suggested that the science education research community is isolated from the political process, pays little attention to policy matters, and has little influence on policy. But to influence policy, it is important to understand how policy is made and how it is implemented. This volume sheds light on the intersection between policy and practice through both theoretical discussions and practical examples.This book was written primarily about science education policy development in the context of the highly decentralized educational system of the United States. But, because policy development is fundamentally a social activity involving knowledge, values, and personal and community interests, there are similarities in how education policy gets enacted and implemented around the world.This volume is meant to be useful to science education researchers and to practitioners such as teachers and administrators because it provides information about which aspects of the science education enterprise are affected by state, local, and national policies. It also provides helpful information for researchers and...

The goal of this text is to help you navigate the complex landscape that is inquiry in the science classroom.We focus on inquiry teaching, its various forms and what factors influence its integration into a classroom.We invite you to develop and refine your definitions about scientific inquiry and explore how inquiry mightbe used to support the success of your students. The introduction will include various definitions of inquiryoffered in the research literature accompanied by what we see as useful ways to conceptualize the broadpractices that comprise inquiry in the classroom. Following the introduction the six sections of the book eachexplore factors that influence the use of inquiry in the classroom. Each section begins with one (or more)vignette--snippets of science classrooms. The authors discuss how this vignette demonstrates some aspect ofthe specific dimension that they are charged with discussing. Because inquiry is so multifaceted and itsportrayals are often complex and nuanced, the discussion of the dimension is broken into separate essays--each of which addresses the focal dimension in different ways. Following the essay, a broader discussion across the essays is offered to support yourunderstanding of inquiry.

This volume of Advances in Music Education Research with the idea of research as "situated inquiry."We intend this metaphor to stand for a general description of the contextualized processes music education researchers use to frame, generate, augmentand refine knowledge. The works in this volume illustrate the many ways in which knowledge has been constructed out of multiple approaches tostudying an idea or exploring questions. All seek to expand our knowledge of music education in some form.How we go about engaging in knowledge construction, and what we learn from the different processes involved, is a function of the activities,contexts, and cultures in which our work is "situated." Both knowledge and action is "located," that is, research is placed, positioned or embedded(Lave & Wenger, 1990). Each study illustrates these ideas: All are informed by different theoretical frameworks, use different pathways to exploreproblems of interest and concern, and have something important to say to different constituencies or stakeholders. All, however, are the result ofperceived phenomena or human interpretations of a context.Situated inquiry is neither a quantitative nor qualitative approach to research, nor is it a "mixed-methods" approach. Rather, situated inquiry is afunction of the beliefs and behaviors of the individuals involved in it. It is also a function (and outcome)of the individuals who seek to join a community of practitioners who prac...

The six writers in this book explore the contribution and the transferability of narrative inquiry fromcurriculum studies to daily life in education and in healthcare. They examine the interconnectivity ofreconstructed experience with the construction of disciplinary identity and knowledge. Thinking narratively,they write auto/biographically about relationships between teachers, students, nurses, colleagues, and/orpeople in their care. As narrative inquirers, they are curious how research moves forward professionalsituations in education and healthcare.The narrative plotlines of knowledge construction, curriculum building and identity formation thread throughthe chapters. In education and healthcare, the reconstructed experience of a teacher is shown to befoundational to curriculum content and processes. In nursing education, we see congruence between narrativeinquiry (Clandinin & Connelly, 1995, 2000; Connelly & Clandinin, 1988, 1999) as a process that includes theteacher-researcher as co-participant; and, theorists, such as Watson (1999), include the nurse in the caringsituation as shapers of the experience of people in their care. As practitioner-researchers, teachers in educationand healthcare construct who they are and how they are in relationship in the context of social situations. Inquiry, not certainty (Dewey, 1929), is a lifestance that is formative for education.Practitioners in education and in healthcare will be interested in this book as a way to make me...

As such, in this book theauthor proposes that reflection and inquiry done by teachers in multilingualclassrooms and schools may assist them to construct effective learningcommunities. In this book, Dr. Nevárez-La Torre examines differentways to reflect and conduct teacher inquiry in instructional settings wherestudents speak more than one language.Her exploration focuses on a teacher-oriented question: What happens when practitioners whowork in multilingual schools inquire about their own practice, their students' learning, and their school'sability to create a community of learners and thinkers? The main purpose of the book is to delineate amodel for conducting classroom inquiry that teachers may follow to pursue important questions abouttheir practice and multilingual students' learning process.Some special features of the volume include: a case study of amultilingual teacher inquiry group; description of the steps to followin designing and implementing inquiry projects; and a bibliography ofkey resources (i.e., books, websites, and journals) for conductingteacher inquiry as...

Roland M. Schulz Rethinking Science Education. Philosophical Perspectives

6177 руб.
This book presents a "philosophy of science education" as a research field as well asits value for curriculum, instruction and teacher pedagogy. It seeks to re-think scienceeducation as an educational endeavour by examining why past reform efforts havebeen only partially successful, including why the fundamental goal of achievingscientific literacy after several "reform waves" has proven to be so elusive. Theidentity of such a philosophy is first defined in relation to the fields of philosophy,philosophy of science, and philosophy of education. It argues that educational theorycan support teacher's pedagogical content knowledge and that history, philosophy andsociology of science should inform and influence pedagogy. Some case studies areprovided which examine the nature of science and the nature of language to illustratewhy and how a philosophy of science education contributes to science education reform. It seeks to contribute in general tothe improvement of curriculum design and science teacher education. The perspective to be taken on board is that to teachscience is to have a philosophical frame of mind-about the subject, about education, about one's personal teacher identity.

Japan, South Korea, Singapore and India are the countries that have strong and dynamic economy in the 21st century. One of the most important factors which contributes to these countries to come to the existing position is due to the curriculum that they have designed in mathematics and science subjects for their young generations. The authors have tried to go through the curriculum 0f these countries starting from kindergarten to high school. The book shows how they have laid foundation in mathematics and science in the ladder of their education system. We encourage scholars to go through the book and check what their country education looks like by taking the indicators that we used to compare. After reading the book, they will have an opportunity to learn from these countries and forward some valuable intellectual inputs to their countries. These days it has become common to call South Korea by the name of "Dynamic Korea". This is the result of the science and mathematics curriculum they have designed for their competency. Finally we strongly encourage all developing and developed nations who are attempting to progress and bring sustainable development have to take time and lear

Qualitative Research Methods in Education and Educational Technology was written for studentsand scholars interested in exploring the many qualitative methods developed over the last 50 yearsin the social sciences. The book does not stop, however, at the boundaries of the social sciences.Social scientists now consume and use research methods from many fields. The rich resources ofresearch methods and theories from both the humanities and philosophy are also covered in thisbook. It explains why postpositivist quantitative research should not be “the only game in town”and provides solid theoretical foundations, beginning with the positions of Plato and Aristotle, forbroadening our horizons about what warrants our attention. Using Aristotle’s concept of phronesisthe author shows why methods such as narrative research and storytelling, hermeneutic inquiry,literary theory, philosophical inquiry, and much more have important applications in educationand educational technology. On those foundations, the author also builds a framework for doingmany types of research – from participatory action research to content analysis, to postmodern case studies, to empowerment researchand philosophical inquiry. He accomplishes this through a combination of original text, summaries of exemplary research in educationand educational technology, and suggested readings that are annotated and introduced at the end of each chapter.

Contemporary science teaching approaches focus on fostering students toconstruct new scientific knowledge as a process of inquiry rather than havingthem act as passive learners memorizing stated scientific facts. Although thisperspective of teaching science is clearly emphasized in the National ResearchCouncil's National Science Education Standards (NRC, 1996), it is howeverchallenging to achieve in the classroom. Science teaching approaches shouldenhance students' conceptual understanding of scientific concepts which can be later utilized by students indeeper recognition of real world (Marsak & Janouskova, 2007). This book identifies and describes severaldifferent contemporary science teaching approaches and presents recent applications of these approaches inpromoting interest among students. It promotes conceptual understanding of science concepts among them aswell. This book identifies pertinent issues related to strategies of teaching science and describes best practice Thechapters in this book are culmination of years of extensive research and development efforts to understand moreabout how to teach science by the distinguished scholars and practicing teachers.

American science education is in trouble. As the United States continues to lagbehind other nations in science achievement, the question is asked: how can webetter get our students excited and inspired by science? This is the science teacher'sduty. The irony of the education profession is that some of the most importantaspects of it are the hardest to measure and replicate. The things that matter mostcan be the hardest to quantify. Some teachers can know the different learning styles,intelligences, and brain preferences of their students. They can know best practicesof how to deliver instruction. They can do all these things and more, but still notconvey imagination and passion for science to their students.But some science teachers do inspire. These special teachers seem to possesssomething the others don't, but what is it? Exceptional science teachers make us feel better about ourselvesthrough their teaching of science, and bring us to a higher quality of life as a result, while some science teacherscan be the leading researchers in their fields, yet leave us flat.

Evaluation has played a fundamental role throughout the history of higher education. It has been key to institutional missions and for accountability concerns for public funding policy and fiscal oversight. In the last 30 years, there has been focused attention on the quality of education and student learning. Campuses have stepped up their initiatives to evaluate educational outcomes—and communicate these to their constituencies—just as regional, state, and national efforts have emerged regarding assessment of learning outcomes. In this context, various methods and approaches to evaluative inquiry have emerged to support efforts to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of instructional practice and curriculum for higher learning. This edition examines perspectives on evaluation studies addressing higher education learning—from program- to institution-based studies and critiques of practice—to document successes and identify significant challenges that face evaluators and the collaborating educators in the continuing development of higher education. This examination represents both an investigation into the particular insights that evaluative inquiry contributes to the scholarship and practice of higher education and a reflection on the evaluation expertise that can be applied across contexts of professional practice and program development. This is the 151st issue in the New Directions for Evaluation series from Jossey-Bass. It is an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.

It consists of six lectures about raising and educating children encouraging spending much time outdoors, immersed in nature, handling natural objects and collecting experiences on which to base the rest of their education. She concludes with remarks about the Will, the Conscience, and the Divine Life in the Child.Charlotte Mason was a British educator whose ideas were far ahead of her time. She believed that it was better to feed the minds of children with living literature and vital ideas than dry facts and knowledge filtered and predigested by the teacher. Mason's method of education shows it's strength through its widespread use today by private schools and homeschooling families. It is flexible and includes first-hand exposure to ideas through books in art, music, and poetry, nature observation as the primary means of early science teaching, use of manipulatives and real-life application to understand mathematical concepts and learning to reason, rather than rote memorization, and an emphasis on character and on cultivating and maintaining good personal habits.The complete collection of Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series includes:Volume 1 - Home Education Volume 2 - Parents and ChildrenVolume 3 - School EducationVolume 4 - OurselvesVolume 5 - Formation Of CharacterVolume 6 - Towards A ...
