Gabriel José Angulo Linero The Effects of Armed Conflict on the Right to Education

Colombia's internal armed conflict has had a negative impact on the right to education. Displaced children have lower access to education than non-displaced Colombian children. The Colombian government has failed to respect, protect and fulfill the availability, accessibility, acceptability, and adaptability of the right to education. The present book is divided into three different chapters. The first chapter aims to study the legal mechanisms that recognize the right to education at the international, regional and national levels in Colombia. The second chapter approaches the Colombian internal armed conflict and the internal displacement crisis that is currently taking place in the country. Finally, the third and final chapter examines the degree in which the right to education is (not) respected, protected, and fulfilled in Colombia among IDPs.

Juliane Drews The Educational Situation of Roma in Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, Roma are the minority with the highest risk of unemployment and the lowest level of education. Alongside the drop out from education for economic reasons that is widespread among young Roma, patterns that are inherent to the educational system discourage them additionally from school attendance. Roma as an ethnic group, Romani culture and history are not reflected in the curriculum. With few exceptions, teachers are not aware of customs and traditions in Romani families. Therefore deviant behaviour of Romani school-students is perceived as disturbing and abnormal. Cultural and religious diversity is not valued but refused as inferior, which makes it less likely that young Roma are accepted by classmates and feel regarded. This volume analyses the complex and discouraging situation of Roma in the Bulgarian education system. It concludes with comprehensive policy recommendations.

Rolf Kretschmann, Daniel Wrobel Attitudes and Perceptions toward Physical Education. A Study in Secondary School Students

Physical education teaching and learning efforts obviously target the student. Like parents, teachers, administrators and any other directly or indirectly involved parties, students do have opinions based on their experience on their respective physical education classes and physical education in general. These opinions, or so-called attitudes, are important to research due to their potential of giving insight to the learner's perspective, which may also serve as an authentic feedback from the student. This study investigated German secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education. Results have the intention to reveal what attitudes towards physical education German students have and which factors influence these attitudes. The study sample contained students from the different school types Gymnasium, Realschule, and Haupt-/Werkrealschule. The students were surveyed via questionnaire that was developed based on validated research instruments from prior studies in the field. Data was analyzed integrating independent variables such as students' gender, physical education grade, grade point average, body mass index, socioeconomic status, type of school, citizenship, and the exercise and physical activity behavior of students, their parents and their peers.

Maiketso Edward Theoha Realising the Right to Education in Lesotho

The enjoyment of life depends on a minimum level of education including literacy. As one of the socio-economic rights, the right to education must be fully realised in order to empower great majority of people out there who are still facing social injustice. This study focuses on the right to education in Lesotho. The extent to which this country has incorporated socio-economic rights, specifically the right to education, is explored. The mechanisms through which the said right is turned into reality; the challenges such right entails and the approach taken by the government are also looked at. As a signatory to many human rights instruments, Lesotho is charged with an obligation of realising socio-economic rights. One of the many international law obligations facing Lesotho emanates from the provisions of International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).

Document from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, University of Sannio, course: Entreprenership/Marketing, language: English, abstract: Europe aspires to increase its share of the international students market, in which the number of internationally mobile students is predicted to rise to 7.2 million by 2025. Entrepreneurship, as a relative "recent" and potentially high attractive field of study, could represent a strategic subject to enhance the attractiveness of European higher education, especially towards those students coming from countries where entrepreneurship education is less developed. Starting from the above considerations, this book aims: a) to present an extensive picture of entrepreneurship higher education in Europe; b) to analyze perceptions and intentions of potential target groups (i.e. foreign students); c) to design a suitable marketing strategy to improve the European entrepreneurship higher education offer and its share in the international students market, as a result of the previous analyses. To this aims, two different surveys have been managed. On one side, primary data have been collected on the presence of entrepreneurship education activities - from the undergraduate to the post-graduate courses - within the universities of all the 27 European Union member States. On the other side, the real interest in pursuing some educational activities in Europe, esp...

Victoria Makulilo Higher Education in Tanzania

The prevailing day to day demonstrations, riots, and chaos waged by university students in Tanzania are a result of poor education policies, one of them being the financing of higher education policy. This book examines the policy and how the poor can access education. It notes that the Higher Education Students' Loans Board which is charged with the task of providing loans to poor students has failed to do the job since it disburses loans to whoever manages to fill up the loan forms. Yet, one can get the loan at certain percentage or at times one cannot get even a single coin. The book may be useful to higher education financing policy actors and students in Tanzania and beyond.

Xiaomin Jiao Influences on Learning - Voices of Postgraduate Students in a New Zealand University

Research on students' approaches to learning in higher education has consistently demonstrated a range of factors influencing students' approaches to learning. Very little literature exists on how postgraduate students in New Zealand experience and perceive these influences. This book explores factors that influence learning from interviews with a range of postgraduate students in a New Zealand university. Data were analysed within each case to show that participant's uniqueness, as well as across the cases to identify common themes pertinent to postgraduate students in general. The findings have significance for understanding and improving the quality of learning of students at a postgraduate level. This book should be especially useful to lecturers in postgraduate programmes, and others interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning in higher education.

Vicheth Sen Higher Education and Civic Engagement in Cambodia

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Pedagogy - Miscellaneous Topics, grade: A, Simon Fraser University , language: English, abstract: In a democratic country, in particular a country in the process of being democratized, high levels of civic engagement from the public are seen as necessary factors to sustain the principles and livelihood of democracy. In the meantime, education, especially higher education, plays a very significant role in promoting citizenship and civic activism. This study tries to identify the levels of civic engagement among students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh and to investigate whether higher education has any significant part in fostering civic engagement among the students. To this end, 200 senior students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia's oldest and largest public university, were surveyed. In the questionnaire, three main categories of civic engagement were used: (a) civic activities, (b) electoral activities and (c) activities for political voice. Results indicate that the students were engaged in only a few activities, but not many others. However, based on the results, the students showed high perceptions about civic activities and high attentiveness to politics and government. What is interesting, however, is that (higher) education and family-two fundamental social institutions-seem to have no significant roles to play in building civically engaged citizens. The findings appear to reflect the curr...

Contemporary American colleges are increasingly queer places, where significant steps toward inclusion of BGLT students have been made. Tracing the journey of BGLT students' emergence, which parallels the modern gay rights movement in America, this monograph provides an overview of data and theory derived from studying BGLT students and student movements in higher education. Offering context for the ways that previously marginalized students in higher education survive and thrive, this issue: Tells the story of their growing visibility on campus Summarizes collective knowledge to date about BGLT identity development Takes stock of transgender students' distinctive position and experiences in higher education Assesses the role of the BGLT campus resource center in supporting students and advancing equity. This issue develops a picture of the ways that BGLT community activism informs scholarship (and vice versa). In the telling of the movement's stories, these lessons suggest a practice of collaborative transformation for advancing the future of BGLT equality in higher education. This is Volume 37 Issue 4 of the Jossey-Bass publication ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education problem, based on thorough research 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.

Rebecca Denton Racial Attitudes among U.S. College Students

In the U.S., minority students lag behind their White and Asian counterparts academically at all levels of the educational structure. Research has shown that the perceptions and attitudes teachers hold regarding their students can have a significant impact on their students' performance and achievement. Studies have found that teachers often carry negative stereotypes regarding non-Asian minority students, which seem to contribute to the failure and discouragement amongst these students. This research found that non-education majors had significantly higher, or more positive, affective racial attitudes than education majors. Additionally, students with higher aptitudes, as measured by ACT or SAT score, reported higher, or more positive, affective attitudes than those with lower aptitudes, and students who had never taken an education course reported higher, or more positive, affective racial attitudes than students who had taken education courses. Educational professionals should re-evaluate the current diversity education requirements and opportunities at both the university and school district levels.

Master's Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1,7, University of Hamburg, 109 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Education is in itself a fundamental human right. As an important determinant of economic growth and human development, education also constitutes an indispensable means of realizing other human rights, particularly rights associated with employment and social security. With the unleashed force of globalization sweeping all aspects of social and economic life, national governments throughout the world increasingly understand the strategic importance of education in enhancing and maintaining international competitiveness, and its crucial role in developing economic and social viability on the long run. On the other hand, the convergent impacts of globalization also bring new impetus for cross-boarder education, and affect the shape and mode of the operation of national education systems more influentially than ever. Over the last two decades trade in cross-border education has been increasing steadily in all forms: not only the numbers of students enrolled in educational institutions outside their home country has been rapidly increasing, but also more and more education providers operate abroad, providing their educational services to foreign students who remain at home. Accelerated development of the new information and communication technologies also facilitate cross-border education and ...

The Brilliance of Black Children in Mathematics. Beyond the Numbers and Toward New Discourse

This book is a critically important contribution to the work underway to transform schooling forstudents who have historically been denied access to a quality education, specifically African Americanchildren. The first section of the book provides some historical perspective critical to understanding thecurrent state of education in the U.S., specifically for the education of African American children. Thefollowing sections include chapters on policy, learning, ethnomathematics, student identity, and teacherpreparation as it relates to the mathematical education of Black children. Through offering"counternarratives" about mathematically successful Black youth, advocating for a curriculum that isgrounded in African American culture and ways of thinking, providing shining examples of thebrilliance of Blacks students, and promoting high expectations for all rather than situating students asthe problem, the authors of this book provide powerful insights related to the teaching and learning of mathematics for African American students. Asis made evident in this book, effective teaching involves much more than just engaging students in inquiry-based pedagogy (Kitchen, 2003). Thechapters offered in this book demonstrate how mathematics instruction for African American students needs to take into account historicalmarginalization and present-day policies that do harm to Black students (Kunjufu, 2005).

A clear roadmap for the new territory of education Education in the U.S. has been under fire for quite some time, and for good reason. The numbers alone tell a very disconcerting story: according to various polls, 70% of teachers are disengaged. Add to that the fact that the United States ranks last among industrialized nations for college graduation levels, and it's evident there's a huge problem that needs to be addressed. Yet the current education system and its school buildings—with teachers standing in front of classrooms and lecturing to students—have gone largely unchanged since the 19th century. Humanizing the Education Machine tackles this tough issue head-on. It describes how the education system has become ineffective by not adapting to fit students' needs, learning styles, perspectives, and lives at home. This book explains how schools can evolve to engage students and involve parents. It serves to spread hope for reform and equip parents, educators, administrators, and communities to: Analyze the pitfalls of the current U.S. education system Intelligently argue the need to reform the current landscape of education Work to make a difference in the public education system Be an informed advocate for your child or local school system If you're a concerned parent or professional looking for a trusted resource on the need for education reform, look no further than Humanizing the Education Machine. This illuminating resource provides the information you need to become a full partner in the new human-centered learning revolution.

Your formula for managing innovation and transforming learning #EdJourney: A Roadmap to the Future of Education is a refreshing change from the negativity so common in the world of education today. Over the course of a 3-month solo road trip across the United States, author Grant Lichtman discovered that there is much to be positive about in today's K-12 schools. Lichtman, one of the country's leading experts in educational innovation, interviewed over 600 teachers, administrators, students, parents, and trustees to find out what kind of innovations they're doing right—and how others can leverage their successes. Innovation in education takes hard work, planning, and cooperation. With examples from around the country and findings from the latest education research, #EdJourney maps out how administrators and teachers can embrace the innovation process that schools and learners need now. Today's 21st century education presents unique challenges and opportunities to students, and this is a trailblazing practical guide to making sure education is ready for the future. #EdJourney focuses on four key questions: What new learning strategies are the top schools implementing to prepare our students for their future rather than for our past? How do teachers and administrators manage transitions to new types of teaching and learning? What are the key obstacles to shifting away from the assembly line model of education? How can we all leverage the lessons of success from the most innovative schools? The concrete examples and advice in this book will help you bring innovation and educational design concepts into your school. #EdJourney goes beyond the theoretical need for change—by now a familiar topic to almost everyone—and takes a real-world approach to achieving transformative education in any school.

The dual-credit curricular initiative offers high school students the opportunity to earn college and high school credits simultaneously without taking a standardized test to acquire the credit. The courses are purported to introduce students to a more rigorous curriculum in high school and save them time and money in their pursuit of college degrees. Dual credit programs have grown rapidly, and this monograph provides a synthesis of: • the scholarly literature on dual credit offered at high school and a variety of postsecondary settings; • underrepresented students’ experiences with the course(s), and • suggestions for future research and drivers that will influence its development. Originally, these initiatives focused on high-achieving students, but additional models have emerged that expand the benefits to lower- and middle-achieving students as well. This is the third issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, 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.

Kevin Brookhouser, Ria Megnin Code in Every Class

It’s an accepted fact that all students need exposure to certain academic disciplines—algebra, world history, chemistry,and probably a Shakespeare play or two. Unfortunately, computer science has not yet risen to must-have status. Given society’s reliance on technology in almost every aspect of modern life, author-educators Kevin Brookhouser and Ria Megnin find the lack of programming education in schools shocking.Code in Every Class explains why computer science is critical to your students’ future success and shows you how to take tech education into your own hands. And here’s the best news: You don’t have to be a computer genius to teach the basics of coding.You’ll learn… How to incorporate fundamental programming skills into your existing lessons—even if you don’t have computer coding experience. How to teach coding principles without a computer Why computer literacy levels the playing field for underprivileged students Too many students have never been shown how to take control of computers and other digital devices. They’re stuck as consumers, when they should be learning how to use tech tools to be creators and problem-solvers. Code in Every Class will allow you to open a world of opportunities to your students, one lesson at a time.

Ram Prasad Sharma How Students Select Higher Secondary Schools. a Case Study in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal

The term education itself means 'to train', 'to lead out' and to 'bring up'. It is said that education is a life-long process, but the basic education that one undergoes during the formative years definitely contributes to the shaping of one's future and outlook. At this point, the school and high school education assumes importance. Even though the history of education in Nepal is relatively short, there has been a considerable growth in the number of educational institutes after the restoration of democracy in 1950 and particularly after 1990 AD.However, having no standard measuring rod to use when evaluating the institutes of higher education, students and parents have had trouble when selecting a college. Furthermore, beguiling advertisements make it impossible to decide which college is genuinely worth attending.Nowadays, it cannot be denied that numerous mediocre institutes exist which try to make a quick buck and cheat the students. This may not always be the case, but such incidents cannot be overlooked. Hence, this subject and possible solutions are analysed in this comprehensive study.

Millennial generation students have had a presence on college campuses for the past few years. Along with their unique qualities, idiosyncrasies and influences, the millennial generation students are well versed in the advantages that a college education can provide. Millennial college students also appear to have preconceived notions about the experiences they will encounter during their college tenure. This phenomenological qualitative research study examined the collegiate expectations and experiences of three millennial generation college students. The study attempted to address the following research question: What does it mean to millennial generation college students when they compare their actual collegiate learning experiences with what they anticipated? The common experiences of the participants were highlighted.

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Wissen und Information, Misurata University, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The major purpose of this study is to discover the reasons of academic dishonesty that takes places among EFL learners in the Education Faculty from the perspective of the students and teachers and to provide a reliable solution to detect this phenomenon. This study seeks to find answers to the following questions:1) What are the students and teachers' perceptions of the causes of academic plagiarism?2) What are the things that can be done to detect plagiarism?As a university student, one has to submit term papers and to conduct researches during the years of his/her study. It is not an easy task to do, especially, if learners are not trained to be so from the early stages of their study. In Libya, the education system aims at providing learn-ers the opportunity to be researchers and discover their own voice. Therefore, students should be encouraged and trained to write the answers for the examinations in their own words. Such actions are considered as the first seed of creativity being planted to have students get their own voice. Taking into account such aim will make students of English department in the Faculty of Education be more aware of their abilities and keep them away from plagiarism.Academic plagiarism is not newly born, but in the last years, it has been observed to take place in the Education Faculty among the students of English de...

Anne Colby Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education. Liberal Learning for the Profession

Business is the largest undergraduate major in the United States and still growing. This reality, along with the immense power of the business sector and its significance for national and global well-being, makes quality education critical not only for the students themselves but also for the public good. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's national study of undergraduate business education found that most undergraduate programs are too narrow, failing to challenge students to question assumptions, think creatively, or understand the place of business in larger institutional contexts. Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education examines these limitations and describes the efforts of a diverse set of institutions to address them by integrating the best elements of liberal arts learning with business curriculum to help students develop wise, ethically grounded professional judgment.

Promising Practices for Family and Community Involvement during High School (PB)

This volume focuses on family and community connections with education during the high school years. Incomparison to the wealth of attention that has been focused on involving parents with schools during the earlychildhood and elementary school years, less attention has been directed to parents of high school students andfewer educational programs have been developed to forge connections between family, community, students,and educators at the high school level. Researchers have found that family and community have a verysignificant impact on student achievement and on post secondary attainment despite the considerable declinein parental involvement by high school. Educators know that family and community factors are important forstudent success in high school while, at the same time, they identify working with families and connecting thecurriculum to the community as difficult.Currently, scholars from various fields are involved in conducting research to better understand how schoolscan best enhance the education of the young through interactions with students' families and communities.Educational practitioners also are pioneering efforts to involve and serve families as well as to connect withcommunities in order to enrich the educational environment and enlarge opportunities for students, teachers, families, and community members. Thisvolume, which will be of interest to both researchers and educators, reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the field. The contributor...

Isabel Rimanoczy Stop Teaching. Principles and Practices For Responsible Management Education

What do we need to change in order to develop a new generation of business leaders who connect profits with purpose, who see in social entrepreneurship and innovation the key opportunity for addressing our planetary challenges? The answer lies in the contents we select to teach, in the values we invite to explore and develop, and in the methods we use. In the era of 24/7 global access to information from our mobile gadgets, many institutions of higher education are still sitting students in rows or amphitheaters, measuring success via tests and evaluations, with instructors lecturing what students should learn. And instructors feel the challenge of competing with sleepy audiences that divide their attention between their cell phones and the speaker. Stop teaching, the author says, inviting instructors in management schools and higher education to adopt some proven learning principles that can reengage students, unleash their potentials, and foster them to shape the world they want to live in. And have fun doing it. Through adult learning research, guides, activities, and stories from pioneering learning facilitators in education and corporate training, Rimanoczy brings a long-needed revamp to educational institutions that want to be part of responsible management education.

Although students have been moving between institutions and attempting to import course credit for many years, current data show that transfer is becoming an increasingly common approach to higher education. This volume is dedicated to exploring this new normal and has been written with a broad constituency in mind. It is intended to assist institutions, higher education agencies, and even state legislative bodies as they navigate the challenges of serving transfer students, a diverse, integral segment of our higher education system. Most available research has explored the two year to four-year transfer track, and the practical examples provided here often use that framework. However, real-world transition issues are not restricted to a specific higher education sector, and readers interested in the sometimes complex processes of other transfer pathways will gain valuable insight as well. This is the 162nd volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education report New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, New Directions for Higher Education provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.

Dangerous Counterstories in the Corporate Academy. Narrating for Understanding, Solidarity, Resistance, and Community in the Age of Neoliberalism

Although the social reality is stark for progressive scholars who engage in scholarly activities or arecommitted to guiding their students to develop a social-just praxis in the circles of higher education, somescholars have found fissures amid the alienating, often hostile academic world to learn, grow, and createtransformative communities. Up to this date, however, their stories have not been captured. Therefore, thepurpose of this volume is to highlight alternative narratives generated by transformative scholars who havemaintained their oppositional identity to the structures that oppress the vast majority of citizens. By bringingtogether these narratives, we focus on those who have joined with likeminded colleagues to teach, engage in activism, and conduct emancipatory formsof research, learning to negotiate and survive academic and corporate realities in spite of restrictive climates.Not only are these stories vital for helping students, academics, and the wider community understand how commercialized forces are impacting theprofessional lives of critical scholars in the academy, they have the power to help current and future critical pedagogues define (and redefine)themselves in a social world which is continually "promoting a narrow and intellectually stifling agenda for the role of education and turning the publicagainst the very idea of a critical education" (McLaren, 2006).

This research project is an investigation of this problem. This work concentrates on looking at the causes of the problem as well as its effects and it proffers possible solutions to the problem it investigates. It is shocking to discover that the general public is aware of this problem and that it is eating deep into the lives of students from poor family backgrounds because they cannot compete favourably with their fellow students, they exhibit deviant behaviours, have personality and psychological problems, low self esteem/trauma, difficulty in personal and academic adjustment to mention just a few. For this reason this research work, recommended possible solutions as creating an enabling environment for discussion at home after school hours, government/non-governmental organizations to provide support that will augment the efforts of the parents in catering for their children, provision of better nutritional diets to their children, guidance and counseling units be made functional to help counsel students who come from poor family backgrounds among others.

Undergraduate students come to college from a myriad of pathways for a variety of purposes, and the same can be said of them as they leave to head off into their next endeavors. Arguably, the most important goal of higher education is to prepare students to achieve their postcollege aspirations, and campuses typically pursue that goal through a combination of curricular and co-curricular programs and services for students. This issue offers readers a glimpse into contemporary context and practice related to helping students with their after-college transition from one form of education (two-year or four-year) to the next (four-year, graduate, or professional school), from education to workforce, or from education to military service.

Virtual Teams in Higher Education. A Handbook for Students and Teachers

In recent years, virtual teams have become a feature of most corporate workplaces, yet few academic programs prepare students to work in virtual teams, and few textbooks support the development of key skills for virtual teamwork. The primary purpose of this book is to enable higher education students to participate in virtual teams with students from other institutions, who potentially operate in different countries, time zones, and/or cultures. The book guides students through the process of working in virtual team projects for their classes, and helps them to engage with the learning experiences, and to respond to potential challenges. The book is directed towards students within any of the following disciplines: Business; Information Technology; Com-munication Studies; and Engineering. One section of the book also guides teachers through the process of organizing virtual team projects, and explores the teacher/teacher collaboration that is an inevitable consequence of organizing inter-institutional student virtual team projects. It provides advice for teachers on how to manage administrative challenges such as conflicting institutional sched-ules and grading mechanisms. In addition, it discusses research themes and data gathering and analysis techniques for teachers who wish to publish findings about the virtual team process and outcomes.

Michael Samuels The Universe-ity. A Spiritual Education using the Law of Attraction

The Universe-ity: A Spiritual Education Using the Law of Attraction is a new curriculum on life. This guidebook challenges the widely conceived notion that in order to be successful, we must have a standard education. Having received a formal education, Samuels knows what it’s like to conform to society’s standards and complete over two decades worth of schooling. But with two bachelors’ degrees and a master’s degree to his name, the author can’t help but wonder if education helps us live a happy, successful life. In “The Universe-ity,” Samuels examines whether or not years of formal education actually teach society how to become successful. The author, who has created his own successful business as well as published his own book, explains how you do not have to have years of education to live a prosperous, fulfilling life. “The curriculum I’ve included in ‘The Universe-ity’ teaches you about you,” says Samuels. “This is a new education system to learn from in order to live a better, more thriving life.” Samuels believes the ideas, beliefs and strategies discussed in “The Universe-ity” will appeal to anyone looking for something more out of their life. He hopes that his words will help everyone, from business people wanting to improve their careers to mothers looking to reinvent themselves to high school students confused about what to do after graduation. The Universe-ity is a stunning new concept in education. Class is officially in session.

Teachers are called nation builders in every country and in every society. The role of teachers is of great importance. It is left to the teachers to inculcate personality characteristics, right values - the values of good citizenship producing law abiding and nation loving citizens. India has made considerable progress in school education since independence with reference to overall literacy, infrastructure and universal access and enrolment in schools. Two major developments in the recent years form the background to the present reform in teacher education - the political recognition of Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE) as a legitimate demand and the state commitment towards UEE in the form of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. The country has to address the need of supplying well qualified and professionally trained teachers in larger numbers in the coming years. At the same time, the demand for quality secondary education is steadily increasing. It is recommended that the aim should be to reach universal secondary education within a maximum of ten years. Given the problems of inadequate quality in most secondary schools due to poor infrastructure and insufficient and poorly equipped teachers, the need for addressing the professional education of secondary teachers acquires great importance.The education of teachers should be such that teachers should set an example and provide for their pupils the ideal of the citizens who is co...

Australia is a vast sparsely populated land and from an early date this createdproblems in terms of providing educational facilities. As part of the solution thenation has had a long tradition of using distance education methods to providean education for its isolated primary and secondary school students. WesternAustralia epitomises the problems inherent in having a large land area with ahighly urbanised population and a small but scattered rural one. Initially, theState established a Correspondence School in 1918. There have been variousdevelopments since then, culminating in the establishment of the Schools of Isolatedand Distance Education (SIDE) in 1995. Since then the staff at SIDE haveinvestigated and developed ways of providing their students with innovative educational materials in an effort toensure that the best possible services are provided.Despite its innovative nature, very little research has been conducted on SIDE. The research project reported inthis book is one contribution to rectifying the deficit. It had three main aims. The first was to develop an understandingof the emergence of SIDE.

June Tran Enhancing Graduate employability. The perspectives of Vietnamese university students and graduates

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2013 in the subject Pedagogy - Adult Education, grade: Pass, La Trobe University Melbourne, course: Doctor of Education, language: English, abstract: Graduate employability has become a highly topical and contested issue in Vietnam. Many employers report that university students are not suitably prepared for work, and universities are often criticised for their poor commitment to developing student employability assets. Much of the criticism identifies the causes to be an outdated higher education curriculum coupled with too much reliance on traditional teaching approaches, and a general poor capacity of universities to support students to develop the skills that the market requires. This study challenges this 'common sense' (Gramsci, 1999) criticism that places the responsibility of student transition to the employment market squarely on the shoulders of universities. By analysing qualitative data, that includes the voices of students, recent graduates and employers, on issues related to employability, this study locates the criticisms of the Vietnamese higher education system within the wider social and cultural contexts related to the difficulties of student transition. It adopts Hillage and Pollard's (1998) employability conceptual framework where the interplay between student employability assets, the ways students translate or deploy their university achievements in employment (Knight & York, 2004) and the int...

Praise for First-Generation College Students «Who students are when they start college does not dictate how much they can benefit, provided they take advantage of the myriad learning opportunities institutions offer. This book is replete with informative insights into the invisible minority we call 'first-gen students' as well as the policies, programs, and practices institutions should use to help them succeed.» —George D. Kuh, Chancellor's Professor of Higher Education Emeritus, Indiana University «Unnoticed and often poorly understood, first-generation college students now comprise nearly fifty percent of students on many college campuses. In this book Ward, Siegel, and Davenport offer great insights and practical suggestions on how higher education leaders can create a more welcoming, supportive, and inclusive experience for these students to succeed.» —Jeffrey R. Docking, president, Adrian College «Critical to our survival in a global economy is the selection, development, retention and graduation of creative college students. First-Generation College Students is both timely and essential for those interested in understanding the next generation preparing for college and the ways in which institutions might anticipate, and therefore avoid, habits that invite failure instead of graduation. The authors' work experiences, coupled with their cited research base, situate them uniquely to contribute intentional survival strategies to the sometimes unanticipated realities of today's college students.» —Zach Kelehear, associate dean for Academic Affairs and professor, College of Education, University of South Carolina «Long overdue, this book provides a comprehensive perspective of the unique issues facing first-generation students as they transition in and out of college. It is an important contribution to higher education during a time when faculty, staff, and administrators face heightened pressures to retain and graduate all students in a timely fashion.» —Cynthia Wolf Johnson, associate provost, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Praise for Generation on a Tightrope «Over the last four decades, Arthur Levine has become the premier analyst of continuities and changes in the American college student population. In this impressive and comprehensive volume, Levine and coauthor Diane R. Dean provide an authoritative and richly textured picture of the much-discussed current generation.» —Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education «Arthur Levine and Diane R. Dean take the long view of today's generation of college students. This is a brilliant examination of what has shaped our young people, what they are doing with the tools they have, and where they are headed. It is a diagnosis of what ails them, a celebration of their strengths, and a compelling and generous prescription for their future—and ours.» —Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University «Through this captivating portrait of the aspirations, values, and unique needs of today's college students, Levine and Dean's clearly written and engaging book ought to generate a national discussion of how higher education can be restructured in order to respond to and prepare the next generation of college-educated adults—not only for effective functioning in the workplace, but also to live lives as whole human beings who can help to lead our society to a healthier place.» —Alexander W. Astin and Helen S. Astin, Distinguished Professors of Higher Education emeriti, UCLA; authors, Cultivating the Spirit: How Higher Education Can Enhance Students' Inner Lives «I can't say enough about how important this work is. This book is right on the mark for what needs to be known and understood about today's college students by those who are responsible for educating the future leaders and citizens of the world.» —Gwen Dungy, executive director, emeritus, NASPA, Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education «Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today's College Student is a must-read for college presidents, administrators, and professors as well as parents, employers, and government leaders—who all have a stake in student success. Understanding who today's college students are is essential as we collaboratively develop and deliver the education that will prepare this generation to build our future.» —Nancy L. Zimpher, chancellor, State University of New York
