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.

This fifth volume in our book series on Research in Management Education and Development (Information Age Publishing) is devoted toward an empiricaland conceptual examination of some long-standing criticisms of graduate management education. This volume also showcases a wide variety of innovativeexperiments in new visions of Master's level graduate management education. We draw upon a rich array of USA and non-USA scholars and empiricalsources in this volume and we are most grateful to our volume's distinguished academic contributors for sustaining our book series aspiration to both reflectupon and shape innovative thinking and practice on important issues of management education and development.The over-arching theme in each chapter is the need for each innovation to be integrated within the larger body of curriculum, program structures andpedagogic practices of the innovative Business School and its overall management education curriculum. Piecemeal and stand-alone versions of eachinnovation are seen more as pilots for early stage demonstration of the value of the innovation. Each chapter argues for a more holistic approach toembedding each innovation within the fabric of the entire business school and graduate management education enterprise. This call for holistic, integrativeapproaches to graduate management education is amply demonstrated in many chapters of this volume and we sincerely hope that you will find someinspiration in the forthcoming pages for further...

The study is an attempt to study the opinions of teachers of special schools, integrated schools and regular schools respectively towards inclusive education. The field of special education has grown tremendously in the past few years, demanding frequent updates for the professionals. Periodic in-service training programmes for teaching professionals to keep them abreast of the developments worldwide and to equip them to face the challenges of changing trends is of paramount importance. Such programmes are needed for all levels of staff from classroom teachers to master trainers. Periodic short-term programmes varying from 2 weeks to 3 months, based on the need, should be made mandatory for all trained professionals. Awareness programmes on each disability be initiated at school level. Mass media can be used for enhancing awareness and influencing attitude of masses towards inclusive education. Though factors behind positive and negative attitudes were not able to be determined, the results indicate that the majority of participants agree that special education and general education teachers need to collaborate in order for inclusive education to be successful.

Undergraduate research is a high-impact practice that sparks students’ interest in learning, and it improves retention, student success, graduation rates, and postgraduation achievement. Many individual campuses have offered these programs for several years, and the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) has partnered with state systems of higher education and public and private consortia to foster the institutionalization of undergraduate research. This volume illustrates many of the successes that entire systems/consortia and their campuses have achieved, such as: connecting undergraduate research to the curriculum, student success and completion, especially for underrepresented students creating cross-campus discussions on curricula and pedagogy, research collaborations among departments and campuses, and enhanced interdisciplinary activities addressing the challenges of workforce development and faculty issues—especially workload and tenure/promotion. This the 169th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, it provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.

Chapters of this issue of New Directions for Higher Education present tenets of codes of conduct for the presidency, academic deans, admissions officers, fund-raising professionals, faculty who teach undergraduate students, and faculty who teach graduate students. The need for such codes of conduct stems from the client-serving role of colleges and universities. Such clients include prospective donors, prospective students and their families, the individual college or university, faculty members, undergraduate and graduate students, and the knowledge base of the various academic disciplines. Because presidents, academic deans, admissions officers, fund-raising professionals, and faculty members experience role ambiguity and substantial autonomy in the performance of their roles, codes of conduct are needed to protect the welfare of the clients served. The authors offer recommendations for policy and practice regarding the proposed codes of conduct. Organizational constraints and possibilities of enacting such codes are also discussed.

American Catholic universities and colleges are wrestling today with how to develop in ways that faithfully serve their mission in Catholic higher education without either secularizing or becoming sectarian. Major challenges are faced when trying to simultaneously build and sustain excellence in undergraduate teaching, strengthen faculty research and publishing, and deepen the authentically Catholic character of education. This book uses the particular case of the University of Notre Dame to raise larger issues, to make substantive proposals, and thus to contribute to a national conversation affecting all Catholic universities and colleges in the United States (and perhaps beyond) today. Its arguments focus particularly on challenging questions around the recruitment, hiring, and formation of faculty in Catholic universities and colleges.In an increasingly secularized culture, where institutions can be tempted to ignore or sideline their Catholic identity, Professors Smith and Cavadini offer a striking, rich, and alternative vision.--Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop, Fort Wayne-South BendFully embracing the ambitious goal of Notre Dame's president to create first-rate undergraduate and graduate programs, all rooted intellectually in Catholicism, Christian Smith spells out why it is very difficult to achieve all three . . .

With roughly 25% of those teaching college classes belonging to a union, higher education is one of the most heavily organized industries in the United States. Substantial research-based literature exists as scholars have been studying the topic for a half of a century. Following an overview of its history and context, this monograph synthesizes and analyzes the existing research on faculty and graduate student unionization. It points to evolving understandings of faculty attitudes regarding collective bargaining and the findings on the relationships between unionization and compensation, satisfaction, procedural protections, organizational effectiveness, and related issues for tenure-line faculty. Additional chapters consider the more limited research on non-tenure-line faculty and graduate student instructors. As such, this monograph illuminates the accepted understandings, contested arguments, and the substantial gaps in understandings that remain. This is the third issue of the 43rd 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.

This study builds on the previous research, analyzing the degree to which various admissions requirements predict performance in a chiropractic college, as indicated by graduate GPA and National Chiropractic Board Exam scores. Data were randomly collected through institutional records on 100 graduates of a chiropractic college in the Midwest. Stepwise and induced fit multiple regression revealed that a model containing organic II grade, degree status and organic I grade was the best predictor of overall graduate performance. Based on the findings of this study, admissions offices should implement some changes to admissions practices. For instance, the research supports altering admissions procedures to place a heavier weight on organic chemistry grades. In addition, admissions offices could significantly increase the performance of chiropractic students by requiring students to have an undergraduate degree upon matriculation of the chiropractic program.

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. This is the 138th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

In my study I have tried to identify, ACCESSING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH LEARNING DIFFICULTIES AND DISABILITIES. A major policy objective of Bangladesh is to provide all children and young people with strong foundational literacy and numeric skills. However, providing appropriate literacy and numeric learning opportunities, especially for children experiencing learning difficulties, continues to be a challenge for teachers and schools. In order to, support teachers and schools, a study needs to be carried out to provide a national picture of how students with learning difficulties are supported in their literacy and numeric learning.Never the less, the research were: Assessing and analyzing the major shortfalls in existing design and implementation process of education programmes for disabled children; Assessing the effectiveness and impact of existing Inclusive Education programmes in terms of Enrollment, Repetition, Dropout and Attitude; Assessing the impact of Special versus Integrated and Inclusive Education; Identifying successful Case studies and areas/issues and possible interventions for strengthening and promoting Inclusive Education.

An ambitious, comprehensive reimagining of 21st century higher education Improving Quality in American Higher Education outlines the fundamental concepts and competencies society demands from today's college graduates, and provides a vision of the future for students, faculty, and administrators. Based on a national, multidisciplinary effort to define and measure learning outcomes—the Measuring College Learning project—this book identifies 'essential concepts and competencies' for six disciplines. These essential concepts and competencies represent efforts towards articulating a consensus among faculty in biology, business, communication, economics, history, and sociology—disciplines that account for nearly 40 percent of undergraduate majors in the United States. Contributions from thought leaders in higher education, including Ira Katznelson, George Kuh, and Carol Geary Schneider, offer expert perspectives and persuasive arguments for the need for greater clarity, intentionality, and quality in U.S. higher education. College faculty are our best resource for improving the quality of undergraduate education. This book offers a path forward based on faculty perspectives nationwide: Clarify program structure and aims Articulate high-quality learning goals Rigorously measure student progress Prioritize higher order competencies and disciplinarily grounded conceptual understandings A culmination of over two years of efforts by faculty and association leaders from six disciplines, this book distills the national conversation into a delineated set of fundamental ideas and practices, and advocates for the development and use of rigorous assessment tools that are valued by faculty, students, and society. Improving Quality in American Higher Education brings faculty voices to the fore of the conversation and offers an insightful look at the state of higher education, and a realistic strategy for better serving our students.

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...

High stakes testing, standards, and accountability politics is taking us away from the importance of the affectivedomain in curriculum development. This critical learning domain is often an unrecognized and infrequentlyconsidered topic in the literature. Through this book we extend the current knowledge base byaddressing a curriculum model developed in the 1980s. We add a 2012 knowledge base as we delineate therole of self-perceptions in school-related learning, how middle level curriculum affects self-perceptions, andthe type of curriculum planning which enhances self-perceptions and improves learning in the cognitive,affective, and psychomotor domains.The combination of sound psychological principles and practical teaching and curriculum suggestions with an empirical basis makes the book attractiveto both higher education and local school professional libraries.

For nearly a decade, scientists, educators and policy makers have issued a call to college biology professors to transform undergraduate life sciences education. As a gateway science for many undergraduate students, biology courses are crucial to addressing many of the challenges we face, such as climate change, sustainable food supply and fresh water and emerging public health issues. While canned laboratories and cook-book approaches to college science education do teach students to operate equipment, make accurate measurements and work well with numbers, they do not teach students how to take a scientific approach to an area of interest about the natural world. Science is more than just techniques, measurements and facts; science is critical thinking and interpretation, which are essential to scientific research. Discovery-Based Learning in the Life Sciences presents a different way of organizing and developing biology teaching laboratories, to promote both deep learning and understanding of core concepts, while still teaching the creative process of science. In eight chapters, the text guides undergraduate instructors in creating their own discovery-based experiments. The first chapter introduces the text, delving into the necessity of science education reform. The chapters that follow address pedagogical goals and desired outcomes, incorporating discovery-based laboratory experiences, realistic constraints on such lab experiments, model scenarios, and alternate ways to enhance student understanding. The book concludes with a reflection on four imperatives in life science research– climate, food, energy and health– and how we can use these laboratory experiments to address them. Discovery-Based Learning in the Life Sciences is an invaluable guide for undergraduate instructors in the life sciences aiming to revamp their curriculum, inspire their students and prepare them for careers as educated global citizens.

Medical curriculum needs to be altered especially in the field of musculoskeletal medicine. There are perceived deficiencies of organized trauma content in many undergraduate surgical programmes. However we see that a MBBS graduate after passing out of his medical schools is found pathetically deficient in management of trauma cases and especially musculoskeletal disease which forms a major chunk of emergency admissions to any public or even private sector hospital. Very few universities in the world has devised a comprehensive teaching program that involves structured teaching programmes that includes designated time table and log books of musculoskeletal diseases. This gives student access to the interpretations of imaging modalities like CT and MRI scan.In my stint as medical teacher we have devised in our university a structured pattern in this important subject which is augmented with assessment like OSCE and MEQ tools with gratifying results. This method has combined structured teaching and clinical clerkship.It is expected that medical educators pay more attention to this important subject.The topics covered in this book are tutorials topics in musculoskeletal medicine.
