Book Summary:

DIVFrom the former president of one of America's leading universities comes a comprehensive analysis of the challenges and opportunities facing higher education in America as we enter the twenty-first century. In A University for the Twenty-first Century, James J. Duderstadt discusses the array of powerful economic, social, and technological forces that are driving the rapid and profound change in American social institutions and universities in particular. /divDIVChange has always characterized the university as it has sought to preserve and propagate the intellectual achievements, the cultures, and the values of our civilization. However, the capacity of the university to change, through a process characterized by reflection, reaction, and consensus, simply may not be sufficient to allow the university to control its own destiny. Not only will social and technical change be a challenge to the American university, Duderstadt says, it will be the watchword for the years ahead. And with change will come unprecedented opportunities for those universities with the vision, the wisdom, and the courage to lead in the twenty-first century. The real question raised by this book is not whether higher education will be transformed, but rather how . . . and by whom. /divDIVJames J. Duderstadt is President Emeritus and University Professor of Science and Engineering, University of Michigan. /div

Book Summary:

The current trend of learner centeredness in education has been challenging many of the current ways of working, especially in higher education institutions. This rapid change in educational institutions demands educators acquire new sets of skills via continuous reflective practices. Hence, educators in higher education institutions are actively involved in research-driven teaching and learning practices. This change of role from mere content delivery to learning facilitators could be better achieved through a strong research-driven community of practice. Preparing 21st Century Teachers for Teach Less, Learn More (TLLM) Pedagogies is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on the application of practice-based learning techniques in higher education institutions. This publication establishes a platform for academics to share their best practices to promote teach less, learn more pedagogies and learn reciprocally from the community of practice. While highlighting topics such as interactive learning, experiential technology, and logical thinking skills, this book is ideally designed for teachers, instructional designers, higher education faculty, deans, researchers, professionals, universities, academicians, and students seeking current research on transformative learning and future teaching practices.

Book Summary:

This book explores the changing patterns of higher education in England in the twentieth century, the types of institutions and the emergence of a 'system' of education. At the same time it traces the relationship between the writer-advocates of higher education and the changing world of higher education and its contexts. There is therefore an interrelated story of higher education, the writers, their messages, their backgrounds and ideologies, the audiences they intend to address, and the impacts of the state and other external forces. It is likely to appeal to higher education academics and administrators, politicians and other policy makers, staff and students on higher degree and professional programmes. It should be read by anyone who cares about English Universities and their future.
