9781858565217: Higher Education for the Public Good: Views From the South

Higher education contributes to the public good in many ways. This book argues for a transformational and reflexive approach in which the very nature of the institution, its practices and programs are considered. The chapters illustrate how this is done, discussing philosophical approaches as well as empirical and practical ideas for implementation in the classroom.

The contributors consider the four major aspects of transformation: the institution’s purpose and ethos; its conception of graduate attributes; the way programs and teaching are delivered; and the institution’s approach to academics and their professional development.

The contributions to the volume span three continents. All the authors have some link to South Africa even though several live and work in America or the UK and Europe. This gives the book an international flavor as well as a uniquely southern focus. The contributors include Nwabisa Bangeni (Stellenbosch University), Alejandra Boni (Universidad Politécnica de Valencia), Vivienne Bozalek (University of the Western Cape), Natasha Gordon-Chipembere (University of New York), Lis Lange (Free State University), Lindsey Nicholls (Brunel University), Poul Rohleder (Anglia Ruskin University), Crain Soudien (University of Cape Town), Sharon Subreenduth (Bowling Green State University, Ohio) and Susan Van Schalkwyk and Yusef Waghid (Stellenbosch University).

Review:

The time has come for universities to take sides. They cannot just be players on the field - they need to pick a side. And that side should be the public good. * Professor Russell Botman, Rector, Stellenbosch University *

Book Description Institute of Education Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Higher education contributes to the public good in many ways. This book argues for a transformational and reflexive approach that takes full account of the nature of the university, its practices and programmes. The authors of this inspiring collection discuss philosophical approaches and present empirical and practical ideas for teaching and learning at university for the public good. Four major aspects of transforming universities are explored: the purpose and ethos of the university; its conception of graduate attributes; the way programmes and teaching are delivered; and the institution s approach to academics and their professional development. The book will be indispensable to all universities who are evaluating their own principles and practice. This book is enriched by international perspectives as well as a uniquely southern focus. While some of the authors live and work in America, the UK and other areas of Europe, all have links with South Africa which add insight to their chapters. Bookseller Inventory # AAO9781858565217
