Education and Race from Empire to Brexit
  Sally Tomlinson/ 9781447345848/ Price:¢G 22.99
 
Covering the period from the height of Empire to Brexit and beyond, this book shows how the vote to leave the European Union increased hostilities towards racial and ethnic minorities and migrants. Concentrating on the education system, it asks whether populist views that there should be a British identity - or a Scottish, Irish or Welsh one - will prevail. Alternatively arguments based on equality, human rights and economic needs may prove more powerful. It covers events in politics and education that have left most white British people ignorant of the Empire, the often brutal de-colonisation and the arrival of immigrants from post-colonial and European countries. It discusses politics and practices in education, race, religion and migration that have left schools and universities failing to engage with a multiracial and multicultural society.

VA08-918 Critical Race Theory in Education, 4-Vols/Set.
  David Gillborn/ 9781138848276/ Price:¢G 800.00
 
Book Cover Now, answering the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of this sometimes shocking and often contentious body of thought, Routledge announces a new title in its Major Themes in Education series. In four volumes, Critical Race Theory in Education provides a unique ¡¥mini library¡¦ that encompasses the very best CRT scholarship in education. As with other titles in the series, the collection¡¦s hallmark is its combination of the canonical and the cutting edge: every selection is either an established ¡¥classic¡¦ or significantly challenges and advances thinking on current issues. The first volume (¡¥Tenets of Critical Race Theory in Education¡¦) sets out the core themes that distinguish the CRT approach. Volume II (¡¥Whiteness and White Supremacy¡¦), meanwhile, explores the construction and maintenance of assumptions and practices that take for granted the elevated status of white people¡¦s interests and perspectives. The third volume (¡¥Global and Specific: CRT Off-shoot Movements¡¦) focuses on the development of CRT as an approach with an international reach, while simultaneously retaining space for distinctive developments that prioritize individual social groups within their particular historic, cultural, and economic contexts. The collection¡¦s final volume (¡¥Doing CRT in Education¡¦) is dedicated to questions of method, ethics, and praxis in the everyday struggle to advance research and effect genuine anti-racist change amid systems that normalize racism and deny the legitimacy of race-conscious scholarship.

There is no simple definition of the concept of quality in education, though numerous models and theories have been devised. Toward Quality Assurance and Excellence of Higher Education is a new episode of the Quality Assurance perception in higher education, which identifies the quality culture and orientation from the beginning, integrating crucial factors to build a "pyramid" of higher education excellence. The book compares concepts from the main theories of Quality Assurance, management and control when they are applied to educational systems in higher education. The book also presents a new model of excellence in higher education. Excellence is an architecture of building blocks that includes process performance, effectiveness, harmony and collaboration, and these bocks should be incorporated in a quality-oriented concept for sustainable excellence of higher education. The model integrates four main facets: the Educational System, Quality Assurance Managing and Control, Strategic Planning and Globalization. Also presented are international "best-practices" in quality assurance in higher education, from Japan and Finland.

The Soul of a University: Why Excellence is Not Enough
  Chris Brink/ 9781529200348/ Price:¢G 14.99
 
Book Cover What is the role of a university in society? In this innovative book, Chris Brink offers the timely reminder that it should have social purpose, as well as achieve academic excellence. The current obsession with rankings and league tables has altered our idea of higher education. This focus on status has perpetuated inequality and is preventing social mobility. How can we re-establish universities¡¦ societal purpose? The solution lies with going back to two key questions: not only ¡¥what are we good at?¡¦, but also ¡¥what are we good for?¡¦. Drawing on the ideas of Plato and Aristotle and featuring historical and academic vignettes, this book shows how universities can ¡V and should - respond to societal challenges and promote positive social change.

  Kalwant Bhopal/ 9781447335979/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
Book Cover Why and how do those from black and minority ethnic communities continue to be marginalised?

Who are Universities for?: Re-making Higher Education
  Josie McLellan/ 9781529200386/ Price:¢G 12.99
 
The university system is no longer fit for purpose. UK higher education was designed for much smaller numbers of students and a very different labour market. Students display worrying levels of mental health issues, exacerbated by unprecedented levels of debt, and the dubious privilege of competing for poorly-paid graduate internships. Meanwhile who goes to university is still too often determined by place of birth, gender, class or ethnicity. Who are universities for? argues for a large-scale shake up of how we organise higher education, how we combine it with work, and how it fits into our lives. It includes radical proposals for reform of the curriculum and how we admit students to higher education, with part-time study (currently in crisis in England) becoming the norm. A short, polemical but also deeply practical book, Who are universities for? offers concrete solutions to the problems facing UK higher education and a way forward for universities to become more inclusive and more responsive to local and global challenges.

VA08-741 Education and Religion, 4-Vols/Set.
  Arthur, James/ 9781138827769/ Price:¢G 940.00
 
Book Cover The intersection of education and religion raises complex questions and provokes heated¡Xsometimes fraught¡Xdebates. Fundamentally, what is the role of religious education in national curricula? And how especially does religious education work in countries that seek explicitly to separate church from state? What is the relationship between research and classroom practice? And what of religious education in non-school settings? What place should so-called faith schools (such as Brooklyn¡¦s Khalil Gibran International Academy) have in modern plural societies? And, more broadly, how far should publicly funded education officials seek to accommodate the views and feelings of religious communities? This new four-volume Routledge collection addresses these and other controversies. Edited by two leading scholars, Education and Religion meets the need for an authoritative reference work to codify and make sense of the field¡¦s burgeoning literature. The editors have drawn on the most important and influential research from a broad range of countries and perspectives to create a one-stop ¡¥mini library¡¦. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editors, Education and Religion is an essential addition to Routledge¡¦s Major Themes in Education series. It is destined to be valued by educationalists and scholars working in related areas as a vital reference and research tool.

SA08-467 Computer-Driven Instructional Design with INTUITEL: An Intelligent Tutoring Interface for Technology-Enhanced Learning.
  Fuchs, Kevin/ 9788793519510/ Price:EUR 70.00
 
Book Cover NTUITEL is a research project that was co-financed by the European Commission with the aim to advance state-of-the-art e-learning systems via addition of guidance and feedback for learners. Through a combination of pedagogical knowledge, measured learning progress and a broad range of environmental and background data, INTUITEL systems will provide guidance towards an optimal learning pathway. This allows INTUITEL-enabled learning management systems to offer learners automated, personalised learning support so far only provided by human tutors INTUITEL is - in the first place - a design pattern for the creation of adaptive e-learning systems. It focuses on the reusability of existing learning material and especially the annotation with semantic meta data. INTUITEL introduces a novel approach that describes learning material as well as didactic and pedagogical meta knowledge by the use of ontologies. Learning recommendations are inferred from these ontologies during runtime. This way INTUITEL solves a common problem in the field of adaptive systems: it is not restricted to a certain field. Any content from any domain can be annotated. The INTUITEL research team also developed a prototype system. Both the theoretical foundations and how to implement your own INTUITEL system are discussed in this book.
   
SA08-467 Education Policy and Racial Biopolitics in Multicultural Cities.
  Gulson, Kalervo N./ 9781447320074/ Price:¢G 70.00
 
Book Cover he empirical focus of this book is on the twenty year struggle by parents and members of the Black community in Toronto to introduce an Africentric Alternative School (AAS) with Black-focused curricula. It brings together a seemingly disparate series of events that emerged from equity and multicultural narratives about the establishment of the school ¡V violence, anti-racism and race-based statistics, policy entrepreneurs, and the re-birth of alternative schools in Toronto - to illustrate how these events ostensibly functioned through neoliberal choice mechanisms and practices. Gulson and Webb show how school choice can represent and manifest the hopes and fears, contestations and settlements of contemporary racial biopolitics of education in multicultural cities.
   
SA08-467 The Education Debate.
  Ball, Stephen J./ 9781447339281/ Price:¢G 13.99
 
Book Cover Since the second edition of this book, the education debate has fiercened. Education policy must ensure economic productivity and competitiveness, but in recent years, debates about its contribution to the worsening of social inequality, particularly in relation to grammar schools, have become increasingly divisive. Ever-changing, stuttering policy can make this a field that's hard to keep track of... a problem that this book solves. Along with extensive updates, this third edition includes a new introduction and updated examples and references throughout. Ball examines new areas of focus, including the emphasis on neuroscience, the increased interest of business in education and the impact of austerity and precarity. Unlike so many other books on education policy, The education debate doesn't simply describe education policy, but captures key debates and themes in this fast-changing field.

SA08-462 Quality in Education. (With DVD)
  / 9781680955651/ Price:US$ 79.95
 
Book Cover The right to education is not only the right to access education but also the right to receive an education of good quality. Education must be available and accessible but also acceptable and adaptable. Learning can occur anywhere, but the positive learning outcomes generally sought by educational systems happen in quality learning environments. Learning environments are made up of physical, psychosocial and service delivery elements. Physical learning environments or the places in which formal learning occurs, range from relatively modern and well-equipped buildings to open-air gathering places. The quality of school facilities seems to have an indirect e ect on learning, an e ect that is hard to measure. The quality of school buildings may be related to other school quality issues, such as the presence of adequate instructional materials and textbooks, working conditions for students and teachers, and the ability of teachers to undertake certain instructional approaches. A good quality education is one that provides all learners with capabilities they require to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful and democratic societies and enhance individual well-being. The learning outcomes that are required vary according to context but at the end of the basic education cycle must include threshold levels of literacy and numeracy, basic scienti c knowledge and life skills including awareness and prevention of disease. Capacity development to improve the quality of teachers and other education stakeholders is crucial throughout this process.

Why Secondary Schools Must Change: How to Make Secondary Education a Better Preparation for Life in the 21st Century
  Peter R. Walker/ 9781447338710/ Price:¢G 19.99
 
Book Cover It¡¦s time to break with a secondary school system which has grown out of the Victorian era and is past its sell-by-date. This book proposes a new approach to reform. Peter Walker argues that we must look again at the symbiotic relationship between our society and the school system. We need different measures of achievement and aspiration if we are to better prepare all young people for life in the 21st century. The book begins by redefining what school is for, then presents 5 elements of a vision for the future of secondary education. Walker illustrates, in three scenarios, how these might form the basis of a future system. Schooling should have more of an impact on a child's education than their family¡¦s wealth and background. It doesn¡¦t at the moment. Let¡¦s have a different kind of debate about our school system.

Vygotsky's Children: Georgetown and Oxbridge Students Meet Urban Youth
  John C. Hirsh/ 9780998147741/ Price:US$ 22.00
 
Book Cover This book is concerned with the ways in which undergraduate students at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Wadham College, Oxford, and Clare College, Cambridge, have worked with ethnic minority K-6 children in a series of university and college programs in Washington and London. The intention of these programs is two-fold: to support the academic work in which the children are engaged, whether by working one-on-one, in a classroom setting, or in small seminar-like groups, and also to show them what higher education is, and can be, in the hope that when the time came their understanding of it, acquired and developed at an early age, might encourage them to proceed onward in their education. The account is told in the first person, from the point-of-view of a Georgetown University professor specializing in English medieval literature but also invested in urban literacy, who, aided by post-doctoral studies at Berkeley, altered the direction of a program already existing at Georgetown University, and subsequently aided in the development of like-programs in Oxford and Cambridge. The book serves two distinct purposes: it describes the purpose and practices of the urban programs with which it is concerned, and it addresses the ways in which these programs sought to encourage and support minority expectation with respect to academic achievement, encounter with others, and, in the London programs, eventual university application.

VSA08-001 Routledge Handbook of International Education and Development.
  McGrath, Simon/ 9780415747547/ Price:¢G 160.00
 
Book Cover This timely Handbook takes stock of the range of debates that characterise the field of international education and development, and suggests key aspects of a research agenda for the next period. It is deliberately divergent in its approach, recognising the major ideological and epistemological divides that characterise a field that draws on many traditions. Leading and emergent voices from different paradigms and contexts are afforded a space to be heard and each section puts current debates in larger historical contexts. The Handbook is divided in four parts and book-ended by an introduction and a conclusion, the latter oriented towards the implications that the volume has for future research agendas. The first part explores major strands of debates about education¡¦s place in development theory. The second acknowledges the disciplining of the field by the education for all movement and examines the place that learning and teaching, and schools play in development. Part three looks beyond schools to consider early years, adult and vocational education but focuses particularly on the return to thinking about higher education's role in development. The final part considers the changing, but still important, role that international cooperation plays in shaping education in developing countries. Featuring over thirty chapters written by leading international and interdisciplinary scholars, the Routledge Handbook of International Education and Development offers the first comprehensive and forward-looking resource for students and scholars.

VA08-737 Education and Technology, 4-Vols/Set.
  Davies, Chris/ 9780415721486/ Price:¢G 940.00
 
Book Cover In the midst of this excitement (and, often, hype), Education and Technology researchers have, via empirical investigation and the development of novel or revised theoretical perspectives, explored the impact of new technologies on learning, pedagogy, design, policy, and the future of educational institutions. Psychology, Computer Science, Sociology, Pedagogical Studies, Communications, and Economics have all contributed to the domain, and connections have begun to be made to create a coherent body of thought and practice. But, while Education and Technology has stimulated a tremendous amount of published material, much of that work has been contaminated by political and commercial interests. Indeed, the dizzying quantity (and variable quality) of much research makes it difficult to discriminate the useful from the tendentious, superficial, and otiose. Now, as part of Routledge¡¦s Major Themes in Education series, the editors of this new collection, two leading scholars from the University of Oxford¡¦s Department of Education and the University¡¦s Internet Institute, have undertaken the task of determining and bringing together in a one-stop resource the major works in Education and Technology. With a full index, and thoughtful introductions, newly written by the editors, Education and Technology will be valued by scholars, students, and policy-makers as a vital and enduring resource.
