Encouraging Diversity in Higher Education: Supporting Student Success provides an overview of the widening participation movement in Higher Education in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and New Zealand. It argues that universities should revitalise their learning and teaching practices to better meet the diverse learning needs of contemporary undergraduate students. Approachable in execution, this book provides an evidence-based set of classroom practices, which readers will readily be able to relate to and use successfully. Answering questions such as: • How can I enrich my undergraduate teaching? • How can I help undergraduate students engage fully with their learning? • How can help undergraduate students to quickly acclimatise to Higher Education? • How can I help undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds excel at university? This book discusses economic and discursive drivers used to increase the numbers of undergraduate students who were the first in their families to enter university, and some of the ways in which universities responded to the growing percentage of such students. In so doing, it considers the learning needs of diverse students, and discusses the views of academic teaching staff who have used transparent pedagogies in their classrooms. Including forty five teaching strategies designed to generate highly engaged, socially inclusive classrooms, this is the first book to offer both a theoretical background of the need to approach learning and teaching in contemporary universities in innovative ways, and a practical, step by step guide to using a suite of transparent pedagogies. These focus on building inclusive classroom communities, generating academic literacies, developing collaborative learning skills, and encouraging students to think critically. This book will be a useful companion for both early career academics and those with experience but dealing with a new student cohort. It will also be of great interest to those teaching or studying the many professional qualifications in tertiary education. Kate Hughes is the President of the Australian Sociological Association (TASA) and Senior Consultant of Teaching and Learning at the Australian Catholic University. She is the co-author of Australian Sociology: A Changing Society, the market leading undergraduate text in Australia, now in its fourth edition.

This volume focuses on selected innovative programs designed to augment the science, engineering, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce through increasing and enhancing the participation of under-represented groups. The programs span the STEM career pathway—primary, secondary, and tertiary education—and professional development and socialization—in the United States, South Africa, and New Zealand. Similarities as well as differences between and among programs across nations will be systematically analyzed for lessons learned. The conceptualization for this volume developed over the past several years during various international conferences—starting in Havana, Cuba in 2006, and continuing at meetings in Japan (2014), South Africa (2013 and 2015), and New Zealand (2015).

Writing Centres in South Africa, and globally, are now well established academic support centres within many universities. Historically tasked with supporting students as they grapple with the demands of academic writing, many centres are now moving beyond their own walls to work with academic tutors, lecturers and departments to rethink the ways in which knowledge is transformed into different kinds of disciplinary writing. This move raises pertinent questions for writing centre directors, tutors/consultants, and for the universities that house them: how does a centre, tasked with supporting more general academic literacy development through writing pedagogies, initiate students into a range of particularised discourse communities? How do writing centre staff and disciplinary lecturers negotiate their shared, and separate, concerns for student learning through collaborative writing development projects? How do writing centres work with assignments and forms of literacy that challenge them to reconfigure their own pedagogical practices and expand their conceptions of writing support? How do writing centres maintain their core focus as they move flexibly beyond their own spaces to understand the nature of disciplinary writing? This collection of essays reflects on the ways in which writing centres in South Africa are working in and across disciplines. Institutional constraints and challenges that arise from these collaborations are addressed and opportunities for transforming teaching and learning spaces are explored. The chapters speak to the global move in higher education to reconsider how knowledge is made, who makes it, and how support and development opportunities for students and lecturers should be created and sustained across the disciplines. This volume contributes to the body of knowledge in the growing field of the scholarship of teaching and learning in higher education in South Africa. It builds on the work of the first collection of such essays: Changing Spaces: Writing Centres and Access to Higher Education (Eds. A. Archer and R. Richards, 2011, SUN PReSS) to understand why working within the disciplines is so critical for writing development in a South African context.

This volume looks forward and re-examines present day education and pedagogical practices in music and dance in the diverse cultural environments found in Oceania. The book also identifies a key issue of how teachers face the prospect of taking a reflexive view of their own cultural legacy in music and dance education as they work from and alongside different cultural worldviews. This key issue, amongst other debates that arise, positions Intersecting Cultures as an innovative text that fills a gap in the current market with highly appropriate and fresh ideas from primary sources. The book offers commentaries that underpin and inform current pedagogy and bigger picture policy for the performing arts in education in Oceania, and in parallel ways in other countries.

English summary: This collection contains 15 essays examining the basic assumptions of science, religion and mathematics. Can we decide what to believe? Why do scientists do experiments and what can their experiments show? Is evolution a scientific theory? Is science a rational enterprise? Should we invent alternatives to unrefuted theories? What is Einstein's influence on philosophy? These and other questions are discussed in papers, speeches and essays for a broader audience, covering main problems in the development of science. The author wants to provoke his readers to enter the now-discredited belief-systems of earlier ages in order to compare these with their own. He thus uses the history of science to reflect on theories of science in the past and the present, using critical rationalism as a tool to enrich our view of the world. German description: Der Band versammelt 15 Essays, die vermeintlich einfachen Fragen aus den Wissenschaften und ihren Erkenntnismoglichkeiten nachgehen, beispielsweise: Konnen wir entscheiden, was wir glauben wollen? Warum experimentieren Wissenschaftler und was zeigen ihre Experimente? Ist die Evolutionstheorie eine wissenschaftliche Theorie? Liefern theologische Ansichten Erklarungen? Wie hat Albert Einstein die Philosophie beeinflusst? Die Erorterungen setzen kein Spezialistenwissen voraus, sie stellen aber einige Selbstverstandlichkeiten unserer alltaglichen Weltorientierung und unseres Blicks auf die Wissenschaften in Frage, indem die historischen Formen der Wissensgewinnung und (kritischer) Rationalitat zum Vergleich herangezogen werden. Theorie und Geschichte der Wissenschaftsformen werden in diesen weltlichen Predigten auf der Grundlage kritisch-rationaler Untersuchung in einen Dialog gebracht. Predigten sind dies im Sinne allgemein verstandlicher Auslegung komplexer Erkenntnisse und darin dem Vorbild Karl Popper folgend.

Boundless Horizons tells the extraordinary story of Marie Clay's lifelong search for new possibilities in teaching young children to read and write. She pursued a tantalising quest: "What is possible for children with reading problems? What would have to change?' Observing young readers in ordinary classrooms she uncovered explanations of how children take on literacy learning and how that learning changes over time. From those discoveries arose the internationally successful literacy intervention for children having temporary difficulty-Reading Recovery.
