"Dee Fink challenges our conventional assumptions and practicesand offers an insightful approach to expanding our learning goals,making higher education more meaningful. This is a gem of a bookthat every college teacher should read." —Ken Bain,author, What the Best College Students Do Since the original publication of L. Dee Fink's CreatingSignificant Learning Experiences, higher education hascontinued to move in two opposite directions: more institutionsencourage faculty to focus on research, obtaining grants, andpublishing, while accreditation agencies, policy-makers, andstudents themselves emphasize the need for greater attention to thequality of teaching and learning. Now the author has updated his bestselling classic, providingbusy faculty with invaluable conceptual and procedural tools forinstructional design. Step by step, Fink shows how to use ataxonomy of significant learning and systematically combine thebest research-based practices for learning-centered teaching with ateaching strategy in a way that results in powerful learningexperiences. This edition addresses new research on how people learn, activelearning, and student engagement; includes illustrative examplesfrom online teaching; and reports on the effectiveness of Fink'stime-tested model. Fink also explores recent changes in highereducation nationally and internationally and offers more provenstrategies for dealing with student resistance to innovativeteaching. Tapping into the knowledge, tools, and strategies in CreatingSignificant Learning Experiences empowers educators tocreatively design courses that will result in significant learningfor their students. "As thought-provoking and inspiring today as it was when it wasfirst published, it is a 'must' for anyone serious about creatingcourses that challenge students to learn deeply."—Elizabeth F. Barkley, author, Student EngagementTechniques

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

Selbstliebe statt Perfektionismus In einer Welt, in der die Furcht zu versagen zur zweiten Natur geworden ist, erscheint Verletzlichkeit als gefährlich. Doch das Gegenteil ist der Fall: Die renommierte Psychologin Brené Brown zeigt, dass Verletzlichkeit der Ort ist, wo Liebe, Zugehörigkeit, Freude und Kreativität entstehen. Unter ihrer behutsamen Anleitung erforschen wir unsere Ängste und entwickeln eine machtvolle neue Vision, die uns ermutigt, Großes zu wagen.

Die Arbeit hat sich im letzten Jahrzehnt weiter verändert. Bereits in 50 Jahren werden weniger als 10 Prozent der Bevölkerung ausreichen, um alle Güter und Dienstleistungen bereitzustellen. Die Konsequenzen für die sozialen Sicherungssysteme sind dramatisch, soziale Konlikte scheinen unvermeidlich. Dass "es nicht mehr genug Arbeit für alle geben wird" erkannte Jeremy Rifkin bereits in seinem Weltbesteller Das Ende der Arbeit - und seine Thesen sind heute aktueller denn je. In der Neuausgabe des in 16 Sprachen übersetzten Bestsellers entwickelt Rifkin seine radikalen Vorschläge weiter und zeigt mit gewohntem wirtschaftlichen und politischen Sachverstand, wie wir verhindern können, dass uns die Arbeit ausgeht. "Rifkins Buch wird uns noch lange beschäftigen." Süddeutsche Zeitung

An acclaimed educator presents hands-on advice on teaching that meets today's emphasis on learning outcomes and assessment. This book is informed by the most up-to-date research on how people learn. It is suitable for all instructors in higher education - as well as high school teachers. Laurie Richlin has been running a workshop on course design for higher education for over fifteen years, modifying and improving it progressively from the feedback of participants, and from what they in turn have taught her. Her goals are to enable participants to appropriately select teaching strategies, to design and create the conditions and experiences that will enable their students to learn; and in the process to develop the scholarly scaffold to document their ongoing course design and achievements. This book familiarizes readers with course design elements; enables them to understand themselves as individuals and teachers; know their students; adapt to the learning environment; design courses that promote deep learning; and assess the impact of the teaching practices and design choices they have made. She provides tools to create a full syllabus, offers guidance on such issues as framing questions that encourage discussion, developing assignments with rubrics, and creating tests. The book is packed with resources that will help readers structure their courses and constitute a rich reference of proven ideas. What Laurie Richlin offers is a intellectual framework, set of tools and best practices to enable readers to design and continually reassess their courses to better meet their teaching goals and the learning needs of their students.

Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.

Bring pedagogy and cognitive science to online learning environments Online Teaching at Its Best: A Merger of Instructional Design with Teaching and Learning Research is the scholarly resource for online learning that faculty, instructional designers, and administrators have long been awaiting. Over 70 percent of degree-granting institutions offer online classes, and while technical resources abound, the courses often fall short of integrating the best practices in online pedagogy, even if they comply with online course design standards. Typically these standards omit the best practices in teaching and learning and the principles from cognitive science, leaving students struggling to keep the pace, understand the material, and fulfill their true potential as learners. This book fills the gap, providing evidence-based practices for online teaching, online course design, and online student motivation integrated with pedagogical and cognitive science to help you build the distance learning courses and programs your students deserve. As more and more students opt for distance learning, it's up to designers and instructors to rethink traditional methods and learn to work more effectively within the online learning environment, and up to administrators to provide the needed leadership. Online Teaching at Its Best provides practical, real-world advice grounded in educational science to help online instructors, instructional designers, and administrators deliver an exceptional learning experience. Adopt new pedagogical techniques designed specifically for online learning environments Ensure strong course alignment and effective student learning for online classes Increase student retention, build necessary support structures, and train faculty more effectively Integrate research-based course design and cognitive psychology into graduate or undergraduate programs Distance is no barrier to a great education; what do stand in the way are inadequate online course design and implementation and deficient faculty training and support—all of which administrators can mitigate. Online Teaching at Its Best will help you ensure that your online classes measure up to the rigor and quality of excellence in teaching and assessment, build in the personal touch for developing a learning community and equip your students to succeed in the next challenge.

Higher education today is being called on to deliver a new and more powerful kind of education, one that prepares students to be more engaged citizens, better equipped to solve complex problems at work and better prepared to lead meaningful lives individually. To respond to this call, teachers in colleges and universities need to learn how to design more powerful kinds of learning into their courses. In 2003, Dee Fink published a seminal book, Creating Significant Learning Experiences, that offered teachers two major tools for meeting this need: the Taxonomy of Significant Learning and the model of Integrated Course Design. Since that time, educators around the world have found Fink?s ideas both visionary and inspiring. This issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning contains multiple stories of how college-level teachers have used these ideas in a variety of teaching situations, with subject matter ranging from the sciences to the humanities. Their conclusion? The ideas in Fink?s book truly make a difference. When used properly, they lead to major improvements in the level of student engagement and the quality of student learning! This is the 119th volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

Although the field of child and adolescent development seems to be an easy one in which to provide active learning opportunities to students, few textbooks currently exist that actually do this. Child Development: An Active Learning Approach includes the following key features: - Challenging Misconceptions: true/false or multiple choice tests are incorporated at the beginning of each chapter to specifically address topics that are sources of misunderstanding amongst students. - Activities with children and adolescents: 'hands-on' activities that complement the ideas of the text, as an integral part of the text, rather than as “add-ons” at the end of each chapter. - 'The journey of research' will introduce students to the process of research that leads from early findings to more refined outcomes through real-life examples - 'Test Yourself' sections include activities that cause students to reflect on an issue through their own experiences to bring about increased motivation and understanding of a specific topic. - The Instructor's Resource CD-ROM includes a computerized test bank, PowerPoint Slides, sample syllabi, suggested in-class learning activities, and homework assignments. - The Student Study Site includes interactive videos, self-quizzes, key term flashcards, SAGE journal articles with accompanying exercises, and web links with accompanying exercises.

Critically examine the intersections of learning and leadership. Using L. Dee Fink's taxonomy of signicant learning as a scaffold, experts in leadership education explain connections between emerging scholarship of teaching and learning and current trends in leadership, how to develop a more complex understanding of the levers of leadership learning, the environments that promote meaningful and measurable leadership learning, and the evidence behind such a practice. This volume examines: the role of leadership educator, the roles of authenticity (being true to one’s self) and criticality in education (interrogating beliefs and questioning power dynamics), select learning theories and their implications for leadership learning, and strategies for constructing leadership-related learning outcomes and assessing leadership learning. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.

Bernie Sanders zeigt, dass eine wahre gesellschaftliche Erneuerung nur von links geschehen kann. Seine Ideen eines modernen demokratischen Sozialismus sind wichtiger als je zuvor – für die USA und für die ganze Welt. In der führenden Nation des Westens spielen die Belange der Mittelschicht und der Geringverdiener, aber auch die des Umweltschutzes und der Minder heiten eine empörend geringe Rolle. Doch der Sozialist Bernie Sanders kämpft weiter für eine politische Revolution: für eine Ökonomie, die nicht nur Jobs schafft, sondern auch für gerechte Löhne sorgt; für ein Gesundheitswesen, das allen zugute kommt; für den nachhaltigen Schutz unserer Umwelt — und gegen jede Form von Rassismus. Nur so wird es gelingen, den USA und der ganzen Welt eine bessere Zukunft zu schaffen. Sanders’ Buch ist die linkspolitische Agenda für alle, die mit dem Primat der Profitgier und der Willkür des Establishments nicht einverstanden sind und nach neuen Wegen jenseits des Raubtierkapitalismus suchen.

Online Learning in Music: Foundations, Frameworks, and Practices offers fresh insights into the growth of online learning in music, perspectives on theoretical models for design and development of online courses, principles for good practice in online education, and an agenda for future research. Author Judith Bowman provides a complete overview of online education in music, including guidelines and accreditation standards for online instruction as well as a look at current research on online learning in music. She also explores several theoretical models for online course design, development, and implementation, before presenting a creative approach to online course design, both for fully online and also for blended courses. As a whole, the book challenges stereotypical views of professors as "sage on the stage" or "guide on the side," characterizing the online professor instead as Director of Learning. Necessary reading for all who work in online learning in music, it also suggests important ways both to prevent problems and also to resolve those that do arise.
