The Learning Challenge helps practitioners to make sense of the latest developments in this area and the impact they have on the learning function in their organization. With the help of case studies and interviews from a range of high profile practitioners, The Learning Challenge defines the role the new learning leader and illuminates the practical implications for creating and implementing a learning strategy for the 21st century.

Dialogue is one of the best vehicles for learning how to think, how to be reasonable, how to make moral decisions and how to understand another person's point of view. It is supremely flexible, instructional, collaborative, and rigorous. At its very best, dialogue is one of the best ways for participants to learn good habits of thinking. There is also substantial evidence that teachers currently talk too much in classes, often only waiting .8 seconds after asking a question before jumping in with the answer if a student doesn't quickly volunteer. This book guides teachers through the different types of dialogue and how they can be used to enhance students' learning.

The 'learning society' is not a new idea, although its popularity has grown in recent years with the suggestion that lifelong learning is a condition for economic competitiveness in a global economy, replacing the earlier conception of it as a condition for democratic citizenship. This reader, designed to accompany Module E827 of the MA in Education, critically examines the demographic, technological, economic and cultural challenges which have led to interest in the idea of a learning society, and explores their policy and practical implications for lifelong learning. It also explores and evaluates trends in education and training which support the development of a learning society. Overall, the book provides readers with a range of opinions on the learning society within which broad context they can place their own practice.

If we take a passive view of classroom behavior, we fail in a crucial part of our role as educators: creating a democratic and effective learning environment for a diverse student body. This timely issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning offers creative, thoughtful strategies for promoting civil discourse and resolving conflict when it arises--both in the classroom and in the campus community at-large. The authors recommend constructive responses to disruptive classroom behavior and techniques for encouraging open, respectful discussion of sensitive topics. They also explore institutional approaches to alternative dispute resolution that provide students and faculty a safe, nonjudgmental environment for addressing conflicts. This is the 77th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning.
