Scholarship reconsidered : priorities of the professoriate by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report on the professoriate in American higher education explores how the use of faculty time is rewarded and, especially, what activities of the professoriate are most highly prized. Changes in the work of higher education institutions through the years--its movement from teaching to service and then research, are noted, as are conflicts resulting from institutions attempting to achieve competing goals. Concern is raised regarding the emphasis on research and publication for academic advancement. Four general views of scholarship are proposed: discovery, integration, application, and teaching. Institutions are encouraged to stress their unique qualities and strengths, and to reconsider the narrowness of the faculty reward system. The report's seven chapters have the following titles: "Scholarship over Time"; "Enlarging the Perspective"; "a Mosaic of Talent"; "The Creativity Contract"; "The Campuses: Diversity with Dignity"; "a New Generation of Scholars"; and "Scholarship and Community." An appendix provides results of a 1989 national survey of faculty which addressed attitudes toward factors facilitating promotion and tenure, personal job satisfaction, and other job characteristics. Also provided in appendixes are chapter by chapter technical notes and a key to the Carnegie Classifications. Approximately 100 references are included. (Db)
High school : a report on secondary education in America by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performance of the American high school as an institution is discussed, based on a study of U.S. secondary education conducted by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Attention is directed to students, teachers, the principal, the classroom, and the curricula. Field studies were conducted at 15 public high schools, which were chosen to represent a cross-section of schools. Attention is directed to the core curricula, which consists of courses in English, literature, the arts, foreign language, history, civics, science, mathematics, technology, and health. Additional topics include the following: student aptitude test scores, secondary school course requirements, the importance of literacy, the transition to work and further learning, high school instruction and the conditions of teaching, teacher salaries, teacher preparation and certification, technology and schools, students as volunteers in the school and other institutions, the leadership role of the principal, gifted and high-risk students, college-school connections, school-corporation connections, and the public commitment to excellence in schools. Recommendations for each of these areas are offered, and information on the Carnegie study is appended, along with a bibliography. (Sw)
A quest for common learning : the aims of general education by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

12 editions published between 1081 and 1990 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five chapters in this monograph discuss current issues in general education. Chapter I examines the weakness of general education programming, comparing general education to a spare room that has no agreed upon function. Chapter ii notes the recent surge of interest in general education; examines the variety of social and educational problems general education is being called upon to solve; and compares this resurgence of interest with two earlier general education movements in the 20th Century. Drawing upon this historical analysis, Chapter iii argues that the fundamental rationale for general education lies in the need to help students in today's fragmented society understand the human community to which they are accountable. Chapter iv critically examines current general education practices in terms of: course content; the place of general education in the curriculum; and the information, attitudes, and values students are expected to acquire through general education courses. Finally, Chapter v proposes a structure for general education curricula based on six areas of shared human experience: language, membership in groups and institutions, the activities of production and consumption, the scientific workings of the natural world, history, and the development of values and beliefs. Chapter v also discusses alternative delivery systems for general education and the receptiveness of students and faculty to increased general education programming. (Jp)

"Begun under the oversight of Ernest L. Boyer and completed by authors Glassick, Huber, and Maeroff, Scholarship Assessed examines the changing nature of scholarship in today's colleges and universities.

Ready to learn : a mandate for the nation by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has proposed a 10-year campaign to enable the country to meet the national education goal of having every child start school ready to learn. The campaign has a 7-step agenda. First, every child must have a healthy birth, and be well-nourished and well-protected in the early years of life. The second step involves parent education and empowerment. Parents must provide their children with a secure environment that encourages language development. Third, high quality preschool programs that provide good care and address all dimensions of school readiness must be available. Fourth, workplace policies must be flexible in meeting families' needs, supplying child care services, and giving parents time with their young children. The fifth step involves the development of educational and enriching television programming. The sixth step calls for neighborhoods to provide children with safe places for play and learning. Finally, intergenerational programs that give children a sense of security and continuity must be implemented. Recommendations related to each of the seven steps are offered. Appendixes include the results of a 1991 survey of kindergarten teachers and technical notes concerning the survey. (Bc)

Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate, Expanded Edition by Ernest L Boyer( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shifting faculty roles in a changing landscape. Ernest L. Boyer's landmark book Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate challenged the publish-or-perish status quo that dominated the academic landscape for generations. His powerful and enduring argument for a new approach to faculty roles and rewards continues to play a significant part of the national conversation on scholarship in the academy. Though steeped in tradition, the role of faculty in the academic world has shifted significantly in recent decades. The rise of the non-tenure-track class of professors is well documented. If the historic rule of promotion and tenure is waning, what role can scholarship play in a fragmented, unbundled academy? Boyer offers a still much-needed approach. He calls for a broadened view of scholarship, audaciously refocusing its gaze from the tenure file and to a wider community. This expanded edition offers, in addition to the original text, a critical introduction that explores the impact of Boyer's views, a call to action for applying Boyer's message to the changing nature of faculty work, and a discussion guide to help readers start a new conversation about how Scholarship Reconsidered applies today
Building community : a new future for architecture education and practice : a special report by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the problems and possibilities of architecture education as it has evolved in the United States and proposes a new framework for renewing architecture education and practice. In order to assess the need for reform in architecture education, students and alumni from 15 representative campuses were surveyed as to whether they would attend their School of Architecture again. Survey questions also dealt with preparation of graduates for their profession, salary expectations, reasons for entering the architecture profession, feelings about the profession, and the School of Architecture's reputation on the university campus. A model of architecture education based on seven separate but interlocking priorities was proposed: (1) an enriched mission; (2) a more inclusive institutional context based on the principle of diversity with dignity; (3) a goal of standards without standardization; (4) an architecture curriculum that is better integrated with knowledge both within and outside the architecture discipline; (5) establishment of a supportive climate for learning; (6) a more unified profession based on partnership between schools and the profession; and (7) preparation of architects for lives of civic engagement. (Contains reference notes for each chapter.) (Ck)
Ernest L. Boyer, selected speeches, 1979-1995 by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shortly before his death in December 1995, Dr. Ernest Boyer (former President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teachers); working in consultation with his wife, Kay, developed a list of speeches from his Carnegie years that touched on several of the abiding principles underpinning his work. Many of the speeches chosen for this collection were delivered during the first half of the 1990s, an especially prolific period for Dr. Boyer and the Foundation. After the Foreword (Lauren Maidment Green), the collection is divided into three major themes. The first section, "Schools," includes: (1) "Ready to Learn: a Mandate for the Nation" (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, February 17, 1993); (2) "The Basic School" (National Association of Elementary School Principals, April 11, 1995); (3) "High School: Thoughts on the Great Debate of 1983-84" (Association for the Advancement of International Education, February 21, 1984); and (4) "School Reform in Perspective" (Education Writers Association, April 16, 1993). The next section, "Colleges and Universities," includes: (5) "a College of Quality" (Association of American Colleges, January 14, 1988); (6) "a Community of Scholars" (The Emory Symposium, April 14, 1994); and (7) "The Scholarship of Engagement" (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, October 11, 1995). The final section, "Challenges and Connections," contains: (8) "a Partnership: The Schooling of the Teacher" (a National Conference of Chief State School Officers and College and University Presidents, February 17, 1983); (9)"Making the Connections" (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, March 17, 1993); (10) "Teaching about Religion in Public Schools" (The American Academy of Religion, November 24, 1991); (11) "Lifelong Learning in the Arts" (National Endowment for the Arts, April 16, 1994); and (12) "New Technologies and the Public Interest" (The New York Times, December 13, 1994). (Contains 36 references.) a bibliography listing books written by Ernest Boyer as well as books published by the Foundation between 1981-1997 is included. (Nd)
The Monday morning imagination : report from the Boyer Workshop on State University Systems by Martin Kaplan( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even in higher education there is a disjunction between the realities of Monday morning--with its budget crunches, operational constraints, and internecine squabbles--and the world of the imagination. However, the separation of the two realms is neither necessary nor helpful. The focus of this point of view is on the problems and potentials of multi-campus public higher education systems in the United States, where more than ten percent of college students are enrolled. What happens when chancellors, whose world is quintessentially one of Monday mornings, are invited to be speculative, imaginative, and creative? During the summer of 1975, top administrators from a number of large state university systems met for two weeks with leaders in a wide spectrum of societal sectors. These individuals were asked to turn certain assumptions on their head: that large university systems stifle diversity, diminish institutional autonomy, encourage bureaucratic rigidity, and suppress change. Discussion proceeded from the positive premise that multi-campus universities can be the makers and movers of educational change. Contributors of the resulting essays are: Ernest L. Boyer, Craig K. Comstock, C. Peter McGrath, Donald K. Smith, Robert B. Mautz, Durward Long, Adam Yarmolinsky, Loren Baritz, Elizabeth McCormack, David Halliburton, Ernest A. Lynton, James Hoge, Nancy Tapper, and R.E. Lieuallen. (Mse)
