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)

"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. It proposes new standards for assessing scholarship and evaluating faculty with special emphasis on methods for documenting effective scholarship. Based on the findings of the Carnegie Foundation's National Survey on the Reexamination of Faculty Roles and Rewards, this is an excellent resource for anyone engaged in the debate about creating institutional standards of rigor and quality in our colleges and universities."--Jacket

The Control of the campus : a report on the governance of higher education( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governance in U.S. higher education is discussed, based on a 1982 survey of decision making in higher education with attention to its roots, the effects of current conditions on decision-making arrangements, and a possible governance framework for the future. While both private and public education are considered, the public sector is emphasized. Governance is defined as both formal decision arrangements and informal procedures by which standards are maintained. Information was obtained from a survey of decision-making in state higher education agencies, flagship universities, four-year colleges, and two-year colleges. After discussing the mission of universities, the tradition of self-regulation in American higher education is examined, including the governing board and voluntary accreditation. Also covered are outside governance connections (the state, the federal government, and the courts) that have significantly altered the mission and governance of higher education. It is concluded that, on balance, higher education's partnership with governments on both state and national levels has generated far more benefits than it has administrative burdens. However, because external influences on academic governance should not be allowed to overwhelm internal governance structures, colleges are urged to strengthen self-regulation capacity, to take leadership roles, and to revitalize their historic governance tradition. The survey questionnaire is included, together with a list of participating institutions and agencies. (SW) reprinted from ERIC
Campus life : in search of community by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

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

6 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 680 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)
The learning industry : education for adult workers by Nell Eurich( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on the connection between education and the world of work and the urgency of the endeavor to educate the work force. Part I considers the resources for adult learning in the United States, with a focus on the major providers outside the traditional education system. Technological resources that can extend educational opportunities and reach more workers are then analyzed. Examples of each medium's use are given, and its limitations and effectiveness for instruction are charted. One new development is given special attention: artificial intelligence as an aid in training and education. Part ii describes workers' training opportunities. It looks first at the skilled trades and technical fields: construction workers, office workers, administrative assistants, information systems technicians, and factory workers encountering computer-integrated manufacturing systems. Next, the education of managers is considered. Finally, updating knowledge of advanced professionals is examined. Examples from various providers show contributions toward available opportunities. Part iii deals with those whom training programs fail to reach or serve adequately: dislocated workers, unemployed youth, immigrants and refugees, and welfare recipients. The report concludes that the issues call for public responsibility and action. Federal, state, and private initiatives are urged. Endnotes for each chapter and an index are appended. (Ylb)

A new agenda for higher education : shaping a life of the mind for practice by William M Sullivan( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A New Agenda for Higher Education, the authors endorse higher education's utility for enhancing the practical as well as intellectual dimensions of life by developing a third, different conception of educational purpose. Based on The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching seminar that brought together educators from six professional fields with faculty from the liberal arts and sciences, A New Agenda for Higher Education proposes an educational aim of "practical reason," focusing on the interdependence of liberal education and professional training." "The book includes case studies of instructors from a wide array of disciplines including those who educate their students for practical responsibility. The authors document the process by which they learned to collaborate with one another across fields and, in the end, produced a new discourse of practical reason."--Jacket

Into the classroom : developing the scholarship of teaching and learning by Thomas Hatch( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the development of the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Into the Classroom clearly shows the advantages of bringing teaching into the public arena and making it possible for many people to see the nature and quality of the teaching that goes on inside schools. Once teaching is more public we can create unprecedented opportunities for teachers to learn from one another and for others to participate constructively in supporting and improving schools. Into the Classroom outlines the myriad issues that must be addressed in order for the teaching profession to become a true learning profession."--Jacket
The formation of scholars : rethinking doctoral education for the twenty-first century by George E Walker( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book explores the current state of doctoral education in the United States and offers a plan for increasing the effectiveness of doctoral education. Programs must grapple with questions of purpose. The authors examine practices and elements of doctoral programs and show how they can be made more powerful by relying on principles of progressive development, integration, and collaboration. They challenge the traditional apprenticeship model and offer an alternative in which students learn while apprenticing with several faculty members. The authors persuasively argue that cre
Opening up education : the collective advancement of education through open technology, open content, and open knowledge by Toru Iiyoshi( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Given the abundance of open education initiatives that aim to make educational assets freely available online, the time seems ripe to explore the potential of open education to transform the economics and ecology of education. Despite the diversity of tools and resources already available—from well-packaged course materials to simple games, for students, self-learners, faculty, and educational institutions—we have yet to take full advantage of shared knowledge about how these are being used, what local innovations are emerging, and how to learn from and build on the experiences of others. Opening Up Education argues that we must develop not only the technical capability but also the intellectual capacity for transforming tacit pedagogical knowledge into commonly usable and visible knowledge: by providing incentives for faculty to use (and contribute to) open education goods, and by looking beyond institutional boundaries to connect a variety of settings and open source entrepreneurs. These essays by leaders in open education describe successes, challenges, and opportunities they have found in a range of open education initiatives. They approach—from both macro and micro perspectives—the central question of how open education tools, resources, and knowledge can improve the quality of education. The contributors (from leading foundations, academic institutions, associations, and projects) discuss the strategic underpinnings of their efforts first in terms of technology, then content, and finally knowledge. They also address the impact of their projects, and how close they come to achieving a vision of sustainable, transformative educational opportunities that amounts to much more than pervasive technology."--Publisher description

"Emerging from a study of physician education by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Educating Physicians calls for a major overhaul of the present approach to preparing doctors for their careers. The text addresses key issues for the future of the field and takes a comprehensive look at the most pressing concerns in physician education today. Like the Carnegie Foundation's revolutionizing Flexner Report of 1910, Educating Physicians is destined to change the way administrators and faculty in medical schools and programs prepare their physicians for the future"--Provided by publisher
