Good practice in student affairs : principles to foster student learning by Gregory S Blimling( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, based on the conclusions of a study of practices in college student affairs, presents nine papers which identify the best practices in student affairs, review research used to define the best practices, and give examples of how to use these practices in the field. The book is based on a 1996 meeting of an interdisciplinary study group which identified seven principles of good practices. The papers are: (1) "Identifying the Principles That Guide Student Affairs Practice" (Gregory S. Blimling and Elizabeth J. Whitt); (2) "Engaging Students in Active Learning" (Marcia B. Baxter Magolda); (3) "Helping Students Develop Coherent Values and Ethical Standards" (Jon C. Dalton); (4) "Setting the Bar High to Promote Student Learning" (George D. Kuh); (5) "Using Systematic Inquiry to Improve Performance" (Ernest T. Pascarella and Elizabeth J. Whitt); (6) "Using Resources To Achieve Institutional Missions and Goals" (Linda Reisser and Larry D. Roper); (7) "Forging Educational Partnerships that Advance Student Learning" (Charles C. Schroeder); (8) "Creating Inclusive Communities" (Johnetta Cross Brazzell and Linda Reisser); and (9) "Using Principles To Improve Practice" (Gregory S. Blimling and Elizabeth J. Whitt). An appendix lists and briefly explains the seven principles. (Contains approximately 300 references.) (Db)

Giving voice to critical campus issues : qualitative research in student affairs by Kathleen Manning( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents six qualitative research studies written by graduate students in the Higher Education and Student Affairs masters program at the University of Vermont. The papers provide case studies concerning suicide, acquaintance rape, alcohol-related student death, classism, adult children of alcoholics, and multiracial identity. Following an introduction, a chapter by the editor, Kathleen Manning, identifies unifying themes: identity; the complexity of campus life; links to considerations beyond oneself; complexity, distinctiveness, and dynamism; and expression of unheard, unacknowledged voices. The second chapter, also by Kathleen Manning, explains the basics of constructivist research, the methodology used in the following papers. Titles and authors of these papers are: (1) "The Griefwork of Suicide Survivors" (Kelly Haggerty Ahuna); (2) "The Languages of Acquaintance Rape" (Melissa Regan); (3) "Picking Up the Pieces: a Case Study of the Death of a Resident" (Elizabeth A. Skeffington); (4) "Respect and Dignity in the Free Marketplace of Ideas: Working Class Resistance within the University" (Michael Paul Wong); (5) "Footsteps of Courage: a Case Study of Felice" (Jennifer Hart); and (6) "You Know I'm Triracial, Right? Multiracial Student Identity Development and the College Experience" (Tim Wilson). A concluding chapter, by Manning, discusses the ethics of this type of research.

Shifting paradigms in student affairs : culture, context, teaching, and learning by Jane Fried( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College housing as learning centers by Harold C Riker( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two primary functions of college housing--as distinguished from other kinds--are first, to provide a satisfactory place for students to live and second, to help students to learn and grow, since this housing is part of an educational institution. The performance record of college housing is marred by shallow concepts of its role as an educational facility, hollow lip-service to its uses as part of the institutional program, and limited administrative initiative or creativity in the development of a housing program. Some of today's housing is of incredibly poor quality, no because of its construction or equipment, but because it is inappropriate for the college and the students who live there. In order to meet their responsibilities for conserving and developing this nation's vital human resources, college and universities must make maximum use of all the facilities at their disposal
Testing for higher education : cultural perspective and future focus by James Ralph Barclay( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with the important problems of the transition of hundreds of thousands of high school youth to the collegiate setting. It is addressed to high school personnel, college admissions officers, counselors, and all who are interested in higher education. Its purpose is to examine the role of testing as a technique of assessment used in college admissions. The concern is with the use of tests as predictors of success in college, the clarification of criteria used to evaluate effective human behavior in that setting, and the broader implications of cultural and philosophical dimensions of testing and test usage. Tests are one of many counseling tools--with more accurate information, high school students and their parents can make better decisions about a subject that is vital to the course of their lives

The purpose of this document is to re-examine some widely accepted ideas about conventional teaching and learning, and to question whether current organizational patterns in higher education support student learning and development in todayʹs environment.
