Interpersonal perceptions of teachers, students, and parents; an action-research project for the in-service training of teachers by David H Jenkins( Book )

12 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of an action-research project. Such research is planned to help in the solving of an immediate and practical problem, as well as to advance basic scientific knowledge. This book is also a study in problems of communication. Working together effectively, as all kinds of groups of people must do, requires successful intercommunication of information, understandings, attitudes, and feelings. When any part of this necessary communication breaks down, difficulties multiply. It is really surprising how little people feel free to communicate with others. To a large extent, as Chapter 1 will indicate, we try to do what we think other people expect us to do. But if each individual or group has an incorrect perception of what the other individual or group expects of him, his action, no matter how well performed, will not be the right action. Poor communication is at the heart of many human relations problems. The age-old problem of school and community relationships and of teacher and student relationships is a part of the story of this study. The methods by which these relationships were examined through action-research, using a human relations survey, have many important implications, not only for education, but also for other areas where human relations problems appear. The action-research project reported here, stripped of its sometimes strange vocabulary and percentage tables, is a simple story in an area familiar to all of us. Teachers, parents, and children were having the usual trouble with each other, just as many other different groups which must work together. The problem might easily have been between teacher and supervisor, or supervisor and administrator. In this case the persons involved were professionally alert, and took up these problems in an in-service training program for teachers"--Foreword.

Studies in topological and vector psychology by Kurt Lewin( )

16 editions published between 1940 and 1977 in English and German and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a beginning study in topological psychology, enabling the student of psychology to make a fresh start in the understanding and utlization of Dr. Kurt Lewin's methods. Certain it is that all psychologists are interested in Dr. Lewin's major attempt to employ new methods of formulating and mathematizing in psychology in such a way as to retain the basic and primary demands of psychology itself. His dynamic theories lead to certain derivatives whose experimental confirmation rightly is held to be of special significance. In these earlier studies the constructs have been kept semimathematical, as against nonmathematical (which would be confusing) or a display of mathematical technicalities that become devoid of psychological meaning. The work moves forward with two feet upon the ground: one theoretical or conceptual, the other experimental. The why and the what are brought into mutual relationship; they are made to serve each other. The validity of this process rests upon its demonstrated fruitfulness. That Lewin and his colleagues are willing to attack the hard problems that lie at the heart of social psychology (although out on the periphery of psychology as revealed to most pre-Gestalt workers), is in itself encouraging"--Preface.

Mobilizing the campus for retention : an innovative quality of life model by Laurence N Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major challenge confronting higher education today, how to maintain and enhance quality in a time of increasingly scarce resources, is examined. Discussed are the characteristics of the successful change process, the need for open communication, motivation of volunteers, key start up activities, and the importance of follow-through. Chapters include: mobilizing for campus retention: the context; a campus health check: 11 vital signs; key principles for mobilizing campus action; creating energy and direction through futuring; a systematic process model for campus retention; implementation issues and obstacles; and vital signs and indicators of retention. It is suggested that to assure optimum effectiveness, organizational development should follow two principles: (1) the planned change should encompass activities that cut across various segments of the institution, and (2) organizational development activities must marshal the collective resources and energy of the faculty, administration and staff of the institution. A bibliography and index are provided. (Lc)
