Transforming higher education by Lee Harvey( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theme of the book is that the drive for quality in Britain and elsewhere, and the reform of teaching and learning processes have not been connected, organizationally or in practice: change has been driven by the search for efficiency and by a quest for greater bureaucratic accountability. Harvey and Knight argue that, whatever the merits of these developments, they have not been directly concerned to improve the quality of student learning. They argue not just that student learning ought to be at the centre of discussions about quality enhancement, but that the goal ought to be transformation: transformation of universities with a view to transforming learners."--Jacket

Parental involvement in education : what works in the Pacific? by Stan Koki( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing parent involvement in the Pacific region requires an understanding of the traditional system of Pacific education. While historically Pacific education involved parents and community members as children's first teachers, the American model of education virtually ignores this tradition. The school assumes the entire responsibility for education, leading to the belief that school and home are separate domains. Interviews and discussions with Pacific residents focused on involving the traditional extended family in education, and identified barriers to and successful Pacific practices in family and parent involvement. Most barriers to family involvement are social and cultural, including lack of cultural awareness among teachers, importance of community and church events over school activities, low priority given to family involvement by some principals, and parental feelings of being unwelcome or uncomfortable in school surroundings. Three successful family involvement programs are: (1) the Hawaii Parent-Community Networking Center, which provides school-based community gathering places to develop a sense of community encompassing home, school, and neighborhood; (2) the Belau Family School Community Association, an advocacy group that helps to improve communication among family, school, and community and clarify the educational roles of each; and (3) the Chuuk Teacher, Child, Parent, and Community Project, which involves traditional community leaders and parents in helping schools teach health and nutrition education.

Graduates' work : organisational change and students' attributes by Lee Harvey( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Employer and employee perceptions of the skills and abilities needed by college graduates in a changing workplace were examined through semistructured, in-depth interviews with a sample of 84 strategic managers, 84 college graduates, and 35 nongraduate employees in 91 organizations across England and Scotland that represented a mix of organization sizes and sectors. The interviews focused on the following topics: changes in work organizations (downsizing, delayering, and reduction of full-time staff); flexibility, empowerment, and transformation; changes in graduate careers and implications of flexibility; recruitment policy and practices; attributes of graduates; benefits of a degree; work placements; links between higher education and employers; and training and lifelong learning. It was discovered that most organizations have undergone significant change in the past decade and most are developing structures and practices to enhance their flexibility for further change. Most respondents expected continual change, and employers expressed a need for adaptable workers capable of serving as transformative agents. The emergence of flexible organizations, growth of symbolic-analytic services, and the movement of college graduates into nontraditional job has changed college graduates' career patterns. (The bibliography contains 107 references. Appended are details about the respondents and criteria for defining the size of organizations.) (mn)

In view of the increasing emphasis on work experience in higher education (he), a research project was undertaken to identify and compare current practices in the area of work-based learning in undergraduate programs. The study, which focused primarily on work experience in the United Kingdom, involved a literature review and site visits and telephone interview during which input was obtained from representatives of the following: he institutions, student employment bureaus, training and enterprise councils, employer organizations, work experience brokers, student associations, and national voluntary agencies. Special attention was paid to the following topics: learning and work experience; embedded work experience; project-linked work experience; and term-time, part-time, and vacation work. It was discovered that, despite the important benefits of work experience to employers, students, and he academic staff, expansion of such programs is being impeded by three categories of barriers: lack of resources, organization barriers, and discrepancies between supply and demand. Specific actions that employers, students, he staff, he institutions, broker agencies, and the government can take to overcome barriers were identified. (The report contains 87 references.
