Identity and pedagogy in higher education : international comparisons by Kalwant Bhopal( )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kalwant Bhopal and Patrick Danaher examine 'race', identity and gender within education and explore the difficulties of relating these concepts to the experience of students in higher education. In drawing together the experience of local and international students in the UK and in Australia, they examine the ways identities are understood and conceptualized within higher education in local contexts and on a global level. They consider the complexity of 'race', gender and identity in relation to education within the context that education continues to be dominated by predominantly white, middle class values and perspectives. Identity and Pedagogy in Higher Education examines the extent to which education as a vehicle for change in the light of the controversial debates surrounding race and gender inequalities. - See more at:" from publisher's website

Navigating the education research maze : contextual, conceptual, methodological and transformational challenges and opportunities for researchers by Dolene Rossi( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book depicts rigorous and vigorous accounts of strategies used successfully by researchers to negotiate their way through the research maze. The metaphor of the maze evokes several different and sometimes contradictory elements of contemporary education research, including complexity, confusion, messiness, multiplicity and risk. While these are not necessarily or wholly negative attributes, it is important for researchers to be able to articulate and implement effective strategies for engaging wholeheartedly with these situations to navigate the education research maze. The book is structured around three main themes; politics, ethics, philosophies and theories of education research mazes; mazes in and with specific research methods; and mazes in and with specific research tasks and technologies. Each account develops broader lessons for enhancing the impact, quality, relevance and significance of research in other disciplines as well as education."--Back cover
Producing pleasure in the contemporary university( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academics working in contemporary universities are experiencing unprecedented and unsustainable pressure in an environment of hyper-performativity, metrics and accountability. From this perspective, the university produces multiple tensions and moments of crises, where it seems that there is limited space left for the intrinsic enjoyment arising from scholarly practices. This book offers a global perspective on how pleasure is central to the endeavours of academics working in the contemporary university, with contributors evaluating the opportunities for the strategic refusal of the quantifying, stultifying and stupefying delimiters of what is possible for academic production. The aim of this book is to open up spaces for conversation, reflection and thought, in order to think, to be and to do differently – pleasurably. Contributors rupture the bounds of what is permissible and possible within their daily lives, habits and practices. As such, this book addresses increasingly significant questions. What are some of the multiple and different ways that we can reclaim pleasure and enhance the durations and intensities of our passions, desires and becomings within the contemporary university? How might these aspirations be realised? What are the spaces for the pleasurable production of research that might be opened up? How might we reconfigure the neoliberal university to be a place of more affect, where desire, laughter and joy join with the work that we seek to undertake and the communities whom we serve?
The role of participants in education research : ethics, epistemologies, and methods by Warren Midgley( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores different perspectives on the role, influence and importance of participants in education research. Drawing on a variety of philosophical, theoretical and methodological approaches, the book examines how researchers relate to and with their participants before, during, and after the collection and/or production of data; reimagining the rights of participants, the role/s of participants, the concept/s of "participant" itself"--
Contemporary capacity-building in educational contexts by Patrick Alan Danaher( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Capacity-Building in Educational Contexts extends current understandings of what capacities and capacity-building are and of the dimensions that maximise their prospects of success in current educational policy-making and provision. It does this by exploring how capacity-building is implemented among nine groups of research participants, including Australian, Dutch and English circus families, migrants and refugees in an Australian regional town, and a university education research team. These data sets are analysed to address eight 'hot topics' and 'wicked problems' in contemporary education: consciousness; creativity; dis/empowerment and agency; diversity and identity; forms of capital and currencies; knowledge sharing; regionality and rurality; and resilience
Educational developments, practices and effectiveness : global perspectives and contexts( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Educational initiatives are continually implemented in order to understand what works in education and why. This book explores a range of such initiatives in Australia, Canada and Switzerland in order to analyse their effectiveness in improving outcomes for learners and teachers, as well as promoting specialised disciplines of knowledge. The first chapter distils a conceptual framework clustered around four elements of educational developments: the institutional focus, educators' professional development and reflective practice, research-based practice and technological impact. The rest of the chapters present case studies concerning enhancing corporate learning; metacognition and co-regulation in online communities of inquiry; supporting university students with disabilities; educational evaluation of teachers' ICT knowledge; using language to achieve schoolwide pedagogical improvement; sustainable engineering education; mathematics education through digital technologies; and the mass media's educational value."--Publisher's website
Educational innovations and contemporary technologies : enhancing teaching and learning by Petrea Redmond( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through careful selection of contemporary research, this volume demonstrates the different ways in which groups of learners as well as educators go about the complex task of innovatively designing and implementing technologies in education. The book explores a wide range of conceptual, disciplinary, methodological, national and sectoral boundaries and divides educational technologies into three key themes: specialised educational technologies; particular groups of learners; and teacher education. Current developments across Australia, Canada, Asia and the United States are all explained to illustrate the four central issues in innovation: policy and innovation; measuring innovation; sustaining innovation; and diffusing innovation. Throughout this book new understandings of the complex links between innovations and technologies are highlighted in multiple and highly varied educational settings"--
Researching education with marginalized communities by Mike Danaher( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Researching Education with Marginalised Communities" brings together two important 21st century themes. The authors consider the what, where and why of marginalisation, that insidious phenomenon whereby certain groups of people are deemed inferior on the basis of factors that they cannot control. Through intensive and extensive research the book also explores the role of education research in enabling those involved, whether on the margin or at the centre, to achieve comprehensive awareness of marginalisation and to combine forces to combat the stigma of discrimination. The six groups of marginalised learners included in the book live in Australia, the UK, Continental Europe, Japan and Venezuela, and include mobile circus and fairground communities; teachers of Traveller children; pre-undergraduate university students; vocational education students with disabilities and their teachers; environmental lobbyists and policy makers; and retired people. All chapters explain how researching education with marginalised communities can be carried out effectively and ethically
Myths in education, learning and teaching : policies, practices and principles by Marcus K Harmes( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A myth empowers by providing a foundation story of a society, culture or civilization, bringing coherence and meaning to identity and underpinning custom. But 'myth' also carries darker meaning, suggesting ideas or practices that are fallacious or accepted uncritically. This book engages with these possible understandings of myths and uses them to interrogate educational practice and theory in three main areas: online teaching; language teaching; and specific tertiary or university based issues. The focus is on exploring and defining myths across a wide range of contexts and educational sectors. It brings together a broad range of international talent from senior researchers, middle-career and early-career scholars from Britain, North America, Europe, the Middle East and Australasia."--

Educational learning and development : building and enhancing capacity by Margaret Baguley( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational Learning and Development: Building and Enhancing Capacity explores the topic of educational learning and development in order to examine issues that are impacting, either positively or negatively, on current research in this area. This is explored through ten groups of research participants from various countries, including circus families and teachers, students and teachers in a senior secondary art classroom, a parent-run alternative school, and refugees and migrants in a rural setting. These data sets are analysed through eight 'hot topics' and 'wicked problems' in contemporary education, seeking to uncover the capacity-building potential of the research projects and what factors impacted on or assisted in their development. - From the back cover
Community capacity building : lessons from adult learning in Australia by Glen David Postle( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back to School - 2014. Across multiple disciplines concerned with community development there is growing interest in the phenomenon of community capacity building. This book is a valuable resource that presents the latest research into the social and educational issues involved and offers new insights into effective strategies and outcomes for both specific and global communities. Through experiences in Australia and drawing on examples of good practice internationally (including the UK, US, Canada, Europe and New Zealand), the contributors, themselves a mixture of academic researchers and community members, examine with great breadth and depth how regional and rural communities sustain themselves for equitable and prosperous futures and how community members and university academics can create useful knowledge together. This text uniquely brings community capacity building to life through the personal involvement of academic staff in the community as active partners helping to create new knowledge
Social capital and enterprise in the modern state( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the global crises confronting the world today, it is important to interrogate the notion of "the modern state" and to evaluate its effectiveness in providing security and services for its populations, including the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. This book investigates the modern state's capacity to serve its constituents by examining the organisations that facilitate two key elements of contemporary living: social capital and social enterprise. These elements are explored in a series of rich case studies located in Australia, Ireland and Bangladesh, with broader implications for policy and practice in the rest of the world. The case studies highlight the growing importance of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship in fostering social capital and in contributing to the idea of "the enabling state". This book will appeal to researchers, policy-makers and community leaders working in business, education, employment pathways, homelessness, housing, local government, mental health, public administration and refugee resettlement
Echoes : ethics and issues of voice in education research by Warren Midgley( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Echoes: Ethics and Issues of Voice in Education breaks new ground in the field of education research ethics, by examining different perspectives on the role, influence and importance of voice. Drawing on a variety of philosophical and paradigmatic approaches, Echoes: Ethics and Issues of Voice in Education examines how and the different ways in which researchers conceptualise voice in the context of broader theoretical and methodological issues relating to research ethics. Written by authors working across the globe in a variety of academic contexts, it asks: • How might voice in education be reconceptualised? • What factors influence whether or not, and in what ways, voices are heard and/or (re)presented in education research? • What implications do (re)conceptualisations of voice have with respect to the ethics of education research? • What methods can be used to explore the role, importance and influence of voice in education research from an ethics perspective? • How might voices be appropriately acknowledged and represented in education research? Echoes: Ethics and Issues of Voice in Education invites the reader to join the conversation, as it prompts reflection and discussion about the challenges and concerns inherent in the representation of voice in education research
