Pedagogies of the imagination : mythopoetic curriculum in educational practice by Timothy Leonard( Book )

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the practice of Imaginal Knowing in education. Imaginal knowing is not fantasy, but is linked to the way humans imagine the real world. Imaginal knowing moves the heart, holds the imagination, finds the fit between self-stories, public myths, and the content of cultural knowledge. It is deeply personal, yet open to the universe. The curriculum, as conceptualized here, is the medium through which imaginal knowing is evoked in both teachers and students. Educators from United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada offer a vision of educational practice seasoned in ye
Rethinking work and learning : adult and vocational education for social sustainability by Peter Willis( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Swedish and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together an international group of contributors to explore ways in which social sustainability can be integrated into Adult and Vocational Education (AVE) practices. While it is clear that given the rapid change of work, job-specific training for adults is clearly vital the world over, it is argued here that job-specific training needs re-orientation to include life-specific learning as well. This can come about when the learning opportunities to which citizens have access prepare them for participation in work which is economically productive and at the same time engages them in related civic activities which promote environmental and social sustainability. The re-orientation of current AVE systems can be achieved in two ways: by broadening the educational agenda to include elements of environmental science, politics and the arts, and by including more dialogic and collaborative teaching and learning styles

Inviting learning : an exhibition of risk and enrichment in adult education practice by Peter Willis( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explores adult education practice by using an expressive research method based on using the metaphor of an exhibition as a vehicle for presenting and reflecting on seven episodes in the researcher's two decades of teaching at various locations throughout Australia. In accordance with the metaphor, the study report contains the following elements: (1) an entrance foyer introducing the expressive approach (which emphasizes portraying rather than explaining phenomena); (2) a main gallery consisting of seven chapters that each explore an episode in the author's adult education practice; (3) a gallery of method expounding the principles of the expressive method and its foundations in "empathetic" and "intuiting" forms of phenomenology; and (4) an exit foyer that builds a collage of images developed in the main gallery and considers their significance for practice. The following are among eight key images and implications thereof that emerged during the study: (1) respectful mobilizing for learning and the requirement of respect; (2) monitoring and serving the learning group and the need to be "safeguarding"; (3) mentoring and the need to engage, challenge, and nurture; (4) rendering things to be learned learnable and the requirement of didactic clarity; (5) making friendly spaces and silences for learning and the need to let go and relinquish control.

Learning collaborations between ACE and vocational education and training providers : good practice partnerships by Susan Gelade( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The findings presented in this report indicate that engagement with learning and training opportunities is being enhanced by partnerships between ACE and VET in communities where such partnerships operate. As a consequence, it would appear that there are implications for policy development that further underpins, auspices and promotes partnerships. In terms of practice, the findings clearly show there are gains to be made for both ACE and VET organisationsâand their client students and communitiesâif they are able to instigate the types of practices outlined by our respondents. At the same time, we acknowledge that the findings indicate concern by both organisations that bureaucratic practices can be counter-productive and that not all organisations can happily collaborate. However, it is heartening that the organisations themselves acknowledge such issues and therefore it would seem that partnerships and collaborations can be a key to opening up conversations about mitigating the effects of stresses occurring between organisations. This research has resulted in a definitive good practice guide which offers constructive and practical information for organisations and practitioners seeking to repeat these collaborations elsewhere, whether on an informal or formal basis. The research used interviews and site visits to identify key factors and these are set out in 'Creating effective ACE and VET partnerships: Good practice guide'
