    Stylus Publishing 2012; US$ 27.99

    How can it be that 50 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, our institutions of higher education have still not found ways of reducing the education gaps for racial and ethnic groups?

    Stylus Publishing 2010; US$ 27.99

    This book is the culmination of three years’ work by teams from eight institutions in five different European and North American countries interested in developing and disseminating a more profound understanding of university-level pedagogy.

    The book constitutes a practical introduction to blended learning, illustrated by implementations across a broad spectrum of disciplines.

  • White Teachers / Diverse Classroomsby Julie Landsman; Chance W. Lewis

    Stylus Publishing 2011; US$ 23.99

    The point of departure for this new edition, as it was for the first, is the unacceptable reality that, for students of color, school is often not a place to learn but a place of low expectations and failure. In urban schools with concentrations of poverty, often fewer than half the ninth graders leave with a high school diploma. This second edition... more...

  • Coming to Terms with Student Outcomes Assessmentby Peggy L. Maki

    Stylus Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    “Assessment on college campuses has a sordid history, and it is fairly simple to find someone with a traumatic tale to tell. It is wise to respect that that reputation is deserved.” “How do you modify the inner workings and culture of a massive institution with minimal resources and even less authority (other than GE course approvals),... more...

  • Promoting Health and Wellness in Underserved Communitiesby Anabel Pelham; Elizabeth Sills

    Stylus Publishing 2010; US$ 23.99

    Starting from the premise that our health status, vulnerability to accidents and disease, and life spans – as individuals and communities – are determined by the organization, delivery, and financing (or lack thereof) of health care, this book explores how educators and community caretakers teach the complex web of inter-connection between... more...

  • Culture Centers in Higher Educationby Lori D. Patton

    Stylus Publishing 2010; US$ 21.99
