  • The State And The Schoolby John Turner

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 65.95

    There was once agreement that education was too important to be left to politicians; now the view is that education is too important to be left to teachers. Whereas the curriculum and syllabus were previously the concern of the professionals, the government now distrusts these professionals. This has resulted in the Secretary for State assuming massive... more...

  • Think Scenarios, Rethink Educationby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006; US$ 33.00

    What happens in education today will affect the lives of individuals and the health of whole communities for decades to come. Yet educational decision-making is mostly about dealing with pressing immediate issues or seeking more efficient ways of maintaining established practice, rather than about shaping the long term. How to redress the balance?... more...

  • Extending Educational Changeby Andy Hargreaves

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 52.95

    This volume of the International Handbook of Educational Change deals with the idea and necessity of extending change - conceptually and in action.

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 49.95

    The purpose of this first volume of the International Handbook of Educational Change is to delineate the roots of a movement toward educational change that grew up in - and grew out of - the turbulent political, social, economic and cultural life of the post-World War II years. Its authors, who helped to create and shape the field, examine their work... more...

  • Policy-Making in Educationby Miriam Ben-Peretz

    R&L Education 2009; US$ 28.99

    This book is based on the notion that an adequate response to globalization challenges requires a holistic approach to several different dimensions - immigration, technology, economy, and environment - as well as effective collaboration and coordination among the central domains of education: curriculum, teaching, and teacher education. more...

  • Complexityby Tom P. Abeles

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2011; US$ 199.00

    We are at a seminal transition point for many institutions. The dinosaurs took millennia to disappear or transform. We should not expect the period of transformation for universities to take that long. And, as with some dinosaurs, we should expect that some will survive relatively unchanged. But for most, in a world made global by the electronic network,... more...

  • Transforming education policyby Philip A. Woods

    Policy Press 2011; US$ 38.95

    This topical book argues that a new paradigm is emerging in education, in relation to the economic crisis. It is part of a more general trend to organisational democracy and the onus for change rests with teachers, heads, parents, community members, educational sponsors and partners. more...

  • Ungebrochen gebrochenby Alfred Bodenheimer

    Wallstein Verlag 2012; US$ 12.03

    Hauptbeschreibung Die jüdische Traditionsbildung hat über Jahrtausende und über Kontinente hinweg die Vorstellung einer ungebrochenen Existenz des Judentums erzeugt. Alfred Bodenheimer legt die Wurzeln dieser außerordentlichen Traditionsbildung frei und zeigt, wie sich diese Vorstellung bis heute zu erhalten vermochte. Ausgehend von dem Konzept des... more...

  • Lehrerbildung in Gewerblich-Technischen Fachrichtungenby Matthias Becker; Georg Spöttl; Thomas Vollmer

    W. Bertelsmann Verlag 2012; US$ 31.47

    The concepts for teacher training at vocational schools for commercial-technical subjects are put to the test. Although all stakeholders in this sector advocate high-quality instruction, there are different visions of adequate training. At the same time there is a lack of trainers for these commercial-technical subjects. The publication analyses the... more...
