  • Places of Learningby Elizabeth Ellsworth

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 54.95

    This book takes a close look at places of learning located outside of schools, yet deeply concerned with the experience of the learning self. It explores what it might mean to think of pedagogy not in relation to knowledge as a "thing made," but to knowledge in the making. more...

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 39.00

  • Participatory Practices in Adult Educationby Pat Campbell; Barbara Burnaby

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 65.95

    Although there has been a great deal of rhetoric about learner empowerment in educational and community development circles, this book is the first to offer detailed examples of successful participatory practices in adult education spanning a wide range of program settings, such as schools, institutions, communities, and the workplace. The editors... more...

  • Education in a Post Welfare Societyby Sally Tomlinson

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 47.00

  • 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...

  • Education Reformby Stephen J. Ball

    McGraw-Hill Education 1994; US$ 51.00

    Builds upon Stephen J Ball's previous work in the field of education policy analysis. This book aims to show that the reforms taking place in the UK are both a form of cultural and social engineering and an attempt to recreate a fantasy education based upon myths of national identity, consensus and glory. more...
