Knowledge in education

Why philosophy matters

  • Jan Derry
In recent years ideas about education have polarized: on one side, those stressing facts and disciplines; on the other, those encouraging learners to make their own meaning. But through a fine-grained account of pedagogic practice and subject knowledge Jan Derry provide a means of reconfiguring the issue to transcend this simple opposition.

Second language Learners in International Schools

  • Maurice Carder
By 2020 it is estimated that there will be more than ten thousand international schools educating five million students. Native speakers of English, the language of instruction in 90 per cent of these schools, will be in the minority. The learning needs of second language learners in national education systems differ fundamentally from those of SLLs in the international community. This book argues that SLLs in international schools are better provided for within models of instruction that do not assimilate to any political system; where motivation can come from areas other than wanting to belong to a specific culture; and where students can develop all their languages equitably. The authors trace the theories underpinning second language learning programmes in international schools and delve into the complexities of teacher relationships and the influence of curriculum agencies on second language learning. Through case studies and vignettes, they argue for establishing a department of Professional English as a Second Language at the centre of the academic life in each school, whose staff will build on the widely acknowledged potential of second language learners and enhance their capabilities in all their languages.

Reframing Space for Learning

Empowering excellence and innovation in university teaching and learning

  • Tim Bilham
  • Claire Hamshire
  • Mary Hartog
  • Martina A. Doolan
The concept, use and experience of ‘space’ in higher education have a deep influence on students and teachers. Reframing Space for Learning uniquely explores space as both a ‘learning place’ that may be physical, virtual, in work or in the field, and a ‘belonging space’ in which all learners can learn, engage, and develop individually and collectively. It describes and analyses how a number of National Teaching Fellows have developed innovative ways of using of place and space for learning across disciplines in higher education. In so doing, they provide practical ideas, inspiration and solutions for practitioners responsible for delivering learning in spaces within and outside universities, nationally and internationally. The National Teaching Fellowship scheme, awarded by the UK’s Higher Education Academy, celebrates and recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the student profession in higher education.
