Academics in Action

Author: Lauren Brinkley-Rubinstein
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780823268801
Release Date: 2015-02-05
Genre: Action research in education

The theory, vision, and implementation of a multidisciplinary collaborative approach to social learning The academy is often described as an ivory tower, isolated from the community surrounding it. Presenting the theory, vision, and implementation of a socially engaged program for the Department of Human and Organizational Development (HOD) in Peabody's College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University, Academics in Action! describes a more integrated model wherein students and faculty work with communities, learn from them, and bring to bear findings from theory and research to generate solutions to community problems. Offering examples of community-engaged theory, scholarship, teaching, and action, Academics in Action! describes the nuanced structures that foster and support their development within a research university. Theory and action span multiple ecological levels from individuals and small groups to organizations and social structures. The communities of engagement range from local neighborhoods and schools to arenas of national policy and international development. Reflecting the unique perspectives of research faculty, practitioners, and graduate students, Academics in Action! documents a specific philosophy of education that fosters and supports engagement; the potentially transformative nature of academic work for students, faculty, and the broader society; and some of the implications and challenges of action-oriented efforts in light of dynamics such as income inequality, racism, and global capitalism. This edited volume chronicles teaching, research, and community action that influences both inside and outside the classroom as well as presents dimensions of a participatory model that set such efforts into action.

Coco f hrt Rad

Author: Hans Augusto Rey
ISBN: 3257008392
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Monkeys

Affe auf zwei Rädern: Der Affe Coco lebt bei seinem Freund, dem Mann mit dem gelben Hut. Er ist aufgeregt, denn heute vor drei Jahren ist er aus dem Dschungel hierher gebracht worden und darf deshalb am Abend mit in den Zirkus. Aber vorher erhält er ein Fahrrad als Geschenk und da er schon Rad fahren kann, probiert er sich bald an kleinen Kunststücken. Doch schon bald wird ihm langweilig und er fährt auf die Strasse, wo er gerne einem Zeitungsjungen hilft, die Zeitungen auszuliefern, bis er Jungen am Bach sieht, die Schiffe fahren lassen, worauf er die restlichen Zeitungen zur Flotte faltet und schwimmen lässt. Auf seiner spontanen Weiterfahrt landet er schliesslich im Zirkus, rettet einem kleinen Bären das Leben und darf seine Kunststücke zeigen, bevor er mit seinem Freund wieder nach Hause fährt. Der eher betulichen Geschichte mit den süsslichen Illustrationen sieht man an, dass sie aus den fünfziger Jahren ist. Ob es wirklich nötig ist, bei dem heute so breiten, künstlerisch starken Bilderbuchmarkt Rückgriffe auf Oldtimer zu machen, ist fraglich. Es gibt Klassiker, bei denen man sich eine Neuauflage wünschte, das vorliegende Buch gehört nicht dazu. Ab 5 Jahren, ***, Monika Hedinger.

Wir werden angeregt, uns ehrlich und klar auszudrücken und gleichzeitig anderen Menschen unsere respektvolle Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken. Wenn wir die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation in unseren Interaktionen anwenden, ob mit uns selbst, mit ein.
