Critical theory has much to teach us about higher education. By linking critical models, methods, and research tools with an advocacy-driven vision of the central challenges facing postsecondary researchers and staff, Critical Approaches to the Study of Higher Education makes a significant—and long overdue—contribution to the development of the field. The contributors argue that, far from being overly abstract, critical tools and methods are central to contemporary scholarship and can have practical policy implications when brought to the study of higher education. They argue that critical research design and critical theories help scholars see beyond the normative models and frameworks that have long limited our understanding of students, faculty, institutions, the organization and governance of higher education, and the policies that shape the postsecondary arena. A rigorous and invaluable guide for researchers seeking innovative approaches to higher education and the morass of traditionally functionalist, rational, and neoliberal thinking that mars the field, this book is also essential for instructors who wish to incorporate the lessons of critical scholarship into their course development, curriculum, and pedagogy.

Genre: Education

Die 'Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)' der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiären Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkräften für die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit repräsentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkräften für die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundesländern sowie einer repräsentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgängen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthält - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfäden). Für die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Überzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkräfte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kürzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensätzen Sekundäranalysen durchführen zu können. Darüber hinaus können der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Häufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmaße und die Anteile fehlender Werte.

Die Organisation von Studium und Lehre wird zunehmend mehr zu einer Gestaltungs- denn Verwaltungsaufgabe.

Die Autoren analysieren und definieren diese »Neuen Hochschulprofessionen« und ziehen einen europäischen Vergleich.

B rokratie

Publisher: Klett-Cotta

Release Date: 2016-02-20
Genre: Political Science

David Graeber, der bedeutendste Anthropologe unserer Zeit, entfaltet eine fulminante und längst überfällige Fundamentalkritik der globalen Bürokratie! Er erforscht die Ursprünge unserer Sehnsucht nach Regularien und entlarvt ihre Bedeutung als Mittel zur Ausübung von Gewalt. Wir alle hassen Bürokraten. Wir können es nicht fassen, dass wir einen Großteil unserer Lebenszeit damit verbringen müssen, Formulare auszufüllen. Doch zugleich nährt der Glaube an die Bürokratie unsere Hoffnung auf Effizienz, Transparenz und Gerechtigkeit. Gerade im digitalen Zeitalter wächst die Sehnsucht nach Ordnung und im gleichen Maße nimmt die Macht der Bürokratien über jeden Einzelnen von uns zu. Dabei machen sie unsere Gesellschaften keineswegs transparent und effizient, sondern dienen mittlerweile elitären Gruppeninteressen. Denn Kapitalismus und Bürokratie sind einen verhängnisvollen Pakt eingegangen und könnten die Welt in den Abgrund reißen.
