The Emergent Knowledge Society and the Future of Higher Education

Type: BOOK - Published: 2011-12-15 - Publisher: Routledge

The nature of higher education is by no means fixed: it has evolved over time; different models of higher education co-exist alongside each other at present; and, worldwide, there are demands for higher education to change to better help support economic growth and to better fit chagning social and economic circumstances. This book examines, from an Asian perspective, the debates about how higher education should change. It considers questions of funding, and of who will attend universities, and the fundamental question of what universities are for, especially as the three key funcations of universities - knowledge creation through research, knowledge dissemination through teaching and service, and knowledge conservation through libraries, the disciplinary structuring of knowledge and in other ways - are increasingly being carried out much more widely outside universities in the new "knowledge society". Throughout, the book discusses the extent to which the countries of East Asia are developing new models of higher education, thereby better preparing themselves for the "new "knowledge society", rather than simply following old Western models.

Written at a time of uncertainty about the implications of the English government's curriculum policies, Knowledge and the Future School engages with the debate between the government and large sections of the educational community. It provides a forward-looking framework for head teachers, their staff and those involved in training teachers to use when developing the curriculum of individual schools in the context of a national curriculum. While explaining recent ideas in the sociology of educational knowledge, the authors draw on Michael Young's earlier research with Johan Muller to distinguish three models of the curriculum in terms of their assumptions about knowledge, referred to in this book as Future 1, Future 2 and Future 3. They link Future 3 to the idea of 'powerful knowledge' for all pupils as a curriculum principle for any school, arguing that the question of knowledge is intimately linked to the issue of social justice and that access to 'powerful knowledge' is a necessary component of the education of all pupils. Knowledge and the Future School offers a new way of thinking about the problems that head teachers, their staff and curriculum designers face. In charting a course for schools that goes beyond current debates, it also provides a perspective that policy makers should not avoid.

This text provides an analysis of the efforts to establish systems of self-managing schools around the world. The core of this book is the description of the transformation of the education system in the state of Victoria, Australia, from dependence in a highly centralized and bureaucratized structure to one that values local decision making and the creation of a system of self-managing schools. The text goes on to show how these and similar programmes in other nations could lay the foundations for similar reform. The authors propose that there must be changes in the role of key stakeholders, including government, community and profession; traditional approaches must be challenged and new ways to fund schools to be canvassed.
Postmodernity and the Fragmentation of Welfare

Authors: John Carter

Type: BOOK - Published: 2012-10-12 - Publisher: Routledge

Postmodern ideas have been vastly influential in the social sciences and beyond. However, their impact on the study of social policy has been minimal. Postmodernity and the Fragmentation of Welfare analyses the potential for a postmodern or cultural turn in welfare as it treats postmodernity as an evolving canon -from the seminal works of Baudrillard, Foucault and Lyotard, through to recent theories of the 'risk society'. Already disorientated by globalisation, new technologies and the years of new right ascendancy, welfare faces a significant challenge in the postmodern. It suggests that, rather than universality and state provision, the new social policy will be consumerised and fragmented -a welfare state of ambivalence. With contributions from authors coming from a variety of fields offering very different perspectives on postmodernity and welfare Postmodernity and the Fragmentation of Welfare also keeps social policy's intellectual inheritance in view. By exploring ways in which theorisations of postmodernity might improve understanding of welfare issues in the 1990s and assessing the relevance of theories of diversity and difference to mainstream and critical social policy traditions, this book will be and essential text for all students of social policy, social administration, social work and sociology.

Praise for The Scholarship of Teaching and LearningReconsidered "A worthy capstone that pulls together two decades of CarnegieFoundation projects on the scholarship of teaching and learning.The authors review the genesis of these ideas and envision a futureof continued integration of a culture of evidence in the world'suniversities and colleges. Projects end but the workcontinues." —Lee S. Shulman, president emeritus, The CarnegieFoundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and Charles E. DucommunProfessor of Education emeritus, Stanford University "This book captures the most important lessons from a decade ofthoughtful experimentation with methods to improve the learningoutcomes of American college students. The authors have deepexperience in institutionalizing various approaches that have beendevised and endorsed by faculty in many kinds of higher educationsettings. It will be a manual for those seeking to improve theirown teaching and learning outcomes." —Katharine Lyall, president emerita, University ofWisconsin System "The authors recount the history of research into one's ownteaching, further develop its conceptualization, and makerecommendations for how to bring it into the mainstream.Collectively, they have been at the center of the movement and havewritten, spoken, strategized, and organized conversations andscholarly work on the topic for many years. They present richexamples from many different environments and an unwavering visionof the benefits of the scholarship of teaching and learning and itspotential." —Nancy Chism, Indiana University School of Education,Indianapolis "This book reframes the literature on the scholarship ofteaching and learning, faculty development, assessment, and thefuture of higher education. The writing sparkles with freshanalysis on teaching, learning, academic culture, and thepossibilities for change. This book will help both individualfaculty and entire institutions to enhance scholarly teaching andto deepen student learning." —Peter Felten, assistant provost and director, Centerfor the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, and associateprofessor of history, Elon University

In this important book the author looks back on the 'knowledge question'. What knowledge gets selected to be validated as school knowledge or as part of the school curriculum, and why is it selected? Looking forward, Young discusses how most developed countries have high levels of participation in post-compulsory education, but still use curricula designed for a time when only the elite pursued further education. He argues the need to rethink post-16 education to shift focus onto vocational education, school-work issues and lifelong learning.
