Universities find themselves in dynamic change. They are confronted with growing expectations from their stakeholders, increasing international competition, and new technological challenges. Featuring insights and in-depth case studies from leading researchers and university decision makers from around the world, this book argues that institutions of higher education, in order to be successful, have to actively reflect on circumstances, visions, and strategies to master the future. Drawing from their experiences across a diverse array of institutions in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, the authors explore the pressures on today’s universities and the opportunities for excelling in the contest for resources. They discuss operational issues, such as strategic management, IT governance, leadership development, and entrepreneurial culture, and broader concerns, such as the roles and responsibilities of universities in promoting technology transfer and economic and social development. The result is a resource that not only reveals and analyzes universities from an organizational perspective, but presents best practice models and concrete inspiration for management and policymaking.

Constructivism and the Technology of Instruction

This book is about the implications of constructivism for instructional design practices, and more importantly, it is about a dialogue between instructional developers and learning theorists. Working with colleagues in each discipline, the editors were amazed to find a general lack of familiarity with each others' work. From an instructional design perspective, it seems that the practice of instructional design must be based on some conception of how people learn and what it means to learn. From a learning theory perspective, it seems obvious that the value of learning theory rests in the ability to predict the impact of alternative learning environments or instructional practices on what is learned. Thus the interchange of ideas between these disciplines is essential. As a consequence of both the information rich environment and the technological capability, business is seen moving away from a fixed curriculum and toward providing information and instruction when it is needed. These changes bring about a window of opportunity establishing a dialogue that will provide for a richer understanding of learning and the instructional environment required to achieve that learning. The editors hope that this book is the beginning of the conversation and that it will serve to spur continued conversation between those involved in learning theory and those involved in the design of instruction.

Situated Cognition

This volume contributes to discourse about repositioning situated cognition theory within the broader supporting disciplines and to resolving the problematics addressed within the book. There is a cumulative vision to this work - its theme that the notion of the individual in situated cognition theory needs to be fundamentally reformulated. No theoretical reconfiguration of the social world or social practices can overcome an individual cast in the dualist tradition. This reformulation probes the physiological, psychoanalytic, and semiotic constitution of persons. Chapter authors cover a wide range of topics related to the central themes of the book.

"A thoughtful, scholarly yet accessible account of emotion that speaks to current debates associated with the ‘affective turn’ in disciplines including sociology, cultural studies, geography and psychology... invaluable for anyone wanting to understand contemporary engagements with affect, emotion and feeling." - John Cromby, Loughborough University "A lucid, engaging, and thoroughly insightful review of current social scientific thinking on emotions in social life by a leading scholar in the field... The book is sure to become essential reading for both students and researchers interested in emotion" - Jason Hughes, University of Leicester "A masterful exposition of the links between emotions and social relations... Empirically rich and theoretically deep, this is a highly readable book. - Svend Brinkmann, University of Aalborg This book is a compelling and timely addition to the study of emotions, arguing that emotion is a response to the way in which people are embedded in patterns of relationship, both to others and to significant social and political events or situations. Going beyond the traditional discursive understanding of emotions, Burkitt investigates emotions as a complex and dynamic phenomenon that includes the whole self, body and mind, but which always occur in relation to others.

Auszug: ...jener zu dieser Richtung darzustellen; sie steht ebenso weit unter der Naivitat, wie Lessing uber ihr steht; es lasst sich eine Zeit denken und sie ist vielleicht nicht fern, in welcher zwischen beiden Bestrebungen eine goldene Mittelstrasse eingehalten wird. Wer den Kontakt mit dem Volke hat, wird weiter kommen als Lessing; denn er braucht die Wahrheit nicht zu suchen, er hat sie. Goethe ist theilweise so verfahren. Lessing war der Sturmvogel der kritischen und literarischen Periode, in welcher wir uns noch jetzt befinden; Goethe ist der Sturmvogel der produzirenden und kunstlerischen Periode, welcher wir demnachst entgegengehen. Man sollte dies Augurium nicht ubersehen. Das grosste Problem der Gegenwart ist: den so gewaltig klaffenden Riss zwischen Gebildeten und Ungebildeten zu uberbrucken; vermittelst der bisher so beliebten Halbbildung lasst sich dasselbe nicht losen. Nicht von oben aus rekonstruirt man Hauser und Nationen; nur wenn der Volksboden seine schopferischen Tiefen aufthut, kann neues geistiges Leben in Deutschland erbluhen. Christus Sokrates Luther haben von unten nach oben gebaut; und sie haben mehr erreicht, als irgend einer und sei es der hochststehende ihrer gebildeten" Vor-und Nachfolger; hier also ist klar die Bahn vorgezeichnet, welche der kunftige Deutsche zu wandeln hat. Je niedriger er seinen Standpunkt nimmt, um zu den hochsten Zielen zu gelangen, um so weiter wird er es bringen. Mit der durchmessenen Distanz des inneren Aufschwungs wachst die entsprechende geistige und sittliche Leistungsfahigkeit; nicht umsonst hat Goethe betont, dass

In this classic study, Reich repudiates the concept that fascism is the ideology or action of a single individual or nationality, or of any ethnic or political group. Instead he sees fascism as the expression of the irrational character structure of the average human being whose whose primary biological needs and impulses have been suppressed for thousands of years.

The Transformer: Principles of Making Isotype Charts is the first English-language primer on Isotypethe foundation of the modern-day pictographic signals found in airports, train stations, highway signs, and computer interfaces. Featuring illustrated examples and essays, including a previously unpublished essay by Marie Neurath, The Transformer is a long-overdue appreciation of an important moment in the history of visual communication.
