Описание: Improve student outcomes with collective teacher efficacy. Is your school climate promoting meaningful change? Recent research suggests that Collective Efficacy (CE) is the number one factor influencing student achievement. CE—the belief that, through collective actions, educators can influence student outcomes and improve student learning—is changing the educational ecosystem. A faculty with high Collective Efficacy show greater effort and persistence, willingness to try new teaching approaches, and attend more closely to struggling students’ needs. This book presents practical strategies and tools for increasing student achievement by sharing: Rationale and sources for establishing CE Conditions and leadership practices for CE to flourish Professional learning structures/protocols that promote CE If educators’ realities are filtered through the belief that they can do very little to influence student achievement, then it is likely these beliefs will manifest in their practice. Help teachers develop mastery and CE by employing these key strategies. “Acclaimed staff developer and experienced educational consultant Jennifer Donohoo puts the sword to the mistaken idea that the best way to improve teaching is by evaluating individuals. Donohoo takes an old idea—collective efficacy—strengthens it with a rigorous research base, and brings it alive through her countless observations of teachers' practice. Collective Efficacy is about the overwhelming power that teachers have to improve student learning and achievement when they work together, explore every avenue open to them, and persist relentlessly once they have found the best ways forward. This book will turn many people's assumptions about how best to improve student achievement on their head. Probably one of the very best education books of the year.” Andy Hargreaves, Brennan Chair in Education Boston College

Описание: Attrition in the Engineering disciplines at all Universities is a huge problem. This text, in its first edition, promised to educate all interested in the Engineering area as a whole. Educators and students bought this book because of their great interest in seeing engineers thrive and made it wildly successful. In this edition more information about engineering careers and the discipline generally is to be included. This practical approach is edging out the voluminous, traditional introduction to engineering books.
In this sond edition of The Engineering Student Survival Guide, Chapter 2 has been heavily revised with a completely new section entitled, "Ten Tricks of the Old-Timers (Upperclassmen)". Much of the information pertaining to the time before a freshman's first class begins has been deleted.
This book is part of the B.E.S.T. (Basic Engineering Series and Tools) Series, which consists of modularized textbooks offering virtually every topic and specialty likely to be of interest to engineers. All the texts boast distinguished authors and the most current content. The goal of this series is to provide the educational community with material that is timely, affordable, of high quality, and flexible in how it is used.
Описание: The literature and research on the use of technology in student affairs is still very limited. This volume of "New Direction for Student Services" was written to increase our understanding of the role of technology in the student learning experience of campus-based and as well as distance learners. Information technology has become a central tool in creating 24/7 self-service experiences for students interacting with campus administrative functions. Recent technologies also create the real possibility of moving beyond administrative functions to playing a central role in student learning, community development and student development. This volume monograph attempts to capture the current thinking around the use of technology in student affairs. It is not a review of the actual technologies in use in student affairs. The pace of change is so fast that such a treatment would make the writing out-of-date within two years. In that light, this volume focuses less on the technology and more on the ways in which the technology is altering the organization of student affairs, the ways in which the lines between campus based students and distance learners are blurring and the increasing role technology is playing in student learning.
