This edited volume will be an important and key resource for managers, researchers, and policy makers in the field of Higher Education and Further Education. It offers insights into a radical new way of organizing post-compulsory education on an international basis that directly promotes a social justice agenda (i.e., widening of student participation). Around the world post-compulsory education is divided between Universities and Community-based Colleges. Universities are typically concerned with "higher" education, while community based colleges focus on "further" and technical education. In response to a range of social and economic forces there has been a growth in the number of dual sector institutions (or "duals") that span this divide. Challenging Boundaries brings together leading international thinkers, policy analysts, academic managers, and researchers who question whether duals can provide relevant education to students and appropriate graduates for the economy, while also offering greater opportunities to disadvantaged students. Challenging Boundaries provides an analysis of the potential of "dual sector" institutions in North America, UK, South Africa, and Australasia. This volume draws on the very latest research findings and effectively looks to: Challenge conventional thinking about post-compulsory education Demonstrate how a number of institutions internationally are addressing the organizational, managerial, and cultural challenges of operating as dual sector universities Combine the latest research in the field from a range of international scholars with operational insights from university leaders Provide a key resource for education policy makers and researchers and students of educational policy and management at masters and doctoral level

This edited collection challenges the perceptions of disciplinary, linguistic, geographical and ideological borders that run across language education. By highlighting commonalities and tracing connections between diverse sub-fields that have traditionally been studied separately, the book shows how the perspectives of practitioners and researchers working in diverse areas of language education can mutually inform each other. It consists of three thematic parts: Part I outlines the field of language education and challenges its definition by highlighting additional theoretical constructs that have tended to be viewed as separate from language education. Part II investigates curricular boundaries, showing how the language-learning curriculum can be enriched by connections with other curricular areas. Lastly, Part III looks into the challenges and opportunities associated with language education against the backdrop of globalisation.

Download Rethinking Nature Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
Contemporary ideas of nature were largely shaped by schools of thought from Western cultural history and philosophy until the present-day concerns with environmental change and biodiversity conservation. There are many different ways of conceptualising nature in epistemological terms, reflecting the tensions between the polarities of humans as masters or protectors of nature and as part of or outside of nature. The book shows how nature is today the focus of numerous debates, calling for an approach which goes beyond the merely technical or scientific. It adopts a threefold – critical, historical and cross-disciplinary – approach in order to summarise the current state of knowledge. It includes contributions informed by the humanities (especially history, literature and philosophy) and social sciences, concerned with the production and circulation of knowledge about "nature" across disciplines and across national and cultural spaces. The volume also demonstrates the ongoing reconfiguration of subject disciplines, as seen in the recent emergence of new interdisciplinary approaches and the popularity of the prefix "eco-" (e.g. ecocriticism, ecospirituality, ecosophy and ecofeminism, as well as subdivisions of ecology, including urban ecology, industrial ecology and ecosystem services). Each chapter provides a concise overview of its topic which will serve as a helpful introduction to students and a source of easy reference. This text is also valuable reading for researchers interested in philosophy, sociology, anthropology, geography, ecology, politics and all their respective environmentalist strands.

Contributors contend that new realities such as NAFTA and recent events in Bosnia have exposed the inadequacies of existing models of international relations, and reveal how the traditional theoretical framework, with its emphasis on bipolar politics and great-power relations, is implicated in the power structure it describes. They look at the global instabilities putting pressure on the bordered world of states, and explore modes of political expression and action that challenge this framework.

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.
