Advancing Critical Pedagogy and Praxis Across Educational Settings is both an inquiry and response of gratitude to the work of critical scholars, educators, practitioners, and researchers who honor the complex realities of partnerships between school communities and institutions of higher education. This volume centers the voices of those who explore across time and in between spaces to illuminate synergistic approaches, pathways to new ideas and consciousness, relationships of mutual respect, and human-centered perspectives. This collective of narratives reveals the power of local schools and communities partnering with universities and organizations to disrupt inequitable social processes. The authors interrogate the creation and permeation of boundaries to understand interconnectivity of educational practices, community, and the impact of social contexts.
Challenges for Education Quality Management
Both HEIs and academic communities are affected by global trends that pose many challenges. This raises dilemmas related to community building and the cooperation between academic community members, which requires the exchange of experience, knowledge and information on different levels. Therefore, it is necessary to discuss new approaches and methods to manage the learning and teaching process, as well as methods and tools that support the development of the academic community.

This edited volume book tackles this multifaceted phenomenon by combining diverse viewpoints of scholars and practitioners. It captures the nuances of different scientific disciplines, including management science, psychology and pedagogy. What distinguishes the book is its innovation, multidimensionality, interdisciplinarity and methodological diversity.

Building an Academic Community. Challenges for Education Quality Management shows the experiences of different HEIs struggling with current trends in the post-pandemic era such as the change of the university model with an emphasis on practical and competence learning and the technologization of the education process. It can be a valuable basis for future activities to develop the academic community and the quality of education at HEIs.

In the last decade, programming and computational thinking (CT) have been introduced on a large scale in school curricula and standards all over the world. In countries such as the UK, a new school subject—computing—was created, whereas in countries such as Sweden, programming was included in existing subjects, notably mathematics and technology education. The introduction of programming and CT in technology education implies a particular relationship between programming and technology. Programming is usually performed with technological artefacts—various types of computers—and it can also be seen as a specific branch of engineering.

This book analyses the background to and current implementation of programming and computational thinking in a Swedish school technology context, in relation to international developments. The various chapters deal with pertinent issues in technology education and its relation to computers and computing, for example, computational thinking and literacy, teachers’ programming competence, and computational thinking, programming, and learning in technology education. The book includes examples from educational research that could also be used as inspiration for school teaching, teacher education and curriculum development.
Course Design for University Teachers
Universities and their teachers are more than ever required to (re)design their courses considering online environments. Although face-to-face teaching remains fundamental, exploring online alternatives is becoming increasingly necessary. Still, how can university teacher designers proceed with such a change in their courses? What is the most effective way to design an online course? How can university teacher designers attract the attention of students and make teaching interesting and compelling? Evidence-Based Blended and Online Learning: Course Design for University Teachers answers these questions. It provides a thorough evidence-based overview of each step required to make an effective course redesign.

The book is aimed at teachers and, more significantly, teacher designers committed to redesigning their courses based on solid principles. The book’s design approach makes it much easier to translate the results of educational research on applying blended learning in educational practice.

Jan Nedermeijer has worked as an educational expert for several universities and as a senior expert for PUM Netherlands in several countries. The book synthesises the results of the numerous course- and curriculum-development projects he has conducted over many years. His approach can help university teachers implement IT in feasible, practical and interesting ways.

Evidence-Based Blended and Online Learning gives lecturers tailor-made pedagogical suggestions for designing modern higher education. Course design tasks are re-described, using features from technical design, problem solving, and design thinking, where creative design has a unique and essential role.

Theories and Practices of Integral Education and Integral Drama Based Pedagogy presents studies exploring the deep connections among theories and practices of integral education; and it introduces Integral Drama Based Pedagogy, a new integration of educational, therapeutic, artistic, and social theories and practices.
An international group of scholars, teachers, professors, and practitioners have contributed studies that draw upon theories of integral education from various times and cultures as well as practices that exemplify and encourage fresh integrations. The essays are especially relevant because of the current global evolution of education at all levels, from primary school to the university and into the community. This evolution has been inspiring teachers and professors to move beyond their traditional disciplinary boundaries, to engage in transdisciplinary educational models that embody multiple ways of knowing, and to recognize the student as a whole person.
Integral Education is not limited to a particular theory or practice: it is expansive. It integrates many models of teaching and learning, for example, Integral Drama Based Pedagogy integrates drama and other expressive arts. It also includes multiple ways of knowing; it embodies teaching and learning through action; and it values the intellectual, physical, and spiritual dimensions of being human.
