Topics covered by the book
Higher education has entered a phase of transformation over the last decade globally, in which institutions have been compelled to progressively shift their focus from research to teaching. Over this period, the student population in post-secondary has also become increasingly diverse. Faculty are hence increasingly being encouraged to develop pedagogical practices that are student-centered, transformative and inclusive. This objective requires a rapid shift of mindset from instructors, but they are also being constantly reminded of the need to simultaneously function and thrive within a business model ethos, and a neoliberal value system. There is a tangible ambivalence in the messaging faculty receive, and instructors are required to be creative, savvy and versatile in order to navigate this contradiction successfully. The volume seeks to examine the tension which exists between student-centered transformative pedagogies and neo-liberal pressures within higher education, as well as the opportunities being developed in this landscape.
Topics include innovative and transformative student-centered practices in higher education pedagogy which may inherently clash with neoliberal imperatives and objectives:
Universal Design for Learning;
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion;
Social Constructivist practices;
Decolonizing Higher Education;
Indigenizing Higher Education;
Social Capital Development;
Global Citizenship Education.
