Teaching as community property: essays on higher education
For almost two decades, acclaimed education scholar and current president of The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Lee S. Shulman has been bringing uncommon wit, passion, and vision to issues of teaching and learning in higher education.
"Teaching as Community Property" brings together a brilliant collection of Shulman's papers and presentations since 1987, giving readers a unique window into his ideas and proposals for the improvement of teaching and learning in higher education. What emerges is a vision of Shulman's overarching agenda--to improve the quality of teaching for "all" students by making teaching be a more respected dimension of all the disciplines and professional fields.
Much of the work collected here reflects Shulman's contention that expert teachers know how to transform the subject they are teaching into terms that their students will understand. Throughout the book, he argues for the unity of the scholarly life and shows how acts of discovering, integrating, applying, and representing ideas are mutually reinforc ing. In addition, this important volume reveals that professing what one knows can lead to rich new discoveries.
"Teaching as Community Property" maps out a program of action that engages faculty in the act of reinvention and a commitment to the development of new models and possibilities.
