Engaging Student Voices in Higher Education Diverse Perspectives and Expectations in Partnership

Engaging Student Voices in Higher Education Diverse Perspectives and Expectations in Partnership

Author: Simon Lygo-Baker Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/08/2019

This book examines the importance of exploring the varied and diverse perspectives of student experiences. In both academic institutions and everyday discourse, the notion of the `student voice' is an ever-present reminder of the importance placed upon the student experience in Higher Education: particularly in a context where the financial burden of undertaking a university education continues to grow. The editors and contributors explore how notions of the `student voice' as a single, monolithic entity may in fact obscure divergence in the experiences of students. Placing so much emphasis on the `student voice' may lead educators and policy makers to miss important messages communicated - or consciously uncommunicated - through student actions. This book also explores ways of working in partnership with students to develop their own experiences. It is sure to be of interest and value to scholars of the student experience and its inherent diversity.

Emory as Place Meaning in a University Landscape

Emory as Place Meaning in a University Landscape

Author: Gary S. Hauk, Claire E. Sterk Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/08/2019

Universities are more than engines propelling us into a bold new future. They are also living history. A college campus serves as a repository for the memories of countless students, staff, and faculty who have passed through its halls. The history of a university resides not just in its archives but also in the place itself?the walkways and bridges, the libraries and classrooms, the gardens and creeks winding their way across campus. To think of Emory as place, as Hauk invites you to do, is not only to consider its geography and its architecture (the lay of the land and the built-up spaces its people inhabit) but also to imagine how the external, constructed world can cultivate an internal world of wonder and purpose and responsibility?in short, how a landscape creates meaning. Emory as Place offers physical, though mute, evidence of how landscape and population have shaped each other over decades of debate about architecture, curriculum, and resources. More than that, the physical development of the place mirrors the university's awareness of itself as an arena of tension between the past and the future?even between the past and the present, between what the university has been and what it now purports or intends to be, through its spaces. Most of all, thinking of Emory as place suggests a way to get at the core meaning of an institution as large, diverse, complex, and tentacled as a modern research university.
