Bonfire of the Publics? Rebuilding the Social Foundations of Higher Education
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) The bedrock of Clark Kerr’s Californian Model of higher education was a compact between individual self-realization and the common good which gave every family a stake in a higher education system committed to expanding opportunity for all. This compact endured surprisingly well through the collectivist anti-statism of the 1960s student revolt and the more individualist anti-statism of the 1970s/1980s tax revolt, but its basis is now eroded. While higher education has never been more globally effective, its social foundations have fractured. The cost of tuition is outstripping the capacity to pay. In societies becoming more unequal, elite universities are moving further out of reach, while the quality of mass higher education is under growing pressure. Amid a one-sided emphasis on instrumental private benefits, the public mission of the university is in question, not only in the United States but elsewhere Series: "Clark Kerr Lecture Series on the Role of Higher Education" [12/2014] [Education] [Show ID: 28796]

Foundations of Higher Education Law and Policy
Professor Peter F. Lake talks about his new book, Foundations of Higher Education Law and Policy: Basic Legal Rules, Concepts and Principles for Student Affairs (NASPA, 2011).
6 Basic Exercises
Brian Gray, Program Director of the Foundations in Anthroposophical Studies' at Rudolf Steiner College, explains the six basic exercises as explained by Rudolf Steiner, and how Brian has worked with them and teaches them to his students. These exercises are basic, or essential, because they are foundational to any spiritual practice. These are meant to complete the forming of the heart chakra. This topic is one of many that are explored in the Foundation program, which is central to RSC's curriculum and highlights the spiritual scientific research of Rudolf Steiner and others. For more information about anthroposophy and the anthroposophical studies programs at RSC, go to www.steinercollege.edu/anthroposophy. For more on the six basic exercises, and the book How to Know Higher Worlds, check out the Bookstore at Rudolf Steiner College at www.steinercollege.edu/store.

Book Talk: Unequal Partners - American Foundations and Higher Education in Africa
At a time when higher education is once again recognized as a driver of development and income growth, when knowledge economies requiring additional levels of education are displacing economies predicated on manufacturing, and in a context where higher education itself appears increasingly precarious and under dramatic pressures to adapt to new conditions, one can wonder what is the role of global philanthropy. Fabrice Jaumont presents his new book "Unequal Partners: American Foundations and Higher Education Development in Africa" and discusses with NYU Professor Teboho Moja how new philanthropic trends are emerging, the conditions under which philanthropy can be effective, the impasses that foundations often face abroad, and the updated context of higher education in Africa. Moderated by Naomi Moland.
David Hansen's Lecture: Is Education Possible Today?
David Hansen's Weinberg lecture poses the question whether education is possible today. He addresses three prevalent responses to the question: (1) that it is obviously possible since we can see all around us teachers and students working in classrooms, (2) that it is obviously not possible because the educational system has been subverted to serve the ends of a global economic order, and (3) that education remains possible because of the inextinguishable human quest for meaning even in the face of unjust societal conditions. Hansen also argues that while there is evidence to support the three responses, they all in eff ect dismiss the question of education's possibility and thus undermine its authentic enactment. Hansen suggests that the question of education is the one question we need to keep open in order to ensure the continuation of education itself. David Hansen was recently named the John L. and Sue Ann Weinberg Professor in the Historical and Philosophical Foundations of Education at Teachers College. His books include the widely cited The Call to Teach (1995), Exploring the Moral Heart of Teaching (2001), Ethical Visions of Education (2007), and most recently The Teacher and the World (2011). David Hansen is a Past-President of the John Dewey Society and of the Philosophy of Education Society, and is a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association. He is currently leading a funded three-year-long inquiry, alongside sixteen teachers from New York City schools, that is entitled "What does it mean to be a person in the world today?"

3 Things I Enjoyed about the Foundations of Higher Education Leadership Course
Hi everyone my name is Claudia. I'm here today to talk to you about the Foundations of Higher Education Leadership that I took as an undergraduate. I enjoyed that the course introduced me to the application process. We did a group project where we were in groups of three and we presented about graduate programs that were in higher education leadership, and how to apply to them. It was really cool, not only to present about the schools that I had in my group. It was also really cool to listen to what the other presenters shared with me because at the time I was looking into a lot of schools, and a lot of different programs, so that support was much appreciated. Then secondly, in regards to interviewing we actually did a project where we applied to a position and graduate students actually gave us a phone interview and then we also interviewed in person with them. It was great experience and practice and I got really really constructive feedback from them that to this day I really use. Number 2: our instructor Steve Tolman! He balanced the challenge of the course and the assignments and the syllabus with support. He was a great resource to us and then he also introduced us to a lot of different resources on campus that we could use such as the library and the writing center. Writing at the graduate level was something that we really accomplished, I think, in that class. Number 3 is it was an introduction, not only to writing at the graduate level but also to the subject matter, the theories, the themes. So one of the things that we did was we actually had a guest speaker he was a graduate student at the time. His name is Chris Trautman. He actually gave us a lecture about student development theory. And then another thing that we did was we had this book. It's the Strengths Finder book. We actually did the quiz that goes along with it. It asks you a bunch of questions and it tells you what your strengths are. Mine are "woo" which is winning others over, communication, developer, futuristic, positivity. So it was really cool to do that as a class and get to know everybody, their strengths and be introduced to strengths-based leadership. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you have any questions send me an email and have a great day! Thanks for watching.

Uniandes - Forum on strategies for improving the quality of higher education 2/3
Joseph B. Berger, Associate Dean for Research and Engagement in the School of Education at University of Massachusetts Amherst (USA), participated in a 'Forum on strategies for improving the quality of higher education' in Colombia held May 9 at the Universidad de los Andes. The academic event was organized by Centro de Investigación y Formación en Educación (Cife) of Uniandes. Joseph B. Berger's scholarly interests focus on postsecondary educational leadership and organizational development. Most recently, his work is focused on improving tertiary educational systems and institutions in high need international contexts such as Egypt, Malawi, China, the Philippines, Russia, and Afghanistan. Domestically, his work focuses on the ways in which leadership, organizational, and policy structures influence college access and degree attainment, particularly for those students who have been traditionally under-represented in higher education. He has authored dozens of journal articles, book chapters, and research reports and served on the editorial boards of top journals such as Research in Higher Education, Journal of College Student Development, and Journal of College Student Retention. His work has generated more than $10 million in external funding from agencies and foundations such as the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, National Science Foundation (NSF), and United States Agency for International Development (USAID). His work has been recognized with awards from the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), American College Personnel Association (ACPA), and National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).

How Georgia Tech is Creating The Next in Education
This moment is ripe for change in higher education. Scores of technology entrepreneurs, foundations, and policymakers are already trying to shape what the future will look like for both learners and institutions. The message for colleges and universities is clear: they can either sit idly by or join in to design their own destiny. As a selective public institution with a history of educational innovation, the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) sits squarely in the middle of the forces shaping higher education. It is uniquely positioned to model what the university of the future might look like. This report of the Georgia Tech Commission on Creating the Next in Education (CNE) is an effort to draw with broad strokes the nature of education that defines the technological research university of the year 2040 and beyond.

What is EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION? What does EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION mean? EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION meaning - EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION definition - EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Educational accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which services and operations of educational institutions or programs are evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met. If standards are met, accredited status is granted by the appropriate agency. In most countries the function of educational accreditation is conducted by a government organization, such as a Ministry of Education. In the United States a quality assurance process exists that is independent of government and performed by private non-profit organizations. Those organizations are formally called accreditors. All accreditors in the US must in turn be recognized by the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI), which is an advisory body to the U.S. Secretary of Education, in order to receive federal funding and any other type of federal recognition. Therefore, the federal government is the principal architect and controlling authority of accreditation. The U.S. accreditation process was developed in the late 19th century and early 20th century after educational institutions perceived a need for improved coordination and articulation between secondary and post-secondary educational institutions, along with standardization of requirements between the two levels. Accreditation of higher education varies by jurisdiction and may be focused on either or both the institution or the individual programs of study. Higher education accreditation in the United States has long been established as a peer review process coordinated by accreditation commissions and member institutions. The federal government began to play a limited role in higher education accreditation in 1952 with the reauthorization of the GI Bill for Korean War veterans. With the creation of the U.S. Department of Education and under the terms of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, the U.S. Secretary of Education is required by law to publish a list of nationally recognized accrediting agencies for higher education. In the United States, there is no federal government list of recognized accreditation agencies for primary and secondary schools like there is for higher education. Public schools must adhere to criteria set by the state governments, and there is wide variation among the individual states in the requirements applied to non-public primary and secondary schools. There are six regional accreditors in the United States that have historically accredited elementary schools, junior high schools, middle schools, high schools, as well as institutions of higher education. Some of the regional accreditors, such as AdvancED, and some independent associations, such as the Association of Christian Schools International, have expanded their accreditation activity to include schools outside of the United States.

Think of it as a shorthand, of sorts. As opposed to having to do something over and over again, algebra gives you a simple way to express that repetitive process. It's also seen as a "gatekeeper" subject. Once you achieve an understanding of algebra, the higher-level math subjects become accessible to you. Without it, it's impossible to move forward. It's used by people with lots of different jobs, like carpentry, engineering, and fashion design. In these tutorials, we'll cover a lot of ground. Some of the topics include linear equations, linear inequalities, linear functions, systems of equations, factoring expressions, quadratic expressions, exponents, functions, and ratios. About Khan Academy: Khan Academy is a nonprofit with a mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. We believe learners of all ages should have unlimited access to free educational content they can master at their own pace. We use intelligent software, deep data analytics and intuitive user interfaces to help students and teachers around the world.
