This volume contains material on research based teaching techniques for use in higher education. The focus is on small group learning procedures. None of this material has previously appeared in book form. Twenty of the articles first appeared in the Cooperative Learning and College Teaching newsletter that Jim Cooper and Pamela Robinson edited from 1990 to 1999. These articles address applications of small group learning within a variety of academic disciplines. Authors of the articles in this work include David and Roger Johnson, Karl Smith, Joe Cuseo, Susan Prescott Johnston, Spencer Kagan, Rachel Hertz-Lazarowitz, Richard Felder, Barbara Millis and Lisa Gray-Shellberg. Twelve chapters, never before published, were solicited for this volume. Some of these works focus on research and theory in active and small group learning and others address more applied group work in teaching and learning in the college classroom. The chapters are more comprehensive than the newsletter articles and include contributions by David and Roger Johnson, Karl Smith, Spencer Kagan, Barbara Millis, Joe Cuseo, Susan Prescott Johnston, Cynthia Desrochers, Mark Maier, Philip Abrami and Donald Bligh. Topics treated in the new chapters contain recent work in brain-based learning, critical thinking, student engagement, information technology, distance education, and learning communities. Readers of the 2003 book edited by Jim, Pamela and David Ball, Small Group Instruction in Higher Education: Lessons from the Past, Visions of the Future, will want to add this text to their libraries, since none of the material in the current volume appeared in the 2003 book or the 2009 second edition.
The second edition of this title represents a compilation of work completed by Jim Cooper and his colleagues in the Network for Cooperative Learning in higher education over the last fifteen years, including eight new chapters were written specifically for this edition. It presents a look at the history of small group instruction research, theory and practice and offers a glimpse at the future of this powerful instructional strategy.
In the present collection of articles by Malcolm Parkes two overarching concerns emerge: the palaeography of manuscript books in relation to what Parkes has previously called the 'grammar of legibility'; and the importance of considering the circumstances in which medieval books were produced, copied and read. The individual studies discuss the handwriting of individual scribes, and the evidence script can provide of the circumstances of a book's production, the effect of punctuation and layout of text on the reader's interpretation of a work, and the provision and production of books for communities of readers, both clerical and academic. From a discussion of the scribe of the Hereford Mappa Mundi to a comprehensive study of book provision in the medieval University of Oxford, a wealth of information is conveyed in these articles, now conveniently accessible in one volume, about books and their histories by one of the most knowledgeable of manuscript scholars today.

This book is about teaching for professional practice and explores ways to engage students in the classroom. It draws on the principles of rigorous scholarship and focuses on interactive learning between the class and the professor and among the students. Each contributor addresses the need to connect theory with community practice, deploying different methods in different contexts, and sharing scholarly reflections about how to improve the craft of teaching. The essays offer practical suggestions that allow readers to adapt and apply these ideas in their own classrooms to suit their particular contexts and share the outcomes of that process.
After more than a century of being undervalued, further education
has been thrust into the limelight. How have the colleges fared?
How have they been shaped by the new arrangements for funding,
governance, inspection and the new qualifications framework? What
do those running the colleges and working in them make of the
changes? What are their prospects for the new millennium?
This selection of papers by major scholars introduces students to the history of the book in the West from late Antiquity to the publication of the Gutenberg Bible and the beginning of the print revolution. The collection opens with wide-ranging papers on handwriting and the physical make-up of the book. In the second group of papers the emphasis is on the 'look' of the book, complemented by a third group dealing with scribes, readers and the availability of books. The editors' introduction provides an overview of the medieval book.
