The Last Judgement: Exploring Intellectual Leadership In Higher Education Through Academic Obituaries, Roy Y. Chan Jul 2014

The Last Judgement: Exploring Intellectual Leadership In Higher Education Through Academic Obituaries, Roy Y. Chan

Roy Y. Chan

The literature on leadership in higher education is focused mainly on senior academic leaders with managerial roles. It largely excludes informal and distributed forms of intellectual leadership offered by full professors among others. This article explores the concept of intellectual leadership using academic obituaries. A total of 63 obituaries were collected from Times Higher Education published between 2008 and 2010.

Valorizando A Leitura Epistemológica Na Pesquisa Em Educação, Susy Cristina Rodrigues

Susy Cristina Rodrigues

Demonstramos neste trabalho a importância dos estudos sobre a epistemologia para problematização, desconstrução de preconceitos e contribuição na elaboração qualificada na produção de conhecimento científico. É apresentada a leitura epistemológica de uma pesquisa concluída com o título: “A adolescência inventada e os sujeitos que se inventam na participação social: capturas e rupturas” (CAMPOS, 2008), com base teórica em Sánchez Gamboa (2012, 2013). Ao final desta leitura, após identificar a matriz paradigmática entre a construção da pergunta e da resposta na referida pesquisa, propõe-se o pensamento sobre os limites, erros, acertos e escolhas na pesquisa, a partir do valor da epistemologia.

The desire to create automatons is a familiar theme in human history, and during the age of the Enlightenment mechanical automatons became not only an “emblem of the cosmos”, but a symbol of man’s confidence that he would unlock nature’s greatest mysteries and fully harness her power. And yet only a century later, automatons had begun to represent human repression and servitude, a theme later picked up by writers of science fiction. Man’s confidence undeterred, the endgame of the modern scientific and technological mindset, or MSTM, seems to be increasingly coming into view with the rise of ...

The growing challenges and transformations of the systems and institutions of higher education have emphasized the great significance of its governance. Particularly, we recognize that universities have experienced modifications in recent times that have generated important effects on its stages and decision-making processes. These effects have enhanced the academic and practical interest in this strategic point of view on the contemporary university. In this text, we deal with the general topic of university governance as a subject of study. We examine some approaches that have addressed this issue since the decade of 1970s, especially in the United States and Europe.

Using Ethnography To Understand Twenty-First Century College Life, Constance A. Iloh, William G. Tierney

Ethnography in the field of postsecondary education has served as a magnifying glass bringing into focus university culture and student life. This paper highlights the ways in which ethnography is especially useful for understanding more recent dynamics and shifts in higher education. The authors utilize existing literature to uphold the relevancy of ethnography, while exploring its opportunities for research on adult students, online education, and for-profit colleges in particular. They conclude with methodological recommendations and directions for both qualitative research and higher education scholarship.
