Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis book highlights the effects of power within the higher educational process, and argues that in order to understand the student experience we have to take seriously the institution as a context for learning.It considers key questions such as:
- Why is the student experience of higher education sometimes negative or restricted?
- How does power operate within the institution?
- What are the forces that limit or enable student agency?
- How can institutions of higher education create conditions which best support more enabling forces?
