Curriculum is a key issue for trainee teachers in the lifelong learning sector and a core component of most courses. It lies at the heart of the work of teachers and trainers, it shapes the programmes and courses that are taught, and dictates which students can have access to courses. What goes in to the curriculum is argued over by governments, employers, parents and educationalists. How the curriculum is funded can change on a yearly basis. Access to a particular curriculum can raise or diminish the life chances of the learners involved. This book provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of the key issues surrounding the curriculum. Written for all those working towards QTLS, it provides examples and case studies from working FE colleges, adult education centres and work-based learning contexts as well as offering succinct summaries of key theories and debates relating to the curriculum. This fully revised Second Edition reflects the latest policies and thinking, has a new chapter on the implications of e-learning on curricula, and includes a full glossary of key terms and concepts. Jonathan Tummons has worked in higher education since 1995. After six years as a lecturer in teacher education in the further education sector, in 2009 he took up his current post as senior lecturer in education at Teesside University where he is also research co-ordinator for education and a member of the management board for the Social Futures Institute, Teesside's research centre for the social sciences.

Besser als die Wirklichkeit!

Warum wir von Computerspielen profitieren und wie sie die Welt verändern

Warum Computerspiele nicht blöd, sondern schlau machen Die Menschheit spielt. Immerzu. Überall. Ununterbrochen. Über 3 Milliarden Stunden werden jede Woche weltweit mit Spielen verbracht. Und die Zahl wächst, denn immer mehr Menschen erliegen der Faszination von Computerspielen. Aber muss man deshalb klagen über Isolation und Kulturverfall? – Jane McGonigal, laut »BusinessWeek« eine der zehn wichtigsten und innovativsten Spieleentwicklerinnen der Welt, kehrt die Perspektive um und stellt die spannende Frage: Was, wenn wir die immense Kreativität, die Leidenschaft und das Engagement, das wir ins Spielen investieren, für die reale Welt nutzbar machen? Computerspiele bieten Belohnungen, Herausforderungen und Siege, die uns die reale Welt nur allzu oft vorenthält. Aber wer sagt, dass wir das Potenzial von Spielen allein zur Wirklichkeitsflucht und zu Unterhaltungszwecken nutzen müssen? Für Jane McGonigal sind Gamer hoch kompetente Problemlöser und passionierte Teamplayer. Ihre bestechende These: Nutzen wir diese enormen Ressourcen doch, um unsere sozialen, wirtschaftlichen oder medizinischen Probleme zu lösen! Ein überwältigend neuer und überzeugender Blick auf die positive Wirkung, die im Spielen steckt – eine bahnbrechende Analyse, mit der Jane McGonigal eindrucksvoll bestätigt, dass sie von der Zeitschrift »Fast Company« zu Recht unter die »100 kreativsten Menschen der Wirtschaft« gewählt wurde!

Lifelong Learning (LLL) scheint eines der zentralen Schlagworte unserer heutigen Zeit zu sein. Unabhängig davon, ob man die Diskussionen rund um eine globalisierte Wissensgesellschaft betrachtet, sich mit den Herausforderungen zur Qualifizierung von Arbeitnehmerinnen und Arbeitnehmern auf zunehmend international gewordenen Arbeitsmärkten beschäftigt oder ob es um die Innovationskraft von Unternehmen geht – fortwährend „am Ball“ des aktuellen Wissens zu sein, ist heutzutage die Conditio sine qua non. Auch Universitäten und Hochschulen sind zunehmend aufgefordert, im Rahmen ihres gesellschafts- und bildungspolitischen Auftrages lebenslange Lernprozesse in der Aus- und Weiterbildung zu ermöglichen. Wie nun Lifelong Learning an Universitäten „lebbar“ gemacht werden kann, welche Konzepte in diesem Bereich vorhanden sind, welche Formen und Formate bereits erfolgreich umgesetzt werden und welche wesentlichen Aspekte für die Zukunft von Lifelong Learning Relevanz haben, wird in diesem Buch von renommierten Autorinnen und Autoren untersucht.
