The work examines the foundation and development of Liberal Arts Colleges in the Bombay Presidency/Western India during the 19th century. It describes the transplantation of administrative structures, conceptions of a liberal education and a syllabus from the British metropolitan area to colonial Western India. Based on the analysis of historical sources the study tries to understand the broader impact of British higher education on social and political change in Western India. The Liberal Arts Colleges within the University of Bombay are described as new arenas for social interaction producing a number of outspoken and self-confident graduates openly challenging the primacy of colonial rule in the early 20th century.

Der Band gibt einen Einblick in die Praxis des Lehrerhandels, deren Ziel die Stärkung von Schülerinnen und Schülern in Risikolagen ist. Am Beispiel von 'Service-Learning' wird gezeigt, wie Resilienzförderung in den Schulalltag integriert werden kann.

Across the globe, American-style and liberal arts universities are being established. From the first, the American University of Beirut, established in 1866, to the liberal arts institutions being established in Saudi Arabia, Ghana, and elsewhere in the twenty-first century, there is a clear sense of the global desire for the American approach to higher education as a way of counteracting traditional, more narrowly defined university educations. However, these universities operate in a distinctive dynamic that must learn to bridge one culture with another, and leadership of such institutions must by its nature focus on such complexities and tensions. Throughout the chapters of this book, this unique element of these universities will be better understood through the stories and experiences as presented by their presidents, provosts, and other academic leaders.

Comparative research on higher education in developing and transitional countries is often focused on such issues as access, finance, student mobility and the impact of globalization, but there has been little attention to curriculum and the forces that shape it. Confronting Challenges to the Liberal Arts Curriculum fills an important gap in the literature by examining the context, content, challenges, and successes of implementing liberal arts coursework within undergraduate curriculum. In order to fully understand the place of liberal education in each location, chapter authors have employed a wide lens to investigate the influences upon curricular content in China, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, South Africa, and Turkey. Thus, this volume explores how curricular content is decided, how educational programs are being structured, and whether countries are viewing higher education as more than just the preparation of students for specialized knowledge. By providing detailed case studies of these countries at crucial transition points in their higher education systems, each chapter outlines the state of higher education system and the government’s role, the impact of imported models, the presence of a liberal education, the curricular formation, and best examples of successful programs. Ultimately, this volume depicts how global influences have come to rest in developing countries and how market forces far removed from faculty and students have shaped the undergraduate curriculum. This valuable book is of interest to scholars and researchers in Higher Education as well as practitioners working to foster student and faculty exchange and raise awareness of curricular issues.

This book investigates the social history of colonial Bombay in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. Drawing together strands that have hitherto been treated separately, and based on a wide range of untapped archival sources, this book offers the first systematic analytical account of historical change in a modernizing colonial city. In highlighting the colonial experience of historical processes that have attracted considerable attention in recent scholarship, it restores the much neglected global dimension to a comparative discussion of these themes. At the same time the volume demonstrates the manner in which the globalizing forces unleashed by European imperialism were appropriated and transformed in the colonial context.

What explains the peculiar trajectory of the university and liberal education in India? Can we understand the crisis in the university in terms of the idea of education underlying it? This book explores these vital questions and traces the intellectual history of the idea of education and the cluster of concepts associated with it. It probes into the cultural roots of liberal education and seeks to understand its scope, effects and limits when transplanted into the Indian context. With an extensive analysis of the philosophical writing on the idea of university and education in the West and colonial documents on education in India, the book reconstructs the ideas of Gandhi and Tagore on education and learning as a radical alternative to the inherited, European model. The author further reflects upon how we can successfully deepen liberal education in India as well as construct alternative models that will help us diversify higher learning for future generations. Lucid, extensive and of immediate interest, this book will be useful for scholars and researchers interested in the history and philosophy of education and culture, social epistemology, ethics, postcolonial studies, cultural studies and public policy.

The Pursuit of Liberal Education is a scholarly but accessible book on philosophy of education. It also involves a look at a philosophy of man, mind, conduct, government and progress. There is a discussion of the humanities and sciences, along with some social criticism, too. It calls for a revival of liberal education. It redefines liberal education as both a preservation of the best of the cultural heritage, and as a helpful guide for social reform. Thinking and learning about ideas and values across the spectrum of knowledge are considered. This is an indispensable book that puts everything in perspective.
