Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A must read for anyone interested in creating educationally sound campus environments. This book provides both a comprehensive review of environmental theory and practical strategies for enhancing student learning."

Nancy J. Evans, associate professor and coordinator, Higher Education Program, Iowa State University

"Practitioners and students of all ages will greatly benefit from reading this synthesis of learning environment research and theory. The book draws on an impressively broad array of literature, and yet is organized for practical use."

Will Barratt, associate professor of counseling, Indiana State University

Many books explore the effects of environments on people, but there are few that examine the complexities of campus settings and how they contribute to student learning and success. Educating by Design fills the information gap by providing a comprehensive model for creating student-friendly and learning-supportive campus environments.

Authors C. Carney Strange and James H. Banning draw from decades of research and experience to present an integrated framework for assessing and understanding academic environments. They describe the key concepts defining effective person-environment interactions and examine how these principles work through four different environmental components: physical, aggregate, organizational, and socially constructed. They also discuss the four conditions for successful learning: inclusion, safety, involvement, and community. Filled with engaging anecdotes and practical examples, this long-awaited volume helps academic administrators and student services professionals to plan effective programs and build supportive learning communities.

Book News Annotation:

Safety, inclusion, involvement, and community experience are here identified as the key elements necessary to create a successful classroom environment. Following this premise, Strange (higher education, Bowling Green State U.) and Banning (education, Colorado State U.) survey recent literature as they examine the impact on learning of different kinds of environments, including physical, aggregate, organizational, and constructed.

Synopsis:

Just as faculty and curriculum are critical concerns for any college or university, other components of the campus environment hold equal significance for student learning and satisfaction. While there have been many books about the effects of environments on people, there have been few that focus on the many complexities of campus settings and how they contribute to student success and the quality of learning experiences. Educating by Design fills the information gap by providing a comprehensive model for creating student-friendly and learning-supportive campus environments.
