Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume offers a compAndium of the best ideas, analyses, and practices relating to the undergraduate curriculum as described by leading figures in the field. The Handbook of the Undergraduate Curriculum contains both conceptual and practical information on effective practices, research, management, and assessment. In thirty-four original chapters, top practitioners and scholars detail a range of philosophies, frameworks, program designs, instructional strategies, and assessment methods being used to strengthen and transform the curriculum. They examine the current state of knowledge and teaching in the disciplines and the forces that will reshape the curriculum in the coming years.

Book News Annotation:

Spotlighting the contentious issues over innovation in undergraduate curricula, Gaff (vice president, Association of American Colleges and Universities), Ratcliff (director, Center for the Study of Higher Education, Penn State), and 55 other contributors survey diverse routes to higher education reform. The unifying premise is that quality education necessitates reversal of the trend toward increasing fragmentation of the academic learning experience. Viewpoints span: the evolving aims of such education from historical, philosophical, and social perspectives; specialized learning in academic disciplines; reform across disciplines; curriculum administration and assessment; and the inevitable tensions between tradition and change.
