Building an Academic Culture of Praxis
Rice, Larry; Alexakis, George
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v11 n1 p123-132 Spr 2015
Facilitation of student learning is arguably the most important action of higher education. The paper focuses on student-centered education, praxis, and assessment in the context of a particular university campus. It considers how colleges can bridge theory and practice with the goal of achieving praxis campus-wide. The paper examines the process undertaken by the campus to holistically apply praxis. It discusses the benefits of a student-centered approach that extend beyond the classroom to include administration and staff. The resulting unified organizational culture can have profound positive effects on the student learning experience and the entire college community.
