Clark, Steven C.; Griffin, Rick A.; Martin, Cameron K. – Innovative Higher Education, 2012
Institutional policies and policy systems are vital to the well-being of institutions of higher education.

We describe six hallmarks of high quality service-learning and explain how these considerations guided the development of a Transitional Coaching Program (TCP) during the first three years of implementation. We have demonstrated that the TCP is acceptable, feasible, and sustainable. Improvements have been seen in the degree of impact on learning…

Wright, Mary C.; Bergom, Inger; Brooks, Michael – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
As more faculty members utilize student-centered methods, we should also expect to see an increase in graduate teaching assistants (TAs) who are asked to co-teach these classes. However, little is written about the challenges TAs face and the adjustments they make when teaching student-centered courses. This study examined a student-centered…

Blumberg, Phyllis; Pontiggia, Laura – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
We describe an objective way to measure whether curricula, educational programs, and institutions are learner-centered. This technique for benchmarking learner-centeredness uses rubrics to measure courses on 29 components within Weimer's five dimensions. We converted the scores on the rubrics to four-point indices and constructed histograms that…

In this article we discuss technology in higher education, specifically its role in hybrid or online…

Lee, Virginia S. – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
Since the publication of The Boyer Commission Report (1998), inquiry-guided learning, has acquired a certain cachet and is often suggested as a universal answer for various teaching and learning ills, particularly in research universities. However, while the report focused on inquiry-guided learning, it defined the term only generally or chiefly…

Ahuna, Kelly H.; Tinnesz, Christine Gray; VanZile-Tamsen, Carol – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
In the late 1980s a large northeastern university implemented a critical thinking course for undergraduate students. Combining insights from cognitive psychology and philosophy, this class was designed to give students concrete strategies to promote self-regulated learning and ensure academic success. The analyses in this study are based on…

Zambo, Debby – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
Debates about the education doctorate continue; and, while some individuals focus on the problematic, others work to distinguish this degree from the Ph.D. The author is part of the latter, and in this article I explain how faculty members at one university are using action research as a signature pedagogy to create stewards of practice, that is,…

Andrade, Maureen Snow – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
Regional accrediting bodies require evidence that higher education institutions are meeting their stated goals. Institutions have answered this call for accountability by assessing student learning. Managing change in order to implement assessment practices is a challenge, however, particularly when autonomy, academic freedom, and shared…

Kezar, Adrianna – Innovative Higher Education, 2011
This article examines a common problem in higher education--how to create more widespread use of improved practices, often commonly referred to as innovations. I argue that policy models of scale-up are often advocated in higher education but that they have a dubious history in community development and K-12 education and that higher education…
