The Complete Facilitator S Handbook. John Heron, well known for his previous books, The Facilitator's Handbook (1989) and Group Facilitation (1993), both of which have become standard reading on the subject, now integrates, builds on and updates those works to provide this comprehensive guide to making a success of facilitation. The key to the new book lies in the way in which it helps facilitators to understand and develop a personal style to their work. Analytical in approach and highly structured, it offers strong theoretical content on the fundamental thinking underlying facilitation (which includes exploration of its dimensions and modes, whole person learning, and a comprehensive group dynamic theory) but combines this with a wide repertoire for practical action designed to enable facilitators to build up their skills effectively. John Heron's distinctive merit here is his demonstration of the benefit to be derived when such skills not only suit facilitator's own personality but can also be matched to whatever situation facilitators encounter. This publication makes John Heron's seminal work newly accessible - for it is now available for the first time in paperback - to a new generation of facilitators in both training and education.

Handbook For Teaching And Learning In Higher Education. While white racism has global dimensions, it has an unshakeable lease on life in South African political organizations and its educational system. Donnarae MacCann and Yulisa Maddy here provide a thorough and provocative analysis of South African children's literature during the key decade around Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Their research demonstrates that the literature of this period was derived from the same milieu -- intellectual, educational, religious, political, and economic -- that brought white supremacy to South Africa during colonial times. This volume is a signal contribution to the study of children's literature and its relation to racism and social conditions.

The Rights And Responsibilities Of The Modern University. This substantially revised and updated second edition includes discussion of recent judicial, legislative and regulatory college safety mandates, modern risk management and prevention practices, and the explosion in college safety and wellness issues (suicide, active shooter violence, sexual assault, etc.) while remaining faithful to the core vision of the first edition. The second edition also addresses the disturbing rise of a new nemesis of the facilitator university -- ''Compliance U.'' Crushing new regulatory burdens significantly impact academic freedom and autonomy, and may interfere with the facilitator's chief goal of creating a sustainable, reasonably safe and responsible college environment.
