Implementing Communities of Practice in Higher Education

In this edited collection, the authors pick up the communities of practice (CoP) approach of sharing practice in their reflection on the experience of taking their CoP vision from a dream to reality. Their stories articulate the vision, the passion and the challenge of working within and/or changing existing institutional culture and practice. The book discusses strategies that worked and considers the lessons learnt to inspire future dreamers and schemers. The multiple perspectives provided in the case studies will assist higher education leaders, as well as academic and professional staff, in establishing or assessing CoPs. The book offers insights into implementation strategies, practical guidelines and ideas on how CoP theoretical underpinnings can be tailored to the higher education context.

The final pages, sadder still, speak of love forgotten when remembrance of things past has faded. These are eternal tales of Love—its many faces, its many meanings. Includes Readers Guide

The Food of Love

Love: Tender. Spiritual. Lustful. Liberating. Suffocating. A different truth, a different quest for each of these lovers, dreamers and schemers. Katherine McKenzie, a young woman living in Boston in 1918, yearns for love but is afraid of it. When tragedy sets her adrift, she returns to her rural Kansas roots where she rediscovers her past and confronts her fears. In a second story, a lonely and discouraged man finds new hope in the mystical message of an inspired dreamer who reached for the heavens. Is music truly the food of love? A pair of cautionary tales warns that no matter how sweet the song, one must always ask, “Who is the singer?” The dark side of love lurks here too—in those who love only themselves and pay the price for their wicked dreams. And there is a bittersweet tale of love remembered on the threshold of death. The final pages, sadder still, speak of love forgotten when remembrance of things past has faded. These are eternal tales of Love—its many faces, its many meanings. Includes Readers Guide

The World That Never Was

Alex Butterworth interweaves group biography, cultural history and meticulous detective work to create a revelatory account of the age. Both intimate and panoramic, it is a story with uncanny resonances for today.

The World That Never Was

The last years of the nineteenth century saw the birth of a new phenomenon: international terrorism. Bombings and assassinations shook the great cities of Europe and America, threatening social order. Fiendish networks of anarchist conspiritors were blamed and the public whipped into a frenzy of anxiety. The reality was rather different. These dramatic events were only the most visible part of a longer, clandestine struggle waged between the forces of revolution and reaction, in which little was as it seemed. Alex Butterworth interweaves group biography, cultural history and meticulous detective work to create a revelatory account of the age. Both intimate and panoramic, it is a story with uncanny resonances for today.

Dreamers and Schemers

How one man brought the Olympics to Los Angeles, fueling the city's urban transformation. Dreamers and Schemers chronicles how Los Angeles’s pursuit and staging of the 1932 Olympic Games during the depths of the Great Depression helped fuel the city’s transformation from a seedy frontier village to a world-famous metropolis. Leading that pursuit was the “Prince of Realtors,” William May (Billy) Garland, a prominent figure in early Los Angeles. In important respects, the story of Billy Garland is the story of Los Angeles. After arriving in Southern California in 1890, he and his allies drove much of the city’s historic expansion in the first two decades of the twentieth century. Then, from 1920 to 1932, he directed the city’s bid for the 1932 Olympic Games. Garland’s quest to host the Olympics provides an unusually revealing window onto a particular time, place, and way of life. Reconstructing the narrative from Garland’s visionary notion to its consequential aftermath, Barry Siegel shows how one man’s grit and imagination made California history.

Whether any plan to enter Mexico was carried out or whether the leaders were U.S. citizens was unimportant to the Mexican government. To Mexico the significance was that the groups recruited, organized, and plotted their entradas from the United States in full view of the U.S. government even as newspapers in both countries published dozens of articles about the endeavors.".

Dreamers  Schemers  and First Blasphemers

In The Beginning It may be the most famous book on earth and also the most maligned. No wonder, for Moses saves eight in a barge and drowns half a million alive. He gives men death as the price of fruit. His heroes act like sheep in wolves' clothing, accustomed to the half-lie. But Moses is to ages past what John is to future events. His Genesis gives us the birth of all - languages, nations, cities and kings, the family, sin, and redemption's plan. And in Dreamers, Schemers, and First Blasphemers, author Joe Conti gives the reasons why: o A first-earth was not lost in cosmic war o Eden was just to the east of Kuwait o Some megaliths may pre-date the flood o The sons of god were indeed angels, but not the fathers of giants. Journey with us to the Promised Land, as Jacob wrestles with God and culture; Rebekah and Sarah champion election; Joseph defines the doctrine of dreams; and Abram is called to nullify Nimrod, antiquity's good boy gone bad. Melchizedek's here, with the glamorous serpent, the ark, and the Tower of Babel. The saints scheme and dream, the wicked blaspheme, but in all of it God gets his due.
