researchED Books

While not K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning specific, I thought that these books might be of interest to some of my readers.

Good morning,
A quick note to remind you that tickets are still available for the brilliant upcoming researchED event in Philadelphia in November. Visit https://researched.org.uk/event/researched-philadelphia-2019/ for more information.
Delegates in Philadelphia will be able to pick up the first two books in our new ‘ResearchED Guide to…’ series. But if you can’t make it to Philly, do make sure you get a copy via our online bookstore.
Copies can be ordered via our website at www.us.johncattbookshop.com or via usual booksellers such as Amazon. If you would like multiple copies, perhaps for all the staff in your department or school, please email Alex via as@johncatt.com for a bulk discount.
In Education Myths, Craig Barton edits a brilliant range of contributions from writers including Doug Lemov; Bob and Elizabeth Bjork; Mark Enser; Andrew Old; Harry Fletcher-Wood; Greg Ashman; and Claire Sealy. Between them, they examine some of the most common myths in teaching, looking at how and why they are allowed to flourish.
Meanwhile, in Explicit and Direct Instruction, Adam Boxer explores the impact of Zig Engleman’s programme of Direct Instruction and its cousin explicit instruction. The book is a structured scientific investigation into how we impart information and content in ways that are as optimally memorable as possible, written by some of the pre-eminent voices in education, including Kris Boulton; Greg Ashman; Gethyn Jones; Tom Needham; Lia Martin; Amy Coombe; Naveen Rivzi; John Blake.
As researchED founder and series editor Tom Bennett writes in his foreword: “Nothing here is incontestable. Many of the points raised are supported rather than proven. That’s the point: a professional community of educators looks at the best available evidence bases and maps that onto the structured analyses of professional experience, and attempts to reconcile the two. This overlap of craft and science is, for me, the sweet spot, and exactly where we need to be. Embracing uncertainty with the best tools we have, not leaping into the darkness.”
Best wishes

As a valued subscriber, Rutledge offers you an exclusive 30% off discount code ADS19 when you purchase Transactional Distance and Adaptive Learning: Planning the Future of Higher Education directly from the publisher

Transactional Distance and Adaptive Learning: Planning the Future of Higher Education takes a fresh look at one of the pioneering educational theories that accommodates the impact of information and communications technologies in learning. The theory of transactional distance (TTD), developed by Dr. Michael G. Moore, provides a distinct analytical and planning foundation for educators to conduct an overarching inquiry into transitioning from mass instructional and management systems in higher education to dynamic and transformational futures that focus on each individual learner.

Based on the TTD, the authors Dr. Farhad Saba, and Dr. Rick Shearer, provide a comprehensive pragmatic planning method to instructors, administrators, students, and other stakeholders for assessing the current state of their instructional, learning, and management practices and developing alternative models to prescribe future improvements in their institution.

This self-organized, and adaptive method includes current and emergent properties of:

  • hardware, software, and telecommunications systems that allow faculty, students, and administrators to communicate;
  • instructional and curriculum systems that provide teaching and learning environments for faculty and students; and
  • management, societal, and global systems that influence how institutions are supported, funded, and managed.

Copyright, Content, & Control: Student Authorship Across Educational Technology PlatformsThere is no longer any doubt about whether the field has been paying attention to “the question of who owns language” (Lunsford & West, p. 383). Today, a vast trove of IP scholarship exists within disciplinary coffers, ranging from issues of textual circulation (e.g., DeVoss & Porter, 2006; Edwards, 2018; Gries, 2015; Ridolfo & DeVoss, […]
