Important History of Alternative Higher Education 27 aprile 2006
Di Tom Kat - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This interesting book presents the history of what is now called Union Institute & University. A experiment in the sixties, this alternative form of educationm was ground-breaking in its time.

Unfortunately, after the death of Robert Conley, the institution fell into the hands of Judith Sturnick and the people that she hired. Like at many other universities they were interested only in their high salaries and what they could take from the university. They were traditional educators who have "dumbed down" the original concept.

This book shows us the history of this educational dream from its optimistic beginnings to its present reality.

New book on Radical Education 25 novembre 2004
Di Brooklyn reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The root of the word "radical" is "radish," and this book shows how the root of many experimental ideas in education grew from the source of the Union Institute & University. "A Union of Voices" shows through many interviews and articles the history of this unusual institution, now beleagered by the many agencies that it first ignored. The traditional universities stole many of its original ideas like the University Without Walls and assimilated them into money making projects. Now UI&U is being attacked by the traditionalal acceditating agencies to became more conventional like them. This book records that long journey.

Thoroughly Enjoyable~ 28 marzo 2005
Di Euneeta Readit - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Hard to imagine an oral history documenting the origin and rise of the non-traditional University Without Walls (a pro-active, learner-centered approach to higher education) is a page-turner. The interviews are fascinating, revealing a greater story; that of progressive post-secondary education throughout the United States, and Cappel does a terrific job providing any details left out by the interviewees.

Important historical document 7 novembre 2004
Di Educator - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
If you are interested in American progressive education and its history, this book is an important addition to your collection. Not only was it lively reading, but was packed with information about the experimental higher education scene of the sixties and seventies. As a model for the Ph.D. non-residental degree, the Union Institute & University was the originator. The story behind the story is a must read for anyone in Higher Education.
