Bringing Theory to Practice, Aug 16, 2016 - College students - 302 pages
Well-Being and Higher Education explores the multiple connections of well-being to higher education and why those connections matter--for the individual lives of students and those who teach; for the institution; and for whether or not the unique promise of higher education to a democratic society can be advanced and realized. The publication's thirty-five original essays and provocations--by some of the most highly respected voices within and beyond the academy--address the theoretical underpinnings and practical expressions of these connections. Well-Being and Higher Education opens the discussion on learning's connection to well-being; responds to current challenges against the state of higher education today; and brings to the forefront a conversation considering the greater purposes of higher education and the need to preserve and revive the institution's role to look beyond itself to a greater good.
