Overview

Praise for Leading the Learner-Centered Campus

"This book moves far beyond previous thinking about change. Many in higher education want to create more learner-centered campuses but grapple with how to do it. Harris and Cullen show us how to lead the change to more learner-centered campuses-and offer very practical tools for getting there from here. Every campus that takes student learning seriously should be having the conversation that this book advances and supports." -John Tagg, author, The Learning Paradigm College

"This is a dynamite text for all leaders in higher education who want to implement change. It starts with a deceptively simple idea-that change needs to be 'learner-centered,' not just in the classroom, but in every aspect of a campus. Achieving that end is far from simple, but the authors make clear that it's well within reach if readers pay close attention to the wisdom in this book." -Thomas Ehrlich, senior scholar, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and former president, Indiana University

"At a time when most of higher education is seeking effective ways to maximize the value of student-centered learning, Harris and Cullen provide a comprehensive road map for completing the kind of paradigm shift that can accomplish just that . . . This book merits the attention of everyone with a stake in the future of higher education." -Anthony J. Diekema, former president, Calvin College

"If higher education is going to provide what students will need in the twenty-first century, it'll have to complete the transition from teaching to learning that Barr and Tagg proposed back in 1995. Leading the Learner-Centered Campus is an indispensable resource for professors and administrators who are committed to the success of today's college students." -Jeffrey L. Buller, author, The Essential College Professor, The Essential Academic Dean, and The Essential Department Chair
