Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"of great practical use to educators, but will also prove insightful to anyone interested in the intellectual, social, and psychological development of young adults at the start of the twenty-first century...One of the real strengths of this book is the plentiful use of concrete examples from student interviews to clarify and illustrate the more theoretical concepts."

“Those interested in strengthening the ties between theory and practice and between faculty and student affairs can find inspiration here. Those committed to developing the co-curriculum to promote self-authorship will have a better sense of how to do that from this book. Learning Partnerships could serve as a text for courses on epistemological development or teaching and learning. It could provide a foundation for professional development for faculty or student affairs practitioners (and examples for doing so are included)….With its focus on practice and experiential education and its personal tone, readers are invited into the worlds of the authors to see the assumptions and principles of the [Learning Partnerships Model] in practice. With this volume, Baxter Magolda and King continue to make significant contributions to higher education and student affairs and encourage learning partnerships to promote students' development.”
