MEDIA REVIEWS
Invitational Education and Practice in Higher Education: An International Perspective could, and should, revolutionize college and university teaching. Rather than promoting the "look to the right, look to the left, only one of you will be here at the end of the course" mentality of many professors, Gregory and Edwards have compiled an impressive collection of research and practical application that encourages faculty to promote the success of every student by inviting them to become engaged participants in their own personal and professional development. Whether novices to the theory and practice of invitational education or dedicated practitioners, college faculty will have much to learn from this exceptional new resource that has a prominent place on my bookshelf. -- Vicki A. Wilson, Educational Consultant
Gregory and Edwards have added an important component to the invitational education theory and practice repertoire; much has been written and researched regarding the implementation of invitational education in K-12 settings, but this collection is unique in its focus on higher education. Bravo to all of the contributors who understand that teaching is a human endeavor, even when applied to online learning. This collection deserves wide circulation. -- Sarah M. Butzin, Institute for School Innovation and the International Alliance for Invitational Education Board of Trustees
