Bernard Bull on eTale blog provides the list of books which challenged him with conflicting viewpoints. The list includes
Arum, R., & Roksa, J. (2011). Academically adrift: Limited learning on college campuses. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
What are undergraduates learning in college? This book points to research indicating that the answer may well be “not much.”
Kirp, D. L. (2003). Shakespeare, Einstein, and the bottom line: The marketing of higher education. Cambridge, Mass: Harvard University Press.
Almost a decade old, I contend that the ideas in this book are more relevant today than they were when the book was first published.
