Item description for Teaching beyond Teaching by Peter Otiato Ojiambo...
This book investigates the relationship between a given individual's life experiences and how those experiences determine, shape, and impact on his society. Specifically, it examines the role of Geoffrey William Griffin in the evolution and growth of Kenyan education. It uses leadership and relationality theories to interpret his involvement in Kenyan education. In this exploration, the study seeks to gain an understanding of the person of Griffin, identifies and examines forces that accounted for his involvement in Kenyan education and interprets how his establishment of Starehe Boys Centre reflects Kenya's educational history. It further examines his insights on the purpose of education and effective management of educational institutions. Methodologically, the book uses qualitative inquiry approach and is designed as an interpretive educational biography. Overall, the study argues that individual educators play a significant role in the process of social change. Their study illuminates complex historical, social, political, and economic contexts of their societies. This is a must book for courses on educational biography, administration, leadership and curriculum. It is a valuable resource for all stakeholders in the education process, researchers engaged in educational thought, theory, and practice, colonial, and post-colonial Kenyan and African educational history.
