  • Higher education is of growing public and political importance for society and the economy. Globalisation is transforming it from a local and national concern into one of international significance. In order to fulfil societal, governmental and business sector needs, many universities are aiming to (re-)position themselves. The book initially considers their "compass". They aspire to transformational planning, mission and strategy in which social justice is important, people are not treated as mere means to an end, and traditional moral positions are respected. This transformational urge is sometimes vitiated by blunt demands of new public management that overlook universities? potent...

  • Today's world involves increased contact among people from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds, creating problems for many people. This book views diversity through the eyes of the children of diversity: the offspring of "mixed" marriages between different races, religions, or nationalities. Using personal case studies, this comprehensive work examines the difficulties that can accompany close, interpersonal relationships across racial or cultural backgrounds. Identity struggles are common, as the author finds people who are told they must identify as Black because they look Black - and are later informed, sometimes by the same person, that they are not "really Black." They attemp...

  • Symbolic Landscapes presents a definitive collection of landscape/place studies that explores symbolic, cultural levels of geographical meanings. Essays written by philosophers, geographers, architects, social scientists, art historians, and literati, bring specific modes of expertise and perspectives to this transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary study of the symbolic level human existential spatiality. Placing emphasis on the pre-cognitive genesis of symbolic meaning, as well as embodied, experiential (lived) geography, the volume offers a fresh, quasi-phenomenological approach. The editors articulate the epistemological doctrine that perception and imagination form a continuum ...

  • Powerful Pedagogy: Self-Study of a Teacher Educator’s Practice is the outcome of the author’s systematically questioning her assumptions about teaching and, in various ways, gives voice to the many individuals who have had an impact on the development of the author’s pedagogy as a mathematics teacher educator. Using self-study as both a lens and a methodology to research her practice over the past three years, the author examines the impact of reflection and reflective practice in pre-service teacher education; voice, silence and that which remains "unsaid"; the ways in which teacher identities emerge and develop, and the role of authority and power in learning about teaching.

  • Why is some practical ethics training a now requirement of nearly all professional training programmes? The short answer is that it is thought to be conducive to ethical decision-making and ethical behaviour. In recent years, the received idea that competency in moral reasoning implies moral responsibility has been the subject of much critical attention. Today, researchers in moral education widely regard moral reasoning as but one among at least 4 dimensions of moral development alongside moral motivation, moral character and moral sensitivity. Reflecting these developments, educationalists in the diverse fields of medicine, education, business, philosophy and nursing now openly ques...

  • The area of aerosol research is extensive. Therefore, no attempt has been made toachieve a comprehensive coverage of the results obtained in the area to date. The main focus of this book is the theoretical basis of the aerosol optics. The results presented are very general and can be applied in many particular cases. The first section is concernedwith the classification of the different aerosol particles existing in the terrestrial atmo-sphere with respect to their chemical composition and their origin (e.g., dust and sea salt aerosols, smoke, and biological and organic aerosols). In the second chapter, I intro- duce the chief notions of aerosol optics, such as absorption, scatteri...
