Open Learning Cultures

Today we are seeing a new form of blended learning: not only is technology enhancing the learning environment but formal and informal learning are combining and there is self- and peer-assessment of results. Open learning cultures are challenging the old and long-practiced methods used by educators and transforming learning into a more student-driven and independent activity , which uses online tools such as blogs, wikis or podcasts to connect resources, students and teachers in a novel way.While in higher education institutions most assessments are still tied to formal learning scenarios, teachers are more and more bound to recognize their students' informal learning processes and networks. This book will help teachers, lecturers and students to better understand how open learning landscapes work, how to define quality and create assessments in such environments, and how to apply these new measures.To this end, Ehlers first elaborates the technological background for more collaborative, distributed, informal, and self-guided learning. He covers the rise of social media for learning and shows how an architecture of participation can change learning activities. These new paradigms are then applied to learning and education to outline what open learning landscapes look like. Here he highlights the shift from knowledge transfer to competence development, the increase in lifelong learning, and the importance of informal learning, user generated content, and open educational resources. He then shows how to manage quality by presenting a step by step guide to developing customized quality concepts for open learning landscapes. Finally, several methods dealing with assessment in these new environments are presented, including guidelines, templates and use cases to exemplify the approaches.Overall, Ehlers argues for assessment as an integral part of learning processes, with quality assurance as a method of stimulating a quality culture and continuous quality development rather than as a simple controlling exercise.

Engineering of Crystalline Materials Properties
181,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume collects the state of the art in molecular materials. It collects the lecture notes of a series of lectures given by some of the best specialists in the field at the 2007 Erice International School of Crystallography -and also a NATO-ASI course-. The school developed along two parallel lines. First we stablished 'where we are' in terms of modeling, design, synthesis and applications of crystalline solids with predefined properties. Second, we attempted to define current and possible futuristic lines of development in the quest for novel molecule-based materials with potential applications in magnetism, conductivity and superconductivity, non-linear optics (NLO), drug delivery, and nanotechnology. TOC:Preface. List of Contributors. Biomineralization Design Strategies And Mechanisms of Mineral Formation: Operating At the Edge Instability.- Self-Assembled Monolayers As Templates For Inorganic Crystallization: A Bio-Inspired Approach.- Databases In Crystal Engineering.- Case Studies on Intermolecular Interactions In Crystalline Metals.- Crystal Polymorphism.- Complementarity: Correlating Structural Features with Physical Properties in Supramolecular Systems.- Making Crystals From Crystals: A Solid-State Route To the Engineering of Crystalline Materials, Polymorphs, Solvates And Co-Crystals; Considerations on the Future of Crystal Engineering.- Nanostructured Frameworks for Materials Applications.- Crystal Engineering of Multifunctional Molecular Materials.- Topological Approaches to the Structure of Crystalline and Amorphous Atom Assemblies.- Hydrogen-Bonded Crystals of Exceptional Dielectric Properties.- Chirality In Crystals.-Design, Characterization and Use of Crystalline Thin Film Architectures at the Air-Liquid lnterface.- Design, Synthesis, And Characterization of Molecule-Based Magnet.- From Bonds To Packing: An Energy-Based Crystal Packing Analysis for Molecular Crystals.-On the Calculation and Interpretation of Crystal Energy Landscapes.- NMR Crystallography and the Elucidation of Structure-Property Relationships In Crystalline Solids.- Organic Materials For Nonlinear Optics.- Building Conducting Materials. From Design to Devices.- Hydrogen Bonding and Concurrent Interaction.- Signalling by Modulation of Intermolecular Interactions.- Biomineralization of Organic Phases Associated With Human Diseases.- Crystal Structure Determination From X-Ray Powder Diffraction Data.- Surface Properties Of the Binary Alloy Thin Films.- Subject Index.

Cultural Competence for Public Managers
75,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Our increasingly globalized society demands a higher level of sophistication when working cross-culturally and internationally in local, state, and federal governments; tribal corporations; and nonprofit organizations. Cultural Competence for Public Managers offers guidance on how to become a leader in developing cultural competence in your organization. It provides a conceptual foundation and successful examples for developing cultural competence, including competencies for international collaborations. The authors clearly define terms and provide their own cultural competence model that will add significantly to the current field. They describe the rapidly changing worldwide demographics that are bringing new cultures into many countries and societies. They also examine the issues that culturally diverse landscapes create in the United States, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America, highlighting the differences between assimilationist and the multicultural viewpoints. Drawing on a wide range of examples from universities; local, state, and federal governments; health care service providers; and nonprofit organizations, the book illustrates management practices that are then extended into the relevant cultural context. It also includes examples of cultural missteps and cultural competencies that have worked in practice. Written in an accessible format and style, the book provides practical and useful standards and performance measures, proven coaching and mentoring guides, as well as templates, checklists, exercises, and guidelines. It includes a DVD with coaching guides, checklists. Organized thematically, the book defines the scope of cultural competencies, highlights best practices, and describes variations in responsibility for administering cultural competence for executives, managers, supervisors, and employees.
