Demography by Peter R Cox( Book )

86 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demography is the study by statistical methods of human populants involving the measurement of their size, growth and diminution, the proportions living within some areas, being born, marrying, having children or dying and the related functions of fertility, nuptially and morality. This book begins by defining a number of concepts which are useful for demographic analysis, including the significant events in life and types of statistical data which are collected, published and used. It then describes the various kinds of change which can occur and the underlying causes - social, economic and political. The central section provides an account of the history of population growth and development, and of the situation on an international and national scale. Resources available for the support of mankind and their relationship with living standards are explored. The politics of population and the prospects for the future are also described

The themes of this volume are equality and inequality in education. Given the doubling of students in higher education and the questioning directed to the traditional role, and the nature of higher educational institutions, this conference was designed to focus on education at all levels and on the preparation for the professions and public service. The contents are: biological inequality and education; the psychology of primary education; the practice of education at the primary stage; making adults more equal; the scope and limitations of public educational policy; the internal structure and organization of comprehensive education examiniations in education; the Galton lecture 1974: the docimological dilemma of quality control and quantity surveying; international differences in higher education; student participation and higher education; aims of today in the education of the lawyer; the education of the professional and of the manager; and unsolved problems in medical education. Issues debated in previous symposia covering various sociobiological aspects of contemporary problems are noted to remain unresolved, and beliefs held earlier concerning the potential of education as a tool of social engineering are stated to be regarded by some as native and contradicted by research evidence.

Personalising learning in open-plan schools by Vaughan Prain( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can widely acknowledged challenges facing regional secondary schools with high concentrations of low SES students, ineffectual curricula, and poor levels of student engagement, attendance, and wellbeing, be addressed? In this book we report on key outcomes of the Bendigo Education Plan that aimed to improve the academic attainment and wellbeing of 3000 regional secondary students. This Plan entailed rebuilding four Years 7-10 colleges, and developing a differentiated and personalised curriculum, with teachers team-teaching in open-plan settings. We analyse how and why teachers and students adapted to these new practices. We focus on both generic changes in the schools, around the use of ICTs and the organisation of the curriculum, and on specific approaches to teaching and learning in English, mathematics, science, social studies and studio arts. This book provides research-based guidelines on how the curriculum can be renewed and enacted effectively in these and like schools. In analysing a large-scale attempt to address the challenge of making learning personalised and meaningful for this cohort of students, our book addresses larger questions about quality secondary curriculum and successful teacher professional learning support."
Adapting to teaching and learning in open-plan schools by Vaughan Prain( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years many countries have built or renovated schools incorporating open plan design. These new spaces are advocated on the basis of claims that they promote fresh, productive ways to teach and learn that address the needs of students in this century, resulting in improved academic and well-being outcomes. These new approaches include teachers planning and teaching in teams, grouping students more flexibly, developing more coherent and comprehensive curricula, personalising student learning experiences, and providing closer teacher-student relationships. In this book we report on a three-year study of six low SES Years 7-10 secondary schools in regional Victoria, Australia, where staff and students adapted to these new settings. In researching this transitional phase, we focused on the practical reasoning of school leaders, teachers and students in adapting organisational, pedagogical, and curricular structures to enable sustainable new learning environments. We report on approaches across the different schools to structural organisation of students in year-level groupings, distributed leadership, teacher and pre-service teacher professional learning, student advocacy and wellbeing, use of techno-mediated learning, personalising student learning experiences, and curriculum design and enactment. We found that these new settings posed significant challenges for teachers and students and that successful adaptation depended on many interconnected factors. We draw out the implications for successful adaptation in other like settings"--Jacket
