Achieving competence, success, and excellence in teaching by Mark Brundrett( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Measuring teaching ability has become a central theme of recent government policy on raising standards in schools, but what does good teaching really mean, and how should we judge competence, success and excellence?" "The book aims to answer these questions by explaining how we identify quality in teaching, and how different teaching methods may be used to achieve the aim of good practice. The authors explore different approaches to successful teaching, and argue that there is no single way of teaching well." "The authors focus particularly on the partnership method of teaching, which not only gives teachers the chance to hit targets, satisfying governors, inspectors and parents, but also allows pupils to develop their own individual interests. In this way, teachers are able to move beyond a set of competencies towards long-term success and excellence." "This thought-provoking book will appeal to teachers in all sectors of education, from primary school to higher education level."--Jacket

Working with mycorrhizas in forestry and agriculture by Mark Brundrett( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Portuguese and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual was initially prepared for an ACIAR-sponsored Internatio--nal Mycorrhizal Workshop in Kaiping, China in 1994. The main focus of thisworkshop was to promote the use of mycorrhizal fungi for eucalypt plantation forestry in China, but other mycorrhizal research topics were presented. This document was creeated to provide explanations of the main procedures employed by micorrhizal scientists to work with mycorrhizal fungi and roots in the laboratory, nursery or natural and managed ecosystems. The targeted audience of this manual includes managers of forest nurseries and plantations, horticulturalist and agronomistsas wellas stendets and scientific researches. Practical applications of mycorrhizal research in forestry and agricultural situations, especially using Australian trees and fugi, in the Asian Region have been emphasised. Diagrams and recipes were designed to contain sufficient information to aloww these procedures to be used without additional information or priori exprience. In this manual, emphasis has been placed on techniques which require only readily obtainable and relatively inexpensive equipament and chemicals. We expect that this manual will be especially helpful to scientists who have limited access to sscientific literature. We have also tried to restrict methods presented to thosewe have successfully used ourselves and have endeavoured to reproduce instructions and formulas as clearly an concisely as possible

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many countries face a crisis in recruitment to the most senior positions in schools at a time when arguments rage about the best way to develop our school leaders. Focusing on leadership development in ten diverse cultural contexts, this book brings together some of the most senior commentators in the field of educational leadership development to provide a global perspective on leadership development programmes and practices. The rise of leadership development programmes has presented opportunities for some and challenges for others. These challenges are both practical and conceptual and relate to a series of questions that are unpacked in the book including: What is the appropriate balance between the academic and the practical in leadership programmes? Should provision be located in higher education institutions, in other government sponsored organizations or commissioned from the private sector? Are models of leadership studies derived from the business and industry relevant to schools? How can research into impact inform leadership development policy and strategy? Should programmes be integrated into higher degree provision or should new and innovative forms of accreditation be developed? This book should be fascinating reading for all those engaged in educational research and teaching, and working, in educational leadership
