This book was released on 2015-03-29 with total page 600 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Is love the place where psychological observation and spiritual wisdom about healing meet? If love is associated with healing of all sorts, how do I more consciously set about to grow in love, seeking healing for myself and for my neighbours, community and world? How do I encourage others in their journeys into love? Drawing on a broad Christian heritage, a deep respect for the insights of other religious and spiritual traditions and two decades of work in welfare and clinical settings, psychologist Sharon Southwell encourages spiritual seekers of all backgrounds to consider these questions for themselves. Structured in 52 Reflections, each followed by 'Invitations', The Life of Love invites you to grow in love by embracing life-giving connection to yourself, to others, your community, to art, nature and to your ultimate context, whether you experience this as God or as some other immanent or transcendent spiritual connection.

Summary Book Review Reflections on Learning, Life and Work by Maureen Ryan:
Download or read book Reflections on Learning, Life and Work written by Maureen Ryan and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-10-26 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book records the stories of doctoral study experiences of the twenty-two writers. These research degree experiences are embedded in the lives and careers of the writers and the twenty-two distinctive projects draw from those individual lives and careers. The authors write about meeting the continuing demands of older and younger family members and of their struggles with ill health and work place demands while working through their studies. There is also the joy of coming to see themselves and being seen as research scholars and supporting and celebrating with others as they move through candidature proposals and ethics applications to graduation. Apart from the stories that bring the writers to their particular projects and that colour their individual journeys, storying methodology is most often selected for the research, all of which is undertaken within the arts, humanities and education. Phenomenology, narrative, ethnography are central to most of the studies and the detailed accounts of each research topic, methods and outcomes locate each of the research projects in rich bodies of knowledge. Valued writers and readers in these fields, Mary Beattie and Elaine Martin have read each reflection and provided in turn a foreword and an afterword which bookend the volume and further enrich these reflections on learning, life and work.

Summary Book Review Employing Community-Based Experiential Learning in Teacher Education by Gary Harfitt:
Download or read book Employing Community-Based Experiential Learning in Teacher Education written by Gary Harfitt and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2020-07-18 with total page 188 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book positions itself at the intersection of the interrelationship between three key areas of initial teacher education: constructivist learning theories, teaching practicum, and the promotion of reflective practices. It presents an innovative approach to teacher preparation at undergraduate and postgraduate levels by critically examining the implementation of a mandatory experiential learning block across subject disciplines on undergraduate and postgraduate teacher preparation courses. This book presents multiple examples and case studies of these varied experiential learning projects that will inform academics, teachers and policymakers. Through these rich examples the authors set out to address the theory-practice dilemma in teacher education, where teachers-to-be are often positioned as ‘consumers’ of educational research in classrooms, read reference books and academic papers on teaching, and observe university and school experts before applying the same acquired theories and practices in their own classes. In the book the authors argue for a shift away from this conventional teacher-learning curriculum that is characterised by the separation of theory and practice, choosing instead to promote pedagogy and methods courses where practice underpins all learning. These pedagogical perspectives include the promotion of a diverse range of learning contexts (including on- and off-campus learning sites) for student teachers to experience during their time on teacher education courses.
Summary Book Review Teaching: Dilemmas, Challenges & Opportunities by Robyn Ewing:
Download or read book Teaching: Dilemmas, Challenges & Opportunities written by Robyn Ewing and published by Cengage AU. This book was released on 2019-09-26 with total page 376 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "We have not sought in this book, to define ‘best practice’ for you, but have rather, challenged you to think about ways in which to teach intelligently, insightfully and respectfully." - How does a teacher deal with a student’s challenging behaviour in the classroom? - Is it fair to adopt information and communication technologies that favour students who have access to sophisticated devices such as tablets in their own home? - How, during the professional experience, is an education student to act when his or her beliefs about learning are not congruent with those of the supervising teacher? - Should students be grouped in terms of their ability? These and many more issues arise daily in our early childhood, primary and secondary learning environments. Teaching, 6e takes a holistic approach to classroom teaching and learning. It considers the complexities and opportunities embedded in meeting learners’ needs in diverse and ever-changing contexts. It encourages pre-service teachers to become active learners of teaching, how to think like teachers and to consider the fundamental aspects of teaching. It directs pre-service teachers to useful teaching resources, in text, in references and online. Case studies and reflection opportunities encourage pre-service teachers to consider their own strengths and issues, the diversity of learning styles in their students, their school and wider community as well as government and ethical requirements. It raises student awareness of what it really means to teach and how they can do it. Students will continue to refer to this well-researched and easy-to-use text throughout their qualification, in their professional placement and into their teaching career.

Book excerpt: I knew soon after my mother died that I would write about the experience. After Eleanor is Alison Haynes' first narrative non-fiction work and is an intimate but never sentimental account of the days, weeks and ultimately years following her mother's premature and lonely death in England. After learning of Eleanor's passing, Alison travelled to England to help her sister make funeral arrangements. Over time, she began piecing together details of her mother's life, a process which led to reflections on her own life and that of her young family and Alison Haynes a determination to live life more fully. As trinkets are claimed and books from her library are shared around, Alison learns of her mother's hopes and aspirations. As she reflects on her mother's life, Alison's memories touch on Eleanor's experiences of living in the UK, Asia, Egypt and the USA. After Eleanor will resonate with many women who face the inevitability of losing their own mothers or who are in the stages of motherhood themselves. It's a gentle, moving and easy-toread memoir written with great competence by Alison, and is all the stronger for its quietness.

Book excerpt: This book investigates Australia’s relationship with the Eurovision Song Contest over time and place, from its first screening on SBS in 1983 to Australia's inaugural national selection in 2019. Beginning with an overview of Australia’s Eurovision history, the contributions explore the contest’s role in Australian political participation and international relations; its significance for Australia’s diverse communities, including migrants and the LGBTQIA+ community; racialised and gendered representations of Australianness; changing ideas of liveness in watching the event; and a reflection on teaching Australia’s first undergraduate course dedicated to the Eurovision Song Contest. The collection brings together a group of scholar-fans from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives — including history, politics, cultural studies, performance studies, and musicology — to explore Australia’s transition from observer to participant in the first thirty-six years of its love affair with the Eurovision Song Contest.

Summary Book Review Reflections of Life and Love in Australia by Margaret Lynette Sharp:
Download or read book Reflections of Life and Love in Australia written by Margaret Lynette Sharp and published by Createspace Independent Pub. This book was released on 2011 with total page 116 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Reflections of Life and Love in Australia' is a collection of Short Stories set in Australia. Mostly romantic in theme, they are easy and quick to read, and make great reading for bed-time, or when time is limited such as waiting for appointments. A few of the tales fall into the human interest category, such as 'Hand in Hand', which delves into parents' dilemma over their child's love of sport, and 'A Secret, Banished', a grandmother's resolve to improve her literacy. Readers have praised the three earlier volumes in the series as being easier to understand and relate to than Short Stories written by others. This fourth book is, I believe, of equal interest and quality to the others. If you are looking for a well-written selection of Short Stories, devoid of bad language and suitable for adults males or females, why not give consider 'Reflections of Life and Love in Australia'?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Discussion of bioscience ethics requires understanding of the science that underpins biological systems impinging on our lives. Unencumbered by the formal structure of ethics, bioethics presents a forum for discussion of practical matters of individual and collective concern. This comprehensive text is a guide to the essentials of bioscience ethics and an interface between applied science and applied bioethics. Early chapters embrace topics affecting human reproduction – substance abuse and parenthood, aging gametes and congenital malformations, child abuse and its biological consequences. Intermediate chapters deal with end-of-life care and euthanasia, human fertility, assisted reproductive technologies, genetic engineering, and cloning. Remaining chapters challenge human-dominated ecosystems. Population growth, economic activity, and warfare – with its environmental consequences – are reviewed. A background section describes the evolution of ethical consciousness, explores the future, and proposes that the reworking of ethical boundaries can enhance mature decision-making in harmony with changing technology.
