Diagnosing The Potential Of Students With Learning Disabilities, Stuart Woodcock 2009 University of Wollongong

Diagnosing The Potential Of Students With Learning Disabilities, Stuart Woodcock

Stuart Woodcock

This study surveyed Australian preservice primary and secondary teachers to investigate their understandings and expectations about students with learning disabilities. Results show that preservice teachers form a negative attribution cycle about students with a learning disability in comparison to a positive attribution cycle formed about students without a learning disability. Furthermore, preservice teachers view students with a learning disability more from a medical model viewpoint that emphasises deficits. Thus, they are generally more positive towards students with a learning disability, less frustrated, more sympathetic, and have lower expectations of their future performances. Philosophically, their educational view towards students with a ...

Determinants Of Foreign Direct Investments In Ceecs: The Role Of Financial Stability, Claudiu Albulescu, Lucian Briciu, Sorina Coroiu

Claudiu T Albulescu

The globalization process has an important impact on the foreign direct investment flows. The FDI are increasingly important to developing countries, such as the Central and Eastern European countries. The EU accession has stimulated the investors’ confidence, and it has contributed to their economic development. According to the economic theory, the factors influencing the FDI are numerous and related to the country, sector and company’s characteristics. One classification groups these factors in three broad categories: economic policy of host country, economic performance and attractiveness of national economy. In this paper, we point out a new FDI determinant: financial stability ...

Constructing The Innocence Of The First Textual Encounter, Alex Mueller, Cheryl Nixon, Rajini Srikanth

Alex Mueller

Three faculty members from UMass Boston's English Department—a team responsible for the department’s M.A. course on the Teaching of Literature and for the training of novice teachers of literature—examine the complex process of reading texts that they teach as if they are encountering them as their students do, for the first time. Accepting the proposition that reading texts in the classroom places the student at the center of an experience that originates in the instructor, they sug- gest that teachers must be prepared to relinquish their “expert” attachment to the text by defamiliar- izing it ...

What's A Policy Maker Doing At A Research Conference? Mediating Stronger Partnerships Between Research, Policy And Practice In Schooling And Early Childhood Development, Elizabeth Hartnell-Young, Elvira Vacirca 2009 University of Melbourne

What's A Policy Maker Doing At A Research Conference? Mediating Stronger Partnerships Between Research, Policy And Practice In Schooling And Early Childhood Development, Elizabeth Hartnell-Young, Elvira Vacirca

Dr Elizabeth Hartnell-Young

This paper, written from the stance of central government policy makers, explores the sometimes tense relationships between researchers, practitioners and education policy makers in a context where evidence-based policy is espoused by governments. It is based on a belief that research in education affects, and is affected by, multiple stakeholders, and that if we are to strengthen the role of education research as a public good, making a difference to society, then we need a model and a practice that can bridge stakeholder interests. The current quest in school education policy making for ‘what works’ is influenced by economic imperatives ...
