The Minerals Resource Rent Tax: The Australian Labor Party And The Continuity Of Change, John Passant Jan 2014

The Minerals Resource Rent Tax: The Australian Labor Party And The Continuity Of Change, John Passant

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to look at the recent history of proposals to tax resource rents in Australia, from Australia's Future Tax System Report (the "Henry Tax Review") through to the proposed Resource Super Profits Tax ("RSPT") and then the Minerals Resource Rent Tax ("MRRT"). The process of change from Henry to the RSPT to the MRRT can best be understood in the context of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) as a capitalist workers' party. The author argues that it is this tension in the ALP, the shift in its internal balance further towards capital and ...

Resource Development And Teacher Training: A Model Of Interactive Whiteboard (Wb) Integration In Language Labs, Lidia Bilbatua, Laetitia Vedrenne

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Pedagogical research often focuses on learners’ experience of technologyenhanced learning environments. It is widely accepted that effective use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in learning requires the learner to be already fluent in them (Lai and Morrison 2013: 154). If this is the case, then practitioners also need to be competent, yet the digital literacy of today’s learners often appears greater than that of practitioners. This translates into a big gap between learners and practitioners in ability and confidence in the use of ICTs.

In this paper, we present the outcomes of a research project funded by the ...


Transforming Resource Sharing Services At An Australian Academic Library: The Case Of The University Of Wollongong, Rebecca Daly, Liz Baker, Lisa M. Mcintosh Jan 2014

Transforming Resource Sharing Services At An Australian Academic Library: The Case Of The University Of Wollongong, Rebecca Daly, Liz Baker, Lisa M. Mcintosh

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

In 2011 the University of Wollongong Library undertook a significant review of its Resource Sharing services. This was prompted by constraints in the systems supporting this service, changes to the Library's key suppliers, Infotrieve Australia and the British Library Document Supply Service, and the need to deliver effective library services within a defined physical and budgetary environment. As a result of the review, the existing Millennium Interlibrary Loan and Ariel software hosting the service were replaced by the Relais ILL system. The most cost-effective and relevant methods for supporting the research needs of the university were achieved through subscriptions ...

Novel Digital Food Photos Resource Enhances Knowledge Of Nutrition And Dietetics Students, Karen Walton, Anne Mcmahon, Chris Brewer, Joanna Baker, Janaye Fish, Fiona Manning, Sara Grafenauer, Meredith Kennedy, Yasmine Probst

Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences - Papers (Archive)

A robust knowledge of food composition, the Australian food supply and cooking methods is integral to dietetics practice. Students learn these concepts across a variety of subjects, however a new dietetics subject in 2009 and a faculty based learning and teaching grant provided a timely opportunity to develop innovative new digital resources for students to enhance their food composition knowledge. One-hundred and sixty high quality digital food photographs were developed and nutrient composition data were added, before making the resource accessible to students via their eLearning sites. The primary aim of this study was to assess the views and experiences ...


The Real Resource Curse And The Imperialism Of Development, Timothy Dimuzio Jan 2010

The Real Resource Curse And The Imperialism Of Development, Timothy Dimuzio

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

The idea that the scope of anthropology in the face of the new development economics be widened is a welcome one. In explaining what has been called ‘the resource curse’, Gisa Weszkalnys (in this issue) suggests that anthropologists must go beyond merely looking for the social details that might help economists account for why their theories often go awry in real social settings. In other words, the role of the anthropologist is not to provide social justifications for economic models gone wrong. Rather, Weszkalnys asks anthropologists concerned with studying communities with coveted and valuable world resources to approach their study ...


Australia And The Convention For The Regulation Of Antarctic Mineral Resource Activities (Cramra), Sam Blay, Ben M. Tsamenyi Jan 1990

Australia And The Convention For The Regulation Of Antarctic Mineral Resource Activities (Cramra), Sam Blay, Ben M. Tsamenyi

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Australia, a leading Antarctic state that played a key role in negotiating the Convention for the Regulation of Antarctic Mineral Resource Activities, in May 1989 announced its opposition to the Convention and adoption instead of a World Park or Wilderness Reserve concept for Antarctica. This article examines possible environmental and economic reasons for Australia's attitude, which is likely to have significant implications for the future of the Convention and for the Antarctic Treaty System as a whole. -Authors
