Emerging Strategies for Supporting Student Learning provides a straightforward and accessible guide to the latest learning and teaching practices appropriate for use with higher education students. It is both an exciting and challenging time to be working in higher education as the sector experiences rapid changes including: an increasingly diverse student population with changing expectations; changes in technology including the rise in the use of social media; increased emphasis on employability and internationalisation; development of new social learning spaces; as well as an ever-decreasing resource base. As a result of these changes, new approaches to supporting student learning are developing rapidly. In the past five years, developments in both the theory and practice of learning and teaching have created a complex landscape which it is sometimes difficult to navigate. Emerging Strategies for Supporting Student Learning provides practical guidance and brings together theory and practice in an accessible style. The book covers a wide range of tools and techniques (relevant to face-to-face, blended learning and online practices) which will suit students in different contexts from large groups of 500+ to very small classes of research students. This practical book makes extensive use of case studies, examples, checklists and tables and contains: - An analysis of the current higher education landscape, the changes that are occurring and the diverse nature of students populations - An exploration of new theories of digital literacy including case studies demonstrating how library and information workers have applied these models in practice - A demonstration of the many different ways in which academic library and information services are working in support of student employability - A theoretical overview of different approaches to teaching and learning including Kolb’s learning cycle, Laurillard’s conversational framework for university teaching, Entwistle’s teaching for understanding at university, Land and Meyer’s threshold concepts, and the Higher Education Academy’s work on flexible pedagogies - Practical guidance on designing, developing and evaluating courses and other learning and teaching events in different situations in including face-to-face, flipped classroom, blended learning, and online learning - An exploration of approaches to personal and professionals development including 90+ approaches to workplace learning; accredited courses; short courses, conferences and workshops; networking through professional organisations; and developing online networks. Emerging Strategies for Supporting Student Learning will be essential reading for different groups working in colleges and universities including library and information workers, staff developers, educational technologists, educational development project workers, educational change agents and students of library and information science who are planning their careers in higher education institutions.

The purpose of this practical guide is to facilitate college students’ academic success by fostering selfregulated learning skills or learning to learn through the use of Integrative Learning Technologies (ILT). It enables the college instructor, online instructor, instructional developer, or educator to envision, plan for, and implement customized instructional and curricular designs that foster learning to learn and motivate students to take ownership of their own learning. Specifically, this book demonstrates how college faculty who use Learning Management Systems (LMS) as well as emerging technologies such as Web 2.0 applications and social software can design learning tasks and course assignments that support and promote student: • goal setting • use of effective task strategies • selfmonitoring and selfevaluation • time management • help seeking • motivation and affect Given the emphasis on retention of freshmen as a measure of institutional effectiveness, the focus on student success, and the increasing use of ILT in higher education, this book fulfills a dire need in the literature on the integration of technology and selfregulated learning.

This book focuses on developing and updating prospective and practicing chemistry teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge. The 11 chapters of the book discuss the most essential theories from general and science education, and in the second part of each of the chapters apply the theory to examples from the chemistry classroom. Key sentences, tasks for self-assessment, and suggestions for further reading are also included. The book is focused on many different issues a teacher of chemistry is concerned with. The chapters provide contemporary discussions of the chemistry curriculum, objectives and assessment, motivation, learning difficulties, linguistic issues, practical work, student active pedagogies, ICT, informal learning, continuous professional development, and teaching chemistry in developing environments. This book, with contributions from many of the world’s top experts in chemistry education, is a major publication offering something that has not previously been available. Within this single volume, chemistry teachers, teacher educators, and prospective teachers will find information and advice relating to key issues in teaching (such as the curriculum, assessment and so forth), but contextualised in terms of the specifics of teaching and learning of chemistry, and drawing upon the extensive research in the field. Moreover, the book is written in a scholarly style with extensive citations to the literature, thus providing an excellent starting point for teachers and research students undertaking scholarly studies in chemistry education; whilst, at the same time, offering insight and practical advice to support the planning of effective chemistry teaching. This book should be considered essential reading for those preparing for chemistry teaching, and will be an important addition to the libraries of all concerned with chemical education. Dr Keith S. Taber (University of Cambridge; Editor: Chemistry Education Research and Practice) The highly regarded collection of authors in this book fills a critical void by providing an essential resource for teachers of chemistry to enhance pedagogical content knowledge for teaching modern chemistry. Through clever orchestration of examples and theory, and with carefully framed guiding questions, the book equips teachers to act on the relevance of essential chemistry knowledge to navigate such challenges as context, motivation to learn, thinking, activity, language, assessment, and maintaining professional expertise. If you are a secondary or post-secondary teacher of chemistry, this book will quickly become a favorite well-thumbed resource! Professor Hannah Sevian (University of Massachusetts Boston)

Garr Reynolds ist wieder da. Autor des über 150.000 Mal verkauften Bestsellers über Präsentationsde- sign und Vortragskunst. Er zeigt uns in dieser neuen Auflage seines Klassikers "Zen oder die Kunst der Präsentation", dass man sein Publikum mit klarer Darstellung und guten Geschichten am besten erreicht. Garr greift die gängige Vorstellung von "Folienpräsentationen" an und zeigt, wie wir anregende und erfolgreichere Präsentationen gestalten und vortragen können. Er inspiriert mit neuen Beispielen und zeigt Techniken, mit denen wir Lärm und Ablenkung des modernen Lebens ausblenden und die Zuhörerschaft fesseln können. Garr verbindet seine Argumente mit den Lehren des Zen und weist damit den Weg zu einfache- ren und effektiven Präsentationen, die vom Publikum angenommen, erinnert und - vor allem - beherzigt werden. "Presentation Zen änderte mein Leben und das Leben meiner Kunden. Die Philosophie, die Garr in seinem Buch so elegant erläutert, wird Ihr Publikum inspirieren. Denken Sie nicht einmal daran, eine Präsentation ohne dieses Buch zu halten!" (Carmine Gallo, Autor von "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs") "Garr hat hinsichtlich der Art, wie wir über die Macht von Präsentationen denken, Neuland betreten. Noch wichtiger: Er hat eine ganze Generation von Kommunikatoren gelehrt, wie sie ihre Aufgabe besser erledigen. Verpassen Sie dieses Buch nicht." (Seth Godin, legendärer Präsentator und Autor von "We Are All Weird") "Wenn Ihnen Qualität und Klarheit Ihrer Präsentationen wichtig sind - und das sollten sie - nehmen Sie dieses Buch, lesen Sie jede Seite und beherzigen Sie seine Lehren. Presentation Zen ist ein zeitgenössischer Klassiker." (Daniel H. Pink, Autor von "Drive" und "Unsere kreative Zukunft")

Die Wahrheit über die Jagd auf Osama bin Laden Die Welt kennt nur die Bilder aus dem Lagezentrum des Weißen Hauses: Präsident Barack Obama und sein Stab beobachten am Monitor den Zugriff der Navy Seals. Mit aufgerissenen Augen verfolgt Außenministerin Hillary Clinton das Geschehen. Erschrocken schlägt sie die Hand vor den Mund. Es ist der Moment, als Osama bin Laden, der Drahtzieher des globalen Terrors, von einer Kugel in den Kopf getroffen wird. Was genau der US-Präsident und seine Berater sahen, ist ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Einzig und allein die Männer, die den Auftrag ausführten, wissen, was in Pakistan wirklich geschah. Mark Owen ist einer von ihnen. Der authentische Bericht über die tatsächlichen Umstände des Todes von Osama bin Laden – die wahre Geschichte über die wohl spektakulärste Mission der Navy Seals.
