Designing      Designing the Classroom Curriculum   By David Lynch, Richard Smith and Mike Howarth

This book is about designing the effective classroom curriculum. The authors argue that an effective classroom curriculum should be the goal of every teacher in every classroom around the world: effective that is for every student, not just those who find school easy! But how does one go about designing a classroom curriculum that is effective? What are the essential ingredients and how should these ingredients be organised for teaching effect? What role does Technology play in such classroom plans? In this book Lynch, Smith and Howarth provide an insight into these questions by providing a text that focuses on classroom teaching diagnostic and design strategies. Their intent in writing such a book is to enable the classroom teacher to develop, teach and assess a classroom curriculum where learning success for all students is the central goal.This text is compulsive reading for the teacher who wants to make a difference in their classrooms.

Book 333    Inside the Designer: Understanding imagining in spatial design          By Marisha McAuliffe

Design is fundamental to our modern world. All human achievements, great and small, owe their being, in no small measure, to the concept of design. Whether it is in social and technological innovations, great human endeavours, building and construction projects or simply the environ and desire of the individual, design has been there. But a question remains: what goes on inside the designer’s head? For many decades now researchers, philosophers and academics have pondered this question. In this book Dr. Marisha McAuliffe focuses on the notions of imagining and design to interrogate such a question. In this book McAuliffe’s outlines her seminal work, as a design practitioner and academic over many years, to expand our understanding of imagining in the spatial design disciplines of architecture and interior design. This book is compulsive reading for the design professional, the student of design and those who have pondered, what goes on inside the designer’s head? Read More

Pofl       The Perception of Light     by Marisha McAuliffe

Light is essential to life and vision; without light, nothing exists. It plays a pivotal role in the world of architectural design and is used to generate all manner of perceptions that enhance the designed environment experience. But what are the fundamental elements that designers rely upon to generate light enhanced experiences? How are people’s perceptions influenced by designed light schemas? In this book Dr. Marisha McAuliffe highlights the relationship that exists between light source and surface and how both create quality of effect in the built environment. Concepts relating to architectural lighting design history, theories, research, and generation of lighting design schemes to create optimal experiences in architecture, interior architecture and design are all explored in detail. This book is essential reading for both the student and the professional working in architectural lighting, particularly in terms of qualitative perception oriented lighting design. Read More

 

product thumbnail 1      Through the Colour Lens    BY Marisha McAuliffe

Colour is used to adorn and decorate and many have tried to find an organisational system that could concretely states how colour is to be used correctly.In this book Marisha McAuliffe examines the concept of colour and its uses for those who design professionally or those who simply want to appreciate the complexities of colour. It examines light and contrast, and explains the pitfalls that are to be avoided in colour design. The book explores different concepts relating to, and including, colour history, systems and theories, requirements for a colour-based design project, research, and generation of colour schemes so as to create optimal experiences for colour in architecture, interior architecture and design. To fully understand colour, the book ventures into its scientific and ‘non-scientific’ elements compiling key points about its many characteristics. Taken together, this book is a compressive guide for those who seek to work with colour and to tap its enormous potentials for design effect. Read More

Lynch          Creating the Outstanding School     By David Lynch, Jake Madden and Tina Doe

From Australia’s leading teaching and teacher education researchers comes a book about creating the outstanding school. Lynch, Madden and Doe provide an easy to read text that is all about ensuring every student gets a quality education. Each chapter explains, in easy to read terms, a set of ideas and research-based strategies that schools and their teachers can employ to reform their school. The book identifies for the reader and then explains the key research-based elements that lie at the heart of creating the outstanding school. The book features the Collaborative Teacher Learning Model and the elements of ‘teaching,’ ‘leadership’, ‘coaching’, ‘mentoring’, ‘feedback’, ‘data driven decision-making’, ‘high impact instruction’ and the idea of ‘teachers as researchers’ as the embodiment of a school-based strategy for creating the outstanding school.

Baofu            The Future of Post -Human Meta- Data .     By Peter Baofu 

Is meta-data (to give data a structure and a process) really so useful? This book offers an alternative (better) way to understand the future of meta-data in regard to the dialectic relationship between structure and process—while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). More specifically, this book offers a new theory (that is, the circumstantial theory of meta-data) to go beyond the existing approaches in a novel way, and is organized in four chapters. This seminal project here will fundamentally change the way that we think about structure and process (especially, though not solely, in the context of meta-data), together with other debates as will be discussed in the rest of the book, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its 'post human' fate. Read More


Francis    Advancing Social Work in Mental Health Through Strengths-based Practice.   By Francis et al. 

This book is about ‘strengths-based practice’ in social work. Strengths based practice refers to the identification of ‘strengths’ within an individual, family, or community, which are then employed to aid in promoting self-fulfilment and healing in a client. Strengths-based practice is a deliberate shift away from language and practices based on a client’s deficits or pathology--- a widespread approach that has dominated many fields within social science for some time--- to one that focuses on the client’s strengths.
