This book stems from more than 25 years of systematic research into the experience of learning undertaken by a research team trying to account for the obvious differences between more or less successful instances of learning in educational institutions. The book offers an answer in terms of the discovery of critical differences in the structure of the learner's awareness and critical differences in the meaning of the learner's world. The authors offer a detailed account of the empirical findings that give rise to theoretical insights, and discuss the particular form of qualitative research that has been employed and developed. The form of learning that is the object of study is considered to be the most fundamental form -- namely a change in the learner's way of seeing, experiencing, handling, and understanding aspects of the world. The need for rigorous analysis of learning of specific subject matter, the individual construction of knowledge, and its social and cultural embeddedness -- the defining features of rival approaches into research on learning -- are reconciled from the approach adopted here into an intertwined and whole experience of learning. The learner's experience is always one of learning something, in some way, and in some context; by holding the learner's experience of learning as the focus of study throughout -- and not studying the learning of the content and the acts and the context as separate and distinct focuses -- the content, the act, and the context remain united as constituents of the learner's experience. By empirically revealing critical differences in the ways of experiencing these aspects of learning, and by developing a theoretical framework for the dynamics through which change comes about in the learner's awareness, this book gradually leads the reader to a powerful new view of learning. Equipped with the analytical tools and conceptual apparatus to be found in this book, the reader will be empowered to learn and to assist others to learn by creating environments conducive to the most fundamental form of learning: experiencing aspects of the world in new ways.

Language Awareness and Learning to Read

Language Awareness and Learning to Read

This is reflected in the varying terminology used by these independent investigators "linguistic awareness," "metacognition," "metalinguistic ability," "task aware ness," "lexical awareness," and so on.

During the 1970s there was a rapid increase in interest in metacognition and metalinguistics. The impetus came from linguistics, psychology, and psycho linguistics. But with rather unusual rapidity the work from these scientific dis ciplines was taken over in education. This new direction in these various areas of academic study was taken simultaneously by several different investigators. Although they had varying emphases, their work sometimes appears to be over lapping; despite this, it has been rather difficult to find a consensus. This is reflected in the varying terminology used by these independent investigators "linguistic awareness," "metacognition," "metalinguistic ability," "task aware ness," "lexical awareness," and so on. For educators these developments presented a glittering array of new ideas that promised to throw light on children's thinking processes in learning how to read. Many reading researchers and graduate students have perceived this as a new frontier for the development of theory and research. However, the variety of independent theoretical approaches and their accompanying terminologies has been somewhat confusing.

Cybersecurity Education for Awareness and Compliance

Cybersecurity Education for Awareness and Compliance

This book is ideally designed for IT consultants and specialist staff including chief information security officers, managers, trainers, and organizations.

Understanding cybersecurity principles and practices is vital to all users of IT systems and services, and is particularly relevant in an organizational setting where the lack of security awareness and compliance amongst staff is the root cause of many incidents and breaches. If these are to be addressed, there needs to be adequate support and provision for related training and education in order to ensure that staff know what is expected of them and have the necessary skills to follow through. Cybersecurity Education for Awareness and Compliance explores frameworks and models for teaching cybersecurity literacy in order to deliver effective training and compliance to organizational staff so that they have a clear understanding of what security education is, the elements required to achieve it, and the means by which to link it to the wider goal of good security behavior. Split across four thematic sections (considering the needs of users, organizations, academia, and the profession, respectively), the chapters will collectively identify and address the multiple perspectives from which action is required. This book is ideally designed for IT consultants and specialist staff including chief information security officers, managers, trainers, and organizations.

In recent years the rising interest in e-learning has expanded and it has shifted its focus towards a new beginning with blended learning programmes which makes learning more accessible, engaging, relevant, flexible, reducing amount of time and exploiting ICT and training facilities. Blended learning increases the options for greater quality and quantity of human interaction in a learning environment. A community of learners can interact at anytime and anywhere because of the benefits that computer-mediated educational tools provide. The present study examined the awareness and availability of blended learning in LIS education of selected universities of North East India. From the study, it is clear that use of Blended Learning tools by LIS Teachers and students in LIS departments in universities of North East India is sluggish and getting impetus slowly. Perfectly planned Blended Learning in universities would gain better reputation in terms of quality education. The book provides a unique approach for LIS academicians to mix both traditional face to face and online learning for the fulfilment of ultimate goal of revamping LIS education in the ICT age. It seems that the use of Blended learning has a special role to play in the modernization of LIS education which can help to preserve and improve its identity and can educate the future librarians who can prove their benefit to the society by being in step with changes and advances in technology. The book has been divided into six chapters and the observations.emphasize the need to offer more training opportunities for LIS Teachers and students, to demonstrate, how Blended Learning and its tools can be applied in their works in academic LIS departments of North East India.

As a teacher of meditation, Andrew Weiss found that students responded best when he broke down the process of mindfulness into discrete and progressive steps. Knowing that most people had little time to devote to meditation, he also made it his priority to teach the direct application of mindfulness to daily life. Through the years, he outlined his simple steps in a series of handouts that form the basis of this book. Intended for laypeople practicing in their work and family lives without the luxury of long meditation retreats, Beginning Mindfulness is deeply rooted in Buddhist practice but remains unbound by any particular Buddhist tradition. Combining teachings from Korean Zen Master Srung Sanh, Vietnamese Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and insight, or vipassana, meditation, Weiss skillfully blends these traditions with Hindu yogic methods to create a meditation manual that is both practical and inspiring.

This collection argues that being aware of and reflecting on language form and language use is a powerful tool, not only in language learning, but also in wider society. It adopts an interdisciplinary stance: one chapter argues the need for Language Awareness in business contexts, while another examines the role of critical cultural awareness and Language Awareness in education as ‘bildung’. Others report on research studies in language classrooms and in teacher education. Language Awareness is interrogated from a range of perspectives such as peer interaction, teaching young learners, learner strategies and strategies for writing, online reading, and oral fluency training. The scope is global, including contributions from Canada, Germany, Iran, Japan, Spain, and the UK, and covers bilingual as well as multilingual contexts. The book will be of interest to language teachers, language teacher educators, other language professionals, and generally to the language aware. This book was originally published as a special issue of Language Awareness.
