Resolving Classroom Management and School Leadership Issues in ELT CAMBRIDGE SCHOLARS PUBLISHING
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book builds on work commenced by the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in the United Arab Emirates which nurtured a research culture and encouraged young professionals to evaluate practices in the workplace of teaching, the classroom. The current volume takes this work further and features the work of mature and experienced teachers who use action research to examine problems and practices in a variety of situations through the prism of leadership and management.The book features two introductory chapters. The first highlights the importance of research for the academy, and in particular for the academies of the United Arab Emirates. The significance of research and publication for the development of quality in education is discussed. Similarly, the twin concerns of learning through investigation and the sharing of that learning through publication are emphasized. Chapter Two backgrounds action research and identifies the small but growing body of work in this field in the United Arab Emirates. The particular relevance of action research to leadership and management in English language teaching is discussed, especially the learning capacity that this method of enquiry encompasses.Chapters Three to Ten feature the work of the local researchers. These chapters cover a variety of concerns which can be roughly grouped into management of classroom and teaching issues and broader educational leadership matters. Classroom management issues include making group work more effective, improving students' out-of-class learning, improving students' personal responsibility and attendance patterns, stimulating oral participation in class by students and improving student interactivity. The broad leadership matters explore issues of time management, understanding students and developing effective staff meetings.The book concludes with a short chapter of reflection by the eight researcher authors written twelve months after the original action research investigations. This section marks the book as special as retrospective evaluation is rare in education. The chapter shows that the professional development, the engagement and enrichment that results from action research are empowering qualities.
Excel 2010 for Health Services Management Statistics, 1 Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This is the first book to show the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach health services management statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical health services management problems. If understanding statistics isn t your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you.§Excel, a widely available computer program for students and managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in health services management courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2010 for Health Services Management Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching students and managers how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work.§Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand health services management problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an Appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows readers to test what they have learned.§
