A Sense of Place: Mindful practice outdoors by
Call Number: 371.384 DAV
Publication Date: 2019
Being outside and connecting with nature is key to young children's learning and wellbeing, especially in a busy, fast-changing and digitalised world. Outdoors, children can more easily connect to their bodies, and learn about themselves and others and how to be in the world. They use their senses to explore, understand and become mindful of the earth and the people around them. But how can Early Years practitioners best support young children as they engage with nature, while also passing on the values about the future of the planet? Annie Davy presents tried-and-tested strategies that support the wellbeing and learning journey of children through mindfulness, with a focus on learning outoors and connecting with the world.
Post-Sustainability and Environmental Education by
Call Number: 304.207 POS
Publication Date: 2017-03-24
"This book provides a critique of over two decades of sustained effort to infuse educational systems with education for sustainable development. Taking to heart the idea that deconstruction is a prelude to reconstruction, this critique leads to discussions about how education can be remade, and respond to the educational imperatives of our time, particularly as they relate to ecological crises and human-nature relationships. It will be of great interest to students and researchers of sociology, education, philosophy and environmental issues."-
Call Number: 304.201 ABR
Publication Date: 2018-05-01
"In Topoi/Graphein Christian Abrahamsson maps the paradoxical limit of the in-between to reveal that to be human is to know how to live with the difference between the known and the unknown. Using filmic case studies, including Code Inconnu, Lord of the Flies, and Apocalypse Now, and focusing on key concerns developed in the works of the philosophers Deleuze, Olsson, and Wittgenstein, Abrahamsson starts within the notion of fixed spatiality, in which human thought and action are anchored in the given of identity.

Race for Education by
Call Number: 379.260968 HUN
Publication Date: 2019-01-24
"This book adds to existing research exposing continued inequalities in South Africa's education facilities and exam results. However, it rethinks South Africa's political transition by revealing how the prestige of whiteness, or what it calls "white tone," became reformulated in the everyday workings of a marketised education system. It shows how "white" phenotypic traits retain value in society even if some better-off "black" people can now buy prestigious cultural dispositions"
Teacher in the cupboard: Self- reflective, solution-focused teaching and learning by
Call Number: 371.102 ASH
Publication Date: 2019
’Teacher in the Cupboard’ challenges us to reflect on what the problems in our contexts are – and on the excuses we make for not resolving them – and encourages us to think creatively to find workable and humane solutions. It is filled with calm and level-headed examples of problem-solving, from tackling difficult classes and reluctant learners to managing our frantic workloads. Lisa is unshakeably positive in her outlook, even when reflecting on teaching’s difficult moments – insisting that a solution can always be found within ourselves if we just stop, look and listen. She also offers ideas around why and how difficulties arise, and how we can find pre-emptive solutions that enable us to be more productive and our students better behaved and better learners.
