The artist/educators in this book invite you to come with them on a journey of discovery into the meaning of teaching for aesthetic experience. With learning as their art, they create educational encounters with passion and feeling, and leave their students with vivid impressions, growth, and change. Each author engages in aesthetic experience from an individual perspective - as poet, dancer, visual artist, or musician - and each of them engages as an educator who brings art into his or her classroom, no matter what the subject. Inspired by the words of philosopher Maxine Greene, the contributors transform the theoretical into the practical, urging students to look to the arts and nature for simple beauty, and awaken their minds to new possibilities of creative learning.

"The art of learning to love ourselves involves, first, discovering how, as children, we learn to dislike ourselves; then through diligent effort we can learn to love ourselves properly," says Dr. Osborne in introducing the subject of this book. "When we shall achieve that, our relationships will improve. Liking ourselves better, we discover a new and wonderful self-acceptance and become capable of giving and receiving love." The Art of Learning to Love Yourself focuses on the critical area of personal hurts -- specifically those inflicted in early childhood -- and how to build one's self esteem. "All of us, even in the most enlightened and loving environment, were damaged to some extent; for as there are no perfect parents, there is no perfect environment, and thus, there are no perfect children grown into adults. We dislike ourselves in direct proportion to that amount of rejection and criticism we experienced in childhood. We like and accept ourselves to the degree that our parents loved and accepted us." This book offers positive guidelines for building a better self-image and achieving a greater degree of self-love and self-approval. - Back cover.

John and Sumita Kaufhold (shown at Oxford University) have conducted numerous national and international seminars on educational improvement.
The present book is a tool for the teaching of the liberal arts in high school, or in the freshman year of college for those students whose high school studies were inadequate. It is intended to be at once a handbook and a textbook. As a handbook it should be used by the student throughout his four years in high school in every course. Every teacher in the school should insist that in each subject of the curriculum the processes of definition, statement, and argumentation outlined here should be exactly practiced in the student's reading recitation, discussion, and examination for that subject. In this way the transfer of training can be made explicit and effective. On the other hand this work is also a textbook to assist in the learning of these logical processes. The most appropriate place for its use is in the customary English courses. Here it will not replace the customary material but it will serve as a guide for teacher and student in using material to develop the liberal arts.

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. As you read this summary, you will learn the secrets to achieving excellence in a wide variety of disciplines. You will also learn : the great philosophical and psychological lessons that contribute to performance; the role of flexibility, creativity and the constant search for progress; the impact of managing emotions on the ability to succeed; techniques for achieving optimal concentration and coping with pressure and the unexpected. How is excellence achieved? It depends on the discipline, one might think. An athlete, a musician, a mathematician, an entrepreneur seem to operate in totally different spheres. However, their ability to constantly improve goes far beyond technical specificities. It relies in particular on psychological and philosophical springs. This is what Josh Waitzkin, chess and martial arts champion, has learned along the way. His passion for learning, his primary motivation, has never ceased to guide him. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!

'A statistical national treasure' Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2 'Required reading for all politicians, journalists, medics and anyone who tries to influence people (or is influenced) by statistics. A tour de force' Popular Science Do busier hospitals have higher survival rates? How many trees are there on the planet? Why do old men have big ears? David Spiegelhalter reveals the answers to these and many other questions - questions that can only be addressed using statistical science. Statistics has played a leading role in our scientific understanding of the world for centuries, yet we are all familiar with the way statistical claims can be sensationalised, particularly in the media. In the age of big data, as data science becomes established as a discipline, a basic grasp of statistical literacy is more important than ever. In The Art of Statistics, David Spiegelhalter guides the reader through the essential principles we need in order to derive knowledge from data. Drawing on real world problems to introduce conceptual issues, he shows us how statistics can help us determine the luckiest passenger on the Titanic, whether serial killer Harold Shipman could have been caught earlier, and if screening for ovarian cancer is beneficial. 'Shines a light on how we can use the ever-growing deluge of data to improve our understanding of the world' Nature
We live in an era defined by a wealth of open and readily available information, and the accelerated evolution of social, mobile and creative technologies. The provision of knowledge, once a primary role of educators, is now devolved to an immense web of free and readily accessible sources. Consequently, educators need to redefine their role not just “from sage on the stage to guide on the side” but, as more and more voices insist, as “designers for learning”. The call for such a repositioning of educators is heard from leaders in the field of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) and resonates well with the growing culture of design-based research in Education. However, it is still struggling to find a foothold in educational practice. We contend that the root causes of this discrepancy are the lack of articulation of design practices and methods, along with a shortage of tools and representations to support such practices, a lack of a culture of teacher-as-designer among practitioners, and insufficient theoretical development. The Art and Science of Learning Design (ASLD) explores the frameworks, methods, and tools available for teachers, technologists and researchers interested in designing for learning Learning Design theories arising from findings of research are explored, drawing upon research and practitioner experiences. It then surveys current trends in the practices, methods, and methodologies of Learning Design. Highlighting the translation of theory into practice, this book showcases some of the latest tools that support the learning design process itself.
