You have to start somewhere: Designing, tailoring and tinkering. A reflection on leading a change process

This story of leading change is written by the Principal and Deputy Principal of Thorrington School in Christchurch where the leadership focus has been to shift curriculum design and teaching practices to be more responsive to the needs of learners.  The article considers the shift in the practices of twenty teachers over a three-year time frame. The school does not have purpose built Modern Learning Spaces / Environments (referred to as flexible learning spaces in this article) so

Detecting Change in Longitudinal Social Networks

Changes in observed social networks may signal an underlying change within an organization, and may even predict significant events or behaviors. The breakdown of a team’s effectiveness, the emergence of informal leaders, or the preparation of an attack by a clandestine network may all be associated with changes in the patterns of interactions between group members. The ability to systematically, statistically, effectively and efficiently detect these changes has the potential to enable

These results have implications on climate change prediction and global warming in both countries, and also shows that recursive Bayesian dynamic model with time-varying parameters is suitable for statistical

A Study of the Dynamic Parameters Influence over the Behavior of the Two-Section Articulated Vehicle during the Lane Change Manoeuvre

The course stability and the steerability of the two-section wheeled vehicle at high velocities during the lane change manoeuvre are studied in this paper. Mechanic-mathematical model is developed, on which base simulation programmes are elaborated. Simulation studies of the course stability at different velocities depend on some constructive and exploitation factors are made by these models. Based on the simulation results an idea for an algorithm and a semi-active control system of the

What factors influence the effectiveness of financial incentives on long-term natural resource management practice change?

Financial incentives are used by natural resource management organisations to encourage landholders to adopt sustainable practices where the outcomes on a farm scale may be negative or marginal. There is a growing body of research aimed at understanding why landholders do or do not agree to participate in financial incentive programs, however research that considers when and how financial incentives work to bring about long-term behaviour change is relatively immature.

The Future of Australian Rural Communities: How Powerful are the Forces of Change?

This paper tests how far population change in 412 rural communities of south-eastern Australia is predetermined by five ‘drivers’: remoteness, amenity, town size, rural population density, and concentration/dispersal of the population. Testing their combined impact through multiple correlation analysis, it finds that over the ten-year period 1996-2006, the status of the five drivers measured in 1996 explains (statistically) some 53% of the variance in the actual population change in the

Nonetheless, the need to maintain urban green spaces is more important than ever.

COVARIATE SELECTION FOR SMALL AREA ESTIMATION IN REPEATED SAMPLE SURVEYS

If the implementation of small area estimation methods to multiple editions of a repeated sample survey is considered, then the question arises which covariates to use in the models. Applying standard model selection procedures independently to the different editions of the survey may identify different sets of covariates for each edition. If the small area predictions are sensitive to the different models, this is undesirable in official statistics since monitoring change over time of

Based on our review, we found that food-drug interactions may alter the expected impact of drug, or cause the development of a drug toxicity. Nutritional status of the patients may also be affected, particularly a change in body weight caused by a change appetite. Metabolism, absorption, and excretion of foods may also be altered, and nutritional

FLEXIBLE PH SENSOR WITH POLYANILINE LAYER BASED ON IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENT

A flexible sensor with conducting polyaniline layer for detecting pH value based on the impedance measurement is fabricated and demonstrated in this study. The pH sensor consists of an interdigital electrode array on a flexible printed circuit and a thin-film polyaniline as the sensing layer. As the conductivity of polyaniline depends on the redox state, the impedance change of the polyaniline after it has reacted with different pH value solutions works as the sensing mechanism. In order to

Geography in South Australia at the beginning of the 21st Century

Geography, initially an important subject in the curriculum of the three South Australian Universities, has sustained much change, with it no longer taught at the University of South Australia from 2004. Concurrently, changes at secondary school level lost popularity, dropping by 2004 to 12th position. This paper reviews the history of the geography discipline in tertiary institutions in Adelaide, South Australia and considers the factors that have influenced its evolution and popularity.

Feasibility Study on Estimating Visual Attention using Electrodermal Activity

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) refers to change in the electrical properties of skin during mental exertion caused by tension and agitation. In recent studies, it has been revealed that there is an overlap between the brain activation area where emotion occurs and the brain activation area responsible for attentiveness. Consequently, in this paper we test our hypothesis that, given these findings, visual attention can be estimated via EDA. The results of experiments conducted verify that EDA can

Of the 438 donors typed for V and Jsa, 168 (38.36%) were V+ and 71 (16.44%) were Js(a+). The incidence of V (Rh10) was higher than that reported in previous studies, but no change was seen in the incidence of Jsa (K6).
