  • Outdoor education in Aotearoa New Zealand: A new vision for the twenty first century

    Irwin, D.; Straker, J.; Hill, A. (2011)

    Book
    Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Te Wānanga Ōtautahi

    Outdoor education in a variety of guises has a rich history in Aotearoa New Zealand, dating back more than 100 years. Learning experiences in the outdoors have a strong and oft en much-loved place in our collective education memories, from environmental field trips in the mountain valleys of Aoraki/Mount Cook to school camps at Port Waikato; from primary school stream study and restoration projects to multiday alpine journeys for tertiary students. However, as we move into the second decade of the twenty-fi rst century, the world we live in is vastly diff erent from the one in which many of us developed those memories. What does that mean for education, and more specifi cally, what does that mean for educational experiences that take place in outdoor environments? This book attends to these questions from a forward looking position. It shares a vision of outdoor education which moves beyond the proud histories of twentieth century school camps, fi eld studies and outdoor pursuits to one which addresses the exigent and contemporary issues confronting educators and students alike. The twenty-first century seems to be characterised by great uncertainty and rapid change. Issues such as climate change, growing inequality between the haves and have-nots, and rising levels of consumption and waste are increasingly entering the fray of our everyday lived realities. So too are bigger (or indeed smaller), better, and faster technologies. Cultural norms are constantly being challenged, contested, and reshaped. How then does outdoor education wrestle with and speak to these and other issues?

  • Optimisation and modelling of spiking neural networks - Enhancing neural information processing systems through the power of evolution

    Schliebs, S (2011-08-04)

    Book
    Auckland University of Technology

    Motivated by the desire to better understand the truly remarkable information processing capabilities of the brain, numerous biologically plausible computational models have been explored in the recent decades. Already today, many applications employ neural networks to solve complex real world problems. Significant progress has been made in areas such as speech recognition, robotic controllers, associative memory and function approximation. This book develops an extension for a machine learning technique called the evolving spiking neural network (eSNN). It allows the automatic tuning of the neural and learning-related parameters of eSNN in order to promote its straightforward application to many different problem domains. The book proposes novel evolutionary algorithms capable of efficiently exploring multiple mixed-variable search spaces simultaneously. The enhanced eSNN is comprehensively investigated on benchmark problems and a real-world case study.

  • Asian Englishes: Changing Perspectives in a Globalised World

    Zhang, Lawrence (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    The world has become increasingly globalised and, with English at its vanguard, globalisation has provided many new opportunities as well as challenges for the English language teaching profession in recent years. Among these are the emergence of several new Englishes, particularly in the Asia-Pacific context, and the implications for learners and teachers as well as course material designers, curriculum developers, and policy makers in the region and beyond. The current status, roles, functions and manifestations of the English language in these diverse settings have thus assumed great academic significance and warranted much professional attention and interest. Therefore, Asian Englishes: Changing Perspectives in a Globalised World seeks to explore issues pertaining generally to the problems and possibilities concerning the teaching, learning and use of English in a globalised world. Edited by scholars in the field of global/world Englishes, this is a collection of articles that covers a wide range of research interests from linguistic features, cultural, ethical, political, and identity issues, to pedagogical implications and applications, all within a highly coherent overall framework. Part I deals with Varieties of Asian Englishes, and comprises five papers that focus on the distinctive linguistic features of different varieties of English including the English of Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and China. The four papers in Part II focus on issues relating to Language, Culture and Identity, both at the micro- and macro-levels. The next four papers in Part III, relating specifically to Description and Application, focus on the need to equip students in the effective use of English for meaningful communication in both everyday situations as well as in meeting the specific demands and rigours of academic and professional communication. The final three papers in Part IV reflect on the theme of Innovation and Pedagogy. This volume documents a sampling of the dynamic nature of Englishes in a variety of Asian contexts and domains of language use. The aim is to re-invigorate thinking on the spread and use of English in Asia from a range of perspectives.

  • Gender City

    Samuels, Lisa (2011-06-15)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Gender City is poetry in our skins, in the law, in our names (like Trudi and Terra), in places like the Barbie Doll Museum, in events like falling on the sidewalk, being in prison in a city with buildings made of skin, rupturing murder in language (pure meaning's urge), considering language as tattoo in a city with mouths that manifest like a disgorgement in your gender, in the city that has no center as the tattoo of poetry (the skin under your dress) has no center.
