    Waikato Geological Society (1967)

    Journal article
    University of Waikato

    The production of yet another new journal requires some explanation although there need be no apology. The Earth Science Journal is intended to answer the need, caused by increasing specialisation by other journals, for a place in which to publish articles and research reports which are of wide interest to earth scientists, and which cross the boundaries of the traditional disciplines. To this end contributions of reports on research, essays, notes and letters will be welcomed from geologists, geomorphologists, pedologists, climatologists, oceanographers, ecologists and physical geographers.

    Locke, Terry (2002)

    Journal article
    University of Waikato

    The scrutiny of any educational system inevitably raises issues about constructions of worthwhile knowledge (content) and how the learning of knowledge so-deemed should be managed (pedagogy). Issues of national curriculum reform are discussed by a number of writers in this issue. In providing an overview of the Australian situation, Wayne Sawyer raises issues related to the uneasy tension between increasingly critical English curriculum formulations and narrowly defined literacy testing regimes. Writing of the situation in England, Richard Andrews details ways in which curricular reform still operates within a conservative, target-setting and assessment driven model. Terry Locke makes similar points about the New Zealand situation, when he discusses ways in which assessment reforms, especially when related to high-stakes qualifications reforms, construct their own de facto curriculums. The article on the South African situation, by Hilary Janks and Jeanne Prinsloo, is a reminder of ways in which issues of power (and disempowerment) are implicated in curricular constructions.

    We are excited to present the first papers of the new Journal of Home Language Research. We hope this journal will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of original research from all parts of the world, in all areas related to the study of home languages. Our focus on the home is due to the importance of family and community for the success of intergenerational transmission of minority languages. We define home languages as any languages that are not the majority language(s) of the context and are spoken in the family and/or community. This relates to heritage, migrant and indigenous language transmission, each with their distinctive challenges.

It is often characterised by work which deliberately engages in spaces or with groups of people where mainstream theatre still fears to tread. The boundaries between actors and spectators are puposefully blurred as all participants are involved as active theatre makers. Frequently, applied theatre is constructed as a response to social or political challenges and is seen as a process where difference and change can be wrought through its making. ...
