The combination of science and innovation will be the cornerstone of Europe's future success, both in terms of economic growth and the promotion of social quality for all citizens, and that equation lies at the heart of this Road Map.Availability: (1)

Against recognition /

by McNay, Lois.

Publisher: Cambridge ; Malden, MA Polity 2008Description: vii, 232 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. Contents: Introduction: against recognition -- 1. Recognition and misrecognition in the psyche -- 2. The politics of recognition -- 3. Narrative and recognition -- 4. Recognition and redistribution -- 5. Beyond recognition: identity and agency. Missing 15 March 2012Summary: "In this original book, Lois McNay argues that the insights of the recognition theorists are undercut by their reliance on an inadequate account of power. Using Bourdieu's relational sociology, McNay develops an alternative account of individual agency that connects identity to structure. By focusing on issues of gender identity and agency, she opens up new pathways to move beyond the oppositions between material and cultural feminisms."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research

by National Health and Medical Research Council (Australia) | Australian Research Council | Universities Australia.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Health and Medical Research Council 2018Description: [10 p.].Other title: Australian Code for Responsible Conduct of Research.Online Access: Electronic copy | NHMRC Website Summary: The Australian and international community expects research to be conducted responsibly, ethically and with integrity. The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code) articulates the broad principles that characterise an honest, ethical and conscientious research culture. It establishes a framework for responsible research conduct that provides a foundation for high-quality research, credibility and community trust in the research endeavour. It outlines the expectations for the conduct of research in Australia or research conducted under the auspices of Australian institutions. The primary responsibility for ensuring the integrity of research lies with individual researchers and institutions. The Code sets out principles and responsibilities that both researchers and institutions are expected to follow when conducting research. Critical to this endeavour are the moral leadership and espoused values of the institution and the shared values and expectations of honesty and integrity that characterise an institution’s leadership and culture. The previous version of the Code has served as an important point of reference to researchers and administrators. In addition, its widespread adoption has provided the Australian community, and those responsible for funding research, with greater confidence in the integrity of research. This updated version of the Code has the same goal, but is presented in a simpler way that more clearly articulates the high-level principles, responsibilities and expectations that apply to all research across all disciplines.

Challenges for Australian education : results from PISA 2009 /

by Thomson, Sue | Australian Council for Educational Research | De Bortoli, Lisa | Nicholas, Marina | Hillman, Kylie | Buckley, Sarah.

Publisher: Camberwell, Vic. Australian Council for Educational Research 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The reading literacy of Australian 15-year-old students has fallen sharply over the past decade, results from the 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) reveal. The Australian national report shows Australia?s results have also slipped in mathematics but held ground in science. ; PISA measures how well 15-year-olds from across the globe are prepared to use their knowledge and skills in reading, mathematics and science to meet real-life challenges near the end of compulsory schooling. Sixty-five OECD and partner countries took part in PISA 2009, including a nationally representative sample of around 14,000 Australian students from 353 schools. Australia has now participated in four cycles of PISA since its inception in 2000. ; Australian students are still performing well above the OECD average but their results in reading literacy and mathematical literacy have declined significantly over recent years. Australian students scored an average of 515 points on the 2009 reading assessments, compared to the OECD average of 493 points. Australia?s overall performance declined by 13 score points from 2000 to 2009. The decline is primarily among higher achieving students and is more evident in some states than others. ; In mathematics Australian students achieved an average score of 514 points, significantly higher than the OECD average of 496. The result was similar to that achieved in 2006 but down on the 2003 result. The performance of Australian students in scientific literacy remained unchanged from PISA 2006 to PISA 2009 with an average score of 527 points. ; Very significant gaps in achievement remain between Australian students by gender, Indigenous status, location and wealth. In some cases these are equivalent to several years of schooling.Availability: (1)
