The renaissance of renewable energy by Gian Andrea Pagnoni( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides detailed yet easily understandable information about sustainable energy alternatives in the context of growing public concern about climate change, the impending fuel crisis and environmental degradation. It deals with the history of energy use and the factors that have led to the current interest in energy alternatives and assesses the chance of renewable energy replacing fossil fuels in the future. The authors manage to make a highly complex and often intimidating subject not only accessible but also engaging and entertaining. This book unpacks but never simplifies the science of energy, leavening the more technical passages with anecdotes, metaphors, examples and imagery. By also dealing with the history, politics and economics of energy use, it offers both scientific and non-scientific readers a deeper understanding of the most important issue of our age"
Don't tell : Toowoomba Prep : the case which broke the silence on child sex abuse in Australia by Stephen Roche( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Told through the eyes of a lawyer, Stephen Roche, this is a compelling account of the most important sexual abuse civil trial in Australian history. It begins when a young girl's life is torn apart while attending a prestigious Anglican preparatory school, suffering repeated sexual abuse at the hands of her boarding master. After a complaint by a fellow classmate, the man is charged. On the day he is to appear in court, he commits suicide. For the next eleven years the school and Church deny the abuse ever occurred and it seems as if Lyndal's life will remain in ruins - her cries for help forever falling on deaf ears. It is not until she is twenty-one that her story is finally told in court, exposing the dark face of the Church and a shocking history of institutionalised denial and neglect. Lyndal's story evokes a feeling of anger, outrage and contempt for the powers that be and the landmark legal decision brings the highest office in the country to its knees and forever changes Australian attitudes towards abuse."--Cover description

The role of higher education in promoting lifelong learning( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Overall, this volume constitutes a searching and wide-ranging exploration of how to expand and transform the role of universities in promoting lifelong learning. The main conclusions that can be drawn are threefold. Firstly, increased access to universities is not enough; the higher education system should ensure retention and progression of all learners, and of adult learners in particular. Especially in communities with an ageing population, universities need to facilitate learning for adults and senior citizens with support from the public and private sectors. Secondly, teaching and learning at universities can be transformed by linking learning to the wider issues of life, by recognising shared responsibilities, by creating innovative curricula and by capitalising on the diverse experiences of learners. Innovation in higher education can be crucial in terms of changing attitudes and values and helping to cultivate the necessary capacities for lifelong learning. Thirdly, the reform of higher education goes beyond mere pedagogy and didactics; it is a social process which links teaching and learning to students' personal and individual life patterns, their social and cultural context, and their chosen discipline. Given rapid changes in labour markets and societies, universities are expected to become more responsive to the work and life situation of adult learners, helping them not only acquire skills and knowledge, but also maintain and improve their position in society and ultimately enhance their quality of life. With this book, we hope to promote a common conceptual understanding of lifelong learning among university stakeholders and advocate for the integration of the lifelong learning perspective in institutional policy and practices."--Introduction
