The first volume of this ground-breaking book critically examines how and why arts-based methods such as choir conducting workshops and dialogue improvisation can make a difference in improving professional practice. Taking a ‘human-centred’ approach, it delivers an insightful account of what these approaches do differently to achieve a new mode of learning – ‘sensuous learning’ – that cultivates professional judgment to serve the common good, simultaneously supporting personal and collective growth. The chapters present cutting edge examples of multiple ways arts-based methods underpin learning arenas for expanding leadership and improving professional practice. The reflexivity cultivated through these learning arenas has the unique potential to improve professional practice, not merely by enhancing competence but also by cultivating character and conscience, which is central in making judgments that serve the common good. These benefits are relevant for professional practitioners sharpening the skills and behaviours needed in organisations, including creativity, diversity, imagination, and improvisation.

Exploring Educational Research Literacy offers beginning classroom teachers a comprehensive introduction to the topic of educational research literacy—that is, the ability to read educational research articles in a systemic and critical way. Many beginning teacher education students are expected to be familiar with the latest research in their field, but are not necessarily researchers themselves. In fact, many new students have had little exposure to educational research. In this accessible text, Gary Shank and Launcelot Brown give students step-by-step guidance through the often baffling process of learning a new 'language' of research methods. Using clear and friendly language, and employing simple articles created to introduce students to important ideas in an engaging manner, Exploring Educational Research Literacy gives students the tools to shift from being passive consumers of research to active and critical readers capable of evaluating research and judging the usefulness of the findings for educational practice. Features include: CD-ROM including ten real research articles and eight "training" articles: Each lets students practice their research literacy skills and includes a list of questions to guide students in their reading" 'Practice Makes Perfect': end of the chapter reflection activities that prompt students to apply research skills described in each chapter Article Literacy Checklist: a guide to help students read research articles critically Glossary of key terms Clear and engaging style: Exploring Educational Research Literacy is written so that even students who are new to educational research can gain a clear understanding of and ability to apply the special skills needed to read research articles

Schooling Learning Teaching: Toward Narrative Pedagogy calls forth ways of thinking the issues of schooling, learning, and teaching. The task of this book is to plumb this triad as a phenomenological relationship that emerges as an “intra” rather than an “inter.” Do conventional pedagogies favor preparing nursing students for a healthcare system that no longer exists? Has competency-based nursing education reached its completion? Exhausted its possibilities? Converging conversations and Concernful Practices of Schooling Learning Teaching show themselves as the telling of narratives. Narrative Pedagogy gathers all pedagogies?past, extant, and future?into converging conversations by rethinking schooling, learning, and teaching as an intra-related, co-occurring invisible phenomenon. Relating as telling and listening reveals the richness of situated involvements as they meaningfully disclose and beckon: they simply ask to be listened to. NURSING EDUCATION “This book is a treasure-trove that calls out a voyage of discovery. Narrative Pedagogy is the realization of 20 years of hermeneutic phenomenological research by Nancy Diekelmann. In her scholarship she has attended to the listenings of students, teachers, and clinicians in nursing educational settings in order to move beyond the constrictions inherent in the traditions of schooling?those that pursue the production of students as trained outputs by teachers and clinicians, bound to particular sets of strategies. Narrative Pedagogy is the first nursing pedagogy from nursing research for nursing education. Both our eyes and our ears will be opened to a richer way of thinking.” -Pamela M. Ironside, PhD, R.N. F.A.A.N., Associate Professor, Director for Research in Nursing Education, University of Indiana School of Nursing

A comprehensive, eye-opening exploration of what dreams are, where they come from, what they mean, and why we have them. Questions on the origins and meaning of dreams are as old as humankind, and as confounding and exciting today as when nineteenth-century scientists first attempted to unravel them. Why do we dream? Do dreams hold psychological meaning or are they merely the reflection of random brain activity? What purpose do dreams serve? When Brains Dream addresses these core questions about dreams while illuminating the most up-to-date science in the field. Written by two world-renowned sleep and dream researchers, it debunks common myths?that we only dream in REM sleep, for example—while acknowledging the mysteries that persist around both the science and experience of dreaming. Antonio Zadra and Robert Stickgold bring together state-of-the-art neuroscientific ideas and findings to propose a new and innovative model of dream function called NEXTUP—Network Exploration to Understand Possibilities. By detailing this model’s workings, they help readers understand key features of several types of dreams, from prophetic dreams to nightmares and lucid dreams. When Brains Dream reveals recent discoveries about the sleeping brain and the many ways in which dreams are psychologically, and neurologically, meaningful experiences; explores a host of dream-related disorders; and explains how dreams can facilitate creativity and be a source of personal insight. Making an eloquent and engaging case for why the human brain needs to dream, When Brains Dream offers compelling answers to age-old questions about the mysteries of sleep.
