Study advisors enjoy explaining to students what efficient and effective academic studying is. We point out which factors promote or impede efficiency. We also analyse which factors apply to each individual. That ultimately makes every talk unique, just like the analysis and any resulting action plan. Study advisors do not have ready-made solutions. Nor do we have snappy tricks or secrets that unlock the way to stimulate a memory to work overtime. But luckily, there are many techniques that you can learn. They help you to study efficiently, effectively and pleasurably. And everyone can use them. This handbook can be read from cover to cover, as you would with any book. Or you can open it randomly or pick out certain chapters that interest you. If your question is not answered in this publication, or you would like to talk about your issue, then you are welcome to approach a study advisor at your institute. Changing a personal study approach does not have to be a punishment. In contrast, it can be very inspiring and motivate you to bring your dreams and goals closer. New insights can form the start of a new path, full of adventure. And let us not forget: if studying goes well, there will be more time left for the other pleasures in life. So enjoy!

The economic crisis was not just caused by a failure of regulation or economic policy; it was a story of the failure of management in a fundamental sense—a deeply flawed approach to management that encouraged bankers to pursue opportunities without regard for their long-term consequences, and to put their own interests ahead of those of their employers and their shareholders. The revised edition of this best-selling book shows convincingly that many of today’s major economic problems in the west can be traced to a failure of management. In this updated edition the author draws our attention to new examples of failed management, from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, and the disaster at BP, to the ongoing problems in financial services companies such as UBS and RBS. Throughout the book the references and statistics have been updated, to make this a current, highly relevant analysis of the problems besetting modern business and how managers need to tackle them.

The pressing need for a smarter and greener grid is obvious, but how this goal should be achieved is much less clear. This book clearly defines the environmental promise of the smart grid and describes the policies necessary for fully achieving the environmental benefits of the digital energy revolution. • Deciphers the muddled "information" from industry leaders and policymakers about 21st-century energy technology, enabling readers to understand how a smart grid can be a cost-effective tool to benefit the climate • Provides detailed information from case studies of six early smart grid leaders to showcase the strengths and weaknesses of these programs • Identifies the legal and regulatory challenges that could prevent the successful implementation of a smart electric grid, making it clear that the issues are not purely technological • Serves ideally as a primary text for courses on smart grid technology and policy as well as a resource for graduate-level research for energy policy or climate change policy courses

Want to learn some important lessons about business and life? Why not go straight to the source. Get Smarter is billionaire Schulich's brilliantly idiosyncratic and informative attempt to impart lessons learned in a lifetime to today's youth by someone who has achieved success in both his personal and professional life. In short, stand-alone chapters he covers such universal issues as: how to make a decision; manage all types of relationships; choose a career; deal with adversity; key business issues; investing lessons. Advice that will last a lifetime ... from someone who knows. "Schulich has a business school named after him. But when it comes to giving career advice, the former stock analyst who struck it rich ... is anything but academic. In Get Smarter ... he ladles out homespun wisdom in ... crisply written, anecdote-laden chapters aimed at 20- to 40-years olds, but golden at any age. He states his hope that each reader who invests time and money in the book will leave with 20 to 30 ideas---some that can help transform or shape their lives. In fact, he delivers."---The Globe and Mail "Here's a suggestion for those football fans aged under 30 who spend Sunday afternoons watching a game that features five minutes of action and takes three-plus hours to play: Drag yourself away from the box for one that has been written by Seymour Schulich. The book is full of pearls of wisdom, advice, stories and thoughts across a variety of themes."---The National Post

Kindergarten has changed. Many believe that it no longer reflects a nurturing environment but, instead, has become a race for children to learn skills so they are ready for the academic achievement tests that they will take continuously throughout their time in school. Resisting the Kinder-Race examines how the race came about, why it must change, and how all stakeholders in the early childhood and elementary school communities must take part in the reform process. The author draws on his own research to consider how the Kinder-Race might be reimagined through more democratic principles of schooling. Brown offers both practical and political strategies that can alter the day-to-day practices of the kindergarten classroom and the policies that currently define PreK–12 education in the United States. This resource will help readers see kindergarten as an educational environment that expands the learning of every child. Book Features: Provides an in-depth glimpse into a typical day in the Kinder-Race.Examines how kindergarten devolved from a garden that nurtures children into a race that dashes them from skill to skill.Brings together what are often siloed conversations among stakeholder groups.Highlights how kindergarten is now primarily defined through an economic lens and how this framing of learning, earning, and consuming might be rethought. Employs varied conceptual frameworks to investigate how stakeholders across different levels of public education make sense of the changed kindergarten.Illuminates the complexity of what is occurring in today’s kindergarten and puts forward practical and achievable ideas for change.
