$29.95 Ex Tax:$28.25

Teachers’ work is influenced by teachers’ personal biographies. Key experiences in this biography give insights in teachers’ personal interpretations, which reflect what they think is “good education”.  This study reports on student teachers’ and new teachers’ personal interpretations in their teaching practice, during and after an international teaching internship, and how this influences new teachers’ professional development. The international teaching experience interrupted existing, familiar ways of thinking or acting and gave the beginning teachers a new or different perspective on their teaching practice or the type of teacher they want to become.  The study also explored how the interruption of an international internship ..

A stratified treatment of idiopathic membranous nephropathy

A syndrome is a collection of symptoms which occur together and may point to a single underlying cause for these symptoms. In case of nephrotic syndrome the symptoms are massive protein loss via the urine (i.e. proteinuria of more than 3.5 grams per 24 hours), low serum protein level, in particular low serum albumin, and as a consequence severe edema and high serum lipid levels...

Altered Neurocognitive Functioning in Infants an Young Children Prenataly Exposed to Maternal Anxiety and Mindfullness

We argued that the fetal brain may be particular sensitive to developmental programming since the brain is subject to dramatic developmental processes during the prenatal life period and introduced the developmental origins of behavior, health and disease (DOBHaD) hypothesis. The central aim of this dissertation was to examine the effect of exposure to maternal anxiety during pregnancy on neurocognitive functioning in infants and young children. Because research in the DOBHaD field almost exclusively focused on the effects of negative maternal states and traits we also included a potential positive/protective factor in our study: maternal mindfulness...

Applications of Evolutionary Computation to Cryptology

The world has become a global village. This statement represents more than just a phrase. When Karinthy published his “Six degrees of separation” theory more than 80 years ago, it sounded almost unbelievable. Despite the fact that the human population grew several times larger in the meantime, that theory sounds more true today than ever before (although, strictly speaking it is not true if we consider isolated Amazonian tribes, for example)...

Appropriate Education by Co-Teaching
$29.95 Ex Tax:$28.25

The Dutch law, Passend Onderwijs (2014), and the Flemish M-Decree (2015) have a common goal: offering appropriate education for all children under 18 years. A policy objective is that students participate in mainstream education as much as possible. Both Passend Onderwijs and the M-Decree present a vision on providing appropriate learning environments for students, but putting these laws into practice has led to challenges that both pupils and teachers face. This dissertation attempts to discuss co-teaching as a substantive practical approach to create a powerful learning environment in a diverse educational context by gathering qualitative data...
