A revised and updated edition of the international bestseller Inspiring readers all over the globe to reimagine their future, this revised and updated edition of What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 features new material to complement the classic text. Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us if we make the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. As head of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig's job is to guide her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world-providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is a wildly popular and award-winning teacher and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students -provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with captivating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving unprecedented success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible; how to recover from failure; and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was Twenty is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark in the world.
This book provides a detailed introduction to the process of developing monitoring and evaluation systems which will provide a foundation on which to develop personal and organisational learning. It is based on INTRAC's research, consultancy and training work and is rooted in real experiences. The guide will enable people who have limited experience of M&E to grasp its core concepts, and to apply them to the development of an M&E system. The guide is sufficiently concise to be read from cover to cover and will equally function as a reference work. Reference sections provide information about different approaches, tools and methodologies which will enable readers to fine-tune their approach to their particular set of needs and circumstances. This guide is offered as a contribution to the development community to assist it in its work and facilitate the processes of action and reflection, or 'Praxis'.
South Africa has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment and is renowned for being one of the most unequal societies in the world. In this context, training and education play critical roles in helping young people escape poverty and unemployment. Post-school Education offers insights about the way in which young people in South Africa navigate their way through a host of post-school training and education options. The topics range from access to, and labour market transitions from, vocational education, adult education, universities, and workplace-based training. The individual chapters offer up-to-date analyses, identify some of the challenges that young people face when accessing training and education and also point to gaps between education and the labour market. The contributors are all experts in their respective components but write with a holistic view of the post-school education system, using an unashamedly empirical lens. Post-school Education will be of interest to all researchers and policymakers concerned with the transformative role of further education and training in society.

More than a century of research has sought to identify the causes of stuttering, describe its nature, and enhance its clinical treatment. By contrast, studies directly focused upon public and professional attitudes toward stuttering began in the 1970s. Recent work has taken this research to new levels, including the development of standard attitude measures; ad-dressing the widely reported phenomena of teasing, bullying, and discrimination against people who stutter; and attempting to change public opinion toward stuttering to more accepting and sensitive levels. Stuttering Meets Stereotype, Stigma, and Discrimination: An Overview of Attitude Research is the only reference work to date devoted entirely to the topic of stuttering attitudes. It features comprehensive review chapters by St. Louis, Boyle and Blood, Gabel, Langevin, and Abdalla; an annotated bibliography by Hughes; and experimental studies by other seasoned and new researchers. The book leads the reader through a maze of research efforts, emerging with a clear understanding of the important issues involved and ideas of where to go next. Importantly, the evidence base for stuttering attitude research extends beyond research in this fluency disorder to such areas as mental illness, obesity, and race. Thus, although of interest primarily to those who work, interact, or oth-erwise deal with stuttering, the book has potential for increasing under-standing, ameliorating negative attitudes, and informing research on any of a host of other stigmatized conditions.
The jury is still out on how best to prepare high-quality teachers and leaders. How can the perceived "theory-practice divide" be addressed in teacher education? How can teacher educators and leaders tap into learning-from-practice approaches? One great way is to build authentic classroom and teaching experience into the student-teacher discourse. Leadership matters: School leadership and management cases is a set of practical cases for teacher-education students. Case-based and problem-based learning is at the core of this book with the content centering around leadership theories "in context". Students are exposed to "authentic problem contexts" that stimulate learner interest, motivate effort, challenge assumptions and situate learning in the classroom. The book is aimed at pre-service and in-service students. In addition, it is a practical resource for practitioners who would like to improve their practice. All the cases selected for this book are authentic, multi-layered, stimulating and relevant to the South African classroom setting with all its complex and specific challenges. The aim has been to focus on cases that are open-ended, allowing for a variety of interpretations and solutions. Every case is accompanied by questions that may initiate discussion.
