Download Diversity und Profession: Eine biographisch narrative by Anne Rosken PDF

By Anne Rosken

Im Zentrum der vorgelegten Dissertation von Frau Rosken steht das Phänomen range und die Frage, welche Arten des professionellen Umgangs Erzieherinnen mit diesem Phänomen entwickeln. Eine entsprechende Untersuchung ist im Bereich Elementarer Bildung bislang unbekannt, die Arbeit von Frau Rosken hat damit Pilotfunktion. Dabei ist variety ein Begriff, der in den letzten Jahren als Ausdruck für - ziale Vielfalt, unterschiedliche Milieus und Ethnien, für divergierende Interessen und Bedürfnisse von Individuen und Gruppierungen in die Diskussion gekommen ist. Allzu oft gerät er in den Strudel intestine meinender Sichtweisen. was once dann bleibt, ist buntes Vielerlei und harmonisches Miteinander – zumindest als normatives ok- strukt. Gegen solche Formen des Weichzeichnens von Phänomenen der range setzt Anne Rosken mit der vorliegenden Arbeit einen eindeutigen Kontrapunkt. So forscht sie nach Diversity-Kompetenzen bei Erzieherinnen, d. h. nach Fähigkeiten, professionell mit Unterschieden und Ungleichheit, Fremdheit und Auffälligkeiten bei den Kindern umzugehen. Die Autorin richtet ihren Blick insbesondere auf das Wissen, auf subjektive pädagogische Konzepte, auf Haltungen sowie auf Fähigk- ten und Kompetenzen im pädagogischen Handeln im Kontext von variety. Sie vermutet, dass weniger pädagogisch-professionelle Konzepte und die berufliche Aus- und Fortbildung die Ausprägung dieser spezifischen Kompetenzen beeinfl- sen, da es entsprechende Konzepte, wenn überhaupt, ja auch nur in Ansätzen gibt.

Download Cooperativity and Regulation in Biochemical Processes by Arieh Y. Ben-Naim PDF

By Arieh Y. Ben-Naim

This is often the 1st e-book that makes an attempt to review the starting place of cooperatvity in binding structures from the molecular standpoint. The molecular method offers a deeper perception into the mechanism of cooperativity and legislation, than the normal phenomenological approach.
This ebook makes use of the instruments of statistical mechanics to offer the molecular concept of cooperativity. Cooperativity is utilized in numerous processes-such as loading and unloading of oxygen at particularly small strain ameliorations; holding a nearly consistent focus of varied compounds in dwelling cells; and switching off and on the studying of genetic information.
This booklet can be used as a textbook via graduate scholars in Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biophysics, and also will be of curiosity to researchers in theoretical biochemistry.
