The vision of a university in the British tradition: reflecting on the Universities Tests Act 1871: what have we developed and what are we losing?

Dr Judith Bonzol has recently completed a PhD in the history department at the University of Sydney (2011). Her thesis is entitled, ‗―The other sort of witches‖: cunning folk and supernatural illness in early modern England‘. She has written a book chapter, ‗Afflicted Children: Supernatural Illness, Fear, and Anxiety in Early Modern England‘, in Diseases of the Imagination and Imaginary Diseases in the Early Modern Period, published this year by Brepols, as well as journal articles on demonic possession, witchcraft, medicine, and cunning folk in Parergon and Renaissance and Reformation. She is currently working on contributions for Medicine, Alchemy, Science and the Occult in European Thought, to be published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing and an upcoming book on magic and witchcraft, edited by Lisa Hopkins and Helen Ostovich.

Modelling the Association between Core and Discretionary Energy Intake in Adults with and without Obesity.

Modelling the Association between Core and Discretionary Energy Intake in Adults with and without Obesity.

One hundred adults were recruited, 50 of healthy weight (BMI 18.5–24.9 kg/m 2 ) and 50 with obesity (BMI ≥ 30.0 kg/m 2 ). Participants were recruited through a post on the University of Sydney research volunteer website, flyers posted around the University campus and advertisements emailed to registrants of the Boden Institute clinical trials database. The advertisements invited individuals to participate in a study investigating a broad range of eating behaviours and their relationship to weight control. The advertisement did not state explicitly the authors’ intention to examine discretionary intake to reduce the risk of social desirability bias and subsequent underreporting. Participants provided informed written consent prior to study enrolment. To be eligible to participate, participants needed to be aged ≥ 18 years and able to complete the study materials adequately. Participants were excluded from the study if they: were currently enrolled in a weight management program, were on a restrictive diet, had gained or lost 5% of their body weight in the previous three months, were shift workers, were currently pregnant or breast feeding, had an eating disorder, had previous bariatric surgery, or were currently/previously enrolled in a nutrition degree.

How are Australian higher education institutions contributing to change through innovative teaching and learning in virtual worlds?

How are Australian higher education institutions contributing to change through innovative teaching and learning in virtual worlds?

The School of Information Studies built the CSU-SIS Learning Centre on Jokaydia in SL in 2009, a customised facility to support the teaching of distance education (DE) courses (Hay & McGregor, 2010). Library and information management and teacher librarianship subjects use SL requiring students to complete a number of learning activities inworld. DE students are encouraged to attend inworld discussion sessions hosted by faculty, guest speakers or student presentations; join a range of professional and educator groups; attend professional development activities; visit a range of libraries, university campuses, professional and education spaces; and meet with their lecturers for individual consultation (Gregory et. al., 2010). An evaluation of academics’ and students’ experiences using SL was conducted in 2010 (Hay & Pymm, 2011) with general consensus from both students and staff that the provision of teaching and learning experiences in SL is very worthwhile. In 2011 staff are exploring new ways to support teaching, research and professional development activities in the CSU-SIS Learning Centre. In the design of energy efficient buildings, students from the School of Education have made good use of Google SketchUp’s ‘geo-location’ feature to place virtual buildings onto a site where it is subjected to simulated sunlight at designated times of the day and year. Using this virtual environment, students walk through buildings and to assess according to their incorporation of passive solar design principles.
