Positive Psychology in the Elementary Classroom: The Influence of Strengths-Based Approaches on Children’s Self-Efficacy  [PDF]
Rod Galloway, Bronwyn Reynolds
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.39003

Despite the positive psychology movement being relatively young and academic research is still building in this area, there is growing confidence that identifying and developing children’s strengths could have profound long-term learning benefits. The intended outcome of this investigation is to contribute to the knowledge base about learning success when children’s emerging preferences, passions and abilities are recognized and developed. This paper explores the foundations of strengths-based approaches for education and presents the findings of a case study that suggests strengths-based approaches have a positive effect on student self-efficacy.

The New Human Tissue Bill: Categorization and Definitional Issues and their Implications
Bronwyn Parry
Genomics, Society and Policy , 2005,
Abstract: While providing a welcome and timely revision of the now outdated Human Tissue Act of 1961, the newly introduced Human Tissue Bill of 2004 contains a number of anomalies in its drafting that threaten to undermine its effectiveness in practice. Two examples: the first relating to the status of 'remnant or waste' tissue and the second relating to the status and use of artefacts created from collected tissue are here employed to illustrate some of the definitional and categorical inconsistencies that are evident in the Bill. Having identified these, the paper then provides an analysis of how these inconsistencies may act to severely constrain the ways in which retained tissue may be lawfully employed in biomedical research and to confuse questions of who may, or may not, have formally recognised interests in types of processed human tissue.

Country Practice: A case study of regional public relations practice
Bronwyn Kirby
PRism Online PR Journal , 2008,
Abstract: Research into public relations practice in all settings is vital given the extent and spread of its practice. However, despite the maturity of the public relations profession and the number of public relations practitioners who operate outside metropolitan areas, there has been little research to identify the distinctive nature of public relations practice in regional locations.This research project begins a dissection of the nature of professional public relations practice in a non-metropolitan setting through the examination of public relations activity, workplaces and interactions in a regional locale. The project seeks to examine the specific nature of public relations practice in non-metropolitan Australia through a case study of two Victorian regional cities; Ballarat and Warrnambool. Analysis of these two sites provides the pilot stage for a larger future comparative examination of public relations practice in regional Australian centres with a variety of economic, demographic and geographic profiles.
Imagined Transcultural Histories and Geographies
Bronwyn Winter
PORTAL : Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies , 2012,
Abstract: In a globalised world, an assumption prevails that the nation has somehow lost its power to regulate our lives, being undermined by other forces, either top-down through the impact of global capitalism or bottom-up through migrations, transnational religious, ethnic or social movement communities or other transversal politics. A related idea is that ‘culture’ is now irrevocably hybridised and border-zoned, that we no longer live in a world of discrete, located, identifiable and historically grounded cultures but in some unstable and for-the-moment insterstitiality, a sort of cultural interlanguage that sits outside well-mapped structures of power. Yet, just as the nation and the boundaries it sets around culture are being conceptually chased from our maps of the world, they come galloping back to reassert themselves. They do so politically, economically, legally, symbolically. Amidst all the noise of our transnationalisms, hybridities and interstitialities, the idea of what it is to be ‘Australian’ or ‘French’ or ‘Filipino’ or ‘Asian’ reaffirms itself, in mental geographies and constructed histories, as our ‘imagined community’ (to use Benedict Anderson’s famous term [Anderson 1983]), or indeed, ‘imagined Other’, even if it is an imagined ‘Other’ that we would somehow wish to incorporate into our newly hybridised Self. Using the notion of transcultural mappings, the articles in this special issue investigate this apparent paradox. They look at how the Self and Other have been mapped through imagined links between geography, history and cultural location. They interrogate the tension between the persistence of mappings of the world based on discrete national or cultural identities on one hand, and, on the other hand, the push to move beyond these carefully guarded borders and problematise precise notions of identity and belonging.
The implications for qualitative research methodology of the struggle between the individualised subject of phenomenology and the emergent multiplicities of the poststructuralist subject: the problem of agency
Bronwyn Davies
Reconceptualizing Educational Research Methodology , 2010,
Abstract: This paper re-visits the problem of how we re-conceptualize human subjects within poststructuralist research. The turn to poststructuralist theory to inform research in the social sciences is complicated by the difficulty in thinking through what it means to put the subject under erasure. Drawing on a study in a Reggio Emilia inspired preschool in Sweden, and a study of neoliberalism's impact on academic work, this paper opens up thought about poststructuralism's subject. It argues that agency is the province of that subject.
There is Nothing that Identifies me to that Place’: Indigenous Women’s Perceptions of Health Spaces and Places
Bronwyn Fredericks
Cultural Studies Review , 2011,
Abstract: Indigenous women are more likely to suffer from poor health than non-Indigenous women, usually with one long term condition or several chronic diseases at once. High psychological distress, asthma, eye problems, diabetes and heart disease are common and we are ten times more likely than non-Indigenous women to have kidney disease. Our life expectancy is sixty-three years compared to non-Indigenous women’s mortality rate of eighty-three years. The delivery of inclusive health services is thus an important part of improving our life chances. However, even when such services are provided Indigenous women are reluctant to use them. In this article I discuss some of the impediments to the use of such services by considering how Indigenous women configure space and place in their everyday encounters within a health provision context.
Spatio-temporal patterns in multi-electrode array local field potential recordings
Bronwyn Woods
Quantitative Biology , 2015,
Abstract: This paper presents a method for the detection of traveling waves of activity in neural recordings from multi-electrode arrays. The method converts local field potential measurements into the phase domain and fits a series of linear models to find planar traveling waves of activity. Here I present the new approach in the context of the previous work it extends, apply the approach to data from neural recordings from a single animal, and verify the success of the method on simulated data. This paper was written in 2011, though it was uploaded to arXiv in 2014.
Theorizing Participation, Engagement and Community for Primary and Secondary Mathematics Classrooms  [PDF]
Bronwyn Ewing
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.86058
Abstract: Student engagement and participation in mathematics learning is increasingly mentioned in Australian policy and curriculum documents that focus on ways to improve student achievement. However, such ways are not always made clear, nor is what constitutes participation, engagement and community in primary and secondary mathematics classrooms. These elements are theorised and discussed to identify their meaning and their influences on teacher and student engagement in mathematics learning.
