Experienced Teachers Reflecting on Challenging Situations in School  [PDF]
May Britt Postholm
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.79136
Abstract: The aim of this study is to develop an understanding of how teachers in a lower secondary school deal with challenging situations in the classroom and whether or not they experience that they can obtain help in coping with these situations. Three teachers with five to nine years of teaching experience took part in semi-structured interviews. Before the interviews and before they started to write log book entries for fourteen days to document and reflect on these situations as they occurred in their work in school, the teachers were told that they were to focus on what they felt were challenging situations in their practice. The study shows that these three teachers have various experiences of what they find is difficult to tackle, and that these situations are related to experiences they have had before they started in their profession, and to their values and beliefs. The study also shows that there are common situations that the three teachers perceive as difficult. It becomes evident from the analysis of the data material that they think that good relations between teacher and pupils and between pupils themselves, thus a trustful learning environment, are a good foundation from which to learn to deal with challenging situations in the classroom. They also agree that sharing experiences and solving problems together helps them to tackle challenging situations in school. The teachers think that their basic teacher education has had little influence on their school practice, and they emphasise that further education taken either on campus or with school as the learning arena helps them in their daily practice when confronted with challenging situations.
A starting point of learning to teach science topics at the primary level - The Teacher Education Programme
CHENG May Hung, May
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching , 2001,
Abstract: This paper describes the experience of a group of student-teachers in an initial teacher education programme at the Hong Kong Institute of Education. In preparing the student-teachers to teach science, the programme introduced a module on science teaching that included a discussion of the various approaches to teach science and in particular, teaching science with a constructivist view of learning was discussed. The focus of the study is to look at the development of the student-teachers at three phases: before they took the module on science teaching; after they took the module and after their teaching practice period. The student-teachers were interviewed at the three phases and their views on science teaching; feelings about being a science teacher in school and their own experiences in learning to teach were collected and analysed. Drawing on the findings, the paper concludes with the possible factors that influence the development of the student-teachers as they learn to teach.
Teachers’ and School Leaders’ Perceptions of Further Education and Learning in School  [PDF]
May Britt Postholm, Klara Rokkones
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.623252
Abstract: This article focuses on further education of teachers and the importance of the relationship between further education and the visions and development strategies of schools. The study shows that if further education is to contribute to change and development in schools beyond what individual teachers learn, the school has to be organized as a learning community. This means that the school must have a vision. This in turn demands that schools are led in a manner that allocates arenas and room for communication where visions and targets can be formulated and understood through common dialogue.
Effect of PWHT with Sheet-Type Ceramic Heater on Compressive Behaviors of Non-Stiffened Welded Steel Box Columns  [PDF]
May Phyo Aung, Mikihito Hirohata
World Journal of Engineering and Technology (WJET) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/wjet.2018.61003
Abstract: A series of fundamental experimental investigation was conducted in order to examine the effect of PWHT by sheet-type ceramic heater on the residual stress, deformation and compressive behavior of non-stiffened welded box columns. The sheet-type ceramic heater was able to control the required temperature history for PWHT with high accuracy. The welding-induced tensile and compressive residual stresses of the specimens were reduced by 90% and 76% respectively with PWHT. Besides, PWHT could reduce the welding-induced out-of-plane deformation by 22%. It was revealed that the PWHT specimens had a slight higher stiffness than the As-welded specimens when applying monotonic static compressive load on both As-welded and PWHT specimens. They could also enhance the ultimate compressive load capacity about 32% of that of the As-welded specimens. The effectiveness of PWHT with the sheet-type ceramic heater could be confirmed.

A rational model for assessing and evaluating complex interventions in health care
Carl May
BMC Health Services Research , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-6-86
Abstract: Between 1995 and 2005 multiple qualitative studies were undertaken. These examined: professional-patient relationships; changing patterns of care; the development, evaluation and implementation of telemedicine and related informatics systems; and the production and utilization of evidence for practice. Data from these studies were subjected to (i) formative re-analysis, leading to sets of analytic propositions; and to (ii) a summative analysis that aimed to build a robust conceptual model of the normalization of complex interventions in health care.A normalization process model that enables analysis of the conditions necessary to support the introduction of complex interventions is presented. The model is defined by four constructs: interactional workability; relational integration; skill set workability and contextual integration. This model can be used to understand the normalization potential of new techniques and technologies in healthcare settingsThe normalization process model has face validity in (i) assessing the potential for complex interventions to become routinely embedded in everyday clinical work, and (ii) evaluating the factors that promote or inhibit their success and failure in practice.Health care providers increasingly seek new technological and organizational means of improving the efficiency and clinical and cost effectiveness of clinical care and health service delivery [1]. The assessment and evaluation of these solutions has become a major focus of investigation in health services research and health technology assessment. For both decision-makers and evaluation researchers, conceptualizing the practical workability of new treatment modalities or information systems, and assessing their potential for integration in healthcare settings, are key problems. The purpose of this article is therefore to present a rational conceptual model – the normalization process model – that can assist both service provider and research constituencies in underst
Tagungsessay: ffentliche und private Erz hlungen Conference Essay: Public and Private Narratives Ensayo: Narrativas públicas y privadas
Vanessa May
Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2004,
Abstract: Dieser Tagungsessay besch ftigt sich mit einer Konferenz über Erz hlung. Das Feld der Erz hlforschung ist von Natur aus interdisziplin r, was bestimmte St rken und Schw chen zur Folge hat, die w hrend der Konferenz evident geworden sind. So fehlte zwar teilweise Koh renz angesichts der unz hligen Ans tze zur Definitionen von Narration und zur Erz hlanalyse. Zugleich wurde aber auch das Potenzial sichtbar, das sich ergeben kann, wenn diese Schw che überwunden wird und ein fruchtbarer Austausch entsteht in einem wahrhaft interdisziplin ren Feld: Konzepte und Theorien k nnen von einer Disziplin zur anderen "wandern" und dabei neue Bedeutung gewinnen sowie neue Einsichten erm glichen. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192 This essay examines a conference on narrative. The field of narrative studies is by nature interdisciplinary, which leads to certain strengths and weaknesses, both of which were evident during the conference. On the one hand, as a result of the myriad approaches to and definitions of narrative and narrative analysis, the conference perhaps lacked a sense of coherence. However, the conference showed that overriding this weak-ness in narrative studies is the fruitful cross-fertilization that can occur when a field is truly interdisciplinary. Thus, concepts and theories can and do travel from one discipline to another, gaining new meaning and providing new insight on the way. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192 Este ensayo examina una conferencia sobre narrativa. El campo de los estudios narrativos es por naturaleza interdisciplinario, lo que le somete a ciertas fortalezas y debilidades, según fue evidenciado durante la conferencia. Por una parte, como resultado de los innumerables enfoques y las definiciones de narración y análisis narrativo, quizás la conferencia careció de cierta coherencia. En todo caso, la conferencia mostró que primordialmente esa debilidad de los estudios narrativos es la fructífera fertilización cruzada que tiene lugar cuando un campo es verdaderamente interdisciplinario. Así, los conceptos y las teorías pueden y están moviéndose de una disciplina a otra, ganando nuevos significados y proporcionando nuevas aportaciones por el camino. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401192
A proper subclass of Maclane's class ° ’
May Hamdan
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1999, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171299224635
Abstract: The MacLane's class ° ’ of analytic functions is the class of nonconstant analytic functions in the unit disk that have asymptotic values at a dense subset of the unit circle. In this paper, we define a subclass ¢ of ° ’ consisting of those functions that have asymptotic values at a dense subset of the unit circle reached along rectifiable asymptotic paths. We also show that the class ¢ is a proper subclass of ° ’ by constructing a function f ¢ ° ’ that admits no asymptotic paths of finite length.
Human settlement and land use at Trévelez (Sierra Nevada). A historical-geographical approach
May, T.
Pirineos : Revista de Ecología de Monta?a , 1991,
Abstract: Based on written documents of the 16th, 18th and 19th century and on information from a publication of the early 19 70s, as well as on our own field observations, we attempt to describe the evolution of settlement and land use in the territory of Trévelez (Sierra Nevada, Provincia de Granada, Spain), from the end of the morisco period until the present. After the Christian colonization in 1572, a process of extensification took place, which resulted in a type of land use which gave great importance to rainfed cereal agriculture and husbandry of small ungulates. From the end of the 18th century/beginning of the 19th century onward, there are indications of another process of agricultural intensification and diversification, with great importance given to irrigated cultivation. During the past two decades, an abandonment of agricultural areas can be observed, as well as an increase in activities linked to tourism and a certain recuperation of sheep and goat husbandry. It must be pointed out that land use has been submitted to important changes during the past, and that the "traditional" agricultural landscape is of relatively recent origin. [es] En base a documentos escritos del siglo XVI, XVIII, XIX y apoyándonos en una publicación de la primera mitad de los a os 1970, así como en observaciones propias de campo se intenta describir la evolución del poblamiento y de los usos del suelo en el término de Trévelez (Sierra Nevada, Prov. de Granada), desde el final de los tiempos moriscos hasta la actualidad. Después de la colonización cristiana de 1572 tuvo lugar un proceso de extensificación, dando paso a un tipo de uso del suelo en que el cultivo en secano de cereales y la ganadería menor tenían gran importancia. A partir de finales del siglo XVIII principios del siglo XIX hay indicios de un segundo proceso de intensificación y diversificación de la agricultura, con gran importancia del regadío. Durante los últimos dos decenios, se observa un abandono de las superficies cultivadas, un aumento de las actividades en torno al turismo, y cierta recuperación de la importancia de la ganadería menor. Cabe destacar que los usos del suelo han sido sometidos a cambios importantes, durante épocas del pagado, y que el pasaje agrícola "tradicional" es de origen relativamente reciente. [de] Aufgrund schriftlicher Dokumente aus dem 16., 18. und 19. Jahrhundert, au erdem mit Informationen einer neueren Ver ffentlichung und unter Berücksichtigung eigener Gel ndebeobachtungen wird versucht, die Entwicklung von Besiedelung und Landnutzung in der Gemeinde Trevelez (Sierra Nevada
