This book is the first to show how to integrate Personal Development Planning (PDP) activities into teaching in higher education. It is packed with activities, exercises, lesson plans, resources, reflective questionnaires, skills audits and case studies, and with suggestions for how these may be customized to suit different groups of students in different subject areas. By embedding activities into the curriculum, students are encouraged to engage with the PDP process to help them: gain a better understanding of what and how they are learning improve study skills gain a clear idea strengths and areas for development improve ability to explain and discuss skills and abilities with prospective employers, with the evidence to support your claims become a more effective, independent and confident self-directed learner.

Graduate Attributes in Higher Education illuminates the value of graduate attributes for students, graduates and lecturers in higher education. A coherent, intelligent, subtle and important enhancement to the field, this text guides readers through a theoretical and historical analysis of graduate attributes, using interdisciplinary and interprofessional lenses. This unique approach offers pertinent coverage of a wider range of graduate attributes than one usually sees, generating multiple perspectives and discourses that have implications for both theory and practice. Through an open and exploratory analysis, this text asks questions such as the following: • Are programmes of study which claim ‘postgraduate’ attributes providing something further, deeper or enhanced in comparison, or just more of the same? • Should we be developing continuing professional development attributes for our professional learning programmes of study, or are attributes of this nature established at the undergraduate level? • How can we embed graduate attributes in curricula in a wide range of subject discipline-specific and interdisciplinary ways? • In a culture of lifelong learning and a cross-disciplinary changing global market, are attributes simply a starting point – a launch pad for future and ongoing development required for a world of increasing complexity? Clearly structured and offering a mix of case study and theoretical frameworks to explore each GA, practical guidance is offered at the end of each chapter on how to embed the relevant graduate attribute whilst providing well-researched theoretical underpinning. The varied methods applied and methodological attitudes espoused will prove inclusive to a wide range of readers. Bringing together analysis of specific case studies from a wide range of professional and discipline-specific contexts, Graduate Attributes in Higher Education will be a valuable text for educators and professionals focused on curriculum development and professional learning.

"Sleight of Mouth" hat mit der Magie der Worte und der Sprache zu tun. Sprache ist eine der zentralen Komponenten, aus denen wir unsere geistigen Modelle der Welt entwickeln, und sie kann die Art, wie wir die Wirklichkeit wahrnehmen und wie wir auf sie reagieren, in ungeheurem Maße beeinflussen. Unglücklicherweise können Worte uns ebenso leicht verwirren und einschränken, wie sie uns Macht verleihen können. Dieses Buch handelt von der Macht der Worte, der positiven ebenso wie der negativen, von den Unterscheidungen, die ausschlaggebend dafür sind, welche Wirkung Worte auf uns haben, sowie von den sprachlichen Mustern, durch die wir schädliche Aussagen in nützliche verwandeln können. Die in diesem Buch beschriebenen sprachlichen Muster wurden gewonnen, indem untersucht wurde, wie Sprache benutzt wird und benutzt werden kann, um auf das Leben und die Emotionen von Menschen zu wirken. Viele der hier vorgestellten "Sleight-of-Mouth"--Muster wurden aufgrund der Analyse sprachlicher Muster von Menschen wie Sokrates, Karl Marx, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Milton Erickson und Jesus von Nazareth formuliert.
