Don't cheat yourself: Scenarios to clarify collusion confusion

Katherine A. Seaton

2018

Ensuring academic integrity in mathematical tasks presents a unique challenge, for university students and for their assessors, and one that hitherto has been under-examined. Drawing on her twenty years of experience in mathematics education, the recent academic integrity research literature, and on what students say about why misconduct occurs, the author examines this issue head-on. Don’t Cheat Yourself: Scenarios to clarify collusion confusion facilitates intentional consideration of the nature and purpose of assessment in mathematics, and of how some types of interactions between students undermine that purpose. Pertinent and realistic scenarios are provided as prompts for discussion, through which students in mathematical disciplines can come to a better understanding of what constitutes copying and collusion, identify strategies for finding support, be warned of the short and long term consequences of misconduct, and be set up to learn collaboratively and work legitimately.

The Little Cell Who Lost Its Way

Ramtin Resai-Kashkooli, Carolyn Leslie

2019

One little cell had a very big dream.
In order to achieve this, it bonded with a team.

Merging together, the cells reaped lots of benefits
By forming strong bonds through the process of myogenesis.

Combining peer-reviewed science with an engaging rhyming text and fun illustrations, The Little Cell Who Lost Its Way tells the story of how an individual microscopic cell organises with others just like it to become a strong and flexible muscle fibre.

This ebook has been created for young children who are beginning to learn about the life sciences, and in this example, how cells form the building blocks of the body. It touches on themes of teamwork, biological development and the mysterious scientific process known as ‘myogenesis’.

It’s also great for education students and teachers who are exploring how to communicate complex scientific concepts to young people.

Victorian Aboriginal life and customs through early European eyes

David Frankel, Janine Major

2017

Within two generations of the first European settlement of Victoria traditional Aboriginal society was almost entirely destroyed. At the same time many European settlers, government officials and missionaries observed and documented aspects of the everyday lives of the people they were displacing. This selection of over 700 extracts from a wide variety of these sources provides glimpses into this rich and complex world. It includes notes on hunting, fishing and associated technologies; on clothing, ornaments and recreation; on social relationships, exchange systems, ceremonies and associations with Country.

This ebook is a convenient entry-point into this important body of information which is otherwise often difficult to access, and will be of use to anyone with an interest in Victorian Indigenous history and society.

How to do science:
A guide to researching human physiology

Louise Lexis, Brianna Julien

2017

How to do science: a guide to researching human physiology has been written for students of the life sciences who are actively engaged in the scientific process. A lot of support is available for students learning scientific facts, but we found that it was harder to find resources to support students to become scientists.

This ebook introduces you to what it means to be a scientist. You will learn about the scientific method and how to do many tasks of a scientist, your roles and responsibilities as a scientist as well as possible career paths, and how to use your skills as a science graduate to get a leg up in the job market.

Democracy in difference: Debating key terms of gender, sexuality, race and identity

Carolyn D'Cruz

2020

Democracy in difference: Debating key terms of gender, sexuality, race and identity focuses on concepts and analytical frames we use when discussing how marginalised identities navigate their place in an assumed common culture.

This ebook offers a path for exploring how we might build a shared vocabulary when working through the muddle of public debates like identity politics, political correctness, pronouns and what constitutes racism. Democracy in Difference is an unconventional interdisciplinary guide to key concepts, which borrows from decolonial methodologies, Marxism, feminism, queer theory and deconstruction.

Key terms are illustrated through written text, La Trobe Art Institute artworks (centering Indigenous artists), poetry, comedy and song, and customised animations which make difficult terms accessible.

Foundations of Biomedical Science: Quantitative Literacy Theory and Problems

Julian Pakay

2020

Modern Biomedicine is evidence-based, which means it is underpinned by quantitative data. Recent technological advances have led to Biomedicine (and Biology in general) becoming more “data driven” and hence more quantitative and predictive. Hence, now more than ever, an understanding of quantitative data is crucial for students of Biomedical disciplines.

Foundations of Biomedical Science: Quantitative Literacy Theory and Problems is designed to help students develop the fundamental mathematical and quantitative literacy required to navigate and interpret evidence-based Biomedical data. This ebook is divided into short chapters, each containing a concise summary of:

  • theory provided through a Biomedical context
  • authentic worked examples, problem sets and solutions
  • further extension and application of the theory.

These chapters build to provide students with the skills and confidence to habitually question any quantitative data they come across and to use these skills to make informed judgements regarding their veracity.

Australian pulps 1939–1959: You go high, we go low

Stuart Kells

2021

Popular during the middle parts of the 20th century, pulp fiction novels and comics were produced in massive quantities by Australian publishers. Most were written by hacks and enthusiastic amateurs willing to sign contracts that demanded an incredibly high output of work. Pulp publications were cheaply made, formulaic and designed to be read quickly and then thrown away. Often noted for their lurid cover art and titillating titles, they satisfied an appetite for fast entertainment in the era before television.

This book explores the pulp publishing scene in Australia from 1939 to 1959. It examines the circumstances that gave rise to this field of ‘low literature’; the major participants in it – publishers, authors and artists – and the different expressions of the pulp genre available to readers, including crime pulps, westerns, sci-fi, romance and ‘weird tales’.

The book is vividly illustrated with covers from the author’s own collection of Australian pulp novelettes. It provides an introduction to an under-regarded and little known sphere of Australian publishing. It is a valuable record of the mostly overlooked Australian writers involved, and the distinctive conditions under which these cultural products were produced.
