This is a study of commercial spaces, focusing on the exploration of the existing relationship between the urban shapes and the design of commercial spaces. The planning of commercial activities cannot limit itself to purely economic and management dimensions, but should be central to any debate on the city. This inquiry contributes to illuminate the mechanisms of production of city and commercial systems that can be either mutually reinforcing or mutually negating. Our interpretation of the relationship between the commercial spaces and the city is based on the taxonomic study of commercial models that characterised Lisbon from 1970 to 2010. This analysis of its recent commercial history has led to the definition of three macro-categories of commercial systems that illustrate three types of relationships between the city and its commercial dimension: symbiotic, commensal, and parasitic.

Esta pesquisa aborda a primeira experiência sistemática de utilização do rádio como tecnologia educacional no Brasil: a Rádio Escola Municipal do Rio de Janeiro (PRD-5), inaugurada em 1934. A iniciativa foi concebida por Edgard Roquette-Pinto em meados dos anos 1920, quando o debate do uso de tecnologias educacionais ganhou força com as reformas estaduais dos sistemas de ensino. Com formação médica, contando com sólida carreira antropológica no Museu Nacional e envolvido no início oficial do rádio brasileiro, Roquette- Pinto elaborou um "diagnóstico" dos problemas nacionais fundamentando-se sobretudo no debate antropológico sobre a mestiçagem das décadas de 1910 e 20. Com essa base, propôs como "remédio" para resolver tais problemas a educação. Gravitando no entorno da Associação Brasileira de Educação (ABE), postulou que o rádio poderia chegar a todos que não tivessem acesso à escola. O intuito era "abrasileirar" o brasiliano, trazendo o sertanejo "atrasado" para um suposto nível mais avançado de "civilização". Seu fim último era um projeto de modernização conservadora, que teria os intelectuais como vanguarda capaz de moldar as "massas amorfas" e de conduzir a classe política para assegurar o desenvolvimento nacional. Em sua experiência da Rádio Sociedade do Rio de Janeiro (PRA-2)...

Tendo em vista a influência causada pelas mídias em nossa sociedade, esta dissertação buscou analisar, qualitativamente, as produções acadêmicas que tratavam da utilização do Cinema tomando como foco o ensino de Ciências. Para isso, foram pesquisados três bancos de dados (ENPEC, CEDOC e SIBIUSP) em um recorte temporal definido (de 1997 até 2009) e, tomando como base uma metodologia baseada no Estado da arte, foi possível estabelecer descritores que melhor categorizassem os trabalhos encontrados. Com os dados obtidos e catalogados em tabelas foi possível concluir que a quantidade de pesquisas destinadas ao uso de filmes comerciais para o ensino de Ciências é muito pequena e recente, pois está concentrado a partir do ano de 2002 com algumas oscilações e um pico em 2009. Durante a seleção do material, percebeu-se que existem mais trabalhos que envolvam filmes comerciais para discussões na área da História, Filosofia e Antropologia do que para tratar de assuntos relacionados à Ciências. Dentre as causas apontadas para este fato, estão o despreparo por parte do profissional da educação em lidar com os equipamentos e com a linguagem audiovisual e o receio de que filmes comerciais possam conter erros conceituais. Assim...

Este estudo tem como objetivo analisar a história do curso de Ciências Contábeis da Faculdade de Ciências Econômicas da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), sendo este o primeiro curso de Ciências Contábeis do Estado, remontando sua origem com a criação da Escola de Comércio de Porto Alegre, em 1909, sua independência e consolidação com a criação do curso de Ciências Contábeis e Atuariais em 1946 e sua evolução até o presente momento. Para atingir este objetivo realizou-se uma pesquisa qualitativa fundamentada em referências bibliográficas. Com o aumento da complexidade da vida econômica, o crescimento comercial, o processo de divisão do trabalho e a necessidade de especialização de atividades, surge uma necessidade premente de qualificar-se profissionais para efetuarem escrituração mercantil nos estabelecimentos comerciais e órgãos públicos. A partir da organização dos profissionais contábeis no final do século XIX, o ensino comercial emerge como uma nova opção aos estudantes e profissionais que buscavam novas oportunidades. A origem do curso de Ciências Contábeis da UFRGS se dá com a criação da Escola Superior de Comércio, anexa à Faculdade Livre de Direito, motivada pela força que o ensino contábil tomara com a fundação da Escola Mauá...

A exploração sexual infanto-juvenil é um fenômeno presente na sociedade brasileira e tema que têm ganhado espaço nos meios acadêmico, de comunicação e político. Frente a essa problemática, como uma das formas de enfrentamento ao fenômeno, sociedade e Estado vêm se organizando e implementando ações de intervenção junto às crianças e jovens que vivenciam a exploração sexual. Este trabalho buscou investigar uma experiência de educação não-formal que acontece no município de Campinas (SP), o Projeto EESCCA, desenvolvido pela organização nãogovernamental (ONG) Centro de Educação e Assessoria Popular (CEDAP), e cuja proposta é o trabalho com jovens em situação de exploração sexual comercial. A realização desse trabalho se deu através de uma pesquisa qualitativa de caráter etnográfico e participante. Fez-se uso de observação participante e de entrevistas como técnicas para o trabalho de campo. Buscou-se analisar as práticas e ações educativas e os sentidos atribuídos a esse contexto pelos sujeitos participantes do Projeto EESCCA, ou seja, profissionais e jovens. Para tanto, buscou-se essa compreensão a partir de teorias a respeito da educação não formal, de estudos sobre a exploração sexual comercial e de alguns aspectos abordados no livro Respeito...

The study reviews the experience in the EU8 countries of the emergence of private higher education institutions and introduction of fees for student who do not gain regular admission. This has resulted in a dual-track system that is affecting the equity of access to higher education. The authors have addressed this with a variety of financing mechanisms in the EU8 countries and seek to develop some useful policy options to "level the playing field" for countries contemplating further reforms, which would include the introduction of variable fees, needs-based grants and loans to increase private financial flows into higher education while facilitating equal access across the board. The study begins with and introduction. Chapter 2 provides an overview of current higher education systems in the EU8 in a comparative perspective. Chapter 3 suggests some directions for further reform initiatives. Chapter 4 concludes.

This report emphasizes that cross-border tertiary education refers to the movement of people, programs, providers, curricula, projects, research and services in tertiary (or higher) education across national jurisdictional borders. Cross-border education is a subset of educational internationalization and can be part of development cooperation projects, academic exchange programs and commercial initiatives. The focus of this volume is on the mobility of students, programs and providers/institutions. Student mobility remains relatively small, but has grown at an unprecedented pace in the past decade. The study concludes that cross-border tertiary education can be a helpful capacity development tool that countries and donor countries and agencies should consider in their development strategies. Finally, with the growth of trade in education services and the inclusion of the sector in the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), countries and their education community should develop a better technical understanding of trade agreements. These agreements can be a tool in their capacity-building strategy...

This paper examines the financing of tertiary education in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, comparing the affordability and accessibility of tertiary education with that in high-income countries. To measure affordability, the authors estimate education costs, living costs, grants, and loans. Further, they compute the participation rate, attainment rate, and socio-economic equity index in education and the gender equity index as indicators of accessibility. This is the first study attempting to estimate affordability of tertiary education in Latin America within a global context. The analysis combines information from household surveys, expenditure surveys, and administrative and institutional databases. The findings show that families in Latin America have to pay 60 percent of per-capita income for tertiary education per student per year compared with 19 percent in high-income countries. Living costs are significant, at 29 percent of gross domestic product per capita in Latin America (19 percent in high-income countries). Student assistance through grants and loans plays a marginal role in improving affordability. Moreover...

Take-up of voluntary financial education programs is typically extremely low. This paper reports on randomized experiments around a large financial literacy course offered in Mexico City to understand the reasons for low take-up, and to measure the impact of financial education. It documents that the general public displays little interest in such courses and that participation is low even among individuals who express interest in financial education. The paper experimentally investigates barriers to take-up, and finds no impact of relaxing reputational or logistical constraints and no evidence that time inconsistency is the reason for limited participation. Even relatively sizeable monetary incentives get less than 40 percent of interested individuals invited to training to attend. Using a randomized encouragement design, the authors measure the impact of the course on financial knowledge and behavior. Attending training results in a 9 percentage point increase in financial knowledge and a 9 percentage point increase in saving outcomes...

The purpose of this report is to support the government of the Arab Republic of Egypt in reviewing the status of the pre-university education sector; and in identifying the key challenges it faces as it develops and implements a strategic plan to enhance its base of human capital. The key overarching finding, based primarily on the analyses presented in the second, third and fourth chapters of this report is that while significant progress has been made in providing more educational opportunities to Egyptian citizens, the quality of that educational experience is low and unequally distributed, leading to unequal educational outcomes. While inputs are important to quality, the authors also define quality in terms of specific outcomes that indicate learning at a level necessary to compete in a global marketplace. For instance, international test results, such as the trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), are taken to be a strong indicator of educational outcomes that matter, and quality education is generally assumed to impact those outcomes. In addition...

The Palestinian Education System comprises a Mandatory Basic Cycle covering Grades 1 to 10, divided into the Preparation Stage (Grades 1 to 4) and the Empowerment Stage (Grades 5 to 10). Optional Secondary Education covers Grades 11 and 12, with the option of general secondary education, and a few vocational secondary schools. Post secondary education is offered in 11 universities, (10 private and one public), 11 technical colleges (4 government, 2 UNWRA, 4 public and 1 private) which offer mainly 4 year programs. In addition there are 19 community colleges (1 government, 9 public, 2 UNRWA, and 7 private) that offer mainly two-year diploma courses in technical and commercial specializations. The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) developed in 1999 a five-year Education Development Plan for the period 2000-2005. This was the first time after the establishment of the Palestinian Authority in 1994 that the MOEHE developed a National Plan with a unified vision for the Palestinian education system from pre-school to secondary education.

The evolution in the nature of international trade has an impact on higher education mobility. The shift towards greater flows of human capital, knowledge and skills sees a return of training to its roots in education so as to cultivate the necessary skills for the changing world. The major causes behind these trends are the developments of globalisation and furthering of communication technology; both of which have also heightened the value of the services industry, in a seemingly smaller world with closer interaction and consolidation of the global job market. There are several ways of approaching this discussion. The first approach recognises that higher education mobility and the education sector in general are highly valuable to the economies of the EU and Australia. Australia has invested much into higher education mobility, through financial support for Australian students' tuition fees and study exchange programmes, and institutions in order to develop the necessary skills for a knowledge-based economy. From another approach, the processes of globalisation are creating a new form of statehood, known as the "post-modern" state, where its citizens are global citizens. Closer interaction of the international community may highlight cultural differences...

In Taiwan, the college freshmen are recruited graduates of both senior high school and senior vocational school. The Ministry of Education (MOE) of the Republic of China prescribes the standards of curriculum and equipment for schools at all levels and categories. There exists a considerably different curriculum arrangement for senior high schools and vocational high schools in Taiwan at the present time. The present study used a causal-comparative research design to identify the influences of different post-secondary educational background on specialized course performance of college business majors. ^ The students involved in this study were limited to the students of four business-related departments at Tamsui Oxford University College in Taiwan. Students were assigned to comparison groups based on their post-secondary educational background as senior high school graduates and commercial high school graduates. The analysis of this study included a comparison of students' performance on lower level courses and a comparison of students' performance in financial management. The analysis also considered the relationship between the students' performance in financial management and its related prerequisite courses. The Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI) survey was administered to categorize subjects' learning styles and to compare the learning styles between the two groups in this study. The applied statistical methods included t-test...

An often-repeated remark about George Kingsley Acquah, Ghana's chief justice from 2003 until 2007 and driver of his country's major judicial reforms was that "it took a man like him for this to happen". The author certainly subscribe to this view, having observed his impact from position as director of the judicial reform, project development and implementation unit at the judicial service of Ghana. Doubtless, most prominent reform is the establishment of the commercial division at the High Court in Accra, the first commercial court in Ghana, and possibly the most significant addition to the judicial service since independence. After decades of political turmoil that had left behind a disrupted court system, the reform not only brought about shorter delays to commercial dispute resolution. It also instilled new spirit in Ghana's justice sector. In light of Ghana's policy objective of becoming a middle income country by 2020, the state of legal affairs looked dire a mere 10 years ago. Military rule had given way to an emerging democracy only in the 1990s. In 1982...

Providing quality training that leads young people to jobs is critical for the economic and social development of the Province of Sindh, Pakistan. This working paper assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the Sindh Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (STEVTA) as a provincial apex body in Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET). The recent establishment of STEVTA was a major step to reduce fragmentation of training policies and programs. The paper assesses the Authority's legal foundation, governance, management, organization, human resources, financial resources and management, and networking with external organizations. The institutional assessment finds that Government of Sindh and STEVTA need to: (i) strengthen its governance by establishing a clearer reporting structure for the management of the authority's director, and by increasing the involvement of the private sector in the board, (ii) enhance its institutional capacity through hiring of teachers in its institutions based upon increased funding and a sustainable HR rationalization plan for the system that is coordinated with planned physical investments in institutions...

Commercial video games are increasingly using sophisticated physics simulations to create a more immersive experience for players. This also makes them a powerful tool for engaging students in learning physics. We provide some examples to show how commercial off-the-shelf games can be used to teach specific topics in introductory undergraduate physics. The examples are selected from a course taught predominantly through the medium of commercial video games.; Comment: Accepted to Physics Education, Fig1 does not render properly in this version

This mixed-method cross-sectional study evaluated the effect of commercial sanitary pads on school attendance and symptoms of vaginal infections in rural Kenyan adolescents aged 11-18. It also provides contextual information that situates the data gathered on school attendance and vaginal infections in the broader experience of girls managing their menstruation. A sequential design was used for this study with a total of 8 qualitative focus groups and a quantitative survey. A total of 482 girls were surveyed, with 321 who were currently attending school and 151 who had dropped out of school. Qualitative data from focus groups was analyzed using applied thematic analysis, while the effect of commercial sanitary pads as well as the effect of using other items on school attendance and symptoms of vaginal infections was estimated using logistic regression analysis. Overall, girls reported that menstruation negatively affects their experience at school and in the classroom and causes an array of negative emotions. Girls also conveyed having to often leave school to change or bathe due to menstrual leaks and missing class lessons as a result. Poor concentration in class attributed to menstrual pain and worry over potential leaks was also mentioned. Lastly...
