  1. Have We Been Thinking Upside-Down? The Contemporary Emergence of Pacific Theoretical Thought.Elise B. Huffer & Ropate Qalo - unknown
    Among the reams of volumes published on the Pacific, mostly by foreigners (but increasingly by Pacific Islanders), only a few have examined Pacific thought and how it relates to contemporary ideas, paradigms, and ways of doing. Existing material in this area has been written mainly by Pacific theologians, educators,and more recently by native and indigenous anthropologists and sociologists.

    Given the public attention rendered to Osborne’s writings on public management, it is both timely and necessary to provide a critique of his key books with various coauthors. His message is a simplistic version of NPM without any foundation in organisational theory or rational choice.

    This theoretical article attempts to examine the interrelation between individuals’ epistemological beliefs and their approaches to learning in sociocultural settings. The seminal work published by Marton and Säljo in the 1970s, and the research studies conducted subsequently by others (Biggs, 1987; Phan & Deo, 2007; Simons, Dewitte, & Lens, 2004; Watkins & Regmi, 1990) establish a theoretical understanding into the approaches to learning that individuals may adopt in their studying. More recently, however, a number of theorists (Mugler & Landbeck, 1997; (...)
