In an era of longer hours and shorter contracts, of tighter margins and frequent organizational change, stress can undermine both the mental health and performance of employees. A culture of resilience in the workplace, however, offers the potential to support psychological wellbeing and improve the performance of both people and organizations.

This is the first book to provide managers with a guide to fostering psychological resilience within their teams. It synthesises not only the latest cutting-edge research in the area, but also translates this into practical advice for a range of organizational settings.

Chapters cover the following important issues:Key personality factors related to resilience How job design and routines can improve employee resilience How to build a resilient team Communicating change and improving teamwork Modelling resilient thinking and behaviour as a leader Selecting the right resilience training for your organisation

This is the ideal book for anyone interested in fostering a high-performance and emotionally resilient workforce, whether they are a manager, HR professional or occupational psychologist. Its cutting edge approach will also make it important reading for students and researchers of organizational and occupational psychology.

Miller, C., & Doering, A. (Eds.). (2014). The New Landscape of Mobile Learning: Redesigning Education in an App-Based World (1st ed.). Routledge. https://doi.org/10.4324/9780203108420

Ebook de acceso abierto disponible en la base de datos Taylor & Francis, https://www.taylorfrancis.com/books/mono/10.4324/9780203108420/new-landscape-mobile-learning-charles-miller-aaron-doering?context=ubx&refId=b3cbc651-8798-4aca-9990-97476770b34a

The New Landscape of Mobile Learning is the first book to provide a research based overview of the largely untapped array of potential tools that m-Learning offers educators and students in face-to-face, hybrid, and distance education. This cutting edge guide provides:

• An essential explanation of the emergence and role of Apps in education

• Design guidelines for educational Apps

• Case studies and student narratives from across the US describing successful App integration into both K-12 and Higher Education

• Robust, research-based evaluation criteria for educational Apps

Although many believe that Apps have the potential to create opportunities for transformative mobile education, a disparity currently exists between the individuals responsible for creating Apps (i.e. developers who often have little to no instructional experience) and the ultimate consumers in the classroom (i.e. K-20 educators and students). The New Landscape of Mobile Learning bridges this gap by illuminating critical design, integration, and evaluation narratives from leaders in the instructional design, distance education, and mobile learning fields.

Roudometof, V. (2016). Glocalization: A Critical Introduction (1st ed.). Routledge. https://doi.org/10.4324/9781315858296

Ebook de acceso abierto disponible en la base de datos de Taylor & Francis, https://www.taylorfrancis.com/books/mono/10.4324/9781315858296/glocalization-victor-roudometof?context=ubx&refId=e3621c3c-d5c2-459e-9933-057de6a949aa

This book seeks to provide a critical introduction to the under-theorized concept of Glocalization. While the term has been slowly diffused into social-scientific vocabulary, to date, there is no book in circulation that specifically discusses this concept. Historically theorists have intertwined the concepts of the ‘global’ and the ‘glocal’ or have subsumed the ‘glocal’ under other concepts – such as cosmopolitanization. Moreover, theorists have failed to give ‘local’ due attention in their theorizing. The book argues that the terms ‘global’, the ‘local’ and the ‘glocal’ are in need of unambiguous and theoretically and methodologically sound definitions. This is a prerequisite for their effective operationalization and application into social research. Glocalization is structured in two parts: Part I introduces the term, seeking to provide a history and critical assessment of theorists’ past use of glocalization and offering an alternative perspective and a clear, effective and applicable definition of the term, explaining the limitations of the term globalization and the value of defining glocalization. Part II then moves on to illustrate how the concept of glocalization can be used to broaden our understanding and analysis of a wide range of issues in world politics including the 21st century culture of consumption, transnationalism & cosmopolitanism, nationalism, and religious traditions. Utilizing a wide range of historical, ethnographic and real-life examples from various domains this work will be essential reading for students and scholars of Globalization and will be of great interest to those in the field of Global, Transnational and Cosmopolitan Studies.
