FREPA: a framework of reference for pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures: competences and resources.
- Corporate Author:
- Council of Europe
The term pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures refers to didactic approaches which involve the use of several (or at least more than one) variety of languages or cultures simultaneously during the teaching process. By abandoning the "compartmentalised" view of an individual's linguistic and cultural competence(s), this publication is a valuable step towards implementing the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, in particular its rationale on plurilingual and intercultural competence. The publication presents a comprehensive list of descriptors (Knowledge, Attitudes and Skills) considered necessary within the perspective of a plurilingual and intercultural education. The same descriptors are available online, in graphic form, where the user can see at what stage of the educational process the authors would recommend the development of each resource and its sub-categories. It provides teaching materials for putting the development of these resources into practice. The teacher can select an activity from a database according to the specific resources for knowledge, skills and attitudes which s/he has identified from the framework.
Report on the Planning Bill (NIA 17/11-15): fourth report session 2011/15: [Report] together with the minutes of proceedings, minutes of evidence and written submissions relating to the report. Vol. 1
Northern Ireland Assembly reports (Session 2011-15) - 119/11-15.
- Anna Lo (chairperson)
The Committee has considered each of the reforms contained in the Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 whose implementation the Planning Bill makes provision for accelerating. The Committee is satisfied that it is right to accelerate the introduction of each of these reforms. Bringing forward these reforms not only means allowing them to become understood and established in advance of the transfer of powers but also that the benefits of them can be realised sooner. In addition, the Bill makes provision for the introduction of two new reforms which were not contained within the 2011 Act. These additional provisions are intended to underpin the role of planning in promoting economic development. The first (clause 2) provides for the Department of the Environment (and the Planning Appeals Commission) when exercising particular functions to do so with a new objective of promoting economic development (alongside the objectives of furthering sustainable development and promoting or improving well-being). The second (clause 6) provides that material considerations in the determination of planning applications includes a reference to considerations relating to any economic
Quality assurance of pharmaceuticals: WHO guidelines, related guidance and GXP training materials [CD-ROM]. update 2013.
- Corporate Author:
- World Health Organization. WHO's Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations
Quality assurance of pharmaceutical products is a continuing concern of WHO. Despite efforts made around the world to ensure a supply of quality and effective medicines, substandard, spurious, falsified and counterfeit products still compromise health care delivery in many countries. To respond to the global need for adequate quality assurance of pharmaceuticals, WHO's Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations has over the years made numerous recommendations to establish standards and guidelines and to promote the effective functioning of national regulatory and control systems and the implementation of internationally agreed standards by trained personnel. More than 70 relevant documents endorsed by the Committee are reproduced in this CDROM, providing guidance covering all aspects of quality assurance including good manufacturing practices (GMP). This CD-ROM replaces and updates the Compendium of Guidelines and Related Materials published in 2010 and also includes the WHO Training Modules on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) study pack with a huge set of training materials reflecting the various GMP texts.

Water chemistry and clad corrosion/deposition including fuel failures: proceedings of a technical meeting held in Kiev, Ukraine, 2010. 2013 ed. (CD-ROM).
IAEA TECDOC CD series 1692.
- Corporate Author:
- International Atomic Energy Agency
This publication presents the proceedings of a technical meeting on water chemistry and clad corrosion/deposition including fuel failures, which was held in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2010. The outcome of the meeting is a summary report which provides state of the art information on the corrosion of reactor material, including fuel cladding, the causes of corrosion product deposition and the means in use to minimise the deleterious effects from these processes. There were 22 participants from 15 countries who attended the meeting. Nineteen papers were presented in three technical sessions, covering operational experience, corrosion and oxidation and clad deposition and its consequences.
