Monograph 'Open educational resources'  [cached]
Julià Minguillón
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2007,
Abstract: Open educational resources have been the subject of intense debate at an institutional level for a relatively short time, coinciding with the diffusion of diverse international experiences in this matter. This monograph presents various projects and proposals that address the issue from different approaches that are commonly employed within this ambit, combining methodological and technological aspects with examples of good practices that are introducing institutional policies in this direction within many organisations, both educational and from Public Administration.
Eeny Meeny Miney Mo – choices and consequences for graduate study in educational linguistics  [cached]
Rinelle Evans
Per Linguam : A Journal of Language Learning , 2011, DOI: 10.5785/26-1-16
Abstract: Novice researchers face interrelated and complex choices when embarking on an inquiry. The consequences or limitations of each decision may be far-reaching. This article is an auto-reflection on the intricate process of conceptualising and operationalising a thesis in which practical and contingent factors appear to have had a stronger influence in decision-making than philosophical frameworks or supervisory guidance. It aims to underscore the lengthy and often confusing route that graduates follow in pursuit of a higher degree. The target readership is students, emerging scholars, supervisors, and reflective practitioners in the educational linguistics research arena. The actual study pertained to a community project offering televised academic support to Grade 12 learners and sought to establish why the rate of oral interaction between presenter and learners was unexpectedly poor during instructional broadcasts. Key findings suggested that the rate of viewer participation during telelessons was not directly influenced by their limited English proficiency as initially anticipated, but by a combination of variables related to technical limitations, presenter nescience, and inappropriate methodological design.
Some polemical issues in Applied Linguistics
Schmitz, John Robert;
Revista Brasileira de Linguística Aplicada , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-63982010000100003
Abstract: in this paper, i look at three polemical issues in applied linguistics. i argue, first of all, that the desire for a stable definition of applied linguistics has by no means prevented research in the discipline. secondly, i contend that the notion or "tradition" of "linguistics applied" (corpus linguistics or lexicography) is broader and more serious than "applicationism" (the use of linguistic formalisms, artificial practices, and terminology) in teaching material that are problematic and motivated by commercial interests. thirdly, i argue that educational linguistics and applied linguistics have overlapping research objectives. in the course of the paper, i present some reservations about educational linguistics.

Language Teaching Research Based on Applied Linguistics Theory  [PDF]
Huihui Xing
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.612029
Abstract: In order to study language teaching under applied linguistic theory, two definitions of applied linguistics, the breakthrough in the definition of applied linguistics, and the return of the core content to education and teaching, are introduced. The research results of language teaching under the theory of applied linguistics in recent years are listed. Taking English language teaching as an example and combining with applied language teaching theory, relevant teaching experiments are designed. According to the experimental results, it is concluded that applied linguistic teaching theory can effectively improve students’ interest in learning and enhance the effectiveness of language learning. Finally, it is concluded that applied linguistics theory should be based on language teaching, change the way of language teaching, and better transfer knowledge to students.
Monograph 'Digital Culture and Creative Practices in Education'  [cached]
Juan Freire
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2009,
Abstract: The articles included in the monograph "Digital culture and creative practice in education" analyse the impact digital technology and the Internet are having on education, which is understood as a process based on knowledge, communication and social interaction. Teachers and students alike have been drastically transformed by the emergence of the digital culture, prompting the need for change in the role and organisation of educational institutions. More specifically, the Web 2.0 has given rise to creative and collaborative practises that favour a form of learning based on problem solving and "do-it-yourself" educational strategies. These experiences sometimes occur in the periphery of formal education. At the same time, educational technologies themselves have evolved in line with cultural changes, from centralised, closed models to open systems based on "cloud computing".

Monograph 'Quality Evaluation in Higher Education'
Gualberto Buela-Casal,ángel Castro
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2009,
Abstract: This introductory article for the monograph on "Quality Evaluation in Higher Education" demonstrates the importance of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the context of current university education. Firstly it underlines the relevance of technology and electronics in today's global and competitive context and highlights the use of the new tools for communication, particularly the Internet, by universities. Secondly it describes the importance that many of these tools are acquiring in quality evaluation in higher education, being used every day for more procedures, analyses and audits. Finally, it relates these trends and presents the rest of the articles in this monograph.
Monograph "Communication and construction of knowledge in the new technology space"  [PDF]
Javier Nó Sánchez
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2008,
Abstract: This monograph deals with the relationships between communication, the building of knowledge and the interactional area in which they operate, going in depth into the theory and on to practical uses. We consider that this area is the environment where interactions take place and that the methods are conditioned by its dimensions. There was a time when pedagogical styles and methods aimed to reproduce reality inside a classroom, or at least to find close analogies to the facts and phenomena that were being studied. The present-day technological environment goes beyond this practice and allows us to broaden the expanse where interactions take place, leading us towards or away from our object of knowledge. So strategic management is necessary, whether using forums, chats or blogs, whether with wikis, social networks or podcasts, or with any of the new ways to generate micro-content, to help us define the specific size and location of this space and to bring us closer to the stated educational objectives throughout the training course.
Preface to the seventh monograph  [cached]
Ajai R. Singh,Shakuntala A. Singh
Mens Sana Monographs , 2005,
Abstract: Like all good neighbours, competing schools of psychiatry claw at each other. Like all good samaritans, some people try to play arbiters and douse the fires. The tradition of fights and retaliation is not new to psy-chiatry, neither is it unique to the branch. Competing schools of thought exist almost everywhere. And it is tempting to say that the more intellec-tually robust a field, the greater the controversies and fights in it.In fact if intellectuals were to come together and not voice differences, either they are not intellectuals, or they have no opinions. (Or they may be simply scared, or silenced for other reasons.)Ofcourse we must note that while in other fields of thought there can be controversies, there is one essential difference. They may not be dealing with patients and their lives. And to that the corollary is that psychiatric controversies should not be carried out at the expense of patient welfare.Having said that, let us also note that when there are fights, arbiters become very active. As do advocates, of one or the other approach.In this monograph we have tried to act the arbiters. Maybe because it is appropriate. Maybe also because that's the only thing we can do (and may be do well: atleast that's what we would love to believe).Why not advocates ? Well, for one, there are so many already. For another, we run the risk of doing a poor job of it.Not that we have necessarily done a good job of being arbiters.
