ICAD’98 A Pedagogy of Creative Thinking based on Sonification of Visual Structures and Visualization of Aural Structures
- Eric Somers
This paper describes two related pedagogies for design education – one for teaching visual design and the other for teaching sound composition – in which the symbols and organizational principles of aural experience are transformed to the visual domain and vice versa. The purpose of the pedagogies is to develop in the student the ability to visualize and auralize from direct observation as an alternative to copying and modifying existing designs. The paper begins with a discussion of visual and aural perception and their relationship to thinking and imagination. The author then describes the use of semiotic transformation in teaching...
A Longitudinal Study Comparing Undergraduate Student Performance in Traditional Courses to the Performance in Online Course Delivery." The Information Systems Education Journal, 3(20), retrieved from http://isedj.org/3/20
- Gary Ury
As online instruction has become more prevalent at the college and university level, researchers have attempted to measure the success of these programs through a variety of methodologies, instruments, and sample sizes. A need for continued exploration and study to assure quality instruction has existed as technologies and pedagogies change. The purpose of this study was to compare course performance over time between online and traditional classroom students enrolled in a required management information systems course included in the business school’s common professional component and an elementary programming course taught by the Computer Science Department. In both courses, the online...
IMPLICATIONS, LARGE AND SMALL, FROM CHEMICAL EDUCATION RESEARCH FOR THE TEACHING OF CHEMISTRY#
- Peter J. Fensham
Research studies in chemical education pose a communication problem for chemists. Unlike the findings from other specializations in chemistry the findings in chemical education tend to be reported in education journals that are not readily accessible to most chemists or chemistry teachers. This lecture is an attempt to remedy this gap in communication. Research studies fall into three broad categories. (i) issues related to the content of chemistry itself, that is, What content to teach? And What meaning of each topic is to be conveyed? (ii) issues related to how chemical content is taught, such as, the role of lectures,...

¿Es posible pensar en una pedagogía melancólica?
- Contreras Salinas, Sylvia; Ramírez Pavelic, Mónica
This article attempts to express an analogical relationship between melancholy and pedagogy. For this purpose, two ideas are presented, the first, that pedagogy, like melancholy, is the result of a loss that is not mourned, observing in it the affliction caused by the inability to reign in everyday occu-rrences in education; the second proposes to think of it as the effect of a me-lancholic identification triggered by the disenchantment of a human becoming finite, vulnerable and contingent, questioned by transcendence. The reflection finishes with some tangible traces of melancholic pedagogy.

Intercultural Communication Studies XVI: 2 2007 Rufer Monuments, Museums and the Re-articulation of Nation: Pedagogies, Performances and Subaltern Apprehensions of Memory
- Mario Rufer; El Colegio De México
This article discusses the projections of the politics of memory in two post-colonial locations as Argentina and South Africa, specially taking the Museum of Memory (former ESMA) in Argentina, the Voortrekker Monument in South Africa, and two recent state ceremonies dealing with memory in these two countries. There are salient studies on how monuments and memorials were linked directly to the “commemoration ” of national events, to fix a precise referent on the triad nation/origin/destiny. In our past century, all over the world we have had traumatic events that shocked the proper definitions of communities and social bodies. In that...

An Assessment of ESL Writing Placement Assessment
- Deborah Crusan
What are the best assessment practices for ESL and international students who must be placed into first-year composition courses at both two- and four-year institutions in the United States? In this article, I examine this issue in three ways. First, I enumerate the stances in the literature; following that I submit results of preliminary research which ques-tions modes of writing assessment and their relationship to final grades in composition classes. Finally, I present results of an internet search of one set of prominent American institutions ’ placement practices. From this data, it might be inferred that we use multi-ple instruments...
to become teachers face a particular challenge: How do we “deschool ” longstanding traditions of symbolic violence in education and the scars they have left on students and communities of color? Without directly confronting these legacies, teacher education programs risk graduating students who will perpetuate deficit thinking about children and continue harmful practices in their own teaching. In such conditions, the act of teaching and the practice of teacher education can be conceived as forms of healing (Diaz & Flores, 2001; Flores, 2005; Soto, 2007) aimed at restoring full possibilities to groups long denied them. This paper describes healing pedagogies...
brave new world: learning in a Web 2.0 millennium
- Cameron Barnes; Belinda Tynan
This paper looks at the implications of Web 2.0 technologies for university teaching and learning. The latest generation of undergraduates already live in a Web 2.0 world. They have new service expectations and are increasingly dissatisfied with teacher-centred pedagogies. To attract and retain these students, universities will need to rethink their operations. New social technologies mean that universities have the chance to create a new generation of student-centred learning environments, to realize the idea of a University 2.0. The following discussion draws upon a fictional character in order to capture the possible futures of such a brave new world.
