Research reported and discussed in this paper was developed within a wider three-year international research project (2011-2014) involving 36 researchers from four Portuguese and three Brazilian universities (The project has been financed by National Funds through Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) -Foundation for Science and Technology – Project PTDC/CPE-CED/114318/2009.) In the last decades, students have been entering higher education as never before and the European universities have been faced with all sorts of challenges (e.g., quality education for all, student mobility, a growing scarcity of resources). Traditional teaching and assessment practices, mostly based upon the so-called telling paradigm, still predominant in higher education, have been questioned and under pressure to change. Indeed, research have been pointing out that students learn better when they are engaged in the learning processes and when assessment for learning is integral to the organisation and development of teaching (e.g. Biggs, 2006; Black & Wiliam, 2006). As a result, a framework aiming at transforming and improving pedagogy and curricular practices in higher education was formally and politically put forward as a consequence of the so-called Bologna process. Since then...

The purpose of this research was to analyze how parent-child interactions differ in discourse structure, communicative function and linguistic behaviors between children who are at high-risk for developing a behavioral disorder such as ADHD, and those who are at high-risk for developing a behavioral disorder with a co-occurring language impairment. Participants consisted of 20 children ages three to five years old and their parents. A five-minute parent-child interaction was video recorded and analyzed using an adapted version of the “Coding parent/child interaction as a clinical outcome: a research note” designed by Law, Barnett, and Kot (1999). Results revealed slight differences in each communication parameter amongst the two groups, however, statistical results of parametric and non-parametric tests determined that there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups, with the exception of increased verbal initiations (p=.040) in children with no language impairment when compared to those with a language impairment as was expected.

Fusing horizons - a grammatical design approach for the arts and humanities: Using rules contingency and hermeneutics in design education

This article argues that grammatical thinking within a framework of phenomenological hermeneutics assists designing and may properly be used as a fundamental teaching approach for an interdisciplinary art and design studio. Furthermore, it argues that the theme of grammatical design awareness could be considered as a generic issue across all disciplines in the Arts and Humanities. It calls for a more explicit teaching of grammar, both in terms of understanding and application, and provides a case study to indicate how this might be achieved. It highlights the value of both schematic and formal systems when using notions of rules, grammar and contingency to assist and augment traditional pedagogical approaches used in design education. It recognizes the value of grammatical visual thinking and argues that an interdisciplinary `grammatical design studio' may provide a valuable foundation for the development of design thinking processes that offer transparency, consistency, creativity and reflectivity.; Dean Bruton; © 2007 SAGE Publications Copyright © 2007 by SAGE Publications

Introduction: "I hear a sound," said Rhoda, "cheep, chirp; cheep, chirp; going up and down" (9). Thus Virginia Woolf introduces Rhoda in her opening to The Waves. But almost immediately, this sound is transformed: " 'The birds sang in chorus first,' said Rhoda. 'Now the scullery door is unbarred. Off they fly. Off they fly like a fling of seed. But one sings by the bedroom window alone' " (10-11). While the birds were originally a unified, collective sound, "going up and down" as one, now they fly away as many, spreading like seeds that will eventually grow individually to create separate new lives. Rhoda implies that they sang as one only because they had no other choice - the door was barred, and they were jailed together. However, the single bird remaining by the window deep in song is a noteworthy figure. Like Rhoda, and human consciousness itself, it might be lonely or free, proudly individual or vulnerable in its solitude.; by Jocelyn Rodal.; Thesis (S.B. in Literature)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Humanities, 2006.; Includes bibliographical references (leaves 68-70).

Introduction: The infantrymen of the Great War experienced the unimaginable. Soldiers in the trenches internalized images of confusion and gore, and returned to a society unwilling and often unable to comprehend their sacrifices. For nearly 65,000 of these soldiers, their experiences on the front brought on hysteria, mental breakdown, muteness, paralysis, and other bizarre physical maladies (ER, 189). The medical description of the mental conditions that precipitated so many of these symptoms underwent a dramatic evolution as more and more cases were reported. These conditions were first collected under the terse assignation of "shell-shock," linking the range of maladies to the psychological influence of heavy artillery as well as referring tacitly to ontological theories of physical lesions in cerebral tissue. Such diagnostic projections were assisted by patients who, upon solicitation, readily supplied anecdotal evidence of mortar blasts. As the war progressed, however, the appearance of cases not directly linked to close-proximity explosions prompted the search for a non-physical term; "neuroses" was put into use, and an epistemological link to madness was established. Finally, in the search for a more scientific label, physicians decided upon "neurasthenia...

This is the final published version of the article. It was originally published in Cross Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review (Moazzin G., Cross Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review (No. 16, September 2015, ISSN: 2158-9674)). The final version is available at https://cross-currents.berkeley.edu/e-journal/issue-16/moazzin; This article uses the case of the Deutsch-Asiatische Bank and its liquidation during the First World War to examine the challenges faced by German businesses during the war in China and China?s involvement in Allied economic warfare. This case suggests the detrimental effect that political crises and global shifts of power had on foreign businesses in modern China?s globalized treaty port economy. It also reveals China?s role in the global economic warfare of the Allies, showing that China first resisted Allied demands for a full liquidation of the German bank but eventually acquiesced to Allied pressure and handed control over the liquidation to the Allies. As a consequence, China ended up violating the very international law it had put so much value on when entering the war.; The author acknowledges financial support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council of the United Kingdom and the German Academic Exchange Service.

Although increasing emphasis is placed on the provision of research training for doctoral students, much of the support currently available is generic in nature, rather than tailored to the student?s particular field(s) of study. In this paper, I briefly review UK graduate education for arts and humanities research students, and some of the ways in which the distinctive demands of their discipline(s) shape the research student experience and hence their development needs. I describe the design and delivery of a pilot programme of discipline-specific research skills development, co-ordinated by the Subject Centre for Philosophical and Religious Studies, which aims to address such needs; and I evaluate its success. I conclude with some recommendations for future practice; in particular, I argue that doctoral training provision is more effective when it involves a subject-specific approach in which practising academics from the discipline(s) play a significant role ? both in terms of fostering an improved level of student engagement with the programme, and of delivering training and development opportunities which are tailored to the student?s particular context and needs.

"Humanities in the Twenty-First Century: Beyond Utility and Markets." Eleonora Belfiore and Anna Upchurch. Palgrave Macmillan. July 2013. --- What is the value of the arts and humanities today? This question points to a long and extensively discussed dilemma. This collection of original essays aims to offer examples that show that, rather than relying on the narrowly utilitarian notion of ‘research impact’ that has developed within current educational policies and debates, it may be more appropriate to look at the ways in which arts and humanities research is already engaged in collaborative endeavours, both within academia and beyond, in order to address the big ethical, political, technological and environmental challenges of contemporary life.
