peer-reviewed; This study, set in the field of English for academic legal purposes (EALP), sets out to first identify a semi-technical word list in post-graduate academic legal written texts and then to examine the rhetorical functions such a wordlist enables as an indicator of the epistemology of the disciplinary community. This field was chosen because access to student assignments is hindered by the fact that they are not in published form; yet numerically, they most likely outnumber published academic material. In a post-graduate context, where in the field of law there is an influx of non-native speakers who have had their legal education in systems other than the English language dominated Common Law, the need to quickly understand how information is to be organised and communicated in student academic texts is a very pressing one indeed. The thesis adopts a corpus linguistics approach to the identification of semi-technical language. The corpus is comprised of texts written by post-graduate students studying Masters in Law (LLM) courses at three universities in Ireland; the corpus is just under one million words. The approach relies on quantitative methods to arrive at a vocabulary list and beyond the initial setting of parameters for data organisation and filtering...

peer-reviewed;                            On 23rd April 2009 a new reviewed journal entitled Socheolas: Limerick Student Journal of Sociology was officially launched. The journal, now in its 3rd issue, is produced, edited and managed by a small team from within the Department of Sociology at the University of Limerick. The key purpose of the journal is to showcase the high-quality academic work undertaken by its undergraduate and postgraduate students. The journal offers undergraduate and first-year postgraduate students in the Department of Sociology an opportunity to improve their writing and sociological skills, both as authors and as readers of sociological research. It allows students to have first-hand experience of the process of editing and rewriting for publication in a supportive and constructive environment, while giving them the opportunity to see their work published online.   This paper will document the establishment of Socheolas from its origin as part of a drive to increase the profile of sociology among both the faculty and student body in UL, to its position as a central element in the active teaching and learning culture of the department. Critical reflections of the editorial team are presented...

This dissertation reports on a study of developments in key aspects of the English academic writing of Thai students undertaking a writing course in a Thai university in 2006. The course employed the genre-based pedagogy associated with the so-called Sydney genre school (see, for example, Martin and Rose 2008) and focussed on two of the argumentative genres identified in the Sydney genre-school literature, the Exposition and the Discussion. The course was delivered to 72 English majors in two classes over a period of twelve weeks. The writing of six students was selected for close linguistic analysis, with the data set consisting of the three essays which each student produced at the beginning, middle and end of the course (18 texts in total). The broad objective of the research was to investigate whether any developments could be observed in the student’s writing, as a group, which could be interpreted as positive developments in their academic literacy and which might plausibly be seen as at least in part the result of the teaching and learning opportunities made available by the course. It was found that a majority of the students produced essays at the commencement of the course, before any teaching, which (1) did not match any of the genre structural prototypes outlined in the literature...

Thesis (PhD) - Indiana University, School of Education, 2006; Two major obstacles to using PBL methods in K-12 classrooms are the time it takes to design the rich learning environment and the time required for students to interact at their own pace with ill-structured problems. The focus of this study was to determine whether game-design design principles can be used to both compliment a digital PBL environment and improve student learning. Further, this study sought to determine whether such a design could allow teachers to act as a challenger of poorly developed knowledge constructs instead of as a font of directional and procedural knowledge for students To answer these questions a digital learning environment was designed that used embedded scaffolds, nested goals, clue trails, narrative context, and explicit rules to improve student writing. This unit was part of a larger multi-user virtual environment, but was designed to be a self-contained unit that leveraged advanced technologies to establish an immersive experience for learning writing skills. The unit was designed to be two-times per week for four weeks in total length which included student training on the active role of a reporter who investigated mysteries taking place in a virtual town. The learner then composed feature stories relating their understanding of the mystery. A comparison class was recruited and the teacher was observed teaching the same content and skill standards but through more didactic methods of instruction. The results of this study showed that the treatment condition had decreases in teacher time spent answering procedural and directional questions...

Black and white photograph of Rice University Owls track and field athlete Walter E. (Ed) Red, class of 1965, headlining his achievement into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame.; He is now a distinguished academician who teaches engineering, but as a Rice undergrad student husky Ed Red brought international attention to Rice University by his exploits as one of the world's best performers in throwing the javelin. The peak of his career came in the fall of 1964 when he placed 11th in the Olympic Games, held that year in Tokyo, for the USA. That was an unusually high finish for an American, for Europeans rather dominate that event at the world level of competition. Strong arm Ed Red came to Rice from his native state of Louisiana to become one of the finest student-athletes to represent the Owls in school history. Freshmen were not eligible for varisty competition in '61 or Ed would have been a four-time Southwest Conference champion, but he won the SWC title and set records in 1962, 1963 and 1964. In fact, his success began a string of javelin title for the Owls of that era under Emmett Brunson and aide Audio Erfurth. Rice men won the javelin crown for the SWC 10 of 12 times, starting with Red's three in a row. His career best as an Owl was 263 feet in summer competition at an AAU meet...

Flier for the first Sid Richardson College Oktoberfest, Rice University. The flier is hand-drawn, and the 3 holes along the right margin indicate the sheet of paper was torn from a folder. The flier reads "The Oktoberfest Is Coming Friday, 15 October, Richardson College, All The Beer You can drink. Bavarian Beer Gardens Atmosphere, 15 Kegs - 7 Tappers - No Waiting, Basement: Winchester Band, Commons: Tables Laden With Authentic German Soul-Food; Beer. Served by Pretty Fraulein, 8PM-2AM, $1.50/Student." The writing is over a line drawing of a man’s head in profile, wearing a WWI-era Imperial German spiked helmet, with an Imperial Austrian double-headed eagle appearing at the very bottom of the page. Original resource is a black and white flier.; The first Oktoberfest coincided with the Sid Richardson college's dedication. Oktoberfest was replaced by the Early 80s party as one of Sid Richardson's public parties in 1997.

peer-reviewed; In contrast to other countries, particularly the USA, systematic writing support for students at Irish higher education institutions has until recently been restricted to ad hoc interventions. However, there is now a growing awareness of the need to adopt a systematic approach to writing support for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and an increasing recognition of the value of such support in fostering metacognitive awareness among writers so that they not only produce better written texts but develop a greater consciousness of the processes leading to them (North 1984). The main aim of this paper is to report on a study that inquires into student and staff attitudes towards academic writing and into the specific writing-related needs of students at one Irish university, the University of Limerick (UL), in order to justify what we feel to be an appropriate response to a multiplicity of writing-related needs in the Irish context. The paper reports on the two main phases of the project, namely the research phase that would inform the response adopted by the University (2005-2007) and the action-response phase which outlines the course of action taken by the University to respond to the writing needs of its students (2007 to date)...

Based on the critical research paradigm and using a mix of methodologies, this study examined student perceptions of the process approach used to teach writing. A class of 19 ESL students in an academic writing class at a small university paliicipated in the study. As collaborators in the study, they assessed their personality types using the PET Type Check (Crantoll & Knoop, 1995) and tlleir learning styles using Kolb'sLearning Styles Inventory (1976). Interviews, classroom observations, and journals provided a data base for case studies llilQ teacher reflection. Results indicated that students perceived the prewriting step of brainstonning and peer review as most useful. Student perceptions of the tasks and course and implications for theory and practice are examined.

This mixed methods study examined assistive technology and its role in the world early writers. It investigated the function of word predictive and speech synthesis software in the early primary, mainstream classroom. A technology based writing intervention with 27 first grade students was carried out to assess how the use of Co:writer software affected the content of student writing. It looked at how the length of the writing sample, word use and sentence complexity was affected by this writing intervention. It also investigated how students interacted with the software and how they felt about its effect on their writing. The hypothesis was that the use of assistive technology while writing would aid students in creating more sophisticated, content rich writing samples and give students a positive feeling about their writing. Using a pre-post design, participant writing samples were analyzed for length, word use and sentence complexity. Targeted interviews and field notes revealed how students interacted with the software and how they felt about its effect on their writing. The data shows that within this study participants improved the length, and sentence complexity in their written samples. Qualitatively participants reported that the software helped to improve their vocabulary...

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) are marked by the amount of time that has elapsed between the fall of Democratic Kampuchea in 1979 and the creation of the tribunal. Does this passage of time matter? There are obvious practical reasons why it does: suspects die, witnesses die or have their memories fade, documents are lost and found, theories of accountability gain or lose currency within the broader public. And yet, formally, the mechanisms of criminal justice continue to operate despite the intervening years. The narrow jurisdiction limits the court’s attention to the events of 1975–1979, and potential evidence must meet legal requirements of relevance in order to be admissible. Beyond the immediate questions of the quality of the evidence, does history matter? Should it? One answer is that this history is largely irrelevant to the legal questions at issue. In this view, the events of Democratic Kampuchea from 1975–1979 can be tried without reference to the events of the intervening years. The facts relating to the crimes stand on their own, and the legal theories relate strictly to those facts and events. This approach would find nothing in particular to distinguish the operations of the ECCC from those of any other tribunal...

I provide an overview of approaches to writing referred to as 'academic literacies' building on broader traditions, such as New Literacy Studies, and I draw out the relevance of such traditions for the ways in which lecturers provide support to their students with regard to the writing requirements of the University. I offer three case studies of the application of academic literacies approaches to programmes concerned with supporting student writing, in the UK and the USA. I briefly conclude by asking how far these accounts and this work can be seen to bring together many of the themes raised at SIGET conferences - including academic literacies and its relation to genre theories - and express the hope that it opens up trajectories for future research and collaboration of the kind they were founded to develop.

This article explores five students??? perceptions of their writing experiences at an English-medium post-graduate university in a non-English speaking country as compared to writing in their home country universities in their native languages. Three types of differences are found to be relevant: language and rhetorical differences, disciplinary differences, and differences in educational systems (such as the number of assignments required, the focus of writing instruction, and feedback practices). The analysis shows that some of these differences are unexpected for the students and require a period of adjustment during their transition to an English-medium university. The article concludes by discussing the implications of the findings for English for academic purposes.

non-peer-reviewed; This issue of the Journal of Academic Writing contains selected, peer-reviewed articles based on presentations given at the EATAW 2011 conference. The conference, held on 29th June 2011 at the University of Limerick, Ireland, and hosted by the Regional Writing Centre at the University of Limerick, took as its focus the role of the student experience in shaping academic writing development in higher education. The EATAW 2011 conference brought together 280 participants to contribute to discussion of how to enhance the student experience through writing development. Conference delegates included writing teachers and researchers, writing centre and writing programme administrators, staff developers, and professional and peer writing tutors. A focal point of the conference was a keynote panel featuring peer tutors in writing from three universities. A reflection on this keynote, along with narratives written by peer writing tutors working in universities in Europe, is included in the new ‘Dialogues’ section of this issue.

non-peer-reviewed; Students often struggle with writing as they are unaware of the process of writing and of strategies and skills to help them write well. They often focus on the product of writing rather than engaging with the process of writing. However, it is in the process of writing, and in the discovery of that process, that learning happens (Murray 1973, Emig 1977, Berlin 1982). It is thought that the inductive, non-intrusive model of student peer-tutoring practiced at the Regional Writing Centre at the University of Limerick, based on the model proposed by Ryan and Zimmerelli (2006), encourages students to engage with their own writing and learning in a non-threatening, approachable and positive manner. However, amidst the rising debate on what constitutes student engagement with learning, it is timely to investigate whether, and to what extent, the model used to train peer tutors in the Regional Writing Centre constitutes real and meaningful student engagement for those who peer tutor in the Centre and for the students they tutor.

peer-reviewed; Despite some of the critiques of the conventions of academic writing that have been outlined above, it is also clear that nurturing good writing skills among students enhances their ability to think in complex and coherent ways (Bean, 2001). Writing is not only valued in academia; good writing skil ls are important for the enhancement of our students' professional lives. Despite its centrality in academia and professional life, it is often left up to the students themselves to become good at writing. While there have been notable changes in the UK and Ireland in providing dedicated support for student writing, many higher education contexts rely on students being acculturated or somehow induced into academic writing simply by being immersed into university life (Lea and Street, 1998).
