Religion-Based Claims For Impinging On Queer Citizenship, Donn Short, Bruce MacDougall 2009 University of British Columbia

Religion-Based Claims For Impinging On Queer Citizenship, Donn Short, Bruce Macdougall

Bruce MacDougall

Competing claims for legal protection based on religion and on sexual orientation have arisen fairly frequently in Canada in the past decade or so. The authors place such competitions into five categories based on the nature of who is making the claim and who is impacted, the site of the competition, and the extent to which the usual legal and constitutional norms applicable are affected. Three of the five categories identified involve a claim that a religion operate in some form in the public area so as to impinge on the usual protection of equality on the basis of sexual ...


Producción Intelectual En Pequeñas Universidades Privadas Latinoamericanas: Una Situación Paradójica, Gus Gregorutti 2009 Andrews University

Producción Intelectual En Pequeñas Universidades Privadas Latinoamericanas: Una Situación Paradójica, Gus Gregorutti

Gus Gregorutti

Durante las tres últimas décadas, Latinoamérica ha experimentado un incremento
vertiginoso de la educación privada superior, incluyendo a las universidades.
Este fenómeno ha estimulado la creación de diversas agencias
acreditadoras que buscan certificar la calidad de los programas de esas universidades.
Se exige, entre otras dimensiones, que haya producción de conocimiento
como una forma de originar cambios socioeconómicos. Así las universidades
se ven impulsadas a producir investigación. Este estudio busca saber
cómo los docentes de ocho pequeñas universidades privadas latinoamericanas
perciben el proceso de producción intelectual en el contexto de sus tareas profesionales.
Con una metodología mixta, se encontró ...


La Acreditación De Los Posgrados En Instituciones Privadas De Educación Superior Mexicanas, Gus Gregorutti 2009 Andrews University

La Acreditación De Los Posgrados En Instituciones Privadas De Educación Superior Mexicanas, Gus Gregorutti

Gus Gregorutti

The exponential growth of private higher education in Mexico,
especially over the last 30 years, has also raised questions about
the level of quality offered by some of the professional oriented
graduate programs. In order to know how these universities handle
quality, this paper collected opinions from four academic administrators
interviewed in three private universities in the State of
Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Their points of view expressed concerns
around the parameters used by Conacyt to assess quality among
professional oriented graduate programs. The major areas of disagreement
were related to assumptions dealing with the production
of knowledge and the requirements ...

Reductionism, Activity Theory, And L2 Motivation Research: Toward New Concepts And Definitions, Tae-Young Kim Dr. 2009 Chung-Ang University

Reductionism, Activity Theory, And L2 Motivation Research: Toward New Concepts And Definitions, Tae-Young Kim Dr.

Dr. Tae-Young Kim (김태영, 金兌英)

This paper focuses on the theoretical foundation of second language (L2) learning motivation from a Vygotskian Activity Theory (AT) perspective. In general, previous L2 motivation research adopted either psychometric or sociological approaches, which have not fully considered the mediational process between individual learners and their meaningful environments. Since L2 motivation reflects learners’ histories and sociocultural contexts, it is crucial to approach this from an AT perspective. After critiquing current L2 motivation research using Valsiner and van der Veer’s (2000) argument of downward/upward reductionism, I introduce the notion of L2 motivation as social mediation and discuss the applicability of ...

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge 2009 Selected Works

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

A controlled language is a natural language, as opposed to an artificial or constructed language. Natural languages such as English or German are languages that are used by humans for general communication. A controlled language differs from the general language in two significant ways: 1. The grammar rules of a controlled language are typically more restrictive than those of the general language. 2. The vocabulary of a controlled language typically contains only a fraction of the words that are permissible in the general language.


I’Ll Re-Write Yours If You Re-Write Mine: Pure Peer Revision Using Sequential Collaborative Writing, Robert A. Eckhart 2009 Ohio State University - Main Campus

I’Ll Re-Write Yours If You Re-Write Mine: Pure Peer Revision Using Sequential Collaborative Writing, Robert A. Eckhart

Robert A. Eckhart

Rewriting another person’s work is a novel way to approach the writing process. Of my two classes of students (n=38), only 11 of them claimed to be good at revision before the term started. As a result of asking one student to actually write a revised final draft of a classmate’s paper, 35 indicated they understood the importance of revision more. And ultimately, 36 of them reported they were better at revising their own final research paper as a result of revising other people’s papers earlier in the quarter.


Digital Technology In- And Out-Of-School : A Comparative Study Of The Nature And Levels Of Student Use And Engagement, Anne-Marie Chase 2009 University of Western Australia

Digital Technology In- And Out-Of-School : A Comparative Study Of The Nature And Levels Of Student Use And Engagement, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

Today information technologies are everywhere. Digital technologies are seen globally as essential to a country’s economic success. A major consequence of the advent of the technological age is that young people today live in a „techno culture‟. Some argue, however, that since education moves slowly, the adoption of technology in schools has not been at the same progressive rate as in the wider community. They go further and hold that there is a difference between the technology experience of young people in school and in their everyday lives. The focus of the study, of which this provides a brief ...


What Do Students Feel In School And How Do We Measure Them?: Examining The Psychometric Properties Of The S-Aeq-F., Ronnel B. King 2009 The University of Hong Kong

What Do Students Feel In School And How Do We Measure Them?: Examining The Psychometric Properties Of The S-Aeq-F., Ronnel B. King

Ronnel B King

The objective of this study was to examine the reliability and construct validity of the Short Version of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire for Filipinos (S-AEQ-F) which is an adaptation of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire (AEQ; Pekrun, Goetz, & Perry, 2005). The S-AEQ-F measures eight discrete academic emotions in the learning context: anger, anxiety, boredom, enjoyment, hope, hopelessness, pride, and shame. Filipino high school students (N = 1,121) completed the S-AEQ-F. Responses to this questionnaire were shown to have good internal structure and support was affirmed for its construct validity in terms of its factorial structure and correlations with other educational outcomes ...


A Review Study On Spiritual Intelligence, Adolescence And Spiritual Intelligence, Factors That May Contribute To Individual Differences In Spiritual Intelligence And The Related Theories, Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D. 2009 Universiti Putra Malaysia

A Review Study On Spiritual Intelligence, Adolescence And Spiritual Intelligence, Factors That May Contribute To Individual Differences In Spiritual Intelligence And The Related Theories, Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D.

Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D.

This study reviewed the articles about adolescence, its relation to spiritual intelligence and the related theories. The adolescence period is the best time to develop positive emotions and training skills, because adolescents are seeking to find their identity and their future personality at this period. Approach: Spiritual intelligence had a significant influence on the quality of life and it goes without saying that adolescence is a sensitive period which requires specific training to make a brighter future and be exposed to the difficulties. Spirituality can be viewed as a form of intelligence because it predicts functioning and adaptation and offers ...


Problematic Conceptualizations: Allies In Teacher Education For Social Justice, Vonzell Agosto 2009 University of South Florida

Problematic Conceptualizations: Allies In Teacher Education For Social Justice, Vonzell Agosto

Vonzell Agosto

This review of the literature on the concept ally and ally identity development was inspired by a qualitative study exploring the identities and social justice values of prospective teachers of color. Although the participants in the original study never used the term ally, their narratives inspired me to characterize them as allies in the struggle for social justice education. However, a review of the literature on allies, as analyzed through critical race theory and critical discourse analysis, revealed emerging conceptualizations of ally as incongruent with minority identities as they position people of color at the periphery of this social justice ...


The Sporting Image What If? An Anthology Of Creative Writing Based Upon Real Events In Sport, Clive A. Palmer 2009 University of Central Lancashire

The Sporting Image What If? An Anthology Of Creative Writing Based Upon Real Events In Sport, Clive A. Palmer

Clive Palmer

The focus of this book is to take a sideways look at iconic features in sport; characters, events, artefacts and general goings-on. By considering the notion of ‘What If?’ reality has been re-interpreted and presented differently through a medium of creative writing. Each chapter has some underpinning research which is intended to illustrate where the creative story departs from reality. The research aspect is also to give a sense of plausibility for a range of different outcomes which are ostensibly possible for some famous people in sport. Through the conflict created for these characters we find many ‘good apples’ in ...

Das Virtudes Cívicas Clássicas Às Virtudes Pós-Modernas - Dos Tempos E Dos Modos, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Das Virtudes Cívicas Clássicas Às Virtudes Pós-Modernas - Dos Tempos E Dos Modos, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Ao mesmo tempo que importa recuperar, na nossa memória e na educação, os grandes exemplos dos virtuosos heróis e sábios da Antiguidade Clássica, que a deseducação tem olvidado, não se pode esquecer que o mundo pós-moderno em que vivemos requer de nós aptidões, virtualidades, posicionamentos diferentes. Não para caminharmos no sentido de todos os demais, mas para respondermos com valor aos reptos do presente. Este artigo procura conciliar, pois, o legado clássico das virtudes cívicas, com algumas propostas inspiradas em autores recentes (como Italo Calvino e Alain Finkielkraut) para o séc. XXI


Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Não é por acaso que tantas utopias literárias se localizam ficcionalmente em ilhas. Não é por acaso que as utopias são uma espécie de descrição constitucional sem as amarras dos artigos de um código de direito político. Não é por acaso que as ilhas, parecendo uma prisão, rodeada de mar por todos os lados, são afinal sonhos de onde se pode sair, voando. Não só em sonhos oníricos, mas em sonhos que se podem tornar realidade. Este artigo desenvolve as ligações entre os aspectos literários, políticos e jurídicos das utopias na sua dimensão insular.


Virtude Da Constituição E Virtudes Republicanas, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Virtude Da Constituição E Virtudes Republicanas, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

A virtude da Constituição é a sua essência e função. E a Constituição tem sempre uma virtude liberal-democrática, apesar de tudo. Conra tudo e contra todos, apesar por vezes mesmo de si própria e das intenções dos seus autores... Depois do “retorno” dos valores à política e ao Direito Constitucional, é a vez da volta das virtudes à discussão, designadamente pela via da ética constitucional ou republicana, de novo na ordem do dia em muitos países. Quais serão, então, as principais virtudes juspolíticas, constitucionais, ou republicanas? O presente artigo intenta também uma proposta de virtudes republicanas concretas para o nosso ...
