No open learning without open access: a portal for open access research into teaching modern languages

The effectiveness of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Mass Open Online Courses (MOOCs) can be seriously undermined by lack of open access to original academic research. Copyright restrictions and subscription fees mean that most research is completely unavailable to those who are not staff or students at a university, or who work in institutions or countries where financial resources are very limited. At best, those with limited access to original research are forced to rely on the summaries and interpretations of others. This presentation showcases YazikOpen.org.uk a portal for open access research into the teaching and learning of modern foreign languages. The portal catalogues language teaching research published in open access journals or on open websites. This research is available to anybody, anywhere in the world with access to the internet without viewing or subscription fees.open access logo Those teaching on courses relating to language teaching (e.g. TEFL, Applied Linguistics, Teaching Training etc.), whether face-to-face or online, can search YazikOpen to identify course readings which will be available to all students, irrespective of institution, geographical location or access to financial resources. Open access also means that original research is accessible to practitioners such as schoolteachers, Teachers of English as a Second/ Foreign Language, teachers at language clubs and teachers of languages in the community. Bringing down access barriers also means that practitioners and other interested parties can engage in debates and publish their own research with fewer disadvantages. The presentation will also explore the wider discussions currently taking place about open access from the ethical as well as the financial and organisational perspectives. Open access to research is also crucial in ensuring that MOOCs are genuinely open and inclusive and do not perpetrate the current privileges of students and staff in well-resourced institutions.

Galdos student film 06: Los secretos de Senén

At Level 3 (final year), in 2003 Rhian Davies embarked with Claire Allam (a Producer from the Learning and Teaching Services department of the University of Sheffield) upon the formidable challenge of getting students to select sequences from two of Galdós's works that exist in both novel and play form and turning them into films. Teaching Galdos's work with film is a fascinatingly stimulating experience and it is certainly something that the students enjoy. As well as gaining valuable employability skills (in problem solving, team building, project management etc.) through the filmmaking process, in producing their own film versions, students come to engage closely with the works and have a lot of fun in the process. This film is a chat show version of El Abuelo which involved a 3-camera/live TV style shoot.

Tristana worksheet (film/novel)

This worksheet is used before studying Bunuel's film. Students are asked to draw a picture of the relevant characters based on Galdos's description. The object of the exercise is to show the students how they make the character 'theirs' (e.g. some of their pictures will show a Tristana with long flowing hair, which contradicts Galdos's description) and how the film director will generally use the novel as a 'springboard' for his own personal interpretation of the work. As such, novel and film are independent works.
