Alien Ink Graphic Novel

Alien Ink is the first in a series of online graphic novels designed to tackle everyday teen issues, and provides a great resource of PSHE/ citizenship and media studies teachers keystage 3, 4 and higher. It is based around the lives of Trinity and Ryder, who curiously arrive in Camden at the same time as UFO sightings on Primrose Hill, and subsequently open a tattoo parlour that becomes a hang-out for local teens. See more at: http://www.alienink.co.uk Alien Ink raises a series of teen pressures, including relationship issues, sexual health and drug use, through the popular and accessible medium of graphic novels. Readers can interact with the comic via Facebook, MySpace, quiz apps, YouTube and the Pressure blog, and are encouraged to get involved in the Alien Ink world, discussing the issues raised or by submitting examples of their own creativity, be it artwork, graphic design, writing, poetry, or even their own tattoo design. Alien Ink will also be available to view on Facebook and, in a partially animated format, on YouTube. The comics are a great way to reach teens with stories that matter and to point them to information that will genuinely help. New chapters appear every week, with all chapters eventually available in a hardback in autumn 2010.

Generally, when you talk about cultural studies as a subject at university it is not so much about another culture, but it has more to do with a particular way of looking at the world in which people live, and how and why people think, produce and do the things they think, produce and do. This self-study pack offers an introduction to cultural studies, using representations of Amsterdam as an illustration. The material assumes no knowledge of Dutch.

Candomblé ?! Ah conheço

This podcast in Portuguese was created by Emilia Kroprowska, a student of Spanish and Latin American Studies at the School of Languages and Area Studies, University of Portsmouth, as a part of a research project entitled ‘The Role of Student Audio Casting and Production in the Language Learning Curriculum’. The podcast was created using Audacity recording software and enhanced with free images using Windows Movie Maker. The recording is based on the student’s own original research carried out in the year 2007 - 2008. This podcast is a description of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé by a filh-do-santo, or initiate, Mônica Baptista Costa. She speaks about the origin of the religion, in Africa approximately 5,000 years ago. She also explains why Candomblé is fundamentally a syncretic religion, and the difference between Candomblé, Umbanda and other religions in Brazil. The podcast can be used as a learning resource in several different ways: as a focus for discussion, aural comprehension or as a base for further research by students in the field of Lusophone, Brazilian and Latin American studies. A transcript of the podcast is also included.

Collaborative Online Assignments for Final Year Module on Literature

This is an alternative untested methodological proposal for a Literature Module that was taught for several years at the University of Leeds following the traditional lecture-seminar-essay methodology. This alternative methodology embeds very prominently team work, organisational skills, public communication skills and learners' initiative and leadership, whilst reinforcing classic academic skills such as critical thinking by making content more attractive as a result of the various ways in which social engagement occurs. There are almost no limitations to the successful introduction of any kind of e-learning tools such as discussion boards, wikis and podcasts in any literature module that follows socio-constructive approaches. Thanks to my colleague Dr David Frier, who used to teach the module "Innovation and Experimentation in Portuguese 20th Century Literature", for his help. For information and reflections on this methodology, please see A.

Conflicts in France: Marianne in XXI century France

Eugène Delacroix’ painting ‘Le 28 juillet 1830: la liberté guidant le peuple’ (1831) was not welcomed by the critics in 1831, but has become since an icone of French republican identity. This resource provides links to two websites which contextualise and critically analyse the ambiguous and contested message of Delacroix’ s painting. Since then, the central character of the painting has been used, reused and transformed a countless number of time. At the start of the XXI century , its remains an ubiquitous icone, but its meaning may have changed. Undergraduate students may want to compare Delacroix’ painting with the poster produced by the French Communist Party in September 2009 for its annual conference/ celebration (La Fête de l’Humanité). The comparison may also include the flyer produced by Solidaires (a cartel of unions on the left of the left) for the 26 January 2009 demonstration against the reforms initiated by President Sarkozy. Students may want to discuss whether and how different re-workings of ‘Marianne’ have altered its meaning. Earlier representations are also included. A short indicative bibliography is included, stressing the significance of Maurice Agulhon's work on the subject. In his early work, Agulhon shows that there are two female symbols: 'Marianne', the earthy, loose-haired, threatening radical, with her Phrygian hat, sculpted by Francois Rude (1784-1855)on the Arc de Triomphe and a more stately, serene Goddess of Liberty with her start-girt crown, representing the Republique conservatrice. Finally further historical contextualisation, archival resources and interviews with experts can be accessed through the website 'France 1815 to 2003'.

Contextualising and introducing an oral history interview: OpenLIVES Autonomous Learning Activity

This is the advanced draft of a new autonomous learning activity presented as part of the OpenLIVES JISC-funded project. It will be used in the 23rd of may 2012 HEA OpenLIVES workshop at the University of Southampton. The activity can be repurposed and modified according to your students' needs. It can work well for undergraduate students of History, Modern Languages and Cultures or Social Sciences. The link to the audio clip has not been included in the sheet, as it is up to the tutor to decide which audio clip interview students will work on. This activity is meant to be used for audio cilips of the OpenLIVES collection, but can also be used with any other oral history podcasts. One of the main feature of the activity is that it introduces students to audience differentiation and student cultural production. The other key feature is that the activity raises awareness on key life skills. That way the activity can provide students with a research-based non-academic experience that connects them to the world of work and life in general.

Documental - Expectativas y Realidad: La inmigración económica española

El documental “Expectativas vs. Realidad: La inmigración económica española”, en resumen, presenta un análisis de la inmigración a Inglaterra causada por la crisis económica española investigando y reflexionando sobre las expectativas y realidades del resultado de esas decisiones. El documental usa entrevistas hechas como parte del proyecto OpenLIVES en HUMBOX y está divido en tres partes. La primera parte introduce el tema de la crisis económica española y la precariedad que ha invadido la Península Ibérica hace casi 10 años. La segunda parte demuestra las expectativas y percepciones que han conducido a los inmigrantes a trasladarse a Inglaterra comparándolas con las realidades. El documental intenta dar voz a personas que se han encontrado con la obligación de inmigrar a otro país en busca de mejores perspectivas y compartir sus experiencias para que se pueda reflexionar sobre el asunto. La última sección concluye el documental y examina los planes futuros de algunos entrevistados. El documental fue producido como parte de la asignatura "Discovering Spanish Voices Abroad in a Digital World (OpenLIVES)", de la Universidad de Leeds.

Employability and Life-long Learning Skills in Modern Languages and Cultures, History and Politics

This is a collection of subject-focused learning activities and pedagogical proposals in which a wide range of life-long learning and employable skills are fostered. These activities are intended to promote deep learning by engaging students with academic content in a socially and personally relevant way, beyond the traditional one-way “audienceless” communication channel of "the essay". The activities also connect with the idea of "Students as Producers" of knowledge, which is now being put into practice by a ground-breaking project led by the University of Lincoln. There is also a connection with the project OpenLIVES, led by the University of Southampton (University of Leeds and University of Portsmouth also participate) in which Antonio is involved. One of the Aims of OpenLIVES is to implement a methodology that places students as knowledge producers through the creation and dissemination of their own OERs (Open Educational Resources), which are produced as part of their course, in the HumBox. These activities have been developed as online role plays but are perfectly feasible without online discussion boards or with different degrees of online work.

España: percepciones desde el extranjero

En este documental se utilizan extractos de entrevistas con Javier Zaragoza y Lara Gállego, dos emigrados que viven en Leeds en el norte de Inglaterra, para reflexionar sobre cómo los entrevistados se relacionan con sus respectivos lugares de origen. Con este propósito, se examinan los motivos por los cuales los emigrantes dejaron estos lugares, el apego que sienten por sus comunidades de origen mientras se encuentran fuera, las opiniones de sus amigos y sus familias, y finalmente, si tienen planes de regresar. Es un documental de reflexión con un toque literario. El documental fue producido como parte de la asignatura "Discovering Spanish Voices Abroad in a Digital World (OpenLIVES)", de la Universidad de Leeds.

Excel spreadsheet to help with statistics involving pre-decimal UK currency.

Until 1971 the UK used pounds (£), shillings (s) and pence (d). There were 12 pence in shilling. 20 shillings in a pound 240 pence in a pound. More about decimalisation can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_Day If basic arithmetic wasn’t enough of a problem, statistics must have been a nightmare. This excel spreadsheet enables the input of up to 300 prices in pounds, shillings and pence and calculates: The Total sum Mean average Standard Deviation Maximum Minimum Upper quartile Lower Quartile Median It also converts all the pounds, shillings and pence data into (today’s) decimal currency. This makes pre-1971 and post-1971 comparisons possible. (Full details of the mathematics behind this are in the Wikipedia article cited above). The excel side of things is a complicated and probably far more complex than it needs to be. Any improvements welcome.

Exú - Orixá do Candomblé

This podcast in Portuguese was created by Emilia Kropowska, a student of Spanish and Latin American Studies at the School of Languages and Area Studies, University of Portsmouth, as a part of a research project entitled 'The Role of Student Audio Casting and Production in the Language Learning Curriculum'. The podcast was created using Audacity recording software and enhanced with free images using Windows Movie Maker. The recording is based on the student's own original research carried out in the year 2007-2008. This podcast explains the role of orixás in the Afro-Brazilian religion of Candomblé, which was brought to Brazil during the era of slavery, and which has since become one of Brazil's major religions. Orixás play a pivotal role in Candomblé ritual and belief; they are intermediaries between human beings, nature and the divine. The podcast focuses particularly on the role of the orixá Exu, and what he represents within the belief system of Candomblé. The podcast can be used as a learning resource in several different ways: as a focus for discussion, aural comprehension or as a base for further research by students in the field of Lusophone, Brazilian and Latin American studies. A transcription of the podcast is provided.

Feedback shortcuts for assessing writing

Here is a set of comments I use frequently when giving feedback to students. It's designed for EFL writers with an English level equivalent to IELTS 5.5 or above. The links are to sites I regularly use in teaching, and the recommended books are available in my university library. Feel free to adapt according to your students' level, needs and available resources. There are different ways you could exploit the comments set: 1. (on paper) as a cover sheet when returning written work. 2. (in Microsoft Word) as the basis for creating AutoText entries, which you can quickly insert into Comments when reviewing electronic copies of your students' work. 3. (in Turnitin) as the basis for creating a QuickMark set in GradeMark. I've appended the .qms file so if you're already a Grademark user you can download then import it into your own Quickmark library and modify as appropriate.

Filling the gaps

The premise of the activities in this resource (appropriate for an individual or a group) is that the time that students spend between lectures, seminars and workshops is as important as the time they spend in class sessions because this is how and where students develop the critical ability to work independently. However, students, especially first-years, need to be taught these skills and these activities provide guidance on how you might go about that work with methods that that push beyond the well-worn phrase, ‘read the book and think about it.’

Freemasonry Lecture: 'When Armenians built Auschwitz: notes on late Ottoman Freemasonry and genocide' by Ugur Ungor

The triumph of nationalism destroyed the multi-ethnic Ottoman political and social order and replaced it by nation-states. Many explanations attributed the mass violence to a devious conspiracy between (crypto-) Jews, Freemasons, and Turks against Greeks and Armenians. Ugur Ungor argues that these pseudo-explanations are a product of two processes: one of competition between victim groups, and another of intellectual secularization. Lecture given 13 November 2008 for the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism.

Galdós student films University of Sheffield

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.

Georgian Britain podcasts

We look back now to the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries as the time of origins of modernity -commercial and industrial revolutions, demographic transition, imperial expansion, the rise of working-class and artisan radicalism, and the emergence of the bourgeois public sphere. But this time of origins and transitions was also cast in contradictions and conflict: riches and poverty; markets and slaves; gender divisions; private life and public virtue; consumers and criminals; enlightened rationalism and religious enthusiasm, oligarchic government and popular radicalism. The eighteenth century was the great time of possibilities, opportunities, new directions and identities, but no certainties of what these were to be. These podcasts provide an overview of these and other themes of a society creating itself anew.
