La entonación en español para estudiantes de ELE (B2 CEFR)

This is a suite of resources that includes explanations, recordings, intonation graphs and exercises. It was produced by Mireia Bosch Font, during her Erasmus + placement at the University of Leeds, as part of her MA in Spanish and Catalan Teaching at the Universitat de Girona, in Spain, which is directed by Dr Beatriz Blecua Falgueras. Antonio Martínez-Arboleda supervised and edited this work, which is now being used with students of the University of Leeds (BAs in Spanish). The Powerpoint presentations can be set as autonomous work or serve as class presentations. Actividad 1 Powerpoint is more accessible than the Ejercicio de percepción, also in Powerpoint, which is an explanation of differences in intonations between two different versions of a conversation that, in writing, appears to be exactly the same. The Pdfs are more suitable for teachers, as they include recommendations on how to direct activities and background to the exercises. The recordings of the OpenLIVES interviews that can be found in HumBox as well as the programme PRAAT, that can be downloaded for free from a number of platforms, will be of use for teachers wanting to develop Activities 2 and 3 as well as any other new exercises.

Interview to Spanish Poets Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra

Interview in Spanish: Award-winning Spanish Poets Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra are interviewed at the University of Leeds by Dr Diana Cullell, Lecturer at the University of Liverpool (Iberian and Latin American Studies). During the interview Inma Pelegrín and Katy talk about the current state of poetic production in Spain, the connections with political changes in Spain, socially committed poetry, cultural policy, accessibility of poetry, meaning in poetry and language learning and poetry. They also talk about their own poetry and their influences. The interview took place on the 3 February 2015. Inma Pelegrín is the winner of the prestigious literary awards “Premio Hispanoamericano de Poesía Juan Ramón Jiménez 2012” and “Premio Internacional de Poesía Gerardo Diego 2007”. Inma's poetry is fresh and direct yet distinctively sublime. She is a poet of immense emotional intelligence and linguistic talent, as she can arouse the most nuanced feelings in the reader by using familiar and colloquial language, which she seamlessly transforms into poetic gold. Her latest work includes Universo improbable (2009) Trapos sucios (2008), Óxido (2008) and Cuestión de horas (2012) Katy Parra is a literary activist and poet who has published extensively since 1997. In 2008 she won the International Poetry Award dedicated to Miguel Hernández. Her poetry sits comfortably along those unique voices in Spanish poetry who have managed to put the most exquisite formal poetic demands at the service of clarity, subtle irony and unexpected eroticism. Katy is the author of Coma Idílico (2008), Por si los pájaros (2008) and La manzana o la vida (2013). Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra visited the University of Leeds to participate in the International Writers at Leeds event held on the 3rd February 2015 at Leeds Central Library. The event "Exploring the Feminine and the Divine" also featured poets Siobhan Mac Mahon and Hannah Stone, guitarist Sabrina Piggot and Antonio Martínez-Arboleda (University of Leeds- Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies) as literary editor and translator.

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.

OpenLIVES Autonomous Learning

This is an autonomous learning activity presented as part of the OpenLIVES JISC-funded project. It is being used in post-A Level Spanish Language at the University of Leeds from January 2013. The activity is in English, but student must answer in Spanish. It can be repurposed and modified according to your students' needs, level and language. 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 student or the tutor to decide which audio clip interview students will work on. This activity is meant to be used for audio clips of the OpenLIVES collection and interview transcripts, but can also be used with any other oral history podcasts/transcripts. One of the main features of the activity is that it introduces students to audience differentiation and student cultural production. The other key feature is that the activity introduces learning reflection, hence raising awareness on life skills. That way the activity can provide students with a research-based experience that connects them to the world of work and life in general. There is also a strong focus on team work. The activity contemplates the possibility of students publishing, in accordance with their own institution protocols, the work as a OER. Finally, this is a good way to introduce students to "interview coding".

Review and Endorsement of OERs by Graduate-Recruiting Employers

Research on review and endorsement of Open Educational Resources (OERs) is being conducted using HumBox resources as part of an Open University SCORE Fellowship Project. The aims of this project, led by Antonio Martinez-Arboleda at the University of Leeds, are to explore and develop a feasible model for employer engagement in OERs and to add extra value to existing and future OERs, hence reinforcing our existing Communities of Practice and encouraging high-quality open content publication and re-use. In particular, the project will look at ways of facilitating the review and endorsement of OERs by graduate-recruiting employers in the HumBox, where a vast range of Arts and Humanities OERs of all levels of granularity have been uploaded and shared by an increasing number of practitioners. In connection with this project, Antonio is interested in proposing a more dynamic, case-based and multilateral approach to employability in the area of Arts in UK HE. In this respect, the review and endorsement of OERs by employers can play a crucial role in this transformation. This project will build on the work which is already being done in the area of employers’ engagement in OERs and will consider the different review and endorsement tools introduced by key OERs repositories. If you are interested in having some of your resources reviewed or endorsed by employers or simply finding out more about this project, please contact Antonio Martínez-Arboleda at sllama@leeds.ac.uk

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.

Los miserables

Spanish writer Juan Ramón Barat reflects upon the aftermath of the Lorca Earthquake of 11 May 2011, which brought down many buildings in this historical city and caused several casualties. In this literary and social piece, distributed to the public on the 18th of May 2011, Barat points at the lack of business ethics in the construction business as one of the reasons behind the destruction caused by the earthquake. This is a good text for those interested in contemporary social, economic and political issues in Spain, as it relates very well to some of the demands and criticisms aired by campaigners of the so-called "Spanish Revolution" of the 15th of May 2011.

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.
