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.

There are three different types activities in this resource each of which are drawn from literature teaching but which are adaptable to other subjects. In one you are provided with a full module description and asked how it might need to be modified for particular teaching contexts, such as whether it is a final year ‘option’ course, or a compulsory first year course. In the next activity, ‘Pacing it out’ you are challenged to halve the number of texts studied on a module and adapt your teaching approach accordingly. The third type of activity addresses ‘Curriculum Framing’ and asks you to consider the pedagogical contexts for teaching particular texts.

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.’

Mapping and applying desirable student attributes

These activities are for English lecturers interested in developing their pedagogical skills in accord with the skills they would like their students to acquire. Both the individual and group activity are focused on the use of a stimulating list of 'desirable student attributes' such as having the patience to read long novels. How exactly are you hoping to affect your students' behaviour when you teach them? Obviously, you want them to attend classes and submit assessments, but what of more interesting, subtle practices? What intellectual, organisational, aesthetic qualities would you like your teaching to encourage? The argument of the activities in this resource is that thinking about possible answers to these questions is an excellent first step towards a reconceptualisation of your role as a lecturer.

One activity utilises video footage of Dr Hannah Crawforth (King’s College London), who discusses lectures as a form of rhetoric.

The Utopian years? Radical left movements in Pompidou's france

This half day conference, organised by Dr Manus McGrogan at the University of Portsmouth on 12 May 2011, uncovered the trajectories of some of the movements that emerged in early 1970s France, helping to define the radical left politics of the era. This was the aftermath of May ‘68’s mass upheaval, when France, in the grip of student riots and a general strike, had seemed on the verge of revolution. May’s utopian dimension, embodied in slogans such as ‘sous les pavés la plage’ and ‘prenez vos désirs pour la réalité’, held the promise of a world transformed in which each could pursue their own desires, a powerful spur to thousands of young activists, students and workers. The mass revolt of May had also shown that collective action could change the world. These impulses, shaped subsequently by political, socio-cultural and international events, combined to generate new, youth-inflected gender/sexual liberation movements, independent immigrant organisation, ecology groups, underground press, and other movements that were linked to, or autonomous of left political organisation. However, activists also had to contend with a Gaullist State that tentatively introduced reforms, whilst clamping down on the hard left ‘troublions’ still agitating for popular revolt. Intervention in the workers movement also proved problematic given the PCF/CGT dominance in the major workplaces. President Georges Pompidou, on a path of modernising France, perpetuated the social conservatism of his predecessor de Gaulle; faced with these barriers, activists of the Mouvement de Mai sought to merge political radicalism with the cultural underground to fashion an alternative France, as a May-inspired slogan intoned, changer la vie. But what happened to this surge of hope for change? Five academics presented papers on important aspects of this early 1970s radicalism, with the participation of students and lecturers from similar disciplines. They considered the origins and development of the new movements, their significance within Pompidou’s France; the interrelationship of movements, and finally their resonance, or relevance in the France of today. The conference was also part of the undergraduate programme in French History and was generously supported by the LLAS subject centre. The exam was based on the themes developed during the conference.

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.

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.
