Thurlow, Crispin – International Journal of Multilingualism, 2019
In the way of commentary, I offer a brief, summative reflection on the complex, multifarious nature of people's semiotic engagements in and with space. Against the backdrop of three snapshot case studies, I suggest there are actually few neat boundaries to be drawn between the linguistic and non-linguistic, between the semiotic and the spatial,…

Barneva, Reneta P.; Brimkov, Valentin E.; Gelsomini, Federico; Kanev, Kamen; Walters, Lisa – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2019
Open educational resources (OER) are educational materials with an open license so that they can be freely copied, modified, and reused. While the rising cost of textbooks is a concern in higher education, over 50% of the surveyed educators stated that they are unaware of the OER and how they could replace the traditional textbooks. In addition,…

Grimes, Matthew W. – International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 2019
The case study approach is one form of problem-based learning (PBL) that results in deeper understanding of content, and it involves pushing students to think beyond the answers appropriate for class (Hmelo-Silver, 2004; Nilson, 2010, 2013). Case studies prompt students to consider the realistic implications of how they use course content in…
