Strauss, Luísa Mariele; Borenstein, Denis – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, 2015
Higher education in Brazil has experienced a rapid expansion since the 1990s as a consequence of the government's pliability in launching new programs and educational institutions. This expansion was mainly driven by the private sector. Despite this expansion, Brazil has not yet achieved the enrollment goal expected in the National Education Plan…

Dean, Anna Ciriani – Working Papers in TESOL & Applied Linguistics, 2017
Studies adopting a Complex Dynamic Systems Theory framework have often fallen into one of two camps: those investigating variable linguistic subsystems (namely, CAF studies) and those concerned with non-linguistic variables displaying the characteristics of dynamic systems, with little concern for their connection to linguistic development.…

Andre, Amael; Louvet, Benoit; Despois, Julien; Velez, Christine – Journal of Special Education, 2019
Based on the complex dynamic system approach, this research aimed to study the variability of the typical configurations of interactions between the adults' participation and the engagement of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in two activities proposed in a French preschool. The classroom sessions were filmed once a month for 8 months…

Kara, Ahmet – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2018
This paper develops a human capital-based structural equation model to analyze the mediocre-quality, low-productivity, and low-performance levels characterizing large subsets of universities in developing countries. Using a structural equation model, we have first specified one particular way in which overall university performance might be…

Weeks, Margaret R.; Li, Jianghong; Liao, Susu; Zhang, Qingning; Dunn, Jennifer; Wang, Yanhong; Jiang, Jingmei – Health Education & Behavior, 2013
Social and public health scientists are increasingly interested in applying system dynamics theory to improve understanding and to harness the forces of change within complex, multilevel systems that affect community intervention implementation, effects, and sustainability. Building a system dynamics model based on ethnographic case study has the…

Croake, Daniel J.; Andreatta, Richard D.; Stemple, Joseph C. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: Normative data for many objective voice measures are routinely used in clinical voice assessment; however, normative data reflect vocal output, but not vocalization process. The underlying physiologic processes of healthy phonation have been shown to be nonlinear and thus are likely different across individuals. Dynamic systems theory…

Guevara, Marlenny; Rojas Ospina, Tatiana; van Geert, Paul – Cogent Education, 2020
Transfer is not static but a dynamic process of learning. In this article, the concept of transfer and the implications of its study are reconsidered from the theoretical basis of the complex dynamic system approach. We describe "transfer" as an emergent process that implies not a copy of knowledge applied to a new situation, but a new…

Christopher, Adam – International Journal on E-Learning, 2020
There are two important dimensions to successful second language learning: what goes on inside the classroom and what goes on outside of the classroom (Richards, 2015). This paper investigates smartphone use for online learning of English among Japanese university students using online surveys and semi-structured interviews. The investigation…

Fischer, Helen; Gonzalez, Cleotilde – Cognitive Science, 2016
Stocks and flows (SF) are building blocks of dynamic systems: Stocks change through inflows and outflows, such as our bank balance changing with withdrawals and deposits, or atmospheric CO[subscript 2] with absorptions and emissions. However, people make systematic errors when trying to infer the behavior of dynamic systems, termed SF failure,…

Lenzing, Anke – Language Learning, 2015
This article focuses on a theoretical and empirical exploration of developmental trajectories and individual learner variation in second language (L2) acquisition. Taking a processability perspective, I view learner language as a dynamic system that includes predictable universal developmental trajectories as well as individual learner variation,…

Tuluk, Arif; Sahin, Muhittin; Yurdugül, Halil – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2019
In 1984 Benjamin Bloom stated that one-to-one tutorial support increased students' achievement by two standard deviations (two sigma problem). In the literature for solving two sigma problem (in order to increase student achievement), many systems were developed as intelligent tutoring systems, adaptive hypermedia systems, recommender systems and…

Ahmed, Shafinaz; Dean, Anna Ciriani – Working Papers in TESOL & Applied Linguistics, 2017
Since its inception in the late 1960's, the field of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) has undergone many transformations. As pre-existing theories have been expanded upon and new theories introduced, researchers and practitioners have come to a deeper understanding of the second language (L2) learning process. The past two decades, in particular,…

Bowman, Kaye; McKenna, Suzy – National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), 2016
This occasional paper provides an overview of the development of Australia's national training system and is a key knowledge document of a wider research project "Consistency with flexibility in the Australian national training system." This research project investigates the various approaches undertaken by each of the jurisdictions to…

Garner, Joanna K.; Kaplan, Avi – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2019
Scholars have called for new conceptualisations of teachers' learning that capture the complex, contextualised, and dynamic nature of professional growth. In this article, we describe the Dynamic Systems Model of Role Identity (DSMRI) that portrays teacher learning as inseparable from the complex and dynamic processes by which teachers form their…

Zhang, Yanhui – Advances in Language and Literary Studies, 2020
This paper takes a system dynamic approach to study homogeneous texts where the dynamics of the lexical richness of such texts over time are of the focal concern. It is hypothesized that the progress of the lexical complexity is driven by how far away this process is from the maximum level of complexity, while is subject to the fluctuations due to…
