Silence in L2 writing classrooms: Global Perspectives

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 9:59pm
University of New Mexico
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Students are often silent in classes. How do teachers interpret silence from students? How do students interpret silence from the teachers? Why do students’ choose to be silent in the classroom? Are teachers aware that students are choosing to be silent? Through the lens of languaging, silence is a linguistic/language device that is less addressed in the research. Like languaging, the use of silence in classrooms can be perceived as “creative and critical use of linguistic resources to mediate cognitively complex activities (Garcia & Wei, 2014, p. 10). Because second language (L2) writers have multiple languages in their linguistic repertoires, silence is one of the strategies that has been misinterpreted by many instructors.

The benefits of undergraduate research are well established in the literature, and many colleges and universities are now fully embracing undergraduate research as a means to enhance student learning, prepare students for graduate school, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and promote community engagement. The spring 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will examine undergraduate research for the twenty-first century. How is undergraduate research preparing students for the workforce? What role does technology play in undergraduate research? How can undergraduate research address the complex sociopolitical problems of the twenty-first century?

Double the Teaching: the Work of Community College Faculty

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:53am
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

We readily describe the job of university professors as having three components: research, teaching, and service. These same three components manifest themselves in the work of community college faculty. Nevertheless, full-time community college faculty typically have at least double the teaching load of their peers at the university. This much greater emphasis on teaching together with much diminished requirements (and support) for research means the work of a full-time community college instructor has a distinct balance of efforts and outcomes.

The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.

Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.

Plenary Speaker: Dan Melzer, Associate Professor, University of California, Davis

 

In his memoir, Bootstraps, Victor Villanueva shrewdly points out that “The community college is torn between vocational training and preparing the unprepared for traditional university work. And it seems unable to resolve the conflict.” This view of community colleges hasn’t changed much since Villanueva’s book was published in the early 1990s.

Special Issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning: The Toil of Feeling: Education as Emotional Labor

updated: 
Thursday, February 21, 2019 - 8:45am
Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings.  This special issue will take as its premise the notion that we must consider emotions as work in order to obtain a fuller picture of what transpires with teachers and learners in institutional contexts and beyond.
