Conscience in Language Teaching and its Relationship with Language Proficiency and Emotional Intelligence of EFL Teachers by Sedighe Jalili Kalangestani was published here.
Several factors contribute to the efficacy of an English language teacher, among which, language proficiency and emotional intelligence. Yet, there is a newly developed factor which claims to add value to a language teacher. This new factor is called language teaching conscience. Conscience is the sense of right and wrong, which tells us whether what we are doing is morally right or wrong based on particular norms, rules, or religions. Conscientious teachers seem to be more responsible for their job, classroom practice, and students’ needs. On the other hand, teachers who are emotionally more able to understand their students’ needs may have better control of the students and classroom atmosphere, thereby promoting students’ success.
- 24When speaking about emergentism we mainly refer to the interaction between organism and environment and that denies the existence of pre-determined, domain specific faculties or capacities. In language acquisition, emergentists state that simple learning mechanisms are sufficient to bring about the emergence of complex language representations. There are two types of emergentism. On the one hand, there is one type based on input, which is the input-based emergentism (emergentist-connectionist model). On the other hand, there is the one that considers the role of the processing working memory, which, however, does not ignore the contribution of the input to the process…
- BRAIN: The Interplay among EFL Teachers´ Teaching Experience, Critical Thinking, and Classroom Management22What makes a great teacher? The list is perhaps endless, but many would agree that classroom management is a crucial skill that any teacher needs. Classroom management is a term used to describe the processes by which teachers and schools create and maintain appropriate behavior of students in classroom settings. It is a complex concept as it refers to more than one action. This involves the ability to make each class interesting and thus keeping the students focused, and also dealing with unexpected problems in an appropriate way. When classroom management techniques are applied effectively, the students are active, they…
A serious health condition that affects 1% of the global population is epilepsy. This is a neurological disorder usually detected by EEG (electroencephalography) signals, and it has as common symptom spontaneous recurrent seizures characterized by intermittent paroxysmal and highly organized rhythmic neuronal discharges in the cerebral cortex.
Epileptic seizures are caused by a large collection of neurons synchronous and abnormally discharged may occur for reasons such as trauma, oxygen insufficiency, tumors, infections and metabolic disorders. However, it is not possible to find any cause in half of the epileptic patients. Despite the fact that epilepsy is referred to as “seizure disease”, it is not correct to call seizures “epilepsy”. Seizures are symptoms, but epilepsy is a disease characterized by a recurrent seizure. Nonlinearity and a sensitive dependence on initial conditions are the requirements of the chaos. As chaos requires dependence on the initial conditions and it is unpredictable in the long run. (more…)
LiBRI: Le rôle de la langue roumaine dans le processus d’internationalisation de l’enseignement supérieur roumain
Le dernier numéro de la revue LiBRI présente, parmi les autres, l’article écrit par Oana-Luiza Barbu intitulé « Le Rôle de la Langue Roumaine dans le Processus d’Internationalisation de l’Enseignement Supérieur Roumain », à travers lequel l’auteure se propose d’analyser la manière dans laquelle la langue roumaine est instrumentalisée par le processus d’internationalisation et de voir quelles sont les résultats de ce processus.
Dans le cadre du processus d’internationalisation, la langue roumaine représente l’instrument par lequel la culture roumaine est promue, et le spécifique national est préservé.
PhD Ahmad Kareem Salem Al-Wuhaili will present in the latest volume of the LiBRI journal an article about the duality of political apologies, aiming to reveal the fact that important political faces apologise without meaning it.
Unfortunately, apologising, which used to be a sincere statement of one’s feelings of guilt, sadness or pity, has become a tool for some politicians to solve problems by using means of emotional manipulation. Politics has developed ever since the beginning the same concept; Chilton defined politics as a struggle for power, a fight between those who want to impose it and those who go against it. The paradox of politics is the fact that it functions based on two opposing features which are put together: cooperation and conflict.
- 20In the latest volume of the LiBRI, Andreea Paris illustrates in the article “The Play on Incarnation as Artistic Creation in Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Howl’” different modalities used by Ginsberg in the poem “Howl” to express the concept of incarnation. In this essay, the author will approach the theological implication of incarnation illustrated in the poem “Howl”, in order to show Alan Ginsberg’s perspective upon the transcendence of spiritual elements into physical ones (the metaphysical act is conveyed into literary creation). Thus, the poet becomes a prophet who has to deliver a spiritual message. The musicality is also very important in…
