Theory-based support for mobile language learning: noticing and recording
This paper considers the issue of 'noticing' in second language acquisition, and argues for the potential of handheld devices to: (i) support language learners in noticing and recording noticed features 'on the spot', to help them develop their second language system; (ii) help language teachers better understand the specific difficulties of individuals or those from a particular language background; and (iii) facilitate data collection by applied linguistics researchers, which can be fed back i

Critique of Postmodern Ethics of Alterity versus Embodied (Muslim) Others: Incompatibility, Diversio
In this dissertation, I investigated postmodern alterity, constructivism, and agency through addressing their translatability and implications. In Chapter One, I critiqued postmodern main concepts of alterity and constructivism, showing that these terms can be vague and counterproductive unless they are attenuated with political socio-cultural realities. In Chapter Two, through analyzing modern texts, I explored claims that Western epistemology/ontology reduces the other to the Same. Although su

Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.

Penn State Odor Assessment Lab seeks to mitigate nuisance odor emissions from farm areas.
Once upon a time the boundary between farmland and housing developments was very distinct. Farmers in the past did not necessarily concern themselves with the odors that came from field operations, but as more people move to rural areas from urban sites, farmers and non farming residents have become next door neighbors and nuisance odors have become a problem. Robin Brandt is the co-director of the Penn State Odor Assessment Lab in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering. His
