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

Gender Education and Training in Doctoral Level Psychology Programs: An Exploratory Investigation
This doctoral project was an exploratory investigation of the treatment of gender in the education and training of doctoral level psychology graduate students. Fifty-one doctoral level psychology programs, including Ph.D., Psy.D. and Ed.D. programs, were placed into one of three groups based on their orientation, practitioner-oriented program (P-OP), clinical research-oriented program (CR-OP), or combined orientation program (CP). The programs were surveyed by the analysis of their respective we
A Comparative Study of Metaphor in Arabic and English General Business Writing with Teaching Implica
The study aims to compare and contrast the usage and understanding of English and Arabic metaphors. My research attempts to reveal how similar and different Arab secondary learners of English respond when asked to answer or interpret metaphors in both their native and acquired languages. Furthermore, in this dissertation, I also attempted to address the impact of culture in metaphorical thinking. The study made use of a holistic approach, utilizing textual analysis, conversation meetings, partic

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.
