Le Français en Afrique : Revue du réseau des observatoires du Français contemporain en Afrique
This journal was set up in 1979 to study the different usage and development of the French language in various francophone African countries. Specifically, it examines use of French from a purely linguistic, rather than ethnocentric, viewpoint. It considers problems caused by the variety of French spoken, seeks solutions to these problems, and also tries to bring together possibly isolated French language researchers in Africa. It appears annually and is available in paper or online format.

BIM and Integrated Practice as Provocateurs of Design Education
Building Information Modeling (BIM) obfuscates the role of composition, scale and abstraction by displacing the primacy of abstract conventions of representation with a methodology based on simulation. BIM subverts, while simultaneously clarifying, the holistic relationships of the parts to the whole in the architectural design of form and space. Architectural design education has great opportunity and risk in how it comes to terms with re-conceptualizing design education pedagogy as the profess

Introduction

The focus of this course is on implementing a project. The first part considers how the activities of a project start. Although planning and action run side by side, it is often difficult to initiate action to progress the first tasks. Once things start to happen, the project enters a new stage. Management of the project changes, from stimulating the initial action to monitoring and reviewing it in order to control the project's progress. Control systems are essential in managing a project of
