An Assessment of Undergraduate Course Syllabi in the Departments of English at Universities in Taiwan

Creator: Lin, Baysan
Description: This exploratory, qualitative research explored the extent that course syllabi in the Departments of English in 13 public and 9 private universities in Taiwan reflect the inclusion of syllabus components to promote learning as recommended in the literature in the United States. Research questions included: what components can be inferred from the literature in the U.S. for the recommended components of a course syllabus, for the components for a learning-centered syllabus, and for a model to analyze Bloom's cognitive level of learning? And when these are applied to analyze course syllabi in English courses, are syllabi in these universities congruent with the models? The research identified and analyzed 235 course syllabi from the core courses listed online at these universities. The findings indicated that these syllabi are highly congruent with the syllabus components template; 68% of the syllabi included seven or more of the ten components. Additionally, these syllabi reflect medium congruency with the learning-centered syllabus template. Verbs used in objectives and learning outcomes in different English courses indicate different levels of cognitive learning goals as identified by Bloom's cognitive domain. Additional findings indicate that there was no difference in inclusion of components based on where faculty earned their doctoral ...

Guest Editorial: Can Artificial Intelligence Have a Near-Death Experience? A Critical Look at the Ultimate Text

Date: Autumn 1998
Creator: Gunn, Susan C.
Description: Abstract: Since a computer model begins as an instance of writing, that is, a "text," it is appropriate to examine this kind of discourse through the perspective of literary criticism. I examine Stephen Thaler's (1995) "intelligent" computer program and conclude that the gedanken creatures are constructed upon a structuralist theory of the text, which cannot support a complete simulation of human intelligence of experience.

"A Grace Beyond the Reach of Art:" A Study of the Literary and Biographical Influences Upon Thomas Gray and His Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

"A Grace Beyond the Reach of Art:" A Study of the Literary and Biographical Influences Upon Thomas Gray and His Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

Date: December 1974
Creator: Sosbee, Geral W.
Description: This study focuses on the poetic temperament of Thomas Gray and considers his Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard as representative of a change in sensibility which took place roughly in the last half of the eighteenth century. The first chapter considers the literary and biographical influences on the author's changing aesthetic sensibility. The second chapter concerns the early life and education of Gray and his friendship with Walpole and West. The third chapter is a study of the Elegy itself and how it represents the poetic and aesthetic ideas of the author and the age in which he lived. In the concluding chapter Gray is considered as a transitional figure whose work embodies unresolved tensions between the Neoclassic and the Romantic.
