Sentence-level stress is one of the major means of expressing information focus in oral speaking, and it is of importance for Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) learners to accurately receive and send the right information in conversation. However, research related to teaching stress, especially sentence-level stress, is indeed scarce. In this stu...

Abstract: Background: The linkage between teaching and research—also labelled the Teaching Research Nexus (TRN)—is the object of a recurrent debate in higher education. The debate centres on the nature of the interrelation, TRN benefits and challenges, concrete TRN strategies, and its impact on students and academics. Methods: Based on a systematic...

In Ecuador, 30% of the population does not consume drinking water of good quality. One of the causes is related to the deficiency in the technical skills of water operators because some have not had access to elementary, high school or higher education due to factors of extreme vulnerability. The Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), having an inclu...

Only 35% of the Ecuadorian population consumes drinking water of “assured quality”. One of the causes is related to the deficiencies in the technical ability of the operators due to their lack of education, technical training, and experience. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) responsive to characteristics and learning needs are an option to stren...

Although reacting properly to students’ aggressive behaviour in the classroom is considered a key competence (Emmer & Stough, 2001), novice teachers often fail to react properly to students’ problem behaviour such as (verbal) aggressive behaviour. Furthermore, they report feeling ill-prepared to deal with problem behaviour (Brouwers & Tomic, 2000)....
