Yükseköğretimde akademik kendileşme (Academic Inbreeding) ve kurumsal habitusun inşası üzerine bir tartışma

This article develops a new framework that explains how academic inbreeding structures and practices produce institutional habitus and generate forms of institutional micro structures and practices at higher education institutions. In this study, we try to map the territory of institutional habitus with tracing its link to academic inbreeding practices and attempt to refine its encounters in diverse spheres of institutional life and higher education. In the first part, we review the current literature on academic inbreeding that recognizes its permeability and contested meanings through developing a connection with the concept of institutional habitus. The literature review part, first, aims to provide the overall picture of inbreeding practices in higher education institutions (HEI’s) with addressing its functional as well as cultural roles. Then, it aims to question and extend the effects of inbreeding on population through engaging in different disciplinary fields, such as biology and philosophy.In this light, the discussion on the contested meanings and functionalities of inbreeding system has blossomed under the guidance of current scholarly literature, which, meanwhile, requires careful attention to the complex and dependent linkages between discourses of functionality in inbreeding practices and forms of institutional life in academic culture within which all these scientific productivities and relational discourses are deployed. In the second part of the article, based on the concept of institutional habitus, we explicate and locate the effects of inbreeding practices within the institutional units and examine in what extent academic inbreeding produce, reproduce, and drives the practices of institutional habitus-for example in terms of cohesive institutional relations, group identity formations and practices, institutional loyalty and emotions, discourses of scientific productivity, internal pockets of research territories, and forms of institutional dispositions. In the final part, we summarize the main concerns about academic inbreeding and how it functions in higher education institutions. As these sources and discussions point out, a growing body of literature focusing on the patterns and practices of inbreeding mechanism contribute to the understanding of how diverse and relational its institutional functions.

Material Semiotics of Form Giving: The Case of the Electric Turkish Coffee Pot
Kaygan, Harun (MIT Press - Journals, 2016-03-01)
The article discusses material semiotics as a valuable framework for the analysis of design processes, and focuses on form giving practices. For this purpose, the design processes of electric Turkish coffee pots are studied through interviews and document analyses. It is argued that neither form giving nor product form can be considered to be singular or stable throughout a design process, and that semantic and material relations that are built and maintained around the product form need to be traced for a ...

Karakuş, Türkan; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2011)
Contextual issues have considerable role on learning outcomes of instructional design process. In this dissertation study, an instructional multimedia design and development course was explored to understand how contextual issues influence the experience and processes of Novice Instructional Designers’ (NIDs) activities in an instructional design project. The main participants of the study were 47 junior Computer Education and Instructional Technology students who were enrolled in the course. Besides, 26 st...

An analysis of the diffusion of structures and practices in a high-level bureaucratic organization in Turkey by using "new institutional theory"
Sert, Semih; Şimşek, Hasan; Department of Educational Sciences (2008)
This study analyzes the process of the diffusion of structures and practices in an organizational setting using the theory of new institutionalism as the theoretical basis. The explanation of the diffusion process has been subject to major variations due to epistemological and ontological reasons. Former theories of organizational reality looked at organizations as their sole units of analyses and accounted for the diffusion process accordingly; however, today, it is widely observed and accepted that organi...
