Across the Traces: Lawrence Jordan's Animated Documents
Pinar, Ekin (SAGE Publications, 2020-03-01)
Since the early 1960s, Lawrence Jordan has appropriated a variety of Victorian engravings transforming them into experimental animations through the use of cut-out stop-motion techniques. In their outmoded style and technique, the dense tapestry of collaged ephemera begins to function as indices of their original Victorian context and its printing processes. But the stop-motion manipulation also renders these indexical documents surreal through the juxtaposition of apparently unrelated images. This amounts ...

In the dissertation, however, it will be claimed with the German philosopher Martin Heidegger that the critical stand taken against the subjec...

Experiencing the Real-scale: Mock-up of a Set Design Project
Şenyapılı, Burcu; İmamoğlu, Çağrı; Osman Demirbaş, Özgen (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2009)
This paper claims that in spite of the unique opportunities introduced to design learning by the emergence of virtual models, the benefits of learning through building in real-scale cannot be totally disregarded. Within this framework, a real-scale project through which students could study light, color and texture was proposed in a senior interior design studio course. Students were asked to work in groups and create a set design, using different objects, materials, colors and lighting configurations withi...
Tracing Successful Online Teaching in Higher Education: Voices of Exemplary Online Teachers
Baran, Evrim; Correia, Ana-Paula; Thompson, Ann D. (2013-03-01)
Background: Although advances in distance learning have shown signs of a reconfiguration of the teacher's role in online environments, a large number of online teaching practices still do not show many signs of this shift. Given the need for a change in pedagogies, investigating how exemplary teachers transfer their thinking, pedagogical knowledge, and beliefs to successful online teaching is critical to understanding new online learning and teaching practices. The research on online teacher roles and pract...
