Data Driven Learning (DDL)
• In DDL, a student has access to a large body of
  authentic language, from which s/he can extract
  language items in context. (Boulton, 2011)
   •   The student is a language “research worker”
       (Johns, 1994).
• An A to Z of Technology for EAP (Watson,
  Professional Issues Meeting at Southampton
  2012)
   •   no mention of DDL...

Learning Collocations in FLAX:
 in response to ‘where are the good published
           collocations resources?’
• Research shows that the successful use of
  collocations in student writing and speaking supports
  not only improved levels of accuracy but also
  improved levels of fluency in their use of English
  (Wray, 2002; Nesselhauf, 2003).
• Constraints with published collocations resources
   – Publication issues = the number and specificity of
     collocations examples that can be assigned to print
     and CD-ROM formats.
British Academic Written English corpus:
      browse by genre or discipline
The BAWE collections in FLAX:
  moving away from mutt genres with digitally
       enhanced and authentic genres
• “ ‘mutt genres’—genres that do not respond to
  rhetorical situations requiring communication in order to
  accomplish a purpose that is meaningful to the author”
  (Wardell, 2009).
• “Unsurprisingly, the utility of the corpus is increased
  when it has been annotated, making it no longer a body
  of text where linguistic information is implicitly present,
  but one which may be considered a repository of
  linguistic information.” (ICT4LT, Module 3.4 Corpus
  Linguistics http://www.ict4lt.org/en/en_mod3-4.htm)
BAWE sub corpus wordlists
The BAWE sub corpus text collections:

“In the late 19th century Oxford was one of the
pioneers of the university extension movement,
which enabled audiences around the UK to hear
what some of its lecturers had to say on a wide
range of topics. The OpenSpires project is the 21st
century equivalent, though, with the benefit of the
web, the audiences are now global and we hope
even more diverse. It is a pleasure to contribute to
this important venture, which is opening up Oxford
like never before”.
(McDonald, n.d.)

  • 8. Learning Collocations in FLAX: in response to ‘where are the good published collocations resources?’ • Research shows that the successful use of collocations in student writing and speaking supports not only improved levels of accuracy but also improved levels of fluency in their use of English (Wray, 2002; Nesselhauf, 2003). • Constraints with published collocations resources – Publication issues = the number and specificity of collocations examples that can be assigned to print and CD-ROM formats.
  • 9. British Academic Written English corpus: browse by genre or discipline
  • 10. The BAWE collections in FLAX: moving away from mutt genres with digitally enhanced and authentic genres • “ ‘mutt genres’—genres that do not respond to rhetorical situations requiring communication in order to accomplish a purpose that is meaningful to the author” (Wardell, 2009). • “Unsurprisingly, the utility of the corpus is increased when it has been annotated, making it no longer a body of text where linguistic information is implicitly present, but one which may be considered a repository of linguistic information.” (ICT4LT, Module 3.4 Corpus Linguistics http://www.ict4lt.org/en/en_mod3-4.htm)

  • 21. “In the late 19th century Oxford was one of the pioneers of the university extension movement, which enabled audiences around the UK to hear what some of its lecturers had to say on a wide range of topics. The OpenSpires project is the 21st century equivalent, though, with the benefit of the web, the audiences are now global and we hope even more diverse. It is a pleasure to contribute to this important venture, which is opening up Oxford like never before”. (McDonald, n.d.)

Editor's Notes

  1. Teachers can construct collections of different types: for different purposes and for different types of students. The collections can be: item specific domain and/or topic specific graded for levels of difficulty representative of a particular source or of a particular genre subsets of a larger corpus e.g. BAWE. P otentially students can also construct collections (see Charles, 2012)
  2. 70 ninutes
  3. Well-resourced – ou – ebooks, lectures and more – not able to identify individuals as made by teams Podcasts – oxford – 40% cc – highlighting stars China – Nottingham – campus at Ningbo instead of having to use youtube which is blocked uNow Representing the ethos of the institutions The best marketing is great learning material – Martin Bean
  4. A new method of giving individual items individual licenses in the metadata is apparently on its way
  5. August 16, 2010
  6. 70 ninutes
  7. Ylva –OER mash-up for language learning Do we want to say something about discipline-spec discourse types in uni lectures/seminars? Turn taking in uni seminars – uni of Birmingham – looking at different knowledge domains – something I saw at CLC in B ’ ham in July E.g. medical seminars – long turn from sts presenting case studies with input from tutor and other sts at the end. Hard sciences have a lot more stop and check the facts built into exchanges btwn sts and tutors -
