Proceedings from the XXXV FAAPI Conference

Posted by Mariel Amez on October 1, 2010

We have already commented on the high academic quality and excellent organisation of the XXXV FAAPI Conference held in Cordoba, but the state-of the art e-book publication of the Proceedings deserves a separate post.

Some may have been disappointed to find that no hard copy of the Conference Proceedings was given to participants, but a “mere” CD instead. However, such disappointment must have been short-lived: only the time it took to insert the CD in a computer and witness the wealth of the e-book unfold before their eyes. Intuitive to use, yet vividly reproducing  the experience of page-turning, it brings together some of the Plenary and Semiplenary presentations as well as a selection of papers submitted for publication. But if you find the prospect of handling the e-book a little daunting, you shouldn’t worry, since a pdf version has also been included in the CD.

A Room of One’s Own is particularly grateful to Editor Mario López Barrios and the Editorial Committee (Deborah Krainin, Elba Villanueva de Debat and Daniel Fernández) for devoting an entire section of the Proceedings to the papers belonging to our group. It is a source of pride to us to find ourselves in the company of all the talented professionals whose work is gathered in the book.

FAAPI President Dr Daniel Fernandez expresses in his Introduction that their guiding principle has been to make the Proceedings

a contribution to teacher education and professional development from two different angles: (a) content specificity, and (b) the adequate grammaticalisation of knowledge and experience

It is our conviction that this aim has been met to a fault. So if you were lucky to be a participant at the Conference and are in possesion of the e-book, don’t delay! Start browsing straight away!

If that is not the case, you can read some of the AROOO papers below.
