This chapter illustrates the process of collaborative autoethnography (co-autoethnography) we used to construct space, in order to critically explore ourselves, and the contexts we study. Through a co-autoethnographic process, we aimed to better understand our positioning in our lived experiences and to generate an understanding of how reflective critical research approaches could transform us, as well as the communities in which we were immersed. In this chapter, we share the process of our collective analysis of autoethnographic narratives (Coia L, Taylor M, Co/autoethnography: Exploring our teaching selves collaboratively. In L. Fitzgerald, M. Heston, D. Tidwell (Eds.), Research methods for the self-study of practice (pp. 3–16). Netherlands: Springer, 2009), which stemmed from our experiences living and conducting education research in multilingual and multicultural contexts. Our ethnographic method of data collection, analysis, and interpretation was generated from our journeys as researchers – moving to, living, and conducting research in culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) environments. We share this process, and some lessons we learned, with the hope that other researchers may find co-autoethnography a cathartic methodology to explore and challenge their own perspectives relative to cultural and linguistic diversity in their lives and in their research.

Autonomous vehicular technology significantly stresses the issue of safety. Although the use of driverless cars raises considerable expectations of a general improvement in safety, new challenges concerning the safety aspects stem from the changing context. On the one and, the paper addresses regulatory issues raised by the impact of technological changes, particularly standardization problems. On the other hand, the issue of liability questions is investigated as it might cause today’s main legal obstacle for the wide spreading of autonomous cars, especially as autonomous cars might jeopardize the existing approaches to vehicular liability. The aim of this paper is to scrutinize the basic problems in both fields. We provide what, at the current state-of-the-art, appear to be reasonable recommendations from the perspective of technological regulation and law, in order to deal with the main problems that might hamper the development of autonomous transport technology.

Previous studies have defined people, process, tools and technology as relevant elements for Concurrent Engineering (CE) processes. This study analyzes the principles of dynamic interrelation between these elements in the process of developing a satellite (mission), depending on collaborative working interactions. The participants in a CE facility work in parallel, exchanging their knowledge and information, using their set-up tools acting according to the requirements of their disciplinary specialities and the task at hand in the CE process. We analyze the collaborative working context in the CE facility, where compelling moments emerge, that require the different disciplinary positions in the CE facility to engage in negotiations by moving into shared spaces in order to solve the issues at stake. In line with interactional design studies, we identify particular moments in the interaction as "Critical Interaction Instances"(CIIs). CIIs have two criteria, first the awareness of an existing problem. Second the repositioning of the participants in the CE facility which correlates with the shared spaces that the collaboration creates. The results of this study demonstrate that CIIs enhance the collaboration (quality) throughout the CE process. Based on data collected in a CE facility in Germany the study shows how CIIs emerge, unfold and mark collaborative interaction in CE. [less ▲]

The aim of this narrative review is critically to evaluate educational strategies promoting physical activity that are used in the preschool setting in the context of obesity prevention programmes. Literature search was conducted between April and August 2010 in English and German databases (PubMED, PsychINFO, PSYNDEX, ERIC, FIS Bildung). Outcomes considered were time and intensity of physical activity, motor skills or measures of body composition. A total of 19 studies were included. Ten studies added physical activity lessons into their curriculum, one study provided more time for free play, eight studies focused on the social and play environment. Studies reporting positive outcomes implemented physical activity sessions that lasted at least 30 min d(-1). Several studies showed that children are most active in the first 10-15 min. The existence or installation of playground markings or fixed play equipment had no effect, whereas the presence or addition of portable play equipment was positively correlated with moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Teacher training may be a key element for successful interventions. To overcome time constraints, a suggested solution is to integrate physical activity into daily routines and other areas of the preschool curriculum. [less ▲]

The purpose of this critical video-ethnographic study is to gain new perspectives on how the open, dialogic structures in an alternative high school setting afford plurilingual adult students’ to take agency and the development of a positive student identity. With this goal, the study seeks to contribute to the research literature on plurilingual adult students and on nontraditional students learning about sustainability. The overarching question that guides this study is how does the figured world of multilingual sustainability education based on socioscientific issues mediate plurilingual adult students identities as competent science students? This study is multi-theoretical, multi-method, and multi-level, and as such, the manuscriptstyle dissertation presents several case studies of students as they participate in an interdisciplinary unit on sustainability. Situated in a superdiverse context, the data collection took place at an alternative high school, where students who dropped out of the traditional school system have the chance to get a leaving certificate. Data resources include video data, audio data, student artefacts, fieldnotes and photographs. Multimodal discourse analysis based on Gee (1996) was used to reveal the structures at the micro, meso and macro level that mediate learning for students in the alternative educational setting and afford them to make connections to their everyday lives. Three individual manuscripts examine three separate case studies regarding students’ use of transmodalling, students’ engagement in socio-scientific issues, and students’ perspectives on the holistic teaching and learning approaches in their school. Drawing on dialectic understandings of learning, the three case studies each illuminate holistic approaches to learning focusing on students’ multimodal means of expression, emotions and identity development that afford them with opportunities to take agency and create solidarity in the class and school community. This study concludes that dialogic pedagogy as space of possibilities mediates student’ development of identities as competent science learners, which has implications for their identities as agents positioned for transformative actions.

A kinetic, single-cell proteomic study of chemically induced carcinogenesis is interpreted by treating the single-cell data as fluctuations of an open system transitioning between different steady states. In analogy to a first-order transition, phase coexistence and the loss of degrees of freedom are observed. The transition is detected well before the appearance of the traditional biomarker of the carcinogenic transformation. [less ▲]

Reflecting on 'what entrepreneurship is and how entrepreneurship might be studied', Gartner, (2004, p.199) used the notion of 'critical mess' to invoke an image of a 'pile of scholarship' and mass of non-scholarly material on entrepreneurship that has been generated as 'data' for developing stories, theories, concepts, policies and insights for understanding the phenomena of entrepreneurship. In this chapter, we evaluate the collection of studies using the terms 'critical' and 'entrepreneurship' to make transparent the kinds of questions, issues and concerns being addressed through critical inquiry.
