12.103 Strange Bedfellows: Science and Environmental Policy (MIT)
12.103 explores the role of scientific knowledge, discovery, method, and argument in environmental policymaking from both idealistic and realistic perspectives. The course will use case studies of science-intensive environmental controversies to study how science was used and abused in the policymaking process. Case studies include: global warming, biodiversity loss, and nuclear waste disposal siting. Subject includes intensive practice in the writing and presentation of "position statements" on

This paper focuses on a discussion on the approach taken in analysing evaluation design for a specific faculty module on enterprise education
Your course might not include any maths or technical content but, at some point during your studies, it’s likely that you’ll come across information represented in charts, graphs and tables. You’ll be expected to know how to interpret this information, and possibly encouraged to present your own findings in this way. This unit will help you to develop the skills you need to do this, and gain the confidence to use them. This unit can be used in conjunction with, and builds on the ‘Working
Bert Ingelaere gives a talk for the 2009 Taking Stock of Transitional Justice Conference entitled 'Life (stories) in transition: A methodological approach to study political transition and transitional justice from below'
This unit examines the role that Scots played in contributing to the developments in healthcare during the nineteenth century. The radical transformation of medicine in Europe included the admission of women as doctors and the increased numbers of specialised institutions such as asylums. Such developments were also influenced by wider social, economic, political and cultural backgrounds – these are also examined.
Mark Napier, an independent consultant, speaks on Case Studies of Financial Innovation in Africa 26 October 2010
The talk discussed the trends driving economic growth in Africa, the outlook for Africa's financial industry, why donors believe financial sector development matters and what the key ingredients are for successful innovation at the bottom of Africa's financial pyramid.
This event forms part of the 'Changing Perceptions of Business and Development&
Noshua Watson, Research Fellow in the Globalisation team at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), speaks on Perspectives on Business Strategy and Development 19 October 2010
Noshua Watson discussed the different motivations for corporate engagement with development and levers of influence on corporate decision making in this respect. These motivations explain some of the different forms that business strategies take with respect to development, such as corporate social respons
Paul Collier (Professor of Economics, Oxford University, Economics Department and author of 'The Bottom Billion' and 'The Plundered Planet') and Andy Sumner (Research Fellow, Institute of Development Studies) discuss Andy's new paper 'The New Bottom Billion and the MDGs: A Plan of Action' published by IDS.

Karen Ellis, Research Fellow and Programme Leader from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), speaks on Measuring the Impact of Business on Development. 12 October 2010
Why have both business and the development community become increasingly interested in developing tools to measure the impact of business on development? What approaches have been used or proposed, and what are the limitations of existing tools and the conceptual and practical challenges associated with measureme
Convened by Dr Sam Wells, this session will review some of the key aspects of the Climate 2030 seminar series, consider innovative approaches to meeting energy demand in a carbon constrained world and look at the role of organisations in achieving a sustainable future.
Professor Robert Vink is the NRF Chair of Neurosurgical Research and Head, School of Medical Sciences. This lecture will examine some of the revolutionary new approaches being developed for brain protection in both the young and the old, and how we as individuals can incorporate some of these measures into our everyday lives.
The Dung File is a collection of references relevant to the archaeological and paleoenvironmental analysis of coprolites and latrine fills, with a focus on North American research. Compiled by the University of Alberta's Alwynne B. Beaudoin, the Dung File includes ten sections: four to do with deposit origin; one devoted to theses; two on modern comparative studies; another listing articles from the popular press; and two broader categories including a section on procedural and analytical techni
iEARN is an international nonprofit organization that connects over 15,000 schools in 100 countries through Internet networks. Using the Internet and other communications technologies, students and teachers conduct collaborative educational projects that meet curricular goals in Arts / Literature / Language Arts, Social Studies, and Math / Science / Environment. Participants choose from over 120 projects, which are designed and facilitated by teachers and students with the purpose of developing
Constantly providing feedback to on-line learning teams is a challenging yet one of the latest and most attractive issues to influence learning experience in a positive manner. The possibility to enhance learning groups participation by means of providing appropriate feedback is rapidly gaining popularity due to its great impact on group performance and outcomes. Indeed, by storing parameters of interaction such as participation behaviour and giving constant feedback of these parameters to the
This study aims to explore two crucial aspects of collaborative work and learning: the importance of enabling CSCL applications, on the one hand, to capture and structure the information generated by group activity and, on the other hand, to extract the relevant knowledge in order to provide learners and tutors with efficient awareness and support as regards collaboration. To this end, we first identify and define the main types of information generated in online group activity and then propose
The purpose of this study was to analyse secondary school students (N = 16) computer-supported collaborative mathematical problem solving. The problem addressed in the study was: What kinds of metacognitive processes appear during computer-supported collaborative learning in mathematics? Another aim of the study was to consider the applicability of networked learning in mathematics. The network-based learning environment Knowledge Forum (KF) was used to support students collaborative problem
Why are so many people now turning to complementary and alternative medicine and why do approaches to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) raise such controversy? This unit explores the following three key areas: ‘Why people use complementary and alternative medicine’, ‘Critical issues in the therapeutic relationship’ and ‘Ethics in complementary and alternative medicine’.
