Creative teaching and learning in Foundation Stage and Year 1: indications from observations inside
The resource is a draft research paper, presented at the British Educational Research Association (BERA) annual conference 2009. The paper discusses the findings of a small-scale research project that investigated the potential of using the outdoor environment as a catalyst for encouraging motivation, social interaction and creative curriculum planning. Early in the paper, the comment is made that, "current educational policy in the UK appears to be shifting from an emphasis on teaching to learn
Identifying Components of Attainment Gaps
The resource is a standalone report produced by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, which is designed to increase understanding of a number of factors affecting pupil attainment at the end of Key Stage Four. The report uses data collected as part of the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE) project. The research explores if the LSYPE data can be usefully combined with National Pupil Database (NPD) data to provide enhanced information on attainment gaps between pupi
Winter Lecture Series - 2009: Gene-Genie - once out of the bottle, who should control our genes?
The leader of the Human Genome Research Project, the University of Otago’s Professor Mark Henaghan, looks at how far we should regulate, or if at all, to determine control of genetic testing – and is New Zealand law up to the task? Should we trust in parental choice to make the right decisions with the new technology? 2009 Winter Lecture Series
Menand on Psychiatry
Louis Menand of Harvard University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the state of psychiatry. Drawing on a recent article of his in the New Yorker, Menand talks about the state of knowledge in psychiatry and the scientific basis for making conclusions about mental illness and various therapies. Menand argues that the research record shows little difference between the effectiveness of psychopharmacology and talk therapies of various kinds in fighting depression. Neither is particularly
Gregory on Politics, Murder, and Love in Stalin's Kremlin
Paul Gregory of the University of Houston and a Research Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about Nikolai Bukharin's power struggle with Stalin and Bukharin's romance with Anna Larina, who was 26 years younger than Bukharin. Based on Gregory's book, Politics, Murder, and Love in Stalin's Kremlin, the conversation explores the career and personal life of Bukharin and how his career and personal life intersected. Bukharin was one of the key fou
Angiogenesis and Metastasis in Cancer
The resource below is a series of Powerpoint slides (and a list of further reading) on the cellular and molecular basis of angiogenesis and metastasis in cancer. It gives a short overview of the basic organisation of blood vessels and how tuours agrow and spread by stimulating new blood vessel growth and metastic transformation, highlighting the signalling pathways involved in these processes. These slides were created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi as part of her course to first and second year undergrad

7.342 Cancer Biology: From Basic Research to the Clinic (MIT)
This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. In 1971, President Nixon declared the "War on Cancer," but after three decades the war is still raging. How much progress have we made toward winning the war and what are we doing to improve the fight? Unde

The All about Oats website from the HGCA provides information for students and the general public on the nutritive values of oats, farm production and harvesting information, and links to other authoritative food and nutrition websites.
This course is offered to graduate students and addresses issues regarding ultrafast optics. Topics covered include: Generation, propagation and applications of ultrashort pulses (nano-, pico-, femto-, attosecond pulses); Linear and nonlinear pulse shaping processes: Optical solitons, Pulse compression; Laser principles: Single- and multi-mode laser dynamics, Q-switching, Active and passive mode-locking; Pulse characterization: Autocorrelation, FROG, SPIDER; Noise in mode-locked lasers and its
This course uses the theory and application of atomistic computer simulations to model, understand, and predict the properties of real materials. Specific topics include: energy models from classical potentials to first-principles approaches; density functional theory and the total-energy pseudopotential method; errors and accuracy of quantitative predictions: thermodynamic ensembles, Monte Carlo sampling and molecular dynamics simulations; free energy and phase transitions; fluctuations and tra
Lectures, reading, and discussion of current theory and data concerning the psychology and biology of language acquisition. Emphasizes learning of syntax and morphology, together with some discussion of phonology, and especially research relating grammatical theory and learnability theory to empirical studies of children.
ISKRA Market Research You are required to produce a report outlining the viability of your product idea as a potential business/social enterprise idea. Your report should be no more than 10 pages including the executive summary.
This seminar provides intensive study of texts by two American authors (Herman Melville, 1819-1891, and Toni Morrison, 1931-) who, using lyrical, radically innovative prose, explore in different ways epic notions of American identity. Focusing on Melville's Typee (1846), Moby-Dick (1851), and The Confidence-Man (1857) and Morrison's Sula (1973), Beloved (1987), Jazz (1992), and Paradise (1998), the class will address their common concerns with issues of gender, race, language, and nationhood. Be
How does the global network infrastructure work and what are the design principles on which it is based? In what ways are these design principles compromised in practice? How do we make it work better in today's world? How do we ensure that it will work well in the future in the face of rapidly growing scale and heterogeneity? And how should Internet applications be written, so they can obtain the best possible performance both for themselves and for others using the infrastructure? These are so
