Research on Microorganisms that Live Off Carbon Dioxide
This video produced by Teachers' Domain features Cathy Drennan, Professor of Chemistry and Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cathy explains that her research focuses on microorganisms that live off carbon dioxide, one of several greenhouse gases that are widely believed to accelerate global warming. Specifically, Cathy is investigating how a protein inside these microorganisms converts carbon dioxide into energy. Ultimately, Cathy hopes humans might apply what they learn from
Literary Festival 2013: Beyond the Book: new forms of academic communication [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Miriam Bernard, Dr Kip Jones, Dr Gareth Morris | Academic communication is changing. New emphasis on impact and public engagement, combined with new technologies that allow high quality and easy to use production methods are increasing the possible range of outputs from academic research. This session will hear from three researchers that have used alternative forms for their research dissemination. We will ask what strengths these forms had in comparison to traditional boo

Civil Engineering in Developing Countries
Based on working on exercises on project decision making and planning, the specific context of working abroad in general and in developing countries in particular is illustrated, with regard to socio-cultural aspects, planning and financing of projects, roles of (consulting) engineers and contractors, local materials, techniques and knowledge and environmental issues. Study Goals: define projects in several phases of the project cycle (feasibility, identification, design and construction, evalua
Fashion & sustainability: a snapshot analysis.

Emerging energy and climate policies in the United States are accelerating the pace of technological changes and prompting calls for alternative energy and stricter energy efficiency measures. These trends raise questions about the future demand for fossil fuels, such that some energy-producing nations are reluctant to invest heavily in the expansion of production capacity. The abundance of shale gas resources in North America could allow the United States to utilize more gas in its energy mix a
The Civic Scientist lectures are a series of talks by leading scientists from around the country who have influenced public policy. The series seeks to expose scientists and future scientists to the notion that their roles extend beyond the laboratory. It also gives the Houston community an opportunity to hear leading scientists discuss their fields and careers, with the goal of promoting science and technology as a public priority worthy of federal, state and local funding. Event co-hosted wi
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended
Highlighting the work of emerging scholars, including graduate and postgraduate students, Feminism Now presents groundbreaking contemporary research reflecting new directions and perspectives in feminist scholarship on a wide range of feminist issues and topics.

Your success as an academic will depend heavily on your ability to communicate to fellow researchers in your discipline, to colleagues in your department and university, to undergraduate and graduate students, and perhaps even to the public at large. Communicating well in an academic setting depends not only on following the basic rules that govern all good communication (for example, tailoring the message to meet the needs of a specific audience), but also on adhering to the particular norms of
