Lecture 25 - 5/27/2009
Physicians, genetics and life insurance
Par contraste avec de nombreux pays européens qui ont clarifié leur position vis-à-vis la génétique et l’assurance vie, le Canada en est encore à établir la sienne. Toute initiative en ce domaine doit être basée sur une compréhension des mécanismes de l’assurance vie, de la nature de l’information génétique, de l’historique du débat au sujet de la génétique et de l’assurance vie au Canada et, finalement, des raisons pour lesquelles un groupe de travail canadien a décid
Scaffolding: A model for learner support in an online teaching environment
'In the design of online teaching environments, considerable attention has been paid to the nature of the interface and to the streamlining of activities for learners to engage with. Much less attention has been given however to the nature of the learner support system that is created for novice users learning online. Support systems are essential for learners to engage in the processes of learning and need to be developed in response to needs. It is also imperative that a range of support syste

Take a Technology Inventory
This activity prepares students to watch the film, "Local Voices, Global Visions," by having them examine the presence of technology in their own lives. Students should be familiar with the use of spreadsheets and have a basic working definition of information and communication technology (ICT), using the Understanding page or from their own initial research on the subject. This activity is part of a series of lessons surrounding the film, "Local Voices, Global Visions."
In His/Her Shoes
Students will research the laws around tobacco of another part of the world and write a brief narrative from the perspective living in the environment created by those regulations.
Spill Tools is a collection of three tools you can use to assess how effectively you can recover, remove, or disperse spilled oil using: - mechanical equipment, such as skimmers, to remove oil from the sea surface. - in situ burning, to burn off freshly spilled oil. - chemical dispersants, to disperse the spilled oil throughout the water column. Spill Tools was designed to help you to complete tasks like: - selecting and staging response equipment, such as skimmers, fire boom, and dispersant

Is EU Criminal Law a Threat to British Justice?
In eurosceptic circles it is widely stated that European criminal justice threatens to undermine the basic values of the common law, and this is put forward as a reason why the UK should 'withdraw from the Europe'. This argument was recently put forward by Nigel Farage, of the UK Independence Party, in an article he wrote for The Independent (10 November 2013). In this presentation Professor John Spencer - one of the authors of the Corpus Juris project - subjects the argument to analysis. Profe
When I started teaching this subject I found three kinds of texts. There were applications books that avoid proofs and cover the linear algebra only as needed for their applications. There were advanced books that assume that students can understand their elegant proofs and know how to answer the homework questions having seen only one or two examples. And, there were books that spend a good part of the semester multiplying matrices and computing determinants and then suddenly change level to wo
NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?
In NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?, students will learn about microgravity. They will be introduced to combustion science and the importance of fire safety on the International Space Station. Students will also learn how chemistry plays an important role in microgravity research. They will observe NASA engineers and scientists using measuring, ratios, and graphing to analyze data. Grades 6-8.
Improving Literary Understanding Through Classroom Conversation Booklet
Effective literature instruction develops reading, writing, thinking, and other literacy skills -- but that is easier said than done.

Fred Colgan & Assitan Sylla Traore, "Creating Lasting Solutions through innovative Cookstove Tech"
One out of every three people on earth cooks over open fires--at a cost that is both staggering and unsustainable. Such cooking practices produce more pollution than all automobiles on the planet, cause 4.3 million deaths each year from smoke-related illnesses, lead to over-harvesting that causes deforestation rates of up to 11% per year, and put and women and children at risk of life-altering burns and blindness while cooking, and rape, abduction and murder while out gathering fuel. The team a
