BIO 151: Applied Biology – Developing Creative Learning Partnerships with Blackboard VISTA™
Teaching large, undergraduate, non-major biology courses represents an enormous hurdle for any instructor. Effectiveness in this endeavor requires innovative techniques addressing multiple activities including active student engagement, automated quiz and exam mechanisms, and accurate record keeping. In this particular case study, students were asked to "partner" with the instructor and produce multimedia presentations of important course concepts. Learning management software (Blackboard VIST
1.2 Hints before you start
Handling statistical data is an essential part of psychological research. However, many people find the idea of using statistics, and especially statistical software packages, extremely daunting. This unit takes a step-by-step approach to statistics software through seven interactive activities. No statistics software is needed.

What is Science for?
What is science for, what good does it do and should it do good? In this lecture, Sulston and Harris will attempt to identify some of the most urgent ethical and regulatory problems raised by contemporary science, and suggest some possible solutions. They will discuss some key cutting edge scientific problems, and debate how we can assess their impact. Where do the significant ethical and regulatory dilemmas for science lie? Are we worrying about the right things? They will also address the cru
Guided Reading Example
This six minute how-to video shows a teacher/parent using a guided reading session and some of the question types you could ask. The video quality is shaky and some of the questions don't appear to have a pattern, but the video does offer some insights about this method.
Understanding the Equity Premium Puzzle
Professor Constantanides is one of the most prominent and creative research scholars in the field of financial economics, in particular of theories of asset and derivatives pricing. He will present theoretical and empirical research on three classes of generalizations of the standard neoclassical model and will discuss their contribution towards a better understanding of equity risk premium.
