A note on organizational learning and knowledge sharing in the context of communities of practice
The knowledge management (KM) literature emphasizes the impact of human factors forsuccessful implementation of KM within the organization. Isolated initiatives for promoting learning organization and team collaboration, without taking consideration of the knowledge sharing limitations and constraints can defeat further development of KM culture. As an effective instrument for knowledge sharing, communities of practice (CoP) are appearing to overcome these constraints and to foster human collabo

First steps and second thoughts on method: beginning to research the learning of new
This paper is an account of our progress in addressing the challenge of developing a quasi-experimental method of assessing early professional learning (EPL), based on a model from data gathered by teachers as ethnographers in their own schools. From the early doubts and debates in internal discussions about the research design, we present in this paper the steps taken so far and our thoughts about these. Progress on the five indicators of early professional learning in the proposal are describe

Using Netbooks and pre-loaded Automotive Training Software (ATT) with Students - Tutor Interview This video records tutor views on the success of using Netbooks with pre-loaded learning materials (ATT Automotive Package - www.atttraining.com). The package has previously been in use within the College but having it pre-loaded on learner held devices has made a significant difference in both the level of independent learning and test results for the year

Steel Plate Rolling for Engineering Students @ Liverpool University
This short video shows how an interactive plate rolling simulation, freely available at www.steeluniversity.org, was used with 2nd year Engineering undergraduates at the University of Liverpool. The students, working in groups, had to compete to supply plates for an offshore wind turbine tower at the correct specification and at the lowest possible cost. From the customer's specification, the students had to: * calculate the required plate sizes for each section of the tower * select an appropri
Dickinson College - Community College Partnership .wmv
Dickinson College's Community College Partnership Program allows students to reduce tuition costs while earning a four-year degree at a top liberal-arts college. Students enroll in a special honors program at a participating community college. If they maintain a 3.25 GPA, they can transfer all of their credits to Dickinson. There, they can earn a bachelor's degree after just two years on campus. In this video, you'll meet Darrell, Nadia and Minh, three current students who are taking advantage
Bachelor's in Public Safety Administration - St. Petersburg College
http://www.youtube.com/user/StPetersburgCollege About St. Petersburg College: In 1927, St. Petersburg College (then known as St. Petersburg Junior College) became Florida's first private, non-profit, two-year school of higher learning located in downtown St. Petersburg. Full accreditation followed in 1931 and in 1948 SPC became a public college. In June 2001, SPJC officially became St. Petersburg College when Florida's governor signed legislation making it the first community college in Flor
Taylor on the State of the Economy
John Taylor of Stanford University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the state of the economy. Is the economy recovering? What policies have helped and hurt? Taylor gives his views on both monetary and fiscal policy including the stimulus package passed last year, and current Fed policy. The conversation closes with a discussion of the global economy, particularly Poland and its recent success in avoiding recession.
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
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unif
Longitudes and Latitudes
This year we take a look at Armstrong's third annual art exhibit "Longitudes and Latitudes: Stories from Abroad."
