Thomas Pederson: Responding to the Climate Change Challenge
Thomas Pedersen Professor and Director of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions University of Victoria, B.C. This lecture is part of SFU's 2011 global warming seminar series "Global Warming: A Science Perspective". Regardless of one's perspective the effects of global warming are a quantifiable set of environmental results. That is why the SFU Dean of Science Office invited some of the world's leading scientists to present results of their research in this six-part series of talks. Th
SFU Bhangra Flash Mob
SFU Bhangra students surprise unsuspecting Canucks fans by performing a flash mob outside Rogers Arena on April 7, 2011.
SeaWiFS: The Effect of the Congo on the Atlantic
By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon. Until now, scientists have only had a continuous record of photosynthesis on land. But following three years of continual data collected by the SeaWiFS instrument, NASA has gathered the first record of photosynthetic productivity in

Introduction to Information Retrieval
This lecture is going to let the students master the necessary basics of information seeking during lectures and practices not provided by chief librarians but by teachers of specialized fields. The practices are worked out with the cooperation of the librarians.
Quality in Healthcare, Economy, Society and System
This course comprises omnibus lectures provided by the faculty staff with the school of public health. In this class, health information literacy that is based on epidemiologic principles and evidence-based medicine is introduced with presenting examples.
This course picks up the historical process leading to statistical mechanics, which is an important branch of modern physics. The lecture must also be very interesting even for the students who do not necessarily need statistical mechanics in their major but want to enjoy a part of essence of modern physics.
Research Protocol and Research Management
This is a special course for Master of Clinical Research in School of Public Health.We present Research Protocol to clarify clinical questions in order to enhance the quality of the research and pursue the possibility of Research Protocol through discussions.
This course is designed to help the students acquire a situated and contextualized knowledge framework in the domain of quantum mechanics. Embedded problem solving sessions will help them apply the framework to actual physical systems by developing necessary analytical skills.
Introduction to Dissection
Many health science students do not enroll in undergraduate dissection-based anatomy courses during their pre-professional education. As a result, they are not familiar with dissection instruments and the mechanics of dissection, and are poorly prepared for medical, dental, and allied health science anatomy courses. Thus, the first dissections are very challenging and require extensive help from instructors. This program is designed to alleviate those deficits. It serves as an introduction to di
Irish Counties - Quiz
A six question quiz testing the pupils' knowledge of Irish counties and major urban centers
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.
Food Chains - by StudyJams
A food chain is made up of three groups: producers, consumers, and decomposers. They interact with each other in an ecosystem to get the energy they need. Learn more about food chains with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
