SP.259 Information and Communication Technology in Africa (MIT)
This is a discussion-based, interactive seminar on the development of information and communication technology in Sub-Saharan Africa. The students will seek to understand the issues surrounding designing and instituting policy, and explore the possible ways in which they can make an impact on information and communication technology in Africa.
From Atoms to Quarks
Electron waves confined by electric attraction to the nucleus help resolve the dilemma of the atom and account for the periodic table of the elements. Nucleons themselves obey a kind of period table, following inner rules that lead to the idea of quarks.

4.144 Architectural Design, Level II: New Orleans Studio (MIT)
The project for this studio is to design a demonstration project for a site near the French Quarter in New Orleans. The objectives of the project are the following: To design more intense housing, community, educational and commercial facilities in four to six story buildings. To explore the "space between" buildings as a way of designing and shaping objects. To design at three scales - dwelling, cluster and overall. To design dwellings where the owners may be able to help build and
Legoline: An innovation in the teaching of systems engineering
With support from the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre (EDC) has developed a new Graduate module in Systems Engineering, combining informal talks on a wide range of practical issues with hands-on sessions investigating the design of a pallet handling line. Simple calculations, Discrete Event Simulation (DES) and a Lego Mindstorms model - "Legoline" - are all used to illustrate the challenges faced by engineers designing real-life systems.

Internationalising the Curriculum: an annotated bibliography
This annotated bibliography comprises a selection of books, journal articles, conference papers and other resources on the subject of the internationalised curriculum. It has been compiled initially from a library of global sources originally brought together as part of the review of literature in the field, commissioned by the Higher Education Academy in 2006 (Caruana, V. and Spurling, N., 2007). This has been up-dated to include more recent work. The central criterion for selection of material

Michael Mauboussin, "The Success Equation:Untangling Skill and Luck"
Description: What role, exactly, do skill and luck play in our successes and failures? Some games, like roulette and the lottery, are pure luck. Others, like chess, exist at the other end of the spectrum, relying almost wholly on players' skill. In his provocative book, Michael Mauboussin untangles the intricate strands of skill and luck, defines them, and provides useful frameworks for analyzing their relative contributions. He offers concrete suggestions for how to put these insights to work
