"Studying here gave me the confidence to start my own business," Tony Wheeler (MSc05), Founder of LonelyPlanet, explains in the School's new TV adverts which launched in October 2009 and run on CNN EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Don Sull, Professor of Management Practice in Strategic and International Management, shares four market opportunities that flexible and agile managers can seize in a downturn
Many students, especially students with limited English language skills, have difficulties determining the difference between narrative and expository texts. This unit will use vignettes written by Peace Corps Volunteers serving in Lesotho and Madagascar to compare these types of texts. As final products, students will write both a narrative essay and an expository essay. This unit was piloted with high school second language learners.
In this lesson students will compare and make distinctions among 5 alternative fuels. They will understand the impact of different types of fuel on: a. the environment b. lifestyle c. the economy/personal finances of car choices. They will also use critical thinking skills to support multi-step decision-making for buying a car.
General Learning Objectives for Immunology 1. To understand the structural and genetic basis of diversity and specificity of immunoglobulins and T cell receptors. 2. To understand the utility of antibodies in many clinical tests for proteins, hormones, etc. 3. To understand the events that hallmark the antigen-independent and antigen-dependent phases of B cell differentiation. 4. To understand the diversity of MHC molecules, and how that diversity differs from immunoglobulin and T cell rece
The materials on this page represent a curriculum for teaching effective patient communication to dentistry students. These techniques could be useful for other healthcare providers, as well: medical students, nursing students, public health providers, and in-practice health care providers. There are two main types of resources: performance keys and videos. Performance Keys are text documents that articulate key patient interaction skills, and give examples of more and less effective techniques
In the Tropical edition of the Natural Inquirer you will learn about different types of plants and animals. The tropics are the home of a variety of biomes, or regions with different kinds of vegetation and other life. Tropical biomes are largely defined by the amount of rainfall they get. In the tropics, you might find rain forests, dry forests, shrub lands, tropical plains called savannahs, and deserts. Scientists working in the International Institute of Tropical Forestry, or IITF, conducted
There are three lessons in this group. The first two provide students with the opportunity to learn about the circulatory system and conduct an experiment where they take their pulses after different types of activity. During the third lesson, a pediatrician explains how she checks a patient's heart and the ways that a healthy lifestyle (food and exercise) can keep students' hearts healthy.
This site introduces the work of basic biomedical scientists -- scientists who seek answers to key biological questions like how cells talk to each other, how biological machines fold into their active shapes, and how genes are regulated. Topics include Alzheimer's disease, anthrax, flu vaccines, Nobel Prize winners, and more.
This brochure explores the smallest form of life: the cell. Discover what's happening inside your body. See basic structures that let your cells accomplish their tasks. Learn about functions shared by virtually all cells: making fuel and proteins, transporting materials, and disposing of wastes. Find out how cells specialize to get their unique jobs done -- and how cells reproduce, age, and die.
This site profiles scientists doing cutting-edge medical research. Learn about the work of a biologist who is tracking thousands of genes in living cells, an anesthesiologist whose questions about body temperature led to improvements for surgery patients, a natural de-icer, healing wounds with air, and more. Read the website or order the free magazine.
This is a collection of short reports on recent biological discoveries. Each report is about 400 words, and is based on a discovery recently published peer-reviewed literature. It incorporates interactive tutorials that show how bioinformatics tools are used as a part of the research process. Past topics include how salmonella gains entry into human cells, new clues on Alzheimer's pathology, how living organisms tune in to the time of day, and many more.
We run events throughout the year, giving potential mature students the chance to visit Cambridge, find out more, and have their questions answered. Watch our video, to hear from some of the participants of the Mature Students' Summer School. You can find further information about events for mature students further down the page.

In the Environmental Catalysis Module, a joint project with the Institute for Environmental Catalysis at Northwestern University, students learn what a catalyst is and become aware of the use of catalysis to promote environmental protection. Besides introducing the concept of catalysis, the module also focuses other issues such as catalytic selectivity, specificity, poisoning, condition optimization, and waste minimization. The first activity of the module introduces the concept of catalysis in
This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation covers the origin of basaltic magmas. Two types of basalt in ocean basins are compared (tholeiitic and alkaline). Composition of mantle-derived magmas and sources of mantle material are listed. Discussion of how the mantle melts, touching on the contribution of volatiles, pressure and composition, is included. The slide show includes figures comparing enriched vs. depleted mantle. This resource is part
This 11-slide PowerPoint presentation presents a short succession of schematic diagrams illustrating the structural evolution of anorthosites. The slides discuss the relative abundance of rare earth elements, describe six types of anorthosite occurrence, and contain pictures showing anorthositic texture. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html
This 24-slide PowerPoint presentation describes the classification of metamorphic rocks using texture and composition. Foliation, lineation, cleavage, schistosity, gneissose structure, hornfels, and granofels are discussed. Specific metamorphic rock types and modifying terms (porphyroblastic, spotted, augen, para-, ortho-) are defined and photographs of some are provided. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html
This website presents an easily accessible data set of Mossbauer spectra of minerals. This data set was compiled from minerals collected from various sources here on Earth for comparison to minerals thought to exist on Mars. The site provides information about various types of spectroscopy, with an emphasis on Mossbauer spectroscopy. The website features data, tutorials, mineral descriptions, and databases.

This hands-on activity gives students the opportunity to use skills and concepts developed in a unit on cells with an unknown organism. They are asked to design and complete a controlled experiment which attempts to answer a simple question about the slime mold Physarum. The activity includes background information, preparation time, abstract, materials, procedure, evaluation, and additional thoughts. The activity is part of The Access Excellence Fellows Collection, an archive of the favorite cl
