Plan for minimal Environment Impact Practices
This unit is about planning for minimal environmental impact. It is of a practical nature - you will need to show your understanding of the unit competencies in practical ways, that is, in the field and over a period of time. It covers the knowledge and skills to plan outdoor activities to ensure that minimal environmental impact occurs. At the end of your study, you should understand key ecological concepts and identify sources and types of environmental impact. You will become aware of land ma
Teams in the workplace - Working in a team
An introduction to team skills required by lab technicians working in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers the different types of teams found in the workplace.
Determine control mechanisms and corrective actions for food safety hazards
The monitoring system within a food safety program indicates whether the critical control point is under control. It provides feedback that the product is being produced safely. The main types of monitoring are visual inspections, time and temperature measurements, chemical measurements and microbial measurements. When it is determined that a critical control point has not been controlled during production, corrective action must be taken to overcome the problem and bring
The multimedia designer Jacob introduces a number of key concepts about digital imaging, photography and digital video including file types for specific applications (bitmaps, jpegs, gifs, tifs etc), bit depth, resolution, compresssion,video and dvd, connectivity, video legal colours, image scanning, health and safety and asset managment while working with digital images, video and or multimedia.
Control access to and exit from premises - Manage people and vehicles
This tasks is about checking for people to enter and exit premises. Students are required to check four types of ID.
Maintain cutting equipment
Identify the different types of cutting machines, and when it's best to use each one in the process of constructing a garment.
Draw and use simple maps, plans and drawings
This Unit of Competency focuses on how to read and interpret maps, plans and drawings and prepare a simple map or plan. It contains information, activities and suggested assessment tasks that enable learners to understand the basic features of a map, such as legends, identify different types of maps, including topographical maps, and use essential map-reading and field skills, such as using a compass.
Learning about Users from Observation
Many approaches and systems for recommending information, goods, or other kinds of objects have been developed in recent years. In these systems, machine learning methods are often used that need training input to acquire a user interest profile. Such methods typically need positive and negative evidence of the user’s interests. To obtain both kinds of evidence, many systems make users rate relevant objects explicitly. Others merely observe the user’s behavior, which yields positive evidence
Conservation and biodiversity
Dr. Richard Field research interests lie in conservation, biodiversity and the forces that structure ecological communities. In this podcast, Dr Field from the School of Geography compares and contrasts his experiences as a researcher in national parks in Honduras and Indonesia, and the different types of ecological communities he has studied, and goes on to introduce the emerging field of conservation bio-geography.
Bleeding in Early Pregnancy
1 in 4 women will experience an episode of bleeding during pregnancy. We look at the differential diagnosis in this situation, with a particular focus on the different types of miscarriage.
The Full Blood Count
A haematology resource used for Year 3 undergraduate medicine. Curriculum dependencies of taking a blood sample and types of blood cells and their functions. It is used for self-directed learning for 200-300 students per year and is non-credit bearing.
Salt marsh dynamics
Types of marsh shore, models for sedimentation, and the features and ecology of mangroves are outlined in this presentation.
Values and Motivations (Careers)
This activity is designed to help students think about what is important to them in a job, by completing tasks in which they examine their personal values and what factors motivate or de-motivate them at work. The tasks are designed to prompt students to think more broadly about their values and motivations, and not to be confined by their current work situation. In reflecting on their values and motivations, students will be in a position to consider the extent to which their values and motiv
Purchasing Session Outline
PowerPoint Prenetation - Part Eight of Greening Business - Purchasing policies within an organization can play a major part in an organization’s overall environmental impact. Purchasing decisions may range from the sourcing of raw materials for manufacturing through to purchasing of less environmentally harmful cleaning products for use in offices. Purchasing decisions have been traditionally made almost entirely on economic grounds, however, increasingly social, ethical and environmental fa
Research Methods: Qualitative versus Quantitative Approaches to Gathering Evidence
This is one of a series of audio podcasts that addresses issues relating to approaches to gathering evidence when conducting organisational research.This OER discusses some of the issues for consideration when deciding whether qualitative or quantitative approaches are likely to be most appropriate for answering different types of research questions.
Measurement and Control - Learning Package
This is a packaged Learning Activity that provides an introduction to measuring metrics that management have responsibility for. It will explore the metrics and tools that can be used to measure 4 perspectives within the business environment based on the balanced scorecard model by Kaplan and Norton. The balanced scorecard will be used as a basic model to illustrate the different types of measurement that can be taken for different elements in the business. It will provide a number of opportunit

Bone structure and function
This topic begins with the primary functions of bone and explores the structure, showcasing anatomical images of the femur as an example. A diagrammatical overview of a bone cross-section is shown and bone structure is explored by describing the bone matrix and its composition along with its functions. A brief overview of the different types of bone cells and their relevant functions are highlighted.
