School of Library Science Renovation
The School of Library and Information Science's recent 14,000-square-foot renovation more than doubles the school's space for teaching, research and student services.
1 Introductory advice
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.
There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this unit is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.

Women in the Workforce
With so many American men involved in the war abroad, there was an extreme shortage of workers at home. For the first time, women entered the workforce in large numbers, learning to do industrial jobs that previously had been done by men. The shipyard "dress code" poster for women reflects the newness of their transition into blue collar work. In the early 1940s, when the photographs in this topic were taken, women working in heavy industry were a novelty and women building warships was groundbr
The Visual Datasets text module discusses the concept of visual learning and presents some suggestions for ways to design learning environments that support students in developing visual literacy skills. Three visual datasets that can be used for problem solving activities in evolution, classification, development, and botany are included: Caminacules: A dataset of imaginary animals that can be used as the basis for a variety of problem-posing and problem-solving activities in evolution, classi
Phylogenetic Investigator (PI) is a software package designed to facilitate creative problem-solving in phylogenetic analysis for the purpose of teaching and learning phylogenetic inference. Users can identify characters and states, polarize characters, and engage in directed-search phylogenetic tree construction. PI also allows the user to * make inferences and represent them one step at a time * vary representational features of their trees (such as angle of divergence and time betwee
The on-line game aims at teaching children how to build safer villages and cities against disasters. Children will learn playing how the location and the construction materials of houses can make a difference when disasters strike and how early warning systems, evacuation plans and education can save lives. Children are the future architects, mayors, doctors, and parents of the world of tomorrow, if they know what to do to reduce the impact of disasters, they will create a safer world. Each scen
Learning Guide: Unit 5 - Good nutrition for learning.
We start off Unit 5 with a story that encourages you to reflect on a key question: Why should the provision of nutritious food for vulnerable children be a central concern for school management? We look to Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory to understand the link between nutrition and learning. His theory suggests that higher cognitive levels of performance depend on basic needs being adequately met. This is backed up by evidence from research that shows the significant benefits to learners who
Distance from a point to a vertical or horizontal line
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the perpendicular distance between a point and a line that is either vertical or horizontal, given the coordinates of the point and the equation of the line. The user can set the orientation of the line and position, along with the location of the point. As the line is altered or the point dragged, the distance is recalculated. The grid and coordinates can be turned on and off. The distance calculation can be turned off t

Professor Sir Michael Marmot in conversation with ANU academics
The economic, social and environmental determinants of human development and health equity. Three internationally renowned speakers discuss how environmental, political, economic and cultural characteristics of societies shape conditions in which people live, work and age. Inequities in these factors play a major role in producing health inequities in Australia, across the Asia Pacific region and globally. If set up well, economic development, trade, working conditions, urbanisation and healt
