Imagination, Creativity And Entrepreneurship
This is a course about the courage to create, and to risk making mistakes in the quest for ideas that lead to a true innovation of a product, service or process. Creativity is the central focus, which might be defined as "the application of a person's mental ability and curiosity to discover something new. The act of relating previously unrelated things." More specifically, we are concerned with capitalist creativity, which means that solutions must be generated that are profitable and reflect b
Small Business and Entrepreneurship
The objective of this course is to teach you to apply the skills you have learned in the functional areas toward the goal of starting a business, i.e., becoming an entrepreneur. Working in teams, you will learn to identify, conceptualize, plan, finance, launch, manage and harvest new ventures. Finally, intrapreneurship, the application of entrepreneurial methods of management to established organizations, will also be discussed. Class discussion, readings, case studies, guest speakers, interview

Shinzo Abe’s so-called “three arrows” of monetary stimulus, fiscal stimulus, and structural reform, have crippled the Japanese economy, writes Andy Sirkis. This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Keith Hocker.
This Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) has been designed as a resource for educators planning to incorporate technologies in their teaching and learning activities. HETL has been developed for a workshop delivered to Athabasca University faculty and reflects several years work with Peter at the Learning Technologies Centre at University of Manitoba. Distance and online universities such as Athabasca, are well positioned to play a bridging role between tradition and emergenc
This learning manual proposes exercise-based games for children aged 0-2 years and symbolic, rules-based, language and socialisation games for children aged 2-7 years.
This course for facilitators is designed to contribute toward the reconstruction of education systems through the promotion and establishment of safe, secure and supportive learning environments where quality education is widely accessible to all learners including the broader community.
The learning objectives of this lesson are: Identify what to do in the event of a home fire. Identify the importance of a home fire escape plan.
The learning objectives of this lesson are: Identify fire hazards in the home. Learn the importance of correcting home fire safety hazards.
This guide suggests how to read aloud to children, develop their listening and speaking skills, teach about letters and numbers, and build their background knowledge and thinking skills. The booklet is designed to help people who work with young children create rich learning environments.
The Blender 3D Design course is intended to offer students an introduction to the world of computer generated 3-D modeling and animation. As an introductory course, it provides a basic understanding of the skills and techniques employed by 3-D designers in a wide range of applications. This course updates and replaces Three-Dimensional Modeling, Animation and Rendering Using Blender 3D Software (2006), previously on Tufts OCW. In this course we will explore basic mesh modeling, applying textures
This seminar plus field work in Costa Rica is designed to give students with an in-depth understanding of tropical ecology and conservation biology. More specifically it provides students the opportunity to (1) read the original literature, (2) give oral presentations, (3) design and write a research proposal, and (4) gain hands-on research experience in Costa Rica. Here are what the students say are the highlights of the course: 1. Learning how to write a proposal and executing that project. 2.
Multimedia Training Videos is a series of free learning videos to show anyone interested in learning packages like Macromedia Director. This video is an introduction to Video in Director.
Students learn the connections between the science of sound waves and engineering design for sound environments. Through three lessons, students come to better understand sound waves, including how they change with distance, travel through different mediums, and are enhanced or mitigated in designed sound environments. Students are introduced to audio engineers who use their expert scientific knowledge to manipulate sound for the production of music and film. They learn how the invention of the
Simple machines are devices with few or no moving parts that make work easier, and which people have used to provide mechanical advantage for thousands of years. Students learn about the wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw and pulley in the context of the construction of a pyramid, gaining insights into tools that have been used since ancient times and are still important today. Through numerous hands-on activities, students imagine themselves as ancient engineers building a pyra
Uncountable times every day with the merest flick of a finger each one of us calls on electricity to do our bidding. What would your life be like without electricity? Students begin learning about electricity with an introduction to the most basic unit in ordinary matter, the atom. Once the components of an atom are addressed and understood, students move into the world of electricity. First, they explore static electricity, followed by basic current electricity concepts such as voltage, resista
In this activity, students work with specified materials to create aqueduct components that will transport 2 liters of water across a short distance in their classroom. The goal is to build an aqueduct that will supply Aqueductis, a Roman city, with clean water for private homes, public baths, and glorious fountains.
In this unit, students learn the basics about weather and the atmosphere. They investigate materials engineering as it applies to weather and the choices available to us for clothing to counteract the effects of weather. Students have the opportunity to design and analyze combinations of materials for use in specific weather conditions. In the next lesson, students also are introduced to air masses and weather forecasting instrumentation and how engineers work to improve these instruments for at
