The event will include the presentation of awards to essay, poster and video contest winners in grades 4 through 12 from area schools, who submitted entries reflecting their views o
Oral presentations workshop
This is a powerpoint presentation for an oral presentations workshop for engineering students. The resource accompanies a text document and is part of a workshop programme on 'Key Skills for Engineering Undergraduates'. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Resources Pilot project. The project was funded by HEFCE and the JISC/HE Academy UKOER programme.
15.280 Communication for Managers (MIT)
Writing and speaking skills necessary for a career in management. Students polish communication strategies and methods through discussion, examples, and practice. Several written and oral assignments, most based on material from other subjects and from career development activities. Schedule and curriculum coordinated with 15.311 Organizational Processes class. Restricted to first-year Sloan School of Management graduate students. Students may also enroll in 15.277 Special Seminar in Communicati
7.13 Experimental Microbial Genetics (MIT)
In this class, students engage in independent research projects to probe various aspects of the physiology of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14, an opportunistic pathogen isolated from the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients. Students use molecular genetics to examine survival in stationary phase, antibiotic resistance, phase variation, toxin production, and secondary metabolite production. Projects aim to discover the molecular basis for these processes using both classical and cutti

21M.271 Symphony and Concerto (MIT)
This course is a survey of significant orchestral masterworks composed during three centuries. Listening assignments include 34 symphonies and 24 concertos, composed from the 1720s to the 1990s. Class discussion and oral presentations focus on the works in 18 miniature scores; prior score-reading experience is helpful. Each of the three written papers reviews a concert attended during the term. Since this is a participatory subject, each student will give oral presentations concerning composers
Imagining the City: Memories and cultures in Cape Town
The overriding strength of this book is that it places people, ordinary people at the centre of memory at the centre of historical and contemporary experience and thus at the centre of re-imagining and owning the city of Cape Town It is as they speak what they choose to say what they choose to remain silent about that we become aware of the possibilities of the city if it really did embrace all its people in all of their diversity. From the Foreword by Mike van Graan playwright and arts activist

Toward a Learning Technologies Knowledge Network
The National Science Foundation-funded Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) is designed to be a national resource for stimulating research and development of technology- enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 science, math, engineering and technology learning. The Center, launched at the end $1997, is organized around four themes identg5ed as areas where research is likely to result in major gains in teaching and learning, and sponsors research across disciplines and instit
Structural Awareness for Collaborative Learning Environments
In this paper we propose a peer-to-peer support approach that we call structural awareness support. The structural awareness aims to support the communication that takes place in virtual learning communities. Its emphasis is on revealing the group structure to its participants in order to promote collaborative interactions. This support has been implemented on a forum type tool called Mailgroup. It has been tested twice in different contexts, obtaining initial feedback of its pertinence accordin
