Quelle est la nature des expériences vécues par les étudiants en Travaux Pratiques : analyse de d
Le but de cet article est de faire le lien entre les expériences vécues par des étudiants durant les TP et les activités conçues et décrites par lenseignant. Nous tentons donc de déduire la nature des expériences dapprentissage vécues par les étudiants en TP, à partir du discours des enseignants sur ce quils font et ce quils demandent aux étudiants de faire. Nous introduisons un cadre théorique que nous utilisons pour caractériser des Travaux Pratiques : selon leurs buts et
Self-directed learning in simulation-based discovery environments
SIMQUEST1 is an authoring system for designing and creating simulation-based learn-ing environments. The special character of SIMQUEST learning environments is that they include cognitive support for learners which means that they provide learners with support in the discovery process. In SIMQUEST learning environments we try to find the balance between direct guidance of the learning process and sufficient free-dom for learners to regulate the learning process themselves. In this article we de-
Students' adaptation to a new situation:
the design of an experimental procedure
Different studies (Arce and Betancourt, 1997; Séré, 2002) emphasize the importance of the task of experimental procedure design in a learning context. However, the required design is a difficult task for students (Séré and Beney, 1997). Consequently, students are hardly ever allowed to design their own experiment. The study by Tiberghien et al. (2001) showed that to learn how to plan an investigation in order to address a specific question or problem was the least frequent process object

Anxiety Disorders I from the course Clinical Psychology
Clinical Psychology - Fall 2006. This course offers theoretical and empirical approaches to the explanation of psychological dysfunction. The relation between theories of psychopathology and theories of intervention. A critical evaluation of the effects of individual, family, and community approaches to therapeutic and preventive intervention. Thematic focus of the course may change from year to year. See department notices for details.
Introduction to Synchronous Digital Systems - Part II Fall 2007
Machine Structures - Fall 2007. The CS61 series is an introduction to computer science, with particular emphasis on software and on machines from a programmer's point of view. The first two courses considered programming at a high level of abstraction, introducing a range of programming paradigms and common techniques. This course, the last in the series, concentrates on machines and how they carry out the programs you write. The main topics of CS61C involve the low-level system software and th
Cyberinfrastructure for Education and Learning for the Future: a vision and research agenda
This report is the result of a series of workshops organized by the Computing Research Association and the International Society of the Learning Sciences with support from the National Science Foundation (Grant No. REC-0449247). The purpose of the workshop series was to explore where we are in the application of pervasive computing power to education, and where we need to be. In particular, the intent was to develop a map of where NSF can strategically place its resources in creating the learni
A comparison of the plant ecology of two fields
Students will apply random sampling techniques to do a plant population/community/ecosystem study to model how these things are interrelated.
Evaluation of 'Business Enterprise' Module
This report outlines a process of evaluation for a business enterprise module. This exploratory research investigates the impact of 'contextual' based evaluation of enterprise education curricula

Chrom. and Electrophoresis experiments with PDFs
A site with PDF links to several slab gel electrophoresis, HPLC, and GC experiments intended for high school or college audiences. This site may provide a useful starting point for faculty seeking to implement new laboratory experiments based on these techniques. A login (email address) is required, but once logged in, follow the "Free Resources" link to see many instrumental and analytical experiments that have been submitted to the site.
Lecture notes for 1st semester are on titrations, gravimetry, kinetics and electrochemistry (redox). Potentiometry, coulometry, voltammetry, spectroscopic and separation methods are presented during 2nd semester, illustrated with QuickTime animations.

Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.
A Robot in Kindergarten
These thought are the result of work in progress, started in 1999, within the scope of the Trás-os-Montes Digital/SCETAD, project (sub-project: ICEI – Computers in Early Childhood Education Contexts). The work took place in Portuguese kindergarten rooms, with children aged 3, 4, 5 and 6. The ICEI sub-project aims to promote the use of ICT in a playful but pedagogical way, be it free or directed. This use is intended to occur within the scope of activities developed for the micro-spaces of the
