Lost in Translation: Reflecting on a Model to Reduce Translation and Interpretation Bias.
This paper reflects on the language and translation challenges faced and interventions used whilst undertaking cross-cultural public health research in Nepal using translators. Background: The growth in cross-cultural studies and international research highlights the use of translators and the associated challenges for researchers with regard to cultural and linguistic issues when collecting data in one language and analysing and reporting in another. The specific challenges when using translato

Atmospheric Causes of Climate Change PowerPoint Presentation
Atmospheric Causes of Climate Change - PowerPoint Presentation - Part Three of Introduction to the Causes of Climate Change
The Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology studies new physics and exploits novel principles in nanostructured devices with a new functionality. The nanostructures vary from superconductors to biopolymers and are obtained from nature or fabricated with bottom-up methods (starting with atoms or molecules) or top-down techniques (such as electron-beam lithography). The Institute consists of several research groups and a nanofabrication cleanroom facility. With a staff of

Making A Difference: 'Tell Me Again' Core Skills DVD
This DVD offers clear and insightful guidance on performing basic core skills for garment construction with professional techniques. Examples include a step-by-step demo on making a hem and making a variety of seams. It also covers repetitive tasks as threading the machine, and winding the bobbin. The sections are approximately 2 minutes long with a voice over to illuminate the demonstrations. The video was made through CLIP/CETL as a learning resource only for London College of Fashion and Univ

1.978 From Nano to Macro: Introduction to Atomistic Modeling Techniques (MIT)
The objective of this course is to introduce large-scale atomistic modeling techniques and highlight its importance for solving problems in modern engineering sciences. We demonstrate how atomistic modeling can be used to understand how materials fail under extreme loading, involving unfolding of proteins and propagation of cracks. This course was featured in an MIT Tech Talk article.
14.32 Econometrics (MIT)
Introduction to econometric models and techniques, simultaneous equations, program evaluation, emphasizing regression. Advanced topics include instrumental variables, panel data methods, measurement error, and limited dependent variable models. May not count toward HASS requirement.
ESD.123J Systems Perspectives on Industrial Ecology (MIT)
This course examines quantitative techniques for life cycle analysis of the impacts of materials extraction, processing use, and recycling; and economic analysis of materials processing, products, and markets. Student teams undertake a major case study using the latest methods of analysis and computer-based models of materials process.

A Design Approach to Research in Technology Enhanced Mathematics Education
This thesis explores the prospect of a design science of technology enhanced mathematics education (TEME), on three levels: epistemological, methodological and pedagogical. Its primary domain is the identification of scientific tools for design research in TEME. The outputs of this enquiry are evaluated by a demonstrator study in the domain of secondary school mathematics. A review of existing literature establishes a need for a design perspective in TEME research, but at the same time suggests
