Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended

The Kuniyoshi project is an online catalogue of the works of Japanese artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861). Based on a similar project of the works of Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865), by Horst Graebner, which is referenced here, it is a subject catalogue of many of Kuniyoshi's woodblock prints. Organised by subject, such as warriors and historical people; animal and plant prints; children; landscapes; women; sumo wrestler prints; and fan prints, the website provides detailed information about each
11.493 Legal Aspects of Property and Land Use (MIT)
This course is designed to offer an advanced introduction to key legal issues that arise in the area of property and land-use in American law, with a comparative focus on the laws of India and South Africa. The focus of the course is not on law itself, but on the policy implications of various rules, doctrines and practices which are covered in great detail. Legal rules regulating property are among the most fundamental to American, and most other, economies and societies. The main focus is on A
Tom McCall and Oregon's Environmental Legacy
Oregon Governor Tom McCall's pioneering fight to clean up the state's waterways and to control development in the late 1960s still resonates today. At the Nov. 11 Corvallis Science Pub, Oregon State historian Bill Robbins will discuss the significance of McCall's leadership. Robbins will also show McCall's famous documentary, Pollution in Paradise, which aired on KGW-TV in 1962. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6 p.m. in the Old World Deli located at 341 SW Second St. in Corvallis. It i
Teachers Demonstrate Effective Descriptive Feedback to Their Class Using Moon Journals-Part 1 of 2
Using appropriate and respectful vocabulary, two teachers share their own moon journals and give each other feedback. Students deepen their appreciation of the value of descriptive feedback and gain insight into how to give and receive descriptive feedback. They reflect on the demonstration and co-create success criteria for effective feedback sessions. This is a great teaching resource to enhance a writing curriculum and to create a literacy rich environment. The teachers provide
Israel: the Arab spring, domestic politics and the future of the Arab-Israeli peace process [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Ahron Bregman | The Arab spring has put on hold the possibility of reaching peace between Israel and Syria, thus leaving the Israeli-Palestinian peace track as the only game in town. At the same time, international efforts, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry to help Israelis and Palestinians negotiate their differences are unlikely to end the occupation and deliver a Palestinian state. The latter could only be achieved, as Ahron Bregman will argue, if three elements come toge

Faculty-Perceived Barriers of Online Education
Abstract: At institutions of higher learning, there is an increased demand and need for online courses. However, the number of faculty developing and teaching these courses does not match the growth in online education. The purpose of this study was to determine the perceived barriers to online teaching experienced by various faculty groups at a public institution located in the southeastern United States using a new survey instrument, which was developed from recent research findings. This stud

Designing, CAD and CAD
The general aim of our discussion is to analyze what has been changed in design process according to introducing the computers technology. For the better understanding of the design process evolution, we should precisely define start point - the traditional design process.Let's treat it as an iteration game between a designer and user. If we assume that the designing base is a reductive strategy, we can define six stages of it: 1.) To define a need; 2.) To formulate a task; 3.) To synthesize a d
