Kidney Sales and Moral Arguments, Janet Radcliffe Richards
The arguments used to justify the conclusion that kidney selling should be prohibited are remarkable. What lies at the root of these emotions, and what relevance should they have in practical decision making? When the kidney selling scandal first erupted in the UK, about fifteen years ago, the response was remarkable for its immediacy and unanimity. Politicians who agreed about almost nothing else joined in rushing to make the practice illegal, and professional bodies instantly declared it out o

Before its presentation at The Frick Collection for the exhibition, van Gogh's Portrait of a Peasant (Patience Escalier) traveled from the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, where it was examined by a team of paintings conservators. The results of this close look at the painting and the details it revealed about the artist's technique are presented in this video. (08:55)
These two Teachers TV programmes explore strategies for incorporating Assessment for Learning (AfL) into the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) classroom, with a particular focus on peer assessment. The message is that, when embedded in practice, this improves pupils’ independence and confidence in knowing how to progress in MFL.
In precedent based design, solutions to problems are developed by drawing from an understanding of landmark designs. Many of the key design operations in this mode are similar to the functionalities present in case based reasoning systems: case matching, case adapting, and case representation. It is clear that a rich case base, encoding all major product types in a design domain would be the centerpiece of such an approach. EDAT (Electronic Design Assistance Tool) is intended to assist in preced
Pélagie M. Beeson, PhD, Professor and Head of Speech, Language and Hearing Science Written language represents a relatively recent cultural invention, and unlike the development of spoken language, literacy requires explicit and prolonged instruction. How is this accomplished? Do unique regions of the brain develop in support of reading and spelling, or are these skills dependent upon brain regions involved in other perceptual and cognitive processes? By studying disorders that arise following
In this month's Provost Corner, Dr. Scarborough highlights the new strategic plan for UT's College of Communication and the Arts. In addition, the April Provost Corner highlights this month's recipient of the Shining Star Award for outstanding student-centeredness.
The Research Informed Practice Site (TRIPS) provides digests of recent educational research that are intended for practitioners. These are organised by themes and key questions to facilitate access. The site includes a glossary of educational terms.
This research captures qualitative data about perceptions of current practice in Primary Modern Foreign Language (PMFL). The national policy context is that, by 2010, all primary school children in England should have an entitlement to learn a foreign language. The main issue is how to sustain current PMFL initiatives and ensure that more primary schools are enabled to offer a foreign language.
Pour la formalisation du lexique et de la grammaire de dialectes étroitement apparentés, il peut se révéler utile de factoriser une partie du travail de modélisation. Les soussystèmes linguistiques isomorphes dans les différents dialectes peuvent alors faire l’objet d’une description commune, les différences étant spécifiées par ailleurs. Cette démarche aboutit à un modèle de grammaire à couches : le noyau est commun à la famille de dialectes, et une couche superficielle dét
Researchers from the University of Sussex and Demos present their findings on how teachers involved in innovative practice may learn from each other. These are based upon qualitative research including a review of research literature, telephone interviews, school visits and in-depth case studies. 120 practitioners were included in the study from a range of schools in England that have tried to transfer good practice within current government programmes.
One of two systematic reviews of research evidence using the EPPI protocol that consider the relationship between grammar teaching and written composition. It concludes that there is insufficient evidence to justify teaching syntax to improve writing.
Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.
