Experimental Design Methods - A Review
Experimental design methods are applied in all phases of the design process and by almost every party involved in the design process. In this paper, we aim to give an overview of the background, applications, and technologies involved. A limited simple metric is introduced for assessing the degree of innovation. Future developments are outlined.

Virtual Educational Resource for the Biosciences (VERB) - Eutherians - standalone HTML files
VERB is an online animal diversity resource designed to accompany undergraduate degrees in the Biosciences. In this package, entitled VERB Eutherians, the groups discussed are the living placental mammals. Contained are a series of web pages outlining the diversity of the eutherians from an evolutionary perspective. The topics of focus are phylogeny (evolutionary history) and functional anatomy, but subjects as wide as genetics, ecology, physiology, and developmental biology are discussed where
Indigenous Spiritual Wellbeing - Our history - Primary health care
A learning resource that explores the history of primary health care including beginnings, developments and significant declarations, goals and aims.
This unit covers the correct procedures for harvesting stock in the aquaculture industry. Activity 1 focuses on what needs to be done to prepare for harvesting. Includes checking the harvesting schedule, weather forecasts, pond conditions and conditions that affect harvesting. Also includes choosing appropriate harvesting equipment and protective clothing for harvesting. Activity 2 covers monitoring stock behaviour and reporting non-standard behaviour to the supervisor. U
SP.721 D-Lab: Development, Dialogue and Delivery (MIT)
D-Lab is a year-long series of courses and field trips. The fall class provides a basic background in international development and appropriate technology through guest speakers, case studies and hands-on exercises. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in an IAP field trip to Haiti, India, Brazil, Honduras, Zambia, Samoa, or Lesotho and continue their work in a spring term design class. As part of the fall class, students will partner with community organizations in these count
The design process : document transcript
This is a document about the Design Process HNC In Engineering – Design for manufacture Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). The presentation looks at the design process as applied to practical engineering situations. An overview of design considerations and the basic methodology is given. Each stage of the process is explained and its relevance to modern engineering practice is discussed. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering
Historical skills : dating documents
Explains the different dating conventions employed in historical documents. For example, the system of dating by reference to a religious feast day and the year of the reigning monarch has little in common with the modern calendar. Even where a recognisable date is provided, it may not be what it at first appears.... The resource includes a glossary, bibliography and translation of relevant Latin numbers/phrases. Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.
Ethics and Midwifery Research
A power point presentation providing a lecture and activities that will look at the orgins of modern ethical thinking. It describes the system of ethical governance in the UK and looks to introduce the main ethical research issues and explore some of the dilemmas that researchers face.
Numbers, Symmetries and Groups
This module aims to provide an introduction to axiomatic reasoning in mathematics, particularly in relation to the perspective adopted by modern algebra. Properties of the standard number systems will be developed. The abstract definition of a group will be motivated by a number of concrete examples. Standard results in the theory of groups will be proved rigorously. Applications of group theory in geometry will be stressed.

TALAT Lecture 1100.01: Introduction: Aluminium, a Light Metal
This lecture provides basic information about the history of aluminium, the principles behind the production of primary metal, environmental properties, potential applications, areas of application. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background information about aluminium is needed as an introduction of other subject areas of aluminium application technologies. This lecture is part of the self-contained course "Aluminium in Product Development", which is trea
Ni-Superalloy, exposed microstructure
Following exposure at temperature typical of that found in the modern gas turbine engine, there exist two white phases, one with intergranular distribution and the other smaller particles, apparently randomly distributed. The larger semi-continuous intergranular phase is likely to be either the M23C6 carbide or the deleterious TCP phase, σ. Previous work has concluded that this phase is indeed σ, which is detrimental to mechanical strength, in particular creep life by embrittlement of the grai
21H.466 Imperial and Revolutionary Russia: Culture and Politics (MIT)
At the beginning of the eighteenth century Russia began to come into its own as a major European power. Members of the Russian intellectual classes increasingly compared themselves and their autocratic order to states and societies in the West. This comparison generated both a new sense of national consciousness and intense criticism of the existing order in Russia. In this course we will examine different perspectives on Russian history and literature in order to try to understand the Russian E
Interdisciplinary Science Earth Through Time Student Document
The Earth Through Time module examines our planet in terms of its major systems; the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere and the biosphere, all of which are constantly interacting. The module explores the topic of climate change throughout Earth’s history; climate change is not just a contemporary phenomenon, it has happened in the geological past at times abruptly and catastrophically.
