ICT-enhanced Teacher training for Lifelong Competence
In this paper we are giving an example of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can enhance the process of Teacher training, and how this can be used for Lifelong Competence Development of teachers. We show how one particular methodology for teaching and training soft skills can be further enhanced by the use of ICT. We show how the use of Learning Design centred software platform for lifelong competence development can enhance the in-service training of teachers.

Physics for Humanists
Physics for Humanists is intended for those who are intellectually and emotionally curious but do not intend to specialize in the natural sciences. The course covers facts and concepts of classical and modern physics; eminent scientists and the emotions that have impelled them; nuclear energy and nuclear bombs; and the interaction, both constructive and destructive, between science and society.
Security Paradox - A Public Address by General Martin E. Dempsey || Institute of Politics
This Forum, co-sponsored by the National Security Fellows, featured the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E. Dempsey. General Dempsey began his address by challenging the students in attendance to serve and support their country in any capacity. General Dempsey focused his address on what he called the "security paradox." The paradox is that on the one hand, the U.S. remains a dominant international force while violence is at an evolutionary low, but on the other hand, the po

This is a music video about the people of Australia that illustrates both modern and historical peoples of the country.
To develop an understanding of modern industrial technologies that clean up and prevent air pollution, students build and observe a variety of simple models of engineering pollutant recovery methods: scrubber, electrostatic precipitator, cyclone and baghouse. In an associated literacy activity, students become more aware of global environmental problems and play a part in their solution by writing environmental action campaign letters.
This paper reports on an empirical study of the interactive means by which a human teacher supported higher-order, musical thinking in learners. The aim of the work presented here was to create guidelines on how to make practical use of empirical research in teaching agent development. The research overview given in the introduction is followed by an illustrative example of mentoring interactions in musical learning. An elaboration of a musical education problem is then given and a description o
The International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior's (IAVCEI) website advocates its research in volcanology and closely related disciplines as well as its work to mitigate volcanic disasters. After learning about the history of the organization, users can discover the many projects undertaken by the commissions including a volcanic eruption database and research involving the chemistry of volcanic gases. Researchers can learn about possible funding opportunities a
Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH) Web site currently features museum-sponsored research on the phylogeny of Madagascar's living Carnivora. Previously thought to represent two to four separate lineages, the island's carnivores are now known to have descended from a single species. These findings, recently published in the journal Nature, are presented in the FMNH Web site as a 4-page press release that should appeal to general readers as well as interested researchers.
This website on the Natural History of the Northwoods was created by Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) enthusiast Earl J.S. Rook. The Flora and Fauna sections are the main features of the site as the Earth and Sky sections are awaiting future development. The Flora section of the site is well organized and extensive, including subsections on Ferns and Fern Allies, Aquatic Plants, Trees, Terrestrial Herbs, and others. Many of the individual flora species link to great photos and detai
"The goal of this NSF funded project is to produce a trial set of materials that can be used in physical chemistry courses to more tightly connect the topics introduced in available texts to the realm of modern chemical research." Six modules are currently available at this website, with four more planned by 2006. Each module supplies a reference to a chemistry article, background information, sample questions to stimulate students to think critically about the subject matter, and additional sam
This site invites students to take the special agent challenge, spend a day in the life of an FBI employee, follow a case through the FBI lab, learn about investigations throughout the world, see specially trained dogs that locate bombs and drugs, and read about the history of the FBI.
