Internationalising the Curriculum: an annotated bibliography
This annotated bibliography comprises a selection of books, journal articles, conference papers and other resources on the subject of the internationalised curriculum. It has been compiled initially from a library of global sources originally brought together as part of the review of literature in the field, commissioned by the Higher Education Academy in 2006 (Caruana, V. and Spurling, N., 2007). This has been up-dated to include more recent work. The central criterion for selection of material
Giving, Receiving and Learning from Feedback
This is a learning activity about feedback. It examines what feedback is, why it is important and its different forms. It explores the characteristics of effective feedback and skills associated with it. The activity not only takes the dual perspective of giving and receiving of feedback, but also considers the learning opportunities feedback presents. Without learning taking place, feedback is redundant, thus methods which encourage learning are also reviewed. Barriers to effective feedback are
Organització del centre escolar
La finalitat d'aquesta assignatura és mostrar la realitat organitzativa dels centres docents en el seu sentit més ampli i obert, és a dir des del punt de vista de la dinàmica organitzativa i de la gestió de continguts i de persones. I a més facilitar als estudiants la possibilitat de reflexionar i raonar a partir de casos i situacions reals i preparar la seva possible actuació futura en els centres educatius, ja sigui en l'equip directiu, com a docent que forma part del claustre, o com a

9.012 The Brain and Cognitive Sciences II (MIT)
This class is the second half of an intensive survey of cognitive science for first-year graduate students. Topics include visual perception, language, memory, cognitive architecture, learning, reasoning, decision-making, and cognitive development. Topics covered are from behavioral, computational, and neural perspectives.
11.947 Imaging the City: The Place of Media in City Design and Development (MIT)
Kevin Lynch's landmark volume, The Image of the City (1960), emphasized the perceptual characteristics of the urban environment, stressing the ways that individuals mentally organize their own sensory experience of cities. Increasingly, however, city imaging is supplemented and constructed by exposure to visual media, rather than by direct sense experience of urban realms. City images are not static, but subject to constant revision and manipulation by a variety of media-savvy individuals and in
2.062J Wave Propagation (MIT)
This course discusses the Linearized theory of wave phenomena in applied mechanics. Examples are chosen from elasticity, acoustics, geophysics, hydrodynamics and other subjects. The topics include: basic concepts, one dimensional examples, characteristics, dispersion and group velocity, scattering, transmission and reflection, two dimensional reflection and refraction across an interface, mode conversion in elastic waves, diffraction and parabolic approximation, radiation from a line source, sur
1.259J Transit Management (MIT)
This course discusses management methods of relevance to public transportation systems. Topics include strategic planning management, labor relations, maintenance planning and administration, financing, marketing and fare policy, and management information and decision support systems. The course shows how these general management tasks are dealt with in the transit industry and presents alternative strategies. It also identifies alternative arrangements for service provision, including differen
ESD.10 Introduction to Technology and Policy (MIT)
This course explores perspectives in the policy process - agenda setting, problem definition, framing the terms of debate, formulation and analysis of options, implementation and evaluation of policy outcomes using frameworks including economics and markets, law, and business and management. Methods include cost/benefit analysis, probabilistic risk assessment, and system dynamics. Exercises include developing skills to work on the interface between technology and societal issues; simulation exer
14.44 Energy Economics (MIT)
This course explores the theoretical and empirical perspectives on individual and industrial demand for energy, energy supply, energy markets, and public policies affecting energy markets. It discusses aspects of the oil, natural gas, electricity, and nuclear power sectors and examines energy tax, price regulation, deregulation, energy efficiency and policies for controlling emission.
22.01 Introduction to Ionizing Radiation (MIT)
This course provides an introduction to the basic properties of ionizing radiations and their uses in medicine, industry, science, and environmental studies. We will discuss natural and man-made radiation sources, energy deposition and dose calculations, and various physical, chemical, and biological processes and effects of radiation, with examples of their uses, and principles of radiation protection.
11.957 Frameworks of Urban Governance (MIT)
Urban governance comprises the various forces, institutions, and movements that guide economic and physical development, the distribution of resources, social interactions, and other aspects of daily life in urban areas. This course examines governance from legal, political, social, and economic perspectives. In addition, we will discuss how these structures constrain collective decision making about particular urban issues (immigration, education…). Assignments will be nightly readings a
