International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used

Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras
In June 2009 the Operator Algebras and Applications International Summer School was held in Lisbon. Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.

Marketing communications as a strategic function
Marketing communications help to define an orgaisation's relationship with its customers. This unit emphasises the strategic importance of such communication and its long-term effect on consumers. Communication models can act as a predictive guide, but in the end it is important to recognise the autonomy and unpredictability of consumers.
Children and violence: An introductory, international and interdisciplinary approach
Children are subject to many forms of adversity, for example, poverty or ill health. However, a significant form of adversity experienced by children in many different regions of the world is violence. The form of violence against children varies widely and is hugely disparate. In this unit, the focus is on three different environments where children experience violence: at home, among peers at school and in the wider society (in the context of armed conflicts). The text considers the experience
International Multilateral Negotiation
The seminar focuses on negotiated decision-making in multilateral settings. It will survey process issues such as: the differences between bilateral and multilateral negotiations, the particular problems of negotiations involving a very large number of parties, the complexities of issue-linkage, managed negotiation processes, the role of coalitions, conference diplomacy, treaty negotiations, knowledge in negotiation, etc. These topics will be discussed in the context of case studies dealing with
Ageing and disability: Transitions into residential care

International Development Projects Case Method
This course aims at introducing practical approaches to development projects. Traditional teaching in the classroom based on lectures and exams, often do not address the need for practical, problem-solving skills. The important and crucial ability for effective project management is the ability to think, analyze, discuss, and develop solutions to problems as professionals may encounter in the field. The case method is an effective approach to strengthening these skills.
Rights and justice in international relations
Can the concept of human rights be applied across borders or are rights culturally specific? Is it realistic, or even desirable, to aim at an international system based on universal principles of justice? This unit takes a critical view of the assumption that ‘rights are a good thing’ and looks at the problems that arise when they are applied in the international arena.
Introducing international development management
If you wonder why, when so much development action is taking place, life seems to stay so bad for so many people and you want to be involved in managing development better, this unit is for you. It is a taster of course materials from the Development Management masters programme.
Organization and Evaluation of Brain Function
This module introduces the general external topography of the brain.
