Medicine Games: Control of the Cell Cycle
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! In this game you are to take on the job as a Cell Division Supervisor. Are you familiar with the different phases in the cell cycle? If not, maybe you should pay extra attention to the image of the cell cycle in the introduction.
This topic starts with a basic introduction to muscles and an image illustrating the possible locations of the different muscle tissues. The three types of muscle tissue are described in more detail. Along with the features of muscle tissue (e.g. contractibility), the functions of these tissues (e.g. support) are discussed.
Good Practice Guide in Question and Test Design
This booklet will provide an introduction to good practice in question and test design. It includes the art of using objective tests to assess some aspects of student learning. At the outset you should be aware that objective tests are just one method of assessment. They are useful for assessing knowledge, comprehension and application and in some circumstances can be used to assess higher order skills such as evaluation and synthesis. They cannot be used to assess creativity, integration of ide
Using Portfolio's for Learning and Assessment - A staff handbook
This resource offers guidance for staff on introducing students to portfolios to be used for learning and assessment. It is based on experience gained while working on an FDTL Project “Promoting the Development of key skills through the use of portfolios” (2002 - 2005). The outlined Portfolio Workshops in this handbook have been developed as a result of the Project activities at Leeds Metropolitan University, but are also supported by the findings from the project as a whole. There are 2 acc
Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge.
