Introduction to Demographic Methods
This course introduces the basic techniques of demographic analysis. Students will become familiar with the sources of data available for demographic research. Population composition and change measures will be presented. Measures of mortality, fertility, marriage and migration levels and patterns will be defined. Life table, standardization and population projection techniques will also be explored.

Principles of Microeconomics
Recognizing that a course in economics may seem daunting to some students, we have tried to make the writing clear and engaging. Clarity comes in part from the intuitive presentation style, but we have also integrated a number of pedagogical features that we believe make learning economic concepts and principles easier and more fun. These features are very student-focused. The chapters themselves are written using a “modular” format. In particular, chapters generally consist of three
The reasons for attrition
This paper focuses on a) to reflect on an approach, decisions and subsequent knowledge with regard to non response and b) to discuss the "attrition survey", rather than discussing the actual results of an overall longitudinal study. This should be linked to the paper "student experiences of enterprise education"
Creating Value within the Nonprofit Sector
This course introduces managers and other professionals working in the nonprofit sector to Value Based Management. The course attempts to establish a common framework for how nonprofit's and non-governmental organizations can apply Value Based Management in such areas as Strategic Planning, Resource Development, Leadership, and Performance Measurement. Course Level: Intermediate - A good understanding of business concepts is useful for fully understanding this course. A review of other Short Cou
Managing Cash Flow
This course provides a concise overview of concepts related to the management of cash flows. Some of the principles taught in this course include measurement of cash flow cycles, cash flow forecasting, and short-term financing. The purpose of this course is to introduce principles and practices related to managing cash flows. Course Level: Beginner to Intermediate - No prior knowledge of cash flow management is required although some understanding of financial management can be helpful. Recommen
A reference and instruction for scientists of all levels. What chemistry software package would be complete without a periodic table? The actual use of this applet in the classroom is quite simple. Simply click on the desired element and data as well as a graphical plot of electron configurations will be displayed. This particular version shows the electronic configuration of the element in the panel on the right. Future versions of this applet will show relative atomic sizes, electronegativitie
11. Low Fertility in Developed Countries (Guest Lecture by Michael Teitelbaum)
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Concerns about low fertility have been present in many countries for at least 100 years. A large population was considered essential to national power. But the issue is never simply a shortage of warm bodies: overall the world population has increased dramatically over this period and untold numbers would immigrate, if allowed. The issue is the number of the 'right sort' of people, defined as those having preferred national, religious, racial, eth
Organise personal work priorities and development
This unit covers the knowledge and skills required to organise your own work schedules, monitor and obtain feedback on your work performance, and maintain required levels of competence. Topics include goal-setting, organisation, self-evaluation and professional development.
Mercer Mayer's Little Critter Sings-"The World Goes Round"
From the Animated Video Special, Little Critter sings "The World Goes Round". Little Critter is camping with his dad and takes a walk through the forests and enjoys all that he sees in his world-bugs, grass, dirt, moles, bear, turtle, raccoon, etc. This is a fun song just to share in the classroom but it could also be used as an introduction to a lesson/unit on forest animals and/or nature.

Rise of online media helps youth get engaged in politics
University of Minnesota new media journalism professor Seth Lewis has found that a preference for getting the news online indeed was related to higher levels of political involvement (i.e., voting, contributing money, sharing political information and related activities) both among older and younger adults. More importantly, a preference for online news was significantly stronger for young adults.
1.4 How precise are the measurements? Scientists are always trying to get better and more reliable data. One way of getting a more precise measurement might be to switch to an instrument with a more finely divided scale.

Human activity takes place in two planes, at two levels. Practical activity is present in one of the planes, the other level is occupied by purely cognitive activity. When observing sufficiently long sequences of practical and cognitive activities, one notices transitions between them, which prove true the suspicions of their functional relationship. Because on both of these planes of human activity there is always one and the same element present - an informative element - which on the first pl
This course provides parallel treatments of photons, electrons, phonons, and molecules as energy carriers, aiming at fundamental understanding and descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes from nanoscale continuously to macroscale. Topics include the energy levels, the statistical behavior and internal energy, energy transport in the forms of waves and particles, scattering and heat generation processes, Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws, deviation from classica
