Picturing France 1830-1900
Picturing France, 1830–1900 is a learning resource intended primarily for middle and upper grade levels. It takes a multifaceted look at nineteenth-century painting in France, as well as the culture that both produced and is reflected by that art. Organized by region, it provides a quick glance at the setting, history, and cultural life of Paris, the Île-de-France, the mountain areas of Franche-Comté and Auvergne, Normandy, Brittany, and Provence, in addition to a more in-depth examination o
Representation and Delivery of City Models
City modelling has a considerable range of potential applications and because of this, as a field of research has attracted a great deal of attention over recent years. Here we reflect on work already reported by the authors in this area, describe some more recent work on improving the system that had been developed and show an example of how city modelling is being applied in practice as a planning tool in the UK.

"Ecology, Human Rights, and Large Dam Projects in South Asia"
Kathleen Morrison is Professor, Department of Anthropology; Director, Center for International Studies, The University of Chicago. There is little doubt that climate change, deforestation, erosion, and the unequal distribution of natural resources around the globe are of pressing importance everywhere, but these problems are perhaps most acute in Asia, home to 64 percent of the world’s population. Much of this population (1 and 1.3 billion, respectively) is concentrated in India and China, tw

Dr Elisabeth Kelan, Research Fellow at the Lehman Brothers Centre for Women, talks about why women struggle to achieve top levels in business.
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"
This interactive activity adapted from Indiana University features time-lapse videos that reveal the movement and growth of plants in their pursuit of light. Although plants have no choice about where they are rooted, they do respond to environmental cues in ways that enable them to survive. This interactive site includes five videos using time lapsed photography (no audio) with written explanations. The videos include: seed germination and gravity, light and dark responses, twining vines, pl
Celestial navigation is the art and science of finding one's geographic position by means of astronomical observations, particularly by measuring altitudes of celestial objects sun, moon, planets or stars. This activity starts with a basic, but very important and useful, celestial measurement.
Karen Ellis, Research Fellow and Programme Leader from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), speaks on Measuring the Impact of Business on Development. 12 October 2010
Why have both business and the development community become increasingly interested in developing tools to measure the impact of business on development? What approaches have been used or proposed, and what are the limitations of existing tools and the conceptual and practical challenges associated with measureme
People around the world are coming to grips with the potential impacts of climate change.What does climate change mean for our coastlines?
What evidence do we have to suggest that sea-levels will rise? How can we assess the vulnerability of our coastlines
Constantly providing feedback to on-line learning teams is a challenging yet one of the latest and most attractive issues to influence learning experience in a positive manner. The possibility to enhance learning groups participation by means of providing appropriate feedback is rapidly gaining popularity due to its great impact on group performance and outcomes. Indeed, by storing parameters of interaction such as participation behaviour and giving constant feedback of these parameters to the
As the United Nations and worldwide NGOs face the challenges of providing basic services to the survivors of the January 2010 Haitian earthquake, Oxfam’s Raymond Offenheiser scrutinizes what will ultimately be “crucial to the outcome, in the Haitian context, of a successful recovery and rehabilitation by the Haitian people a
This site is intended as a brief introduction to some of the common x-ray diffraction techniques used in materials characterization. It is designed for people who are novices in this field but are interested in using the techniques in their research. Topics include x-ray generation and properties, lattice planes and Bragg's Law, powder and thin film diffraction, texture measurement and pole figures, residual stress measurements, small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), and x-ray crystallography.

This kid-friendly interactive program - targeted to children from Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Even children can learn about food safety! This important subject has been developed into a fun presentation story in two levels, depending on the age of the children you'll be visiting. Both stories feature that germy culprit of unsafe food practices - BAC. (He's the bad guy – Bacteria.) fightbac.org, the website of the Partnership for Food Safety Education (PFSE), is your resource for Fight BAC!
In this unit, aimed at teachers of Physical Education, we begin by looking at some of the common misconceptions relating to fitness and activity levels together with accepted definitions of these concepts. We consider how active young people should actually be, and discuss how PE teachers can ensure they are making an effective contribution to this area of public health.
