Researching solutions to global water shortages
Director of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Clean Water Technologies. Making sure the world’s population has enough drinking water is one of the biggest challenges we face today. A rapidly increasing global population, the fact that only a very small percentage of global water is available for consumption and an uneven global distribution of clean drinking water are the main problems in regard to the current global water crisis. Professor Hilal discusses these problems and some of

CAAD: Education - Research and Practice [Conference Proceedings]
In the announcement of the sixth eCAADe Conference we stated that It is held at a time where CAAD is moving into practice very fast, with heavy influence on research and education. We stated that research is directed towards the early design phases, and that education is facing the problem of mass education. In that situation much benefit can be obtained from collaboration with practice. We decided to give the conference the title ?CAAD: Education - Research and Practice? to state the importanc

Inaugural Lecture Prof Nick Frost - Assessing Modern British Childhood: research, policy and practic
This lecture explored the contemporary policy agenda for children and young people living in England. The major focus of the lecture was on the relationship between the state and modern childhood. The lecture then moved on to examine the state of contemporary British childhood. A series of recent research and policy reports have suggested that British children inhabit a world that compares negatively to children in otherwise comparable societies. Childhood and youth are also a high profile and f
Theories and concepts

Understanding global politics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009. This module introduces global politics through the major theoretical, historical and empirical ways of seeing international relations. Different claims, about, for example, human nature, power, war, peace, the state, society, law and politics are offered by thinkers who exercise a major influence on our contemporary understanding. These claims contribute to different approaches to
ASSIMILATE project - exploring assessment at Masters level
Key things about assessment - exploring assessment at Masters degree level in the UK and internationally. Assessment driving learning -Assessment is the major driving force on learning for most students. If assessment is well-designed, there are positive effects on how students go about their learning. Global literature has confirmed this over the last 30 years. (Boud, Mentkowski, Knight and Yorke and many others). -The design of assessment shapes students patterns of studying (marks as money) a
Delivering Sustainable Development: Activity 7
This activity will allow you to explore the theoretical backgrounds to both the ecological footprint and the carbon footprint, so that you understand the ideas that underpin these indicators. You will examine the application of ecological and carbon footprints at a variety of geographical scales from the individual to the global. This will allow you to develop a critical understanding of the potential these tools have to engage with sustainability agendas, together with an appreciation of the de

Energy resources: wave energy
The energy carried by ocean waves derives from a proportion of the wind energy transferred to the ocean surface by frictional drag. So, ultimately it stems from the proportion of incoming solar energy that drives air movement. Just how much energy is carried by a single wave depends on the wind speed and the area of ocean surface that it crosses; wave height, wavelength, and therefore wave energy, are functions of the distance or fetch over which the wind blows. This unit considers the power of
Water is arguably the most important physical resource as it is the one that is essential to human survival. Understanding the global water cycle and how we use water is essential to planning a sustainable source of water for the future. In the UK there are areas where water supplies are limited, showin by recent droughts. Globally, there are many reas that do ot have enough water to support the current population adequately. Decisions will have to be made on the best way to use water in a world
