E-Portfolio Toolkit - Booklet
This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,

The impact of example comparisons on schema acquisition: Do learners really need multiple examples?
Comparing multiple examples within problem categories is usually considered a necessary prerequisite for schema acquisition. However, there is an evident lack of conclusive empirical evidence supporting this claim. Moreover, there are findings indicating that carefully designed one-example conditions may allow for profitable processes of example comparison as well. In line with this reasoning, we present an experiment - that builds up on a series of studies conducted by Quilici and Mayer (1996)

Using text messaging to support administrative communication in higher education
To be effective in higher education, text messaging must be effectively integrated into both the student and staff experience. These user groups provided input into the design of StudyLink, an email to text message service. A small-scale trial was conducted over a period of two academic terms to investigate the feasibility of using this system in a real educational setting. Students reported high satisfaction with the quantity and content of the text messages and tutors reported changes in behav

Al-90 wt% Cu (bronze)
This is a copper-aluminium bronze containing 10 wt% aluminium. A small amount of iron is often added to act as a grain refiner to improve the mechanical properties. Alloys with more than 8 wt% aluminium solidify as the β phase. Below about 930°C, Widmanstätten α phase precipitates. At the eutectoid temperature (565°C) the remaining β decomposes to a lamellar eutectoid of α and β. Rapid cooling from the high temperature β phase can form martensite instead of Widmanstätten α. Aluminium

Arteries and veins of the zebra fish
Arteries and veins are blood vessels and are part of the circulatory system. Arteries take oxygenated blood away from the heart and veins bring blood back to the heart after it has circulated through the body. The circulatory system distributes oxygen to the body and also moves around nutrients.

2.24 Ocean Wave Interaction with Ships and Offshore Energy Systems (13.022) (MIT)
The subject introduces the principles of ocean surface waves and their interactions with ships, offshore platforms and advanced marine vehicles. Surface wave theory is developed for linear and nonlinear deterministic and random waves excited by the environment, ships, or floating structures. Following the development of the physics and mathematics of surface waves, several applications from the field of naval architecture and offshore engineering are addressed. They include the ship Kelvin wave

1.3.1 Who is affected by cardiovascular diseases?
Your heart beats around 100,000 times every day and, in that time, pumps about 23,000 litres of blood around your body. But what happens when it doesn’t work as well as it should? This unit explains what happens in cardiovascular disease, when the heart’s performance is affected, how the normal function of blood vessels is impaired, and what treatments are available. Whether you are a patient, relative, friend or healthcare professional, you will find the unit interesting.

Contributions of Ibn Al-Nafis to the progress of medicine and urology. A study and translations from
This primary-source study of 4 medical works of the 13th century Muslim scholar Ibn Al-Nafis confirmed that his Kitab Al-Mujaz Fi Al-Tibb was authored as an independent book meant to be a handbook for medical students and practitioners not as an epitome of Kitab Al-Qanun of Ibn Sina as thought by recent historians. His huge medical encyclopedia, Al-Shamil, represents a wave of intense scientific activity that spread among the scholars of Cairo and Damascus following the massive destruction of bo
