Students are introduced to chemical engineering and learn about its many different applications. They are provided with a basic introduction to matter and its different properties and states. An associated hands-on activity gives students a chance to test their knowledge of the states of matter and how to make observations using their five senses: touch, smell, sound, sight and taste.
"Biomedical Information Technology, Fall 2008"
" This course teaches the design of contemporary information systems for biological and medical data. Examples are chosen from biology and medicine to illustrate complete life cycle information systems, beginning with data acquisition, following to data storage and finally to retrieval and analysis. Design of appropriate databases, client-server strategies, data interchange protocols, and computational modeling architectures. Students are expected to have some familiarity with scientific applica
Save the Oysters - Introducing Non-native Species to the Chesapeake Bay
Since the introduction of MSX and Dermo in the 1950’s, two infectious diseases that played a large role in the decline the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population, several oyster hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard are working with scientists across many fields to develop innovative restoration programs. One idea is to introduce a non-native oyster from China called Crassostrea ariakensis. In this video podcast, MicrobeWorld talks about current research underway with C. ariakensis, the potentia
EE 120 - Lecture 27 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,
Numbers needed to treat and numbers needed to harm
This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH).
Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar
Greeks protest austerity measures

INTERACTIVE LOOK AT THE AMERICAN GOTHIC WITH A WHITEBOARD
THIS IS A BRIEF LOOK AT A FEW INTERACTIVE SLIDES MADE WITH MIMIO STUDIO SOFTWARE FOR USE WITH AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD. THE VIDEO LASTS THREE MINUTES AND DISPLAYS VARIOUS WAYS TO USE THE PAINTING TO CREATE INTEGRATED UNITS OF STUDY. A GOOD WAY TO GET STUDENTS TO THINK ABOUT ART IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
Driehaus Prize Award Ceremony Colloquium
The 2012 Driehaus Prize Award Ceremony Colloquium featuring moderator and host Geoffrey Baer, Architecture critic and Driehaus Prize Juror Paul Goldberger, and laureates Michael Graves and Elizabeth Barlow Rogers on the topic of "Looking to the Past" on March 24, 2012, at the John B. Murphy Auditorium.
Envelope Money Management System
This video explains using an envelope/cash system to budget monthly items such as gas and spending money. The labeled envelopes and pretend money are shown , and a narrator explains the process. ( This video could be used to show younger students how to divide their allowance, gifts, etc., into different spending categories.) ( 3:52)
The Formation of the Solar System
Seems to me Mr. Bighead is as much an actor as he is a scientist in this animated video. Here he plays two roles in which he debates with himself how our solar system was formed. You will learn about the nebular theory and planetesimal theory of formation.

Once an object is placed in the beam of a laser diode, a part of the beam reflected by the latter is retro-injected in the active cavity of the diode and disrupts the physical properties of it. This disruption which is shown principally by a modification of the frequency of the emission power of the diode is known as the phenomenon of “self-mixing” Long considered as a parasitic phenomenon, notably in telecommunication by optical fibres, we will present its exploitation for metrological ends
Back to School/Back Outside Report
In this 2:30 report,the importance of spending time outside for children is emphasised and how it impoves school performance. A good video to show to parents and to students in the Spring. Especially important is the relationship between being outside and better learning abilitiies.

A service of worship in Duke University Chapel. Dr Adam Hollowell delivers a sermon entitled "Knowledge and Power." Opening excerpt fro the sermon: (42:27) "About this time eleven years ago I was sitting in a small classroom in the Religion Department next door fulfilling my freshman year seminar requirement. As was the practice then, and still is today, all first year students must take a seminar course of fifteen students or fewer, and I elected to take mine in on the topic of Protestants an

Early Career Learning - the LiNEA project. Interim report for Accountancy
This report on the learning and development of trainee accountants covers the first two years of a four-year project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council’s Teaching and Learning Research Programme. Its findings are based on evidence collected from fourteen trainee accountants in their first year of training and from some of their mentors and managers. The main themes have been selected in order to facilitate discussions about the progress of the research with our employer partner
