I talked about Second Life in the chemistry classroom at the Chemical Heritage Foundation on April 29, 2008. This was part of the 8th Annual Leadership Initiative in Science Education (LISE 8). Most examples involve work done in collaboration with Andrew Lang. At the end I invite the group to an in-world meeting on May 6, 2008 at 13:30 EDT on ACS
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St
These slides provides an overview of some of the properties of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and its applications in molecular biology. It gives an overview of the topology of DNA and how it can be exploited in PCR, restriction mapping and other molecular techniques. The resource is used as a 50min lecture to first year undergradutes in the biosciences. It was created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi and the source file can be adapted for educational and non-commercial purposes only as licensed under the C
This course covers the principles of materials science and cell biology underlying the design of medical implants, artificial organs, and matrices for tissue engineering. Methods for biomaterials surface characterization and analysis of protein adsorption on biomaterials. Molecular and cellular interactions with biomaterials are analyzed in terms of unit cell processes, such as matrix synthesis, degradation, and contraction. Mechanisms underlying wound healing and tissue remodeling following imp
Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the cl
In today’s society more and more digital data become available as a result of a variety of electronical, biochemical, medial, industrial and other sensing devices and communication systems (Internet, TV, PC, telecommunications). Examples of such data are audio and speech signals, digital images and video, text, and bio molecular data. To interact with machines that handle and process these volumes of data and to interact with the data itself, intelligent representation, processing, reasoning a
Blue and white cotton and nylon ruched swimsuit. Bodice and lower half in white cotton with blue flowers and black abstract design. Centre panel is of royal blue nylon (back and front). Bodice has low back and is edged all around with same blue; the straps are also blue and have two buttonholes to adjust.. Date: 1950 - 1959 - from the The Betty Smithers Design Collection at Staffordshire University.
1. Description of the content of this workshop (200 words) This will be used as an abstract for the Conference Programme What skills do employers want from graduates? How does the Institute for Enterprise contribute to enhancing these skills at Leeds Met? This participatory session will explore the range of graduate skills regarded as important by employers and will highlight the ways in which the Institute is supporting the embedding of these skills across the University. Together we will conte
This guide provides an introduction to the different types of molecular spectroscopic analysis, describing the basic principles of each technique and practical considerations including sample preparation. It is illustrated with simple diagrams, photographs of equipment and information to aid interpretation of spectra.
This course deals with the application of structure and theory to the study of organic reaction mechanisms: Stereochemical features including conformation and stereoelectronic effects; reaction dynamics, isotope effects and molecular orbital theory applied to pericyclic and photochemical reactions; and special reactive intermediates including carbenes, carbanions, and free radicals.
In this course we will explore the new emerging field of pathogen-induced chronic diseases. Work in this field has redefined the causes of some major disorders, such as ulcers. By reading the primary research literature we will learn about the molecular mechanisms through which pathogens cause disease. The diseases that we cover will be introduced with a short patient case study. We will discuss the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and gastric disease, HPV and cervical cancer, hepatitis C virus and
This course introduces experimental biochemical and molecular techniques from a quantitative engineering perspective. Experimental design, rigorous data analysis, and scientific communication form the underpinnings of this subject. Three discovery-based experimental modules focus on genome engineering, expression engineering, and biomaterial engineering.This OCW site is based on the source OpenWetWare class Wiki, found at 20.109(F07): Laboratory Fundamentals of Biological Engineering.
The development of board evaluation functions for complex strategy games has been approached in a variety of ways. The analysis of game interactions is recognized as a valid analogy to common real-world problems, which often present difficulty in designing algorithms to solve them. Genetic programming, as a branch of evolutionary computation,provides advantages over traditional algorithms in solving these complex real-world problems in speed, robustness and flexibility. This thesis attempts to a
In this paper we present an approach, based on exploiting and modeling empirical knowledge, for design an adaptive intelligent tutoring system in medical education. We present our learning knowledge design constraints and their related computer representations. We conclude with the possibilities of our approach and their perspectives.
The paper describes a model of implementation of the European e-Competence Framework in Sofia University by using the methodology and tools developed in the frames of the EC Sixth Framework European Integrated Project Ten- Competence. The work is a follow up activity of an internal university project for implementation a curricula in computing based on the ACM/IEEE recommendations.
This paper describes the design of Portfolio and its application at FH JOANNEUM in a range of contexts where it will be used to make learning outcomes visible and to facilitate personal development planning. The flexibility of the ePortfolio architecture is appraised and the integration with virtual learning environments is discussed. Preliminary findings from evaluation studies (feedback / data obtained from students, graduates and staff evaluations and discussions, and relevant points arising
The term Electronic Learning or e-Learning is being used in Russia rather rarely. It integrates a number of terminological notions in the sphere of application of modern information and communication technologies in education such as multimedia, education on the base of web-technologies, etc. Teachers and learners must realize that new opportunities are offered by modern on-line communication. A person with basic Internet and Web skills is open to a new world of knowledge, from free Web surfing
