Recycling Program Piloted in Bracket and Sirrine Hall
Clemson was one of the first universities to enter a contest sponsored by Busch Systems. They were so impressed with the submission, they're using Clemson as the flagship example in their marketing materials. I
Building Towards the Future
This curricular unit introduces students to basic Civil Engineering concepts in an exciting and interactive manner. Bridges and skyscrapers, the two most visible products of Civil Engineers, will be discussed in depth. Students will have a chance to design and build balsa wood structures, as well as understand the design principles behind these structures that allow them to withstand vertical and lateral forces. There is also an emphasis on how materials absorb different types of forces. Since t

This RLO considers the type of evidence which should be used when making decisions about patient care.
Why published research needs to be appraised by readers.
This RLO describes the distribution of fluids within the body and describes the forces involved in the circulation of fluids between the capillary and tissue compartments.
Introducing the "lock and key" analogy of drug-receptor interaction, whereby only drugs of a certain molecular shape will 'fit' with a cell membrane receptor.
How to present and interpret the results of a meta-analysis using forest plots.
This RLO demonstrates how to interpret and use clinical trial data (ARR, RRR, NNT, NNH, and confidence intervals) in practice.
To identify what a portfolio is, why they are used and to identify some pieces of material that may be used to support claims for learning and development.
This RLO describes the characteristics of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.
This RLO explains what are case-control and cohort studies, and outlines the difference between them.
This RLO outlines why asking the right question can help in the search for evidence, and explains how to construct good questions using the PICO technique.
To describe the different types of receptor which drugs target.
Students explore the sound dampening ability of numerous materials by designing and prototyping model sound booths. As a result, students learn about how sound is reflected, absorbed and travels through various materials, thus giving them an overview of sound dampening, energy absorption and sound propagation in the context of engineering. Students also create blueprints and document their findings in a formal lab report.
