Visualisation for Clients - One Example of Educating CAAD for Practice
During the spring term 1996, 13 students of the 3rd and 4th year at the School of Architecture at Lund University had the opportunity to make a one semester CAAD project. 11 students chose the individual exercise to use computer media for developing a small architectural design in interaction with a client. The focus was set more on visualization and the process of communicating ideas, feelings and practical solutions between architect and client and visa versa rather than concentrated on the fi

Pupil voice: comfortable and uncomfortable learnings for teachers
This is a DfES Research Informed Practice (TRIPS) digest of research. The researchers interviewed Year 8 pupils about the teaching and learning in their lessons. They fed back the comments to their teachers. They then interviewed the teachers to find their reactions to the pupils’ comments and investigated the use the teachers made of the ideas with their current and subsequent classes.

Semantic Interpretation of Architectural Drawings
The paper reviews the needs and issues of automatically interpreting architectural drawings into building model representations. It distinguishes between recognition and semantic interpretation and reviews the steps involved in developing such a conversion capability, referring to the relevant literature and concepts. It identifies two potentially useful components, neither of which has received attention. One is the development of a syntactically defined drafting language. The other is a strate
China's 21st Century Market Authoritarian Challenge.
Beyond the military and economic challenge presented by Beijing, there lies a battle of ideas. China's market authoritarian model promises to shape the developing world in the 21st Century offering both new modes of governance and a path around the West. What does this mean for the Enlightenment ideals that have informed Western progress for some 200 years? What does it mean for the millions seeking a better life across the Third World?

Encouraging book talk in the school library
As adults we sometimes struggle to justify our feelings about particular books, but children are quite clear about what they like and don't like. It is possible to get children to discuss why they liked or did not like particular books and to encourage them to think more deeply about the books they read. This unit offers ideas and activities to engage pupils in discussing books. It is aimed at librarians, teaching assistants and other adults working with pupils in school libraries.
Galton Board Game
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet illustrates the Galton board in which a ball falls through a triangular array of pegs. Various combinatorial ideas are illustrated, including combinations, bit strings, and binomial coefficients.
Animals at the extremes: Polar biology
The extreme challenges of life in the polar regions require the animals who make their habitat there to make many adaptations. This unit explores the polar climate and how animals like reindeer, polar bears, penguins, sea life and even humans manage to survive there. It looks at the adaptations to physiological proceses, the environmental effects on diet, activity and fecundity, and contrasts the strategies of aquatic and land-based animals in surviving in this extreme habitat. This unit builds

Chicken Wing Microbiology
In the first week of this three-lab series, students wash store-bought chicken wings in sterile saline, serially dilute the resulting bacterial suspension, and inoculate agar plates. In the following week, students count the colonies and calculate the number of colony-forming units per ml of wash fluid (typically around 10^6 cfu/ml). They design experiments to test treatments that might reduce the microbial contamination of chicken wings, and they collect the data during the third week. Instruct

1.12 Conclusion It is clear that there are tensions in the use of the site, in that it attracts quite different audiences. There are also tensions relating to the number of visitors it is logistically possible to accommodate, and the economics of maintaining a viable revenue income. The debate goes on about how best to develop and maintain the site in line with the Trust's stated aims and objectives. There is no definitive answer, and the site will inevitably evolve over time.

Farming on the Plains
This video is accompanied by text. "No less difficult, though less colorful and poetic, were the lives of the settlers. With the Homestead Act of 1862, a settler could claim as much as 160 acres (a quarter section) on the condition that he (occasionally she) lived on the land for five years, improved it, and paid a fee of $30. Alternatively, land could be bought after only six months’ residence at $1.25 per acre. Before the Homestead Act, government land was sold for revenue. After the Homeste

Zero chance? Aiming for zero in weapons control
These seminars were run by the Oxford Martin School (formerly the James Martin 21st Century School) in association with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict. Three intersecting considerations will be examined for their relevance in assessing the wisdom of adopting 'zero' as the goal for an international initiative: 1) Tactics: Whether and how framing an issue in terms of getting to zero can be a successful technique for issue advocates? 2) Diplomatic strategy: What is the wisd
War 2.0: Political Violence and New Media symposium (Day one)
Today, war is conducted not only by the dispatch of Tomahawks in the air or Kalashnikovs and suicide attacks on the ground but also by means of bytes, tweets, digital images, and social networking forums. (New) media technology, in other words, has become a medium of war and diplomacy. This multidisciplinary two-day symposium on 7-8 October hosted by the Department of International Relations at the ANU mapped the shifting arena of war, conflict, terrorism, and violence in an intensely mediated a
