The Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party were the first political parties in the United States, lasting from approximately 1796 to 1824
6. Conclusion This unit explored at length some of the difficult issues around the topic of communication, difference and diversity. The analysis of three specific dimensions of ‘difference’ – ethnicity, gender and disability – showed some of the complexities involved in any discussion of these issues. As you reach the end of this unit, you may feel overwhelmed by the range of perspectives and approaches described. The Introduction claimed that good or effective communication involves taking accoun

The American Revolution: The Boston Tea Party
A good video that uses still images to help place the Tea Party in history as the unofficial start of the Revolution. Students should have a timeline to help understand the sequence of events as this video goes well beyond the Tea Party.
Why Web 2.0 is Good for Learning and for Research: Principles and Prototypes
The term "Web 2.0" is used to describe applications that distinguish themselves from previous generations of software by a number of principles. Existing work shows that Web 2.0 applications can be successfully exploited for technology-enhance learning. However, in-depth analyses of the relationship between Web 2.0 technology on the one hand and teaching and learning on the other hand are still rare. In this article, we will analyze the technological principles of the Web 2.0 and describe thei
Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL)
Distributed Internet-based Performance Support Environment for Individualized Learning (DIPSEIL) is a project to define, develop and test a distributed system for individualized learning and the underlying pedagogical procedures to implement, facilitate and promote performance-centered learning experiences in the context of international university education. Using DIPSEIL Model we have developed the first prototype of DIPSEIL with two main characteristics: Distribution and Individualization. Di
Effective Teaching and Learning: Using ICT
Findings and recommendations on effective teaching practice - with the aim of providing material for improving the quality of teaching and learning and for informing developments in initial teacher education and continuing development.,Research report for NRDC
Virtual Learning Environments
Is the concept of 'virtual learning environment' just a popular label to describe any educational software? No, the concept includes several interesting features that justify the use of a specific label. We review these features in the first part of our contribution. Do these features guarantee pedagogical effects? No, we review in the second some potential contributions of virtual learning environments.Turning potential effects into actual outcomes is the challenge of designers.
Usage Analysis Driven by Models in a Pedagogical Context
In the context of distance learning and teaching, the re-engineering process needs a feedback on the learners' usage of the learning system. The feedback is given by interviews, questionnaires, but in the majority of systems, it is given by log files. We consider that it is important to interpret tracks in order to compare the designer's intentions with the learners' activities during a session. In this paper, we present the usage tracking language – UTL. This language was designed to be gener

Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: can Europe be the same with different people in it?
After a half-century of mass immigration, has Europe overestimated the need for immigrant labour and underestimated the culture shaping potential of religion? Christopher Caldwell is a senior editor at the Weekly Standard, and a regular contributor to the Financial Times. His new book is entitled Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Islam, immigration and the west.
Auburn vs. Clemson (1954)
"The triumph was another team victory for the Plainsmen as they chalked up their fourth win in a row. Hoppy Middleton, with three first half touchdowns, lead the Auburn Tigers to a smashing 27 to 6 decision over Clemson before a Homecoming crowd of 24,000. Although the game was marred by a constant flow of penalties, the Plainsmen left no doubt of their superiority in the minds of Coach Frank Howard's elevens. The Auburn forward wall deserved much credit for the decisiveness of the victory. They
America's Space Program: Exploring a New Frontier
tells the story of America's journey to the moon. The creation of NASA, the Apollo vehicles, and the January 1967 tragedy are part of the story. On July 20, 1969, as the Eagle lunar module approached the moon, it became clear that the computer had chosen an unacceptable landing site -- a boulder-strewn crater. With 114 seconds of fuel left, astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin overrode the computers and manually landed the Eagle.
Challenges in Changing the Face of a City
This lesson is designed to explore the complex challenges Oakland's Mayor Jerry Brown faces as he attempts to bring change to the city of Oakland. Key issues include housing, poverty, gentrification, politics and business development.
A lesson in which students examine five examples of roadside architecture built in the 1920s and 30s to catch the eye of passing motorists. They include the Teapot Dome Service Station, the Big Duck poultry store, and the Benewah Milk Bottle.
International Relations in a Post-Hegemonic Age
The academic study of International Relations has, since since its emergence after World War I, sought to combine the development of theoretical frameworks with an engagement, of greater or lesser immediacy, with the changing course of international events. Empire, World War, Cold War and post-1991 US hegemony have all been objects of its concern. Today, oscillating at times uneasily between the enticements of abstraction, and the rush of actuality, the discipline faces a major opportunity, to p
