Conduct exit interviews
It is essential that the exit interview be well-planned, conducted properly and that extensive notes are taken. This will ensure that all areas are covered for the exiting employee and that the likelihood for a dispute later on is severely diminished. Information gathered in the exit interview can also be used as feedback on how the organisation can improve its processes and procedures. This resource demonstrates how to plan and conduct an exit interview and how feedback
Life on the Moon
In this lesson, students learn about the physical properties of the Moon. They compare these to the properties of the Earth to determine how life would be different for astronauts living on the Moon.

Conduct a job evaluation
Job evaluation is a logical process. Most systems work by giving a weighting to key factors in a job that affect how much someone is paid. We call these 'compensable factors'. One approach is to have a range of points that you choose from, as you compare your 'real' job factors against a model. You'll probably have heard of this as the 'points' system.
Structural Mechanics II and Exercises
After showing how to use "conjugate simultaneous linear equation" to express both "equilibrium equation" and "transformation equation" of the mechanics of truss structure as well as using an identity equation which is just as simple as linear algebra, we are going to explain how to prove the law of virtual work, and also explain the significance of it through examples.
Pràctiques de programació
No existeixen receptes màgiques per a trobar solucions factibles a tots els problemes als que un programador es pot enfrontar al llarg de la seva vida professional. La única manera de que l'estudiant desenvolupi les capacitats d'abstracció de problemes i plantejament eficient de solucions, és mitjançant la creació dels seus propis mecanismes, cosa que només s'aconsegueix amb la pràctica. Per tant, aquesta serà una assignatura majoritàriament pràctica, on l'estudiant haurà d'afrontar

Brain: The Inside Story's "Your Thinking Brain"
If there is one thing that makes you different from other animals, it is your extraordinary ability to think. Like other thinking species, humans don't just react to the world as it is: We reflect on the past, imagine what could be, and then plan ways to make our thoughts become reality. Our brain's advanced outer layer, or cortex, enables us to remember past events and predict the future consequences of our actions before we make decisions. We can think about thinking, and use language to excha
Brain: The Inside Story's "Your Changing Brain"
Your brain began forming before you were born, building the intricate network of neurons that help you survive in the world. Once developed, the basic structures for sensing, feeling, and thinking last a lifetime—yet your brain continues to change. The neural connections keep making adjustments with every experience and everything that you learn.
