International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in r
Energy resources: Wind energy
Wind energy was the fastest growing power source at the starts of the 21st century, yet wind-driven mills and pumps, and nautical sails for transport, were, along with waterwheels, the first mechanical devices to power industrial production. The advantages of harnessing wind energy are obvious; it is free, clean and widely available. This unit explores the Wind as a potential source of useable energy.

Using MATLAB for engineers
Introductory course on learning and using MATLAB aimed at 1st year engineering undergraduate. These were developed at the University of Sheffield and authored by J A Rossiter from The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering. The files include a slightly animated power point slide (runs via web) which includes audio. Hence a little like a lecture. The source m-files mentioned are also supplied in the zip files mentioned. These m-files cover a group of topics. Read the instruction
Ethnicity and "race"
This module will explore the concepts of ‘race’, racism, ethnicity (religion and language), identity and nationalism in an historical and comparative manner. It will be concentrating on issues of power and domination, for example it will consider the legacy that imperial rule has left on social structures.
Delivering Sustainable Development
(complete 12 unit module with HTML navigation)
This module opens with a review of changes in the contemporary world political economy and their implications for sustainable development. One of the most important factors generating change is globalisation and we examine the ideologies and institutions which serve to integrate all regions and peoples more intensely than ever before. The relationship between patterns of globalisation and endemic poverty and various environmental crises is examined to illustrate the contours of some of the most
Internationalisation good practice: The inclusive curriculum and ‘Internationalisation at Home’
This theme includes papers and articles which explore the meanings attributed to key phrases and attempt to define key concepts within the field of internationalisation as it relates specifically to learning, teaching and assessment practice and curriculum design and delivery in higher education. Many contributions provide concrete examples of activities to support multicultural learning and embed international dimensions in curricula. The student voice is apparent in research that engages stude
Doing the right thing : corporate social responsibility in a global marketplace
Globalisation, mass consumer awareness and public accountability are all factors in persuading companies to adopt ethical policies. As companies become more accountable not only for their own actions but for those within their supply chain, they have to adapt to ensure success within the context of the global society they operate in. Professor Jeremy Moon (Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility at the University of Nottingham Business School and Director of the International Centre for Cor

Resource efficiency/waste management Activities
Activities for Part Six of Greening Business: One organization’s waste is another organization’s resource. Reducing ‘waste’ within an organization reduces costs through waste disposal and ‘lost’ resource, reduces emissions associated with the transport (and decomposition) of waste, and can provide an additional income stream where waste becomes a useful and valuable resource. ‘Waste management’ or ‘resource efficiency’ includes minimising pollution, as well as reducing, reu
