Alfred University - 'Passionately Pink'
From classrooms to offices, and from playing fields to dining halls, all was awash in pink on the Alfred University campus Wednesday as the community dressed in all varieties of pink garb to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. All joined forces to go Passionately Pink for the Cure by buying shirts and making donations, with proceeds earmarked for the Susan G. Komen Cancer Research Fund. Early in the day, despite some annoying white, dozens of AU faculty, staff, and students gat

Benthic Diversity from Trawl Sampling in the Clyde Sea
The aim of this presentation is to introduce students to some of the common benthic organisms and diversity found in the Clyde Sea and generally in the shallow seas around the coast of the United Kingdom. It is aimed at students who are going to do fieldwork involving sampling benthic diversity for the first time so they can gain some familiarity with the commoner organisms before fieldwork starts. It isn't meant as a replacement to field work and is not a detailed identification guide.

E-science, E-research and E-learning:
New Perspectives for Graduate Studies
The quality of education for doctoral students is closely linked to the quality of the research they undertake. Benefiting from technological advances, new distributed and collaborative research practices can be witnessed. The concept of e-science has emerged and evolved to the concept of e-research. These concepts bring about a new research philosophy and the notion of collaboratory. Our research project aims to develop a renewed doctoral training approach and to facilitate researchers' adoptio
The methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation
The paper develops a methodical approach to e-portfolio content formation. It includes several positions: application e-portfolio for different users category; substantiation of criteria for e-portfolio formations; design of curriculum and materials structure, which adequate to criteria set; developing complex project for realizing practical competences.

Sam Winston, who also wrote/illustrated this work presents some ideas on the project he has been working on for the last three years. Winston’s experiments came from looking at the structures of different types of literature: from storybooks to bus timetables: “The way you navigate a timetable is very different to the way you read a short story” he comments. “I wanted to take these different types of visual navigation and introduce them to each other: a timetable re-ordering all the w
