The Visual Datasets text module discusses the concept of visual learning and presents some suggestions for ways to design learning environments that support students in developing visual literacy skills. Three visual datasets that can be used for problem solving activities in evolution, classification, development, and botany are included: Caminacules: A dataset of imaginary animals that can be used as the basis for a variety of problem-posing and problem-solving activities in evolution, classi
Microbial Genetics Construction Kit (?GCK)
A µGCK problem starts with a field collection of bacteria, either in a test tube or plated onto a petri plate. Each of the gray circles on the plate represents one colony. These colonies result from bacteria collected from the field. The colonies are of unknown genotype and phenotype, although all bacteria within a colony share a genotype and phenotype. µGCK includes several tools to help organize and analyze the data that are collected during an experiment. The Media Matrix window displays t
Heroes and Heroines
Teachers can use this lesson to introduce or examine in depth the concept of heroism through discussions of heroic actions and character.Students will look at images of military, religious, political, and everyday heroes and heroines and discuss their lives and the effects of their deeds. For the purposes of this lesson, heroes are defined as figures who have great strength and ability and are admired for their achievements. They may risk or sacrifice their lives for others or may be noted for s
Gerry Martin at a Seminar
Gerry Martin talks about the development of science and technology over the last ten thousand years. He illustrates his arguments with charts and glass instruments.,Gerry starts the seminar held at King's College, Cambridge, in April 2003, and then makes several interjections. At the end he summarizes much of his philosophy of historical change. Filmed by Alan Macfarlane. Lasts about 42 minutes.
Lecture on fieldwork in the Soviet Union, 1988-9
Public lecture given in October 1989 by Professor Ernest Gellner. He reflected on his year spent in the Soviet Union on the eve of the collapse of communism.,The lecture was given to a Cambridge Audience in the Rayleigh Lecture theatre in the Social and Political Sciences Faculty. Professor Gellner had flown in that morning from America. It was filmed, using a video 8 camera, by Humphrey Hinton. It was chaired by Dr. Alan Macfarlane. The video is unedited. The lecture lasts for about 65 minutes.

Disability Studies for Teachers
This document introduces the field and resources of Diability Studies for interested teachers.Disability Studies for Teachers is a web-based resource for teachers who want to introduce students in social studies, history, literature, and related subjects in grades 6-12 to disability studies and disability history. Resources on this site also can be adapted for use in postsecondary education. The project prepares lesson plans, essays, and teaching materials. It also draws on and contains links to

Fundamentals of Nanoelectronics
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility or diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic viewpoint using examples related to the
Nanoscale Antenna Apertures
This presentation will discuss light concentration and enhancement in nanometer-scale ridge aperture antennas. Resent research, including numerical simulations and near field optical measurements has demonstrated that nanoscale ridge antenna apertures can concentrate light into nanometer domain. More importantly, these ridge antenna apertures also provide enhanced optical transmission several orders of magnitude higher than regularly shaped nano-apertures. We will discuss fundamental theories of
