Biomedical Engineering Design
This course presents a design philosophy and a design approach, dedicated to rehabilitation technology. This field was selected because of human-machine interaction is inherent and vital. Illustrative examples will be discussed by their entire design process
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world. The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field.
Quantum Information Processing
Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of today's "classical" computation and communication systems. In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field.
Free Online Psychology Videos and Video Clips
A list of online videos and video clips related to the field of psychology. These can be used for online classes, hybrids, in class, or for outside assignments.
Species Diversity, Island Biogeography, and the Design of Nature Reserves
This field and laboratory investigation is an open-ended exercise designed to test predictions from island biogeography theory using various-sized fragments of leaf litter arthropod communities as "island" systems. Litter islands are constructed in a deciduous forest and students collect samples of leaf litter and extract arthropods using the Berlese Funnel technique. After arthropods are collected, students learn identification techniques, compute diversity indices, construct dominance-diversit
The Kankapot Creek Coast Guard: Public service through water quality monitoring of a stressed stream
The Biology Department at the University of Wisconsin -- Fox Valley is carrying out a long-term project in which students gather water quality data on a nearby impaired stream. These data will eventually be used to help formulate a restoration plan for the stream. This exercise follows the procedures our students use to assess stream habitat quality, chemical and physical parameters, and benthic macroinvertebrate diversity and pollution tolerance. Data collection is completed in the field using
The Roles Of Living Marine Organisms And Field Work In Teaching Invertebrate Biology
A laboratory introducing students to the "larger world" by demonstrating behavioral adaptations using marine invertebrates in the classroom and observing them in their natural habitat in field studies.
The Use of Echosounding Equipment in Limnology and Ecology Classes
This exercise demonstrates the use of commercially available echo sounding equipment as a tool in ecological studies which are appropriate for class field projects.
The Use of the Biotic Index as an Indication of Water Quality
This is a field/laboratory exercise involving the collection, identification, and use of aquatic insects to estimate the water quality of lotic stream ecosystems. Aspects of this laboratory are appropriate for an introductory biology course, an extended student project, or a detailed laboratory exercise ...
Creating the Hall of Planet Earth
This Web site tells the stories behind the making of the museum's Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth. Along with tracking the hall's creation, the following sections also tell the story of our planet's creation. What You See Here Is Out There introduces students to the five big questions asked by Earth scientists. The Man Who Knew a Mountain takes a look at how obsidian from the Medicine Lake volcano became part of the exhibit. Expeditions explains how museum expeditions sought the answers to the fi
Rock Deformation Gallery
This gallery of online resources is from the Museum's Seminars on Science, a series of distance-learning courses designed to help educators meet the new national science standards. The Rock Deformation Gallery, part of the Earth: Inside and Out seminar, features: Illustrations from the Hall of Planet Earth, which has two informative overviews - Deformed Rocks and Deforming Rocks in the Laboratory: Deformed Marble Cylinders;Deformed Conglomerate in the Hall of Planet Earth, which has three annota
The second Space symposium- learning spaces
This presentation discusses the various elements that deem enterprise education spaces as fit for purpose
Measuring methane above the Arctic
This week in the Planet Earth Podcast: Michelle Cain of the University of Cambridge and Stéphane Bauguitte of the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements explain how and why they're measuring methane in the atmosphere above the Arctic -- a region that's warming twice as fast as anywhere else on our planet.
Luxury: Catering to the Super-Wealthy
The rich “are different from you and me,” wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald. Yes, but just how different? And what do they want to buy? Meet the new Ultra High Net Worth Individual
Avoiding Culture Clashes When Making Decisions
Should your boss make the decisions for your group? Or should you, as a team member, have a say in them? The answer may depend on the norms of your cultural background. If you have a multicultural team, you can’t work effectively until you’ve addressed these differences in style.
Islamic Societies of the Middle East and North Africa: Religion, History, and Culture
This new course offers a panoramic survey of the Islamic societies of the Middle East and North Africa from their origins to the present day. It will deal with the history and expansion of Islam, both as a world religion and civilization, from its birth in the Arabian peninsula in the seventh century to its subsequent spread to other parts of western Asia and North Africa. Issues of religious practices, political governance and movements, gender, social relations and cultural norms will be ex

Dr. Richard Field research interests lie in conservation, biodiversity and the forces that structure ecological communities. In this podcast, Dr Field from the School of Geography compares and contrasts his experiences as a researcher in national parks in Honduras and Indonesia, and the different types of ecological communities he has studied, and goes on to introduce the emerging field of conservation bio-geography.
How badly has the recession affected the relationship between political parties and business? Expert in the field - Professor Mick Moran - assesses the cracks in the relationship and how the crisis will affect it in the future. Professor Moran was at the University to open the inaugural seminar series for the Centre for British Politics.
