SP.718 Special Topics at Edgerton Center: D-Lab Health: Medical Technologies for the Developing Worl
D-Lab Health provides multi-disciplinary approach to global health technology design via guest lectures and a major project based on fieldwork. We will explore the current state of global health challenges and learn how design medical technologies that address those problems. Students may travel to Nicaragua during spring break and work with health professionals, using medical technology design kits to gain field experience for their device challenge. As a final class deliverable, you will creat
17.418 Field Seminar: International Relations Theory (MIT)
This seminar provides an overview of the field of international relations. Each week, a different approach to explaining international relations will be examined. By surveying major concepts and theories in the field, the seminar will also assist graduate students in preparing for the comprehensive examination and further study in the department's more specialized offerings in international relations.

ESD.83 Doctoral Seminar in Engineering Systems (MIT)
In establishing the Engineering Systems Division, MIT has embarked on a bold experiment – bringing together diverse areas of expertise into what is designed to be a new field of study. In many respects, the full scale and scope of Engineering Systems as a field is still emerging. This seminar is simultaneously designed to codify what we presently know and to give direction for future development.
The impact of enterprise focussed modules
This presentation outlines the use of a tested research instrument (Bandura's self efficacy theory) and students own perceptions of their enterprise skills and abilities

This unit introduces ‘voice-leading’ or ‘Schenkerian’ analysis, perhaps the most widely-used and discussed method of analysing tonal music. In this unit, this method is explained through the analysis of piano sonatas by Mozart. The unit is the first in the AA314 series of three units on this form of harmonic analysis, and concentrates on the ‘foreground level’ of voice leading. As you work through this unit, you will become familiar with five complete movements of Mozart’s piano

Einstein's real complaint about the quantum theory was not that it required God to play dice, but that it failed to "represent a reality in time and space, free from spooky actions at a distance." I shall use the rhetorical device of a computer-simulated lecture demonstration (a cartoon version of recent experiments in Vienna) to explain both the appeal of Einstein's criticism and the remarkable fact that the "reality" he insisted upon is nevertheless impossible. I will assume no background in q

A short PowerPoint presentation illustrating how flowrate of a stream can be measured Aimed at students without previous field experience of freshwater biology sampling techniques.
A virtual laboratory that includes immuno-gold labelling and transmission electron micrography (immuno-EM). It allows the student to study intracellular-traffic pathways of two cell-surface receptor molecules, following stimulation of the cells with their specific ligand, for different time periods. The programme first introduces the theory underlying the techniques and includes a video of EM work in a real laboratory. The student is then taken through a series of questions which requires them t
A protein analysis laboratory using SDS-PAGE, western-blotting and endoprotease digestion. The programme includes a section on the theory of the techniques, a video demonstration in a real laboratory, and a series of questions which guide the students through the structural analysis of model proteins (3 are included). Students go to the virtual laboratory and devise their own experiments in order to determine the molecular weight, subunit composition etc of the proteins. Results (gels and blots)
This resource covers the skills and knowledge that will assist the learner, as a Laboratory Technician, to perform aseptic techniques during sampling and general microbiological procedures both in the laboratory and out in the field. Also covered is how to maintain the integrity of the sample source as well as of the sample itself which will assist the learner in producing reliable test data. The resource contains activities and resources to facilitate self-paced learning. Topics include: perfor

D-Lab is a year-long series of courses and field trips. The fall class provides a basic background in international development and appropriate technology through guest speakers, case studies and hands-on exercises. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in an IAP field trip to Haiti, India, Brazil, Honduras, Zambia, Samoa, or Lesotho and continue their work in a spring term design class. As part of the fall class, students will partner with community organizations in these count
Short video introducing and illustrating the measurement of water quality in standing water such as lakes and ponds. Aimed at students without previous field experience of measuring the physical environment in water.
This module aims to provide an introduction to axiomatic reasoning in mathematics, particularly in relation to the perspective adopted by modern algebra. Properties of the standard number systems will be developed. The abstract definition of a group will be motivated by a number of concrete examples. Standard results in the theory of groups will be proved rigorously. Applications of group theory in geometry will be stressed.
