Offshore Moorings
The course treats the design of offshore mooring systems literally from the ground up: Starting with the anchor and its soils mechanics in the sea bed, via the mechanics of a single mooring line and system of lines. The course concludes by touching on other mooring concepts and the dynamic behavior of the moored object as a non-linear mechanical system. Classroom teaching is augmented by laboratory demonstrations and (when possible) a relevant excursion. Study Goals: The classes are set up to gi

Cavitation on Ship Propellers
Summary: Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course

The Ouster of Muhammad Yunus: Can Politics Destroy Grameen Bank?
"Dismissed." A single word from Bangladesh's highest court ended a bitter legal battle that has grabbed world attention. The loser in this case: Muhammad Yunus, the 70-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate and founder of Grameen Bank, the groundbreaking Bangladeshi microfinance institution he is no longer allowed to run. But as with many of the highs and lows of microfinance, there is much more than meets the eye to this boardroom shakeout.Author(s): Knowledge@Wharton

Stress and Health Disparities

A Public Health Seminar delivered by Eric G. Walsh, M.D., M.P.H., Monday, April 12, 2010

In the quest for understanding health disparities many explanations have been offered. One new and telling hypothesis is that certain groups of people carry a greater weight of stress proportional to the amount of protective factors offered them in society. Key attributes of this new model include introducing internalized hatred as a function of discrimination to increase allostatic load. While

Making online-courses more learner centred, more learner drivenand more social
This contribution focuses the question if is it possible at all to follow eLearning 2.0 paradigm using a state of the art learning management system or do we have to replace well established tools in order to advance eLearning. How can teachers develop their online courses regarding to eLearning 2.0 perceptions? During the last years the author tried to enhance her online courses to make them more learner centred, learner driven and social. Her substantial experiences are summarized.

The Use of Multiple Student Modeling to Parameterize Group Learning
Recent criticism of ITS research for neglecting social aspects of learning is constructively answered by a practical attempt to extrapolate student modeling and intelligent learning support to group situations. The central focus is on using individually assessed student models to anticipate and parameterize group learning situations. This requires the integration of knowledge from individual models. Aspects of system architecture and dialogue design are discussedbased on an example of a replicat

The Remote Control Approach - How to Apply Scaffolds to Existing Collaborative Learning Environments
In this paper we present an architecture for the integration of tutoring and process scaffolds into existing collaborative applications. The architecture allows to combine existing research results concerning collaborative processes and their formalization, and existing and tested collaborative learning environments. The architecture allows to control the learning environments either by a human or a pedagogic agent. Both types of tutors are using the same set of primitives - either via an intuit

The Importance of an Enhanced Problem Representation: On the Role of Elaborations in Physics Problem
This study of physics problem-solving identifies reasoning mechanisms that enable the problem-solver to achieve the transformation to a physics structure of the problem situation. Elaboration is explored as a mechanism in fulfilling this transformation by providing beginning problem-solvers with elaborations that they failed to infer. A card sorting experiment was employed in which two versions of physics problem descriptions had to be sorted. A comparison is made between proficient and weak stu

A Personal Account of Efforts to End School Segregation in a Southern School System
The Brown Decision, whose 50th Anniversary was observed in 2004, was a landmark case that ended the doctrine of separate but equal. During the observation of the anniversary, many pundits reflected on the political, social, and historical significance of Brown. This article takes a different approach in reflecting on the importance of Brown. A historical context is provided that reveals the conditions that existed in the south prior to and after the Brown Decision. The author tells the poignant
