Early Career Learning - the LiNEA project. Interim report for Engineering
This interim report is based on data obtained from recently graduated engineers about their learning and development in their first full-time jobs. It covers the first two years of a four-year project, and its main themes have been selected in order to facilitate the next ‘action’ phase of the research. The focus is on the graduate engineers’ learning, and the factors that may affect the speed at which expertise develops. We have identified some areas where adjustments could be made to imp
7.03 Genetics (MIT)
This course discusses the principles of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms, including humans. The topics include: structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes, biological variation resulting from recombination, mutation, and selection, population genetics, use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation and inherited disease.
Science comics as tools for science education and communication: a brief exploratory study
A paper based on the authors dissertation research which examined the use of science comics as tools for science education, scientific literacy and communication. The paper gives an overview of the comics that already communicate science and a literature review shows that comics can be used for encouraging scientific literacy with education and communication as its basis. It also analyses why there is a lack of studies about science comics and suggests potential reasons and questions which cou

2.017J Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems (MIT)
This course covers the design, construction, and testing of field robotic systems, through team projects with each student responsible for a specific subsystem. Projects focus on electronics, instrumentation, and machine elements. Design for operation in uncertain conditions is a focus point, with ocean waves and marine structures as a central theme. Topics include basic statistics, linear systems, Fourier transforms, random processes, spectra, ethics in engineering practice, and extreme events
Mathematical Modeling Using Real Radioactivity Data
In this lab, you can explore how radioactive radiation changes as a function of distance. This curriculum sets the Radioactivity iLab in the context of mathematics curriculum, asking you to consider: What type of mathematical function governs the intensity of radiation over distance?
Design of Dredging Equipment
Dredging equipment, mechanical dredgers, hydraulic dredgers, boundary conditions, design criteria, instrumentation and automation. Study Goals: The goal of the lecture is to get insight in the procedure for designing dredging equipment based on the knowledge of the dredging processes. Special aspects during design and use of dredging equipment.
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
Technology Dynamics for Sustainable Innovation
Conducting innovative research is working on the edge of the known and the unknown. In creating new technology the result is never guaranteed. Society faces a tremendous challenge in order to develop in a more sustainable way. What role is there for technology in this process of change? How could we stimulate innovations in technological systems? Study Goals: At the end of the course the student is able to analyse dynamic processes of technological change within industrial corporations. The stud
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

CSET Science Subtest II: Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
The University of California, Irvine Extension, supported by generous grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Boeing Company, is developing online courses to prepare science and mathematics teachers for the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). This module is part of the preparation for CSET Science Subtest II.
This module includes the following chemistry topics:
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
