The Dirty Water Project
In this activity, students investigate different methods (aeration and filtering) for removing pollutants from water. They will design and build their own water filters.
What’s Gotten Into You?
In this activity, students use models to investigate the process and consequences of water contamination on the land, groundwater, and plants. This is a good introduction to building water filters found in the associated activity, The Dirty Water Project.
Construction d'une base de connaissances et d'une banque de ressources pour le domaine du téléappr
This article sets the foundation for the development of a knowledge base and a resource (learning object) repository in the domain of telelearning, enabling researchers to reference resources in this domain using standard specifications based on domain ontology and to integrate them according to a set of research or teaching activities. The resources are referenced with metadata based on domain ontology and their search is guided by use cases describing activities where these resources are used

Description not set
It’s Really Heating Up in Here!
Students create and observe a greenhouse effect model and discuss the implications of global warming theory for engineers, themselves and the Earth.
Students observe demonstrations, and build and evaluate simple models to understand the greenhouse effect and the role of increased greenhouse gas concentration in global warming.
Moving without Wheels
In a class demonstration, students observe a simple water cycle model to better understand its role in pollutant transport. This activity shows one way in which pollution is affected by the water cycle; it simulates a point source of pollution in a lake and the resulting environmental consequences.
A series of Questionmark Perception files that use scenario-based projects to explain the theory of dilutions. Also included is a bank of questions requiring the reader to complete complex calculations related to dilution series and the construction of solutions to a specific concentration or molarity. The QTIXML file needs to be opened in QP Authoring Manager, converted to an assessment and exported into your own VLE.
'It's my body and I'll do what I Like with it' Bodies as possessions and objects
We commonly use the language of body ownership as a way of claiming personal rights, though we do not normally mean it literally. Most people feel uneasy about markets in sexual or reproductive services, and though there is a substantial global trade in body tissues, the illicit trade in live human organs is widely condemned. But what, if any, is the problem with treating bodies as resources and/or possessions? Is there something about the body that makes it particularly inappropriate to apply t

Uncertainty, Lags and Nonlinearity: Challenges to Governance in a Turbulent World
Prof. Homer-Dixon looks at systems displaying high levels of uncertainty. Using the example of climate change, he asks whether standard "management" approaches used by policymakers are enough or if we must find new approaches in times of uncertainty. Global financial, climate, energy, and food challenges exhibit similar characteristics - all emerge from systems exhibiting high levels of uncertainty, countless unknown unknowns, time lags, threshold effects, occasional chaotic behavior, and someti
