Rubinstein on Game Theory and Behavioral Economics
Ariel Rubinstein of Tel Aviv University and New York University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the state of game theory and behavioral economics, two of the most influential areas of economics in recent years. Drawing on his Afterword for the 60th anniversary edition of Von Neumann and Morgenstern's Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, Rubinstein argues that game theory's successes have been quite limited. Rubinstein, himself a game theorist, argues that game theory is unable to y
Introducción al Sistema Jurídico Internacional y de la Unión Europea (2010)
La asignatura pretende ofrecer al alumno que por primera vez se enfrenta al mundo del derecho una aproximación al Derecho Internacional Público contemporáneo así como a la Unión Europea y su Ordenamiento jurídico. Se trata de dos manifestaciones jurídicas muy distintas a las que los alumnos del Título de Grado van a estudiar en las distintas ramas del Derecho interno español, pero que al mismo tiempo tienen en este un grado de penetración cada vez más importante. La asignatura está p

Open Educational Resources Infokit
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are increasingly being made available by Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) institutions. They are resources licensed in a way such that they can be re-used, re-purposed, re-mixed and re-distributed. There are a number of license options for individuals or organisations considering releasing OERs, perhaps the most common being various iterations of the Creative Commons license. This infoKit, as with the whole of the JISC infoNet website, is itself
World TB Day Tuberculosis in the 21st Century: Joel Spicer
Joel Spicer, Senior Strategist at the Stop TB Partnership, presents statistical data on the "Global Burden of TB" and what needs to be done to lower the death rate of tuberculosis.
A retrospective look at space shuttle Atlantis.
Active Learning in Advanced Analytical Chemistry, a course for first year graduate students
The introductory lecture course for graduate-level analytical chemistry is commonly understood to require students to be broadly aware of analytical tools, current problems, and methods for linking problems and measurements. This article describes an active learning approach to this course, using review articles to focus discussion and reveal gaps in student knowledge. Students give most of the course\'s lectures, with grades based on lectures, exams, and a term paper.
GC Splitless Injection Animation
This site is one in a series of sites with very good animations related to separations. This animation deals specifically with splitless injection in GC. The animations are short (one to two minutes) and can easily be shown in class as part of a lecture. They are extremely helpful in illustrating key components and concepts of chromatographic systems. Users are encouraged to explore the site and the other brief animations as well. Separate links to other simulations by the same company (TRSL) ar
RSC.org: IR Spectroscopy
This video on YouTube covers the basic principles of infrared spectroscopy. Very useful for a newcomer to IR. This video of 6.5 minute would be useful in a classroom setting or students interested in the technique.
RSC.org: Proton NMR
This video, distributed on YouTube by the Royal Society of Chemistry is on the basic principles of NMR. This video is a good primer and would be very useful to supplement introductory lectures on NMR. The video covers the basic theory behind a 1H spectrum and goes through actually acquiring a spectrum. The top-off look of the instrument is useful and how the superconducting magnet is mounted. Good for a basic introduction.
This video, distributed on YouTube by the Royal Society of Chemistry is on the basic principles of HPLC. This video is a short primer (~5 min) which introduces the basic technique and instrumentation. The theory of HPLC is described at a very basic level. Separation theory is presented in a qualitiative fashion, and both the mechanics and applications of HPLC were generally described. The ultimate strength of this video is the general nature of the content that makes it appealing to a wide aud
Animations and Simulations in the Teaching of Analytical Sciences
This article by Cynthia Larive, published in the \"ABCs of Teaching Analytical Science\" series of the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, will be of interest to faculty members teaching courses in the analytical sciences. The article provides a good introduction to the animations, simulations, and other on-line resources available on the internet. More important, it encourages instructors to develop a teaching philosophy that emphasizes the use of these materials.
This site is a good freshman or sophomore level introduction to diffraction and its application to studying crystal structure. Because it\'s very visual and interactive, it engages the student. It\'s not mathematical enough for an upper level course. The basics of diffraction are covered with excellent interactive demos. Demos are great as a supplement but not as a stand alone module on diffraction.
Rice virtual lab in statistics
This site is devoted to statistical tests and demonstrations of their use and was created with the support of the National Science Foundation. One section is a complete reference guide - the online statistics textbook, with detailed descriptions of all things statistical. The second, and most fun section, is simulations/demonstrations section where nearly twenty statistical tests are demonstrated with interactive Applets. Each Applet has clear instructions for use with details on the test demons
Biosensors and Other Medical and Environmental Probes
This site links an article from the Oak Ridge Nat\'l Laboratory that reviews publications dealing with biosensors and their applications. Although limited to work from ORNL\'s scientists, it contains several examples of cutting-edge sensor devices with sufficient background information linking their use to real-world applications. The narrative is written more in a story-telling fashion than as a journal report that contributes to its readability. The descriptions and graphic illustrations co
Helpful Hints for Field Sketching
This online article, from Biodiversity Counts, offers insight into the task of field sketching. After discussing the difference between seeing and observing, the article offers tips designed to help make students better at observational rendering. The six hints discussed are proportions, perspective, volume, simplifying, practicing a lot, and having fun.
