Teacher Training in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia
This resource is a research and publication survey, identifying on-line references to various aspects of teacher education in central and eastern Europe and Asia as of December 1999. The information contained in the resource is therefore not up to date, but no more recent survey of a similar nature has been located. The resource could be of interest to teacher educators and researchers with an interest in the development of ITE in Europe, although it is possible that some of the URLs are no long

This report presents an analysis of the potential support to Self-Regulated Learning granted by a communication environment developed to support teachers' collaboration on Learning Objects. The analysis is made by applying a check-list developed within the European project TELEPEERS.,Research report
WWG: a Distributed Infrastructure for Learning in Groups
This paper describes the experiences of learning and working in groups on the Computer Science studies at Virtual Campus of the Open University of Catalunya. Two communities have used a web based shared workspace tool to a) coordinate the task of tutors of a computer architecture course, and b) a problem based collaborative learning project with software engineering students. These experiences have lead to the design of WWG: a distributed infrastructure for distance learning in groups at Interne

Finding information in mathematics and statistics
This unit will help you to identify and use information in maths and statistics, whether for your work, study or personal purposes. Experiment with some of the key resources in this subject area, and learn about the skills which will enable you to plan searches for information, so you can find what you are looking for more easily. Discover the meaning of information quality, and learn how to evaluate the information you come across. You will also be introduced to the many different ways of organ
Five hours of high quality culture a week for all schoolchildren.
As headlined in the media, on Wednesday 13th February 2008 the Culture Secretary and the Children's Secretary jointly announced that schoolchildren should be offered five hours of ‘high quality culture' a week. They were speaking on the introduction of a £25 million pilot project to be run by a new body, the Youth Culture Trust.
Fundamentals of Program Evaluation
Fundamentals of Program Evaluation familiarizes students in different types of program evaluation, including needs assessment, formative research, process evaluation, monitoring of outputs and outcomes, impact assessment, and cost analysis. Students gain practical experience through a series of exercises involving the design of a conceptual framework, development of indicators, analysis of computerized service statistics, and development of an evaluation plan to measure impact. This course cover
2.2 The Cain and Hopkins thesis
Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period. But its sphere of economic influence extended far beyond the boundaries of the formal British Empire. This unit focuses on the economics of empire, using a case study of one town, Dundee in eastern Scotland, to explore this huge topic.
Quantitative Data Activity
The activity involves a set of data dealing with the percentage difference between measure calories and labeled calories of particular items, in two categories, per item and per gram. Students are asked to make stem-and-leaf plots, dotplots, and histograms of the two variables. The students are then asked to describe the distributions of the two variables: “per gram” and “per item” and compare the resulting distributions. The students are asked to use the appropriate descriptive statisti
Methods in Biostatistics II
Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples. Topics include discrete and continuous probability models; expectation and variance; central limit theorem; inference, including hypothesis testing and confidence for means, proportions, and counts; maximum likelihood estimation; sample size determinations; elementary non-parametric methods; graphical displays; and data transform
Principles of Industrial Hygiene
Principles of Industrial Hygiene provides an introduction to the field of industrial hygiene and to occupational health in general. The instructor focuses on introducing concepts, terminology, and methodology in the practice of industrial hygiene and identifies resource materials. The class would benefit those wishing to pursue a Master's degree in industrial hygiene, those wishing to complete a certificate in occupational health, or for students in allied health fields needing a basic understan
Language Learning Provision at Key Stage 2: Findings from the 2007 Survey
This is the DCSF funded statistical report “of the nature and extent of language learning provision at Key Stage 2 (KS2) in schools in England”, conducted by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER). Additionally, it tracks the progress of the 2010 target of the introduction of the KS2 entitlement to language learning within class time. It cites statistical evidence to support its findings.
Most students will have an intuitive sense that kinetic energy depends on how fast something is moving (speed) and how massive it is (mass). (We use speed instead of velocity, because energy is a scalar, and independent of direction.) They know that it hurts more in dodge ball when the ball is thrown with more speed than when it is thrown with less speed. They also know that is hurts more to drop a bowling ball on their foot than it does to drop a tennis ball. Exactly how mass, speed and kinetic
