Internationalising the Curriculum: an annotated bibliography
This annotated bibliography comprises a selection of books, journal articles, conference papers and other resources on the subject of the internationalised curriculum. It has been compiled initially from a library of global sources originally brought together as part of the review of literature in the field, commissioned by the Higher Education Academy in 2006 (Caruana, V. and Spurling, N., 2007). This has been up-dated to include more recent work. The central criterion for selection of material
Using Portfolio's for Learning and Assessment - A staff handbook
This resource offers guidance for staff on introducing students to portfolios to be used for learning and assessment. It is based on experience gained while working on an FDTL Project “Promoting the Development of key skills through the use of portfolios” (2002 - 2005). The outlined Portfolio Workshops in this handbook have been developed as a result of the Project activities at Leeds Metropolitan University, but are also supported by the findings from the project as a whole. There are 2 acc
Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;

Article :: Getting Familiar with Paths in Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
One of the most important innovations in Flash was a new set of tools that made creating vector graphics as simple and intuitive as creating bitmap graphics. This excerpt, adapted from Adobe Flash CS4 Professional How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques (Peachpit Press, ISBN 0-321-58004-4), discusses paths, the most basic element of a vector drawing.
Prescribing Heroin: the logical next step for Canada?
October 30, 2013 - Panel Discussion Prescribing Heroin explores the questions: what would an ongoing prescription heroin program in Canada look like, and how can we get there? Five years after the NAOMI clinical trial, which confirmed worldwide research demonstrating the effectiveness of prescribing heroin for those chronically dependent drug users who have not responded to other forms of treatment, this health intervention is still not available anywhere in Canada. The panel discussion fol
