Klartext handlar i dag om att Miljöpartiet säger att de kan tänka sig att samarbeta litegrann med regeringen. Vi berättar också om att myndigheten Kriminalvården kan ha lurats på pengar. Ett företag som har fått betalt för att ta hand om fångar, har istället släppt fångarna fria och behållit pengarna. Du får höra fler nyheter när du lyssnar på programmet.
One War We Shouldn't Avoid: A New Approach to Reducing the Cost of Future Catastrophes
In 2005, three major hurricanes -- Katrina, Rita and Wilma -- struck the U.S. Gulf Coast area, causing not just death and destruction, but also leading to insurance payments and federal disaster relief of more than $180 billion. Today, say the authors of a new book titled, At War with the Weather: Managing Large-Scale Risks in a New Era of Catastrophes, the U.S. is even more vulnerable to catastrophic losses. Written by Howard Kunreuther and Erwann Michel-Kerjan, with colleagues Neil Doherty, Ma
04 Oct 2010: The Fate of Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Examining the Legal Battle Behind the Science
The Science and Technology Policy Program of the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy invites you to attend a presentation on The Fate of Embryonic Stem Cell Research. At this event, experts will address recent court rulings that reinterpret the Dickey-Wicker Amendment, which prohibits the creation of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines from destroyed embryos. Federal funding currently is allowed for research using existing lines, all of which were created with private funds, but th
22 Oct 2010: Baker Institute Student Forum: Grade the President
With the 2010 midterm election rapidly approaching, the Baker Institute Student Forum presents a Rice University student-led discussion on the first two years of the Obama administration. Four students from the Rice University Young Democrats and four students from the Rice University Conservatives Forum will evaluate President Barack Obama in four major policy areas. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the conversation through a question-and-answer session with the panelists, and

Lecture 27 - 11/24/2010
Learning Objects 2: Standards, Metadata, Repositories, and LCMS
This book is the second in a four-volume series. It builds upon the first volume by taking an extended and in-depth look at theorists' and practitioners' efforts to consolidate current knowledge and praxis. This consolidation centers around conceptual and technological issues related to standards, metadata, repositories, and the concept of the LCMS (Learning Content Management System). Part I contains six chapters that focus upon LO concepts vis-à-vis architecture. A discussion of syntax, seman
Editing files and Emacs
This emacs lecture is given as part of the course G51UST, Unix Software Tools. The course gives an introduction to the Unix operating system. It teaches students how to use the Command Line Interface that is part of Unix and also teaches them how to write shell, sed and awk. In doing so the course covers the use of editors such as Emacs and vi with which the students can write their scripts. It is presented in 3 formats: * Screencast (video of the lecturer and presentation slides) * Au
Le projet TCAN TELEOS : Technology enhanced Learning in orthopaedic surgery
Le projet pr,TELEOS : Technology enhanced Learning in orthopaedic surgery
Conception of a simulator for a TEL system in orthopaedic surgery.
Within a research project whose aim is to promote the learning of percutaneous operation in orthopedic surgery, we investigate some representation models of empirical, deductive, and perceptivo-gestural knowledge. From these models, we design an TEL system (Tecnological Enhaced Learning) This project belongs to a multidisciplinary field including computer, orthopedic surgery, medical imaging, didactic and cognitive sciences. The article presents the design principles of TEL with a particular int
Activity theory and learning from digital games: developing an analytical methodology
This text outlines the development of a methodology that could credibly answer Squire challenge to identify what, if anything, people are learning by playing games.
A Participatory Design Approach for the Support of Collaborative Learning and Knowledge Building in
Engagement in collaborative learning and knowledge building activities is still a big challenge for many workplace-learning designers. Especially in highly competitive environments people might be reluctant to give away too much of their tacit knowledge. A feeling of ownership and an involvement of the individual in the planning of the learning activities can be important motivational factors. In an international research project called IntelLEO - Intelligent Learning Extended Organization we in
