How does the Moby-Go resources impact teaching and learning in the sample room?
The purpose of this research is to consider to what extent the moby-go could be used to enhance teaching and learning in the sample room studio. A qualitative study was carried out in which I focused on using the visualiser, the cam-corder and the laptop to ascertain to what extent these various pieces of equipment could be imbedded in teaching and their effects on the students, the technicians and the tutor. I have constantly sought to make the delivery of my lessons more creative, engaging
Interview with Professor Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf
Professor Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf was one of the grandfathers of Himalayan anthropology. Alan Macfarlane, one of his last PhD students at the School of Oriental and African Studies and now himself Professor of Anthropological Science at the Univesity of Cambridge, interviewed Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf in his house in Lode, near Cambridge, in June 1983. The interview was filmed on Sony U-Matic, a large format video tape, which is now obsolete but which has been digitised to DVCam, a
Cnoidal and sinusodail wave reflection from a laboratory sand beach
This study focuses on the evolution of accretional beach profiles under cnoidal and sinusoidal waves and on the reflection of those waves from the sand beach. The SUPERTANK test, STi0, conducted at Oregon State University in 1991 was reproduced at three different scales, 1:10, 1:8.5 and 1:11. Two tests were run at each scale by using sinusoidal and cnoidal waves. The results are compared and differences discussed for: energy spectra, reflection coefficients, phase angles between incident and ref
GPS and GNSS for Geospatial Professionals
This course cultivates a working knowledge of current and future capabilities of GPS and the emerging Global Navigation Satellite System.
Geospatial System Analysis and Design
The course provides the geospatial information system professional an overview of systems analysis and design with emphasis the concepts behind the design process including: business use case modeling, business object modeling, requirements definition, analysis and preliminary design, and, finally, detailed design and deployment. The concepts of the geospatial software and database development process are introduced and the limitations of current modeling techniques are addressed within the spat
Phosphorescence lifetime imaging in turbid media
In this dissertation we explore the use of highly scattered photons in an analog of conventional emission tomography. Through this technique we quantitatively reconstruct images of the spatial distribution of oxygen in turbid media. We begin with the mathematical description of diffusive light propagation in highly scattering systems and solve the forward problem. Numerical methods by which the forward problem is inverted are introduced next, enabling quantitative spatial image reconstruction. T
Determination of vertical fluxes of sulfur dioxide and dimethyl sulfide in the remote marine atmosph
Vertical fluxes of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) were determined by eddy correlation and an isotopic dilution atmospheric pressure ionization mass spectrometer (APIMS) on an aircraft platform. The sampling frequency of the isotopic dilution APIMS ranged from 1 Hz to 25 Hz for real-time measurements. Measurements were made near the surface in the marine boundary layer to over 6 km in the free troposphere. The APIMS demonstrated an average sensitivity of 80 cps/pptv for DMS and S
Renal, Fall 2007
The major objective of this sequence is for the students to obtain integrated information regarding the structure and function of the renal system, mainly the kidney, by attending lectures and participating in laboratory exercises. By the end of the sequence, we hope that the students will have acquired a working knowledge of: 1) how the various structural components in the kidney are specialized for processing the filtrate and producing urine, 2) what homeostatic mechanisms are involved in the
Case study of a professional development program: meaningful technology integration in secondary edu
This case study investigated the effects of the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of a professional development program to facilitate the meaningful integration of technology into the curriculum for secondary teachers at a large suburban school. This study addressed the problem of the high cost of technology for a district that had yielded disappointing levels of meaningful technology integration in the teaching and learning process. The professional development program was bas
Organic-inorganic hybrid mesoporous silica materials and their application as host matrix for protei
Transparent, organic-inorganic hybrid mesoporous silica materials have been prepared successfully via the acid-catalyzed hydrolysis and cocondensation of tetramethyl orthosilicate and various organosiloxanes via the nonsurfactant templated sol-gel process. The organic groups were attached to the silica matrix via the non-hydrolyzable Si-C covalent bond and functioned as network modifier. The synthetic conditions have been systematically studied and optimized. Nitrogen adsorption and transmission
Comprehension of emotion in neurodegenerative disorders
Recent evidence indicates that the posterior corpus callosum is smaller in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Conversely, it has been demonstrated that patients with frontal systems deficits also have degradation of the anterior corpus callosum. Although these investigations indicate possible morphological relationships between the corpus callosum and cortical structures in neurodegenerative disorders, the relationship between specific neuropsychological measure of cognitive functioning and
Lecture 22 - 11/12/2010
Every month we will give you a math/statistics brain teaser that lets you test your knowledge with a fun problem.Many of the ideas in these Teasers come from thoughts formed by some of the great mathematical/statistical geniuses in history.
Positioning and Navigation: Services for open educational practices
To choose suitable resources for personal competence development in the vast amount of open educational resources is a challenging task for a learner. Starting with a needs analysis of lifelong learners and learning designers we introduce two wayfinding services that are currently researched and developed in the framework of the Integrated Project TENCompetence. Then we discuss the role of these services to support learners in finding and selecting open educational resources and finally we give
Exploring Semantic Description and
Matching Technologies for Enhancing the
Automatic Composition of
In the implementation of e-learning frameworks, a problem still unsolved is how to use and integrate low-level learning services to compose more complex high-level services or tools that make sense to both tutors and learners. In that sense semantic description of Grid learning Services appears like a powerful tool to be used for discovering and matching learning services depending of a set of parameters inside the learning framework. These parameters must represent significant functional charac
A Grid-Based Approach for Processing Group Activity Log Files
The information collected regarding group activity in a collaborative learning environment requires classifying, structuring and processing. The aim is to process this information in order to extract, reveal and provide students and tutors with valuable knowledge, awareness and feedback in order to successfully perform the collaborative learning activity. However, the large amount of information generated during online group activity may be timeconsuming to process and, hence, can hinder the rea
Your Beating Heart
There are three lessons in this group. The first two provide students with the opportunity to learn about the circulatory system and conduct an experiment where they take their pulses after different types of activity. During the third lesson, a pediatrician explains how she checks a patient's heart and the ways that a healthy lifestyle (food and exercise) can keep students' hearts healthy.
