Using simulation technology to create real world experiences.
Dr. Gallagher uses a sophisticated medical mannequin to train residency students how to treat patients in emergency situations. The mannequin exhibits most of the physiological properties of a real patient such as respiration, heart beat and blood pressure. Injuries can be simulated and medication administered to the mannequin. These highly realistic situations lead to a high degree of student learning and retention. Students also work with actors to simulate emotional situations and doctor
Making learning relevant to the real world and teaching the whole student.
Dr Ferguson discusses the importance of making connections with and between his students to help them succeed in his courses. He encourages them to be reflective about their own and other student’s responses to questions. One of his favorite methods of teaching novices is to model the process of expert problem solving in the classroom while vocalizing about the thought process as he does so. He is willing to divert planned classroom activities in lieu of getting students to think about the
Real world problem based learning and the use of simulations
Michael incorporates real problems from the business world into his courses. He contacts former students, potential and current employers to get these problems. In the interview Michael defines the characteristics of good problems for use in a course. He uses Facebook to maintain connections with graduates and invite former students to give guest lectures. Students work in teams sharing laptops within the classroom. They develop individual solutions that are then combined into a group solut

The search for new medicinal products is one of the major driving forces behind the development and application of new synthetic methods. This unit focuses on a specific case study, which follows the development of a drug for the treatment of high blood pressure. It is a particularly good example of the application of organic chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry, and illustrates the scientific processes that are involved in the development of any new drug.
The genetic manipulation of plants and animals and their use in agriculture is one of the most controversial scientific developments of recent times. This unt takes a look at the 'science behind the headlines' and the complex interactions between scientific and social factors. By the end of the unit it's hoped that you will have a clearer idea of both what is GM makes possible as well as what may be thought desirable.

According to the website, "It is no accident that many sociology instructors and students are first drawn to sociology because they want to learn a body of knowledge that could help them make a difference in the world at large. Steve Barkan’s Sociology: Understanding and Changing the Social World is designed for this audience. It presents a sociological understanding of society but also a sociological perspective on how to change society, while maintaining the structure and contents of the bes
Raw census data from the Biodiversity Consortium Courseware Unit 'Kruger World', with additional information on the sampling methods used to census the ungulates of Kruger National Park. Also covers some background information on indices and models. Should be used in conjunction with 'Measuring Ecological Diversity'.
Complete version: This Biodiversity Consortium courseware 'World' unit uses the large ungulates in the Kruger National Park as a basis for exploring various aspects of species diversity. You can interactively sample various habitats in the Kruger National Park, and obtain counts of the different ungulates present. These data can then be used to plot a variety of different diversity indices and abundance models. Full instructions for this sampling program are available in the courseware unit
This package provides background information to the Kruger National Park in terms of its ecology. This could then be used either in conjunction with a fieldguide on Kruger's wildlife or could be used as a partner to a course on Kruger's botanical wealth.
