The use of ICT in Physical Education in the Exeter Initial Teacher Training Partnership (R&DA 2: 13)
This project investigated the way ICT is used In Physical Education (PE) and the opportunities for enhancing its use. Trainees and tutors from one provider took part in the research. The researchers found that practice and the provision of resources were ad-hoc but that the potential for the use of a rich variety of ICT in PE was not realised. In particular ICT applications in PE such as digital video cameras and video analysis software, heart rate monitors were quite distinct from the contrib
Mobility and school disruption
This is a research report which uses statistical analysis of National Curriculum performance tests and information about pupil mobility in order to consider whether a child’s education is affected by turnover and disruption in the composition of their school cohort. It uses test scores at age 11 and compares them to retrospective test scores from the same pupils at age 7, and then draws conclusions from the statistical analysis in relation to whether high pupil mobility is disadvantageous for
Methods in Biostatistics I
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
Beyond the Third Way in Labour Law: Towards the Constitutionalization of Labour Law?
Professor Collins argues that New Labour was responsible for the real break from the political settlements of the Trade Disputes Act 1906. He suggests that a new social contract is required that constitutionalizes social and economic rights. Blair's Third Way agenda was radically different from the early twentieth century political settlement in three respects. First, it was largely uninterested in the distribution of wealth in society; second, it conducted direct regulation of working condition
The hidden secrets of US innovation
Professor Alan Hughes, Director of the Centre for Business Research at Judge Business School, has studied the US innovation-led growth story. He explains that businesses can learn much from copying the US, but cautions that in order to create a truly effective innovation programme, the underlying factors that have driven the recent growth in the US need to be fully understood and coupled with an analysis of what is unique about each organisation's own economy.
Lessons from history
Could the current financial crisis have been predicted from historians knowledge of past down turns and depressions globally? Dr David Chambers, University Lecturer in Finance and Deputy Director of the School's Master of Finance programme, thinks so. An analysis of what happened in the crash of the 1930s may prove a good way to predict how long it may take us to get out of the current financial difficulties. Structural problems, Dr Chambers says, need to be faced up to before a recovery is like
In this unit we will examine a range of Napoleonic imagery by David, Gros and a number of other artists, beginning with comparatively simple single-figure portraits and moving on to elaborate narrative compositions such as Jaffa and Eylau. In so doing, we will have three main aims: to develop your skills of visual analysis, to examine the relationship between art and politics and to introduce you to some of the complex issues involved in interpreting works of art.

2.51 Intermediate Heat and Mass Transfer (MIT)
Analysis, modeling, and design of heat and mass transfer processes with application to common technologies. Unsteady heat conduction in one or more dimensions, steady conduction in multidimensional configurations, numerical simulation; forced convection in laminar and turbulent flows; natural convection in internal and external configurations; phase change heat transfer; thermal radiation, black bodies, grey radiation networks, spectral and solar radiation; mass transfer at low rates, evaporatio
21M.732 Costume Design for the Theater (MIT)
Intermediate workshop designed for students who have a basic understanding of the principles of theatrical design and who want a more intensive study of costume design and the psychology of clothing. Students develop designs that emerge through a process of character analysis, based on the script and directorial concept. Period research, design, and rendering skills are fostered through practical exercises. Instruction in basic costume construction, including drafting and draping, provide tools
HST.583 Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis (MIT)
This team taught, multidisciplinary course covers the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. The challenges inherent in advancing our knowledge about brain function using fMRI are presented first to put the work in context. The course then provides in depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals. Parenchymal and cerebrovascular neuroanato

Classical mechanics in a computational framework. Lagrangian formulation. Action, variational principles. Hamilton's principle. Conserved quantities. Hamiltonian formulation. Surfaces of section. Chaos. Liouville's theorem and Poincar, integral invariants. Poincar,-Birkhoff and KAM theorems. Invariant curves. Cantori. Nonlinear resonances. Resonance overlap and transition to chaos. Properties of chaotic motion. Transport, diffusion, mixing. Symplectic integration. Adiabatic invariants. Many-dime
1.020 Ecology II: Engineering for Sustainability (MIT)
This course covers the use of ecological and thermodynamic principles to examine interactions between humans and the natural environment.. Topics include conservation and constitutive laws, box models, feedback, thermodynamic concepts, energy in natural and engineered systems, basic transport concepts, life cycle analysis and related economic methods. Topics such as renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, green buildings, and mitigation of climate change are illustrated with quantitative case
14.74 Foundations of Development Policy (MIT)
Explores the foundations of policy making in developing countries. Goal is to spell out various policy options and to quantify the trade-offs between them. Special emphasis on education, health, gender, fertility, adoption of technological innovation, and the markets for land, credit, and labor. From the course home page: Course Description In this course, we will study the different facets of human development: education, health, gender, the family, land relations, risk, informal and formal

17.537 Politics and Policy in Contemporary Japan (MIT)
This subject is designed for upper level undergraduates and graduate students as an introduction to politics and the policy process in modern Japan. The semester is divided into two parts. After a two-week general introduction to Japan and to the dominant approaches to the study of Japanese history, politics and society, we will begin exploring five aspects of Japanese politics: (1) Party Politics (2) Electoral Politics (3) Interest Group Politics and (4) Bureaucratic Politics. The second part o
Global and Domestic Imbalances: Why Rural China is the Key
Contrary to popular thinking, China owes its astonishing economic expansion not to far-sighted government policy but to hundreds of millions of entrepreneurial peasants. Yasheng Huang’s research reveals not only how small-scale rural businesses created China’s miracle but how that nation’s recovery from the global recession an
Introduction This unit looks at the role of innovation in the development of industries and considers how production costs change as sales increase and as new technology is introduced into the production process. It looks at the relation between consumer demand for a good and that good's price, and at how the relation between output and production costs in different markets can dramatically affect industry structure. In describing these issues, the unit introduces the range of activities that constitutes
