Genetic Analysis - Question Sets
The Genetic Analysis SBLi is a set of scenarios designed to support an undergraduate course in Genetics. In the scenarios the student plays the role of a genetics researcher, and performs simulated experiments to reinforce concepts taught in lectures. This project is part of the the Higher Education Academy's UK Centre for Bioscience Open Educational Resources programme. This package contains question sets extracted from the Genetic Analysis Scenarios so that these can be easily used seperately.
Engineering and Policy Analysis
In contemporary society, many of the most vexing issues we face cannot be solved by technology alone. Engineering excellence must be coupled with insight into societal needs and the mastery of project and process management tools. At the intersection of technology and public policy TU Delft's MSc Programme in Engineering and Policy Analysis (EPA) is an international interdisciplinary programme, designed to provide its graduates with a unique combination of technical, analytical and management
Policy Analysis of Multi-Actor Systems
This course is about solving complex problems. Our favorite problems are not just technically complex but also characterized by the presence of many different social actors that hold conflicting interests, objectives, and perceptions and act strategically to get the best out of a problem situation. This course offers guidance for policy analysts who want to assess if and how their analysis could be of help, based on the premise that problem formulation is the cornerstone in addressing complex pr
Cavitation on Ship Propellers
Summary: Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course
Acoustic Remote Sensing and Sea Floor Mapping
The course treats the following topics: - Relevant physical oceanography - Elements of marine geology (seafloor topography, acoustical properties of sediments and rocks) - Underwater sound propagation (ray acoustics, ocean noise) - Interaction of sound with the seafloor (reflection, scattering) - Principles of sonar (beamforming) - Underwater acoustic mapping systems (single beam echo sounding, multi-beam echo sounding, sidescan sonar) - Data analysis (refraction corrections, digital terrain mo

Description not set
African American Studies 40A: African American Studies
This course is an interdisciplinary introduction to important historical, cultural, literary, and political issues concerning African Americans. Through critical readings of literary, artistic, and filmic texts, this course provides an overview of African American experiences from the 17th through mid-20th centuries. Emphasis will be placed on developing an understanding of the historical and cultural experiences of African Americans from the beginning of the Transatlantic Slave Trade through th
Concepts in Economic Evaluation
Describes how economic theory is linked to economic evaluation techniques like cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis and to introduce students to many concepts that are specific to economic evaluation.
Methods in Biostatistics II
Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples.
Should Students Use Their Private Laptop Computers for Study Purposes?
Project and Problem Based Learning has become a standard method of teaching at Technikum Wien. In the course of Computer Science students used their own Laptop Computers for all lessons. If students could not afford a laptop, one was provided by the department. The over all results of this experiment have been very promising. It was possible to reduce the total costs of teaching, mainly because less support for the student laptops was needed. Even more important, most teaching obstacles previous
Andrea Coville, Relevance | Talks at Google
On June 17, 2014, Andrea Coville, CEO of Brodeur Partners, visited Google's Cambridge, MA office to discuss her book, Relevance: The Power to Change Minds and Behavior and Stay Ahead of the Competition. Organizations spend billions of dollars annually in an attempt to win customers, move products, and enhance their brand image. However, according to Ms. Coville, many of these efforts are missing an essential element: relevance. She draws on original research and two decades of experience to off
Informational technologies in resolving the social issues of school communities in Uzbekistan
This article examines the experience of 40 schools of Uzbekistan in usage of Informational technologies in resolving the social issues of their communities. The article describe the projects that were used by schools in the framework of the "Global Connections and Exchange - Uzbekistan" programme during the 2005-2007 academic years, and results of the projects and their positive experience.
Changes in education: implications for teacher education.

Building Bridges within Learning Communities through Ontologies and "Thematic Objects"
Communication through artefacts, in the sense of objects (co-)constructed by learners, is a well known mechanism in synchronous shared workspace environments. In this article, we explore the potential of extending this principle to heterogeneous, anonymous and asynchronous learner communities by drawing on existing work, e.g. in the areas of "social navigation" and recommender systems. A new ingredient is the description and provision of "thematic objects" embedded in a task/activity context. De
