ASSIMILATE project - exploring assessment at Masters level
Key things about assessment - exploring assessment at Masters degree level in the UK and internationally. Assessment driving learning -Assessment is the major driving force on learning for most students. If assessment is well-designed, there are positive effects on how students go about their learning. Global literature has confirmed this over the last 30 years. (Boud, Mentkowski, Knight and Yorke and many others). -The design of assessment shapes students patterns of studying (marks as money) a
European Business Culture and Practice, Workbook 1: Describing and Analysing Culture for Business
These workbooks form a major part of the class programme in European Business Culture and Practice. They provide a framework within which we explore concepts of national (or regional) culture and the way it translates into organisational or business culture. They combine individual and group work, as understanding and working within cultural differences is necessarily a group activity. As your group progresses through the workbooks, you may evaluate the effectiveness of this framework for yourse
Delivering Sustainable Development: Activity 7
This activity will allow you to explore the theoretical backgrounds to both the ecological footprint and the carbon footprint, so that you understand the ideas that underpin these indicators. You will examine the application of ecological and carbon footprints at a variety of geographical scales from the individual to the global. This will allow you to develop a critical understanding of the potential these tools have to engage with sustainability agendas, together with an appreciation of the de
"What them old bones can teach us"
This document contains activities for tutors to offer to students. These activities develop from the basic understanding of the ethical handling of human bone remains and develop through to the understanding of skeletal anatomy. As the activities develop, the role of foresnsic pathology of skeletal remains is examined. There are also basic activities to introduce the concepts of archaeology and context of the materials recovered in an archaeologial setting.
Reaching the Right Customers

Fundamentals of Ecology, Fall 2003
Basic subject in ecology: understanding the flow of energy and materials through ecosystems, and what regulates the distribution and abundance of organisms. Productivity and biogeochemical cycles in ecosystems; trophic dynamics; community structure and stability; competition and predation; evolution and natural selection; population growth; and physiological ecology. Emphasis on aquatic systems.
Introduction to Computer Science: Programming Abstractions
This course is the natural successor to Programming Methodology and covers such advanced programming topics as recursion, algorithmic analysis, and data abstraction using the C++ programming language, which is similar to both C and Java. If you've taken the Computer Science AP exam and done well (scored 4 or 5) or earned a good grade in a college course, Programming Abstractions may be an appropriate course for you to start with, but often Programming Abstractions (Accelerated) is a better choic
Lessons from failure and success
Sir Stuart Rose, Chairman of Marks & Spencer, and Ms Miranda Curtis, President of Liberty Global Japan, give their top business tips on learning from mistakes, why you need to take some risk in order to be successful, stamina and re-inventing oneself throughout one's career. Nice people, they explain, can get to the top - but you need to be tough!

Cancer and DNA
The Flash animation source file is based on the cancer biology tutorial designed to develop a strong conceptual understanding of the complex cellular processes of DNA replication, damage and repair pathways in cancer.

It can be used in lots of ways including: interpreting feedback from tutors on written work; avoiding common deficiencies in your writing and therefore avoiding the need for the comments to be written; using it as a checklist before handing written work in; for peer assessment of written work
Student diversity and the international dimension
This PowerPoint presentation explores student diversity and internationalisation. It is aimed at those working with students in HE. It covers ALT implications, global perspectives and working with disability.
2.002 Mechanics and Materials II (MIT)
This course provides Mechanical Engineering students with an awareness of various responses exhibited by solid engineering materials when subjected to mechanical and thermal loadings; an introduction to the physical mechanisms associated with design-limiting behavior of engineering materials, especially stiffness, strength, toughness, and durability; an understanding of basic mechanical properties of engineering materials, testing procedures used to quantify these properties, and ways in which t
Professional Writing - Screnwriting, Novel Writing, Fiction, Feature Writing, Business Writing, Writ
Our taster sessions give students the chance to develop and build on the knowledge and understanding of a particular writing form. It's also an opportunity for you to develop the independent practice skills crucial to a professional writer and an opportunity to develop writing industry contacts. All MA Professional Writing students spend time exploring different forms of writing before deciding which area they wish to specialise. Specialisms might be in the field of Business Writing, Features W
Life Cycle Analysis and Carbon Footprinting Question Bank
Question Bank for Part Three of Greening Business: Life cycle analysis is a relatively new approach to environmental management which seeks to understand the impact of all related aspects of a product or service over its whole life cycle from production to disposal. An understanding of life cycle analysis is essential to a holistic understanding of the impact of products and services and hence the environmental benefits of changes to processes. It also underpins the process of carbon footprint
Understanding and classifying a stroke
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. It is also the single leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Classification of stroke is crucial in planning treatment and is a good indication of prognosis This Learning Object helps individuals understand how to make the diagnosis of stroke using the Oxford Stroke classification. It is suitable for any health care professionals involved in the management of stroke but especially doctors and medical stud
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
Energy resources: wave energy
The energy carried by ocean waves derives from a proportion of the wind energy transferred to the ocean surface by frictional drag. So, ultimately it stems from the proportion of incoming solar energy that drives air movement. Just how much energy is carried by a single wave depends on the wind speed and the area of ocean surface that it crosses; wave height, wavelength, and therefore wave energy, are functions of the distance or fetch over which the wind blows. This unit considers the power of
