Learning in the first professional job: the first year of full time employment after college for acc
This paper reports findings from the first phase of a four-year research project funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council as part of its Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The major component of this project is a longitudinal study of trainee accountants, graduate trainee engineers, and newly qualified nurses in England. This critical period of introduction to professional work has not been previously studied by a longitudinal series of observations and interviews, though a n

Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P

Dopo Bruner. Opzioni e prospettive per la ricerca didattica e la formazione degli insegnanti nel XXI
Ricerca didattica, riforma di strutture e riforma del curricolo: un intreccio problematico. Cultura, scuola e ricerca didattica. La cruna dell’ago si fa più sottile: la ricerca didattica tra conoscenza e concettualizzazione. Una storia…per posizionarci meglio. Una rivoluzione che fa fatica ad imporsi nei centralismi di tutte le stagioni. La modulazione degli apprendimenti, ovvero un curricolo per soglie di padronanza. Organizzazione degli insegnamenti e teorie dell'istruzione. Dopo Piaget:
Energy Saving Technologies
Dr. Angela Belcher from MIT talks about how her lab makes solar cells and batteries with living organisms. Her former student Shakeel Avadhany, CEO and co-founder of Levant Power, introduces GenShock, a novel technology that harvests energy from vehicle shocks and transforms it into electricity.

Using Internet Communications, Summer 2008
Using Internet Communication enhances students' theoretical understanding of electronic communication and their ability to communicate as professionals, scholars, and citizens using the Internet. Participants learn core communication theoretical models and principles, and apply them to electronic communication methods that enhance interpersonal, small group, and public interactions. These methods include electronic meetings, discussion forums, co-authoring tools, audio, and video.
11.208 Introduction to Computers in Public Management II (MIT)
Second of two modules facilitating a basic understanding of computing in planning and public management. Students develop problem-solving skills using computer-based tools for "what-if" analyses. Emphasis on spatial analysis using geographic information systems and database query tools.
4.285 Research Topics in Architecture: Citizen-Centered Design of Open Governance Systems (MIT)
In this seminar, students will design and perfect a digital environment to house the activities of large-scale organizations of people making bottom-up decisions, such as with citizen-government affairs, voting corporate shareholders or voting members of global non-profits and labor unions. A working Open Source prototype created last semester will be used as the starting point, featuring collaborative filtering and electronic agent technology pioneered at the Media Lab. This course focuses on d
3.14 Physical Metallurgy (MIT)
The central point of this course is to provide a physical basis that links the structure of metals with their properties. With this understanding in hand, the concepts of alloy design and microstructural engineering are also discussed, linking processing and thermodynamics to the structure and properties of metals.
Sustainability Living in Practice
When he was nine Satish joined the wandering brotherhood of Jain monks. At 18, he became a campaigner for land reform, working to turn Gandhi's vision of renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. Satish Kumar is a visiting fellow at Schumacher College, a residential centre for study of ecological and spiritual values. He founded the Small School, with ecological and spiritual values in its curriculum.
The Wisdom of Bees
When Michael O'Malley first took up beekeeping he thought it would be a nice hobby to share with his son. But he noticed that bees not only work together to achieve a common goal but, in the process, create a remarkably productive organisation. O'Malley's new book The Wisdom of Bees shows what bees can teach managers and provides insight into decision-making, communication and forward planning. This event celebrates the publication of Michael O'Malleys new book The Wisdom of Bees: What the Hive
