English Language Teaching: History, Approaches and Methods (2012)
This course aims to present a critical and analytical historical overview of the methods used in teaching foreign languages to young students and adults, especially as applied to English Language Teaching (ELT). While the study of concepts and general issues around teaching and learning will be brief until the 19th century, from this century onwards the main methods used will be analysed in more detail. The theoretical/informative presentation of methods addresses the theoretical and practical i

Lecture 6, "To Paint the Way the Spartans Spoke": Gavin Hamilton's The Death of Lucretia
Gavin Hamilton, a gifted Scotsman working in Rome, was an art dealer, excavator, tour guide, and pioneer neoclassical painter. His scene of a virtuous woman and her resolute avengers, taken from Livy's history of the earliest days of Rome, was a model for later artists in its blunt eloquence.
Being a 'good BRIC': how the rising BRIC economies can be a win-win for the global economy - Summer
As the 'are we'/'aren't we' debate continues around Britain's early or late emergence from the global recession it is clear that the so called 'BRIC' economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China are proving somewhat more resilient to the global economic downturn suffered by the Western economies. So how much can we learn from them about developing these new growing middle class markets abroad and how much do they still need our skill set in terms of their recent mergers and acquisitions? Boni So

This resource provides content and activities about averages. It gives examples of mean, median and mode and provides opportunities for learners to calculate each type.
This resource provides content and activities about measuring length. It introduces basic units of measurement, and presents opportunities for learners to estimate, read and convert measurements of length.
A high zinc brass that forms large grains of β phase (yellow areas, due to higher copper content) and subsequently grains of γ form on β grain boundaries and also on non-metallic inclusions in the alloy.
A cast iron with a relatively low carbon content. The sample has been normalised at 900 °C for 72 hours in order to refine the grain size. The microstructure consists of pearlite with graphite.
This set of video tutorials demonstrates how to create quizzes in Director and Lingo. The types of quiz include 'drag and drop' and answering questions using Text Input areas. These training videos assume the user has previous experience working with Director. This is a link to a website where the videos can be viewed from an index. The videos are also available to download from JorumOpen.
This is Mini Project documentation about creating and editing audio and video content. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc ( Hons ) in Multimedia Technology (course number 2ELE0075) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. It includes a project introduction and specification, day 1 and 2 project briefs and a creative brief. The objectives of this module are to demonstrate abilities to: o To plan, generate, s
This microstructure is generated via a peritectic reaction (L+ε = η), which bears some similarities to the more familiar eutectic reaction (L = α + β). Upon cooling from the liquid phase field, primary ε is formed, which can be seen here as a slightly darker phase than the sheath of η surrounding it. The η sheath is the product of a peritectic reaction between ε and liquid. The peritectic reaction rarely goes to completion, since the formation of η around the ε phase separates it from
The ‘RVC/FAO Guide to Veterinary Diagnostic Parasitology ‘is a collaborative project which provides a user-friendly computer-aided educational tool for lecturers in both the UK in the developing world. It focuses on the faecal examination of farm animals for helminth parasites. The techniques outlined in the program are designed for basic training and arranged to take the user step-by step through the procedures. Details of their application, limitations and guidelines for health and safety
