Lecture 32 - 11/17/2010
3.021J Introduction to Modeling and Simulation (MIT)
This course explores the basic concepts of computer modeling and simulation in science and engineering. We'll use techniques and software for simulation, data analysis and visualization. Continuum, mesoscale, atomistic and quantum methods are used to study fundamental and applied problems in physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanics, engineering, and biology. Examples drawn from the disciplines above are used to understand or characterize complex structures and materials, and complement e
The reasons for attrition
This paper focuses on a) to reflect on an approach, decisions and subsequent knowledge with regard to non response and b) to discuss the "attrition survey", rather than discussing the actual results of an overall longitudinal study. This should be linked to the paper "student experiences of enterprise education"
SP.691 Studies in Women's Life Narratives: Feminist Inquiry (MIT)
Feminist Inquiry starts with questions: What is feminism? What is feminist scholarship? Is feminist scholarship inherently interdisciplinary? Must feminist work interrogate disciplinarity? Must feminists collaborate? Our aim is to promote the development of feminist theory and methods by providing a forum for sharing, assessing, discussing and debating strategies used by feminist scholars to study topics such as gender and the body; sexualities; color and whiteness; migration, colonialism, and i

SP.401 Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies (MIT)
<p>This course is designed as an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of Women's and Gender Studies, an academic area of study focused on the ways that sex and gender manifest themselves in social, cultural, and political contexts. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. This semester you will become acquainted with many of the critical questions and concepts f
17.418 Field Seminar: International Relations Theory (MIT)
This seminar provides an overview of the field of international relations. Each week, a different approach to explaining international relations will be examined. By surveying major concepts and theories in the field, the seminar will also assist graduate students in preparing for the comprehensive examination and further study in the department's more specialized offerings in international relations.
11.165 Infrastructure in Crisis: Energy and Security Challenges (MIT)
The purpose of this seminar is to examine efforts in developing and advanced nations and regions to create, finance and regulate infrastructure systems and services that affect energy security. We will introduce a variety of methodological and disciplinary perspectives. During the seminar, students will explore how an energy crisis can be an opportunity for making fundamental changes to improve collapsing infrastructure networks. The sessions will be used to introduce the challenges to modern s
21A.226 Ethnic and National Identity (MIT)
An introduction to the cross-cultural study of ethnic and national identity. We examine the concept of social identity, and consider the ways in which gendered, linguistic, religious, and ethno-racial identity components interact. We explore the history of nationalism, including the emergence of the idea of the nation-state, as well as ethnic conflict, globalization, identity politics, and human rights.
ESD.83 Doctoral Seminar in Engineering Systems (MIT)
In establishing the Engineering Systems Division, MIT has embarked on a bold experiment – bringing together diverse areas of expertise into what is designed to be a new field of study. In many respects, the full scale and scope of Engineering Systems as a field is still emerging. This seminar is simultaneously designed to codify what we presently know and to give direction for future development.

Researching Mobile Learning: Frameworks, Tools and Research Designs
This edited collection sets out the issues and requirements for mobile learning research, and presents recent efforts to specify appropriate theoretical frameworks, methods and tools. Through their accounts of projects, leading researchers present their experiences and approaches to key aspects of mobile learning research such as data capture and analysis, and offer structured guidance and suggestions on adopting and extending these approaches.
Constructing a plaster model of the dentition - Part 2
Before the construction of a dental prosthesis (in this case a crown for a damaged tooth) can begin, a model is made from an artificial stone using an impression of the mouth taken in silicone. This video shows the initial stages of making a model suitable for making a customised dental prosthesis. From set of videos used in Advanced Restorative Course in School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield.
A chapter which describes the pathways and mechanisms of vesicular traffic between different cellular compartments. It also includes a basic description of the cytoskeleton, and its role in intracellular transport. The unit contains 45 figures and is intended as ~7 hours study at level 2/3. It also provides background reading for the experimental investigation 'Immuno-electron Microscopy' (http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1580).
Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Immuno-electron-microscopy
A virtual laboratory that includes immuno-gold labelling and transmission electron micrography (immuno-EM). It allows the student to study intracellular-traffic pathways of two cell-surface receptor molecules, following stimulation of the cells with their specific ligand, for different time periods. The programme first introduces the theory underlying the techniques and includes a video of EM work in a real laboratory. The student is then taken through a series of questions which requires them t
SRXIND005A: Promote compliance with laws and legal principles: Trainers guide
Trainers guide. This resource forms the trainers guide for the unit of competency, SRXIND005A: Promote Compliance with Laws and Legal Principles. It is part of the National Community Recreation, Fitness, Outdoor Recreation and Sport Industry Training Package. The resource primarily consists of guidance to the learner on how and where to find information and giving them tasks to apply the information.
