"Understanding Lasers and Fiberoptics, Spring 2008"
"Lasers are essential to an incredibly large number of applications. Today, they are used in bar code readers, compact discs, medicine, communications, sensors, materials processing, computer printers, data processing, 3D-imaging, spectroscopy, navigation, non-destructive testing, chemical processing, color copiers, laser "shows", and in the military. There is hardly a field untouched by the laser. But what exactly is so unique about lasers that makes them so effective? This brief video course i
"Special Topics: Genetics, Neurobiology, and Pathophysiology of Psychiatric Disorders, Fall 2008"
" An opportunity for graduate study of advanced subjects in Brain and Cognitive Sciences not included in other subject listings. The key topics covered in this course are Bipolar Disorder, Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Genetics of Psychiatric Disorder, DISC1, Ca++ Signaling, Neurogenesis and Depression, Lithium and GSK3 Hypothesis, Behavioral Assays, CREB in Addiction and Depressive Behaviors, The GABA System-I, The GABA System-II, The Glutamate Hypothesis of Schizophrenia, The Dopamine Pathway and
The Cloning of Cells
In this lesson, students continue their education on cells in the human body. They discuss stem cells and how engineers are involved in the research of stem cell behavior. They learn about possible applications of stem cell research and associated technologies, such as fluorescent dyes for tracking the replication of specific cells.
What a Drag! Lesson
Students learn about friction and drag two different forces that convert energy of motion to heat. Both forces can act on a moving object and decrease its velocity. Students learn examples of friction and drag, and suggest ways to reduce the impact of these forces. The equation that governs common frictional forces is introduced, and during a hands-on activity, students experimentally measure a coefficient of friction.
ESD.69 Seminar on Health Care Systems Innovation (MIT)
This seminar applies a systems perspective to understand health care delivery today, its stakeholders and problems as well as opportunities. Students are introduced to the 'systems perspective' that has been used successfully in other industries, and will address the introduction of new processes, technologies and strategies to improve overall health outcomes. Students are assigned to teams to work on a semester‐long group project, in collaboration with staff of a nearby Boston hospital.
Testing the Caverns - Optional
This activity provides a fun, activity-based closure to the Asteroid Impact unit. Students build model caverns using paper mache or clay and bury them in a tray of sand. Next, they test the models by dropping balls onto them to simulate an asteroid hitting the earth. By molding paper mache around a balloon to form a dome, or around a small cardboard box to form a rectangular structure, students will be able to build their caverns.
Students extend their knowledge of the skeletal system to biomedical engineering design, specifically the concept of artificial limbs. Students relate the skeleton as a structural system, focusing on the leg as structural necessity. They learn about the design considerations involved in the creation of artificial limbs, including materials and sensors.

2.8.1 A case study
The power of graphics should not the underestimated. They can express information clearly and simply. This unit will help you to assess which style of graphic to use in different situations.
Global Climate Change Lesson
Students learn how the greenhouse effect is related to global warming and how global warming impacts our planet, including global climate change. Extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and how we react to these changes are the main points of focus of this lesson.
Loss of sea otters, loss of kelp forests
Events that affect one population typically affect other populations. This phenomenon is demonstrated by the otter-urchin-kelp connection.
An analysis or style: How can I analyse the figures of speech used in a literary text
At the end of this lesson the student will be able to: distinguish figures of speech in literary text extracts and assess their impact when they are read aloud.

Retail Marketing: merchandising
This course examines the importance of the atmospherics and visual merchandising and describes how a retail store image is conveyed to consumers. These concepts are combined with the customer service with the objectives of communicating with the consumer in the point of sale and to gain competitive advantage. Greater awareness of the would benefit students entering the sector. Core module designed to build on the student’s knowledge of merchandising in the marketing field. Retail Managers need
Noves tecnologies aplicades a l'educació
La incorporació de les Noves Tecnologies (NNTT) –o millor indicat, les Tecnologies de la Informació i la Comunicació (TIC)— en el context escolar és –o comença a ser— una realitat cada vegada més quotidiana. En el marc dels estudis de Magisteri, les TIC les entenem: com a matèria a aprendre en la formació incial del mestre (alfabetització digital) per a aplicar-la en aquestos estudis; com a matèria per aprendre i seguir aprenent intelectualment al llarg de tota la vida; i com a
South Boston High School, tape 1
African American students board buses at South Boston High School. Boston Police officers are stationed near the school. Police cruisers escort buses to and from the school. Jerome Wynegar (Headmaster, South Boston High School) stands in the schoolyard. White students exit the school after the buses depart. A passerby tells the camera crew that their presence causes a disturbance.
Documentary told from the point of view of a middle-aged Dutch man who visits his older marine biologist brother who lives in the Galapagos Islands. He explores the nature, history, and inhabitants of the island while observing and commenting on his brother's ability to communicate with nature. Contains beautiful scenes of the islands and their wildlife, while subtly commenting on man's interference on the islands. Interesting in that approximately half of the work consists of still shots. In Ge
Fundamentals of Physics, II
This is a continuation of Fundamentals of Physics, I (PHYS 200), the introductory course on the principles and methods of physics for students who have good preparation in physics and mathematics. This course covers electricity, magnetism, optics and quantum mechanics.
