Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended

Contracting and Signaling, Winter 2008
Course prepares you to advise clients or your own organization on the design of contracts and screening policies when one of the parties has an information advantage over the other. For example, students study the design of patent licenses (the licensor knows more about the market), the design of social systems to reduce spam (the spam sender knows more about the content before the recipient decides whether to read), and the design of performance contracts for professional services (e.g., consul

Effect of transverse load on fiber bragg grating measurements (The)
The field of communications has been revolutionized by the advent of optical fiber. Optical fiber now connects most of the world carrying a vast amount of information through a very limited physical medium. To the materials engineer, optical fiber technology has stimulated interest in a new type of micro-sensor application, where the size, weight, and the ability to integrate the sensor into a material structure play a major role. Areas of interest currently include materials characterization, c

HEALth Case Studies
This program was designed for dental hygiene and dentistry students to help them learn about evidence-based dentistry and its role in providing quality dental care. This program uses patient-based case studies combined with interactive tools and activities to help students become effective consumers of oral health research data. They learn to locate, evaluate, and use the outcomes of research studies to improve patient assessment, diagnosis, clinical decision making, and treatment planning, as w
Westward Expansion Overview
A two minute video from the viewpoint of a pioneering family. Lacks insights and the ending is questionable as to merit.
Entomology in Action
Lesson 1 introduces students to the blow fly's life cycle and the accumulated degree hour (ADH) used by forensic entomologists for estimating the time of death. Lesson 2 introduces Dr. Krinsky's entomological work in solving a murder case in 1986. Students access several primary-source documents related to Dr. Krinsky's entomological work. Both lessons help students expand their understanding of a forensic entomologist's work and appreciate how scientists account for environmental/variable facto
Internet Scout Project
Developed by online museum educators, Pieces of Science is described as "an online gallery of sixteen educational resources related to a collection of historical science objects." The sixteen subjects are organized by grade level and include such topics as lighting rods, Apollo 8, a lunar module, Priestleyï¿½s physics project, and penicillin. Each page contains a variety of resources, but the lighting rod page, for example, explains the history of how Benjamin Franklin used lighting rods to s
Human Genetic Variation
This curriculum supplement offers activities exploring how genes and the environment influence human diversity, what role DNA sequences play in genetic differences, and more. Students are invited to assume the role of employees at a pharmaceutical company developing new drugs. A game helps show the links between genetic variation, environmental factors, and disease prevention. A family's case study on genetic variation testing exemplifies difficult moral and social questions for society.
Internet Scout Project
The "Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura is a NASA mission to study the Earth's ozone, air quality, and climate" by researching the composition, chemistry, and dynamics of the Earth's atmosphere. Visitors can learn how Aura is investigating three questions: Is the Earth's ozone layer recovering? Is air quality getting worse? How is Earth's climate changing? Researchers can find extensive details about the flight, spacecraft devices and specifications, and the data processing and validation. Visito
Synchronous computer mediated collaborative activities among collocated students: Conditions that ma
Synchronous collaborative activities are usually studied in conditions where teachers and students are physically separated. Is there any possibility to apply these activities when all participants are collocated? Does this collocated collaboration setting seems meaningful and for what reasons? Is the quality of learning and teaching process satisfactory high? Under what conditions? The present research explores the previous questions. More specifically, it explores synchronous computer mediated
Une typologie des fonctions des modèles formels : l'exemple de la biologie
Une typologie des fonctions des modèles est construite à partir dun cadre théorique (Nifle) permettant de définir le rapport entre modèle et expérience. Il est admis quil existe un lien entre la manière dont on modélise en tant quexpert ou chercheur et la manière dont on apprend à modéliser en tant quétudiant, et que ce lien repose sur le rapport expérience/modèle. La typologie est construite pour le cas particulier des modèles formels (utilisant un formalisme mathématiqu
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,The segment provides examples of probing questions to find out if the student recogniz
College Lesson Study Project
The process of Lesson Study is a unique form of collaborative classroom inquiry, frequently practiced in Japanese elementary schools, in which a small team of instructors designs, teaches, studies and refines a single class lesson.
Faut-il vraiment laisser le déroulement d'une animation sous le contrôle de l'apprenant ?
Grâce aux possibilités technologiques accrues, l'utilisation d'animations dans les documents multimédia à visée technique ou didactique, est devenue un usage courant. Cependant, les études qui ont comparé « toute chose égales par ailleurs » animations et graphiques statiques montrent que le bénéfices des graphiques animés, loin d'être automatique, dépend des dispositifs d'interaction mis à la disposition des utilisateurs. Sur la base de la littérature, nous proposons que l'usage
Réduire l'écart entre formations théorique et pratique en chirurgie : conception d'un EIAH
L'objet de la recherche présentée est de concevoir un environnement informatique d'apprentissage qui permette de réduire l'écart entre la formation théorique des chirurgiens et leur formation pratique, qui se déroule principalement sur le mode du compagnonnage. L'article expose la méthodologie et quelques illustrations du travail didactique d'analyse des connaissances et du système d'enseignement / apprentissage en milieu hospitalier (chirurgie orthopédique).
