Becoming a research engaged school
This 2006 PRE-Online article, written by Caroline Sharp from NFER, is an account concerning the ways in which schools can become research-engaged. It emerges from a study based in 15 schools which had begun research projects in 2003. The article outlines insights gained, as well as some of the research findings from three of the schools. All the research projects reported in this article are concerned with the use of whiteboards and ICT.
What Makes a Successful Transition from Primary to Secondary School?
This report forms part of the Effective Pre-school, Primary and Secondary Education (EPPSE) 3-14 project, a major longitudinal study funded by the DCSF. It presents the findings of a sub-study on transitions, taken from questionnaire responses of over 500 children in their first term at secondary school, as well as their parents. Case studies of 12 of the pupils who had enjoyed a successful transition were subsequently undertaken, involving interviews with them and their primary and secondary te
Change Engagement Comparative Study: Final Report
This resource is a research study into how schools engage with change. The study explores the nature of change management and factors which promote or hinder effective change management within the school sector from the perspective of teachers, teaching assistants and school leadership teams. It also compares the school sector with the health, local government and police sector with regards to how they deal with change and examine lessons that can be learned from these sectors. The resource is t
A Developmental Study of the Japanese Medaka Oryzias latipes and the Water Fern Marsilea
This exercise is a demonstration and is observation based. It requires students to carefully study the materials provided.
Chick Embryos in Shell-less Culture
Continuous observation of developing embryos from day 3 up to day 18 of incubation allows students to see differentiation of extra embryonic membranes and circulation, limb bud, heart, and feathers as well as pre-hatching behavior. For advanced classes, this method is useful to study teratology, organogenesis, and quantitative growth changes.
This unit will help you to identify and use information in business and management, whether for your work, study or personal purposes. Experiment with some of the key resources in this subject area, and learn about the skills which will enable you to plan searches for information, so you can find what you are looking for more easily. Discover the meaning of information quality, and learn how to evaluate the information you come across. You will also be introduced to the many different ways of or

MIT’s Entrepreneurial Development and Impact Over the Past 50 Years
Ed Roberts reviews the effects of entrepreneurship within MIT and the relation of MIT entrepreneurship to larger communities.
Much of the research under discussion comes from a 2006 study of MIT alumni conducted by Roberts and Charles Eesley of the Sloan School. The study polled MIT alumni about companies they had
A legal and historical study of post-WWII Singapore Trials: Death and suffering on the "hell-ships"
Dr Cheah Wui Ling gives her talk entitled 'A legal and historical study of post-WWII Singapore trials: Death and Suffering on the Hell Ships' as part of the 2009 Taking Stock of Transitional Justice conference
1 Unit introduction
This Unit looks at how units if inheritance are transmitted from one generation to the next. First you will look at what happens to the chromosones of animals and plants during the process of sexual reproduciton. Then you will examine how genes are transmitted in particular patterns from generation to generation. These two approaches combine to illustrate how the patterns of inheritance can be explained by the behaviour of chromosomes during sexual reproduction.
Seasonal Migrations: Monarch Butterflies
Help track the monarch butterfly migration each fall and spring as the butterflies travel to and from Mexico. Report your own observations of migrating butterflies to this migration map. Through these interrelated investigations, students discover that sunlight drives all living systems and they learn about the dynamic ecosystem that surrounds and connects them. Guidelines, lessons, activities, reading connections, and interactive maps are included for each study.
Studying to Succeed: Planning your career
Students progress through a program which requires them to manage their own learning and establish their own future goals through a process of self development. Career planning is a key component of the program. Effective study skills and attitudes will be developed and applied to areas of communication studies to prepare the student for entry into a tertiary undergraduate course. The language content is provided in a broad context to best enable students to continue in the career of their choic
5 Summary of Section 4
This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field. Study Goals: Reach understanding of electronic properties of meso-size conductors, appreciate/recognize the role of classical and quantum processes, being able to explain electronic transport phenomena using simple physical concepts.Author(s):
