COM 351: Documentary Studies
This course will allow students to study the methods by which documentary work is conducted and to complete a documentary project of their own. The course will connect the qualitative methods of the social sciences and the humanistic concerns of the arts by allowing students to study documentary subjects as captured by non-fiction, photography, film, tape recorder, and the world wide web. Special emphasis will be placed on narrative and metaphor.
PTC 620: Proposal Writing
In any organization, your success depends on your ability to write persuasively. Today, proposal writing is an industry: divisions of organizations are devoted to a single aim: to win competitive awards through compelling documents. This course will prepare you for your role in that challenging world. We will begin by exploring theories of persuasion from ancient to contemporary times, and we will continue our study through modern theories of stakeholder analysis. With this overview in mind, we
Antiretroviral treatment programmes in Nepal: Problems and barriers.
The main aim of this study is to identify barriers and obstacles to providing and expanding ARV programmes in Nepal. Materials and methods: A qualitative approach consisting of in-depth interviews with three groups of stakeholders: policy makers, ARV service providers and ARV recipients were carried out. The transcripts were analysed using a thematic approach. Results: The estimated number of people in need was high compared with people currently receiving ARV in Nepal. With regards to the prope

Internationalising the Curriculum: an annotated bibliography
This annotated bibliography comprises a selection of books, journal articles, conference papers and other resources on the subject of the internationalised curriculum. It has been compiled initially from a library of global sources originally brought together as part of the review of literature in the field, commissioned by the Higher Education Academy in 2006 (Caruana, V. and Spurling, N., 2007). This has been up-dated to include more recent work. The central criterion for selection of material
Understanding contemporary society
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. This module introduces students to a range of approaches in social analysis.

1.322 Soil Behavior (MIT)
This class presents a detailed study of soil properties with emphasis on interpretation of field and laboratory test data and their use in soft-ground construction engineering. Topics to be covered include: consolidation and secondary compression; basic strength principles; stress-strain strength behavior of clays, emphasizing effects of sample disturbance, anisotropy, and strain rate; strength and compression of granular soils; and engineering properties of compacted soils. Some knowledge of fi
7.341 Brightening up Life: Harnessing the Power of Fluorescence Imaging to Observe Biology in Action
One summer in the 1960s a young Japanese researcher, with the help of a few high school students, chopped up ten thousand jellyfish. As a by-product of this harvest, they isolated a green fluorescent protein (GFP). Since then, GFP has triggered a revolution in our understanding of gene expression and signaling in live cells. In this seminar, we will examine how this small protein generates fluorescence, i.e. absorbs light of one wavelength and emits light of a longer wavelength. We will discuss
8.022 Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism (MIT)
This course runs parallel to 8.02, but assumes that students have some knowledge of vector calculus. The class introduces Maxwell's equations, in both differential and integral form, along with electrostatic and magnetic vector potential, and the properties of dielectrics and magnetic materials. This class was taught by an undergraduate in the Experimental Study Group (ESG). Student instructors are paired with ESG faculty members, who advise and oversee the students' teaching efforts.
