David Ewing Duncan - The Experimental Man
"The Experimental Man: Cutting-Edge Scientific Research and Implications for Personalized Medicine" David Ewing Duncan - chief correspondent for public radio's BioTech Nation, contributor to NPR's Morning Edition, author, and director of UC Berkeley's Center for Life Science Policy - gives a fascinating talk on his journey to "physical self-discovery" to see what effects medical technologies will have on individuals, families, and cultures.
The Holloway Series in Poetry - Honoring the Life and Work of Larry Eigner
When Larry Eigner arrived in this world "palsied from a hard birth" the accepted view was that the severity of his injury made him uneducable.

Games and learning - A handbook from Futurelab
'Games and learning' is a Furturelab handbook that is readily and freely available as a PDF file. It reports upon the recent and current use of game-based resources. The key findings, that have the most impact upon teacher training, are the recommendations for educators to look beyond the game play to the rationale in terms of learning outcomes, opportunities and motivations. The report acknowledges and celebrates the effective use of computer-based games in a wide range of contexts through case
Topics in Modern East Asian History
The overall purpose of this textbook is to survey the major events of modern Chinese and Japanese history. Sometimes this survey takes the form of an old-fashioned, straightforward narrative. Whenever possible, however, the author seeks to examine history through topics that rarely receive much attention in standard textbooks. Furthermore, many of the topics discussed in subsequent chapters shed light on matters of broad significance to the study of human affairs.
Fused deposition of ceramics: a comprehensive experimental, analytical and computational study of ma
Customer-driven product customization and continued demand for cost and time savings have generated a renewed interest in agile manufacturing based on improvements on Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies. The advantages of RP technologies are: 1. ability to shorten the product design and development time, 2.) suitability for automation and decrease in the level of human intervention, 3.) ability to build many geometrically complex shapes. A shift from â prototypingâ to â manufacturingâ
WWG: a Distributed Infrastructure for Learning in Groups
This paper describes the experiences of learning and working in groups on the Computer Science studies at Virtual Campus of the Open University of Catalunya. Two communities have used a web based shared workspace tool to a) coordinate the task of tutors of a computer architecture course, and b) a problem based collaborative learning project with software engineering students. These experiences have lead to the design of WWG: a distributed infrastructure for distance learning in groups at Interne
