European Business Culture and Practice, Workbook 1: Describing and Analysing Culture for Business
These workbooks form a major part of the class programme in European Business Culture and Practice. They provide a framework within which we explore concepts of national (or regional) culture and the way it translates into organisational or business culture. They combine individual and group work, as understanding and working within cultural differences is necessarily a group activity. As your group progresses through the workbooks, you may evaluate the effectiveness of this framework for yourse

Introductory Physics II
Welcome to the NROC Introductory Physics course. This course is divided into two semesters and is designed to acquaint you with topics in classical and modern physics. The first semester discusses topics in Newtonian mechanics including: kinematics, laws of motion, work and energy, systems of particles, momentum, circular motion, oscillations, and gravitation. The first semester concludes with topics in fluid mechanics, thermal physics, and kinetic theory. The second semester discusses the topic
May the Force Be With You: Weight
The purpose of this lesson is to help students understand the relationship between the mass and the weight of an object. Students will study the properties of common materials and why airplanes use specific materials.
Can You Take the Pressure?
This lesson introduces students to the concept of air pressure. Students will explore how air pressure creates force on an object. They will study the relationship between air pressure and the velocity of moving air.
Object-Oriented Software Design - The OO Design Process - Case Study & Java Remedies
This lecture forms part of "The OO Design Process - Case Study & Java Remedies" topic in the Object-Oriented Software Design module.
Laboratory Investigation of Sewage Pollution
A laboratory investigation of sewage pollution based around a case study. Students analyse for various so-called biomarkers in soil samples and assess for likely sources of contamination.
Supporting Business Decisions: Multi-Criteria Decision Modelling
This PowerPoint shows a case study of The Macrosoft Conference and considers the business decision options. It also covers some FAQ's
Object-Oriented Software Design - Classes and objects in Java and Petrol Station Case Study
This practical forms part of "Classes and objects in Java and Petrol Station Case Study" topic in the Object-Oriented Software Design module.
Introduction to OO Programming in Java - Mobile Phone Case Study
This reading material forms part of the "Mobile Phone Case Study" topic in the Introduction to OO Programming in Java module.
Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Magnetic fields
In this session we’ll begin with Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. We’ll describe and use the analogy between a current loop and a magnetic dipole and study the magnetic energy in various situations, including the energy density of a magnetic field. Finally we’ll look at magnetic forces from the point of view of the interaction between moving electrical charges, the Lorentz force law, and describe the force between current carry wires, the Biot-Savart law.
Educational Change and Continuity
In this module you will be introduced to the study of education through the dimension of time. It is entitled ‘Educational Change and Continuity’ because it is concerned with processes of change within educational theory and practice and with theory and practice which has stayed the same for long periods of time. The latter include those perennial problems and enduring issues which all educationists have to face. During the course of the module, you will develop an understanding of change an
Overseas aid in the Dragon's Den: student briefings
Student handouts from a role-playing exercise in which groups take the roles of countries or transnational organisations promoting development. Each page of the document has the instructions for a different group. Tutor instructions and the goals of the seminar activity are included in the "Overseas aid in the Dragon's Den" case study published by the Economics Network. Created for a Development Economics module at the University of Southampton, 2008/09
Jesus, Paul and the Early Church
‘Jesus, Paul and the Early Church’ is the third of three term-length online Modules on an ‘Introduction to the Bible’. Module 1 is an introduction to the content, original contexts, and theology of the main books of the Hebrew Bible together with related texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Module 2 comprises an introduction to the authorship, contexts and distinctive theology of each of the four New Testament Gospels, together with what can be known from these and other sources about the
There is now a greater interest in the environment than ever before and we face concerns about the environmental impacts of almost every aspect of our daily lives. Water, soil, air and the biological environment can all be changed dramatically by the activities of industrial societies like our own, not least through mechanisms which are controlled by essentially geological processes. Waste disposal, contamination of land by industry, the impacts of mining, water pollution and even air quality (t
A case study in efficiency wages: Economics of the New Lanark establishment Under Robert Owen’s ma
The purpose of these notes is to show how labour economics can be used to analyse and understand real economic episodes and events. The case study in question is Robert Owen’s management of the New Lanark Cotton Mills in the 19th century. 30-page Word document including graphs and tables, created to support Labour economics teaching at the University of Dundee.
TALAT Lecture 3210: Continuous Casting
This lecture gives an overview about the possibilities to produce aluminium foilstock and wire-bar in a continuous way. Continuous casting is the preferred casting method in modern plants because it offers higher productivity. But there are limitations in the use of this technology because not all alloys can be cast. The product shows properties that can differ from conventional material. This lecture demonstrates the principal of operation; technologies for continuous casting; types of casters;
TALAT Lecture 2405: Fatigue an Fracture in Aluminium Structures
This lecture outlines modern fatigue design procedures and standards, the respective background information; it introduces fatigue design by testing; it presents fatigue data analysis and evaluation; it covers safety and reliability issues in aluminium design. This material has been utilized together with further definitions for classification of structural details to provide a proposal supported by the European Aluminium Association as a National Application Document, which may also be consider
