3 Identity

The activities in this section focus specifically on issues of wellbeing, such as self-esteem, resilience and sense of belonging. They consider how practitioners can support children as they understand and negotiate their identities, and those of other people, in the light of other people's perceptions and beliefs.

There are two activities to help you highlight some of these issues.

#270: Useful imperfections: Nanodiamonds for quantum sensors in living cells

Physicist Prof Lloyd Hollenberg explains how quantum technologies are leading to the development of sensors of only a few atoms’ size -- small enough to be placed inside living cells to enable monitoring of biological processes. Presented by Dr Shane Huntington.

Understanding global politics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009. This module introduces global politics through the major theoretical, historical and empirical ways of seeing international relations. Different claims, about, for example, human nature, power, war, peace, the state, society, law and politics are offered by thinkers who exercise a major influence on our contemporary understanding.

1.3 Most receptors are on the cell surface

Water-soluble signalling molecules cannot cross the membrane lipid bilayer, but bind to specific receptors embedded in the plasma membrane. The receptors have an extracellular domain that binds the signalling molecule, a hydrophobic transmembrane domain and an intracellular domain.

Binding of a ligand induces a conformational change in the receptor, in particular that of its intracellular region. It is this conformational change that activates a relay of intracellular signalling molecul

4.2.2 Read the whole exam paper through carefully

Students often describe feeling that everyone else starts writing confidently, straight away. Make sure you allow yourself at least 5 minutes to read calmly through the paper. It is tempting to grab at familiar questions, possibly even misreading them and turning them into the questions you want to answer. If you carefully and steadily unpack the questions, you will inevitably make a better selection.

8.3 Worship in temples and street shrines

Apart from being intensely visible, participation in devotional practice at temples and festivals is extremely widespread within popular Hinduism. If we make allowance for regional and sectarian variations, we can gain some truly representative insights into a central preoccupation of living Hinduism. As in Section 6, I would like you to look

Workshop 1: Behind the Design
With Philip Sadler, Ed.D. Young children are natural designers and builders, but if their interest is not fostered, it may wane as they move through the grades. This workshop focuses on the use of simple design prototypes that children are asked to improve upon in order to meet a particular challenge. You will see these design challenges in action in middle sch

Modernism in China: Architectural Visions and Revolutions
China’s development and speculation about its future impact on the world are stimulating considerable attention in design-related disciplines internationally. This process has already encouraged various forms of cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue that will inevitably enrich our understanding of design and improve our responses to future design-related problems. However, much of this discourse tends to focus on either pre-twentieth century themes (e.g. China’s ancient sites and cu

21H.931 Seminar in Historical Methods (MIT)
This subject is designed to give 21H majors and minors an introduction to the methods that historians use to interpret the past. We will focus on two areas: archives and interpretation. In our work on archives, we will ask what constitutes an archive. We will visit one or two local archives, speak with archivists, and assemble our own archive related to life at MIT in 2003. Once we have a better understanding of the possibilities and limitations of historical archives, we will turn to the task o
