The Convention itself
This unit will give you a basic understanding of EU law and the interaction between EU and domestic law. It will provide a brief explanation of the European Convention on Human Rights and other European legislation, as well as the background to such institutions as the European Council, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Court of Justice.

Problem-solving in school chemistry: an exploratory study
This NFER PRE article presents the background, the findings and the classroom implications of a study on how small groups of secondary pupils solve open chemistry problems. The authors show the importance of understanding concepts in order to be able to solve open problems. They also suggest that pupil working memory capacity is significant and that teachers need to make links between key concepts for pupils. Solving open problems in groups is welcomed by pupils and increases pupil confidence. L

Modelling with first order differential equations
This unit lays the foundation of Newtonian mechanics and in particular the procedure for solving dynamics problems. The preresquisite skills needed for this unit are the ability to solve first and second-order differential equations, a knowledge of vectors, and an understanding of the concept of a force

Systems of differential equations
This unit shows how various situations can be modelled by a system of linear differential equations. The prerequisite requirements to gain full advantage from this unit are a basic understanding of differential equations, a familiarity with the properties of matrices and determinants and some understanding of eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Modelling with differential equations: oscillations
This unit is intended to develop your understanding of Newtonian mechanics in relation to oscillating systems. In addition to a basic grounding in calculus, this unit assumes that you have some understanding of how to solve second-order linear constant-coefficient differential equations; how to take the dot product of two vectors; of solving statics problems; and of applying Newton's second law to mechanical problems.

The EPPI review ‘What characterises effective teacher initiated teacher-pupil dialogue to promote
March 2008 has seen the publication of two important reports concerning mathematics education. ‘What characterises effective teacher initiated teacher-pupil dialogue to promote conceptual understanding in mathematics lessons in England in Key Stages 2 and 3', is an EPPI systematic review commissioned by the DCSF. ‘Foundations for Success' the Final Report of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel for the U.S. Department of Education is a report that was complied over approximately two yea

Getting Out of the Classroom - Outdoor Learning with Forest School
In a short 15 minute film, this Teachers TV programme demonstrates the impact of Forest School on a group of Reception and Year 1 children from Charlbury School Oxfordshire. We see children experiencing outdoor learning in wet and dry weather and hear their views of the activities. We also gain an understanding of how the activities have changed children, from the perspectives of both teachers and parents. Of the greatest benefit to trainee teachers and teachers, we hear how the featured teacher

Sci-tutors: Physical Processes: The Earth and Beyond
This article from the Sci-tutors site explores some of the barriers to understanding the scientific explanations of the relationship between the relative motions of the Earth and Sun in space and everyday experiences of day and night, the seasons, eclipses, etc., - and extends the range by considering the possible evolution of matter and the universe from the 'big bang'.

The Open Movement and Libraries
"Openness" which has become a hallmark of the new Web has long been a mission in libraries. The philosophy of free and open access to information and technology has become a critical subject for information and technology leaders and practitioners. This course will explore the role and participation of library science and librarians in this movement. This course will give an overview of open-source technologies (such as content management systems and ILS programs) which are being used by librari

Music-ITE: Using a composing workshop as an opportunity to explore pedagogy
'Understanding music through composing' was a workshop run for trainee music teachers and music subject mentors at Birmingham City University on 29th January 2009. As shown on the Music-ITE website, the aim of this workshop was: To identify pedagogy that will help young people to think creatively through music and to understand how composers think. The workshop was based on the findings from a school based composing project with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG).
