A short six question quiz to see how much you know about 18th Century Ireland
The University of Michigan, OER Africa, and four African university partners will develop a long term logic model and scalable, sustainable, collaborative content development programs for comprehensive, open, health professions curriculaIn 2008, Michigan used a Hewlett Foundation planning grant to hold a successful workshop and follow-up campus meetings. We now propose a one year effort to develop a sustainable and scalable OER program to support health education, particularly in developing countries. This effort will be a collaboration among the University of Michigan, OER Africa, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, the University of Ghana, the University of Cape Town, and the University of the Western Cape.In this design phase we will:Engage university leadership in implementing institutional policy frameworks that facilitate the success of OER.Hold faculty development workshops to build institutional capacity in OER.Enhance an innovative, low-cost, and scalable process (dScribe) for converting educational materials into OER.Collaboratively develop educational materials as OER and deploy them in our respective curricula.Promote the collaboration and its outputs through a community of practice web site.Establish a framework for a longitudinal study of faculty productivity and the effect of OER on learning outcomes and provide feedback on socio-technical aspects of collaborative OER practices.Produce an evidence-based long-term logic model for Health OER based on a vision that multiple stakeholders will own, in which funders will invest, and which institutions are committed to sustaining. This consensus-driven model will be the basis of a Global Health OER follow-on proposal.
In 2009, the University of Michigan, OER Africa, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, the University of Ghana, the University of Cape Town, and the University of the Western Cape used a Hewlett Foundation grant to develop a scalable OER program to support health education. We now propose a two-year program to deepen our African Health OER initiative while eventually moving from Hewlett Foundation support to a resource model built ona community of donors committed to addressing health challenges in the Millennium Development Goals, and institutional investment that makes OER production and use an integral part of the teaching and learning process in health schools. The proposed African Health OER Network is designed to strengthen the intellectual and policy infrastructure within and between African institutions. Our objective is to systematically draw in more African and, eventually, global participants to create, adapt, share, and use OER to the benefit of health education in Africa, while developing models of collaboration and sustainability that can be replicated in other regions of the world.The proposed African Health OER Network is structured to build on the OERs created and deployed during the 2009 Design Phase. These materials were selected due to pedagogical needs within health education in Africa, such as limited training materials available for certain conditions and diseases and materials that can augment the crowded lecture and ward-based training contexts. More information on those efforts can be found in the inputs and activities sections, below.In this phase we will:Ensure that the OER infrastructure model, successfully deployed during the design phase, maintains momentum with current participants and begins growing the Network while simultaneously seeking to expand the community of support.Aggregate a critical mass of African-produced health open educational resources published through both institutional and regional (oerafrica.org) repositories.Continue to enhance (e.g., through functionality and localization) an innovative, low-cost, and scalable process (dScribe) for converting educational materials into OER.Build on pilot and formative analyses undertaken in 2009 to establish the basis for an evidence chain that connects from faculty productivity and career satisfaction measures though efficacy in learning contexts to application of acquired knowledge in health care settings.

Tradition and innovation in representative fiction of the early modern period. Recurring themes: the role of the artist in the modern period, the representation of psychological and sexual experience, the virtues (and defects) of the aggressively experimental character of so many modern books. Works by such writers as Conrad, Kipling, Isaac Babel, Kafka, James, Lawrence, Mann, Ford Madox Ford, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, and Nabokov.
This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to visualize two-dimensional cross-sections of representations of three-dimensional objects. In particular, the lesson will help you identify and help students who have difficulties recognizing and drawing two-dimensional cross-sections at different points along a plane of a representation of a three-dimensional object.

AP Calculus AB is organized into 6 units (4 units in the first semester and 2 units in the second semester). The lessons in each unit include: Readings, Multimedia (lessons), Assignments, and Assessments. The course covers the principles of functions, derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, and applications and modeling. Students will be able to: work with functions represented in a variety of ways; understand the connections among graphical, numerical, analytical, or verbal representations; understand the meaning of the derivative in terms of a rate of change and local linear approximation, and be able to use derivatives to solve a variety of problems; understand the meaning of the definite integral both as a limit of Riemann sums and as the net accumulation of change, and use integrals to solve a variety of problems; understand the relationship between the derivative and the definite integral as expressed in both parts of the fundamental theorem of calculus.
This University of California College Prep (UCCP) Advanced Placement (AP) Environmental Science online course has five objectives: Describe the six different forms of energy and the type of work done by each form. Discuss the roles of sources and sinks in an energy budget. Define the Law of Conservation of Energy, and explain how the operation of fuel cell vehicles illustrates this principal. Name the units with which energy, power, and force are measured and described. Use energy flow within a house to explain both theoretical and practical aspects of energy use and conservation.
This course is assembled from UC-approved college preparatory courses and is designed to acquaint students with the physical, ecological, social, and political principles of environmental science. The scientific method is used to analyze and understand the inter-relationships between humans and the natural environment. The course shows how ecological realities and the material desires of humans often clash, leading to environmental degradation and pollution. The course covers: Earth's Systems, Human Population Dynamics, Natural Resources, Environmental Quality, Global Changes, and Environment and Society.
