To develop applications to run on the ez430 chip, we use the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE (integrated development environment). Not only does this application provide a powerful code editor, but it also allows a simple one-click deployment of the source code onto the MSP chip using USB as well as hardware debugging capabilities that allow you to trace through actual stack calls. This module is intended to give you an introduction to the IAR Workbench application so that you may create and develop your own ez430 applications. Less

This site describes how and when 100-year floods occur. It states that flood designations are based on statistical averages, not on the number of years between big floods. It also suggests that it would make more sense to refer to 100-year floods as 1-in-100 chance floods. This resource is a United States Geological Survey (USGS) Fact Sheet. It can be used in teaching quantitative skills. Less

Exploration tubs, or learning centers, promote content vocabulary as students engage in exploration, discussion and build connections to real life experiences. Students with low language skills tend to have greater difficulty interacting socially on the playground and applying information they have been taught (e.g., English Language Learners, Poverty, Learning, Disabilities, Slow Learners, Highly Mobile). This lesson will model strategies that develop essential content vocabulary. Less

The inadequate density and distribution of health care providers is having a profoundly negative effect on health outcomes around the globe. In Africa in particular, too few physicians and supporting health care professionals are being trained to meet local needs. A key barrier to educating more health care providers is the lack of instructors to teach both basic and clinical sciences. This is complicated by the duplication of faculty efforts at multiple sites for courses which can now be completed online.In this planning grant, we will:Develop a low-cost and scalable process (dScribe) for converting existing educational materials into Open Educational Resources.Convert a set of educational materials from the medical, dental, and public health schools at the University of Michigan as a proof of concept.Develop a website with an integrated learning management system to facilitate delivery of educational materials based on specific diseases, educational outcomes, or entire curricular paths.Establish the commitments of all University of Michigan health sciences schools to the vision of Open Educational Resources for all curricular materials.Convene meetings with colleagues in South Africa and Ghana to identify how they could add their own materials to the site, adapt existing materials, or jointly generate materials with Michigan-African collaboration.Track costs and resources needed for all activities in preparation for a full proposal to be submitted by November 15, 2008.We believe this model will succeed because it responds to an imperative need, it capitalizes on our existing information technology used to train physicians and other health care providers, and builds on our existing long-term partnerships in Africa.
