An information-based society necessitates good writing in all careers: Many scientists and technical professionals must write progress reports, analyses, literature reviews, or other documents to communicate within their workplaces, and many must also address more general audiences in grant proposals, conference papers, articles, and so on. This course is designed to serve as a basic introduction to the practice of technical writing for those who work as scientists and technical researchers. Because scientific and technical fields are becoming more interdisciplinary and more globally connected everyday, we will also consider intercultural communication issues at some length. Less

The course will discuss the objectives and functions of water management systems for irrigation and drainage purposes. Analysing system requirements in terms of technical engineering constraints, management possibilities and water users (wishes and options) is central. This includes the design and operation of regulation structures, dams, reservoirs, weirs and conveyance systems; balancing water supply and water requirements in time and space is a main focus of analysis too.

Explores the theory and practice of scientific modeling in the context of auditory and speech biophysics. Based principally on seminar-style discussions of the research literature, subject draws on examples from hearing and speech (e.g., cochlear and vocal-fold mechanics) to explore general, meta-theoretical issues that transcend the particular subject matter. Examples include: What is a model? What is the process of model building? What are the different approaches to modeling? What is the relationship between theory and experiment? How are models tested? What constitutes a good model? Less

Itinera Nova. Nieuwe wegen naar de digitale ontsluiting van archiefbronnen is een project van het Stadsarchief Leuven. De bedoeling is een zo goed mogelijke digitale toegang te ontwikkelen tot de meer dan duizend registers van de Leuvense schepenbank (1362-1795). De digitale beelden worden ter beschikking gesteld op de projectwebsite. De akten, van verkoop tot erfenis, van burenruzie tot schuldbekentenis, worden voorzien van een index en een volledige transcriptie. Een vrijwilligersnetwerk helpt bij de ontsluiting van deze rijke bron door mee te transcriberen. Op deze leeromgeving leer je op een interactieve manier hoe je transcripties kunt maken. Less
