Composing Ourselves and Our World: A Guide to First Year Writing
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This textbook is meant for first year English Composition Courses. The text covers the essentials of composition and rhetoric in a recursive manner and introduces research skills.

When you are eager to get started on the coursework in your major that will prepare you for your career, getting excited about an introductory college writing course can be difficult. However, regardless of your field of study, honing your writing skills—and your reading and critical-thinking skills—gives you a more solid academic foundation.

In college, academic expectations change from what you may have experienced in high school. The quantity of work you are expected to do is increased. When instructors expect you to read pages upon pages or study hours and hours for one particular course, managing your work load can be challenging.

The quality of the work you do also changes. It is not enough to understand course material and summarize it on an exam. You will also be expected to seriously engage with new ideas by reflecting on them, analyzing them, critiquing them, making connections, drawing conclusions, or finding new ways of thinking about a given subject. Educationally, you are moving into deeper waters. A good introductory writing course will help you swim.

This resource aims to provide a space for you to consider the potential impact of the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement on your approaches to teaching and learning. Its eleven different sections can accumulate into a 33 hour 'course'.

Each section will suggest a number of possible sources and we hope that you will take advantage of the comments feature at the bottom of each section's page. We believe that the sharing of thoughts, reactions and perspectives can lead to a rich and recursive experience that can benefit each user of the resource.

The eleven (approximately 3-hour long) activity-based sessions cover issues related to identifying, locating, releasing and putting OERs into your curricula; understanding the concept of “openness”; as well as pedagogical (or, within the remit of this course, "anarchogogical") issues around student engagement and in particular innovative assessment. In their broadest sense, the resources (and their resultant skills, ideas and activities) should also encourage 'reflection' on the research and practice of the working lives of teaching professionals. The course will pursue a reflexive approach to each of its sections and the subsequent feedback - via the comments feature on each page of the wiki - will provide powerful and dynamic interaction for the development of our 'teaching and learning' knowledge.

Com as mudanças de paradigmas na Educação, é importante que os professores conheçam as transformações a que se têm assistido, nomeadamente no que concerne à Educação a Distância, cada vez mais propagada no mundo académico.

Ensino a Distância – contextualização do seu papel no século XXI2. Autonomia na Aprendizagem3. Perfil do Professor e a importância da comunicação4. Concepção e desenho5. Selecção de Plataformas6.

Frog Heart Preparation
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

An isolated frog heart preparation is useful in the study of cardiac cell excitation. The small size of the frog's heart means that drugs applied to the outside of the heart will peneterate the myocardium and modify the functions of the heart's cardiac chambers. Thus, the effect of the autonomic neurotransmitter substance together with their modification by other drugs can be studied by addition of these agents to the heart.This module has been internally reviewed by a cross-disciplinary committee within KNUST prior to releasing as an Open Educational Resource.

This is a very well-produced website with material on a wide range of art-related topics. There are essays on specific artists and on more quirky topics like pop star clothing. The images on individual art historical movements are interactive, click and more information appears. There are embedded videos on certain topics. It is a relatively comprehensive and entertaining website, although the topics have to be searched for - it is not chronologically laid out as a text.

Health Management I Module Guide
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This module was developed at the School of Public Health, University for the Western Cape for the Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health which was offered as a distance learning module between 2001 and 2008. Health management is considered an important skill area for Public Health professionals. The module covers three key management areas: people management, planning and resource management. Through exploring these areas, the module aims to provide information and assistance at a practical level, continually referring the student to management issues within their own context.Ę As management is cross-cutting in relation to other Public Health fields, the student is also expected to relate much of the management study material to the contexts of the other Certificate modules.
