Codex Conquest teaches students to recognize the most important printed books of Western civilization by their nation, century, genre, and current monetary value. Along the way, students learn world history and the scenarios that influence the shape of collections at institutions. Suiting a variety of curricular objectives and student levels, the game can be tailored to fit subject and time specifications and is accessible to students from high school through graduate school. How deeply students engage with the content of Codex Conquest depends on your pedagogy.
The KPU Open Publishing Suite team has established an Open Textbook Publishing Workflow v 4.0 that is used to ensure the project moves from beginning to end smoothly. It will show you the different stages that a project moves through, and which questions and items to consider at each stage.
Ever need to help a researcher share and archive their research data? Would you know how to advise them on managing their data so it can be easily shared and re-used? This workshop will cover best practices for collecting and organizing research data related to the goal of data preservation and sharing. We will focus on best practices and tips for collecting data, including file naming, documentation/metadata, quality control, and versioning, as well as access and control/security, backup and storage, and licensing. We will discuss the library’s role in data management, and the opportunities and challenges around supporting data sharing efforts. Through case studies we will explore a typical research data scenario and propose solutions and services by the library and institutional partners. Finally, we discuss methods to stay up to date with data management related topics.

Data Tree is a free online course with all you need to know for research data management, along with ways to engage and share data with business, policymakers, media and the wider public. The self-paced training course will take 15 to 20 hours to complete in eight structured modules. The course is packed with video, quizzes and real-life examples of data management, along with valuable tips from experts in data management, data sharing and science communication. The training course materials will be available for structured learning, but also to dip into for immediate problem solving.
Data Tree is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) through the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF), delivered by the Institute for Environmental Analytics and Stats4SD and supported by the Institute of Physics.
The soup-to-nuts exercises take students through the entire process of research with statistical data, from the very beginning when they first access the original data, through cleaning and processing the data to prepare them for analysis, to the very end when they generate the results that they present in a written report. Throughout each exercise, there will be an emphasis on adopting a transparent workflow and constructing replication documentation that ensures all the work done for the exercise can be independently reproduced.
The Research Data Curation Bibliography includes over 750 selected English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding the curation of digital research data in academic and other research institutions.
Advanced topics in general chemistry including chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base, and electrochemistry. Chemical principles are presented at a level appropriate for science majors and pre-professional students.
Nowadays, the use of technologies is deeply embedded in the teaching and learning of foreign languages. Therefore, students and teachers are compelled to continuously update their digital skills. Moreover, the need for online teaching has been spurred by the COVID pandemics, which has posed new challenges in this regard. When searching for online tools, one of the main difficulties is the vast amount and disparity of resources available to both teachers and students, who often feel overwhelmed due to the lack of time or assessment criteria. In such cases, the potential of existing resources remains largely unexplored. In this context, we developed an online open access database of digital resources for Teaching and Learning Chinese as a Foreign Language. It includes a collection of metadata to satisfy users with different profiles and needs. In sum, we set up a multilingual (Catalan, Spanish, English and Chinese) and dynamic website, which can be useful for both teachers and learners who, in turn, will be able to enrich it through different types of feedback. Check our website and subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of the latest resources added to the database.
This webliography is intended for librarians seeking to enhance their own knowledge and assist peers in improving their data management awareness. The webliography is organized by content type, first with more foundational materials such as established data management curricula and then with current awareness and community materials such as social media.
Die Postergalerie im "Global Change Poster Explorer" entstand im Rahmen des Master Moduls "Schauplätze des Globalen Wandels" der Physischen Geographie im Wintersemester 2019/2020. Von Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Glaser wurden die Poster konzeptionell und inhaltlich betreut, von Michael Kahle wurde die Programmierung und die Veröffentlichung auf FreiDok übernommen. Dieses Format wurde mittlerweile für die Ringvorlesung Globaler Wandel übernommen. An dieser Ringvorlesung sind mehrere Dozierende der Geographie in Freiburg beteiligt. Entsprechend vielfältig sind die Themen, Ansätze und Orte. Die Poster können nach Themen, Orten, Konzepten und verschiedenen Landschaftstypen gefiltert oder auf der Übersichtskarte lokalisiert werden.
The poster gallery "Global Change Poster Explorer" was initiated as part of the Master module "Hot Spots of Global Change" in Physical Geography in the winter term in 2019/2020. Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Glaser developed the concept and supervised the content of the posters, and Michael Kahle was responsible for programming and publication on FreiDok. This format has since been adopted for the Global Change Lecture Series. Several lecturers of geography in Freiburg are involved in this lecture series. The topics, approaches and locations are correspondingly diverse. Posters can be filtered by theme, location, concept, and various landscape types or located on the overview map.
Das Jordanbecken ist seit fast einem Jahrhundert Schauplatz diverser Konflikte, bei dem die Ressource Wasser im Mittelpunkt steht. Der Jordan stellt in dieser trockenen Region eine wichtige Wasserversorgung dar, doch der Zugang und die Aufteilung sind ungleich aufgeteilt. Durch die zahlreichen, blutigen Auseinandersetzungen erlangte Israel die größte hydrostrategische Macht, was sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Vor allem Jordanien und die palästinensische Bevölkerung leiden darunter, da diese beiden Länder wenig weitere Wasserquellen nutzen können. Eine allumfassende diplomatische Konfliktlösung der Wassermangelproblematik ist bis heute nicht gefunden worden.
