Creating Stellar Lessons with Digital Tools From Integration to Innovation in Technology-Enhanced Teaching
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9781003172284 | 277 pages | True PDF | 7.3 MB

Creating Stellar Lessons with Digital Tools prepares teachers in training and in-service teachers to use technologies for design and development activities with middle and high school students. While software, open resources, handheld devices, and other tools hold great potential to enhance learning experiences, teachers themselves must model technology use in ways that inspire students to become producers and leaders rather than consumers and followers. Featuring concrete applications in social studies, English, mathematics, and science scenarios, this book provides pre-service teachers with seven paths to creatively integrate and innovate with computational thinking, datasets, maker spaces, visual design, media editing, and other approaches.

Competitive gaming, or esports – referring to competitive tournaments of video games among both casual gamers and professional players – began in the early 1970s with small competitions like the one held at Stanford University in October 1972, where some 20 researchers and students attended. By 2022, the estimated revenue of the global esports industry is in excess of $947 million, with over 200 million viewers worldwide. Regardless of views held about competitive gaming, esports have become a modern economic and cultural phenomenon.

Wave Energy Devices Design, Development, and Experimental Studies
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9781003281429 | 271 pages | True PDF | 63.84 MB

Designing offshore wave energy converter (WEC) devices requires a thorough understanding of many aspects of science and engineering, namely, wave hydrodynamics, wave-WEC interactions, mechanical design, analysis tools, and conducting experiments. This book provides the tools for understanding these complex systems and addresses the basic concepts of WECs through detailed analysis and design. A few devices developed and experimentally investigated are discussed in detail, some of which are considered highly novel and still in the preliminary stages of study in the existing literature.

Visualising Health Care Practice Improvement
English | 2013 | ISBN: 9781846198441 | 232 pages | True PDF | 19.08 MB

Why is it that in spite of all the health policy reforms, clinical practice innovations, increasing intersectoral interdependencies and new medical and information technologies, so little has changed in the way we research and evaluate health care? Don't these changes cry out for new ways of being studied and appraised? And don't our approaches to clinical practice innovation cry out for being reinvented too?

Ultrasound of the Diaphragm and the Respiratory Muscles
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9781003128694 | 168 pages | True PDF | 72.55 MB

Ultrasound is the most reliable, easily available, fast, non-invasive technique to study diaphragm function, and is an irreplaceable tool to diagnose, monitor, and follow -up critical respiratory patients. This essential guide analyses every aspect of ultrasound of the diaphragm and respiratory muscles, a reliable assessment whose function is vital to delivering the most suitable treatment. Ultrasound of the Diaphragm and the Respiratory Muscles also provides insight to diagnosing diaphragmatic dysfunction or paralysis following surgery or neuromuscular diseases, to follow the muscular activity and the time-course of atrophy during mechanical ventilation, and to monitor the weaning phase. It is ideal for professionals and trainees practicing ultrasound in a clinical setting.

Transgenic Animals Generation and Use
English | 1997 | ISBN: 9781003211099 | 592 pages | True PDF | 155.13 MB

During the past 20 years, transgenesis has become a popular technique and a crucial tool for molecular geneticists and biologists. Transgene expression is now better-controlled and even specifically inducible by exogenous factors. While these techniques have quite significantly transformed the experimental approaches taken by biologists, the applications are more limited than expected and concerns have arisen regarding biosafety as well as physiological, social, and philosophical issues.

Everything that exists, exists against a background. All of our experiences, beliefs and understandings of health practice derive from a living, organic and constantly moving context: whether scientific, philosophical, cultural, aesthetic, biological or spiritual. It is useful therefore to spend a little time understanding and reflecting on these building blocks of who we are. As practitioners, we don't always have time to do this…A little luxury…not essential, but hopefully a bit nourishing. Like a fireside cup of cocoa.

General Practice has never been an easy occupation. In the past there were some clear structures and routes for new GPs to take. You could expect to join a practice and progress through the ranks, growing in seniority and confidence. You might have been informally mentored by one of the older colleagues; learning management and business skills gradually. It is no longer like this.
