Designing climate change curricular materials suitable for wide adoption across institutions and academic disciplines including those outside of the geosciences requires collaboration among faculty at different types of institutions and consideration of a variety of student populations, learning styles, and course formats.

The Interdisciplinary Teaching of Geoscience for a Sustainable Future InTeGrate project, an NSF STEP Center program, provides opportunities for faculty to develop week teaching modules to engage students in understanding the intersections between geoscience topics and societal issues.

From , a team of 3 faculty from a liberal arts college, comprehensive university, and community college developed, implemented, assessed, and revised a week module for introductory undergraduates entitled "Climate of change: interactions and feedbacks between water, air, and ice". The module uses authentic atmosphere, ocean, and cryosphere data from several regions to illustrate how climate impacts human societies and that the climate system has interacting components complicated by feedbacks, uncertainties, and human behavioral decisions.

Students also consider past and present human adaptations to climate fluctuations. The module was piloted in introductory geology, meteorology, and oceanography courses during the academic year, during which time formative and summative assessments were administered and used to modify the curricular materials.

We will provide an overview of the module 's content, instructional strategies involved in implementing the module , and methods of formative and summative assessment. We will also report on lessons learned during the development, piloting, revision, and publishing process, the importance of fostering partnerships between faculty from different institution types, and design approaches that promote widespread adoption of climate curricular materials.

Full Text Available The 21st century sets out new challenges to universities and university professors,who have to debate on the quality of education, the requirements on the teaching and learning, and the proposed curricula for the professional and disciplinary training in the university.

In this context, research groups from four Colombian universities have developed a project in order to articulate therelationshipswithin the training of university professors, through the research of their practices and processes of curricular innovation. Action research as a methodology and strategy of professional evelopment is proposed McKernan, , observation-reflection, planning-action, and then back to observation-reflection.

Video recordings of classes, individual and group observation of the recordings, and individual and group interviews that favor reflection processes about the dimensions of the pedagogical style are performed. The analysis of the practice is guided by a complex, investigative and comprehensive vision of the curriculum that articulates theory and practice. The critical recognition that teachers do about their own pedagogical style favors the evolution of their ideas and guides them to start a process of curricular innovation.

Living in an unpredictable and ever changing society demands from its' citizens the development of complex competencies that challenges school, education and curriculum.

Curricular improvements for entrepreneurial education. Full Text Available Our paper aims at investigating the most adequate methods for developing effective educational tools in entrepreneurial education.

Entrepreneurship education should take place during the entire life of an entrepreneur, but the basic knowledge and skills related to this field are acquired starting from the elementary school, and improved during all the educational levels.

Through entrepreneurship education, policymakers aim to prepare young people for succeeding on the entrepreneurial path. However, there are few scientific papers that aimed at discussing the available educational tools in Romania which play a role in forming entrepreneurs. Starting from the identified educational needs of young Romanian people under 35, including entrepreneurs and students, which were surveyed based on a questionnaire, we advance several key improvement areas for Romanian business curricula, and suggest critical paths to obtain desired results.

A comparative perspective, examining curricular specificities in most entrepreneurial cultures of Europe, based on information obtained from Entrepreneurship Eurobarometer and Doing Business Indicators, is also included in our study. The main limitations, which arise from the subjective perspective of young entrepreneurs, as well as from the reduced sample volume, are thus corrected.

This interim report on 1 project at the Berkeley Center for Research and Development in Higher Education deals with the construction of a theoretical model of the curricular -instructional subsystem.

The relationship between student unrest and the poor quality of education in American colleges has long been evident to educational researchers. The study has been accomplished using the qualitative and quantitative research, using the bibliographic study, various secondary sources and different primary sources.

The study is developed with a marketing research and accomplished using the survey method. The collected data, based on the established sample, is evaluated through univariate and bivariate analysis. In accordance with the evaluated sample, specific gaps from each region are identified regarding the curricular offer of the analysed universities. Conceptualising Curricular Space in Busyness Education.

The curriculum is conceived as a three-dimensional, aesthetic artefact that elicits sensory responses and judgements about meaning that can impact learning. The Japanese concept of ma is proposed as a fruitful way of thinking about space in curricula not as wasteful, inefficient or a mere void to be filled but as the element that enables learning to result from exposing students to structures and content This study was grounded in the belief systems and physical activity literature and investigated preservice teachers' belief systems toward curricular outcomes for physical education programs.

Preservice teachers…. This study attempts to clarify and exploit Joseph Schwab's recent and current work on "practical" and "eclectic" curriculums in a simulated deliberation about a concrete curricular question, How might "Hamlet" be taught to one group of high school juniors?

Procuramos ainda, compreender em que perspectiva multicultural os documentos anal Children's self-allocation and use of classroom curricular time.

Each environment offered the children a differing relationship with curricular time, its control and allocation, moving from teacher-allocated time to child allocation. Pupil self-report and classroom observation indicated differences in the balance of curricular spread and allocated time on curricular subject in relation to the type of classroom organisation and who controlled classroom time.

These differences were at both class and individual child level. The established negotiative environment recorded the most equitable curricular balance, traditional directive the least. While individual children responded differently within and across the three classroom environments, the established negotiative where time was under child control recorded preference for longer activity periods compared to where the teacher controlled time allocations. We describe specific curricular decisions employed at Butler University that have resulted in student achievement in the actuarial science major.

The paper includes a discussion of how these decisions might be applied in the context of a new actuarial program. Medical education must emphasize communication practices mostly for undergraduate medical students.

To introduce an approach for teaching and learning communication in medicine. An approach for developing communicational practices for both undergraduate and post graduate students is presented.

Full Text Available As the cultural and linguistic diversity continues to increase in Florida s K public school population, the demand for teachers trained to address their unique needs becomes paramount. Previously a responsibility of Florida s school districts, ESOL English for Speakers of Other Languages training has been delegated to colleges of education per state mandate. This mandate requires that graduates of initial teacher certification programs in the state s universities demonstrate competency in all of the 25 Florida Performance Standards for Teachers of English for Speakers of Other Languages.

In order to satisfy this charge, colleges of education in Florida are following a variety of training models: stand-alone courses, curricular infusion, or a combination of the two. A large, metropolitan university in Central Florida has developed an integrated model consisting of two stand-alone courses, field experience integration of the standards, and curricular infusion of ESOL standards via on-lone modules in methods courses.

The authors, who teach methods courses in which such infusion has been recently effected, surveyed their students to obtain feedback regarding the modules , the results of which are discussed in this paper. Patient safety and infection control: bases for curricular integration.

To analyze curricular integration between teaching of patient safety and good infection prevention and control practices. Integrative review, designed to answer the question: "How does curricular integration of content about 'patient safety teaching' and content about 'infection prevention and control practices' occur in undergraduate courses in the health field? The final sample consisted of 13 studies.

After content analysis, primary studies were grouped into two subject categories: "Innovative teaching practices" and " Curricular evaluation.

Patient safety related to infection prevention and control practices is present in the curriculum of health undergraduate courses, but is not coordinated with other themes, is taught sporadically, and focuses mainly on hand hygiene.

Curricular trends in Malaysian medical schools: innovations within. Various curricular innovations were adopted by medical schools worldwide in an attempt to produce medical graduates that could meet future healthcare needs of society locally and globally.

This paper presents findings on curricular approaches implemented in Malaysian medical schools, in trying to meet those needs. Information was obtained from published records, responses from various questionnaires, personal communication and involvement with curricular development. Curricular innovations tended to be implemented in new medical schools upon their establishment. Established medical schools seemed to implement these innovations much later.

Curricular trends appear to move towards integration, student-centred and problem-based learning as well as community-oriented medical education, with the Student-centred learning, Problem-based learning, Integrated teaching, Community-based education, Electives and Systematic programme SPICES model used as a reference.

The focus is based on the premise that although the short-term aim of undergraduate medical education in Malaysia is to prepare graduates for the pre-registration house officer year, they must be able to practise and make decisions independently and be sensitive to the needs of the country's multiracial, multi-religious, and often remote communities. In most cases, curricular planning starts with a prescriptive model where planners focus on several intended outcomes.

However, as the plan is implemented and evaluated it becomes descriptive as the planners reassess the internal and external factors that affect outcomes. A common trend in community-oriented educational activities is evident, with the introduction of interesting variations, to ensure that the curriculum can be implemented, sustained and the intended outcomes achieved. Analysis of curricular reform practices at Chinese medical schools.

A comprehensive search of the literature published between and was performed to gain a greater understanding of curricular reform practices at Chinese medical schools.



This type of pig may represent genetic resources for the improvement of commercial breeds, which are desired to be introduced in the tropics as improved synthetic or native breeds. The low levels of production reported for the CPM in comparison with the modern breeds, do not allow it to compete with the production volumes necessary for a meat industry of Iberian products, so it is necessary to search for animal breeding alternatives such as crossbreeding. ABSTRACT: Mexico is center of origin the maize and has areas considered as maize genetic diversity centers, which continues to be very important for all of Mexico, because it is the main source of food. Coahuila presents seven polygons considered as centers of origin and diversity of this crop, it hosts races and variants between races improved by farmers by to the free flow of genes, either by pollen or seed, creates an open seed system, subject to evolutionary processes of genetic drift, genetic flow and selection, in which the destination of introduced transgenes is difficult to predict.
