    Putting Students in the Lecturers Shoes

    Get PDF
    Placing the students in the Lecturers' shoes aimed to develop and deepen the student learning through students' investigating planning, developing, and delivering supplementary instruction to support theirs and their peers learning, teaching and assessment in a module. The paper highlights the approach adopted and applied at level 4 nursing, 5 engineering, or 6 sports management students with a view to promote student learning autonomy. As previous research indicates that this style of higher educational teaching encourages students to discover and reflect on a subject. Nortcliffe (2005) suggests that when students have been given the opportunity to drive and deliver a module: the module assessment results indicate that a higher level of learning. In addition as indicated in this paper from feedback from staff and students this approach offers the students an opportunity to develop different key skills, autonomous learning and active learning styles. However, it should be noted that not all students are willing to engage and place the effort into such a formative learning exercise despite the evidence clearly shows a deeper level of learning and understanding by the students as result of engagement in supplementary instruction

    Safety for meat packers and processors : a manual for the meat packing and meat processing industries of Mimssouri incorportating pertinent material from the Williams-Steiger Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970

    "2/75/1.5M""Prepared Under Special Contract To: The Task Force On Occupational Safety & Health Labor and Industrial Relations Commission Department of Labor and Industrial Relations State of Missouri "This manual is designed to assist management of meat packing establishments to develop a program of voluntary compliance with the standards set forth under the authority of the Williams-Steiger Occupational Safety and Health Act, 1970. This material covers the major specific standards under the Act that concern the meat packing industry. Our purpose is to point out situations in the work environment that are possible violations of the Act, and to refer the reader's attention to the section of the Federal Register that sets forth standards covering the possible violations. Management personnel of the meat packing industry are urged to keep informed of periodic changes in the standards of the Act. Information on these revisions may be obtained from UMC 1s Industrial and Technical Referral Center or from any of the industrial extension specialists located throughout Missouri.--Prefac

    Characterization of the spore surface and exosporium proteins of Clostridium sporogenes; implications for Clostridium botulinum group I strains.

    Get PDF
    Clostridium sporogenes is a non-pathogenic close relative and surrogate for Group I (proteolytic) neurotoxin-producing Clostridium botulinum strains. The exosporium, the sac-like outermost layer of spores of these species, is likely to contribute to adhesion, dissemination, and virulence. A paracrystalline array, hairy nap, and several appendages were detected in the exosporium of C. sporogenes strain NCIMB 701792 by EM and AFM. The protein composition of purified exosporium was explored by LC-MS/MS of tryptic peptides from major individual SDS-PAGE-separated protein bands, and from bulk exosporium. Two high molecular weight protein bands both contained the same protein with a collagen-like repeat domain, the probable constituent of the hairy nap, as well as cysteine-rich proteins CsxA and CsxB. A third cysteine-rich protein (CsxC) was also identified. These three proteins are also encoded in C. botulinum Prevot 594, and homologues (75-100% amino acid identity) are encoded in many other Group I strains. This work provides the first insight into the likely composition and organization of the exosporium of Group I C. botulinum spores

    Measurement of Inclusive W and Z Boson Production Cross Sections in pp Collisions at s√=8  TeV

    A measurement of total and fiducial inclusive W and Z boson production cross sections in pp collisions at s√=8  TeV is presented. Electron and muon final states are analyzed in a data sample collected with the CMS detector corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 18.2±0.5  pb−1. The measured total inclusive cross sections times branching fractions are σ(pp→WX)×B(W→ℓν)=12.21±0.03(stat)±0.24(syst)±0.32(lum)  nb and σ(pp→ZX)×B(Z→ℓ+ℓ−)=1.15±0.01(stat)±0.02(syst)±0.03(lum)  nb for the dilepton mass in the range of 60—120 GeV. The measured values agree with next-to-next-to-leading-order QCD cross section calculations. Ratios of cross sections are reported with a precision of 2%. This is the first measurement of inclusive W and Z boson production in proton-proton collisions at s√=8  TeV
