Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This assignment is about exploring alternative ways of sharing goods and services and understanding the benefits, drawbacks, and implications of these methods. Students are asked to choose one of seven non-market distribution methods, such as majority rule, contests, force, first-come/first-served, sharing equally, lottery, and personal characteristics, and observe how it is implemented in real-life scenarios. They need to explain the distribution method, who benefits from it, who is excluded, and the advantages and disadvantages of using it. Students also have to find a real-life example of the chosen non-market distribution method, describe how it is used, and assess its fairness and efficiency. Lastly, they are required to include a citation and ensure their submission is no less than 180 words and comprises a list of cited works. The goal of the assignment is to better understand how goods and services are distributed and how these methods affect different groups of people.

Academic Career Kit | Find and Share Research Data

Rating
0.0 stars

The toolkit addresses research data management, a topic that is a burden for many in the research routine. However, there is a lot in it for researchers, if they document, backup, and eventually share their research data. It can get cited and will influence their metrics. Also, many journals and third party funders require the publication of research data – for the sake of transparency, quality control and synergy effects in research. In this toolkit, researchers can find materials and information on managing their own data – but also search portals, in which they can find high quality research data themselves.

The toolkit shows several ways of how to get in touch with other researchers and discuss findings at an early stage in research networks, conferences, and in social media. It presents open tools for co-writing, online meetings, reference- and project management.

The Acceleration of the Great Migration, 1916-17
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Students work in groups to examine excerpts from primary source documents. They identify social and economic factors affecting specific categories of people when the Great Migration accelerated in 1916 to 1917: black migrant workers from the South, southern planters, southern small-farm farmers, northern industrialists, agents, and white immigrant workers in the North. Each student group creates a "perspectives page" to post for a gallery walk where students analyze the causes of the Great Migration and the changes it brought to both the North and South. Students also discuss the specific economic factors that influenced the Great Migration: scarcity, supply, demand, surplus, shortage, and opportunity cost. Using the PACED decisionmaking model, they analyze the alternatives and criteria of potential migrants.
