Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects 3-5% of the global population While diagnosis is an important first step to accessing proper care ADHD often goes undiagnosed or undertreated, including in the UK To understand why that might be, researchers interviewed general practitioners (GPs) and patients across the country The team discovered several barriers, including the sheer complexity of pathways to care lack of services limited GP recognition and knowledge of ADHD and communication difficulties among GPs and patients The findings suggest that GPs might be ill equipped to identify and manage ADHD in primary care And they highlight areas of improvement specific to the UK healthcare system For their part, the team has devised an educational resource to enhance understanding of ADHD, accessible at www.adhdinfo.org..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

The class of CIVE230: Engineering and Sustainable Development have been at it again, learning remotely in Spring 2021. This is the second COVID-19 edition of the course!The course introduces sustainability on two levels: qualitative concepts and background information is covered; and quantitative models which emphasize core engineering methods are applied to sustainability problems. Quantitative methods are derived and applied to air quality, water quality, energy and solid waste. Attention is given to sustainable urban systems, as they apply to both developed and developing countries. Sustainability concepts covering the triple bottom line are also presented, and their applicability to sustainable cities are demonstrated. Students in the course were tasked with making a contribution to an e-book. They were creative and innovative in applying course concepts to cities of their choice and exploring sustainability challenges and innovations. Their sustainability project encouraged them to explore sustainable infrastructure, solutions and technologies in Canada and globally to generate an enriched learning experience and to tie ideas to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the Canadian Engineering Grand Challenges (CEGC).

Learning about sustainability requires systems-thinking and a curiosity to explore. When learning opportunities are created for students so that go beyond the course content by learning from the world around us and from each other, they get so much more out of the course. This e-book has been the project experience that allowed students to explore topics of their choice in cities of their choice!This e-book serves as a contribution by the class for the class, and for the wider UW and engineering community.

Below is a link to an interdisciplinary, tech-enriched Earth Day themed unit of study.  The unit was designed for 3rd/4th-grade learners.  The unit was designed to develop an understanding of important environmental issues so that students are more aware of the actions they can take to protect the Earth and environment. It was also planned with the intention of connecting concepts and ideas across multiple disciplines. This allows students to understand that topics can be interrelated regardless of subject matter. Teaching thematically helps deepen understanding by bringing ideas together to create more meaningful learning.This unit also strives to include technologies that do not simply act as substitutes for traditional activities.  Instead, it attempts to integrate technologies that can modify and transform learning tasks into more meaningful, collaborative, and differentiated activities.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RFtsd2UT-M7m8KKZ6Q-8HwU8aZvtkxwdJLVHBTZvM9U/edit?usp=sharingAuthors:Nick Tirozzi, Karen Frawley, Harry Bartlett, and Kristie Guevremont

International Politics and Climate Change, Fall 2007

This course examines the interconnections of international politics and climate change. Beginning with an analysis of the strategic and environmental legacies of the 20th Century, it explores the politicization of the natural environment, the role of science in this process, and the gradual shifts in political concerns to incorporate "nature". Two general thrusts of climate-politics connections are pursued, namely those related to (a) conflict - focusing on threats to security due to environmental dislocations and (b) cooperation - focusing on the politics of international treaties that have contributed to emergent processes for global accord in response to evidence of climate change. The course concludes by addressing the question of: "What Next?

An Introduction to Global Health - Disease-specific Risk Factors - Part 1 of 2 (09:52)

Rating
0.0 stars

Infectious diseases have a specific, ethiological cause, e.g. a microbe such as tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, most people exposed to TB does not develop the disease. What determines this may be poverty, weakening of the person by other diseases or smoking and alcohol. So-called life-style diseases are (also) determined by the way you live, and include prevalent non-communicable diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardio-vascular diseases, but besides of risk factors such as smoking and drinking or over-eating, the living conditions matter equally and sometimes more. The environment, climate changes, urbanization, socio-economic factors all impact health and disease. When an individual grows older, patterns of his/her diseases changes: the same applies when a society grows ‘older’.

Previously infectious diseases previously caused the majority of ill-health and premature death globally, but in high- and middle-income countries during the 20.th century infectious diseases – with the exception of HIV – declined. Introduction of hygiene and discovery of microbes and later vaccines an antibiotics contributed to the decline, but changing living conditions with better housing, nutrition, water and sanitation were the main drivers of infectious diseases’ decline.

Created by NHPRC Teacher Participant/Creator Jennifer Suri for her Global Studies class; Adaptable to other grades. New York City is a city of immigrants. Every neighborhood has a history connected to the wider history of immigration and migration. This assignment asks students to document some of the changes to their neighborhood from 1965 to present. Why 1965? This was the year President Johnson passed the Immigration and Naturalization Act which abolished the previous quota system based on national origin. This brought about major changes in the numbers and groups immigrating to the United States.
