Intraocular Pressure Sensor Design Challenge

Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Acting as if they are biomedical engineers, students design and print 3D prototypes of pressure sensors that measure the pressure of the eyes of people diagnosed with glaucoma. After completing the tasks within the associated lesson, students conduct research on pressure gauges, apply their understanding of radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and its components, iterate their designs to make improvements, and use 3D software to design and print 3D prototypes. After successful 3D printing, teams present their models to their peers. If a 3D printer is not available, use alternate fabrication materials such as modeling clay, or end the activity once the designs are complete.

Introduction to LGBTQ+ Studies: A Cross-Disciplinary Approach
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Designed for an introductory course, this textbook takes a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of LGBTQ+ issues that helps students grasp core concepts through a variety of different perspectives.

Introduction to LGBTQ+ Studies offers accessible, academically sound information on a wide range of topics, including history, culture, and Queer Theory; an exploration of LGBTQ+ relationships, families, parenting, health, and education; and how to conduct research on LGBTQ+ topics. The book explores LGBTQ+ issues from the ancient world to contemporary global perspectives.

Employing an intersectional analysis, the textbook highlights how sexuality and gender are simultaneously experienced and constructed through other structures of inequality and privilege, such as race and class. The text supports multiple learning styles by integrating visual elements, multimedia resources, discussion and project prompts, and resources for further research throughout the textbook.

Introduction to Sociology 2e adheres to the scope and sequence of a typical, one-semester introductory sociology course. It offers comprehensive coverage of core concepts, foundational scholars, and emerging theories, which are supported by a wealth of engaging learning materials. The textbook presents detailed section reviews with rich questions, discussions that help students apply their knowledge, and features that draw learners into the discipline in meaningful ways. The second edition retains the book’s conceptual organization, aligning to most courses, and has been significantly updated to reflect the latest research and provide examples most relevant to today’s students. In order to help instructors transition to the revised version, the 2e changes are described within the preface.

Kinship Caregivers and Social Workers: The Challenge of Collaboration
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This curriculum was developed as an empirical foundation for a practice model that facilitates collaboration toward providing the highest level of service for at-risk children and their families. It teaches collaboration in nine areas: legal issues, financial issues, health and mental health, education/school, family relationships, child management, support services, fair and equal treatment, and general satisfaction. It is organized around five competency areas: respecting the knowledge, skills, and experiences of others; building trust by meeting needs; facilitating communication; creating an atmosphere in which cultural tradition, values, and diversity are respected; and using negotiation skills. The curriculum is divided into five sections: Introduction to the Curriculum, Conducting the Training, Training Modules (two 3-hour modules for in-service training), Classroom Modules (for undergraduates and graduates), References and Annotated Bibliography.

Panoptes and the Bionic Eye
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Vision is the primary sense of many animals and much is known about how vision is processed in the mammalian nervous system. One distinct property of the primary visual cortex is a highly organized pattern of sensitivity to location and orientation of objects in the visual field. But how did we learn this? An important tool is the ability to design experiments to map out the structure and response of a system such as vision. In this activity, students learn about the visual system and then conduct a model experiment to map the visual field response of a Panoptes robot. (In Greek mythology, Argus Panoptes was the "all-seeing" watchman giant with 100 eyes.) A simple activity modification enables a true black box experiment, in which students do not directly observe how the visual system is configured, and must match the input to the output in order to reconstruct the unseen system inside the box.

Pathology Case Study: 36 Year Old Man with Nasopharyngeal Tumor

(This case study was added to OER Commons as one of a batch of over 700. It has relevant information which may include medical imagery, lab results, and history where relevant. A link to the final diagnosis can be found at the end of the case study for review. The first paragraph of the case study -- typically, but not always the clinical presentation -- is provided below.)

A 36-year-old man presented with a large nasal tumor following a long history of multiple meningiomas. At the age of 13, the patient underwent surgical resection and received a single course of radiation therapy for a left optic meningioma. He did well until age 33, when he was found to have multiple meningiomas in three new locations: falcine (Figure 1a), right petroclival and right anterior foramen magnum. These were surgically resected but no additional radiation was administered. Three years later, the patient presented with nasal symptoms, headaches, and seizures. Imaging studies revealed a large mass with intracranial and nasopharyngeal component measuring 4.1 x 5.4 x 6.8 cm in greatest dimensions and causing right frontal lobe compression (Figures 1b and 1c). A systemic workup, including PET CT, for other malignancies was unremarkable. A two-stage surgical resection was performed. The mass was initially biopsied by transsphenoidal endoscopic approach and then partially resected by bifrontal craniotomy, frontal sinus obliteration, en bloc ethmoidectomy, and nasal cavity resection.

A 47 year old woman from Honduras presented with severe headache and left eye pain. An initial evaluation by a local ophthalmologist revealed no significant findings. Diagnostic imaging at the time demonstrated a sellar mass lesion. She was commenced on cabergoline, but this was ceased due to nausea, vomiting, and tumor progression. Her headaches persisted and she subsequently developed left eye exophthalmos, ptosis, and ophthalmoplegia. Follow-up CT demonstrated significant growth of the mass and involvement of the left orbital apex and cavernous sinus. She was started on corticosteroids and it was recommended she seek care of this lesion at our center.
