LabTutor, a combined book and software system, provides an introduction to the principles and practice of laboratory data acquisition, experimental control, and data processing using any hardware/software system. It includes specific instructions and examples on how to use LabVIEW, a graphical programming language from National Instruments used for developing automated instrumentation systems. LabTutor allows new users to make effective use of laboratory computers with as little as ten hours of effort and to become accomplished practitioners with less than forty hours of effort. The printed version offers the convenience and readability of an ordinary book, while the hypertext version includes sound and animation to clarify certain concepts and offers the advantage of rapid searching, making it useful as an online manual. LabTutor can be used as a primary package for a course on laboratory computers, as a supplement in traditional laboratory courses, or as a self-guided tutorial for those learning to use laboratory computers on their own.

This book provides a comprehensive overview on several aspects of remote laboratories development and usage, and their potential impact in the teaching and learning processes using selected e-learning experiences.The book is based on the presentations and discussions carried out at «International Meeting on Professional Remote Laboratories», which took place in University of Deusto, Bilbao, in the period of November 16-17, 2006. Apart from chapters based on the presentations, some others have also been included in this book. In this way, we hope to give a broad, well balanced and up-to-date picture of the current status of remote labs and their role within the e-learning paradigm.

The Teaching and Learning of Social Research Methods

Developments in Pedagogical Knowledge

The importance of the teaching and learning of social research methods is increasingly recognised by research councils and policy bodies as crucial to the drive to increase capacity amongst the research community. The need for greater scholarly engagement with how research methods are taught and learnt is also driven by the realisation that epistemological and methodological developments have not been accompanied by a pedagogical literature or culture. Training initiatives need this pedagogic input if they are to realise the educational aspirations for methodologically skilled and competent researchers, able to apply, adapt and reflect on a range of high-level research methods and approaches. The contributors to this collection have fully engaged with this need to develop and share pedagogical knowledge in relation to the teaching of research methods. Together they span qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods, a range of disciplinary and national contexts, and face-to-face and blended teaching and learning. Through detailed examples, the collection addresses how best teaching practices develop in response to distinctive challenges that will resonate with readers; in so doing it will inspire and inform their own development. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Social Research Methodology.

The Patterns of Architecture

Author: Mark Garcia

Publisher: Academy Press


Category: Architecture

Page: 144

Pattern–making is ubiquitous in both the natural and manmade world. The human propensity for pattern recognition and fabrication is innate. Encompassing the historical, vernacular and parametric, this title explores the creation, materialisation and theorisation of some of the world′s most significant and spectacularly patterned spaces. It investigates how interiors, buildings, cities and landscapes are patterned through design, production and manufacturing, use, time, accident and perception. It also brings into focus how contemporary advanced spatial practices and CAD/CAM are now pushing patterns to encompass a greater range of structural, programmatic, aesthetic and material effects and properties. Extending patterns far beyond the surface notion of style and decoration, Patterns of Architecture assesses how and why the deployment of patterns is shaping the future of architecture. Analysed through a multidisciplinary and international series of essays and designs from architects, engineers, academics, researchers and expert professionals in the field. Key contributors include: Hanif Kara, Patrik Schumacher and Alejandro Zaera–Polo.
