Conceptualization and measurement of organism-environment interaction( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A book examining the paradox that organism-environment interaction has been well documented for a variety of developmental outcomes but that this interaction has been difficult to demonstrate in behavioral research studies, the "Conceptualization and Measurement of Organism-Environment Interaction" is now off press. Examples of conceptual and methodological factors that have blocked researchers' abilities to identify existing organism-environment interactions are discussed. Some of these factors include studies with insufficient power to detect interactions, studies that oversimplify the processes of interactions, statistical analyses that are insensitive to certain interactions, research strategies that are marred by a poor choice of groups or measures, and a lack of the theory-driven research that is most likely to reveal interactions. By clarifying these shortcomings, the authors aim to promote more and better research on the developmental effects of organism-environment interactions.

Realizing the potential : improving postsecondary teaching learning, and assessment by James L Ratcliff( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes research findings on the improvement of postsecondary teaching, learning, and assessment. It was found that 2-year and 4-year institutions provided relatively equal cognitive gains for students after the initial year, and that African American students attending historically black colleges or universities showed comparable first-year cognitive gains to their counterparts attending predominantly white institutions. It was also found that the most influential experiences in noncontent learning for students involved human interactions with other students and faculty. Active student involvement in their own learning (through collaborative learning, internships, and meaningful work-study) brought students greater learning effectiveness. Research indicated that while faculty are innovative and adjust their teaching styles to accommodate students' needs, little reward exists in the system for such investment. Faculty who spent more time on research and publishing and less time on teaching earned the highest salaries. It is concluded that faculty, administrators, and state legislators need to welcome diversity, assess student development to show pathways to improvement, and support efforts to encourage, educate, and assist new faculty to become skilled and proficient at curriculum planning, instruction, and advising.

Documents Stanley Milgram's early 1960's study on obedience to authority.

Marine hydrokinetic turbine power-take-off design for optimal performance and low impact on cost-of-energy : preprint( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marine hydrokinetic devices are becoming a popular method for generating marine renewable energy worldwide. These devices generate electricity by converting the kinetic energy of moving water, wave motion or currents, into electrical energy through the use of a Power-Take-Off (PTO) system. Most PTO systems incorporate a mechanical or hydraulic drive train, power generator and electric control/conditioning system to deliver the generated electric power to the grid at the required state. Like wind turbine applications, the PTO system must be designed for high reliability, good efficiency, and long service life with reasonable maintenance requirements, low cost and an appropriate mechanical design for anticipated applied steady and unsteady loads. The ultimate goal of a PTO design is high efficiency, low maintenance and cost with a low impact on the device Cost-of-Energy (CoE)
