The changing nature of work : implications for occupational analysis by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores the increasing demographic diversity of the workforce, the fluidity of boundaries between lines of work, the interdependent choices for how work is structured - and ultimately, the need for an integrated systematic approach to understanding how work is changing. The book offers a rich array of data and highlighted examples on markets, technology, and many other external conditions affecting the nature of work; research findings on American workers and how they feel about work; downsizing and the trend toward flatter organizational hierarchies; and autonomy, complexity, and other aspects of work structure."--BOOK JACKET

Mathematics, science, and technology education : a research agenda by National Research Council Mathematics( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The six chapters in this report focus on: (1) a basic orientation for a focused research agenda; (2) research on reasoning (considering the development of competence and the search for generality in reasoning skills); (3) research on instruction (examining research on teachers, curricula and curricular materials, and testing); (4) research on settings (discussing research on classroom settings, the political and social context of science and mathematics education, the home as a setting for education, and out-of-classroom settings); (5) research on new learning systems (discussing research on interactive computer software, research on microsystems, and research on developing a systems approach to improving mathematics and science education); and (6) a summary of a research agenda (considering separately, research on reasoning, instruction, settings, and new learning systems). A list of background papers is included in an appendix. The report neither describes nor endorses a program for educational reform. The intent is simply to suggest a strategy for research and development that would provide somewhat better answers to such practical questions of educational change as how to design and teach new courses to ensure student achievement and what makes an effective teacher or a good school.

A matter of size : triennial review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative by Committee to Review the National Nanotechnology Initiative( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) was created in 2000 to focus and coordinate the nanoscience and nanotechnology research and development (R & D) activities being funded by several federal agencies. The purpose of the NNI is to marshal these research activities in order to accelerate responsible development and deployment of nanotechnology for economic benefit and national security. To take stock of the progress of the NNI, Congress, in P.L. 108-153, the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act, directed the National Research Council to carry out a review of the program every three years. This report presents the results of the first of those reviews, which addresses the economic impact of nanotechnology developments and provides a benchmark of U.S.R & D efforts relative to those undertaken by foreign competitors. In addition, the report offers an assessment of the current status of responsible development of nanotechnology and comments on the feasibility of molecular self-assembly

Tanker spills : prevention by design by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can we design an oil tanker that meets our complex demands for environmental protection, economical operation, and crew safety? This volume evaluates and ranks a wide variety of tank ship hull designs proposed by experts around the world. Based on extensive research and studies, the book explores the implications of our rising demand for petroleum and increase in tanker operations; U.S. government regulations and U.S. Coast Guard policies regarding designs for new tank vessel construction; how new ship design would affect crew safety, maintenance, inspection, and other technical issues; the prospects for retrofitting existing tankers to reduce the risk of oil spills; and more. The conclusions and recommendations will be particularly important to maritime safety regulators in the United States and abroad; naval architects; ship operators and engineers; and officials in the petroleum, shipping, and marine insurance industries."

How people learn : bridging research and practice by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report asks how the insights from the research reviewed in the National Research Council's "How People Learn" (1999) can be incorporated into classroom practice. The report also suggests a research and development agenda that would inform and stimulate the required change. Following an introductory chapter that frames the agenda of the report, chapter 2 summarizes some of the key findings from "How People Learn" and outlines implications of those findings for teaching and for designing classroom environments. "How People Learn" is a large report; this document focuses on the findings and messages that are most relevant to classroom practice. Chapter 3 summarizes responses from educators and policymakers that were offered at a conference and workshop that discussed "How People Learn." More specific suggestions made by conference and workshop participants are incorporated into chapter 4, in which the workshop committee presents its recommendations for a research and development agenda. The agenda is organized around: (1) educational materials; (2) preservice and inservice education; (3) public policy; and (4) public opinion and the media. Appendixes list meeting participants with their biographical sketches. (Contains 58 references.) (Sld)
