Россия в диалоге культур

Россия в диалоге культур

Автор:

Предлагаемое учебное пособие предназначено для студентов-иностранцев и иностранных преподавателей, владеющих русским языком на уровне С1. Оно может быть также использовано для формирования базовой культуры и функциональной грамотности личности учащихся старших классов российских школ и детей российских соотечественников за рубежом. Пособие базируется на методической концепции, отличающей его от предлагаемых на современном рынке учебников русского языка: базовая культура личности в диалоге с другими культурами. Формирование базовой культуры личности одновременно формирует и функциональную грамотность личности, т.е. способность гражданина цивилизованного общества выполнять свои элементарные профессиональные, общественные и жизненные обязанности и реализовать свои основные права. Пособие включает следующие разделы, основанные на базовой культуре личности: — Культура вероисповедания — Правовая культура — Экономическая культура — Экологическая культура Содержание пособия имеет модульный характер: его разделы не связаны друг с другом как в содержательном, так и в языковом плане и могут изучаться автономно по выбору преподавателя или обучающихся

Underwater Supercavitating Projectiles

Underwater Supercavitating Projectiles

Автор:

Super-cavitation is the state of the art technology that may revolutionize underwater propulsion systems. Super-caviatating bodies can achieve very high speeds under water by virtue of reduced hydrodynamic drag with respect to fully wetted underwater vehicles. A cavitation bubble is generated at the nose, by virtue of that skin friction drag is drastically reduced.This study will be carried out to investigate various aspects of axisymmetric super-caviatating projectiles. In this project, it is aimed at the optimization of the cavitator shape for axisymmetric bodies in partially caviatating flow, at different front end profiles with different angle of attack.

Виртуальные приборы в учебном и научном процессе

Автор:

Рассмотрены возможности создания и использования современных разнообразных виртуальных приборов (ВП). Компьютерные ВП являются новым классом современного продвинутого учебного и научно-исследовательского оборудования. ВП основаны на полноценном использовании возможностей современных компьютеров, которые способны к генерации, регистрации и разносторонней обработке внешних сигналов. Огромное разнообразие, часто очень дешевых и в то же время чувствительных датчиков, открывает самые широкие возможности для выбора процессов, регистрируемых такими ВП. Интересно новое техническое решение прямого ввода сигналов в компьютер, минуя блок внешнего аналогово-цифрового преобразования, учитывая, что таковым является, по существу, комплекс звуковой карты компьютера и самого ВП. Приводятся примеры разработки и использования ВП с различными датчиками и простые и чувствительные системы ввода сигналов в компьютер. Монография предназначена для преподавателей и научных работников ВУЗов медико-биологического профиля, для врачей и специалистов в области оздоровления и студентов биологических, медицинских, химических и других высших учебных заведений.

The Online Program Economic Risk Assessment Model

The Online Program Economic Risk Assessment Model

Автор:

The Online Program Economic Risk Assessment (OPERA) model is a guide to assist educational institutions in the design, launch, and operation of online degree programs. While every organization will have different costs, the OPERA model presents cost categories and percentages of total expenditures that can inform online programs to expected costs and the relative magnitude of those costs. The OPERA model should serve as a helpful planning tool to project the expected expenses associated with launching or operating an online degree program.

Sustainability is not an option but imperative. The environmental issues are complex and needs integrated approach to address them. The constitution of Ethiopia has assigned the community, the responsibility of protecting the environmental resources and the earth to such an extent that future generations inherits a sustainable environment that is worthy of leaving. The technological revolution in various sectors in the recent years has benefited to some extent for an environmentally sound and sustainable development. The agricultural sector in Tigray, Ethiopia is now undergoing process of transformation in building economic sustainability by integrating natural resource management to maintain the livelihood of the farming people. Indeed, the outcomes being observed in the region has to be kept in a sustainable manner. This book presents a comprehensive picture of sustainability. The changes from bare lands to sustainable agricultural fields have been discussed in depth.

Insights into Life Skills

Insights into Life Skills

Автор:

How individuals respond to and handle conflict in the workplace is one of the growing areas of interest and concern among scholars and professionals working in a wide range of disciplines. Prior work situated as an effort to understand how training people on conflict theory can manifest behavioral change in the workplace is rare. This evaluation study seeks to explore the link between the constructs of self-awareness and cooperative conflict. The primary aim is to gain a sense of learner’s current level of self-reported conflict handling skills and then measure whether the Insights into Lifeskills Project curriculum facilitates the transition to more complex levels. These measures are taken through the use of a primary survey instrument. Post results of a six-week utilization-focused intervention develop an argument that individuals oriented to these constructs are better able to regulate conflict in the workplace through exercising self-awareness and cooperative conflict skills. As a result of explicit instruction in self-awareness skills and conflict response styles, findings report that the participants showed pronounced gains in their ability to handle conflict constructively.

Emotional Intelligence and English Achievement

Emotional Intelligence and English Achievement

Автор:

The focus of this study was to investigate the relationship among a set of variables that might influence students’ level of achievement in English. Of primary interest was the influence of emotional intelligence. Other variables included: (a) family encouragement for learning English, (b) study habits, (c) levels of engagement, and (d) attitudes toward studying English. Relationships among variables were included in a model that was developed through a review of the literature. Structural Equation Modelling was the primary method used to analyse data, with AMOS selected as the programme to test the model. Results suggest that emotional intelligence has a direct effect on students’ achievement in English. In addition, they suggest that emotional intelligence affects achievement in English indirectly, through family encouragement, study habits, and levels of engagement. This study provides a useful contribution to the understanding of emotional intelligence. It encourage policy makers, classroom practitioners, and families to remember that emotional intelligence should be promoted for students to benefit fully from learning opportunity offered at school, and within the home.

This reports on a small-scale study of black (African-Caribbean) mature women and their experiences as higher education students. This is investigated in relation to the ethos of the post 1992 universities and the social circumstances in which non-traditional black students find themselves. It explores the current practices of policies and roles of higher education in England and investigates the problems and challenges faced by this particular group of students and searches for practical suggestions to improve the effectiveness of their experiences. Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been used as a framework for examining the university experiences of mature black women students using both qualitative and quantitative research methods, as well as the effectiveness of widening participation policy, and takes a feminist perspective to engage methodologically with participants adopting a multi-method approach. Findings revealed that the majority of students who participated, experienced poor behaviour and bad attitudes and expressed dissatisfaction with their tutors. Nonetheless, their attitude towards higher education and what they have achieved so far were found to be positive.
