8.022 Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism (MIT) 8.022 Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism (MIT)

Description

This course runs parallel to 8.02, but assumes that students have some knowledge of vector calculus. The class introduces Maxwell's equations, in both differential and integral form, along with electrostatic and magnetic vector potential, and the properties of dielectrics and magnetic materials. This class was taught by an undergraduate in the Experimental Study Group (ESG). Student instructors are paired with ESG faculty members, who advise and oversee the students' teaching efforts.

21H.104J Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History (MIT) 21H.104J Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History (MIT)

Description

This course uses readings and discussions to focus on a series of short-term events that shed light on American politics, culture, and social organization. It emphasizes finding ways to make sense of these complicated, highly traumatic events, and on using them to understand larger processes of change in American history. The class also gives students experience with primary documentation research through a term paper assignment.

Changing law: mental capacity legislation Changing law: mental capacity legislation

Description

The aim of this free course, Changing law: mental capacity legislation, is to consider how legal problems are identified and how the law develops to address those problems. It uses the evolution of legislation on decision making for mentally incapacitated adults to explore how development of the law is achieved. Through this study of the background to, and history of, the passage of legislation relating to mental capacity, legal meaning is discussed and explored.

International Law (M)OOC (ILOOC)

Description

The International Law (M)OOC (ILOOC) from the University of Northampton does not require users to have had any previous experience or practice in International Law. It is intended to give a flavour of the topic, and to provide a foundation upon which further study in the area may be built. At the University of Northampton we partly use ILOOC as the “MOOC” part of a wider CPD course, which gives access to our LLM (Master of Laws) courses. The course is available as a MOOC on Coursesites (http://bit.ly/ILOOC-Site), free of charge for any learner to enrol and participate. This ZIP file contains the main course content and can be directly transferred into a Learning Management System (LMS) that supports the IMS/SCORM import. This file has been tested on Blackboard 9.1 and Desire2Learn, but

The Iran deal Is worth it, even if they misbehave The Iran deal Is worth it, even if they misbehave

Description

As Congress’ vote on the Iran deal this week enters the theater of the absurd, a resolution edges closer. Cases have been made for and against the deal and its future capital for U.S. foreign policy. However, dissenting voices in the debate fall foul to a key assumption on how Iran is likely to behave if the deal is ratified: that, given the nature of its regime, Iran will inevitably break promises and behave belligerently. Instead, and given the multilateral currents of the deal (chiefly its preamble and limitations), I argue that Iran is less likely to try to spoil the international system and its norms, and is more likely to game them. This distinction is important to understanding Iran’s motivation in signing the deal, and counter-intuitively, in understanding how the deal strength As Congress’ vote on the Iran deal this week enters the theater of the absurd, a resolution edges closer.

21H.104J Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History (MIT) 21H.104J Riots, Strikes, and Conspiracies in American History (MIT)

Description

This course uses readings and discussions to focus on a series of short-term events that shed light on American politics, culture, and social organization. It emphasizes finding ways to make sense of these complicated, highly traumatic events, and on using them to understand larger processes of change in American history. The class also gives students experience with primary documentation research through a term paper assignment.

So, what was Magna Carta? So, what was Magna Carta?

Description

This year, we celebrate the eight-hundredth anniversary of one of the most revered documents in English history. On 15 June 1215 at Runnymede (a small meadow outside of London, marking the midpoint between two armies locked in civil war) King John set his seal on Magna Carta – the ‘great charter’ that has become synonymous throughout the world with opposition to arbitrary rule, and with the protection of individual rights and liberties. But what, exactly, was Magna Carta? Few of John’s contemporaries could have guessed at its enduring and universal significance. Magna Carta was the product of a specific breakdown ...
