Description

The course is directed at making scientifically sensible deductions from the combination of observations with dynamics and kinematics represented, generically, as "models". There are two overlapping central themeslinear "inverse" methods and data "assimilation" including regression, singular value decomposition, objective mapping, non-stationary models and data, Kalman filters, adjoint methods ("assimilation") etc.standard time series analysis, including basic statistics, Fourier methods, spectra, coherence, filtering, etc. The course is directed at making scientifically sensible deductions from the combination of observations with dynamics and kinematics represented, generically, as "models".

Teaching

Description

This is a format to be used as a basis for a participant-centred, developmental approach to Peer Observation. It is being used as part of C@N-DO, the CPD Scheme at the University of Northampton, which is accredited by the HEA, however it is designed to be relevant beyond that context. It could be used independently by individuals, or in a facilitated way by academic developers or others who are in a support role, and who may be guiding a peer observation process as part of a CPD Scheme or taught professional development course. The form is designed to be completed electronically, with all sections being expanded accruing to need. Stage 1 is designed to support staff in identifying their personal agenda for observation, to devise key areas to be used as the basis for the observation itself

12.333 Atmospheric and Ocean Circulations (MIT) 12.333 Atmospheric and Ocean Circulations (MIT)

Description

In this course, we will look at many important aspects of the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean, from length scales of meters to thousands of km and time scales ranging from seconds to years. We will assume familiarity with concepts covered in course 12.003 (Physics of the Fluid Earth). In the early stages of the present course, we will make somewhat greater use of math than did 12.003, but the math we will use is no more than that encountered in elementary electromagnetic field theory, for example. The focus of the course is on the physics of the phenomena which we will discuss.

12.990 Prediction and Predictability in the Atmosphere and Oceans (MIT) 12.990 Prediction and Predictability in the Atmosphere and Oceans (MIT)

Description

Forecasting is the ultimate form of model validation. But even if a perfect model is in hand, imperfect forecasts are likely. This course will cover the factors that limit our ability to produce good forecasts, will show how the quality of forecasts can be gauged a priori (predicting our ability to predict!), and will cover the state of the art in operational atmosphere and ocean forecasting systems.

21A.150 Teaching and Learning: Cross-Cultural Perspectives (MIT) 21A.150 Teaching and Learning: Cross-Cultural Perspectives (MIT)

Description

This course explores the diverse ways that people teach and learn—in different countries, in different disciplines, and in different subcultures. We will discuss how theories of learning can be applied to a variety of hands-on, in-class learning activities. We compare schooling to other forms of knowledge transmission from initiation and apprenticeship to recent innovations in online education such as MOOCs. Students will employ a range of qualitative methods in conducting original research on topics of their choice.

This course is designed to provide an introduction to a variety of empirical research methods used by political scientists. The primary aims of the course are to make you a more sophisticated consumer of diverse empirical research and to allow you to conduct sophisticated independent work in your junior and senior years. This is not a course in data analysis. Rather, it is a course on how to approach political science research.

24.231 Ethics (MIT) 24.231 Ethics (MIT)

Description

This will be a seminar on classic and contemporary work on central topics in ethics. The first third of the course will focus on metaethics: we will examine the meaning of moral claims and ask whether there is any sense in which moral principles are objectively valid. The second third of the course will focus on normative ethics: what makes our lives worth living, what makes our actions right or wrong, and what do we owe to others? The final third of the course will focus on moral character: what is virtue, and how important is it? Can we be held responsible for what we do? When and why?

12.215 Modern Navigation (MIT) 12.215 Modern Navigation (MIT)

Description

The development of the Global Positioning System (GPS) started in the 1960s, and the system became operational in 1992. The system has seen many diverse applications develop in the last few years with the accuracy of positioning ranging from 100 meters (the civilian restricted accuracy requirement) to 1 millimeter (without the need for a security clearance!) In this course we will apply many of basic principles of science and mathematics learnt at MIT to explore the applications and principles of GPS. We also use GPS and other equipment in the class (and outside on Campus) to demonstrate the uses of this system.Technical RequirementsAny number of development tools can be used to compile and run the .f files found on this course site.

24.111 Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics (MIT) 24.111 Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics (MIT)

Description

Quantum mechanics--even in the ordinary, non-relativistic, "particle" formulation that will be the primary focus of this course--has been a staggeringly successful physical theory, surely one of the crowning achievements of 20th century science. It's also rather bizarre--bizarre enough to lead very intelligent and otherwise sensible people to make such claims as that the universe is perpetually splitting into many copies of itself, that conscious minds have the power to make physical systems "jump" in unpredictable ways, that classical logic stands in need of fundamental revision, and much, much more. In this course, we intelligent and sensible people will attempt to take a sober look at these and other alleged implications of quantum mechanics, as well as certain stubborn problems th Quantum mechanics--even in the ordinary, non-relativistic, "particle" formulation that will be the primary focus of this course--has been a staggeringly successful physical theory, surely one of the crowning achievements of 20th century science.

Looking at, describing and identifying objects Looking at, describing and identifying objects

Description

This free course, Looking at, describing and identifying objects, will enable you to practise and develop your skills of observation and description of objects. It will also enable you to interpret objects and work towards writing your own object life cycle. You will also work with, and understand artefact databases. First published on Thu, 10 Dec 2015 as Looking at, describing and identifying objects. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.
