21M.775 Hip Hop (MIT) 21M.775 Hip Hop (MIT)

Description

This course explores the political and aesthetic foundations of hip hop. It traces the musical, corporeal, visual, spoken word, and literary manifestations of hip hop over its thirty-five year presence in the American cultural imaginary. It also investigates specific black cultural practices that have given rise to its various idioms. Hip hop has invigorated the academy, inspiring scholarship rooted in black musical and literary traditions. This course assesses these sharp breaks and flamboyant versionings of hip hop that have occurred within the academy.RealOne™ is a trademark or a registered trademark of RealNetworks, Inc.

6.172 Performance Engineering of Software Systems (MIT) 6.172 Performance Engineering of Software Systems (MIT)

Description

Modern computing platforms provide unprecedented amounts of raw computational power. But significant complexity comes along with this power, to the point that making useful computations exploit even a fraction of the potential of the computing platform is a substantial challenge. Indeed, obtaining good performance requires a comprehensive understanding of all layers of the underlying platform, deep insight into the computation at hand, and the ingenuity and creativity required to obtain an effective mapping of the computation onto the machine. The reward for mastering these sophisticated and challenging topics is the ability to make computations that can process large amount of data orders of magnitude more quickly and efficiently and to obtain results that are unavailable with standard pr Modern computing platforms provide unprecedented amounts of raw computational power.

21L.005 Introduction to Drama (MIT) 21L.005 Introduction to Drama (MIT)

Description

Drama might be described as a game played with something sacred. It tells stories that go right to the heart of what people believe about themselves. And it is enacted in the moment, which means it has an added layer of interpretive mystery and playfulness, or "theatricality." This course will explore theater and theatricality across periods and cultures, through intensive engagement with texts and with our own readings.

15.660 Strategic HR Management (MIT) 15.660 Strategic HR Management (MIT)

Description

This course is about both the design and execution of human resource management strategies. This course has two central themes: (1) How to think systematically and strategically about aspects of managing the organization's human assets, and (2) What really needs to be done to implement these policies and to achieve competitive advantage. It adopts the perspective of a general manager and addresses human resource topics (including reward systems, performance management, high-performance human resource systems, training and development, recruitment, retention, equal employment opportunity laws, work-force diversity, and union-management relationships) from a strategic perspective.

Description

This course deals with advanced design theories and textual analysis. Emphasis is placed on script analysis in general, as well as the investigation of design principles from a designer's perspective. Students also refine technical skills in rendering and presentation, historical research, and analysis. Class sessions include interaction with student/faculty directors and other staff designers. The goal of this course is for students to approach text with a fresh vision and translate that vision into design for performance.

16.885J Aircraft Systems Engineering (MIT) 16.885J Aircraft Systems Engineering (MIT)

Description

Aircraft are complex products comprised of many subsystems which must meet demanding customer and operational lifecycle value requirements. This course adopts a holistic view of the aircraft as a system, covering: basic systems engineering; cost and weight estimation; basic aircraft performance; safety and reliability; lifecycle topics; aircraft subsystems; risk analysis and management; and system realization. Small student teams "retrospectively analyze" an existing aircraft covering: key design drivers and decisions; aircraft attributes and subsystems; and operational experience. Finally, the student teams deliver oral and written versions of the case study.

Introduction to drama Introduction to drama

Description

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2010. This module is designed to provide an introduction to the analysis and performance of drama. It has three main aims: 1) To provide an introduction to the analysis of drama; 2) To give a taste of the wide range of performance convention in history, from Ancient Greek tragedy to nineteenth-century naturalism; 3) To foreground drama as a performance medium rather than a form of literature. At Nottingham, we approach drama as a performance medium: an event within a specific time, space and locale, in which real people and objects are presented to other people in real, shared space. It is always a social event, so we learn to think about the people who do the performing, the p This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file.

16.885J Aircraft Systems Engineering (MIT) 16.885J Aircraft Systems Engineering (MIT)

Description

Aircraft are complex products comprised of many subsystems which must meet demanding customer and operational lifecycle value requirements. This course adopts a holistic view of the aircraft as a system, covering: basic systems engineering; cost and weight estimation; basic aircraft performance; safety and reliability; lifecycle topics; aircraft subsystems; risk analysis and management; and system realization. Small student teams "retrospectively analyze" an existing aircraft covering: key design drivers and decisions; aircraft attributes and subsystems; and operational experience. Finally, the student teams deliver oral and written versions of the case study.

The Individual at Work: Introduction

Description

This module is a very diverse one, covering a wide range of issues. There is, however, one underlying theme. All the units have a strong focus on the links between people’s experiences of work and the impact that it has on them (both positive and negative) as individuals.

The Individual at Work Unit 5: Performance Appraisal

Description

After studying this unit, students should be able to: appreciate the background to the measurement of performance in organisations; describe the types of performance appraisal tools and processes used in organisations; discuss organisational issues in the measurement of performance and the feedback of performance data; identify and discuss the various influences on different stakeholders in the performance appraisal process; highlight some of the difficulties involved in collecting and using performance data in organisations, and appreciate how occupational psychologists can help organisations to improve these processes and review current trends in professional practice and contemporary research.
