1.223J Transportation Policy, Strategy, and Management (MIT) 1.223J Transportation Policy, Strategy, and Management (MIT)

Description

This class surveys the current concepts, theories, and issues in strategic management of transportation organizations. It provides transportation logistics and engineering systems students with an overview of the operating context, leadership challenges, strategies, and management tools that are used in today's public and private transportation organizations. The following concepts, tools, and issues are presented in both public and private sector cases: alternative models of decision-making, strategic planning (e.g., use of SWOT analysis and scenario development), stakeholder valuation and analysis, government-based regulation and cooperation within the transportation enterprise, disaster communications, systems safety, change management, and the impact of globalization.

11.001J Introduction to Urban Design and Development (MIT) 11.001J Introduction to Urban Design and Development (MIT)

Description

This is a class about how cities, suburbs, and metropolitan areas change.   It is an introductory subject for undergraduates that examines both the evolving structure of the American metropolis and the ways that it  can be designed and developed. Topics range from grand ideas proposed by single individuals to smaller more incremental processes carried out through collaboration by a variety of contending parties.  You will see how cities and suburbs have been changed in the past and how you and others may help change them in the future.

to water? Panel I

Description

Dr Karen Morrow, Swansea Law Department; Dr Bettina Lange, University of Oxford; Dr Mark Shepheard, McGill University give talks for the 1st Panel of the Economic Rights and Regulatory Regimes: Is there still a 'right' to water? conference. PLEASE NOTE: The quality of recording deteriorates significantly after 55 minutes and so has had to be cut short. We apologise for the inconvenience. Legal and environmental experts introduce the fundamental issues in water rights and water law, and discuss the findings of a pilot study entitled 'Rethinking water rights through stewardship in Anglia and the Northeast of England'. Climate change, through more severe weather events, including both droughts and floods, is making water resource management ever more difficult.

Data Protection and Social Networks

Description

Dr. Ian Brown (Senior Research Fellow, Oxford Internet Institute) presents an analysis of the interface between Data Protection regulation and social networking.

Data Protection and Freedom of Expression in the Age of Web 2.0 - What should be the future shape of transnational governance regimes in this area? 2

Description

This contribution by Michael Donohue, Senior Policy Analyst at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), presents a personal perspective on this issue grounded in the OECD's canon. Michael Donoghue argues that the OECD framework has throughout its history emphasised the importance of ensuring the free flow of information. Recent socio-technological developments raise a number of new issues here notably the role of the individuals in putting privacy at risk through the data they create and disseminate. These issues have been under consideration as part of the review of the OCED privacy framework which is now underway. This talk was part of the OxPILS Conference 'The 'Right to be Forgotten' and Beyond' held on 12 June 2012. This Conference was the culminatio Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Control (MIT) Control (MIT)

Description

6.241 examines linear, discrete- and continuous-time, and multi-input-output systems in control and related areas. Least squares and matrix perturbation problems are considered. Topics covered include: state-space models, modes, stability, controllability, observability, transfer function matrices, poles and zeros, minimality, internal stability of interconnected systems, feedback compensators, state feedback, optimal regulation, observers, observer-based compensators, measures of control performance, and robustness issues using singular values of transfer functions. Nonlinear systems are also introduced. 6.241 examines linear, discrete- and continuous-time, and multi-input-output systems in control and related areas.

14.42 Environmental Policy and Economics (MIT) 14.42 Environmental Policy and Economics (MIT)

Description

This course explores the proper role of government in the regulation of the environment. It will help students develop the tools to estimate the costs and benefits of environmental regulations. These tools will be used to evaluate a series of current policy questions, including: Should air and water pollution regulations be tightened or loosened? What are the costs of climate change in the U.S. and abroad? Is there a "Race to the Bottom" in environmental regulation? Students will help design and execute a cutting edge research project that tests whether air pollution causes infant mortality. To gain real world experience, the course will include a guest lecture from a former EPA plant inspector and is tentatively scheduled to include a visit to a local polluting plant.

11.203 Microeconomics for Planners (MIT) 11.203 Microeconomics for Planners (MIT)

Description

Microeconomics for Planners, 11.203, will ground you in basic microeconomics - how markets function, how to think about allocating scarce resources, what profit maximizing behavior means in different kinds of markets, how technology and trade reshapes all of this, etc. Along the way, it will also give you a sense of several of the major economic issues in the presidential campaign. We will consider activities that markets don’t directly capture - the value of an historic preservation district or the costs imposed by pollution - in November and December during Gateway: Planning Economics, 11.202.
