EcoMUVE: Virtual learning environment - 0 views

  •  
    An understanding of complex causality is a necessary foundational skill for advanced science and mathematics. Ecosystems science, an important strand of the life science content standards, requires an understanding of complex causal relationships. However, even after instruction, students often retain inaccurate interpretations about ecosystems' structural patterns and systemic causality. To address this issue, we are developing a Multi-User Virtual Environment (MUVE)-based ecosystems science curriculum called EcoMUVE, based on middle school life science standards.

UW CIP - International Connections Report - Current - 0 views

  • The environment on campus is already international in many respects, due to a multicultural and diverse student body with many ethnic and international students' clubs. Exchange programs are a tremendous learning experience for students and interest in them is growing every year, as evidenced by the number of active student exchange agreements and students participating. Faculty coordinators work on a volunteer basis, and the success of the exchange programs is due in large part to their enthusiasm and dedication. Some exchange agreements provide possibilities for work terms abroad, and these are very attractive to students as a way of broadening their international experience and providing potential employment opportunities upon graduation. In spite of resource limitations, the Department of Co-operative Education and Career Services has been quite successful in finding international placements for students. Waterloo has a strong National Alumni Council and alumni in approximately 100 countries around the world, many in positions of influence.

  • Since most work environments are very different from academe, you will probably look to a mentor for an explanation of the mores of your new office
  • Mentors have much to gain from these relationships as well. A senior staff member often learns valuable insights into the organization through the eyes of a talented newcomer like yourself.
