The Core Of Social Network Modeling: Industrial Engineering., Shannon C. Roberts, Chaitra Gopalappa, Nazanin Nazanin Jan 2019

The Core Of Social Network Modeling: Industrial Engineering., Shannon C. Roberts, Chaitra Gopalappa, Nazanin Nazanin

Science and Engineering Saturday Seminars

Networks are abound in our everyday lives, from disaster response networks to cellular networks to social networks. In this workshop, we will introduce the different types of networks and how Industrial Engineering is used to model these networks. Next, we will describe current social network modeling research done at UMass. Finally, we will delve into hands-on activities that include social network analysis, such as the clustering of people into groups, and modeling of the spread of ideas in a social network, such as how tweets spread on Twitter.

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson May 2017

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson

Senior Honors Projects

Bilingualism is the ability to speak more than one language fluently. People of all ages may aspire to learn a second or third language in order to fulfill both personal goals and communicate with a variety of people in different contexts. Irrespective of one’s walk of life or socioeconomic status, being bilingual is a valuable skill. Although English is the language of power in the United States, there are hundreds of other languages spoken in this country.

There are a number of different ways in which children can become bilingual. For example, they may enter the school system speaking ...

Resource To Develop Medical Students Into Peer Mentors, Sean Meredith, Larrie Greenberg, Benjamin Blatt Feb 2014

Resource To Develop Medical Students Into Peer Mentors, Sean Meredith, Larrie Greenberg, Benjamin Blatt

E-Learning Modules

The primary goal of the Peer Mentoring Guide is to develop fourth year medical students (MS-4s) into mentors for first year medical students (MS-1s). The purpose of this resource is to provide others who want to develop a peer mentoring program as part of an advanced students-as-teachers curriculum.

The George Washington University was one of the first schools to have a program to prepare medical students for their teaching role as residents and practicing physicians, which was called TALKS (Teaching and Learning Knowledge and Skills). We recently recognized that some participants were interested in going beyond the boundaries of the ...

Integrating Spanish Language & Culture Into A Dental Hygiene Curriculum, Katya M. Hall, Lisa J. Rowley Jan 2010

Integrating Spanish Language & Culture Into A Dental Hygiene Curriculum, Katya M. Hall, Lisa J. Rowley

Projects and Scholarship

The Dental Hygiene Program at Pacific University is located in a community with a high percentage of low-income people of Hispanic origin. The majority of this population speak only Spanish and most have never received dental treatment due to language, cultural and economic barriers. Spanish language & culture have been integrated throughout Pacific’s dental hygiene curriculum to help students communicate more effectively with these patients and enhance student understanding of the unique needs of this underserved population.


Searching For Binding Partners For The Novel Phkg1 Variant, Phkγ 181, Kishore Polireddy Apr 2008

Searching For Binding Partners For The Novel Phkg1 Variant, Phkγ 181, Kishore Polireddy

Student Research Conference Select Presentations

Phopshorylase kinase (PhK) is a hexadecameric holoenzyme made up of four different subunits in the arrangement (αβγδ)4 and has total molecular mass of 1.3MDa. Alpha and β are regulatory subunits, γ is catalytic, and δ is an intrinsic molecule of calmodulin. PhK is a serine threonine kinase with glycogenolytic regulatory functions. Our lab has recently discovered that the γ subunit can be alternatively processed to produce a truncated form of 181 residues (γ-181). This variant of γ contains a phosphorylation site for PK-C, and its activity is influenced by this phosphorylation. We are using a LexA based yeast ...

Teaching Outbreak Preparedness In The Emergency Medicine Clerkship: An Innovative Approach, Larissa S. May Mar 2007

Teaching Outbreak Preparedness In The Emergency Medicine Clerkship: An Innovative Approach, Larissa S. May

E-Learning Modules

Clinicians should be competent at contagious disease outbreak detection and management. Given the threat of emerging infectious diseases and biowarfare, there is a need to develop instructional methods on these topics. We have created a case-based exercise addressing sentinel case recognition, reporting, and containment. The workshop, conducted for medical students during their emergency medicine clerkship, incorporates the core competencies of systems-based practice, practice-based learning, and patient care. The workshop is held in a hospital conference room with the availability of internet, telephone, and other resources, simulating "real life." A hypothetical case of Ebola presenting to an emergency department is outlined ...


Using Digitized Primary Sources From The Library Of Congress's American Memory Collection To Enliven Nursing Issues And History Curriculum (Multimedia Presentation), Catherine Tymkow, Shirley Comer, Paul M. Blobaum Feb 2007

Using Digitized Primary Sources From The Library Of Congress's American Memory Collection To Enliven Nursing Issues And History Curriculum (Multimedia Presentation), Catherine Tymkow, Shirley Comer, Paul M. Blobaum

Faculty Research and Creative Activity

Background: A cohort of faculty from Governors State University were chosen to receive technology training and develop web based education projects incorporating digitized primary sources from the Library of Congress' American Memory Collection in May 2006. Using a constructivist framework, three web-enhanced projects, which are works in progress, were developed to illumine and enliven nursing's history for today's learner. These projects utilize digitized primary sources, which are defined as documents or other sources of information created at or near the time being studied. Use of primary sources is not common in nursing and represents a new approach to ...
