What motivates student learning? Can instructors influence the motivation levels of their students?

Some theorists believe that motivation for learning is impacted by two factors:

1. Student beliefs about their ability to succeed in the learning task (expectancy)

An Automated Hand-held RFLP-CE Diagnosis Device for point-of-care Applications

Abstract

Micro-Total-Analysis-System (uTAS) for genetic diagnosis has a great potential to revolutionize the future of health care. However the lack of uTAS, which is fully integrated, mass-producible and application oriented, has delayed uTAS development in real life point-of-care applications.

Topic

Coding for Real-Time Streaming Communication

Abstract

A growing number of multimedia applications require transmission of a stream of source packets under strict delay constraints. It is well known that classical models in information theory do not provide useful guidelines for such systems. In this talk I will show how certain deterministic approximations to statistical channel models can lead to new insights into real-time streaming communications.
