Description de ce cours : Chaque région du monde présente des facteurs de vulnérabilité au changement climatique mais est néanmoins en mesure d’atténuer les effets de ce phénomène et de renforcer sa résilience. En ratifiant l’Accord de Paris, la communauté internationale a manifesté sa volonté d’agir. En effet, sans action climatique concertée, les progrès accomplis pendant des décennies en matière de développement seront menacés : nous nous trouvons donc à un moment décisif. Ce cours présente les données scientifiques les plus récentes sur la question, explique les différentes répercussions ressenties au plan régional, décrit les stratégies d’action climatique et mentionne différents types d’action qui s’offrent à vous.

Le cours « Bassions la Chaleur: de la science à l’action climatique » se déroule sur quatre semaines. Les deux premières seront consacrées à un tour d’horizon complet des données scientifiques disponibles sur le changement climatique, puis à la description des effets du réchauffement propres à certaines régions au XXIe siècle. Les deux dernières semaines seront axées sur les stratégies d’action que divers pays et régions mettent en œuvre pour relever le défi climatique ainsi que sur la manière dont chacun d’entre nous peut agir.

Format du cours

Ce MOOC est conçu selon un rythme hebdomadaire : il prévoit les ressources, les activités et les exercices qui vous sont destinés durant chacune des quatre semaines du cours. Chaque semaine, divers matériels pédagogiques seront mis à votre disposition :

  • Des présentations vidéo interactives effectuées par de grands spécialistes et praticiens des questions climatiques
  • Diverses ressources : activités interactives fondamentales ou optionnelles (approfondies) et distrayantes sur le thème de la semaine
  • Des interrogations destinées à évaluer vos connaissances, compléter l’enseignement donné et fournir une rétroaction immédiate
  • Des tâches qui affineront votre capacité d’analyse, de réflexion et de communication
  • Des forums de discussion et des échanges sur les médias sociaux pour collaborer avec d’autres habitants de la planète, tout en enrichissant l’interaction entre les participants

Explore how to create a sustainable future by moving away from dependence on fossil resources to biomass resources for the production of food, chemicals and energy-carriers.

We’ll focus on five topics in this course:

1. Introduction to Biobased Sciences

Learn about the products that can be derived from biomass and the processes used to do so, compared to current fossil based products and processes.

2. Biorefinery

Biorefinery deals with the challenge of extracting valuable biomass components and converting them to final products. To achieve this you first need knowledge of the different types of biomass, the molecules present and their chemical characteristics. Biorefinery is all about efficient processing. Aspects of processing include the harvesting, pre-treatments, conversion and separation technologies.

3. Consumer Behaviour

Understand the challenges of moving towards a biobased economy and gaining consumer acceptance. How do consumers evaluate products? And how is their perception influenced by communication strategies?  Understanding the basics of consumer science will help you to implement a consumer view when developing a product. 

4. Biomass production

A biobased economy runs on biomass. It is therefore important to understand which factors play a major role in crop growth, yield formation and quality. In this module you’ll learn to identify design criteria for the production of biobased crops on both a crop and farm level.

5. Achieving Sustainability

Delve into the true meaning of sustainability and how sustainability issues are linked to human activities. Biobased products are not always as sustainable as it seems on first glance. You’ll learn that an understanding of the degree of sustainability requires a thorough analysis of a variety of factors and constituents.

Have you ever wondered why humans walk on two legs rather than four? In this course, we will explore how science investigates this unusual form of locomotion. We will start our investigation by looking at the mechanics of upright walking in humans and comparing that to bipedal locomotion in large birds, bears, and apes.

We will journey back millions of years into the human fossil record in an effort to understand how and why upright walking evolved. Around our first birthday, each of us learned how to walk, but how does this happen? With bipedalism came costly trade-offs as well-- we’ll examine these aches and pains as byproducts of our evolutionary history.

This course will take an intentionally interdisciplinary approach to studying how and why humans move bipedally. You will be exposed to anthropology, biomechanics, anatomy, evolution and paleontology to explore something deeply human: upright walking.

This course was developed in collaboration with SmithsonianX (National Musuem of Natural History and the National Zoological Park).

Around the world, major challenges of our time such as population growth and climate change are being addressed in cities. Here, citizens play an important role amidst governments, companies, NGOs and researchers in creating social, technological and political innovations for achieving sustainability.

Citizens can be co-creators of sustainable cities when they engage in city politics or in the design of the urban environment and its technologies and infrastructure. In addition, citizens influence and are influenced by the technologies and systems that they use every day. Sustainability is thus a result of the interplay between technology, policy and people’s daily lives. Understanding this interplay is essential for creating sustainable cities. In this MOOC, we zoom in on Amsterdam, Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, Nairobi, Kampala and Suzhou as living labs for exploring the dynamics of co-creation for sustainable cities worldwide. We will address topics such as participative democracy and legitimacy, ICTs and big data, infrastructure and technology, and SMART technologies in daily life.

This global scope will be used to illustrate why specific forms of co-creation are preferred in specific urban contexts. Moreover, we will investigate and compare these cities on three themes that have a vast effect on city life: 

  • Water and waste
  • Energy, air, food and mobility
  • Green spaces and food

This MOOC will teach you about the dynamics of co-creation and the key principles of citizens interacting with service providing companies, technology and infrastructure developers, policy makers and researchers. You will gain an understanding of major types of co-creation and their interdependency with their socio-technical and political contexts. You will become equipped to indicate how you can use co-creation to develop innovative technologies, policy arrangements or social practices for a sustainable city in your own community. You will demonstrate this by developing an action plan, research proposal or project idea.

Basic knowledge of sustainability in urban settings, urban environmental technology and urban management is assumed.

This course forms a part of two educational programme of the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) - AMS Vital and Circular city research themes. It is developed by Wageningen UR and TU Delft, two of the founding universities of AMS Institute, and in cooperation with Tsinghua University.

La Codificación de Audio (también conocida como compresión de audio) es una representación digital de las señales de sonido para ser almacenadas o transmitidas por cualquier medio digital. En este proceso se busca siempre ocupar el mínimo número de bits posible para poder transmitirla por canales limitados en velocidad o bien poder almacenar muchos sonidos o música en el menor espacio posible. Todo ello se debe realizar manteniendo una calidad de sonido cada vez más exigente y, en los últimos años, permitiendo sistemas más avanzados que el estéreo que proporcionan sonido espacial. En este curso veremos los estándares más conocidos, como el MP3, así como otros formatos superiores aparecidos en los últimos años.

Unidades:

  • Sección 1: Digitalización y compresión de audio, ¿cómo afecta a nuestra percepción?
  • Sección 2: Escalas auditivas y tipos de compresión
  • Sección 3: Estándares MPEG de compresión de audio
  • Sección 4: Codificadores avanzados de audio

This writing course introduces students to discourse, research, and research writing for the purpose of proposing solutions to problems. Rather than learning about these subjects in the abstract, students will learn by engaging with local problems and issues in their communities. To achieve this, students will learn how to:

  • Develop an actionable central research question
  • Propose a research project
  • Conduct primary and secondary research
  • Design an action-oriented research project for web publication

Proposing solutions to local problems requires grounding research in the local context and communicating clear solutions and calls for action that are understandable and relevant to local audiences.

Students will learn how to conduct research, write about a particular issue, and construct a call to action based upon their research.

This is a unique English course because students will directly learn about the power and pleasures of writing. By engaging with local questions and problems, students will have the opportunity to enter into important discussions and possibly create meaningful changes in the lives of those around them. Students will create a digital portfolio that enables them to publish and share their research and writing.

This course will interest individuals who want to learn more about how to create change in the world through research and writing. This class will also interest those who want to learn how to compose in a digital environment.

If you wish to earn university credit for the course, we will ask you to complete a portfolio in which you demonstrate what you have learned. Specifically, you will address what you have learned in the course and provide evidence that you have acquired the skills and knowledge taught during the course. Credit earned will count as ASU’s First-Year Composition course. However, it is strongly encouraged that you consult with your institution of choice to determine how these credits will be applied to their degree requirements prior to transferring the credit.
