Speech Accommodation In Student Presentations
Author: Alla Zareva
Publisher: Springer Nature
Release Date: 2020-02-07
Pages: 113
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book examines student presentations as a genre of English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and analyses the elements of speech and audience accommodation which make a successful presentation. Offering an antidote to the audience-centric approach to presentation design and delivery promoted by numerous books and manuals on the subject, each chapter tackles an under-researched aspect of student presentations, and presents data-based evidence for practical recommendations within the genre. The language analyses presented in the book are based on a real-life corpus of student presentations, providing clear examples of successful oral academic discourse. This book will be of interest to students of applied linguistics, EAP, TESOL and language education.

Experimental Methods And Instrumentation For Chemical Engineers
Author: Gregory S. Patience
Publisher: Elsevier
Release Date: 2017-09-08
Pages: 424
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Experimental Methods and Instrumentation for Chemical Engineers, Second Edition, touches many aspects of engineering practice, research, and statistics. The principles of unit operations, transport phenomena, and plant design constitute the focus of chemical engineering in the latter years of the curricula. Experimental methods and instrumentation is the precursor to these subjects. This resource integrates these concepts with statistics and uncertainty analysis to define what is necessary to measure and to control, how precisely and how often. The completely updated second edition is divided into several themes related to data: metrology, notions of statistics, and design of experiments. The book then covers basic principles of sensing devices, with a brand new chapter covering force and mass, followed by pressure, temperature, flow rate, and physico-chemical properties. It continues with chapters that describe how to measure gas and liquid concentrations, how to characterize solids, and finally a new chapter on spectroscopic techniques such as UV/Vis, IR, XRD, XPS, NMR, and XAS. Throughout the book, the author integrates the concepts of uncertainty, along with a historical context and practical examples. A problem solutions manual is available from the author upon request. Includes the basics for 1st and 2nd year chemical engineers, providing a foundation for unit operations and transport phenomena Features many practical examples Offers exercises for students at the end of each chapter Includes up-to-date detailed drawings and photos of equipment

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This is a practical handbook on how to communicate science effectively. The first part is an introduction to the principles of science communication and what effective science communication is, why it is important, and how to do it. The principles in these chapters include how effective science communication can change societal paradigms and make one a better scientist. General principles relating to all science communication products include providing synthesis, visualisation, and context, assembling self-contained visual elements such as photos, maps, conceptual diagrams and data, formatting content to define and simplify terms, and eliminating jargon and acronyms. Formatting of these visual elements is also discussed. This introduction is followed by chapters outlining techniques and principles for communicating in different media & desktop publishing (including posters and newsletters), presentations and websites. Techniques in these chapters include image, colour, and font formats, resolution and design tips for different media. Finally, a case study is presented to illustrate how effective science communication has become an integral part of a successful environmental science, monitoring, planning, and implementation program. The book is accompanied by extensive internet resources, including interactive software tutorials for the different software programs commonly used in communication, discussion forums for science communication issues, and links to other websites of interest. This book will be a valuable resource for scientists, working in government, research, management agencies, and education. Although environmental scientists are the primary audience, the principles and techniques discussed are applicable to scientists from all fields.

Effective Writing In Psychology
Author: Bernard C. Beins
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Release Date: 2020-11-24
Pages: 320
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"When you write about psychology or any of the other sciences, you are telling a story about people. Scientists are people, complete with individual personalities, likes and dislikes and ordinary human qualities. The way they are affects what they do and how they do it. As such, "science writing is not so much about science, but about people-human problems and their solutions, curiosity and discovery" (Holland, 2007). In this book, you will learn how to convey your thoughts on the important problems and solutions in psychology. It would be hard to overstate how important it is to write effectively. Writing constitutes one of the "3 Rs" of a basic education: reading, writing and 'rithmetic. In the world of business, success is dependent, in part, on effective writing. For high-level positions, "writing is a 'threshold skill' for both employment and promotion" (College Board, 2004, p. 3). In one survey, many companies noted that writing was important in hiring. One respondent asserted that, "in most cases, writing ability could be your ticket in ... or it could be your ticket out" (College Board, 2004, p. 3). Potential employees who do not write well are unlikely to be hired and, if they are, are unlikely to be promoted"--
