The use of a biomonitoring system in acquiring baseline water quality data for a metal mining operation in northeastern New Brunswick by Tim A Smith( Book )
8 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 libraries worldwide
A study was undertaken during the summer of 1988 to determine the usefulness of a simple, cost-effective biomonitoring system for acquiring baseline water quality data for the receiving waters of a reopening base metal mining and milling operation in northeastern New Brunswick. The freshwater bivalves Margaritifera margaritifera and Elliptio complanata, and the leech Nephelopsis obscura were used as biomonitoring tools for exposure periods from between 5-70 days at several locations downstream of the mine site. In addition to the application of freshwater molluscs and leeches as biomonitoring agents, epilithic algal samples collected at three locations downstream of the mine were tested. Caged fingerling brook trout were also deployed and observed over a 10-day period to delineate a zone of acute toxicity

The development of pre-vocational education literacy courses for use with computer-assisted instruction of disadvantaged youths and adults : [final report] by Edward K Hankin( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this project was to develop computer assisted courses in arithmetic and reading for disadvantaged adults and youths to serve as prerequisites to entering vocational training. Because of budgetary cuts, the project was terminated before its completion. Lessons in counting, addition, and subtraction were written and tested; however, lessons in division and multiplication were initiated but not completed. A lesson includes a pre-test to determine if a student needs instruction, two instructional units of differing focus, and a post-test to evaluate the effects of instruction. The pilot tests showed the arithmetic lessons to be effective. All of the grade two (24 lessons) of the reading program with slides was completed and entered into the computer. Lessons for grade three were ready for entry and lessons for grades four, five, and six had been written but slides had not been developed. Audio tapes are optional. The findings showed that, in general, computer assisted instruction can be used in pre-vocational literacy training for disadvantaged youths and adults; however, it was recommended that further research be conducted to determine the effectiveness of this technique.

Preparing Students for Their Initial Patient Encounter--an Innovative Approach by Tim A Smith( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A new University of Kentucky course, developed to prepare dental students for the initial encounter and treatment of patients, is described. Offered during the second year of dental school, the course focus is on the interpersonal interactions that occur during the initial treatment of patients. The course consists of three two-hour seminars taught by two instructors to 15 students who are assigned readings on communication, listening to feelings, and talking to patients. Students also attend lectures on the personality characteristics of dentists, variables associated with demand for dental services, patient motivation, the practitioner/patient relationship and patient rights and responsibilities. The clinical situation is recreated through use of audio and video tapes that demonstrate phone calls, waiting room behavior, problems in escorting patients to the dental chair, and establishing and maintaining patient rapport. Students role play to practice strategies for handling the stress involved with the patient/doctor situation. Favorable feedback from students is reported. Instructors' methodology is applicable to clinical faculty from other departments. A seminar outline is provided. (Author/LC)
Technical writing for English speaking users in the United States and India by Tim A Smith( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This study investigates language comprehension issues among English speaking insurance processors in India. Subject matter experts and trainers were interviewed to identify language and cultural misunderstandings that caused processing delays and required substantial changes to process instructions or changes in communication approach. Misunderstandings identified in the interviews were categorized according to their impact on completeness of steps, completeness of process, and word choice. Findings showed that typical United States technical writing practices were not sufficient to provide clear documentation to the India processors. India processors preferred process instructions that include all detailed sub-processes involved in a step, and that included every possible outcome. Recommendations to improve process instructions for India processors include: add all sub-step information into steps, and include all common outcomes in process instructions, and provide paths to a follow-up system for rare processes to be completed later. Processing steps should be written as clearly as possible to help users avoid making incorrect decisions due to confusion. This involves removing or reducing "and/or" wording within processes. Writers should also avoid using phrasal verbs and slang from processing instructions because they are more difficult for global English speakers to understand

Individualized Study by Technology (Ist) for Alaska, a Model for the Future? by Tim A Smith( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An innovative approach to enhance high school instruction in Alaska is summarized in this paper describing ist (Individualized Study by Technology), a program which permits small, isolated rural schools to provide a more complete high school curriculum, reduce teacher workloads, and allow students to work at their own pace. The program goal of developing whole courses to be taught in rural Alaskan high schools is discussed, as well as the media model used to design the programs. Illustrations are given for the individualized, multimedia, instructional model, which includes the teacher, traditional texts, and printed materials; computer-assisted/managed instruction; and audiotape cassettes. The teacher's role in ist teacher training is then explained. Evidence of IST's effectiveness as indicated by teacher and student attitudes and by student learning is analyzed, based on an evaluation of the 1980-81 pilot testing of the Alaska history, English, developmental reading, and general math courses. Cost analyses are also provided. The summary addresses problems faced by course developers and the three-part solution which evolved to meet these problems. Conclusions and implications are discussed, and six references are listed. (Lmm)
