During the year 2000, teams of field researchers from the Lab at Brown traveled to seven high schools in New England noted for their attempts to personalize learning for high school students. The research teams wanted to assemble a definition of ''personalized learning'' based on events occurring in a regular school day, aiming to assemble those events into(More)
 This paper examines the challenges and possible strategies for implementing continuous-quality-improvement processes in engineering service courses. We describe the process we have been using to review and revise course learning objectives through interactions with various constituent groups. We also describe our outcomes assessment process and the tools(More)
Engineering science core courses represent the initial exposure to engineering for many students and form the foundation for degree requirements for each undergraduate engineering major. This paper examines our strategies, progress and findings related to an important subset of the engineering science core courses, namely, engineering service courses. We(More)
A new human plasmacytoma line (Karpas 707) was established from the cells of the bone-marrow and peripheral blood of a patient with Bence-Jones-positive multiple myeloma. The cells of this line resembled the patient's malignant cells and fresh myeloma cells from nine other patients in being Epstein-Barr viral nuclear antigen negative. They looked like(More)
