The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of teaching strategies that engage college students who experienced childhood difficulties in learning mathematics in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in terms of the nature of the classroom learning environment and students satisfaction. In addition, I investigated how the use of personally-relevant and concrete activities changed the learning environment in ways that were perceived to be beneficial by adults who had experienced failure.A sample of 84 students from eight classes in the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) were involved. The learning environment was assessed as a pretest and posttest with a modified Arabic version of four scales (Involvement, Task Orientation, Personalisation and Individualisation) from the College and University Classroom Environment Inventory (CUCEI). Satisfaction was measured with a modified Arabic version of this scale from the CUCEI. Moreover, five case studies of students were conducted to assess the learning environment through observations, semi-structured interviews and focus-group interviews and to link qualitative information with the constructs assessed by the CUCEI.
Using the Gap Analysis problem-solving framework (Clark & Estes, 2008), this project examined engineering students at Abu Dhabi Colleges at Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in the United Arab Emirates. The primary purpose of this project was to identify the knowledge, motivation and organizational causes that prevent graduates from the HCT bachelor of applied science in engineering program from pursuing a masters degree in engineering in order to become faculty. Mixed methods were used to collect survey data from 493 participants and interview data for twenty participants to identify and validate the knowledge and skills, motivation, and organizational solutions that may contribute to the HCT s Emiratisation goal. Findings showed that although students lack factual knowledge, students do not lack motivation in pursuing a master degree. However, the study confirmed their lack of interest in working in an educational environment or pursuing a career as faculty, and it confirmed organizational gap in HCT management. Based on the findings, solutions are offered to address these challenges.
Recombinant technology has crucial impact in therapy development. In microbial environment, Pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus produces alpha hemolysin protein. This protein is used as anticancer protein. alpha hemolysin gene was isolated from pathogenic S. aureus that was isolated from blood samples of patients (chrildren). This recombinant hia gene was produced alpha hemolysin protein by using competent E. coli as a host. The recombinant - toxin protein was used as anticancer agent.In this study that high concentration of -toxin (500 mil/ ml) was effected on the cell viability of four cells line ( HepG-2, HCT-116, MCF-7, A-549). The cell viability of cell lines were represented 31.69% in HepG-2, 36.27% in HCT-116, 78.95% in MCF-7, 67.28% in A-549. From our results, Alpha hemolysin protein had high inhibitory activity against HepG-2 and HCT-116, and had weak inhibitory activity against MCF-7 and A-549. Inconclusion,The production of recombinant - toxin was very simple process, low cost, high efficiency, non-toxic, high yield and no side effect.
