Team Teaching at the College Level describes a college-level team teaching program which affords unusual opportunities for developing an educational environment that fosters productive personal relationships between and among college students and faculty. The book describes the nature and scope of selected team teaching programs; the manner in which such programs can be administered; the potential impact of team teaching on a developing curriculum; the role of faculty and students who constitute the teaching-learning team; the particular housing requirements of team teaching programs; and finally, the limitations and future prospects of this emerging concept. In the following chapters frequent reference is made to the philosophy, program, and methodology of Boston University's College of Basic Studies, where a team system was first developed in 1949 and where an entire collegiate two-year program of studies functions on a team teaching plan. This College's extensive experience with team teaching has made possible refinements which may interest those seeking to broaden their understanding of the potential role and function of team teaching in higher education. * Rich in case studies, examples, and in-chapter elements that focus on the challenges of launching and operating a technology venture * In-depth examination of intellectual property development, valuation, deal structuring, and equity preservation, issues of most relevance to technology start-ups * Extensive discussion of technology management and continuous innovation as a competitive advantage * Addresses the issue of leading, managing, motivating, and compensating technical workers * More time on the fundamentals of marketing and selling, as these are elements of entrepreneurshipcommonly most neglected by engineers and scientists

Child Without Tomorrow discusses the observations and treatments made with seriously emotionally disturbed children. The book relates the development of a specific group therapy program and shows that children can still be taught complex and socially adaptive behavior despite their situations. It is also demonstrated that non-professionals can be trained as operative child-behavior therapists and parents are the best candidate as therapists of their children. The text defines the term Autism and briefly explains its context. It was suggested that the most useful type of therapy is observed current behavior. Stimulus control, respondent conditioning, and contingency management are important tools of the therapy. A chapter of the book is devoted on control of aggressive and tantrum behavior. Such behaviors were defined and examples were given. To control these behaviors, a process called extinction was exercised. Such process weakens a response through its non-reinforced repetition. The book will provide useful information to psychologists, therapists, parents with autistic children, students and researcher in the field of psychology.
