Migration case studies | S-cool, the revision website

Title:Transmigration in Indonesia. Source:Over populated islands of Indonesia, for example, Java. Destination:Under populated outer Islands such as Maluku. Reasons: Government incentives to ease population pressures on Islands such as Java. Possibility of spreading development to more remote Islands. Consequences for area they arrive in: In total over three million people have moved so this obviously puts great pressures on the areas they arrive in. Thousand of acres of rainforest have been cleared and this has led to soil erosion. Consequently, a large quantity of the land soon becomes unsuitable for farming.

Teaching Materials Using Case Studies

Teaching and learning styles are, by their very nature, changing and in recent years there has been a noticeable move from lecture-based activities towards more student-centred activities. Case studies are an increasingly popular form of teaching and have an important role in developing skills and knowledge in students. This guide explores the use of the case-based approach to support engineering education and, more specifically, their role in Materials Science related Higher Education courses.

Carling Black Label: Be the Coach Case Study -

Objectives The aim of the digital component of the Be the Coach campaign was to take the concept beyond the process of voting. Be the Coach was for the fans; we needed to give it to them and let them run with it. Beyond The Field The voting system was in place, but the question was: where to from here? What if I want to view how my team takes shape on the field? How do I know if my team selections are having an effect? What the campaign needed was ways for users to keep up with the campaign, share their selections, debate their selections, voice their support, engage with fellow ‘coaches’ and totally immerse themselves in the Carling Black Label Cup.

The Labour Export Policy: A Case Study of the Philippines

Migration has become an eye-catching issue in the era of globalization. According to the World Migration Report 2010 (IOM, 2010), the scale of international replacement is astonishing. The number of international migrants, estimated to be 214 million in 2010, is at a record high; they account for 3. 1 percent of the world’s population. The pace of the enlargement of migration has increased dramatically during the last few decades. It is reckoned that if the rate of migration continues at the same pace as during the last two decades, the total sum of international migrants will hit as many as 405 million by 2050.
