Transcript: Once you have established the possibilities for new collaborative research programs, you need to understand how to best fund it. Whether it be to simply place a student into industry for a few months, or engage in complex, multiyear collaborations, TTBE will help you secure the appropriate funding.-> matching opportunities (gen info), short paragraph on each funding opportunity and link - Mitacs, CRD, OCE Your research has led to results that society can benefit from. TTBE can help you identify the options, including protecting the intellectual property, transferring it to your partner, or help you start a company to commercialise it. Resources For Researchers 1 Define your partnership Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA's) 2 Fund your partnership Build and Define your Partnership . You have defined your project, determined how it could be funded, and now you are ready to go ahead with your partner. TTBE will help you negotiate the terms of a contract that best meets the needs of you and your partner ->CRA , FTL, RE Form, each section has a summary of key considerations, for instance terms on CRA 4 Innovation, technology transfer, and entrepreneurship 3 Build and define your partnership Technology Partnerships NDA's let you exchange confidential information with prospective partners. Once you have established common interests with a party outside of your lab group, you can work out the details under an NDA. To set up an NDA, you must send the following information to (NOTE – may set up as a form) 1. Your name, position, and Department 2. The name and address of the company or institution you wish to talk to. 3. The name, email, and phone number of the contact person at the other company or institution. 4. A one or two sentence description of the information to be exchanged that you and your potential partner with to keep confidential. Once TTBE receives the above information, it will generate an NDA and send it out for review and signature. TTBE will also review the other party’s NDA when appropriate. TTBE has a service standard of 24 hours on the processing of all requests for NDA’s. Whether you are starting discussions with industry, or sharing your results with a new academic, TTBE can prove you with a number of tools to protect your research program, while building your research network When you are considering protecting your research through patents, and exploring your options for commercializing it, as a member of the University of Ottawa community, TTBE will work with you to find the best option for the situation. You can start the invention review process by filling out the Invention Disclosure Form, and emailing it to The goal of the invention review is to work with you to develop a technology transfer plan that is appropriate for the technology, the inventors of the technology, and the market that it will be transferred to. TTBE will explore the following with you: 1. The patentability of the invention 2. The market opportunity for your invention 3. The potential partners for your invention, including industry partners, and public and private sector funding partners. 4. Your publication plans, and other academic activities related to the invention 5. Your motivation and commitment to transferring the technology to a company or start-up. Once you have submitted an invention disclosure form, an officer will contact you within one week to set up a meeting to discuss the opportunity.

Topic: Managing Knowledge Management in Organisations Topic coordinator: Michael Bell Teacher: Melinda Thambi Presented by: Thongsy Xuamolee School of Education, Flinders University. Academic Year 2015 Explicit Knowledge Tacit knowledge has three key features: 1." It typically is acquires implicitly; that is by experience or observation. 2. It tends to be procedure knowledge that guides behaviour. i.e. Knowing how rather than knowing what. 3. It is knowledge that has a direct practical outcomes for the person acquiring it". It can not be described in "context-independent terms" as it is in individuals' mental(Jennex, 2007, p, 287). It also hepls researchers to design new explicit knowledge in the field in the right direction. (Dubberly & Evenson, 2011) There is no certain definition of KM. Thus, Each organisation needs to define KM in terms of its own objectives and concept analysis to achieve sustainable development effectively (Bergeron, 2003). Documents/information Internationalisation (Explicit to Tacit) Combination (Explicit to Explicit) SECI For Researchers 95% The model describes knowledge creation as a "spiral process of interactions between Tacit knowledge and Explicit knowledge" (Nonaka and Konno, 1998). In this stage, tacit knowledge is transferred into explicit knowledge to make it understandable and interpretable. It is done through recording information, writing notes, brainstorming. A learning environment is encouraged to create in this stage. Otherwise, knowledge can be lost if employees leave. In 1994, SECI Model was introduced by NONAKA and his colleagues in order to help organisations to define knowledge as their expectation and visions. Basically, KM is "the process of applying a systematic approach to the capture, structure, management, and dissemination of knowledge throughout an organisation in order to work faster, reuse best practices, and reduce costly rework from project to project" (Monaka & Takeuchi, 1995; Pasternack & Visco, 1998; Pfeiffer & Sutton, 1999; Ruggles & Holtshouse, 1999 as cited in Dalkir, 2005, p, 18). Socialization (Tacit to Tacit) KM is very important to support the organisation and the decision making process. Thus, the leaders held a meeting for the employees to share experiences to create new knowledge. However, after each meeting, they do not record any information into books, computers or documents. Thus, there is no new explicit knowledge that is created in my organisation. I personally hope to apply this concept to create new knowledge in my organisation after I go back. In my organisation, 5% Why is SECI model significant for researchers to apply to create knowledge? Tacit Knowledge Knowledge management (KM) In this stage, the new explicit knowledge needs to be shared, practiced and repeated among employees through action and reflection in order to create know how It is the stage where new explicit knowledge is analysed and organised into a broader concept of systems such as databases, books, training. The SECI model Devices/tools In this stage, employees convert new tacit knowledge through social interaction and shared experiences. The organisation should significantly has open space - no physical barriers for the employees. However, Gourly (2004) points out that the stages of "Combination" and "Internalisation" are not clearly described, and there is no convincing example for researchers. Thus, it still needs another model - "Ba" to guide them to create new knowledge (pp, 383). Master of Education, Educational Research - Evaluation and Assessment It helps researchers to create new knowledge that fits the objectives and vision of the organisation. (Dubberly & Evenson, 2011)

PowerPoint Game Templates

Transcript: Example of a Jeopardy Template By: Laken Feeser and Rachel Chapman When creating without a template... Example of a Deal or No Deal Template PowerPoint Game Templates There are free templates for games such as jeopardy, wheel of fortune, and cash cab that can be downloaded online. However, some templates may cost more money depending on the complexity of the game. Classroom Games that Make Test Review and Memorization Fun! (n.d.). Retrieved February 17, 2017, from Fisher, S. (n.d.). Customize a PowerPoint Game for Your Class with These Free Templates. Retrieved February 17, 2017, from 1. Users will begin with a lot of slides all with the same basic graphic design. 2. The, decide and create a series of questions that are to be asked during the game. 3. By hyper linking certain answers to different slides, the game jumps from slide to slide while playing the game. 4. This kind of setup is normally seen as a simple quiz show game. Example of a Wheel of Fortune Template Games can be made in order to make a fun and easy way to learn. Popular game templates include: Family Feud Millionaire Jeopardy and other quiz shows. Quick video on template "Millionaire" PowerPoint Games Some games are easier to make compared to others If users are unsure whether or not downloading certain templates is safe, you can actually make your own game by just simply using PowerPoint. add logo here References Example of a Family Feud Template PowerPoint Games are a great way to introduce new concepts and ideas You can create a fun, competitive atmosphere with the use of different templates You can change and rearrange information to correlate with the topic or idea being discussed. Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
