Tervetuloa tutustumaan työelämäpedagogiikan moninaisuuteen! Tämä kirja on toteutettu opetus- ja kulttuuriministeriön tukeman Työelämäpedagogiikka korkeakoulutuksessa (Työpeda) -hankkeen lopputuotoksena. Tarkoituksena on jakaa hankkeessa pilotoituja toimintatapoja, välineitä ja malleja kaikkien korkeakoulujen käyttöön. Työelämäpedagogiikka on määrit...
Chapter
johdantoteksti Työelämäpedagogiikka korkeakoulutuksessa -hankkeen aikana eri korkeakouluissa toteutettujen TKI-toimintaa ja koulutusta integroivien työelämäpedagogiikan uudistamiskokeilujen esittelyihin.
Article
Full-text available
While there is abundant research looking at the impact of mentoring in academic environments, inquiry into and the construction of knowledge from the experience of mentors has remained limited. This is mainly because of the methodological difficulty that is inherent in the study of mentoring experiences. The authors address this difficulty by using...

Carbon nanomaterial applications are expected for consumer use within next decade. Risk management methods are reviewed by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Safe Work Australia, Health and Safety Executive, and additionally Dupont’s and Environmental Defense Fund’s Nano Risk Framework. A new risk management method for handling...

Purpose The Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) method was launched by the European Commission to harmonize the measurement of the product’s environmental performance. The PEF aims to increase the supply of green products in EU markets by lowering the cost of measuring the product’s environmental performance, enabling reliable environmental claim...
Article
A critical understanding of how knowledge collaboration may work in various configurations is a prerequisite in shedding light on how effective knowledge collaboration affects opportunities for business growth. This article presents a case analysis of a knowledge collaboration initiative between a university and other knowledge organizations. The p...

For a better understanding of the impact of global student flows on industries and knowledge societies, we need to rethink the relationship between global student mobility and migrant knowledge. The authors elaborate on the view that current policy and practice relating to higher education mobility puts too much emphasis on mobilizing pools of know...
Article
Waste oil management systems include processes such as generation, collection, recycling, and disposal and result in various environmental, economic, social, and regulatory impacts which complicate waste management analysis. In this paper, the waste oil management system in Finland is analysed using the systems thinking approach to identify the mai...
Article
This paper reports on the systematic development of a teaching methodology for two chemical engineering courses. The aim was to improve the quality of teaching to achieve expected learning outcomes more effectively. The development was carried out over a period of several years based on an action research methodology with data systematically extrac...
Article
We developed, made suitable and tested a generic case-based reasoning platform, called Nextcase/safety, for helping safety managers taking decisions on prevention measures more efficiently. Recommendations provided by the software are based on quick and effective past similar incident retrieval and expertise-driven advice. Hence, the developed soft...
Conference Paper
On-site production of chemicals is sometimes feasible even though the production in large scale, for the needs of several custumers, is usually more economical. Often the main advantage is connected with safety issues. By producing on-site, the Transportation of dangerous chemicals can be avoided. Moreover, smaller on-site production processes also...
Article
A novel method for process development is presented. The approach is based on the evaluation of available technologies and aiming at new and innovative designs by combining their best features in a creative way. The knowledge is extracted either directly from similar processes or from processes with sufficient analogy. A case study on melamine proc...
Article
The role of models in process development is discussed in the paper. Scientists are developing more and more impressive results in computer aided process engineering and that way generating new possibilities. In spite of that, there exist, at least in most areas of chemical and process industries, series difficulties when models area applied in pra...
Article
Neural network modelling has proved a valuable tool for the pulp and paper industries. However, it is usually complicated and time consuming, and special expertise is needed to develop nonlinear models of high quality. Industries, therefore, do not want to develop neural network models ab initio for each modification in their designs, for any equip...
Article
Adaptation is the most difficult step in case-based reasoning. There are no general methods for the modification of the retrieved cases to fit the actual design problem. The use of new, context independent technique is an important research subject. In the paper, a hybrid adaptation system is proposed. Its main components are based on fuzzy logic a...
Article
Case-based reasoning (CBR) is an alternative approach to rule case-based and object-oriented systems. CBR is based on the retrieval and adaptation of the old solutions to the new problems. There are five steps in CBR: introduction of a new problem, retrieval of the most similar cases, adaptation of the most similar solutions, validation of the curr...
