This course is designed to provide a working knowledge of doing research on gender key issues in health, politics and media. Students will draw from their foundational graduate work in theory and methodology to interrogate research in contemporary issues across a number of contexts in the above specified domains. Students will participate in learner-centred activity-based social inquiry to articulate and explain the social construction of a ‘social problem’ and how social problems become ‘public problems’. The practice of oral and written communication and research skills will be integrated into these scholarly investigations. Students will engage with a number of research studies in order to evaluate instances of theoretical and applied development from a gender perspective. By doing so, graduate students will be prepared for professional careers in gender, culture and development.

In order to get the most of The TCP/IP Guide, a certain level of knowledge regarding the basics of networking is very helpful. Unlike many other resources, however, I did not want to start with the assumption that my reader knew what networking was all about. After all, that's why you are reading this Guide!
So, I decided to include this section, which provides an overview of some of the basic issues related to networking. This area is where I place discussions of some of the most fundamental networking concepts and ideas. It serves not only to provide you, the reader, with useful background material, but also as a repository for “general” information so that I don't need to repeat it in many different places elsewhere in the Guide. This in turn allows those who already know about these basics to avoid having to skip over them in many other locations.
In this section I have provided several subsections that introduce networking and talk about some of its most important fundamental concepts. First, I introduce networking in very broad terms, discussing what it is and why it is important. Then, I describe several fundamental characteristics of networks that you will need to understand the various networking technologies. I discuss the different general types and sizes of networks and how they are differentiated. I then talk about many different matters related to network performance. I explain the importance of networking standards and standards organizations. Finally, I provide a background section that describes the fundamentals of how data is stored and manipulated in computers; if you are new to computing you may find that information useful when reading some parts of this Guide.
