Le Master Complémentaire Formasup (60 crédits) est organisé depuis maintenant 6 ans à l’université de Liège. Son public-cible est constitué d’enseignants du supérieur, de Belgique et de l’étranger, désireux de réfléchir à leur pratique enseignante, de se remettre en question, d’entrer en projet pour innover dans leur classe, de mener une recherche et de communiquer sur ces avancées professionnelles. Le courant du « Scholarship of Teaching and Learning » (SoTL, Boyer 1990) nous a guidés dans la constitution d’un référentiel de compétences qui s’est affiné au fil des années et reflète aujourd’hui ces préoccupations. Pour développer ces compétences, les enseignants inscrits à Formasup sont chacun aidés d’un accompagnateur. Ils interagissent à travers un outil en ligne qui leur permet de dialoguer à propos de leur développement des compétences ciblées dans le référentiel. Ils se voient progresser, sont encouragés dans ces progrès et construisent peu à peu leur portfolio professionnel. Ce portfolio jouera le rôle de « dossier de réussite » (Tardif 2006). Après un cadrage contextuel et conceptuel, les trois outils (référentiel - outil d’accompagnement au développement de compétences - portfolio) font chacun l’objet d’une présentation, dont se dégage l’importance de la cohérence entre les différents instruments de la formation professionnelle des enseignants.

Complex analytical procedures are often required to prove the non-compliance with a specific legislation. In the case of a small overlap of the limit, integration of the method uncertainty in the decision-making process is essential. The decision rule proposed in Wallonia, Belgium, for the non-compliance of waste incineration plants with the EU limit value for PCDD and PCDF emissions is presented. The method uncertainty was estimated annually over 6 years from duplicate measurements using two top-down approaches. Depending on the congener, the standard uncertainty varies from 30 to 85%, with a good correlation between calculations. The analytical contribution was estimated using a bottom-up evaluation. The impact of the sampling step was deduced from the whole estimation and represents more than 80% of the total uncertainty budget. No optimisation is foreseen at this time because of practical field constraints. Based on the average fraction of each congener, the uncertainty associated with the measurement result has been established and shows a high stability over the years. Using this value, a guard band has been calculated and will be proposed to the regulatory body. [less ▲]

In post-genocide Rwanda, in addition to gacaca courts, a truth commission is needed in order to promote justice and foster reconciliation. In the context of transitional justice, retributive justice, which seeks justice and focuses on the perpetrators, appears to be inadequate to lead a society towards reconciliation. Therefore, some forms of restorative justice, which emphasize the healing of the whole society, seem necessary. In Rwanda, gacaca courts and a truth commission are complementary. The former can bring justice, the latter can seek the truth; both crucial ingredients of a peaceful future for Rwandans. The essay opens with the discussion of the nature of the genocide and the responses to post-genocide Rwanda’s crisis. The second and third parts present the existent gacaca system and a theoretical framework for a truth commission. The combination of both approaches in view of the double goal of justice and reconciliation concludes this paper. [less ▲]

Following international agreements and european legislation, risk analysis has become a systematic approach to control the food chain safety. The microbial risks in the food chain and their consequences for public health can be assessed and managed more effectively. This paper gives a general description of the risk analysis principles based on the Codex Alimentarius commission. This work highlights the advantages and disadvantages of risk analysis and also treats the problems to achieve a complete “farm to fork” model. Salmonella in different food types is taken as an example to illustrate quantitative risk assessment. Two models concerning eggs and broiler chickens developed by the World Health Organization/Food and Agriculture Organization consortium and a third model concerning pigs developed by the Veterinary Laboratories Agency of the United Kingdom are described. An analysis of the methods used for the construction of these two models is also presented. The interest of these three models is that they also include risk management options to limit the spread of food-borne infections. They also describe the final risk for a population following consumption of foodstuffs. These models are valuable tools for health officials but also for feed industry. [less ▲]

Pyelectasis is a dilatation of the renal pelvis. It must be differentiated from hydronephrosis which is a dilation of the renal pelvis and of the renal calyces. In this retrospective study, we focused on the treatment and follow up of 31 newborns in whom a pyelectasis had been diagnosed in utero. At the end of the study, 20 babies showed no sign of an urologic disorder whereas 11 babies did. Our study suggests that it is crucial to search for an urologic disorder in the neonatal period when a fetal pyelectasis has been diagnosed. [less ▲]

The best conservation of the initial quality of the banana trees fruits after harvest requires a full understanding of their process of maturation and senescence. Maturation is an irreversible phenomenon, highly coordinated, genetically programmed and involving a series of physiological, biochemical and organoleptic changes. Textural softening during ripening leads to adverse effects and spoilage upon storage. This process is influenced by ethylene, carbon dioxide, temperature and oxygen. The major classes of cell wall polysaccharides that undergo modifications during ripening are starch, pectins, cellulose and hemicelluloses. These modifications are allotted to the action of enzymes.

This chapter of the 'Flavor in the era of LHC' workshop report discusses flavor-related issues in the production and decays of heavy states at the LHC at high momentum transfer Q, both from the experimental and the theoretical perspective. We review top quark physics, and discuss the flavor aspects of several extensions of the standard model, such as supersymmetry, little Higgs models or models with extra dimensions. This includes discovery aspects, as well as the measurement of several properties of these heavy states. We also present publicly available computational tools related to this topic. © Springer-Verlag / Società Italiana di Fisica 2008. [less ▲]

We present a numerical method for the computation of wave scattering by convex three-dimensional obstacles, which exhibits a bounded computational complexity for arbitrarily high frequencies. The method is based on a combination of a high-frequency ansatz for the unknown density in a boundary integral formulation of the problem, and an extension of the ideas of the method of stationary phase to allow for the efficient integration of oscillatory functions. The method builds upon the ideas proposed in [2] and [1]. [less ▲]

The crystal structure of a cold-active aminopeptidase (ColAP) from Colwellia psychrerythraea strain 34H has been determined, extending the number of crystal structures of the M1 metallopeptidase family to four among the 436 members currently identified. In agreement with their sequence similarity, the overall structure of ColAP displayed a high correspondence with leukotriene A4 hydrolase (LTA4H), a human bifunctional enzyme that converts leukotriene A4 (LTA4) in the potent chemoattractant leukotriene B4. Indeed, both enzymes are composed of three domains, an N-terminal saddle-like domain, a catalytic thermolysin-like domain, and a less conserved C-terminal alpha-helical flat spiral domain. Together, these domains form a deep cavity harboring the zinc binding site formed by residues included in the conserved HEXXHX(18)H motif. A detailed structural comparison of these enzymes revealed several plausible determinants of ColAP cold adaptation. The main differences involve specific amino acid substitutions, loop content and solvent exposure, complexity and distribution of ion pairs, and differential domain flexibilities. Such elements may act synergistically to allow conformational flexibility needed for an efficient catalysis in cold environments. Furthermore, the region of ColAP corresponding to the aminopeptidase active site of LTA4H is much more conserved than the suggested LTA4 substrate binding region. This observation supports the hypothesis that this region of the LTA4H active site has evolved in order to fit the lipidic substrate. [less ▲]
