The Case for SmOOCs

Jenny Connected

SmOOCs have a lot going for them, principally in terms of the relationship between size, diversity and openness. Canada, USA, South America, Africa, Europe, India, the Far East and Australia were all represented and at the time of writing 60 people have accessed the Moodle site within the last 3 weeks. This in itself is interesting, as in the early days of MOOCs it was thought that large numbers were required for diversity. Change 11- massiveness and diversity.

Another aspect that can be investigated is the diversity of the source of employees. Ultimately this can lead to a ‘sameness’ between the key players in the industry, resulting in less innovation and less diversity of offerings.

Facilitation tips for improvisers

Viv Mcwaters

A trip to the theatre, attending a facilitated event – both are a diversion, not business as usual. 3 tips for science communications It’s National Science Week here in Australia. One of the ongoing themes around applied improvisation is the use of language, and recognising that improvisation has its own jargon. This jargon may sometimes be unhelpful when introducing people to the principles and practices of improvisation.

A simple solution to a complex problem?

Viv Mcwaters

Southern Australia, and especially where I live, is particularly bush fire prone. Bush fires start often from lightening strikes. Not much you can do about that except be prepared.

The diversity of people and dress is striking but the common qualities of the mother-child relationship come through. Not surprisingly, I especially liked the total context and qualities in Sam Abel’s picture of a mother and three children in Northwest Australia. I recently received a review copy of Mothers and Children by National Geographic. It is a wonderful small book full of pictures of mothers with their children from all over the world.
