THE VIRTUAL FACULTY

Our delineation of the subject matter of psychology has to take account of discourses, significations, subjectivities, and positionings, for it is in these that psychological phenomena actually exist. For example, an attitude should not be seen as a semipermanent mental entity, causing people to say and do certain things. Rather, it comes into existence in displays expressive of decisions and judgements and in the performance of actions. Each reconceptualization helps to draw attention to the fact that the study of the mind is a way of understanding the phenomena that arise when different sociocultural discourses are integrated within an identifiable human individual situated in relation to those discourses
(Harré and Gillet, 1994: 22).

QCRI - Social Innovation

QCRI - Social Innovation | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:

The overflow of information generated during disasters can paralyze humanitarian response efforts just like lack of information does. Computers, mobile phones, social media, mainstream news, earth-based sensors, humanitarian drones and orbiting satellites generate vast volumes of data during major disasters. Making sense of this flash flood of information, “Big Data”, is proving an impossible challenge for traditional humanitarian organizations. To meet this challenge, QCRI’s Social Innovation Program partners directly with humanitarian organizations around the world to develop the next generation humanitarian technologies they need to make sense of “Big Data." Our humanitarian technologies are also directly applicable to a wide range of other social good initiatives, ranging from wildlife protection and election monitoring to building resilient societies and flying drones for good.

Online collaboration: Scientists and the social network

Online collaboration: Scientists and the social network | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
Giant academic social networks have taken off to a degree that no one expected even a few years ago. A Nature survey explores why.
bacigalupe's insight:

More than 4.5 million researchers have signed up for ResearchGate, and another 10,000 arrive every day, says Madisch. That is a pittance compared with Facebook’s 1.3 billion active users, but astonishing for a network that only researchers can join. And Madisch has grand goals for the site: he hopes that it will become a key venue for scientists wanting to engage in collaborative discussion, peer review papers, share negative results that might never otherwise be published, and even upload raw data sets. “With ResearchGate we’re changing science in a way that’s not entirely foreseeable,” he says, telling investors and the media that his aim for the site is to win a Nobel prize.

VOST Leadership Coalition

VOST Leadership Coalition | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
Virtual Operations Support Teams (VOST) as applied to emergency management and disaster recovery is an effort to make use of new communication technologies and social media tools so that a team of trusted agents can lend support via the internet to those on-site who may otherwise be overwhelmed by the volume of data generated during a disaster. VOS Teams (VOST) are activated to perform specific functions in support of affected organizations & jurisdictions. Each VOST has a Team Leader that reports directly to the affected organization/jurisdiction. As additional VOSTs are established, a VOS Group (VOSG) may be established to coordinate the work of the VOSTs to maintain an effective span of control. The VOSG has a Group Supervisor that reports to the affected organization/jurisdiction. The VOST Leaders report to the Group Supervisor

A Force For Good: The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and Healthwise Merge | Informed Medical Decisions Foundation

A Force For Good: The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and Healthwise Merge | Informed Medical Decisions Foundation | Collaborative Consultation | Scoop.it
bacigalupe's insight:

he Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, the nonprofit with the world’s greatest experience in shared medical decision making, and Healthwise, the nonprofit with the world’s greatest reach in helping people make better health decisions are merging. The new organization, which will become official at closing in early April, will continue to help more than 160 million people each year to make better health decisions.

By joining forces we will help ever-increasing numbers of people become meaningfully involved in their health care decisions. Healthwise brings exceptionally strong expertise in patient engagement technologies and plain language, as well as nationwide policy leadership in health information technology. We bring equally strong expertise and leadership in clinical evidence, research and evaluation, and shared decision making policy. Our complementary strengths will provide an even stronger voice for the patient and together we will help bring about a health care system that is truly responsive to the patient’s voice.

The new Healthwise will be governed by a board of directors who bring incredible depth and breadth across health care and beyond. The 13-member board will be chaired by Peggy O’Kane, long-time CEO for the National Committee for Quality Assurance. See our full list of incoming board members.

The two organizations retain their names and areas of expertise but with a common mission—to help people make better health decisions. Don Kemper will remain CEO of Healthwsie. Michael Barry, MD, retains his title of president of the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and adds the title of chief science officer.

In the spirit of the Mayflower Compact, the two organizations signed a Compact that clearly sets the direction of the combined organization to:

inform and amplify each person’s voice,help people improve the care they provide for themselves and their families,help people set and reach health behavior goals,and advocate for public policy that supports these goals.

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are | Video on TED.com

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.
bacigalupe's insight:

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.
