Excellent video! Good point about putting everything into a bin, I always just thought about making sure I had the food and supplies in my house, I didn't think about having to take it with me quickly.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, February 6, 2014 7:13 AM

I like the suggestion to set up your own skype studio place in your home.  This way you can perfect the lighting, the background, and the information you could position around you for the interview.

 

Practing your facial gestures and body language is important.  Video tape yourself to see for yourself how authentic, professional, and interested you come across.

 

Practice makes perfect.

Teaching as a Way to Learn
What is learning and what is the best way to approach it? Listening to lectures, watching videos, listening to podcasts, or reading text may not be as effective and meaningful as learning through active learning. Being involved and part of the learning process helps students retain information. One way to get students involved in active learning is through teaching as a way to learn.

6 Blended Learning Models & Platforms

 

Imagine a classroom where the students have the ability to spend their class time collaborating with other students, receiving additional support from the teacher, or working on hands on projects with their peers. A hands-on enriched classroom is possible with blended learning.

The Rice Process's curator insight, January 25, 2014 11:48 AM

I am particularly drawn to the blended learning classroom.  It is an emerging learning theory and the developers are profoundly motivated to transform learning.

 What I have learned is that schools adopting this model embrace technology-based learning, project-based learning, game-based learning, and socio-emotional learning. These learning organizations recognize our world is complex, knowledge is dynamic, expertise and experts reside beyond the teacher. 

The practice of blended learning works because the process combines the best of two instructional resources: teacher talent and technology tools. Blended learning facilitates instruction by allowing teachers to address individual students and small groups – by utilizing appropriate software and engaging in meaningful interaction. Blended learning positions the teacher as the fulcrum on the instructional scale.  Blended learning is beyond low level attempts to integrate technology in the classroom.  This approach radicalizes the way teachers and students use time and technology resources.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 26, 2014 4:19 AM

Blended learning offers many opportunities for both the teacher and the student that a traditional brick and mortar classroom may not. With the increasing demands of state standards and busy school days, blended learning permits students to learn a portion of the academic content at home and gives teachers the ability to engage students in a richer, deeper, and more meaningful context in the classroom.

Blended learning enables the teacher to become more of a participant in student learning and can help facilitate student mastery of content with enriching learning activities introduced and completed when the class meets face to face.

A Positive Approach to Studying Diversity in Organizations — HBS Working Knowledge

A Positive Approach to Studying Diversity in Organizations — HBS Working Knowledge | Student Engagement | Scoop.it
Considering that the topic of workplace diversity often garners unhappy discussions of prejudice, isolation, and conflict, it's not surprising that many researchers avoid the topic altogether.
NEng's insight:

For a researcher true to his/her field of endeavor, who has neither love nor hate for the subject being researched, and strives for manifesting the truth of the subject matter, the challenges of difficult situations will not become an excuse.

 

Carl Sagan, the great astronomer and science writer, believed that we make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers.

 

We see and appreciate diversity everywhere in nature; why not in humanity? Perhaps some fundamental research questions to help us understand diversity are: Why is there diversity in humanity? What are the benefits of diversity? What is the underlying purpose behind the  research questions posed in the area of the study of diversity?
