Bridging the Gap
dr. Mihaela Tilinca's insight:

CSR and training towards reducing the skills gap

- a model to examine comes from J.P Morgan; based on figures from Europe and US, there are millions unemployed, yet millions of vacant jobs - training for skills and support offered by companies is the mens to tackle the paradox

dr. Mihaela Tilinca's insight:

social media as a resource for teachers and teaching...any teacher should at least know about it and plan to develop the right skills in order to use it creatively for her/his professional development and for developing learning situations for their students

Social media for academia: some things I have learnt

Social media for academia: some things I have learnt | employability | Scoop.it
2012 was the year of my big experiment: trying out various forms of social media for academic purposes. I was in many ways a social media novice when I began, as I had only really dabbled in Facebo...
dr. Mihaela Tilinca's insight:

An authentic piece of experience, presented briefly and clearly, connecting academica and research with social media and Web 2.0.

Deborah Lupton confirms through her work and publishing that we can use social media for professional development and for promoting our work...the 'I don't have time for such games' of some academics just doesn't make sense anymore.

A good book can change your life ... and your brain | GizMag.com

A good book can change your life ... and your brain | GizMag.com | employability | Scoop.it

Stories, whether fact or fiction, are at the heart of human culture. A strong narrative can resonate with your personality and experiences, and help set a framework for your future. "That book changed my life" is a cherished maxim. So can a book change your brain too? A recent study led by Emory University's Gregory Berns has demonstrated that reading a novel produces physical changes in the brain similar to those that would result from living as one or more of the characters.

 

Neurobiological research using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has begun to identify brain networks associated with reading stories. Most previous studies have focused on the cognitive processes involved in short stories, while subjects are actually reading them in the fMRI scanner. The Berns study, published in the journal Brain Connectivity, focused on changes in brain connectivity occurring between reading chapters of a novel, and the fading of those changes once the novel was finished.
