'Research suffers if scientists are forced to marry for money'

'Research suffers if scientists are forced to marry for money' | Euroscientists | Scoop.it

Conference delegates bemoan funding system that breeds 'networks of mediocrity'.

European policymakers have been urged to reform the "exhausted" top-down funding mechanisms that force researchers into collaborations.Enric Banda, president of Euroscience, which works to advance science and technology across Europe, told the SciTech Europe conference in Brussels last week that collaboration worked best when researchers determined their own projects and chose their partners as appropriate.

Most European research funding requires applicants to bid in multigroup and multicountry consortia. But Professor Banda objected to proposals that "force you to invent what you will do to get the money".

"The European Commission has done a great job but its mechanisms of collaboration are exhausted and it should find better ones," he said.

He also urged the scientific community to be "vigilant and united" against a trend towards science policy being determined "in offices by people who know next to nothing about science".

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Euroscientists | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.
