Their primary responsibility is patient health, but the second role they have is to demonstrate best practices and procedures in front of a virtual classroom.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

The features we needed from a wireless system for this installation weren’t optional, they were all must-have requirements,” said Blumberg. “Frequency management, secure wireless transmission, and a lightweight, hands-free design are all factors that could potentially interfere with surgeons’ performance and our patients’ well-being. ULX-D didn’t just meet these requirements—the system exceeded them. So far, its performance has been flawless, and we’ve been especially impressed by its set of frequency management tools—that feature alone is priceless.”

At Times Higher Education: Q&A with Paul Muldoon | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it

Where and when were you born? I was born and brought up in north Armagh, although my people came [...]
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

If you’ve got a couple of poets who are publishing slim volumes every couple of years, there’s more bang for the buck than with the conventional academic who, once a decade, squeezes out a study of those same poets. It’s a dreadful worldview, and one that the universities and colleges must resist.

Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching?

Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching? | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
We like to talk about the value of pedagogy, but we never seem to get around to rewarding it.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Effective teaching is also a highly transferable skill that’s valuable in all kinds of nonclassroom settings. Not all graduate students will become professors, and the graduate curriculum has to change to reflect that reality. The promotion of teaching helps prepare graduate students for diverse employment possibilities by giving them applicable skills.

Sure, there are virtual versions, but the analog experience fills our programming rooms in a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Honestly, sometimes very little of gravity is happening on those computer terminals in urban libraries anyway. It’s often a lot of socializing on Facebook. It’s also cell phone videos of fights on Youtube. And yes, while thousands of people are indeed applying for jobs using our computers, fewer are getting them. Tech and traditional literacy skills are serious obstacles for our patrons. For those folks who have achieved those modern basic skills and have managed to get low-wage jobs, we often find ourselves helping them to use public terminals to fill out digital time sheets in between shifts. You know, so that the boss doesn’t have to hire secretaries for the HR department.

Digital collaboration goes deeper, gets lightweight and intelligent | ZDNet

Digital collaboration goes deeper, gets lightweight and intelligent | ZDNet | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Two tracks seem to be emerging with today's enterprise collaboration tools. Either they're becoming full-sized suites with the kitchen sink, or they're focusing making a few core features work better than anyone else.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

The progression of improved collaborative tools has recently led us to some interesting places, and further I believe it is about to take us to some interesting news ones. Certainly, most organizations have gone far beyond the initial early days of computer networks, file servers, teleconferences, and e-mails. Though these are still used, we've discovered many new -- and often more specialized -- ways of collaborating. The 1990s brought Groupware to the fore for the first time, even though the idea had come about many years before to focus on people just as much as technology when it comes to collaboration. Online communities began to form regularly then as well, especially in the technology world, but other industries as well.

Online education providers don't always live up to their promises, critics say.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

"There is a fallacy about human behavior that is being played out here. We’re social creatures, and I think that we learn best within a social setting," Kowal says. "It’s the exception that will work with online education as opposed to thinking that online education for the masses is going to work. It’s not."

American Dreams, 1924: ‘So Big’ by Edna Ferber | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Edna Ferber’s Pulitzer-winning ‘So Big’ was the bestselling novel of 1924. This class-conscious novel with a feminist heroine looks better the older it gets.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Selina is a proto-feminist hero, a character far ahead of her time, but Ferber is not entirely able to shake the trappings of her own era. So Big was published only four years after the passage of the 19th Amendment

In this post, we will explore two tools that students can use to plan projects that carry over right into the world of work. Two keys to successful planning with technology include the visual nature of the tool and the ability others have to see and edit the tool. An interactive chart that shows what the plan for getting the work done will be and what the status of that work is as it proceeds is just what’s needed.
