To blog or not to blog .. .this is the question!! but let me quote the conclusion of our blogger:

«The risk of plagiarism from others reading your blog post is no worse than when you have a conversation with someone at a conference, ... openness can lead to collaborations and other benefits, which is why that conference conversation might have happened in the first place ... blogging brings opportunities that traditional publications alone might not do, so that risk might be one worth taking».

An earthquake felt across South Asia

An earthquake felt across South Asia | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"The magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday morning destroyed parts of Kathmandu, trapped many people under rubble and killed more than 2,500 people. It was the worst to hit the country since a massive 1934 temblor killed more than 8,000."

Joshua Mason's curator insight, April 29, 11:04 AM

It's absolutely devastating what happened to Nepal. Any loss of life is a tragedy but loss of this scale is unimaginable. It's going to be a difficult rebuilding process for the Nepalese whether that's coping with the loss or physically rebuilding the nation.

 

Watching footage of shakes, what struck me the most was hundreds of year old temples crumbling. Those just aren't something you can easily rebuild. The building can eventually be replaced but the significance of it is almost lost. 

 

Those temples, like the homes in the area, were most likely not built up to a standard that could withstand earthquakes or at least earthquakes of this magnitude. It's easy to see how destruction on this scale can occur in large urban populations that were not designed to stand against such a dramatic event.

Kristin Mandsager San Bento's curator insight, May 1, 3:59 PM

I've experienced earthquakes more times than I've ever felt the need.  We used to get them all the time it seemed in Japan.  My bed would role across the room.  It got to the point where I just slept through them.  If I had even felt a shake half as violent as what Nepal went through I could not even imagine the fright.  I wonder how long the India and Eurasia tectonic plates will stay on top of each other?  Or if a few more earth quakes will split the area?

The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning

The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

21 April 2015 by Jane Hart: I have shared, in a number of places, a diagram of Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) , which I believes visualise all the main ways we learn at work. However, I have recently added a few P words that have helped to summarise the different elements as well as L&D’s role in it in order to help people at work. so I am sharing this diagram.

David Price talked about these "Do it's" recently in relation to the whole concept of open learning. Perhaps use them as a check-list to see what you currently include in your teaching?
