Free and excellent online learning via coursera

I love Coursera. It's an organization that brings the best educators in the world directly to us. You and members of your community can take a course from Harvard, Princeton, Wesleyan University (the best Universities in the world) right now, for free. Anyone can start studying right now. Geography, money, educational background are no longer barriers. I try to encourage every young student, every senior citizen, everyone to consider learning something new. Why not start a community learning group?

There are also some really great courses in the Life Sciences Section. Some look quite interesting (and challenging): Bacteria and Infection Control through University of Copenhagen gets really high marks. There is a course on Nutrition Science through John Hopkins University (one of the best medical schools in the US). Here's the Social Sciences Catalogue link - just click the button below.


Cool tools and resources

Switchtracking Podcast

Fascinating podcast explaining why giving feedback often doesn't go as planned! Just click on the link to start listening to Episode 1: Switchtracking. 

This is the podcast I referred to in class. 'Stereotype Threat', and 'Students and Teachers' episodes are very interesting and relevant. Heck, they're all interesting!

I use Tiny Scanner to create pdf files from the flip chart notes I transcribe when doing workshops or public consultations. It's easier to work with the notes when they're on 8.5 x 11 paper. Flip chart paper can be pretty inconvenient to work with when you're creating follow-up reports.
