How to Utilize Audience Feedback
Under the Title, "Teaching and learning in India", Karen Lee has written a blog from Science City in Kolkata, India < http://lnkd.in/SzUr3n > that My Friends on this platform may find of interest relative to 'identifying obstacles hindering us from learning', reporting on them, and helping communities to speed up the pace of development.
Clearly, that is a great deal to digest, and its only a short blog post, but hopefully it will provide some liberating food for thought to readers. Education and Learning are important to us all. Helping to unleash innovation to spur sustainable development is more easier today than ever due to the powers of modern technology to allow us to communicate globally. The internet can help us visit a museum many times zones away, but at the same time, perhaps in our own communities that we may never have noticed before.
Karen noted that '...grappling with the realization that effective science communication has a better chance of occurring when the sender is more familiar with the receiver'. Reading this, I digressed for a while to think about overcoming barriers that confront us in doing our work, especially barriers created by perceptions of others to our work.
