My Profile

Professional Background

After 15 years in basic research (biochemistry), and 15 years in politics (social democrat), started again a teaching career but now in the Social Sciences Division of my university. For the last 8 years have become an student of the citizen involvement in my society and the impact of TIC's on that involvement. I'm convinced that TIC's could bring about profound changes in our latin american culture, mostly in the way that we relate to groups and therefore to learning (more modern through the use of TIC's than through the traditional group settings).
I'm teaching social sciences courses at the undergraduate level, and at the graduate level a seminar on "Participación Social" (Citizenship?) and the effects of culture and TIC's on that involvement. I head a research group on the latter topic that stimulates student activities related to connectivity and university involvement.U-net

My Reflection

"Si podemos separar a los países del mundo en base a sus caracteristicas culturales, debemos tener esa variable en consideración a la hora de planificar cambios sociales."

Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours

  • How is your project going? Are people joining you? I think the first steps are the most difficult. Good luck with the project!--Katherine Bolman 23:17, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Welcome to the class. I am working on uploading images of ancient Australia. Take a peek. warmly--Katherine Bolman 21:37, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Do you think you could use any of the work on my web page with your Social Science class? And what do you teach in your Social Sciences class? I might be able to add something from art history to go with what your teaching. It would be fun to work together!--Katherine Bolman 00:18, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps! Do you know the World Values Survey Cultural map of the world? Take a look at it and lets dance together!--Luis A. Ordóñez V. 02:09, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi and thanks for looking at the site. I want to add music to all of the micro lessons. Some of the video clips. I will being going to another training when this is finished to learn Garageband which is a Mac program.
  • I just came back from a busy afternoon and dinner so I will take a look at the World Values Survey.--Katherine Bolman 04:22, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I strongly recomend to have music from the time of the art you are having the lesson, it is a value added to the cultural learning process!
