Learning moments and activities outside the classroom. Resources for outdoors learners. The university is outdoors. This is our latest project based on many teachable moments found during our trips and outdoors activities. We ant to share what the communities are doing to teach their citizens about the environment, energy, information systems, and technologies. Jun 30, 2014
I have created a new TED ED lesson about how technologies and new business educational models to be used in higher education courses. Our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue using this TED Talk in online discussions in Strategic Management, Information Systems, and Management courses.
What do you think about this online education model? Why would you consider or not a tuition-free graduate degree? Why employers would hire or not a MBA graduate from an online university? Search for reports and post your views.
At the online University of the People, anyone with a high school diploma can take classes toward a degree in business administration or computer science — without standard tuition fees (though exams cost money). Founder Shai Reshef hopes that higher education is changing “from being a privilege for the few to a basic right, affordable and accessible for all.”

TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue after our TEDxFSCJ Salon linking our educational topics with the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). This term Leadership students pre-selected 10 TED Talks related to Leadership, Social Responsibility, and Global Goals. They defended their pre-selections during class and voted for the top three. This week we will have a Roundtable to discuss about the selected videos and how they are contributing with one or more of the 17 SDGs. TED-Ed Lessons will be created with the three videos to be used next term.
Global Learning Opportunities Building Engagement (GLOBE) continues integrating a systemic view of business functions and the global environment. #MicroLecture of the points we cover in detail in our courses in Global Management and Global Information Systems. Via YouTube Capture from my iPhone.

Another #GlobalLearningAdventures’ presentation. Our journey to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar, a city divided by a river and connected by a historic bridge. Two communities living in both sides of the city reconstructing their lives, city and country after a war.
We visited Bosnia and Herzegovina and went to Medjugorje and Mostar. We started on Italy and crossed Slovenia and Croatia before arriving to Medjugorje. We visited Mostar in a rainy day and we were able to visit downtown, a mosque, and a catholic church. We crossed the Old Bridge and talked to locals. We crossed the street that separated both sides during the was and we were able to see buildings with bullet holes. Our Mostar presentation explores post-conflict reconstruction, projects, businesses, and government.
I attended a presentation about history of Bosnian-Serbian relations by Dr. Andrew Holt. The frame of reference was the book “The Bosnia List” and part of FSCJ “The Authors’ Series”. It was great to learn about the history I was able to live during our visit to Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
