    • Afro-responsibility

      Afro-responsibility

      The history of Africa is filled with themes of oppression through colonialism and slave trade. Over the years as the world systems evolved, colonialism and slavery where abolished. They did however, leave some remnants impacting the the socio-economic and environmental outlook of Africa as well as the African identity. The status of an African among other races has always been challenged by the African himself as well as other races around him. Afro Responsibility involves embracing one's identity as an African and taking elements from the African culture to inform and direct every sphere of life. The term was first used by Justina Kes Agbosa and expanded by Emelda Itai Daka defining it as the notion that we have a duty as Africans to adopt African indigenous knowledge, indigenous resources and indigenous innovations as the foundation for all socio-economic and environmental activities, in bringing solutions to African problems. To build on this concept, the course will focus on grassroots innovations, Ubuntu African philosophy and African identity

Based on the student’s accounts, research can be burdensome if the general template is not established for the many possible types of product development studies. Because product development can take different directions and different methods, it can be perplexing for students to follow the template that is not as open to new forms of innovations.

      The importance of play in schools

      Is play key to developing creativity and critical thinking?In this article, I discuss the importance of play within the home and educational settings. Sadly playtime seems to be seen as unimportant in regards to the more mainstream teaching methods once children leave the foundation stage. As a forest school leader play is a fundamental right that sadly seems to have been eroded in many schools, particularly in the USA where 'recess' has been shortened, mostly to enable more time in the classroom. Hopefully, as we place more emphasis on good mental health the importance of play within the context of education will return.

    • Research methodology for health and social care

      Research methodology for health and social care

      Health and social care professionals carry out a form of research whenever they observe, take measurements and refer to other professionals to gather and record information about the individuals in their care. They interpret the information and use it to assess the individual’s progress against the individual’s care plan. If necessary, the plan is changed and the effect of this is also monitored. This is regarded as informal research because it is part of routine health and social care practice and relates to the care of individuals. However, all new advances in health and social care are tested using a formal research process, which involves specific planning, collecting relevant information, interpreting it and publishing the results of the research. This unit investigates different functions of health and social care research and the principles that underpin it. You will explore ethical and legal issues relating to health and social care research and different techniques that may be used to gather research data. You will plan a small-scale research project on a topic relating to health and social care, subject to consent from your centre and the assessment requirements of the unit. The plan will include a justification of your choice of methods to gather new information in the context of existing knowledge of the subject gathered from a literature review. You will carry out the research and produce a report in which you present your results, interpret them and evaluate the research methodology you used in the project.
