On e-learning in Bhutan: Rymeski '81

Remote education and the e-learning landscape have a lot to do with my experience traveling to schools in the Kingdom of Bhutan. One thing I discovered is that the process of learning generally rises above the level of resources supporting it. And that comes from commitment and motivation.

Love, tolerance and BBQ

UOTeachOUT, a program run by the Education Studies department at the UO College of Education, is carrying the proverbial rainbow banner into a nationwide discussion about how to address gender identity and sexual orientation issues in education. When they started five years, they were basically a single voice breaking a "veil of silence." Now, Julie Heffernan's phone rings a lot more; teachers don't just know - nor are they often taught - about how to deal with such issues in the classroom.
