Employability & Career Development: Networking
Networking is all about people and relationships. An individual’s network of family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and associates possesses a certain ‘organic’ quality. Like a plant or a tree, at any given moment in time, a person’s network is a certain size and even has a certain health about it. What is more, it responds positively both to positive input (nourishment) and careful cultivation (management).

Learning aware environement: a Laboratorium of epidemiological studies
One challenge of the Laboratorium is to have the capacity to recognize and capture relevant events from observing the human activity, the ability to understand the learning needs and then to provide the adequate feedback in whatever form. Another challenge is the mapping of inaccessible phenomena into the sensible and temporal space of the classroom. Our design combines gaming situations and ambient technologies in the context of learning bio-statistics. This paper presents a method and a formal
