FHSST Release 0

I probably should have blogged about the release of the zeroth version of the FHSST books immediately but it seems that blogging isn't really in my blood.

Here is the announcement we sent out.

Hi All

Layo's visit

Yesterday we had the pleasure of Titilayo Seriki's company for a lunch-time discussion. She runs a consulting firm, along with Peter Heinecke, called Cielarko. The reason I invited her to come and chat to us was that I wanted to hear more about her PhD thesis results and how they might affect Siyavula.

Teachers, websites and coffee.

As mentioned in a previous post, I want to start posting some in-depth blogs about the various aspects of the Siyavula project plan. The most pressing issue that external stakeholders seem to be interested in is the reasoning for our platform choice.

128 physical manifestations of disease ...

Ok, the title is probably not worded very precisely but it's in the right ballpark. During the meeting today, one of the people from the University of Michigan mentioned that there are only 128 symptoms (is this the right word) a patient can present, it was a talk about health faculties sharing OERs. This had never occurred to me, but, in my defence, I had never ever even thought about it.

What on earth does this have to do with Siyavula? Well if you based your medical curriculum on case-based learning then the educational resources have a very well-defined tagging scheme.
