Lyrics for Speak Peace

Lyrics for Speak Peace, a worship song by the New Creation Worship Team. It reminds me of Psalm 23:4 and Mark 4:39. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.

Effective Lecture Is Possible [workshop notes]

Lecturers drone on and students are bored. But lectures are still useful when there is a large number of students to teach. This workshop looks at how you can make lectures worthwhile for students and strategies for…

Identifying Learning Outcomes and Planning Learning Activities [workshop notes]

Planning learning activities that contribute to the learning outcomes and using Bloom’s Taxonomy to identify good learning outcomes are my take-away from this workshop. Introduction This workshop addresses two key elements of course design: student learning outcomes and learning activities, and the important relationship between them. The underlying concept in the workshop is that of ‘alignment’. In the case of the topic of this workshop, alignment means that first, the learning outcomes are clearly expressed in terms of what the students will be able to do by the end of a…

Take On Me by aha

I came across this 2017 acoustic version of Take On Me by aha on my Facebook newsfeed recently. The song is an old one, the rendition is new. This 1985 song is a huge hit not just because it was an energetic pop song but because of the animated/live-action music video, which was considered very high-tech in the 1980s. Can it be turned into a slow song? Well, here it is…after 32 years. Gosh! This song can be found in their 2017 live release “MTV Unplugged: Summer Solstice“. This is the first…

The Transformed Library by Jeannette Woodward

The Transformed Library: E-books, Expertise, and Evolution [Review]

The Transformed Library: E-Books, Expertise, and Evolution by Jeannette Woodward My rating: 4 of 5 stars My Review: It is a sobering read about the future of libraries, especially the section on academic libraries and how university administrators’ view us. And how most of our efforts to create and articulate value fell short because we are missing the point. She made observations about initiatives and projects libraries embarked on and how there are more misses than hits.

Dayo Wong

黄子华Stand Up Comedy Video List

黄子华Stand Up Comedy video list. I really enjoy Dayo Wong’s stand up comedy shows so I compiled all that I can find on Youtube so I don’t have to keep looking for them. I first saw him in a TVB drama about a detective that isn’t quite the conventional police officer. A most entertaining and enjoyable drama. Unfortunately, he didn’t have many other TV drama shows. I didn’t know he has been doing stand up comedy since 1990. It is good that I found out recently and that a lot…
