World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day - 13 Nov 2022 - and also COP27 is in full flow. World leaders in conference to work out how they can divert a world catastrophe, yet where the impression given is that uppermost for most is what best they can protect and retain rather than what they...

Ignite

Ignite

Diwali - The Festival of Lights celebrated on the Oct/Nov new moon, and especially by faiths in India. Yet should every day not be a Festival of Lights in Higher Education? A day where the lights of student souls are ignited, and where their hopes and dreams are...

Simply Spirit

Simply Spirit

Don't get suicidal over confusion about what you are. It's the WHO you are inside that matters. The body, its gender and its outward appearance, have all become such a big factor in how we express ourselves, but you can sidestep so much of the misery this can cause....

Role Model

Role Model

If we want to genuinely do good in this world, then we must first achieve a constant healthy state of mental and emotional wellbeing. It will be an uphill struggle otherwise. Sometimes a responsibility lands in our lap, as it did of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Or you...

The World’s Most Played Song

The World’s Most Played Song

The world’s most played song is the one we keep singing to ourselves, often all day long. You can spot it in conversations when it is clear no one is really listening. Hearing, yes (maybe), but not listening to a level where they are engaging their mind and heart with...

Systems & Snakes

Systems & Snakes

What does a snake eating its own tail signify? Some say it symbolises infinity. We say it symbolises the infinite capacity within higher education institutions to limp on since the mid-20th century without fundamental changes. How would we feel stepping into a...

Sacred

Sacred

Learning means growth, and growth means life. In nature, things are very clear-cut. If something isn't growing, then decline and dying are soon to follow. Just as a full moon only lasts for one night. Whether it is through carelessness, laziness, stubbornness or...

Encouragement

Encouragement

'Even an old pit pony needs the occasional pat on the nose.' A word of encouragement goes such a long way, especially when it is a long road that is less travelled. Most small children when they are learning to walk are given loads of encouragement to take the first...

Mis-Fit?

Mis-Fit?

Often described as the round peg in the square hole. Or worse, the square peg that can't even get into the round hole. If this is how you feel, then it doesn't mean that there is something wrong or lacking in you. It's just that the environment, the context, or simply...

Revolving Doors

Revolving Doors

Where an online integrity educators' practicum included a survey on the participants' own formal moral and ethics training, in relation to their work-field experience, most respondents stated that their higher education in this area was of little relevance. That they...

Be The Value-ADDED

Be The Value-ADDED

Universities and colleges don't 'own' knowledge anymore. Internet technology and MOOCS now enable a shift to individual access any where and at any time. It is a good time for teachers and lecturers to ask themselves: 'What is the job here?' Or even 'Is this still the...

In The Swamp?

In The Swamp?

It is hard to remember when you are up to your ears in hungry alligators that your priority should be to drain the swamp. But what is the alternative? Using all your attention and energy just to fight off the alligators can only last for a limited time. Or maybe...

Just Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want

Just Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want

It's hard to know what you want if you've never seen or in some way experienced it. It's like you settle for a tomato because you've never seen or tasted a freshly picked, naturally sun-ripened strawberry. But somehow the tomato doesn't always seem to 'hit the...

Don’t SUPPORT Me – GROW ME

Don’t SUPPORT Me – GROW ME

Support is a word that many people shrink away from. It can suggest 'You are weak', 'Something is lacking in you that needs fixing'. Many students would rather suffer low mental wellbeing than walk through a door where the word 'Support' is written because it is like...

Analysis then Paralysis

Analysis then Paralysis

The competent and rigorous research that we source from universities and that pertains to topics regarding our environment, economies, industries, and communities are always esteemed and valued. However, in matters closer to home, within the campus gates, is it...

We All Need A Docking Station

We All Need A Docking Station

Docking is different to simply parking. A connection is made when something docks: whether it is a ship's hawser tied to the quay or a module locking onto a space station. Docking says you are now in a stable and secure landing place where you can offload, download,...
