I am obsessed with online courses these days. In the past, I used to enroll a class and take a few modules, get bored eventually and then quit. It was my main cycle for quite a long time.
But starting from this year, I finally managed to discipline myself. Last month I took a course on writing for the web. I must admit, it really helped me to get a few hints about writing. I am happy that I can use what I have learned and it is amazing to see the outcome.
After I had finished “writing for the web”, I signed up for a gender equality and diversity course conducted by the professors of Diego Portales University in Chile. Although I have been involved in gender equality related projects for years, I knew that my academic background is not sufficient at all. The course consists of several topics such as gender-related terms, the historical background of feminism, the legal basis of gender equality, international agreements and public policy. So far, it is amazing.
And finally last week, I enrolled another class on Science and Cooking. This time it is totally out of my field, both science and cooking : ) It has been ages since the last time I dealt with maths, chemistry and physics. To be honest, I find it really hard to do all those calculations but I am thrilled that at least I took the challenge. I have already drafted a post about it. But I will be able to tell you more if I manage to continue : )
On the work side, this past week I was mostly occupied with the preparation for several events related to Women’s empowerment to take place in March.
Apart from work and online courses, I discovered a few new things too. Here we go with this week’s suggestions:
TV Series: Goliath
This is the story of a disgraced lawyer who suddenly becomes obsessed with a new case and tries to hold onto life by trying to win it.
Movie: Azul y no tan rosa
Unfortunately, this was the only film I could watch this week. This is the story of a gay couple whose families find it hard to admit their sexual preferences.
Umwelt: A German term meaning the world as it is experienced by a particular organism. Even if we share the same environment, each organism has its own experience, own umwelt.
