" Still photography, a practice and form of expression that has worked its way into every facet of social life and every culture in the world, is considered here from the perspectives of history and social science. We will discuss the uses and functions of pictures; how they are to be understood and interpreted; whether they have clear-cut content and meanings; how they shape and are shaped by politics, economics, and social life."

Addressing Social Inequality in Chiapas through Local, Healthy and Clean Foods: An Agroecological View

In Chiapas, one of the poorest states in Mexico, an estimated 150,000 children are malnourished. To end this problem, governments have implemented food security policies, including food importation and industrial food production. In 2008 alone, Mexico imported 20 million tons of food. While these policies certainly help to remedy the problem in the short term, the massive importation of basic foodstuffs and incentives to industrial agriculture may widen social inequality, threaten health and deteriorate biodiversity and ecosystem services. I will present the objectives and achievements of initiatives born in the highlands of Chiapas to enhance local food production free of hazardous pesticides and appropriate to the culture of the region. Examples include the rescue of local knowledge for food production, a school gardens program and the Network of Producers and Consumers for Healthy Local Food.

Download the supporting PDF file for this episode http://bit.ly/9Ml13Z from the Learning to Teach Online project website.This Learning to Teach Online case study aims to demonstrate how the effective use of simple 'just in time' style online tutorials, stringently prepared and designed to support the needs of the students, can positively impact student learning when used in conjunction with traditional teaching approaches. Stephanie Eckoldt and Dominic Alder from the University of Bristol examine the reasons why they adopted an online supported teaching approach, and discuss key considerations in the planning and use of online tutorials. It is hoped that teachers in a wide range of different disciplines will be able to relate how the use of online tutorials would be of benefit to their own students' learning. Any teachers or students studying medicine and surgery are freely able to access and use the Hippocrates online tutorials.
