From Cape Town OER to Spanish Journal Article: Newest Amazing Story

Here is my newest Amazing Story of Sharing of 2010 (not THE newest, because they are happening all the time).

Last week I wrote of an unsolicited message from Michael Paskevicius of the University of Cape Town OER Project, eager to share the story of an open resource shared by Matumo Ramafikeng, a teacher at UCT, that had been discovered by editors of a journal in Spain who worked with the creator of the resource to turn it into a journal article.

I could try and tell the story, but I asked MIchael if he could possibly get Matumo to record her story as a video.

She did, and here it is

And so one good share deserves another, so I’ve added Matumo’s story to the collection

Excuse the repetition, but I stil find these stories to be ama—–

Matumo makes a wonderful statement as a comment to the blog post that first told me this story

I would like to encourage other occupational therapists and scientists, particularly those in sub-Saharan Africa to be more open to the idea of sharing information freely. This will enable other therapists in countries like Lesotho (my home country) to access current information that they could use to improve practice and continue their professional development.

If this kind of stuff has value, please support me by tossing a one time PayPal kibble or monthly on Patreon
