Second visit to Uganda by Partnerships in Health Information (Phi )

Further to my recent post on Phi’s visit to the Albert Cook library at Makerere University, Uganda, in November 2011, there are now more details of a planned second visit in July 2012.

As part of the three year successful bid of $145,000 to Elsevier to support the ” Enhancing access to current literature by health workers in rural areas ” project this second visit will be by Dr Martin De Saulles ( University of Brighton ). Potenza Atiogbe ( UK Uganda Steering Group Lead ) and Marisa Martinez Ortiz ( Librarian- Surrey and Sussex ) who will deliver more in depth workshops about Web 2.0 technologies, e.g. RSS feeds, wikis and blogs and e-learning with a focus on libraries.

My thanks to Potenza for this update.

  1. Hi – this is just to request further information (detailed topic list / agenda and ideally the course materials) relating to Marisa Martinez Ortiz’s in depth workshops about Web 2.0 technologies, e.g. RSS feeds, wikis and blogs and e-learning with a focus on libraries. We might be interested in doing something similar, perhaps with Marisa.
