Entrepreneuriat : les jeunes tentés, les parents réticents

Par Fabien Gallet. A l’occasion de la Journée Nationale des jeunes qui s’est tenue le 20 novembre dernier, le Club des Entrepreneurs a publié une étude sur l’envie d’entreprendre des 18-27 ans. Résultat, les jeunes sont tentés mais leurs parents beaucoup moins.
Monter sa propre entreprise ? Une idée qui plait de plus en plus aux jeunes de 18 à 27 ans. C’est ce que le site internet « Le Club des Entrepreneurs » a révélé dans une récente étude menée auprès de 1 500 jeunes âgées de 18 à 27 ans et de 2500 parents. Voir l'article...

Skills Inventory

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/CRW.jpgBy Lee Skallerup Bessette. One of the most difficult things I’ve had to do (or, more appropriately, am still in the process of doing) is turning my CV (which is adequately epic in length for an aspiring academic but completely inappropriate for any other job) into a Resumé (a painfully brief document that every other job in the world wants from you). Because it’s what I do, I crowdsourced a Google Doc full of annotated resources. Read more...

Sustainability commandment #5

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/green.jpg?itok=D8D3DXB7By G. Rendell. Without good, clean air, any one of us is dead in a matter of minutes.  Without good clean water, in days.  Without good, fertile (I hesitate to say "clean") soil, in months or  years.  None of these resources is infinitely available.  Each has a capacity to restore itself to good condition, but that capacity is both time-dependent and tightly constrained.  And yet thousands of activities that each of us living in developed societies take for granted poison the soil, the air and the water on a daily basis.  We're killing ourselves, and we've got to stop kidding ourselves. Read more...

Sustainability commandment #4

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/green.jpg?itok=D8D3DXB7By G. Rendell. If advanced society is to continue, much less flourish, it must do so on this planet.  Yet preservation of the planet and its natural resources isn’t what we practice, and it isn’t what we teach (or preach, as you prefer).  Instead, what we teach is that consumption of natural resources is the mechanism of the good life, and that ever faster, ever more efficient consumption is the objective of good business. Read more...

#DearDePauw

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. Hashtags are everywhere. We use them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and yes, even in blog post titles. The ubiquitous hashtag (it's okay if you call it a pound sign) is where we go on the social web for connection-making, conversations, and to mix it up in either asynchronous and/or synchronous exchanges. Beginning with Twitter, hashtags are now present all over the social web. More...

Who's In Charge, Here?

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. I have often wondered about the way librarians use the word “library.” Sometimes we are referring to a building (“the library will be open until 2 a.m. during finals”), but more often we use it as if it’s a collective being that has agency. The library is offering a new program. The library has to cancel more journals. Read more...

Note-Taking in Graduate School

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/Screen%20Shot%202011-12-12%20at%2012.29.48%20PM.png?itok=ITDqfJNPBy Justin Dunnavant. As graduate students, we are confronted with the daunting task of collecting, consolidating, and absorbing large amounts of information. Few universities actually take the time to train you on how do this, and as result taking notes and keeping track of them can quickly become overwhelming. There are dozens of books that discuss the importance of note taking and offer different methods and strategies to become an effective note-taker. Read more...
