    Who are the working poor?

    in Radio

    The show will explore the hardships that many working Americans face daily earning minimum pay.  These Americans are often victims of systematic forms of usary and encounter difficulties rising above poverty lines.  Does God have a plan or are christians supposed to remain in poverty? It is often said that Jesus was made poor so that we might become rich. What does that mean for us as Christians today?  Jesus also said that the poor would be with us always, so how do we distinguish between that scripture and what God wants us to have? We will examine ways to transform the lives of the working poor while exploring the biblical principles of tithing, giving and receiving.

    The Choice Game

    in Christianity

    In today's society the process of choosing has crippled the people. Well, why do you say that? Because you never make a decision to choose and then you spend a lifetime making excuses for where you are. Before you decide, you must choose. You must know how to move forward.....just move. I am convinced that people stay in "Choice" mode and get ran over in life. This message will jumpstart your life and take you out of neutral. Get ready to have a purpose driven life. Just as you made a decision for Christ.....continue in the faith.

    in Education

    Please join Lynn Dierking, Lena Hosking and Michelle Mileham, as we introduce Module 3 of the SED 583 course--Sociocultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning.  In this module we will explore culture in more depth, learning about social stratification, agency, social structure and social institutions; examining the dance between the power of human agency and social structures and how people work to maintain agency and sustain their own agendas that may be different from those of the establishments within which they are operating. We will start the show by talking about the final class project.  Our very special guest will be Dr. Scott Pattison, Research & Evaluation Strategist, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) & Director for Administration, Institute for Learning Innovation, Portland, OR.  Scott will be talking about his Master and Doctoral research, focused on families, inside and outside OMSI.  As a graduate of this same program, I'm sure he will be happy to answer more general questions also.

    SED 583 - Socio-Cultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning Intro to Module 4

    in Education

    In Module 4 we will be discussing the socio-cultural dimensions of institutions, moving beyond the nominal definition of them as organizations housed in buildings, to a socio-cultural definition in which institutions include all types of socially constructed organizations: families, museums, schools, communities, and society. Some of the questions we will discuss include: How do groups, communities and societies use and appropriate the resources of free-choice learning institutions to support their “institutional” needs, interests and identities? How have cultural institutions historically supported/inhibited the socio-cultural dimensions and outcomes of learning?  What strategies and approaches have they employed to try to be socio-culturally relevant?  Our special guest is Laura Huerta Migus, who took the helm as executive director of the Association of Children's Museums (ACM) this past June. Prior to that, Laura was Director of Professional Development and Inclusion Initiatives at the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) where she previously also held the position of Director of Equity and Diversity. Laura also served on the staff at ACM from 2004-2006, as a program officer for education and operations.  Laura Huerta Migus is a nonprofit professional with more than a decade of experience in professional development, technical assistance, and grant management with a special emphasis on informal learninglearning.environments and community change efforts.  She is currently working with institutions nationally to help them become more culturally competent and responsible so that they can be effective change agents in their communities.  I think it will be a great conversation!
