    We missed the most interesting and important lecture of Crisis mapping. Anyway, that of social networks was the one that catch my interest.

  2. Nampanzira Dorothy says:

    It was so beautiful.
    I loved the multi disciplinarity of todays lectures.

    Most especially the social maping. It was a whole new experience. i would like to learn more and employ it in the animal resources world.

    Today’s session was remarkable. It has really shown us somethings which we never imagined could be done. The involvement of experts from social and Engineering backgrounds talking about environment is remarkable and exemplary. The presentations on Social networks, humanitarian crisis, cholera remote sensing could be an excellent example to interdisciplinary collaborations.

  4. Maurice BYUKUSENGE says:

    Today the presentation on social network made my day. “Every thing is social network” and yet social networks are different from connected groups! Now I know why.
    But still, I think I am falling for GIS !

  5. Gaspard Mahangaiko says:

    The presentation on Social Network was fantastic. As Dean, i will use it to better understand the organization of my Faculty. The use of Social Network Analysis to understand how the disease is spread is remarkable.

    Day 3 of the TELI, 2013, It is evidence that every scientific field of study /disciple has a great potential to solve, prevent and predict disease (pathogens) which are causing different forms of illness in human and animals in one way or another. The lesson and Message I take home from the presentations in a nutshell is that solving health problems (human, animal and Environment) should be look at through interdisciplinary approach, if we want a long standing and sustainable solutions.


    How to study humanitarian crisis? this was one of my focus today sessions. Some controversial methodology according the sensibility/political flexibility: what are the indications of deliberative polls in conflicts zones/post conflicts zones?
    The most controversial statement: in the 21st century, UN humanitarian assistance can be the most corrupted depending of the area of operation: DRC with its minerals scandals should be a case study…however, the facilitator was very wise/diplomatic to go far out of political approaches… anyway, time/history will tell us…
    GIS tips are cross-cutting issues, interdisciplinary, “incontournables”…
    Finally, the successful story of interdisciplinary collaboration about “Epidemiological engineering”, very relevant and unique.

    I am very exciting in session with social network analysis that I may share and apply in my organization where I am the head of human resources department
    In addition, GIS exercise was helpful for me to apply some technique to draw the map but off course, I expect to receive more support from the supporter during future application
    It is exciting presentation that I also learnt from OH bottleneck and Village Zero Project. Really interesting that some potential future for collaboration was presented at the end of this session
    The food today was the best during the 1st three days of the workshop. But I would like to recommend if you can provide rice during lunch that much better for us, who eat rice daily in the country. Anyway, all is great!

    Gain many informations and new knowledges regarding social network and humanitarian crisis. Furthermore, Cholera remote sensing lecture provided some ideas to applying them in my research interest which are Leptospirosis and Brucellosis. Additional hand-on practical on GIS from Dr Magaly is really appreciated.

    Very interesting talks today. However, there was not enough time given for questions and answers.
