Donna Shalala's thoughts - Wemedia

Always refreshing to hear someone articulate thoughts and spiels you've preached and in this case they don't get any bigger than the former secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala, now president of Miami University.

Ms Shalala, being interviewed at the WeMedia gathering spoke about the curricula, she uses to lecture her students.

It's a paperless environment, with knowledge being shaped online on Blackboard.

And it's a changing curricula. By the year end she noted as and when new things happen that gets pulled in.

Classes are blogged, and there is a heavy reliance on Facebook, which is monitored.

Importantly in this instant society, students she said have to be more aware of what they do and say.
