For some of us, moving to Angola and giving up our jobs and careers can be difficult to get used to. However, it’s also chance to learn and do new things we never had the time for in our busy lives. Here are a few things we have found to help you make the most of your free time…
There’s a job opening posted by the British Embassy. They are looking for a project manager.
For those who may not qualify and would like to start a course in that field or whatever strikes your fancy, members recommend MOOC (massive open online courses) – which are basically very short, flexible, free, online courses. Just perusing the hundreds of courses offered – The Brain and Space, Decision Making in a Complex World, Computer Programming are just a few that are offered. (Perhaps if I sign up for Understanding Computer Games I will finally know what my children are talking about!)
And for our members who are interested in an on-line education Accredited Schools Online has a helpful guidebook which analyzes “the current state of online education, where it stands and where it’s heading.” They “take an in-depth look at the benefits and experience of an online education; choosing an online school or program; the methods, technologies and resources employed by schools in program and course delivery; online learning and students with disabilities; tips for student success; and many others. You’ll also find helpful observations and advice from online education professionals.”
And finally, if online course aren’t your thing and your prefer your teacher face to face, there is a Basic Photography course being offered by Gerrit Laubscher in Condominium Caju. The course will cover camera basics and exposure, aperture and shutter speed, composition, light metering and much more. Contact Gerrit at 939-161-002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Another great way to spend your time is volunteering and we will post information for those in need of your time or donations in the next week or two.
If you have any online courses that you can recommend or charities that you know need help, please let us know and we can pass on the information.
