Profile statement

I hold M.Ed (science education) majoring in Environment Education, B.Ed (Hons) Biology/chemistry and a Diploma in education (Biology/Chemistry). Professional experience has been gained with varied practical and development roles, mainly within environment related issues. Believing in a mature, stimulating, gender sensitive and just society, which takes into consideration cross cutting issues like; poverty, the environment, MDG’s and HIV/AIDS. I am now looking forward to making a significant contribution to the natural resource management field at national, regional and international level, preferably in the areas of sustainable development, the attainment of MDG’s , poverty alleviation and mitigation of climate change.

Key Qualifications

In 13 years experience in environmental management and conservation, awareness raising and advocacy, production of training materials, proposal writing and co-ordination (including monitoring and evaluation), 8 years were spent working with NGO’s in environment Programmes focusing on sustainable use of natural resources, energy conservation and waste management. Other areas included wetland management and conservation, climate change and its mitigation, integration of environment education into education curricula and facilitating at workshops and conferences in environment related topics. My research for my M.Ed was essentially on how land tenure systems in Uganda affect the management and conservation practices in wetlands. It highlighted different management and conservation practices in place, the capacity of the mandated bodies i.e.National Environment Management Authourity NEMA,Wetland Inspection Division WID and local governments to manage and conserve wetlands, interpretation of the various statues governing natural resources management and the communities’ perceptions on wetland management and conservation. Research has also been done in water quality of freshwater in rural areas in which the suitability of the water for household use was assessed in comparison to the set standards of the world Health Organization (WHO). The survey looked at stiochiometric properties of the water, concentration of trace elements, turbidity and other chemical properties.

Current Interest

currently am interested in Education for sustainable Development This is a concept that envisions a society that will use our natural resources in a sustainable way.One of the driving forces that will lead to this kind of society is EDUCATION. However there is a need to reorient our approach to our learner, make curricula more relevant and been seen to solve local problems.

Notes and Feedback from my Wiki Neighbours

  • Oliyotia, seebo.
  • All the following are in your tutorials, but I put them here for you as a kind of learning shortcut. Earlier posts on bottom, later ones on top.
  • Here is another tip. Uploading Pictures. You have a picture on your computer. You want to put it onto a page you are editing. Remember where it is and what it is called on your computer. On your page, in edit mode, you name the file by whatever name you want to call it. Do not use a generic name like "My_picture" or it will get easily mixed up on the WikiEd site. Best is to put your name in the file name you choose. Make sure the extension is one of the many Wiki can handle, like gif, png or jpg. Put it inside two sets of square brackets. At the beginning, type in the word image followed by a colon followed by your image file name. Then save and that puts your page into publishing mode, and you have a web page again. The image file name should appear in red, indicating that it has not been used already. Click on it and a new page will appear that has easy instructions abut uploading the file from your computer. Do it. The image gets its own page. When you see it, go to the bottom of that image page; click on your page name and there it will be.--Phil Bartle 13:34, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Another tip is to borrow from your Wiki neighbours. Browse around other User pages. If there is anything you like, just copy it and paste it in to your user page. Make any modification you need, and there you are. --Phil Bartle 03:15, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
  • If you have not seen it yet, I recommend that you look at the youtube video clip on Wikis. In WikiEd, as in the video, the most important buttons are edit and save. A third button, Link, is not quite the same on WikiEd. To make a sub page, in edit mode, you simply give it a name. put forward slashes around it, then two square brackets in front and after the result. When you save, the word will be in red. Click on it and it will tell you there is no such page. As soon as you start editing, the sub page is created. --Phil Bartle 03:05, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
