about translation[edit]

Did we need a chinese translation? I would do this if I can and I know how to do it(I am a newbie of wiki ^^).

Feel free to translate what you think is useful. About how to do this, people at Wikiversity:Questions may have more ideas.--Piotrus 02:48, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

School vs. Portal[edit]

What's the hierarchy of schools and portals? I'd think that Portals would be like 'pretty displays', attracting people and having more eye candy then the School, but if so, the School being the main content and discussion place should have more priority then the Portal(s)?--Piotrus 02:48, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Courses[edit]

'???'Question So as not to replicate, does anyone here differentiate between "Demography" and "Social Stratification"?? Buddpaul 17:28, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Autistic Rights course[edit]

I am thinking of writing a course, but I am not sure where it belongs. This would be a course on the Neurodiversity and Autistic Rights movements, which are branches of the Disability Rights movement. Because these are current movements, this course would not belong in a history department; but it even though it concerns developmental disorders, it also does not belong in psychology. I am tackling the issues from a sociological perspective as much as I can, so I thought it might belong here.
Also, I'm new to wikiversity, so I don't really know how to go about setting up a course... if someone would like to help me, I'd be grateful for the assistance. --Luai lashire 19:47, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

I suggest starting a resource like Disability Rights and associate it with a Topic:Social movements department of School:Sociology. Just cover Neurodiversity and Autistic Rights movements as sections to get things started. Later, if it gets too long, split it out to subpages "Disability Rights/Neurodiversity" and "Disability Rights/Autistism".
Just go ahead and tackle! Things can be moved around and re-structured if need be. These are important issues. CQ 22:13, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok, then. When I get part of the course written down I'll start a page for it, and I guess it can be altered and expanded as needed. --Luai lashire 23:49, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

The page for this is up and running, albeit badly in need of various kinds of assitance and expansion. Here: The Neurodiversity Movement --Luai lashire 19:14, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Related Department[edit]

Hi all, I am currently invovled with the School of History, and especially with the Department of Historiography. This department specialises in studying how history is practiced. Sociology is a major contributor to much of what a historian does. Sociological evidence is a great tool in which the historian uses to support his theses. I am proposing that a 'Related Schools/Departments' list be added to your main page. I currently have one on the Department of Historiography's main page. If you have any questions please contact me or visit the discussion page for the department. Dctrainor 20:19, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Dignity Course[edit]

I am developing a Dignity course which may fit well here. If you like it, perhaps you can add it to the curriculum. (I hesitated to do this myself because I did not want to disturb the existing structure.)--Lbeaumont 22:42, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
