16th UNESCO workshop on Active Learning in Optics and Photonics (ALOP Nepal 2011)

isms | 19 January, 2012 11:10

16th UNESCO workshop on 
Active Learning in Optics and Photonics
(ALOP Nepal 2011)

17 - 21 December 2011, Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel, Nepal


Summary:

Daily power blackouts that lasted many hours.
A day of national strike that shutdown all road transport.
An ongoing student strike at the host university.

These types of disruption are commonplace in many developing countries that struggle with limited resources, poor infrastructure and large populations. Education initiatives such as ALOP are vitally important in these countries as they are one way of improving the quality of “people resources” which will, in time, provide the mechanism for tackling the other issues holding back social and economic development.

Normally any one of the above disruptions would have a severe negative impact on the running of any 5-day, hands-on education workshop, but in ALOP Nepal 2011, such disruptions had no impact because of the careful and adaptive planning of the local organisers. A large diesel generator with sufficient fuel supply was always available to be switched in whenever the mains electricity supply failed. The night of the national strike, additional accommodation at the venue was booked for participants who would normally travel by bus to the workshop. An off-campus venue for ALOP was chosen so as to avoid any disruption by strikes at the University campus.

So despite these significant disruptions, the ALOP workshop continued as normal, and we are pleased to report that it was highly successful and productive.
