5e soirée des partenaires

Sur le thème de la fabrication additive (3D)

Jeudi 29 juin a eu lieu la cinquième Soirée des partenaires de l’école, organisée par le service des Relations industrielles. L’événement a rassemblé environ quatre-vingt personnes, industriels, représentants du secteur économique régional, universitaires et étudiants.

Une table-ronde, animée par Fabien SOULIÉ, enseignant-chercheur, a abordé le thème de « La fabrication additive dans les applications industrielles, citoyennes, de la recherche et de la formation ».

Stéphane ABED, président de la société Poly shape, Yann LEFEBVRE, président du FabLab « LabSud », André CHRYSOCHOOS, directeur du centre PRO3D et Christian JORGENSEN, professeur au CHU de Montpellier et directeur de l’unité INSERM “Cellules souches, plasticité cellulaire, médecine régénératrice et immunothérapies”, sont intervenus pour partager leurs expériences et échanger sur les applications de ces technologies.

Les diverses interventions des invités ont permis de montrer le spectre très large des champs d’applications de ces nouvelles techniques de mise en œuvre de la matière, allant de l’industrie de pointe à la recherche médicale avancée, sans oublier les applications standardsaccessibles à tous ” précise Fabien Soulié.

Les présentations ont aussi su faire ressortir toutes les étapes de la démarche de conception, de dimensionnement et d’optimisation, préalables à la phase d’impressionproprement dite ” ajoute André Chrysochoos, concluant que “la fabrication additive est apparue aux participants comme une solution complémentaire aux techniques classiques de fabrication, mais possédant ses propres limites “.

The Advanced Integrated Communication Program 2016 – 2017

Course Outline and Method:

The Advanced Integrated Communication Programme is a part-time post-graduate Course designed and meant specifically for working professionals. The programme focuses on different aspects of the Communication space where design and implementation will reflect success. It looks at the subject of Communications in an integrated manner where different parts of the field are not broken up but need to be consolidated to give the right impact. Effective Communication necessitates that all Marketing Communication elements like the Public Relations Campaigns, Sales Promotions and others must blend into the larger Marketing objective for the Client. This integration will ensure that the organization delivers a ‘One Voice – One Message’ Campaign and manage effective change through Communication.

Hence irrespective of which individual domain like Advertising or Media that practitioners work in, the resultant impact will always be larger when we look at the integration of all Communication alternatives. Hence this course addresses the practitioners of the Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations, Media, Production and similar domains.

The Course comprises 25 Modules. seminars and workshops consisting of a total of 200 sessions / 40 credits. This Module completion makes the student eligible for the Diploma. Students will have to attend week-end class, do assignments and projects which are research-based to enhance their understanding of the subject. A major part of the Programme shall be conducted from the basis of Practice to Theory and on the basis of Case Studies to drive the learning to participants who have good work experience.

Eligibility:

  • A Graduate in any discipline and Work experience of 2 years in a non-staff function (executive or supervisory function desired).
  • Organizational sponsorship for this program preferred but not compulsory

Class Timings (and Location):

  • Saturdays: 3.30 PM – 7.45 PM (4 hours contact sessions) and Sundays: 10 AM – 5 PM (6 hours contact sessions).
  • The program will be conducted over 200 sessions of 400 Hours in total.
  • The program shall be conducted in our State of the art facility at either the XIC Campus situated at the St. Xavier�s School campus or at The XIC Campus situated in St. Xavier’s College, both located at Dhobitalao, Mumbai

75% attendance is mandatory in each Module. This is a necessary criteria for successful award of the Diploma.

Participants will develop a holistic and mature approach to solve all Marketing Communication issues. The Integration of this type of a holistic nature will give organizations more sound solutions and better Campaigns. Employees of all Communication or related organizations largely stand to benefit from this approach and this program.

All modules in this course are obligatory. The Management reserves the right, as and when necessary, to

Students coming on the course who wish to familiarise themselves with the basic concepts of public relations should read Tench, R. Yeomans, L. (Eds.). (2009). Exploring public relations (2nd ed.). Harlow, Essex: Pearson Education Ltd.

We suggest that all students buy Heath, R. (Ed.). (2010). The SAGE handbook of public relations (2nd ed.). Thousand Oaks: Sage. This text covers a wide range of theory, research and practice in the field of public relations and will be of great use throughout the course.

Example timetable

The timetable below is a typical example, but your own timetable may be different.

The first two years of the course run from October until May, with breaks at Christmas and Easter. During this time students are expected to complete three modules in Year 1 and three modules in Year 2 – a total of six modules. The final seven months are devoted to the preparation of a 12,000-word Dissertation presenting an independent piece of research conducted by the student.

There is a three-day residential school every year and students are required to attend at least one during the course of their studies. It is estimated that around ten to twelve hours a week studying is required while studying a module.

Marketing Communication

Become A Marketing Leader

Students and faculty give you a sneak peek at what you ll learn in the Marketing Communications program at Emerson College from the internship opportunities all over Boston to real-life experience in the classroom. Emerson keeps students current with today s industry trends.

How does a person’s cultural background influence his/her consumer behavior? Why does someone choose one brand of flavored water over another? What are the underlying elements of a successful product launch?

These are the kinds of questions you’ll be exploring—and answering—as a student in Emerson’s Department of Marketing Communication. Recently named #5 on the list of top 10 U.S. colleges to get a marketing degree, Emerson will have you working alongside faculty members who are also seasoned marketers. You’ll quickly learn how to apply sophisticated marketing principles in a variety of real-world contexts—from the arts, sports, and entertainment industries to consumer product companies and nonprofits.

While the knowledge and skills you’ll gain in the classroom are pivotal, some of the most valuable experiences and worthwhile collaborations you’ll have at Emerson will happen outside of class. Whether your interests are in strategic marketing, marketing communications, or entrepreneurship, Emerson’s Department of Marketing Communication offers you a curriculum uniquely designed to prepare you as a future marketing leader.

Marriage & divorce

Marriage and divorce are both common experiences. In Western cultures, more than 90 percent of people marry by age 50. Healthy marriages are good for couples’ mental and physical health. They are also good for children; growing up in a happy home protects children from mental, physical, educational and social problems. However, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. The divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.

Adapted from the Encyclopedia of Psychology

Research on Marriage & Divorce

Separation and divorce are emotionally difficult events, but it is possible to have a healthy breakup.

Keep your romantic partnership in good working order by talking openly, keeping it interesting and seeking help if needed.

Research on what makes a marriage work shows that people in a good marriage have completed these psychological “tasks.”

Parents of a “blended family” face plenty of challenges, but there are things you can do to make communication easier and help children adjust to their new reality.

Scientists have found that the psychological and social aspects of committed relationships between same-sex partners largely resemble those of heterosexual partnerships, that living in a state where same-sex marriage is outlawed can lead to chronic social stress and mental health problems, and that same-sex couples are as fit and capable parents as heterosexual couples.

Getting Help

In the United States, couples marrying for the first time have approximately a fifty percent chance of divorcing. Psychologists are helping couples’ “I do” last a lifetime through development and application of scientifically tested relationship education programs.

Psychologists who work as parenting coordinators help moms and dads keep the peace.

Just Say It

Ann Dean meet for lunch every Wednesday to chat about world events, American culture, mental health and most especially, interpersonal communication. We created this blog we call Just Say It as a short course in human relations. We feel most relationships suffer from poor communication. From family and friends to customer services and strangers, we can all benefit from the words of wisdom we have collected from the famous, the not-so-famous and the anonymous. When all else fails: Just Say It!

Ann’s Introduction

My goal with our blog is to share everything that I have learned and un-learned about those two entities (communication and relationships) in my eighty plus years on the planet.

Dean tells me my style is ‘personal’… so be it. It ain’t gonna change at this stage of my life journey.

Ours is not a dry list of do’s and don’ts. On the contrary, Dean’s and my varied life experiences provide a richness we want to share via the personal, true antidotes, case histories and actual adventures seldom found in blogs about communication and relationships.

Every relationship requires communication in one form or another. Each interaction with another person or group, be it family, work colleague or a volunteer setting, is a form of relationship… think: the bank teller, sister, uncle, friend, neighbor and / or partner, spouse.

Our language is words. Yet, communication is much more than the words. Consider tone of voice, timing, body language, facial expressions, timing and listening… listening is the quiet side of communication. Yes, our title is Just Say It! Yet, we do not advocate simply blurting the words without careful and thoughtful evaluation. Dean often speaks of kindness. What a lovely word! Even when we feel angry or resentful or fearful or sad, it is always appropriate to speak firmly and kindly.

I like the concept of empathy; consider another’s point of view. Say your words with the thought of what it might be like to walk in the other’s moccasins.

Dean’s Introduction

No one can read your mind. No one can hear your thoughts. People only understand you when you say the words out loud that are formulated in your mind. This blog is dedicated to assisting you in being specific while formulating those thoughts; and saying the words out loud that best convey what you want to communicate. It is dedicated to assisting you to communicate what you mean so others hear and understand you. It is dedicated to assisting you to learn to listen, consider and understand what others are trying to communicate to you.

Communication isn’t about winning an argument. It is about understanding. Many times it leads to agreeing to disagree. And that’s okay. Then, at least, you understand where you are in a relationship. And that’s better than being in the dark, unsure where you stand in someone else’s perception. Only then can you pro-actively work to find common ground. Or not.

This book is also about kindness. Words can wound and hurt. There is little—perhaps nothing—that cannot be communicated without kindness. Even the difficult topics—money, sex, politics, relationships, etc.—can be discussed using the very real force of kindness. Using kindness in all your communications will bring you closer to communicating what you mean because most everyone responds positively to kindness. They are more apt to hear and understand your true meaning when you use kindness as a delivery tool. Angry words are usually deflected. Kind words are usually absorbed.

You will find little science in our blog, but a great deal of timeless wisdom from history’s great thinkers. Ann’s experience as a counselor and mine as a professional communicator brings a point of view we know will prove enormously helpful to your personal and professional communications. With communication comes understanding. With understanding we can tear down walls between people and make your world a better place.

Ann accuses me of wanting to change the world. And she’s right.
