Framing: Learn How to Debate and Create Powerful Messages Prof dr Hans de Bruijn is Professor of Public Administration in the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management at Delft University of Technology. His research focuses on governance issues at the intersection of politics, management and technology, such as decision-making about large-scale infrastructure projects, the privatisation and deregulation of utilities, safety and security, river management, regulation and inspection, managing professionals and various types of government policy relating to technology. Such issues are usually characterised by a high degree of complexity. Governance involves a network of interdependent actors who behave strategically and know how to play the game. Actors who deal with governance issues need to possess a high tolerance for complexity in order to understand these issues and come up with appropriate governance arrangements.

Reflections on Learning Design Process Models 1 | Simon Cross Over the last month, Rebecca Galley, Paul Mundin and I have been reflecting on a range of our recent meetings and project related activities (including meeting with colleagues from Birmingham City and Gloucestershire, with our external partners, and OU colleagues). This post shares some of this ‘reflection-in-progress’ and as such uses languages familiar to those exploring new structures for curriculum/learning design processes. Here are two different draft representations to help communicate our interpretation of recent work. I think it important that such models seek to weave together the less formal practices and processes (such as design activities) with more formal and necessary demands: If you click on the images an enlarged version should load. By way of explanation, these representations were the outcome of our thinking about a range of questions. Does a business case, or any related business approval stage, need any pedagogic information or design? Like this: Like Loading...

UK Law and Kite Ariel Photography Article See also the larger article on Kite Aerial Photography KAP stands for Kite Aerial Photography. So what is the legal position on this in the UK. You can fly up to 60 metres above the ground (196ft) without permission and above this with permission of the CAA, which when granted is usually for a period of 6 months for the location, but you need to apply 28 days before. There is no restriction on photography from a kite, from a model plane you have to have permission from the CAA, if the plane weighs over 7kgs and you are doing it for reward. There are defined radio frequencies that are exempt from controls and can be used.

Kite Aerial Photography and UK Law This document provides references to some primary documents that define the legal framework within which Kite Aerial Photography operates in the UK. It may be useful in answering such questions as: is a kite legally an aircraft? how high can I fly my kite/rig combination? One key piece of UK legislation is the Air Navigation Order 2000 (otherwise known as Statutory Instrument 2000/1562).

The second important statement is in article 86 which contains rules for Balloons, kites, airships, gliders and parascending parachutes. subject to the proviso: Although kites weighing less than 2kg were exempted from this rule in earlier ANO's, they no longer are because the third statement, in article 132, states: Band 3 (35MHz) is restricted to:
