Three recent blog posts on Beyond Niamey, plus 2 more on Multidisciplinary Perspectives that may be of interest to some on this list:

Beyond Niamey

1) VOA Hausa Digital Content Editor (a job posting and the potential to upgrade Hausa text to Boko orthography) 6 September 2016

2) International Literacy Day: Let them write! (literacy is more than just reading - in part an answer to criticism of literacy programs in African languages) 8 September 2016

3) Internationalizing computer science in Africa (internationalization of higher education as an avenue to promoting internationalization of the computer science curriculum?) 30 September 2016

Multidisciplinary Perspectives

4) Literacy Day double take (there were 2 literacy days this year, one of them for indigenous literacy in Australia) 8 September 2016

5) Reimagining “language barrier” (a plea to reframe "barrier" as a "gap" or "divide" to be bridged, rather than as something to be "broken") 15 September 2016
