Convocation day!

 While I technically received my degree last September, the actual convocation day for Athabasca is today for all graduates who completed their degrees between June 2021 and May 2022. The ceremony is virtual and I am curious to see how it will be implemented.  I am certainly taking notes for my own work ;-)AU sent us a care package with various festive items, some physical goods (cap, tassel,

Year-in-Review: Goodreads

Well, I far exceeded my anticipated books to-read in 2021, but many of them were comic books :-) I did read a few things for class, and a few other fiction and non-fiction alike for pleasure, but many comics were read.  I had wanted to finish the relaunch Star Trek Voyager series but that didn't happen.  Definitely in 2022!

it's convocation time!

I guess it's official! I get to be at convocation next year!  Even though I was technically done with my degree in September of 2021, I'll be one of the graduates at next year's convocation, which will again be virtual.  I think that it's definitely a good call to be virtual given the uncertainties of COVID that still exist. To be honest, it's also a big of a weight off my shoulders.

Review: Situated Learning

Situated Learning by Jean Lave My rating: 4 of 5 stars A book I've been meaning to read ever since I was introduced to communities of practice in 2005.  It only took a dissertation as an excuse to pull it off the bookshelf.  Not a bad introduction if you're looking for a historical view of CoPs. I am sure there are other books on my bookshelf where the

New school seal?

It's been a  while since I've paid attention to the school's seal. I used to see it all the time when I worked for Media Services (in front of podiums, and often engraved in wood), but today I noticed that we have a new design, with our school colors, and our school emblem (the beacon, which is a lighthouse). The previous seals seemed to have been based on the Commonwealth's flag.

Review: Blended Learning: Research Perspectives, Volume 2

Blended Learning: Research Perspectives, Volume 2 by Anthony G. PiccianoMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting read. It's the next volume in the series on Blended learning.  This one was easier to find, but I still got it via ILL - same research project as I mentioned in my blog post yesterday.  I've often wondered why books like this exist in this day and age. Each chapter is basically

Review: Blended Learning: Research Perspectives Vol. 1

Blended Learning: Research Perspectives Vol. 1 by Anthony G. PiccianoMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad read if you want some historical info on Blended learning.  I had a hard time finding this book, so I got it via interlibrary loan. It may seem a little dated, but I think it's useful for setting the scene for Blended learning.  I went through this with a specific research topic

Handbook of Narrative Inquiry: Mapping a Methodology by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars While I didn't read this book cover-to-cover I did find quite a few chapters quite useful in thinking about and designing my narrative inquiry project. View all my reviews

Snow day!

Looks like we're having another Nor'Easter! How much snow this will bring is anyone's guess. I guess that we'll just have to wait and see.  Here is a meme that I created last week when we had another Nor'Easter (yup! that's right).  I wonder if I should tag this as #PhDLife :p
