It's been a long time since I've blogged about something educational, other than my classes of course. With one thing down (and a million more to go), I decided to take a little breather to see what's accumulated on Pocket over these past few months. I saw a post by Martin Weller on Institutional Memory, and it seemed quite pertinent to my day to day work existence these past six or so

This past Thursday we had our official EDDE 806 session (on Monday, Norine did a mock proposal defense, which I wasn't able to attend, but luckily it's archived for later viewing). In any case, in this session we heard from Renate who reported in on her ideas for a dissertation topic, and there were a ton of interesting things about process that were shared by Susan and others.Renate is looking to
EDDE 806 - Post IX - About that 'in-process' presentation...
Yesterday evening I presented where I currently am in my dissertation proposal. I am not sure if Susan was joking or not about 2, 3, 4 years being the 'in process' time to get a dissertation done and defended, but I certainly hope that it's not that long! I am aiming for May 2019 at the latest for mine.That said, earlier this week I did a few dry runs for the presentation I did last evening,
Scholarly networking panel at Winter Symposium
Part II of January documenting. This one is the virtually connecting panel on scholarly networking.
Winter Symposium vConnecting - Digital Literacies
A little self-documenting for this post. A few weeks ago (was it really that long?) I was in a couple of virtually connecting sessions. Considering that the winter symposium was at URI I could have gone in person! Maybe next time :-) This one is a hallway convo w Renee Hobbs & Natasha Casey.
EDDE 806 Post VIII - Do Vulcans have emotional presence in the CoI?
Young Spock at schoolAnd we're off! The semester has begun, and this time I am "official" in EDDE 806, which means this is my last credit-bearing semester (after that I guess I will be an academic vagabond looking for completion of my own research).Last night none of our cohort presented (although that would have been an achievement if someone brave enough wanted to do it!). Instead, a more
New Year's resolution...
Happy new year to all!I thought I would start my new year with a little (PhD) humor...While I don't think I'll be graduating by the end of 2017 (wouldn't that be nice?) I would like to make considerable headway with my dissertation. This coming term (in 8 days, in-fact!) my spring semester (or as they call it in Canada "winter term") will begin. This coming winter term I am doing my final
Crazy semester, crazy year, coming to an end...

So, vacation has begun! I've gotten out my movies, video games, and comic books that I want to read, play, or view in the next 20 days until school starts again! Before that though, I wanted to have a quick look back, a year end review if you will, at this past academic year. Wow... Now that was a crazy year! Yes, there was a lot going on in the global and political arenas, but (just
Conflict of interest?
I was thinking about this the other day... I was reading the requirements for setting up review committees for my dissertation proposal and for my ultimate dissertation defense. One of the forms that people on committees need to fill out is a statement on conflict of interest. This isn't unusual since I see it on the peer review side of things, be it in peer review journals, or (more recently)
The vConnecting about Cupcakes and Pokemon!
Another docublog from virtually connecting from a few weeks ago, at OpenEd Berlin with Alec Couros. This one has the innovation of being the first "pop up" virtually connecting session. Enjoy!
