The doctoral Winchester plan

If you've ever seen the movie Shaun of the Dead, a humorous take on the surviving the zombie apocalypse, you are familiar with the Winchester plan.  The Winchester is a local (to the protagonist) pub, and it key to surviving the zombie apocalypse - according to the protagonist, is taking a short skip-and-a-hop to the local pub (after doing a couple of short tasks) and waiting for help to arrive

EDDE 806: Epilogue (of reboots and alternative universes)

I guess this is my "806 is dead, long live 806!" post ;-) One of the final requirements for EDDE 806 is to:Create a final blog post linking to the 6 earlier posts and providing a final reflection, feedback and any recommendations on the course as a whole.For those who are keeping score at home, other course requirements included the following:Present a 30-45 minute presentation on their proposal

EDDE 806 - Post XIII - It's the end of the semester, and I feel fine

Alright folks!  That's a wrap for EDDE 806 for this semester!  The semester went out with a bang with three members of my cohort presenting their dissertation proposal work in progress (and for those on the east coast the session was a little long - after a long day - but well worth it!).The three proposed research projects are  Kim's, titled "Student Satisfaction Levels among Canadian

EDDE 806 - Post XII - Of Navigators and Succession...

Last evening we had our penultimate EDDE 806 session for this season. On tap for the evening we had Neera's presentation (originally of Cohort 6, but now firmly "one of our own" in cohort 7), and a presentation by Stephanie.One question that came to mind, outside of the context of these presentations, was how long do EdD students stick around in 806 after they have met the requirements of the course?

EDDE 806 - Post XI - Get your Waldorf on...

EDDE 806 - Post X - it marks the spot!

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,

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
