Jeffrey’s Twitter Updates for 2009-03-31

When I got to upstate NY after my trip back from Ireland and the UK, I was shocked to see it snowed today in the Catskills. # Continental fed us well. Drinks, snacks, hot lunch, drinks again, then a sandwich and a final drink service. They are the best! # Arrived in Newark to [...]

The Continental flight before mine finally left, and my Continental plane just landed. Hope they clean and service it quickly! # I feel odd coming back from Ireland without anything wool. Did see lots of sheep and new lambs, however. # Surprisingly, I think England is cheaper than Ireland for food and drink. What [...]

Malahide Castle

I uploaded some photos of Malahide Castle, outside Dublin, which I visited yesterday. Can’t quite imagine what it must have been like for a single family to live in a castle for 800 years, only to lose it to taxes and then finally die out (last month, as a matter of fact).

Enjoyed seeing Dublin yesterday a lot more than I thought I would. Saw the National Museum and then a wonderful exhibit on Yeats. #

I have a lot of blogging to catch up on and a research project to formulate for Lancaster due in May. UK PhD programs waste no time! # Just arrived in Dublin. My plane was the last one out of the terminal at Manchester. Not even 25% full. Looking forward to a few days [...]

We are having a Skype-based presentation from somebody in Mexico right now. The world is a smaller place all the time. # Just heard 2 interesting presentations from current PhD students who are doing creative research in technology enhanced learning. # Finally able to connect to the wifi at Lancaster. Would have been able [...]

Lancaster Doctoral Residential, 2009

Here I am in the middle of my residential in the northwest of England, where I have recently started as a doctoral student studying toward a PhD in E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL or ERTEL). 

After teaching and learning for so many years, why not focus on the PhD? After all, while [...]
