Lots of Debriefing Ahead

As I am sitting on the plane ready to fly back to New York, after my residential at Lancaster University with time in Edinburgh, by Loch Ness, and Portree on the Isle of Skye (with a drive through the snow!), I am finally able to begin processing my trip. I have blogged less than I [...]

Wondering why football (soccer) is not more popular in the US. # Wonder why that guy playing for Bayern is wearing a mask? # Eating in the pub at the Holiday Inn at Glasgow Airport watching football. Seems they are beginning to call it soccer in some locals. Pity. # Just got to the [...]

How do people handle this?!?!?! # We are nearing the end of our cohort [...]

Listening to my cohort colleagues discuss their initial research proposal ideas. Fascinating. # Now, the focus is considering the Confirmation Document, which is due in a year and comes after our final 2 content-based modules. # We are watching a video conference (via Skype) of a current doctoral student and what his experience is [...]

Proposal to Discuss in Class
