1/ Today I read Swan, Scarbrough, & Ziebro (2015) Liminal roles as a source of creative agency in management: Continue reading “Liminal Roles as a Source of Creative Agency in Management: An Article Summary“
With many of these things floating around, the question of “Who are you?” or better yet, “Who am I?” has always been a struggle. What do I tell people — What I think they want to hear? What I think may be interesting? What I am thinking about right now? How my passions are leading me forward, though in many different directions all at once? All or more of them? I would not be thinking about this at all unless Continue reading “An Unofficial CV, at Least for #DigiWriMo“
She took Dave Cormier’s @ introductory #rhizo15 post, Learning Subjectives – designing for when you don’t know where you’re going:
Build learning subjectives: How do we design our own or others learning when we don’t know where we are going? How does that free us up? What can we get done with subjectives that can’t be done with objectives?
and answered it.
Her learning subjectives Continue reading “Learning through Liminality #rhizo15“
Ok, to be fair, most of the Tweets I do every day (yes, every day) are archived here; they just do not appear on the home page. Nevertheless, I have not developed or shared or expressed any of my thinking here in some time, oddly enough since I completed my doctoral work.
Yes, I am busy. Who is not? I feel pulled in more directions than I can count due to my full-time work as a project manager in healthcare, an adjunct professor teaching graduate research, and hobby engaging in research on how people develop their identity and self-expression through troublesome thresholds concept experiences, especially related to social media and online networks.
Do I have time to blog? Enough to say that could not be better stated in 140 characters? Only time will tell, but with so many interesting people here who are already sharing, supporting, and engaging in research in this area, it is time for me to more explicitly engage in this community and see what I can learn along the way that will improve my teaching, research, work, and overall satisfaction thinking about and implementing stronger connections and networks.
So, here we go!
As a result, my doctoral thesis, entitled Navigating Liminality: The Experience of Troublesome Periods and Distance During Doctoral Study, is being printed and bound at the university.
I especially want to thank my supervisor, Professor Malcolm Tight, (standing next to me in the image below), and my examiners Professor Paul Trowler (in the left on the picture) and Dr. Margaret Kiley (who attended remotely from Australia). Alice Jesmont (also in the picture below) has been invaluable in her assistance while I attended Lancaster University, along with Dr. Gale Parchoma, who started off as part of my supervisory team before moving on to the University of Calgary.
I am now working at publishing some of the results of my work, so hope to have lots more to share. Thanks goes to all who have supported, guided, and helped me along the way, about which I will also speak more in the near future.
