“Doing” a Doctorate – week 24

Have to say that the experience of presenting at the Open Educational Resources (OER) conference was pretty kick ass…. what? That is SO a doctoral level language phrase. It was an awesome experience and privilege to be invited to present to delegates who had travelled to the conference from all …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week two

I’ve spent this week waiting to be able to access the learning content of my EdD programme, but until my references come through admin won’t give me access. This is the acceptable consequence of applying more than a month after the doctoral programme began. What is utterly ridiculous however, is …

Doctoral studies – week one AGAIN!

This week has been a bit….crazy! I decided to switch from a PhD to an EdD as it suited my research focus more. Problem number one – I had to write and submit a research proposal VERY quickly. Problem number two – the EdD programme began in Oct. Much to …
