I am supposed to be doing some reading related to my dissertation this month. Actually I have done some reading but mostly related to the summer courses for 2010. I am enjoying having a break and need some time to get mentally prepared for year 2 of the Journey.
These past couple of weeks I have been working on getting prepared for a workshop and presentation I have to do at eLearning Africa. I have the workbook prepared for the workshop, the eP presentation ready and am just finalizing details. How does this relate to my doctoral studies? Directly it does not since it is not contributing to my proposal or my dissertation but it is contributing to my professional development and giving me the opportunity to leverage some of the knowledge I have gained in the program. Another aspect of this month is that it has me thinking about my future and what I want to do with a doctorate. Here is where my love of travel, education and technology can come together! Ah, but first things first...do my two courses this summer and the final one next fall and then focus on the next phase.
