Who Are You?
Back in March I mentioned a paper I’d just given at a conference, which then became a journal submission, then six months later became a revised accepted submission, and now is a preprint sitting right here: Who Are You? Weblogs and Academic Identity (a sequel to the one from two years ago). A shame I can’t include the image-heavy slideshow that went with it, but David Bowie’s agent wouldn’t be pleased.
Something else that’s taken a while to reach fruition, but will soon, is my new job: from January I’ll be working on a new Masters of E-Learning being offered at the University of Edinburgh from September 2006, developing the technical side and teaching a course on E-Learning, Politics and Society. Of course, first I have to write the course. Still, it looks pretty good, judging from the outline... that I also wrote. But don’t take my word for it: sign up for the degree and judge for yourself. It’s being taught entirely online in the first year.
I might have to turn this blog into some kind of behind-the-scenes development journal, if it isn’t to die the death between now and next December.
Hey dude, that's great! Sounds like an interesting course. Is that in the Education department or elsewhere? Am a bit out of the loop on eLearning - have been on maternity leave too long ;) - but will take a gander, could be interesting! Would be interesting to see the development on your journal, if that's a geeky thing to ask ;) Oh, and Happy New Year by the way!
