In addition to posting to this blog yesterday, I posted a separate topic to the BDRA (Beyond Distance Research Alliance) blog at the University of Leicester, titled “Beware of distractions.” In a recent presentation, I spoke of the use of Twitter, while a colleague provided a little skepticism with the use of some technologies…such as when they are a distraction. My post was a follow up acknowledging her point.
Unrelated, I am looking forward to a video conference this morning with my 3 student colleagues, followed immediately by a tutorial with one of my supervisors. Yes, an advanced (or early) degree can be done at a distance.
I hope you are subscribed to the BDRA blog. You can read posts from the students, supervisors, and researchers of my department.
