On the plus side some methods (case studies, ethnography, DBR, and action research) I have read about before. I am the only weirdo I know who read about research methods after I was done with my MA because I wanted to know more. However, I feel like I am missing something if I don't do all the readings assigned by classmates. The intent of the assignment is to be fun and to work as a jigsaw activity, so that we can all teach one another, so in theory if I don't get to read everything it should be OK, but I can't shake this feeling of missing something! I could certainly use a few more snowdays ;-)
One of the things I am thinking of recommending is adding additional dates for presentations and enforcing a spread over 4 days instead of having 2 and completely student choice. I like student choice, but some decisions may lead to cognitive overload, which seems counter-productive.
I have a feeling that I will be doing some more work over the summer with Cohen, Manion, and Morrison as my co-pilots. OK, enough blogging. Time to work on assignment 3, and read, prep for the presentation, prep for 684, and provide feedback. Maybe even Experience Bij, LOL :p
in case you are curious about "Experience Bij" there is an explanation in the urban dictionary. If you want to see people playing the board game (while having beer), have a look at this video which gives you more context. Viewer Discretion advised (language used can be potentially deemed offensive)
