Welcome to Academic Practice

This is the course wiki for Academic Practice.

Welcome to this tiny piece of bit space that is for folk who are undertaking a Doctorate in the field of Education.

There is an ethos that informs the way this course works that is well captured in the following quote1:

The most respected people at IDEO are part pack rat (because they have great private collections of stuff), part librarian (because they know who knows what), and part Good Samaritan (because they go out of their way to share what they know and to help others).

In other words, it is impossible to know it all, if ever that was possible2, so the way to survive is to know who knows, who can help and become a sharer and helper yourself: pack rat, librarian, Good Samaritan.

The site is a Wiki. A Wiki is simple a group of web pages that are easy to edit. There are lots of different kinds of Wiki software running on the Internet, this is one of them. It is called Wikidot.
