Things to do in Week 1

There are a few things to do this week.

We are using two pieces of software in addition to the L@G platform: this wiki and a Slack site.

The Slack site requires you to set up an account in order to use it. You can read the Wiki without signing up but if you have the urge to add or edit the wiki, you will need an account. Let me know and I can send you an invitation. You won't be able to use the Slack site without signing up. if you are having trouble signing on, please let Chris know. I have emailed the link to join.

We used to put introductions on the wiki but it is easier to do that on Slack and it is private cf. the wiki which is open to the world. Have a look at some of the introductions on the wiki and then pop a paragraph about yourself, background, interests and research agenda (in brief) on the introductions channel.

The other thing to do is have a look around this wiki and familiarise yourself with where things are. There is more to add, it's a work in progress. It will be the hub for resources and the weekly themes of the course.

I am assuming that you are all keeping notebooks to track your work in the EdD. If you are not, then now is the chance to start. I can't emphasize enough how valuable well kept notebooks will be for you in this course but, more importantly, in completing your EdD. Whether you use digital notebooks, physical notebooks or a mix of both is really a matter of taste. You ought to carry one with you all the time. Good ideas tend to come to mind when you least expect them. :)

Information about the weekend workshop, which will be held on Saturday the 13th of July has been emailed to you. I have put a bit of a shopping list for some of the things we may want to talk about here. Let me know if you want anything added or you can do it on the day.
