Masters Research

My second Human Ethics application (to the Education Department) is IN, as of two days ago. This is a Big Relief. And, hot news straight off the press, my University Ethics application has been approved through to the final stage. I think this means no more amendments are required. Phew!

Today I was at the University, teaching my two classes. In between I hooked up to the University Wireless network (sounds easy, but always requires assistance from the helpful Ed-IT fellows), and downloaded EndNote software, which will help me keep track of my reading. I haven’t heard anyone say a bad word about EndNote – in fact, you only hear people rave about it. I figured I had better get myself set up with it.

Reading this week…

Buoyed by this affirmative activity, I hit the library (currently a minor disaster of ongoing renovations and steep stairways to the collections). This week I have decided to focus on reading all I can about Innovative Techniques for interviewing children (especially those who have English as a Second Language, so may require the assistance of an interpreter). I have ideas for eliciting responses using images and video footage to stimulate dialogue and reactions, but want to read what the experts have to say.
