Tags: Discussion, empirical vs. non-empirical research, presentation discussion boards
Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying Week #11. I think you all are having another terrific discussion this week on participatory action research (PAR), mix methods research and the difference between empirical and non-empirical research. I hope you all have taken time to read the articles written by our own department chair Dr. Susan Birden, and listened to Dr. Birden’s audio description of the work that she does. We added her work to this course because she really talks about a need for non-empirical research to be valued within the education field. Often times we see the divide in research be between qualitative and quantitative research, and non-empirical research gets left out of the conversation. So, I am really excited that you have been exposed to research from empirical to non-empirical. I have posted the discussion questions for the presentation week in the presentation week folders. You can take a look at how the discussion will run and that will give you a sense of what to expect when you’re presenting. Of course your presentation materials and your final literature review are due this Saturday. I will post all of those materials on Sunday and then our presentation discussion during Week #12 will begin on Tuesday. We will have an altered discussion schedule from next week from Tuesday to Thursday, due to the Veteran’s Day holiday. The presentation discussion board will open on midnight on Tuesday and will close on midnight on Thursday. So we have that entire discussion period to work on the presentation discussion board. This discussion will not have the same structure of our regular discussions, in that your first post response is not due as soon as the discussion opens. Instead you are required to make a first post on each of the four discussion boards (or three discussion boards if you are a presenter) within the 36 hours that the discussion is open. So, the discussion is open on midnight on Tuesday and then you are going to want to make sure that by noon on Wednesday you’ve posted a first post response to everyone who is presenting this week. Yes, presenters you do have to participate in the other discussion boards this week, as well as facilitate your own discussions board. I know it will be a busy week, but the discussion activity and the materials for the discussion are only reading requirement for this week and I think it is going to be extremely interesting and very valuable, as well. Those of you who have not done a lot of peer review in previous courses or have not worked with me in the grant writing course previously, I want you to encourage you to think through the peer review process. It’s critically important that you approach peer review with an open mind. Both as a reviewer and the presentation presenter who is being reviewed. Please know that we are all working together to learn as much as we possibly can about research and research methods, and all of the peer reviewed critiques will be given with the best intentions. So, I think if we all have an open mind and know that we are all working together to try to learn as much as we can the peer reviewed process will go very well. I’ll post some peer reviewed guidelines as well just so that you can take a look at how peer review typically should be approached. Thanks again for all you hard work in the course good look on all your final assignments. I hope they are coming along well. I will of course be available via “Ask the Instructor” discussion board and by email. On Saturday, I do have limited availability in the afternoon and evening, so please post any questions early in the day on Saturday. Thanks so much everyone have a great week and weekend!
What's in store for us today at The St Joseph's Festival? Lots more action, that's what, with another 25 fiercely contested encounters on the cards! Will Millfield emerge as 6 times winners, or will the festival hosts pull it out of the bag? Only time will tell.

This is a poem by Author, Poet and mother of four boys, Nicholl McGuire. Sometimes one needs to be reminded of the systematic brainwashing by our media, government and even those closest to you. Break free! Think about the company you keep, how you spend your free time, and what you are allowing to permeate your ears and eyes.

Tags: Week #6, Writing Center, paper scores
Hello Everyone! Thank you for a great discussion during Week #6. I'm sorry I didn't post an audio message last week, but my ipadio account wasn't working. I will try to post an audio message every week from here on. I also created a video folder in our Blackboard site. I'm going to post video content each week to support what we are reading and discussing in class. There are several videos in the folder already, including the one we watched for our follow-up discussion this week. Thank you for turning in your papers a week and a half ago. Normally, I have all papers scored within a week, but this first assignment takes a bit longer as the Writing Tutor scores the paper first. If you were not referred to the Writing Center but you would like additional help with your writing, please send me an e-mail. The Writing Center is a free service offered to all Adult Education students. You can work on your writing at your own pace with the Writing Tutor. All of the papers will be turned back this week. I score the papers "first in, first out" so that the first paper submitted is the first paper graded. All of the papers will be returned by Sunday, and I promise future assignments will be scored within one week. Thank you, again, for your patience! You do have another large assignment coming up. You have a site visit report due on October 19. Those guidelines are posted in the Assignment Guidelines folder. As always, please feel free to post any questions about the assignment on the "Ask the Instructor" discussion board. I hope you all have a great experience visiting an adult education setting. We've been doing a really wonderful job on the discussion board talking about some of the most important issues in adult education, such as access issues, diversity issues, and foundational concepts, such as andragogy, self-directive learning and transformative learning. Also, I am really enjoying your personal journal entries. I am humbled that you are willing to share so much with me. Of course, I keep these journal entries confidential. We will continue with our educational autobiography work for the next two weeks. I hope you are finding it to be a useful activity. I have office hours at the usual days/times for the next several weeks. Please feel free to e-mail, call or stop in for a visit. Thanks again for all of your hard work. I hope you have a great week and weekend!
