Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying Week #11. That’s right we are getting to the end of the semester. It comes so quickly! Thank you all for a great discussion this week. We are still continuing our conversation of formal and non-formal forms of adult education and we are getting into some discussion about the import issues of oppression and privilege within the field. You will be taking ADE 655 as part of the Master’s Degree program in Adult Education. I teach that course and of course that particular course focuses on adult education and its connection to oppression and privilege to society. So you’ll have an entire course to dig deeper into those issues later in your time here in the Adult Education program. My research is in social class oppression as well as oppression based on gender and based on location in society, so these issues are very exciting for me and you may see me jump in on the board to ask some clarifying questions and to move our discussion forward. In addition, your follow up discussion for this week is around education and globalization. You’ve read several chapters on international issues in adult education and this is the discussion thread where you can discuss those further. If you have an interest in international adult education we will be offering an elective course in the fall. That course “international adult education” will be taught by Rachel Dominguez one of our wonderful lectures. I encourage you to speak to your advisor if your interest in taking that class. Registration for fall and summer courses begins tomorrow April 9. Please touch base with your advisor to help you come up with a plan for course mapping throughout the program. If you’re looking for a summer course, I’ll be teaching ADE 660: Grant Writing for Education and Training during the A session this summer and I’d love to have any and all of you in that class. But don’t worry if you don’t take that class you’ll have at least one more opportunity to work with me in the program in ADE 655 and potentially ADE 689, the research course, as well. Speaking of international adult education, this Saturday you have your mini case study in international adult education due. You will be finding information for this case study largely through the internet. You can do a search of the type of adult education that you’re interested in, such as literacy education, and find out what programs are available internationally. Then you can pick an international program to find out as much information as you can about that program and then compare it to how literacy education or whatever type of education you choose operates here in the United States. As always, please feel free to email me questions directly through the “Send Mail” function in our Blackboard course site or post the questions on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. Often times if you have a question your peers may be having the same question, so it’s wonderful to ask those questions on the “Ask the Instructor” board. Next week you will be presenting your mini case study as part of your discussion First Post. It will be your entire discussion first post. You will have the option to use a YouTube video, an ipadio Phonecast, or to post a script. If you haven’t tried to use one of our alternative forms of technology such as ipadio or YouTube video, I strongly encourage you to do so during this discussion board opportunity. It’s great to learn different types of media that you can use later on in your career in adult education. Unfortunately, ipadio recently got rid of the text to speech function. This was heartbreaking for me because I use ipadio so often. So please post a script or a description of your presentation along with any ipadio phone cast that you do. There are many different tools available for free online to do free text to script transcription. You can search those on the internet. If anyone really likes a particular text to speech tool, please post information about it on the “Ask the Instructor” board or on the Bulletin Board. Thanks so much for your help with that! This week I have my regular office hours. I’m just finishing them up now. I also have them tomorrow, Wednesday, from 8am-12pm. Next week my office hours will be slightly different. I will have my Wednesday office hours from 8am-12pm but instead of Tuesday office hours, I will have officer hours on Thursday morning from 8am-9am. As always you are welcome to email me, call or stop in during those times and if those times aren't convenient please send me a note and I’ll try to find an alternative time to meet with you. In addition to my change in office hours next week, you will be receiving my phonecast a day later on Wednesday. Thanks everyone for all your hard work good luck with your mini case studies. I am really excited to see, hear and read your presentations about those case studies next week!
We all know the power of posting images and video. Very rarely we hear audio posting, or podcasts. Sometimes an audio has the power of better providing the appropriate feeling. This may be the case if we want to sense what it means for NATO to celebrate today its 65th birthday. Or - better - wha it means to us. Sixty-five years equal to three generations and many of us may have forgotten what happened since.

So and the car we have to leave it outside so all the fuel froze in the morning so it was a bit difficult getting going but luckily it usually has some tricks up his sleeve he changed the filter he put the petrol in with the diesel to tone it down he set up the fuel tank and the filters and so eventually got going at good progress and speed and driving on the Ice Road is absolutely spectacular but you're on a frozen river and sometimes oh it's a proper road it's not just that we're heading off over ice it's.
