Introducing Positive ION and what that is all about. I focus My Positive Eye On small shops, eateries, services, local events, places of interest, and other cool things in my own backyard. The idea is to get the word around about the little things that are not so widely advertised, including local art, music and the people who make such things.

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the first presentation week, Week #12. I want to wish all of our presenters good luck! I hope you enjoy the process of having your work peer reviewed this week. Please know that everyone is reviewing your work with the best intentions, and of course they are required to ask questions or make a comment or suggestion for improvement. So, please understand that the process is done with the best intentions. I hope you all find it to be a very useful process. We have four presentation discussion boards being run this week. Everyone is required to participate in all four boards. If you are presenter, please make a first post so that you can enter your discussion board, and be sure to response to the questions and comments from your peers. If your peers post a suggestion or comment that you don’t understand or that you would like more information about, please feel free to ask your peer a follow up question. Additionally, if anyone makes the suggestion that you don’t agree with, in your response you can offer a defense as to why you have set things up the way you have (originally). Again, this should be done with the best intentions and we should all have a great attitude as we go into the peer reviewed week. For those of you who are doing the reviewing this week, please make your critique as specific as you possibly can. General suggestions often don’t move the process forward, but very specific, precise suggestions do have the ability to move our conversation forward in a very positive way. You’ll be offering those positive comments about the literature review and the hypothetical research study, as well as suggestions for improvement or questions. Please make sure you frame those questions and suggestions in a positive light, and again please be as specific as you possibly can and check back to see how each presenter has responded to your peer review feedback. The discussion board this week is open from 12am Tuesday, so it is open now, through midnight on Thursday. You are able to interact that entire time, but everyone must make a first post on the presentation discussion boards by noon on Wednesday. Peer review presenters please remember to respond to your peers as quickly as you can, so that the conversation can continue with a back and forth exchange about your response to the initial feedback. After this week, I think we will have a good sense about how the peer review process runs. Please feel free to ask any questions or concerns on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. I will not be participating in the presentation discussion board, because those board are being run by the presenters. I don’t want to “hijack” the conversation with any comments or questions that I may make or ask, so I will save my feedback until the end of the discussion. After each presentation discussion week has ended, I will post a summary post on each discussion board summarizing what I believe were the main points of the discussion and clarifying any outstanding questions or concerns. So if there are any concerns outstanding at the end of the discussion period, I will be able to response to those after the discussion has ended. Presenters: if someone ask a question and you’re not sure what the answer is, please try to find out. This is a great time to use your course readings and resources, and you’re welcome to go to outside resources as well, to clarify any questions or concerns that arise. I am thrilled with the presentations that I have been reading. It’s wonderful to see the way that you’re thinking through the information that learned in this course and putting it into action into your hypothetical research plan. I look forward to the rest of the discussion this week. Have a great time and I will post my summaries on Friday. Take care everyone!
