I haven’t spent much time writing recently, but really want to start doing this more aggressively. I’ve just turned 4o and have decided that I need to have a published book this year. It will probably be self-published, but that’s just fine.
Part of envisioning yourself as a writer requires you to do it. I need to write every day. I plan to once again use the blog as a form of reflexivity. That is what it was originally developed for as I wrote my dissertation.
So my plans are:
- write and publish the book
- complete and publish a research report with my colleague and supervisor Marcy Delcourt (my draft is to her, she needs to review and comment)
- complete and publish a white paper on “blended learning” with my colleague Matthew
- conceptualize, write and publish a paper on higher order thinking, 21st century skills, and creative thinking with my colleagues Jason and Chris
Writing, to me, is a very important professional responsibility. We need to be able to share ideas, best practices, and evidence-based strategies.
