Falls rain in Katoomba.

  Now gentle.

    Now fierce.

      Gentle again.

        And still falls the rain.

UTS Autumn 2011 Progress

2011.05.29
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

a. the goals which you set for the semester

 

My goal is to continue making reasonable progress towards completion of my PhD in rough accordance with the plan set forth in my Doctoral Assessment Report of 7 Dec 2010.

b. your progress in relation to your goals, work plans, and other achievements

 

I am definitely making progress.  Just had a paper accepted for the 1st GOLC Workshop at the 2011 Frontiers in Education (FiE) Conference. The two reviewers gave the paper scores of 94/100 and 98/100 which is best result I have obtained to date.

 

 

c. problems or issues which affected your progress and the strategies identified to overcome them (e.g., infrastructure/equipment, outside work commitments, project funding);

 

Without belaboring the tale, I was caught out unexpectedly on a number of fronts at the start of the year.  Most notably, I had to move house and find work.  These unavoidable and high-priority distractions came right on the heels of taking a short breather after successfully passing the Doctoral Assessment in December 2010.  These two matters occupied a great deal of my time and attention for the first few months of 2011.  I have relocated to Katoomba and have taken on some software engineering work and, for the time at least, things have settled down sufficiently that I am again making suitable forward progress towards my degree.

 

 

d. the involvement of external or industry supervisors (where applicable);

 

Not applicable.

 

 

e. the goals and an agreed work plan for the forthcoming semester, taking into account your progress this semester and the number of semesters left for your candidature.

 

 

I intend to continue following the plan set forth in my Doctoral Assessment Report of 7 December 2011.  Over the next few months I will be doing the precursor work needed by the survey instrument to be employed by my research.  I am in the process of developing a working set of remote engineering instructional laboratory characteristics.  The working set derives from exegesis of extant literature.  The working set will be winnowed down to a testable set of REIL characteristics through interviews with teacher-academics within several engineering disciplines.  The testable set will be utilized to create a survey instrument.  Survey instrument guidance, as well as guidance on sample identification and selection, will hopefully come from persons within UTS CenSoC.  By the end of next semester, I should like to have a survey instrument ready to deploy.  Along the way, I will also be developing a taxonomy of remote engineering instructional laboratory characteristics.

To the Katoomba Sports and Aquatic Center today with friend Natlie.  Nice time with the weights.  Juggling with a couple decent seven ball runs.  Then sauna, jacuzzi, swim.

Walked home as per usual.  Rain falling gently.  Katoomba is good.

Gentle rain in Katoomba

Freight Train Breakdown at Penrith

2011.05.18
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

So made my train today to get down for PhD visit.  Unfortunately, there was a freight train breakdown at Penrith that led to repeated stop-and-waits for our train.  Clearly to miss meetings, I out at Glenwood and wait for return up the hill.  Lovely station carved out of the hills.  Lonely station, too.  I was there alone for better than 30 minutes and then only two ladies were on the platform when the train did arrive.  One lady was heading to Springwood to return a library book.  During my wait time I practiced flute for a while.  Working on two octave runs, from  C to C.  Low C is a bugger.

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

First flute lesson today.  I probably should go practice the c major sacle which i just learned.  Could not find the right school.  Got misdirected to to Katoomba High School. Went inside, got locked inside.  Almost bailed on lesson but pedaled there anyway – good fifteen minutes.
