Jetsetting

Normally on a Thursday afternoon I'd be on campus, but today I left early in order to do some errands, such as get my mail held. Tomorrow I leave for Chicago for over a week. I'll be spending Easter weekend with my family - our parents have already arrived and my sister lives there - and then on Monday AERA starts. I don't leave here until 6 p.m. tomorrow, but in the early afternoon I have a presentation at Grad Student Research Day, so these errands need to get done today.

Hm. It looks as if I need more laundry detergent. More errands!

Happy Easter! Stay warm up north... I heard it is supposed to be a bit chilly this weekend. :)

Hi T. You may know Beth Graue or Adam Gamoran here at Wisconsin, where we have two doctoral training programs, The Spencer Doctoral Research Program http://www.wcer.wisc.edu/drp//
and the Interdisciplinary Training Program in the Education sciences http://www.wcer.wisc.edu/itp/

Hope to see you at AERA. I'm a panelist wednesday on communicating research.

The Buber citation:


“Education”, Between Man and Man. The essay is just 20 pages, so it is easy to find. Buber sees the I- Thou relationship between teacher and student as vital and unique, not to be muddied with the seeming brilliance of other intimacy.

Paul: I've never had the pleasure of meeting either of them, but I'm familiar with their work. Looking forward to the conference!

Ji: Thanks so much!
