I aent' dead

i-f875c0b07d9b3cb6229668554781b35a-alice.jpgJust super busy in the 3D world, as Janet calls it. Burning the candle at both ends. But I have a little time carved out tomorrow morning and I hope to get a blog post written then. And next week is spring break for us, so I hope to have more time then. In the meantime, let me offer a choice of blog posts running around in my head - vote in the comments by Friday morning, and I'll write the one with most votes.

  1. What microethics and macroethics are in the context of engineering education from my trip to Arizona State University 2 weeks ago
  2. A beginner's guide to NSF grantwriting, from my vast experience of PIing my first grant (went in yesterday, w00t!)
  3. A discussion on the future research brainstorm that engineering education researchers from Virginia Tech, Clemson, Utah State, and Purdue had last week in Washington, and how it led into a weird conversation with a lot of deans who didn't want to be there (and some who did - this was where I was last week)
  4. My plans for spring break

I know, doesn't that all sound riveting? :-) Let me know which one I should write tomorrow.

Not only has it been INSANE in my job this week, my computer has been in the shop since yesterday morning, and won't be back in my hands until Monday morning. If then. Of course, part of the recent insanity has perhaps been BECAUSE my computer has been in the shop. And they've been installing the…

I want to hear about the weird conversation with the Deans.

NSF grantwriting

Is that a Terry Pratchett quote I see?

I vote NSF grantwriting - grants have been the main reason I don't want to be a "real" professor, and it'd be nice to get a perspective besides my advisor's.

It is indeed a Terry Pratchett quote. :-) And I'm obviously late on this post. I will get to it, I will...

Grant writing, please. Just submitted my first to NSF too and would be interested to see how your experience compares.
