I’ve begun the Michigan State University Hybrid Ph.D. program in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology, and it’s week 1 day 3 of this exciting (and intense) experience. In my cohort I’m joined by 11 accomplished, brainy, and downright nice people in this land of fascinating conversations, mild sleep deprivation, and adjustment to life outside of our comfort zones. We are in the first residency of the program, so we are on site at MSU. We spend about 6 hours a day in class and all of the remaining hours preparing for the next class. I’m planning to blog about my thoughts and learning in the program, so stay tuned.
