Thanks for the congrats. I'm leading a session on autoethnography as a method for the Writers' Group in April. What sort of session and what kind of forum did you have in mind for the subject of my dissertation (solo practitioner & self as instrument)? I'd be interested in pursuing something if there were interest...
Hi Penny - thanks for the words of welcome it's really appreciated! I heard about you through a link on linked-in via the association for executive coaching - wheels within wheels I think. Looking forward to the conversations with like minded people - Regards Sasha
Hi Penny. I found out about AMED through you actually. I was looking at the IEMA website, when I saw the book that you produced for them. Through the wonders of Google, I found the Sustainable Development Network and through that AMED. I'm in London on the 14th, so may well pop into the lunch. Adam
Hi Penny, let me explain more. My experience is 5 years in Assertive Outreach and currently 5 yrs in Early Intervention working with service users who are experiencing first episode psychosis. My position within the team is support, time and recovery worker and I am in the 3rd year of doing my occupational therapy degree part time inservice route. I am just attempting to prepare for my dissertation (scary). Can you tell me about this site and how it may be useful for me? Julie
Thank you. I have been trying to count all the sources of information I try to keep up with and I've reached 18 and counting!! The main ones are from government sources, LSIS (Learning and Skills Improvement Service); Ofqual; NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics); Skills for Life network, LLUK (Lifelong Learning UK); SFA (Skills Funding Agency); NRDC (National Research and Development Council); NANAMIC (National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges); Ofsted, LSN (Learning and Skills network; and all the main awarding bodies.
There are more and it has surprised me to see how many I try to read.No wonder I never seem to catch up!
I note the Crowdwise event is on Thursday 23rd September in the afternoon - the same day as the start of the AIN conference in Amsterdam. Any chance it might get pushed earlier in the day?
Hi Penny, I knew Alan who did great work for us building the framework for sustainable development. I think he is consulting now but he left a great legacy here. I am only involved as any other manager in the company with my key focus being on our commercial capabilities i.e. how we market and sell our brands across the globe and how that is likely to change.
