Back to school

It’s the new year and the kids are going back to school tomorrow.

So, ironically, am I.

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from my masters program at UBC, but decided that now was the time to pick it back up again. I’m taking a degree in Educational Technology … the artsy science of how to use technology to enhance education.

Next up: ETEC 500 (research methodology).

It’ll be a partial review from what I picked up in a Psych class while taking my bachelor’s in English at SFU, but there’ll be plenty new there too.

Ugh. Now I have to buy textbooks.

It may be a course on educational technology, but economic models die slowly, most of the time, and the dead tree as knowledge transmission device is still alive and well in academia.

Leaves of grass, as Walt would say.
