I want to be an International Scholar, Teacher, and Researcher when I grow up. 🙂
I am in Chile collecting my dissertation data with plans to write my dissertation here through the support of my committee member Dr. Anne Bliss who is a resident here in Talca. My career goal is to become a Super Dopper International Scholar and Futurist. My areas of interest within the field of Adult Education are civic and community engagement. I am also looking to introduce, in an interdisciplinary manner, my methodological models for Spiral Dynamic Theory and Memetics in relation to adult learning. I am also incorporating Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences as I think they will prove even more valuable as we look to understanding our ever growing, diverse, and complex world.
In addition to my foremost task of completing my dissertation, I am co-instructor for a number of graduate level classes at the University of Georgia alongside my committee chair, Dr. Lorilee Sandmann. She asked me last Saturday to develop a lesson plan and presentation for our student in EADU 9602 Writing for Publication to use on today. So that’s what the video above is all about as well as the supporting activities materials that are below accessible through the hyperlink. I am starting to notice that with each production, my skills are getting better at making these types of learning modules. So here are the materials we are using in class today and I welcome feedback anyone would like to share. Thanks in advance.
EADU 9602 Writing for Publication Activities Materials
Study abroad experiences are not as easy to received for many minority and low-income students. Hopefully, as the world continues to shrink through the use of technology this will become both a physical and experiential reality for more students looking to study abroad.
I would emphasize that learning is not only for the “youth” and that adults continue to develop in their thinking and being as the world undergoes radical and disruptive changes. As an adult educator I hope to see educational support for not just undergraduates, but adult professionals and graduate students as well. In the motto of my new social entrepreneurial venue e_Integralvention… “I’m still learning!”.
I feel very blessed as an adult learner, scholar, and practitioner, to be able to study and share in a civically engaged manner abroad. 🙂
As an emergent scholar I plan to have short films and diverse artistic ways a knowing be a part of my teaching and research pedagogical toolkit. I’m interested in the higher education Professoriate, but also want to pursue the trac of Social Entrepreneur. I am also learning how to make films so don’t be too disapponted. Here is a little short piece I put together upon my return to Chile this March.
I was very excited to learn that I had a window seat (because I couldn’t recall what I had selected earlier) on the flight. You surely can imagine my horror and disappointment, as a budding filmmaker, when I opened my window only to see that huge airplane wing.
A great documentary about the absence of Black academics within the UK higher educational terrain. Excellent piece!

Here is a review that focuses on some US for-profit educational institutions. These types of stories served as the motivation for my current dissertation research focus. Your comments and feedback are welcomed.
My ride from the airport to the bus station in Santiago where I meet my first dear Chilean friend Camila. I take the Tur Bus from the Santiago bus station for a 3 hour ride to Talca, Maule, Chile.
