the forums …

The forums for both subjects have been incredibly informative – not only for the content, but for the way in which questions are asked and comments made and the manner in which these are responded to …

Some of us rage and whine in frustration and sometimes we get a sympathetic or confirming response from other students – other times we get a diffusing or calming response from other students who attempt to explain or clarify what has been re-written.

I am interested to discover that neither of these approaches really work for me, they might be cathartic or calming – but they don’t assist my learning. The ones that have helped me the most are those that come like a splash of cold water in the face e.g. “it’s in the APA referencing guide”. These remind me that I am an adult who can think when she puts her mind to it!

    1. Thank you! I haven’t done much on my site since moving to a coastal town in southern NSW (beautiful beach and magnificent mountain!) but will need to get back to work in the not-too-distant future – hopefully I will have something that you are interested in: meantime, best wishes to you and yours.

  1. Awesome blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics discussed in this article? I’d really like to
    be a part of group where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same
    interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    1. Thank you – I appreciate your comments and kudos! To be honest I only started my blog to fulfil the requirements of my Masters program and to gain some familiarity with the web – and I am so glad they made me do it! Once I got the hang of it I thoroughly enjoyed reflecting upon my learning, so fully understand your desire to locate current user discussion forums on similar topics — unfortunately I am unable to make recommendations as I have taken a break from study (and thereby my student/supervisor networks) and am focussing on putting learning into practice through teaching. I do hope you find what you are seeking, meantime my very best wishes to you.
