Well, technically it’s already Saturday, but I forgot my new resolution to post interesting links that I’ve happened upon during the week but didn’t have a chance to post. I didn’t originally choose a specific theme, but the world of academia seems to be a constant.
- How to complete your PhD (or any large project): Hard and soft deadlines, and the Martini Method is an interesting blog entry written by Shane at Academic Productivity. The title is fairly self-explanatory and certainly relevant to me at the moment.
- University social media policies makes an interesting point about how expectations for discussing topics online differ from those expectations in the F2F world. Specifically, Kevin Gamble of High Touch explores the issues confronting those of us who do not obscure our identity online when commenting, blogging, etc. and how we may be viewed as representatives of our university.
- Writing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy for the Academic Job Search contains tips from Tomorrow’s Professor’s Blog, a collaborative resource developed by MIT and Stanford.
- Cal Newport’s category Tips: Paper Writing at Study Hacks. Some of these posts may become required reading for my students.
Hope everyone finds these edifying!
