I’m looking forward to returning to the classroom this week. I’m particularly excited about what we may be able to accomplish in my research seminar with the ten students enrolled. The first two weeks will be baseline assessments of my students’ research skills. Reading (the novel, Still Alice—-and watching the movie; published journal articles–exemplary and poor research; popularized science articles), writing (blog pieces with me; self-published books; grant proposals); review (statistics and experimental design–designing DOABLE studies for every design that I teach in my book), and much development of thinking skills
Here are some earlier blogs I wrote as my thoughts began to focus on the topic I want to pursue “Brain Fitness Training Programs. I hope to tap into the knowledge of several Carroll graduates who share these interests.
Can one teach this old dog new tricks?
Is my old brain fit to be tied?
We’ll even tackle Tom Brady’s just gone public cerebral work out!
Time to discuss my plans for the course with Leo as we go for our pre-bedtime walk.
