Along with Fielding HOD alumni Alice Kitchel and Jim Marlet, I am launching a new project. Called the Scholar-Practitioner Circle Project, it is geared towards continuing discussion, networking, and research on how post-docs continue to translate their scholarly perspective to their practice worlds.
As an adult learner who achieved my PhD in mid-career stream, and also today as a mentor and instructor for other adults who are working towards their doctoral degree, I am interested in how this accomplishment defines others and changes our work and life. I see potential for research, writings, and fellowship around this topic. I welcome comments, and would like to hear other’s perspectives.
