Crystal’s Recent Educational Horizons: Career Tracks – Educational Entrepreneur Article Printed Edition
I finally got the printed copies of my recent (Feb. ’14) Edu-Preneurship articles… A better scan to follow soon. #sobusy. Enjoy…
Spent last night working on an in-depth, publishable review of a new culturally-responsive research methods book (significant Indigenous research methods component) that I am co-writing with another newly minted Dr. (she’s a Ph.D. out of A.S.U via U.C. Davis). I absolutely loved this book and read every word in one day. I must say that after very recently having a colleague ask me in a perplexed state, “What are Indigenous research methods?”, I am so pleased to have co-authored this review. Considering that a significant number of our global population operate off Indigenous thought/cultural systems, it might behoove (for numerous mutually beneficial reasons) our thought leaders to seek to understand and respond to their distinct Indigenous Peoples (even in urban settings) affordances.
Now that I am back in writer mode, our benevolent universe decided to gift me with a wonderful online epub’er. This is a huge gift since I’ve spent many hours looking for the perfect option, to no avail, in the past. So, I’ve spent the a portion of the morning uploading my dissertation chapter 5, “Native American women leaders utilization of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for work-life balance” to this great service (more later). I am still debating whether or not to send my article to a refereed/peer-reviewed journal because I have serious questions about these journals overall benefit to society. Since my work is unique (nationally/globally) and cannot be replicated, I am not concerned about being the first to pub. and am really taking my time to determine the best path to sharing “my” creation and my participants sacred stories for the greater good. In the meantime, those of you who know me well, will appreciate how much I love the fact that this service offers a write in *stealth mode* option!
