As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Isn't This The Truth!

I had never seen this before, but a friend of mine alerted me to iton his blog (see Moore & Garrison - Sartre and IT). While the paper that he is describing (and it is worth the click to actually go and see The Contribution of Metaphysics to Instructional Technology: An Existentialist Perspective Based on Sartre's Being and Nothingness by David M. Moore and James W. Garrison) provide the authors views on the state of instructional technology in 1988, I (and I would suggest others like Cuban and Oppenheimer) would argue that not much has changed.

I mean pick your field... Instructional Technology, Gaming in Education, Virtual Schooling - take your pick of my favourites and personal areas of interest.

Can it really still be that bleak?
