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.

We Interrupt This Discussion...

Okay, I have had these gaming links in my Bloglines for quite some time and wanted to get them out there. Hopefully I'll have some more time next week to get back to the discussion about academic publications, but until then...

Now some of you may wonder why I am into or got into gaming. I guess the easy answer for that is because Dr. Lloyd Rieber is on my doctoral committee. A more complicated answer would be that I used to teach a course in technology integration and after seeing a group of grade five students create their own Homemade Powerpoint Games, I became sold on the idea of gaming in education and particularly the the construction of games, to the point I used to have all of my own undergraduate create their own Powerpoint Games.
