Before even hearing about the PhD acceptance, I ordered three books that will inform my learning as I step forward. Since this will be more like a marathon, part of the prep for this is the equipment I’ll need to keep me going. I’ve also begun some research for an action research project that I will be conducting as part of an OER Fellow. Both of these will be part of the first steps to preparing for this learning journey.
