Today, I had my Master's thesis printed and bound. I sign it off tomorrow and then it is sent to two reviewers - one internal and one external.
At my University, to go on with the PhD pathway. I need to receive at least a credit. I presented my ideas in an earlier post, which will continue on with my current topic of research - TPACK in the classroom- except this time, I will be working with pre-service teachers. I have been tutoring since last month and it has reignited my desire to go back to my original ideas and interests- working with ICTs in the Teacher Education Program (TEP).
My next hope is that my current supervisor is willing to take me on again and see me through a PhD! I will keep you posted!
5 reasons my supervisor rocks
1) I like the way he thinks
Similar ideas and beliefs, have definitely helped produce an excellent working relationship.
2) I always receive constructive feedback
Constructive feedback and encouragement at each meeting- i always leave feeling motivated.
3) He knows his stuff!
I'm always learning something new about research and academic writing.
4) He has faith in me
Even when I went through the phase of doubting myself. His continuous support without micromanaging has given me more confidence. I don't want to let myself down but I don't want to let my supervisor down either.
5) He is highly respected in his field.
I certainly feel privileged to be his student. He is highly regarded, which makes me strive harder to produce a high standard of work everytime (even drafts!) and I ensure I'm prepared each time we meet.
As I write this, it's clear that my supervisor is a source of motivation!
