“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

My PhD Journey, So Far...
As part of my PhD Journey with Nova Scotia's Inter-University Educational Studies Program, I had to develop a Portfolio that demonstrates 5 key areas of competencies.
The program is co-hosted by: Acadia University, Mount Saint Vincent University and St. Francis Xavier University. My supervisor is Dr. Michael Corbett so my home institution is Acadia University, but I have committee members that include people from other universities as well as my own.
My committee members currently are: Dr. Ashwani Kumar of Mount Saint Vincent University and Dr. John Colton of Acadia University. Dr. Kumar is a Professor in the Educational Studies program, and Dr. Colton is head of the Community Development Department at Acadia.
The narrative for this portfolio includes:
an Introduction (with links to a chart of the artefacts included here, and the narrative in full),
the 5 competency areas, and
a Moving Forward section.
The 5 Competency Areas include:
Professional & Collegial
Teaching & Instructional
Toward A Methodology & A Research Proposal
This section is about how I will be moving forward in my PhD journey. Selecting artefacts and writing a narrative for this Portfolio assignment has helped me explore a variety of methodological approaches that interest me, and will also now form a basis for what I need to do next which is a research proposal.
