Hunger of Memory part of Autobiography Theory and Practice MIT OCW bless em!
In praise of MIT OCW unbeknown to me You would be the Inspiration behind this crazy Project to immitate Rodriguez in his pursuit of a Marathon Reading Project (realised on Friday Jan 2nd 20008)
I had no idea You had it in You unlike normal University and Normal Departments where one is Single Subject unless one is Joint Honours.
The Mad Opportunities You Give Me
Not only do I wander into any Department I like and grab it’s Resources but I am free to wander the corridors of the OCW Campus and make up my own little undergraduate programme with the implications that I must make up some academic judgement as to my performance or lack of it.
Exposure to Undergraduate and Postgraduate material is surely a good good thing.
I have to in other words play Professor Lecturer and assess my learning-as if we could replace the Proffessoriate- in order to make some kind of Assessment of my Work.
I see one is gonna have to be Reader if one is to do a Masters and one has to produce Papers, present Papers, advance Knowledge if one is to PhD.
Maybe You expose my insecurities, my fears, my inadequecies. Maybe it is good for Society to be exposed to Undergraduate and where available-Postgraduate Material.
University could be the Big Exposer? or the Great Equipper and Empowerer??
Thank You once again for my untrammelled liberty to stalk the Departments normally forbidden to normal Undergraduates and explore Topics I might not otherwise be exposed to that I have in Course Lecture Form on my HDD via Podcast.
I think I need to sort out brain or just randomly explore issues presented by MIT OCW per se primarily, then explore impacts of other Courseware offerings ditto.
I need to do a clear Review of above Book.
Above is First Write to get it done. This is Second Edit on Contents of Blog to tag Posts and add Wordage in order to boost Word Counts in a manner of given Credits because there is a need to count up LIFETIME WORDAGE all Blogs, LIFETIME WORDAGE all documents Word, Open Office, Star Office.
And at last post WEEKLY Progress Reports on Readin’ and Writin’ for all to see.
Master ACADEMIC Prose Styles and Prose Forms from Position Paper, to Paper, to Working Paper !!! etc My own independent academic work gives me plenty of opportuntiy to do this plus justify Conclusions/Findings on basis of Evidence however disadvantegously got.
