What I’m up to now…

In case you’ve been wondering, I’m now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.  My beloved has been tracking our weekend trips on Tumblr.

My first big project is to prepare for this workshop:

This workshop is meeting Thursday 27 February – Friday 28 February 2014 at the Nanyang Executive Center (NEC) of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.  It is open only to invited speakers and guests, plus NTU students and staff who register by 24 February.

The objectives of this workshop are: 1) to explore the practice and pedagogical themes applied to sustainability education in Asian countries; 2) to review how sustainability is conceptualized and studied in different disciplines such as Science, Social Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Business, etc.  This workshop is funded by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), to be held in conjunction with and mark the 10th anniversary of the School of HSS at NTU.

Professor Sing C. Chew  (Humboldt State University, California, USA and Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, Leipzig, Germany) will deliver the keynote address on “Sustainability in Education.”  Other presenters hail from 17 different countries.

So amazing… so much to say… and so busy I gotta get back to it.  More ponderings in a couple weeks, I promise hope.
