July 26, 2007


Follow-up to Back to the basics from The URSS Blog

For once I have the feeling to have made good progress. Yesterday, I saw my supervisor to discuss my short report and to discuss further steps. It was a productive meeting; one hour beforehand I had made a ‘personal wish list’ of what I want to get out of the meeting, and it worked. Now I have a clear vision on how I will proceed in the next two weeks.
Firstly, I will refine my findings on the German context. To have measurable signs of success, I will start by writing up an annotated bibliography, continuing with a short history of higher education reform. This further assignment may lead me to do some more research, focusing on ‘white papers’ and debates in parliament, but that should be fun. I hope that I will have done this by this Sunday, so that Dan and I can start our joint work on the Bologna documents on Monday or so.
Today, I looked at the pieces of literature which I added recently. They may be helpful in the long run, as they have some interesting conceptual points on what role a university should play in the 21st century. They further confirmed some of my ideas on the current debate and highlighted some parallels between the German and the British debate, which I must point out to Dan.
Now there is a plan and new motivation!
