Here I am at departure gate 60 Sydney airport waiting to fly to
I am going to the Council on Undergraduate Research conference, at the College of New Jersey.
One presentation I am giving is called Research Skill Development, Fresher to Professor….
But waiting here, it makes me wonder if the 45 min delay on boarding due to ‘the catering’ could have been avoided: maybe they could have a group of undergraduate business students research their catering business?
Embark: why/how/ or did caterers hold up global travelers?
Find: what were the superficial and underlying reasons for delay?
Evaluate: can they trust the sources that pointed the blame at ‘someone else’
Organize: how do students arrange the diverse types of information they have gathered or generated so that thorough analysis can happen.
Analysis & Synthesis: how can they make sense of possibly divergent data? How can the bring all this info and anlysis together to Answer the questions about underlying reason
Communicate & apply: who will they tell? What difference will their findings make?
ANYWAY, WE ARE NOW BOARDED AND READY TO FLY.
Hope the food is good!
