A Dissertation Story
A brief story about my dissertation process: My dissertation is centered around Service Based Learning. In other words, using a community service project to tech and educate students in a real world setting or environment. A few years ago, my wife and I noticed my daughter didn’t really have a great grasp on how fortunate she was, how to be grateful, and how to be humble. So we thought we should start taking her on some community service projects to show her how lucky she was, and how she could help the less fortunate.
But I thought why stop there, why not incorporate community service into my professional and academic career? So I began my push to improve the use of service based learning in the world of academia. I’m not done with the statistics yet to see how it all turns out, but I hope it will at least get people thinking about using Service Based Learning more in their curriculum.
ONE THING I LEARNED TODAY:
There are SO MANY ways to do good and to be good. Pick one, just one, and act on it. The world needs more do gooders and positivity right now. Pick someone up and help fill their bucket with joy and kindness. And at the end of the day, don’t be a dick!
