Since coming to the UK, regionalism has become more apparent to me than ever before. Maybe because of the upcoming Scottish independence referendum, or maybe because I’ve realized that the only English people I really like seem to be from the North.

WEE UPDATES

WEE UPDATES

A few wee updates on my life and career (or lack thereof).

I’ve updated my resume with my volunteering activities with Edinburgh & Lothians Regional Equality Council. I’ve also added a link in Publications to the Innovative Learning Week blog, which I’ve been writing for throughout the event.
