Well, a third of the year has gone past already!!! It has been a busy one for me. As usual, I have many things on the go. The year started with finishing off loose ends on a project funded by the Caring Futures Institute’s COVID-19 grant scheme. I was working as a qualitative researcher, conducting interview analysis in a team of researchers led by Professor Joanne Arciuli on a project which explored a new way to support the literacy needs of children with autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. The team will be soon be seeking to publish our findings in academic journals.
I have also started a new one-day-a-week position as a Scholarly Fellow in the Disability and Community Inclusion Unit at Flinders University. The role involves being part of a panel which is contributing to the development and delivery of topics within the suite of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the disability discipline. This includes advising on the development of teaching materials, delivery of lectures, tutorials, workshops, practicals and other innovative teaching and learning strategies.
On top this, I have been managing all the disability-related stuff in my life, such as physio sessions, NDIS accommodation applications, exercise, support workers assisting me daily and trying to have a new tricycle built, to name a few.
After a hiccup with the supply of coffee beans, DrDazz Coffee is now working with a local roaster in Adelaide to develop two coffee blends. One is the DrDazz Seasonal Blend and the other is called The Research Assistant. Check out the two blends at www.drdazzcoffee.com.au. Why not order a 250g bag today to try?
Is it coffee time yet?
