This article acts as the third log entry of my 22-day stay in Dublin City University for my PhD thesis and possible research and project collaboration with the host research unit – National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) of DCU.
Today I finally got the chance to meet Gráinne (https://www.dcu.ie/nidl/people/adjunct-professor.shtml). And below I share with you the conversation I had with her in a 35 minutes’ Skype talk.
Gráinne is an Irish name and should be properly pronounced as “Gronia” (like “onia” in Sonia).
So first of all, I presented my three missions to be in Dublin.
- PhD thesis
- Interview coding and analysis for MOOC instructor interviews’ scripts
- JoHLSTE manuscript revision
A folder has been shared with three sub-folders related to these three missions in Google Drive.
Then Gráinne made the following comments.
