Have Conferences, Will Travel

Apparently when it rains, it pours – for conference proposal acceptances, that is. Since this semester is light on course work, heavy on dissertation proposal research, and I have a amazingly supportive supervisor/department, I will be fortunate enough to be able to attend a few conferences this term.

    Hi Laura, sounds great! I’ll be in Maastricht too and would be great to catch up. I was thinking of getting all the Aussies in town together for a dinner. What do you think?

      Hi Linda! Great to hear that you’ll be in the Netherlands as well. I am never opposed to a meet up with the Aussies. 🙂 Please keep me posted on your travel plans [laura dot pasquini at unt dot edu].

    I wish I was going to one of these conferences because it would have been great to meet you in person!
    Maybe next time… but congratulations on all the proposal acceptances! 🙂

      One day our paths will cross, Priscilla. I had to say no to ISTE – which I am sure you are attending. Keep me posted on your travels & presentations too!
