Global Views, Personal Perspectives: Connecting to Self as Scholar
Simmons, Nicola
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v2 p140-144 2009
A global view requires not only a broader perspective, but also greater depth to anchor it firmly. In increasingly changing contexts, are we connected to ourselves in a way that feeds our spirits and nourishes our work? A professional sphere based only on research and practice risks being unbalanced and may jeopardize our well-being as academics. The activities outlined in this paper encourage you to add a third support: integration of self as scholar towards a more balanced perspective.
