I want to continue blogging, I see this as a way of archiving ideas and as a means to improve my communication skills. Things I foresee on the blog this year include more stuff on Glaciology, a mini series on sea level rise, some posts on the Anthropocene.
I’d like to continue to be more innovative in my teaching this year. Things I might try include: more peer-peer learning, exploratory learning methods, a student peer-review assignment, a written exercise involving blogging, …
My aim this year is to get two new papers published. I’m putting together a journal article on modelling the Belcher Glacier (Canada) and also working hard to produce a paper on modelling the Russell Glacier (Greenland).
Things I want to read
I don’t really line up and plan ahead the books I want to read, but I have a few on my radar that I hope to get around to reading these include:
Fiction: The Hunger Games (Ann really enjoyed this, the film comes out in March, so I’ll have to read it before then).
