I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! November really flew by with most of my time devoted to completing a full draft of my dissertation, which has now been submitted to my supervisors for feedback. It feels great to have hit this milestone! While it was difficult to be away from family on Thanksgiving, we had a nice time celebrating with friends and certainly have a lot to be grateful for!
An article I wrote about the use of Restorative Practices in the Residence Halls at Victoria University was published this month is Conflict Resolution Quarterly. You can read the full article here.
I contributed several pieces to the most recent NACRJ newsletter, the Restorative Well, which you can find here.
The most recent Rotary Peacebuilder Newsletter is on the topic of journaling and will be posted here soon.
Finally, I was very excited this month to receive a Postgraduate Research Excellence Award. This award recognizes a postgraduate student that:
- Displays academic rigour, excellence, originality, and/or creativity;
- Demonstrates an impact within the scholarly, economic, or wider stakeholder communities;
- Displays clarity of expression that addresses an educated but non-expert audience;
- Advances knowledge in the field and/or contributes to knowledge.
It was a real honor to receive the award and I feel very grateful!
