Even though it feels like I'm breaking up with six great universities, I'm thrilled to announce that I've chosen to pursue my MS at Ohio University via their online master's program! The choice wasn't easy as I had so many options but in the end I couldn't pass up being a Bobcat! Not only does OU have an amazing graduate program (which is why I applied in the first place) but it's the only school with which I have a personal connection. I've spent more than one weekend in Athens, I've stayed at the OU Inn and I've had the best Court Street has to offer with my favorite OU alum! I've seen firsthand the awesome things OU grads are doing and I can't wait to be one of them 🐾💚 #gradschool#mastersdegree#backtoschool#communication#ouohyeah#bobcats#ohio#ohiouniversity#athens
Spotlight Sunday: eCampus instructor Briju Thankachan
Dr. Thankachan is an Instructional Designer at the School of Nursing and an adjunct faculty in the Patton College of Education. He taught “EDCT 6031 Advanced Topics in Instructional Design” in the first summer session. Get to know him a little better.
1. What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Gardening at the West Side Community Gardens and inviting friends to our home every Saturday for a fellowship dinner.
2. If you could have dinner with anyone famous (dead or alive), who would it be and why?
Dr. Benjamin S. Bloom. Dr. Bloom developed the Blooms Taxonomy. I like his statement, “Most students (perhaps over 90 percent) can master what we have to teach them, and it is the task of instruction to find the means which will enable our students to master the subject under consideration” (Benjamin Bloom, 1968). 3. What is your hidden talent?
Grit—perseverance and passion for long-term goals
4. What is your favorite place to eat?
I do not have a favorite place to eat here in Athens. I rarely eat out, and like to dine in Betsy’s Kitchen (this is my wife’s kitchen ). 5. What is your favorite thing about being an eCampus instructor?
I like integrating task-centered instruction in my classes where the learning task is centered on the context of real world problems. This helps my students to transfer the knowledge and skills to their everyday life.
My day one girl is leaving me 😢 Thank you being an absolutely amazing student & an even better friend. Best of luck at @ohio.university next year! My Tuesdays will never be the same! Love you pretty girl! 💜
This campus is beautiful, going to miss it when I'm gone!! Senior year begins in just about a week!! Crazy to think how fast the time has gone!
For those who don't know, I spent this summer preparing for the Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilots License exam, and passed on the first attempt! Be on the watch for bigger jobs, and commercial work!! #Phantom4 // #ohiouniversity // #MyOhioU // #faapart107 // #nighttime // #dji
Just a bunch of pictures of food from #Saraga Nope, I'm not a #foodie , but am married to one. I love Saraga because you'll see new Americans there from all over the world shopping for staples and treats. It reminds me of #OhioUniversity and #Athens , where this rural NW Ohio boy first came into sustained and meaningful contact with other students from around the world and made a lot of friends. You should check out Saraga, as well as eat in one of the Morse Road corridor's wonderful restaurants. The corridor's a place where you can eat your way around the world and is one of the places that makes Columbus a great place to live (and me..ahem...husky). Let's eat!
Foto espontânea? Pagando de blogueirinha? Perdemos um brinco? Não, provavelmente estamos pensando em alguma gordice 😂 ou numa piada bem maldosa 🤔. Mas a primeira opção é a mais provável 😌! Nunca achei que seria capaz de acha uma pessoa que pensasse parecido comigo, aí achei 3 lindas lindas lindas ❤️🙈. @bsangelica e @feeyuri (eu estava colocando "kim" antes de @) parabéns gatinhas! Que nunca faltem conquistas para comemorar, mas se a coisa não estiver tão boa comemoramos mesmo assim 🥂🍻🍹🍷🍫🍦🍪🌮🍟🥓🍕🍔 #glossygirls#ohiouniversity#athens
First apartment to celebrate the start of her third year at OU 🐾💚 So proud of the woman she has become and continues to grow into being.
I cannot wait to see what this year as in store! Love you endlessly sissy! .
أنا أَدينُ لك بالإعتذار ، عن شخصيتي الصعبة وليدة التعب و الخذلان ، عن الطفلة تبناها الصبرُ وإعتنى بملامحها كي لاتكبر ، رغم كلِ شيء، فسماها الغريب أميرة.
إسمح لي أن أعتذر بالنيابة عن الظروف والماضي ، عن تلك الندوب القبيحة ،نسيها الزمان و مضى.
إسمح لي أن أعتذر ، لأني أظلُ أبتسم، أُعانق الحياة في وجوه البشر ، وأخونك مع الفجر وإفطار الصباح.
إسمح لي أن أعتذر ، لأني أحببتك بصدق البتول لما حملت المسيح بين ذراعيها وتحدت الوجود بقلب الأم الحنون.
