I am going back to school

That’s right. I am going back to the ‘learner’s seat’. I joined a course on Social Network Analysis at Coursera.

 

I am familiar with Social Network Theory and even used it in the past, but I don’t really know how to model social networks. So, this will be a very important addition to my researcher toolbox.

 

Moreover, I am really excited with the opportunity of expanding my knowledge base in a structured, planned fashion – rather than the ad-hoc way in which most of my ‘on the job’ learning takes place.

 

The course starts this Monday, September 24th 2012 and runs for 8 weeks. It includes various readings and assignments, which will be very difficult to complete because this is also the start of the semester (the part where I get to take the ‘teacher’s seat’, that is). But, hey, I like a challenge.

 

Do you want to join me?
