If you're not sure whether to apply, then just do it anyway! It takes about a minute, and what's the worst that could happen?

I'm on the other side of the initial application process, so either you get not-very-harshly rejected by me, or you get to have a lovely virtual chat over a cup of tea.

Some might see that as win-win. Others might not 😅

I’m usually the one doing the interviewing, but this week was my first time being a guest on a podcast. Kind of a niche one, for fans of the band Status Quo. Here’s a link: anchor.fm/quocast/episodes/A-C

Anyone got a good recommendation for a free alternative to Articulate Rise??

Delighted to be presenting my doctoral research at the OE Global 2020 Conference this afternoon. Here is the slide deck I'll be using: slideshare.net/wgibbons/design

For anyone interested in , go and check out the “Being Civil” podcast. It’s based around interviews with recent and not-so-recent graduates, but should appeal to anyone who wants great insights into the life of a Civil Engineer. Link: anchor.fm/beingcivil

Even though it’s been “official” since March, it finally feels “real” now that I’ve gotten my hands the cert (delayed a few months due to you-know-what). No pomp, ceremony, or fancy gown. Just a parchment in the post. This is what photos look like these days, I guess!

If you know anyone interested in , point them towards my new series.

There’s not much out there giving voice to civil engineers, so it has been great to catch up with some graduates so that they can tell their story.


My doctoral thesis has just been published. If you’re interested in and how they play a role in the delivery and impact of an undergraduate module, have a read! You can find it at oro.open.ac.uk/69824/

I passed my Viva last Tuesday. Forgot to mention it in here (sorry Mastodon, I’ve been neglecting you). Very pleased with the outcome, after almost 4 years of researching the roles, implementation and impacts of digital open badges with undergrad students.

For everyone who knew @daibarnes and would like to mark his untimely passing, we're planning a memorial episode of the TIDE podcast.

@dajbelshaw Have you come across an app called “Stoop”? Just heard about it today. It’s a newsletter reading app. Looking forward to digesting Thought Shrapnel on it tomorrow morning.

@dajbelshaw @daibarnes Just finished the latest TIDE. Entertaining and informative as usual. But the burning question: how was the cake??? 🎂

@dajbelshaw Congratulations to Andy Burnham for his role in Thought Shrapnel this week.

I’m currently working in a project to inform and educate people about Electric Vehicles. If you’re thinking of getting one, check out the project website for some real and honest information. evgalway.blogspot.com

Irish politics 

Budget day today. Looks like carbon tax increases have been scrapped. What a shameful situation, coming just 1 day after the IPCC said carbon taxes are the most pragmatic way to address climate change. Government buying votes because they're afraid of the diesel driver revolt. Disgraceful. When we had such great success politically recently (same sex marriage and repealed abortion laws), this is a backwards step for our wee country.
