Nerding out on a syllabus design unit for #TBLT and my (virtual) job at Cooperativa Serveis Linguistics de Barcelona. Rereading Long & Crookes (1991),
adding stuff, adding tangents, thinking about how the field has and hasn't moved on in 27 years.
This was very interesting if not very happy research for the second language acquisition field.
The seven sins of L2 research: A review of 30 journals’ statistical quality and their CiteScore, SJR, SNIP, JCR Impact Factors - Ali H. Al-Hoorie, Joseph P. Vitta, 2019. but pay walled.
I wrote a reflection on my MRes studies as part of the course. It might be interesting for some. It also links to the RDF, for those of you who like that kind of thing.
Just had an article accepted as is for a journal, I think. Hopefully this isn't jinxing it, and I don't get a kajillion revisions back. I preprinted it, too. https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv/sa2kw/
Hey, if anybody out there in the Fediverse is looking for a 2yr post-doctoral fellowship in philosophy or history of biology with my group in delightful francophone Belgium, drop me a DM or send me an e-mail! UCLouvain will be opening up a call over the summer, at which my center has been pretty successful in the past.

question abt external phd directors
so i work with black studies, indigenous & latine studies
also phenomenology and artistic research.
but my current director has suggested i find a second director that works more with black/latine phenomenology, & that'll probably be someone more USA based vs Spain.
I've no idea how to approach professors in USA abt asking them to be a director or what the protocol for that is; pay, etc. ..

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:
1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.
2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.
3. Use camel case in your hashtags.
