Sinclair (2013). First Thought. (Nindoodemag Bagijiganan: A History Of Anishinaabeg Narrative.)

“… the appropriate acceptance of a bagijigan in Anishinaabemowin is miigwech — often translated as thank you. A clearer translation comes from the verb miigiwe (‘to give’). Miigwech is therefore to give a gift of gratitude and respect for the gift you have received. In other words, miigwech is a bagijigan.” (p 19)

Said (1994). Chapter 1 – Overlapping Territories, Intertwined Histories. (Culture and Imperialism.)

“The wonder of it is that the schooling for such relatively provincial thought and action is still prevalent, unchecked, uncritically accepted, recurringly replicated in the education of generation after generation. We are all taught to venerate our nations and admire our traditions: we are taught to pursue their interests with toughness and in disregard for other societies. A new and in my opinion appalling tribalism is fracturing societies, separating peoples, promoting greed, bloody conflict, and uninteresting assertions of minor ethnic or group particularity.” (p 20)

Franklin (2004). Chapter 7 (The Real World Of Technology).

“… we are not dealing here merely with recasting an old task — that of sending and receiving messages — into a new technological setting. We have to deal with different and quite new social relationships that now superimpose existing ones.” (p 144)

Petre & Rugg (2010). Presentations. (The Unwritten Rules Of PhD Research.)

“… don’t sacrifice the evidence, otherwise your take-away message won’t be convincing. Don’t short-change the context, otherwise the research choices may not make sense. Don’t forget to motivate the question, otherwise the audience might wonder why you’re bothering.” (p 173)

Dyment & O’Connell (2014). When the Ink Runs Dry: Implications for Theory and Practice When Educators Stop Keeping Reflective Journals.

“… we interpreted a reflective journal to be an integrative one in [page break] which the writers critically analyse and grapple with theory, practice, and connections between theory and practice. Importantly, a reflective journal extends beyond the narrower focus of other types of journals by encouraging the writer to take a holistic view of their experience.” (p 418-419)
