I created this as a place to collect thoughts about three fundamental activities that define much of what we do as scholars: learn, research, communicate. I hope it will be useful to me, to my students, perhaps to my colleagues and others.
- Acquire new knowledge or skills.
- Generate or create new knowledge or skills.
- Transfer knowledge or skills to others.
There are broad areas of scholarly life excluded: fundraising and administration leap to mind. But those aren't really scholarship are they? Teaching I do include, in communication.
I got the idea to start collecting my notes on these topics in a blog while reading a physics blog, Uncertain Principles.
