> Hello, my name is Wendy Crebbin,
> I work in the School of Education at the University of Ballarat,
> Victoria, Australia.
> I have been a fairly quite member of the group but hope that I might
> be able to make some connections with people who may be working in
> similar areas
> My research area is focusing on constructivism in learning, and at the
> moment I am facinated about the ways in which people make choices
> about how they will store and/or retreive information.
> That is, I am working from assumptions that there are underlying mechanisms
> and procedures which preceed, are part of, inform, the meaning
> making. I suspect that much of this goes on in what is called the
> 'primitive brain' rather than/as well as, the cortex. But not having
> any connections with neuro-- it only a hypothesis.
> The reason I am writing now is that I will be based in Sheffield, England for
> six months, July - December and then hope to spend some time in Canada
> and/or USA in January next year.
> I am hoping that during that time I might be able to meet up with
> people in Europe, U.K and North America, who might be working in
> similar areas and/or feel that we could contribute to each other's
> work.
> Looking forward to your responses
