First Experiences at Bilkent

Last week, I had the opportunity to visit Graduate School of Education (GSE) at Bilkent University to meet faculty and the grad. students. The trip went very well, as well as the visit itself. I met with Dr. Sands and other faculty members with whom I'll be working next year. I tried the understand the Bilkent system for teacher education, which was more intensive than the standard Council of Higher Education (CoHE) program. My first impressions were very positive about the system, faculty, and particularly the 7 master's students and two PhD students I met during my one-day visit. I am looking forward to working with them; to produce, to produce, and to produce-to accomplish many many great things.

I did not have much chance to wonder around the campus; however, I visited my lojman, which is tiny but cute in a way. I may come back before the official starting time in late October to join the selection process for the incoming students. Exciting, very exciting...
