Last week I wrote a guest blog post for the National College of Ireland Blog about a day in the life of a Lecturer, which was published yesterday. I chose the last Wednesday of Semester II to log my activities for the day - this was my longest and busiest day of the week. It was fairly typical of my work day - especially ones where I have classes. Sometimes I feel than when I have a class I don't get any work done! But then I remember that I am a Lecturer and should be spending time in class. I played down the amount of administration that I do - this is the boring part of the job that I don't like.
Here's the text of the blog post (Photo credit: Bonnie Cullen):
Regular readers of the NCI blog may recognise Dr Eugene O’Loughlin, NCI lecturer, author, Harley-Davidson enthusiast, blogger and YouTube content creator. Several years ago Eugene wrote this blog post about NCI’s first foray into blogging and we've finally taken him up on his suggestion!
It’s Wednesday during the final week of the Semester and a busy day lies ahead. As I teach an evening class on Wednesdays I normally do not come into the office until about 11:00am. This gives me some time at home to check personal email and I also write a blog post about the Open Plaques project in the UK that is trying to create a “Museum of the Street”, by recording on-line the commemorative plaques that we see on houses where famous people lived.
