    Since I've posted a few times I thought I'd give a bit more background on who I am ...

    I came to this site looking for some expertise on finding a DL doctorate program in leadership and, by jove, I think I've got it!

    I live in Canada and well, our education sector for higher learning is a LOT more straightforward. Every university is credible, with some having a better reputation than others. Not so in the U.S. where the majority of DL doctorate programs are!

    So as to my ed background ... I have BA in Humanities '92 from McMaster University, followed by a General MBA '01 also from Mac, followed by an M.Ed. '10 from Brock University. I did all of these part-time and I've gotta say I really like school!

    I think I have a profound intellectual curiosity which is why I started thinking about doing a doctorate. Well to be honest I was thinking about another Masters degree and my boss said "a Masters? I thought you'd be looking at a doctorate!" And so the search began.

    I'm starting my application for Indiana Tech in their PhD in Global Leadership which looks really cool. It's not a "true" DL it has a 3 day residency per year ... but heck 3 days I can do!

    Cheers all!

    Welcome, fellow Canadian :) It's unfortunate how few DL degrees are offered in Canada isn't it? Maybe there should be a new thread started to list available programs ... the two schools that immediately come to mind are

    Athabasca - Programs : Athabasca University

    Memorial - Distance Education and Learning Technologies | Programs Offered Online

    One being relatively cheap, the other not so much :D

    Best of luck with your plan. Please let us know how you progress. BTW, I enjoyed the "My Fair Lady" reference.

    Like maple syrup…..slowly oozing into our nation…..

    I’m just playing around, on a different note I love me some Sponge Bob SP. I have two boys and we watch it all the time when they get home. Surprisingly it has a ton of adult’s only jokes my kids never understand.


    “Dumb old texas”……lolzzzz I think NOT!

    I forbade my six year old from watching Spongebob when he started to laugh like him. I'd much rather he watched Phineas and Ferb, especially the newer ones where the people making it have realized they have as many adult viewers as kids and become intergenerationally hilarious.

    Or, put another way:

    "Aren't you a little old to be watching Phineas and Ferb?"
    "Why yes, yes I am."
