About to finish … finally :-): Globally Networked Learning-Processes in Higher Education

Just a short update and a (last – in regard to my M.A Thesis) call for Feedback šŸ™‚

Some time has passed, since I shared the progress in writing on my M.A. Thesis … which does not mean I did not work on it šŸ˜‰ – The next three weeks will be a very busy time, reading last papers to meet the state of the art, writing last sections and trying to bring everything together… to make it readable to anyone else than me :-).

So here is my recent structure and if you have some ideas to make the structure (even more ;-)) focussed, or if you have important and recent information I do not have yet (I do not hope so, but love to get it in case …) – feel free to answer or mail …

And here it is:
