Crowdsourcing to help me finance a part-time PhD, for year one (one of five). Unfortunately, in Scotland, unlike England, there is no government support. Crowdfunder allows people to support the endeavour for as little as £1.00.
For me, it has been the equivalent of climbing a mountain to have achieved a distinction for my masters. My high school experience was of a system that did not understand neurodiversity. My hope is that in undertaking this PhD that this adventure would inspire many adults that they can achieve dreams no matter what life throws at them.
The PhD is in education; my focus is adult education in the area of experiential learning and embodied learning. People that support me will be able to follow a blog/vlog/podcast of my adventure.
