  Sabbatical plans
Belatedly, I am looking into possible places to visit for a few weeks of intensive teaching during my sabbatical. (Though late this is still before I have got any "official" confirmation of my proposed sabbatical next semester. I know, I know, I have no teaching next semester in the timetable, so presumably the sabbatical plans I submitted in back in February and adjusted in March have been accepted de facto.)

The most obvious possibilities are actually NOT obvious. The Protestant University of Congo would be great to revisit after more than a decade and a half, but the political/military situation in Congo is not great and the cost of getting there is... SAIACS with whom both Carey and various NZ agencies have partnerships has two OT teachers of their own, both with doctorates... Theologians without Borders first suggested Sierra Leone - but see UPC above, if I'm to go to an Affrican country that has suffered from years of civil war why not Congo where I am known...

Then there's the mysterious ‘Come Over and Help Us!’ which we are following up, sounds challenging and worthwhile. In the meanwhile if you know somewhere, where an OT teacher could be useful, in a few weeks, and gain a wider understanding of the world. Teaching at any post-secondary level, in English or French, then why not make your pitch...
