01:32 am - A course of study for ADF Initiates is now in planning
I've mentioned before, I have been thinking about how to work out a plan of study for candidates for Initiation within ADF. I have the most basic framework down. . . next is to decide on the two schedules that will need to run concurrently (one for journaling requirements, at least 10 months worth) and one for the "academic" requirements (which are so much fewer than I expected them to be).

Right now, I'm looking at basing this off the "nine sacred woods" and employing a few "druidic tools" that people will need to obtain/create. Of course, that requires me to put them together, myself. . . which should be amusing.

Anyway, for those who follow my projects on the ADF Wiki, the rough outline of the course is there. I just spent a few hours developing it in an effort to get something "portable" that I could work on no matter where I happen to be. . . Originally, it was just going to be in my notebook in hard copy, but I find I lose too many things that way.

Oh, and I'll need some volunteers to test it, once it's done. It's not going to be as "WotY-like" as I thought it would be at first, which is good: that format doesn't do well for the kinds of skills we need to teach for Initiation.

I'm working on my initiates letter. If it gets approved, I would be willing to be a guinea pig. :D

I look forward to seeing your IP letter get submitted :) I'll be happy to provide you with whatever I have when you're approved ;)

I'll help test it. I've been leaning towards the Initiate Path anyway.

I'm game! I know I've got a few courses finished, and I am half way through a couple more, but I am at a loss right now of where to go next. I am stalled on a couple of exit standards, one in Bardic 1 because it is LONG and one in IE studies because the research is LONG. I feel a strong pull to start either the Litrugy Practicum or Magic 1, so I can move on to Magic 2/Trance 1, but I kinda feel like I should finish the ones I started. I just keep getting all my free time sucked away other projects with tighter deadlines. Heh, sometimes life is like that.

Okay, so now I'm rambling. *Ahem* I'm in! Ping Emerald. She and Maria are starting their IP work too, but they don't have livejournals (and if they do I am not their friends, and if this is the case, I'd appreciate a friend suggestion of sorts). :)

Thanks, again, for your hard work!

While still working on my DP, I'm definitely available for editing and reviewing of it :)

My IP is on hold while I work on my BSN, but I am in in a little over a year.

I've doe about half of the courses already for CTP1, but I need the other half for CTP2, so I'd be willing to test it.
