Find attached my fourth and final assignment for the Bangor Mindfulness course. This one is for the Research module. It is supposed to be a description of a research project that you intend to do later in the course in a form close to what would be suitable for submission to the ethics panel.
The proposal makes reference to a prototype application I developed that you can access at http://breathfollower.appspot.com/ if you would like to try it for yourself. I have done some work to take this further as a mobile application and will blog on it if I get it to a state worthy of release.
By the time I was writing this up I had decided I wouldn’t proceed with the course so it was a kind of fantasy proposal rather than a serious one. I did a ten minute presentation on it and the tutors pointed out that they didn’t think it would produce an effect in the two week duration of the experiment but I did nothing to change this and the marked me down accordingly. I got 69% which is just 1% short of an ‘A’ – always the bridesmaid never the bride I guess 🙂 I hope you enjoy reading the assignment.
I’ll put another post together in the next few day summarising my reasons for leaving the Bangor course.
