Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Unfortunately, the first couple of weeks in January are (possibly from now on) going to be dedicated to marking student assignments. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back to posting more regularly soon.
Anyway, to fill the gap, I thought I'd just do an index for all my recent posts on the use of performance enhancers in sports and education. I've listed them in chronological order, since that is probably the best way to read them. As you'll see, they deal more with sports than with education. I'm trying to work on a paper (possibly papers) dealing with the analogy between sports and education at the moment that will cover the educational context in more detail. I mention this several times in the posts that follow.
I think there's some interesting material in here, if you have the time to read it. Enjoy.
