Friday Tutorials

Hi Ste and Dave

Just in case you're coming in tomorrow for a tutorial can you make it after Midday. Dean is giving a presentation to year 2 at 11:00 in J313, and me and Stas are sitting in so they won't be available until Midday.

Part-time Enrolment Date and Room

Hi part-timers,

Its enrolment time next week and due to different work schedules it looks like it will be spread across the two days. Either way we will do exactly the same thing.

I have a simple form printed for you to sign to enroll. Then I'll give you an initial briefing on your final project. This will be followed by time for you to write up your own brief based upon your rationale. So bring with you a copy of your rationale and a pen.

Those coming in on Wednesday 16th will be enrolling in room K202 in the Business College building. That is the building next to SKB with the glass entrance facing into the car park.

Those coming in on Friday 18th will be enrolling in room J313 in the SKB building (the games room).

The sessions will begin at 9:30am and last all morning.

New year Final Year

Hi Part-timers,

Hope you've had a good summer. Enrollment is nearly here for your last year and module before eventual graduation.

Your final Production module will be self-directed with specialist-tutor support by Stas and Dean. The emphasis is on you delivering what you've planned during the Pre-Production module. If during the summer you've changed your plans that's fine as the beginning of the next module will give you some time to revise your idea.

Apart from enrollment you'll have very little contact with me, as you'll be arranging tutorials with your specialist-tutors. Remember keep them updated on a regular basis to avoid any problems. It is usually fatal to a student if they try to go-it-alone without showing progress to your tutors… silly errors or bad judgments are made this way.

Tony and Kev are coming in on Wednesday 16th September at 9:30am (room TBC) to enroll, as their supervisors cannot swap days to Friday. Steve and Dave, I don't know where you stand regarding a day change to Friday for this next year. If you can it takes pressure off of Stas and Dean (see previous July posts). Do you both want to also come in to enroll on Wednesday 16th or the following Friday? Let me know ASAP so I can plan.

On enrollment day I will also brief you on the last module - especially about the model book 30% component of your final mark.

You've all had a fantastic 1st year with some fantastic grades. In your final year DON'T CHASE THE GRADE. Just concentrate upon doing a great project that answers the learning outcomes. Be ambitious but don't blind yourself.

I look forward to you all succeeding in July as BA (Hons) graduates and starting a new chapter in your lives.
