Here is a plug for something I am constantly saying . If you are sending something to someone via email imagine it on THEIR computer. They are not you.
Example One: sending work to your advisor: So putting ‘Critical Review’ on it makes sense on your computer because you have only done one but your adviser has up to 20. The thing it is for your advisor is not a ‘Critical review’ it is a piece of work from you. SO PUT YOUR NAME ON IT and put your name on the work itself.
Example Two: sending your CV to a producer. On your computer you may only have your CV so calling the file ‘CV’ helps you find it. But on the producers computer they may have 200 CV’s so what is important about it is that it is from YOU. Put your name on it.
I recommend your name_what it is_date or draft number.doc
When I look at work I send it back with
AA_ your name_ whatever you called it.doc
so you know that, that copy is the one I made comments on. Get it?
See blogs: Positioning of Self
OK its get it together time for what you will be handing in, try to let go of going to do a BA and get into doing a BA mode. Its ok not to be a perfect as you are in your head as long as you do something.
Please think about citations enough said!!! Citations
Module One’s start asking yourself how all the sections in module one link up and where you and your experience are in the links. Start to make notes about how you will writing your reflective essay. see:
Positioning of Self (different from above)
Module Two’s commit to an idea and start to work out how you can best explore it. Nothing to prove just inquiry. see Question(aires)?
Module Three’s the handbook (page 13)is really useful in giving you a structure for your ‘Critical review’:
· Introduction of the Critical review
· Evaluation of the inquiry process
· Analysis of what you experienced (what you found / findings)
· Critical reflection (of the whole situation including what you did and experienced)
aAlso look at: Weeks 6,7,8& 10 (Module three particularly)
Thought: Module ones this structure is not too different from how you would be planning your critical reflection too (only yours is shorter, more succinct).
So if you are a Module Two leave a comment of advice for a Oner. If you are a Three leave a comment for a two or One. If you are a One leave a comment for all of us.
I have tried to link past posts. See what people commented at the time (if they did!) then visit their blogs and see where they were at the time when they made the comment. This is why comments are so cool to leave people!
