This morning group skype went well.
We talked about time management. Which James is going to post on also.
Some tips were
Listen to pod casts on subjects as a way to be thinking about things on the go – like listening to a pod cast on reflection on the tube.
Learn to know times of the day or situations where you will time waste even if you have set time a side for study. For instance maybe it doesn’t work if you block out time in the day to work on BAPP because something always comes up. But you know if you do some study at the end of the day when all your work chores are over you will be able to focus on it.
What’s App voice messages to yourself to capture moments where you have time to think about something but you are on the go
We talked about practicing academic writing (task 2c). Lisa is going to post more of thoughts about this task.
We talked about how this is really about learning a technique. Like learning a ballet technique it is somewhat about knowing the rules of the technique.
These rules include:
Knowing how to cite and why you need to
Being able to find books and use them as reference
Skills for writing Introduction and Conclusions
Jodie is going to write about this part of the conversation have a look at what she says in the comments below.
We also talked about thinking about the final work you are handing in. We said that you should be sending drafts by end of Easter if you want feedback from your advisor.
Also making sure you know what you want to say. Finding this out does not always come in the form of writing it. We talked about how going for a walk or doing a yoga class or talking to someone else are all methods of working out what you want to say (and what your point is). Then writing it down is just a form of presentation.
