Today’s PM session was great, we talked about:
Ethics: some people had not made the campus and non-campus sessions on ethics for Module 2 and then ethics is an important concept in Module One and Module Three so people wanted to talk through ideas a little. Ethics is about how you impact or are experienced by the people around you. We talked about this is terms of professional practice – Ethics is about how you present yourself and handle what you do - not just what you can get away with, but remembering you are representing yourself and who you want to be. It is about how you touch the world. We talked about how when planning in Module Two it is more than just the legal requirements. These are just the bare minimum of what should be expected of you. If all you write about are the legal requirements then you are just doing the bare minimum. Pip is going to post on this also:
What is more important in terms of BAPP activity is what you mean behind the ‘ethical’ words. When you say ‘I don’t want to hurt anyone’ – course you don’t but who are you to determine when they are hurt or not? The ethics is how you think about this not just in not doing it.
Have a look at Sarah’s thoughts too:
Questions: We talked about questions:
- · Not having too many.
- · Not asking ones that require a yes or no answer but ones that help you learn MORE.
- · Not being too specific
- · Not being to broad
- · !!!
Literature Review: Lastly we talked about literature reviews and thought about rewording to better understand what they are.
Literature Review is not equal to ‘Book Review’
Literature Review is more like ‘Library Review’ - looking at what is out on a number of subjects that ‘intersect’ with your inquiry. This is about looking for the themes that are across the books, articles etc…Lara is going to post on this also:
The next Tuesday Coffee House Group skype sessions are AM and PM on Tuesday April 28th (I’ll post a reminder on my blog nearer the time).
