Good to talk to some of you joining us on the MAPP DTP at our induction this weekend, and looking forward to talking with others through the week. Returning students - very much looking forward to having you back with us and continuing your journeys this term!
A few notices and thoughts as we all prepare to start the new (school) year on the MA together...
Adesola and I continue to be your advisors this term, and from this academic year we will be Co-leading the programme itself too, working together to help to grow a wider MAPP community. You should still contact your advisor for tutorial discussions, drafts of work etc, and anything programme related - enrolment, fees, assessment etc can be directed to either of us as Programme Leaders.
Term begins on Monday Sept 28th and runs for 12 weeks through to the Winter break (Dec 18-Jan 3)
Your next submission date (across all modules) is MONDAY JAN 4th 2016.
Our monthly Skype meetings for all MA students resume on Oct 4th, again we will be offering an AM and a PM meeting in the hopes that you can make one of them from wherever you are in the world. We aim to keep these to the first Sunday of each month at 1100 and 1700 (London time).
Adesola co-ordinates the Skype meetings and will post a reminder before each one on her blog (remember to check-in with our blogs weekly for any notices like this), make sure you have sent a contact request to Adesola on Skype <aonthephone> before the call and comment on her blog to let her know which call (1100 or 1700) you want to join. It's helpful when you send a contact request to note that you are on the MAPP DTP so that we know who you are!
As soon as I have an up to date list of all blog addresses (those new to the programme remember to send your advisor your address as soon as you have it set up) I will upload this onto our MA PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE DANCE TECHNIQUE PEDAGOGY PROGRAMME PAGE ON UNIHUB (in the Resources Folder). Don't forget the blogs are your space to communicate with each other, read, leave comments at a time that works for you and do make a point of checking in with our blogs on a weekly basis as this is how we will communicate with you all as a community on the MA.
For this week in preparation for term starting, take the time to download the handbook for your module and have a read through it. Returning students please do check you are enrolled for the correct continuing module (Module Two - module code WBS4630 / Module Three - module code WBS4760), those coming in on Module One you should be enrolling this week (module code WBS4510) any problems do let us know!
