Thoughts for the first week of term;
Hopefully you've all been able to access your Module handbooks now (UniHub / MyLearning / MA Professional Practice dance technique pedagogy page / Handbooks folder) and had a little time to read through and maybe begin to digest them.
Maybe you've been able to find (or re-find) a quiet space for your learning?
Got your blogs up and running?
Met fellow MAPPers (online at least)?
If you haven't don't panic! do talk to your advisor if you're stuck with anything though!
Week by week we aim to support and guide your journey through the MAPP via our blogs, posting reminders as to tasks to be looking at, drafts of papers to submit to us, our own observations, thoughts, musings or articles/videos we think may be of interest to you. Please do get into the habit of checking in with our blogs on a weekly basis as well as writing your own, feel free to comment on ours, each others whenever you want to it's a great way to get conversations going and take thoughts further.
Those new to the MA, if you have set up your blog and sent us your address you're now added to the list of blog addresses on unihub so that others can find and follow your blog - have a go this week at posting something, sharing your thoughts coming onto the MA maybe, something of your area of work, so that others can begin to get to know you a little. As we go through the term we will ask you to pick up on elements of each others blogs in order to form seeds of discussion for our monthly Skype meetings.
Our first group Skype meeting is this weekend
SUNDAY OCT 4TH, we offer a morning (1100) and an afternoon (1700) (UK time) slot, you need to check Adesola's blog
and comment to let her know which call you would like to join, make sure you have connected with her on Skype <aonthephone> and she will call you in.
Look forward to talking on Sunday!
