Great to meet our new starters during your induction today...looking forward to having your voices and experiences join our MAPP community this term!
Don't forget to drop us an email with your blog address once you have one set up, take a look around at ours in the meantime to get a sense of each others (you'll find links to other MAPPers on our blogs in previous posts), and maybe use this as your starting point for what to write in your first blog...'how did it feel to start a blog? How did you approach it? ...
Remember you don't have to have the answers, but you're offering something for others to comment on and share their experiences with you too.
Take this next week until term officially starts on Feb 13th to read through handbooks (I'll be emailing these over the weekend to those not yet on UniHub as discussed), make a note of key dates, think about how and where you might study in and around your work and life, let employers (if relevant) know you're undertaking the MA so that they can support you, be aware of your research/work relationship to come, make a first meeting date with your advisor (this will be emailed over the weekend also) to chat and discuss best modes of contact for you, clear a desk space, buy a new notebook or open a new MAPP folder on your desktop and begin embracing the student-you!
You'll have a chance to meet others on the MA at our first monthly discussion group via Skype on SUNDAY FEB 12TH at either 1100 or 1700 (UK time).
Any questions in the meantime, feel free to drop us an email, or a Skype message anytime!
