Thanks everyone for your enthusiastic input to our first campus-based sessions today, Wednesday 11 June. In particular, we're grateful to the students who took time to spend time with our mobile film unit outlining what they felt to the key messages from our discussion of Critical thinking and Finding academic resources. We will take the same approach in all of our teaching weeks: asking you to summarise what you felt were the most important ideas and learning strategies to emerge from our lectures and tutorials.
As we emphasised during our Introduction to the Academic Skills course, please take time outside of class to make use of the resources on this site to further improve your understanding of what we covered in class. You will find this week's quiz on the Critical Thinking page. In addition we strongly encourage you to take time familiarising yourself with the Course Descriptor and briefs for the two assessment exercises, all of which can be found on the Study and assessment page. Having been provided with a reading list for each assignment, heard abut strategies for finding academic resources, and then having visited the university library, you are well placed to begin your research and thinking into the Individual essay and Team Project assignments.
Finally, if there's anything that you didn't understand in class, or if you have any other concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thanks again for your attention and enthusiasm today: we're already looking forward to working with you again next Wednesday 19 June.
James (and Alice)
