But it is an intro…
Last night quite a few of you mentioned that you’re sick. Well, I’m still sick and I don’t really want to be on YouTube looking not-so-great and sounding pretty rough too. So, I’m going to give you a text run down of things I wanted to chat to you about this week instead of a video. I hope you don’t mind!
Here’s what I wanted to talk to you about this week…
Assignment 1 checkpoint this Sunday
Our first check point for Assignment 1 is this Sunday night at 11.59pm. That means that your posts from Week 2 through Week 7 will be marked after that time. You can edit your posts right up til that time. There’s a blog post scheduled for Tuesday night that will run you through a checklist of things to look at to help you polish up your posts.
Assignment 2 and 3
I will be posting a briefing video on A2 and A3 later this week, as soon as my voice is back!
If you haven’t yet started looking for an assignment partner/group, I recommend you start doing that now. The best way to do it is to post on your blog about what you would like to focus on in the assignment, your expectations in terms of the grade you are looking to achieve, and any important information about how you like to work that your peers should know. If you’re looking for a partner, keep an eye out on your peers’ blogs.
Once you have found a partner or a group, you can sign your group up on the sign up sheet.
Next week’s class will focus on planning and proposing programs, and we will be going through an approach to writing proposals in detail, which you can apply to your A2 and A3.
I have added an assignment clinic class to Week 9, immediately following our Twitter chat, to discuss any questions you have about A2, which is due at the end of Week 9. This session will be online-only and is now on the class schedule.
I think that’s it, but I’m very happy to answer any questions you might have about this week’s happenings.
PS. Sort of random aside, and fun trivia for the day… Are you familiar with Magritte’s Treachery of Images? Whenever I start something with ‘This is not a…’ I instantly think of Magritte. Art geek moment. Curious about what I’m talking about? Watch this video.
