@Phil -IOR Post-


So farI've been banging my head against a wall, losing time, getting distracted and generally failing to be productive despite trying.

I've done some thumbnails which I will scan into this post in the morning. There is some Photoshop work on the Uni computers that I'll also upload. I'm behind by three reviews. I haven't really thought about the essay question.

The solution I think will be to come into Uni all day everyday, thus I avoid distraction at home, get everything done in time.

    Hey Ollie,

    Stop panicking. And yes, you're right - whatever your set-up is at the moment, it ain't working for you. There's bugger all I can say constructively about your project work, as there's bugger all for me to look at... You know, one of the points of the IOR is to give students a micro-deadline for getting their s**t together, and so being able to see their progress at the halfway stage... Anyway, you're obviously feeling bad enough without me wading in telling you stuff you already know. Please see - and READ - the assignment advice post below. And, how about coming to see me on Monday? Come and find me in the office after 2pm - before The Dark Crystal, and let's get some stuff talked out and into the open.

    Here is a list of links back to the CGAA Group Blog, where I have recently uploaded loads of information regarding the way I want students to tackle their written assignments. As you now prepare your unit 2 assignments on production design, pay close attention to the advice given. I will be looking for clear improvement in terms of use of language, academic ‘voice’, use of conventions, argument structure and correct methods of referencing.

    Academic style/Do’s & Don’ts

    1st Person to 3rd person conversions

    Use of footnotes

    How to satisfy essay criteria/assignment presentation/hyperlink to referencing methods

    Also – be sure to check out the 2 student essays uploaded to myUCA/Space/Unit Materials – good examples of degree level written assignments. Take the time to read them.
