Update and Paula around all day on the 27th September for BAPP Arts

Hi everyone - 

Induction and orientation - yes my thoughts - getting started is sometimes hard to do - start slow - think ahead by reading the materials - you are not late at all - we start next week.

Please look around at others blogs and you should have already started a Skype list o that you can get in touch with others - here is the list that we will now update with new starters http://paulanottingham.blogspot.com/2016/03/bapp-arts-blog-addresses-spring-2015-16.html

Feel good about beginning again !!!! This is a great programme and it is about thinking critically about what you do. There are tasks to guide you but each person will follow their on professional pathway to create the content of their coursework.

I mentioned that I was away this week at a conference http://www.designsonelearning.net and visiting relatives in the States over the weekend. 

The conference has been very good... I saw Siemens take part in mock debate on the first day - he was concerned with well-being for online interaction see his professional blog https://www.edsurge.com/news/2016-08-11-our-technology-is-our-ideology-george-siemens-on-the-future-of-digital-learning. and Audrey Watters who used pigeons to talk about educational technology http://hackeducation.com/2016/09/22/pigeon - check out her professional blog http://audreywatters.com

Good conversations to bring back to BAPP Arts - more coming up on these...

FYI   I am around all day on the Tuesday the 27th via Adobe connect and be sorting out a blog list - PLEASE SEND ME YOUR BLOG ADDRESS if you have just started and I will put it on the list.

Graduation - congratulations everyone!

Congratulations every at the end of another great year 2015-16! I have said in the past that the graduation photos are for me on this day - but this year I asked to share photos - so here is one to represent the day.  I also wanted to mention the honour we received, Lara Bauerle was the 'student responder' this year tat graduation - so she read out the speech for all of the Institute of Work Based Learning Programme. Thanks for doing this Lara!

I was able to "clap loudly' form my front row seat as everyone crossed the stage - and was thinking of all those who have completed their studies this year (and past cohorts!) and the hard work everyone has done. It is not easy working and studying at the same time - and it is a real achievement.  Many on BAPP Arts go onto a next step - or are thinking about it. We do what we can to help because sustaining the benefits from the degree is important - so please stay in touch if there is anything we can do to help.
