Orientation – Managing Your Time and Tasks at Uni

August 14, 2019


Okay so let’s make a start, I don’t want
to start ‘Managing your Time and Tasks’ too late. So welcome to the University
welcome to Melbourne if you’ve moved here to come to university and welcome
to this session on Managing your Time and Tasks. I’m Jo-Anne and I’m with the
Academic Skills team here at the University and with me are Jane and
Kirsty from the library. My email is up there on the first slide and it will
also be on the last slide. That’s in case you want to email me to get the slides
afterwards but as you might also have noticed we are also being videoed so
this session will be available on video for people to watch as well. If you want
to refresh your mind later on. So what are we going to cover today? We’re first
of all going to talk a bit about thinking about how you work and what
your habits and preferences and strengths are when you’re managing your
time and tasks. We’re going to discuss a little bit what’s expected of you at
University which you might already be familiar with and we’re also going to
provide you with some strategies and resources to help meet those
expectations and goals and priorities that you’ll have. All of these things
will also help you in your future careers so it’s not just a case of
getting the skills for university, this is something that you’re going to be
using going forward. If you’ve already been in the workplace you’ll know how
relevant this is to your career. So our first little activity requires you to
get on the internet and place yourself somewhere on this spectrum so you need to go to PollEv.com/joanneking So on the very left hand side of the screen you can see a person
who loves flexibility, who likes going with the flow,
perhaps in academic studies this person who always leaves things to the last
minute and might be late for things but is always ready to do any fun stuff with
their friends. Over on the right hand side you’ve got someone who likes making
strict plans and might get a bit uncomfortable if those plans change so
there’s no right or wrong answer here it’s more of a reflection exercise to
think about how you work or how you like to schedule your time already so I think you’ve all had a chance to
think about that even if maybe you haven’t had a chance to respond yet so
the point of doing this exercise is to think about how you feel about your
current time management persona so to speak. Thinking about your way of working
whether you schedule things down to the last minute or whether you
leave things until they’re completely urgent and it’s the last minute job – is
it something that you feel you don’t like? Is it something that you wish you
could change or is it something that you feel helps you work really well? Maybe an
example that of that is somebody who works well under pressure. So once again, no wrong answers but the question is do you need to develop strategies at the
other end of the spectrum to where you’re currently sitting to help you
manage your time at university? Let’s take a scenario: it’s week 8 so in a
12 week semester this is getting towards the end, the big assessment tasks are due
and you might have in the next two weeks two group assignments, a presentation and
a literature review to deliver and you still need to do the weekly readings for
all your subjects and make study notes for your exam preparation. You also may
want to do 20 hours of part-time work or you might be committed to it
and you want to do 8 hours of exercise and then you also need to do your
everyday things like eating and sleeping and calling your mum and just relaxing
in general. So is your current strategy going to work if you’re completely
flexible with your time how are you going to know what to prioritize and
when things are due? How are you going to get it all done if you can’t have any
flexibility in your timetable? What’s going to happen when something crops up
and you can’t move things around so the point is that you need to develop skills
in both ways. So we’ve heard a bit of a think about your habits your time and
task management habits already let’s take a look at what’s expected of you at
University so full-time study, we think of as
a 40-hour week commitment so full-time study you should think of it as
equivalent to 40 hours a week of work. In comparison with school do you think you
do more or less self-study? More or less? yeah more. What about research and
reading? More or less and how much content is there? More or less? I think
probably more – because there’ll be more content covered in a shorter amount
of time. What do you think about the assignment load? More assignments or
fewer assignments? Probably more on the go at once. How much interaction do you
think you will have with your instructors and tutors compared to
school? More or less? yeah mixed one there I think probably definitely in
terms of your lecturers you will probably have less interaction than you
would do with your school teachers I mean for sure or your lecturers these
are not going to be people that you’re seeing for hours a week, there might be
people that you see for one hour a week or two hours a week. So you might get
less feedback to develop yourself from and you’ll also have group work which
could be something that you don’t have much control over so you need to
negotiate within the group but other people will have other commitments so
you need to be able to manage that and again similarly all of these things are
things that you’ll face in your career You’ll need to be able to work more
independently, manage things on your own and work with other people. So let’s move
on to kind of a toolkit of strategies and resources that you need to start
developing so if you can still meet all these expectations given the time you
have So the first strategy I’d like to
mention is planning your time and to do that you have to look at all the demands
that you have on your time and they could be things like study of course, work,
family and other things in your life and you need to think about how long you’re
going to spend on each of these activities and how much time you have. So
my first recommendation is to get a big semester planner and put in first of all
when your assignments are due. So this is an example we’ve got 4 different
assignments in this one and each of the submission dates marked. Who do you think
will tell you when to start these assignments? -Yourself. Yourself, yeah so you have to
tell yourself when to start or in other words, no one will tell you when to start
they will just tell you when it’s due. Your lecturers, your tutors they’re not
going to be chasing you down finding out if you’ve started, so you need to be able
to start estimating that for yourself how long things will take and putting
that into your semester planner. So here we’ve got this student’s estimate of how
long something will take when they have to start and they’ve done that for each
submission they have. Now you’ll see here as well that some of these assignments
will overlap. The fact that you had another assignment due on the same day
is not a good enough excuse for handing something in late. It’s understood that
every student has lots of assignments happening at once so you need to start
thinking about how you’re going to plan for that overlap and how you’re going to
prioritize things, which we’ll talk a bit more about in one of the other
strategies. So we’ve looked at semester planning, what time period might you have
to plan next? You’ve planned out your semester,
how do you break that down? What other time periods do you need to plan for? Tell the person next to you okay so you’ve planned your semester. Now tell
me, you’ve planned your semester, what else do you have to plan? How do you know
where you have to be next week? yeah the day okay alright so I’m guessing you
probably have like a weekly timetable do you know what classes you have to be at
next week? okay great I’m sure you know this maybe you’re just a little bit
nervous about talking in front of the whole group but that’s fine so no doubt
you’ll have some kind of weekly timetable to work from and the first
thing that you want to put in that are going to be your firm commitments so
that includes your classes or your lectures, tutorials, seminars and
your teaching, your classroom commitment time and then another example
of something that’s like a firm commitment that you need to put in could
be something like part-time work it could also be something like exercise
you might be involved in a team sport or you might want to go to some gym classes.
So we’ve put in those firm commitments and actually it looks pretty empty so
you’ve got a lot of white space so what are you gonna do with the rest of this
time? Are you going to get two more jobs and drive for UberEats? Make a fortune? -Study ‘Study’, excellent so we said that full-time study is like full-time work so all of
this other time you need to carve up for your independent study well I’ve got in
there is is a forty between the blue classes and the blue study blocks that’s
forty hours a week so we can see now it’s actually quite full. Within that
study time there are all sorts of things you can do in the library. That’s right
Jo-Anne, the library can be great tool to assist with your study time not only
in the fact that there are lots of study spaces in the library, so Kirsty here is
on the University library homepage and as you can see from here you can sign up
for workshops and tours which you could sort of add in to your- to your study
time if they’re going to be workshops relevant to your assignments you can
also book study or discussion rooms and computers as well in the library which
you can use in your breaks between lectures to you know use that study time
more effectively so this is the Bookit system. Once you log in, you can book
discussion rooms or computers to use during your study time and that’s
something that you’re going to want to think about in terms of what time of day
suits you best so I’ve set this one up as a bit of a almost nine-to-five type
arrangement but you might find you study better earlier early in the morning or
late in the evening. Just make sure that oh- I would recommend if you are more
likely to study late in the evening and sleep a little bit longer just make sure
you’re usually awake when you’re going to have exams because it’s not really
any fun sitting in a nine o’clock exam when you normally get up at midday and
I’m sure your classes will be earlier than that but again this is something
that you need to manage yourself So once we’ve put all those things in
you’ll see that there is still some time for you in that week to have free time
to relax, to socialise, to do maybe engage in all the other hobbies and interests
you have in your life or just watch Netflix maybe. Depends what you want.
okay so within those blocks of study time, the next thing that you need to
think about is how you’re going to break those blocks of studying up so we
suggest that you schedule frequent, regular, intensive, limited sessions which
is basically a bit of an ugly acronym but what it means is if you sit down and
if you take a whole day for example so let’s say
maybe this is Saturday or a day you don’t have any classes if you sit down
and try and study for six whole hours and then have a short break and then try
and study for four more hours you’ll have two peaks in your concentration at
the start of those study periods and then it will drop off for the rest of
the time you’re sitting looking at your study material. So what we suggest is
having breaks more often. So frequent like lots of little study bursts, regular
so you’re doing this maybe every day the week or like six days a week, intensive
so you’re studying for two hours and then you have a break for 30 minutes and
just that limited time as well where you think about what you want to get done in
a two hour block and you keep your focus on that and work hard until your break
time. This is a much more efficient way of working than sitting down and trying
to read something for hours and hours and hours on end because the risk is
that you might lose interest. So on the Academic Skills website so we talked a
little bit about using planners to manage your time. On the Academic Skills
website we’ve got a link to all resources over on the right hand side
and then we’ve got some of our guides or flyers that you can download. We’ve
categorized them into different groups the group on time and task management
has a few different Word Docs that you can download as planner templates and it
also has some little videos there just to show you how to construct those so you’ve planned out all your time
let’s have a look at the second strategy I want to cover and that’s about setting
clear goals for your study time so this process might be familiar to some of you
already there’s an acronym ‘SMART’ that we use to make sure our goals are
achievable like make sure our goals are well
constructed, that they’re specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and
time-bound. This is something that helps with your efficiency so we’ve got an
example here that talks about finding articles in databases relevant to an
assignment and we’re going to show you how to do that through the library
that’s right so let’s say you’ve got a task and you need to find five articles
for this task using that sort of SMART framework you can use one of the the
library tools called Discovery to more efficiently find articles. So the great
thing about Discovery is it sort of a combination between the traditional
catalogue which includes books and ebooks but it also contains full-text journal
articles so not just a link to you know one of the journals you’re interested in
but the articles within them so about 80% of the library content that we have
access to is available through Discovery A little bit later in the session we’ll
show you where you can find that sort of missing 20% that isn’t in Discovery but
so let’s say from this homepage there’s a search box at the top which you can
use to search Discovery. So Kirsty is going to run a search for social
interaction and university students let’s see if we can find some articles
on this topic so as you can see here we’ve got a bit
of a results page something to bear in mind when you’re running searches trying
to find relevant articles is you can sort of filter your results so down the
left hand side you can select to only view scholarly peer-reviewed articles
which are sort of more authoritative to use for any of your university
assignments because an expert in the field has read over that journal and
sort of said ‘yes everything has been well researched in this article’ so it’s
sort of a tick of approval to use. You could also you know filter by date range
or if you had a certain source type you were interested in you could run those
filters down the side. Then from here you can select to add articles to folders so
this is great as Jo-Anne was mentioning if you’re working on a number of
assignments at once you may not have time to read the articles for assignment
3 because you’re working on assignment 1 but if you select the folder icon on the
right you can save them into a folder for assignment 3 to come back to when
you’re ready to start researching for that. So Discovery is a really useful
tool to help save some of that time when you’re sort of multitasking on your
research assignments yep so I’m just also going to ask Kirsty now that we’ve
had a bit of a look at some of the time management techniques you can find out
more information about time management techniques in the Academic Skills Hub
which is a community on the LMS that you can enrol in yourself and then you can
work through different modules relating to various skills so it’s just up on
screen there there’s a link to it on our home page and you can see Kirsty’s
pointing out the modules there, you can see time management there the third one
in. So there’s a few different time-saving devices for you and the next
strategy that we want to talk about is actually about studying effectively and
efficiently. So have a think about which study strategies have worked for
you in the past perhaps when you’re at school you found
it quite easy to learn maybe. perhaps you found that you could read something once
and as long as it made sense to you, you would retain it. At university there will
be so much content that it will be difficult to remember everything the
first time you read it so you definitely need to place an emphasis on applying
active learning strategies to the material that you encounter so that it
really cements that knowledge in your mind. It probably won’t be enough just to
read something once and remember it so active learning strategies typically
involve transforming and manipulating the material in some way that helps you
understand it and remember it. There are different strategies for this, which
we’ll have a look at but you do need to match the type of strategy you use to
the type of material you’re trying to learn. So for something you need to
memorize maybe in the science field you might want to construct flashcards and
if you need to be able to describe a process that could be something that
might help you if you transformed a description in words into a diagram or a
flowchart. So what we’re going to do now is have a look at a few different types
of activities and I’d like you to choose which ones you think would be effective
so we’re going back to the poll same address and click each one that you think would
be an effective learning strategy you might think more than one is an
effective strategy so pick as many as you think okay let’s take a look so thinking about
which of these strategies really transforms the material okay so these
are your responses so you’ve identified the explaining and debating issues with
other students would be effective and I think that’s really true so you really
have to know what know what you’re discussing to be able to debate it with
someone so that’s a good learning strategy. The second one has a lower
response there copy and memorized sections of readings so this is an
example of something that might make you feel like you’re busy but have you ever
copied something from one place to another and then realized you don’t know
what it says? Because I definitely have done that in my life as a student. It’s
an example of something that takes a lot of time makes you feel like you’re busy
but you’re actually not really learning anything most likely so there’s kind of
limited usefulness in that we would suggest. Changing paragraphs into
diagrams that’s a good one, that’s definitely transforming the material,
applying your understanding of it. Testing your understanding with memory
devices and flashcards, that’s another good one. Listening to the lecture
recordings to understand every word the question there is do you need to
understand every word of a lecture to understand the content and I can see
someone shaking their head very strongly which is great
definitely when you’re sitting in a lecture if there’s something you feel
like you’ve missed, take a note of the time that that happened and then go back
to the lecture recording and find the thing that you’d want to listen to it
again. Don’t listen to the whole hour worth of a lecture again or two hours
worth of a lecture just to pick up on that one point. So lecture capture is a
good resource for you but I would recommend going
to your lectures as much as you can rather than relying on it and the last
one practice solving problems with your knowledge that’s a great way to really
learn the material as well and there’s a resource on the library that
may help you with that depending on what subjects you’re doing. That’s right the
the library website has a page of past exam papers so you know particularly if
you’re doing sort of science or maths or engineering it can be useful to go back
and look at the previous year’s exams to see what kind of questions have been
there been on the exam and to test your knowledge so you know some people may
say ‘oh but if it’s been on an exam once it’s not going to be used again’ but the
content of the exam still may be included so it can be useful to go back
and use some of the previous exam papers while you’re doing your revision and
studying in exam preparation and a good thing to do with past exam papers
is do the exercises similar to the conditions that you’ll be
in in the exam so if you won’t have your books in the exam, don’t use your books.
Give yourself a time limit to do the questions and see how you go. You don’t
have to sit down for three hours and do a whole exam if that’s how long one of
your exams is, you could carve it up and do half an hour one day and half an hour
the next day but try and practice in those kind of conditions that you’ll
face in the exam. So when we looked at the semester plan we saw a few things
overlapping so we’re just going to have a quick conversation about how you might
want to prioritize assignments. So these are four assignments that a student has
do you can see they’re the order that they’re due in. So the first one’s due on
the 30th of March it’s 500 words. Which one of these assignments would you
prioritize first? 1, 2, 3 or 4? so to be honest I think there’s probably
different answers on this depending on more than what’s just in this table so
in this table you can see when it’s due, how many words and what weighting it has
in the subject. Obviously these are not all in the same subjects because the
percentages don’t add to 100 these are different subjects assignments in
different subjects so somebody said prioritize assignment one get it out of
the way so you can focus on the next one because the first one’s only 500 words
which you may want to do if you look at that assignment and you think it’s a
really easy task but you may look at that assignment and think ‘I think I know
how to do it but I’m not quite sure’ and then you might start doing it and then
it may take longer than you think and then all of a sudden you’ve handed it in
on the 30th of March and in seven days you’ve got a four thousand word
assignment to do that you haven’t started so really the point is you’ve
got to reevaluate as you go I think Just based on this small amount of
information, we would say that you know you definitely have to get that second
assignment started in some way, you can’t wait until the 31st of March and then
start it because a week is not long enough to research and write 4,000 words so we’ve put sort of a revised priority
list in there and once again if you do
prioritize assignment 2 and you then find out you don’t have enough time to
hand in assignment 1 keep in mind that the fact that you had another assignment
due is not an excuse for handing an assignment 1 late. So you’ve got to be
able to manage all these competing priorities. How long do you think it
would take you to write some of these how long do you think it would take you
to write 5,000 words? does anybody have any idea how long they
would write how long it would take them to write 5,000 words and to research? how
long would that whole assignment take? I think you know I think again the point
is there’s no clear answer to that definitely in your first few semesters
you’re going to want to start those things as early as you can because maybe
you don’t quite know at this stage reliably how long it takes you to write
something like that. So let’s move into taking one of those assignments for
example and breaking it down this is another thing that might inform your
semester planning might give you an idea how long something will take. So the
first thing you do determine the task type that you’re doing so that that
could be like an essay or a report or a piece of reflective writing. Analyzing
the task really looking at the task brief and deciding what it’s asking you
to do. Planning out your ideas your initial ideas so you might start
dividing things into sections at this point and you might allocate your word
counts to those sections then you definitely want to start your research
and start finding information and reading it and putting bullet points
about your ideas into your plan so I’m going to pass back to talk a little bit
more about where you can find things on the library website again. So in terms of
helping you to undertake the research element of an assignment, the library
team has basically done a lot of the hard work for you we’ve created what we
call library research guides which are available under the resources tab ‘LibGuides’ and so what we’ve done is we’ve we’ve looked at different subjects, different you know areas of study you may be sort
of focusing on in your degree and we created these guides that include the
key resources that should be used for that subject so let’s say we’re doing an
arts degree and we’ve decided to do an Ancient World Studies class. This
LibGuide includes you know some some basic research tips such as
search tips but we also include some tips about finding ancient sources which
may be journal databases you should be using to find relevant content to
support the primary materials so these LibGuides are great. As I mentioned
before the Discovery service includes about 80% of our resources
these LibGuides try and capture that extra 20% that’s very specialized, that
may be specialized resources for a specialized subject. So rather than you
spending hours thinking ‘where do I start research for this subject’ come and have
a look and see if there’s a LibGuide based around that subject because you
know we’ve spent those hours putting this together for you to use
so good resource to use So as you read those things, you’re putting your ideas
into your plan, then you’re going to come to writing your draft and there’s no
problem when you’re writing your draft to start with the body and write the
introduction and conclusion later if you’re finding it difficult to get
started. One of the things you can do is start writing about ideas for the body
paragraphs in whatever text you’re writing. Then you always want to leave a
little bit of time at the end to finalize your draft so proofreading,
editing. It’s a really good strategy to print what you’re writing and read it in
hardcopy. Sometimes when you do that mistakes really stand out much more than
just looking at it on the screen If you don’t have a printer at home you can
always just PDF your Word document sometimes even that helps
I have heard students suggest that if you change the font sometimes that makes
mistakes stand out to you as well. It’s just because you’re
looking at it and with the slightly different appearance to what you’ve been
staring at it for hours beforehand in Academic Skills also has a series of
YouTube videos on editing strategies so you might get to the end of your
assignment and think I finished writing it I’ve met the word count I think I’ve
answered the question and I just don’t want to look at this anymore I’m gonna
submit it and that’s the end of it if you put a little bit of time into
editing your document afterwards it really will make a difference to your
marks So we’ve got videos that play automatically on our page and just below
those we’ve got a series of playlists You’ll see the first one there is for
editing there’s just four videos in there they’re between one and four
minutes long so they’re not too involved Also down the bottom there you’ll see
we’ve got one for reading strategies as well which we’re going to talk about
next in terms of researching and reading
effectively So are you going to be able to read everything? so great thanks thank
you you’re not gonna be able to read everything from beginning to end so you
could follow this little flow chart to help you decide whether you want to read
something in detail or not so the first thing you ask yourself is ‘is the reading
for a tutorial, a seminar, an assignment or exam preparation?’ and if it is first
thing you should do is skim or scan read it Those reading strategy videos that I
just mentioned they have techniques for skimming and scanning
if you’re not sure what that means so that’s what you can use. So skim/scan read it, get a quick idea of what’s in the text and then ask yourself if
it’s relevant or useful and if it is apply some more reading strategies which
includes critical reading questions and I’ll show you where you can find a list
of those on our website in a minute after we get through this flow chart. So
if it is relevant and useful and you apply your reading strategies, read it to
the end and make notes as you read Making notes is important so that you
don’t have to come back and read it again in a couple weeks’ time when you’ve
forgotten everything that’s in it and you need it for an assignment. So make
sure you’re making notes as you’re reading. If the reading is not for
coursework or for your research for an assignment or exams the thing you should
ask yourself is is it interesting and if it is interesting only read it if you
have time and if it’s not interesting or if it’s not relevant or useful to your
assignment don’t read it, put it down
Always evaluate as you read whether or not it’s worth spending the time reading
something. So just briefly on the Academic Skills page under ‘All Resources’ there is a section on research and yeah-
research and referencing and in there there’s a flyer called
Reading Critically and there’s another one called Reading Effectively this one
has a really nice set of questions in it that helps you think about the ideas in
a text so that’s one a that’s what I always recommend to many students that I
see. So we also have other ways to find this research so the library
homepage again has some some tools you can use, search tools to help find these
articles to begin with so if you have a look under the search tools tab we’ve
got a find it at unimelb book la- bookmarklet which you can drag and drop
into your browser which means even if you’re outside of the University campus
and you find you know searching in the catalogue or searching in Google Scholar
you can still access subscription content through these bookmarklets
and you can also sync your Google Scholar settings with the University of
Melbourne library catalogue so that results that include subscription
content will come up and you’ll be able to click through using it the finder at
uni mail links and the other thing I’ll show you as well while we’re here on the
library page is some reference management material which can help you
sort of just keep track of the relevant articles as you’re reading them so on
the reference management page we’ve got some tools you can use. There’s a bit
of a summary of some reference management tools like Zotero, EndNote, etc
but we’ve also got a ‘Getting started with reference management’ so
this can just help you keep track of you know if you’ve read these articles and
they are relevant, then here’s how you can you know sort of save time in the
writing stage of your assignments and with the reference management tools so
have a look there okay so we’re aware we’ve jumped forward and
backwards a little bit between the library- the various resources that are
available to you through the library so this is a bit of a summary of those
things so that you can have it all in one place. The thing I would stress in
terms of using Google Scholar is that if you’re not- if you don’t connect your
University of Melbourne account to Google Scholar it will let you see some
articles but it will ask you to pay for them so I just want to stress like if
you find a good text that you want to use an
assignment and something is asking you to pay for it go back and connect things
to your University of Melbourne account go back to the library website make sure
you’re logged in through the University of Melbourne just don’t pay for things
because the library’s already paid for so much for you already
you’re not expected to pay for research that you use in your assignments okay so
we’ve covered Google Scholar Discovery we’ve talked about the library research
guides and if a lecturer recommends a particular database to you you can go
straight to that as well. So we’ve talked about four different strategies so far:
we’ve talked about planning out your time, we’ve talked about setting clear
goals for your time, we’ve talked about studying effectively and
efficiently using active planning strategy- active learning strategies
rather, we’ve talked about researching and reading effectively and the last
strategy that we’d like to share with you is all about actually knowing how to
motivate yourself so I’d just like you to take a couple of minutes and with the
people around you discuss these three quick questions so the first one is what
motivates you second one is how were you measure your progress and the third one
how will you stay healthy so once again if you are not sitting next to somebody
if you’re sitting on your own move up and down to introduce yourself and talk
to somebody. If you’re sitting next to somebody you already know really well
same thing move around we’ve only got one or two pieces of information to show
you after this so I can give you a couple of minutes to have this
conversation with someone around you So your overall motivation might be just
graduating at the end like this this happy pair of students but you will need
motivation and all the steps along the way. Graduation might feel quite far off at the moment so make sure you build in some
little motivation and reward for yourself during each semester and we’d
like to just quickly tell you how you can contact us so Academic Skills has
online resources some of which I showed you today we have workshops and courses
coming up in March we have ‘English for Academic Purposes’ workshops that help
students develop their English language skills, have a look at our website
they’ll be promoted there. We do run individual consultations so students
come in- can come they can book a 25-minute appointment with an Academic
Skills Advisor to discuss any of the skill areas that we advise on and you
can find us just by googling us we’re on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and for the
library contact so on the library homepage
we’ve got library chat so librarians like Kirsty and I and our colleagues we
sort of man this chat during all our opening hours of the library so if
you’ve got a quick question and you know you’re off campus you can contact us via
the chat. You can also just come in and visit us, we’ve got a number of branches
throughout the campus so depending on what faculty you’re studying in you may
have a particular library that will hold most of your resources and have liaison
librarians specific to that faculty so come in and see us ask questions and the
opening hours are also on the library homepage as well. Alright thanks. So I
need to impose on you to do one more thing, we really like to hear from
students about what they thought of these sessions to ensure that we keep
giving students what they need when they’re starting at University so we
would ask you very kindly if you could fill out the evaluation using the
address that’s up there now you can do it right now if you want to that would
be best while it’s fresh on your mind as I said these sessions being videoed
so the video will be available if there’s anything you missed and you want
to watch it again or more likely you know if you tell a friend, you want to
share something with a friend from this session and if you would like a copy of
the slides you can email me and I can send those to you. So please give
feedback, your feedback is very appreciated
