Education Research - getting published, studnets as researchers

Escalate is especially pleased to announce that their latest newsletter is now published - Sharing stories, sharing ideas. http://escalate.ac.uk/6038
This special edition concentrates on the many areas involved in Education Research, from getting your work published through to funding and current issues.
Also, we have set up a blog http://escalatesc.blogspot.com , a new venture for us. It's aim is to allow you to comment on two of the articles featured in the newslettter:
* Mick Healey and Alan Jenkins 'Developing students as researchers'

'Please try and join in the discussion or pass it on to someone you think might be interested. As always however, thank you for supporting ESCalate.

thanx a lot for the advice in your response for Fumi, will take some time to come for the sessions.

You are a very good and practical (Teacher) lecturer. Keep up the good work and good luck in your new and future groups and most of all; whatever research or writing you are doing at the moment.

Good luck - and don't forget there is support available

Good luck in your other modules - and don't forget - the LDU has support to help you produce the best writing possible.

Tuesdays we run Dissertation classes at two and six. These will be followed by a postgraduate Writers' Club running in the six PM slot.

Wednesday mornings we are running an open Writers Club - in four-week cycles; from 10.30-12.00 in room LC-G36.

Just bring an assignment, and preferably a colleague working on the same topic, and there will be practical writing activities to take you through it!

Happy new year - last taught session(s)

Dear All - here's hoping that you all managed to have a rest over the yule break - also wishing you all much joy and fulfilment in 2009!

I am so sorry that I missed the session before christmas; an unavoidable family emergency. However, given the nature of the module, and that you are all driving the teaching and learning, I am assuming that those of you who came in managed to help yourselves and each other.

At the same time, as well as meeting you tonight (6th January), I can offer an additional session next Tuesday evening if you feel that you need it.

Tonight I plan that we make time to review writing progress to date - through individual tutorials and peer review - and that you complete a Module Review form for me such that I can work to improve the module year on year.

I have really enjoyed working with you all - and wish you all good kuck on future courses.
