Some administrative points for BAPP (Arts) this semester : Keep in contact and update your advisers and Avni Shah the WBL administrator with your correct contact details. Students cards should be processed for this module so that you will have them when you need them. We need to choose one or several new student representatives for BAPP (Arts) this year. We are writing our own BAPP (Arts) feedback forms at the end of the Modules you take. The form will most likely be on Survey Monkey. We value feedback and have used your feedback in our planning of the new curriculum for BAPP (Arts).
Assessment is clearly outlined in the Programme Handbook & Module Handbooks. Assessment this term is due to be submitted 9th January 2012. Our assessment is linked university guidelines: http://www.mdx.ac.uk/aboutus/Strategy/regulations/gradecriteriaguide.aspx
The Readers are there to support your learning and to challenge you. They are not there as just ‘content’ to learn… but are there to get you thinking about your professional practice. This is a Level 6 Honours level programme so the expectations are that your work will be of high standard and your learning will be self-managed. Dedicated support is available from your adviser, the BAPP (Arts) team, and the university staff.

SUCCESS What do you want to achieve? Take a few moments to think about how you define success and the things you need to do to achieve it. Jot these ideas down. You may want to think about them later in the day or next week… you might want to put them into your personal diary or on your public blog to share with others. (Nasa, 2005)
