What’s on in Week 8
There is no weekly video this week because Kate had a really crazy Monday!
Checkpoint 1 for Assignment 1
Checkpoint 1 for Assignment 1 is this Sunday night, 13 September. You must have completed
- Quizzes for Weeks 4, 6 and 8
- Activity posts for Weeks 3, 5 and 7 (or two of these plus use of your get out of jail free card)
If you used your get out of jail free card for one of the first three activities, we will be marking two posts out of 20 instead of three posts out of 30. We’ll then mark four posts out of 40 at the next check point.
|When||Monday 7 September, 5.45pm* til 7.45pm|
|Where||On campus: S305 Gardens Point and online in Adobe Connect|
|What||In class we will talk about managing programs and writing proposals.|
|Can’t make it to class?||A recording will be available after class.|
* The class in the room immediately before us always runs til 5.30pm so I’m pushing our start time back to 5.45pm for the remainder of the semester so I have time to set up.
