ED209 – At last, week 20 …

As I said in my last post, I finally got around to going back to week 20 while I was away on holiday. Having transcribed my notes I’ve now completed my set for the first three books of ED209. My intention is to tweak these again come revision time, just to make sure the material really has sunk in.

In some ways, I wish I’d looked a little more closely at this chapter earlier on (and its associated TMA question) as I think the opinions that were expressed on the OU forums that this option might have been the easier to put an essay together around were probably right. It was the yukky diagrams of the brain in this chapter  (I know they aren’t really yukky – but I’m really squeamish about anything remotely biological) that put me off.

That now leaves me to concentrate on mopping up the media kit tasks from the last couple of weeks and then it’s onto TMA06. No choices on this one – it’s a report again – so I’m looking forward to it as I seem to do better on this type of assignment than on essays.

    Hi Tim,
    Hope you’re well, I hope you don’t mind me getting in touch with you, I share tutorials with you but missed the last one. Have you had your TMA5 back yet? This one seems to be taking an age and i can’t get hold of our tutor. Also, did our tutor give any pointers for TMA06 in the last tutorial?
    Hope you are well underway with the latest assignment.

  2. » Last chance to register on the OU D15 diploma in psychology Just One More Ten Pence Piece …

    […] Last chance to register on the OU D15 diploma in psychology March 8, 2010 — timholyoake One of the reasons I decided to start studying psychology with the OU in 2007 was the availability of the D15 diploma. For people who already had a degree in another subject, the availability of D15 meant that I could take just the courses needed for BPS graduate recognition – saving both time and money – and at the same time avoiding the biological psychology 30 point course that forms part of the degree but not the diploma. Essential for me, as I hate looking at ‘yukky diagrams of the brain‘. […]
