Non-Teaching Week

20 January 2010

This is the last week of Block 1, and next week the Design Team will get a chance to enjoy some staff development sessions, and to plan some of the delivery options for Block 2 at NC and HN levels.

Today I sat in on the HND students as they presented interim work for their YCN briefs to Helena. There are some great projects this year - e.g. Castrol, Fedrigoni and Cartoon Network - and some of the work the guys have come up with is really creative and well-thought out.

Once the work is finalised we'll try to post some of it up here.

I should also mention that Year 2 are all going out on placement during February, many of them to great Edinburgh agencies like Hush, Lewis and Redpath, but some are going further afield (and I mean further!) - Bournemouth, Amsterdam, Poland and even Thailand. So good luck to them all!

Just a pity the tutors don't get a funded trip to see each student in their workplace...
