For those who are just finishing a course, we hope you’re looking forward to a well-deserved break at the end of a busy semester (though we know there is still work going on with assignments and dissertations).

The handbooks for next semester’s courses are now available from the link to the left of this page.  There will be an updated Programme Handbook for January too; I am just waiting for the final pieces of information for this.

The Edinburgh University Students Association (EUSA) organise this scheme and nominations need to be in by 18 February. For further information, see:

Need help or tricks for multimodality or creativity?

December 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hi all,

as some of us struggle producing multimodal artefacts and have difficulties approaching creativity, I have produced this little(!) video with five absolutely simple tipps on how you can make it easy on yourself. I hope you’ll find it helpful. If so, please share. Comments are always very welcome! And thanks loads to Noreen Dunnett for inspiring me to do it!

Best,

Dirk
