    Hi all

    I hope you had an enjoyable residential.

    Once you have settled back, can I invite you all to say a brief hello via the forum?

    Hello Everyone

    I’m Charlotte – I work at Cardiff Uni where I help organise the skills training programme for PhD students. I look after the careers training and research methods training.

    I’ve just sent off my module registration form for the Research Project module. I hope to do a project on Graduate Employers and Labour Markets – in relation to PGR students.

    I’ll be interested to hear what others are planning to do.

    best wishes

    Charlotte

    Hi all, I’m Estanis, a Careers Consultant from City University London. That fantastic residential course seems ages ago now! I really enjoyed those few days. I’m now working on my assignments for this module. I have chosen a workshop on professional networking for unemployed recent graduates, and the second one will be an activity for a totally different audience, probably first year Speech and Language Therapy students. Apart from the small matter of having to film (and watch!) myself, I’m very much enjoying this module! Good luck with your group work assignments everyone. Estanis

    Hello again!

    I’m Anne, Careers Consultant at Royal Hollloway UoL, part of The Careers Group. Completely agree Estanis – where has the time gone since the residential?!

    I’ve been sharing a lot of my learning from the residential with my colleagues at RHUL, particularly focusing on our use of learning outcomes across the service, and it’s encouraging to see that this is starting to have an impact. I’ve also tried some different approaches in my own work, relying much less on powerpoint slides and trying out a bit of theory!

    I’ve been trying to collect as many recordings as I can, but the combination of camera positioning, unpredictable student attendance and various other things is proving quite challenging… think I’ve finally got one I can use today!

    Good luck everyone!

    Hi everyone

    I’m Catherine, Careers Adviser at Cambridge and I have finally found the time to register and join you all in planning the group work. Dreading the actual videoing bit but this term I’ve had a lot of fun getting away from powerpoints and introducing a lot more interactivity into my sessions after the residential back in the summer.

    I thought I’d develop the JRF workshop for PhD’s applying for research funding that I had a go at in Warwick. And the second one might be along the “how to work out what to do when you haven’t a clue” lines for final year Arts and Humanities students.

    Good luck out there. Most of you might be nearing handing in stage if you were registered back in June. Hope its all going well.

    Hi All, Sue Holton, Careers Coach at Oxford Brookes here. The residential seems so long ago bathed in glorious sunshine as it was. As already commented I also enjoyed the variety of activities and I did gain a completely different view of learning outcomes. I will admit previously they were something of boring, box ticking exercise. I hope my work since then demonstrates a more thoughtful and purposeful approach. The video bit has been a shock – who is that – me – really?

    Hi Sally here from Loughborough I’ve finally got round to registering and starting this module in earnest. Really enjoyed the course in July and learnt a lot from it. Doing my first recording this Friday – last day of term so how many will turn up!? Bye for now Sally

    Hello Everyone,

    Amy Haworth from Birmingham here. Many of you will have handed in the work for this module now, but I will be doing over the next couple of months and have still got the videoing to do eeek! Like many others who have commented on here, I have found the learning from the residential really useful in my workshops during the Autumn term, and I am now hoping that going back over the theory at this stage will further add to my Spring workshops.

    Best wishes for 2014 Amy
