A week tomorrow, I’m visiting a class of third year Trad Music students to talk about their research projects, and to see if the library has any resources that might prove useful to them.
I have a conviction that “parachute lecturers” – people like me, asked to give one-off teaching sessions – need to work harder to create context for their lessons. Therefore, I’ve just sent a MailChimp message to everyone, to give advance warning of what I’ll be talking about. This way, I hope the students will be prepared to share their initial thoughts about these projects, and might come armed with questions about any resources they’ve already tried.
This is not exactly part of my PGCert project, but I’m logging it in case I need it as “evidence” later on!
I’m coming along to talk to you about your research projects – so I can see if the library can help you with any useful materials, any e-resources you might not have thought of, and maybe offer a few tips about keeping track of your research “journey” along the way.
I just thought I’d send this email to ask you each to be prepared to tell me briefly what the project is about. If there’s anything you’d like to give me advance warning about, just drop me an email: ~~~~~~~~~~~~
And if there are any online resources you’ve tried but had difficulty with, let me know, and we can have a look at them together. (Here’s the library’s webpage: https://www.rcs.ac.uk/about_us/libraryandit/)
