Due to the Easter weekend and family commitments, I’m writing my usual Friday post on Saturday. I will copy across the plan from Monday’s post and annotate it to reflect my progress towards these goals.
- Ideally I would like to have my assignment for ETL503 completed today to submit for review by the ALLAN team. My husband proofread it for me last night and I have a few more changes I would like to make before submitting. Completed and submitted after review.
- I need to work on my literature review for ETL401 and ideally have that ready for submission to the ALLAN team by the end of tomorrow. Completed and submitted after review.
- I have Module 4 to begin for ETL401 and Module 3 to begin for ETL503, ideally I would like to have those modules both half completed by the end of the week. Both modules are roughly half completed.
- Both assignments revised after ALLAN team feedback (this may happen on Saturday). Done and submitted,
- One GLAM podcast episode listened to. I listened to the latest Turbitt n Duck episode with Sally Pewhairangi.
- A review post on Saturday (instead of Friday). This is it!
I worked really hard on Monday, getting my assignments completed and ready for review, so I took Tuesday off and went for a 9km bushwalk instead. I then spent Wednesday and Thursday making minor changes to my assignments in response to the feedback, working on the modules, and engaging in parenting activities.
Also, in the interests of continuing professional learning and pursuing my own digital literacy, I created an infographic that summarises my literature review, that will be published on this blog in the coming weeks. I was initially daunted by the process but found it pretty easy in the end, and I’m happy with the result.
Next week is also a short week due to Easter Monday, however I am hoping to get at least a little uni work done that day. Then we are technically on to mid-semester break, although only one of my subjects allows for the break! I am hoping to be well ahead on coursework before the school holidays arrive as I simply won’t have the time to focus on uni work to the same degree while I have a house full of children and the play dates and outings and the like that come with holidays. Now that my first two assignments are in, so the pressure is off a little, I also want to focus on making sure I’m getting regular exercise, which is falling by the wayside in the pressure of uni and family life.
