A student. Yes it is back to my post graduate course for the final ‘learning burst’ of this academic year and tomorrow I will receive the mark for the latest submitted assignment. I have to admit that choosing the subject of leadership to study was an inspired one, because much of the coursework not to mention the topics I have chosen for my assignments have become part of my everyday work. The other useful thing, is the MA Organisational Development course that is being taught alongside, because my role has broadened out this year to be much more about organisational development than strictly being just about how individuals in the workforce are developed.
So today is an annual leave day, and one where there is no teen son hibernating upstairs, what is the appeal of his bedroom that makes him love it so much? He has returned to school, for what is perhaps the most important week of his school career yet. On Thursday he will be taking the first part of his 2 part science GCSE with the other half next year. He says he has been revising, I just hope that he has, after all he has had ample time to do it!
One of the downsides of my course, thought it makes for an interesting time, is that we have to read each others assignments and then feed back to each other about them. This means that today I have three 7000 word essays and two 5000 essays to read but with the weather being so good right now, I wonder if a trip to the local park wouldn’t help make the long read easier? More about the student life as the week goes on.
