This time last year, the University’s Learning Technologies team piloted an innovative online course aimed at helping new students settle in to life at The University of Nottingham.
New students were encouraged to sign up to ‘Your University Journey, a Nottingham Open Online Course (NOOC) via Moodle. The course gave an insight into the amazing research that goes on at Nottingham and to help them get used to using things like library resources and reading lists. After a successful pilot year, the course ran again this year for the 2015/16 intake.
First year students can still join the course via Moodle and complete Unit 1 ‘Getting ready to be a University of Nottingham student’.
Your University Journey: Year 2
Now in its second year, ‘Your University Journey’ also handles the transition from year one to year two. Year one covers topics such as getting to know your fellow students, strategies for reading and planning for assessments last year, whereas the first unit of year two starts out by examining the differences between first and second year. The course will also introduce students to time management techniques, advice for developing writing skills, and how to become more critical in their learning.
Second year students can enrol on Your University Journey Year 2 now and the first unit starts on Wednesday 7 October 2015. The course is open to all second years and students needn’t have completed the course last year in order to take part.
