Wahay!

The wonderful people at the Open University - may their camels be fecund - have changed the way they fund courses for OU tutors who wish to study with them. Until this year there was an upper cap on the course fee waiver but it's been lifted as long as the course is clearly one appropriate to the tutor (they might think it strange if I wanted to take a course on basket weaving for example). Thus my studying has been restricted to courses within the fee waiver limit. This wasn't a problem, I've really enjoyed the last two courses I've done and the next on the list looked funky too but now that the cap is gone I've had a look at the rest of the courses and found "H806: Learning in the Connected Economy". Now, I ask you, was there every a scrummier looking course to finish this bit with?

6 careful considerations:

You signed on the dotted line yet, Nigel? I'm still pondering whether life has room for an H806....

The dotted line arrived today - just got to print off the bit of paper that the office signs and I'm in (and I'll cancel EZX836). I'll be doing 60 points next year and H806 looks so tasty I'm going to go for it. You know my philosophy - if I don't have enogh time I'm spending too long asleep!

Very scrummy indeed Nigel. Even made me salivate. You are perfect for it and its perfect for you.

Nogbad said...

Thanks Kat and Morning - if you'd both write to Exams and Assessment and tell them this they may let me drop an assignment :-)

You get me out of one of my assignments and I'll try and get you out of one of yours. :-))
