Fig. 1. Won some team shield - age 12 years and 9 months
Over the last 34 months I have watched as various folk have posted news of a TMA success - the most important lesson and life lesson I have learnt through the OU (this time round) is to stick with it come what may.
This result doesn't win me clients, but as I stop for the day and set out into the night to meet folk who might be part of a team or might even be clients I can so with growing confidence.
I look at it and want to call my Mum.
We're discussing criticism and feedback in a forum on Linkedin - E-Learning Global Network.
I am inclined simply to shower someone with praise - they can figure out where it isn't up to scratch but the lift will do them wonders.
Stick with it. It takes time.
Somewhere I've posted how I felt going into this. 'In the flow'
Find the support to get through the stumbles and bad decissions. This either comes from internal strength or external support - this could be the institution, might be your family.
An EMA and the MA is done.
New commentTa. Life can be a bitch - this is OK.
That's fantastic Jonathan .
Your mum is beaming at you!
New commentThanks Susan. I can't believe it. Especially as for the very first time I felt no panic, I just assembled what was required, took the trouble to bring in some current research and added some of my own perspective. Some of the blog posts from my first year doing this are very embarrassing and niave.
