Assignment Guidelines


Well I may be only part-time but I find myself having to work on Saturday to get this dumped-on-me-out-of-nowhere stuff out of the way.

Here's what I did this morning, in response to yesterday's email.

As you can see, the text isn't all that long. I merely had to take a template and change the content of the paragraphs in each block so they were individualised for my assignment. I did the same for CE317. It took about 20 minutes.

The remaining hour was spent finding the powerpoints for the lectures into which I had to insert this slide, then inserting it. It took so long because I had to figure out the dates upon which the lectures would be delivered, my not having done so previously because the dates kept being changed (and could indeed still be changed, even though teaching starts two days from now). I also had to locate and strip out the place-holder slides from last year that I had retained because I just knew we'd have something like this dropped on our plates with a generous deadline of three days to comply (one day if you don't count the weekend). Oh, I also had to despatch an email to say what I'd done.

I'm sure the students will appreciate all this effort and will give Essex University high marks in the National Student Survey in March.
