Day one of week one of 4th year of university. The day starts at 10am with a lecture from Simone O’Callahan of the division of games and art. Simone is the module leader for Research Methods and Dissertation so she will be who reads and marks the dissertation. During this first lecture Simone told us all the important documents necessary for the completion of honours year. This includes the learning contract template, honours diary template and ethical approval forms, I will go into more detail of each of these in individual blog posts. Each lecture from Simone in the following weeks will be one which helps us out on the creation of an honours project and enhances our knowledge and understanding of creating a good dissertation for the end of year.
