It’s taking a lot of motivation to use the time properly but I’ve made a good start…I think!
We were in uni for two days this week, the first was to go over everything for our dissertation and clarify things we need to do for it – which was a good refresher and also chucked so pretty good tips our way too. I think the idea of a dissertation is quite intimidating and this session did make it feel a little better (still more than a little terrified though!)
Our second uni day we had local midwives who are involved in Better Births come and talk to us about where midwifery is moving and the kind of changes the governing bodies are looking at making to midwifery care – always useful to know and could well lead to good questions to ask at interviews too.
It’s all a bit daunting at the moment, with huge amounts of written work needing doing, but I’m sure it’ll be manageable – I just need to compartmentalise…I hope!!!
Self managed learning wise, this week was very much about finalising the research papers I want too use as main studies for my dissertation, and going through them with coloured pens to identify themes and such. It’s all quite new but I’m sure I’ll get there!
