Are you ready for your Exam? Think you could do with little extra support? Student Hub Live can help!

Exam2: In this session we will be focusing on the actual exam day, including practicalities about time and venue. We’ll look at the experience of sitting an exam and how to manage your time within the exam as well as get the most from what you have in your head and getting it on paper and hopefully gaining you marks. You should be able to go away from this session knowing what to expect from an OU exam and having a clear idea of how to sit an exam.

These sessions are open to all students, studying at all levels. The workshops will be hosted in Adobe Connect Online Room and take place 8-9pm Wednesday 23rd May (rooms open at 7.45pm). If you are unable to join us, you can catch up at any time.

What is Brexit, where does it come from, and what could it mean in everyday life? On Friday 25 May (9:30am – 12pm) a team of OU academics will be in the Student Hub Live studio to discuss what has happened since the vote, how Brexit is already changing us, and what to expect in the future.

Researchers from across the Arts and Social Sciences will be considering how work in their areas can help explain how we got to this point and what to expect next. Topics covered will include: the story so far; trust in experts and the growth of conspiracy theories; geographical and psychological splits in the referendum vote; Brexit’s practical effects on everyday life and work; and how to plan for what happens next? Throughout the event, we will be showing a series of short videos looking at how Brexit is experienced differently across Great Britain and Ireland. As always, we’ll be responding live to your questions from the chatroom, so join us to look at how Brexit is changing the UK, the wider world, and to better understand how your academic studies relate to the challenges that lie ahead.

The event is online, interactive and open to everyone. The chat room will be open from 9am and during the live event you can send your tweets to @StudentHubLive (#StudentHubLive18), email us at studenthub@open.ac.uk, complete the online voting tools, send us your comments, and take part in the online discussions.

We looked at the expected structure as well as practicalities and how to recognise key words and relevant process words and other instructions. You should be able to go away from this session with a good idea about how to produce a well signposted EMA that will show your understanding of your module and study.

Event Image: ‘Research, teaching and you’ from FASS

On Thursday 3 May the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) hosted a live and interactive event to highlight, explore and discuss some of the exciting research that takes place in FASS. Discussions included a variety of topics as well as how this research informs OU teaching and your learning.

We were joined by leading researchers from Art History, Criminology, Economics, Geography, History, Music, Politics, Psychology, and Religious Studies, where we discussed a range of topics including ‘Digital Mothering’ and relationships; how History, Religious Studies, Social Policy and Criminology investigate and reconstruct patterns and flows of ‘power’ and ‘belief’; how different people interact with objects, music, literature, and the Classical world through the Digital Humanities; and understanding how space, place and gender work to frame the relationships and behaviour between people, organisations and states.
