We all need a confidence boost to feel study ready. It doesn’t matter whether your studies have been paused for years, months, or just over the summer, we want to help you feel ready to restart. In this broadcast we’ll hear from real students and discuss how tough they sometimes found it – and why they’re glad they carried on. We’ll look at the practicalities of coming back to study and have careers experts on hand to help you focus on the end goal. Don’t feel stuck – join us to take the first step towards rediscovering your study ambition.

This exciting event brings together students and academics from the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies to explore the different forms of resilience we’ve developed alone, together, during a difficult year, looking ahead to a hopefully brighter future.  Throughout the sessions in the day, you’ll be encouraged to reflect on the highs and lows of the year and imagine what a better future could hold for study, work and life. You’ll hear and share stories of resilience and hope and join in discussions about the importance of standing up against all forms of discrimination and racism, especially during times of crisis.  As this is the time of the year for moving up and moving on, you’ll be invited to shake off the lows from this year in the dancing session for the day. In the last part of this event, you’ll hear about some of the work that has been going on during this year in the Children’s Research Centre, the School of Languages & Applied Linguistics and the School of Education, Childhood, Youth and Sport and join us in celebrating a year of making it through and making things happen, building on our resilience.

The pandemic and the enforced lockdowns have presented business with a myriad of challenges which have both legal and ethical implications. This session is designed for both Business and Law students of all levels to explore these wide-reaching ramifications with participating students invited to reflect on their own experience of adapting to a changed working environment. Engaging with legal and business experts to examine the issues and demands of how we work in the ‘new normal’ will scope the current landscape including addressing the ethics and legality of vaccines for work. The session will close with a look forward to the post-pandemic world. How do the business and law sectors navigate the challenges ahead?

Have you considered how researchers make sense of the social world and try to improve societies?  Or perhaps you’ve been thinking about what it means to be a digital society?  Do you want to know how economists can contribute to understanding global challenges and contribute to the development of innovative and sustainable solutions?  Do you want to understand how research feeds into the modules that you’re studying, or have you perhaps wondered what career opportunities there are in criminology?  For answers to these questions and more, join us for the Exploring the Social and the Global:  New Curriculum in SSGS event on 15 June 2021.

Whether you are an OU student or a member of staff, we care about the caring work you are doing. This online event will fill you in on the support that is available from the OU and you will hear from people who have balanced caring responsibilities with their OU work. We know that it is important for carers to talk to others who understand some of the challenges and so there will be an opportunity to share experiences in small groups. We will also suggest mindfulness and meditation strategies that you can enjoy during the event and take away. Many people care for others, and often do so in an unofficial capacity, so if you are caring for anyone else this is the event for you.

Every student who decides to start an Access module, who submits an assignment, gets over an obstacle or makes it to the end of the module, deserves recognition. This session will celebrate Access students’ achievements and discuss some ways to make sticking with study, even in challenging times, just that little bit easier. There will be awards for ‘best pet study buddy’ and ‘best use of a highlighter’, amongst others. Come along for some fun and to receive recognition that what you are doing is worth celebrating. You might even pick up some new study tips!

Writing complete and effective essays requires careful planning. This workshop, aimed at Access and Level 1 students, introduces the planning and writing process. We will discuss the structure and key components of an essay, and you’ll learn how to include these elements in your plan. Examples of plans will be showcased, and we’ll show you how to scope and order your material. You’ll also learn how to plan your paragraphs so that each one addresses a key element of your essay and builds towards a coherent argument.

This essay planning workshop focuses on formulating the best argument to address a set question. Aimed at students on Level 2 or 3 modules, it will focus on how to structure your argument and set out your points coherently. We will discuss the elevation of introductions, framing arguments and exploring effective conclusions that reveal how all the points you have made address the question. The workshop will also look at how to tackle more complex essays, such as comparisons and critical evaluations.

 

Registration to events will usually open 3 weeks in advance of the event date.
