Over the holiday, I have been doing my doctoral research on the topic of work based learning in Higher Education - doing some of the interview transcripts (long overdue!) with people talking about their interpretation of work-based learning and how they facilitate this form learning. It is really interesting stuff and relates a great deal to what we are doing on the BAPP programme. I get a lot of help from my Supervisor who also does WBL at Birkbeck.
I have also been trying to help final term BAPP students with feedback and info about their final BAPP project reports (the ones that are done in the 3rd module of BAPPS). Because of the schedules that arts professionals have over the holidays, what would be a holiday for many types of work is actually a busy season as you all well know. However, I am looking forward to seeing the final reports in January as people have chosen some good topics that relate to what that do in their workplace.
