COUPS E219 Springboard Day
So often at the revision weekends, students say “If only we had this overview of the course earlier in the year”. That’s why OUPS (the Open University Psychological Society) created overview days. Overview days provide a framework for the whole course and help students to understand what to focus on in TMAs and the EMA. Feedback from students has been that these days are inspirational and packed with content, making them excellent value in terms of time and money. But students have then said, ‘It would have been even better to have had this right at the start of the module?’ Hence Springboard Days!
Programme and structure of the day:
The day comprises four sessions. Subject areas are:
- Introduction to E219 and Cognitive Development
- Identity and Emotional Development
- Attachment; and study skills
- Communication; and writing good essays
Please note that we will not discuss answers to the actual TMAs or exam questions
Registration will take place from 9.30am, with lectures starting at 10.am. The day should finish around 4pm.
