I was looking through the BLOG and realised that all of this year, the dissemination group haven’t given an account or reflection of what we have done this year… So here goes.
We started of the year by re-designing the SAN welcome pack. We wanted to make it easy to read, easy to understand all the terms (IBL, SAN, CILASS, SA… look how we now take them all for granted) and attractive with photos, colour and something better than the previous one. As a team, Laura, Rosie, Sarah and myself wrote up the new bits for the welcome pack and then Sarah took it home and make it look fantastic! Many of you will have seen the finished outcome by now (especially ou new ambassadors), and your opinions on how (if at all) it could be improved will be much welcomed.
Â We then got the chance to be part of something new and exciting for CILASS: the ‘crucIBL’ newsletter – which ever so cleverly includes IBL in the title, andÂ the name was thought up by someone from the school of Management who won the competition toÂ pickÂ a new name for our newsletter.
This year, we produced two newsletters, with the help of the CILASS core team and we got a chance to write and reserach our own articles. Sarah wrote an article in both issues about a project that the school of architecture were working on with an exhibition in Barnsley, Rosie wrote up her experience of performing in an original spanish opera which was performed for the first time in England here in Sheffield, Laura worked on a graveyard project with the school of archaeology who looked at gravestones and IÂ gave a diary entry of a Geography field trip! All of these articlesÂ have a reflection of the IBL process that students went through and what they learned from each of their projects but I am not going to tell you howÂ looking at gravestones or singing in a Spanish opera encompassed IBL – oh no – Go and look at our newsletter, which we are very proud to present, and read about what we, and other students learned!
