Practical Tips and Resoruces



Hi Janelle
I just wanted to thank you for your guidance through this unit. The additional summaries, tips for assignments and the feedback you gave was brilliant. It was enjoyable to do, but also lovely to have a lecturer that obviously enjoys what she does and cares so much about her students. Just about the feedback, it was very concise and pointed so I knew exactly what you meant.
Thanks again for making the unit so pleasurable to study.


— Ann
