School's Out for Summer

Last week saw the final teaching day of my first year as a tutor on the MA in Web Design and Content Planning at the University of Greenwich. I can’t believe how quickly the last seven months have flown by.

I was originally invited to help on the course after a chat with Prisca following my talk at Milton Keynes Geek Night last September. Having accepted the invite it has been a brilliant experience with long days, crazy train experiences but above all rewarding days spent listening to students and (hopefully) helping guide them along the process of creating a website as part of their practical thesis project.

I cannot overemphasise how satisfying it has been to offer my time to help others. It has been personally rewarding and reassuring to realise that I know more than I think and that the years I have spent in this industry can be of some use to others just starting out on their path in web design.

Many thanks to David and Prisca for the opportunity to be involved in their brilliant course. I can’t wait to see the fruits of the student’s efforts come September and am already looking forward to helping with next year’s course!


Cole, thanks very much for the help over the past academic year. I have found it really beneficial to hear your take on our projects and learn about various techie things from you. Best of luck for next year!

what a lovely post – so glad to read that you enjoyed your time on the course ~ and that you’ll be staying on despite the craziness of your journey to campus :)

…and same here, I’m looking forward to the final thesis presentations already :-)
