Well, good morning everyone. My first task this morning, and it's a very happy one for me to perform, is to welcome all of you to this first tutorial for the University of Brancaster course A753 on Art in Italy. I'll be passing around a paper on which I'd like you to write your names, so that I know exactly who's been present, and, as is the case for all tutorials, this also means that if anyone who should be here is not, then I'll be able to put any of the handouts given out during the tutorial in the post, so that you'll get the essential information in some form or other, if not necessarily from the horse's mouth. Now there are two basic areas that I intend to deal with today. Past experience has shown that students starting the course have two areas of anxiety: the first is with how their work is going to be assessed, and the second is how best to study for the course.

As you will know if you've read the information sent to course participants before the start of the course, you will be required to supply four pieces of written work for assessment purposes. Each of these Tutor Marked Assignments or TMA's as we call them must be submitted by the date laid down in your course details, and it's absolutely necessary to meet this requirement. No late assignments will be marked, whatever the reason, whatever the reason for their being late, and your grade for the course will be affected.

Now I have some more important remarks to make about the actual mechanics of TMA writing. Although, as I have said, it is essential that you submit your assignment by the required date, I don't want you to feel too worried when you sit down to write the first one. Regard it as a chance to learn from the mistakes you're bound to make.

Word length is always laid down, and for the first TMA it is 2,000 words. You can regard this as a guide, and anything within 500 words either way will be acceptable. Remember that it is important to consider the question carefully and address yourself to the relevant issues. Length isn't an automatic indicator of quality. Legibility is

important, it always helps if what you've written is easy to read. For this reason, we always prefer assignments to be typed if at all possible. If this is not possible, then please write as clearly as you can, allowing good margins so that comments can be written in. And it will help if you write on one side of the paper only. You'll also be receiving a separately written report on what you've submitted, with a grade.

At the end of your assignment, be sure to include all your sources of information - a bibliography including information about the publisher and date should appear at the end of the assignment, and don't forget to acknowledge quotations. Now before I move on to talk about how best to study for the course, would anyone like to ask any questions?

 

Answers:

1 Art in Italy: ... course A753 on Art in Italy.

2 handout. if anyone who should be here is not, then I'll be able to put... the handouts.

3 mail / post: in the post.

4 TMAs (iutor-marked assignments) / work assessment: the first is how their work is going to be assessed ... TMAs as we call them.

5 four: to supply four pieces of written work.

6 late: essential you submit your assignment by the required date.

7 a guide: Word length ... You can regard this as a guide.

8 typed: we always prefer assignments to be typed.

9 (written / separate) report: You'll also be receiving a separately written report.

10 a bibliography / a list of books used: include all your sources of information.
