Blogtober – starting university and blogging all in one go!

It’s Blogtober, I mean October! Until yesterday I hadn’t heard of Blogtober but I’m so glad I found out about it. As quite a new blogger it’s great to have fellow bloggers helping me out – I feel part of the community now, and I think this is a great way to further engage with the whole blogging experience.

So this month I am going to take the opportunity that Blogtober brings with it to blog every day. In these blogs I will talk about starting my new university course and my experience of blogging. I have also got some new content that will be based on learning and personal development as well. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Tomorrow is my first day on my new course, which is a Masters course in the area of Psychology. Like lots of students, I won’t be going into a university building to learn, it will all be done in my home via my laptop. I think it will be very different and quite weird at first, but I’m sure it will all be OK. Everyone on my course will also be in the same position.

I’m interested in seeing how remote learning affects the way I feel about what it is I am learning and whether it makes an impact on how much I take from lectures, workshops, seminars and group discussions. It could be argued that with remote learning there are less distractions, but that would depend on where you are undertaking it. In a lecture theatre or a classroom, you have dozens of other people to look at. With remote learning, lots of students (myself included) will be in one room on their own.

Whatever happens, it will definitely be an experience! Over the following days I will blog about how I got on and what I felt about it all. Hopefully there won’t be any technical glitches!

Are you learning or working remotely? How have you found it? Let me know in the comments section below.

My new personal development blog focuses on learning, both academically and through our lives every day.

  1. First of all, welcome to blogging! Ngl online learning hasn’t been my favourite, although I do like that I can pretty much role out of bed a few minutes before my lecture and not have to worry about being late. Best of luck with your degree and blogtober! X

  2. I went back to college 4 years ago due to a decision to make a career change. At the time, the program that I wanted to take was a 6 hour drive away and I wasn’t in a position to up and move for the duration of the programming (I was still working). Instead, I did my full diploma online. I did have to show up for final exams, but outside of that, everything was done from home. It was DEFINITELY different from going to school in the past, but I realized I actually kinda liked it…
