It was the first session of the Foundation Degree in Music Industry Entrepreneurship today. We covered Study Skills: namely an 800 word essay on a topical area of the music industry, a 10 minute presentation on the music industry (using screen capture software), and the setting up and documentation of a music industry related blog. The 2nd half of the session was related to teaching the students how to claim accreditation for the experience and qualifications they already have. This will be followed up by weekly tutorials supporting students to do this. All of the students come from a wide range of backgrounds in the Welsh music industry, and I am really looking forward to helping them work through the course. In the coming weeks I will share RSS feeds of what students are blogging about, in addition to other bits and pieces. Watch this space.
On another note, for those of you that have time, I have a radio interview tomorrow at 11.00 with Scott Travers. Catch it online live at http://www.newusb.co.uk/
