    On the one day I get to sleep in:

    - Got woken up last night at 2 am by the fire alarm
    - Waited outside in the cold till 2:45 before they fixed the problem
    - Got woken up again at 7 by the fire alarm going off again
    - Got REALLLY scared when my locked door suddenly opened and a maintenance guy walks in to check my fire alarm ~ 11am
    - And here I am heading back to lectures

    Yeah, we have to do one. I'm doing mine on the new warfarin alternative dabigatran.

    I remember someone on here talking about having to do this a few years back - they brought a bottle of wine in and did a wine tasting session.
    I'm going to do how to cook a stir fry I think because I'm boring as ****.

    EDIT: Never mind. I'll just use the one on your facebook profile.

    • Avoid powerpoint
    • If you have to use it, don't read off the slide
    • Ask questions to the audience
    • Aim to give your talk for 3/4 of the time to ensure you leave time for questions and finish on time


    Or you could just tell them to go to the pub and you will be a winner all round! :p:
    Thanks for the advice!! I am too much of a wimp not to use a powerpoint, but I have cut down what I had by two thirds and most of what's left is pictures, so I'm hoping it's going to be OK. I wish I could just take them to the pub!!! But I don't think the medical school would approve sadly...

    In other news I need to make a 15 minute presentation on a non-medical topic. I need to teach it. I have literally no idea what I'm going to do. Suggestions?
    We all had to do this recently, there was quite a lot of variety. In my group there was netball, rugby tackle, putting, relativity, cello, paper boat making, off side rule and fishing. Other groups had cooking, wine tasting and urdu. What are you good at? If you pick something you already know loads about it will make it much easier. Good luck!

    Cheers matey. Lets me verify my claim from the first sesh. I was finding trouble finding a paper I had access to that proved that long term recall was much greater from PBL than lectures.

    Atm, I've settled on making a stir fry just because it's easy, I have some ideas for seperate slides and I think there's not a lot of scope for asking ridiculous questions. My only other major skills are computers and a quick presentation on computer hardware maintence would be the driest ****.

    Oh ****, maybe I want to teach the 10 dimensions... Hmm...

    A fifteen minute presentation would be quite fun. Not sure what I would do it on. Possibly teach a few basic waltz steps although probably not enough time, maybe some chacha. In which case maybe something sailing related...hmm. What else could I do I wonder.
    I would much prefer this to my mandatory presentation on a dull topic.

    We do literature reviews, although they are our ARs (Analytical Reviews) rather than SSSs (the latter are 10 minute presentations on up to date research within the module currently being studied).

    They are on set papers and we have one a module (so this year, 3) and they are of 2000 word length

    That depends on where you're coming from :p:

    If you're in London, it's simply a case of London Liverpool --> Norwich --> UEA (bus)

    There's also a megabus that goes from Victoria --> UEA :dontknow:

    Yeah, I only found out today and Brixton is sold out. Everywhere is sold out apart from Glasgow and Norwich. Going to ring up Brixton to see if there's any tickets going though on hold or anything, will let you know if I do.

    Megabus? Is that at dodge times though? Otherwise there must be a national express coach... The train will otherwise go from stratford too right? Should be pretty easy to get there and back.

    Pretty sure I've got the Friday off as well so I can go on a full on bender afterwards, not sure what Norwich is like on a Thursday night though?

    I've no idea tbh. And yeah there is National Express to campus too And yeah some trains stop at Stratford, some don't (I think it's every other train but you'd have to check)

    Thursday night is student night in town so it should be alright. It's the weekend that can be a bit dodge :p:

    Tidy. The trains are going to be too early on Thursday night (last train 10pm) anyway so I'm going to have to stay in Norwich til 5am ish.

    Now to convince one of my other flatmates who's get on exam at 9am on Friday morning that this is a good idea.
