We have been working with SAGE Publications again to create an academic year planner for 2014/15. The planner is part of the SAGE study skills promotion distributed through campus bookshops, and shows a range of SAGE study guides, see below for details…

“It’s Back to University time again, and that means at SAGE we’re helping campus bookshops around the UK get ready for the start of the new academic year. Every year we run a special promotion for our SAGE Study Skills books, with an exclusive in-store discount for students and a range of great freebies for them to get their hands on.

We’re really excited to work with Foldedsheet again this year, to produce a specially customised LearnHigher Academic Year Planner as one of the giveaways. Featuring a range of handy study skills tips from our books, it’s the ideal tool to help students plan out their study time, coursework and revision for 2014/15.

Along with the lovely planners, this year we’re also giving away tote bags (featuring our study skills bingo game!), highlighter pens and bookmarks with study tips – perfect for getting organised for the new term. So if you’ve got a bookshop on campus, make sure you pop in and take a look.”

Again this year, universities shared a print run of the LearnHigher Generic academic year planner 2012/13. For all those who are not studying at the universities who ordered them… we had some extras printed and have added them to our online shop.

Every year for the past five years, we have sponsored the expeditions and fieldwork planning event Explore, held annually at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) with our Foldedsheet year-to-view planners. This year we were asked to run the Communicating Your Discoveries advice desks in the Education Centre at the society, and gathered together over twenty explorers during the weekend to advise delegates on how to communicate their discoveries before, during and after their expeditions.

We showed a range of Foldedsheets – the mappazines Ken360 and PROfile in addition to Confluences from the Editions series. Emily Penn brought some of her brilliant expedition sketchbooks, Andy Welch brought his Wandermap work, and among other books we showed Arita Baaijens’ very lovely Desert Songs. We also had access to the data-projector, where we were able to show examples of websites, blogs and tweets. The main advice desk contributors were: Luce Choules, Emily Penn, Andy Welch, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop, Geordie Torr, Al Humphreys, Tom Kevill-Davies, Tom Allen and Tim Moss. Speakers taking part in the main lecture programme and workshops over the weekend also gathered around the desks to share their experience in photography, writing and various forms of social media. It was a fantastic weekend – the best in the five years we have been there – Digital Explorer Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop summed up the event in his recent post here.

“The reporting back is essential. Whatever you do, there’s no point in doing something just for yourself… the world isn’t a playground any longer, we can’t afford to just do our own thing. Not really.” Benedict Allen.

If you are like us and have lots of stuff booked in for next year already, then we have some good news… our 2012 year-to-view planner has arrived! Check out our shop site to buy it online.

This year we had six universities sharing a print run of the LearnHigher Generic academic year planner 2010/11 – nearly 10,000 were printed! For all those who are not studying at the universities who ordered them… we had some extras printed and have added them to our online shop.

We have now produced more than 100,000 of our Foldedsheet publications – which include editions, mappazines, notemaps and planners. So far, our smallest print run is 500, most of our work ranges from 1,000–5,000 units, and our largest run is 12,000. We have produced single-colour, 2, 3, 4 and 5-colour work, single and double-sided publications. We now have six established finished format sizes in our range and this number is growing with each new project – we have come a long way.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners for these projects – the best products have been collaborative and informed, and would not have been possible without the expertise, support and hard graft of everyone involved in the process! We look forward to working with many more inspiring people and forward-thinking organisations on the journey ahead – we have much to do.

We have confirmed orders from a total of thirteen universities for the 2010/11 LearnHigher academic year planners (layouts are on our Tumblr resource).

Aston University
University of Bournemouth
University of Brighton
Brunel University
City University London – Cass Business School

We will be producing a German-language version of the LearnHigher planner 2010/11 with Universität Wien, Austria. The planner is based on the original English-language version developed by LearnHigher. For the translation work involved to produce the new German-language option, the University of Vienna have recently been appointed as an ‘Associate’ of LearnHigher.

We have been working with LH researchers in Time Management for nearly two years now, developing a range of visual planning resources for students in Higher Education. Next month, Michelle Reid (University of Reading) and Pauline Ridley (University of Brighton) of the LearnHigher CETL will be making a presentation titled Visualising the future: creating new paper-based resources at the LDHEN symposium. See reid_abstract for an outline of the parallel session, or view the PDF presentation here: Visualising the Future LDHEN 09 powerpoint slides

“The 6th annual symposium of the Learning Development in Higher Education Network (LDHEN) will be held on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th April 2009 at Bournemouth University. This year’s symposium theme offers an opportunity to engage with a range of debates about the nature and purposes of learning development.”

See the ALDinHE (Association for Learning Development in Higher Education) website for more details of this symposium.

We have just printed a new (promo) planner for LearnHigher, using a similar template to the 2008/9 Generic version (see earlier posts, or check out the Tumblr archive for more details). However, this one has been updated to include three double-height panels of ‘Top Tips’ from the 20 learning areas of LearnHigher. The planner has been requested by, and distributed to, nearly 60 universities across the UK. This is part of LearnHigher research and development at the University of Reading – see www.learnhigher.ac.uk for more details of this project. The 2009/10 LearnHigher planner template is also in the final stages of development, details of which will be released soon.

This academic planner has been developed in conjunction with the University of Brighton and the University of Reading as part of the LearnHigher CETL.

Pilot Scheme: foldedsheet Academic Year-to-View Planners 2008/9

Over the next few weeks we are gathering feedback and comments from the four universities involved in our pilot scheme: Royal College of Art, Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, University College Falmouth and Trinity College of Music. A total of 700 foldedsheet Academic Year-to-View planners were distributed to their students in September 2008.

We are looking forward to hearing their views.

Critical feedback and user comments are very important to our process of research and development. The Universities involved in the pilot scheme are part of this process, their feedback will provide the ideas and inspiration to refine and improve the 2009/10 version of the planner.

All feedback welcomed, honest appraisal of the planners will really help in the development of this resource. There is always room for improvement and through the pilot scheme we hope students and staff will be generous and thoughtful with their opinions and comments.

THE SCHEME

Four Higher Education Art Institutions will pilot our Foldedsheet year planners, these will be distributed to undergraduate and postgraduate students. The universities will receive over 100 planners each, enabling 700 students to visually map their time at university this academic year. Project planning, assessment deadlines, work schedules, important appointments and lectures can all be ‘mapped’ on the planner.

THE UNIVERSITIES

Royal College of Art
Central St. Martins College of Art and Design
University College Falmouth
Trinity College of Music

Our planners have plenty of room to jot down appointments, a large weekly overview section and lots of space for notes. Carry it around with you like a diary, stick it up on the wall to see what your whole year looks like, or if you are a bit short of space fold your planner and secure with a clip to view two months at a time instead…

you can also fold it to see six months to view, use it as a personal notice board, apply colour-coded stickers, add post-it notes, stick reminders and scraps to it, use highlighter pens, hang it from a clip, tape it to the wall, fold and re-fold it… to work out how your big ideas and projects can be organised.

For over 30 years, the Royal Geographical Society in London have hosted the premier event for expedition & fieldwork planning. For the second year running, we are showing our support to this fantastic 3-day event by supplying each delegate with one of our 2009 year planners.

This year, Luce has been invited to speak at one of the workshops during the weekend event. She will be part of the Photography panel advising delegates about the documentation of visual information.

DATES FOR THE DIARY:

We have been working with LearnHigher Time Management researchers at the University of Reading, to produce a suite of academic year planners with 6 universities in the LearnHigher partnership. LearnHigher also provides a diverse range of online learning resources available to students – our initial contact came through the University of Brighton, who lead the Visual Practices area.

The Generic version (or template LearnHigher planner) will be piloted with 3 of the LearnHigher partner institutions: Manchester Metropolitan University, Nottingham Trent University and Plymouth University, who will all receive 500 each to pilot with a focus group of students.

The image above shows the Generic version, which carries the LearnHigher branding and information about the LearnHigher partnership, including details of web-links to LearnHigher services. This was then modified for three of the LearnHigher partner universities, with university branding, local information, department services, and university or course related dates.

The planner for the University of Reading, uses some modification of the LearnHigher template with logo placement and local info/services added. All students at Reading (10,000) will receive these at the beginning of term…

The University of Brighton, in addition to logo placement and local info/services, also opted to show a visual weekly time-line. All first year students (7,500) will receive one each in their induction week…

Liverpool Hope University opted for logo placement, local info/services, a visual weekly time-line, and the greatest level of modification, including a colour change and course-related details within the daily sections to assist students in planning their time. All level C students (3,000) will receive the planner at the start of term…

We look forward to hearing how the students have used their new planners.

To see all the layouts for the LearnHigher publications, see our Tumblr archive.

We have made even more space on the sheet since last year for our regular planner…
