Study groups

The logic of the study groups is that they are self-organised, rather than organised. A vital part of the course is the experience of planning and managing your own study activities. This means that if students want to change the seminar times, or their names on the wiki, they are expected to do it themselves.

Your seminar group is the same as your PSY259 group. Your seminar times are:

Thursday @ 9am: Groups 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Thursday @ 10am: Groups 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Thursday @ 11am: Groups 11, 12, 13, 14, 15

Thursday @ 12pm: Groups 16, 17, 18, 19

Introductory meetings are week 2 in the psychology computer room. After that you are expected to arrange your own meeting rooms (but you may move your meeting time around to suit the group). List of names and assigned groups here: seminar_groups. Our mission: week2_tasks
