Project Students - its that time of year again

this is the time of year that I get to meet a whole new batch of project students. Its interesting, but also reminds me that these folk may be new to academic conventions.

I place a big emphasis on developing writing, because so often folk are let down by their written communication of good work.

Today I chanced on a very excellent web site which provides concrete examples of good referencing style

well worth a good look

Its been a while - visualisation stuff

Not sure why life has got the better of me, but hey ho!
occasional readers (for there can be none other given the paucity of posts) will understand I have an interest and passion for visualisations

The Importance of Visual Literacy
today, in an effort to express myself I found an update on the visual literacies website and also stumbled on this blog while trying to work out the right way to represent some tricky information

on top of that The good folk at have got some tutorials online. I shall certainly be pointing all my project and phd students and the one on Business visualisations. The general principles outlined there are, I think, just right for an undergraduate student project and for first year post grad work too.
