Welcome to week 2 of the online course. This week we are going to be looking at the changes in learning between further education and higher education, how to start to support your points with reading and how to use Harvard Referencing Conventions.

1) What do you think are the three main differences between learning at further education (16-18 schools/colleges) and higher education (university)? Answer the following points on the Padlet (link below). Consider what other people say as well. Put your name at the top if you wish.

When writing about the differences make sure that you;

-State the differences clearly
-State why you think this is the case
-What impact you think this would have on you as a learner.

2) Go to and read about referencing. Follow the YSJ Harvard (all courses) at the bottom of the page. Read the next page and download and read the guide. Try to use this in the next activity.

3) Referencing is a very important part of all your assignments at university.

-Edit your post about what you are interested in education.

-Add three sources, referencing these correctly. These could be books, webpages or articles. You don’t need to have read these, just use some which seem appropriate. I will look at these and let you know about your referencing.

As ever, if you have any questions then do not hesitate to contact either myself or Clare. You will be revisiting referencing in your first-year professional module, but getting involved with it before you start the course will be very helpful.
