Today’s tutorial was to discuss with Andy what my final outcome will be.
i forgot to mention that the previous time that we had tutorial we brainstorm and came out with ten of ideas of what my outcome can be.
Then after the tutorial i went home and i thought some more ideas of what i can do.
However, even thought i wanted to do a campaign were students of my university could take part in competitions or videos that i wanted to create i realized that this was not efficient.
The reason was that the academic season for BA students had finish and the MA students were busy by doing their projects so they were no students available that could take part in my campaign. I decided to keep going with a mobile application.
I told Andy my idea but even though he thought as well that the campaign idea was better i explained to him the reasons for not be able to do that.
Today we had a workshop with our tutor Jackie and Dr Jane Birkin.
Its the second time that Dr Jane Birkin came to discuss with us her work and show to us her sketchbooks and that is a kind move.
She gave to us advises on how to present our outcomes in the exhibition and she share her experience of being a Communication Designer student as well. More over she kindly offer to help us to find a title for our project.
We separated into two groups. Half of the students was about to discuss their title with Jane Birkin and others with our tutor Jackie.
I was in Jackie’s group.
I can say that it was a helpful workshop session.
Today i had my meeting with the English tutor. the aim was to finalize my research question but we discuss as well about what i was thinking my outcome will be. I share with her my ideas and because as i could understand she is into healthy diet as well she kindly told me about some of healthy eating campaigns that she heard about. She agreed with me that the food that our canteen is serving is unhealthy and that the “healthy food” is limited and expensive. She encourage me to continue with my ideas as she found them interesting and she gave me some more tips.
The Final FMP research question is ” How can communication design can educate students about healthy diet and motivate them to produce their own meals”
This week’s session was about how to write good reflective report. Most of us didn’t know exactly what we should include on a reflective report so our tutor Andy thought that this session might be a good idea as we have to create a reflective film for our FMP.
The Important things that Andy suggested to us to have in mind when we are going to write our report is to :
- Describe (what i have done, where i did it, when)
- Interpret (taking apart and understand it eg: why i fell asleep? – Because i havent eaten breakfast)
- Evaluate (to understand what your actions are and the results of your action)
- Plan (what i would do different next time)

I have been follow her page on facebook, twitter and Instagram the last two years and i have to say that she is giving a clear and interesting tips about how to keep your diet healthy and at the same time tasty. She explains a lot of things like why carbohydrates are not bad for you what are the benefits of certain foods and her explanation are really clear so every one can understand what she is saying.
She is sharing those tips in Videos and also written like articles as well. Moreover she is sharing healthy recipes again in video and also with words on the side so everyone will be able to follow her.
For me she was the most appropriate person to contact for my FMP so that if i needed any advice on how to continue on specific things on my project to be able to help me.
I decided to email her and i was waiting for her response. I was so excited when she reply back to me positively and also her answer was really friendly.
