Advice and Feedback Hours 2015-16 Term Three: Tuesdays 10.30am-12.30pm weeks 1-5, then by appointment for the remainder of the term (weeks 7-10).
I have an electronic booking system to enable you to book a slot in my office hours instead of turning up and possibly having to wait. Please click on the "Advice and Feedback Hours" tab above. It is set to 15 minute slots but you are welcome to extend the end time of your booking if you feel this won't be sufficient time. If you haven't booked you are of course still very welcome to drop by but I will have to honour any bookings. Please email if you need to arrange an alternative time to meet.
Please note that Week 6 is Reading Week so I will not be holding advice and feedback hours that week. From week 7 for the remainder of the term my advice and feedback hours will be by appointment only, so please do email me with any queries or to make an appointment. Please also note that the nameplate has fallen off my office door, so do pay attention to the number (D1.09)!
