'The Big Blether Autumn 2021 #OUStudentVoiceWeek Special'

Student Voice Week is a celebration of all the different ways that Open University students can get involved in the university's decision-making.

This year the #OUStudentVoiceWeek will run between Saturday 13 and Sunday 21 November. During the week, the OU and OU Students Association will host a range of online activities for students to get involved in and have their voices heard.

At this session the OU in Scotland and OU Students Association invite OU students to join us for a blether via a video call.

A good blether can help us through a tough time, give us the confidence to overcome a hurdle or just put a smile on our face at the end of a long day. At the start of this drop-in event, we’ll hear wellbeing tips from OU Lecturer in Education Studies, Kate Lister.

Photo of Kate ListerKate’s talk from 20.00-20.15 will discuss how OU students can build develop a positive, valued identity as a distance learner. Kate (pictured) will share tips for building confidence in study, increasing self-awareness as learners, and reflecting on challenges and achievements in order to develop a growth mindset.

You'll have the opportunity to put your questions to Kate, as well as general questions to OU in Scotland staff and OU Students Association representatives. 

Book your place by the end of Tuesday 16 November, via the online registration form for The Big Blether. Once registered, you will be provided with a link to the event which will be held via Microsoft Teams. (Event is for OU students only).
