DELTA Module 2: The Calm before the storm

Well. After a few years break due to…different reasons. I’m finally getting back to completing my DELTA. You might have thought that I had completed my DELTA at some point as it’s pretty unusual to drag it out for so long. However, I’m not your typical person and so I’ve gone my own route. Why […]

Starting the DELTA Module 3

The time has come for me to start Module three of the Delta. After passing Module one last year (few!) I didn’t jump into taking the next part straight away but took some time off from the Delta. That’s one of the really nice things about doing it modally and at a distance, you can […]

Reflecting on Delta Module one

Delta diary Unit 5

Wait a second…Unit 5…That’s over half my input units finished for Module one! Argh! A very scary realisation to suddenly have but at the same time a big relief. I haven’t really had time to process and assimilate all the ideas and information from the units. It really is a big set up from the […]

DELTA Diary week 2

Another week down and another week closer to completing the DELTA. I’m sure I’ll soon regret doing the DELTA the long way when it feels like I’ve been studying for months and still have months to go but at the same time I’m sure I’ll appreciate the extra time to absorb the information and reflect on it via […]
