These corridors are usually the hive of all activity, MSc students by the dozens, 130 undergraduates rushing to the PC room to put their images into the system for feedback, still it is early [ish] in the semester and panic has not set in yet, soon deadlines will be upon us and students will live here 24/7 then the peace will be gone

Today was the start of the Biological Photography module with the undergrads at the School of Biology, The University of Nottingham. This is an eleven-week module with 120-second year students in attendance. The students have four assignments and a final course project during these eleven weeks, each of the projects is designed to teach them the basic to advanced photography skills, and their projects are biological in theme.

The Students use an Olympus 420E Digital SLR with a 14-42mm lens during the period of the module; almost all of them have never used a SLR before and have no understanding of photography.

But they soon learn and produce outstanding pieces of work. The M.S.c students from the Biological Photography and Imaging course act as mentors to the undergrads, it is a two way learning systems, the undergrads are split into groups of ten, they then have a one to ten ratio, as the M.S.c student acts as a front line supervisor which in turn is supported by Steve Galloway Taught Course Specialist and headed by David McMahon the Imaging Course Convenor. Pictured are some of the M.S.c students interacting with the undergrads during the class room session
