Any T214'ers taken TU811??

For anything that is not really to do with Systems - or at least so off topic as not to fit anywhere else.

Any T214'ers taken TU811??

Postby Karen on Sat Feb 01, 2014 1:15 am

Just wondering if anyone who has taken T214 has gone on to do TU811. Someone who has taken TU811 described it today and it sounds very similar to T214 - curious as to how it differs or what it brings/adds to things.

I didn't. But I did take the companion course in the PG cert in systems thinking TU812.

I think like you I thought TU811 sounded too much like T214 for me to bother with.

Unfortunately I hadn't realised how much TU812 is like T306. I had to wade thorugh a turgid tome by Ison. Yuk.

Why say it in ten words when a thousand will do!

Not me. As you know, I'm on 812.

If the faculty had not allowed me to count 812 towards my BSc, I'd have been tempted to count it towards the Dip and sign up to 811. I may yet want to do that in future, but as I've taken 812 for my BSc, I'm wondering how that might be possible if the OU doesn't allow modules to be double-counted.

Jim, any views, looking back, on Ison's book? Things that you took away from it etc?

Hi Karen

I'm expecting to enrol for TU811 soon for the May presentation. I already did TU812 and need this model as it is a compulsory element for a MSc.

Are you thinking of enrolling?

Hi Sue & Jim

I'm currently on TU812 (with jsp) and have enrolled in TU811 to make up my pg certificate. I've found TU812 very similar to T306 I was quite dispondent when I saw the Juggler Metaphor featuring prominently in block 2 (after T214, Block 2's fill me with dread anyway!) however the previous systems knowledge has allowed me to skim quite a bit of the module. I was hoping TU811 might be less 'turgid' :)

Have you signed up yet Sue?

James - you can double count modules once but for an honours degree need 120 level 3 unique points. Not sure how it works doing pg level for Bsc though. For example I used T214 and T306 for a diploma in systems practice on the way to my honours degree and my two level 1 courses for a certificate in business studies. I wasn't sure I'd make it to the end and wanted something in case I didn't. Now though seeing as I made it, I wish I could 'undo' the diploma and use them perhaps towards another degree. My regional centre were very helpful clarifying how I could use the modules so I'd give yours a call.
