Tonight is the first DIY-DMU podcast, in which Dave, Mike, John and myself met up to talk about the different approaches we have to learning, and the kind of things we do to make our learning easier. We recorded the podcast in the concourse of the DMU Queens building. We will be running this podcast session each week, if you are a DMU student or member of staff, you can get involved via DMU Talk. Each week we’ll try and bring a guest so we can broaden the conversation and discuss whatever is on our minds at the time.
