Hi patient first years: we have just created this fantastic device called an LJ Help Team (made up of a bunch of very enthusiastic second year students). Here they are, and here are the groups of you guys who they are going to work with. So please welcome this group of trusted, skilled, patient, artistic and highly knowledgeable LiveJournal Helpers:
Marc, Talin Agon TO Daniela Catanea
Timb, Amanda Ceccon TO Alexandra Davidov
Alison, Georgina Dickinson TO Lauren Hislop
Tamara, Sarah Humphreys TO Jodie Kirkwood
Rhani, Thomas Lagreca TO Shadi Nabavieh
Matthew , Elissa O’Brien TO David Setches
Anthony, Lyndal Simmonds TO Anastasia Zolotarev
The whole purpose of this exercise is to give me a hand and to make the LiveJournal experience all the more effective and beneficial for you. I am convinced that LiveJournal is a fantastic tool for amplifying your experience of literature, especially giving you the space and confidence to translate your reading into your creativity... so I will be keen to hear your reactions to this whole project......

PS as soon as I get them I will be uploading REAL pictures of all the LJ Academic Assistants.

Hey, are we allowed to pit our helpees against each other in academic death matches?

Hi Timb- I am not sure what I should reply to this.... help me.... I think it would be great if "helpees" could work together co-operatively and really gain a collective energy and wisdom in the process... how does that sound???? Cheers MG

I jest. I had a funny vision of you strolling through the LJ corridor and finding peaceful little Utopian communities till you came to my group who were practising a rhetorical form of martial arts, wearing little red bandannas, and maybe partaking of some literary commando training.

I can't find or access the discussion space set up in WebCT though for suggestions and communications

I think it will be a lot of good fun and enjoyment to liaison with first years that may be having problems or lacking in motivation. I'm a bit pressed for time at the moment, but when I get some mind-space tomorrow, I'll put my thinking cap on and come up with some ideas for harnessing collective energy, I think it will be a great success, despite not being able to have academic death matches.

But just on one final point and so it’s absolutely clear, my group isn’t allowed to declare war on other groups? . . . Are they? >:-)
