SDP 2011

Welcome to SDP 2011! We are delighted to have you all on board for the ninth OII SDP - and hope you will find it an exciting, enjoyable and challenging experience! This wiki is designed to be the main source of information about the academic programme, participants and social events. It is also a workspace which can be edited by any of you so that you can use it to support your time in Oxford.

Check back here regularly for important announcements and updates.

  • Wednesday 13th July - we will be meeting up with the students from the Annenberg-Oxford media policy summer school in the University Parks. If you'd like to join us, meet us at the Keble gates of the University Parks at 18:00. Tim will bring a football, and if we have enough interest we will have a bit of a kick about. If you want to bring your own food and drink we can also have a picnic. If it rains, we'll go the Royal Oak pub for drinks instead.
  • Thursday 14th July - Bill Spectre Ghost Tour will start at Oxford Castle at 19:30. As there is a play on at the castle that evening, please meet by the Ghost Tour advertising board just before the 'Unlocked courtyard'. The Castle is just off New Road near the Living Room bar.
  • Wednesday 20th July - The production of Anthony and Cleopatra tonight will start at 7.30pm at the Said Business School. If anyone wants to continue to work at OII until then I (Vicki) will be working late. There are plenty of restaurants en route which offer cheap pre-theatre meals if anyone wants suggestions.
  • SDP Evaluation Forms - Every year we ask students to complete an evaluation form giving us feedback which we can use to try and improve the experience for future students. The form is online, anonymous, and you need not answer every question. It will be available until 8th August, and we would really appreciate it if you could complete this.
