Comment box for all UNNC’s doctoral deg students

As a Campus Teaching Committee representative, I am representing doctoral degree students across faculties on campus and set this site up. It has been a difficult journey to find a free forum platform that is accessible in this part of the world (in fact I created several forums), but the wait is over.

Click here to leave thoughts, comments etc. We want to hear your bad and good experiences in UNNC.

Enough talking about me, time to share your ideas and experience. Indeed, the time our voices are heard. Go on then! Note: the girl is not me. It was a template from Wix 🙂

New project: Benches in UNNC


Today has been a glorious day, the first sunny day after the typhoon. I was wandering around campus where we live, stumbled upon some fantastic scenery of scattered benches, playful light and shadows near the staff apartments. Absolutely gorgeous. So I thought, that will a next small project: documenting (bolted down) sitting spaces, particularly views from where we sit. My aim is just simple, trying to step back and appreciate those landscape furniture. I am sure they are there for purpose. The expected outcome will be a kind of sketchy map of UNNC benches and series of photographs.

Your part: if you have any particular benches you often sit on, let me know 🙂 And yes, those benches are limited to permanent benches on campus (University of Nottingham Ningbo China).

Here are some of my favourite shots today:

Ningbo bike route card 1: UNNC – Park Hyatt – UNNC


hyatt route_cover2_contributorshyatt route_1The bike route cards are initiated by John Higham based on his experience biking with a set of printed postcard size cards. We piloted one of the usual route, the loop from UNNC to Dong Qian Lake via Park Hyatt Hotel. The idea is to provide cyclists with visual cues in form of photographs with arrows. It is the shortest route we have so far, if you happen to know more routes, give us a shout.

Mia Tedjosaputro_A3 PAPER_artwork competition

I submitted a proposal for an artwork competition, organised by the library.

The idea came on one fine afternoon, I had a chat with Matt about his surplus chain he was holding. His brand spanking new titanium chain. And I said “what can we do with that?”
