Busy in Bournemouth, Bloomsbury and Benton!

7 Oct

This week I’m contributing to the REF TEF conference at Bournemouth University where my focus in the panel session is Teaching Excellence. This  is a topic I have spent 100+ hours thinking about in the last 18 months as I led the ANTF. Consultation responses on TEF. we live in strange times and with the NSS weighting being significantly reduced and the Tory pledge to cap fees, it seems difficult to predict how the take up of TEF will be in the next year. My slides for Bournemouth are here:  Bournemouth-11-Oct-2017-w.pptx (543 downloads)
For the rest of the week I am contributing to the Bournemouth PGCertHE, meeting colleagues from Deakin university, chairing the ANTF committee and discussing inclusivity as well as being Granny Sally on Monday and Tuesday, and returning to host a PhD writing weekend at home next Saturday. This semi-retirement lark doesn’t give me time to be bored!
