New year, new directions, same old me!

1 Jan

Happy New Year to everyone!

I hope your festive season was delightful and satisfying!

And have you made any New Year resolutions? I’m largely in favour of active ones rather than ones that require stopping doing something, so mine is at last to try to publish some children’s stories (I had better do so, or my granddaughter Poppy will be very cross with me!)

So this week Phil and I are off to London and environs where he will work for Capel Manor College and I will be keynoting at Greenwich University on Friday 5th January on Enthusing and Energizing Students: celebrating and recognizing excellent teaching, and also running a workshop on assessment: my slides for both are here: Greenwich-assess-workshop-4-engagment-and-retention-w.pptx (153 downloads)   Greenwich-Jan5th-w.pptx (121 downloads)
