Energy, Excellence, Erudition , Enthusiasm and Excitement

5 Nov

Here starts the high energy fortnight during which on Wednesday, the 7th of November I am delighted to be helping Becky Huxley-Binns, Chrissi Nerantzi and Advance HE staff  to induct and celebrate the 2018 National Teaching Fellows in Edinburgh. Looks like being a glittering event and what a privilege to be invited and welcome new NTFs to the fabulous Fellowship of Fellows.
The next day I will be flying down on Thursday to Southampton to go to Bournemouth on Friday for the great delight of being awarded an honorary doctorate at Bournemouth University. ​ Another great privilege and cause for celebration.

And then after spending a weekend with Debbie Holley and Michelle Morgan there, it’s off to Hove on Sunday to see my son Matt, and then Phil and I  are flying to Venice on Monday to attend a conference on Wednesday and Thursday at Padua University, one of the oldest and most venerable universities in Europe, on assessment and feedback, jointly with Phil and Kay Sambell. Thanks so much to Anna Serbati and Valentina Grion  for inviting us: our draft joint slides are here.  Padua-2018-draft-slides-Phil-Race-Kay-Sambell-and-Sally-Brown-w.pptx (11 downloads)

Then back to the UK post haste to join the SEDA conference in Birmingham, where I will be running an interactive workshop on professional identities: again the slides are here:  SEDA-Prof-Identities-Sally-Brown-ww.pptx (8 downloads)

As you might imagine, packing for this marathon tour is providing some challenges, so I am sending a box Parcelforce to Birmingham with supplies for my workshop, which you can see here:
