My last week in the office. In so called normal times this would be a week of festive meals, socialising and last minute Christmas shopping. I spent most of the week sitting at my desk in my home office working.
It was also a time to start finishing things off and avoiding starting anything new. A lot of people seem to use this week to clear their desk and as a result you end up with a lot to do. I both try and avoid doing that to other people and try to ensure it doesn’t happen to me. I think as I get to the end of the week I was quite successful in doing that. Despite doing all that as a result of a meeting on Friday last week I spent the best part of this week working on a blended learning proposal.
We did a briefing for the Jisc Account Managers on the new consultancy service that I am co-developing at Jisc. Positive feedback about the service which was then followed up by a few calls as well.
I also with our external consultant finalised the themes for the new higher education strategy for Jisc. This should be published in early 2021.
My top tweet this week was this one.
Hi @Morrisons bought a pack of apples this afternoon. Alas one had a friend. Can I have a refund please? pic.twitter.com/nBSwopQ4Na
