Shorter week this week due to the Easter holiday.
Attended the Wonkhe and Adobe Education Espresso online event – Curriculum for the whole person. There was an excellent presentation from Hull University.
I spent most of the week in London working in our London office.
Wrote up notes for internal and external use on the Senior Education and Student Experience Group meeting. I also updated CRM for those that attended the Senior Education and Student Experience Group meeting. Spent time planning logistics and informing for (next) Senior Education and Student Experience Group Meeting on 21st April.
Had a meeting on a possible Learning Spaces session for Connect More. In the end I recognised what I wanted from the session and how I would like to run it, wasn’t aligned. So, I dropped myself from the session. From a strategic perspective, I want a learning spaces session at Connect More, this doesn’t mean I need to deliver such a session.
Planning a meeting with SURF sharing notes on the concepts of the Smart Campus and the Intelligent Campus.
Went down to Portsmouth, to look at a city campus. I am planning some reports on the smart city, civic university, belonging. I wanted some inspiration for a place I had not visited before.
Spent time planning and inviting colleagues to some internal personalisation workshops. This will be followed by some external workshops. We are doing this as part of a strategic target that we will undertake and publish research into the concept of personalised learning and what it could mean for higher education.
I was supporting our events team with invitations for people to present at Connect More.
Thursday, we had our monthly sector strategy leads meeting.
Had to spend some time planning travel and accommodation for April and May. I am off to LILAC 23, UCISA’s Spotlight 23, as well as some internal training in London.
My top tweet this week was this one.
Sadly the IFTTT recipe for posting from Instagram to Twitter no longer works. Looks like my personal stream is about to get much more textual…
