York was a useful experience and it was useful to meet the other Pathfinder institutions – especially those in our cluster. We also learned that Groinne will be our critical friend, although unfortunately she was not at the meeting. We got a lot of information that will help us finalise our project plan that needs to be submitted tomorrow. We are also still waiting to get our e-benchmarking summary signed off, which also needs to go in tomorrow.
It was agreed that we should continue to use this blog as our outward facing blog, and our cluster agreed to set up a blog for our group on Helga for team discussions.
As for the project itself, it is proceeding well, and we reported to our Steering Group last week about our initial engagement with 12 Colleges, Faculty and Departments, and with 52 students. A number of areas of interest are already starting to emerge which affect the student experience, such as the design of learning spaces and connectivity.
