Although the current teaching has finished for the year, this doesn’t mean that the staff can start a long vacation, only to resurface again in the middle of September. The summer time is a good time for staff to concentrate on research and network by presenting their work at international conferences.
Also, the summer is a good time to start to plan for the next year’s teaching. Tomorrow the staff in the school, from Computing, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering will meet together for a day long meeting at Plymouth University’s Marine Station.
As well as updates on planning from the School Executive, the meeting will include talks and workshops on: making the most out of lectures lasting two hours, and how to use skype and webinars in teaching.
As well as the cool river front location, the food is normally pretty good.
