The past few weeks have been intertwined with meetings and our Evaluation Report on this project.
I just recently got involved in this project (5 weeks ago) and am glad to say that despite the steep learning curve, much progress was achieved over such a short time.
We were able to meet with key stakeholders, including the Director of the International Office, Faculty Director of Teaching & Learning, CDoTL team members, and academics in the Departments of Chemistry and Food & Nutritional Sciences who work a lot with international students.
Key actions arising from these meetings:
Increase awareness of the project via:
- Post in the Teaching & Learning blog
- T&L showcases
- Delivery & Enhancement of Learning & Teaching meeting’s report
Further to meeting those people, we were also able to get the support of Careers, Placement & Experience Centre (CPEC, previously SEECC) and obtain some very useful data from them.
Key tip from the recent two weeks:
You never know who can help you and how? Give it a try and meet your colleagues.
We will soon meet up with more stakeholders (HODs, Pro-VCs, FDTLs, more CDoTL members, International Support Services) in order to gather as much information as possible to tailor our recommendations for this project.
We are also looking into deploying a survey to all the schools/departments involved in this project. We are mapping as many questions as we can from the Pathfinder project (from CDoTL).
Further updates will follow.
