London Metropolitan University 8th July 2014
I am always amazed and encouraged by the vast number of new projects and initiatives that academic staff and professional service departments here at London Met continue to produce and deliver.
The wide range of presentations and workshops this year as with every year it appears just seems to get better and better. You may think ithis is easy for me to say as I work here and would of course promote all that we do, and indeed this may be the case! However, I am fortunate to be working in a central service, which allows me the benefit of working alongside and with many of these keen and insightful enthusiastic members of staff.
I am in the privileged position to offer support and technical guidance for many of these projects.
Here are just a few of the projects I am fortunate to be involved in:
The Digital Literacy project
Jim Pettiward and Chris O’Reilly
Heroes and Villains (An Academic Honesty and Integrity website)
Thandi Lazarus, Amrit Kaur, Robert Walsha, Anne Foley and Chris O’Reilly
The Take 5 project
Sandra Sinfield, Tom Burns, Claire Bradshaw and Chris O’Reilly

It is certainly in the day-to-day challenges and intricacies of my work that I am able to see at first hand the enormous enthusiasm and continued support our staff offer to our students, not just in the daily teaching and support but in many other ways, trying to think outside the box and how best we might put new ideas and concepts over to our students. It is something that I have been aware of for many years, and just when you think you have done all you can… you think of something else!!!!
