We had our first hybrid DLAM team meeting on Monday (more about the ‘hybridness’ later).  I decided I wanted to do something a bit different for it and so I roped in a couple of team members (Stewart and Myles) to help and we got to work planning.  What I …

This week I’ve packed in a lot of hybrid meetings and I have had further reflections on how they work. I’m still totally loving our Teams Room set up that we now have in Room 6 and the Boardroom in Argyle House but I’ve been trying not to be selfish …

My granny used to say, ‘you get nothing for free’.  A bit cynical perhaps but from her I learned a few things from her over the years.  She lived through the war, was really careful with her money, and would walk miles to get a few pence off something she was buying.  She was full …

I’ve been back at work, part of the week, for almost a month now.  It’s a pretty surreal experience – some days it feels a bit like going to work on a Saturday.  The train is quiet, the office is quiet.  However, it’s been really nice to see other people …

We went into lockdown around a month or so before our exam period started so it was a bit of a race to work out exactly what we would do about most of our exams which were traditional exams, handwritten in exam halls around campus. Some exams were cancelled, some …

It’s been a while since I blogged – I’m sorry about that. I’ve had a load of possible blog post topics bubbling around in my head with very little time to reflect. However, I’m getting to the stage where I feel like a few blog posts might help clarify my …
