We already know that life at Beyond Distance is never boring. Actually, things are both challenging and exciting … and about to change up a gear once more. Consider the following:
- The new Strategy for Learning Innovation was signed off by the University’s Senate in July. This document will lead to further major developments in terms of our work, our research outputs and how the University sees — and seizes — the future of HE learning and teaching.
- A proposal for new PG academic programme on the Future of Learning in HE is being developed for approval.
- New staff members have already been and are being recruited, bringing new blood, additional expertise and diversity to the team.
- We are moving to new premises within the University in the coming weeks, which, among other benefits, will enable us to relocate and enhance the Media Zoo .
- … and much, much more.
I invite readers to watch this space, as Beyond Distance prepares for the very exciting times ahead.
