One-Day Event Activities

The Chair will open the event and a round table of the Board.

The Head of Department then will give a presentation on the "state of the Department" - new staff, student numbers, new courses, research info, plans etc for the year.

The Chair and an academic staff will then then give a presentation introducing the theme “Business Awareness in Technical Education”.

After lunch the board splits into groups and are given a flip chart and a room for some peace and quiet.  Each group discusses all the issues raised in the theme presentation.  Once they come back into the main meeting room, we then go round the groups with one person from each presenting their thoughts and suggestions.  There is a bit of discussion at this stage but once all the groups have spoken then there is a general discussion.
