End of programme meeting

This Tuesday, we took part in the final programme meeting in Brimingham – quite a momentous milestone. It feels like a long journey from the initial meeting 18 or so months ago! The close of the meeting involved making an object or giving a presentation about the journey of our project. Here’s Lesley making our thing:

And here’s what it looked like at the end:

The journey of our project, with string

Is it merely a bunch of stuff and some string? Or is it an heterogeneous network of actants that has been engineered to achieve project completion? Either way, the cash has strings attached, digital devices are central an potentially oppositional binaries of new and traditional technologies (and texts) have been shown as linked.

 

Resources from the programme meeting, Brimingham

Last week, we gathered in Birmingham for a programme meeting; as part of this, all the projects presented outputs from their work in a ‘trade fair’ activity.

We offered two resources: a poster, that gives an overview of some of the evidence from our studies and raises questions for institutions to consider; and a guide to using qualitative data about the student experience to inform institutional decision making.

We chose these because between them, they cover both the process and the substantive findings of the work we’ve done to date. We designed them to give people resources to think with, without pre-judging what issues they might be facing locally. Since we recognise that our institution isn’t typical, we wanted to prompt people to think about how these concerns might play out for them.
