Tutors, tutors, everywhere

At the beginning of the week there was a two-day conference for tutors who will be involved in delivering the first stage of the new MBA curriculum from next year. It was an intensive and very useful event. Aside from the progress we made on many questions to do with programme delivery, management and design, I did notice two things:

1. Standing up in front of 102 tutors is a lot scarier prospect than talking to MBAs or managers. The way around this for me was to visualise the audience as MBAs.

2. For some reason, faculty enjoy asking questions on subjects that have nothing to do with them, thus often diverting the value of the session into an intellectual or procedural siding. :)

Am now looking forward to the Stage Two conference...

If you need to do a research that can directly challenge the general educational methods as well as propose new ideas you may require best writing company. We help students who have to complete one or more written research proposals as on the given topic at their university or other establishment. My own study will surely become a theoretical part of some study in future.
