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...
