AEA Open Meeting: First (and Second) Impressions of Durham

Tuesday 7 May 2013 | 1pm - 2pm
Hogan-Lovells Lecture Theatre, Palatine Centre

Professor Ward joined Durham as PVC Education in September 2012. Many aspects of university education are currently subject to significant changes, so in the light of this what does Durham need to do to maintain excellence and its distinctive character as an educational institution? Are excellence and distinctiveness even the right things to aim for? Tom will give us his impressions of Durham after a few months here and talk about his vision for the areas covered by his portfolio in teaching, learning and other aspects of education.

This meeting is an open meeting of the Academic Electoral Assembly – all University staff are encouraged to attend.

Andrew Millard
Chair of AEA

The Academic Electoral Assembly (AEA) consists of all members of staff performing academic or academic-related roles (normally taken to mean staff on Grade 7 or above)*, with the exception of ex officio members of Senate, together with the Senior Tutor (or one Tutor of equivalent rank) from each of the Recognised Colleges or Licensed Halls of Residence.

* All members of staff, however, are very welcome to attend general discussion meetings. Formal items of business, if there are any, will be conducted at the end of the meeting, at which time non-AEA members will be invited to leave.
