Apologies for the lack of recent updates, the last couple of months have been the busiest of my working life to date and I simply have not had the time to dedicate to keeping the blog up to date. To give you an idea of the activities I have been involved in:
- Assisting in the drafting of a new LLB programme (which ultimately has been put on ‘pause’ for the time being unfortunately).
- Starting as an external examiner for 6 modules across 4 different undergraduate LLB degrees with the University of Westminster in London.
- Presenting at the Higher Education Academy 3rd Annual Scottish legal education conference in Edinburgh.
- Teaching and assessing for 3 modules across 2 different campus, not helped by the cancelling / rescheduling of classes due in the first instance to bad weather and the second when I had to undergo minor surgery.
This in addition to other usual workplace meetings and issues. I am looking forward to 2012 allowing me some more time to dedicate to my own research and maintaining this blog a bit more regularly as I have a reduced teaching load in comparison to the past trimester, although I am commencing with the use of some innovative assessment methods for the first time that may require a bit more attention than usual to ensure it all runs smoothly.
For the time being, I hope you all had a fantastic 2011, and looking forward to a happy and prosperous 2012.
