As I have said many times on this blog, the Council of Academic Deans is one of the hardest working groups in the Consortium.
They gathered on Monday at VTS in the new ‘Deans Dining Room’ at VTS for lunch and discussion. The most interesting part is the sharing of information and concerns over lunch. Insights into accreditation preparations and visits are among the items mentioned.
The second most interesting part is the discussion of Academic matters. Significantly, the Deans decided to continue a yearly discussion of online courses and their strengths and weaknesses. They will engage this next November.
They reviewed Faculties’ Convocation 2010 at Wesley [many thanks to Wesley for all the hard work] and planned Faculties’ Convocation 2011.
I sometimes find the meetings exhausting–but they are always most interesting.
