Inaugural meeting

We held the inaugural meeting of the ‘Opps for Apps’ project on Tuesday 21 October. We discussed our workplan, our roles, and the choice of Apps for the project. We decided on piloting a variety of Apps: Explore Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Eliot’s The Waste Land, Carmilla, and Alice in Wonderland. We will now approach colleagues to discuss the best way to embed them into modules. We also discussed the design of the questionnaires to collect student and staff feedback on the Apps. It was agreed that we will draw on the support of LearnTech colleagues, Rob Farmer and Al Holloway for help with this aspect of the project. We also discussed the Symposium; we will need to decide on format, arrange a date and invite speakers fairly soon. We also need to take on a research assistant and we agreed to identify and approach possible candidates.
