Introducing Student Services – staff events commencing 16 May [Updated 23 May]


May 10th, 2016

The way that the University deals with student administration will begin changing from August this year. From Admissions through Registration, Module Enrolment, Examinations and Graduation, the people, processes and the systems we rely on to carry out these tasks will start to transition to a new way of working.

The University has organised a number of events to give staff the opportunity to find out how student administration will operate from September 2016. These events are open to all staff and will run from Monday 16 May through to Friday 27 May. There will be a presentation and colleagues will have the opportunity to ask questions about how these changes will affect both staff and students.

The programme of events can be found below. Each event is expected to run for one hour and no sign-up is required – just turn up to an event of your preference.

  • Monday 16 May, 10am, A02, Lecture Block, Sutton Bonington, hosted by Prof Kevin Shakesheff

Please let us know how long these sessions will last, as we need to be able to slot a session in to our very busy diaries. More notice would have been helpful. Thank you.

Hi Judith,

Thanks for pointing this out – we have updated the article to specify the length of the sessions.

Each session is planned for one hour, but most have some overrun time built into them to allow for discussion.

Thanks,
Ryan

Myself and 25 colleagues from across the university attended ‘Monday 23 May, 9.30am, B63, Law and Social Sciences Building, University Park, hosted by Kevin Shakesheff ‘this morning only to find that no one had turned up to talk to us by 9:45am!! The above page still showed we had attended the correct venue at 9:56am.

Finally one of the attendees rang Transform to be told that the meeting had been moved to Physics; how were staff informed of this change? And why change the venue anyway since B63 was evidently available?

Hi Parmjit,

I’d like to apologise on behalf of the Project Transform team that this change in venue wasn’t communicated.

The Physics venue was chosen as this session was aimed primarily at staff within the Faculty of Science and this was a more suitable location. Staff in the Faculty of Science were made aware of this change but unfortunately this wasn’t communicated at a wider level.

Once again I do apologise for the inconvenience caused to any staff. All staff are welcome to attend any of the remaining sessions listed above.

Thanks,
Ryan
