Margaret Christian and I had a very welcome opportunity this morning to present PC3 to Leeds Met’s Mainstream meeting, a meeting of senior staff (including Associate Deans, Chief Operating Officers, PVCs and the Vice Chancellor) with a brief to explore future avenues for the University. The discussion ranged round potential learner groups, technology and integration issues, and how far elements of the PC3 framework are currently in place around the institution. This was followed by consideration of sharing resources – another aspect we are working on supported by JISC – and one which will be core to the success of PC3.

Overall it went extremely well leading to an opportunity to speak to the new Carnegie Graduate School, which will be leading masters provision across the institution – and another potential user group to follow up. This engagement with senior management is vital to the success of the project and it is encouraging to have such a genuinely positive response.
