It's taken a while, but work is picking up day by day. So I should hope, with the start of lectures just over a week away.
Anyway, we are getting lots of requests for changes to courses, and lots of clever schemes that staff want to implement by the 20th of February. Eternal optimism strikes academics at this time of year; it's great to see them trying to do better and brighter things with their courses. And of course the students get a more interesting and engaging course, which hopefully means they learn more, and enjoy it more.
Still, I could have done without a major college sending us changes to all their 4th year courses a week before we start. They've known about this change for three months, it turns out. Oh well, I got it done.
