Happy to work with anyone…
Over the past few months we’ve been reviewing the guidelines put in place in order to create a strong working relationship between students and staff.
What has happened so far
To start this process we held a workshop with a cross section of staff and students to look at how we want to work together, and how we can create a new set of guidelines to resolve and problems.
The resulting feedback was turned into a draft policy and will be eventually presented to a Trustee Board and Council meeting later on in the year.
What is coming up
However, before that we were looking at how we can deliver a more creative way to help you engage with this process, and so will be running a fairly unique workshop next week.
We’re inviting in the Arc Theatre company who are going to bring to life the policy in a special workshop on Wednesday 17th April from 4pm-5pm in the Cube (Level 2, Building 42) called “Working in Partnership”. The company will use a technique called Forum Theatre to involve audience interaction to shape how the issues are presented and explored.
How can you input?
There are two ways in which I would love for you to offer your input into this process.
- Book a place to attend the workshop next Wednesday by emailing Eileen Bharji (email@example.com) with your name and role in the Union, whether you are a staff, student, member of support staff, Union Councillor, Trustee. This is to ensure we have a good mixture of different groups attending and giving their opinions.
- Feedback your constructive comments on the draft either by emailing me directly with your views (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by posting a comment on this blog. The draft deliberately does not have many prescriptive sentences as this is intending to be finalized during this consultation process. Also the Frequently Asked Questions section is deliberately short so that we can use your input to add real questions and answers.
I look forward to seeing lots of you at the workshop, and reading comments below
