MAW - Management of Academic Workloads


Workshop 7 Consolidation - 12th June 2009

Workshop Update

The workshop at Brunel held on the 12th of June consolidated work in numerous areas. It covered the main models that can be used to classify institutional approaches to MAW and looked more deeply across the organisational levels and the issues that have to be addressed at the interfaces in MAW development and implentation. Work on the day also covered Five- year action plans presented by the members and the progress that had been made to date in their work. Finally time was spent making arrangements for the launch of the project findings  at the event in September and looking at follow on activity for the year ahead.


 A work shop will be held at Brunel University on Friday the 12th of June.
