On Wednesday 8th March I presented a condensed version of the English Faculty report to the Board of Trustees. I was quite nervous about this when I began my presentation but they quickly made me feel at ease even though a lot of questions were asked. Fortunately, I was able to answer the questions and also had help from James in explaining anything that was not fully understood.
I began by explaining what our department had done in 2016. This included the PD that some people had completed, the developing confidence of using technology to enable our pedagogy and the addition of some Furnware.
After this I explained what the goals for 2017 are. Check out the presentation for a general overview:
Overall, it was a good experience and I enjoyed showing off about our awesome department and the journey that we are on. Tim, who also presented, and I received a lovely email from James afterwards.
Good morning Christine and Tim
I was so very proud to be sitting with the Board last night, enjoying your presentations.
The Board were so impressed with your genuine interest in our learners’ achievement, your honesty, and your willingness to keep looking for ways to engage our learners. And of course, the obvious hard work and commitment all this takes as you lead your teams.
Thank you for your excellent contribution to our learners and the College as a whole.
Have a good day
