Time for change…


So after just over three years I am leaving the University of Leicester at the end of this month. I have enjoyed my time there, pharmacy particularly working with colleagues in the Institute of Learning Innovation. I want to thank them for their hard work and endless enthusiasm. We achieved a lot; over 500 K euros worth of EU projects and around 500 K of consultancy work. I take up a new post at the University of Bath Spa in the New Year, buy which I am looking forward to very much. In addition to having a chair in education, I will have a cross-institutional remit in terms of e-learning, which is great! Bath Spa has an excellent school of education. It is a beautiful campus, located outside of Bath, surrounded by parkland. I am looking forward very much to working with colleagues there to enhance Bath Spa’s use of technologies to support learning. Oh and I am seriously thinking of buying a narrow boat ;-)

    Bath Spa is great - has a really good Music Dept!! Enjoy! Narrowboats are good too but remember that they are often described as a large hole in the water into which you pour money.

    Good luck Grainne - and watch out for Prof. Andrew Hugill - he’s a troublemaker.
