Peter Draper moves on to Sydney

I’m still in Australia!

The ISSoTL (International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) conference finished last Friday. I took a plane from Melbourne to Sydney, and this week I have been doing some work at the University of Wollongong.  On Monday I gave a seminar to WATTLE – the Wollongong Academy of Tertiary Teaching and Learning Excellence (evidently the wattle bird is a significant local symbol).  The title of my workshop was ‘On the way to being a SoTL scholar’.  About 25 people attended and fully engaged with my presentation.
Peter continues to keep people awake

Today I spent some time in Sydney with Professor Patrick Crookes.  We visited a nursing museum.  We intended just to pop round in about 10 minutes, but the matron (that’s the only word for her, really) insisted on showing us the whole thing, including a detailed explanation of everyone in each of the sepia-tinted photographs.  I took some pictures of ancient anaesthetic machines especially for Deborah and the ODP team.

Tomorrow – Wednesday – I’ll be doing another workshop, this time for the nursing department.  I’ll be speaking about the use of creative writing techniques in nursing education and inviting colleagues to collaborate who are interested in researching the use of language in healthcare.

I’ll be back on Monday, bright and early! I hope my plants haven’t died.

See you next week
