I am writing to let you know that Kath Glasswell has decided to step down as Associate Dean, Education and reduce her fraction in order to prioritise family commitments.
Kath has made a wonderful contribution since she took up the role. She has led the Education discipline with a unique and skilful blend of big picture thinking and attention to detail. She has worked to put systems into place that will continue to improve our practices, including the development of a new approach to LANTITE to support our students. I will miss her as a leader of the discipline and colleague on SLG. At the same time I am pleased to have her expertise back in the literacy team. As a member of the professoriate she will continue to work on major initiatives in and beyond the school.
From July 17 Jeff Brooks will move into the role as Acting Associate Dean, Education, combining this with his role as Associate Dean, R&I. My thanks to Jeff for this additional support over this period. I know he is looking forward to working with the Education team over the coming months.
