Yesterday saw PABs run from 9:30 to 4 covering all our HE programs. For the uninitiated, Program Assessment Boards review and confirm student progress. PABs grant supplementary assessment, confirm academic progress including identifying at risk students, those ready to graduate and students for prizes and awards. This semester there were added complexities to ensure appropriate application of COVID policy changes and the need to run the entire process online.
Andreas Meyer, who heads the Swiss rail system which runs like clockwork, would have been impressed by the efficiency and precision with which the day progressed.
Tammy and her team are to be congratulated on the high quality of the data provided and streamlined organisation of the day. The Associate Deans and PMs helped coordinate a strong process and all course coordinators who attended provided good input.
My thanks to all for a very successful day.
