The cluster met together for their first CAMEL meeting last week where the 3 project teams came together to share more details on their projects. The projects are concentrating on different aspects of curriculum design but with common areas of interest such as mapping the exisitng curriculum design processes in their institutions and representing designs. All are looking at approaches to design but within different contexts and from different perspectives. Our main aim for the meeting was to identify some common activities from which we could all benefit. The suggested areas for collaboration have been posted by Grainne. It wil be great if all the projects start to share thoughts and activities within cloudworks so that we can see developments as they happen. The meeting had lots of interesting discussion. Mapping the 'informal processes' that academics use in design is of particular interest to me and how theses informal processes relate to the formal institutional processes. If we can represent these informal processes it might help us to align the formal processes more to the lecturers needs which would be really useful. As critical friend to the cluster I am trying to support each of the projects and also facilitating working together across the cluster. The meeting was very positive with many 'conversations' between different project team members, and we had a great meal on Monday evening.
