(One of the ST Division Meetings.)

ST 2014-02-21: 11.00-12.00 in EDIT-8103


  • Course clusters and corresponding teaching teams
    • As discussed earlier (ST2013-03, ST2013-12) we are in the process of organising our Courses in TeachingTeams (course clusters).
    • This meeting will settle the Course clusters (teaching teams) for 2014 including identifying a Cluster Chair for each cluster.
    • Each cluster should then identify (at least) one "understudy" for each course.
  • Towards a "Computing Lab": Center discussion status report (Mary, Laura, Emil)


  • Workshops on VR proposal writing
    • Sally McKee, Mary Sheeran and Per Strenström will run a couple of workshops on VR proposal writing in the first and second weeks of March (as follow-up to a discussion at the medarbetarskap workshop that Mary, Per, Gerardo Schneider and Miroslav Staron attended). We are looking both for people who want to attend the workshops to get help with proposal writing, and also others who are willing to help by mentoring these people and providing feedback on proposal plans and drafts. Mary needs to know who from the ST division wishes to be involved in this enterprise. The more the merrier!
