A highlight of the SSU visit was the Wednesday 27th of February launch of IADT's new Strategic Plan. The SSU team got an opportunity to meet our Minister of State for Higher Education Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD, who was delighted to welcome the team to our Institute and to Ireland.
On Wednesday 27th in the Boardroom of the Media Cube, we experienced something of a 'eureka moment' in our IADT Cabinet project. There followed a fantastic session on the morning of Thursday 28th, with Colm Hennessy, Pat Moffatt, David Doyle, Elena Somoza, Bernard Mullarkey and the Sumy representatives.
High point amongst the 'cultural activities' was Thursday's visit to TCD's Long Room and The Book of Kells.
Some of us will likely travel to Sumy in June 2019, to conduct a formal Peer Review and Report on the SSU Cabinet system, as well as discussing any possible IADT cabinet and e-learning initiatives!
Of course, the moment our Sumy visitors departed, the Spring weather finished in Ireland and the snow (briefly) arrived!
