Once again I was astonished by the versatility of my colleague C. Sitting to the left of me, he chaired Monday’s meeting – while simultaneously presenting his report in person from the other side of the table.
I liked C’s report, but repeated my comment that the section on feedback had too great a focus on feedback to students and not enough on feedback to external examiners. C gave the impression that this was the first time that he had heard this remark, even though we had discussed this issue at length at our pre-meeting on Friday.
During a visit to the ladies’ toilets after my early departure from the meeting I spilt tap water on my khaki trousers. This transformed them into a pair of emerald green elephant cords.
