Event description
Join us for the HWSC Staff Development Day on Thursday 27th February.

About this Event

This year's HWSC Staff Development Day has been shaped around the suggestions you provided in the feedback from last year’s event. The workshops will cover a range of topics, from how technology is helping to enhance our courses, to improving our Wellbeing. There will be something for everybody.

Event programme:

10:00 – 10:30 Refreshments – Juniper Suite

10:30 – 11:20 Welcome from Dr Sally Boyle, Head of School, and a talk from a keynote speaker – Hub Theatre

14:30 – 15:15 Workshops - Christodoulou meeting rooms

15:20 – 15:30 Closing Plenary and refreshments – Hub Theatre

We encourage everybody to attend the day in person to enable you to meet HWSC colleagues and take part in the various workshops. Any reasonable expenses incurred by travel or accommodation by Nations and Regions colleagues attending the event can be claimed back. Please contact WELS-Events@open.ac.uk

We are finalising the details of the workshops. A separate communication will be sent to you with the details of the workshops and how to book.

Celebration Tree:

As part of our Development day we thought it would be a good idea to record and reflect on our achievements over the past year. There are three categories to consider: work, research and personal achievement. All the achievements will be recorded on a special tag and hung from our own ‘HWSC Achievement Tree’.

Please have a think about what you’ve achieved over the last year, it could be having a paper you’ve written published, started a new role or completed that bit of DIY you kept putting off.

The tags will be available in the Post Room for you to record your particular achievement. Blue tags for work, pink for research and yellow for personal. If you would prefer to send your achievement through via email for us to record that would be equally acceptable. Please send to WELS-Events@open.ac.uk

All achievements need to be recorded by FRIDAY 21st FEBRUARY.

After the Development Day the tags will be on display within Horlock.

We very much hope you will attend what promises to be an inspiring day.

Best wishes

Dr Sally Boyle

Head of School: Health, Wellbeing and Social Care - WELS
