Reflections at Leeds Met

In the past few years, Leeds Metropolitan University has established a nice tradition of daily reflections, found on the right bar on the Leeds Met web site. Here, our Vice Chancellor Simon Lee provides a daily insight into events and is thinking, and there are reflections by staff members from all faculties about international matters (every time we go on a university-related travel abroad, we are supposed to submit a reflection here - there are a few by myself there), research matters, assessment/teaching/learning, sports activities, and ethics. Quite a universe of thoughts which is spanned open here by these reflections which reflect the wide range of opinions, thoughts, and activities going on at our university.

I quite like these reflections and read them every day - they are a valuable source of information on what is going on. Have not seen any other uni doing this...
