Wikis could be very useful especially where is there a group of people trying to organise an event for example. We are already showing its uses by putting the staff meeting agenda up for staff to add anything they would like raised. In term of reseachers using it perhaps it leads to "blue sky" thinking as everyone contributes new ideas.

Because I'm a bit of a creep and following in our illustrious leader's footsteps, I thought I would also comment on this morning's activities. By the end of follow that book I was quite exhausted!! It has revealed to me how hard working all my colleagues are and very interesting to find out what part everyone plays. It is easy to become rather insular while doing your own work. Also it can highlight where things maybe improved on in terms of streamlining certain tasks.
We've been asked to talk about how we felt actually teaching rather than being on the other side. Personally I think it does make you consider what you do and try to put it over in a logical order so people can understand. Sometimes nerves can get in the way but then I sometimes give talks at Audley End to the general public which can be far scarier especially when you cannot remember your 1066 and all that!!
PS. This doesn't mean I want to do this regularly and become a public speaker!!
