The Academic Retreat 2014/15, with a wish to share long-term development in educational goals and expertise among teaching staff from School of Business, was successfully held at the Regal Riverside Hotel on 19 June 2015. Over 30 academic staff participated in the Academic Retreat.
After the buffet lunch, academic staff formed groups to discuss specific topics and share their views on School Academic Plan, Key Profile Indicators, Academic Programmes Development, Research Development and international and local accreditation such as the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and Programme Area Accreditation (PAA).
To facilitate interaction, each group was invited to give a presentation after discussion, while the participants listened attentively and acknowledged others’ opinions.
It was a pleasure to see that the Retreat has served as a great platform for academic staff to exchange their views and participants have spent a fruitful and relaxing Friday.
