The world of higher education

What a challenge working in higher education has become these days. Keeping open many "windows of opportunity" sits at the centre of the modern university. The skills needed to teach seems to only be a small component of what we are doing these days.

A new term is here and we already have almost 5000 students registered - all done online these days. We even take their fees that way and they get their results ... and so on. Email communication is the norm. The impact of computer technology in making things happen is amazing. That's one of my interests, how we try to integrate the technology so that it appears invisible AND effective.

The modern university has to keep moving forward and here at Hope we are trying to ensure that we provide our students with the highest quality education possible. And that's where the Development Office comes in. So we are here to try to make a difference, by getting support from our friends.

So if you have thought about volunteering your support or helping us, please let us know. We can use all the help we can get. Get in touch with us on alumni@hope.ac.uk
