In attendance: Neil Heatley Head of ISS, Kendal Reid ITO, Carol Dow Computing Support Officer, Karen Davidson Student Support Officer

Apologies: Stuart Anderson, Director of Learning & Teaching

UG1
All students are busy revising.  It was asked if maybe another room other than the South Lab on Level 5 could be a quiet space, maybe on level 3?  The Reps will ask for students thoughts on this.

UG2
There are some problems with students on joint courses such as Physics and Engineering based at King’s Buildings.  The School is aware that core courses can be an issue getting back and forward from KB to Central but hopefully in time these issues will be resolved via the Timetabling Unit, but has always been an issue due to academics being available at certain times, room bookings, etc.  The School does it’s best to liaise with the other Schools but sometimes these things are unavoidable.

IAML can the on-line videos have transcripts? Carol will talk to Alex Burford
