Not in the case of Archaeology. Might be nice to prove we can run a really good strand, have regular sessions and all do it nicely.

I think instead of a media strand have a music one, an art & photography one and a film/machinima one. That way we can cover broader subjects

quoting myself, what has the world coming to?

i honestly  agree there should be staff leaders, but anyone can be an assistant....i think this would help get the show on the road, also i agree with faz's multi strand comment, it would help us be more clearer with these things...

In saying that I think we need to re-establish staff led strands I was certainly not suggesting that there shouldn't be student led strands. It would be great if there were both. The point I was trying (clearly not very successfully) to make, is that we need to build in the expertise that we have in the community, and some of that resides in the staff, and so staff need to be more proactive in leading activities in future.

I also said that we needed two or three really strong strands. I guess I was thinking that these were likely to be staff led. However, it would be even better if, as Mars suggested, the students could prove that they could run a really effective strand.

Remember that strands are just one type of activity that I have suggested - others included projects, regular events, one off events, etc..

That then takes us back to the question of what those strands should be ...

In deciding upon this we need to balance the expertise in the community with the interests of community members - no point having a strand that nobody wants to be part of! So I guess there are two questions here:
a) What would people be interested in learning about (ie what strands would people like)?
b) What expertise do we have to draw upon (ie what strands could we run really well)?

You could have things like tutorials, introduction to the island (ie thing to orinatate you etc) have some info on strands put up and coming events in them and have some music composed by schomers etc.

Eli and I kicked off a maths group just before Christmas and early indications are that this could be useful to lots of people if we work together - meaning that it should be student-driven in terms of topic and Eli and I are happy to prepare sessions based on those drivers.

We also have another project that we'd like to start when the island is open again, working on an interactive sculpture.  Don't want to say too much about this now, but it will take several sessions to complete and everyone who participates will get the chance to learn/practice several different skills and have absolutely equal input to the finished piece.
