ICOS AGM and Annual Seminar 2018


ICOS AGM and Annual Seminar 2018

ICOS AGM (11:00-13:00)
ICOS’ 2018 AGM, as in other years, will offer members the opportunity to influence decisions about the organisation’s future. The Board and staff will report on 2017 activities and also ask members to consider future plans and challenges. In the context of a changing HE landscape, is ICOS’ current organisational structure fit-for-purpose and are we flexible and responsive enough on the issues we feel passionate about and which impact on our sector? This year, we are as usual, seeking new talent for our Board and have a number of vacancies to fill as well as two new membership applications to consider.
ICOS Annual Seminar (14:00-16:30)
Orientation programmes are an important support for international students as they begin the transition to life and study in a new environment. Early student engagement and positive first impressions are key ingredients for a successful and rewarding student experience. It is crucial, therefore, that a lot of consideration and planning should go into the development of effective orientation programmes for all students.  Drawing on expertise and experience from both at home and abroad, the ICOS seminar this year will consider different approaches to student orientation.
