Hi, the following:

“1415-1445 Colm Harmon (UCD) – Education and Innovation Strategies”

brought a question back to me that had been in my mind recently.

Has the international reputation of our academic qualifications been a victim of collateral damage from the economic mismanagement?


Philip, it would be great to see this event webcast, for those of us who can’t be there.


@John Hill
We cannot meet the cost of webcasting live but will be trying to record (literally on a camcorder!) and most likely distribute via iTunes (search for UCD Geary Institute for current video podcasts) but it is in the hands of the Gods somewhat as to whether this will happen.
