Request from BT to tweak an existing web vote already set up by Stew; I've done that. Second request from the English dept for a completely new ballot, which I've set up in the live db through the new form-based interface, after finding that the test instance is a bit borked at the moment. Hopefully all goes well; it looks OK to me.

Before Christmas, arranged to chat with JS on Graduate Certificate. After DH committee meeting added in topic of plans for MakerLab and how Pat might help support that (as part of his lab-support duties).
Re Graduate Certificate : JS is leading effort (along with MC in Dean's office) of redrafting academic terms of program. Currents students are being supported. He's looking at a "certificate" model and a "concentration" model, which have different implementation implications regarding nature of integration with rest of graduate course and project work. Concern is to keep amount of work reasonable within a 2-year MA program, and providing qualified instructors across various disciplines.
Re MakerLab : JS with Deans of Humanities and Fine Arts are working out a deal to have the lab supported by both faculties and providing activities that entail participation by students from both faculties. Sees an opportunity for Pat to possibly provide user support and training on the technologies in the lab (likely fine arts people would provide technical support on the equipment).
